How much I love Wisteria! The old wisteria line from Crabtree & Evelyn. Unfortunately I don’t like their latest concoction of this fragrance…and thus I have been keeping this older one. Do fragrance have any expiry date? 😨
So many things have happened. Somehow, August is a tiring month. I am just so bummed as for now. Perhaps the anxiety is there…and yet I feel a sense of lethargy at some point. I have things to say. But I believe that for some, it’s better that I keep my mouth shut about it. Really, what’s the point of saying so much? Not everyone appreciates you for pointing it out. And yes, some people think it is OK to be rude. Hmmm…basically I don’t even want to acquaint myself with such.
Been reading about the Bangkok Bomb Incident…that’s a very touristy spot…and why are there people of such hearts??? I remember this Chinese saying 一种米养百种人. Very true…not everyone has good heart and not everyone thinks that being nice is a virtue. Or in fact, not everyone thinks it is important to have a virtue. Don’t understand the mindset of people who bear evilness in their hearts. Are they happy people? Or is it that people don’t even want to be happy anymore?
I am thankful to be with, and have known happy people. People who sincerely want to be happy, and strive towards being happy. Life is hard. Who says life is a bed of roses? And we still have to go through daily routines…how much excitement can we have? Time is limited, so don’t we make do with whatever precious moments we have with one another and be happy with ones another? … ok I know, that’s being simple-minded. Simpleton?…but I believe this is better than trying to outdo everyone you meet in your life, only to find that life is just so tiring…full of competitions…? Who gets the trophy?
Does that really matter? Let’s ask ourselves, are you happy? Did you stand up for yourself to let your voice be heard? Did you do your very best for the situation you have encountered?
We see people who place blames onto others…and I wonder where is their sense of responsibility? We see people outsourcing everything, not just food, but also kids and elderly folks. And I wonder where is that kinship and deep feelings?
I love to spend time with my loved ones. As always. As much as I crave for me-time, I try my very best to make sure I allocate personal time for people I care about. What are words when I can just type them out with 8-characters? Or simply just 3-characters with emoticons? Seriously, I don’t believe in words. I believe only in actions. Please don’t tell me you love me when you can’t be bothered to even spend a minute to ask me about my latest commitments. Hmmm…words are easy. But I don’t want to just hear the nice things in life…I want to experience the nice thoughtful and sensible gestures, stemmed from someone who supposedly loves me.
I am thinking about thinking, about feelings, about sensibilities, about responsibilities, about hopes, dreams and future…and aha…I know, people will just say I think too much…and that’s too scary.
I don’t mean to scare you. But if one is easily scared, I am surprised to know how intimidating I can be…hmm…but well, my random thoughts are such, take them or leave me alone.
Was mentioning to a friend that how hard the choice was to drink mineral water instead of alcoholic beverages when both are of similar pricing…😅 And I am happy to know that I have developed a much greater tolerance towards my favourite alcoholic beverage. But well no, please do not drink and drive. Please stay safe. And be safe.
