Surprise surprise!

Truth to be told, I’ve been out of the battlefield, ohhhhh I mean the war game of ❤ for quite some time now. Relationships are tough stuffs. As much as I love to deny, it’s not always a bed of roses. It takes a lot of effort and patience. Say, just like watching our plants grow! It needs the right amount of ingredients and recipe! The sunlight alone obviously isn’t enough; you need water, a tad of fertilizer, and a little bit of love! And the results, TADA it flowers!

So, this whole concept of two people liking, adoring, admiring, LOVING or whatever we like to define it needs A LOT of compromise and trust. This feeling between two people hoping to love and expecting to be loved can be very strenuous at times. We don’t know what to expect, we practically throw ourselves out there risking being hurt or trusting that person not to hurt us or hoping that person will love us back. And when it is not the case a) we can break down, tear ourselves up and blame the whole world for our misfortune or b)  HAHA..don’t fret, buck up and move on!

Magazines, books, movies and websites with a handful of “How to get/lose a guy in 10 days”, “10 signs that he’s not into you anymore”, “10 signs you are completely and totally over him” and list of do’s and don’ts are all rubbish! The fact that people are buying these ideas is unfathomable. In fact, they are the evidence of the EFFORT that one puts into a relationship, ohhhh yeah by reading those useful advises will completely fix your relationship. These given formulas and guides are theoretically proven by a bunch of experts who are having and enjoying their wonderful and perfect relationships!

So yes, there’s no way out. Human beings are complicated because we choose to be! It’s just a trial and error. Sometimes you win sometimes you lose. It’s a gamble!

Bear in mind that relationships are essential to make us whole but it does not mean that our partner is responsible for our happiness! Of course, we care and love our partner; we want to see and make them happy, we protect them and give the best we could offer. By doing so, we always tend to focus on ways and ideas to please them, and it becomes a habit. We sacrifice in order to make them happy but end up hurting or upsetting ourselves. When we realize that we are no longer happy, we want a way out! This expectation of pleasing our partner has a higher price to pay. It takes more than that to survive a relationship!

The different needs and longing that each and every one of us has can’t be fulfilled by our partners. It lies in us. We are in charge of our own happiness. Hence, do not expect our partner to think or react the way we want them to.

And personally, I think that’s the best part in a relationship! Imagine having two very different personalities and characters are attracted to each other. That’s what I call LOVE. Unconditionally. You are just you! We say what we mean and we do what we say! Just being ourselves without trying so hard to please one another. Only when we are able to love ourselves, we are capable of loving others!

PS : I miss you baby!

Fellowship and Humanity

I received this email from my daddy not long ago and I thought it’s really ” A Profound Answer” and want to share with you.

The dinner guests were sitting around the table discussing life.

One man, a CEO, decided to explain the problem with education. He argued, “What’s a kid going to learn from someone who decided his best option in life was to become a teacher?”

To stress his point he said to another guest; “You’re a teacher, Bonnie. Be honest. What do you make?”

Bonnie, who had a reputation for honesty and frankness replied, “You want to know what I make?” (She paused for a second, then began…)

“Well, I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could.

“I make kids sit through 40 minutes of class time when their parents can’t make them sit for 5 without an I Pod, Game Cube or movie rental.

“You want to know what I make?” (She paused again and looked at each and every person at the table)

“I make kids wonder.

“I make them question.

“I make them apologize and mean it.

“I make them have respect and take responsibility for their actions.

“I teach them to write and then I make them write. Keyboarding isn’t everything.

“I make them read, read, read.

“I make them show all their work in math. They use their God given brain, not the man-made calculator.

“I make my students from other countries learn everything they need to know about English while preserving their unique cultural identity.

“I make my classroom a place where all my students feel safe.

“Finally, I make them understand that if they use the gifts they were given, work hard, and follow their hearts, they can succeed in life.” (Bonnie paused one last time and then continued.)

“Then, when people try to judge me by what I make, with me knowing money isn’t everything, I can hold my head up high and pay no attention because they are ignorant.

You want to know what I make? I MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

“What do you make Mr. CEO?”

His jaw dropped, he went silent.

Voice of the Heart

Anyone who understands the meaning of life knows that things have neither beginning nor an end, and that there is, therefore, no point in worrying. Fight for what you believe in without trying to prove anything to anyone; maintain the same silent calm of someone who has had the courage to choose his own destiny.

THE NAKED AND FAMOUS from rhivanz on Vimeo.

