Thankful Tuesday

I have been feeling lucky and blessed these past few weeks. There is a lot to be thankful for. I started thinking this morning that I wish I could do this and that.. that I should be in a position to do more things that I want... but then hey, I thought.. I'm just thankful for the little things I have and am able to do. I am thankful to be able to pay bills on time (most of the time). I am thankful to be able to bring the family out for a treat once in a while. I am thankful for every little job I get. I am thankful I can still dream.

I watched the documentary made by Singapore's Channel News Asia yesterday, reuniting the now famous mountain guide Rizuan with the young boy he helped rescue during the earthquake. And just watching how humble and generous and caring those guides were...brought me to tears.

We definitely have a lot to be thankful for each day..

What are you thankful for today?

Hello, Still Here.

Wow. It's been almost a year since my last post. Sounds like a broken record, huh.
Been itching to start writing again. Spruced up the blog's look. Hoping there will be more musings coming. It has certainly been an eventful year filled with joy, excitement, plenty to be grateful for, new hopes and dreams. But there has also been sadness, unexpected loss, shock and sorrow. Oh life, how you surprise us.

My heartfelt condolences to those who lost their loved one in the earthquake that hit Sabah on the 5th June 2015. What started out as a normal day, became a little scare when the earth shook for a minute or so at 715am. What I didn't know and imagine at the time was that it would take away those on Mount Kinabalu, on what was seemingly supposed to be a normal day for us and the adventure of their lives for them. 19 lost including school children from Singapore and 4 mountain guides who were full of heart and heroes to the end. May they rest in peace.
