Dear Shilpa,

Remember how we first met? It was 7 years ago on the bus from
Singapore to KL during the BC offsite, our 1st in the company. I’ve
known you ever since then and you’re unlike anyone else I’ve ever met.
Your commitment to making the most of your life is so admirable (so is
your utter perseverance with blogging everyday!) that I put you on my
list of favorite women in the world. I’m so proud to know someone like
you and more so, to have you as a friend. I hope you keep this up,
even after the baby arrives.
