Words create contents in my mind and take flight in the most magical way. The charming man plays with words as beautifully as he plays guitar. A poet in his blood, a romantic in his heart, he writes like a beautiful piece of music being played ingeniously.
It’s hard to have a high self-esteem when we were always criticised and punished during the formative years. I would never dream of even trying to reach for the cloud, let alone the stars. Now? I feel that even the skies is not a limit, the only limit is myself.

So, maybe Viking is a strong character, I don’t really know what Vikings were capable of, but I know they fight hard and they fight till the end. Fight by all means, but choose your fight wisely.

When we accept that the change in chemistry is actually a good thing, and acknowledge that such change is only because two people care so much about each other; we will not see difference as difference, but as interestingness; like it has always been. Un-break the broken nature, embrace the wisdom of broadening the perception, and looking at the larger picture, then, love abounds!
We get into the merry moods during this time of the year, don’t we? The decorative lighting, the jolly music playing in the malls, and the cookies baking! What do you say, that we maximize the merry moods? During this time of the year, we complain about the rush to get everything ready for the joyous holiday; for some of…
I lived in Boon Lay since birth, till we moved to a new estate slightly over a decade ago. That was when Singapore was so young and developing. Residents moved from the Kampong to high-rise buildings which we call ‘Flats’, aka apartments.
