An old friend of mine, Albert, went on a quick trip to Japan in the past few weeks, a short interlude to his business life. (He is certainly on his way to being a CEO, one of the smartest and most socially adept guys I’ve known.)

He uploaded photos from the trip onto facebook, and tagged me in this photo:

smile! nara night lights

It was a picture from the Nara night lights when he was there. He said it was because I was always smiling every time he saw me.

The photo made me smile.


Sunlight through the windows August 13, 2009

I woke up today, surprisingly early at 8.45. The sake I had drunk last night made me sleep like a log and I wasn’t tired at all.

I walked into the living room, and the sunlight shone through the windows making the day seem so warm.

I looked outside and up at the sky, it was so clear and so blue.

Back inside I went to grab brekkie and saw a picture my brother drew.

It was a person, under a rainbow. Drawn with a rainbow pencil.

Life was so simple when we were kids.

I smiled.

The day was beautiful, and my world was all good.

Things I want to do. August 12, 2009

I think I need to write more and read more. I want to rewrite stories I made back in year 12 english. I want to read more and visit more worlds. They are things I should do but that I keep putting off. Because I say there’s no time. Perhaps I should start making time for things.

Let’s drink sake August 12, 2009

I realize I have no close friends, and I think of this as I open my last can of sake I’d saved up from Japan.

I feel a bit down, so I think I should drink sake. Sake makes things better, sake brings me back to Japan.

I savored the drink for a minute, and let the cool liquid flow down my throat and warm me up. It was nice at the start, but now, halfway through the 180ml can,  it’s getting all bitter. I didn’t expect to drink so much as I have already. I guess I might as well drink the rest. I’m feeling the effects already though: I feel a little wobbly, and my eyes feel funny – but then again, maybe that’s because of my lack of sleep. If it is the alcohol though, then I’m pretty weak – it’s only 15% alcohol after all.

I continue to drink, 3/4 of the way down. (more…)
