Responsibility

Hello there! (read it Obi Wan's style)

Pretty sure on this fine Sunday everyone is having a good time chilling, hanging out, or just lazing around at home.  It's weekend alright. But I know there are people that have to work on Sunday, because they are from Terengganu, Kedah and Kelantan that's why. =P

The past few weeks have been a such insightful, making me all aware at the same time grateful that I finally take my words into action. In fact, since the day I started my life in Balakong Jaya here, I have learned a lot of things. Most important lesson of all, I am the only one who can decide what to do in my life and live it. Always, I find myself reciting the first few lines of "The Road Not Taken"


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
 Robert Frost

Yours truly here have gained weight that my boss at work even noticed the transformation I went through. Now I am getting back to my old weight. Difficult but still doable. I need  to feel good about myself like the old days in Gippsland (even though my housemate has the same thought like my mother - they think I looked like a drug addict last time)
This picture of me in 2008 has received many negative feedback - DRUG ADDICT! But I weighed 72kg only that time!!

Recent pic of me (with the gf) in JB. Damn...look at my cheeks.... =___=


By the way, I managed to download all photos of me from Facebook, using this software - Photo Grabber. But I still am a little bit concerned if it can somehow compromise my privacy on Facebook. I have yet to find any bad reviews about the software but, you never know man...


Well, have a great day today folks! Make good use of it! ;)

Hi Danial, wow! I love that poem by Robert Frost. I am very impressed.
And love the pic of you and girlfriend. She's beautiful.

Danial, go buy her 1 red rose, present to her, tell her, "if you hold this in front of your mirror, you will see 2".
Ha ha, have fun.
Have a nice day.
Lee.

Hahaha, thanks Uncle Lee for the comment. Yea, this poem has been my favourite ever since I learned about it in secondary school. And she is beautiful, right? And everytime I tell her that, she would just brush it off saying "you're blind"
Lol
