New Year's Eve

Well..we'll soon be saying our goodbyes to 2010. Lots of things havent been accomplished although I wanted to very much. Just didnt have the energy and guts. What a lame excuse.
No use crying over spilled milk. Should have been more careful or rather should have drank the whole bottle of milk so that it didnt get spilled !

December 25th 2010,

Today, after so many years I let myself feel the mood of Christmas again. It is so nostalgic, listening to those Christmas songs. Memories keep flowing back, as if they were all 'yesterdays'.
Shopping and the Orchard Road's light up, Christmas with friends, Christmas gifts, Christmas deco ...Christmas holidays are the best time of the year. Or at least it used to be. Once upon a time.

But all that has changed. Time has passed. I am now at a different time zone, different wave. All I have is a memory of those wonderful time.
Something ... Someone ... So Near yet So far Away !

Friday, September 10, 2010


AidilFitri this year falls on a friday, thus it is a bit more special. Although the weather has not been too kind since the morning. It drizzled for a bit a continued to be gloomy. The sun refused to shine. Which reminded me again of Eids celebrated in the winter months. Back then Eid was not as merry and joyous as we were away from our family and the culture was different. We got to taste the ketupat at the embassy open house, meeting fellow countrymen and catching up for a bit and trying to have some small talks just to be nice to people. If you know what I mean, how some of the Malaysians when they are residing overseas. After the meals we would end up having coffee at starbucks and shopping at Seef Mall or take a walk along the corniche.
Now that I am home, I missed those days as much as I missed celebrating Eid in Malaysia.

This year, the second year of celebrating Eid without my mother. The Ramadhan which is supposed to be a Blessed and special month, came and went, with a mixed feeling of loss, regrets and relief. Too much work around the house with too little help is a huge burden. Sacrifice is the word. Life is not easy. To balance things while keeping sane. Hope to get all my energy back and soon to continue with my daily routine.

EID MUBARAK to everyone. May we live to see the next Ramadhan. Good health, plenty of happiness and wealth for each day to come. Maaf zahir batin.

An old friend ?

It all started when I asked my sister about an old radio which should have been a piece of antique by now; I have forgotten that it has been taken by this individual. That seems to be a very long time ago.
So, out of curiousity, I tried to search online, typed his name and voila...his name came about...but through his daughter's blog !
In one of the entry is about her early days, the story about her parents and how she came about on this earth. She put up some pictures and after cringing my eyes at the low res pics it was confirmed that he is the right person. I could still recall his face. And the early pic of her parents while they were still dating, he was wearing a white short, which sort of was his somewhat uniform, working as an assistant manager at one of plantation estate. GUTHRIE !
Ah..memories came flooding back. Reading and looking at the pictures, plenty of water has gone under the bridge for him as well. He got married to "that girl" had three kids and got divorced.If my rough calculation is correct they must have been married for at least 14 years. Both went on their own path and few years later he remarried.
Now they are in Taiping.
From her perspective, her father is "everything" and she loves him very much, what she wrote must have been stories as told by her father and mother of how they met, fall in love and raised their family.
Quietly I told myself.... Girl..there are plenty of things that you do not know about your father and mother. The UNTOLD stories. I wonder what was/were the reasons of their divorce !
I had a strong inclination to put up a comment on her blog, but on second thought I decided it is better to let it go. Let it rest and sleep in peace.

What a small world.

I wanna be free

Like life in a bottle
I wanna be free
To fly away
For pure fresh air
To feel the rain on my feathers
To a faraway land

And perhaps to circle that rainbow again ...!

Valentine's this year

Its that time of the year again, which everyone talks about love. It is just another occassion that has been so commercialised. But it is nice too to see all the decorations, the flowers, the toys, chocolates and gifts for the loved ones. Memories... Memories !
They are all safely and quietly tucked in my Ferragamo shoe box. Currently residing under my bed.