We’re only young and naive still
We require certain skill
The mood it changes like the wind
Hard to control when it begins

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-between
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Can’t help myself but count the flaws
Claw my way out through these walls
One temporary escape
Feel it start to permeate

We lie beneath the stars at night
Our hands gripping each other tight
You keep my secrets hope to die
Promises, swear them to the sky

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-between
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

As it withers
Brittle it shakes
Can you whisper
As it crumbles and breaks
As you shiver
Count up all your mistakes
Pair of forgivers
Let go before it’s too late
Can you whisper
Can you whisper
Can you whisper
Can you whisper

The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-between
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-between
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Spring!



It’s the first breath of springtime
And a warm wind picks up the fallen blossom
And sails in circles down the street.
A lady cycles past with her hair in braids
As they’re pulling down the awning to the train station cafe

I’m alive and I’m thankful
For this time

Six o’ clock, summer afternoon
Next door’s kids are playing in the yard
I’m doing the dishes at the window and the radio’s playing ‘Superstar’
And the sun falls down on the garden next door
But two young boys are fighting, till a woman appears at the door

And the fires and the fog and the falling leaves
Under October skies
You walked me home in the cold after closing time
As the leaves rushed by

How I want to be loved
How I need to be loved
Now that I’ve found you, I’d do anything for you

In the Forest of Angels that’s where we laid you down
And I can hear whispers
When the first frost falls on the ground

You’re alive, just be thankful
For this time.

Part II : Blood Bank & Fly me Home

Dearest Sayang,

This is for you!

Well I met you at the blood bank
We were looking at the bags
Wondering if any of the colors
Matched any of the names we knew on the tags

You said see look it that’s yours
Stacked on top with your brothers
See how they resemble one anothers?
Even in their plastic little covers
And I said I know it well
That secret that you know
That you don’t know how to tell
it f–ks with your honor
And it teases your head
But you know that its good girl
Cause its running you with red.

Then the snow started falling
We were stuck out in your car
You were rubbing both my hands
Chewing on a candy bar
you said ain’t this just like the present
To be showing up like this
There’s a moon waning crescent
we started to kiss

And I said I know it well

That secret that we know
That we don’t know how to tell
I’m in love with your honor
I’m in love with your cheeks
what’s that noise up the stairs baby
Is that Christmas morning

And I know it well


PS : Thank you Sayang for your surprises! This song is our song! Simple joy – blood, driving and learning to drive!
You indeed is a gift and a surprise, I’m grateful and very happy to have you!

Break & Borneo & Coelho

These two weeks of Malaysia and Borneo have been lovely. I could never get enough of Greeneries and Food.

Lou Lou Lou… Lou Kou Kou! Ohhh… how i’ve missed Lou Sang!

Free Hugs Campaign attempt failed in Melaka. Well, let’s just say, we were disappointed.

On our way to Tanak Nabalu Homestay! We were like excited little kids back in old school days!

Green Green Green. We crossed 12 rivers and hiked our arse off to our little jungle home. All worth it!

PS: I’ve couldn’t have made it without my 6 Ringgit Kg. Adidas. Thank You, you served me well though you ate up 2 chunks of my meat!

Spot the Orang MINYAK!

Spot the POSE, oh i mean the tongue PIERCING.

Mini Kinabalu with Audri, our group leader and wonderful host.

Sunset with Queen at Laban Rata Resthouse. We hiked 6 kilometers and about 3500 meters above sea level! Literally above clouds. Bliss bliss!

Tell me despite of our sore legs and blisters, it’s worth it!

Happiest girls on EARTH!!!

Why do men love women?

Why do we love men?

if man is the sun, woman is the light of the sun.
if man is the reality, woman is the truth.
if man is the feeling, woman is the voice.
if man is the language, woman are the words.
if man is the noise, woman is the sound.
if man is the knowledge, woman is expression.
if man is the puzzle, woman is the solution.
if man is the passenger, woman is the partner.
if man is the power, woman is the strength.
if man is the journey, woman is destination.

Smile Darling

Dearest Mummy and Daddy,

Smile – sunshine is good for your teeth.

It takes seventeen muscles to smile and forty-three to frown.

All the statistics in the world can’t measure the warmth of a smile.

Today, give a stranger one of your smiles.  It might be the only sunshine he sees all day.

Sealed with love,
Daughter

Inventory of normality

1] Anything that makes us forget our true identity and our dreams and makes us only works to produce and reproduce.

