My Beloved Mum

This day revealed to me that she still care. Although i didn't say in details, but her reply surprised and touched me deeply. Without hesitation she provide. It's been years since i thought shedon't care anymore. But her words today, that i'm still herson and it is alright. These words are so strong. I will remember it for the rest of my life. Deeply touched till i burst into tears gradually as she pat me on my back and reminded me to come to her if i'm in deep shit- something that i have  not done for a really long time in my life so far. I've been staying out and away from home for years now and she reckon that it's tough for me which i admitted in between uncontrollable sobs, as life has given me a hell of a bitching time recently. Something that makes me keep wondering how long can i keep this going before i collapse. Thank you, i've probably whispered this quietly but would like to keep this post here and dedicate this song to all the awesome mums out there.

Is this the end?

This one is not applied by me lately, but one year ago. Got called for interview, and the hiring guy wanted to make it this week. So here I go today.


Good omen in the morning? Great pull in a while. Chow pls show me the light?

I can't see the light at the end already nowadays, in a very dangerous situation, which is losing passion in what I do.

Well who doesn't? A rape victim sure is unwilling yea..or can the so called victim of circumstances be passionate about what they are forced into?

What I feel after the 1.5 hr session... everything seems pretty ok. I forgot to ask one pretty important question, how this vacancy comes about. Anyway, it's another leap of faith, if fate allows it.


#update: looks like i got a VIP session ahead even of Jobstreet post. It pops up in my inbox this morning, same company same position @@ guess some waiting needs to be done.

#update2: now i know why its been quiet. coincidentally i went to a customer's farewell dinner. he took a job there, the gap i hope i can fill in. damn, the rival is too strong. what to do. at least i figured out more or less what happened.

Finding purpose in life - shared by ck5453

Again, a good article re-shared by ck5453. Relevant to me now, kind of know what i wanted but need some luck here and there, and a little push of fate to get to that.

1. Follow Your Heart Not Your Head

You may feel unfulfilled or unhappy if you are currently stuck doing a job that your heart just isn’t in. It’s likely that you spend a lot of time at work, so dragging yourself out of bed to do something that you don’t enjoy every day can feel like a real chore.
Your heart is your strongest indicator of your true purpose and passion. So ask yourself what it is that you’re really interested in and love doing. Landing a job in something that you’re passionate about and that excites you will mean you are naturally more joyful and motivated to perform to your full potential. If you’re unsure exactly what your calling is, a great place to start is to ask people close to you for their opinion.
It can be difficult and overwhelming to pinpoint our skills and qualities when we look at ourselves, but others can easily pick up on things that they notice. Be careful not to go in a specific direction purely down to what others think of you, but take note of what your friends and family believe that you’re good at, and use that as a starting point.

2. Make Memories Over Money

Many people live to work, when really we should all work to live. So it’s important that we don’t forget to do the living! Set time aside so that you’re able to do things for yourself, rather than focusing all of your efforts on your job. Get up early on your days off, so you can get out there and do you.
Ask yourself, what are the things that you really need to experience or accomplish before you die? Is there anything that you would hugely regret not doing before you die? If these questions do provoke answers, then gather them all together into a ‘bucket list’ or a to-do list, and make sure you do them! It may be that you want to travel a part of the world you’ve always dreamt of going, see your favourite artist in concert, climb a mountain, or run a marathon.
You may want to pick up a new hobby or learn a new skill, go scuba diving or skiing, or face your fears by going bungee jumping, cliff jumping, rock climbing or skydiving. You might want to go stargazing high up in the mountains, see the northern lights, trek through the amazon rain forest, or raft the Grand Canyon. The point is, if you don’t do all of these things while you can, then sooner or later it will be too late.

3. Build Relationships Over Possessions

You could have the latest smartphone, the flashiest car, the biggest mansion, and 10 holiday homes in the most exotic destinations, but unless you have family and friends to share them with, you will still end up being lonely and unhappy. You will live a far happier life if you invest time into building and maintaining relationships with your loved ones.
Stop watching so much TV, or allowing yourself to become consumed by social media, and focus on the real people in front of you. Always make time for those you care about, put your family first and forgive and forget. Although quality is sometimes better than quantity when it comes to friendship, you should make a substantial effort to nurture the relationships you currently have and always make rooms for new ones.
Many people believe that their purpose in life is to raise a family, and this could be something you want to do in order to fulfil your life. It could be that this doesn’t feel like an option for you, for example if you haven’t found the right life partner to have a family with yet, or it could be for medical reasons.
Instead of giving up if this is your dream, there are other options such as IVF treatment or you may choose to foster a child. Of course it could be that you simply don’t want children at all, in which case you will have a different life experience.

4. Don’t Forget to Give Back

Although it’s important to take from life what you can in order to try and fulfil it, it’s essential that you remember to give back too. Investing in yourself and your future to ensure all areas of your life are successful is key, but one of the best ways to seek happiness is actually through your service to others.
Perform kind deeds without expecting anything in return, and the rest will follow. You could think about letting others know how much they mean to you, by sending a letter or a text to one of your friends or family members. You could donate unwanted clothes or food to a homeless shelter, or buy a homeless person in the street a warm cup of tea or a meal.
You might want to volunteer at a charity, whether it’s walking the dogs at your local shelter, mentoring vulnerable children or reading to older people in care homes. You could also look at ways to fundraise for your favourite charity, be it a cake sale, a jumble sale, a sponsored walk or bag packing at your local supermarket.
Once you start to give back, you’ll feel a sense of achievement, knowing that you have helped others and made a difference which will make you feel valued and give you a purpose.
