the E in my life

i will always remember that first moment,
when i first held him and looked at him in the eyes.
he peeping through his one open eye,
the first look at the world,
the first look at me.

after spending the last 9 months together,
growing from that one sac to a 3.8kg being.
hearing my voice as i read nursery rhymes,
hearing the classic music that i played,
feeling the lightness around when i swam,
doing things expounded in books.

but i am sure you too,
hear the sobs in the night,
felt my heartbreak,
sensed my sadness.
but only for a sweeping moment.

for mummy wowed to be strong,
as like your name, Ethan.
that I can have the strength and courage,
to bring you into this world alone.

and my decision paid off handsomely,
for i am awarded with the gift of life.
how each day there are new discoveries awaiting.

taking the off the beaten path

it's gone
long gone
the love i thought i found
the love i gave with faith
the love that turned out to be as transient as the wind
it's found and lost
but all is not lost
rather, i gain
probably more than what i deserve
for it is a life
growing in me now

you find something precious among the broken pieces
that the aftermath of the ruins
is the polar opposite
that it is destined to be the guiding light
the rainbow after the rain
it's a rare gift

life works this way
you get thrown off your path
but life is not going to leave you eating your own dust
you pick yourself up and see something that you have not
and will not if you didn't ended up where you were
like it or not
that there's something out on the horizon
you don't know what to expect
it's blurry and different
you have never seen it or even imagined it
but it is beckoning you
that's your direction
you move forward
not looking back
leaving the beaten path that you thought you will take
that you thought that it is going to bring you to your destination
but there is no best destination
you make your best journey

you have no idea what lies ahead
for it is not the path that you have seen others took
dangers may lurk
but so will beauty be hidden
you won't know until you take the first step
and with that first step
you start your journey
the journey that you are meant to take
everyone has different paths
some harder some easier
but at every juncture every moment
you still have a choice
for you can choose to turn back
to trace and seek what you thought that you have lost
or you can head forward to explore what else is out there
you never know what you will find
but you will always know that you made the choice to find out

i don't want to look far
for i will see the distance
for i will see the blurry destination
for i will wonder is it really there
for i will wonder is it really worth it
for i will wonder if this is the path i should take

i just want to enjoy what i have around me
while i walk this path
to where to what i don't know
but i just need to know that everything i see on the path
are guiding me to where i should head
i don't have to see the destination to have faith in moving on
the simple joy you find along the way
are there to remind you of your detachment
the obstacles you find along the way
are there to remind you of your resolve
that everything in life has a purpose

so i have picked myself up
swept the broken pieces
left the pile behind
left the planned out path
and walk the off the beaten path
growing with each step
me and the one in me

"one day" procrastination

i always seem to have a dozen things in the backburner which i hope that i will get to "one day" but just wasn't quite ready to when the "one day" comes.

like how i said...

one day i will tidy up my room
one day i will wash that pile of clothes
one day i will do another necklace for myself
one day i will send those clothes for altering
one day i will kickstart my marketing plan
one day i will learn how to cook
one day i will work on my resume
one day i will save enough money
one day i will give a fantastic speech
one day i will write a novel
one day i will own a car
one day i will run my own successful business

they range from the trivial to life-changing. things that i should have done or aim to do. but it always seems like i do not have time or motivation or confidence to do them. how many of us are stuck with that dilemma. that you want to do something but you are held back by a lot of factors, or rather excuses. and you beat yourself up for letting yourself be the very reason that you can't move forward.

i want to break that mystery and be a "today" person. today i shall do this. tick.

is this it?
that this is love
the elusive state of being?
when you think about him
you think about the future with him in it
you think about what is he thinking
you think about whether his future includes you
you think about just him

it was unintentional
a last minute surprise at the end of the year
he's different
that's what i said to others
i wonder if it means that
he's more driven
he's more mature
he's more expressive
he's more .... more
or it simply means that
i am in love with this guy
first time in my life

yes i loved guys before
they loved me
but it doesn't justify me
being in love
i loved them back
but i know this love is
initiated out of obligation
the result of reciprocation

i loved them
they mean something in my life
but something's missing
that i have my mind to give out my heart
but my heart is not out there with them

that's the thing
am i putting my heart out this time?
full out and proud
that i'm subjected myself
to the risk of getting hurt?

