I may have lost the band, which was an important part of me for 2 years plus, true that it was initially tough letting go, but hey, I’ve done it and am living very well.  Also, I believe that God knows this passion of mine. I may have been pretty roughed up emotionally during the [...]

Steel

When I said that ‘this heart will be encased in a cage of steel’ I realized that I had meant every single word. True that I find it hard to open myself to people now, especially the people in church whom I sense are trying to befriend me. It’s kinda sad in a way though… [...]

I’m pleased to discover that from the time I’ve started exercise ( all thanks to Ms. Moley Toh for inspiration   ), I’ve lost 4-5kg and have seen some small, but nevertheless obvious physical changes. For one, I am definitely less squishy and though I’ve been unsuccessful at completely obliterating that obstinate pouch of lard on my tummy, I have [...]

Sappy Fool

Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so simple a phrase like ‘maybe we should be just friends’ turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts.

The good news is that nobody got hurt, and we were able to retrieve all our belongings. The damage is most likely repairable as the engine was miraculously unscathed, apart from minor burns.  For that, I’m very grateful [...]

What if.

Change is the only constant. Over dinner, a friend and I were discussing about how ‘scintillating’ it was to judge who was friend-worthy and who you shouldn’t even bother spending a minute with. Cowardice, immaturity, self-centredness rank as core no-nos. Political incorrectness can be very liberating sometimes. I’ve been told that I am too politically [...]

Patience

When one faces resistance in transition, there are 2 options: a) You either go with the tide, and follow it along to wherever it brings you. Or, b) You resist and end up getting exhausted, frustrated and lost. I am the kind of person who dislikes uncertainty and ambiguity. But for now, I have to [...]

I have eaten at hawker centres, makeshift foodstalls in Malaysia, even dodgy-looking establishments with the resident cockroach and/or rat and I have never ever, came down with food poisoning (apart from the rotten prawn incident which was partly due to my own negligience in tasting). Since Friday, I have been treated to fever, bouts of [...]
