The Weight of Give and Take



Holla!

Cheers to Monday. Been thinking about give and take. What's the weight of giving or taking should a person carry.

My dad used to tell me that it's more blessed to give than be given. Of course I never see the sense of it. I've always been amazed how he did it. And even doing it. How can he give so much but been given so little. Or that's how I 'see' it. He explained that he was never after earthly desires. He is after something that lasts even longer than after life. Probably this is how he can be casually generous.

It's pretty hard to measure how much weight can a person give, nor take. Compromise, they say. Some people give most of their lifetime. But then, there are people who takes from others and takes only. So unfair yes. But it's been awhile the world had turned unfair, no? Taking is fun. Taking without terms and condition is even more fun.

Yet, from dad's perspective, giving is fun too. It's true.. But I probably would need loads of meditation to reach his level. Every time I'm giving a little, it feels like people is sucking a huge chunk out. It's pretty tiring. Dad never really gave me a Part II lesson on "Where to replenish the 'giving'" but I think I'll figure that out soon.

Perhaps, I've been taking too much. Complaining about being given too much. Pfft. Taking can be scary too. Scared of not holding it on strong enough that it slips out. 


If everybody wants to take more than they should, pity to those who had to do the other way round.



Just for fun (:



Live in the present, that gift is for the gifted
This what you came, this what you came for
You get what you buy, this what you paid for
So make sure the stars is what you aim for
Make mistakes though


I never worry, life is a journey
I just wanna enjoy the ride
What is the hurry? It's pretty early
It's ok, we'll take our time

Work Obsession, Good or Bad.




Holla!

Last day of July! Since I'll be busy for the whole August, might as well I spend a short while writing something. Heh. 

Being obsessed with work. Good or bad? I say, it all depends on how you look at it. 

It's good, when you know where you're going to with your work and you are working towards the result(s) your expecting when you first started. Because at the end of the day, you'll be the one to feel good about it. All the hard work you've poured in, will eventually paid off.

It's bad, when you're working in a demotivating environment. Probably places that you don't like that much, or with people/colleague you can't even have a simple conversation with. So, when you're obsessed with work at these kinda environment, you're literally forced to be obsessed with the workloads.

It's good, when you really really love what your doing, and at the same time you knew you're good at what you're doing. The latter reason would be a great bonus. A lot of people that I know doesn't realise what they really want to do with their lives. Hence I admire those who tells me they love their job and the effect they can emit with their work.

It's bad, when I see people are obsessed with their work just for the sack of a living. They just go with the flow, like ants. And they can get really absorbed in their work. These people will just get stuck in a spot forever.

I hope those who reads this will have a thought of it too. I know, you might be saying it's easy for me to say when I have thousands of mouths to feed at home. But...... think again. As late Steve Job once said

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it."


At the meantime, stay crazy!



My life, your life
Don't cross them lines
What you like, what I like
Why can't we both be right?
Attacking, defending
Until there's nothing left worth winning
Your pride and my pride
Don't waste my time

Distraction



Holla!

Saying "Hi" to you guys!

I've been having quite a lot of cakes lately. Been slacking. Been thinking. Been doing a lot of unproductive things. Been giving in to irresistible distractions. 

Looking for a solution and I hope I will solve this distraction as soon as I can.

No-Plan Plan



Holla!

Last weekend was great! Can't say perfect, but it was good enough for a short getaway. I haven't been travelling out this year. Going back to home town doesn't count of course. So, my friends and I booked our ticket to Langkawi awhile ago. I've never been to any beach trips in West Malaysia hence I think it's a good time to explore Langkawi.

Overall, it was an enjoyable one. It wasn't sunny throughout our stay (such a turn off) otherwise, everything was great. Langkawi isn't a huge place to explore. Would fit those who wants a no-plan kinda plan. 

Random walks, random restaurants to dine in, random conversations, basically everything was random for us. Didn't particularly plan for anything. I feel pretty fun that way. Probably just what we all needed from our working lives. Our days are literally planned - what to do, where do have dinner, who to meet tomorrow. 

I think city people should try out this kind of plan. It's less hectic than a planned trip and it's really fun!

Til then!

Catching Up





Holla!

Mid June and fasting month for the Muslims started. Something that I would like to get out of my chest - I'm feeling better. Seriously, better. I'm physically recharged and mentally relaxed. Feel like I'm becoming more of myself now.

