Away From Reality?

"Tell me all your secrets
Tell me your fears
I won’t push you away
I’ll only pull you near
No, I won’t judge you
I’mma help you through."

- Sia Fuller
Frustration  - Part 005 : February 26th 2015



There are so many things going on lately I just got no idea where should I even start. There are so many things that put me in a position to actually think about what are the things that is for me. Or should I say for us.

At times, I see life in a way it is so precious. Living with cancer is one thing that force you to actually see things the way it is. No short cuts, no running away. And saying that, I wanna surround myself with the positive people around me. I see from time to time, there will be some people that walked into my life, and right there and then, I just cut them off. One thing I realize, life is too short to even waste my life on those that doesn't cherish what they have. Yes, I do not deny that it really irritates me.

I am living with cancer, a handful or people I love and care for are suffering from terminal illness or even some living with an incurable condition. I was an addict. No.. I should say, I am an addict. I am 17 months clean now, but the crave will always be there. It is something worst than living with cancer. I have to admit that even I don't want to. The question is, there are so many of us are trying to live the right way, not running away and face our demons.

So, the question is, how would you feel when you are trying to do things right, and you see those around you that keeps throwing everything away? Yes I wouldn't deny that everyone yearns for something. But how does it gives a person to throw away a temple of good health when they just felt about their life doesn't go the way they wanted.

I have so much I wanted to write down right here. But I am not going to. Life is one thing I find it beautiful when you know what is the definition of life. You will never have what you wanted, but you will be given what you can handle. All you gotta do is be patient. I waited for a whole 4 years. And I found my anchor.

I am signing off for now heading off to China for a short alone trip. Time to clear my mind and recharge. And here is one thing I wanna share with all of y'all.. And to the special one : " A lot a lot, and muscle. Everyday and every minute... " :)



But piece by piece you collected me
Up off the ground but you abandoned things
And piece by piece you filled the holes that you burned in me
At six years old and no
He never walks away
He never asks for money
He takes care of me
He loves me
Piece by piece
He restored my faith
That a man can be kind
And a father could stay

LAN ReceivesFirst B787-9 Dreamliner

LAN Airlines has taken delivery of its first B787-9 Dreamliner.

The carrier said it will roster the aircraft onto South American routes in April.

LAN B787-9

The delivery makes LAN the first Latin American airline to operate both the B787-8 and B787-9 Dreamliner variants.

The LATAM group now has 11 787s in its fleet. It has a further 21 on order, including ten B787-9s.

LATAM is leasing the new B787-9 from Amsterdam-based lessor AerCap.

LAN and affiliate carrier TAM Airlines last year revealed their new unified cabin design.

American To Fly B787-8 to Beijing and Buenos Aires

American Airlines has announced the first routes its new B787-8 Dreamliner will operate.

The US carrier, which took delivery of the aircraft last month, will first fly the B787-8 between Dallas/Fort Worth and Chicago O'Hare from May 7. The route was announced in January as a B777-200ER service.

The Dreamliner will then be launched internationally between Dallas/Fort Worth and Beijing Capital International on June 2.

From June 4, American will deploy the B787-8 from Dallas/Fort Worth to Buenos Aires' Ministro Pistarini International airport.

The airline said it will announce further Dreamliner destinations for 2015 in due course, as it takes delivery of more aircraft. It has ordered 42 B787-8s and B787-9s, with the option for a further 58.

Andrew Nocella, American's chief marketing officer, said: "Adding the 787 Dreamliner to our network gives us the opportunity to increase our efficiency on long-haul flights across the globe and potentially open up new markets in our network."

American's B787-8 is configured in two classes, with 28 fully-flat seats arranged 1-2-1 in business, 48 Main Cabin Extra (economy with an additional six inches of legroom) seats arranged 3-3-3, and 150 Main Cabin seats, also laid-out 3-3-3.

American is currently in the process of a $2 billion improvements programme. This will see the introduction of upgrades including fully-flat seats on international long-haul aircraft; international wifi; a new design for Admirals Club lounges wordlwide.

The airline is also retrofitting its entire fleet of B777-200 aircraft and selected B767-300s, B757-200s and A319s.

