Hey Tae and Souppy, you two started with a long distance relationship. What's the secret to a successful ldr? I'm in one with a girl who is literally "perfect", I couldn't ask for more, and I'd hate for something bad to happen that'd ruin us.... Any advice?

Veronica: As long as I can communicate with Souppy, I’m happy. iChat, Skype, Twitter, it’s all good! I know some people can’t live without physical intimacy, but I can survive fine without it as I had no choice during the first few years of us living apart. I mean, it would be AWESOME to hug and cuddle and kiss, but I fell for Souppy because of what we talked about and his sense of humour and his personality, so a nice AIM session with him tides me over and if that tides you over then I can see the relationship working in the long-distance!

I’ve heard of people breaking up with their partners because they can’t physically touch them and I always found that bizarre. I guess it’s sorta understandable if the relationship didn’t start off long-distance, but I dunno.. if you love someone shouldn’t you be able to deal with anything???

I guess just be as open as possible about talking about things, you can send your partner packages as well as a token of affection if you have the ability to do that!! Sometimes letters are romantic ;_; And if you live in different countries, it’s fun to receive country-exclusive goods! I sent Souppy Amor cookies and Reeses as well as my school newspaper, and Souppy sent me back Freddo Frog and Milky bars! We even sent each other clothes, it was nice wearing his sweater and knowing he’s worn it ;__; Maybe that’s corny as hell, bUT WHATEVER


You have to want it. You have to want it more than anybody else could possibly want it. Then you have to work for it. You have to work harder than anybody else could possibly work. Then you have to sacrifice. You have to sacrifice more than anybody else could possibly sacrifice. Then you have to suffer. You have to suffer more than anybody else could possibly suffer. Then you have to do it again…and again…and again.

One of the secrets to success is recognizing that motivation follows action. The momentum of continuous action fuels motivation, while procrastination kills motivation.

Salah is the key to our success in this world and the next. 

But if we do not look after this key or lose it, we’ll not be able to unlock the doors that lead to the good in this life and the next – it’s as simple as that. Poor quality of salah is like not reaping full benefits of a powerful life management tool given to us by the Creator of Life Himself! Undoubtedly, when our salah is in good condition, we’ll notice that all the other life affairs also naturally fall into their right places with ease, InshaAllah. Times of ease become more joyful and times of difficulties become easy, or at the very least become bearable.

“It is the believers who are successful: those who are humble in their prayer” 

[Surah Al-Mu'minun | Verses 1, 2]
