After-work Delight

20 Jan

Overworked or was I?  It’s been a few months since I have started working… shifting gears from freelancing to working full-time.  Indeed, I do feel overworked and slightly underpaid… but then again, a steady income did feel good!

and so….

The Greatest relief in the World comes from the fact that “this too shall pass“…

and so…

I’m thinking of taking a break because I know soon I can afford it.

The Greatest break in the World comes after “months of being overworked“…

and so…

Where would I go?  Where should I go?  To the mountains or the sunny beaches??  Soar or Float???

What could be more aesthetically appealing?  The mountaintops that steal the colours from the sun… the ocean that dances and sparkles with all hues possible…. the strenuous walk to the mountains or the lazing on the water/ gazing up the sky…

and so…

The quandary… exposure to the harsh cold or the scathing sun?

The Greatest dilemma in the World comes from having to choose “where to holiday“…

Meek Confession

16 Jan

I am and will always remain an aspiring writer.  I’m too scared to write what I really want to write, and so I write generic stuff.  Writing topically will never get me there, yes I know.  I wonder what it would be like to strip myself bare and write all that’s to be written… what would then remain of me…?  What scares me… my words or how my words may be (mis)judged?

At times, I have dared to bare my soul but I always stop myself halfway or rather within a quarter.  Then I start polishing the language until it becomes generic and so it will always be… :sigh:  Some day, I shall be strong.  One day, I shall write like I don’t care.  That day I shall become a writer in true sense….

Until then…

Let me talk about my movie marathon with a film-fanatic-friend [FFF].  This FFF and I are now estranged… we’ve lost touch… we’ve cut ties or rather I think I did the honour of cutting ties with him.  Well, last time we saw each other we reminisced our movie marathon era… it was either his place, his films and my chips or the other way round… “films” was the only bond between us and so our filmy bond was flimsy and flitting…

All that now remains is the memory of the bygone movie marathon memory!!!

Discovered Today

23 Dec

There is always news to be discovered, unearthed and learned secondhand.

The hijacking of a Libyan plane has ended peacefully after armed men who seized control surrendered in Malta… THE NEWS

Suspect Berlin attacker shot dead at Milan…THE NEWS

I’m tired of THE NEWS of dying and the killing…   It is time to rediscover and restore peace!  It is time we rediscover faith in each other and discover empathy in ourselves.

I was walking along… this path.  Maybe you were always there… maybe I passed by you everyday as I plodded along this path

UNTIL I saw you that dreadful day… and I can’t UN-SEE seeing you.  Oh, how I wish I had never ever SEEN you!!

The Boss of Calm

22 Dec

My Boss is the epitome of calm. He has this calm aura about him… whether he is panicking or just thinking – he exudes nothing but calm.

Coincidentally, I am the opposite.  I am anything but CALM. I am easily excited, I panic easy, I am full of enthusiasm and it all shows.

I still remember the day when I was first interviewed by my “Boss”.  He would ask a question and pause… Me being the typical “must-fill-the-silence” kinda person kept blabbering until my brains separated my mind from my tongue.  Suddenly, I was split into two – the mind wasn’t able to make sense of the words that my tongue and mouth were forming… and yet my tongue couldn’t take the hint and kept at it.

Fast forward two months… My boss is still the calm self and I still the opposite.  Fortunately, I have become great buddies with another hyperactive colleague.  She and I always speak about him and how calm he ALWAYS is.  She has been hatching plans to shake him off his calm but so far she hasn’t succeeded yet.

Maybe because I am anything but calm, I admire my boss even more.
