Revival.

You've got a lot of choices. If getting out of bed in the morning is a chore and you're not smiling on a regular basis, try another choice. ~Steven D. Woodhull



Greetings to all.

I am officially reviving my blog as I couldn't find the courage to shut it down. I normally get what I want when I set my mind to it... so, I am thinking with that sort of mindset, I should be able to shut down my blog if I don't want to write anymore. However, I suppose deep down inside, I still do love writing. Forget the fact that my blog readership is probably currently at level zero due to the fact that I have not updated it in the longest time; but yet, it's alright. I think, I still want to run it despite the low readership and knowing that possibly... I'm the only one reading my own writing and perhaps, maybe Zulie, Jua & Hilyah once I force them to read the fact that I have in fact revived my blog. hahahaha.

If you must know, I am currently in the best of moods as I feel content, happy and at peace with myself. You're thinking I sound like a hippy? Well, even I think I sound hippy-ish. hahahaa. But truly, I am pretty grateful for the life that I am currently living. :) It's been such a good change since the last time I dropped a note on this blog. I now wake up smiling as I should and I think I've done so many things in the last couple of months that I have really really had a blast! Several things that I have done this few months include the following:

1. Travelling around Australia. Managed to hit Adelaide, Gold Coast and Perth. Sorry Fara, will have to drop by Canberra sometime soon. Oh my sister Fara is now studying in Canberra.

2. Saw a real life Giant Panda in the Adelaide Zoo. Everyone of you out there, seriously need to see the majestic creatures for yourself as they are wayyyy better than the ones you see in pictures or even movies.

3. Went Batik making & painting which was an awesomeeee fun.

4. Visited the newly renovated Malaysian Bird Park and had birds sitting on my shoulders! How cool is that right?

5. Tutoring students in a Kumon Centre which is a very fulfilling part time activity for me as I do feel that I am helping the children little by little.

6. Ate chocolate Pizza in this little italian place in Adelaide. delicious.

7. And oh how can I forget, I've discovered a new interest and passion for sewing and designing my own clothes. I mean, since I was a little girl, I always loved to draw princesses and different sort of outfits for them but I never thought I'd actually sew, really. However, I am now teaching myself how to sew and I'm not gonna say that I'm great at it but, I'm getting better with each piece of project that I make. And am even thinking of getting my own sewing machine as Khidmah, Hilyah's sister had only loaned me her sewing machine and would be needing it back. I just can't express how excited and happy I get whenever I work on a new outfit. Gives me true joy. :) And nooooo, it's not a grandma-like hobby! hahaha.


Anyhow, I am thinking of changing the blog layout. But have yet to decide. Any thoughts?

Oh well, goodnight world.

Of life a year on


If it's not challenging than maybe it's not worth doing, right? ~a friend

Hey world.

I know that it's been a while since I last wrote - More than a year in fact. I've just been caught up with work, friends, family, self and trying to find a balance in my life which I must say can get really challenging physically, mentally and emotionally.

They say we learn something new, each and every day. So as you can imagine, I have learned quite a sum within the last one year. Most of which I am finding difficulty in articulating into words. Some of which I am glad to have figured out and some of which... I am quite frightened/ scared/ concerned/ worried to have come to understand. Yea, quite a mouthful of feelings clearly.

I believe that it's not as easy as it sounds, to learn more and more about yourself, about what you've become and about what you have yet to accomplish. Growing up, is challenging. Life, is challenging. All we can do is to... to try our best I think. To try and cope as best as we know how. To come out of it stronger and most of all, happier.

I'm still trying to figure out what to do next, but as of now, I am content. :)

Dream by Patricia Ahn

I was a little girl alone
in my little world
who dreamed of a little home for me.
I played pretend between the trees,
and fed my houseguests bark and leaves,
and laughed in my pretty bed of green.

I had a dream
That I could fly from the highest swing,
I had a dream.

Long walks in the dark
through woods grown behind the park,
I asked God who I'm supposed to be.
The stars smiled down on me,
God answered in silent reverie,
I said a prayer and fell asleep.

I had a dream
That I could fly from the highest tree,
I had a dream.

Now I'm old and feeling grey,
I don't know what's left to say
about this life I'm willing to leave.
I lived it full and I lived it well,
there's many tales I've lived to tell,
I'm ready now, I'm ready now,
I'm ready now to fly from the highest wing.

I had a dream...

New York skyline by Michelle Villamin


I love this picture. Michelle took this picture from her sister's place when she went to visit her sister there recently. It's amazing how you can see the striking contrast between New York city and New York suburb. Beautiful. :)

Long awaited win


After a hard year this year with no wins, Fernando Alonso won the first ever Formula 1 night race - his first win this season! woohoo!! I am soooo happy. ahahah. I have always cheered for Alonso and I'm just so glad that he is still awesome. No doubt, he will not win the championship this season because he doesn't really have the most competitive car, but it was good to see him smile after that long awaited win. He did so well over the weekend for qualifying before the really unlucky engine meltdown. Then again, he was really good during the race and he pulled through. =)

Aahhh... till next time! Goodayy and goodnight! hohohoho! =)
