11 April 2009
The chilly velvet sun was setting fast. Cold wind blew hard on my face. Suddenly my phone rang.
"Are you there? Key I'll be there in 5 minutes" she hang up.
All I could find within that crucial moment was a glass panel and the reflection was nothing more than a scruffy looking middle-age guy staring back at me. The 13 hour-flight had completely worn him out. He got fine tremor in his hands, which could easily be a sign of hyperthyroidism or early Parkinsonism. Or was he just simply nervous?
I walked back to the main street.
Moments passed. Then I saw someone who looked familiar, roughly 50 metres away. She looked directly at me and seemed to have lock in her target. With remarkably steady and confident steps, she closed in fast, killing the distance between us without mercy.
Oh no. Here she comes. Ok you know what to say. You've rehearsed it. Now.. now say something.
With a blink of an eye she finally stood there right in front me.
My throat was as dry as sand. Nothing came out.
"Hi" she smiled.
I froze. Think I forgot to breath for a while.
Then all of sudden, she punched me in the shoulder.
With that everything turned all right.
It feels just like heaven.

After all this time, I reckon destiny is a mystery in many ways. Is it a predetermined event by God that waiting to be discovered by us the mortal beings? Or do we really have to push ourselves in achieving what we really want in our hearts.
The answer to that is an anyone's guess. But for now I believe deep in my heart that every single action no matter how small.. is a destiny set in motion.
Tomorrow we'll meet, for the first time. Among the presence of hundreds of strangers. What shall I say to her. I guess there's only one way to find out. But before that could happen, first I will have to embark on a 10, 552 km journey to a land where I have never set my foot on (yeah you're right Mr Frodo, step aside sir).
And since I'm sure this one never happened to me before, tomorrow morning I'll whisper to myself something different.

Cardiac care unit.
4 new cases of heart attacks.
- among them is a man of 32 years of age. A smoker.
A man much younger than myself.
It made me think...
- How much time do I have?
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;they are vexatious to the spirit.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
it is as perennial as the grass.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
