Life and its meandering journey is surprising and sometimes with enlightening comes the wistfulness of “why didn’t I realise it earlier”.
Final sequel to the trilogy (or so I hope). The most important reason for discovering if you carry the thalassemia trait is this: If two people who each carry the same form of thalassemia trait have a child, there is a 25% chance that this child will be born with a severe form of thalassemia….
Another curious day/night. I woke up with blurry, puffy eyes, and for no reason at all, I cried all morning, so I assumed I must have cried through the night without knowing (what, why). It was not any better that the daily prompt took me to such a touching turn, which was like yanking a…
Daily prompt is being very educational once again. I googled Wonder and saw that there’s a movie, and then ended up buying the book. I will take a while to read, and have a feeling it is going to be a teary-eyed experience, just judging from the author’s interview here. Sounds like a lot on kindness…
Branching Streams Flow in the Darkness was the first Zen book I owned. It was written by Shunryu Suzuki, the guy who brought Zen teachings into the US.
You know how sometimes we feel suffocated by certain people or suffocated after certain events? You know how we call some people and some environments toxic?
Took some timeout to play around with perspectives today, and it matches the saying “nature abhors a vacuum” perfectly.
With blinkered eyes, it is easy for many things to be out of this world of ours.
Dimmy-me nodded off during the warmup kriyas and it felt like *lights out* for my consciousness which went off to some still quiet space for a break.
My self-centredness took over, and what stood out in my gallery of photos was my face in a crowd of people I do not know!
The best present is your presence! Thank you for being around ❤ in the shivering cold, in the sweltering sun, in state of confusion, in state of exhaustion, in state of bliss.
This is my family! Three generations, and we gather at this scale twice a year. It is no surprise that we are unable to recognise one another (for some).
Oliver always looks very befitting in a Totoro costume. Maybe it is the big white patch that matches the baby tummy perfectly, and it is a “cannot-miss” target for tickling him, especially after his meal.
8 years later, I am still doing the same pose at the same place, with the same bunch of people. Some things don’t change.
Memories of this place was of very sweet nothingness – it was helluva good respite during the exhausting one month backpacking.
My favourite creatures are the giraffes. For some reason I cannot remember, I have always called them tall blondes.
It is never too early to take the first step, neither is it ever too late. But to capture the best timing, know yourself, plan your time.
My favourite lesson of 2017 is to “never say never”.
True north versus moral compass.
The move back to Singapore was a dramatic affair. Considering that I ran away “from home”, it was an amazing feat we pulled off.
Another weekend passed. Not a drop of juice written on the past life love story. I made several attempts, but body refused to budge. I guess Soul still has not gotten over it. 😦
Do you know that a group of magpies is called Parliament? We learn something new everyday!
The only “thing” one should be loyal to is the God-spark in each and everyone of us.
