Once In A Red Moon…


Today is the 15th day of the Lunar 8th Month.

The Mid-Autumn Festival is held on this day (a full-moon night) and celebrates three fundamental concepts which are closely tied to one another:

  • gathering, such as family and friends coming together, or harvesting crops
  • thanksgiving, to give thanks for the harvest, or for harmonious unions
  • praying (asking for conceptual or material satisfaction), such as for babies, a spouse, beauty, longevity, or for a good future)

The Government of the People’s Republic of China listed the festival as an “intangible cultural heritage” in 2006, and it was made a Chinese public holiday in 2008.

It is also a public holiday in Taiwan. Among the Vietnamese, it is considered the second most important holiday tradition.

WHY ISN’T IT A HOLIDAY IN SINGAPORE???

Anyway, do free feel to click HERE to read more about this lovely festival.

Things I’ve Written Back Then (Part 3)


***  BELIEVE IT OR NOT, BUT THAT’S JUST ME… ***

It’s always good to hear good news about other people because I prefer to laugh along rather than to cry along with them.

Why did I say that?

Well, you may just say that I am someone who is generous when comes to emotion… 😛

*****

Whenever I hear of my loved ones (i.e. people related to me), friends or even those people whom I really hate or don’t wish to speak to, telling me how wonderful their current lives are, I would feel 10 times happier than them to know that they are now living wonderfully and I would even smile stupidly to myself.

On the contrast, if something had happened to the above-group of people (yep, even those whom I hate or don’t wish to speak to), I would feel 10 times miserable than them.

*****

Don’t really mind people not remembering me when they are living happily, but I would really mind if people I know of, especially my loved ones, don’t even bother to tell me when they are being bothered by something that they have no solution for.

So, my dear brother and baby sis, if you two happened to read this entry,

I just wanted to let you know how much you two are meant to me and how much I love you two

although I may be a little ‘violent’ sometimes…erhhmmm…you two know what right? Hehhee…

*****

I might not be rich enough to settle monetary problems, but at the bottom line, I am able to lend them my ear.

But, I would also lecture them if I were to know the reason of their miseries could be avoided if they had bothered to find a friend (not necessarily me) to speak to.

I would feel very frustrated because it was already too late for me to help.

Not trying to be a saint here, just wanting to express my inner feeling instead of bottling them up.

PEOPLE DON’T CARE HOW MUCH YOU KNOW, UNTIL THEY KNEW HOW MUCH YOU CARE…

JUNE, 2005

Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight.

Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster,

and do it with no thought of any reward.

Your life will never be the same again.

~ Og Mandino

Things I’ve Written Back Then (Part 2)


*** BLAH… ***

“Hope is a dangerous thing to lose.”

This is the phrase I’ve heard from one of the character saying in ‘LOST’ during last night.

He’s right.

(Or should I say the script writer is right instead?)

In one of the CSI-New York episodes, one character was relating how he was coping with the lost of his wife, who died in the 911-incident.

In order to move on with his life, he threw everything that belonged to his wife away, everything except for a self-inflated beach ball.

It was a beach ball inflated by his wife when she was still alive. 

Why a beach ball, you may wonder.

Why did he keep it when he was already determined to move on with his life?

He said, 

“I couldn’t throw it away because part of her is still inside.” 

I almost cried and I would like to give my praise to the script-writer of that particular episode.

JUNE, 2005

Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are

something to do,

something to love,

and something to hope for.

ID-10011509

Hmm…I am still not sure why I’ve named the title of that post “Blah…”?

I guess it must be one of those random ramblings I would blog during lunch time at work….LOL!

If you are wondering which CSI-New York episode I was referring to, it is the first episode of the first season.

As for the quote mentioned in LOST…oops…memory lost in transit…LOL…sorry!!

Have a great Monday ahead!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~ 😀

Things I’ve Written Back Then (Part 1)


Just earlier on, as I was typing a reply to one lovely soul, the content of my reply made me look back at a blog which I’ve written between 2002 and 2009.

