Randy Pausch. What I learned from him.

In the end.

... all of us will eventually leave this world. It is going to happen. Maybe an hour from now, or maybe in 5 years time.

More important than figuring out our 'expiry date', is how we are going to fill that count down moment in our lives until our time is up.

Is it too late to change who you are? To get what you want in life?

The answer to that is easy.

No, it is not too late. As long as you know who you want to become.
Not changing your look. Or changing your clothing fashion sense. Those are not important.

We are talking about SUBSTANTIAL matter here.

I have come to realize recently in identifying what is important in my life.

What do you want to do with your life?

List them up.

And do it.

Make it happen.

But don't wait too long. Because one day you may find out that you have lesser time than you think you have.

Thank you Randy.

The golden moment

It is that time of the year when we are all usually become sleepy by 3pm. Ecstatically happy at sunset. Bombarded periodically by acute post-prandial narcolepsy from then onward.

At 7.38pm - all the oncall fellah and some who are not on call - would gather around at the MO lounge equipped with the accoustic mode of singing bellies.

Lovely atmosphere. We share food and laughter.

This is much better than breaking fast at a 5 star hotel alone.

This is life at its best.

Home sweet home

A quiet on-call night like this is rare to find. It is like a pearl lost in the ocean for thousand of years waiting to be discovered by a lonely diver.

I'm longed for serenity.

I am home.

The way things are...

As the future slowly unfolded to me with every passing second, I find that the path is clearer than I could have ever envisioned it before.

Every relationship matures in its own unique way.
Not all romance should ended up as marriage.

Some relationship would be better off evolve into a long lasting friendship which in a way is a happily ever after ending too, considering the benefits it brings to both parties.

I learned that lesson the hard way.
But, it is a life-lesson that I wouldn't trade for anything.

Although the way things are right now, was not the way I wanted it to be.
But it is the way things should be.

It is the right way.
