外國月亮比較圓 ?



Buda-Pest _ Hungary 2015


所謂外國月亮比較圓  
那是因為 你還沒有看到陰缺的一刻  
而生活真正追求的 不是 什麼圓不圓  
而是 知道自己真正要的是什麼  
那怕即使別人眼中的陰缺 
也會是 心中最圓的夢

February_Busy Month

Peschiera del Garda_Italy 2016

It has been a very month, I almost forgot how I got it survived. Apart from daily work in the office, I have to cope with my assignments at night, day and night non stop working.

I always think it is better to be busy than nothing, then there will be a sense of fulfilment and satisfaction after all.
Therefore I am glad that I am in the architecture field.

Time truly flies, 3 semesters have gone and I can't wait to finish the last semester.
I guess I've started to miss the working life. Many of my friends have been jealous about me to be able to further study and travel around the Europe. Well, there is a always price paid, perhaps only those who understand me will know how I manage all these things.

Travelling makes me realised the world out there is so much beautiful, and I want stay longer in Europe to explore a little bit more. I wonder the price to pay for a little longer will it be overwhelmed? It is just a matter of time as well as the courage and God's timing, perhaps I will leave here for good.

Let's see where God will lead me, I am pretty excited for everything that He brought to me as it is something always for my own good. I have travelled to so many countries and truly He has placed to in the right country which has most of the things I like.

The beauty of life is when you discover about yourself and you draw yourself closer to your inner self
be honest and truthful to yourself
live the best you can.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016





For The LORD has entrusted you, do your best for His Glory. 
It may sounds stressful as The LORD expects me to really work hard for Him, I do not want to fail Him and even if I do, he will never leave nor forsaken me, what a faithful LORD that I ever served. 

2016 is going to be a even greater challenge for me, a challenge for study, for future, for career, for travel but life trully has more to offer apart these.
I can have many aims and goals, I can achieve them one by one but after all, what matters? I know life is not about all these, the privillege of serving The LORD is what contented me and keep me going.

2016 no matter what will happens, what brings me, and wherever you lead me to go, I will follow no turning back.
In you, I surrender.

December 十二月 - TIME FOR REFLECTION


Be grateful wherever you go, whenever God leads you.
Do your best, be the best architect you ever be, to Him be the Glory. 

THE PARADOX OF OUR TIME

"We have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. 
We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. 
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. 
We have more degrees but less common sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet less solutions, more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little,
drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too
little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. 
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. 
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.
We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. 
We've added years to life not life to years. 
We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbour. 
We conquered outer space but not inner space. 
We've done larger things, but not better things.
We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. 
We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. 
We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. 
We've learned to rush, but not to wait. 
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we
communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships.
These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes... "

November 十一月 - Paris Attacks

 


Pray for Paris 


Indeed terrifying to get to know that Paris been attacked by the terrorist. Parisians are having such a great trauma, mourning and grieving for their great lost. 

My prayers go to the fellow Parisian, may the Lord comforts and give strong courage to the Parisian, who are indeed your grace and mercy upon them, may the poeple find peace in you as you said in your word  - 
John 16:33 NIV “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”    

Every time when I see all these troubles, natural disaster, human sinful actions happened, I know the end is just draw a step nearer. Lost souls are everywhere, we as a Christian must rise up and play our Lord for the glory of Him.   
Revelation 11:13 NIV " At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.  

I have not been to Paris yet and definitely it is a city listed in my wish list, in fact I already planned to go Paris in this coming Christmas, I don't know what will be happening by then, keep my finger crossed and pray for everything will be fine. Being alone far away from my homeland, I would think what if I never returned? My parents never agreed for me to further my studies, it is truly by the grace and the opened door the Lord has given to me. I have no one but only cling unto him, live by his strength that added to me.

Thoughtful

Switzerland, One time is never enough. 


My friend who recently want to explore the Eastern Europe asked me some advises on the accommodation and itinerary of the trip, it truly brought me back to the past memory I had when I was travelling alone explored the Eastern Europe.

For the whole summer, I have been travelling. This is probably sound extravagant, but definitely worth for lifetime. One time is never enough especially country like Switzerland and Austria in which I really want to explore again in future. Country that I haven’t been to, and pretty much wanted to go there are Germany, Northern Europe, United Kingdom, Spain, Greece, Netherlands and France, definitely want to explore before I return home.

