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.

Travel is my drug

April 30, 2013 1 comment

Sometimes destination is the focus, like going to Peru felt like a mini pilgrimage for me.

Sometimes people is the key, like how you can still have an amazing time even tho you are stuck indoors the whole weekend because it’s raining cats and dogs.

Several years ago, I was travelling twice a month and ticking off the countries off my map. Nowadays, friends are dropping their jaws when they hear that my next trip is not until June *shock horror*.

Travel is still my drug, I’m just taking it in different doses.

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.