When I was in a mess, I knew about it yet I chose to ignore it. Oh well.. I'm glad that everything is turning out good. For real this time. So, time to have some fun like I used to. (:

And oh oh! Have you guys seen my new hair colour?! Heh! It's fading do ombr├ę brown but I still love it. Giving it a rest now as I noticed lots of my bleached hair breaks pretty easy. So, what's the next colour? *yeay* :D

Be back soon!



If you're looking for love
Know that love don't live here anymore
He left with my heart
They both walked through that door without me
If you're trying to find pity well, you need to look somewhere else
'Cause I surely can't help you
I'm hurting myself
I've turned into someone else

I used to believe love conquered all
'Cause that's what I've seen in movies
Come to find out it's not like that at all
You see real life's much different

Enough is Never Enough



Holla!!

Today was super exhausting. Woke up at 7am and rushed to office as my customers were waiting. Cut story short, everything was settled and I finally crossed another errand from my check list. Then I realised there are a lot more that I have to learn. Much more unexpected questions, bigger problems to be solved.

What I thought was I would be familiarise with my work after 6 months (Cheh...confident) yet I was wrong. Which I wasn't supposed to be surprised about it. Hah. Like the old saying, "Learning is a life long process".

I get frustrated easily when I couldn't handle a situation/scenario well. Maybe it's just me but I need everything to be done according to plan. Including solving a problem with the best solution. And all these I have to spend a great deal of time thinking, evaluating, figuring out the ultimate solution.

Well, the good side is at least I'm making use of my brain. Or anything that's left inside. I just learnt a lot more this month. I wish I could write more, but too bad my head is spinning from lack of sleep. Boo.

Be back soon.

Reminded



Hola!

A real decent girl actually reminded me of my blog. Macam lah she got update pun (you know who you are LOL) But yeah, thanks for the reminder and here I am, writing again. Miss scribbling down stuffs and releasing my feelings here, with a nice few sips of Hot Chocolate.

My work has been consuming most of my time. Okay okay, same shit all the time but sometimes it's good. Especially the part where I can get distracted from having useless thoughts. It's already the end of May and I keep going, chasing for my goals. A little scary and challenging but in a good way :)

Change. I started to feel changes in my life. Like some sort of a preparation to place a commitment. It's like snakes shedding. Nervous but excited at the same time. It's about time for me to have this plan anyway. And that leads to my first tattoo soon! :D Can't wait for it to happen this year! *fingers crossed*

Other than that, I miss my family! And I miss getaways! I wonder where will I be travelling this year. Heh. Not sure if I will be at the same time. Will be back soon!


Hold on tight,
This ride is a wild one,
Make no mistake,
The day will come when you can't cover up what you've done,
Now don't lose your fight, kid,
It only takes a little push to pull on through,
With so much left to do;
You'll be missing out, and we'll be missing you.

Relieved with Closure



Holla!

April has been different. Due to some personal issues, I've been thinking a lot. About myself, my life, my family, my friends. I've learnt something new. Although I've had my closure, yet it kept me wondering about the new questions I've never thought I would have to think about.

To be honest, I love the life I'm living now. Never been better. I'm appreciating everyone and everything I have in hand. There's nothing I would change, for now. I've came across massive quotes and sayings about being strong and to go on with life. I love them all. Those powerful words moved me towards the person I am becoming.

And I really do believe in karma. I've seen it happened twice and recently witness another. God indeed is fair. I'm much better now. Grateful too. Well, I'll be busy with my work again. Will definitely write again when I have the time to. Miss me!

Books and Thoughts.




Holla!

One of my *ehem* resolution this year is actually to read more. Let's say a book per month. LOL. I know it sounds sad and lazy but I wouldn't set a high expectation due to my workloads. But this month was a time for me to chill and spend time for myself. So I did read some.

Coincidently most of my books are about the author's story with their canine companions. I love most of the stories, probably because they are all real life stories. Some made me teared a little. Heh. I wish I could write like them. Rich with expressions and funny sentences. 

Room by Emma Donoghoe was really nice. The way she slips into a little boy's mind and describe his daily routine was so fascinating. Everything in the room was named perfectly well and I love how the little boy was trying to get used to his surroundings. Great book.

Til then, stay put.

