When you feel like you can’t go on anymore, you need courage to even lift that right leg of yours up to the next step.

But don't make me choose.
Because it will be him. It's always been him."

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.

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

it will be me



oh how the world seems so unfair
creating a love that cannot be shared
as you go your way and I go mine
a light will shine
and it will be me

should not be disturbed.

well, words don't always mean what they say.
but anyway, i've said it, like you want it :)
...
i'm happy. i'm fine.
...
but just that today you gotta entertain yourself.
i'm too happy and i'm just too fine to do so.
so here's something for you to waste
4 minutes and 8 seconds of your life away.



uh, it's Jay Chou's songs the whole night/day through.
aren't his songs lovely~

what a day to be alive


(via ache)
a day when you start playing the 3rd song in your cd.
a day when you go to the god damn big field.
(where you feel like screaming you heart out.
but you just can't bcs of the ppl around. wth, right?
that's why i don't like humans at times..oh..pls forgive me but yea)
a day when you go out with your little cousins and your sis.
a day when you throw that thing which will make you happy when you are sad.
(i still don't know if it does put a smile on my face, but i tried.
i tried to smile but inside i cry)

a day when candles add to your cake.
(but you don't actually have candles to blow nor a cake to cut)
but, again.
What a day to be alive.
a day when you go to the little sisters of the poor, old folks home.
a day when you visit the orphans in st joseph's orphanage.
a day you teach the little ones to give and not just to receive.

a day filled with love.
yes,
What a day to be alive.

With love,
Jade

Bus ride

5 Nov 2009
I was waiting.
5pm sharp, my phone reminder rang. but it's ok.
everyone's now awake from the sweetest dream of all time.
i accidentally pressed the left button
but canceled it within a split second.
all i could do was to delete the 'task'.

My bus has arrived.
popped a Mentos in my mouth as i picked up
"Gift From The Sea" by Anne Morrow Lindbergh
from my very thorn big brown bag,
and plugged in to my ipod with my James Morrison songs all lined up.

Yup, it seems that there's 'a whole caravan of complications' going on. And i would 'want the windows open all the time and i don't want to worry about the rain'.
(some lines i took from the book)

Dinner is served. Chicken rice.
Oh! i ate it (fyi, you can never see me ordering this)
anyway, i didn't finish it.

*♪-Songs For You, Truth For Me continues*

I looked outside.
the clouds were so low. as if i could touch them.
i bet it's very chilling out there.
i saw mist among the hills.
i can just feel the coldness out there from inside here.
i warmed myself with my hoodie, the red one and my Jedi beside me.

An unbearable degree.
i think i was cold.
the cabin crew even gave me a blanket.
but before that, something warm blurred my eyesight.
all i could do was to shut my eyes.

Time continues ticking.

I reached my destination.
i slept early that night.

Jade

facing it

...seems to be hard, but it's the truth.
i just can't lie to myself anymore.

i just woke up from a really nice dream.
and i'm back in action!

my sister will be back and we have a lot of catch up to do!
=)

When in doubt, let your instincts guide you

*that's my fb fortune cookie of the day*
but the thing is i'm doubting my instincts.
so how? who'll guide me?

there's so much craziness, surrounding me
there's so much going on, it gets hard to breathe
-James Morrison, You Make It Real

Yet i'm actually stuck here,
nothing really going on,
nothing actually is surrounding me,
what craziness?
But it gets hard for me to breathe.
