Days turn to weeks
Weeks turn to months
The atmosphere is mysterious
Yet the rays shines bright

Behold the power of faith
Lying deep, awaiting surface
May the journeys bring the hearts closer
And a vision from two.

Compile thy trust and belief
For the future holds strong
Rise and behold, time will tell.
Let faith lead the way.

"Everything in life is most fundamentally a gift. And you receive it best, and you live it best, by holding it with very open hands."
~ Less O'Donavan

"Faith is no irresponsible shot in the dark. It is a responsible trust in God, who knows the desires of your hearts, the dreams you are given, and the goals you have set. He will guide your paths right."

Keep Walking, Keep Walking!

Everybody's Changing, by Keane

You say you wander your own land
But when I think about it
I don't see how you can

You're aching, you're breaking
And I can see the pain in your eyes
Since everybody's changing
And I don't know why.

So little time
Try to understand that I'm
Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
I try to stay awake and remember my name
But everybody's changing
And I don't feel the same.

You're gone from here
Soon you will disappear
Fading into beautiful light
'cause everybody's changing
And I don't feel right.

So little time
Try to understand that I'm
Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
I try to stay awake and remember my name
But everybody's changing
And I don't feel the same.

So little time
Try to understand that I'm
Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
I try to stay awake and remember my name
But everybody's changing
And I don't feel the same.

Everybody's changing
And I don't feel the same.

If you would attain to what you are not yet, you must always be displeased by what you are.  For where you are pleased with yourself there you have remained.  Keep adding, keep walking, keep advancing.

I Shall Wait For You...

"Every moment of every day is better than the one before. You keep me from falling when I don't even think I can stand. When we're together nothing can break us, and when we are apart the world just feels smaller. Its time to show you whats in my heart and it's time to show you how wonderful life could be with someone you truly cherish. It's going to be a beautiful day."

~Charles & Alli

Congrats and God bless you both!

Consistency = Results

You can have good gym can have bad gym days...
Everyone has them.
You may not see results from today,
What's important is that you have A gym day!
Results will follow through!

In any team sport, the best teams have consistency and chemistry.

Wanna put on weight???

Here's some stats on soda and sugar sweetened beverages:
  • 20 ounce bottle of soda = 250 calories, 16 tsps sugar
    • One per day for one year = potential weight gain: 26 lbs.
  • 20 ounce bottle sweetened tea = 210 calories, 14.5 tsps sugar
    • One per day for one year = potential weight gain: 22 lbs.
  • 12 ounce can of soda = 150-180 calories, 8-10 tsps sugar
    • One a day for one year = potential weight gain:16-19 lbs.

Conversations :)

We were out for drinks just a few nights ago, and we were talking about CNY and meeting up with the long lost relatives and friends and dealing with THAT question. Yah...hmmm..............:P

Well, we came to a conclusion that it's not about how long you are/have been seeing the person and neither the age matters. The important key is communication. Even after 10years of marriage, you would want to be able to have a interesting conversation with your partner. (Most Asian families end up not talking at the dining table, whilst the rest of the world catches up on the daily goss and news etc. Maybe we were generalizing but it is known that Asians are naturally more reserved.) 

Bottom line is, you should be enjoying the times, being with your partner. You may have differences in opinions but as long as it's reconcilable and both have understanding, then carry on. 

There're many schools of thoughts on this delicate matter and we could've gone on and on and on that night till the pigs turned red. What an awesome night of meaningful conversations and company. Thanks guys!

Anyway, I leave you with this quote on this beautiful Sunday:

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart."
--Helen Keller



Was a good day overall, till night came.
Was slightly disturbed at an action and a thought.
I know I did the right thing,
But, I'm not sure what is the response on the other side.

Oh boy, guess we'll have to wait and see.
Will fall either way,
But He will show the way,
And we will follow.

Pray hard that it turns out well,
Whatever it is, theres a reason for it to happen.
I hope the lesson is taught well,
As how it is meant to be taught!

Courage and forgiveness,
I need you tonight!
Be strong and be yourself!

"Courage is simply the willingness to be afraid and act anyway."

