Shine When It's Dark

Still in the office, working while waiting to go for dinner...

I have a blank mind now, or I just have too many in mind which makes me felt that it's blank, you know those when you can imagine have hundreds or thousands of flash card flashing in front of your eyes, that you don't even have the time to properly what was the image and you have to move on to the next one? Ended up you will be as blur as it is, and don't know what was it all about.

What's life without up or down right, but make sure when 'down' is here to greet you, welcome them with your open arms, because you won't know 'up' might be following 'down' closely from behind, so if you choose to ignore 'down', you will missed 'up' too...

I guessed it applies the same to what if life is always that good, without seeing the dark side, we never know how bright is bright, how dark is dark, to strike a balance, these 2 comes in a combo, to make sure you see things clearly.

Try this, if the sun is shining too bright, you know that kind of brightness where you can't even see what's surrounding you? Put on you shades and there, you can see clearly whats on your left and right already. 
A little bit of dark makes you see clearer, don't you agree?

When is the brightness going to shine on me? Soon I guess...

I don't know...
It seems alright at first, now it seems weird...
It's either I clearly know what I actually wanted, or it's just me fated to be like this...

Lightning? How long can it last? End like a lightning too?

Good Morning Sunday

**Random Update**
Had a good company these 2 days because I got a room mate with me - Elise Tay, one of the Singapore nuffie came down to KL to eat.pray.love. =P

I am sure we did gave her many to eat, plenty of love,but pray, okay not sure if I should bring her to a temple before she goes back to Singapore later in the afternoon. =P

Will be taking plenty of pictures before she leaves, so shall update again!

Besides that, there were quite a lot of happenings this week, feels like it's been the longest week and it felt like a year, everything seems to move just too fast within a week, not a bad thing. =)

Till then, I think I put on quite a lot of weight, you know why?

Because I have been having dessert lately, and I wasn't a dessert person before, things change. >.<
(Was having 2 ice creams at once while chilling with Jenhan and Kim weeks ago)

Am I the eating monster now?

Shall end with a quote :
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."  ~ Confucius

Counting By Marbles

This is quite a long story, but if you have the patient to read it, I guess you will gain something today. =)
I was cleaning my room when my cupboard was attacked by the termites, I found this really old newspaper clipping, the date was 2nd November 2003, a 7 years old story which I kept it long enough, to again remind me how much I shall treasure things in life and not let regrets take over when you have little time left on earth, so I thought I would want to share with you, who are reading my blog now.

The older I get, the more I enjoy Saturday mornings. Perhaps it's the quiet solitude that comes with being the first one to rise, or maybe it's the unbounded joy of not having to be at work. Either way, the first few hours of Saturday morning are most enjoyable. A few weeks ago, I was shuffling towards the kitchen with a teaming cup of coffee in hand and the morning paper in the other hand. What began as a typical Saturday morning turned into one of those lessons that life seems to hand you from time to time.

I turned the volume up on my radio in order to listen to a Saturday morning talk show. I heard an older sounding chap with a golden voice. You know the kind like he should be in the broadcasting industry.

He was talking about 'a thousand marbles' to someone named 'Tom'. I was intrigued and sat down to listen to what he had to say.

"Well Tom, it sure sounds like you're busy with your job. I'm sure they pay you well but it's a shame you have to be away from home and your family so much. Hard to believe young fellow should have to wok 60 or 70 hours a week to make ends meet, Too bad you missed your daughter's dance recital.
He continued, " Let me tell you something, Tom : Something that has helped me keep a good respective on my own priorities."

And that's when he began to explain his theory of a 'Thousand marbles."

"You see, I sat down one day and did a little arithmetic. The average person person lives about 75 years. I know, some live more and some less, but on average, folks live about 75 years old.
Now then, I multiplied 75 times 52 and I came up with 3,900 which is the number of Saturdays that the average person has in their entire life.
It took me until I was 55 years old to think about all this in any detail and by the time I had lived through over twenty-eight hundred Saturdays, I got to thinking that if I lived to be 75, I only had a thousand of them left to enjoy.
So I went to a toy store and bought every single marble they had, having ended up visiting 3 toy stores to round up 1,000 marbles, I took them home and put them inside of a large, clear plastic container right here next to the radio. Every Saturday since then, I have taken one marble out and thrown it away.
I found that by watching the marbles diminish, I focused more on the really important things in life. There is nothing like watching your time here on earth run out to help you get your priorities straight. 
Now let me tell you one last thing before I sign off with you and take my family out for a breakfast. This morning I took the very last marble out of the container. I figure if I make it until next Saturday then I have been given a little extra time. And the one thing we can all use is a little more time."

You could have heard a pin drop when he finished. Even the show's moderator didn't have anything to say for a few moments. I guess he gave us all a lot to think about.
I had planned to do some work that morning and go to the gym. Instead I went upstairs and woke my wife up with a kiss and ask her out for a breakfast. "What brought this on?" She asked with a smile.
"Oh nothing honey, it's just been a long time since we spent a Saturday together with the kids. Hey can we stop by a toy store later? I need to buy some marbles..."

I was only 18 years old when I read this article, and I knew I have to keep it by pinning this on my little DIY board in my old house. I still remembered after reading this, I actually went to both my parents and read it out loud to them when they were having breakfast, I never felt how inspiring my Saturday morning was, and now I still feels the same after reading it every time, something to keep us thinking how limited time we have on earth, and how much we can really do when we are still young, and never too late to realize the priorities in life you have once set.

I hope you felt the same way like I do after reading this entry, if you think you want to share it with your friends, spread the love.
Till then, cheers and have a great Sunday morning. ^^

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. 

-Robert Frost-

How many of us actually took the road less traveled? How many of us actually gotten the courage to risk in chasing dreams? If you were given the chance, will you do it for yourself? 
Chances are not given by anyone but yourself, we create our own opportunity and go for it, I believe in that, and you?

Watching myself in 10 years time, and see if I already took a big step and being happy that I chose to chase my dreams instead of playing safe.

We'll see...

My dad was just sharing a story about all this snatch thieves and robbery happening so often now, that being a girl walking on a street is just a disadvantage (there goes my courage to tell him what I planned to do...)

Was thinking about you snatch thieves and robbers, I wonder how you feel stealing things from people who are not prepared for you coming, you snatch and made your victim fall thus hurting themselves.

I wonder, do you feel good keeping things that once belongs NOT to you but someone else? I hope you really feel insecure and paranoid about everything, that soon someone will just knock on your door and claim back the things you took from them.

I actually pity that you have to live your life in the dark and being paranoid all the time.

Good Night Monday

Been sleeping late these few weeks, not staying up on purpose, but just don't realize that time flies...
Another week has begun, and the second day of the week has ended, how fast... T_T

Skin getting really bad these days, and I am putting on weight like no one's business...
I need some exercise, but I just don't have the time, or the energy to go after working hours, or even weekends, I want to go cycling though, last time I used to go Bukit Cahaya to cycle and I do remember how interesting the insects were, they were HUGE! Reminded me of that spider that I spotted in my brother's room, which I thought it was from the freaking dinosaur age, long skinny legs, with an oval body, until now I can still picture it in my mind, damn creepy. (FYI I am okay with all kinds of insects but not arachnid)

Going off for a short break this week, let's hope I will loose some weight when I am back to KL and not putting on more...
Also early greetings to my fellow Hindu friends, Happy Deepavali!
Till then, I shall visit SPCA soon since it's so near my place. =)
