When you are the first person she says Good morning to
When you are the last person she wish you Good night
When suddenly you get a “I miss you”
Love is also the little “Thinking of you” note
Love is the little bits and pieces
In our every day
When you are there
Interested... but rarely follow through. :-/

I have to be honest here - and this is not something I'm happy to write about.
In the world of attempting to date in NYC, there seems a terrible pattern I continually come across with local guys:
They, or I, show an interest in each other. Generally, when the interest seems genuinely mutual, we text back and forth for a while, but I honetly find texting to be impersonal and needlessly time consuming once we've covered some of the basics.
So, I make the boldly personal move of sending the interested person my phone number - with the ideal scenario of talking sooner than later in order to gauge humor, manners, interests and curiosities.
85% of the time, they don't text me. And - will often ghost me, here.
Meanwhile, guys that live THOUSANDS of miles away, have no problem calling and/or video chatting with me - ASAP. The odds of meeting are slim to none, and yet, they are willing to risk being seen and TALKING in real-time, often despite rather broken English.
I grew up in NYC - the most international city in the universe. I'm a music producer - who knows musicans all over the world. I went to hundreds of parties over decades during NYC's golden club days (80's-2000's), AND I work in a store with a hugely international clientel. i have friends ALL OVER THE WORLD. And I manage to communicate with them well enough even with the most basic of English.
So - what is it that makes local men "afraid" to talk to me? If I agree to meet them out, we STILL have to talk in realtime - so I'd rather get that established before investing more time (and potentially money) before meeting. Doesn't that just make sense?
Let me know your thoughts.

I managed to walk the Hadrian's Wall, from Carlisle to Wallsend, Newcastle. It took 5 days, from the 25th to the 29th of April. On the 2nd ann 3rd days, the east wind made going up and down the grags really rough. Overall it was a great trip ... will do it again.
doesn't it irks you that someone who has wronged you could still say "why are you like that?"
somehow being enraged or upset about it justifies their infidelity or ill intent actions.
so, my friends.
when someone do you wrong, take a deep breathe.
walk away, and most importantly never look back.
"they seem remorsed, surely it's okay to give them a second chance"
why give them another chance to hurt you when they never appreciated the only chance to love you?
Don't self hurt for undeserving love, it only reminds you of a past you never thought would happen to you.

the Why barrier
Have you ever met someone so morally wrong yet they don't feel they are?
So who is to say what's right and what's wrong really?
Truth be told, we all grow up in households or schools, being taught what not's and how not's.
The "why not's" were never extensively given through out ones growing process.
Oh, but it did for you? and you still feel like shit, well kudos to ya.
Disclaimer: This ain't a targated hate post. It's in the name of being Human.
cheaters never lose.
if you love someone, would you still love another?
To the public society, the answer is no.
Even when the cheat has been discovered, the cheat continued on.
Does your indecisiveness grants you the liberty to justify your cheat?
Blame? "Surely something wasn't working out, that's why the cheat happened."
as always, the innocent one,
gets hurt the most.

阑珊的街灯下，手中紧握着手机贴着脸庞仓促走着，已经感到手机微微的温热。 它是妳我之间，我唯一能触碰的实体。正谈着什么有趣事儿时，妳笑了。笑声是清脆的、纯真的。瞬间，妳的笑声在我脑海，幻化成缤纷斑斓的彩色玻璃珠子，弹跳落下......我不禁脱口说:"你的笑声，很好听。" 电话另一旁的妳，对这突如的一句话，怔怔地沉默了一下。我听出了妳沉默中，不知如何回应的羞涩......
So, it has been...

