Gemstone ♥

It's another ordinary Saturday night, except it is breezy
due to the heavy rain in the noon.
Logged on my hotmail and read through some e-mail after dinner.
Inadvertently found an article about different months' birthstone.
My curiosity got aroused and so I started google on images of gemstones.
Here is what i got, all arranged in alphabetical order and with the matching birth month in bracket.

Amethyst 紫晶 (February)

Aquamarine 海蓝宝石 (March, October)
(Personally my favorite! ♥)

 Blue Topaz 蓝黄玉 (December)

 Emerald 绿宝石 (May)

Moonstone 月长石 (June)

Onyx  缟玛瑙 (July)

Opal 蛋白石/猫眼石 (October)

Ruby 红宝石 (January, July)

Sapphire 蓝宝石 (April, September)

Sardonyx 瑀 (August)

Tanzanite 坦桑 (December)

Turquoise 绿松石 (December)

Yellow Topaz 黄玉 (November)

Some birthday months may be symbolized with more than one gemstone as different regions and countries may have different culture, tradition and beliefs in the meaning and luck the stone would brought to that particular birth month.

Life is just like flowers.
It blooms and it fade away in just a blink of an eye.

If i'd have to answer
"What will be your shortest moment in life?"
I'd say...
The moment where everything seems to be so beautiful & wonderful.

By knowing this truth,
it added a great sense of insecurity.

You wouldn't know when will the bell of 12 o'clock rings.
It could possibly be any next minute.

Once the clock stroke,
the magical spell will gone forever.
Golden carriage turns into pumpkin,
horses into mice,
 beautiful ball gown into just a piece of rag...

However, ironically,
it's beautiful also because it's short.
Just like the fireworks.
Please allow me...

'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh oh oh
As you shoot across the sky

Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh oh oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down'

Lets live our life like beautiful fireworks!

The Enlightenment from the Little Prince

Recently been reading a book titled The Little Prince
Have long been heard of ppl mentioning the little prince
but dont really know about the story
so when i saw this book in the Leo Bookstore at Island Plaza
i bought it home :)
And now, im in love with this book 
it somehow reflected the something in me
or should i say, 'they matched'.

It was saying, 
the grown-ups love to see things from the surface n judge from the outside.
They see only tangible things
the intangible one was always being neglected
n it was usually the most precious one.

For instance, 
when you tell them that you have made a new fren
they never ask you questions about the essential matters such as
"What does his voice sound like?"
"What games does he love best?"
"Does he collect butterflies?"

they asked: "How old is he?"
"How many brothers has he?"
"How tall is he?"

that is what differentiate the grown-ups and the kids
the grown-ups loves figures
they think they can only learn something about the person from these figures

If you were say to the grown-ups:
"I saw a beautiful house made of rosy brick, french windows, and doves on the roof"
they would not get any idea of the house at all.
You'd have to say:
"I saw a house that cost 3million!"
then they'd claim: 
"Wow, what a pretty house that is!"

I realised
The older we become, the more 'ordinary' we are
we have to be submissive in order to fit in the society
following the rules...the regulations...the norms...even the thought
proving 'we are the same' in order to get their approval
and so we wont be alienated

Many was born to be musicians and artists
they had so much talent when they were kids
but ended up grown up into such an 'ordinary' working group
struggling to be someone who they think they 'should be'
working from 9 to 5
repeating the same thing everyday
doing things they don't even like or enjoy doing
living paycheck to paycheck
months to months
years to years 
n called it a 'life'

Is that what life really should be?
If yes, how boring it is!
is that reli what they want?
do they reli feeling happy?
wouldnt they regret for not brave enough in pursuing their dreams when they gonna past?
is staying in the comfort zone reli feels comfort n happy?

Since they struggled so much n do not feel happy at all
why dont they just pursue their dreams n do something they reli enjoy doing?
wat is the reason stopping them from pursuing their dreams?

The answer is always the same
because of MONEY
they claimed:
"DREAMS and REALITY are always not the same"
"DREAMS cant feed our stomach"

But the problem is,
i dont see many who followed the ordinary path really success financially
many are still complaining about 'not enough'
living in debt
dreaming to be a millionaire

If to say
the consequence of pursuing own dream is the worst
i dont see following the ordinary path has any better than worst.

In light of this,
why dont we just pursue our own dream since both has almost-the-same-worst risk?

What do you think? :)

Waiting for my calling

Being kinda lost n confused recently...
am i wanting too much at once?
asking myself
am i too greedy? 

im enthusiastic in many thgs
i enjoyed learning all sorts of diff special thgs
 i just cant stop my curiosity

i do what i love
n i go after it
that's me

it sounds kinda a gud thg isnt it

but here comes the problem
i ended taking up many things at the same time
n i doubted if i can do best in each
as my concentration level has been divided
even in Marketing study encourages Niche Marketing
to offset d risk in serving no one n no where

linked it to myself
im afraid i might ended up serving no where
know something about everythg
but be good at NOTHING

life is an option
making choices
n specialize on it
that's the norms

but wont it b boring to just do one thing in ur entire life?

searching for the answer
waiting for the calling
