I Come To Know…..

i come to know that the feeling of realising things dont always go as we planned or wanted it to be is getting too familiar that it numbs the core of my heart of heart. sometimes failures lured us to be stronger and persistent while at the first bit of frustration we feel like the whole world is against us. people tend to talk about success all the time. success is sweet. victorious. i know. i’ve felt it. i’ve tasted it. and i stumbled. many times. have you? before you succeed have you ever failed? i dont know about you but i sometimes prefer to fail. or to lose. dang! this i discovered years ago in such tender ager of 8. where i purposely spelled wrongly in my spelling test just so that i wont get 100% all the time. gosh! am the only weirdo around?! see at least i have a story to tell. i’d like to quote JK Rowling’s powerful statement about failing ‘it is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case you fail by default‘ and i am not a cautious person.

i come to know that ‘i’m not ready’ is not the best answer to God. i realised some revelations and dreams about me is starting to show bit by bit (i think. i prefer to ignore the word perasan). and it makes me nervous. and scared. like fo’real?! *suddenly i feel a lump in my throath now sorry* God, what do you want from me?! T_____T and i am soooooo tempted to say the above statement….. but again “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9 aiya….. how want to lawan that?!

i come to know there are things that we want that we just cannot have or we just have to refrain from having / getting. i’ve learned this when growing up. when The Dad just could’nt afford to buy me an original Barbie Doll and when i cried so hard for a piano but just could’nt have one. and am grateful that i now know i could have all but i choose to be just being content for whatever i have. because i’ve learned the hard way. so as this new camaraderie i’ve found. it’s comforting and i am content for just being a part of it. as i try hard to soak up each fleeting moment in it i know at the end of the road i’ll see them turn into pebbles that leads to unspoken happiness. which in times to come makes me smile.

i come to know loyalty and patience come a long way…… and very romantic.

i come to know i actually like awkward moments….

be blessed, peeps!!

Happy Tuesday!!

with these songs recently….

#1 The Way You Are – Bruno Mars

#2 Secrets – One Republic

#3 Waiting For The End – Linkin Park

#4 Realize – Colbie Caillat

i’m attracted to ppl who is smart yet humble in appearance. ppl with quircky personality always get my attention. ppl who speak articulately *die* always melt me. and ppl who went study abroad but never forget their roots here in this good old malaysia always gain my respect. and those who still speak fluent bahasa melayu even though their tongues have tainted with accents which i secretly lust after especially that british accent (it is truely the siznich) always always impressed me. i love listening to ppl who speaks other than their mother tongue. eg: chinese who sings malay songs. like this guy here…. i adore….

talented ppl made my day…. especially love ppl who do cover version of the opposite sex of the original singer…. like this girl…. i heart…. i’m hooked with all those cover version on youtube….

and i recently found someone that i am happy with. i felt tingle in all my sensories everytime i heard the phone alert, which startled me. so, he makes me smile silly at my palm bb. he is kind. he is hmmm… kinda interesting. not my cup of tea but still refreshing. i like the way he says my name. in sms. in all the messages. in conversation. but that’s it.

don’t change.

so yeah. i’m hooked!!

be blessed. peeps!!

Sometimes It Has To Be That Way…..

quote

But sometimes we’re so focused on finding our happy ending we don’t learn how to read the signs. How to tell from the ones who want us and the ones who don’t, the ones who will stay and the ones who will leave. And maybe a happy ending doesn’t include a guy, maybe… it’s you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over, freeing yourself up for something better in the future. Maybe the happy ending is… just… moving on. Or maybe the happy ending is this, knowing after all the unreturned phone calls, broken-hearts, through the blunders and misread signals, through all the pain and embarrassment you never gave up hope.

Monday Musings

i’m finally back to labuan. after two eventful weeks in miri. both work and personal alike.

****************************************************************************************

i’m exhausted!

****************************************************************************************

and i know i’m depressed when i lose weight T______________T

it’s something i’ve come to realised and yet comprehend. mood swing and hyper-sensitive to the slightest changes in my environment and words spoken. all i want is to stand at the edge of a cliff and scream bloody murder and pour out everything that’s been bottled up inside which i am still not capable to identify. or maybe i knew all along but still in strong denial in fear more tears being shed! regrets haunt me on imperfect works i’ve done, disappointments creep in on things that are not up to my expectation and sadness fell on me thinking that i could do better. uncertainties and reservations once again flooding in. this ugly ugly feeling, i really despise you!!

****************************************************************************************

i miss my two fav ladies so much today. The Cousin and The Bestie. i couldnt be more happier that they’ve finally found their men and happily married *wipes tears* but then again i miss them heaps you wont understand……

****************************************************************************************

i miss running too. and i believe the botanical garden misses me too. i can feel now that my purpose of running has drifted to something else. from the beginning i was running towards my goal. to maintain and fit in those size 24 jeans and that skinny black tube dress. and now that i’ve got it!! i’ve lose those unwanted kgs and i’m happy. but now i feel like i am running from something. something only God knows and i couldnt disclose. something that has been tagging me for so long that i am again in such a mess to keep on denying its existence. Oh Lord, please help me with this!! T______T

*****************************************************************************************

distraction! i need distraction!! to keep me sane. to restore my senses.

