Help For a Broken Heart

Heartbreak: it’s definitely one of life’s most challenging changes.

Depending on how deeply one’s feelings were involved, one may be able to feel recovered from a breakup in a day, a week or a month. However, in the worst cases it may take many months or even years to fully recover from the ordeal.

Arctic Melody

Sitting, sitting, sitting in the moonlight

Watching, watching, watching as the world flies by

Drinking my mojito by the seaside

Thinking, thinking, thinking in that hammock of mine

Where, where, where am I going?

How, how, how do I know what’s right?

Loving, loving, loving the feeling

Of knowing, knowing, knowing that I am alive

Love What You Do, Be Who You Love…

This person is not flawless. This person is not perfect and yet this person is a person of immeasurable strength, infinite resilience and who exudes an exceptional loyalty, warmth and kindness only the few who look past the cracks will ever witness.

Being Rich…

…is not about how much you have, but how much you give.

These are the truly magnificent words spoken in the following Gift – Singapore Drama Short Film by Daniel Yam.

It depicts the heartbreaking but beautiful tale of a young boy who never appreciated how truly wonderful his father was until it was too late.

It carries a strong underlying message across to those watching that not everything is always as it seems and it is also a gentle reminder to all of us to appreciate our parents while we still have them. One day they will be gone read more

A Personal Note on Love

Love Note 2

Love is a strange thing. You can love your car, love your man/woman, love your sister, love yourself, love your xbox, love blue skies, love the smell of freshly cut grass… the list goes on and on. Objects, feelings, places, memories; you can love so many things and yet – how do you define love?

Is love a feeling? Is it an action? Or maybe even just a chemical reaction? Does it make you stronger? Do you need it? Is it universal or unique?

I have met thousands of people in my lifetime, seen million of objects, performed countless read more
