J For Journey-ABC Wednesday


The journey is lonely,
The journey is bored,
The journey is long,
The journey full of fun,
If you are around.

One single impression: Joie de vivre

One single impression this week's prompt“Joie de vivre” suggested by Leo, “Joie de vivre” (from the French joie, "joy"; de, "of"; vivre, "living"; "the joy of living").

Visit the poem by Leo and other wonderful poems and haiku at One Single Impression, click the link from my side bar, I like this meme, reading the posts is one of my weekend’s joys.

So enjoy the joy of living now, this is one of my photograph captured in an early morning a few days ago.

One single impression: Joie de vivre

Morning dew, sunshine,
Grasshopper dancing in the wind
Appreciate the beauty of nature
Peace in mind, Joie de vivre

One single impression: the passing

The flowers are dying
The man said
With tears in his eyes
Wilted flowers reminded him
The passing of the beloved wife
She was dead when the newborn baby cried

More new blooms start
The daughter said
Wilted flowers reminded her
The passing of the dearest mom
In peaceful heaven she is now
Thanks god we are alive and know to treasure the life

if you see the dead end

why don’t you treasure the life

Hungry Ghost Festival

What is Hungry Ghost Festival ? Just like Halloween, but the ‘Hungry Ghost festival’ is for the Chinese. The festival that falls on the 7th month of the lunar New Year so called 7th Month Hungry Ghost Festival too.

In Chinese tradition, it is believed that during this month, the gates of hell are opened to free the hungry ghosts who then wander to seek food on Earth. A lot of people will celebrate this festival to remember their dead family members and pay tribute to them. So they bring a lot of food to display at the road side, but I never seen any ghost finished all the food, but there are a lot of birds having party with the food left over at the road side. Of course there are many “hell money” and other rubbish seen everywhere too, because the ghost is not afraid of those fine issued by Singapore government.

I am blogging this not because to complain the ashes posed a problem to our environment or the burning of “Hell Money” creates potential of danger…In fact there are some fun activities come along with this Ghost Festival, I was thinking want to take some photos of those fun activities during the month, but I was too busy to do so.

Personally, I don’t believe in any form of paying respect to those dead family members, do they really can come out from so called hell to eat the food, drink the water? Lol. Why can’t we treat those who are alive well and no need to wait until they left from this world. Be good to our parents, spend more time with them, listen to their nagging, pay attention to their loneliness, try our best to make them happy when they alive, treasure the time with the family, treasure the people around us, isn’t it more important than offering food, burning incense when they are dead?

Well, some post about the Ghost Festival  here and here…Just to share the Singapore Chinese culture with my blog friends from Tuesday My World. I hope I never offend anyone.

An ordinary tree

An ordinary tree
Moved to a new place alone
The tree had to let go
All the leaves of majestic green
And those beautiful blooms
To attempt to grow over changing seasons
Start from a dot of green slowly grow
In a country far away from hometown
With love, hope and care
The tree soon will full of thick green foliage
This is the life of
An ordinary tree
Traveled across the world

One Single Impression: choices

If I have choices
I won’t like to sit here counting the petals
If I have choices
I would rather run away from your life
But I know you are always in my mind
No matter how far I go
No matter how many choices I have

Random thoughts about kite

Midweek Blues, blue sky, blue kite, maybe blue mood too…I found some random thoughts about kite, written on a piece of blue paper…

A park, a friend
An evening walk
Blue sky
A happy kite
Fly so high


Wind blowing,
String goes slack
Ego is destroyed
Fly aimless 
The lonely kite


Never wished
I was a kite up in the sky
No matter how far can fly 
You hold the string of mine
The poor kite
