Be the one.

When the world turn their back against you, be the one who doesn’t do the same.

Be the one who perseveres. The one who doesn’t see it as a reason to leave. The one who stays. Be the one who still sees the good in people. Be the one who forgives.

In this tough battle, be the one who chooses to fight. Who chooses to fight despite the pain. Who chooses to stand firmly to the ground and to not get knocked down. Who chooses to jump over the hurdles, and to endure through all the challenges. No matter how hard they may seem to be.

Be the one who fights for what’s right for the world. Who constantly believes that life will get better with the days. Be the one who doesn’t walk away when things go wrong. Who doesn’t turn away.

Be the one who fights for the people you love. Who chooses love over hate. Be the one who is thankful for the things that you have. Who doesn’t take love for granted.

Be the one who recognises good things. Who chooses not to run away in fear of getting run over. Be the one who never takes advantage of it.

Be the one who is kind. Who is genuine and sees things with bright eyes. Be the one who priorities your family and friends. Who doesn’t neglect people who care. Who greets others with softened eyes and an open heart. Be the one who appreciates people who pushes you to be better. 

Be the one who trusts. Who doesn’t let anyone down. Who follows through the good times and the bad. No matter how rough the world gets. No matter how tough the battle is. 

Be the one who stays.



There is always one person from your past whom is untouchable.

Untouchable because you thought you could be there for each other, but couldn't. Untouchable because you tried your best to make things work, but it seemed impossible. Untouchable because you thought they were your destination, but turns out that it was just a stopover.

Reminiscing the beginning, everything fitted so nicely. You had endless conversations, you couldn't get enough of their presence and everything just seemed to be happening for a reason.

But one day, all of a sudden, things went downhill. You didn't value each other like before anymore. You didn't make time for each other like you did in the beginning. And things went out of hand, you felt like you were losing what you had. The foundation that you built on, it was slowly breaking into bits and pieces. As this went on, you realised that it wasn't worth holding on anymore.

Then, you let go.

You let go not because you stopped loving each other. Not because you no longer care. And certainly not because you’ve lost the touch. But because leaving will do you good. It will bring both of you to a better place. And possibly, the next person who comes along, he or she will be someone of your dreams.

Yet, this person never leaves; because those feelings for them do not get lost, they just wander.

And, there may come a day where you realize that you could still pick things up from where you left off. However, like assembling the shattered pieces of a broken vase, it won't look whole anymore.

There, you'd realise that this person who was the soul to your heart, becomes untouchable; where words could only be spoken through tears.

My love, you formed such an important part of my life, yet we're so far apart. But I'm glad that you were part of it, because i wouldn't want to spend those times any other way.

We always knew that it was tough moving forward, but it was even tougher trying to make things work. While it was easier to stop hurting each other, because we deserve magic and nothing less.

A Letter To My Children In The Future.

Darlings, here are Mom’s promises to you:

I promise that I will be there to witness every step while you grow and become a person filled with passion, love and dreams. 

I promise to never stop supporting and encouraging you when you’re making life’s toughest decisions. I’ll be there; through your stressful college periods, and getting you through those pre-marriage anxieties. 

I promise that when life gets tough, home will always be your shelter from all storms. Because Mom will always be the person whom you can fall back on, and that i’ll be backing you up at all costs.

And I promise that I will be the person hearing you out when you need someone to talk to. Although I might not be able to give you the best advice or be your best listening ear, but I hope to be the person relieving you from the complicated world. 

Sure, one day you will find your very own sweetheart like I did, I know you will. And there will come a day when you would no longer need me like you do when you were younger. But remember that I’ll always be here, and i’ll always love you.

With all my heart. xx

Goodbye Isn’t Forever, Or Is It?

During a recent trip, I was told a beautiful love story.

Like novels, it is amazing how two people can find their way back to each other even after decades. But what’s harder to imagine are the milestones they missed out in each other’s lives.

I asked myself repeatedly,

“How did they do it? How can they stand being apart if they meant so much to each other?”

“Did everything stayed the same?”

“And why didn’t they try to work things out in the beginning?”

Then, I came to the realization that two people often needed to be apart to know the importance of each other. And despite all the time they were apart, they still loved like before and this time, they knew that they want to stay. They knew that they are each other’s pillar of support.

Often, many don’t get second chances after losing what they had. And those who did, did not take on that chance.

But I’m glad they did.

Because when they met again in the future, they were finally ready for each other. Indeed.

It was heartbreaking yet rejoicing because he thought his love was too much for her. He thought that she could only find her happiness without him in the picture.

It was only till they found each other again, they then realised that certain things didn’t change; people might change and feelings do fade, but when the love is real, it never really goes away.

Their love story was so inspiring that I hope that the world could hear it. I hope that you, too, can be inspired by it and do not let go of the people who matter to you.

