6/6 life

Image
It was not a bucket list but a to do list for lets say 7 years ago ~ Something which i avoided for years ~ Ever since i watch the 'final destination', i always had this impression of  being left on the lasik op table and not knowing what to do ~
(we had to have a specs selfie at our workplace first)


Finally on the 11th May, pluck up my courage with my twinny and go ahead for it! We had this plan out few months before.  I never had problem with any infections of my eye because i took really care of my lens (i cleanse them before and after daily) ~ But then yes, its a bothersome to always got to ask friends to help to buy contact lens from thailand ~ (im using Maxim colour lens which is cheaper in thailand)
Another is travelling ~ Yes, i travel often and its really troublesome to count my daily lens usage for my trip and  the bottle of solution to bring on. 
People wonder why i dont go to SNEC since i'm a singhealth staff ~ But then the waiting time and the op usually wouldn't be the s…

The City that Connects ~

Image
Amsterdam, as far as i know it for its flat landscape of canals,  tulips fields, windmills and cycling routes.
But well, then i realise that there has been a lot that has been said and written about Amsterdam so its time to experience it myself.
Stepping into the most liberal city in the world where no one ever say no,  from weed to sex, there is nothing that Amsterdam doesn't offer. It is not exceptional for a person unacquainted to Amsterdam to be a bit concerned about the safety and security considering it is the famous sex and drugs capital. Surprising, it turns out to be one of the safest places that i have been.

As Amsterdam boast about their arts to some of the world's famous artist like Van Gogh, even if i do not appreciate art nor am I a museum person, visiting one of this place consider myself checked into Amsterdam! But hey, I do really like the Van Gogh museum and understand  his personalities, his history, his family and his arts! 




This is a medieval aura filled …

Climbing

Image
Sometimes, i wonder why do i climb? Why do i suddenly have an interest in climbing? Why do i climb to get all the bruises, broken skin, wobbly arms and aching legs...
At least i know that strength doesn't come from what i can do. It comes from overcoming the things i once though i couldn't do. Climbing keeps me happy and motivated... Climbing works every muscle in my body...
People that i do not know, cheer me & taught me the ways and technique of climbing. It is also always inspiring to see how other people climb/boulder/lead and  i told myself i will be able do it too slowly... =)

I'm slowly learning that ....

Image
I’m slowly learning that the energy it takes to react to every bad thing that happens to you drains you and stops you from seeing the other good things in life. 
I’m slowly learning that I’m not going to be everyone’s cup of tea and I won’t be able to get everyone to treat me the way I want to be treated and that’s okay. I’m slowly learning that trying so hard to ‘win’ anyone is just a waste of time and energy and it fills you with nothing but emptiness.
I’m slowly learning that not reacting doesn’t mean I’m okay with things, it just means I’m choosing to rise above it. I’m choosing to take the lesson it has served and learn from it. I’m choosing to be the bigger person. I’m choosing my peace of mind because that’s what I truly need. I don’t need more drama. I don’t need people making me feel like I’m not good enough. I don’t need fights and arguments and fake connections.  I’m slowly learning that sometimes not saying anything at all says everything.
I’m slowly learning that reactin…

Harsh Truth ~

Image
But that harsh truth is, that it does.
Often we're so in grossed in our work that we forget to value, 
appreciate & recognise those that we're actually working for. 
We get so wrapped up in our own lives, 
that we forget the people that make up our life. 
Whatever is taken for granted will eventually be taken away. 
That's when we end up missing the most, the people that we least appreciated.
Because we never think that the last time will be the last time, 
we think we have more but we dont.
Because this is really the last ~

Wakayama (和歌山) is located on the south of osaka at the Kansai Region,  on Honshu island kii Penisula ~ 
It was off the beaten path of Japan. But there was translation guide and it does seem like a tourist attraction
but the bus driver that we met, wasn't a bit friendly.
But well, that was only the few bus driver we met ~ The peaceful little town along the coast with castle that tower over the city, having incredible fresh seafood and kawaii cat station master. Will visit in Spring when the sakura blossoms over the beautiful Kimii-dera temple ~

The white breathe of snow ~

Image
To make up for its bone chilling cold,  winter sends its snow storm which cancelled  all the JR trains from the coast area.  There we are being stuck in Kanazawa cancelling our day trip to Kyoto ~
A last min booked GH surprise us with cute receptionist and cosy room! So in Kanazawa, unafraid of the freezing stormy rain & snow, we march through the castles, gardens, museum, district  singing our hearts out, making snow balls.... Isn't that what we all enjoy doing?
