Accomplishments…

 02 May 2020. Saturday night. This week has been a great week. First of all, dad is recovering, I hope. He has stopped coming over to my house and heeded my advice to stay at home since he has been feeling weak. Besides, he has acknowledged that his anxiety has got to do with the way mom treated him, and […]

Managing expectations

27 April 2020. Monday. It was another normal day on Thursday, 23 April 2020. But it was a day when I felt the warmth of friendship, as a short email popped into my eyes. The mail said: Dearest Francis, reading your recent posts, I could feel that you weren’t very happy. How are you? Is it work and life challenges […]

I blew my top…

20 April 2020. Monday. I set up this blog to remind myself to love myself. And I have succeeded and I have failed. Especially when I felt that I am a fool trying to be the best myself, loving and kind. “Silence” is the best reply to a fool. As I look at this quote repeatedly, I noticed that I […]

Waking up amid all the noises…

16 April 2020. It’s Thursday, and coming to the end of another week. Slowly, I let go of my jealousy the moment I confronted, acknowledged and accepted it.

Understanding nothingness…

12 April 2020. Sunday. The world seems to have come to a halt slowly, as economy starts to slow down, non essential businesses are closed, many countries implemented lockdown which affected most people’s way of living. And Singapore is not spared too. It’s the fifth day of Singapore’s Circuit Breaker, kind of a lockdown similar to other countries. The number […]

Be myself…

06 April 2020. In Chinese, there is a saying that goes: true friendship will show during crisis time. The above statement is more applicable to individuals going through some kind of hardship and begin to see the true colours of other people. I think for every proverb, every wisdom, and every popular quote exists for a reason and there is […]

Too tired to write anything

05 April 2020. Sunday. Today, I am too tired to write anything. I guess these two quotes express my thoughts the most today. “I prefer loneliness over fake company” (errr.. I thought “prefer” should always follow by “to”?) “Arguing with a fool is like killing mosquito on your cheek. You might kill it or not, but you end up slapping […]