*****************************************************************************************

i know this is an emo post on a Monday. but it’s a normal phase, no?

****************************************************************************************

In the multitude of my anxieties within me,Your comforts delight my soul.
Psalm 94:19

Come to me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

****************************************************************************************

and this too shall pass……

*****************************************************************************************

in time like this, i want to remember and treasure happy moments. retail therapy!!

fitting room actions!! and look at my pretty bling-ed cameraphone! nice or not?! :p

Happy Monday, peeps!!

GOTCHA-ed!!!

today when i was concentrating on my proof-reading work i received a call from a Private Number.

LV: Hello…

Male Caller: Hello, may i speak to Ms. Leanor pls?!

wow! he sounded very good. i mean his english is so good wih accent and all i was intimidated *shy*

LV: That’s me.

started to feel bored and annoyed cos i thought he’s from some tele-marketing company or credit card and whatnots.

Male Caller: I’m Jordan (or was it Gordon?) calling from Eastwood Valley…. (started to feel concern. ok this is serious!) and i am calling regarding to some unsettled bill for the reception last Saturday?!

puzzled and curious.

went to the pantry to listen to him more clearly.

LV: Ok, so what is it about again?

Male Caller: We are sorry that we have to call you. We’ve tried calling Mr. Alex and Ms. Fiona but they are not reachable so from our RSVP here the next contact person is you? you were the coordinator?

LV: Yes. They are on their honeymoon now. So what is the problem?

Male Caller: so the thing is Ms. Leanor, from our record here we found out that there’s one bill that has not been settled yet from your side and we…. (mumble… mumble… ) do you aware of this?

thinking hard what else could they missed out during the payment.

LV: May i know what bill are you talking about? is it on the accomodation or on the reception dinner?

(because if it is on the acco i am 100% positive the payment has been settled so if they asked for it i am ready on my defense)

Male Caller: It’s on the reception ma’am (Ok, now i felt this is serious) There were some people who drank at the bar and charged the bill to the reception dinner bill on that night. (or did he said some ppl ordered from the bar? anyway, it’s the same thing la) Do you know these ppl?

LV: No, i’ve no idea who but nobony is suppose to order any drink from the bar….

started feeling really pissed off the those irresponsible ppl.

Male Caller: Ya. But now that the bill is charged to Fiona and Alex. And since they are not around can you make the payment instead? on their behalf?!

started cursing (in my head) those ppl who were so daring to simply order drink from the bar. i started to suspect outsider who took advantage on the reception dinner…. #$@%&!!!

LV: Errmmm…. hmmm…. ok… (feeling so responsible on behalf of the couple there goes my RM T___T)

Male Caller: The total of the bill here is around RM500. So can you come here to settle it?

actually he has been repeating this many time in between our conversation…..

LV: When do you want me to make the payment?

Male Caller: Can you come today?

LV: Ok, by what time?

Male Caller: By 5pm. We will be waiting for you here. So please bring the RM500 ya. thank you.

LV: Alright. But before that can i speak to Chris pls? I need to talk to her…. (i dunno why i suddenly want to talk to the Person In Charge. Maybe just out of courtesy or simply because i want to talk to someone who i am familiar with)

Male Caller: I’m sorry ma’am but Chris is not working today. She asked me to make this call. But you can speak to my bosses here JJ and Ean….

heard laughter at the background WTH?!!

LV: who?

JJ & Ean: Hey, this is from JJ and Ean from Hitz.Fm. How are you?

OMG!!! i felt my face burning up to my head to the tip of my hair!! *shy*

JJ & Ean: you are on Gotcha Call on hitz.fm…. (mumble… mumble…)

LV: *SCREAM BLOODY MURDER*

more laughters!!! both from my workstation and the background on the other end…

T______T

LV: OMG!!! I CANNOT BELIEVE THIS!!! WHO DID THIS??!

JJ & Ean: it’s Harold..

more laughters!!

more nonsense from me…. i wasnt concentrating on what JJ & Ean were saying already. Malu!!!

JJ & Ean: so let us just finish this. we just wanna say…. GOTCHA!!!!

T________________T

laugh la laugh…. laugh till your teeth fall to the ground laugh!!!

OMG!!!

i still cannot believe i’ve just been GOTCHA-ed!!!

just yesterday me and my aunt laughed at those ppl who’ve been gotcha-ed and today……. it’s ME!! ME!! ME!!!

i just hope i’ll sound good on air T_______T

oh gosh!!! i knew my grammar flew out the window T_____T

and i regretted not saying ‘i love you both’ to JJ and Ean!!!!

Huarrghhh!!!

fyi, i am still in shock and very nervous to listen to it on air!!

@___@

::edit to add::

the conversation was more or less like that la, not very accurate one cos i panicked so much and got so nervous i couldn’t remember much of the details but the main point is they want me to pay the extra bill,

AND my gotcha has been aired this morning!!!!!!!

here it is for your entertainment….

see i am so good embarrassed myself for your entertainment T_____T

notice that the real deal was totally different from the conversation i post above?!! haha!!

moral of the story….. dont trust your friend!!

be blessed, ppl!!
