Never has Tashikani sounded so appropriate than now. T_T

Sayings worth remembering

August 16, 2007

The “Anyway” poem that was found on Mother Theresa’s wall has often been attributed to her, though according to some sources, that’s not quite true. The author, Dr. Keith, wrote it when he was 19. Here’s his take on the issue, and the poem below.

The Final Analysis

People are often unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered;
Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives;
Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true friends;
succeed anyway.

If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you;
Be honest and frank anyway.

What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight;
Build anyway.

If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealous;
Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow;
Do good anyway.

If you give the world the best you have, you may get kicked in the teeth
But give the world the best you have anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God;
It was never between you and them anyway.

To the people reading this, am I a strong person to you? Why yes or no? What’s your definition of a strong person?

Thank you.

Naoko is away!

June 16, 2007

Naoko is away for the time being and will resume her writing once she get back (Should be before 18 June 2007).

Where she went and what she is doing right now are currently classified, but I am sure she will write about it once she get back.

Oh and if you were wondering on who I am, I am her temporary out-of-writing-duty messenger as she had to leave in a hurry today.

Oh and for the heck of it, here is something to look at while waiting for her to return.

Penang trip summary

February 12, 2007

Cause I be lazy to write it out.

The trip was VERY worth going up for.

For someone who doesn’t know how to kiss, he picks it up very fast… and very well. Somehow being the uke once in a while seems like a pleasant prospect.

For someone who was emoing all the time there… *PIPIAK* WEI! I want an explanation and I want it soon. ^__________^

My lil bro didn’t make too much fuss about things, so I’m glad.

Spending time with friends laughing and forgetting the world outside this dream exists, priceless.

Realising that doing what I’m doing now is inadequate and taking steps to realise it? Frightening, but I’ve got to be honest with myself.

Sayang, I love you.


Religious extremism is back

January 25, 2007

You people out there who keep insisting that National schools foster unity? Here’s one entry to make you think again.

And for your info, I faced the same thing in PRIMARY SCHOOL. The ustaz actually said that Mother Mary had eaten a seed from heaven that made her get pregnant, and there was also something about boils (which I cannot remember).

So yes, there’s a real and valid fear as to why parents are NOT sending their children to national schools.

A reminder…

January 25, 2007

On GaiaOnline (an online website I go to), I equipped my engraved golden bracelet. I can’t remember who gave it to me (not sure if it was even myself hah) but I know I got it about one or two days after engraving had been introduced in Gaia.

I decided to check the message out today just to see what had been written, and it was a slap in the face.

“Remember to treasure yourself always.”

I’ll remember that. As long as I have that bracelet. I promise.


January 21, 2007

I’m very sorry to have neglected everyone. It’s just that this week has been extremely eventful (both personal and work) and I have not really updated as much as I should have,

Right now, I’m not quite sure of the path I’m on, but with each step I take, and each movement forward, I’m more assured that this may be the path I’m supposed to be on. I know that there will be mistakes along the way, miscommunications that will happen, broken promises (though never broken trust I hope *touch wood*) but always, I have companions I love and trust.

The first few steps were painful and bled my heart, but right here, right now, the blood has stopped flowing. The wounds have closed, and although the scars are still there, they’re a mark of honour, not a mark of pain. The inner wounds we carry are our own to bear, but that doesn’t mean that we should not offer a hand to those who need it. We may have our own answer to our own wounds, but your pain could help heal another, and together, you might just mend each other.

To love is sweet, to be loved, even sweeter. But to love and be loved by the same person, that’s the sweetest of all.

This nonsensical message has been brought to the letters I and C, and by the Number 3.
