Tomorrow is never promised…

One day a woman's husband died, and on that clear, cold morning, in the warmth of their bedroom, the wife was struck with the pain of learning that sometimes there isn't "anymore". No more hugs, no more special moments to celebrate together, no more phone calls just to chat, no more "just one minute."


Sometimes, what we care about the most gets all used up and goes away, never to return before we can say good-bye, say "I love you."


So while we have it, it's best we love it, care for it, fix it when it's broken and heal it when it's sick. This is true for marriage, and old cars, and children with bad report cards, and dogs with bad hips, and aging parents and grandparents. We keep them because they are worth it, because we are worth it.


Some things we keep - like a best friend who moved away or a sister-in-law after divorce. There are just some things that make us happy, no matter what.


Life is important, like people we know who are special and so, we keep them close! Suppose one morning you never wake up, do all your friends know you love them?


I was thinking, I could die today, tomorrow or next week, and I wondered if I had any wounds needing to be healed, friendships that needed rekindling or three words needing to be said.


Let every one of your friends know you love them. Even if you think they don't love you back, you would be amazed at what those three little words and a smile can do.  And just in case I'm gone tomorrow.


Live today because tomorrow is not promised!

I'm missing you...
I would give the whole world for you...
Anything you ask of me, I'd do...
But I won't ask you to stay...
I'd rather walk away...
If your heart's not in it...
If you've got something to tell me...
Don't keep it inside...
Let it be heard...

It doesn't matter what mood you're in, there's always a song that can represent your feeling at any moment. Let the song sings out for you. This is the beauty of music.

Let it rain... For after such a weather, sunshine will come...

Oh the sky grey
On this work day
You’re just playing along
just to see the day though
You’re lonely and blue
Writing’s on the window
There’s a deep longing sigh
You’re far off in thoughts
You heart’s grown all cold
it would be warm if you could sing a song
Let it rain, rain
It’s the perfect weather for contemplating
Let it rain, rain For after such a weather
Sunshine will come
The rainbows And the laughter
And the serious smile It’s teasing you pal
Like it’s coming to get you
Oh they wish for you To be happy again
But you’re locked up inside
You’re missing your cue
Feeling weary Stop running away
You’re finding it hard to breath
Let it rain, rain
It’s the perfect weather for contemplating
Let it rain, rain For after such a weather
Sunshine will come
Let it rain, rain
It’s the perfect weather for contemplating
Let it rain, rain For after such a weather
Sunshine will come

Live for TODAY!

A friend of mine opened his wife's underwear drawer and picked up a silk paper wrapped package. “This…” he said, “…isn't any ordinary package.” He unwrapped the box and stared at both the silk paper and the box. “She got this the first time we went to New York, 8 or 9 years ago. She has never put it on, was saving it for a special occasion. “Well, I guess this is it.”


He got near the bed and placed the gift box next to the other clothing he was taking to the funeral house, his wife had just died. He turned to me and said, “Never save something for a special occasion. Every day in your life is a special occasion.”


I still think those words changed my life. Now I read more and clean less. I sit on the porch without worrying about anything. I spend more time with my family, and less at work. I understood that life should be a source of experience to be lived up to, not survived through. I no longer keep anything. I use crystal glasses every day. I’ll wear new clothes to go to the supermarket, if I feel like it. I don't save my special perfume for special occasions, I use it whenever I want to.


The words “Someday” and “One Day” are fading away from my dictionary. If it’s worth seeing, listening or doing, I want to see, listen or do it now.


I don’t know what my friend’s wife would have done if she knew she wouldn’t be there the next morning, this nobody can tell. I think she might have called her relatives and closest friends. She might call old friends to make peace over past quarrels. I’d like to think she would go out for Chinese, her favourite food.


It’s these small things that I would regret not doing, if I knew my time had come. Each day, each hour, each minute, is special. Live for today, for tomorrow is promised to no one.

It’s just like clapping with a hand, soundless. No one is worth your tears because those who love you will never make you cry. 想念真的是会呼吸的通。如果爱得那么辛苦,为何还要爱?我真的需要离开这里。我脑袋已经不清醒了。I don’t even know what am I thinking now. I don’t even know what I want now. I’m LOST!

I lost to myself again!

And this time, my emotion beats my rationality. Sometimes, I really don’t mind working till late hours because through this way, I can control myself not to think too much. The only way to cure myself is to make myself busy, busy and super busy even to the extend of not having enough sleep. But how long can I continue to live this way?

In order not to make my blog looks so gloomy, I shall upload more photos and not to write so much on my emo stuff. One month ago I went to KL with my family and we visited quite a lot of places. One of the places that I like most is here!



It’s located in Pavillion, level 6. I personally love this place because I felt as though I was in Japan when I stepped into this area. It is occupied with uniquely designed Japanese style shops and restaurants.


There is this little tea shop called Ochado which sells all sorts of tea. Many people are so into Chatime nowadays but I think that this is better than Chatime.




There were many people queuing up too. I seriously need to go Japan for vacation one day! I just love Japan so, so much! I have the feeling like I was from there. I belong to there. I just don’t know why but I have loved Japan since I was still a small kid.

It’s the same old feeling again. Emptiness.

I thought I can hold myself back once I’ve made my mind clear but it’s tough. I think I’ve fall for you. After 5 years of refraining myself from falling in love, I fail this time.

Critical Decision

Standing in the middle of the road where there are a few paths to choose. I feel indecisive. This choice is critical. It can determine and change my whole life. I don’t want to make the wrong choice and ended up ruining my own life. The destination point of these paths are unclear to me. That’s why it’s hard to decide. If I don’t set my mind clear now, I’d be going somewhere where I don’t wish to go and there’s no turning back. Who can guide me?
