"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

Everyone’s Free (to Wear Sunglasses)

I've had just enough time to...   wear sunscreen and sunglasses :D

Taken in the morning market of Kota Kinabalu just before the sun is high on the sky.

Trust me,
Everyone ought to wear sunglasses
Before facing the sun.
Sunscreen may cover more
But if you protect your sight
It will be quite alright.

When the world is too bright
It will let in just the correct light.
But remember to take it off
When it is approaching night.
For when all around you is getting dark
It is best to trust your own sight.

(Inspired by Mary Schmich - Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)


This humorous, witty and charming "commencement speech" by Mary Schmich will be what I would have loved to hear if I am among the graduating class. But no, the one we heard was dried like sand, rough like sandpaper and probably palatable only to chickens in a coop. So enjoy this imaginary speech that is full of great advice including scientific one like wearing sunscreen (ha ha love that! what an opening!) and I even throw in the song by Baz Lurmann for you to enjoy!

    A 1000 Reasons
    This was taken while wandering in the Kota Kinabalu Sunday flea market where you can find all kinds of everything including "grave fruits", blind masseur, white python, tropical fishes, all kinds of delicacies and of course sunglasses! So I could not resist going snap snap and the old man selling a few sad looking fishes asked me for a dollar for taking a shot of them. He was just trying but no luck. The blind street musician sang a mournful tune that jars with the lively, happy atmosphere. He deserved the dollar for standing on his feet singing even if it is a sad love song. The only frightening thing about the grave fruit is the name, it is milky white, silky smooth and taste like - milk! It is a carnival! So if you're in KK, stay for the Sunday market, you will not regret. :D
