Too much coffee.....



because of darkness, we know light

because of ugliness, we know beauty

what is good

what is bad

for is good really good

when it brings out the ugliness in others?

for is bad really bad

when it brings out the beauty in others....

when we judge others

because of their 'ugliness'

we are in other words

praising our own 'beauty'

and because of this self glorifying act

we are already slightly tainted

less beautiful

and the more we judge others,

the uglier we become.....

Marjorie's Print!



Oh! Isn't the above just beautiful?!!
I've finally received Marjorie's (Majeak Ann) print last week, just before leaving for Penang to have my yearly Chinese New Year reunion dinner with family and relatives and off course, with my 102 year old grandma!
It's touching enough to just see Marjorie's works from the screen, but to receive it in print and to see it close up - it is awesome! I'm really enchanted by her works.....
Do pop by to her site and I'm sure you'll be enchanted as well!

Sprout of Renewal....for IF



I went back into my past,
and at the spot
where my last teardrop fell
for you
now stands a beautiful flower....
this,
I will treasure much
for it is the only beauty
and the first beauty....
that has come out
from this relationship......
Everything happens for a reason....
perhaps you'll not see the goodness at the time of sadness,
but you'll realize someday,
that it is actually better that way.....

Tagged by Annax!

I've been tagged by Annax! Annax is also one of my favourite illustrator and am always enchanted by her watercolour works - especially how she paints the eyes! I'm always touched by hers and Marjorie's works :) Please do visit her beautiful works if you havent.
Annax, actually, I share all of the 'weird' things, except one, that you've listed in yours as well :)
RULES: People who get tagged need to write a blog post of 6 weird things about them as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment that says "you are tagged" in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

1. I can't bear to see a picture being hanged slightly tilted.....it really disturbs me! Once I was having lunch at a restaurant and noticed one of their paintings were hung slightly tilted to the right....I could not pay full attention to what my lunch partners are talking about or enjoy my food to the fullest because it just bothers me, but nobody seemed to be bothered by it! It was that bad that I have to request for the waiter to adjust the picture!

2. I have this tendency to burst into laughter at the most inappropriate time! In school, years ago, I used to want to laugh during school assembly, when the national song is being played...I seriously do not know why, but seriousness triggers my laughter switch! The most embarassing thing that I could remember was the time I burst out laughing suddenly when in the office lift filled with directors and visiting clients from Korea. .....gosh...it was scary and thank goodness I wasn't fired for that!

3. I can make my ears move on their own! It's really a talent that I'm proud of...but then again, both my brothers are able to do so too.....I guess, it runs in the family! ha! ha! It's usually my ice-breaking topic when I'm sitting at a table of strangers...."Hey, nice to meet you. Would you like to see me move my ears?"

Well, now, I'm training my nephews to do the same....I must work hard to pass on this gift to others.......
4. I like to watch people wiping tables or cleaning with cloth or dusting in an unhurried, gentle way......it soothes me very much! In the office, I always look forward to 4.45pm because that's when the cleaners would come and clean up the office.....and wipe my table or even my Mac's screen if I request them to do so.....in fact, I usually scout for just any surface and ask the cleaner to wipe them, so that I could watch a litttle bit longer! This must be my weirdest habit! In fact, I've actually thought of employing people to come over to my house if I ever become a millionaire and wipe or clean a furniture in my room every night till I fall asleep! Ha! ha! It's quite funny to think that when a person gets rich, he/she will usually engage an orchestra or a live band to perform just for them.....but for me, I'd be engaging people to clean just for me! Oh my!
5. I check the fridge out every now and then.....just in case I missed anything the last time I opened it...and that could just be like 3 mintues ago.....hoping to discover at some corners of the fridge something delicious, something reallly tasty that I might have overlooked earlier......
6. I think I've mentioned before that I love to sing when I'm driving or when I'm showering....but to be very frank(please excuse me).....my singing is most passionate when I'm at the toilet.....hmmm......it's really the best time to sing......

Well, I hope I've not scared my friends away by revealing my weird habits!
And now, I'd love to pass this tag on to:
