The Patriot

"A true Malaysian patriot loves Malaysia and all Malaysians." - PM of Malaysia, 2007

"Not that I loved Caesar less, but that I loved Rome more. Had you rather Caesar were living and die all slaves, than that Caesar were dead, to live all free men?" - William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar, Act III Scene 2 (Brutus)

Happy 50th Birthday, Malaysia. You're certainly getting older. But wiser?

Q & A

I left Soton with hopes to find answers to some questions. 5 weeks have almost gone by, halfway through my holidays, and instead of finding the answers I was looking for, I am having more questions in my head than I ever had before. Particularly with regards to my future.

I thought certain issues were straightforward but it was not, I'm afraid. It's all a part of growing up, I suppose, making difficult decisions. But how am I supposed to draft out the next few years of my life when I don't even know what is going to happen next week, or even tomorrow? And certain issues in my life which I thought were unshakable are starting to raise doubts in my head. The voices are quiet now, but if I just let them be, I know they will continue to be louder and demand my attention.

Now is the time to reflect and find my own person. Now is the time for me to find out what I truly want/need.

Because I thought I knew what I wanted, but I'm not so sure anymore.

Life During Hols

I wake up
I have my breakfast
And then I feel sleepy.
So I go to bed

Such is
Life during hols.

Driving ain't so bad after all when I've got a kindly, patient old man as a teacher. I'm one to kan cheong easily, thus a patient, chilled out dude was what I needed as my driving instructor. And I realise that I'm enjoying my driving more and more everyday, as my confidence level increases slowly. Cool. :)
