Love Love Love

We are all created differently.

Some of us believe that we can love more than once in a lifetime, but some of us don’t. Some of us can fall in and out of love over and over again. Some of us, on the other hand, believe that we can like more than once, but that we can only love but once in a lifetime. If love passes us by in this lifetime, then we would have to wait to love in another lifetime for we can only have but one true love in a lifetime. And so in this lifetime when love is no more, life will go on for us. We will keep strong. We will smile, we will laugh, we will just go on living. But once in a while unbeknownst to anyone, when thoughts creep in or when we see something that triggers a memory, we will turn melancholic, we will drop our facade and our smile will turn into sadness and our laughter into tears. Just in a little quiet moment, we will let our guard down, we will let ourselves feel, to give in to our emotions, and let those salty drops of water trickle down our cheeks. For only when we are completely alone, can we show our weakness. Just for a brief moment can we close our eyes and just be our one true self.

So do not judge a person by what you see on the outside coz’ we are all build differently. We all see the world differently. We all experience the world differently. We all choose to live differently.

The Roses are Red Series…

PicsArt_07-22-10.54.52Not too long ago, I went through this phase or a sudden craze of writing stuff beginning with “Roses are red… Violets are blue…” Blame it on Bobby Vinton. I’m such a sucker for oldies. 😅 Anyhoo, I did loads of nonsensical writing with those 2 lines and created quite a few poems. That’s what I call them. 😁 I wrote about anything and everything.  Each time it’ll just be a short stanza of 4 lines. So, here I am sharing some which I’ve written.

 

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
Chocolates are sweet…
And so are you too…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
You, my sweet babe…
Have a date with my boots…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
You’re so sumptuous
that I could eat you up in a scoop…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
I obviously have
a soft spot for you…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
I wish you would not
be such a big douche…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
When I’m with you…
I become such a fool…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
When I’m with you…
I go all cuckoo…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
Where, oh where…
has my sustenance gone to?

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
The other one said
I wanna show off too…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
I am such a fool
for sticking with you…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
It’ll be so nice…
to receive flowers from you…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
Shall we have
a playdate for two?

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
It’s time to bid…
a very good night to you…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
I would really like
to have more of you…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
Should we have
some more of you?

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
Why can’t I
have enough of you?

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
Come on over
and let us pujuk you…

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
Guess who couldn’t resist
saying good morning to you?

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
You’re so good…
I think it’s a boon!

Roses are red…
Violets are blue…
The Roses are dead
And so are the Violets too…

They Don’t Know…

They don’t know…

They don’t know…

That they are the ones who keep you sane…

They don’t know…

That they are the ones who make you laugh…

They don’t know…

That they are the ones who make you do crazy stuff…

They don’t know…

That they are the ones who keep creeping into your thoughts…

They don’t know…

That they are the ones who make you care…

They don’t know… They don’t know… They don’t know… 

They will never know…

Perfectly Imperfect

I am not embarrassed to admit that I am not perfect, I have flaws. I have my own quirky ways. Who doesn’t, right?

Sometimes I am hot-tempered and I can be stubborn as hell. I guess that’s why my nephews used to call me the dragon lady. My brother, on the other hand, calls me the communist coz’ I can be very hard-hearted at times. When I say no, I mean no and there’s no two ways about it! 😤

I am a thinker and I tend to over analyse stuff. But over analysing usually works in my favour coz’ the conclusions I draw from dissecting the facts are often true. However, there are times when it’s just me over thinking. 😁 

Erm, I used to be a very, very impatient person, but I’ve grown to be more patient. Gosh, you have no idea how patient I’ve become because of the situations I’ve gone through. Some might think I’ve lost my mind. But well, that’s just how I am. 😅

We always tell people to practice what they preach. I, for one can tell you I don’t always do that. I know that makes me a hypocrite, but that’s the flaw in me. Well, I’ve realised that sometimes it’s easier said than done. I mean we can tell people how things should be, but when we ourselves are in the same situations, perhaps we might also make the same mistakes. So, I’ve learned to limit my sermons. 

Umm, at times, I have a knack for detecting lies. I get annoyed especially when those lies are told by people close to me. You may think I’m clueless, but no. Sometimes I just act dumb on purpose coz’ I just don’t wanna confront you about it. I am smarter than I let on, you know. 😉

Some people say that I look fierce, a bit unapproachable. They say I’m trying to scare off my potential suitors. Ooh, really? Mayhaps. I think it’s coz’ I usually have my guard on. It’s not that I don’t trust people, I am just not used to being too friendly with people I’m not closed with. That’s why I usually try my best to hide my feelings and emotions. I’ll only really express myself if I’m comfortable with the person.

That’s another reason why I tend to keep a lot to myself. Those who I pour my guts out to can be counted on just one finger. That’s how tight lipped I can get. But I’m learning to let some of these stuff out. See, I’m even baring some of my own shortcomings here. The old me would never have done that.

Anyhoo, if I’m not happy with something, I’ll express myself. Just recently I got into a tiff with someone close for not responding to my communication. I could have let it slide, but I didn’t coz I wanted to let this person know that I was upset and so we bickered back and forth about it after I brought it to the attention of this person. I guess that’s just the way I am. The old me would have just suck it all in and keep quiet, but not the present me.

