collision of bodies

“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.”

hmmmm. guess later X)

japan ranting.

japan was last year. may 2010 hokkaido-tokyo-hiroshima-osaka-nagano etc
no earthquake, no radiation. just awesome ppl.

didn't blog abt it here though. supposed to be my travelling blog of some sort
then again, i've given up on ranting and rambling abt what actually happens everyday.
too lazy perhaps
life becomes too crazy if i look @ every detail


i rmb falling sick on e very eve before i set off. had high fever. was burning hell. didn't eat. nearly fainted. i missed graduation. i didn't get to wear the yukata.
that was basically e biggest regret of e trip.
i got to know my sis alot better. albeit e fighting n stuff made us a little more distant for a while but i guess we all learn after we bleed.

im thankful for alan's skype which kept me alive. i'm thankful that he was ard for me to talk to when i just totally didn't get my japanese.

class was ok. i mixed ard with boris alot. but in e end we fought n became e worst of enemies.
childish huh.
guess tt's how fragile we are
n out of my whole europe n japan trip. n only person i've survived well n had fun was with xiaoshan.
pretty amazing. hahaha

come to think of it. i do rmb a lot of things.
but i guess nt here. i'll bore myself off.

Going Home

Going home going home
I am going home
Quiet like, some still day
I am going home

It's not far, just close by,
through an open door
Work all done, care laid by
never fear no more

Mother's there expecting me
Father's waiting too
Lots of faces gathered there
All the friends I knew

I'm just going home

No more fear No more pain
No more stumbling by the way
No more longing for the day
Going to run no more

Morning star lights the way
Restless dreams all gone
Shadows gone, break of day
real life has begun

There's no break, there's no end
Just living on
Wide awake, with a smile
going on and on

Going home Going home
I am going home
shadows gone break of day
real life has begun

I'm just going home

the swiss

backpacking means waking up at 430am in e morning to cook ur own breakfast so tt u can eat at least smthing healthy n also because ure totally broke cus u screwed 500 francs wanting to give urself e thrill of ur life. i have officially 15 francs left for my accomodation tonight. dinner and breakfast i will cook from wadever i have left.

e swiss are really fanatical abt nature cus they have hiking track of all difficulties labelled out so damn clearly on e road u dun really need a map when u walk. nature is just so overwhelming is switzerland. e mountains e flowers roarrrrr

n u wldnt believe how happy i m not e see clouds today. it means my 100 plus frans is not spent in vain cus i can go to the tallest point in europe which also meanssss SNOW AND PURE WHITE MOUNTAINTS.

SWISS ALPSSSSSSSSSS

paris - london - home....

nature & us

if anything, i think e europeans are so much better with their conservation efforts than the asians.

in fact, they actually coexist with nature. e green parks with lush trees & cushiony grass which smells damn nice *ok i stuck my face to e ground & smelled it XD* is a great hangout for all students for studying or chilling out with a beer. ours are in a concrete buildings, canteen/library.

they love gardening, & if possible, herbs for garnishing food or for tea is always from the garden. ours are from supermarts, imported from where we wldn't care. & if one source failed, e govt wld always have other sources of foreign imports so it's e least of our worries.

so if u told them that global warming wld mean plants dying & crazy temperatures, it wld definitely freak them out more than it does to us cus it means a significant inconvenice to their lifestyle.

or maybe in a metroplitan city like sg where we have to specially make an effort to visit nature or when nature is confined to certain areas like parks or in damn ulu places way off e island ie chek jawa, nature to us is just another issue no different from that of the economic depression or if not of less importance.

e sad thing is tt we no longer see nature as being an intergral part of our lifestyle, at least e dependence on nature for food or for a beatiful garden where we cld sit there & laze in e sun is just smthing so foreign.

so maybe sg shld experience a snow storm... then will we know that nature is still e "mother" of earth. at least i can have e chance to make a snowman in sg too hee hee