2] Making rules for a war (the Geneva Convention).

3] Spending years at university and then not being able to find a job.

4] Working from nine in the morning to five in the afternoon at something that does not give us the least pleasure, so that we can retire after 30 years.

5] Retiring only to discover that we have no more energy to enjoy life, and then dying of boredom after a few years.

6] Using Botox.

7] Trying to be financially successful instead of seeking happiness.

8] Ridiculing those who seek happiness instead of money by calling them “people with no ambition”.

9] Comparing objects like cars, houses and clothes, and defining life according to these comparisons instead of really trying to find out the true reason for being alive.

10] Not talking to strangers. Saying nasty things about our neighbors.

11] Thinking that parents are always right.

12] Getting married, having children and staying together even though the love has gone, claiming that it’s for the sake of the children (who do not seem to be listening to the constant arguments).

12ª] Criticizing everybody who tries to be different.

14] Waking up with a hysterical alarm-clock at the bedside.

15] Believing absolutely everything that is printed.

16] Wearing a piece of colored cloth wrapped around the neck for no apparent reason and known by the pompous name “necktie”.

17] Never asking direct questions, even though the other person understands what you want to know.

18] Keeping a smile on your face when you really want to cry. And feeling sorry for those who show their own feelings.

19] Thinking that art is worth a fortune, or else that it is worth absolutely nothing.

20] Always despising what was easily gained, because the “necessary sacrifice” – and therefore also the required qualities – are missing.

21] Following fashion, even though it all looks ridiculous and uncomfortable.

22] Being convinced that all the famous people have tons of money saved up.

23] Investing a lot in exterior beauty and paying little attention to interior beauty.

24] Using all possible means to show that even though you are a normal person, you are infinitely superior to other human beings.

25] In any kind of public transport, never looking straight into the eyes of the other passengers, as this may be taken for attempting to seduce them.

26] When you enter an elevator, looking straight at the door and pretending you are the only person inside, however crowded it may be.

27] Never laughing out loud in a restaurant, no matter how funny the story is.

28] In the Northern hemisphere, always wearing the clothes that match the season of the year: short sleeves in springtime (however cold it may be) and a woolen jacket in the fall (no matter how warm it is).

29] In the Southern hemisphere, decorating the Christmas tree with cotton wool, even though winter has nothing to do with the birth of Christ.

30] As you grow older, thinking you are the wisest man in the world, even though not always do you have enough life experience to know what is wrong.

31] Going to a charity event and thinking that in this way you have collaborated enough to put an end to all the social inequalities in the world.

32] Eating three times a day, even if you’re not hungry.

33] Believing that the others are always better at everything: they are better-looking, more resourceful, richer and more intelligent. Since it’s very risky to venture beyond your own limits, it’s better to do nothing.

34] Using the car as a way to feel powerful and in control of the world.

35] Using foul language in traffic.

36] Thinking that everything your child does wrong is the fault of the company he or she is keeping.

37] Marrying the first person who offers you a position in society. Love can wait.

38] Always saying “I tried”, even though you haven’t tried at all.

39] Putting off doing the most interesting things in life until you no longer have the strength to do them.

40] Avoiding depression with massive daily doses of television programs.

41] Believing that it is possible to be sure of everything you have won.

42] Thinking that women don’t like football and that men don’t like interior decoration.

43] Blaming the government for everything bad that happens.

44] Being convinced that being a good, decent and respectful person means that the others will find you weak, vulnerable and easy to manipulate.

45] Being convinced that aggressiveness and discourtesy in treating others are signs of a powerful personality.

46] Being afraid of fibrocopy (men) and childbirth (women).

47] And finally, thinking that your religion is the sole proprietor of the absolute truth, the most important, the best, and that the other human beings in this immense planet who believe in any other manifestation of God are condemned to the fires of hell.

.

.

.

48] Feeling like a generous king while giving 20€ to a charity, but feeling penniless when having the same amount to spend at the mall.

49] Being afraid of loneliness and you settle down because you think there is no one better out there for you and not believing in true love

50] Thinking that cheating is so common you have no choice but to condone it.

In The Winner Stands Alone

By Paulo Coelho

Amazing isn’t it?

First when I went through the list, deep inside I was ticking my imaginary check-list.

Bloody hell, those words are so accurately articulated and what more can I say?

Bazinga!

