Another year...

As another year comes to an end, the same ol' question comes to mind. How would I rate this year?

I achieved a few things this year. I was looking for a better job, and I got one. I lost some weight (ok, so now it's back to normal, but that's another story), stuck to a diet that I never knew I could do. I took the plunge. I've learnt a lot over the past five months, am still learning. I've met new people. So taking all things into consideration, it's been a pretty good year.

Next year, my aim is to be more independent. Get my own car, house perhaps. Decide on what I want to do with my life. Listen more to my inner voice. Do things that will make me happy, happier. Love a little more, live a lot more. Make it a year of new attempts. Make things happen for myself. Enjoy the quiet moments. And the loud ones.

As cliche as it sounds, I wanna make each moment, or least each day, count.

Is there hope! Hope there is!

The truth is life is a bitch. You keep saving the right words for the boring, mundane but necessary stories that when it comes to the fun, non-work related bits, you are lost for words. Somehow I've got to get my act together. Somehow I've got to get past this. For there is more to life than work, although it doesn't seem like it these days.

There's holidays and the promise of the next holiday. There's an interesting guy, oh yes...there's music and the half bottle of white wine just for me. There is the anticipation of the future. There is reason to carry on. There are reasons for expression. There is hope. There will always be hope.

Quickie No2

Lest you think that I am still having fun in the land down under... I gotta tell u that I am back home now. Back to the heat. Back to work. Back to the hustle and bustle of KL.

No more crisp spring days. No more Max Brenner. No more $3 coffees. Oh how I miss those coffees! And it was lovely to catch up with ol' friends. And words can't describe how wonderful it was to play with baby Aryan...what a cutie!

And yeah I have pictures. But u just gotta hang in there for a while, the camera is currently working its way from north to south New Zealand, with a little help from parental units who are there now. So hang in there!

I Love Melbourne!

Just incase anyone's wondering what I'm up to...I am away from the crazy world of journalism and am currenly renewing my vows of endless love with Melbourne. Love this place! It doesn't feel strange or alien. It feels like I am picking up from where I left. I know the streets of the city, the little lanes that have so much culture and uniqueness...I could go on and on...but I can't. I'm off to meet a friend. I am going to enjoy every second of this holiday!

Kiss Kiss

One of the best things about being alive is the existence of kisses.

Soft sweet kisses. Hard needy kisses. Kisses where tongues collide.

Kisses on the forehead, eyes, nose. Kisses, kisses, kisses!

When lips meet and while tongues talk, I'll give a u a little part of my soul.

15

15 days before I go to Oz! Yay! I can't wait...Spring time is my favourite season. The weather is usually wonderful during this time...plus or minus a few Melbourne showers...but what is a little rain when there is shopping, coffee and cousins! And not to mention ol' friends. I will also be in Sydney for a couple of days. Yeah, I will be low of funds after I get back but I will high on fun,fun,fun! And so the countdown begins!

Quickies

1. I've been working at the Malay Mail for just over a month now. (And what a month it has been!)

2. The social life has climbed up a notch. I've met a few new people. Not sure if anything more's gonna come out it, but... it's good.


3. I'm still sorta wondering about mr.wrong-but-feels-like-right. Hmmm...


4. I'm quite hot for Josh Radnor right now, u know, the guy who plays Ted Morsby in 'How I Met Your Mother'. (See pic below for clarification! Haha!)

Margarita Dreamin'

7pm and the sunday blues sets in. Work starts again tomorrow. Wish I could be on a permanent holiday. Well that's not entirely true. I do enjoy working. I like seeing my name and my story in print. It is extremely cool that a journalist can actually make a change in someone's life, like I did.

Still, I wish I had the opportunity to take a holiday whenever I want to.To sit by the beach, sipping a margarita, reading a good book while listening to the waves hitting the sand. Maybe someday I'll get that chance, to work and take breaks whenever I want. To do what ever I want. If only I could be that lucky.

Any single sexy millionaires reading my blog right now? Send me a message. Haha.