I feel if the person is important enough, I’ll trash it out. To me, it doesn’t matter whether the question asked was important or trivial, what’s important is that there is a response/ reply. I never expect an immediate reply coz’ people can be busy, but what I expect is a reply and not to be ignored. Why is that? Coz’ that’s how my brain works. If I ask a question, I expect an answer and if I don’t receive one, then I’ll go through a few stages of emotions.

Don’t mess with me!

Being me, first, I’ll worry, wondering whether the person is ok, especially if it’s a close friend coz’ I care. If I don’t care, then I wouldn’t care two hoots if there was a response. You could jump over a cliff for all I care. Next, I’ll get agitated, remember, I tend to over analyse. It really kicks in here. This will be followed by annoyance and then the horns will come out, I’ll get mad. And I really don’t like to reach this stage. When I’m pissed, I’m less nice. To that someone, if you read this by chance, don’t get angry,k. 😅 I know you didn’t do it on purpose. I just wanted you to know how I felt being on the receiving end. We are after all different and might not react in the same manner if placed in the same situation.

I used to keep everything bottled up inside, but nowadays I don’t. It’s unhealthy to suppress negative emotions, so I’ll let it out by confronting the person. It’s not like we will have a sparring match or anything. I’ll just bring it up with the person concerned so that he or she understands me further. I can’t stop how my brain functions, so a little understanding goes a long way for me.

I have many other shortcomings and I will still continue to grow and change no matter my age. I’ll never be perfect coz’ that has never been my aim. I would rather be imperfect coz’ there’s more fun in being a little devil than an angel. 😁

It’s all just a show..

You may think I’m cool.
You may think I’m unfeeling.
You may think I’m nonchalant.
You may even think I’m bold.

But the truth is it’s a façade I’ve perfected, a mask I wear. I don’t say or show you how I feel coz’ if I do that means I have to acknowledge my emotions and my feelings and that is something I’m not ready to do yet.

For now, I am happy in my make-believe little world. 😉

Cars, cars, cars…

If you have been driving a Honda City all this while and all of a sudden you are given the opportunity to drive a Mercedes, how would you feel? Excited? Constantly in anticipation to get behind the wheels? Perhaps for some.

Well, likewise for a few rare individuals if it was the other way around. If you have been driving luxurious cars all your life and all of a sudden you are presented with a Myvi, you might find the novelty of driving one appealing. For you, perhaps it’s an adventure, some kind of “fun”?  A chance for you to feel like the common person, perhaps?

Now what if you have never driven a car before and come upon a chance to own one. How would you ever choose? What would your criteria be? Looks? Speed? Manufacturer? Fun factor? Sometimes it can be a mind boggling decision coz’  it’s not like buying a shirt or a blouse. There’ll be loads of dough that you’ll need to invest in, so you’ll be cautious. You’ll survey, check out all that the market has to offer. Sometimes your choice might surprise you. You might have your heart set on a particular car, but you might not purchase it at the end of the day.

I still remember 10 years ago when I went to the Hyundai showroom with the intention of buying a Getz. Well, I came out with a Matrix instead! Hahaha… The thing is the Getz really caught my attention on paper, but when I saw the real deal, the appeal wasn’t there. Instead its’ brother, Matrix caught my attention. You could say we “clicked”, we made a connection. I have never regretted my decision. It might not be the handsomest of cars, but there’s just something very appealing about it. I can’t quite put my finger on it. It has served me well and it will continue to do so.

Anyhoo, I really do believe in the saying, “don’t judge a book by its cover”.  I know it’s only natural that we first see the cars paraded in front of us at surface value, but after a while, you’ve really gotta look deeper. You’ve gotta see whether the car is worth the money you are gonna spend on it. The car in time will lose its lustre, so it’s its body and engine that you’ve gotta pay attention to.    

Now the thing is cars might not be everyone’s cup of tea. Some might live this life without ever driving or owning a car. I don’t think we need to pity them coz’ perhaps they have decided on other modes of transportation, or it could be their time to own a car has not arrived yet. There’s no use rushing into an ownership just because everyone else you know has a car. It’s a big commitment. You’ve gotta be 101% sure of your decision coz’ once you own a car you can’t just simply change or buy another. Well, actually you can, if you have loads of money to splurge!! So, car shopping, anyone?? 😛

Word Power!

As the saying goes: actions speak louder than words. Well, sometimes when you aren’t in a situation to take any action, words will do just fine. They can be pretty powerful on their own. That’s what I found out today. 😉

SketchGuru_20141226222822

Honestly, I can’t believe what I said today. I’ve never ever done that before. I’ve always been a little reserve, not wanting to speak my mind out, but today, well, today was such a surprise, an unplanned surprise. This boldness in me is really intriguing; a daring step out of my comfort zone. It was kinda exciting in a way.

2014-12-26-22-41-25_deco

Today I became gutsy coz’ I was on a quest, a teasing quest. I think my words achieved more than what I bargained for. Now, perhaps that was the desired effect I secretly hoped for?? Hmm…. Perhaps, perhaps, just perhaps. Hahaha… 😛

SketchGuru_20141226222714

Anyhoo, I’m contented for now till the next round comes about. We’ll see what happens then. 😀
