Suffering From Success

This title is something borrowed from DJ Khaled. So conceited as it sounds. And I know you want to freak out and ask, “What? Is there such thing?”

In fact, there is. Take Miley [Cyrus] and Lindsay [Lohan] for example.

Let’s start with Miley. Three things. First, she was Hanna Montana. Then, she inspired me and the rest of the emo world for her “The Climb” number (imagine, 180M hits in YouTube). And third, she got all the other girls drool over the Ice-candy she had in her arms – Liam Hemsworth. Those are for the success part. Then, what happened? What’s with the hair and all those twerking moves and tongue gestures like some kind of hungry snake? We don't know the exact reason for all these breakdown. And for the record, anybody can do that without becoming notorious. But she is a celebrity; thus, everybody noticed such 'misdemeanor'. Poor girl! But whatever it is the cause for sudden change of attitude, I still love Miley.

I missed the old Miley

Now You See Me

Trust me, this has nothing to do with that movie starring Morgan Freeman about tricks and trickery released this year. This is plainly all about me re-appearing from that short hiatus of blogging. If you care, the reason I was out of this writing business for quite some time was because I’m trying to catch up with sudden changes at work, which I cannot narrate in here out of professionalism, and the thought of changing job too soon. But the latter reason has been refuted with one of the elders in our new church told one time in his sermon, “ everything there is reason, and God has reason of where you are right now. In the case of your job, God has reason why you have that. Do stay where you are, until God tells you to move.” And so I was kind of reassured to that. In God’s time-tested uncanny ways of putting us and removing us from where we are, I always believe that something extraordinary is possible.

Go Placidly

When Life Gives You Lemon

“But even if we don't have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.” ~~The Perks of Being a Wallflower

It’s not hard to think the logic between life and lemon.  If you’ve tasted lemon, well, it’s kind of sour-y and bitterly acidic that you may want to giggle a little bit as your taste buds touched the juicy part of it.  And just like it, life could be sour-y, or harsh at times. But what if life gives you lemon frequently?

'My Saving Grace' by Mariah Carey

I've still got a lot to learn, but at least, I know where I can turn
When I'm in my times of need
Just as long, As I know all things are possible,
Just as long as I believe.