One can only hope, and I can keep on dreamin'. I shall keep on workin'!

And who knows one day my dreams could come true.

Respect!

Learning the ropes....is exhausting. But fun and interesting. Very exciting. It can be a bit overwhelming, at least initially. I have new found respect for journalists everywhere. Seriously!!! Still, there is a certain sort of satisfaction seeing ur hard work in print for all to see...Absolutely!!!5 minutes later, it's back to work again...

And now, for good ol' sleep. Oh how I've missed it!

It Only Gets Better From Here...

I haven't blogged about this yet. And I've known about this for a while now. Somehow it felt right just swimming around in my own consciousness, heart and mind. But now, I can't keep it inside no more. I gotta say it.


I am starting my job as Sub-Editor tomorrow! Yay!

Well, for a month I will be learning the ropes, getting into the journalism groove and then, it's gonna be sub-editing all the way.

I am excited, oh yes. I've only wanted to do this since I was 17. Finally, I am in!

It's gonna be great!

Could Mr. Wrong Actually Be Mr. Right?

When I was a teenager I had a mental picture of my very own Prince Charming. In my mind, he would be a tall, dark handsome guy who had a smile that would melt a matron's heart and eyes that would radiate kindness. He'd have a good, stable job, enjoy going out occasionally and would love to buy me presents a couple of times a year. I was even keeping fingers crossed that he'd turn out to be romantic!

But what happens when u are all grown up, doing what adults do and u come across one person, who stands out from the hundreds of people you meet?

Someone who shows u whole new world of the same ol' world. Someone who makes the passing of each day worth it. Someone who doesn't fit the image of your ol' Prince Charming and yet somehow makes life colourful, makes u feel alive.

What do u do? Listen to your heart or your mind? Or just let the tide take u where u are supposed to go?

Is it the Law of Attraction or Coincidence?

I've been experimenting lately, mostly with thoughts. Expanding my horizons, so to speak.

The Law of Attraction has been on mind. You know, it's that law that says you attract into your life whatever you think? They say your dominant thoughts will find a way to manifest. Not so hard to believe right?

I've been actively visualising what I want, what I really really want in life. I close my eyes and see it, feel it, bask in the warmth of it.

And suddenly things happen, moving me closer to that dream. I can't help but wonder if the Law of Attraction that's working its magic or is it merely a coincidence?

The answer is elusive for now. I can only exploit the opportunity that the Universe has given me, fully and wholeheartedly. Let's see which road this encounter leads me to...

Wish me luck!

Priceless!

Day 14 fell on a Sunday. Last Sunday. I woke up feeling excited. It was almost over. I had done it. I had done IT! Gone without rice and bread for 14 days. Yea! And at the end of the day, when I weighed 4 kgs less than when it all started, I was happy. Now I know I can do whatever I set my mind to. And that feeling? Priceless!

Heart Speak

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love

I've been watching but the stars refuse to shine
I've been searching but I just dont see the signs
I know that its out there
There's got to be something for my soul somewhere

I've been looking for someone to shed some light
Not just somebody to get me through the night
I could use some direction, and I'm open to your suggestions

There are moments when I don't know if its real or if anybody feels the way I feel
I need inspiration, not just another negotiation

All I want to do is find a way back into love
I can't make it through without a way back into love and
If I open my heart again I guess
I'm hopin you'll be there for me in the end

(From Way Back Into Love from the movie Music and Lyrics)

The return of the Diet!

Diets. U gotta love em. Or hate them. Me, I've always hated them.

I've tried a couple. The only-drink-this-soychoco-shake-for-all- meals diet. That cabbage soup diet thingy. The Herbal life thingy. After the initial high of losing weight, things go back to normal, so too the pounds.

So why have I embarked on a brand spanking new diet I hear u ask ?

Well, I am tired of thinking that I can't go without rice for 2 days. I I want to prove to everyone and even more myself, that I can be disciplined. That I can resist temptation. That I can stick to a program. That I'm no giver up-er. That's right. I've taken on the 14 day No Carbs, No Sugar, No Fun Diet!


