Life

Well, it sucks at the moment.

The other day my colleague showed me a picture of a little boy in some third world country. He was so thin his ribs were showing and he was sitting in a puddle of mud. He was weak and his eyes were tired. A vulture was perched on a rock nearby watching his next meal closely. When is he going to stop fighting and shut his eyes for good? My colleague commented that, "Here I am complaining about getting fat. It is true. Sometimes we just complain and complain but we never realise how lucky we are."

How lucky we are.


How lucky I am.


I have to be thankful for everyone around me who has been so caring and I have to be strong for them.


I went shopping.

My new shoe

View the full collection here. It is soft and has this rubber thing at the back so it fits perfectly and is quite comfortable. And yes, I still love black and white. Especially when they are together.


Erm, just wanted to let you all know that I think I'm doing fine (I did get a new pair of shoes).


Anyways, over the past week, I have been keeping myself busy with work and looking for songs for a project. I just realised how much I take songs for granted. I mean, I will like a song here and a song there and then just keep jumping. I just never really thought that maybe I will like the works of a certain singer and his songs as they can relate to me and so on. Maybe because I just didn't make the effort to understand the lyrics in the first place. So far, I think Goo Goo Dolls has the most songs in my playlist but nope, have not done my research on them yet. Also, I realise that most people have more Westlife's song in their playlist than others. Why is that? Anyways, for the past few days, besides looking for "hot" songs (or so it was referred to), I have also found a few other songs that I could relate to.

One of them was Nelly Furtado's All Good Things.

Honestly what will become of me
don't like reality
It's way too clear to me
But really life is daily
We are what we don't see
Missed everything daydreaming

[Chorus:]
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to end?
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to an end?

Traveling I only stop at exits
Wondering if I'll stay
Young and restless
Living this way I stress less
I want to pull away when the dream dies
The pain sets it and I don't cry
I only feel gravity and I wonder why

Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to end?
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to an end?

Well the dogs were whistling a new tune
Barking at the new moon
Hoping it would come soon so that they could
Dogs were whistling a new tune
Barking at the new moon
Hoping it would come soon so that they could
Die die die die die

Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
Flames to dust
Lovers to friends
Why do all good things come to an end
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to end?
come to an end come to an
Why do all good things come to an end?

Well the dogs were barking at a new moon
Whistling a new tune
Hoping it would come soon
And the sun was wondering if it should stay away for a day 'til the feeling went away
And the sky was falling on the clouds were dropping and
the rain forgot how to bring salvation
the dogs were barking at the new moon
Whistling a new tune
Hoping it would come soon so that they could die.



I don't really know about the dogs barking at the new moon so they could die but liked the chorus. I also found an "older" song which was a sing-along when I was in high school. I didn't know it would apply.

Remember Vertical Horizon? - Best I Ever Had

So you sailed away
Into a grey sky morning
Now I'm here to stay
Love can be so boring

Nothing's quite the same now
I just say your name now

[Chorus]
But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You don't want me back
You're just the best I ever had

So you stole my world
Now I'm just a phony
Remembering the girl
Leaves me down and lonely

Send it in a letter
Make yourself feel better

[Chorus]
But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
You don't need me back
You're just the best I ever had

And it may take some time to
Patch me up inside
But I can't take it so I
Run away and hide
And I may find in time that
You were always right
You're always right

So you sailed away
Into a grey sky morning
Now I'm here to stay
Love can be so boring

What was it you wanted
Could it be I'm haunted

[Chorus]
But it's not so bad
You're only the best I ever had
I don't want you back
You're just the best I ever had
The best I ever had
The best I ever


I don't really know if I should get to a priest soon (haunted) but yeah, I think songs are kind of helpful. They sort of accompany you. I feel... accompanied.


I think I am still quite lost. But I also think I'm better now. Anyhow, thanks dear friends. Love you guys.

What A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' "How do you do?"
They're really saying "I love you"

I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world
