The Simple Life

This upcoming week, I will experience the true meaning of Self-Directed Learning. Hmmm. Stay away or I'll nuke you. Muahahahaha!!!

Whatever-lah. Just as long as I don't miss the season finale of 'Lost.' It's ending on this Thursday. Sob.

Yes, 'Lost' is awesome tv series. Been watching it since the very 1st episode and it has been my guilty pleasure, reward, motivation factor, positive reinforcement, whatever BS term you can think of... alongside 'Laguna Beach' (oh, how I miss the drama!). It's amazing how an hour of television could make my weekend.

Speaking of life's simple pleasures, I was nurturing my inner child today by visiting the games arcade and a toy store. It was fun strolling in the toy store, watching the displays of various toys. But it was more enjoyable watching children browsing through the simple (albeit overpriced) contraptions and deriving so much joy at the prospect of owning them. I saw this little girl who looked so happy becoming the proud owner of a My Little Pony. It was funny to see how a green plastic horse could elicit such strong reaction, but it was also heartwarming at the same time.

Ah, the innocence and simplicities of childhood.

As we grow older, things get more complicated. Some are more affected- they get jaded, bitter, angry. But it ain't necessarily so.

Maybe all we need to do is just let our inner children play in the sun once in a while. :)

Going Places

But where?

If there's one thing I've learned from the previous month, it'll be this: expect the unexpected.

"Kita hanya boleh merancang. Hanya Tuhan yang menentukan."

But I know this for sure: God's timing is ALWAYS perfect. And that He has a plan for me.

"5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6


It's been a while since I kicked ball...

Last evening, during Futsal, I've never felt so alive. Great game, girls!

I am grateful for my health and able body. I have been blessed with love. I could not ask for more.

Thank You.
