Anybody miss me? I'm back from Copenhagen.

Yesterday, I gobbled 5 pineapple tarts and 5 deep-fried beehive biscuits the moment I stepped into the house. WTF?!? I hate this shit, it's freaking damaging. There are still containers of leftover chinese new year goodies, all screaming at me to eat them. TMD!!!

Everything is good, very good in fact... because things are going my way when I least expect them to:) I'm so relieved, it's hard not to be in a jubilant mood!

I can only be thankful that I held out until I got exactly what I wanted, despite having to quell all my anxiety and fretting over that small issue for nearly a month. I was ready to give up but kept doggedly trying my luck without the initial enthusiasm. The unexpected reward came at the perfect time and it will serve its purpose for now.

Of course that is just the tip of the iceberg. Just one more small obstacle out of the way.

Spent a large part of my stay in Denmark, reading. I finally got the chance to read the book my friend gave me. I love it... it's almost like my personal bible with philosophical and religious connections. Very, very apt I must say.

I would like to share some of my favourite quotes in some of my future blog entries... Here's one for now:
"The warrior of light sometimes behaves like water, flowing around the obstacles he encounters."

Occasionally, resisting might mean being destroyed, and so he adapts to the circumstances. He accepts without complaint that the stones along the path hinder his way across the mountains.

Therein lies the strength of water: It cannot be shattered by a hammer or wounded by a knife. The strongest sword in the world cannot scar its surface.

The waters of a river adapt itself to whatever route proves possible, but the river never forgets its one objective: the sea. So fragile at its source, it gradually gathers the strength of other rivers it encounters.

After a certain point, its power is absolute.
