The Power of Ice-Cream

Things that I’m grateful for today:

1. My love gently removed my hair clip he saw me asleep, which did woke me up a little but I fell back asleep again shortly after with a smile on my face. He is such a sweetheart who does big and small things that shows his love towards me. #love

2. After being reminded few times that it’s totally fine to charge my phone when it shows less than 20%, I did not do accordingly due to laziness or procrastination. So my love did it for me, and I woke up to a fully charged phone.

3. I read somewhere about “start your day by telling yourself it’s gonna be a good one” or something similar. I tried this morning to find out, this works MAGICALLY. The key is to treat the way how he wants to be treated, not the way you thought how he wants to be treated.

4. So I managed to accomplish something I wanted to accomplish two days ago. Although it’s 2 days late, but I’m glad I did it. Start with a plan and try to accomplish it. Having a plan is good. Accomplishing it is even better. Even for a plan as small as making cinnamon croutons.

5. My love accompany me lunch despite his tiredness after early reporting and lack of rest the night before. He did this for me, and I love to be that reason. =)

6. The load is super comfortable as well as the people I worked with. Amazing!

7. Ms Biew asekd me ‘What/who inspired your change?’ she asked, and without thinking too much, I answered ‘him’. Thank you for showing and reminding me that we could be a better person. Not forgetting my open-minded and supportive parents. Dad and mom embrace differences so we could be ourselves as long as we are doing the right things. Cheers! To the wonderful people around me! ❤

I wanted to make this a list of 10 but then I thought, there is no need to because this is not homework nor competition. The hyper mode has become charging mode. Need to recharge for another awesome day ahead!

I am really grateful for what is given to me and what I have. This may sound repetitive but I mean it. I will learn to appreciate everything even more regardless what size it might be, because everything is worth being grateful for if it does make someone happy. =)





(有一片报道是说李心潔在雲南遇到她生命中最珍貴的小黃花,「我仔細看着小黃花,發覺它們的花瓣是心形的,這些小黃花用它們的花瓣表達對這世界的愛,令我十分感動。」,但是我找不到心形花瓣!下次还真的要近距离研究… 不然,我们说的到底是不是同一个小黄花啊? 哈哈哈哈)

道路之所以变得多一点色彩,是小黄花的小小功劳,为繁忙的道路带来一点点的生命.. 啊不然就是只有汽车和引擎声(最近看太多台湾综艺节目,感觉自己有点在抄他们的说话方式… @@”)。



Life is a subtraction


Translation: Life is a subtraction; the chances of meeting only get lesser and lesser.

There is newborn every day.

But there is also death every day.

It is very easy to talk about life but when it occurs, how would you handle it?

So on this trip from Singapore to London, there was this gentleman, traveling alone.

He was seated on the other aisle, so I didn’t have much chance to serve him.

I’ve only learned about him from Van, my partner, who chatted with him when he came to the snack corner, that he is doing an Asia trip for his wife, who passed away recently. From San Francisco, Japan, Hong Kong, Bangkok, to London, then back to San Francisco. 29 days.

Then, he came to the snack corner for the second time. I went forward, and we started chatting.

I did not ask how. I couldn’t.

Instead, I asked how did they meet.

They were introduced to each other through a friend. It wasn’t loved at the first sight. In fact, they didn’t like each other that much in the beginning. But, you know, if it is meant to be, it is meant to be.

39 years of marriage. They have a daughter who is turning 29 years old this 29th. Apparently, they love to travel. He showed me some photos of her on his phone. From Paris to London. He said his wife loves Hong Kong. They had been staying in HK for years. And they planned to do an Asia trip together.

It was just, perhaps a less than 15 minutes conversation, but it touched both Van and my heart as he was talking. It was nothing fancy but we could feel his love towards his wife. A lot of love. And the love has been increasing every day. He is a proud and happy man whenever he talks about her.

As I’m writing this post, I somehow relate this gentleman with Mr. Lee Kuan Yew. His passing is definitely one of the saddest news to the world and videos of Mr. Lee are shared all over the internet. Mr. Lee was not only famous for being a successful politician, he was a loving husband who’d read poems to Mrs. Lee every night despite his tight daily schedule when she was not well. And it all goes down to one reason, LOVE.

Love has no age.

Love has no race.

Love has no rank.

Love has no gender.

And love has no time limit.


Love wholeheartedly.

Love unconditionally.

Love like there is no tomorrow.





