There are none. If you break your hand, you work around it.

Extreme Scenario: Train for when the zombies come. Do you think the flesh eaters are going to have pity on you and wait until you are full go to eat you? No. You have to be able to work through difficulties. (Ok, probably not going to have Resident Evil happen any time soon, but you might as well be ready.)

You have to adapt and thrive under adversity. Over coming difficulties build confidence. Knowing - not thinking or wishing or hoping - you can overcome what lift throws at you is the essences of confidence. Getting up one more time than you fall.

Anyone can train under optimal conditions. Any one can stay snuggly in their comfort zones. Anyone can go to their favorite bar and platform and perform. How about when the bar sucks, the ground is uneven and you have to perform? Character is developed by such adversity.

Just One Night

Praying hard that all goes well.
Calling on saviors and saints
And O Mighty
I seek thee...

Laughing Mee

You got that right.

HAR MEE. or PRAWN noodles.

Took my dear toyol for her first ever laughing noodles. From ordering it, to finishing it, she did with great heart. It wasn't the best noodles ever, whether visually or gastronomically speaking, but the point is, she tried, tasted and FINISHED it.

The spice of life is ADVENTURE. Explore new places, try new activities, taste different food and most importantly open your hearts to the world. For some, it may be an easy challenge, and for others, it's like HELL - cos it's WAYYYY out of their comfort zones.

Well, here's to more adventures and fun to come with food Eat, play and love people...:)

Workin' On It

I've felt the same emotions over and over again,
I try to dissect and comprehend the issues,
Yet I still tend to end up at Square 1,
However, a promise is a promise,
And I will do my best to fulfil it.

Challenges will arise,
We shall not criticize, contempt,
Nor be defensive, or stonewall
At least I will try my best to remember that.
And work on it.

Am awaiting the sunshine that will brighten our day,
I know this day will come...many times...

You always hurt the one you love, 
the one you should not hurt at all;
You always take the sweetest rose, 
and crush it till the petals fall;
You always break the kindest heart, 
with a hasty word you can't recall;
So if I broke your heart last night, 
it's because I love you most of all.

Un (un) scared (skârd): The Art of dealing with fear. You either train unscared or scared. All those who don’t take themselves out of their comfort zones are scared.

Getting Over You...

You know what I really appreciate about Jack? 

He seeks to understands.
He cares.
He is flexible.

The first thing anyone needs in a relationship is to be able to trust a person. If I say I'll keep my word, I'll keep it. Then, the allowance of time away from each other. Everyone should be entitled to their own time. Partners should not demand time from their partners. Allowing one to have their own "personal time" is crucial to reflect, regain focus and to address any pending needs
The last thing anyone needs, is a clingy, complaining, childish brat who constantly seeks attention. 

I am blessed to have him as my companion. For I know he will not bail on me. Vice versa.

Jack's my man. Don't mess with him.

Where all cash meets,
Excited over these kinda shoes,
Pray hard for no booboos!

Stay safe
Keep calm
Think less

And pop goes the weasel!

Please be early!

Today, I had to highlight to someone that that person was late.

I dreaded the moment that arrived in the car. Just had to open my mouth and speak out. Else I'd get upset and give the silent treatment(which i hate). I always believe in being honest, but being direct to the point is another thing. Unlike some other people, I really, really, don't like to tell someone what they were "wrong" at. Rather, what they could improve on.

The one thing I do not accept is being late. That's being disrespectful to the other party. I will always be ready by the time my pick up arrives cos I don't ever want them to wait. If they are early, I'll be ready. If they are late, that's SO NOT COOL!

Some people, always have excuses why they are late. If you are told 3pm, then be there by 2:59pm. Anything past the agreed time is LATE. (don't you daaaare justify that statement.....can't go wrong there.) If you are sincere to the party you agreed to, you WILL try your best to be there earlier than time.

So, ask yourself, have you been honest with your time?
Are you committed to be punctual?
Do you care enough for the other party? or it's just about you?

Here's to earlier days and respect for one another's time. :)

P.S: To Ms Squarepants, thanks for always being ready-to-go when I come by your place! :)

Demonstrating strength


Defer to others

Avoid shortcuts

Tell the truth

Offer kindness

Seek alliances

Volunteer to take the short straw

Choose the long-term, sacrificing the short

Demonstrate respect to all, not just the obviously strong

Share credit and be public in your gratitude

Risking the appearance of weakness takes strength. And the market knows it.

What a weekend this was! From baju kurungs to rainy nights, early starts and late makan sessions...most importantly, the company I had. Meaningful conversations this week which made me think about relationships and it's dynamics. As humans, we have different communication styles. For example, I probably would go "mmm...ok....yeah....sure..." if I do agree with something. Some others would go "YEAH! and blablablablablabla....." And the way we communicate, does affect the dynamics of the relationship one way or the other.

However, just remember the Golden Rule : Treat others the way you want to be treated...and we'll all be fine! :) Sometimes, you need to drop your ego and just say "Sorry, I made a mistake" (and MEAN IT!). Happy thoughts people :)

BTW, I went to a Malay wedding dinner last night and I realised I was the only Chinese woman in a baju kurung. The other Chinese women were wearing tube dresses, aunty dresses and one piece dresses. Wonder why don't they wear baju kurung?...hmm.... I felt like a popiah last night in the baju kurung! Getting into the car was kinda...erm...challenging... Haha!

This weekend, I was whisked away............

Early Starts!

Early starts to the day are amazingly challenging. I normally start my day at 630am and end at 12mn which means I get less than 4 hrs sleep... Occasionally I get to sleep in till 8am...or 830am...and that's the latest my body wants to sleep in! And so, the day unfolds...

The beauty of early starts? You get to make a difference in the lives of the people in front of you, and also you KNOW these people are serious about training. No wasted minutes!

What drives you to wake up early?

On a side note, I'll be heading down to Singapore this week to run The North Face 100! Can't wait! :)
