Esther ur card in my drawer
leo_akita - 2 days ago
3:17pm Tues 25 April 2017
I was just reading the birthday card u made me some years ago. Be surprised I didn't throw away.
If u know me well, you'll know I don't throw away handmade things that people make for me (even when the relationship/acquaintance has ended).
Anyway. I mean to say that I am keeping the card to embarrass you in future. If one day, we ever meet again (probably not.).
It's a card made by a teenager who felt very real at that time that she was in love. It's a card that's like a time capsule of a person's heart.
It's something made with sincerity at that time. And it's something I never got. So, I am keeping it even though I am clearing my drawers.
It's very child-like & sincere. One of a kind. I meant to throw it away when thinking of clearing my drawers. But when I read your horribly tiny (insecure) handwriting (I had to go near the window to see your light green ink), I have decided to continue keeping it. If you ever want it back, I can give it back to its owner rather than throw it away.
It'll remind you of how you felt back then & you can laugh or smile about it.

Horizon Zero Dawn
Mahayana - 5 days ago
It has been a long time since I had been so emotionally invested in a video game. I mean I have always like playing games, but for a game to impact and affect me so deeply.. there really ain't that many games that can do that. At least in the last decade, none have been able to get me so hooked and emotionally involved. I liked The Last Of Us too, but as I didn't play the game, I guess the level of emotional attachment to the game is just not that strong
But with Horizon Zero Dawn, I was just so compelled to take the journey with Aloy, to find out her parentage and why the civilization as we know it has been destroyed. I want to understand why humans are living in tribes and machines roam Earth. Most importantly, I feel so connected with Aloy as she faces her own struggles being an outcast and constantly being the outsider, yet never gave up on humanity.
I am glad Aloy finally found closure when she found her "mother" although the ending was not the best outcome, it is as good as it gets
And I also thought it was fate that my friends recommended this new game to me and I actually bought this new release, something I seldom do because I like to wait for reviews and the price of new game to drop. The incredible thing about this open world RPG is that it is really cheap for the amount of content it offers. I am so glad I bought this game. It is Game of the Year material and certainly the best game I have ever played for the last decade. Thank you Aloy, Elisabet Sobeck for the journey and Guerilla Games for producing this amazingly beautiful game.
A Literary Time Capsule
ct_vision - 5 days ago
The beauty of keeping a blog journal is that I’ve created a time capsule I can look back on. I’ve definitely evolved, but there are still traces of the core elements of me. It seems there is a pattern to me. Every five years, I'd encounter some form of devastation. Five years ago was the last time I was heartbroken. I hurt for two months and regained my balance. After that, I ushered in a three-year era of the most dynamic boom in my career. This time, I went through the same "five stages of grief/ change" - Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance that dear Kübler-Ross coined. He sure is becoming a recurring name in my life. I’m presently at the tail end of the cycle at “Acceptance” and I’m moving on with my life. From the time I ripped the emotional band-aid off on 12 Feb 2017 and smashed my own fantasy of something that wasn’t, 10 weeks have passed. Doesn’t sound like much, but living through it felt like an eternity. I seem to take the same amount of time to heal as the last episode five years ago. But this time was a lot more intense. Perhaps it’s because I’ve never been more serious about wanting to be in stable committed relationship after so many years of not wanting to be in one. Perhaps I’ve realized I’ve wasted too many years running from the fear of getting hurt again. All that and suppressing of my emotions came at a hefty price. I inflicted so much psychological injuries on myself, when I finally truly let someone in, I was no longer strong enough to hold myself together as I did five years ago.
I’ve always known who I am and what I’m not. I’ve always known that I’ll be the Protector and Guardian of my loved ones. That my legacy will leave an imprint not only in my industry, but in at least this part of the world. I was born to change this world and anyone who tells me otherwise really doesn’t get it. And I don’t expect them to. Lots of people thought Jack Ma, Steve Jobs, Einstein, Elon Musk were conceited even insane at some point. I may not change the world as radically as they have, but I live in a reality and vantage point that not many do and I don’t expect anyone to understand what I need to do to achieve the change I’m looking for. Everything in life comes with a price. There must first be an action before a reaction will occur. I always take action, because I know no matter what I feel or how scared I am, nothing will change for the better if I stand still. The young girl that was has grown from a fighter into a Commander-in-Chief and I no longer have the luxury of licking my wounds for too long and feeling sorry for myself. Last Easter weekend, I hid away to try to make sense of my state of mind, body and emotions in a medical and scientific manner. Between resting my body and sleeping longer hours and cooking to nourish my body properly, I researched biohacking and psychological/emotional health. That’s when I came across this YouTube video on emotional hygiene and dug into the concept of psychological injuries. It’s time to truly heal and get stronger, but this time on the inside.
