somewhere i have never travelled

somewhere i have never travelled,
gladly beyond any experience,
your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose

or if your wish be to close me,
i and my life will shut very beautifully ,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility:whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands



It is already the third day in new job! And also the day I officially terminates my employment!
So, it has been officially a week since I got myself down at this island country.
Yes, a small island-ize and gadget-ize world.

People don't ask "Cut already ar?"
They ask "Already iPhone?"

People don't say "Aiya, I help you do lar!"
They say "Please revert to someone someone."

They don't say "Aiya, stand for a while la, few stops only what"
They say "Why so many people? I need a seat!" even for one stop only.

People don't eat chillis, people likes bubble milk tea, people likes to go by public transport.
And their curry is sweet-ish.

And now only i realized that zebra line, is not for road decoration only, and you can have a plate of chicken rice for 2 bucks, you can survive a day with 5.

People don't have all those Diam*nd arr, N*SH arr, Amw*y ar, they drink from tap.

It's kinda hard to walk from CPF to HDB through JEI, when you just have no idea what are the abbreviations. FYI, this is SG you see.

World, world, what a world.

The Continuity of Another Fullstop

Ever since I was confronted for my capability, it has always be a pain in the neck when speaking of working life. It has never been pleasant.

I started to draft a different future.
I started to do wild imagination by casting a very big net, which led me to another totally different environment.

“It will not be easy”. I know.
“You may not adapt”. I understand.
But why not give it a try? I longed for a different working environment provided it must be in a good system. Good system accommodates productivity, ingenuity and motivation. It should not be as dull as the working environment which I have stuffed myself into for the past ten months. I have positive anticipation for the coming challenge.

Will I have a happier environment? I bet I do.

I Thank You

It has been already almost a year when i first took up the job.
I thank you for letting me know how Dog Eats Dog.
I thank you for showing how it's like when crisis initiates and terminates.
I thank you for all the pressure exerted on me this new freshie, for I know this is also the great opportunity for me to grow.

I thank you for all the guidance and enlightenment which you has brought to me,
all the joy, all the pain, all the sleepless night, all the unnecessarily tension. 

I thank you all.

All this time

I don't know what day it is
I had to check the paper
I don't know the city
But it isn't home

But you say I'm lucky
To love something that loves me
But I'm torn as I could be
Wherever I roam

Hear me say

All this time
We were waiting for each other
All this time
I was waiting for you
We got all these words
Can't waste them on another
So I'm straight in a straight line
Running back to you
