The Unsuspecting 

We had a wonderful dinner in a restaurant in Paris last night. Except it took 4.5 hours, and I was told that was normal. Great meal, except that I was half asleep and edgily squirming in my seat towards the end of it.  Too much alcohol, too much gluten, too much dairy, too much oysters,…

Temperance

Week01. I see the Temperance card starting to appear. And I’m glad it did – the constant reminder to exercise her energies, helping me to surf through it and maintain my inner peace.  Each time the word “temperance” appear, I hear the insight and understand what to take and what to throw. IAnd it is…

Tender my goodbye

Tendering my goodbye~ Today is a day I reaffirmed my three-year-old decision to step out of the industry / profession in my home country. A comment affected me quite abit post-presentation. I was not exactly shocked, but I am very heavily disappointed. Honestly, we had thought it was a naive belief or way of working,…

Soft heart versus Weak heart

Finally reached the close of the day. As I lay huddled in my blanket, I suddenly felt like crying.  Today was a really tough day. Started with someone messaging me about a mistake (without saying he made a mistake), and wanted to talk to me. I was already jumping out of bed to catch up…

Lives from Past

Imagine feeling troubled by knowing and being with someone whom you just spend time with without talking, yet feeling the connection and hence needless to speak a word. Imagine only realising years and decades later that it was a past life of nearly eighty years together, without speaking to each other.  Imagine. Just imagine, it…

Whimsical Amusement

I had the oddest “argument” last night. Till now, I am not sure if I am peeved or amused. Was absolutely knackered from work last night, but the little episode sort of broke that tiredness~ A good analogy would be: OCD artist carefully and methodically painting details, leaned back to admire her painstaking work, and…

Computing class!

My mom is going for computer class tomorrow! I am so impressed. All her life, she has never used one, not even the iPad to get to Youtube for Oliver. She has amazingly never really used a remote control before either! Her exerting control remotely is by “hey, channel 8 please” or “hey, channel U…

The Audacity

So. I raised my voice at my ancestors of 4 generations ago. I cried, and raved, in exasperation of the deadlock we were caught in. A deadlock that I still see in my dad’s generation, my granddad’s generation, and of course my generation too. Not so sure about the next generation yet. I just burst into tears and angry words.

A rose by any other name

Will still smell as sweet. Isn’t this a very known term? Or do I store too much peripheral information in and around me? So I re-started my yoga lessons again. With a small little baggage on my shoulder, I continue on my journey again. What a difference spiritual work makes! Just two months away on the ground,…

Springgles~

I squiggled a giggle when someone texted me happy birthday! It’s always fun to receive old school communication – who uses SMS nowadays? We do! At one point this decade, we even ICQ-ed each other, with that signature Uh-Oh! and green spinning petals. We used to Trillian each other too! Do people still use that?…

Little bit of tech

So I went to a tech conference today, you can almost consider it a gatecrash. I have no idea what it this conference about, but the session I  attended was pretty interesting. I have been reading about blockchain, but have nearly really figured whether I know what is going on. But it still falls under…

Rants always help

It’s all clear now. After the exasperated post earlier, which sent steam fleeing, I am now vividly seeing the purpose behind.