Regal Opens Second Airport Hotel

The 297-room Regal Airport Hotel Xian joins the brand's Regal Airport Hotel Hong Kong.

The new property, which had a soft opening at the end of 2014, is the only hotel to be connected to Xian Xianyang International airport via a covered "link bridge" that leads to Terminal 3.

Superior room
Superior room


Room categories range from Superior and Deluxe, both of which are 40 sqm, to 25 indulgent suites, including a 428 sqm Presidential Suite.

Facilities include six restautants, three ballrooms, including the 720 sqm Grand Ballroom that can accommodate 1,200 people, 20 meeting rooms, Executive Club lounges, a spa, fitness centre and indoor swimming pool.

Belinda Yeung, executive director and COO of Regal Hotels International, said: "These are exciting times for Regal as we look to expand our portfolio from this, our 14th opening, to a multi-brand portfolio of 24 properties by 2016, and I am delighted to be able to welcome guests to our second airport hotel.

"Judging by the incredible feedback we have already received since the property enjoyed its soft opening at the end of last year we fully expect it to follow in the footsteps of our multi-award winning Regal Airport Hotel in Hong Kong."

China Southern Brings Boeing 787 to Perth

China Southern will begin flying its Boeing 787 Dreamliner to Perth from April 1, and will also boost the number of flights to Melbourne and Brisbane as the airline seeks to carve out a larger slice of the Australian market.
Melbourne will see a double-daily service to China Southern's Guangzhou hub from July 1, up from the current 10 flights a week, while Brisbane steps up to a daily service (current five flights each week) from June 23.
A China Southern spokesperson confirmed the Dreamliner's April debut to Australian Business Traveller, with the advanced jet replacing the current Airbus A330 on the thrice-weekly flights.
The Boeing 787 offers passengers a substantially more enjoyable ride than any other commercial jet thanks to a quieter cabin, ride-smoothing technology, clearer filtered air, higher cabin humidity and lower effective cabin altitude, which also contribute to reducing jetlag when you step off the plane.

Dreamliner's delights

Air New Zealand, Scoot and Thai Airways also fly Boeing 787s from Perth to their respective hubs of Auckland, Singapore and Bangkok.
However, China Southern is one of the few airlines in the world to include a first class in its Boeing 787 – albeit with just four seats.
Each is 26 inches (67 cm) wide and at 78 inches when converted into a fully-flat bed, it's just shy of the two metre mark.
Passengers also get a private hand luggage bin, AC and USB power outlets, noise-cancelling headphones and a 17 inch screen built into the far end of the seat's shell.
The jet's 24 business class seats are spread across two cabins of a dozen seats each, in a standard 2-2-2 layout.
There are few surprises here: it's a fully-flat seat, albeit at a slightly shorter 74 inches (188 cm), with 20 inch (51 cm) seat width and an 84 inch (213 cm) pitch.
A 'magazine shelf' and shoe stowage area plus 15 inch video screen and USB port are all part of the deal.
However, China Southern hasn't included an AC power outlet on its list of business class features – we've yet to determine if this is merely an oversight or if indeed laptop power is limited to first class seats.
Stuck at the back of the Dreamliner bus? Make yourself as comfy as you can in the 3-3-3 seating.
At 17.2 inches (44 cm) across, with a seat pitch of 31-33 inches (79-84 cm) and a 6 inch (15 cm) recline, we suggest you pack a pair of noise-cancelling headphones, fire up the 9 inch seatback video screen or dive into a slab of BYO entertainment on your tablet, and count down the hours until you land.

Vietnam Airlines Reveals A350 and B787-9 Cabins

Vietnam Airlines has unveiled the new seat products that will be available on its soon-to-be delivered A350 XWB and B787-9 aircraft.

Airbus A350 XWB
The A350 business class product will feature the Sogerma Solstys seat by EADS. Those who have flown with Iberia, Emirates or Etihad will be familiar with the design.

B787-9 business class


The cabin will be arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration, meaning all seats provide direct access to the aisle. Dimensions for the seats have not yet been revealed.