Of course we all know that these things are happening and they are not wrong, just that they are all bloody norms as proposed.

Normality that we all blindly forge and compel to follow, the road that we all believe it’s righteous because everybody is doing it.

We are afraid of doing things out of the protocol because it’s UNSAFE and ABNORMAL not to follow the mass.

What about some more additional norms to top the list?

PS: It’s always uplifting to discover and develop a consciousness both for the insight and outlook of our conditions – our desires on material possessions and achievements are mainly a manifestation of our ambitious nature. Simplicity is no longer our normality. And obviously, by asking why infinitely alone won’t not lead me to the answers.
Contentment comes from inside and by loving who we are and just the way we are.
With a state of consciousness, I believe inner peace can be contained.

Heart

A young man was standing in the middle of the town proclaiming that he had the most beautiful heart in the whole valley. A large crowd gathered and they all admired his heart for it was perfect. There was not a mark or a flaw in it.

But an old man appeared at the front of the crowd and said,
“Your heart is not nearly as beautiful as mine.”

The crowd and the young man looked at the old man’s heart. It was beating strongly but full of scars. It had places where pieces had been removed and other pieces put in … but they didn’t fit quite right and there were several jagged edges. The young man looked at the old man’s heart and laughed.
“You must be joking,” he said. “Compare your heart with mine … mine is perfect and yours is a mess of scars and tears.”

“Yes,” said the old man, “Yours is perfect looking … but I would never trade with you. You see, every scar represents a person to whom I have given my love….. I tear out a piece of my heart and give it to them … and often they give me a piece of their heart which fits into the empty place in my heart but because the pieces aren’t exact, I have some rough edges.
” Sometimes I have given pieces of my heart away … and the other person hasn’t returned a piece of his heart to me. These are the empty gouges … giving love is taking a chance. Although these gouges are painful, they stay open, reminding me of the love I have for these people too … and I hope someday they may return and fill the space I have waiting. So now do you see what true beauty is?”

The young man stood silently with tears running down his cheeks. He walked up to the old man, reached into his perfect young and beautiful heart, and ripped a piece out. He offered it to the old man.
The old man took his offering, placed it in his heart and then took a piece from his old scarred heart and placed it in the wound in the young man’s heart.
It fit …. but not perfectly, as there were some jagged edges.
The young man looked at his heart, not perfect anymore but more beautiful than ever, since lovefrom the old man’s heart flowed into his.

Danes and Dalai

Welcome to the happiest nation on Earth : Denmark!

No kidding, it’s official. According to a global survey by the World Database of Happiness, the Danes are the most contented folk on earth.

Well, money does buy happiness.

Now i wonder, why Dalai Lama wants to go Denmark?

Today has been exceptionally weird.

I mean it.

Everyone has been exceptionally and crazily nice to me.

Firstly, we had lunch at this Chinese Restaurant we normally go to and Aunty Rabbit the waitress; well her nickname and obviously she got that because she wasn’t very kind to us whenever we were there and she look like one.

Something seems very wrong today that she kept praising me and throwing me with a lot of flattery words. The point is she highlighted something that was bothering me for quite some time on the table today. What an ease I thought. Finally someone stood up for me, to help me deliver something which was meant to be said and clarified!

And to top it off, she genuinely gave me 4 pieces of ‘Loh Bak Kou’ Dim Sum as takeaway, well secretly. What a surprise! Haha. Thinking back, I should’ve hugged her before I left.

And and and…

My blog here actually has reader!

little miss sunshine says:

ill bookmark what u said..

See in everyday’s life, people are so afraid of giving out love because we are scared of not getting it back or in most cases we fear that we might get hurt or feel rejected.

We are worried and hesitate to love or express ourselves fearing that other people might not even appreciate or he or she might take us for granted.

Hence we oppress our feelings or display ourselves superiorly in front of others. To tell people, I have everything under control and everyone loves me because of what I HAVE.

The biggest dilemma here is we are constantly trying very HARD to get people to love us – we aim to impress people with what we HAVE, be it with material possessions, money, skills or talent.

We simply WANT people to love us.

BUT

We can’t obtain love if we don’t give love in the first place. People love us not because of our richness, cleverness or beauty. People love us because of who we are as a person – a person who can offer love unconditionally – a beautiful soul, a loving mind.

It’s wrong to say that we have to earn our love. We don’t deserve love. Nothing comes free.

The fact is, love is free. Freedom is free. Time is free.

