Fate flows like a river…

Fate is something funny. At times I wonder whether it’s God or the Devil at play. 👿 Fate and destiny… I can honestly say I have no idea where I’m headed to. I thought I knew and then things didn’t turn out as what I was hoping for. God or Whomever it is just didn’t want me to have what I wanted. 😁 My road not taken ended at a dead end. Luckily there wasn’t a cliff there for me to jump down from. It wasn’t worth it to take the plunge, anyway. My life is too precious for that. I just decided to backtrack and take another path.

As for now, I’m just cruising along this path, taking in the sights and enjoying my road trip. I have my wishes, but I do not want to make them my be all and end all. It’ll just make this journey miserable if I keep pushing them to happen. I have no idea what He wants for me. So far, the stuff he’s sending my way are a bit confusing, but enjoyable as hell. 😅 It’s que sera sera for me now. Seize the moment! Live in the moment! I am my own adventure story!! 😜

Looking back at 2014…

Compliments of the season to one and all! Tis the season to be merry and of coz’ to look back at everything that has happened throughout the year.

Now, if I had to use two words to describe 2014, it would be “interesting” and “confusing”. I know these are rather common words, but they are the best words I can think of to sum up the year.

The year was filled with ups and downs, a real roller coaster ride. I went through two deaths in the family: my paternal grandma and my maternal grand uncle.

I’m still dealing with some unresolved issues which I hope will be cleared up in 2015. I really hate dragging things on. I think it’s high time I made some decisions.

Well, work was same ol’, same ol’ for the first half and then it went crazy gruelling busy for the second half. This year saw me taking on new challenges and responsibilities. Them white hairs are popping up faster now! 😛

Anyhoo, I seem to be constantly learning new things this year, especially as I sojourn into uncharted territories at work and in my personal space. This new knowledge has kinda changed my perspective on life and on how things are in reality. People can change and not everyone plays by the same rules.

We are taught to follow the rules of society and so like little good children we do, thinking that everything will fall into place if we do. For some, yes and for some, no. Perhaps that might create some frustrations in us. I know how that feels. We strive to follow the rules, but at times we might bend them now and then in our quest to fulfil our desires. Hence, I really do understand the saying that “some rules are meant to be broken”. 😉

Not only that, I’ve also learned some new stuff about myself, call it self-discovery if you want, and I am not done making sense of them yet. This “new” me has me in a conundrum as it really requires loads of patience, control and a helluva restrain on my part. At times, acting nonchalant is a real challenge especially when I get more and more involve. Some of these stuff I’m going through are things I wouldn’t imagine myself ever experiencing or venturing into. It’s exciting and it’s like a dormant part of me has been woken up. I seem to be a different person. Wow, I didn’t see that coming! I keep asking myself: “Is that really me? Why is it happening to me? Who knew I had it in me?? Not in a million years!”

2014-12-25-22-35-03_deco

As I said this is a super confusing year as well. My beliefs have been shaken. I seem to have more questions and self-doubts. I do wonder whether it’s a test from God or is the Devil playing his tricks on me, taunting me. Things used to be compartmentalised into black and white. Now out pops a grey area. It’s so difficult to handle this grey area. The rules are different there. In fact, I think I’ve kinda thrown the rule book out and am just creating my own rules. Let’s see where this grey area leads us to.

In addition to that, I’m also confused with the infamous four letter word: LOVE. You would think that a 30 something would know what love is by now. Well, I used to. I think I used to, anyway. What is love? I really don’t know what it is anymore. What does it mean to be in love? What do you equate love with? How do you know when you are in love? Can two persons be together without love? Can you love more than one person? I guess I’ve been watching too many dramas. Sigh… The stubborn bull in me is having a tough time accepting changes. The things that are happening around me are just making it more mind boggling. Perhaps it’s time to fall head over heels in love with someone to understand it better? 😛

Anyhoo, I’ve kept my promised to myself to at least embark on a solo travel once a year. This year I went to Taiwan and it was an awesome experience. It was a bleisure trip: business + leisure. I took the opportunity to travel to a few cities in Taiwan since I was heading there to present a paper at a conference in Taipei. Taiwan is indeed a lovely country. It’s safe, the public transport is so convenient and the people are pretty friendly as well. Hmm… I will never tire travelling on my own.

So I can say all in all I have had a colourful horsey year. I have no idea what plans 2015 has for me. There are bound to be great challenges and battles ahead, but I’m definitely gonna try to embrace them the best I can or rather grab them by the horns as the saying goes! 😉

2014-12-25-23-13-55_deco

Let’s all attack 2015 with full of gusto!!

Happy 2015 in advance, everyone!! 🙂

To be or not to be…. naughty?

Some of you might be wondering how come I’m writing so many posts all of a sudden this past week. Am I that free? No, I’m not. Work is actually choking me up. I’m constantly doing a few things at almost the same time. Multitasking comes naturally. Like now, I’m writing this post, chasing after my “kids” on Facebook for their assignments, responding to their queries on an up-coming presentation, editing documents and watching YouTube vids on TV as well. Besides, most of my posts aren’t written at one go. I usually pen down my thoughts on my phone and slowly shape them into whatever I want when I have the time, that’s usually before I go to bed. I make sure I spare the time for my thoughts coz’ expressing myself helps me to de-stress and unwind in a way. Alright, let’s get on to today’s topic of interest: naughtiness. 

There are all kinds of naughtiness in this world. We have the mischief maker, the flirt, the prankster, the foul mouth bugger, the temptress, the rumour-monger, the backstabber, the fire-starter and the list goes on and on. These are the ones who make our lives colourful.

Well, I’ve come to realise that there’s a bit of naughtiness in all of us.  It’s just a matter of whether that naughtiness gets unlocked or not. No one on this earth can be a goody two shoes all the time. We aren’t perfect and we are definitely no saints or angels. We are all flawed.

Sometimes this naughtiness comes knocking on your door without an invitation. You know, just like those door-to-door sale persons. When it appears, you’ve gotta ask yourself: “Should I? Can I?” No one has the answer to that question except you.

Be Crazy. Be Stupid. Be Silly. Be Weird. Be whatever. Because Life is too short to be anything but Happy.

But for sure once you release that naughtiness, there’s no turning back. For some it opens up a whole new world of excitement and adventure, for others it might bring about a can of worms. Splat!! You can’t be sure what would be unleashed.

Anyhoo, if you intend to spice up your life a bit, then, you’ve just gotta take that leap of faith and pray that you do not fall into the abyss. It ain’t easy. Things might not always go your way.  You might question your decision every step of the way. You might be at the top of the world one second and find yourself moping around the next.

This life we live in is unpredictable. It’s a roller coaster ride. We don’t always have the answer to everything in sight. We don’t always make the right decisions. The only thing we can do is to stay strong always no matter how challenging the path ahead of us is.

This life we lead should not be boring. We need to make it matter. So stop being afraid to let loose that naughtiness in you. You know you are dying to! Go right ahead!! 😛
