My reflection

Hey guys, just want to share this news article from Brunei Times, honestly cos I saw myself in it!

Let me just point out that there were over 200 recipients so my face in this news doesn't really mean anything. But I like how they use the term 'children', really makes me feel young. Although in reality, I'm probably the oldest recipients that night :S

Work so far has been good. My only complaint would be the night is too short and the day too long. But at this point in life, I don't feel the need to say much. I like to keep life as simple as they are meant to be. No point making it complicated than they already are.




Time To Read

Hello reader.

I wish I can say I've been procrastinating a lot lately, an activity I used to enjoy doing. I'm now at the stage of my life where I simply do not have time to waste. Don't get me wrong, this is good. I like to keep myself occupied, always. But I do miss those free times when I can just lay in bed all day and read a good mystery novel. One of the books I've purchased quite a while ago is this one right here, which I haven't got the chance to read yet.

Please don't spoil me with details because I really want to find some time where I can open up this book and start reading. I love this kind of suspense, action and mystery novel. Reading it is like watching a scene unfold, it's really THAT exciting for me. 

Speaking of exciting, my room is finally getting a face lift after more than a decade. I've chosen the colour for the wall, which is going to be a shade of light and even lighter peach. God knows why I chose those colours. I just hope they look good on the walls. I'm very excited to see my new room when it's done!

Chap Goh Meh

Happy Chap Goh Meh everyone!

If you don't know what that is, it is a festive day we celebrate on the 15th day of Chinese New Year, which is also the last day of the CNY celebration. My family tradition for this day is very simple. Meal + firecrackers + lao sheng (which is quite new to us, actually). Without further ado, let me present you with some pictures.

We had to place this on the grown because it's either this or hang it on the tree which is quite dangerous. HSE, you know. LOL

And finally, lao sheng is a tradition quite popular in Singapore, where everyone mix a platter of finely chopped food for good luck, wealth and prosperity. I hope I got that right!

And it's back to reality tomorrow. There are a couple of things I need to do early morning and then a major thing that I need to get done later that day. I admit I'm quite nervous about this task. It's not something I normally do but it's a learning curve that I need to face sooner or later. There's really nothing that should hold me back, except there is the issue with my confidence. So I'm gonna make that a challenge: to overcome that fear. I know when I read this back later on, it'll sound like I'm exaggerating but at this moment, it feels right. Okay, to the bed-mobile! *mimicks mermaid-man*
