How friendship breaks ...

Dear friend do u know???

Both F riends Will Think The Other Is Busy

And Will Not Contact
Thinking It May Be Disturbing

As Time Passes

Both Will Think Let The OTher Contact

After That each Will Think Why I Should Contact F irst ?

Here Your Love Will Be Converted To Hate

F inally Without Contact The Memory Becomes Weak

They F orget Each Other.

So Keep In Touch With All And Pass This TO All Your F riends...
I Don't Want To One Of This Kind.

So Here I Am sending Mail To Every One

To Say

I Am F ine Here

Please keep in touch with me

I received the above email from a very dear friend in Bahrain ( K.A.K ) whom I havent contacted for a while. I was so caught up with my life and had little time for other things, it is a lame excuse which embarresed me to even own up. The email did woke me up and served as a reminder of how important a friendship is. It teaches us not to procastinate for we will never know what happens tomorrow.
So my dear friends whom I havent been in touch for a while, if you read my blog please know that I do remember all of you. You are in my heart and in my thoughts always.

"Like the summers rain,
And pearl of morning dew ...
Never to be found again
Someone as dear as you ..."

Friday the 13th

I didnt realise that today is friday the 13th. Just a coincidence. Nothing much happenings here, just like any other day.

Yesterday was weird. Early in the morning we received a call informing us of a former neighbour had passed away in the hospital after a week in the ICU. And few minutes later we received another call, saying that a neighbour next door has given birth to a bouncing baby boy. So we had both sad and happy news in one day.
The former neighbour had a big history which we would rather forget. Anyway he was a changed man after he moved away, which was good for him and his family. May his soul rest in peace.

I am still trying to adjust to a new lifestyle in this neighbourhood. This evening a distant neighbour just walked right in when she found that our main door was opened. We were busy at the back and someone went out out without closing the door. I would not have gone into somebody's house if I cant find anybody at the door. There are a few nosey parker around here, looking for stuff to gossips about. The only plus point is that you get to hear a lot of stories and definitely a vice versa.

Neighbours ...

Auspicious date ... contd.

This is a continuation of my previous post ... talking about auspicious dates ...beautiful numbers ... one to be remembered.
A lot of people took the special date of 7th july 2007 to hold their wedding, one even go a step further by giving a dowry of 77,777.77
I thought it was a special date too, it really sound nice and 7 is my lucky number. Unfortunately I had no wedding to hold on such a special date..!
So the day with the special date went by just like any other day of the year.

Which reminded me of another special date way back in 1999. I was supposed to meet someone supposedly special for the first time. And it was disasterous. Not just one thing went wrong ... infact everything went wrong..!
I was hoping to relate the special meeting on such a nice date. But it was not meant to be.

I always have a soft spot for special dates or days ... that coincides with something nice. But in the end ... it was not the dates that matter. Any day
or date is as good as another. Each day is supposed to be taken as a Blessing.
Thankful that we are still alive to continue with our lives. Finishing of where we left off yesterday. Be glad that we are given another chance to repent or do more good deeds.

I guess I have mellowed since then. Sometimes I even forgot what day or date it was, waking up in the morning wondering what day it was. As long as there is a hot cup of tea waiting for me ... I am pleased.

Start living ...

Have we truly lived our lives to the fullest ?
Did we let our lives be on autopilot and going through the motions having each day the same as the one before it ?
Have we gone through another year without having done anything, achieving something or
Do we ever look back on our lives with regrets?

Try to start living your life to the fullest.

Take mini-retirements.
Don't leave the joy of retirement until you are too old to enjoy it. Do it now, while you're young. It makes working that much more worth it. Find ways to take a year off every few years. Save up, sell your home, your possessions, and travel. Live simply, but live, without having to work. Enjoy life, then go back to work and save up enough money to do it again in a couple of years.

It is like having a long vacation. It feels wonderful waking up in the morning and not having to go to the office and having to look at certain faces.
Having a cup of tea, reading newspapers and not having to worry about datelines, moving in and late nights built ups, and having to beg and please people. I feel free ...
