Trial and Error

These last two weeks, my creative brain has been challenged. When I left Vancouver I had a big goal in mind and plans on how to use my 4 months 'sabbatical' period. Sadly, not much has been accomplished during this time and my 4 months period is almost up.

So, today, I start reconnecting with my creativity side and decided to paint (using photoshop of course). While it's not the greatest picture, I am quite proud of it - considering it's my first try. And yes, i got some pointers from internet (although the guy made it sound sooo easy >_<). So, here it is. If you have any suggestion or input regarding how to learn to draw, please let me know. Thank you!

Safe in Her Home

I had a little chat with my brother yesterday and he told me that the baby is now home and safe. He shared that the baby is restless when she was in the hospital but calm and happy when she is finally home. Wow... even a baby can tell when she is home. I guess that's why God created a family, so that a baby can have a place to call home.

So, home sweet home, my little niece.... Can't wait to see you in person. ^_^

A Newborn Niece!!!

Okay, I created this blog with great ideas in mind, but apparently couldn't follow through with it. So, I haven't wrote anything about stop signs in my life not because there aren't any lately, but because I got too many that I got distracted from time to time. Well, this time, it's a little bit different.

A news came to us two days ago and it was big enough to make me stop and simply amazed for these last 2 days. It's a big stop sign, but a very beautiful one. Yes, my brother and his wife just gave a birth to a beautiful baby girl.

She is a tiny infant, yet, my whole family seems to evolve around her. Seeing her is just simply breathtaking. Vulnerable and powerless as she is, she forces us to see the world from a different point of view - a world of hope and joy.

Should I Smile?

When the storm is my only scene

When the rainbow is out of sight

When the world gets darker

When I become smaller

Should I smile?

When wrong is right

When unfairness is just

When money is everything

When I am nothing

Should I smile?

When I ask for something

And got nothing,

When I run away from life

And got chased down by its pressure,

Should I smile?

Life is short, yes I know

Rose is pretty, that I agree

But if you were in my shoe

Would you still smile?

Humans are interesting, you see

When they cry, they hate themselves

But when they can’t cry, they pity themselves

When they are depressed, they want to kill themselves

But when they face death, they hold on tight to their dreams

Should I smile?.... I ask myself

Should I smile?.... I ask the world

One thing I know...

I would never give up my smile.

Stop Signs of Life

Life is interesting
When we look back, years seem to fly by so quickly
When we look forward, weekend seems so far away

People say to stop and smell the rose,
Bible says God created the world for 6 days and rested on the 7th day.
I don't know about you,
But it works out for me just fine.

You see....
Life has its own stop signs.
Sometimes it happens according to our plan,
That's what we call a vacation.
But sometimes it happens very sudden,
That's what we call an accident.
Sometimes it lures you into it,
That's what we call an escape.
But sometimes it forces you to follow it,
That's what we call a challenge.
Sometimes it is filled with events,
That's what we call a celebration.
But sometimes it is still and quiet,
That's what we call a rest.

No matter what kind of stop signs life has for you,
It is designed to make you ready for your next journey.

This is a simple blog
With simple words
It's not about the destination
It's about the STOP SIGNS OF LIFE