Meanwhile, the airline has decided to go for a completely different seat design on its B787-9, with the Dreamliner instead featuring the Zodiac Cirrus seat – commonly seen on Cathay Pacific and American Airlines aircraft.

With a total of 28 seats, Vietnam Airlines has configured it B787-9 business cabin with a 1-2-1 layout. Each seat will come with a 42-inch pitch, and a 15.4-inch IFE screen.

Both the Sogerma Solstys (A350) and Cirrus (B787) seat can be reclined into a fully-flat bed.

Premium economy
Economy class


Vietnam Airlines also has a premium economy cabin, which the company brands as Deluxe Economy. Details about the A350 XWB's version have not been released, but design-wise, it is expected to be identical to that on the B787-9.

The Dreamliner will offer 35 seats in Deluxe Economy sporting a 2-3-2 layout. Along with a 42-inch seat pitch, the product will offer a 10.6-inch IFE screen.

Finally, economy seats on both aircraft have been arranged in a 3-3-3 layout. Personal televisions are available on all seats in coach.

Last month, it emerged that Vietnam Airlines will move its London-bound services from Gatwick to Heathrow this summer.

Plaza Premium To Open Airport Hotels

Plaza Premium to open airport hotels at Singapore, Hong Kong
The Plaza Premium company is expanding its reach from airport lounges into airport hotels at major transit hubs such as Singapore, Hong Kong and Abu Dhabi.

Each hotel will ideally be located within the airport terminal so that travellers can quickly check in and check out to make the most of their stopover time.

Plaza Premium plans to open its first airport hotel at Singapore's Changi Airport in late 2015, with a second to follow in Hong Kong.

There are also plans for a new Abu Dhabi airport hotel to open by mid-2016.

The boutique properties will have between 50 and 70 rooms and be geared as much to short-term stays of as little as three hours through to half-day rates, along with full 24 hour stays, with a restaurant and spa attached.

The airport hotels will be launched under a new brand but carrying the 'by Plaza Premium' tagline.

The Hong Kong-based company is best known for its network of branded airport lounges across Asia as well as recently-opened facilities in London, Vancouver and Abu Dhabi.

Plaza Premium also manages lounges for airlines and airline alliances, including Cathay Pacific's The Bridge at Hong Kong and SkyTeam's new Sydney Airport lounge.

Korean Air's New Prestige Suite Business Class

Korean Air has revealed its next-generation business class, dubbed the Prestige Suite, and also says a new first class suite is on the way.
The Prestige Suite extends to a fully-flat bed and adopts a staggered 2-2-2 layout so that each passenger enjoys suite-like privacy along with easy access to the aisle.
Korean Air will fit the Prestige Suite to selected A330-300 jets including six factory-fresh models, along with a dozen Boeing 777-300ERs, ten Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners and ten Boeing 747-8I .
The seat is 21.6 inches wide but gains an extra inch in flat bed mode, with a 17 inch HD video touchscreen and touchpad controller. 
A handset is also offered, and this comes with a touchpad that can be used to scroll through the entertainment menu.
As for the all-new first class, Korean Air says only that it will take "spaciousness, stylish design and comfort to an even higher level."

Singapore Airlines' New Premium Economy

Singapore Airlines will launch its new premium economy seats from August 9 on key Airbus A380 and Boeing 777-300ER routes including Sydney, Hong Kong and London.
The double-deck superjumbo will be fitted with 36 premium economy seats while the long-range Boeing 777 will have 28 seats; in both aircraft they'll be arranged in a 2-4-2 layout.
Crafted for Singapore Airlines by JPA Design and manufactured by seat-makers Zodiac Aerospace and ZIM, the leather-clad seats will be '18.5 to 19.5 inches wide', the airline promises, with a pitch of 38 inches, compared to a 19 inch width and tighter 32 inch pitch in standard economy.
For inflight comfort there's an 8 inch recline on the seatback plus a flip-up padded legrest.
Each premium economy passenger will have access to their own AC power socket (with a universal design that'll take all common plug types) adjacent to the legrest – not the ideal position, but a familiar location even on many business class seats.
A USB plug is more conveniently located just behind the armrest, along with a socket for airline-supplied active noise-cancelling headphones for the 13.3 inch HD video screen.
A side-pocket recess will allow space to perch your tablet or a compact laptop, or indeed other carry-on items such as a book or reading glasses.
Other creature-comforts will include Singapore Airlines' 'Book the Cook' service to order your inflight meal in advance, champagne on the drinks menu plus access to priority check-in and baggage handling, with a checked luggage allowance of 35kg, up from the 30kg of economy.
Frequent flyers will also collect an extra 10% more KrisFlyer miles when travelling in premium economy.