but he did reassure me
that he will take good care of me
that he will love only me
but i too know that talk is cheap

i trust him fully
but yet i worry still
he is a guy who has seen it all
all kinds
he sampled the whole store of sweets
he knows what he likes and what he doesn't
and he chose me

why? for i'm sure he knows exactly what he wants
i am sure he knows what is perfect for him
i'm not perfect for sure
but he did say
that you don't go finding that perfect someone
you perfect yourself for that someone
so is he trying to adjust his taste?
so he can grow to love me?

i'm me.
i'm like that.
can't i just be simple?
can't i just be happy?
can't i just let him love me?
can't i just love him?

it should be simple as that.
he loves me
i loves him
we make through life together
through thick and thin
simply because we want to make it work together
simply because this is called love

yes the thing called love

herald in the happiness

it's the time of the year. the start of a bright new year, 2008. which deep down i am confident that this is going to be a great year for me. the past year has been full of ups and downs. but the end is sweet. surprisingly sweet. so here's the look back at the year:

i learnt that

forbidden act gives you momentary delirium but eats your conscience out
earning more doesn't mean you have more money
you can convert your nemesis through sincerity
you can make things happen by the power of thoughts
you have to move on to bigger things and not look back

and more importantly

i learnt that i can fall in love

so this year,

i resolve to

learn to cook
take up golf
master roller-blading
save $500 a month
change a new job by mid-year
increase my salary to $4,000
ostake 5 people
be faithful
love the only one man in my life
speak up more
improve my communication skills
read more
smile more
help more

2008 will be much more. it'll be great. i know it.

what good?

you came back into my life
again, uninvited.
but it's a warm welcome
that i'm reminded of
the good
the bliss
but the guilt too

that what good does it do
when i can't do what i didn't in the past
that it's still the same
a new life for you
so you think it's fitting
that i complete that dream

i am standing on the edge
looking on both sides
wavered, afraid, tired
for it's a much easier route
to have someone doing the work
making love work
that i am assured of where i stand
always the dream

but what about my dream
should i forget about mine
as i be yours
it is easier to be your dream
then to pursue mine

what good
will i be happy
or will i think that i'm happy

green tendencies

"just like that?"

"yeah. just like that."

i can't help but feel a little angry.

not at a friend who told me she found a job at first attempt while the scene when i tender my resignation letter has been playing in my mind for way too long.

but at myself.

yes for a moment i was thinking "why?" am i not good enough for the world? but then i told myself. i haven't been trying hard enough. you have only yourself to blame. and it's more than yourself. luck. opportunity. timing. people. everything counts.

jealousy is angry, envy is wistful.

[ an event that might have been arranged although it was really accidental ]

is it better to know what's to happen or not to know?

i have an obession with filling in my calendar. that i find joy in knowing what i will be doing for the week. getting my book at borders. dinner at my favourite japanese restaurant. chilling out with friends. reading my book. taking a dip in the pool. i like to know. i like to have my life happenings accessible anytime. review the past and plan the future. i'm weird. or am i?

but when it comes down to do you want to know when you will get married. which year will be your unlucky year. how many loves you will have in this life. i'll say there's bliss in ignorance. what's the point of living life when you know what will happen in the far future? where's the excitement? anticipation? even disappointment?

i'm a dogmatic organiser but i'm an zealous adventurer too.

i like to know what i'm doing and i like not knowing what it will entail.

that's the beauty of life.

i believe in fate. i have a destiny. but i'll rather find it out myself then to be told what it is.

i also believe that you make your own destiny.

you are born with a destiny. but you can change it.