Eyes On Me

Eyes on Me (Faye Wong)
Final Fantasy VIII

My last night here for you
Same old songs, just once more
My last night here with you?
Maybe yes, maybe no
I kind of liked it your way
How you shyly placed your eyes on me

Oh, did you ever know?
That I had mine on you

Darling, so there you are
With that look on your face
As if you're never hurt
As if you're never down
Shall I be the one for you
Who pinches you softly but sure
If frown is shown then
I will know that you are no dreamer

So let me come to you
Close as I want to be
Close enough for me
To feel your heart beating fast
And stay there as I whisper

How I loved your peaceful eyes on me
did you ever know
That I had mine on you

Darling, so share with me
Your love if you have enough
Your tears if your're holding back
Or pain if that's what it is
How can I let you know
I'm more than the dress and the voice
Just reach me out then
You will know that you're not dreaming

Darling, so there you are
With that look on your face
As if you're never hurt
As if you're never down
Shall I be the one for you
Who pinches you softly but sure
If frown is shown then
I will know that you are no dreamer.

Determination, energy, and courage appear spontaneously when we care deeply about something. We take risks that are unimaginable in any other context.

Signs you may not be a CrossFitter

1. You check the web site or Facebook before deciding if you are working out or not.
2. You shave off reps and don't feel like a complete douchebag.
3. You text or talk on your cell while people are still working out.
4. You don't encourage, congratulate, high-five or otherwise support others.
5. You arrive late and hold up the rest of the class.
6. Your "joint mobility" consists of talking with lots of hand gestures.
7. You sit down, every chance you get.
8. You whine about not being able to do double unders, and never practice them.
9. You ask the trainer to explain the workout, 10 seconds after he just explained the workout.
10. You give anything less than 100%. (Leave that to other globo gyms)

Thanks to Crossfit Orillia :)


天后 - 陈势安
(清澈版upload by franklin)

终于找到借口 趁着醉意上心头
寂寞渐浓 沉默留在舞池角落
你说的太少或太多 都会让人更惶恐

谁任由谁放纵 谁会先让出自由
双脚悬空 在你冷酷热情间游走

你要的不是我 而是一种虚荣

若爱只剩诱惑 只剩彼此忍受
别再互相折磨 因为我们都有错

推开苍白的手 推开苍白的厮守
别再叫我 心软是最致命的脆弱

直到那个时候 你在我的心中
将不再被歌颂 把你当作天后

"The perfectionist in him kept him going from morning to night until he was completely satisfied"
Just gotta keep going till you get it RIGHT! Thanks 陈势安 for this valuable lesson!
The latitude of your attitude determines your chance of success. You can do it. You just have to believe it and keep a positive attitude towards your goals.

People come, people go.
Varied experiences and life stories.
Most importantly, your presence.
You've been a great friend and confidante,
Thank you...
For being who you are!

One day I may be meeting you and hearing how you've changed your life by saying, 'Farewell to Fat'.

Uber Unfit

Lousy play last night! Felt I was lagging and super unfit.. I could have played better... man, what a great night! The guys played splendidly...agile and powerful. Some good skill-plays and entertainment for the night. Yeah met a few new friends and got a bruise on my ankle. At least some bragging rights! Haha!

My heel spurs came back after the game early this morning. Was pretty difficult AND painful to stand up.. maybe it was a sign to rest... But, anyhow, I hope they go away. Far, far away and never come back!

Should I take a break today? *Ponders* Since I'm so kiasu and uber unfit, I'll just make the best of my capabilities and of today! Yeah! :)

"Here's what I tell anybody and this is what I believe. The greatest gift we have is the gift of life. We understand that. That comes from our Creator. We're given a body. Now you may not like it, but you can maximize that body the best it can be maximized."

Finally! The 28 is in my hands!

I am swinging a 28kg kettlebell!


You Wanna Buy an iPad?


Lesson Learnt

A very expensive lesson learnt today.
I will just suck it in and let it roll.
I won't ever repeat that feat again.
The consequences is exorbitant.
Apologies to my friend who was the middle man in this transaction. 
I truly didn't mean any harm in my questions!
Those of you whom I spoke to today,
We share the mutual feeling.
I so bet we ALL will be careful.

Let's just move on.
We've all got alot of things on our plate,
And this is not a productive one at all.

God bless all you peeps!
Thanks to you guys who understood.
Appreciate your time and care :)
