Rise - ASEAN Theme Song

There is a voice within my mind
singing the songs of distant times
Speaking the thoughts from lost horizons.

Music and words that must be signs
Shaping the facets that define
How we have come to be the present
Descendants.

Though we're from ten different lands
Bound by shores of common sand
Singing out as one
Let's stand
The world is in our hands

No matter where we're from
If we could sing one song
Dreams that are yours and mine
They will be realized.

Trusting the love we feel
Trust in the love that's real
Children unite
People of ASEAN
Rise !

Chapters unfolding from the past
Speaking on wisdom to my heart
Lessons to learn from our ancestors

Pushing horizons let's have faith
Our differences we will embrace
Shaping as one our common future
Our future.

Air

Different places have different type of air.
What I mean here was the taste, the smell, and the feeling or touch of the air.
Even the air at home doesn't smell the same at the other place.
It would be better if sometimes really go out for a walk.
Without thinking anything. Without having anything to burden you.

Back at home is just another happy thing to be cheer about.
I've been leaving home for more than a month, as the feeling to go home was deeper than the sea.
It's good to be home.

I just had my another briefing of the field trip for Ichthyology.
I thought i will have enough for it, however, we are required to have a look on fishes again.
I was desperately to have field trip for the last semester. But there were none. Somehow when I do not wish for it, it comes.

Somehow, when I keep thinking that i will be happy staying at home for 2D1N, without cooking, without rushing to church, without the scorching hot weather, I have my own private space (do i have one in my rented house now?), I can even lie down and doing nothing, no need to worry bout laundry, no need to worry bout the house chores, no need to stay at home facing 4 walls more than 16 hrs a day.
This is what you call as happiness.

All I can say --
Home Sweet Home!

Homesick

I've never be such desperately to be back at home.
In my past life as a fulltime students, all i wanted was just outside and away from my home.
My parents usually works in a long hour a day, which means that we have a little time to spend together. Even thou when they are free, they will have their own entertainment which are tagged "only papa and mama can go". This mean, interaction between our family member doesn't have much.

Well, it doesn't mean that i am expecting the WARM family which is you are taken care of your parents 24-7 or you are be brought no matter where they go. Well, i admit that sometimes i DO envy those child who being pampered so much. However, i won't want to be as one.

It is very strange. As people grows, they tend to get more attention. No matter from friend or from family, even strangers. Please don't tell me you don't. This is the time where you actually live as nice as you could however you do not really feel the warmth from anyone around you. This is why you will need a home.

No matter how those people at home care for you recklessly, or how they really ignore you, sometimes you just tends to bond with them, as if when the world meets his end you will want to be with them for the last few minutes of yours. When at outside, no matter how hard you be, there will always be certain level of ignorance where the people may not as nice as you think they are. No matter how close you claim you are to them, there will always be certain level of isolation.

No man is an island, go back to your home no matter how sad or frustrated is the memory of your home bring to you.
