End of 2012 (almost).

Some beginnings. Some endings. Some meanderings.

One of those years that has been middling I think (is there such a word?). Not too many highs but not that crazy lows either. Just a steady floating on the jetsam and floatsam.

I am grateful for all the goodness in my life and the promise of a shiny new year but God please, I want 2013 to be a remarkable year. One of those years where I scale new heights, brim with joy and dominate the universe.

Om. Om. Om.

Someday, I feel that I will be able to conquer the world.

I really do.

I have so many amazing ideas. So many brilliant, world changing thoughts.

All that I have to do is spread them to the world.

And make it a better place (how much cornier can I sound, but it's true).


Wispy Boo

Can I tell you something?
You are very cute.
I am not cute.
Then, what are you.
I am Wispy.

Wispy-boo. 2.7 years of sunshiny goodness.

August 2012

Looking forward to the Merdeka weekend. Could do with the break.

1. So Wispy swallowed a coin. Waited for him to poop for a few days, then ran to Dr A for X ray -only for nothing to show up. Wispy is proving  to be my 3 am baby. The one that keeps me awake at 3 am and run to the doctor the next day.
2. Was interviewed as an expert for this research project. I personally think that some of my views about work are ground breaking lol.
3. Was in Delhi over the Raya break, 21-24 August, for a work research. I am turning into an entrepreneur.
4. Next week, I will work in new space in Bangsar. Fingers crossed.

The negligence and weariness with life

I feel run down due to the negligence and weariness with life. 

A line from an incredible short story sent by my friend Penawan. It had a kind of staccato energy and atmospheric transcendence that binds together splendidly.

Some inspiration

I've always been a follow your heart and live kind of person, especially when it comes to the work I choose to do, my life purpose and how I define myself. 

I've always felt very spiritual about it. That God must have plonked me at a place for a reason. For me to learn, and be of use. When I first walked along the criminal courts, I said a prayer everyday to guide me and to do the right thing. 

Today I came across the founder of Aravind Eyecare and have been moved so much by what he has to say:

Dr. V begins and ends every day at the hospital with a visit to the meditation room for "a silent talk with God". In discussing his work as a spiritual practice, Dr. V has said, "When I go to meditation room at the hospital every morning, I ask God that I be a better tool, a receptacle for the divine force. We can all serve humanity in our normal professional lives by being more generous and less selfish in what we do. You don't have to be a 'religious' person to serve God. You serve God by serving humanity."

Sprong learns drama

I have been trying to teach Sprong the concept of drama. When I get him to tell me a story, it will be more like Once upon a time, there was a boy and he went to the beach. THE END.

Where's the story Sprong? I say. Where's the drama? Especially now that you are going for Speech&Drama in school, Teacher Priscilla has thought you all about running away from scary animal et al. Drama Sprong, Drama!!!

Then, on the way to school this morning, he told me a story. Usually we do Math but today he wanted to tell me a story. And this was his story:

Once upon a time, there lived a lion. A dragon came along and gave out a big, big fire from his mouth. The lion was burnt. It was hot everywhere. The end.

And there you go, little Sprong has learnt drama. And made his momma cackle all the way to school this morning.

Hope yet

There is hope yet. I was pretty depressed when Wispy turned two last week.

Like, there goes my last excuse for post partum fat.

I can no longer say I just had a baby. Baby is 2 year old toddler. Then, I found out that gorgeous Sonam Kapoor was once 90kgs. So there is hope yet.

I should be miserable this weekend.

I have a report given to me on Friday which is due Monday which means that I am working throughout the weekend.

But I must count my blessings.

Work for me on a Saturday morning is on the dining table of my home, a morning shower blessing the world and my children puttering in the living room, playing indoor baseball with their dad.

I sometimes don't count my blessings. Yes, I want bigger and I mean way bigger dreams for my business but at the moment, there's work trickling in, slowly, surely and I am still in control of my time with my lovelies.

Wispy Boo Does Sentences and Spong's Vocab

So around CNY holidays this year, that's 20-25 Feb, Wispy has seriously started speaking better. I can heave relief because I was quite worried about his lack of clarity.

One evening, as they climbed up the dining table to rummage on some of my noodles and I offered to feed him, Wispy said 'I do it myself'.

M and I stopped in our tracks. 'What did you?'

He gave us his wicked smile 'I do it myself' he said it again.

Ha ha. Since then, he wants to do everything himself, climb up the car seat, brush his teeth, comb his hair, climb down the stairs.

Wispy Boo, almost 2.


Sprong's ability to drive me up the wall increases but his intellectual abilities astound even the teachers.  A typical boy, his writing is atrocious but before his 4th birthday, Sprong has been able to spell

dinosaur (DINOSAUR!)
and any other animal

And of course, he can read his peter and jane and most of the sight words: here, there, now, is, are

At 3.4, he was doing bat, cat, hat, bus, car,

So, a new year is here. I feel fresh and free.

At least for a short while.

Had a great birthday yesterday.

I pray to the spirits of the universe for a good and benevolent here.
