A year older, a year wiser
well, that’s what I would like to believe
looking back, there are quite a number of things I’d want a do-over, but as these kids nowadays say, you only live once/you only get one chance
so I am glad that I’ve made those choices (some mistakes) in the past
This birthday, there was only one thing I wanted, and that was to blow candles off my birthday cake
I guess as you grow older too, you tend to want less material things but more things you don’t get to do very often

so birthday weekend for me was laid-back and I did all things I haven’t done in awhile
– sang in the shower
– played the guitar (and sang some more)
– watched ellen videos
– called the mum
– watched first auditions (I live for goosebumps)
– and woke up without having to listen to my alarm. bliss.

Being a brand new age, there are a couple of things/mindset that I’d like to achieve or at least have a mindset of:

No more worrying about what the future will bring. I know what is happening in the present, so live it to the fullest; this includes the degree, the job and the man. The degree is a work in progress and I know that if I play my cards right, I’ll get there somehow, it will take a lot of hard work but it will be well worth it in the end. The job I guess will come after the degree and yes, also a work in progress. The man on the other hand, is a bridge where I will cross once it gets closer. Right now, the bridge I think is way off in a distance so I’m good for now. Subconsciously, yes I use to worry, admittedly quite a bit but I don’t know, I feel somewhat at ease all of a sudden. Like I feel it will be okay in the end, I will be okay. Another thing is to pump up my self-confidence, after all we’re all human, having a bit of low self esteem and/or self-confidence is just some of our flaws. No more of these negative feelings or thoughts, just do what I know is best. For me. 

“Swim in your own lane”


Here’s to a new age, new year and new me. Amin.




  1. a forecast of a person’s future, typically including a delineation of character and circumstances, based on the relative positions of the stars and planets at the time of that person’s birth.
    “he gave lectures on astrology and cast horoscopes in his spare time”
    • a short forecast for people born under a particular sign, especially as published in a newspaper or magazine.
      “my horoscope said it was time to do something for myself, so I phoned Georgia that evening”
    • a birth chart (see chart).

do you believe in horoscopes?

I don’t believe in it per se but it’s fun just reading about it
so you know how there’s the daily, monthly and yearly ones
I read my 2014 virgo (or was it dragon) forecast last year
and like the weather forecast, it ain’t real
I am supposed to meet someone in august
well it’s september the 2nd
mr X you are uber late (unless you’re Malaysian and you’re on the way)
haha I kid
I’m a scientist, all this horoscope is just too abracadabra for my brain to comprehend

In other news,
I’m back in the lab = back to work = running around like a headless chicken
I won’t be able to breathe until the end of October
so many things to do, so little time 
current obsession >>>  dang, this guy has so much soul!
