I wonder how many of you actually drink coffee and enjoy the sheer delight of having the flavour of the pressed beans burst out in your mouth. Whether you prefer Americano/Kopi-O, Espresso in a demitasse or latte/kopi siew-dai, coffee just stands out as a strong drink as compared to tea. I’m not saying tea is soft and unenjoyable but the character of each drink makes it distinct. I would choose coffee over tea anytime simply cause coffee has that strong personality which matches mine.
Well, that took quite some time to change the subject to me. And no, this will not be a online log of what cafes or restaurants to go in Singapore (or occasionally Hong Kong) (and perhaps even Japan in the later part of the year) but a new place where I really wish to start posting my thoughts, storing them up in the brain or simply trivializing every bit of idea I have is consuming me slowly. I’ve had 2 other major sites where I previously blogged on, one abandoned and archived during secondary school years and another became a dumping ground of all things decaying and un-“beautiful”, unsightly would be the word. It came to a point where I had no idea what the acronym I typed in my moment of anguish meant and I realized, that’s good for I will start to forget all the hurts. Nursing them again and again will just consume me once more in a brutal way.
I haven’t seen many be faithful and keep posting on Tumblr but I reckon that since I visit this site the most frequently (not Facebook, Google being first, Gmail second and drama sites third), it’ll be the most pleasing place to journal and share as well. Hopefully, kind people whose eyes are reading this very ‘word’ will write to me and comment (if I ever understand how to allow that on individual posts) on what little I say or ramble about. So to pick up on what I mentioned earlier, my other Tumblr would be http://karmenthechildofgod.tumblr.com my refuge whenever I lack creativity or feel that the urban jungle I’m living in is so dull or when I just want to kill time and escape the dreaded assignments.
Hitting 20 hasn’t left much of a mark in me. Friends and acquaintances alike have all spoke their mind on how it shocked them into a life of responsibility where maturity is not only necessary but compulsory. Several even toyed with the idea of YOLO - You Only Live Once, and insisted that being free-spirited is key and no one has a reason to tie you down just because you’re twenty and going on twenty one. I’m not for either extreme because I see myself placed in the center since God knows when He opened up my mind to think and feel like an aged granny. I think He knows pretty well when… Probably when my own granny started telling me her thoughts. I insist on being thoughtful and responsible, yet I slip up alot because I think that we have to live out our life to the fullest. Carpe diem. You make some foolish choices, I’ve had made ALOT and anyone who denies making bad decisions is just a fool for thinking so. I’m going to hit the big 21 soon. 21 because it is THE legal coming-of-age in Singapore. Yet, since I am going to be in Japan on my birthday, it feels like I’ve come of age already since 20 signifies one has become an adult. From today till then, I’m probably going to live as free-spirited and God-honouring as possible and so this Tumblr, will probably be my partner-in-crime in storing thoughts and (ALOT OF) opinions, perhaps even personal experiences with God and His people.
Something I want to remember about myself:
I can speak English, Chinese, Cantonese, Japanese and few phrases in Korean!
Be blessed as you venture into the world & always courageously stand up for the people you believe in :) x
