Patience... is a virtue

Tuesday, February 06, 2018

What do you know about patience? According to Google, Patience is the capacity to accept or tolerate delay, problems, or suffering without becoming annoyed or anxious.

We all have patience instilled within us. Each and every one of us have a different level of patience. We have tolerance level that we have set and keep building it from time to time. A good example of patience is… raising kids. I cannot imagined how my parents have high patience towards us since we were born.

Among the siblings, I was a bad-ass child and put my parents into panic mode and get to their nerves more often. I had few stitches at the shoulder joint due to a big fall from the stairs and hit the machete. I walked the burning coals which was left on the ground unattended after my grandfather finished BBQ and in return, my feet cut opened by the doctor to remove the blood clot and prevent it from any infection. I had a bad bicycle accident, cuts and bruises on my hands and knee, blood flowing the whole leg. My left arm broken twice. Can you imagine how my parents react to it?

Every parents want the best for their kids. Education, foods, health and well being. I can’t thank them enough for providing me the best they could. Life is not easier. I’m grateful. I’m grateful they have high tolerance towards us.

What about patience with your partner? Your best friends? Your colleagues at work? We have set patience level accordingly without you even realizing it. It was not built yesterday. It is ever evolving.

Hello 2018!

2017 has been a great year. I travelled a lot. A totaled of seven trips around ASEAN countries, an achievement for myself too. Travelling has been a part of me since I started working. I crave to fly high be it near or far as long as I can board the airplane and fly! 

A few of my trips really opens my eyes and to look life at different views. The first of my memorable trip was a solo trip to Boracay during my 25th birthday. Some people jokes about being 25 and relate it to quarter life crisis. LOL. Don’t take it seriously. They don’t know what you have been through in life. You know yourself better than anyone.

I was in Boracay for a good four days. Most of my time there filled with activities (snokerling, beaches, island hoppings, club hoppings and etc) but every night I sit at the same spot looking at the beach. Hearing the soothing sea waves. Staring at billions of stars. I cried inside. I’m grateful.

I asked the same question to myself whenever I was at my lowest point. Isn’t life is interesting?

I had a new hair cut by a barber today. We had a good chat and he said to me… you have a good life. I’m forever grateful.

How’s everything? 

That is the first question I would ask to my girlfriend if we have issues and things didn’t go well. It is like an ice-breaking session to start fresh, calm and being rationalise. I probably assume too much that I know how a relationship works but little did I know each relationship is different and unique. Our character defined our individuality. 

It has been a great journey so far since December 2015. This is the real relationship where emotions, efforts, and etc are put into a test. I haven’t been in a relationship for many years since middle school. She was too. I couldn’t agree if we both assume a lot of things about each other. As if we already know the person after 5 years. The truth is... People are evolving and so we are. For example, I know she likes coffee but who knows she dislike today and forever. Things could have changed, right? 

I’m grateful that we stand strong together through ups and downs. There are time when we were so high loving each other and hates each other so much. People says Love is crazy. Indeed. Time, effort and feelings are all work together but.. we learn to compromise. Compromise on many things to make sure we are working towards common goals. 

I know myself is not a romantic type of boyfriend. Probably hopeless but not clueless. She knows I’m that hopeless but I know we are progressing very well. 

Let’s hope for a better day :)

What's on your mind?

Everything. 

I didn't realise that we are already in the second half of the year where everybody is busy to be on track again. I don't know what I have achieved in the first half of the year. Work is as usual, BUSY

Well... we are living at the tough time at the moment due to low oil price but this too shall pass. We already seen this in the past...history keeps repeating, arent they?

The only thing that motivates me to look forward is to travel somewhere new. I'm not a wanderlust nor  homebody. I'm in a middle, just about right to control my desire to travel. 

Let's see what I can do with the remaining half. Cheers! :)



Maestro de Campo Island (SIBALE)

Thursday, April 27, 2017

Went to this paradise in 2014, 2016 and recently this year! I got the chance to have a quick tour around the island and see this amazing island up close and personal. 

I lost count how many beaches we went to but one thing I can say... it is indeed a home. A home I called a paradise.

Enjoy! :)
