bits and pieces of this and that, here and there

God gives us chances. lots of chances. everytime one door closes. another opens. u lose some u win some. you fall down.. and then u get back on your feet ready to move on. u realize, that its no big deal after all. really is it? what if the door doesnt open anymore? what is someone threw out the key? and what if when u fall u really really fall.. and u cant get up? i read somewhere.. i think its one of those jars with little quotes folded in it, a gift from a friend, couple of years back.. it says.. always look out for the rainbow after the rainy day.. and i guess if you're lucky.. there might be a pot of gold waiting for you on the other side :)

The other side.. we like to think that the grass on the other side, is greener.. perhaps it is greener, but what if.. greener doesnt make it better?

thaqif .. my eldest nephew has a dance performance at a mall in shah alam today. he looks happy. smiling from ear to ear. and i think he's graduating from kindergarten today...wonder what they've taught him and if they've taught him well. im sure they did.

i've grown up believing that... there is always something better, always.. will be.. and to be honest, im tired.. it beats the hell of me trying to keep up with better.. im tired of better. im tired of more.. but... i wont stop craving for it. and i'll always be tired of it.. because.. it can be really tiring.. but its what i live for.. cant just throw better away now can i :)

my space grows bigger as the day passes by.. and those tiny leaking holes, that sometimes empty me.. i'll be sure to fix it up.. plaster it with cold hard cement or some thing like that.. decorate it with pink and red hearts perhaps.

there are secrets that we still have left to find
there have been mysteries from the beginning of time
there are answers we're not wise enough to see

five for fighting [the riddle]

Sometimes better can be bitter... It is ironic how sometimes profundity can breed feelings of inner scarcity. Sometimes the silent, unspoken word speaks more meaning than long conversations in vain. A friend once told me that music is the silence between notes. I guess you could say, in the same vein, that the trick lies in knowing what NOT to do sometimes rather than doing more. I'm sure you will agree that the food tastes better at night in Ramadhan precisely because we don't get it during the day...

Hey...Thanks for visiting my blog! Really appreciate that!

Love this post.

From my point of view, we seldom appreciate our own life. Our own self. We tend to think that "the grass is always greener on other side"...But then again, the desire and craving to be better will lead us to become a more fulfilled human being.

Life is full of bumpy roads and that is what makes it fun. These little holes in our life will make us become a better person. I guess it is like lessons of life. Exploring the unknown is also part of this adventurous life!

p.s. Love your blog.