hello, stranger

it's has a long while. i'm clearing the cobwebs once again. thanks for the push from some of you guys out there. it's nice to hear from strangers from the other end of the world.

it's a brand new year, i'm not going to dissimulate my optimism (ever so rare for me) 'coz i believe it will be a great year. all i want for is for life to be simple, for me to be happy.

the lack of converse lately has been due to the fact that things are a ok.
like a sea of calm, nothing much to ventilate about, just taking in the serenity.

but no nothing much has changed in my life, just my attitude in life.

that i tell myself that i ask not for a smooth trouble-free easy life, but for the strength and wisdom to deal with whatever challenges and hardship i may have ahead.

yap, still writing my life book, but with a fresh new style.

music to your soul

sometimes you find the words that you need when you least expected. when you are on the bus listening to the morning radio, thinking about how the day will be. will it be like yesterday? like the day before? like the day when i find myself suffocated by my tendrils of despair?

then i hear this...

go ahead as you waste your days with thinking
when you fall everyone stands
another day and you've had your fill of sinking
with the life held in your
hands are shaking cold
these hands are meant to hold

speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
move along, move along like I know you do
and even when your hope is gone
move along, move along just to make it through
move along
move along

so a day when you've lost yourself completely
could be a night when your life ends
such a heart that will lead you to deceiving
all the pain held in your
hands are shaking cold
your hands are mine to hold

speak to me, when all you got to keep is strong
move along, move along like I know you do
and even when your hope is gone
move along, move along just to make it through
move along

when everything is wrong, we move along
Along, along, along

when all you got to keep is strong
move along, move along like I know you do
and even when your hope is gone
move along, move along just to make it through

right back what is wrong
we move along

~ Move Along by All-American Rejects

it takes a night to make it dawn
and it takes a day to make you yawn brother
and it takes some old to make you young
it takes some cold to know the sun
it takes the one to have the other
and it takes no time to fall in love
but it takes you years to know what love is
and it takes some fears to make you trust
it takes those tears to make it rust
it takes the dust to have it polished
it takes some silence to make sound
and it takes a loss before you found it
and it takes a road to go nowhere
it takes a toll to make you care
it takes a hole to make a mountain
........ life is wonderful
........ life goes full circle

~ Life is Wonderful by Jason Mraz

my day is better already. you just got to learn how to move along even when eveything is wrong. it takes some cold to know the sun. life may not and will not be always bright and sunny, but i have to hold on hope that life is going to be wonderful again.

advice in life comes from the most unassuming ways.

Fear not yourself

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?"

~ Quoted from Marianne Williamson in Return to Love: Reflections on a Course in Miracles

This quote I heard in the movie Akeela and the Bee came at a time when I am starting to doubt myself. When my once dogged sanguinity are ossifying into reflexive bitterness, when I find myself frustrated for being stuck in a rut that I have landed myself in. And thoughts are powerful things. I am now witnessing how it is manifesting in my life. I convinced myself that i'm less now. less capable. less confident. less kind. less happy. But I realised nothing much has changed since the time when I think that I can do anything that I put my mind to. All that has changed is my state of mind. By thinking that I can't. I plainly and evitably can't.

May I remind myself....

"If you think you are beaten, you are.
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you like to win, but you think you can't,
It is almost certain you won't.

If you think you'll lose, you're lost.
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will -
It's all in the state of mind.

If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.

Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can!"

~ Quoted from Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill

It is really up to me to tell myself,
who am I not to be?

life after

life now takes a little getting used to for me. same for my family. when they are surprised to see me snuggled up in my bed reading so early these days. when i told them that i'm going to bring them out to check out this fanatastic restaurant. as do for my friends. when they now have no qualms about asking me out on a saturday. when they ask me out for movies. yes they all know that i'm no longer exclusive.

life after is all about exploring yourself, not to the extent of narcissism. it's being understanding what it means being me. when i take joy in little things. when i explore routes i don't usually take. when i step out of my comfort zone and do something i don't normally do. meeting people whom i will not have talked to otherwise.