Many sweet and bitter memories flooded my mind while I was re-reading those writings of mine and there is this question that I keep asking myself while reading them: “Did I really write this?”

After reading them, I’ve this feeling that I need to reinforce myself with those thoughts that I’ve reminded myself during back then so that I will continue sticking to the positive ones and getting rid of those negative ones.

There are six posts that I would like to share with all you lovely souls and I do hope this post and the next five posts may serve as a gentle reminder for you if you have encountered similar issues as I once (and perhaps still) encountered.

Without further adieu, here’s the first post:

** EVERYONE IS SPECIAL **

From now on, I am going to remind myself not to grumble too much (even inside my heart)

for I think too much grumbling/complaining might just make your life even more miserable.

In life, we don’t really know what we will be encountering the moment we open our eyes in the morning. 

May it be good or bad,

have we ever wonder what are the factors determining if we should have

A very good day?

A good day?

 A semi-good day?

A very bad day?

A bad day?

Or a semi-bad day?

*****

When it rains, we complain.

When the sun is always there, we complain.

When the bus is late, we complain.

When the bus is early, we complain

*****

The same incident happening may not receive the same reaction from two different people, that’s why we complain.

So, I am wondering…

If I would stop complaining (even inside my heart), am I able to steer my life into a more positive and brighter path?

*****

It can be a difficult task but I do see people achieving it, that is,

to forsake the big ‘I’ and think more about ‘You’, ‘He’, ‘She’ and ‘Them’.

*****

Each and every one of us will have someone/something to account for.

Each and every one of us is a special individual.

Perhaps you might not be that special one to the person whom you wanted he/she see you as,

but we can never deny the fact that we are indeed special to someone out there.

*****

Let me see the world from a different view and journey through the last two years of my twenties in a sense that

when I reached the next stage of my life,

I won’t start cursing myself for wasting my life away….

APRIL, 2005

Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns; I am thankful that thorns have roses.

~ Alphonse Karr

Let’s not be like poor old Mr. Grumble and have a great day ahead, always!

Till then,

There Is A Meaning To All This…


It has been a while since we’ve last shared those lovely and enlightening words from my Facebook App: Message From God and without further adieu, here’s another lovely string of words to be shared with you lovely souls out there reading this humble blog of ours:

08042013 - Every Stitch

Life is without meaning.

You bring the meaning to it.

The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be.

Being alive is the meaning.

~ Joseph Campbell

Hey, it’s the first day of yet another brand new week!

So, do have a GREAT DAY ahead!

When Coffee Doesn’t Work…


04042013 - Read and Write

The reason I like coffee is probably the same as Hoops and Yoyo…

Especially when I am drafting a new post.

But when coffee just doesn’t work

I guess I am fine with just reading

Have a great day!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~

Gosh! It Isn’t Even A Word?


Impossible - 15-3-2013

A lovely soul Fashion Mayann left us a comment after reading “Mission Impossible???”:

 In France, we have this saying : “Impossible is not French” !!! Have a bright day ! 

I was very intrigued by this saying and decided to check it out. Here are the information that I’ve extracted from french.about.com:

Meaning of this say

There’s no such thing as can’t

This French expression is actually a proverb, equivalent to “there’s no such thing as can’t” or simply “nothing is impossible.”

In French, you should never say that something is impossible, because – according to the proverb – impossible isn’t even a French word.

Likewise, in English, you should never say that you “can’t” do something because the concept of “can’t” doesn’t exist.

In other words, nothing is impossible and there isn’t anything you can’t do.

Here’s another lovely comment that we’ve received from Samantha @ Bondingtool concerning this topic:

I saw a picture of fish climbing tree once and another of different animals made to perform tasks not suitable for them.

Yeah… Nothing is impossible :D

Always remember one important thing

  Although nothing is impossible

It doesn’t mean that you can do whatever your heart wants you to do

Doing the same thing with different intentions

May it be good or bad

It it entirely up to you to decide

The result might be the same

What matter most is

The initial intention

Have a great Friday and wonderful weekend ahead!

Till then,

Cheers & TTFN~
