Many years ago, I heard from a friend the story of a man who didn’t kill a single person during the war. After hearing his story, I thought to myself “Is that even possible?” For killing is not a choice, but an instinct to defend oneself during the war, especially when one’s life is threatened. It seems impossible to not kill in war, but many years later another story proved me wrong.
Directed by Mel Gibson, starring Andrew Garfield who played the inspiring character of Desmond Thomas Doss in the movie Hacksaw Ridge.
I spotted a very interesting video on youtube, that talks about how to break “bad habits” I believe everyone, inclusive of myself have bad habits in us that we want to destroy it this year! But first before being able to break a habit you first need to ->
Happy New Year !!!! 2017~
Time flies~ A new year has arrived!!! What a bitter, sweet, salty, the spicy year 2016 has for me @@. I can still remember my second blog post that was talking about 2016 new year’s resolution and just in a blink of an eye, it is now 2017! I am pretty proud of myself that this blog could survive close to a year now. To me, blogging hasn’t been something easy to keep up, for it requires a lot of patience and consistency like running a marathon and writing isn’t really my forte.
Nevertheless, as I look back at my past posts in the year 2016. I kinda can trace back” My path of thoughts” for the year 2016. The happy, sad, exciting times and months during the year 2016. It is kind of interesting to see your own life as it made me remember the promises and goals, I made to myself and God.
If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don’t,
If you like to win, but you think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!
“Thinking” written by Walter D Wintle a poem who lived during the late 19th century to the early 20th century.
I was browsing through the Internet one day, doing research for a school writing assignment. The title of the poem attracted me so I paused for a moment to read it. A simple poem that shows a universal truth; the importance of thoughts. It made me realize that the strongest asset of mankind was also his biggest liability. It all boils down to how each individual sees it.
This post is kind of late, but “it is always better late than never!”A friend of another friend brought me here. (That makes everyone friends~) Hehehe. This is my first time visiting a Cafe in KL. In Singapore, I seldom step into a Cafe for a meal, simply because the food is expensive. I believe there are cheap ones too..But unless there is an occasion very rarely I will food hunt for Cafe.
I used to think like this in the past “Why are you like this? Why couldn’t you change?” I am always unhappy, unsatisfied and disappointed with people around me. “Maybe there are valid reasons for me to be like this.” I thought. “Or maybe things are like this around me.” As time goes by these thoughts sting like bees as they hurt my heart and brain and I find that I became more and more impatient…and unforgiving.
I thought again “I am not like this..What happened to me?”
I have been posting a couple of Little Girl’s illustration pieces on my blog. The last post I posted a proverb about”Drawing with a purpose“, I personally really like her drawings. Her illustration pieces are simple but show a lot of emotions and it looks fun! And that probably came from the cartoony approach that she is accustomed to. To put it simply -> Her style~ But might not be her only style, for artists always have variations of skills. One of the reasons I like her art work is also because of thick and thin lines. It is a variation of lines, so it doesn’t look boring. The character has very clear gestures that show the mood. “It looks simple but not so simple” to achieve at the same time. Hahaha!
Celebrated my sister’s “**” (censored) birthday at Tae Woo Restaurant. Famous for its Jajangmyeon (Korean Black Bean Sauce noodle)
This is my second visit to Tae Woo Restaurant, couldn’t come here often unless for special occasion purpose, because the prices of the dishes are not that cheap aka expensive. However, I would say, the food here is worth that price, and if you are having cravings for some quality Jajangmyeong you should try out this store.
Chance upon this Japanese animation film, while randomly surfing the net.
While feeling happy that this movie is screening in the national museum, as most Japanese animation films do not have the opportunity of being screened at all. It is pretty rare to have Japanese Animated movies in our cinemas, unless the movie is really popular. Gladly, riding on this year’s Japanese film festival 3 animated films were featured on its list of movies. (Miss Hokusai, The boy and the beast, the anthem of the heart)
