I find myself throughly excited whenever I feel like writing. When I have a thousand thoughts I would love to put into words that are somewhat comprehensible. I’m checking in today not at midnight but as the sun bids goodbye for the last time this week.
I found myself taking some time off work as I got back from a crazy 5 days in Seoul. I’ve almost forgotten how it feels like just laying in bed, enveloped by the warmth and comfort of my sheets. Well, I did invest in insanely smooth linen and it’s crazy how I only felt the immense pleasure of enjoying it now. But hey, that’s not the point of this thoughtpost.
It’s been awhile since I’ve written a thoughtpost haven’t I?
Life has been overwhelming. Work has been piling up and I barely have enough time to whip out my laptop to document midnight thoughts like before. If you’re reading this and checking back sometimes, I just wanted to say thank you.
I just visited my grandmother’s resting place again today. It also dawned on me how beautiful her name was – 林爱好。To think I didn’t pay that much attention to that and only realising this now. She was definitely what her name suggests – kind, brave, strong, charismatic and everything to me. But well, let’s get on with this short piece.
Hello you, I hope you are still checking back every once in awhile. I’ve been away from this space for a couple of weeks (or maybe longer) as I was busy with this. Now that everything is more or less more stable, I’m able to find a breather and sit down to write to you guys. I hope that’s okay and thank you for all the kind messages you have dropped me across the weeks via email/DMs. I truly spur me on… SO! THIS IS WHAT I WAS SO BUSY WITH! I present to you, kāi – A dream two years in the making.
We’ve all got best friends and lovers.
I’m sure we’ve also been through our fair share of disappointments and heartaches.
Time and time again we pour out our heart and soul like we’ve never learnt from our mistakes.
To always see people as they seem, to believe in the love ( can you even call it that) that they bring to the table.
We’ve been told to never let our guard down, to never be vulnerable.
But time and time again we let ourselves down.
It’s amazing how much friends could teach you across the years. Scroll for the visual story from the first night of my early birthday celebrations with ladies that have been my pillars of strength for more than 10 years. Read the rest of the diary entry at the end.
