Time flies when you're having FUN

Time flies when you're having a good time and that is exactly how I feel right now. Having been here for over a week and I am already loving every single experience... from the people I've met, the yummy local food, the strong wind and cold weather, the fresh air and clean environment, the laid-back life of the locals, the loaded book stores, the delicious ice-creams, the beautiful parks, the lovely flowers and greens, the chubby animals, and the list is never-ending.

I've had so much FUN!

Again... time flies and soon I will be back to reality and that means I have to choose which path to continue my journey. No doubt it's a tough decision however, deep inside my heart, I already have the answer. My challenge is to bring out the courage and bury the ego.

I've still got a few more days here... gonna enjoy every single minute of it!

Chi-town experience!

Bubbles and myself... our first trip to Chicago.
It has been an amazing experience for both of us!

I love the beautiful flowers, greens and weather.
So refreshing and makes me feel life is so remarkable... Why not be happy all the time?

Every single person is unique. I just want to be myself...

My first experience at 103 stories high up on Willis Tower!
Scary yet I was so proud of myself! Even though I don't dare to look down and had to crawl out because want to take evidence of me being there :P nyek!

But it's definitely worth it! Look at the view... nothing can compare...

It has been an amazing experience in Chicago... Given another chance, I would want to be there a little longer to explore more of the city and culture, the people... the delicious food and incredible shopping places!

More importantly, to be able to share this experience with Bubbles... makes it even more special...

my pilgrimage to the land far far away

I feel so warm even though the weather is now at about 10*C and I am so awake even though it's five in the morning with the strong wind blowing strongly outside the window.

Can you guess how many hours in total did I traveled from KL to Chicago?

Traveling hours including transit to Singapore and the nap time before boarding to Hong Kong with all the delay and finally landed to Chicago O'hare Airport.

Guys, it adds up to a total of 39 hours.

Thank god I was able to sleep on the flight. Thank god for the sleeping pill. I think I should buy more for the flight home. Haha!

Also thank god for all the helpful airport attendants and the people I met on the flight. The attendants have made my journey a good one and the people I met... they have helped me kill time! Not forgetting, thank god for Paulo Coelho. His books kept me occupied for most of the time.

However, it is all worth it. Being welcomed at the airport by Bubbles and his dozen of gorgeous red roses and embracing me with his hugs and kisses... it was amazing!
Today is my the first morning in Chicago and the weather is very cold indeed. But who cares?! I'm being kept warm by Bubbles...

my first bouquet of sweetness from Bubbles...

Is May just another month for you?

Aaaahh... the long awaited May is finally here! May is certainly going to be another life changing month for me as I will be traveling to a land far far away for a much needed time for spiritual recuperation.

Being in a world filled with so much animosity, hatred, bitterness, sarcasm, competition, anger, and etc... It is truly exhausting and disturbing to the soul. When we are running in the same circle every single day, the directions will naturally be diverted and passion will diminish and lost in time. A friend told me that the most difficult part of a person's life is finding out their true passion. What is the worst possible scenario than having found out my true passion but allowing them to collect dust while I run around in that circle full of animosity and such?

Anyhow, May will be a good month and it is time to reunite with my love who has been away for almost two months. I can almost feel his arms around me as he hugged and kissed me... The saying "Distance makes the heart grow fonder" has proven its point and my heart is missing that someone so much that it is bursting with eagerness to savor the love again... no more lagging video-cam on Skype, no more waiting by MSN, no more expensive SMS and calls, no more separation, no more lonely Fridays and weekends, no more fake hugs and kisses, no more counting down... the list seems endless!

Let me count down just one last time... and this time it's only TWO days!! tick tock tick tock...

Wait for me... I'll be there in a jiffy!!
