Let Me Be Stronger

Sometimes, at times like this, I wish I am stronger.
I feel weak. I feel vulnerable.
Like my breaths taken away from me.
Like my soul ripped out from me.
Everything seems like they're out of place.
Like a path that seems never ending,
When you've made yourself believe,
That your dream is just a few steps away,
Times like this makes you wish,
That you are stronger.
That you'll make everything right again.

My morning caffeine-fix!

I have a confession to make. I think I might be too dependent on my early morning cup of coffee. At times, I would just have no mood at all to start work, until I get a cuppa for breakfast. On a weekday, there are two places that I go to get my coffee:

The Kopitiam at Level 4 food-court, Suria KLCC
Here is to get their iced Nescafe. For me, it is so damn good and the taste of coffee is quite strong in this one. Occasionally, I would place an order for their iced Milo as well. These two drinks are worth drinking to their last drop. Not to forget, the iced Milo is Syeena's favourite as well. Well, she doesn't take coffee, and I know I won't be able to influence her to. *sobs*

Starbucks at Ground Floor, Suria KLCC
I am quite the regular here that some of them would prepare my drink when I am still in queue. They already know that I would say "A grande Vanila Latte, hot, to-go" at the counter. That really is a bonus as I don't have to wait a lil bit longer. To the baristas at Starbucks Suria KLCC, thank you. I have no complaints about them.

There was a funny incident on one fine day when after placing my order, I waited for my coffee as usual. When my latte was ready and they called it out loud, I grabbed the paper cup and started walking. (Usually, I don't hand in my receipt to them confirming that it is indeed my order as we are already familiar with my order and stuffs) However, this time the barista called me and asked for my receipt. As I  handed him my receipt, I had on me a very surprised facial expression because I had least expected for him to ask for the receipt. When he look up and saw my surprised face, I could tell that he was surprised as well. Maybe it was due to the stupid face that I put on, and maybe due to the fact he recognized me from my too frequent visits to their cafe. To the Starbucks barista, "Next time, I will make sure to hand in my receipts aite?".

Well, am not gonna take any coffee now, it's already 11.30 p.m. and in a short while I'll be off to bed before I get to see another cup of coffee tomorrow morning.

Hello 2011! Adios 2010!

Happy New Year!!! I hope it's not too late to wish that. As always, I have no New Year's resolution. I can't make up my mind on what to expect or what to achieve this year and in all the previous years. I'll figure it out later.

I want to talk about my 2010. I would say that it has been good to me. I have been close friends with some boys at work. We even have a name for our group (we're still kids at heart, forgive us please). Work has been interesting. It might have been a little bit too tasking at time, but I can't complain (wait, I think I did complain a lot, so to the people who had to listen, thank you. Your patience was extraordinary.)

I travelled a bit as well. Went here and there. Had some fun of course. If I have the time, I'll write more about them in the future. I am just too lazy to dig out the photos or trying to remember the details. Yes, I AM that lazy.

2010 is also about dealing with losses. My good friend's father had passed away. By the end of 2010, my girlfriend's dad passed away as well. My sincerest condolences go to them, and all the others who have to deal with the pain of losing their loved ones. I did remember saying to my girlfriend that death is about celebrating the person's life and all the good things in it. I wish and I hope that I have been strong enough for her. Al-Fatihah to Daud Abu Kassim. He is in a better place now.

By the way, March 2010 was a significant point in my life. I'll try my very best to make everything worthwhile. I promise.

It's about time

Yes. Finally. I am trying to blog. I know, I am so late to start. In fact, I had the urge to pour my thoughts in writing for quite some time. I guess it has been years in fact. It's overwhelming even to myself how I managed to continuously give excuses to myself not to write. I guess I am just good at it.

Skip that. I guess it's not that important. I am finally blogging and I hope it's going to be good. I can finally share with my readers (not expecting many though because I can bore you, seriously) whatever that I want to.

Note to myself: Please blog consistently. Consistency is not my trait. I am very random. Unpredictable. I will try to change.
