"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?

I Kissed A Frog Who Became A Prince & That is That

I've had just enough time to...  kiss a frog that became a prince...

Taken of the lily pond and dozens of little green frogs in the Borneo Highlands... 
(if you can find them...)

I met a frog who told me
“I am a frog who was once a prince
And will be again if you kiss me”
“Me? I thought you need  a princess for that!”
“Can you imagine a princess doing it?”
“Then, it had to be you”
“And what makes you think I will?”
“You’re a dreamer, aren’t you?”
“That I am.”
“That is why
So I kissed the frog that talked
And it became a prince and that is that.

Keane - "The Frog Prince"

An old fairytale told me
The simple heart will be prized again
A toad will be our king
And ugly ogres are heroes

Then you'll shake
Your fist at the sky
"Oh why did I rely
On fashions and small fry?"


  1. They're so well camouflaged!
    "That I am."
    "That is why."
    That's nice! :D

    A 1000 Reasons (busy... slow)
    Up in the Borneo Highlands a few hours away from Kuching city, I wandered one day which took me to the border with Kalimantan, the Indonesian part of the island of Borneo. It was a very beautiful and peaceful resort which is not frequented by many people. Some golfers may take the trouble to make it up there for some highland golfing. And there is also a Buddhist retreat for people who want to have some Zen moments. Although it is a very pleasant place, not many tourist made it up there. As I wandered around I chanced upon a small lily pond with a few white lilies. When I walked nearer, it suddenly sprang to life with several dozens sudden movements. It was only then that I realized that the seemingly tranquil pond is theeming with little green frogs. I had to move vey gently not to startle them. This little frog thought I did not notice him because I move very gently until I got near to shoot him. It was undecided whether it is safer to pretend to be part of the surrounding or to jump straight away :)

    you walk the paths
    with an eye similiar to that of Basho...
    mixing the words with the image...
    it does not take away from the genius to mix them...
    he might have done that if he had a camera too...
    In the Highlands
    In the highlands, in the country places,
    Where the old plain men have rosy faces,
    And the young fair maidens
    Quiet eyes;
    Where essential silence cheers and blesses,
    And for ever in the hill-recesses
    Her more lovely music
    Broods and dies—
    O to mount again where erst I haunted;
    Where the old red hills are bird-enchanted,
    And the low green meadows
    Bright with sward;
    And when even dies, the million-tinted,
    And the night has come, and planets glinted,
    Lo, the valley hollow
    O to dream, O to awake and wander
    There, and with delight to take and render,
    Through the trance of silence,
    Quiet breath!
    Lo! for there, among the flowers and grasses,
    Only the mightier movement sounds and passes;
    Only winds and rivers,
    Life and death.
    ~~Robert Louis Stevenson
