tiong bahru

Friday, December 21st, 2007

i wanted to blog about this earlier but was too tired last week, after a rainy 2-day photoshoot for work, followed by stairs at tiong bahru.

anyway, there’s this elderly auntie who stays at the top floor of the tiong bahru block we train at. when i was into my 3rd set, taking a breather at the 30th storey, i saw her coming out of her house. i was so happy to see her, coz she’s always been v nice to us when we train at the block. she would invite us to go into her house for drinks, or just talk to us to find out how we were doing. it really brightens up our training days because stairs is so monotonous and boring.

with my insanely-broken hokkien, we had a broken conversation, and as i said bye to her when the lift reached ground floor, i realised it’s the little things in life that makes me smile =)

to all the residents at the tiong bahru and toa payoh blocks which we train at, Merry Christmas and thank you for sharing the lift with sweaty, stinky us… hohoho =)

Can I be more than what I am now?

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”

– Marianne Williamson

All of us have fears.

What do we do with our fears?

Do we allow it to manipulate us?

Do we flee from it and let it continue to haunt us?

Or do we face up to it and give our best shot?

So far, my way of handling is to stand up to it.

No matter how badly hurt I know that I may be, I will still want to face up to it.

It is the only way to be free of these shackles of uncertainty, of the deep unknown, of the deep-seated self doubts.

Can I really climb Everest?

It is this uncertainty that drives me to take on this challenge.

Can I be more than what I am now?

THIS was on someone’s blog…..and I saw it only after I went shopping..

I just learnt that:
1. Americans make up 5% of the world’s population and yet they consume 30% of the world’s resources.
2. My computer is spoilt because of an insidious plan called planned obsolesence… Deliberate reduction of shelf life to create forced sales.
3. many products contain BFR (brominized Falme Retardents) and they are neurotoxins. I remember staring at my tent every morning cos it has a tag saying its treated for flame retardent….arghhhhh
4. The amazon forest is disappearing at a rate of 7 football fields PER MINUTE
5. 99% of the things americans consumer end up in the waste within 6 months.
6. Advertisements make u buy things you don’t for thought for a Copywriter…
7. Goverments should be by the people, for the people.
8. Breastmilk contains toxins too….food for thought for a breast milk PHD student
9. We’re on a constant treadmill of work, go home and watch commercials telling us to buy new things, going to buy new things and going back to work again to sustain the purchase.
10. Our world would be happier if there were more thrift values and became less comsumeristic

make me a farmer’s wife anytime…..
