Sweet 16

My darling sis is all grown up and ready to kill the cake.. :) and NO, you can't have her number and YES, you will have to answer to me if you try anything funny with my baby sis - both of em.

That said, i was scrolling through my blog and i realised that within the span of little more than a week, my blog has taken a highly depressing turn... *ai.. not good*

I suppose i have been through a rather wide array of emotions in a relatively short span of time.. had some exhilirating highs and some pretty low lows. Thinking bout things sometimes still puts me in "moods" again. Driving myself crazy, driving alot of people crazy. *Cue song: Life is a Rollercoaster.."* (heheh.. My lameness is back, that should mean i'm feeling ok again ;) )

Sorry & thx so so much to all the lovely people around me who bear with me when i'm down, cheer me up when i need it the most, make me smile, grit their teeth and listen to me whine - you know who you are.. thanx.. it means a lot to me, really, it does :)

I reckon it's about time to start spreading some happy vibes again. I'll try. Here's a first. *cheers*

Sutera II

"When the sun sets on the Sahara & the moon freezes over, when the Mohabi red turns into blue..."

There were photographers lined up around the marina, each one completely immersed in the beauty that surrounded him. All looking at the same sunset but eac in his own unique way. Sort of a metaphor to life.

Been feeling a little bummed the whole week. Given that i actually had what, under normal circumstances, i would consider a good week, it's deeply upsetting. Been sort of sad, thoughtful, confused, frustrated and every other depressing adjective in the english vocabulary. Not much fun to be around i'm afraid. Sometimes i wish that everyone could just let everyone be - let them live the way they want to, be the people they want to be, say the things they want to say. Seems that's too much to ask though. Anyways, i shant bother you with my melancholic ramblings any further.

When i first took this picture, i thought it felt rather calm, serene, peaceful..looking at it now, it bears a wistful after taste - it's just an idealistic dream.

Life as an idealistic dream.

it's 3 in the morning and i've been meaning to get offline since 1am.. talk about procrastination ;) But really, i should be logging off.. need..sleep... Unfortunately for me, my itchy fingers can't help but post one more pic on my site. I've been a bit blog-deprived recently as you can see.

This was taken at the Marina@ Sutera Harbour, KK, Malaysia. I fell in love with the sunsets there.. gorgeous, gorgeous skies that streached the entire horizon.. Simba Skies i called 'em (you know, Lion King, Simba..... no?). It was such a peaceful, lazy evening....one of those typical-romance-novel-setting evenings with a gentle breeze, the soft sound of lapping waves mixed with distant sounds of sultry guitar rendition, the air rich with that salty sea smell... the beautiful people strolling by the bay, blazing sunset, lyrical silhouttes... *sigh* yeap, one of those kinda evenings.

Tsunami Relief Aid
"Little things are indeed little, but to be faithful in little things is a great thing. "
"It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving."
"One drop of water is only one drop of water but the sea would be less if not for that one drop."
- Mother Theresa

"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
- Aesop

To anyone and everyone who ever thought that giving what you can, regardless of whether it's 1 bottle of water or 1 000 000 000 bottles, will not be of significant aid to the relief efforts, please, take a moment to rethink that.

With that said, there are various organisations around the world that are appealing for aid whether in cash, kind or service for Tsunami Relief Projects. Below are some links to more info on how you may do your little bit for society:
