Not meant to be

February 10, 2014 Leave a comment
Sitting on the sofa quiet as a mouse
Counting the hours you have floated about
Scared to wake or draw close to you
As it might not be the appropriate cue
Standing guard in case you need me
But you seem content so just let it be
You said thank you a hundred times
Inside I say I love you without sounding a chime
God sent me only to be a guardian angel
We were never meant to be lovers as it didn’t fit the puzzle

The boyfriend that my friends like

December 9, 2013 Leave a comment

Some people spend their whole lives trying to please others and seek their approval – our boss, our family and friends. That is exactly what I have been doing. The reason that I’m in this profession is because it makes my parents proud. We all have the need to get other’s approval but I took it one step further. I even look for a guy who my friends will like too.

– Tall
– Handsome
– Smart
– Funny
– Successful
– Showers me with attention
and the list goes on and on.

It was just the shell, I responded to what they seemingly have to offer. But it has proven to be shallow. It lacks the understanding that I crave from a partner. The non ending conversations that you would rather lose sleep for. The heated topical debates because it is ok to have different opinions. The desire to put their needs before yours. The concern because you care so much it hurts.

So I threw away my checklist and now I’m ready to really get to know the person as they are without all the superficial glam.
To look to the core, where I can find the most precious thing in the world – kindess.

Blind Date @Sketch, Mayfair

December 6, 2013 Leave a comment

With modern technology enabling finding true love through virtual space with just a lift of a finger, which I had heard so much about, I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself the day after I landed back in singlehood.
So you pick a decent looking guy who doesn’t have a topless photo of himself as his profile pic. I try to make sure he has a job that requires an average IQ and someone who has less than 50% chance of being a serial killer or rapist.
Then you put on a brave made up face in a central location on a weekd night, just for a casual drink or coffee so you can run like an Olympian sprinter when he turns out to be a complete egg.
My first exciting adventure takes me to Sketch bar which friends have told me about regarding their imfamous egg shaped bathrooms. When I got there I realised I had walked past this place a dozen times without even knowing it’s the place where you can relieve yourself in a oval shaped white box.
The drinks are expensive as expected with its location. Their deco is nice enough in the bar, a bit too dark but it made my date look quite handsome. The music loud enough to make you have to lead right in to your date’s ears, lucky I have pretty attractive ears.
After a couple of drinks, time to move on indicating it’s going decent enough to spend another hour across each other at a dinner table. The restaurant was very busy so we went to another place.
Upon exit, we had to visit the infamous white shaped things up the stairs. But we were stopped mid way and that apparently there are male and female divisions – not unisex. So much for checking out the bathroom together, and the rest is history.

Forget You Not

November 25, 2013 Leave a comment

You taught me how to give and not just take
You and I wanted to meet half way
I gave you my heart because you were worthy
But you kept it in a box and returned it to me
Now we say farewell and all the best
Because we definitely deserve the best
To find happiness and love without rest
Every moment I miss you much
I will keep the memories in our album untouched

Recent hobby

This is what I have been doing in the last few months hence neglecting this blog a little.

View from the top

When I take a deep breath on top of a mountain I’ve just climbed, I feel I have been rewarded for all my efforts.

When I look around the magnificent views around me, I feel this world is so harmonious and trouble-free.

When I admire the wonderful works of the creator, I feel so tiny and insignificant on this enormous piece of land.

When I peek at the aerial view of the city I’m landing in or leaving from, it brings overflowing emotions running down my face.
