I'm a simple girl with a li'l dream, of seeing her humble works in exquisite print, to share with all who feels for words, written with
an unsupressable urge. So indugle in my fantasies, and plow your way through my memories, greatly appreciated you will be,
if you can leave your comments here for me.

Thank You For The Music

Music is a great healer. Not only is it hailed as a universal language (next to sex), it is an amazing antidote to many life's challenges.

When I wanna express how much my girl friends mean to me, Michael W Smith serenaded me with an apt rendition of Friends.

The day my ex walked away from my life, I cried to the beautiful sounds of Expose - I'll Never Get Over You Getting Over Me.

When the going gets rough, I was comforted by Hacken Lee's upbeat Canto pop Red Sun.

My pent-up angst and frustration was released as I screamed through Linkin' Park's In The End.

I Will Survive brought me out of days filled with frustration and agony.

And no matter what happens, Over The Rainbow will always calm my edgy soul.

There is always a song for any chapter in my life. The good times and the bad ones. Music has been an integral part of who I am - because it speaks volumes of feelings that I cannot otherwise express, and tales which I can never tell anyone.

Music describes my emotions, my moods, my sufferings, my joys and whatever I was going through at a point in time. I feel moved, understood, loved and comforted - and a mixed bag of other feelings all at the same time, and words cannot describe how music has healed me over the years when I was struggling, grappling and gasping - for a less painful life.

All I can say is - Thank you for the music.

I dun have many CDs. I dun even touch the knob but I live my life with music.

Every moment I hear music filling the air around me as though there are the angelic deejays, complementing my mood and atmosphere.

When I stream down the highway in the night, music flows freely into both my left & right satelite dishes in harmony.

When I get called into the boardroom, the symphony starts and orchestrate itself to the rythm of my pounding heart - when is Jason appearing with his axe?

When there is absolute silence, it is music by itself - the Sound of Silence.

Sitting by the orange glow beside my bed, tugged by the warmth of 4 furry babies - I write the 1st comment on the 1st blog I have ever read from a lady who captivates my attention. Is there music?

Sure - the strings of the violins vibrates, molecules in the air excites to the clear crisp vocals of Hacken.. Fei Fa, Flying Flower.. Wish I can sing for you now... right here... where are you?
