It’s That Time Of The Year, Again!

What I’ve come to realise is that every time a year comes closer to an end, I begin to have mixed feelings. I start wondering what the upcoming year is going to be like? What’s in store for me? Am I ready for it? At the same time a pang of sadness hits me when I’m leaving behind the current year. It’s like it’s been there for one whole year and no matter what, I wouldn’t be able to go back to revisit my memories. Then what comes to my mind is what my significant half always tells me, “take one day at a time”. The past is ought to be changed as its gone, the future is still uncertain as it is yet to be seen. Therefore why worry about the past and be nervous about the future? Live for the present as it is all that we have now. I’ve decided to embrace each day as it comes and live it to the fullest. So I’m just going to t.o.d.a.a.t (take one day at a time). Thank you 2015 for the memories. Hello 2016, it’s nice to meet you!

Words Of Wisdom

“I wish to live a life that causes my soul to dance inside my body.”

What’s Brewing? 

The smell of freshly brewed coffee finding its way to your brain through the olfactory nerve and hitting just the right notes to wake your senses. What a feeling? Oh how I love the smell and taste of coffee. As much as I love them I’m glad that I’ve managed to keep my coffee addiction under control… Well at least I have less sleepless nights now. 😀

We are just spoiled for choices with the range of coffees available out there. I sometimes wish that it was just simple and easy. I mean it can be confusing at times especially for someone like me who isn’t an expert in all these coffee terminologies. I do know some to a certain extent but I can get it all mixed up at times.

Let see, we have the Espresso, Americano, Macchiato, Cappuccino, Latte, Mocha, Flat White. On top of that there is the milk… Whole, low fat/reduced fat, half and half, non fat/skinny, cream, soy milk. Oh and not forgetting the decaf. Phewww…well this is just sort of the basics. I don’t think I want to venture further. I’ll just stop here for the moment.

Ok let’s just go through some basic coffee terminologies.

  1. Espresso : A coffee drink made by forcing hot, pressurised water through finely ground coffee beans.
  2. Americano : Made up of 1/3 of espresso and 2/3 of water.
  3. Macchiato : Is a single shot of espresso with a little bit of steamed milk.
  4. Cappuccino : Consist of 1/3 of espresso, 1/3 of heated milk and 1/3 of milk foam.
  5. Latte : Consist of 1/3 of espresso, 2/3 of heated milk and about 1 cm of foam.
  6. Mocha : A variant of latte. Made up of 1/3 espresso, 2/3 skimmed milk with a portion of chocolate typically in the form of sweet cocoa powder.
  7. Flat White : Is similar to latte. Prepared by pouring microfoam over a single or double shot of espresso.

Looks like I’ve had enough of coffee talk for now. I still feel that there is nothing more satisfying than a simple Indian filter coffee or a Chinese (black/white) coffee. 😊

Aging Memories

A year from now, this will all just be a memory

A memory that I can look back upon but not return to

A memory that fades off as years go by

A new memory taking over the previous ones

Leaving no traces of the old ones to treasure.

Lost in Misery

Shattered glass, piercing through me.

While I walk away, ignoring the pain.

Leaving a trail of blood, hoping to be found.

My Mind

My mind, it never seems to sleep, forever thinking.

My mind, keeps wandering off, lost in deep thoughts.

My mind, it’s so deep that it is unable to surface.

My mind, finds a way out but prefers to stay in.

My mind, is mine but I’m yet to discover it.

Soulless Stranger

 I looked into the mirror and I found a stranger standing there.

Who was this person that I was looking at? I couldn’t recognise her.

I became worried. I tried to find myself inside the eyes of the stranger.

But all I found was an empty soul staring right back at me.

Never Ending Story…

 I don’t remember when was the last time I read a book/novel. I mean, I used to love reading books/novels. It was part and parcel of my life. I used to be so hooked to it until sometimes I stay up the whole night reading just cuz I can’t put the book down. At times, I even wished that the pages never ends. I guess life just became too busy for me until I couldn’t find the time to engage myself in reading. When I’m actually able to spare sometime to read, I find my mind wandering off while reading. I just find it hard to concentrate on the words and end up re-reading the same sentence multiple times. I guess I just have too many things on my mind that I have difficulty concentrating. So, eventually my reading habit just died off.

“Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”

~Plato

Now that I have time in my hand, I decided to rekindle my old habit of reading. Something that I’ve been missing a lot the past several years. I’ve saved several e-books many moons ago but I still miss reading a paperback. There is nothing like holding an actual book in my hands and flipping through the pages one by one. Anyway, I’m looking forward in engrossing myself in the world of literary. So books, here I come!
