Static Mobility

An old lady in a wheelchair captured
my attention in the middle of the
hustle and bustle of the night market
in Petaling Street, KL.

One face after another walked past her,
while she sat and observed the world past by.


(this is my shot taken for the
"Canon's Powershot S90 Street Photography Challenge")

to err is human,

to forgive divine?

wrote this on my notebook on:
4.28pm. cloudy.
North-South Highway. Malaysia.
on my way back to Penang.

A month ago- As i was washing the plates while my mom
wiped them after dinner, she told me a story about a friend
whom she'd known for around two decades... again.
(i'm like her i guess, i tend to repeat myself...it runs in the blood)

It's a story I've heard for many times.
I don't know if it's others who look at her in a way (okay, a bad one)
or she has her reasons and her own stories to begin with.

I don't know.
But all i could remember was these lines by my mom,
"Who are we to judge others?
Everyone has their own weakness."


It's like what Zinedine Zidane once said,
"I would like it to end differently. But I'm human. I reacted."

we, humans have our weakness.
we, humans reacted.
we, humans make mistakes.
but
do we, humans forgive?

Oh! i just wanna be Happy!

So what if this world just throws me off the edge?


Everyone wants happiness,
no one wants pain.
But you can't make a rainbow,
without a little rain.

for once in my life

not that.

but...yes,
i saw a rainbow.
every time i see a rainbow, it's as if it's my first time looking at one.
i'm a very happy Jade when i see a rainbow.

i was finding for the other end of the rainbow, but could not find it.

i stood there smiling at the sky.
and my mom shouted back when i tell her there's a rainbow,
"Good Luck is coming!"
i continued smiling.

omg!
it's actually a double rainbow.
smile grew wider.
but i am still searching for the other end of the rainbow at the same time. found it!

i just stood there and continued smiling.
i didn't go to my room and grab my Buttercup
for i just wanted to enjoy that moment at that very moment.
for once in my life.

With love,
Jade

dark clouds vs beautiful white clouds


i don't really like these photos of mine but anyway,
i realized that after the dark clouds are gone,
the beautiful white clouds will soon come back.

and yes, i'm always searching for the silver lining in every cloud.

this is reality

after done with their drawings,
while waiting for their parents and playing lego,
the little girl asked the boy repeatedly,

"Can you please build me a time machine, please?"


it was 7pm, art class is now over.
but the rain is still not.
cats and dogs are still not over too.

cd in the car is playing.
*rain continues*
inside out. it's just raining.
the jam is deadly.
took me around 45 minutes stuck, in pain all alone.
the jam is deadly.
inside out. it's just raining.
*rain continues*
cd in the car is playing.

my head, eyes, chest, heart...from top to toe- just hurts.
i was shivering but my body was damn warm.
and the damn traffic was moving so slowly.
it all hurts.

reached home.
grab the red hoodie and covered myself.
asked sis and dad to take me to the doctor.
usually i don't want to see the doctor..but not yesterday.
i really can't stand it anymore.

doctor: 39.2°C.
jade: *no wonder*

dinner, shower, medic and off to bed.
grab another jacket, under the blanket, without the fan on,
i tried to sleep.
i couldn't.
the whole body was still aching- my head, eyes, chest, heart...

soon the medic works wonders and i'm knocked out.
and i didn't make it for lunch with the bunch of girls today :(

why sick? why sick at this time? what's my problem?
mom said i'll fall sick whenever i've got a problem.
so what's my problem now?
do i have a problem?

it's the weather! lol.


and oh.. there was no answer to the little girl's question,
and the boy didn't build her a time machine.

With love,
Jade

take out that mask, please.

it's not a stage play.
all you gotta do is be yourself.

“The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are.

You trade in your reality for a role.
You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask.”
-Jim Morrison

P/S: "curied" Morrison's quote from Khalid's blog. Thanks, Led!
P/P/S: his photos are SUPERB, btw! check them out~

see you again, perhaps.


Listen to the rest of the scores by Mychael Danna.
they're awesome! :)

What if he was here at this moment,
but he just disappeared in another.
He travels through time. To the past and never to the future.
Ok, maybe once. And he saw his daughter.

He cannot control when he will disappear.
And of cuz, you can't just sit here and wait for him.
He told her, "I never want you to spend your life waiting."
Because he just can't stay forever.

nothing in this life is permanent.

---
“The one permanent emotion of the inferior man is fear
- fear of the unknown, the complex, the inexplicable.
What he wants above everything else is safety.”
- Henry Louis Mencken
---

He's scared.
Yes, he is.
He wants safety. He thought the girl was it.
He thought she can secure him.
But again, nothing in this life is permanent.

so, i'll see you again, perhaps?

With love,
Jade
