My Summer Love – The Shopping Extravaganza

I don’t like shopping very much. The thought of looking through so many things and having to decide which one to buy overwhelms me. It is the most annoying thing in the world. However, since a while ago, I have been working on making my feelings my strength. In everything I do, I have been trying to look beyond what I feel to what I want. What I want are all the things I need in order to make my life more comfortable. Every time I look around and do not find what I need, it is because I have…

My Summer Love – The Margarita Glass Incident

I like my margarita glasses. They are very colourful. I don’t really like to drink alcohol though. I like having different glasses to drink stuff in. To me, it’s not really about the drink but the glass itself. The feeling you get in your heart as soon as you pick up that glass. Wooo! It’s awesome. Like being on top of the world. In an effort to make the most of my summer at work, I decided to take a Margarita glass  to work. You know, to drink my water and juice in ;). As I had feared, it caught…

My Summer Love – The First Drawing

I began drawing a while ago as part of ‘This is Me’ art project and these days, I have been learning to draw trees. As I was riding my bike through the park, I saw a small bench in a nice shaded spot in front of the lake and I began to complete my Summer Love poster there. As the poster was getting boring, I observed the scenery in front of me. Suddenly, I wanted to draw it. I had never drawn a scenery before as I wanted to start small but my heart said to give it a try…

My Summer Love – The Bike Rides

Today, I just wanted to go for a bike ride. No phone. No sketchbook. No nothing. Just a simple bike ride to enjoy the summer breeze. Sometimes we get too caught up in capturing everything that we forget to actually enjoy the moment. Today was that day – the day that made me drop it all. It was a bit cloudy but not cold. You know, the day when the summer breeze lets it all down to pick up all the worries from the edges of your body? As I rode through the park with one arm gliding through the…

My Summer Love – Dear Sun

Dear Sun, You are quite rare up here, you know. There’s parts of world where people feel like roasted chicken. They could use less of you there, you know. You could come up here more often instead. We do love you too. 🙂 And the clouds? Uff, why have you guys not made friends with each other yet? Always getting in each others way. If you could stay and the clouds could get out of your way, it would be so warm. Warm like “so hot” for others and warm like “I can finally take off my sweater” for me.…

My Summer Love – Summer Sunsets on the Lake

The best part of any summer evening is the perfect sunset that embraces the sky with its beautiful colours and reflects on water to show you who you are and what’s on your mind. Sunset for me is a time of reflection; a time to drag myself out of my couch, out of my apartment, to the lake – where God awaits. During this time, I am braver than normal, more honest than normal and much more comfortable than normal. Most importantly, in the comfort of different colours spreading throughout the sky like wild fire, I am calmly and comfortably,…

Love is Forever

I often say that love is forever. It is not something I think about or question; it is something that comes right out of my heart with so much determination that it breaks through every single doubt. Love is forever….But what makes me so sure, so certain? Million relationships make and break every single day in different parts of the world, how is it that I believe that love is forever? How is it possible for love to be forever? Contrary to the popular belief that in order to have love, you must have people around you, I feel that…

My Summer Love – The Church Bells

I really love my bike. One day, I decided to take my bike to work and found out mid-way that my tires were almost flat. After work, I went to get the tires pumped but did not succeed. Disappointed at having wasted my dollar, I went back home and decided to try it again another time. A few days later, I made the effort to drag myself out and try it one more time. And yayyy, I was finally successful. It was finally time to explore the world. As I biking around the neighbourhood, I came to a complete stop…