I always ponder about this question, is this going to be my last year in Europe? Time is crucial because I don’t have much time left, seemingly much works to be completed in the final year, I am overwhelming by it. I am ambitious to learn, to experience, to explore and to travel as much as I can.

If God is willing, then I am ready for a greater challenge and purpose.

I surrender.

October 十月 - Life is fragile


San Cataldo Cementary_ Aldo Rossi
Modena, Italy 2015




This morning my heart felt such a great sadness when I get to know that you passed away. I remember very well that the last time I met you was last month when I returned home. You were very proud that I am further my study oversea. I said to you we will meet again after I graduate in the near future but
life sometimes doesn't allow you to do things that you want, being the moment and cherish the fellowship we had that's most important after all. 

Life truly is fragile.

Coffee Lover


This is the coffee I had with Tracey in the lovely Colereain Town, Northern Ireland
July 2015

I probably forgot since when I started addicted into coffee, it has became of norm of me to have at least a cup of coffee  day, sometimes two to three cups. Italy truly is a coffee heaven, I enjoy seeing people having their coffee break, fellowship and laugh over the table. 

I like the morning coffee the best, love the caffein smell came out from kitchen, the strong caffein spread the atmopshere, it enlighten my day. No doubt this is how to I started my day, a really simply breakfast and a cup of coffee. 

Most of the times I am the one wake up earlier before my flatmates. Very often I have my solitude time in the kitchen by myself. I will bring my Kindle along while waiting for the coffee to be ready I will read the daily bread " Jesus Calling ". This is a PDF version gave by a sister in Christ from States and in happened that I met up her in Milan few months ago. Now she left to other country, I only met her once and I hope that was not the last time. 

As I meditate the words, I always reflect and think my life was and is and is to come. I am always thankful for what the Lord has done into my life. For every single person that I met here, they are gifts from the Lord. I enjoy meeting new friends, friends from all over the world, to listen and to share the difference between us regardless it's background, culture, religion, and etc. 

"Not my might nor by power, but by my Spirit" says the LORD Almighty.  
Zechariah 4:6

September 九月 - No Turning Back



Cesky Krumlov_Czech Republic 2015

Travelling from Italy - Malaysia - Italy - Hungary - Austria - Czech Republic - Belgium 
I felt it was yesterday I just went back to my beloved country, yet I have been to so many places.
I felt my sister was here yesterday yet she left this morning. 
I felt I need more events in life to draw me closer to you, to seek you in a deeper way 
I felt everything was just a dream, a sweet dream indeed. 

I wanted to know you slightly better, but I just couldn't see the link in us. 
I wanted to stay longer, yet I realise many things are out of my control. 

Looking back on how it was in years gone by, I couldn't believe of what I did thus far. 
It seems incredible, marvellous and unbelieveable, so much has changed in me. I knew, this is the journey I have decided, no turning back.

August - 八月 - Be Brave Take Risks

Saint Benedict Chapel, Sumvtig, Switzerland.
August 2015

August truly is a solo viaggio month for me, and surely more solo viaggio trips are planning ahead.
From Italy - Slovenia - Croatia - Ireland + Northern Ireland - Switzerland - Italy. Truly a great blessing and adventure journey for me. I must say, the first step was quite difficult, but having taken the leap of faith, I could foresee more great things coming ahead. 

Be brave, take risks? oh yes, of course, but why solo viaggio? I suppose only those who have tried it knew how it's like. Solo viaggio doesn't mean you travel without plans. In fact you'd tend to do more research and study than anyone else, simply because you know you are on your own and you are ready for the challenges and unpredictable events. More importantly, you truly know how to be independent and responsible for each decision that you make for your trip. There is nobody you could blame but only yourself if there is any mistake - that's just part of life, learn from it.

Well, all that said were only secondary. To me, the fun of solo viaggio is that you have the time to spend it with your inner self. A contemplating moment that you enjoy with yourself, with that when you start to epxlore and question, you eventually get to understand yourself better. Knowing your limits and desires are very important because this will drive you how far you can go. I believe, when I was in Switzerland, the hunger to look for Peter Zumthor's buildings really motivated me to go all the way up to Sumvtig. I traveled twice to Chur simply because of his buildings and the beauty of the mountains and lakes altogether blew my mind. I have never seen something so incredible and so close right in front of my eyes. 

