Clean? Again? for IF


yeah..I know...this is my SECOND POST for the same topic - on the SAME DAY....
It was supposed to be a very eventful afternoon and evening, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, here I am, writing away some of my blues! (well, lucky for my neighbours - at least I'm not singing!)
...............................
which reminded me of this watercolour & pen painting I did sometime ago (also one of my postcard series)
I remember why I did this, but this time, I will not disclose it here...
...only, it's got a lot to do with emotional cleansing - hence, a suitable post for this week's topic.
As I'm badly in need of some humour here, and there's nobody around to humour me at the moment, I'll do it myself.
Ready?
Try to imagine this -
I'm singing, ever so loudly, ever so "out-of-tune-ly",
and there's this neighbour, a few doors away,
praying fervently, that I will stop singing (or rather, croaking),
praying that if I really stop, he'll start doing charity, donate cash and kinds to the needy,
pray six times a day, drive politely,
and try his best never again condemn any of the American Idol contestants, the bad ones especially.....
Hmm...perhaps, I should really stop writing and start singing here, I might be able to save some souls here! :D
sigh.....

Clean? for IF


Something light, something fun, something dirty and untidy, for a change!
...................
Clean? Me? The above illustrations is quite an accurate representation of me -
most of the time! :)
Just ask them!
look at how they are shouting at me to clean up my room, my desk, my apartment...
...and they say Meloncholic people are usually
very very neat, tidy and clean and very particular :D
...............................
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

A tiny work room....



glimpses of my humble little apartment workroom...
I think it's not untidy enough to represent me at the moment :)
but I shall soon post one after I've unpacked everything and
when it's really really messy! That's me!
and there's the view from the workroom's window...
I took that view this morning at about 7am,
it was about to rain then....

Your Opposite

Been feeling under the weather for the past few days, but really don't want to miss this week's topic Opposite.
But all I could come up with is this little boy here - looking at you..
sending you love from your opposite
while I rest a bit...

Walking Stick (Sacrifice) for IF


Ba Ba, how do you go to work?....
.........................
That was what I asked my papa when I was a little girl.
I always wonder, at that time, how is it possible that my father, who is blind,
finds his way to work....
how did he know if the bus has arrived, or if it's the right one...
and when it rains, where does he go for shelter...
when he gets on the wrong bus...what does he do...how does he feel.......
how about the passersby or others who waits at the bus stand? Were they kind to him?.....
...my papa never really answered me....I guess it was not always a smooth journey....
...but there's no answer required...
because I already knew it...and now that I'm a grown up, I treasure my papa and mama even more...
for what they've gone through for my 2 elder brothers and I....
for their sacrifice....
....the answer from my papa...could have been like this in his heart....
"Constance, I go to work with love....that's all....just love.....and with the help of my walking stick...."
................................
Treasure your parents...let them know that you love them....that you remember...

What is love...

What is love, you asked me. This is love:
...........................................
Two halves have little choice but to join
and yes
they do make a whole
but two wholes
when they coincide....
that is beauty.....
that is love...
(From the book: How To Survive The Loss Of A Love)

A night like this for IF


I just came back to my own apartment after a wonderful time with my parents and the adorable sunday school kids...
and have only just checked for this week's topic...then the above came immediately to my mind...
It was done 'hundreds of years ago' (my way of saying a long, long time ago),
when I first tried out Photoshop on my own...
It's titled: A Night Like This....
I cannot remember why I did this...though I've printed it out, I've never shown this to anyone before...it's not even in my website...
so, I guess, things do happen for a reason...
The reason why I did this hundreds of years ago, could be for this week's topic for IF!

3 Empty Cups

3 empty cups...one lonely me...
------------------------
to my dearest friends of 10 years....Angie, Ivy and Joey
We've boarded the same bus
10 years ago,
our journey was happy
our journey was sad
our journey was confusing
our journey was enlightening
We had a good time
in the same bus...
...but we have different destinations...
we have different dreams...
the bus have brought us this far...
we have enjoyed each other's company this far...
we know it don't we, that we'll someday go down at different stations?
we know it don't we, that we might soon part....
but until then,
let us enjoy each other
let us treasure this moment
let us continue to share our stories
till the last person gets down the bus...
