Date Walk

It's my day off today and I get to do what I wanna do. Yay!

I always want to sleep-in on my so-called day off, but I never get it. :/ The body clock is just so used to waking up early. Sad but true. Anyway, the plan for today is to review for my OET Exam next month, but firstly, I did the chores this morning which I really like doing (No kidding, I do like it when I'm not super tired. And yes, I'm weird). Cooked us lunch and had a siesta. Then n the arvo, Gilbert and I decided to have a walk! Yes, we are going to get this healthy thing happening! Woohoo! :D We decided to have a walk towards St. Kilda beach from home, South Yarra, and we did it! Decent walk I should say -- 4.38km, one way. Took us around 50 mins just with a normal pace of walking.


Haven't had a long walk for a while, say a year. The last time I had a record on my walking/running was in November 2012! That's really bad and it made me think, I should really be walking more. But we were good and we coped well. Weather was nice for walking too! :)

We had a bit of a rest when we got there. Legs are tightening up at this stage, because I think I didn't get to do stretching before we started, which was really wrong! But oh well, we still are pretty good at this stage.

And the view when we walked down the pier at the beach... The wind strongly blowing... The smell of the beach... Aaaaahh! Nice feeling :) We are happy we did this today! More walks to come soon, maybe?
After a while, we headed back home. On our way we decided to have dinner first so we ended up dining in the chinese resto near our place... And oh, it was yum! When we got home, I still had a chance to do my OET review. I have to say, "Day off, well spent!." I'm a happy cat. *meow* =^_^=

Mobile Blogging App

While waiting for Momi to finish with her driving test.

I think the spirit of blogging is really in me. I dunno why because I'm seriously not good at it but I guess I'm really trying hard. Now, I'm using my smart phone to blog and I've just downloaded an app for blogging. I think this is a trial on how good this app actually is. I've never used my phone for blogging before so if this will do it's job well, then this will be permanent in my phone.

Cheers!

Tremble

I was able to write a poem today. I guess the feeling in me are so great that I once again managed to write my feeling through a poem. I haven't done this for so long and I guess the last time was when I composed a song, and it started from writing a poem. It actually amazed me on how I was able to finish this poem in a short span of time... Like all the words are just flowing in my head as I was feeling all of it. Oh wow! I haven't experienced this kind of overflowing feeling for so long, and I didn't expect that once again, this kind of feelings will show. Feelings, oh, feelings... I'm full of them and it scares me... Really scares me. *sighs*

So, here it is. I hope whoever is reading this will like it.

Tremble

It's been a long while since I've felt this,
Like little pins piercing my limbs.
Nostalgic moments creeping in,
Seems like I cannot feel anything...
But the ice and fire battling together in me,
I know somewhere in me is hurting.

Is it the heart that feels everything?
When the only duty it has to do is keep on pumping?
What good is a heart then?
When it makes you feel all the burden?

Oh, yes! It's that feeling...
The fear that lurks in...
The unknown madness that looks at you with a grin...
And then you say,
"I am trembling."

LAST HOPE

It's been a long while since the last time I've bonded with my Zach (my guitar). Today, I actually felt the need to bond with him. I've been listening to this one particular song by one of my favorite bands, Paramore. The song is called "Last Hope", and the meaning of the song... it touches the very core of 'me' at the moment. I remember myself blogging about hope not long ago and yes, it really is what's keeping me alive. For the past few days, many things has happened and in all honesty, I'm holding on to hope. Hope that everything will be okay and the sadness that I feel within me will change into joy.

So here's a recording video I made tonight. I learned playing the song for only two hours so sorry for the mistakes, or if the recording is not very good. I tried and that's what matters, right? Hope you enjoy. The meaning of the song is really nice and I hope it will inspire you, too, as much as it's inspired me.




"Last Hope"

I don't even know myself at all
I thought I would be happy by now
The more I try to push it
I realise – gotta let go of control


Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Just let it happen


It's just a spark
But it's enough to keep me going
And when it's dark out, no one's around
It keeps glowing


Every night I try my best to dream
Tomorrow makes it better
Then I wake up to the cold reality
And not a thing has changed


But it will happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen


It's just a spark
But it's enough to keep me going
And when it's dark out, no one's around
It keeps glowing


It's just a spark
But it's enough to keep me going
And when it's dark out, no one's around
It keeps glowing


And the salt in my wounds isn't burning anymore than it used to
It's not that I don't feel the pain, it's just I'm not afraid of hurting anymore
And the blood in these veins isn't pumping any less than it ever has
And that's the hope I have, the only thing I know that's keeping me alive

Alive


Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen
Gotta let it happen


It's just a spark
But it's enough to keep me going
(So if I let go of control now, I can be strong)
And when it's dark out, no one's around
It keeps glowing


It's just a spark
But it's enough to keep me going
(So if I keep my eyes closed, with nobody home)
And when it's dark out, no one's around
It keeps glowing