Singapore Airlines A380 premium economy

On Singapore Airlines’ Airbus A380 the 36 premium economy will be located on the lower deck, nestled between first class suites and economy.

Singapore Airlines Boeing 777 premium economy

On the Boeing 777-300ER there are 28 seats behind business class and ahead of economy.
In upgrading the Boeing 777-300ER to this new four-class configuration Singapore Airlines has also halved the size of the first class cabin, dropping from eight of its latest ‘next generation’ suites (show below) to four...
... but adds six more of its latest luxe business class seats.
In addition to being fitted to 19 Airbus A380s and 19 Boeing 777-300ER jets the premium economy cabin will also feature on the first 20 of Singapore Airlines' new Airbus A350-900 jets which are expected to debut in the later half of 2015.
Singapore Airlines pegs the total investment in the project as US$80 million.
While long skeptical of the value of a 'better than economy but less than business' cabin, holding that its economy class was more than good enough, the Singapore flag-carrier joins other airlines which have embraced premium economy including Qantas, British Airways, Cathay Pacific and most recently Lufthansa.
However, Cathay Pacific is now shrinking the size of its premium economy cabin on selected routes while Qantas has opted not to include premium economy on its upgraded Airbus A330s to Asia.

Sydney first for SQ premium economy

Singapore Airlines' first premium economy flights will be on the daily Airbus A380 SQ221/222 service between Singapore and Sydney starting on August 9, to be followed on August 12 on the SQ231/222 as the Boeing 777-300ER flight.
Here's the full schedule for 2015 (subject to change), which shows a fast rollout to all of SQ's major routes:
  • Sydney from August 9 (Airbus A380) and August 12 (Boeing 777-300ER)
  • Hong Kong and London Heathrow from August 28 (Airbus A380)
  • Hong Kong from August 31 (Boeing 777-300ER)
  • London Heathrow from September 2 (Boeing 777-300ER)
  • Beijing and Shanghai from September 18 (Airbus A380)
  • Frankfurt from September 24 (Boeing 777-300ER)
  • Paris from September 28 (Airbus A380)
  • Delhi from October 13 (Airbus A380)
  • Mumbai from October 21 (Airbus A380)
  • Auckland from October 25 (Airbus A380)
  • Tokyo/Los Angeles from December 1 (Airbus A380)

  • Frankfurt/New York from December 14 (Airbus A380)
  • Zurich from December 27 (Airbus A380)
  • Dubai from January 5, 2016 (Boeing 777-300ER)
  • Seoul/San Francisco from January 6, 2016 (Boeing 777-300ER)

THAI Sets London A380 Date

Thai Airways has announced the launch date for Airbus A380 services between London and Bangkok.

The A380 service was announced back in 2012 but only now has confirmed it will be available from 1 July 2015.

THAI’s Krittaphon Chantalitanon, VP aviation services support department told Travel Daily at World Travel Market last year that he hoped to see the aircraft deployed on the route by the end of the first half of this year.

The A380 will operate on one flight each day departing Heathrow’s Terminal 2 at 12.30 arriving in Bangkok at 5.45. The return leg leaves Thailand at 1.10 arriving in London at 7.15.

Its 435 economy seats will fill the lower deck and the back of the upper level with a 32” seat pitch.

Sixty seats will be in the Royal Silk executive class with a 74” seat pitch and lie-flat seats, while its Royal First class has 12 compartment-style seats with an 83” pitch.

A promotional return fare from £543.66 including taxes is available from 1 February-30 September.