Day 5 proved to be quite historical. I've lost 2 kgs. AND...even bigger than that...I managed to resist every piece of curry puff, pisang goreng, spring roll, doughnut and chocolate cake at the party at work today. Damn good job if I have to say so myself. That is a BIG achievement.


So what happens after Day 14? I will have meat, eggs, and oh yes, vege and fruit. But I will make an effort to cut down as much carbs as I can.


And this time...I will make it! HAAAAA!

Butterflies!

A lot happened last week. New job. Trying to get used to the new environment, new role, new people.

Perhaps this new start has clicked opened Pandora's box. Or maybe it's something else altogether. I feel different. I feel a little strange. It's not necessarily a bad thing. Feels like something has awakened. Like something is happpening. Not sure exactly what, but...something.

Butterflies in the tummy...flies up to the heart...then head, then they do somersaults right back to the tummy. Ever get that feeling? Settle down now butterflies, may Friday come soon.

As I my last day approaches, I am thankful to be reminded that I have made a difference to some people in the school and that they will missing me (at least for a while)...It's really good to know that my efforts in helping the kids and teachers are appreciated. Here's what these two students, Jo Anna and Jozelle made for me yesterday. (L-R) Jozelle & Jo Anna.

Fly!

When u are about to leave your old job for a brand new, spanking, exciting one, thoughts tend to deviate from the present job from time to time. One month’s notice feels like a month's detention. And the focus is all on the day u’ll be free!

Then things happen, good things. And u realize that there will be things about the place, the people, the job that u'll miss when u leave.

Like random hugs from 7 year olds. When kids give me their piece of art and tell me it’s for me. I shall miss the light in the eyes of a boy when he finally gets the book he’s been waiting for. Or the way 5 year old Shaun says ‘Thank you Ms. Aaaaanu’ when I give him his library book. Or when I am mentioned in the school newsletter with the kindest of words. I almost, yes almost, shed a tear.

Good-bye to Miss Anu

We regret to inform you that our lovely Library Assistant, Miss Anu, is leaving the school. Monday, 26 May will be her last day in the library. Please take time to come and say good-bye, or send her an email message: anu@mkis.edu.my to express your appreciation for her wonderful service during the past two years and to wish her well in her new position.

And sometimes, just once, maybe twice, u wish that something more would happen so that you could stay.

But u know u can’t. Because u gotta get out there and spread the wings. And fly.

More green tea?

Sometimes amidst the same ol' boring routine; the craziness of everyday life - a couple of hours, a little silly talk, some yummy food, free flow of green tea and funny, interesting company is all one needs to reignite life's batteries again.

Quickie!

Life has been pretty crazy since I got the new job. So many things to do, not enough time to do it all. My picking-up-a-book-whenever-I-please phase will soon be over. To compensate, I am having a buffet of books at home. Reading them as fast as I can. I only have till May 26, u know. So if I don't blog often...u know why!

I try to enjoy work as much as I can. The mountains of books waiting to be sorted and shelved I still hate. No matter how hard I try, I can't muster the energy nor the enthusiasm to sort them out and shelve, shelve, shelve. Grrr, geram! Still I try to remember to take mental pictures of the kids saying funny things or being absolute sweeties. Who knew thank you's from a 4 year old would melt my heart in an instant? There is always a silver lining in every dark cloud eh?



Back to my book...

Happiness!

The BIG event has arrived! I have a new job. From June 2nd onwards, I will be working at a English Language Training centre, they train teachers to teach English. And I will be responsible for all the writing, editing, researching of marketing materials and publications.

The job description excites me. And I like the fact that I will be making a transition from Library Assisant to Marketing Communication Coordinator. My last day at the school will be the 26th. After that I shall take a few days break, maybe go to Penang or Malacca, get ready for a new chapter in my life.

