Autumn's here again, just like every other year. This year running a little late maybe, but still, it came.

For some people, it might be time for Nabe! and some maybe time to take out the heater! or maybe some, to take out the boots!!! But for me, it always make me miss my loved ones even more.

My family, my friends. All those who I hope could be here taking a walk in the park together with me, stepping through fallen leaves and having fun making crunchy sounds out of them, or maybe just sitting under a tree, reading a book or maybe playing cards. All in all, enjoying my favourite season together.

I wish someone could be here with me next autumn.

Girlfriends are like gems in life. Gems that brighten up your day when you are feeling oh, so blue. Gems that shine and accompany you when the journey suddenly becomes dark.

I never really knew how precious they were when I was back in high school. Of course, no doubt I always felt grateful to have such wonderful people in my life , knowing that they are always there for me, and me for them. Breakfasts on weekends, going shopping, gossips throughout the night, giving the people we secretly admired nicknames.

Back then, we were only a ring away. Now, we are a million miles away.

All scattered around the world. One in US, one in UK, one in Malaysia, one here in Japan. Though now, with MSN, we are just a click away. But, it's different. So packed up with exams (though I guess I am the only one now still schooling) and work and all other ridiculous things in life, it is so hard to catch up with each other! How I hope things stayed the way it was. Then maybe now, right this moment, we should be hanging out in bee's spa, spending quality girlfriends' time.

Hmmm. But this is life. If not for the distance in between, I may not have come to realise how important you girls are in my life. Thank you for being in my life.

Love you girls always. *hugssssss*

Am I being Japan-ised?

blusher on top of briefcase

I always found Japanese girls putting on makeup on the bus or the train something unbelievable. Something that I thought I will never be able to understand. Until today. When I did the same thing myself, while rushing for an interview.

And then I thought. Maybe it's not that strange afterall.

And then I thought again. Uh Oh. Am I being Japan-ised?!

And then I thought againnnnn. If I really am.... is it something bad?

Hmmmmm.. Are you Japan-ised?

Voice of an angel

Found this from a friend's blog.

Listen, and feel.

Slow down everyone, you're moving too fast

"♪...Slow down everyone you're moving too fast...♪"

Was listening to Jack Johnson's Inaudible Memories (I only play Jack's songs in the morning), when I heard this phrase. And it reminded me of an article my brother posted on his blog a few months ago. Supposed to be something from my other brother's girlfriend. The moment I read it I wanted to share it here, but I just never found the time.

Maybe it's time I slow down a bit too.

Win or lose?

"Sometimes you win, but you really lose. Sometimes you lose, but you really win."

Quoted from the movie 'White men can't jump'. If you haven't seen the movie before, check it out! One of the few movies that I watched when I was little and still remembers it. :)

Below, quoted from a primary schoolmate's blog. Found it worth sharing.

1. You backstab a friend to gain advantage ground for yourself. You win, but you reallly lose. You lose trust.

2. You retaliate to your enemies by constantly trying to hurt/embarass/harm them. You win, but you really lose. You lose respect.

3. You break a promise because you did think the person you promised to was worth your effort. You win spare time to yourself, but you really lose. You lose credibility.

4. You bribe a person of authority to get a favour. You win the favour, but you really lose. You lose honour.

5. You ignore your friends because you feel you need time to yourself. You win alone-time, but you really lose. You lose your friend's confidence in you.

The list goes on and on......

Try it. Before you make every decision, ask yourself.

"Do I really win?"

The Zahir

Since I am already signed in, just thought I should share this.

For those who are up for some reading, try this one out. The Zahir, by Paulo Coelho.

I find it a very good book. Giving a whole new perception of the idea about love. Not just man-woman love. But love as a whole. Teaching us the importance of really following the heart.

If you have the time, by all means, read this.


I am glad I finally am sick. Giving me the more reasons to sit down and type. It has been way way way too long since I had the time to do this.

Sorry to those who used to follow my blog. Sorry for the long break. I was lost and still am. I do not know what to write here.

Photoblog? Foodblog? Travelblog? I really have no idea. Maybe, I should just stop writing. But I find it too difficult to just give up this blog, just like this.

So, for the moment now, I am just going to write about whatever I like and whenever I feel like it. Please bear with me.
