2016 saw dramatic changes of my relocation from Perth to Denmark. It was meant to be a 6 months stay which extended to a year. If I had kept my original plan, I would be leaving Denmark for Singapore a day before Valentine’s day. 2016 ended with a visit in Copenhagen, a “field trip” as described… Read More Whirlwind into 2017
The weather is taking a cooler turn, and I thought it would be such a good idea to take a mini “exploration” into the forest-ish trail to clear my head for a bit. So, I am clad in my favorite red jacket (which is my only jacket as I decided to leave all my thick warm… Read More Vampire Walk – Limited by the Sun
I have arrived in Odense, Denmark for slightly more than a week now. There hasn’t been much time to “settle in” to the new environment. I was beyond exhausted since the Master Class for Asperger’s in Perth, followed by endless feasting and shopping for 3 days in Singapore, finally the last leg of 15 hours… Read More New Chapter in Odense, Denmark
There is a philosopher in me, and it should not come as a surprise. I am an idealist and would die for a good romance. The basics of philosophy highlight the emotional self-awareness – the philosophical movement of romanticism. Although it opposes the rationalization derived from sciences to explain nature, such notion is seemingly fading.… Read More The Promise
Sometimes we pick up the old pair of shoes and put them on again, because we don’t have other pair of shoes, or we are just too lazy to find another pair that fits. Or worse, we are on a rebound! (You don’t believe? You haven’t meet enough women who are crazy about shoes, they mourn over shoes! – I am not one of them, I am a one pair of shoes woman, literally!)
When we have no shoes, or too impatient to hunt for that perfect pair again, we compromise for less, much less, and conveniently forget the pain that this pair of old shoes once brought. Perhaps there was a time that it fitted quite well, but that time has passed, yet we convinced ourselves that we could rekindle the good old comforting feelings once again.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that all old shoes are no good. I am saying that the problematic ones are problematic.… Read More The Lesson of Bad Old Shoes
There was at time when I walked through life in surreality. Everything seemed floating and unreal. I was convinced that if I were to close my eyes, everything will STOP and nothing mattered. It wasn’t about death, it was about the unconsciousness in reality. Have you wondered? What happened when you slept? My world stopped… Read More Surreality
Minutes passed. He broke the silence by explaining why he was being defensive earlier. I assured him that I bore no grudge and I understood. Passengers can be very difficult; people can be difficult and unreasonable. People blame people when things go wrong.
It is sad to observe that people are quick to criticize, doubt, judge and choose to deny good. When different things happen in our life, they teach us something new; when same things happen in our life, they are reminders that we ought not ignore.
When we throw a good shout out, it echoes back. Echoes are in multiplicity. … Read More See the Good, even in the Worst
Love is when the special someone told you that he loved your voice and felt happy just to listen to you. For some of you, you are married to this person who said those words to you, and years gone by, he/she still loves to hear you talk. When all the busy phases in life die down, there is just you and that someone, having all the time in the world to still continue a never-ending conversation.… Read More One Life. Live Passionately!
December is probably one of the weirdest months – Month of Dilemma. It is the month that I struggle to do everything; and do nothing. I am very objective driven; therefore, keeping a schedule is the key to keeping my crafting business afloat. I am never late. (The rare shipping delays are not… Read More Month of Dilemma – Do Everything; Do Nothing
Christmas, to me, signifies the beginning of the end; a new beginning when the end draws nigh. The religious background aside, Christmas is well celebrated in Singapore – a large city with rich and varied cultures, where racial and religious harmonies have been the highest priorities since her independence. When I was a child, I… Read More Christmas, the Beginning of the End