On second thoughts, let's forget about all that glamour and slinkiness I craved in my previous post, shall we?

This is it, ladies and gentlemen. I give u the BIG event!

BIG!

It’s been a while since I blogged. I’ve been waiting for that something 'big' to come up. I wanted my next post to be a memorable one, u know, complete with the grand orchestra, black tie, slinky gowns, the fireworks. But nothing 'big' has happened…yet.

That’s not to say nothing has happened since the last time I blogged. Small things have happened of course. Found not one but two old friends on Facebook. Saw an amazing performance at KL PAC called 'three.'

I finally got hold of 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' by Khaled Hosseini!


Watched ‘The Kite Runner’ on Thursday. Nice one, it certainly did justice to the book, in my opinion. Had fun talking nonsense and sipping Kopi Ais with an online friend who is now a friend. He sure is entertaining that Sharky fella! Friday night’s chillin’ out session morphed into clubbing session – fun,fun,fun! I've also changed the layout of the blog. Did u notice? And yet...


I'm just waiting for that 'big' event to happen!

Breathless!

My 32nd birthday arrived on 7th April and went, fast. For one day I was excited, exhuberant and special. I had a home made cheese cake and not one, but two bouquets of flowers. Had drinks with a friend. Dinner with the family. The next day it was back to business. Work was getting me down (again). Felt like there was a big chance that I'd be single at 60. Then I happened to check out new arrivals at MPH and saw a sight that made my heart skip a beat! Paulo Coelho has a new book out! It's called Brida! It's about a girl looking for her soulmate! I glanced at the synopsis and promptly fell in love with life once again.


I can't wait to get my hands on it!

Dragons & Blessings...

I had a dream last nite. One that was a little strange. I was at a theme park with my sister. I was supposed to go to work after that. (Strange no? Going to the theme park before starting work?:P) And there was this thrill ride. Sorta like a rollercoaster but in water. The rollercoaster was in a shape of a dragon. As I looked at it I suddenly realised that the rollercoaster was alive! The dragon was real but 'tame'. People on the ride came back without a scratch, so I decided to join in as well.

After the ride ended, (which wasn't at all scary) I went looking for the ladies, but couldn't find an available one. On the way back, I bumped into my grandmother. My 'Ammumma' who passed away 8 years ago! I asked her how come she was there, and her answer was 'simply' (in Malayalam, my mothertongue). Then she held my hands for a few seconds...I felt comforted and supported. And then I woke up!

Being the big 'dreamer' that I am, I just had to find out what the dream could possibly mean. There were two aspects of the dream that could be interesting - the dragon and Ammumma. According to some sources on the net:

DRAGON

This large, mystical creature may represent large and mystical forces inside of you. As far as dream symbols go, the dragon may represent the enormous power in your unconscious. It could symbolize repressed unconscious material, including fear. However, the dragon in our dreams is generally a positive symbol. It may represent a period of time when the dreamer will confront his fears and empower himself to effectively cope with negative emotions, extreme materialism, and be able to obtain greater inner and outer freedom.

(Interesting...)

DEATH/DECEASED

To talk to a dead relative is a sign of great good luck.


(Very interesting...)

So basically the dream means I'll have to be strong and do what I have to do to get ahead and realize my dreams... and that I've got Granny's blessings too. I can live with that. Not that there's any need to take it too seriously...dreams can be just dreams too.

Wanted: A 'Friend'.

I got a call from my aunt last night.

She asked about my job and my plans for career change before she dropped the bomb.



Aunty: I wanted to ask u, do u have a friend?"

Me: Friend? (Feigning ignorence of subject matter soon to be brought forward)

Aunty: No friend friend, but u know, somebody lah.

Me: Oh, that friend. Hmm. No, no friend. But I am meeting people...

Aunty: Ya, that's good. Must meet people, go out, u know?

Me: Yes, I do.

Aunty: Also I wanted to ask u, do u like boys who are homely or outgoing?

Me: (Trying hard not to laugh) Hmm, not so outgoing. Not so homely.

