I was in Secret Recipe (a branded cakehouse) today with Worm Worm for my little tea and I saw a group of golden age ladies at the corner ordering meals. My eyes rested on that sight. It made me recalled of my friend's blog a few weeks ago. She posted an entry that lingers still some sadness and nostalgic in me. She was telling the readers that her grandmother's best friend who is also her neighbour just passed away. She questioned how does it feel like to be in her grandma's shoes to see friends ... one by one... leaving this world. What would it be like to see her own grandma leaving this world especially the things she has done for the church choir and the presence of her in her own grandchildren's heart. What does it feel like to be old in the first place?
As I walked out of the restaurant, I pondered if I ever could live as long as the old ladies at the corner and to enjoy my golden time with my friends. How does it feel like? I wonder.

Today's meeting is great. And somehow it managed to trigger the most important thing I have to remember in my whole life. It is RM 86400. That is equivalent to the amount of seconds we have everyday. And that is also the amount of money we could have if we spend it properly. The manager was telling us to not waste a single second and ask us to evaluate if we have achieve any achievements we dream of so far. And somehow I realised I totally forgotten about my own evalution. In 4 days time, it's my friend's death anniversary. And I totally forgotten about it. Seriously. That is the day I have to evaluate myself in the diary as I have promised myself to do so on that date. Am I still nowhere or somewhere? I will need to jot that down...
Speaking of which, I guess I can work on my twirl twirl twirl poem somehow.
So are you guys nowhere or somewhere now? I hope it's the latter.

Mum was telling me the staff of my apartment management were telling her that there are some apartment residents here have python, mongoose and some other weird animals as pets. The only thing I don't know where and who. My hair stands when I heard 'python'. Someone in the apartment here... is having a python as a pet. And the guy who owns the mongoose has to hug his pet while having meals.
Hmm... anyone wants roasted pet for meals?

Ow. I look back at my wishlist on the left and you guys might be wondering the wishlist looks simple... and nothing ... Right. Actually I have many more dreams but I didn't list them down; they have been etched in my heart for years already actually. And somehow I'm kinda sick of listening to people snickering at my wishlist. I remembered who and when. I may be forgiving but I never forget. I think Virgo people are very revengeful, right?
Another one to cross out on the wishlist is professional vocal training. I'm going to attend my first vocal lesson this Friday. Woohoo~ By the way, I have been playing pennywhistle/ tinwhistle and my recorder which I kept since primary school. And I really miss playing my violin.
Sharing is Caring
Sunday, July 6, 2008
I was in a meeting last week and one of the managers was telling us that "the more we share the more we get." Surprising. Because sometimes our own relatives don't even share stuff with us, and we are here talking about strangers sharing stuff? That's awesome. Isn't it great if the world is without strangers??
Together we spread our wings...

I have been having meals with some friends over the past few days and weeks and these meetings really brightened me up other than having free meals (not all was free since I also paid but majority is). I was elated to finally meet friends that share a similar brainwave as me even though I know I'm a mercurial person in terms of subjects. I was happy to be finally told "It's ok not to be yourself." Before I met this friend of mine, I was kinda doing some evaluation of myself. I was repeatedly told by Worm worm that I do not have a focus... and no focus ... means... the process of me being a millionaire will be delayed or something like that?? It's now fuzzy to recall what he said but basically he always told me that: "Meow! That's because you got no focus!" is all printed in my mind. Whenever I listen to someone telling me to concentrate on one thing especially relating to the things that I like to do, the things I want to try to explore, I really feel being put in the cage. It's like you telling a kid it is extremely wrong to colour the clouds red, prisoning the kids creativity and freedom. And don't you, some of you I know, dare to tell me off "I didn't say that" that's because you were brainwashed to be like the 'others.' When someone with a total different characteristic and personality not found in your database, you label it as 'not found' which can be translated to weird in normal human dictionary. Have you ever been told that you don't deserve to have she/he as your partner because she/he is not pretty handsome? That's the feeling I'm trying to explain. The anguishness.
The friend who told me to be myself, Hipopo, also told me that having good friends that would be there for you no matter what is much more important than the goal of being rich and success on the fast track. That's because friends often benefit friends. If they have anything good... they will also share with their friends. This makes sense because if not .. how do politicians have cronies?!!
I did a lot of thinking and observation and I'm so glad to be back to myself!
From having meals with these friends... they shared exciting news and I think I could be part of them if I just ask my friends! And for the first time I feel "Hey I'm closer to my dreams!" When I look at my wishlist for 2008 on the left bar... I feel I'm going to cross them all faster than I anticipated!!
Like what Nichiren Daishonin said "Like a fly sticking to the horse's tail, it will take you much farther than the fly can fly." I guess that's what Hipopo was talking about.
So here I am taking the opportunity to say THANK YOU to all my friends. THANK YOU FOR BEING MY FRIEND!