but of coz, i too hope for the day when i meet someone who can make me breakfast while i sleep in. when i can put into use the tips from animal training. i don't fall and decide that walking is not for me. i don't just intend to walk this path, but to run and take in the scenery.

how life after is, is really up to me.

alone now

been hoping that i have the courage
to do what is needed
but when courage is given
i need the courage to move away from the carnage

only when you are gone
i realised how much space you occupy in my life
and i know the space i occupy in your life
far exceeds this
you said you can give me your life
you already did
when you made your life around me

it's a long painful path that has to end with pain
it's only to hope that a different path ensues
and it will only be better
coz i hope to believe that life save the best for last
that all these are preparations for the end
the pain you endure along the journey
so you will know that the end
is sweet

that it is all worth it
that this is your reward for all that you have been through
and did i tell you that the reward need not be shared
you can be alone and happy
or rather i tried to convince you

for alone is a scary word now
lonely is a worse evil still
but really, unhappiness wins the game
letting go is not losing
it means making space for happiness

you're not alone

"when you're alone, you can make any choice you want.
but when someone loves you, you lose that right."

i used to be this free spirit who fights for independence and freedom. my own, that is. under my my quiet demeanor is a girl who wants to experience the world. i want to explore the abysmal mystery of life. i make my own choices. i want what i want.

i still want all that. but when your life involves not just yourself, things change.

it shouldn't. but it did for me.

when i become the sustenance of happiness for someone else.

that's the difference between being loved and being in love.

love shouldn't pull you back.
neither should love gives you the illusion that things are great just the way it is now.

love should give you new reasons to move forth with that extra skip in your step.
coz you know someone is there to walk the unexplored with you.
coz you know you want to share the experience with your someone.
coz you want to be better for your someone.

so when you find yourself losing that right,
it just means you made the wrong choice.

flawed perfection

as much as i profess myself to be a perfectionist, i never liked perfect endings or perfect characters on screen. i hate predictability. well yeah, majority of viewers absolutely dig happy endings where the main characters finally get together. people find love. start a family. killers are caught or even dead. but i'll like to see a little reality in shows. to show that it's life they're depicting. life is afterall, not perfection. flaws are a constant reminder that perfection is still a constant pursuit.

but i like that. without flaws, life will be a bore. coz if things are really perfect, where do you go from there?

getting away from it

a holiday is not a form of escapism. it is a form of restorative check one has to take. everyone will have at least lament "i need a break!" once. i did. i want to have a short getaway where i can find soft sugary sand between my toes, get a whiff of heady sea air, be under the azure sky with a glimmering span of water in front of me.

when all you need is a good book, shades, tanning oil and a happy spirit.
when you no longer think of making the most of your time, time is no longer ticking.
when you can throw away your reservations and do something random.
when responsibility, deadlines, budgets, problems are swept underneath.
when your mind can be empty, ready to soak in all the experiences.
when i am getting the right to just do nothing, so at the end of the day i do not beat myself for wasting the day, rather i'll be bleaming and thinking "life is good"

but it is a form of illusion. i'll like to say that i come back refreshed. but after that anticipated initial glow, the dreaded post-holiday syndrome sets in. and i will again by drawn by to the routines of reality. sign.

you see you can never escape the fact that you're still holding that job, with its responsibilities, still in that relationship, with its problems. but at least you had the chance to clear your mind and soul, ready to face the realities in life.

it's a marathon you have to run, you'll run it better when you know how to pace it.

sometimes a good old cry is needed

just like the weather, where unbearable humidity signals an approaching shower, where rain is uneluctable. the air overbearing with water vapour that needs release.

it can bring an episode of light dizzle. harmless and almost unnoticable. or a roaring thunderstorm that threatens to hurt anything that comes in its way.

but there's one thing for sure. the fresh dewy air left behind by the rain. that all is clear. the sun is soon out. if you're lucky you might even catch a rainbow. you know it's always better after the rain.

