Beautiful Sarah



This is my friend's daughter. Isn't she BEAUTIFUL?!
OK I want a daughter as beautiful as Sarah. Anyone out there wants to be the sperm donor? hehe...only the million armies I want, other things I don't want...

To make my own beautiful Sarah as perfect as possible the man must must qualify these criterias
1) must have the intelligence of Bill Gates
2) must have the looks of Tom Cruise
3) must have the heart of Gandhi
4) must have the body of Vin Diesel

ok, if you think you fit these traits, you can call this number : 1800-donate-my-sperm-foundation.

Essence

I want to sail the Gondola with you
Watching your face, beaming
With the light of the sun slithering through your lines
Of experience of time of sadness and all the endeavours
that you went through
that we went through

I want to sail the Gondola with you
To kiss you not only of passion
But for thanking you
All these years sharing,
What nobody else could do
Together with me

We have gone on the journey together
And we hold hands
Feeling them and reminiscing what it was then
Forty years ago
Holding hands made us excited
But now it’s you and me, leading each other
Hoping you’ll hold me for eternity
And we’ll be there to see each other
When we cease here to exist

Love no longer means bunch of flowers for me
But the petals to throw
On the bed of my remains
And to know that this love means more than just ‘you and me’

I want to sail the Gondola with you
Cos it’s a journey
Not only here and now
But in essence ultimately

Feeling, Nothing but a feeling


This is the thing about feelings; it creeps up unto you when you least expected.
It may be a good thing to those who are pleasantly surprised by the lightning bolt of that initial amorous feeling. But it may come unfortunately sometimes as that heart-splitting hitting dagger which can knock you out instantly. I’ve experienced both, yes, something that’s hard to control.

That’s the thing about feeling; I’m pointing specifically to love. This four-letter word coupled with the potent emotion can really make people do stupid, even self-destructive stunts. Oh yes, I’ve been passionate, relentless, self-sacrificial, silly, irritating, understanding, you name it, I’ve been there, done that. If in normality, I would usually be in total control of myself but this sometimes unwelcomed affection just have to creep up and make me do compulsive actions that would force me to open myself up and do something silly, which is not something I fancy.

I like to be in control of myself and that’s why it’s difficult for me to let other people in on my life. But when true and genuine affection and passion comes whiff by and linger, I hold on and don’t want to let it go (even when it’s time to let go). I don’t know if this is what others have been doing and I don’t know if this is right. Is there any right or wrong answers? I think the difficult and thin line is to love unconditionally or to love your partner silly!

I believe that the partner you are with or the one that you are not with are all pre-planned. Perhaps the ones that you lost were just not meant for you and perhaps there are good reasons for that. Perhaps the ones that you are with, are with you for certain reasons, perhaps even more important than just to be your companion. Actually i have told my past companions, that i need more than just a relationship. I don't know, maybe i have created a negative impression on them with that statement. Hhhmmm...But that is just my principle. Maybe that principle has also made me err in my judgement in some ways. I don't know.

But anyway, I strongly believe that whatever I do, I have to put in my best effort and especially when it comes to something as important as the love I cultivate in my relationships.
I do not want to look back and to think that I’ve let go of something or someone that is so precious to me and I just let it go without care.

I have to be candid about this, but it’s not easy to find a good person in this world, let alone a good person who loves you and whom you love back, deeply, and if I did, do, or will find him, would I ever want to let him go? You live only once and how many times do you really fall in love deeply, actually? How many missed chances were there? I don't know about soulmates, maybe i'll only know who my soulmate really is on my deathbed. Sometimes when you thought that a person might be your soulmate, but it turns out not. For some, it turns out right...

There’s always this cliché in movies “When you find that someone, don’t let it go”
Well….
But whatever it is, I want to make sure that I’ve tried my best cos, if it doesn’t work out, I don’t want to look back and regret on anything. No regrets but to learn along the journey.

AN INTERESTING CONVERSATION

Thought of sharing this with you guys.


An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, The Almighty. He asks one of his new students to stand and .....

Prof: So you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.

Prof: Is God good?
Student: Sure.Prof:

Is God all-powerful?
Student: Yes.

Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn't. How is this God good then?
Hmm?(Student is silent.)

Prof: You can't answer, can you? Let's start again, young fellow. Is God good?
Student: Yes.

Prof: Is Satan good?
Student: No.

Prof: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From...God...

Prof: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student: Yes.

Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Student: Yes.

Prof: So who created evil?

Student does not answer.

Prof: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.

Prof: So, who created them?

Student has no answer.

Prof: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Tell me, son...Have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.

Prof: Tell us if you have ever heard your God?
Student: No, sir.

Prof: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, smell your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.

Prof: Yet you still believe in Him?
Student: Yes.

Prof: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my faith.

Prof: Yes. Faith. And that is the problem science has.

Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Prof: Yes.

Student: And is there such a thing as cold?
Prof: Yes.

Student: No sir. There isn't.(The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events.)Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat. But we don't have anything called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre.)

Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Prof: Yes. What is night if there isn't darkness?
Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light....But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it? In reality, darkness isn't. If it were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?

Prof: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
Prof: Flawed? Can you explain how?

Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one.To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Prof: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.

Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?
(Theclass is in uproar.)

Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor's brain?
(The class breaks out into laughter.)

Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's brain, felt it, touched or smell it? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?
(The room is silent. The professor stares at the student, his face unfathomable.)

Prof: I guess you'll have to take them on faith, son.Student: That is it sir... The link between man & god is FAITH. That is all that keeps things moving & alive.
