AUTUMN GOODBYE

"I never promised you a happy ending,
You never said you wouldn't make me cry,
but summer love will keep us warm long after
our autumn goodbye,
 autumn goodbye, autumn goodbye"
 - Britney Spears 


In the past, all my relationships have started in Winter. Summer comes and it's 'Summer Love', but none until now, with this one, have made it into Autumn. So no this isn't, as Ms Spears dubbed it, Autumn Goodbye. This one is here to stay.

They say "anyone that encourages intellectual, emotional, artistic or spiritual growth is worth keeping. Don't let them go." But they forget that some people who encourage intellectual growth may do so in the worst way, in the most demeaning way. And those who encourage emotional growth may do so in the most heartless way... So no, be with someone who is kind to you, who is patient and understanding towards you. "If you find yourself thinking 'Wait. Can't say that. He'll think I'm weird and f*cked up.' Ditch them and find someone who responds with something twice as weird and three times as f*cked up." 

When you blurt out something that's completely bizarre because you no longer filter yourself, then you stare at him and he stares back in a moment of silence... But then he bursts out laughing at your idiocy. That's when you know you've found someone of the same wavelength. He doesn't judge your weirdness but fall for it time and time again, and you on the other hand are fulfilled by the fact that you can make him laugh.

MISS INDEPENDENT

"Define success on your own terms, 
achieve it by your own rules, 
and build life you're proud to live."
- Anne Sweeney


It's so easy when being surrounded by high-achievers to feel so lost, to become completely persuaded by majority's definition of success. L confided in us about her cousin, how she was a dentist, dating a dentist, about to get married, and moving into the house they bought together. But as my friend Q says, "Define your own success!".

THE WHITE KNIGHT

"A good half of the art of living is resilience." 
- Alain de Botton


How could someone with such a soft heart for cartoon characters and animals be so heartless and act so merciless towards someone they once cared about, who is now crying and begging right in front of them? It is such a weird question but it reminds me that Hitler was an animal lover yet he killed millions of Jews. It is a reminder that a love and compassion for one thing is not a love and compassion for all. I guess I always thought there was a strong correlation, that one thing means a bigger picture and often I am left devastated. Extrapolating one small thing and correlating it to mean something bigger, grander, better... Know this, you should not put people in boxes, and when you learn that they are not who you thought they were, do not try to change them. You cannot change people. You can only offer your help and keep your doors open for them. Only we are the heroes of our own lives. We are our own white knights.

BANGKOK BRUNCHING

"People who love to eat
are always the best people." 
- Julia Child


We had no plans to do brunch in Thailand, thinking of diving into the most raw and dingy hidden places for amazing food. But I was glad we had the chance to see a different light of Thailand. Located at Sukhumvit 49, tucked away from the busy streets of Sukhumvit is this bright and bubbly cafe serving a delicious range of Western food. To think Thailand doesn't know how to do brunch, Rocket Coffee Bar sure does! Bringing ingredients and influences from all around the world into their coffee (from places such as South America and local Thailand), I truly felt like Rocket Coffee Bar was a plane ticket experience for the world's coffee. And for someone who loves to travel, their menu gave me ecstatic feelings.
