Happy Halloween~!

For Americans, October draws to a close with a very whacked celebration. For me personally, it has been a very good month, scoring a perfect 10 out of 10 for 10 obvious reasons. =)

1. Three of my most fav people were born in the month of October
2. Celebrated my first Deepa Raya + Mid-Autumn Festival since returning to M'sia
3. Buka puasas + Open houses <- Yum yum!
4. I got to K many Jay Chou songs
5. Re-discovered the joy of shopping!
6. Ate my fill on chocolate cakes + brownies~~~~!!
7. Two, yes, only two TC meetings!
8. Attended two 'live' concerts + one musical
9. Boy scored 18/20 because MJ is a magician =p
10. Only 61 more days til 2007~~!!

Please, let everyone be happy

Everyday I wish for happiness, for the people I love, the ones I care, and that I too can stay happy.

I don't know the key to happiness, and I don't know how to make people happy. I don't even know why some people are happier than others.

All I can do is wish that you'll someday find your own happiness, a kind of happiness that will allow you to

wake up each morning with a smile on your face;
live today with good things and kind words;
feel blessed to be alive;
laugh, and laugh some more;
find comfort and warmth in the presence of your family, friends, peers and with all the people that you meet

But most of all, I wish that you will discover the kind of happiness that you need to keep you happy even when things go horribly wrong and dying seems like a better option.

I've done all the wishing for you. Only you and you alone can take the next step to find out what makes you happy.

Standing Still

Nooo, this post has nothing to with you. But if it makes you cry, I apologise in advance.

*

I cried for you again today
shed tears because you were no longer by my side
took out dated photos
passed time with 'our songs' drumming in my head
movies we watched together
places we went I re-visited

But it still hurts.

Two coffee cups side by side
your salt and pepper on the dining table
everything tasted bland
the air bitter like fresh citrus droplets
heard your voice calling my name
but when I looked no one's there

When are you coming back?
When will the house feel like home again?

I can't move on when you've left me
standing still
still alone

变心

不知不觉中,我已变心了。

从往年的“无所谓”到“非常不喜欢”,到“好烦,好烦,好烦,请把收音机关掉”。。。 慢慢的,现在全都给忘了。

是花心吗? 还是因天天的接触而产生好感?

这颗心真是不可靠!

Diplomacy 101

Really sound advice from my senior on how to best convey rejection to a wannabe client, though it also applies well for other types of sticky situations.

"We should be more diplomatic and upbeat. When you want to turn someone down, must also give them some positive feedback as well so they don't feel dejected. Good to remember in case someone proposes in future and you're not interested!"

Sweet!
