I wrote...

So many times that I attempted to write about some part of my life journey especially my childhood and my early education.. But my finger just don’t feel like clicking about it. The time when I have loads of idea to write about it is really when I am driving or somewhere else. My plan is to have my personal recorder ready all the time so that I could still download my thought while driving etc.

Right now I am reading “Life is an Open Secret” by Sis Zabrina. Very very interesting piece of writing…it has become my bedtime story or while I am massaging my foot before going to bed or after waking up in the morning. A moment which I am with my own mind…alone.

Now is 12:40 am. I can’t sleep, so I thot that I had better do my work to cover my traveling time and away from office next week. This year will be a quite full of activities for me at work as I am supposed to get the project proposal kick-off and get the funding. Sometimes I wish that I had that moment alone, peace in my mind which I used to experience during my student life. One thing I realized is that offlate even my mind is up to the speed but my body resists so much. Maybe I am still not fully recovered from flu which attacks me since before New Year. I pray to HIM that I am back to normal state. Much that I want to accomplish for both in this world and thereafter. What I need is a strength and good health…. And blessing from HIM.

A challenging working life is what I have to face everyday. I have to be on my toes all the time. That in a way shapes me up to be somewhat extrovert, critical, questioning and always has something to express what I think. I am seeing myself back to what people used to call me… IRON LADY. In the midst of my not so strong physical fitness, I trained my body to keep building strength through cycling. Weekend is the time for me to do that. At least 10 km/day has been my target.

Next week I will be going back to the state which I left some beautiful memories during part of my teenage life and school time. Negeri Dibawah Bayu… that is.

My eyes cannot open anymore now. I better go and rest and wake up fresh in the morning to live my life for another day. Insyaallah.

abe Id,...will do...tapi kena cari mood for writing that. Sekarang ni mood writing cerita pasal diri ad kurang sikit. Sebabnya sehari kat office dok create cerita technical. By the time balik rumah dah exhausted...heheh..walau apapun AM akan tulis jugaklah...I must let it out from my harddisk. Rugi kalau tak share kan...after all..."life is like that" <---- borrow from you this phrase.

Sabah ialah negeri dibawah bayu..

10-km cycling sounds like fun. Exercise is not only good for health but could also help you to de-stress. In my case, i make a point to run on a treadmill and joining cycling/spinning classes in gym at least twice a week.

That "...tha making of an iron lady..." entry sounds interesting indeed. Dont keep us waiting :D

elara,

you go to gym? Good.. I used to go to gym, then join yoga class in Uk dulu. Now in KL, cycle only during weekend. Weekdays..only exercise hand and feet...aka driving in KL traffic...hehehe... So cycling 10 km is kind of total de-stress activity for me..

Nj,

hehehe...actually...The return of Iron Lady

elara said...

Yes I do. I need my workout every week. The term Iron Lady reminds me of Margaret Thatcher; It describes a "strong-willed" woman; A tough nut,elegant speaker and yet never had a firery temper contrary to what most people misconstrue.