If only we could take a leap of faith, I believe love will come knocking on our doors.

LOVE and BE LOVED. It starts from US.

This excerpt from Times which pretty much summarizes 2010 around the world brings me back to a lot of memories. Embrace the last moment of 2010 and let’s all together hope for a better and brighter 2011.

Mother Nature was uncommonly unkind this year. Haiti’s earthquake left 230,000 dead, and monsoons left one-fifth of Pakistan underwater. An Antarctic collision between an iceberg and a glacier gouged out a chunk of sea ice the size of Luxembourg, an effusive Icelandic volcano stranded travelers across Europe, and the winter was so warm that Canadians couldn’t even make ice for their Olympics. Mankind, meanwhile, seemed uncommonly hapless: BP couldn’t plug the leak, lawmakers couldn’t balance a checkbook, and an octopus made more accurate predictions than most economists did. Yet memory — that deft makeup artist — may brighten the year in hindsight. A certain seriousness has set in, as citizens served notice to their leaders that the rules have changed, the stakes have risen. There was a reason the world stopped to watch and wonder as 33 trapped miners returned one by one from their near grave: we wanted to celebrate grace under pressure, discipline in the face of despair. And not settle, in ourselves, for anything less.


PS: I wanna marry a soul with a mixture of John Lennon, Ian Wright, Dalai Lama, Bob Marley, and Sheldon Copper. Will you marry me?


Poxied

Here’s my penny of thought.

Now that I’m in 3rd year of University, I’m starting to get a bigger picture of everything – speaking of my field of interest, how I perceive my future and ideal job and etc. Well, theoretically I’m supposed to be all bucked up and equipped with know-how and all ready to march into the world and shine!

The fact that it is NOT doesn’t seem to bother me. In fact, that doesn’t sound so right.

It is clearly because I’m not ready. I’m not a superwoman or rather have an IQ of over 180. Look at the pace of our society – the chase, the faster, the greater, the bigger, the smarter, and the richer, more, more and more – a superlative civilization.

And truth to be told, I despise the inventor of the Intelligence-Quotient, unremarkably a German guy.

Is humankind purely base on grading?

Do we need to put a tag on everything to prove our ability and insecurity?

It is all about proving to other people and satisfying our own needs in order to assure them and ourselves what we’ve really got in us?

Who are you to tell me I’m not as bright as my neighbor? Who are you to forfeit and judge my credibility? By flashing me the 3 digits of an IQ Test which is carried out by human itself tells me where I stand among the sea of people?

So what’s there to measure next besides everything?

My point is that one’s well-being is directly correlated to emotions and feelings.

I’m not sure if I’m being exposed far too long in a developed and disciplined society, in a culture of a high living standard where people compete and work their ass off to make their lives lazier. You know, like ha-ha loser, I could afford a dish washer, I save time, maintain my flawless hands and pay more bills on water and electricity.

Think again about the whole point of wanting to make our lives more comfortable. We end up giving up more precious things while chasing the comfort zone. We create problems for ourselves and fall into believing that by having such things, life could be better. And we complain at the end of the month that the bank account is empty. Misery starts and stress mounting.

PS : I don’t know where is this heading. But I just reread what I’ve written, and I realized that probably the only reason why is it ever written is because I’m currently intoxicated. I’m under a lot of doping substances and its side effects are enough to make me bald. So pardon me!

Let’s Hug the World

6 months ago, before my flight to India was confirmed, I had so much in my head – choosing the right destination to explore, the organization to work with, the field of voluntary, how can I serve and etc, it was really a lot of work. At the end, I convinced myself not to worry as I believe that things would work out eventually as long as I have the right attitude and passionate about it. I bore in mind that it is me who’d not only make this meaningful and memorable to me but also hoping to the people around me. It’s all about spreading the positive energy, fun, laughter and love!

So I decided to Hug the World!

No words, just actions! With the right intention, spirit and most importantly love, nothing can be more rewarding than wanting to hug and be hugged!

Here is an initial email we sent to a fellow Hugger when we were Ganeshpuri.

Dear Vinit and Itida,

Hello my name is Michelle, a Malaysian student currently studying in Germany.

In this summer break, I’m volunteering and travelling around India. One of my mission is to embark on a Hugathon.
I found your contact on a freehugscampaign forum. I’d like to run a campaign with 2 of my friends. We are all volunteers from different parts of the world – Australia and England.

Are you all interested for another campaign?

Cheers and hit us back!

