Past... Forward

Recently my friend and I have been pondering about what's happened in the past, wanting to re-live the moments. And yet, partly wanting to fast forward to five years from now - anticipating what the future chapter beholds. A lot of times we are reliving the past and yet living in the future as well, when really we should be living in the "now" and just cherish the current moment!

Yesterday's fate has already been, and we get that comfort knowing we know what has already happened. And yet, we continue to try and anticipate everything that will happen tomorrow. There is a fine line's difference in planning for the future and being obssessed with controlling things that we can't possibly hold. Sometimes I find myself caught in between these..

Here is a photo I took many years ago, back when things were quite simple (but at that moment seemed like a complex dilemma). Was I so wrong in thinking they were endless tangled strings! Surely, life has a way of deciding for us sometimes - for the best, hopefully.

Missing SG and family time


Lately all I have been thinking about is my trip to Singapore in a few months time. I don’t really have a say in the hotel I am staying at (as I am travelling for work) but I can’t help but browse through TravelSphere just to read about the destination, promotions which are currently being offered among the many other information available on the site. After all, you can’t really take out the travel agent in me.
 
It has been more than 5 years since I visited the lion city and surely there are a lot of new things, attractions to see (Universal Studios and the Marina Bay Sands). Hopefully I get to take a few days off after my training that way I could have a look see what the fuss is about! At this stage I am even imagining hubby and the little girl accompanying me – if possible! And dreaming on further, having my parents, sisters and nephews meet up with us there!
 
I really wish I can have more days off to spend with my family in SG. The last proper overseas vacation we've had was back in 2010! Seriously, I need a break. And I won't even start enumerating the reasons why I (or rather, we) need one. On the flip side, if we don't get to take time off this October, there is January to look forward to!!
