Patrons of The Inn

2012 the end of many things and the start of many more to come

Its strange how i found the hyper link to this "Long forgotten place". The Inn, i call it. This was the place where i would pen down the many things or thoughts that i go through in life. The happy moments when i was very much in love with the girl of my dreams, the pain when the relationship ended, the challenges i face in life and the many things that i felt was worth sharing... like my love for Blizzard games.

That being said, Hello dear readers / me myself and I. 2012! its the year i lost a good 80% of my savings into a failed business partnership. It marks a good 1year since my Relationship with Edda ended... Its the year i hit 27. So... i guess the start of 2012 is not as desirable as it seems.

In the midst of all the negative events happening around me i find myself drawing closer to my family and God. Its the only 2 reasons why i carry on living life to the best i can. No matter how nasty your parents can be when you were young, know that deep down every stroke of the cane that they had inflicted to you was for your good, they didn't mean to hurt you but it was their way of making you remember your mistakes.. through pain. And the strange thing is when we grow up in life we do occasionally stumble and fall, and we hurt. We would then find our way back to the arms of our parents... comforted and loved. My faith brings me back to God, i wish he would talk to me like Dad does... but then again he does so in his special way - The Holy Bible. He has given me the strength to forgive when i find it beyond my human flesh to do so and his words are my pillars and the foundation of how i intend to live life here on earth.

Here is a little something i would like to share with you;

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”

keep you friends close and enemies closer

For the strangest reason i have decided to visit this dust covered blog after a really really long time. As life passes us by, one cant help but wonder about the many life changing experiences that he/she has encountered. Especially when you receive unexpected news from strangers about your very own circle of friends... news of them which would change their perception on that very same relationship friends share.

Maybe they have stepped on the tail of someone whom they should not have. So dear friends, i would advice you to be tactful with words. You never know who's side of the story yours might fall to. Remember the old saying? the walls have ears and no secret stays a secret forever? well i guess that's true.

Someone wise once told me "your only true friends are those who seek you out even when you are poor or broken" the rest are but passersby in your life.

something to think about.

"All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages.

At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms;

And then the whining school-boy, with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail
Unwillingly to school.

And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow.

Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honour, sudden and quick in quarrel,
Seeking the bubble reputation
Even in the cannon's mouth.

And then the justice,
In fair round belly with good capon lin'd,
With eyes severe and beard of formal cut,
Full of wise saws and modern instances;
And so he plays his part.

The sixth age shifts
Into the lean and slipper'd pantaloon,
With spectacles on nose and pouch on side;
His youthful hose, well sav'd, a world too wide
For his shrunk shank; and his big manly voice,

Turning again toward childish treble, pipes
And whistles in his sound. Last scene of all,
That ends this strange eventful history,
Is second childishness and mere oblivion;

— Jaques (Act II, Scene VII, lines 139-166)

Two long months I have been away from my "The Inn". Many things have happened since this blog was started, I left the Singapore Sports Council to pursue the dream i always longed for - a career in Singapore Airlines. By Gods grace i made it through my 2nd shot of the SQ interviews and there on my journey began...

It has been close to 2 years since i have been a cabin crew and i have been blessed in many ways and aspect of my life. I travel the world, soaking in the sight and sound of every country I visit, experiencing and seeing the 7 wonders of the world through the eyes of my own. I am financially blessed to be able to spread the kind of love I’d always wanted to share onto my family and friends. I meet people from all walks of life and some are now the best of friends i have. I found the ability to love again, to open my heart to a very special person. I learned patience, humility, wisdom and many more attributes no other job has to offer.

Alike to dawn and dusk, black and white, angels and the devil there is always a darker side to things in this world. I have had my fair share of anger, pain and heart breaks within this period of time. Sometimes you feel so alone, work and relationships take a toll on you, but even tho the body is broken, the spirit is strong and i thank God for strength till this present day.

As i sit here alone in this luxurious hotel room of the all famous and renounce Marriott hotel in Texas Houston i ask myself if its time to move on. To take a leap of faith into the unknown once again, breaching my comfort zone, leaving "the life" behind and taking up another job that might bring me closer to my dream future. "What do I have to lose"? - the bad memories? and what will I stand to gain? - fame and fortune?

I stand on the edge...
