Do something about it

She's waited all that she can.
You're losing her,
That's if you haven't,
But do you even see it?

She can't wait forever,
Cos nothing is forever.
Once upon a time,
She thought she could.

She wants to be wooed and wowed,
To be swept off her size 7 feet.
She wants to be romanced,
and be reminded of the the good ol days.

It used to be clear as the sky,
when things were just black and white.
But with the raging storm
and the line now blurred,

Everything's a murky gray.

Everyday is getting harder,
Just waking up is a trouble.
Living from day to day,
Feels like an endless lay.

She wants to know,
when will her Prince Charming show.
Will he ever come,
if there's even one?

Happy 2010 - Part 4 -

Continuing from the previous week's Part 3 post on what guys would do....

Check out what one crazy fella did...

This is what one of them did.

Yup. Facing a pig as if... you get the picture. And if you don't, kudos and PLEASE retain your innocent mind!! You're one of the extinct breed now!! =p

The 2 monkeys - CM and PB

CAUGHT IN ACTION- Girl scoping.

People were taking picturs with all the 12 zodiacs.

People taking photography to the extreme.

Where to next... ??

We headed to the pond of liberation... to look at the turtles.

They don't look liberated at all. Not one bit!
In fact, they looked super oppressed.

And this concluded out Kek Lok Si Temple outing. I always was curious what there was to see hearing from people who've been there but there isn't much unless you go there to pray.

Ken Hirai Boku wa Kimi ni Koi wo suru

This song is introduced by a plurkpal.

I find the music beautifully arranged with simple piano playing accompanied by melodious string instruments lending the song a haunting sense.

The song, however is compounding my emotional state.

she needs someone

She tells you what you want to hear,
She always gives you what you want.
But when it really matters,
Do you give her, her heart's desire?

She's numb from all that she's feeling,
She's lost from all that she's thinking.
But the most important thing is,
Do you see her drowning?

She's changed her line of thoughts,
She's lost who she once was.
But what can you do to remedy it,
Do you even understand what's going on at all?

She's been there all those times,
She's given all she can.
But when she needs you to,
Do you give her back what she's lost?

She's not the world's perfect person,
She knows she has endless flaws.
But when it all comes surfacing out,
Do you smite her down or will you stand by her?

Ready to Fly - Amy Pearson

Verse 1

I open my eyes the world seems a different place,
The colours are brighter and the air is sweet to taste.
see it's like I woke up from a nightmare that tied me down,
I was smothered and trapped inside a sleep way underground

Pre 1
Its time I learned to fall,
To say the word goodbye.
To feel the sunlight on my face,
Maybe that means...

I'm ready to fly,
I wanna breathe in and breathe out and be who I am,
Let go of fear wanna feel alive.
I'm ready to fly,
The more that you hold me back you set me free,
You help my heart decide..
Maybe I'm, maybe I'm ready to fly.

Verse 2
Where is your faith, where is your love for me?
Why do you fight the things I imagine in my dreams?
See the poison is strong, an addiction is tough to break.
But love is the hardest thing I have ever had to shake.

Pre 2
Its time to break these chains,
To look you in the eye,
To tell you that its over now,
So Maybe that means...

I'm ready to fly,
I wanna breathe in and breathe out and be who I am,
Find More lyrics at
Let go of fear wanna feel alive.
I'm ready to fly,
The more that you hold me back you set me free,
You help my heart decide..
Oh Maybe I'm, maybe I'm ready to fly.

(Give me the strength to walk away)
(Give me the strength to stay the road ahead)
Even if it's a lonely place.
(Give me the hope to mend this heart)
(Give me the chance to see love smile, smile again)
To see love smile..

Pre 1
Its time I learned to fall,
To say the word goodbye.
To feel the sunlight on my face,
Maybe that means...Oh maybe that means

I'm ready to fly,
I wanna breathe in and breathe out and be who I am,
Let go of fear wanna feel alive.
I'm ready to fly,
The more that you hold me back you set me free,
You help my heart decide..
Oh maybe I'm, maybe I'm ready, oh maybe im ready, to fly.

The simplest things

With all the hustle and bustle and the complications in our lives today, we tend to take things and people forgranted. Either that or the fact that our schedules are so packed with work, gym and other distractions that we never seem to have the time to just sit back, reflect and chill.

For everything, there should be a timeout. And all of us definitely need a time out. A time out to appreciate the simplest things and the smallest things.

Such as what you may ask?

Well, perhaps words of encouragement from a fellow colleague or the nice driver that stopped or slowed down for you to switch to his or her lane. How about the lengchai (cantonese for cute guy) in office who helped to clear your laptop from all the unnecessary junk and the list goes on.

For me, today, I definitely appreciate the fact that I no longer am in audit. If I had never resigned and left last October, I would be crying through yet another peak period. Definitely sobbing my eyes and heart out, working til the rooster crows!

Was smsing with an ex-colleague who was on the same job with me last year auditing a client next to PJ Hilton. This year, she's back on that same job and STILL working til the whee hours of the morning. In fact, according to her, they've been working even later, thanks to the crazy manager. No disrespect meant but sometimes, upper management can get a little out of hand with their absurd requests.

If I had stayed on, I wouldn't have had the opportunity today to go for my walk/ mini jog. For a person who NEVER exercises (playing badminton doesn't count! =p), even a 5 minute jog is an accomplishment ok!

I had a good walk and occasional jog from my current housing area to my old housing area (I just moved to the next Taman). I prefer the park there. Just walking past houses, seeing how each house is renovated and maintained. I had a good walk/run in the park though it was a little bit dark and yet, I felt safe. Or maybe I just don't value my life that much. =p Probably another contributing factor to why I love to speed when I drive.

I jogged past the swing and decided to give it a go. Feel the immense weight lifted as I swing myself up into the air, reaching for the sky. The breeze brushes against my skin. I feel a rush everytime I pushed myself up higher.

And that's when it hit me, I am glad I left audit. Things are definitely better for me. I am happier or rather was happier. Question is, am I back to square one? If so, I had better to do something about it... and soon.

Happy 2010 - Part 3 -

As previously blogged in PART 1 and PART 2 of my road trip, on our final day in Penang, we made our way once more across the Penang Bridge and headed towards Kek Lok Si Temple.

CM brought us to this famous Asam Laksa shop right before the Kek Lok Si Temple. And boy it really is famous as one had to queue for a place to sit! We had to share table with other strangers.

Fret not... the shop is more than prepared to cater for the long queue. For a moment, I thought that their asam laksa pot was magical as it was always full. But of course, nothing is magical in this realistic world. Sure enough, we saw them replenishing the soup by pouring more from another pot awhile later.

Slurpilicious asam laksa! At least, I had my fix for the trip.

One bowl was NOT enough for the guys and they had second helpings!
The annoying thing is... both of them aren't tubby at all! Grrr....

After our meal, we made it to Kek Lok Si Temple. Despite going to Penang on many occasions, I've never been to the temple. Wonder if it's due to my family's supposed Christian background.

It was a well maintained, spacious, HUGE temple.

This is one crazy expensive statue... RM25,000!!!
AND it's only half of my size!

Us, in the vernacular train up... think it costs RM4 per adult for return ticket.
Goddess of Mercy.

Guys will ALWAYS be GUYS. Both of them were fascinated with the bench that had pigs on both ends.

Guess what did one of them do....???? Read it in the next post on this trip.
