Rekindling the Flame


It has been ages since I last updated a blog entry. Something doesn't feel right in my mind, largely because of a completely different way of life that I will be taking from now onward.  Back to the campus, attending classes while majority of the friends are no longer sitting next to me. I have no idea if I will be able get through all this by myself but heck I am all prepared. No use of getting scared of the darkness ahead. Dare to face the problem is already the first step to build a fire. 

Starting to miss the friends, watching back the video really makes me feel heavy inside. I wish I had a timeless portal that I could dive into, to rebuild the reality when we were still together. My friends, I'll be with you in my heart. Forever and ever.

在寻友的路上

没人懂下一秒自己会与谁结缘,更不懂谁会是自己将来生命中的伙伴。 但要知道在寻觅的路途中有无数的角色来来往往,有停留脚步闲谈的,也有加快脚步离开的。能并肩而行是幸福,也是一种缘分;而步伐渐远是可惜,更是一个领悟。新朋或旧友能走到最后,才值得珍惜让大家相识一场的机会。

Talk about stars in the sky of music

Carly Rae Jepsen

"Hey I just met you, and this is crazy, but here's my number, so call me maybe?"
A gorgeous lady hailed from Canada who started out in a weird and funny MV, from which she gained fame with her very first catchy award-winning song, Call Me Maybe. The song appeared as generic to me at first but after listening to it a few more times on the radio, my ears gave in and recognized its "catchiness". Parodies and jokes about the lyrics and the MV have gone wild on the Internet, adding some more laughable elements to the song, not to mention it also added the listening value very much to her own song. 

Overall Carly is a young, energetic, innocent and clean female singer with sweet vocal. Her duet in this year with Owl City, Good Time, has made it to my Favorite list and the replay button is fiery hot.




Avril Lavigne

Another hot singer from Canada. Who doesn't know about this talented Canadian gem would leave me speechless. Back in the early 2000s, she appeared with a characteristic of wild and rebellious girl in her first song, Complicated. Wild while innocent in her early career, she has matured into a fine young lady throughout the years. Blonde hair with pink and green color dye, smokey eyes have become the symbols of Avril Lavigne. Girlfriend, a successful catchy song spread like wild fire around the globe which received supports from the young generation.

Avril definitely grabs the spotlight for being a "punkish girl next door".





Taylor Swift

Remember we got to know Taylor Swift when a gorgeous blonde lady was singing with great vocal and a guitar by her side on the bed. Her blonde curls and red lip emit the aura of Marilyn Monroe in her, although they don't look alike to me whatsoever. I was first truly exposed to American Country music by listening to Taylor's pieces of music. She has got real life stories to tell in all her music, to name the recent one, Ronan. A new song in memorial of a young boy called Ronan, who passed away from cancer.

Teardrops On My Guitar is still catchy even some years after its production. Taylor Swift is on the way of making even more chart-topping good music!

Hardship Has Been Getting Harder


2012, a year that has infused me with much of the life experiences, they are to be remembered, to be woven into the thread of my fate. I have reached the point of my life in a university which opened my mind to think things through differently.

We live through everyday with so many "what if" and there could only be one answer made into reality. In the end, the outcome is born out of our passionate to achieve, let's not forget the elements of chances or lucks. Some might say, luck is not a factor of your success but effort solely is . I beg to differ. Failure itself is the spawn of misfortune. Achievers grabbed a chance and worked it out. 

Believe it, maintaining requires much more from you than that of achieving. The difficult moment when you achieve something pale in comparison to the long-term maintenance of the very same level from where you stand. Expectation, aim, target would inevitably manifest into pent-up pressure and stress waiting to explode into misery that is beyond your imagination. I learnt to expect and aim accordingly eventually, being aware of my own ability and potential. Achieve what I could not what I should.


An unexpected news today has again, made this year a grief to bear. Knowing that an acquaintance of mine has passed away from severe illness is as painful as losing my own family. Despite the deceased is not a close friend to me, we have had brief conversations out of random occasions, from which I knew a little bit about her. Being an adopted child of the family, one does need a great mind to deal with the threatening pressures and sorrows of getting unwanted and abandoned. A deep impact to the young age. Nevertheless, her life started everyday with a cheerful and friendly smile carved on the face. Optimism has shone through her spirit. May she rest in peace and be eternally under His divine protection and that of the guardian angels.

Colors


Colors have been associated with positive and negative perspectives of life, this symbolism differs in many different cultures.

