Run, Swim and Fly a Kite..

Hey friends,

Have you heard of the phrase “you got to learn how to run before you can walk?” Well that’s totally true for me when I experienced it firsthand. An analogy everyone would better relate to is “You are thrown in a pool without knowing how to swim, what will you do??” Do you give up and just drop like a rock to the bottom? Or do you try your hardest to stay afloat in the hope of someone rescuing you. Don’t do either of those? Surprised??

Yea, humans are born with and instinct to survive and think of when babies were born, did someone give them a manual on how to breathe but yet they inhale and exhale anyway. This somehow for me relates to you being dumped in a pool and being asked to survive. Swim and swim I would say. The faster your survival instinct kicks in the better it is for you. Moving forward, learn as much as you can in the quickest time possible for you will never know when you’ll be thrown in the pool or worst the ocean.

Somehow some teachers @ “gurus” @ “cifus” practice this. Their students are placed in situation totally foreign to them and they are forced to survive. But these teachers have an eye on them, willing to help and advice when their pupils are unable to move. A bit of nudging here and there, like how a mother eagle pushes her baby of the nest to teach it how to fly. Wow, it just amazes me how these baby birds are able to fly at first try. Soon enough the pupils will spread their wings and fly on their own. I want to mention few names but none are coming to my head now.

Never think that your teachers have forgotten you and don’t you dare forget them. Imagine yourself as the a kite! Yes a kite! When you are up in the air did you ever think of how you got up so high? Wasn’t it because of the pulling and nudging of the string attached to you, and the effort put into propelling you in the air. This string also symbolizes your safety harness knowing that you are up so high, you still feel safe cause you know there’s someone always someone there for you, holding you and guiding you.

Have someone come to your mind now?? When was the last you thanked and appreciated them?? Well I’m guessing your parents and family are the first to pop in followed by your mentors may it be from your career, sports, school and especially friends.

“The best teacher is yourself because no one knows yourself better then you do..”

…. …. ..

The first of many more to come??

Hot Air Balloons..


This weekend was an awesome one.. On Saturday my friends and I went to visit the Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.. The six of us (James, Peck Koon, Charles, Erica, Xiao Qi and myself) managed to squeeze ourselves in James’s car.. Haha.. This reminds me of times in UTP when there was only one car to travel anywhere.. 6 or 7 wasn’t a problem that time.. haha..

What’s unexpected was that this outing turned out to be a housemates gathering.. We were trying to meet up for some time now and it has never happen due to some sort of reasons la.. Just imagine the 6 of us are always never free the same time.. So yea, we took this chance to name it a housemates gathering as well.. Oh ya, forgot to include the part where we meet Gou Lin which wouldn't be a housemate gathering without him right and Auther as well.. haha.. Enough rambling for now..

Hallelujah - Kate Voegele..

Hallelujah - Kate Voegele Lyrics
Songwriters: Cohen, Leonard;

Well, I heard there was a sacred chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don't really care for music, do ya
Well, it goes like this: the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, your faith was strong, but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew ya
And she tied you to her kitchen chair
she broke your throne she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, baby, I've been here before
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
You know, I used to live alone before I knew ya
And I've seen your flag on the marble arch
And love is not a victory march
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah oh
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, there was a time when you let me know
What's really going on below
But now you never show that to me, do ya
And remember when I moved in you
the holy dove was moving to
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, maybe there is a God above
But all I've ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew ya
And it's not a cry that you hear at night
It's not somebody who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, oh Hallelujah oh
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Port Dickson Trip..

Hey Friends,

This weekend was nice as I was able to have a getaway from work and just chillax (chill + relax) with friends.. It was one of those weekends we could chillax a bit longer due to Friday being a public holiday.. The six of us, Adrian, Debbie, Sabrina - Deb's sister, Charles, Erica and myself just couldn't wait for this trip which we planned for some time dy (1 week).. Haha.. We were also joined by another cute and adorable she..



Take a look.. Her name is BABY the reason being, Deb couldn’t decide on a name and just started calling her baby for the time being and once Pebbles (from the Flintstone) was chosen, she only responded to baby.. Haha.. So much for choosing a name..


Ok, back to the trip.. We left KL around 3 and reached our accommodation at GLORY BEACH around 430 which we stayed for a few minutes before heading for the beach.. It wasn’t a surprise when we reached the beach, the sand we white and not too bad but the water was just horrible to say the least.. We walked along the beach till we found a spot we could chillax away from the overcrowded beach.. What did we expect on a public holiday? The beaches were closed exclusively for us? How I wish man.. Few of us dared to enter the water which the other watched..


Cleaned up and headed for dinner at what was "suppose to be" one of the best place in PD.. The seafood was nice but there are much better places I’ve been too.. Haha. Nvm not every place can be the best right.. Hehe.. We played MAHJONG, POKER and MONOPOLY DEAL for most of our time there..

And Yes Mahjong, I've learned how to play it and I’m not bad at all.. Haha.. Anyone want to play mahjong next time, please do call me yea.. Haha.. I'm kind of addicted to it I guess. Our time was occupied by the cute little bugger as well.. Haha.. The next day we went out exploring for another place to chillax and we found one, AVALON Beach which had way cleaner water then the place before..


Dear Housemates..

On our last day, we slept in till it was time for us to "check out" and after which we had some awesome lunch.. It’s called DIRTY MEE.. How did we get to know about this place?? Well, it's all thanks to Charles's GPS which gave us a list of places we could go for food and DIRTY MEE sounds the most interesting of the lot.. So off we went following the GPS to god know where, driving over rough terrains and off roads to reach our destination. But the food was worth it..


What do we call our group?? hurm..


Dirty Mee..
