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.

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.

The ultimate standard

October 26, 2012 1 comment

What is patient?

What is kind?

What does not envy?

What does not boast?

What is not proud?

What is not rude?

What is not self-seeking?

What is not easily angered?

What keeps no record of wrongs?

What does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth?

What always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres?

What never fails?

It is love.

Peruvian delicacy – Deep fried guinea pig

October 25, 2012 6 comments

As gruesome as it sounds, it is actually very tasty.

The meat is pink and very soft.

This particular one was marinated with herbs so it has extra flavour, especially the skin.

Our tour guide said the best part is the head.

I tried it, not too bad at all.

Peruvians only eat this for celebrations but tourists can have it any time!

Pistachio

October 23, 2012 1 comment

Pistachio in Chinese is literally Happy Nut – 开心果.

Recently I met a very cheerful person.

I don’t meet many of those because I tend to enjoy deep, serious and meaningful conversations.

 

Hence I tend to enjoy friendships with those I can share heart to heart with – not just joke around.

However, this person has the most genuine smile.

With a great sense of humor that is so very attractive.

It feels great after our delightful conversations.

I sometimes even find myself smiling to myself as it seems to have rubbed off on me.

It naturally draws me to him especially when I have just left my dark hole not too long ago.

So I am very much interested and wanted to work towards privatising this pistachio.

Unfortunately, without much success.

Then it hit me – why don’t I just became a pistachio myself?

Then I wouldn’t need to rely on others to be the sunshine of my life.