I suppose talking to the local people really helps. Their advises and guidance are precious simply because they know their countries the best. Therefore it would be a shame if you don't know your country well, and hence i have decided that it's about time I should explore more of my beloved country, Malaysia, in order to share its beauty to my international friends.

Photography is enssential during the journey, because it helps with keeping the memories of what you have seen - buildings, streets, and many more. However photography couldn't depict your feelings, that's why being in the picture is important. I am frustrated when the beauty of an architecture, or even an amazing natural landscape couldn't even fit in the entire frame. You would probably think I need a full frame camera and a set of expensive lenses. Then I realised that the greatest set of lenses is actually our pair of eyes. God has given us the best - eyes to see the beauty of his creations, feet to go as far as we can, hands to carry as much as our strengths allow us, and many other parts of our body with their own distinctive purposes. I have discovered a lot and also developed a lot of thoughts about how inspiring God is in His creations.   

A lady once told me, "Don't waste your time too much in Italy before i come visit". She advised me to try epxlore each of the cities in Europe every week, because time flies and I will regret if I don't do so. At that time, I thought that that's too much! But now I realised that I can never get enough even if I have explored a lot of cities in Italy. One year has passed. Time really flies, and I am glad that I am truly embracing the life here in Italy where it all began.

时间是岁月的神偷

外面的世界


时间是岁月的神偷
曾经有人和我说
要等另一半去自己最想去的地方
我想世界那么大 这辈子如果一直在等
恐怕那个人要是没出现 岂不是白等了
又或 出现了却不想去你想去的地方
那不也是一场空

我想我真的明白了
很多时候
真的是天时地利人和
 时机来了
想走就走吧
因为
时间真的是
岁月的神偷

五月末




五月爱上了跑步

原来跑步是种放空
原来跑步是种耐力
原来跑步是种释放
原来跑步是种习惯

 原来
人会变
你会变
我也在变

世上真的没有什么绝对的事
在乎的是那看待的心情
我把一切都看开了 看淡了

人生有太多的相遇
有些人如过客
有些人待了会儿 还是留不下
我看透 离开是难免的 可遇不可求
而真正留下来的 我奉陪到底

沉默


Porto_Portugal April 2015


原来心累了
沉默是最好的方式
忙绿是唯一的借口
不是不想说 只是不知怎么说
有些活 说了也 无补于事
选择沉默 也是种选择 
或许会对人 对事 更好些
沉默也是智慧的衬托
那内涵 懂的人 自然会明白
无需多解释
无声往往胜过有声


在夜阑寂静的夜晚 让思绪蔓延。。。

有時候一個人靜靜地思考閱讀時
我會突然感覺自己就在馬來西亞
懂我的朋友都說 你這次去 肯定不回來
原來她們比我更懂我 
兩年 真的會是兩年嗎?

冬天終於過去了
春天也來了 
就這樣一眨眼 半年過去了
好多地方還沒去 
好多事還沒完成
時間總是對我太殘忍

我也會想從起 
只是從前好像離我很遠了
歸鄉 回城 那心境 何時才來 

異國的朋友最珍貴
但也因為異國 背景文化 不一樣
學了不少 也看透了許多 
原來 兩個人的相處 真的 不容易 
很多事 選擇放下 也是一種選擇 
很多人 拆肩而過 也是一種偶遇

人生漂浮 我還是選擇了 
那 沒有拘束的生活

莫名感

photo by pactsk @ Pienza, Siena

往往最在乎的傷人最深
不是說好真的不理了嗎
不是說了這真的不重要嗎
可往往 期望越高 失望越痛

有些東西 纏在心裏
想說又不知如何說
有些話語 說了又能怎樣
還是選擇了 割捨 放下
那會是對自己最好的 交代

兩年?

喜歡一個人的 旅程 



我這麼一走 是不是只是兩年
很多人問我 真的兩年不回家嗎
我的答案其實一直都一樣
為甚麼呢
不是不想念
只是領悟了原來追求夢想
是要付出 和 犧牲的

回鄉 好像成了一個憧憬 
不敢奢望太多 也不敢去想

而我能做的 
就是全然交托
