Life, Death, & Wonders

Whenever I see elderly people walking alone, I wonder if they have someone.
Whenever I heard about murders, I wonder who would do that.
Whenever I heard about wars, I wonder when it will end.
Whenever I heard about gossips, I wonder why don't the gossipers mind their own business.
Whenever I heard about abuses, I wonder what made the abusers so cruel.
Whenever....whenever....a list that never ends.

I have this unbearable compassion for people.
I told myself, if I am rich and powerful, I will make things right.
It was a moment of lie, a moment that I wish will last longer.
Because things will never be right.
For a little while? yes. And then reality kicks in.

I am turning 21 in four more months.
I have questions. unanswered questions.
Everyone has a moment of weakness, doubts.
Wondering what life is all about.
Wondering how inhumane we can be.
Wondering why life is so fragile.
Wondering...wondering....a list that never ends.

The only hope I can always cling to is Jesus.
The God who loves us unconditionally.

Adios !!

I was so looking forward to a new life, and who knows,
I'm feeling so bitter about it.
or should I say 'Bitter-Sweet'.
tomorrow, 12pm, is the start of a new path. what's in front of me, I don't know. 
But am I determine to be the best? you bet I am.
leaving behind the family whom I love, 
friends who I secretly missed (yes i do not like to show my emotion),
missing out on the awesome Chinese festivals, and the food! ahhh the food,
all for the ultimate reason, A Better Future!

Well, it's time to bid farewell.
to those who I offended, I'm here to say sorry, sincerely.

having a mix feelings is 'no good', I don't like how it feels.

The Last of Many

Next week. that is all that I could think of.
Sometimes it's still a bit surreal when I think about it. - It's Coming True!

Well, before I make my way out of the hole I've been in, since my college year in Disted (best year anyone could've had), I had to meet up with certain people. I'll let the pictures speak for itself

warning- pictures ahead
 met up with Amy in Penang and took a bus to Taiping

cousin's shop.
funny small talks and eating

Visited uncle Beng's new house.
teanne is inseparable with the mother!!

all cramped in a small room.
 thats how my cousins sleeps. hah!
Tiramisu In Making! 

tadahhh! well, you'll have to wait for it to settle in the fridge before its edible.
first manual car I drove in 3 years! surprisingly I still remember. although the engine died on me 3 times trying to reverse. Don't blame me, cars everywhere, I panic! scare the hell out of my cousin. lol

supper again!

Reached home at 1.36 A.M.

the following words are descriptively vivid
Darkness was all around, not a single light, not even the street lights. Yes, once again the TNB had failed us. This is the third time around this week alone. Looking side to side, wanting to see some activities, yet there was none. Settled down in less than 30 minutes (unpack & bathe), hoping for the electricity to run again, disappointment was all I got.

I gazed out the window and it was pitch-black, as if the darkness gazes back. It had been a blurry night. The moon was caught in the clouds, making it pale white. The sound of water tricking, the almost eerie howling of dogs, leaves rustling on the trees outside, and the wind encompassing everything with it. Making it a still night, almost ominous. 
End of description

I wrote exactly what I saw and heard, not exaggerating. Just to add to the effect and give you a taste of it. haha!
anyway, since there was nothing I could do, I.....

yeap, I read. It kept the night interesting

what made it more memorable was my besty, Choco, accompanied me through the cooling yet 'Itchy' night. have a look
always giving the 'pity-me' look
ah, it work wonders for her.

 when things are topsy-turvy, don't stand and sulk, 
be wise and make something out of it.

The Magic Ends Tonight

Been reading the book since the first one came out, and until the last book. Big fan of the movies as well. No doubt the last movie is gonna be epic. So desperate to watch it right now, guess what, I am gonna, in 8 hours time.

midnight movie + Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows: part 2 = awesome to the max

I Grew Up

This blog has been deserted again and again, decided to revitalized it once again !
Btw, if you noticed, I changed the blog title, it use to be "Pardon My Past". The new title says it all, for I have issues and questions that implies/acts both the truth and falsity upon itself.

Ah yes, I'm supposed to update you. Went to a friend's farewell party few days back, in the middle of the conversation, she looked at me and say, "look at us, can you believe we are 20 years old now?" how things had changed since way back then. For starter.....

Don't I look dashing! LOL

and in a few weeks time, I'm gonna be all alone in a whole new world, with new opportunities await, new people to meet, and new places to go. Looking forward for that journey to kick off, at the same time I don't wanna leave. How I am gonna missed out seeing my niece walking and running, parents growing older by the day, how Bersih 2.0 gonna be a huge revolution - I hope, and above all that, Malaysian food ! (it turned me into that fat small boy)

By all means, I will cease this moment like there's no tomorrow. spend quality time with friends who appreciate me, not gonna squander it on those who don't, time's too short, you know it.

Note:  Live in the moment before it passes you
