Love yourself

Posted on: Tuesday, April 19, 2016

You have to fight for yourself - because no one's going to fight for you, and no one's going to protect you. Even people you love and trust can throw you under the bus. We can't dance in the sun forever. Love yourself - always.

Negativity

Posted on: Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Food poisoning left me bedridden for 2 days. I think that was the first time in years I was that unwell and I don't want to feel that way ever again :( Thankfully I was brought to the clinic when I couldn't even pull myself out of bed.On an unrelated note, I think i'm finding myself in some sort of limbo. And something's lacking. Feel pretty unfulfilled and unhappy with where I am currently. I nee...

Presenting the Grand Seafood Platter.....The day saw me stuffing my face with seafood and a bottle of white, followed by some shopping at my all-time fav MBS... and the night saw me going through a plate of A5 wagyu, supplemented with some fried hokkien mee, orh luak and of course a bottle of red (don't ask me why the combination but it was good - minus the fact that I felt I was swimming in oil a...

2015 was challenging. I faced many new ups and downs, and many new struggles. For the first time, I truly understood the essence of "time management". It's a zero sum game really, and the struggle is real. Sometimes I look back and I wish I made better decisions. Sometimes I wish I spent more time with who really matters - and that brings me to wondering what in the world I end up doing with my ti...

I'M BACK (2016)

Posted on: Sunday, February 21, 2016

This is me coming back to writing. I do realize that I haven't been updating as much as before and I suppose its part laziness and part lack of time. 60/40. It's quite sad too because I actually enjoy writing and going through my posts - especially years down the road, laughing or smiling fondly at the memories made. I don't have a very good memory to begin with, and because I no longer play mahjo...

Today I took the day off just to be alone. And I had so many realizations that everything is so overwhelming right now. There's so much I need to do to make things right. And above all, Family first. For always. The biggest piece of my heart.

Love doesn’t start off difficult to believe in.The first, even the second time you love someone, you’re starry-eyed and openhearted. You rush into relationships with the unshakeable eagerness of a toddler trying their first solid food. You’ve been starved for real love all of your life and suddenly there it is – available to you in abundance! So you give and you take and you want and you d...

"I hope you find a man who doesn’t just give you flowers and calls you beautiful, I hope you find a man who visits your family when you’re homesick. I hope he goes with you to see your sick grandma in the hospital, I hope he gives you space when you need to be alone and grace when you are not patient with him. I hope you find a good man, one who will love you for who you are and not what you c...

Let me tell you this, someone is gonna love you so much that it will hurt. It’s gonna make them feel like their heart is a glass that is overflowing, and that they cannot contain all that they feel for you. They are gonna look up at the stars, and wonder why love couldn’t just be placed in space, because the endless expanse seems like a more fitting place to store the fire that burns within th...

I'm so tired everyday. I used to have troubles falling asleep at night but I don't seem to ever face such issues anymore. I spend so much of my day talking that I lose all energy to engage in as much conversations as I do at night. I'm totally drained out and I often just want/need to sleep/rest.Time to reboot again.

Thinking Out Loud

Posted on: Tuesday, July 14, 2015

And I feel that with each time this happens, a part of me kind of dies along with it. Like how things get easily deleted, some things just slowly somewhat follow suit. When I reach this point, I always wonder to myself why I even chose to in the first place. I'm not at breaking point... But I'm... Hugely affected. And that's as much as I can say right now.Sweep.

I sat and thought, of how different my life is now from how it was a year ago. I had all the time in the world, and I often spent long hours thinking of how I was going to spend all that spare time I had. I no longer have that luxury, but no I'm not saying it's all that bad - though I'm really not saying it's all that great either. I guess, things have somewhat fallen into perspective? I feel more...