They were lucky to have found love again. But how often do chances like these happen?

So, if they do matter to you, tell them. Appreciate them today. Don’t wait till it gets too late. Don’t wait for second chances to appear.

Because they might be gone, forever.

I Want To Chase Sunsets With You.

Sunsets are one of the most beautiful things in the world. They signify the end, but also celebrates the beginning of something new.

And love, you are my sunrise and sunset.

When i see you, all i picture is us walking down the aisle together, hand in hand. You, my love, gave me everything that no one else could; your gentle touch, humor, patience and thoughtfulness.

After all these time, I couldn’t be more thankful for what I have.

Thank you for allowing me to be myself.
Thank you for supporting my dreams.
Thank you for chasing after your own passion.
Thank you for working hard for us.
Thank you for being silly with me.
Thank you for staying through our worst and best.
Thank you for being who you said you are.

Thank you, for handing me a fortune that no money can buy.

And now, i want to chase sunsets with you. Because with every sunset, it comes sunrise. Like our love, it begins all over again everyday. So when the day ends, we can renew our love when the sun rises.

Sweetheart, I look forward to every beginning with you. Because not a single moment is dull when we are together.

I love you, and I love sunsets with you.

He’s Like A Storm, But Calming.

He wasn’t supposed to be a part of you. From the very beginning, you knew he was trouble to your soul. Yet, you couldn’t fight it and you opened your heart to him.

All these while, you’ve built a wall inside your heart. But he, the heart to your soul, self-destructed at the sight of him. And so, you were convinced that you’re ready to do this; to start anew.

Especially the day he came knocking on your doors, it felt like skies were cleared from the grey and the moon shone brighter than before.

Together, you began planning for the future; Marriage. Kids. Pets. Everything. Both of you were perfect with the same dreams and goals for what the future may bring.

Day by day, you spent moments cuddling and waking up next to each other, but it was still never enough. You couldn’t believe what was in front of you, because never have you thought that you’d meet someone like him. Charming. Romantic. Intelligent. Everything was so perfect; so close to perfection indeed.

When he appeared in your life, you thought you finally found the one; your lifetime companion.

He, too, said he wanted you badly. But just when you thought you could take a step further, he backed out. He decided that you were too much for him, too much for his world. He decided to let you go.

Like all other lovers, he was like the light at the end of the tunnel, but never did you know that you got the wrong exit.

Suddenly, all the late nights spent together became memories that haunted you every second. You are lost. Confused. You aren’t sure if you’d be able to deal with this, without breaking yourself.

But I hope it wouldn’t take you long before you go back to where you were. Though broken, but this time round, you will become stronger. You will love better. You will find your worth.

And soon enough, you will find someone who looks you in the eye and say “you’re worth the wait.

What It Means To Love Someone.

Often, many are torn between the idea of loving someone or truly loving the person. Of course, some of you might have found your answers, but many are still lost in the journey of searching for it.

Often, many are torn between the idea of loving someone or truly loving the person. Of course, some of you might have found your answers, but many are still lost in the journey of searching for it.

Well, you meet someone, date them and decide if you want to be committed to them. But when you lose someone, you don’t get to decide when you would stop missing them or when you would stop fighting for them. Perhaps, you could ask yourself if you really do love them or simply love the idea of them.

In the topic of love, there might be no clean lines between both, but if you love someone:

1. They might not be perfect, but they are for you.
As cliche as it might sound, no one is perfect because we all have flaws.
But you know it’s love when all you want is to fit into the gaps between both of you. You would love all of their flaws, be it their messy bed hair, bad habits or even their culinary skills that constantly needs improvement.

And you’d come to realize that all these flaws that had once mattered so much no longer exist, because they are perfect for you.

2. You want to chase their dreams with them.
Their dreams become yours, and you’ll do all that it takes to make them come true. Although, there might be times when you do not agree with each other, but you’d still want to be there to support all their decisions. Through the good and the bad, together, always.

3. You trust them.
Love is trust. Be it they are out to party or simply to hang out with their friends, you do not start questioning them or request that they report their whereabouts. You give them space and allow them to have their own time.

4. You want them to be happy.
Nothing else matters more than seeing them happy. Even when there comes a day that they decide to leave, you allow them and you let them go.

The pain is excruciating. So I understand if you can’t resist that urge to continue fighting for them, but believe me, eventually you will compromise. Yes, you lost them and you feel painful. Hurt. But as days passes by, you’d feel glad that they are leading a happy life.

And love, is feeling happy when you see that they are.

In the journey of love, we meet people, lots of them. But how often do you meet someone and end up loving them?

Everyone falls in love, and everyone has a different journey, but yours would be your favourite. Eventually. Definitely. I promise you.
