my mom’s greatest birthday gift

February 25, 2009

It’s my brother’s birthday today, a day after my mom’s birthday. Ok its abit delayed but still, it must be a wonderful experience *i think* to poop a baby out around your birthday. Ok I was told he was a pain *he still is* coz he was such a BIG baby.

HE DID NOT LOOK LIKE ME AT ALL. He was fluffy snow white with brown hair and pink cheeks!

The brother was a total opposite.

In his growing years, he was a PEST. He burst with energy, talks non stop, loves attention and clings to my mum like a koala *u CANNOT yank him off*. At age 2+, he climbed on stage in a shopping mall and danced to Micheal Jackson’s Beat It before a crowd. When he sensed camera lenses on him, he tilts his overfilled diaper-wrapped bums and posed before the camera like a pro! ME? I stick to a corner and pretended i was invincible invisible.

We kick, pinch and punch each other and I HATE IT when he wants to play WWF! Of course, when we were small, I could fight back. As we stepped into our teens and he was rugby captain, it made perfect sense to stick to verbal arguments *duh*.

Despite our differences, my brother counts as one of my bestest friend. My mum asked if i wanted a brother or sister. I decided there and then that a brother would be fun. I was right. Through the years, he had provided me perspective, advice and contributed tonnes of laughter to the family.

Happy Birthday Baby Bro! You are one awesome brother!

*Brother, this must be my BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT to you ever!*


new kid on the blog

February 24, 2009

Starting this blog was a nervewrecking experience, from deciding a name for the blog to deciding its look *still thinking*, this is truly much worse than the work i do and more difficult than i thought. But after fiddling with the laptop for hours. I decided. What the heck! I should just relax and BE C O O L.

For an INTJ *if i remember correctly* who has never written a single diary, this is a giant leap of faith. I always find it a hassle to write. The push came when i chanced upon blogs that had been inspiring, positive and informative. They offered me new perspectives with their love for life and passion in what they do. Coincidentally, I am at a phase when i want to express myself and perhaps, to make sense *or not* of it all. This would be a perfect avenue.

So here i am. My TRAINRIDE.