How to practice emotional hygiene - Guy Winch
Note to self: If five-year is becoming a recurring pattern, the next one to be mindful of is in 2022. My reactions MUST be different then to ensure a different outcome to prevent history from repeating itself.

Happy 2013: New Beginnings
Happy 2013 everyone. It's witching hour again and the new year brings new challenges. But I'm not caving in. Surrounded by friends who love me. Going to fight this feeling. 2012 was "Body and Mind"; 2013 is going to be "Pushing my Limits". I'm going to push myself physically, mentally and emotionally as far as possible. This feeling is just one of them. I wonder how far and how deep I can go. In 2013, I'm going to be bolder, faster, tougher, stronger. It starts now.
The Storm is FINALLY Over!
LOL...I'm back! Most bizzare thing happened. I've just woken up spontaneously after 4 hours of sleep. Had a drink of water, turned on the radio and Celine Dion's, "That's the Way It Is" was playing on air. Suddenly everything clicked! There really is a song for everything. LOL...Woohoo! I'm back baby! Finally feel fully restored. Feels like I've unwound time and reverted back to the self I've missed so much 5 years ago! I think the emotional roller coaster is finally over! I've successfully rode out Kübler-Ross' "five stages of grief/ change" - Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance. Re-reading my own blog postings over the last few days, I'd say this will be the final "Acceptance" post. (PS to self: Trigger could be the natural high from the adrenaline I'm still on after doing a media interview with Taiwan's United Daily News, and being re-elected. Feels awesome to have the affirmation of my peers after so much work and effort. Finally feeling like me again.)
Barely slept last night (1-2 hours at best) and tonight isn't hopeful as well. I woke up this morning numb. Logically, I'm physically and emotionally spent. I've been in a daze the whole day. My body is moving, but I seem to have woken up without my soul. I haven't cried in 5 years. I did last night. It was very scary, and confusing. I went to a place I swore to myself never to return. Now I feel nothing but emptiness. I saw a dark hole, took advice against my better judgment and jumped. Now I'm still falling and I don't see or feel the end. It's like I've been such a fool, even the devil wouldn't take me to hell.
I've always reminded myself and it looks like I need to remind myself more over the coming days:
1.I cannot lose, what I never had.
2.People come and go, what I build is eternal.
I allowed myself to be weak, because I'm human. But I need to stop making excuses for myself. There's been too many moments of weakness recently. The only person who ends up with the time bomb is always me. I need to be responsible for the people who count on me. I have other aspects of my life I truly care about. It's all nice and romantic, but it's time to come back to reality. There is nothing there. People like me don't have fairy tale endings. That's what stories are for. Its been 9 times! Why don't I learn my lesson already! Real life is unfair and I've always liked the fact that it's been unfair in my favour. People will fail me, will disappoint me and will take it all as they always have. I can no longer fail myself. I only have myself to blame for being in this current predicament. Time to pull myself together and keep moving forward. Been listening to Linkin Park alot more these days. Oddly, they keep me calm. Maybe because they verbalise the frustrations I never could. The song "Numb" has been replaying over and over again these last few days. Between feeling pain, hurt, scared, confused and weak, I prefer to feel numb. "I've become so numb, I can't feel you there, Become so tired, so much more aware. I'm becoming this, all I want to do Is be more like me and be less like you."
Picking up all the pieces...
What a whirlwind couple of weeks. These 3 days since returning from BKK, I've been flip flopping between feeling alright (ie. nothing) and perplexed. I shouldn't have gone on leave. I'm feeling more confused and uncomfortable with more free time to think. The walls I've built, cast in lead, have been totally shuttered. Who would have guessed it'd be crumbled by a force of nature...I've spilled the beans, emptied the can and kicked it around! Why am I putting myself through all these? I was perfectly fine and happy not looking back there again. Another sleepless night. Not sure if my insomnia is coming back...I don't know what I'm feeling anymore. For moments, it'd be fear, sometimes guilt, sometimes desire, sometimes I feel foolish, and sometimes disappointed with myself. I'm starting to realise why, but I can't seem to verbalise it. But it's so illogical. How can it be. It wasn't suppose to pan out this way. I shouldn't be feeling this way. A friend asked me recently, "what makes you happy?". I don't know anymore. I've done the right things that needed to be done for so long, I don't know what makes me happy anymore. As long as the people around me are happy, I'm happy. That's largely true. I geniunely feel joy when the people I love are safe and happy. But God knows that sometimes it's so hard when that sort of happiness has to come at a price. Maybe I've been conditioned to volunteer to pay that price. I've been told 9 times before, "if you love or care for someone, you don't necessarily have to be with them". That's true isn't it? If I truly love them, I should only want the best for them. For the first time in a long long time, I was truly happy. Just for a brief moment this past weekend. I know I have to let go. Only the best for the people I've come to love and care for.
