A couple of days ago, while I was driving down to the city, I got stuck at the lights. I was probably about 7/8 cars away from the lights. As I was waiting for the lights to turn green, as all the other drivers, suddenly there was this big fat guy walking towards the traffic lights, with a batton in his hand. I would think that, he's very very angry at that time and out of the blue, the grab this guy, probably in his teens, off his bike, leaving his bike lying on the floor. The big guy dragged that poor guy, which I think is deaf or dumb, as he couldn't speak/ defend himself. After a while I couldn't see them anymore, I wanted to help so much, but I couldn't do much. I make a U-Turn at the lights to see where the big guy is taking the poor dumb guy to. By the time the lights turn green and after I make the turn, I can no longer see both of them.
Funny thing was that, everyone turned their heads and look, but as the lights turn green, it was as if the incident never register... Off everyone went with their own destinations. What is the world coming to? The incident got stuck in my head, as it makes me think, how safe is the world today? Or should I rephrase myself, how much more unsafe can the world be?

" A ship will be safe if it stays at the port. But that is not why ships are made for... "
It might sound really simple. Certain people might not understand it, I don't know why. Some people understands it completely, and the next minute, they totally forget about it. This quote lingered in my mind all the time as I think the meaning it carries is really significant. Well, I do hope everyone knows what's their purpose in life as it's important to keep us going and going... At times, you might feel lost in life, but don't give up cause everybody is here for a purpose... :) And sometimes, you might think " Why is the whole world turning their back against me?" Take a short moment, to look and see, it's probably you that is turning your back against the whole world...
Hey all, hope the first quarter of your year has been good. I've been really busy with life. As mentioned before I've tendered my resignation and my last day was mid-January. I'm on my own now running an event management business with a couple of friends. So far it has been busy, it has been fun and also very stressful.
Also been meaning to update the page with lots of pix that I've taken over the last couple of months. Will do that when I find some time.
Would also like to share this quote that was sent to me:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away...

Hey all... Happy New Year to everyone! I've got a short story here to share with everyone... Make your judgement, okay? :)
One day a father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the firm purpose of showing his son how poor people can be. They spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family. On their return from their trip, the father asked his son, "How was the trip?"
"It was great, Dad."
"Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked.
"Oh Yeah" said the son.
"So what did you learn from the trip?" asked the father.
The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog and they had four. We have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end. We have imported lanterns in our garden and they have the stars at night. Our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. We have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight. We have servants who serve us, but they serve others. We buy our food, but they grow theirs. We have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them."
With this the boy's father was speechless. Then his son added, "Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are."
Too many times we forget what we have and concentrate on what we don't have. What is one person's worthless object is another's prize possession. It is all based on one's perspective. Makes you wonder what would happen if we all gave thanks for all the bounty we have, instead of worrying about wanting more.....

Today is the first day of the new year. People always talk about New Year resolutions and stuff. I guess the best thing to do is to sit down, take a moment and look at what you have done in the last 12 months. This will give you a gauge of how much you have achieved in terms of what was planned at the end of last year. From there, you can look forward to next year and plan all the things you hope to achieve and go for it.
Wishing you a Happy New Year, may it be blessed with peace, love and happiness.

It has been a really sad week last week. On Tuesday afternoon, one of our colleagues passed away while she was in the office. She came back from lunch and sat down in her chair. After that she just passed out and no one could revive her. It was a very sad thing to have happened as she left behind her husband and nine months old daughter. She has been very stressed lately and I hope now she can rest in peace. The other reason that said it was a really sad week was that one of my colleagueís dad passed away during the week and one of my dadís friend passed away as well. There seems to be a bad vibe going round.
Well we are reaching the end of the year. Hopefully next year will be a much better year as I am sure a couple of my friends will agree with me when I say this year was a rather unforgiving year. Then again, a lot of things that happen may sometimes be a blessing in disguise.
Well we have completely moved in to our new place. There is still a lot of work to be done. Iím actually sitting on the floor typing this as the available internet phone line is situated upstairs and there is nothing here as the whole floor needs to be cleaned. Iíve also subscribed to ADSL (YES ! :) ) and will probably get the service by next week.
One more thing, Iíve quit my job as a Business Consultant. Tendered my resignation letter last week. Buggering off to work on some projects with some friends. Will share the details once everything is more concrete. ITS NOW OR NEVERÖ.
Well, my back is starting to ache from this hard floor. Update later.
Wish you all a Merry Christmas, take care, have fun and may peace be with you !

