mr postman街角的祝福

libraryNever noticed this Buddhist library before even though I’ve been to Melaka countless times. It’s along Jonker Street! A great respite from the heat and homo sapiens.

humansOur guesthouse is great for taking 凝视远方-ish 艺术照

In fact, Melaka is bursting with brilliant photo opportunities and it’s apparent from all the photographers – from the pros, to semipros, rowdy China tourists with DSLRs, and aunties with their compacts – that throng the place.

fishI love its white socks paws. And note the fish that Niki has very kindly drawn for Mr Meow so he can dream of them in his sleep.

I didnt know there are so many parallels between me and cats.. we’re all lazy, aloof, 想怎样就怎样, sleep-lovers and a little 闷骚.

I like how they always do things that amuse and amaze me; like snuggling into my bag to catch a catnap (he did it in such a  不慌不忙 and 名正言顺 manner that tickled me to death) and moving to my bed once I leave the room.

And don’t these vintage babies look good!

no20aMr Meow, Mr Meow…  Hope you’re eating and sleeping well..

no20Love this place – clean, comfy, and artistically-furnished with one resident cat!

But if you can’t stand noise, don’t stay here. You get Chinese pop, trashy English hiphop and Malay ballads nonstop from 10am to 1am, thanks to the clothing store and Malay bistro below.

Niki is going to buy the Panasonic LX3 and I’m sooo jealous!

我大笑了一声便开溜。

Been to heaven and back

慵懒 玩猫 漫无目的

丢掉手表 丢掉手机 摔烂电脑

酷热的天 冰凉的酸梅水

热闹的街 黄梨酥飘香

吃饱睡 睡饱吃

按摩 刮痧 被伺候

坐在床上帮猫盖被

走在街上都是气味

手指在快门上 颜色很到位

原来天堂是这般滋味

别把我摇醒 我还要睡

I swear I’ll twist the neck off anyone who attempts to hijack my weekend escapade to ___. Location is secret for obvious reasons. I have this ominous feeling that I’ve double-booked myself (again). But I’ll just pretend I didn’t realise.
I am going to spend a hundred bucks online; stop me!

Just live

I was scuttling through the MRT gantry that day when a random memory of myself being rabidly angry at someone hit me.

I remember I was ranting at the top of my voice to Dom, who was on the other end of the phone.  In full audible range of every passenger in that train compartment. I wasn’t angry at him; just at someone whom we were both angry with. (I think) I’ve never behaved like that in the presence of total strangers before, but I couldn’t care less.

After the memory struck, I tried really hard to recollect who that person was and what made me seethe, but I couldn’t remember a thing.

(Does it happen to everyone or am I just an outstanding scatterbrain?)

I’m amazed at how fleeting and forgettable little shitty stuff in life are. Shit happens. All the time. But do they really matter? All these seemingly catastrophic events and people that come in (and out!) of our lives. How major are they when viewed in the continuum of life?

We suffer so much less when we let go.
