day 2101 – celebrating my existence

the celebration of my birth with my family comes a day before because my parents are flying out for vacation. i couldn’t decide on a japanese restaurant, so settled with dai jung kum instead. we enjoyed a good dinner together completed with a combo with no shortage of food on the table – barbecue meat, seafood pancake, dumplings, soup and side dishes. i enjoyed the dinner very much, not because of the delicious food, but the opportunity to sit down and share it with my family. my birthday would never be complete unless i can spend some quality time with my loved ones that would never leave me behind

christmas day crept up so quickly. the holiday season is an amazing time to socialize, relax, shop, soak in the festive spirit, and most importantly spend time with people you love and cherish. i often wish there’s more opportunities to communicate with my family more. i try, but sometimes i just don’t try hard enough. this might be the season that matters most so i’m promise to try a little from here on. merry christmas and happy holidays to all

lately i have been stuck in a rut fighting myself, losing my sense of direction and not knowing what i want to do with my life. i would carry on and beat myself up, then question whether my existence is meaningless. that’s not to say i have figured everything out, but i have decided to stop beating myself up and believing i am worthless. point is, i need to correct those behaviours because it would only hurt myself and hurting myself is hurting the loved ones around me; i hate to see others get hurt. i do feel apologetic for being silent and quiet about my problems, perhaps i am not quite good at sharing my troubled thoughts. i don’t mean to make you guys worry. it won’t change overnight, but i’ll try harder to be more open and vocal about what goes on inside my head. it’s time to realize i am not suppose to settle to be an average person, just like the millions of other human beings on earth. it’s time to step up my game and live up to expectations and chase my own dreams. doing so is nerve wrecking, but that’s the only way to grow as a person and expand on what i have already accomplished. i know that whichever path i choose to take, i will have the support of those around me. i want the supporters in my life to know that i was born for a reason

receiving red pocket is pretty standard. making phone calls back to hong kong and regurgitating dozens chinese proverbs is pretty standard. but it never gets old just seeing their faces or hearing their voices on chinese new year. chinese new year is not about receiving the money inside red pockets, it’s about cherishing each and every special moment spent with the ones you love and can’t live without. embracing the year of the horse, i look forward to everything you have in store for me