Had been so busy lately that I haven't really had time to even sit down. I know on days I have been complaining but it actually has been good. Haven't had a dull moment as every moment is go, go, go until bedtime and then wake up and start all over again. I guess there is no point complaining but try to enjoy the ride and to realise that in every moment there is something new to be learned.
Dance as if no one is looking,
Work like you don't the need money,
Live life as if there is no tomorrow,
And you will be living life to the fullest.

Life is so weird in its own way. Sometimes I wonder, is there a set of rules whereby one can refer to when they come to a dead-end? How would you know whether you have had live a full life before? It's so subjective, isn't it? A friend told me once, if I were to die tomorrow, I MUST say that I had lived a full life today. But what is a full life? I don't quite know. But what I do know is that to give what you have 100% and you have told everyone that you love them and how much they mean to you and whatever else you wanna say about them, then you know if you die, you'll be able to die peacefully. Probably that's what a full life is to me. Give what you have whole - heartedly cause that's the only way to taste and understand life completely, though you might get hurt sometimes... Remember to live everyday as your last as well cause you wouldn't really know whether you'll still be here tomorrow!
Oh ya... Someone once said that "Three grand essentials to happiness in life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for." That's all for now... :)

Hey...been rather busy in the last few weeks. Working on a project with some friends and have been shifting houses. There was a landslide in my back garden, therefore rendering my house unsafe. Its very stressful to pack stuff and move without having any prior palnning and arrangement. Haven't been this stressed and busy for a very long time. On days, I don't even have time to sit down for more than 15mins. I guess at the end of the day, there is no point complaining if I choose to do what I do. Should try and enjoy the process while working....passion yah.
Well its Friday again, thank god. At least I have to weekend to settle things in. Will post some pix of the land slide soon. Later....

"Everything in life changes you in some way. Even the smallest things. If you do not accept these changes you do not accept yourself. For through these changes brings new and greater things to you, making you wiser, as time progresses. To avoid these changes is a loss. You only live your life once. Do not waste a minute of it avoiding things. Let them come to you, and learn from them. There is always tomorrow."

Been sick again. Been sick since Saturday afternoon. I think I needed a bit more rest and lots more water to be drunk. Missing all that, I fell sick. Therefore, I missed out on Mellisa's B'day party on Saturday night and a friend's engagement ceremony on Sunday morning. Was disappointed that I couldnít make it to my friendís engagement. Would have like to witness the ceremony.
Last week has been a rather hectic week, in terms of work and issues regarding my personal life. It seems Iím at a crossroad and decisions regarding my life has to be made, with regards to long term outcomes...which makes it all so more difficult.
Got to run for a meeting. The outcome of this meeting might be a new start to something more interesting and promising. We'll see...

What is future? The future is something you can't see or know, therefore it is not there, it's just there in your thoughts... so, why should we be scared of something that's not there. Very weird way of defining it, but you can't actually say that it's not true at all, right? This was made known to me by a very good friend of mine this morning. Recently, I have been thinking a lot about what will happen in the future and I think I'm stressing myself thinking too much about it. Then I realise, if things were to happen, they will eventually happen. We cannot do much to change it, if it's gonna be bad. What we can actually do is just cherish every moment as we can only get to live once.
But then again, nothing is certain in life... So, why do we have to stress ourself so much for something we can't see or something we don't know? However, you shouldn't apply this thinking to everything that you do. Everyone wants a good future and in order to have a good future, you have to work towards it. You might wanna stress yourself about your career, but keep it to a limit... Don't take for granted every other thing, just because of one thing. It will not be worth it...

Never welcome something you cannot entertain,
Never open your door if you meant to close your heart,
Never accept love if you canít give yourself in return,
Never start a relationship you know you want to end.

Was on MC today. The stomach wasn't feelin to good. Its been awhile since I've had gastric problems. I think I needed to chill out anyway. Spent some time cleaning my room and updating the site. Managed to update pics from the mooncake festival dinner, Vanessa Mae's concert and also pics from Winnie's B'day.
The weekend was busy. Been trying to stay home as much as I can, firstly to spend some time with my parents and furthermore, it does feel really good to sit in my room watching TV and wasting the afternoon away. Also picked up my long awaited Coolpix 5700 Digicam over the weekend. Spent sometime trying it out on subjects in my garden...hey hey, taking test shots of everything. The shots came out pretty well, I think :)