而他,毫不犹豫地回答,因为我想保护你啦… 『不耐烦』



来过巴黎无数次的他,带着来过巴黎数次的我,两个像first solo,重游巴黎圣母院,罗浮宫,爱菲铁塔。




然后,就有爱心 soft boil egg喂到我口中。不好意思,我还真的是被宠坏了。


第一站圣母院。真的只是touch and go,拍了两张照片就,早午餐的crepe,他说带我去一间很好吃的… 但是,嗯… 他又说水准不如以前,今天就索性去寻找好吃的crepe… Lolz!但是,一天可以吃多少次crepe叻… 哈哈哈。

第二站罗浮宫。距离第一站不远,所以只用步行。穿过很多小巷,他凭方向感带我去。结果,他的方向感还真可靠的啦。=) 眼看旅客们都摆着一样的姿势…noob…哈哈哈,我们就小发挥自己的创意,至少看起来跟大部分的旅客不太一样。=D 在Rue De Rivoli [差不多是这个名字] 徘徊一下,找到之前我去过的Angelina,甜品是Mont Blanc。

他说,他 highlight of the day是看我玩团团转时掉下来,还坐在地上假哭,旁边的公公婆婆都转头看,然后笑着走掉。而我,没告诉他,我 highlight of the day 就是看着他每一次真心开心的笑,不管是傻笑,微笑还是大笑。 🙂

第三站,那个爱的坐标,爱菲铁塔。幸运的我们,还看到樱花树,在冷冷的季节里有多一点点的颜色。『唯美』 =) 傻瓜还傻傻的像小孩一样跳起来去採树上的果!哈哈哈,然后,我就知道,弹跳力这种东西讲,真的是天赋,不是每个人都有。哈哈哈。晚餐是超市买的汤,配『一路上有你』。暖暖的汤,加你和我,满满的幸福。『幸福中』




感激这个傻瓜愿意付出他的青春陪我一起成长,用时间和耐性证明他的爱。 =)

我也会用时间和耐性让您好好爱我!哈哈哈哈哈! 『得意』 =)





It was a normal reporting day, I bumped into a batchboy. Talked till almost minus 20minutes, I went into the briefing room. I can’t remember vividly but yeah, I think there is this man sitting one corner, the remote control corner.

Greeted everyone, I went to my corner. It was a normal reporting day.

Boarded the a/c, I was working in the same zone with this man, and while he was waiting for his supplies to be loaded, he helped with my all duties, like literally, all of my duties: the menu, magazines, towels.

It was another normal working day, but it was my lucky day, to get to work with this man in the same zone, sat next to each other for TTOL. (:

Then, first sector down. It was layover time, this man gave up his rest and relax time during the layover in London, to help me with my revision. We didn’t rest after the 14 hours flight (preparation for flight + reporting time + landing duties + talking in the bus for +/- 45mins in the bus are not included). We went to Duck and Waffle to have breakfast instead.

After a satisfying and pricey breakfast, we decided to take a short rest before the tuition. Short rest means, rest all the way till dark. Lolz.

After e short yet power rest, we grab a late dinner + early supper, and finally, the tuition started.

I just don’t know how this man made the tuition session so funny and full of laughter.

Next day, was supposed to be another rest and relax day for him, hunting for food he likes or doing nothing. This man chose to bring me to the usual crew joint and have lunch. [Did you just need a meal-partner or you do not wanna see me starve? Lolz.]

And then we found out we have this common friend. A group chat created, with his initial but didn’t know until like, two days later. 😛

Lunch done, revision continued. This man was there accompanying me all the time, although he was watching funny stand up comedy videos, he checked on me from time to time making sure I did not over stress myself. The revision ended with a one and a half hour stand up comedy video. 🙂

We didn’t work together on the return sector, but he came to our zone to help. Or to see me? Lolz.

Back to base, we shared transport, this man dropped me off first, AND help me unloading my cargo bag. I really do appreciate that, even though that was the lightest my cargo bag could be. The rest of the time is crazy.

Unpacked and rested. I forgot how and why but we decided to meet for dinner. We headed Starbucks for coffee and catch up with our common friend. He still couldn’t decide whether to go back hometown or stay.

Tired but not too tired, we decided to go home because it was past midnight and I have an early reporting tomorrow. The night ended, so we thought.

I am not sure whether is it the horoscope thing but we are quite crazy. This man said he would come over if I would come out. We ended up talking whole night as if there is no reporting the next morning.

Next day, busiest light load ever. Sometimes I would really rather have a full load so I know where the tiredness comes from. Anyway, the same man, who likes to cook, instead of going back to hometown, went market to buy ingredients so that I could get a taste of home cooked soup after my long working day. You have no idea how sweet the soup was.

And finally my official day off and his second day off, we went market together for the first time because this man wants to make Sarawak laksa for me. (: the preparation took the entire day. This man only uses good ingredients when he cooks and he takes care of every single detail of his cooking. The laksa was perfect. (:

Yesterday, my annual leave for the exam but he has a night reporting. This man woke up 6.45am just to send me to the exam hall and waited for more than 3 hours for me to finish. He kissed my forehead and wished me good luck. He told me not to give up easily. He told me to just do my best. And that was how I survived that 3 hours.

We then took a 73minutes bus ride to go back. You could see he could go concuss anytime due to the tiredness, but this man spent the first 30minutes telling me jokes.

This man never fails to make me laugh ever since the day I know him. It was like, 8 days ago? But he said he knew me for about 2 years. Yeah, we met 2 years ago, talked about something but I cannot recall at all. Lolz. But this man remembered. I think I just met the man who I could trust him with the rest of my life.

Thank you, ANK. 🙂