Fear & Life

“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement, and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”

- John Lennon
Fear - Part 006 : February 4th 2015



There are times when things are just spinning out of our control. There are so many things that we can think of avoiding these but fact is, it will never be in our grasp. Sometimes, it doesn't have to be a bad thing. I know a fact that whenever I am around him, I could totally forget that I am living with cancer. To a certain point, it is a good thing for me. I feel like I am living. But sometimes, I asked myself who am I fooling? Even if I felt that way, fact is, there will never be anything normal to begin with. Maybe this is the part that I love. He never see me as a sick person. I feel like I am living a life that is what meant to be lived. 

I won't deny from time to time, the burden I am carrying is heavy. I know I don't have to. But to a certain extend, it will always be. They say when you lose everything, let it be physical attachment, emotional attachments, or even monetary aspect of things. I think that I am now at a point where I know whatever I am doing, I can't fail in doing it. I think it's a healthy part of our relationship. We k now where we wanna be, and where we are heading towards. But sometimes, I just wanted the end result so bad, I just beat myself up inside. I can't get over the part where time is what I don't have. 

I do not know what is next, but I know where I wanna be next. I think there is a part of me that kept wanting to runaway from reality, that we are now having so many vacations. To a point where I know when I am having my time with him, I could lie to myself that I am just as normal as everyone else. But now lies the question of how long more could I run away from? I am now at a point I need to face my demons. Yes, I do fear. I fear that everything will change. I fear that I couldn't be the person I wanted to be. A relapse after another is torture. But what can I do about it? It's been so long I've been living like this. Even though the game has change, one thing that will not change is the fear. It isn't the fear of the end, but the fear of what will things be if things goes the wrong way? 

One thing I could agree with a common saying, 

You got nothing else to lose when you don't have anything else to lose. 

It is true, but that doesn't apply when you are with someone else. You feel you got everything to lose. Today marked the third month since we fell in love with each other. Time flies, but there wasn't a day went by that I do not fear of losing everything. And yes, I will not deny now that I have everything to lose. It isn't about what physical or even monetary lost, but what you hold dear to your heart. Now I fear that I might lose the battle against cancer one day. What will happen if I do? 

There are so much more in life that what we hope for. But I am questioning if that hope is enough? Love drives you, but life, well.. Sometimes, life is just being a bitch. I am lost in a way. There are things that I wanted to make right where I know I couldn't just push the speed of it. I read about case studies that now medical studies had successfully deactivate the HIV virus. Of course these are great news to me as there are a few that I hold close to my heart are living with it. But everyday, I looked up on my google alert, there is near to zero on a thing for a cure to cancer. Put aside the terminal patience, for those who are living with it, I know it was never easy. But why... Is it too much to hope? 

I know I'm spiraling, but how would I able to stop? How would I even could for a minute just wished that it has a hope for living without it? The future made a lot of sense to me right now after having you in my life. But how could I achieve it? I need a way. I need hope.  I needed something to hold on to. I need that future. 

I need the fear to just let me go..

"Heartbeat Song" Teaser With A Special Guest

This is honestly the perfect way to make a teaser for your newest song.

Kelly Clarkson took to her Facebook to gift a video for Heartbeat Song, AKA the first single (hopefully dropping next week) coming off her brand new album, and we are OBSESSED with it!

Not only do we get to listen to the brilliance that is KC, but the video is of her daughter River Rose listening and dancing to the song!

It's SO STINKING CUTE! Seriously! This is the most adorable thing you will watch ALL DAY.

The American Idol alum tweeted on Friday, Jan. 9, "It's here...the first official #HeartbeatSong teaser!" sharing a video of River to introduce the track. The clip shows the infant in a music studio with a large pair of headphones over her pink-and-white polka dot hat.

Sitting in an office chair, River kicks her feet, grooves to the music, and smiles, as Clarkson asks, "River, what are you listening to?"

 
River is featured in Kelly Clarkson's new teaser.

Clarkson then takes the headphones off of her daughter's head and plays the chorus of "Heartbeat Song" as River continues to dance.