Aunty: Ok. U know I sometimes come across some boys. But don't know if u will like them or not. So I thought I'll just ask u.


After ending the conversation, I realised that I was ok with it. An arranged marriage thingy. I remember a time when I was dead against it. I was younger then. Maybe it's the age thing.

I've had my shares of dates with guys over the years and somehow nothing serious came out of it. So the arranged thingy may not be so bad. Who knows u know, Aunty might somehow meet one who could be the right one. But I'm not keeping fingers crossed or anything. I know about the potential hurt I could be up for with this whole experiment. Didn't I have to deal with one about a year ago? I was hurt for quite a while. The sorta hurt that makes u think it's better to be alone, that it's not worth the risk.

I guess I've closed that chapter now. I'm whole again. And ready to share...Sometimes I wish I could tell aunty to do her magic on one guy. I can even give his number. U just do ur thing...:)
But that's something I have to do...on my own...when the time is right.

Electric Air


The elections are over and what amazing results!

The results show that we are serious. We are walking the talk. Talking the walk. A change is what we want. I don’t think I’ll ever forget Sunday 9 March 2008. The air electric everywhere, so much u could feel the satisfaction hanging in the air. It was as if it was December 26th, u know when there’s hope and anticipation of a new beginning. And for once, we were responsible for this change. Like pent up tension finally released, our little world became cool and calm. Now that it’s business as usual, we (yes I’m talking on behalf of the public here) hope to find that we have chosen wisely, done the right thing. Let’s hope for the best…

Stay at home phantoms!

I must say, I'm quite excited about the elections tomorrow. I can't wait to go out there and vote! I shall vote for people I think can do the job best. (Here's hoping!) I say yes to young blood! I say aye to better policies and fair treatment. (Again something to hope for!) If the reps were responsible and effective, I wouldn't even even need to hope in the first place... I know, I know politics isn't as easy as ABC. There are a lot of factors involved, I understand. But is it so wrong to want what rightly should belong to you anyway? I think not. Vote, jangan tak vote. U could make the difference!


P/S- Phantom voters please say at home tomorrow. We are all good without u.

Shadows and silhouettes

Cloudy days sometimes cast shadows in my mind. There is friction between the zest inside and the pose outside. Like the sky, thoughts are grey. Not very warm either. Food is deemed necessary for survival, no longer for pleasure. The silver lining invisible, a hundred thoughts collide on its journey towards liberation. Words mingle and unite, break up and make up; over and over again.

Time passes. A light emerges. Then a warm velvety sensation. Words form. Thoughts take shape, tranforming into a silhouette of reason. The sky clears up and in its place, brilliant blue. Dark clouds make way for little white ones. And thoughts? Once again lucid, once again logical. I feel normal again!

Where art thou o Cupid?

As Valentine's Day comes around again (how fast does this annoying day come eh?) I am somewhat surprised (but definitely happy) that I am not experiencing any negative emotions that have tormented me in the past. No longer am I upset that I don't have someone special to celebrate it with. Nor am I sad that no one's gonna be sending me any flowers. Etc,etc,etc. I am sooooo over all that stuff, u know? O-V-E-R! Let people celebrate it with pomp and style, carry on, have fun.
Happy Valentine's Day to u!

The Complain Counter

DAY 6 - Due to unforseen amount of complaining, I've changed the bracelet to the other wrist 4 times in the past 4 days. Things are going well today. So far so good la. I will be off to bed in a few minutes so I can pretty much safely say that I've done DAY 1/OUT OF 21! Also, when I do complain, it's not about my life, but more other people's. So that's better isn't it? :P

Where's my ang pow?

