Feeling proud and thankful

About four to five years back, one of my projects had some challenges and there wasn’t anything I could do about it. At that point in time, it seemed almost impossible to overcome the challenges without asking for budget from the higher management and yet I wasn’t able to justify it. Who would know that four to five years later, […]

It’s time……

The new year has come silently, literally silently as there was not much of a nation wide celebration. I thought it was expected, given the COVID19 situation this year. Looking back once again, I am thankful that I have achieved most of what I wished for and wanted to do, though there may be some imperfections. It is a new […]

This is life.

It’s Christmas day and I had no plan as usual. As I slowly sketched the little monk, I let my mind rested. Sketching didn’t seem to be as difficult as when I initially started, though there is still a lot of rooms for improvement. I wished for a peaceful and slow day and awaited for my movie time to come.

Prayers……

As I sat quietly on the meditation cushion with my eyes closed last night, I started to pray instead of focusing on my breath to be still. They were words of blessings with full of love, care and concern. I know not whether my prayers would be heard but I need to make myself believe that it will work. After […]

Detach, I should

On 23 April 2018, a long lost beloved friend suddenly got in touch with me again, and my life began to blossom with beautiful memories, forgetting that this world is made out of duality. Where there is coming together, there will be departure; Where there is happiness, there will be sadness. Where there is a cause, there is an outcome. Only if we are able to detach ourselves from either side of the duality, will we be able to attain peace in our mind, body and soul. That’s what the middle path is, if I am not wrong. But I am just another man, so I can’t detach myself from this world yet. Then came May 2018  and I was in Hong Kong to implement a solution for a customer. And on this very evening, the team went for a dinner with the customers in Kwun Tong, Hong Kong. I have never enjoyed such entertainment activities in my whole life in a corporate world, hence I didn’t enjoy the meal. The only things I enjoyed were the scenic views surrounding me. Being a photography enthusiast then, I did not forget to bring my camera for some snap shots. As I stood outside the restaurant, leaving behind the “entertainment”, I tried to be as present as I could, enjoying the beautiful scenes. Then I captured this very beautiful scene which I liked very much when I edited it into a black and white picture. I’ve not been taking pictures for a long time. And my Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop were sitting in my notebook for a long time too. I’ve been thinking that one day I will pick up my camera again and start editing photos. This day never come, and one day, I just decided that my digital photography journey has come to an end. The “one day” that I have been thinking about has caused me to waste the monthly subscription which I paid for nothing. I terminated the service a few weeks back, and told myself that one day I will organise and delete all my digital raw files. So I did even though I had some attachments to those raw files. Then I cleared all clothes that I have not touched for the last one year, unsubscribed from Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom and Premiere Pro, […]

Just another day…

I can clearly remember that it was 02 January 2019. I was so desperate that I made a hard decision which created havoc and turmoil in my life. And when the next day came, I received another blow which shattered my heart and realised that I was walking alone. Then I began to feel lost in life, again. History repeated […]

好想 / I truly wish

好想,给母亲写一封信,述说心底里最深的愧疚。 好想,给黄伯父一个承诺,不再让他亲爱的的孩子流泪了。 好想,把自己余生的精力,献给不那么幸福的人。 好想,就此一走了之,放下背负的所有包袱。 好想好想,也只能想想…… I wish to write a letter to mom, and tell her how much guilt I have towards her. I wish to promise uncle Wong, that I will not make his lovely child cry again. I wish to spend the rest of my life, on those less fortunate people. I wish that I can just let […]

Changing my outlook / 改变形象

It was a matter of a soft touch, and the message was sent across the wireless internet from a phone to another. Such communication through the wireless world has become a norm, which sometimes seem to make the world feels cold. While we try our best to inject feelings and emotions into the messages, either with lovely words or emoticons, […]
