Things I am Grateful for Today

  • Went to East Family Gathering at Paris with LG today. What a day!
  • Thank God for family and friends. The world is a chaotic place but I am glad there’s a family, LG and friends to fall back on.
  • Chatting with Vivian is amusing and fun. She is such an interesting girl to interact with. I admire her teaching-skills too. She taught my LG how to play a card game with ease. Would definitely talk to her again soon.


(Today’s journal is just a gentle reminder to myself therefore I am going to be harsh)

Talking with people and getting to know them is such an interesting process. You can tell a lot about a person by the way he or she replies you. Today, I talk to a very attractive sister whom I’ve had eye-candy for the past 6 months or so but the conversation is very mundane. To put it simply, it was kind of a turn-off. I can’t imagine dating a pretty girl who has low self-esteem and/or shows no interest in life. That’d probably suck a lot in the long term!

In the past, I thought looks were everything. Today, I know better. Looks aren’t everything. If a physically attractive person is a boring person. He/she is a boring person, period. So what if a person is a perfect 10/10 in looks but suck in character? Unless he/she proves to be worthy of your attention, it is probably best to stay away first. I am not talking about friendships. I am talking about dating and/or finding the right partner in life. I can be friends with everyone but not everyone is meant to date and be with me for the rest of her life.

2 weeks ago, I wrote about something that is somewhere along this line. It is either a “Fuck yes or hell no.” Don’t date a girl who is kinda like in the middle or worst, the Hell-no kind. Only date those with wants to be with you, SZH! Don’t you dare ever freaking settle for less. You know you deserve the best. Go out with those who wants to spend time with you too!

A perfect example would be Vivian. Going out with Vivian will surely be fun and filled with full of interesting and meaningful conversations. I know I’ll definitely know her at a much intimate level just after a date or 2. This is the kind of relationship I am looking for. Even if we don’t belong together, we could still end up as very good friends. Friends that would continue to talk about life and deep talk every now and then. This beats dating a boring person who doesn’t show interests in life on any given day.

Most people are boring, mundane and willing to settle. Let not the person be you, SZH. If I can’t find any suitable partner today, don’t lose hope. Continue to trust in God’s time. He has a perfect plan for each and every one of us.

Thank God that I get to meet many of my brothers and sisters from the East zone. Thank God for allowing us to live in a peaceful country where we can all gather as one under the safety of Your harbour. I pray that we will continue to love one another despite our differences. I pray that I’ll find my significant other. I don’t know who she is and what she is like but I’ll continue to actively seek her. I pray that Lord you’ll close doors that were meant to be closed and only open those that are pleasing to You. I pray for a good night sleep too since I didn’t sleep well last night! Thank you, Lord for everything you have given me. I pray that I will draw closer to you each and every day. I pray all this in your most precious name, Amen!
