The house, the birds and the bees.

It took me two weekends to complete the look of our new place. We are blessed with 'just-the-right size' this time and its incredibly perfect for the four of us (me, hubby and our two kitties). The TV area is now a snugly corner for MN and I to cuddle up and watch movie. When the TV is not on, it quickly becomes a cozy nook for playing catch-up with reading.

We have quite a huge lawn with banana trees planted at a corner. Our kitties are extremely pleased to have room to lie around on the grass. Its big enough that we managed to pull off a birthday party for mom which fitted 20 happy people lounging around outside. There's also roses. And pine trees that guarded the house. We wake up to birds singing everyday.

MN and I decided to not have internet connection at home. We wanna have more real quality time together instead of spending it online.

Its a pretty romantic place.

My Anchor

I've never dedicate a song to my husband. Perhaps never will. Couldn't think a good reason why actually. I mean, there's a lot of other ways to tell him how I feel, right? We do 'have a song' to which we really like and said 'hey. maybe we should play this when we walk together, as husband and wife, on our wedding day.' We did and it was the loveliest day.

But Mindy Gledhill's Anchor seems to wrap my heart in its softness and reminds me so much of my husband and why I chose him for the ever after.

When all the world is spinning around
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds
And my feet will not stay on the ground
You anchor me back down 

I am nearly world renowned
As a restless soul who always skips town
But I look for you to come around
And anchor me back down 

There are those who think that I'm strange
They would box me up and tell me to change
But you hold me close and softly say
That you wouldn't have me any other way 

When people pin me as a clown
You behave as though I'm wearing a crown

When I'm lost I feel so very found
When you anchor me back down 

I have not realize.

...until today, that life continues to simplify itself and unfolds before me all the beauties I never seem to notice.

I have not gone out for a long while after my Cambodian trip, except for work and meeting family and close friends, yet I feel like I have grown so much. I have become ascertain to accept things as they are. Insignificance doesn't bother me. It's just a trifling matter. I question. If its left unanswered, I move on. I still get angry but I also learn to understand. I become a teacher and a student of my own little world.

Life has been so simple and terribly beautiful. I wonder if unicorns will poop butterflies next.


I turned twenty-blardy-eight today.

What the hell just happened?

 A quick summary:

·    Woke up very early on Sunday and drove up to my favorite little town for breakfast and then to the hill for some lunch, tea and scones with hubby, Eka and Nadiah.

·    Documented the whole journey, in video.

·    Had a little tooth-y surgery yesterday where they cut my gum and corkscrewed my wisdom tooth.

And right now I’m having the post-anesthesia painful recovery and determine to wrap up my video tonight.

The things I do.

Every day I wake up with the same question in my head: ‘what should I do with my life today?’ Perhaps, I am being overly critical of myself. But this question that I constantly ask, up to an unnerving degree, are what drives me.

Today was not an exception.  What should I do with my life today? How can I vary? But instead, I got myself an answer for tomorrow. Yes, tomorrow – what should I do with my life tomorrow. 

I am going to wake up very early, drive to the nearest little town, have breakfast, explore , discover, stumble, look at faces and document all these using the only weapon I have in my hand right now: my shiny, new point-and-shoot.

It’s about time I learn to make a video.
