Three years ago...

On February 28th, I got an email from someone, his username: dkfour. Such a nice letter . Though, I felt bad coz I couldn't reply it since I have no credit card .

To: YY_Makassar
From: dkfour
Subject: Asalaamu alaikum

Greetings from the USA!

Although I've heard of Indonesia, I can't say that I know a whole lot about it. Your island sounds very lovely, and I'm sure it's beautiful there right now.

I see that you work with the environment, but you don't mention how. I feel very strongly about the environment and when I was younger I spent a lot of time in the woods camping and hiking. I'd love to know a little more about what it is that you do for a living.

Your profile mentions that you speak another language, I assume that that must be your local clan's language. I, unfortunatly, only speak English, but I guess if there is only one language you speak, English isn't the worst.

Please write back soon,
David

But I guess Allah wanted this first contact to be a life contract . We then chat over yahoo messenger for the first time (by accident! really!!!) on March 1st during my lunch break at the office back in Makassar.

And today? Now? I'm chatting (in a real "online"... not thru' internet *wink*) with my loving husband, hugging on the couch while watching our precious little Zahra's asleep on her bouncer... his username is dkfour.

I love you, David... with all of me ...

What a touching story. It reminds us how we got to know each other for the first time. It was also through an email. From an email of curiosity we met our destiny.
Yaty, there's nothing happens in life by accident as everything has been prescribed by Allah SWT.

Little Zahra is so adorable mashallah. Big kisses and hug from us.

You're so right, Miya! Semua sudah direncanakan-Nya dengan indah. Padahal yang namanya bulé sa ndak terlalu suka... ternyata yang ini yang dipilihkan Allah dan setiap saat saya syukuri karena diberi pasangan hidup yang begitu baek (hehehe... yang dipilihkan-Nya pasti yang terbaik!).

Big kisses and hugs balik from Zahra buat Tante Miya dan Uncle Dom
