Life in Circles VII

The short weekend diving getaway to Tioman was awesome and I have more new found diving kakis 😀 Go-karted for the first time and it was awesome too. Shaved off the side of my hair again, if you did notice. Watches are my new addiction and I bought a couple of them from various sites and stores. Seems like it’s time for some shoes online now!

So bro ORD-ed and it’s time for a family trip again. (Our last one was to Europe two years ago like WTF!?) The surprise of the century was that mum finally agreed to go full free & easy (no more package tour thank god!) and she actually proposed Krabi when she HATES the beach with all her heart.

Fear vs. Love

…in the decisions we make in this moment which are based on either love or fear. So many of us choose our path out of fear disguised as practically. What we really want seems impossibly out of reach and ridiculous to expect so we never dared ask the universe for it.
…You can fail when you don’t want, so you might as well take a chance when doing what you love.

To put down everything, go all out, and leave recklessly or to hold on to the current plan because it’s already.. planned. In the end, I still chose the practical and responsible (or you can call it hum ji) path. Jim Carey, you truly inspired me for that 60 seconds. However, it always boil down to commitments, and we keep thinking there’ll be a second chance.