Odd Eats




Holla!

There are a lot of new restaurants booming here and there in KL and it's nice to see new food and desserts everywhere. Just to lay out a few of the places that I would back back again for certain food.


#1. Black Squid Ink Rice with Omelette (hope I got the name right) from Franco. But the best thing I love is their dessert. It's green tea something and needs at least 20 mins to prepare. Trust me, it's worth the time.

#2. SEED Cafe. I love the refreshing juice, Seed de Menthe! And I can't remember what's the name of the food =___=

#3. After Black. Cozy place to hangout. Maybe it's because I was sitting was back towards the end so I don't feel the noises that much. Hah. But the food and place were nice.


Be back soon! x

Post Laparotomy Days




Holla!

It's been three week since my surgery, coming four to be exact. I became bored at week three, and started going out for short walks or dinner after that. Now I have no problem going out shopping but still need to stop and rest whenever I can. Heh.

Sounds fun. Well it does, during the day. But at night it's not much better. It's either waking up a few times or not sleeping for few hours. I couldn't shut down at night, mentally while physically awake in the morning. Geez.

Today and yesterday was much better. Managed to sleep much better than before. Woke up at 5am today, but it's  still good. (:

Seriously I don't know how did I managed to get through the nights. With cautious turnings on the bed, waking up to pee, even trying to stand up after laying on the bed for quite a while. Each of my meals had been cut off to half the portion, limited clothes to wear due to the wound site (basically just three) walking like a turtle. Maybe my walks are comparable to a young turtle.

I just wish now that these days will soon disappear and I would resume my usual life again. Not that I'm not grateful I got rid of the pain, but.... I guess I just want more.

Beauty Issue #9 - D.U.P Wonder Eyelid Tape



Hola!!!

A friend gave me this Double Eyelid Tape she got from an online store. I've been using it and my verdict is: 4 stars. Great tape with a catch.

First and foremost, the adhesive is really strong. I tried using it for 8hours without worrying it will pop out of my eyelids. I've seen girls with the eyelid tape sticking out and it's "ewww". This is WOW.. A serious WOOOOOW. Very sticky even my eyelids gets oily after half the day wearing this on.

Then, I love the size and shape of it. Perfect fit for my eyelids. No shaping, no cutting, no further adjustments to the tape. Just remove it from the sheet and it's ready to stick. And I love the sharp tip ends. I tried eyelid tape with thick ends and it's pretty weird looking after it sticks to my eyelid. Maybe it's only me.

Last but not least, I love the eyelid "fork". I was looking for this up and down as the usual cheaper ones are not really the correct fork to use. This was the original fork that I think all girls should be using. The cheaper ones are very much smaller and it's not very convenient to stick the eyelid tape in a go. This bigger fork allows the two ends of the eyelid tape to touch the fork and adhere it straight at one shot to the designated position. Great must-have tool.

Beauty Issue #8 - Po Bling Pore Sonic Cleanser




Holla!

When my "small boss" went to taiwan, I told her I wanted this - Po Bling Pore Sonic Cleanser. I have been wanting to get one of my own but I'm so not familiar with taiwan products. And she does. I think I'm more familiar with Western products.

I've been using it for 2 weeks, I guess and it does has it's pros and cons, similar to those I've read online.

What I love about it is it cleans my white heads. Those you can feel on your nose using your fingers. I used to scratch them off a lot when I have the chance to. But it was always there. This cleanser actually acts as a scrub to my face. So I barely use scrub cleanser nowadays. Combining both will actually make my skin really dry.

After a few experiment, I personally think it's best for me to use this cleanser only twice per week (mostly Tuesday & Friday) to avoid my skin turning dry.

Also, it's using normal batteries but then really waterproof at the same time. So, no worries about damaging the batteries here.


What I dislike about it is the brushes. It's okay for now as it's still new. But after some time, before changing the head, I would always imagine all the bacteria living inside and underneath the brush.

Eww.


Other than that, everything seems fine for me. I wouldn't have high hope on removing my blackheads with this cleanser because I can clearly see and clarify that IT DOESN'T WORK on black heads. I have plenty of black heads and I know if a product works on them. And this Po Bling Pore Sonic Cleanser is not in my black-head-free list.

Yet for the price and it's function, I think I'll keep it until it's useless to me. :)