The beginning of life is pure, simple and radiating the aura of innocence.

A piece of white paper. An artist in the making. Starting with the white that he has, he paints the paper red, black, orange, yellow, gray, blue, brown and many other colors after. So many colors that his life is lively and spirited.


Orange is energy and warmth

Red is passion and excitement

Blue is calm and peace

Brown is comfort and simplicity

Green is jealousy and envy

Yellow is joy and happiness

Gray is sadness and boredom

Purple is devotion and spiritual strength

Pink is enthusiasm and love

White is clarity and purity

Black is fear and anxiety


Colors to the eyes, feelings to the minds. See it, feel it, express it. Such is the norm of life. There are times when we are governed by the colors that intertwine, living in the vortexes of feelings. Expect only the positive colors is to spoil ourselves with the favorable things that we have. Dare to face the hardship and complication, there we have the colorfulness that beautifies what we have. Without challenges, life is dull and uninteresting. Bear in mind, success is born of failure, weakness spawns strength within oneself, mistake enlightens into virtue.

Tossing a coin with head and tail, that is living our life till the end. There is no way to tell the result of the next toss. Be grateful that the next toss is head, be patient that the next toss is tail.

Feel Those Around You. Who is and who isn't.

Sometimes, we have the noteworthy experiences that leave a trace in our memory, something remarkable, good remembrance of what we've been through. However, there are also the slightest things that occur around us, maybe in just a couple of minutes, easily overlooked but in actuality they do bring us the lessons of a lifetime.

Imagine our daily routine, personal grooming. Early in the morning, we wake up with messy hair that immediately puts us in embarrassment if we were to show it to the public. Don't think that we can walk around in the crowd unnoticed as we could be ended up as the focus of the eyes out there instead.

What do we need in order to groom ourselves and make sure that we look smart? Hair gel for those spiky hair freaks, a blow dryer for the damp hair after a good morning shower, a simple comb to secure the untidy hair, and last but not least, a mirror. Yea a mirror, perhaps the "important" thing that we don't wanna miss in the list. Everything just feels awkward without a mirror. True and end of the story.

Now the hidden message of this metaphoric story is that we might have been through a lot of hardships in life with others. This so-called "others" boil down to being somebody who is major or who is minor in the end. Personal grooming is very much alike the problems that we face in a daily basis, grooming tools are analogous to those who are eagerly offering a helping hand, the typical "a friend in need is a friend indeed" situation. Let's talk about the mirror. What we see in it is of course the best of us that we have tried to be. It symbolizes those that share our happiness while being the ones with little to none contribution to the making. "You're beautiful", it says. "You look good today and I am proud of you", it says. "Don't be sad, everything will be fine", says the mirror again. As if being chanted by a spell, we feel like being on top of the world while without knowing where we stand in reality and that also immediately labels those as being the most important VIPs in our life. We consider and believe they are true to us because they say things that we like to hear and please us. We are happier being around them. But what about the tools that we have now forgotten? It seems we have forsaken their identities, their deeds and their enthusiasms to make us the better person when they are indeed the major people. Somebody true to you is there to help till the end of the problem, listening to your heart when you are depressed and putting you in priority, despite being treated unequally and overlooked, it means nothing to them. They wish for nothing in return but wish for you being good all the time.
A lesson to learn - Ensure that we have a scale in heart to judge what is heavier and what is lighter.

Bond<->Heart


Human, being a complicated life form, things without and things within are literally being complicated too. Human heart is well-protected, it resides in the core of life, from within vitality is channeled. Though, we see or perhaps feel that the hearts around us are far more protected than we could imagine. It is to the extent that humans feel reluctant to reach out from inside, forever keeping their truest self from the light. While not expressing the true form of heart, humans adapt to the elements of environment and reshape themselves accordingly to what is perceived as the most fit. The bond that forms in such manner may only last for that long, a predictable "long". To be the most fit definitely has its price to pay, the energy. One day, tiredness will find its way to the front door of your heart's chamber to claim the debt that you have owed to yourself. You need a rest, re-energize yourself ONLY after you have let go of the bond that binds.

Show what you have to show, be our true self and that may guarantee an eternal bond of heart, bond that is not established nor maintained one-sidedly. It is as simple as key and lock concept, compatibility is the key and lock is the compatibility, there is no forcing through the hard way.

When thing goes naturally as what it is meant to be, it looks the most beautiful.
