An old pair of shoes can be the most comfortable thing in the world.

However, the shoes have to be broken in to fit perfectly.

One will have to endure painful blisters and bleeding before reaching the desired comfort.

Well, that's it. New shoes make you bleed.

There is simply no need to 'metaphor'ise everything.

Inspiration? Well, m'new shoe's makin' me bleed, so I thought I'd enlighten y'all with this fact.

Reading a bad book similar to self mutilation.

Ever since I've gotten my kindle (still the best gift ever until somebody gets me a brand new BMW), I've been downloading free ebooks off Amazon.

But man, there are truly a number of crappy writers out there!

Last Saturday was a beautiful day which I unwittingly spent on a book I shall summarise as 'sh*t'. Why, I hear you ask, did I even finish it when it makes my eyes water with embarrassment for the author with each paragraph written?

Because I always expect some kind of twist towards the epilogue which will eventually make me sigh with content and think, "Well, that was not bad at all."

However, with this book, as I reached the very last word, I stared at the page and uttered "That's just plain sh*t."

What gives me the right to judge this book which may be a matter of personal opinion? It is because I myself have written a similar story filled with fanciful wishes and unrealistic romance. The kind of selfish thinking only a tween/teenager can conjure. Even then I was conscious enough to know my story was crap.

Storyline: A girl who thinks she's plain boring (but is actually really hot) gains magic powers one day. Having discovered her new-found power of farting butterflies when she giggles, she falls in love in a 6 foot plus hunk with abs (in high school might I add) who (surprisingly! 'eye roll') falls in love with her. Not very coincidently, her bestest best friend in the whole wide world also gains super powers so they can now read each others minds! Her best friend falls in love with the hunk's best friend and the couples make out in front of each other for half the book. Here's the twist, the hunk is actually a vampire who is very rich and can afford to buy her new clothes! The girls succeeded to make the whole school jealous which satisfies their inner bitches whilst being portrayed as the 'good guys' throughout the whole story. The end.

You may now puke blood.

On my way to work this morning, I unearthed my mp3 player and turned it on for the first time in a whole year.

After the first couple of songs, a familiar tune rang in my ears.

Have you ever watched a movie when you were really young, and then re-watch it when you're older? Did you have that "Oh my gosh! So that's what it actually meant!" moment?

Well, it happened while I was listening to that song. I have always loved the melody, but brushed past the lyrics as just another love song, despite knowing it by heart.

命中注定, 上帝说原谅你, 要我们黏在一起
还是爱你, 没办法讨厌你
命中注定, 上帝说就是你, 我想念你的呼吸
我只爱你, 姐妹说忘记你

As I walked along the pedestrian, I muttered a silent "Ohhh, I get it" to no one in particular. I have loved, and lost, and loved again (repeat cycle a couple more times). I know what the song means.

I love how it is God that decides our fate.

Grown up post

Damn all the wedding proposals and planning all over my facebook wall.

You're making me yearn things I'm not ready to stomach.

But there's the one which touched me to the core.

Why this particular couple?

I discovered Bubzbeauty 4 years ago, when I was desperate to learn how to paint my face with products. Since then, I've followed her through as I follow my favourite sitcom.

It's just strange, watching someone grow up and then realise you're really not that far behind.
