Behind the Scenes

I was reading some news about Obama, marvelling over his charm and confidence when a thought hit me – self confidence is not a nature. It is rather, nurtured. I don’t think a person’s self worth and confidence come naturally. Well, maybe some people have the natural ability to shine and strut across a room […]

Daily Walks

The immediate effect of too much partying is – you are never more convinced that you are growing old because you can’t remember what happened at all. The best thing that came out of the hedonistic escapades is I got an awesome toy giraffe. It dances and bounces its head to my command and I […]

Simone de Beauvoir

Life is occupied in both perpetuating itself and surpassing itself; if all it does is maintaining itself, then living is merely not dying. – Simone de Beauvoir One of the most prominent female philosophers/writers in recent history, I think Simone de Beauvoir portrays someone that I want to be. Intrinsically. Some things changed along the […]

Personal Goal

On a whim, I have decided my personal goal of the day. I will write an entry for each of the category that i have defined for this blog, 4 months ago. Today’s category is “Miscellaneous”. There can NOT be anything easier to write for any other categories. Yet I am sitting here with my […]

The Year of Living Biblically

A documentation of A.J. Jacobs (a secular, journalist, liberal new york jew) who vows to spend a year living strictly according to every percept in the bible. There are a lot of strangely outrageous things you will have to do or rules that you have to abide if you were to live a life following […]

The Google Story

Don’t be evil. As simple, direct and amusingly wacky the google’s slogan seems to be, there is actually a bigger meaning behind it. The two google founders (Sergey Brin and Larry Page) are actually quite cute, not like the dorks I imagine them to be. Ha. If you have the abilities and you are confident […]

Heat Induced

You know what is weird? Privacy in this age. I have a private blog which i recently found out is not so private as I thought it is. After the initial shock and some mild irritation, i realised how pointless, naive and absurd it is – the idea of keeping things hush hush on a […]

Untouchable

She was oblivious to her surroundings. Maybe the rain was just a fiction of her imagination. She turns and swirls to the rhythm. The rhythm of her heartbeat. The sound only comprehensible, or maybe even not, to herself. She was smiling. No, she was laughing actually. It was the kind of laughter that exudes so […]

April Snow

A conversation with tingling coffee aroma, I try to grasp the fleeting moment when the flakes of joy are dancing through my senses. But like many things in life, they are not meant to be kept. I was looking out of the window when the wind started blowing. Dancing feathers curtained with enchanting white. Beyond […]
