Layang Layang

Long overdue... but better late than never.

Using a brand new Canon IXUS 850 IS with underwater housing, these beautiful shots were taken during my stay in Layang Layang Island Resort on Swallow Reef, 305km West of Kota Kinabalu in East Malaysia. Enjoy...
You can see Turtles......and Hammerheads.

My Magic Panadol

One nostril stuck
The only throat sore,
Other nostril runny
Multiple coughs roar.

Eyes' vision blurred
A tired back aches,
Breath a wheezing whisper
My weakened heart breaks.

I is for ill...
...and D is for Depressed.Dank the Lifesaver is Depressed.
Did i mention i like Magic Panadol?

"Pop"... two more Magic Panadols down the throat...

2 x (Kid + Lady)

Uma & Rohan, Yvonne & MayYing, and Dank of course.

Today we went to the Navy Open House 2007. Expecting a ginormous (pronounced jai-normous, thanx Bill for this excellent word) crowd and a scorching sun, we decided to go early. By 830am we were already waiting for the shuttle bus!

The weather wasn't so nice even though we were early... hot sun rays beaming down starting at 10am! Fortunately there was the occasional sea breeze for some heat relief.

Mich and her two friends went as well! They braved the sun to walk a few kilometres (because Dank didn't advise Mich to take the shuttle bus) in their heels (because Dank didn't advise on the best Open House Attire), only to find not-so-many-things to do in there that they enjoyed. Sorry Mich! =( At least you took some nice/fun photos...?

We enjoyed a good Juggler perform "One Ball Juggling" among his other tricks, a fun ride in the water in a "Duck", walked through a knowledgeful exhibition, and went onboard a ship to tour it (and to enjoy the aircon within the ship). The kids enjoyed it even though it was an extremely hot day, and Yvonne & MayYing enjoyed the view, deducing that most Navy guys were good-looking and had six-packs.

Some photos of the cute kids (and ladies):

She Slit Her Wrist

A pool of blood soaked through the cloth.
A patch of blood on the jeans.
A trickle of blood down the arm.
A splatter of blood on the wall.
A stain of blood on the floor tile.
...and a petrified girl.

7 stitches, 5 days MC, a repentant daughter.

Life Support

What would you want if you're on Life Support?

Would you want them to:
Unplug and let you go, or Hold on for some hope...?

Into the Sunset, away from it all...

First it was Clare,
Then came Work problems,
Next the Investigations and Accusations,
Now dear Grandfather.
What's next? What's my next hurdle?

Let me in, To see you in the morning light
To get me on and all alone the tears they come
See all come
I want you to believe in life
But I get the strangest feeling that you've gone away
Will you find out who you are too late to change?
I wish I could be

Every little thing you wanted, All the time
Oh... I wish I could be
Every little thing you wanted, All the time

Lift me up, Just lift me up don't make a sound
And let me hold you up before you hit the ground
See all come, You say you're all right
But I get the strangest feeling that you've gone away... you've gone away
And will you find out who you are too late to change?

I wish I could be
Every little thing you wanted, All the time
I wish I could be
Every little thing you wanted, All the time


Don't give me up
Don't give me up tonight
Or soon nothing will be right at all
Salvation's when you find out who you are..
Too late to change? Too late to change...

I wish I could be
Every little thing you wanted, All the time

Every Little Thing
by Dishwalla

Bring it on... Test me... Push me to my limits...
See if i can take it, just challenge me!!!

Make me stronger or Silence the pain...?

What doesn't kill me makes me stronger,
If it When it kills me it silences my pain...

Why Do You Cry?

For help? For pity? For some consolation?
Crying is liberating.

If you Cry, does it mean you are weak?
If you never Cry, does it mean you are strong?

I Cried.

"Since 1907, Australia's Surf Lifesavers have rescued half a million people, and provided first aid to more than a million others.
At a moment's notice they risk their own lives to save someone they have never met.
Day in, day out, they give their time to make our beaches safe."
- Surf Life Saving Australia

At a moment's notice, would you risk your own life to save someone you've never met? With all the time in the world, would you help the elderly lady carry her bags across the road?
Closer to you:
Would you help your colleague clear his/her wastepaper basket, for nothing in return?
Would you make a cup of hot tea for your colleague in the farthest corner of the office?
Would you SMS a friend to simply invite him/her for dinner, to make time to say hello?
Would you be the difference in someone else's life, not for reward or recognition but just because you want to?