The "Stronger" singer welcomed her first child with husband Brandon Blackstock this past June. The new parents tied the knot in October 2013, after the talent manager popped the question in December 2012.

Before starting her family, Clarkson released her last studio album, the holiday record Wrapped in Red, in October 2013. She debuted Stronger, her most recent collection of new music, in October 2011.

Clarkson is expected to release a pop album with influences of "rock, country, R&B, and dance," in the coming months. Take a look at the "Heartbeat Song" teaser in the video above!

Being In Love & Loving Someone



It took me a very long time to learn the difference between being in love with someone and actually loving that person. I learned the hard way, the very, very hard way.

Hearts were broken repeatedly over the years, and although I wish the pain could have been avoided, the experiences taught me more than any book or class ever could.

I grew up on fairy tales and love stories that taught me to believe that being in love and loving are the same thing. That couldn’t be any further from the truth.

Being in love with someone and loving that person are two different things. Understanding the difference and being able to apply the knowledge to your own relationships is key to building a lasting relationship.

Here are a few differences between being in love and loving that I wish I knew a decade sooner:

When you’re in love with someone, you want this person.


Being in love is wanting to own a part of the other person. It’s believing this person is so wonderful that you want him or her to be a part of your life, a part of you. When you fall in love with a person, you feel an intense urge to consume that person in any way you can.

Being in love is believing you need someone in order to be happy.

When you love someone, you need this person.


You don’t just want — or rather, don’t only want — you need him or her. You need this person to live a happy and healthy life because your happiness literally depends on it.

You need him or her to be a part of your life in some way or another, not because you want to own a piece of this person, but because you want to give him or her a piece of yourself; loving someone is deeming him or her worthy of owning a part of you.

It isn’t about ownership; it’s about wanting only the best for that individual — something that often means letting that love go.

When you’re in love with someone, your emotions are always on high.


Your brain is producing the most amazing chemical cocktail, making you feel as if you were floating atop of a cloud. You get high just by being in love with a person — and it’s a sort of high you never want to let go of.

No one wants to come down from such a high. This is where the problem lies: You inevitably do come down.

When you love someone, your emotions settle and then fluctuate.


Loving someone isn’t as much about the emotions as it is about the thoughts.

Thinking about someone, wishing the best for that person, doing the best to make him or her happy and, well, caring for that person just as much as — if not more than — yourself, that’s what love is. The emotions that come with it are just the perks.

Once you have passed the stage of simply being in love with someone to actually loving him or her, you have to learn to let go of the constant high and to ride the less frequent waves as they come. They always come. They just aren’t the “in love” emotional state that only falling in love allows for.

When you’re in love with someone, you’re aiming to reach some goal.


That’s what makes falling in love so exciting — the constant yearning for more.

You want to spend more time with this person, get to know him or her better, be with this person as much as possible. You always want to have more, and want to build a greater, more serious relationship.

When you love someone, you aren’t rushing to reach the finish line.


The goal that being in love calls for no longer exists — but only because it’s already been reached. This often scares people because they begin to feel a need to continue making progress.

Unfortunately, everything in the universe is finite. You can’t make progress and continue building something greater forever. The only thing you can eventually do is keep reinforcing what you already have.

Being in love is not only understanding that what you have is all you need, but wanting to strengthen that bond indefinitely.

When you’re in love with someone, you think you care more about that person more than you actually do.


Falling in love is much, much easier than loving. When you’re in love, the chemicals in your brain and body make you feel as if the person is the greatest person in the world.

You believe this person to be the most amazing specimen you have ever encountered. Sadly, this way of thinking usually wears off as soon as the feel-good chemicals wear off. Then you’re left lost and confused.

When you love someone, you care about that person more than you think.


Being in love is easily recognizable, as it makes you feel a constant yearning, a constant need. Loving, on the other hand, doesn’t give you such constant reminders.

However, life always manages to give us those reminders. Life will often keep people away from us, harm those in our lives and sometimes even take them from us entirely.

When you truly love someone, such moments of separation and loss overwhelm you with emotion. People often forget how much they love a person — or fail to realize how much they love them — until life forces them to remember.