it makes my world blurry
but i know it helps to wash away
the unwanted, remains of the day
you know that what ensues after the momentary sense of disorientation
is clarity and a renewed sense of settledness

so it's ok to let out a good old cry....

times when money does make my world goes round...

it aren't funny when i have to check my bank account before deciding whether to buy a pair of shoes. geesh, does that make me poor? *gasp* i've always lived it good. not particularly rich. i know the pains of money but i'm in no lack of it. until i started working. what an irony. stepping out to work. isn't that the milestone to becoming financially independent woman? when i spend my own money, when my parents are not given the right to nag. when i can finally afford to buy the things i want. clearly not in my case.

the world out there is nothing like the world that i construe. my ideals are way off mark.

i thought...
that i'll be happy as long as i can find a job that i am passionate about. doing what i like and do best. simple. money? nah it doesn't matter. what kind of life is that to work your ass off to earn that kind of money? the money you get from doing something u don't enjoy is akin to ill-earned money. my view then.

i realised that i will be happier if i earn more from than enjoy more of my job. having more clothes is better than getting more praise. yes i can enjoy my work tremedously but the high doesn't quite last when you realise that food can only comes from non-conditioned place or at places where you bring your food to your own table. not that i'm arguing for the lasting effects of retail therapy, it's more than that. it's about living a life at your level of comfort. it could mean going on a short trip to unwind instead of trying to image i'm somewhere. it could mean buying books that i will want to keep instead of trying to etch the quotables into my memory. and of course, if a car comes along, i'll be working my ass off too.

money. it used to be a dirty word in my dictionary. but now, i've come to accept it among the ranks of love, passion and freedom.

yes, money doesn't rule my world. but it changes my world.

valentine day: no arrows my way

i said "let's not do the commercial thing of celebrating valentine with dinner and flowers which share the same sin of being over-priced. a simple dinner at home will do"


i do not think carrying a big bouquent of roses and walking the streets romantic. yes i'm not that floral proud. and i certainly think that spending the night with many other couples eating the same mass produced food is not romantic. ok, if you want to, i'm fine, only if you can afford that extravagance. and you can't now.

so it's just a home-cooked dinner at home, courtesy of me. just chilling at home with wine and enjoying each other's company. or so i thought. it helps if you can stop telling me what to do in the kitchen. fyi, i'm in charge that night. so now the dinner is screwed. we sat there in silence looking at the chicken spin in the microwave. it helps if you can at least do something to indicate it's valentine's day. a surprise peck or hug. doing something different. well, what i said "everyday can be valentine's day" i do veer towards meaning that everyday can be as romantic as valentine's day. apparently you see it that to mean valentine's day can be like everyday.

it's ok. still love you.

keys to his heart

i was given the keys to his apartment. a little gesture but it meant so much.

it is the key to the next level of our relationship.
i held on the keys slightly bemused.
i stepped into the house feeling different.
like i have a part in it.
though all that changes is that i do not ever need to ring the doorbell.

i'm excited at my status as a co-keyholder.
nothing as big as getting married or getting a place of my/our own.
the keys do not just give me a sense of ownership to his place.
they give me ownership to his heart and soul.
they give me access into his world.

the feeling is reminiscent of
me getting my driving license
me getting my first salary
me getting my first splurge on my own
me getting my first kiss
me getting my first ***

things that make me feel that i've moved on further in life.

a wild wild world

there is no one place or state to be that is unencumbered by the tentacles of politics. the power struggle, back-stabbing, fakery. exactly the things that i want to steer clear of. not because i believe that i do not want to be tainted, but rather, i am afraid that i will be afflicted by the intricacy of work life. i will be squashed, stepped, torn, chopped, liquidified whatever.

