Hope Abides

Hope abides; therefore I abide.
Countless frustrations have not cowed me.
I am still alive, vibrant with life.
The black cloud will disappear,
The morning sun will appear once again
In all its supernal glory.

U know this thing called life?...

Many times I think it's a mystery. Especially these few days, there's a lot of things going on inside me. And I can't tell anyone about what I am going through. I don't want to blog about it either. Simple questions throw me into a thinking zone. My answers are quick and precise, but I don't believe them a 100%. I've been thinking about my future a lot these days. What's in store? What's gonna happen? Where will I be in 5 years? Obviously there are no answers to these questions, but there is my perception of the ideal answers. The truth is, even these ideal scenarios swimming in my mind are a little pixelated. I am trying to get a clearer picture. I'm in the midst of trying out new things, of stepping over my comfort zone, of persuing what may be my calling. It's all early days now, but it's a step in the right direction indeed. I can only take one step at a time and make decisions when the time is right. Until then, I shall be looking hard to find the beauty between this haziness.

I know I've been behind on the blogging lately. The last week has been a little bit frantic. First the top secret mission, (I really can't say much about it right now. Perhaps time will allow me to do so) then the big 4 day trip to Cameron Highland's with the relatives. There is really nothing much to do up there in the highlands except go for walks (which we did), visit the tea plantations (which we did), eat, drink and read (which i did). I also took some cool pictures (that I shall put up tomorrow cos I am toooo tired today.)

Also, the blogger booze was good although, I must admit, I didn't mingle as much as I should have. I'm kinda shy that's why I asked other people to come with me. However, that didn't help much in the end. I did meet Daniel though, which was nice!
Next time however, I gotta do much better than last week!

Alritey then, off to bed. Shall continue to blog tomorrow.

Buenas noches mi amigas y amigos.

If eyes could speak...

If eyes could speak, his would have said "Hi there!".
If eyes could speak, mine would have said "Hey, how's it going?"
If eyes could speak, his would have said "I am good thanks and you?"
If eyes could speak mine would have said "I am fine."

Then my eyes would stop talking. And so would his. But both eyes wouldn't let things go. Our eyes would still sought out each other, hoping that the otherwould still be there, waiting.

And then his eyes would start speaking again. His eyes would have said " Wait for me, for I have more to say. I just need a few minutes and I will be on my way. Will you wait for me?"

His eyes wishing, hoping, waiting.

My eyes would have replied "Yes, I'll wait for you. I will be back. I shall be back when you're done. For I have things to tell you too."

A spark lights up first her eyes, then his. Both eyes smile.

His eyes look away knowing that the time will come.
My eyes look away knowing that the time will be soon.

Blue Sky Today and Blogger Booze Tomorrow!

I woke up this morning and the first thing that entered my mind was “Woohoo, it’s Friday. Is it just me or is the sky prettier today? There’s a spring in my step as I step into the office. I wish the dragon lady good morning warmly. She responses, looking at me. I can see she’s wondering where I got this unusual passion from. Haha!

The day is going by fast. Soon it will be lunch time and 2 more hours to go before I can away from this boring ol’ routine and on to something much more exciting!

Like tomorrow, I will be at the Blogger Booze happening at the Modesto’s Hartamas Walk @ Hartamas Shopping Centre, Plaza Damas at 9pm. It will be fun to meet new people, fellow bloggers and enthusiasts, have a couple of drinks at the same time. Come one, come all! Let your hair down, take off your glasses (that's what I do :P)and have some fun! If u would like more info about the event check it out here!

Hope to see u there!

Come join me at the Blogger Booze...

The past few days I’ve been on an emotional rollercoaster. No, I haven’t disappeared, I am just hiding. I had a lot of things that I could have blogged about but I didn’t want to. I preferred to put that energy into diverting my emotions on to the right path again. And no, I have yet to reach the “yellow brick road” but I am getting there. As thoughts whiz past one another inside, I take pleasure internalizing them. I don’t want to bother the people around me with these little inconsistencies of my life. Let me be the one to deal with it. In the meantime, I will try to be the same ol’ easygoing, always smiling Anu. I did say try!!! It’s going to be a tad bit harder now, with the sudden appearance of the ugly monster bearing the initials PMS, but it can be done. Can be done. With my pedometer at hand (or rather strapped to my pants) I am walking around with only one objective in mind. To get to that 10,000 step! I fear I have failed today.For today I have spent much time going after that other big dream of mine – a fulfilling career. Ok what… at least it was time well spent!

And yes, in my efforts to get back on track I’ve decided to go to the Blogger Booze this Saturday happening at the Modesto’s Hartamas Walk @ Hartamas Shopping Centre, Plaza Damas at 9pm. Yeah, it’s for bloggers (new, old or just about anyone!) to meet new people, network and most importantly, have a couple of drinks. This cool event is organized by my friend Daniel. The last time I met him…2000? Well, it was a looooong time ago at Domino’s in Sunway. So yes, looking forward to meeting him after ages. Join us lah, the more the merrier right? (It’s cliché but u gotta admit it is so true!)

“In Every Life There’s Drama.” So goes the Hallmark Channel slogan. I totally agree.When you think about it, what would life be without drama? A total bore. One would hope that life is full of drama of the good kind – happiness, success, fun. But as we all know, life just doesn’t work that way. U’ve gotta have the good and the bad. No choices there. So when life deals u the hard stuff, why resent it, why fight? U (read I) should take in stride. Don’t ask “Why me? Why do I have to deal with this crap????” Instead think about what’s happening and ask “What can I learn from this?” Granted it may take u a while before getting to this stage (yes, I am talking about me here), but when u do get there, take time out to answer that. U will be surprised by what u can learn from it. If by chance, u can’t answer the question then, it’s alright, no pressure. Sometimes answers take its time to surface. Sometimes u will understand why things happen later. Hakuna Matata.

I’m taking my own advise to heart. I’m gonna take time out, think what I can learn from this and move along. On to the next episode!

Hope S(t)inks!

Last week has been kinda (for a lack of a better word) shitty. Not in a something bad has happened kinda way, and yet, just plain ol' irritatingly shitty. If I could only use one sentence to describe the week it would be "so damn interesting yet so bloody annoying". Yup, nothing much has changed, as u can see. Gerrrrrrrrrr!

FYI, I was doing a-ok on my own, minding my own business, doing my own thing, and then of course things had to change. A glimmer of hope beckoned and I thought perhaps, just perhaps, life could change for the better. I let that glimmer of hope into my heart too - obviously a big mistake, on hindsight. One week later there is nothing but silence. Silence is not golden by the way. I'll have u know that silence is just so damn annoying.

*Takes a deep breath*

Anyways, if this is an episode of life that I have to go through, then surely I can get through it to the end right? Of course I can! Can somebody pass me the remote, I wanna get to the end of this...;)
