步入执著的小步曲

“喂今晚去那趴”

“去Clarke Quay 吧, 还有其他人要在那见“

“恩我也是要在那见我表姐,她刚跟她男友分手了”

就这样加上近来因为公司离去的人也会在那。 我心已准备好去聆听并安慰他们,就如今早一样。

“好伤心,我表妹刚跟他男友分手了, 其实他男友好坏每天不是骂就是闹“

”那她为何还跟他在一起“

”应为我表姐相信他会改, 但那知道他真改了, 而是改变了心意“

这就跟我们办工室一样就应为深信着只要不惹事, 保持低调就不会出事。 但事实并非如此。这世界就是如此在你应为坚持着自己的信念时, 他已悄悄的离去改变,毕竟唯一不变的实事就是改变

执著的第一步::过分坚持于过分自己无为的信念, 而被世界的改变而抛气。学习放开吧。

Choosing the perfect shoes should it mean choosing the right shoe?

Oh my word

This is horrendous can’t believe how lazy I was that took me such a long time to write again. Just when i was thinking and procrastinating, thinking and procrastinating, thinking and procrastinating thinking and zzzzzz “bam” I fell asleep. LOL

Just then “Bzzzzzt”, “Bzzt”, “Bzzzzzzt”

“Knock, Knock, Knock”

“Knock, Knock, Knock”

“Uncle, Uncle, Uncle” screams my niece. I dragged my sorry little arse out of the bed and thought dang I was hoping for some sleep and maybe some inspiration in my sleep. “Yes” I said to my niece as I carried her. “Phone, Phone” she points furiously at the phone.

As picked up the phone it turns out it was one of my usual friends calling to whine and ask me out for shopping. “Happened again, Claire” I asked with a condescending tone knowing it’s gotta be another bad breakup.

 

“Yeah you wanna head out for the usual”

“Sure let me get dressed and I will meet you later”

 

We met up at Velocity had lunch and started to shop surprisingly although this time it was the same object of desire shoes……. there was a small twist. She actually wanted a pair of gym shoes so she can start working out. As we shop and look and try on the various pairs of shoes available I couldn’t help but notice the similiarity in the way she behave when she looks for her prospective half. Reviews after reviews, and opinions after opinions from her friends on what the perfect pair is like but none of her own views. After almost the whole day gone, 6 malls, and countless amount of bitching she finally settled on a pair which she didn’t even tried on. At which point I was too tired to nagged at her so I just let it go. and we had dinner and head our own separate ways

 

Two weeks later I decided to go hiking so I called Claire.

“Hey gal wassup? You feel like going for a hike.”

“Yeah sure how about Macritchie.” Yadda yadda yadda and we were off the next day. This was when I noticed she wasn’t wearing the same shoes she bought.

“Hey Claire what happened to your perfect shoes lol, tired of it already”

“Nah I went home try it out and realise it was the wrong size”

“Geez gal after all that and whats up with this pair dont you like have a problem with dark colored shoes, the brand and not to mentioned the dull design ………” I asked

“Yeah but turns out this is perfect, it is exactly right for me the size is right, the contours fit my feet fine, the darker tones just mean I dont have to wash it as often seeing how often I was my shoes lol”

“Uh huh wished you look at your relationships the same way”

 

And how true was that most of the time we are so obsessed with what we have been taught or shown what is the perfect man by our parents, peers and friends that we failed to look at it at our point of view. One of which must have money, house and car or good looking, suave and charming. I’m not saying the above is not important but isn’t finding the one that suits you more important. Isn’t the below also true:

 

Money can buy you almost anything but not the time and attention a guy is willing to spend on you when he truly loves you

Looks are a but a fading characteristic and if he only loves you for your looks how can he still love you in 10, 20 or even 30 years down the road

 

especially when like the right pair of shoes he is suppose to walk down the path of life with you for a long long time to come. So I hope to all those who are reading look at your current situation at a different light remembering the perfect one may not always be the right one. The right one however will always stay just as it is the right one.

 

To all those who say the above I hope that you will be able to find the person who you can say the below to:

 

You may not be the perfect one, but trust me when I say these you will always be the right one”

 

 


Reminiscing the KTM “Don’t remember me, Cherish me”

Phew It’s been long awaited but I finally got my Macbook Air. This thing is so amazing I don’t even know how to describe it and now as I sit in front of it I realize I don’t really know what to do with it. Then an idea pop up do what you have been proscratinating, and so its time to write my blog as I pick up my new baby and think of what to write I remember what happen at the KTM trip I had recently and decided to share.

It was a ordinary day not unlike today, my running hour mates and me were out on a field trip to the KTM tracks to reminisce about the good old days. All the kids were just as excited as us adults, we were all like little birds chattering and sharing our age old stories. But it was not to remain so for long, as typical Singaporeans we are,  30 minutes in was to be when we started complaining about how the KTM was horrendous loud noise, long hour trips, air con that drips, washroom facilities that consists of no more than a hole in the ground.

2 Hours in and I’m starting to feel weary from both the long walk and the endless complains I have been hearing. But finally we have arrived at the old mid stop coffee house. We proceed to sit down for our round of sandwiches and drinks. I was just thinking “phew a well deserved break finally” when

“Pa!!!!!! why are we here its so hot. Can I get a drink?”

The long loud scream breaking off my quiet piece of break. Oh well kids and parents, and with no surprise the father then sits down and says how he remember the good old days of traveling on the KTM. My mind was just tired and I was so ready to switch off and just move away so I can be by myself but heck I’m too tired and just refuse to move and boy was I glad I did stay. Just as his dad finish his story, the boy started to stand up and I thought to myself ” Oh well kids, did I really think he will be patient enough to let his dad finish his story”

“Pa, I love you!”

I guess his dad must have been as surprised as I was. As we both stood there wondering what the hell just happened I was glad his dad was the first to spoke cos hell yeah did I wanted to know what made the kid came up with such a surprising move.

“Son I love you too. Why the sudden reaction, don’t you want to hear me finish the story?”

“Pa because I am here, for now don’t remember me, just cherish me, just as I am for you now.”

My little sky of peace just got torn a big bigger. It was like a truck just hit me as I try to collect my thoughts and try to comprehend those little words that couldn’t have come out of something more unassuming then this little six year old kid standing right in front of me. How many times have we not understand the good things of our lives and just complain and bitch and just take it for granted. Our family and our friends not just the common things that make our life easier. Have we grown up and see the world more realistically or is the world really so dark the best way for us to get through is just see the bad and forget the good so we can be numbed, so we won’t get hurt. Is that any excuse for our behavior and not appreciate and give thanks to our little blessings. Tears start to flow down as I recalled my own behavior those times when I myself complain about the train and my dad for the long and dreary rides. All those times when I should remember ad thank my dad for the adventures for tucking me in the little bed on the train and reading me stories as the train slowly rock me to sleep. I decided there and then its time to end the hike as I bid my friends and club members good bye I rushed home and hugged all my family members and I left them all puzzled at my behavior, I went to my room pleased that however small my little hugs was I had just taken my littlest step towards the return of my innocence towards appreciating and loving all that was good to me. Thus if you reading this and you are right beside the ones you love, hug them show them or better still tell them you love them. The feeling will be very rewarding indeed I promise you and if they return back your affections all the more worthwhile it will be. As I bid you farewell I leave the following with you my friends:

“To all of my friends whom I have never said the words “I love you”

Don’t remember me I am here right now, cherish me just as I would always do the same for you”

Good night