Thank you,
Michelle

And Wala!

Hey Michelle!

All on for it. I would love to do it with you guys. It would be great to have you guys here and spread happiness and love.

We can do the campaign in the city of Mumbai when you guys come down as this is the town where it has been a success.

Let me know your plan.

Hugs
Vinit mehta

PS : here are a few of my favourite snap shots. sadly, Andy couldn’t join us as he was ill.

Dear Sascha,

Happy Merry Jolly 25th Birthday, you ol’ kiddo!

May your smoking hot desires come true and Olga will roll up in a jiffy!

Time flashes. Though all of us will be going our separate ways soon but nothing changes! You are one of a kind and I thank you for all the laughter and joy you’ve brought us.

We love you Sascha Bang Deutsch!

PS : Remembering MJ

Smile

I think ever since Jonathan’s departure, I’ve been loving and living my LIFE beyond what I could offer. I hunt for any opportunity available to pursue on my best interest in what I could possibly materialize.

I’m afraid that one day, I’d be too weak or too ill to be involved in all these burning passions and wild dreams I have in mind. I know that one day, I’d be looking back in my life (granted I’d live up to the moment) and have this wishful thinking on what could-haves.

I strive to take each day to better myself and not to hurt and upset anyone by my words and actions.

Needless to say, it is an overstatement and if I’d be able to achieve that not- anyone level, literally I’d be the most angelic being who have ever lived. No but ideally I’d and in fact everyone would want to develop into that level.

But I do strongly believe that when I care and love for that anyone, I’ll try in my best ability to bring them happiness and you know the latter.

………………………

So today, I was introduced to a new friend aka TMD

He began to ask me questions like these:

Are you unable to open your mouth wide?
.
.
Is there a click when you move your lower jaw?
.
.
Do you often clench your teeth during the day?

And he probed further…

Does it hurt when you open your mouth wide?
.
.
Does it hurt when you chew?
.
.
Do you grind your teeth at night?
.
.
Do you have pain in the cheeks and temples?

After answering to his questions, Ray joined us.
Instantly, he took a picture inside of me.

By the time Splint rolled up, I’ve got to admit, I was a little overwhelmed.

Of all faces, TMD impressed me the most as I later figured out that he owns the sexiest name of all, which is Temporomandibular Disorder.

However, my favorite is Splint because he is hot. Don’t believe?


Seems like juggling work and studies, friends and family, sports and leisure, planning and organizing my India trip, and recently exams, presentations, marathon and excursions are taking its toll on me.

one shot

You see, it’s really hard to make everyone happy. Of course when people around me are happy, I feel tenfold happier than them. That’s the ultimate reason I want to please everyone, well I least I’m constantly trying or learning to. Naturally, things don’t work that way. The more you try, sometimes, the harder it hits you. In fact, you can’t just please everyone.

All of us have our own set of rules and principles that we tend to follow. We lean on these little perfect imaginary systems we have in mind that reflect each and every one of our characters and personalities. Needless to say, that makes up our fair share of diversity in mankind. Because of our ability to adapt and rationalize enable us to find our feet in all situations and with all walks of life.

It’s a cycle that never stops. We get carried away with the people we feel most comfortable with. They build us up encouragingly and leave traces that will eventually open doors of opportunities that we’d probably not have done it by ourselves. I’m saying simple great souls who have helped an old granny crossing the street or even a random conservation with a stranger who has touched you with his or her warm smile and voice. Someone who you think you matters to them, someone who will try unfailingly to put a smile on your face, someone whose action speaks louder than words, someone who accepts you the way you are and who you are.

I have to admit that I can do better than this.

Granted, the fear of smelling my very own vulnerability has not developed itself.

I want so badly you to know!

There are three things will last forever – faith, hope and love – and the greatest of these is LOVE.

1 Corinthians 13:13

Dear Sayang,

I’m missing you and the frequent trips made down to Aachen. You were struggling and I was sore afraid. Exactly 9 months you have left me..

Love is Happiness which doesn’t come from money or fame or power. Happiness comes from good friends and family, and from the quiet nobility of leading a good life.

Baby thanks for reminding me to be happy, because I deserve to be. And you made me believe that…

PS : You were such a gift that I once thought I could have never deserved to have someone like you.You were such a beautiful soul and we bonded mutually there and then. Thinking back, part of me was thankful that we didn’t go through the ecstasy of the courtship. Probably it was really meant to be in this way.
