August's Rhapsody - Mark Mancina

The dawn is breaking
The tree burst it's buds
The warriors unsheathe their swords
Are we awake?

The noon is high
The flowers bloom at their might
The warriors are charging
Are we striving?

The dusk is setting
The tree is shedding
The warriors are at victory
Are we packing?

The stars are high
The tree is dying
The warriors are resting
Are we satisfied?
Or are we still at the beginning?

Unusual You - Britney Spears

I might have a distinctive style of conversation with people that I'm close to. To these people, I'm a bit tad sarcastic and insulting, but it has always been in a joking way. People that I'm close to would release that I am rarely serious and even the more rare that I get angry. But somehow, I misjudged, that I ended up being wrong, being blamed and having to swallow my pride and apologize. Little did I know that I was subjected to gossip and rumors right behind my back just when I'm away. I've always try my best not to create confusion, let alone to offend. I tried my best in avoiding further disagreement and arguments, but when i retreat, I was attacked from behind. Offended, I still decided it is best to leave things as they were for there was no point of me lowering myself to being a child to fight. I also do not find the need to change the way I am, for that is who I am. I've always believed that when we are at fault, the most appropriate way is to apologize straight away and admit the fault. There's no use for giving a lot of excuses to justify what we have done because it will just fuel the anger. Be straight forward and don't beat around the bushes, hoping that the other party will accept your excuses. I've learned my lesson.

Run - Leona Lewis

Ever since I was small, my parents would always instill important facts of life in me. One of them was that the mouth is given to praise, but not to comment and complain. But somehow, the world is not like that for everyone. For some people, all they ever do is to gossip, bad-mouth, and ridicule others. To them, that is the way of life that has always been. If it comes from a person who is still a youth, I would think that they haven't been exposed enough, but if it comes from a person who is mature, I would think that they degrade themselves and that there's so point of us to fight head- to- head with them, for it would definitely degrade us as well. For the community to acknowledge that, and for no one to rectify the mistakes done, that proves that the misdeed has indeed beyond control. One can be so ignorant enough to ignore the reactions projected. But as an outsider, we can never know what they are thinking inside, or feeling inside. We can only do our best not to step in their paths and avoid facing them altogether.

Love Letter of Great Men and Women

Beethoven to his Immortal Beloved:
you - my life - my all - farewell. Oh continue to love me -
never misjudge the most faithful heart of your beloved

ever thine
ever mine
ever ours

Catherine the Great to Prince Potemkin:
Can one love anyone else having known you?...
There's not a man in the world that can equal you.
I have given secret orders to my body- down to the last hair- to stop showing you the smallest
sign of love.
Oh Monsieur Potemkin!
What a trick have you plated to unbalance a mind previously thought to be one of the best in

我就是這樣- 劉力揚,TANK

The recent period was of somber news all over. 2 news of departure from the world, 2 break-ups,2 sending off from the airports. Time flies. 1 short moment, the other person was lively and living the time of their lives, the next moment, they're off for something better or not. We, in this world, are just living for the temporary. We are just borrowing something that we must return eventually, be it the world or the body. The purpose of life? To find out what are we, what are we looking for, what goals in life and to fulfill all the possible things, making it worthwhile. Shall we meet with the junctions, decisions are to be made and to continue on with the journeys. We definitely do not break down and stop being strong. Even if the crossroads seems blurry and foggy, stop a while and ponder but do not rest for too long. Time does not wait and before long, we will be at the end of the road. And that will be when we must return everything we've borrowed to the rightful owner but be assured that we have done everything we could and achieved all that we wanted to even though there's still others not achieved for we do not have eternity. This life is for us to enjoy and to prepare ourselves for the next life. Be joyful, fruitful and peaceful.

Fate. Such an easy word and yet it made such a big impact on our lives. It's how we say we don't believe in fate and yet we're subjected to it. It's how we say we determine our own fate and yet we walk down the path being laid before us. How can something so abstract and divine but able to changes our lives completely. A story that was told recently: A and B met each other through a web portal about 2 years ago. They exchanged contacts and have been responding to each other on a fixed interval for the past few years. Busy in their own world, they maintained their communication platonic and concentrated on strengthening on what they have built. After 2 years of communications and understanding, they decided that it was time to meet and face the reality world. Feelings developed and they realized after so many years, maybe they are the one for each other. But, reality struck and circumstances surfaces. B is leaving the country soon, and they have only a certain period to cherish each other. Isn't it ironic how we are being arranged in such a manner? Another story being told recently: C and D has been together for the past 3 to 4 years. They have been staying together. When first started, they have nothing. Together, they saved money. And they bought a car together with the money. Fast forward a few years later, C realized that after saving money together and having a better life, D was fooling around outside. Heartbroken, they broke up. Imagine living together with someone for the past few years only to realize that they are not the one. Such a impact and lesson learnt. It's all in a simple word that everyone understand but doesn't know how to explain: Fate.

不,完美- 李玖哲

A friend once said that, why does it seems that people only look on the ulterior characteristics in potential partners? Does it have to be the same age, same religion, same race or same area of expertise in order for both to be compatible and to be potential couple? Does it matter that the girl is older than the guy? Does it matter that the both are not from the same race? Or will it be a hindrance when both are not working in the same field? We are just part of the society after all, afraid of doing something out of the niche, trying hard to fit in the norm not realizing that we have closed off something that might be us inside. We are afraid of waiting for too long and looking deep into the person that we jump into the first person that is compatible on the outer qualities without looking on the inner qualities. We believe that once the outer shells is compatible, the inner jewel is just something to compromise and to polish, without knowing that even the inner jewel need to be found first from sand before being polished. We know that even if it doesn't work out, there's always other people out there. But what we fail to realize is that, the true sparkling pearl is already polished but hidden among the sands. What we have to do, is just to dig in a little deeper, look wider, and search more heartily. Does it mean that all of us are shallow even the higher our education is? Well, this is just a part of the confinement of the society after all and we are in the end, a member of the community trying to survive is the competitive world out there.
