Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.

My daily morning XXOOs from Sprite and Spunky (not in the frame).  They become leaping junkies the moment they saw me approach the door separating the house and the garden.  I was balancing my Nokia on one hand while patting them with my left, so the accidental blurry effect turned out quite nice really - after some minor touch-ups on a picture app.

I wrote this the other day on Facebook. :
Though my dogs may never not be my god, they never fail to make me feel like one all the time.
P.S.  Don't wait til the next tsunami to tell your loved ones how much you care. :)

Discipline vs Desire - Tuesday, April 10, 2012 @ 11:06 PM

WARNING!  The following may pose some serious gastronomical threat to some readers.

After that great workout, you walk past the pastry shop and it hits you.  For me, it was the sheer quantity and variety of bread stuff out there on display -  the colours, the texture, the shapes but thankfully, none of the aroma of freshly baked bread.


I hear of friends going weak at their knees at the sight of the tart or that croissant.  Fortunately, I am not a fan of pastry.  But I could not resist snapping a picture of the display with my handphone.  It dawned to me then that I must not let my cravings sabotage my exercise plan - no food after 830pm.  I choose DISCIPLINE.  Well, at least for today!

Stuck - Monday, April 9, 2012 @ 9:29 PM

My thoughts went from bugger traffic to the minutes I watched tickled by on the digital display on the dashboard to the gym class that I might be late for and the mind went on an infinite loop.  The snarling traffic created by a massive pylon heading towards Bishan was enough to drive you mad, literally! 

I was caught in the horrendous evening traffic the week before on the way to a gym class.  But there was this gorgeous sunset right before me.   I was so caught up with the traffic around me that I had ignored blazing beauty before my eyes until it hit me - THE BALL OF FIRE IS TRULY FREAKING AWESOME!  So I pulled my breaks, cranked down the window and leaned out my Nokia 800 as far as my hand could go and went trigger happy.  Thinking back, I should have just climbed on top of my car and have a picnic there!  I mean, the whole world was stuck in traffic.  What's there to worry about drivers around me judging me on the sanity spectrum?  I did this again twice (no, I remained in the car) after the traffic inched forward.  The bliss - priceless.