When you’re in love with someone, you can fall out of love with that someone.


What goes up must come down. In the case of falling in love, what comes down often crawls back up. If you can fall in love with a person then you know you can just as easily fall out of love with him or her.

Being in love — and romantic love altogether — is mostly a result of our minds’ creation. We make, or allow, ourselves to fall in love by romanticizing the individual as well as the relationship. When you’re in love, reality doesn’t always line up with your version of it.

When you love someone, you never really stop loving that someone.


Loving a person is something that defines you — it defines the person you are. Those we love, those we care about most, those who mean the most to us, and who have affected us most in our lives, are those who never really leave us.

They may remove themselves, or be removed, from our lives, but they never leave our minds. Their memory, the thought of them, makes us feel strong emotion. Their presence in our lives has had such an incredible influence on us that, because of them, we are different people.

When you love someone, you can’t stop loving that person because it would require you to stop loving a part of you yourself.

Control

"Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope."

- Maya Angelou
Inspiration - Part 005 : January 5th 2015



Every thing happens for a reason. Today has been a mixed of both good and bad. Life has always been a mystery. The things that we knew could somehow turns to strange situation that we sometimes couldn't comprehend. Living with cancer for the past few years made me see the world differently. I couldn't really say life have been tough on me cause I know that is not true. I've always been blessed with a great support system. My family, my love one, my friends all are my sources to keep me going. 

Every time when I see myself as a victim of life's own game, I realize there are the people I love and care for who are suffering as well. A big part of me wanted to do more. But how could I be able to do so? I can't handle myself at times too. Sometimes, I really wished I could just let my guard down and let people in to this realm where everything is just filled with agony and dispare. Believe it or not, I really wanted to. But in the end, I just naturally held back. It is like a part of me just didn't wanna let myself to be vulnerable.

But like I mentioned earlier, life has also been kind to me. Ever since Valentines Day two years back, I felt like a part of me didn't have to carry that weight myself. And now, having you in my life made me felt even more lucky. I remember I once told my bestie that I wouldn't be so lucky to have him. Apparently I am the lucky one. I'm grateful for that. And I love you to bits for that. 

But when things came down to Mr D. I felt like sometimes, I really wanted to shelter him from all the crappy stuff life have thrown at him. And I know a fact Leo would totally support me in this. When things seem to turn out a little better for him, another curve ball was thrown towards him. Something I could relate to all the time. The thing is, I don't know what I am feeling. 

Even for another character in my life I've never really mentioned in my blog before. I know these are tough times, but sometimes the more we wanna be in control of life, the more we couldn't grab a grip. I was left puzzled on why the temper? I was confused, but then again, I knew what happened. Through the years, I think I begin to understand sometimes, when the faith and trust we have among friends, when it isn't strong enough, things would easily just fall apart. I slept on it and it was just clear to me. I may not be in control in a lot of things in life, but I know who are the people that meant to me for me to hold on to. For that, I've learned how to let go. 

There are people that I wanted them to stay, there are also those I would just smile and nod and say goodbye to. Life is just a beautiful journey that I do not wanna put those un-needed thorns to it. There are so much more I wanted to do and so much more I wanted to make this life counts. What matters and what doesn't, it's just coming down to what I decide to do. I may not be in control in life, but I could certainly be in control on how I wanna feel about life. And I'm glad that I've decided on what I wanted. Suffering is inevitable, but feeling pain is a choice.

Starwood Hotels: Free Internet For All SPG Members

The Starwood group will offer free Internet across its family of hotels – including Sheraton, W, Westin, Le Meridien and Aloft – from February 2, 2015.
All members of the group's SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest) loyalty scheme will enjoy free WiFi and cable Internet, although there's a catch: your stay must be booked via Starwood's website or app.
In theory, booking directly with the hotel (or through a travel agency or hotel booking mega-sites such as Expedia) won't see you qualify for free Internet.
If you're an SPG Gold or Platinum member you'll get an automatic upgrade to high-speed 'premium Internet', which Starwood says is designed for "streaming content and downloading large files."
Starwood's move follows similar decisions by the IHG and Marriott chains.
