Quite suddenly

Quite suddenly, it's almost 2 years since i first met the man that is now my husband.
He is not the wealthiest/ most handsome/ smartest/ most successful person out there but he is very kind and patient. Unlike him ( he proposed to me on our first date 😒),  I did not fall in love with him, i grew into loving him. It was not his fancy degrees or connections or successes that won me, it was the thoughtful selfless things that he would do for me that showed me that this was a man who is sincere.

I realised that 2 people can say the same words "i love you" but the meaning can be worlds apart. Most actually dont love you (and dont realise it) but love what u can be or do for them. When my best friend asked me how its like to be married, i told her that it's like having a best friend all the time. I'm so used to his company that i cant imagine being without.

I have always been an avid traveller.
I am grateful that i have seen many wonderful things the world has to offer. From spending starful night in the sahara dessert to climbing a big glacier cap in iceland, from strolling through endless breathtaking waterfalls at plitvices, to discussing a laparotomy scar on a random cyprian man, from walking through bamboo forests to appreciating the great Gaudi arts, from forlorn dark walks along the famous parisienne cemetery to pretending to do the flamingo dance at sevilla.  I am so glad that now, i can put a face to the person who will be doing all of that with me for the rest of my life.

I love you and lets do this.

Have you ever wanted a break from life?
To escape modern day slavery of bills and contracts and work that chain you.
Shiny new things and glamorous new titles that are like honey traps that pull you in its death grip
And so you seek for fresh air but you cannot get above your own dark clouds.

new book

As a young, rather bright child, i always had interests that consumed me. Things that made me wonder. I was always the kind that fixates on an interest and does not let go until i've learned the ins and outs of it. I remember my early fixation on native americans. I would spend hours finding information on their beliefs and way of life. Back then, i would peruse "Encarta" (an obsolete search engine that existed way before google) and books mainly in English, mind you not an easy task for a little girl with english being not her first language.

Im digressing. My point is that, it feels great to have a fixation, a project to work on. A thing to look forward to.

I know the phrase "opening a new chapter" has been sooo overly used but it truly does describe this point in my life. It isn't necessarily a new chapter as in, a continuation of the previous story of an old book. I am writing a new book in my life.

Lets leave it at that for now.

Dont come in!
There's a terribly dreary wind.
And the air is tight.
Stay out,
Where the roses i planted sprout,
And the sun is bright.

Dont come in.

In between

My life has gone on.

But on some unexplained nights you would appear in my dream. As if the twilight world had seamlessly merged the current and the past, making your presence comfortable.

So comfortable that i did not want the dreams to end.

Somehow the next day life will go on a little less,
Marches on a little more.

Not all the time.
But somehow when I am sad
My mind goes to this place
Like its own Fukushima or Chernobyl
There were once buildings of hopes and dreams
Now abandoned
Left a ghost of what it ever was
If it shall ever come alive again
Perhaps with time, some would say
I don't mind
Somehow in its loneliness
It is rather peaceful here.

The circle of $h!t

I think i enlightened my friend's life today.

So you're a doctor right? How did i get food poisoning?

Faeco from the word faeces? And oral is mouth..

Yes in short, shit to mouth. U took in some shit material and that makes your shit watery.. You're  part of the one big shit cycle which has been around for thousands of years! *gleeful face*