With Chinese New Year just around the corner, I've been busy doing some research on what's in store for me in the year of the Rat. (Oh yes, research is THE word here). No, I am not the kinda person who hangs on to horoscopes, hoping that it will (or in some cases, not) come true. I only do my bit of research three times a year. 1. Beginning of a New Year 2. Chinese New Year 3. My birthday. I usually remember it for about hmmm, 5 minutes. 10 minutes tops. After that I naturally forget about it. So what's in store for me this year? The results are not too shabby. I like! Check this out:


The Dragon and the Rat are good buddies, and 2008 is the perfect year for Dragons to give their dreams wings. From the love of their life to that perfect job, Dragon’s should use the year to chase their desires with a fiery passion. Both romance and business are likely to prosper from a positive year and Dragon’s will find themselves surrounded with both new friends and opportunities.

THE DRAGON : (1904, '16, '28, '40, '52, '64, '76, '88, 2000) The Rat year certainly favours the Dragon, and this is your year for leadership. You'll find that things fall into place more easily this year. If you team up with a Rat, Monkey or Rooster person, you'll be helped considerably. You have the chance to expand your money this year. Be primed for any opportunity.

Sounds good innit? Do I need any more reasons to get my ass out of the chair and chase my passions?

Happy Chinese New everyone. Enjoy the holidays!!

No complaints!!!??

I was at work on Thursday when a parent gave me this purple elastic bracelet and said "I thought it might be good for u to have this." Intrigued, I read the brochure that came with the band.

A Complaint Free World (How idealistic, I thought)

Suggested Rules

1. Begin to wear the bracelet now on either wrist.

2. Every time you complain, gossip or criticize, move the bracelet to the other arm and begin again. Keep moving the bracelet from wrist-to-wrist until you keep it on the same arm for 21 consecutive days.

3. If you see someone who is wearing a purple bracelet complain, you may point out their need to switch the bracelet to the other arm. BUT if you're going to do this, you must move your bracelet first because you're complaining about their complaining!

4. Stay with it. It may take many months, but when you reach 21 days you will find that your entire life is happier, more loving, more positive and more abundant.

What? No complaining? At all? That's gonna be a hard task to master. Although I may look like an angel (oh yes, there have been rumours) I am the biggest complainer. Work lah, the stupid finger scanning clock in-clock out system, this thing called life...the weather! So I thought why not, try this out. See if I can be a non-complainer for a bit. See if it does actually improve the quality of my life.


Day 2- Result: Changed bracelet 3 times today. :P

Let's see how long this is gonna take!

Winds of Change

There's a certain feeling that is simmering inside me these past few days. Almost warning me of an overflow. Only God knows what will happen if it does!

I'm not sure what happened or how it all started. But suddenly, I got this feeling that everything's going my way. That it may take a little time, but I will get what I want. Funny thing that! I don't remember ever feeling this...settled. And hopefully this feeling never goes away.

Now more than ever, I'm determined to make my dreams come true. To get my ass out there and do,do,do! I find happiness in the smallest of things. Painting my nails for absolutely no reason. Dancing to a catchy Hindi tune in my room. Getting sms's from a friend. Watching a father and his daughter going for a walk. Rotterweilers on the run (ok, so I was a tad scared about this one too!) Amazing how these tiny, seemingly insignificant things give me this much happiness. I love it! Stay, stay stay!

Find your voice - "Say" by John Mayer



Take out of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so called problems
Better put them in quotations
Say what you need to say

Walkin like a one man army
Fightin with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you’d be better off instead
If you could only
Say what you need to say

Have no fear for giving in
Have no fear for getting older
You better know that in the end its better to say to much
Than to never to say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open
Why?
Say what you need to say

Amazing India

Just me and the Arabian Sea!




A resting place for the weary sandals.



Sunset on the beach in Small Vagator Beach Goa. Nice!



My sister and I at The Taj.



I couldn't resist the outdoor beds at the Taj Hotel in Fort Aguada...comfort and an amazing view...A perfect combination.


Even the cow loves the sea in Goa...



Sunset in Goa.

The ultimate shopping experience - Commercial Street Bangalore.



The autorickshaw and I in the streets of Chennai.



Oh for the love of horns! "Sound Horn". A typical sight on lorries in India.
