to be, rather than to seem

Looking At The Sky Soothes Me

Cotton candy sky

Clouds can take form in many shapes and sizes, this was taken on a lazy Saturday morning. It is like thousands of cotton candy being made and flew up to the sky, except they are pure white, not those colourful candy we used to see in the carnival.

Well, lately I’ve been feeling quite a bit exhausted due to a lack of sleep and stress coming at me from every which way. With design project deadlines to catch and having to deliver a few lectures in the past months, indeed I was being less jovial in my handling of day to day living. Like any other problems, there are always some solutions. Mine is simple, just looking at the blue sky gives me this soothing and therapeutic effect.

These were taken during my flight to Kuching. The plane hovered across the Santubong peninsula and Sarawak River.

These were taken on the way back to Kuala Lumpur, overlooking the Straits of Malacca and the planned garden and intellect city of Putrajaya.

Sunset Langkawi

My favourite? The sunset. I like to be reminded that there is always an end to everything, sunset seems to tell me that ‘hey, it’s going to end and it’s the happiest time.’

Know what you want to do, hold the thought firmly, and do every day what should be done, and every sunset will see you that much nearer to your goal.
