charlotte's web

Wow, it feels like forever since I last updated this space. No doubt many things happened lately and for obvious reasons, I guess I won't be writing about it.

Anyhow, I've been very occupied with work stuff lately. Things have been pretty much hectic, with all the video editing, travelling, managing, exercising and whatnots. It's really tiring but yet, you still wanna continue and do it more, that kinda feeling. Okay, maybe sometimes fatigue and insomnia come crawling back into the body, but all in all, it's becoming more of a routine for me and that I have to survive and go on in life, yes? :)

Well, that said, I'm feelin' so excited for Christmas this year! Not that I am not in the previous years, but this year's gonna be magical cos it's a brand new Christmas, celebrating it with many different friends & colleagues. Just by thinking and typing all these, I feel so pumped up! Who wouldn't love this festive season when the atmosphere is cool and happy and cheery, right? I haven't really settled down & manage my budget yet, but will do soon as I'm really saving up for something important in the future, that of course gonna be so worth it! :)

So what's on my social calendar for the upcoming festive month? Gonna be yet another busy month for me, but I guess it's gonna be lots of sweating and tearing and prolly a sense of satisfaction, yes? Celebrated Christmas with different colleagues here was so fun and exciting. I would definitely remember the water bombs, water guns, the tray of bee hoon (haha!), the fake champagne, the sakura & many many more. These are of course only memories that I can look back and smile to myself, thinking how much fun I had in 2011 Christmas.

I do still have upcoming celebrations; before, during and even after Christmas itself. So there'll be many many more gift exchanges, good food and most importantly good company. Oh man, how I wish December won't end so early. A month is not enough to spend time with our loved ones!

On a happier note, I will be embarking on a new journey in 2012; the journey I have decided to take since 2009. Wish me luck! And no, it's not changing of jobs if that's what you're thinking. Heh.

Have a very Merry Christmas everyone, and a wonderful 2012!

rainbow paths

Sometimes when life takes a tumble, look back. See the joy and happiness you have ever felt before and then relive the moments with a better and positive mindset in the future.

I did. And I would love to recreate "a world filled with joy and affection and endless possibilities", with you.

"whatever happens, life has to go on"

This has become one of the most used phrases nowadays when facing a tough situation. I think people take advantage of this phrase to shield their cowardice in facing the situations. 

I believe that we have to at least give a try to break the shackles and change the situation and make it desirable. Life offers us with everything, but we are always afraid to take more than a step further due to the risk involved. Try beyond the safe zone cos nothing is impossible if we are ready to give out best to get what we want. 

I hope, I wish but how far can I? 

This one's for you and me,
living out our dreams
We're all right where we should be
Lift my arms out wide I open my eyes
And now all I wanna see
Is a sky full of lighters. 


Fly me to somewhere I can live my life happily, will you? (Phuket's not good enough for me, I'm sorry)

365 days. 

A year is all I need to prove everyone wrong.

Julie & Julia project. Similar much? :)

get up. 

New York, you know you make my heart skip,
In my dreams, I make it into Vegas.

Seattle hits me every time,
I can't get Chicago off my mind.

New Jersey taught me how to let go,
And I've learned that's all I need to know

In this moment, we're connected
If we fall, we fall together.

Never want to get stuck back in the past. Please, pull me away from all these distractions.

Good luck and all the best.

On a side note, look what I received in my mail yesterday !

paradox of work ? 

Work generally takes up a third or prolly three quarters of the time available for living. Work is a strange experience: it provides some of the most intense and satisfying moments, it gives a sense of pride and identity, yet it is something most of us are glad to avoid.

Do you know that 20 percent of the male adult population in imperial rome did NOT have to work . By having attained a life of idleness, they believed that they had reached excellence in their lives. However, by even thinking about so, it just makes women more vulnerable in the past; being treated as slaves and servants, or even sex objects. That said, some women are still being treated this way, despite the existence of feminist acts movements and whatnots.

The lack of realism about future career options is in part due to the rapidly changing nature of adult jobs, but it is also caused by many young people's isolation from meaningful job opportunities and adult working models.


I would love to raise a topic regarding social media right now, but I will do it in another post, another time.

Till then.

reason to believe

Everybody's got a secret
Can you tell me what is mine?
Can you tell me what you'd find?
I'll tell you if you keep it
I promise not to lie

Well, I have the fears, the pain and the tears
I just can't hide
It all disappears
'Cause everything passes with the time
All you need
Is reason to believe

All I need, is reason to believe.

i am autotelic ! 

It interests me. It is the source of satisfaction. Achieving something that one thinks is important. Without such a consciousness or motivation it seems to me that life could be rather dull and purposeless and I wouldn't want that kind of life. Of complete leisure, say, of having absolutely nothing to do that one felt was worth doing - that strikes me as a rather desperate situation to be in.

Needs few material possessions and little entertainment, comfort, power, or fame because so much of what I do is already rewarding. Because experiencing such flow in the things I do, in life, when interacting with people, when eating and even when alone with nothing to do, I'll be less dependent on the external rewards that keep others motivated to go on with a life composed of dull and meaningless routines.

More autonomous and independent because I can't be easily manipulated with threats or rewards from the inside or the outside. At the same time, being involved with everything around me and therefore be fully immersed in the current of life.

To be totally absorbed in what I am doing and to enjoy it so much that I don't want to be doing anything else. That is what I really need.