but now, i want to be abused, belittled, bitched on. of coz, these have to come along with the perks of work. i want an environment where i am challenged. i'll rather be fighting a battle than be fighting boredom. you know how much effortful it is to appear busy than to be busy? i want to be able to look back 10 years from now, giving myself a pat, for being a survivor amidst inhumanity, yet still retaining my soul; for being an influence above many brillant minds, yet not losing my head from being high up there. i said i didnt want to climb the corporate ladder. still holds. but i do want to climb the ladder of success. social and personal ladder.

never one who sets goals or have ambitions. all i have is tomorrow and dreams. i live for today and tomorrow. but i've changed. i care about what will happen after tomorrow. time to me isn't precious when i'm young and studying. i waste time like how paris hilton waste money. i slack the way she parties. but she had her time of in-abundance. like how i had mine. when i can't spend money like i used to. when i no longer have my naps. when i can't walk the mall when others slougde away. for the first time, i felt the pinch. i felt the need to set some budget. need to save. i'm starting to feel the empowerful of having something in the bank. yeah, late bloomer.

yeah i'm a different person. for the better i hope.
i aim to be the best that i can.

somebody i can't be

I want somebody to share
Share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts
Know my intimate details
Someone who’ll stand by my side
And give me support
And in return
She’ll get my support
She will listen to me
When I want to speak
About the world we live in
And life in general
Though my views may be wrong
They may even be perverted
She’ll hear me out
And won’t easily be converted
To my way of thinking
In fact she’ll often disagree
But at the end of it all
She will understand me
I want somebody who cares
For me passionately
With every thought and
With every breath
Someone who’ll help me see things
In a different light
All the things I detest
I will almost like
I don’t want to be tied
To anyone’s strings
I’m carefully trying to steer clear of
Those things
But when I’m asleep
I want somebody
Who will put their arms around me
And kiss me tenderly
Though things like this
Make me sick
In a case like this
I’ll get away with it

Somebody by Depeche Mode

it hurts to know that i cant be your somebody
that i know one day i will leave you
and be someone else's somebody

it hurts to know how much you have fell for me
for it shows the capacity of the hurt i can inflict on you

my tears now is for the hurt i know i will give you
an inevitable end despite me trying

right now i can't pretend
i'm not a pretender, i'm a idealist
but my bubble has been burst

i know we are living on dangerous ground
me providing more only to know that it will end

i know i will never forgive myself
i know i will never forget you
but i know the day i hurt you
you will never forgive me
you will make youself forget me

i never want to lose you forever
but i know you can never hold me forever

pain resides

pain comes in many different variations
the pain of operation and wounds
the pain of canes and injections
the pain of lost and dejection
i can withstand

true pain comes to me when
i find myself not able to answer you when you asked
for my instinct on our relationship
whether we will be married with kids
i can't
coz I know you will not want to hear it
coz I know that you too know where it will be headed
coz I know you are afraid too
coz I know you just want the assurance from me
coz I know that you know the pain already
coz I know that you do not want history to repeat itself

true pain comes to me when
i find myself caught between what I want and what I can do
i know what I want but I know I can't
i can't choose to be with the man I want
coz I have a man crazy in love with me
coz you want a woman crazy about God like you
coz I have sinned and still sinning
coz you need a pure woman within
coz I am everything that you will not want
coz you are everything that isn't me

true pain comes to me when
i find myself knowing what I should do but can't do
i know that I am wrong
we are wrong together
but I try so hard to make it right
coz your life evolves around me
coz you changed yourself for me
coz you never make me feel less
coz you love me with a capacity I'm incapable of

true pain comes to me when
i find myself liking what I should not and disliking what I should
i always find ways to rebel
but it is really taking its toil on me
coz I spend my time being a taker not a giver
coz taking takes more out of me than giving
coz making love makes less sense than sex
coz my heart doesn't flutter
coz my desires isn't aroused
coz my enjoyment is forbidden
coz my happiness is followed by guilt
coz I know I will never get that happiness
coz I know that soon it will be all over, for both
coz I know ultimately I will be the biggest loser

things are as good as i think them to be

life's good to me
nothing much has changed
if they have
i'll like to believe that
they're for the better
