I Love Red

I woke up this morning thinking
about 10 years ago today
What did I do
And what was I doing at that time

I am definitely older now
I was definitely cuter then
10 years ago, I fell for a guy who didn't (and, still doesn't) belong to my world
10 years later, I realized that and strange that I don't have a place for him in my heart anymore

I used to have this cute, sporty short hair
I am having longer hair now
I loved flip-flops then and I owned more than 50 pairs
I feel in control when I am in my 3 inches heels now

People asked, how do I manage to walk miles after miles with my speed in my heels
Well, practices make perfect and prepare for blisters that are a trade-off

If I have married Mr Scorpio then
I would be Mrs Scorpio now with two children
Now I am looking at 'Baby Alive' and thinking I have past baby-bearing age
Don't get me wrong
I am not upset, just rambling

I used to like pink
I love red now which many know
Red is seen everywhere with me
It is my signature colour

Happy or unhappy is just a state of mind
When I am 65, I want to look back and find that most of my days are filled with Happiness.

Trip to Miyajima (Hiroshima, Japan)

In March, when work finished 2 hours earlier than planned, my colleagues and I decided to take a quick tour to my favourite Itsukushima Shrine, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Where Sika deers are chasing after our food

I have eaten three trays of grilled oysters

Why Can't Life Be Simpler?

Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall

I used to have an almost waist-length hair, until early March. The harsh winter weather of Japan has completely depleted my hair of moisture, so I cut 1.5 inches off.

Then a month ago, the drought season in Brunei and the running around were too much for me with long hair, so I chopped off another 2 inches. Now, I have a slightly longer than shoulder-length hair. It was uncomfortable at first I must admit, because I couldn't tie them in a bun like I used to. I used to think I am a "care-free" person and won't be bothered about my hair, seems like I was wrong. Every time I look at my old pictures, I begin to miss my longer hairstyle. This is probably one of the millionth time that I am thinking so "womanly" hahaha ...

Anyway, by Christmas, I will be Rapunzel again :-)

Interesting Plants

These "MengKudu" plants have really amazed me - they look like worms and smell like horse urine (sorry my pun).
