Are You Afraid Of The Dark?

The light & heat of the sun

These are composed of minute atoms which

When they are shoved off

Lose no time in shooting right across the inter space of air in the direction imparted by the shove.

On the nature of the Universe

There are many sources of light.

The most common light sources are thermal.

A simple thermal source is sunlight.

The above are extracted from Wikipedia.

But the source of light for this humble blog of ours definitely comes from the readership support from all the lovely souls out there.

And the following are the extra sources of light bestowed to us by some very sweet souls


A Very Lovely and Sporting Soul

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Rest and be thankful. ~ William Wordsworth

Today, my tired mind needed a good rest.

I am thankful to be able to find my ‘bench’ so that I keep on walking.

I do hope all lovely souls would be able to find yourself a comfortable bench,

And have a great rest over the wonderful weekend ahead!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀


One Big Family

We have another powerful photo provided by a lovely soul, Ajaytao and do pardon me for my OCD kicking in by placing the following words from the lyrics of Madonna’s Take A Bow:

Blue Mask – Matt Marquez @ Ajaytao 2010

Blue Mask – Matt Marquez @ Ajaytao 2010

Loneliness is a complex and usually unpleasant emotional response to isolation.

Loneliness typically includes anxious feelings about a lack of connections or communications with other beings, both in the present and extending into the future.

As such, loneliness can be felt even when surrounded by other people.

There is a difference between being alone and being lonely.

Being alone is being away from others because you choose to.

Being lonely is when there is no one there for you.

~ Unknown

I love being alone at times, but do I ever feel lonely?

Why would I be feeling that when…

As according to Wikipedia, one of the primary functions of the family is to produce and reproduce persons, biologically and/or socially.

Therefore, I would like to thank


A Lovely Lady Who Loves The Nature…

The Presents of Presence

A Strong Lady Who Sends Out Love In Her Unique Ways…


An Inspiring Soul…

for this lovely award nomination.

As according to the creator of this award, Shaun@

“This is an award for everyone who is part of the “Word Press Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can.

The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before.

This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family.

It is my honor to start this award.”               

It is thus our honour to have the following lovely souls joining us in this big family:

Family 1

Family 2

Family 3

Family 4

Family 5

Family 6

There are many other lovely souls that we would love list down, unfortunately I am currently down with a flu (first day…gosh!) and this is as far as my concentration could take me.

If you’ve managed to spot your name in the above lists, do feel free to spread this family love so that there won’t be any more lonely souls out there.

Last but not least, we would like to thank lovely Ajaytao, aristonorganic & Yvonne for including us into their WP family and once again to Ajaytao for making this post possible. 😀

Till Then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Who do you see in that inner mirror of yours?


At times, when the things that you’ve said or done are being totally misunderstood by others?

Have you ever wonder?

Whose fault is this? 

Yours or the one who misunderstood you?

Most of the time, we might be in denial because deep inside because we knew that was not what we’ve meant in the first place.

There’s a saying in Chinese:


A human is afraid of the consequence only after performing an action,

whereas the Bodhisattva starts thinking of the consequence before performing an action.

Yesterday, I’ve made a remark about an incident when I could choose to zip my lips and continue whatever I was doing.

It wasn’t any bad remark and the one who heard it didn’t really mind since we’ve been in the same group for many years and knew each other well enough to know that it was only a joking remark.

However, a person from another group had misunderstood my remark as a rebuttal and told Lovable Mom about it.

I felt really bad

Not because that person has misunderstood me



Who has caused all those unnecessary misunderstandings.

Perhaps I have not been doing enough self-reflection and thus gotten carried away at times.  

This might be a sign telling me that I should start doing it more often in the future.

Found this picture at Ajaytao’s lovely blog and I am glad to be able to come out with some words of self-reminder in the following picture:

A Frame within a frame within a frame – Shi Jian Chiou

A Frame within a frame within a frame – Shi Jian Chiou

As always, I would like to thank Ajaytao for sharing with us so many wonderful and inspirational information.

It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way.

To keep your truth in sight you must keep yourself in sight and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image;

the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.

~ C. JoyBell C.

As I’ve mentioned in the first line of this post, this is my confession in order to become a better person than yesterday.

If you’ve been reading until this line, thank you for shining your light on me via your lovely readership supports.

My Monday may be a little gloomy, but I am sure the rest of the day would be marvelous, just like all other Mondays.

So, may you lovely souls have a Marvelous Monday ahead too!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Love Is Always In The Air

Lovely Award

It is an honour to receive another “Lovely Blog Award” nomination and we would like to thank a lovely soul by the name of Shirlyn @ Cosy Bites for this lovely nomination.

If you are looking for food recipes to spice up your cooking life, be sure to check her lovely blog out. Her latest post “Honeydew Sago” made me drool all over the place… (do pardon me for this ill-manner)…for it is really hot in Singapore right now.

I decided to do this award addressing post because the following picture that I’ve came across in a lovely blog – Friendlypics – has given me some inspirations:

Love is always in the air

Once a heart has the awareness to…

Venture into the brightness of hope and joy while

Exiling all darkness that once consumed it whole 

We love to dedicate this to the lovely blog owner @  Friendlypics  for making this post possible and at the same time, this post award nomination post is dedicated to the following lovely souls who have selflessly allowing us to use their pictures and words in some of our previous posts:

  •  Ajaytao @ Ajaytao 2010: For making the posts “A Streaking Stream’s Question” ,”Surviving Harsh Winters” and “Knock! Knock!”  possible.
  • Ana @ Geophilia: For making the posts “Even If…This Road Just Goes Forever” , “Mission Impossible???”  and “An Unquestioning Faith” possible.

Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment.
~  Tony Robbins


Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Answers…By The Broken Mirror

A lovely soul, Brijit @ BRIJIT’S DIGITS has nominated us the Sunshine Award

Most of her nominees are nail art related but she nominated us and here’s the reason that pinned a big smile on our face:

Clouds N Cups – this blog isn’t about nails, it’s just such a happy place

If you are a nail polish/art lover, why don’t you give her blog a visit and see what interesting things she has to share with you lovely souls.



The Sunshine Award is an award for Bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.

Normally we don’t do any nomination, but just for this award, we would love to nominate Marisoto @ The Broken Mirror , who definitely deserves this nomination.

This is a blog which I’ve been following for quite a while and I can really feel the rays shining out from her recent writings.

Our modified rule for this award is really simple – – To continue upload more sunshiny posts in the future.  

Without further adieu, here’s the beginning of the post that inspired me – Answers -:

A woman stands in front of her Doctor.

He asked her how she felt.

She said okay, which was lie.

Why are you here, he asked.

I don’t know, she said, but she knew.

Do you want to say something, he asked.

No, she said, even though a lot needed to be said.

May you sit down, and she said yes.

So the doctor asked…

Please read the complete post at


The doctor asked many questions and I’ve chosen these answers to the question of “What Do You Love? Why?” because they have touched my heart and inspired me to create this using her lovely words:

28032013 - What Do You Love (Marisoto)

Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.

~ Walt Whitman

Have a Great Sunshiny Thursday!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~

A Fall Can Be Lovely Too

A lovely soul, Reocochran, who has so many wonderful stories to be told in her blog, has made a lovely comment in our previous post “An Unquestioning Faith” that pins a smile on my face because she has made me realized that a fall can be lovely too:

Lovely Falls - 18-3-2013

Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.
~ Victor Kiam

Happy Falling!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~