almost a good 4 years since my last blog! I guess I haven’t been very active on Fridae these few years! I don’t know, a few distractions come to mind, like a change in residence, family issues, a global pandemic and now a potential for WWIII…
Aș I currently recover during a mandatory 10 day isolation period, due to a positive Covid-19 test, I thought it finally time for a new blog! We got some catching up to do! Lucky you! Hahaha
Yes, I have been vaccinated and bostered and still have Covid, but as with all vaccines, the goal is not necessarily to prevent, but to minimize symptoms and severity. For that I am grateful and thankful it’s Omicron rather than Delta!
Back in 2018, we moved from Vancouver to New Westminster. It took a year of renting while we looked, but finally we found the place we wanted and could afford! Because of the Pandemic past few years, we haven’t been able to have parties and friends over, but hopefully this summer we’ll be able to host our annual New West Pre-Pride Patio Party again. So Friends, you heard it here first!!
Something that we all don’t do anymore and I just thought about was the nightly banging of pots and pans at 7 pm, to show our support of all the healthcare workers and essential frontline workers who continued to work and provide services to the rest of us at the beginning of and throughout the pandemic. I loved the community spirit that abound as we all stepped out onto the streets in front of our houses, or onto the balconies of our apartments to make noise for 2 minutes in appreciation of those who were looking after us. It was a way for us to connect and remind each other that things are tough but we will All eventually get through it!
Remember in the beginning 2 years ago, how afraid we all were? The World literally shut down! People stopped going to work, there were curfews, businesses boarded up. It was like a scene in a Hollywood futuristic post-apocalyptic movie! I even didn’t go to work for the first few months, and my partner Steve worked from home like so many others who were able to do so. That whenever we dared venture out to go food shopping etc, that when we came home we’d have to remove all our clothes and wash them right away and shower right away as well. We’d wipe down anything new we brought into the house, hand sanitizing and disinfecting. We were so paranoid in the beginning, because we just didn’t know what was causing the illness and how it was all transmitted. And somehow the most important supply in the midst of all our panic, was a lack of TOILET PAPER!! We can all look back on that now and kind of collectively shake our heads in disbelief, but yeah, that happened!! Thankfully after two years, it appears as if we are finally coming to a point where things are settling back to how it could be again. No more vaccine mandates, mask wearing, restrictions to daily life, etc. All this of course, if no new variant comes along that is worse than what we’ve had. Let us All hope so anyway!
Early last year, my Dad and Mom were out for a walk and my Dad happened to trip on some uneven pavement and fell. He ended up having to stay in hospital for a week and a half, but luckily didn’t break any bones or have any major injury. Then 4 months later he fell again, but this time at home. This one was worse because he hit his head and ended up having a brain bleed. There was a while when we worried if he wasn’t going to survive it, because at his age of 88, the doctors did not foresee a positive outcome for him if he was to have surgery. So we waited for his body to hopefully heal itself and fortunately it did, and the bleeding stopped on its own, but he ended up having to stay in hospital for 5 weeks this time. After he was released home this time, in less than 24 hours he fell again and had to go right back to hospital. My Dad was in hospital finally for another few weeks and then released home again, but only temporarily as the time has come for him to have extended care. We were fortunate to only have to wait a few more weeks until there was space for him at a carehome, at which he currently still resides. My Mom goes to visit him every day since he moved there, except for the brief couple of months when there was an outbreak of Covid and visitation was suspended. We just got word today, that there will no longer be restricted visitation starting this Friday, so I’ll be able to go visit him again as well, once I’m recovered from Covid.
It’s been a challenging few years for Everybody. Even moreso for the people of Ukraine having to go through an immoral invasion of their country. It’s a complicated issue for the rest of the World to deal with Vladimir Putin, the current madman of our times. NATO cannot directly get involved militarily, as they fear a possible Russian nuclear retaliation. I really don’t know how this conflict can be resolved satisfactorily for all involved. My guess is there has to be a coup d’etat militarily or by Putin’s inner circle to come to their senses and realize that they have to live in peace with the rest of the World, so they end up taking him out. How the rest of the World can just idly sit by and allow this to happen? Its all very shocking!! Thoughts and prayers ain’t gonna do shit…Slava Ukraini!!!

I was in this car rental company (S. C. L Pte Ltd) in April 2020. So, at the end of the year 2020, the company gave out an iPhone “Bonus Gift” to each of the employees.
As of now, I am residing at my godma's house at (AMK address).
On 12 February 2022, 2 guys came up to my godparent’s place at about 11:32pm and threatened me that they would keep coming up every half an hour just to get the Iphone back. This has caused inconvenience to the owners living in the flat. These Debt Collectors do not have any warrant, company or ACRA. (Police report no: F/20220215/2001)
On 13 February 2022, my father received a call from 9XXXX752 and the caller told my dad that he is my friend. The call was recorded on my father's phone and he sent it to me. (Police report no: F/20220215/2001)
As usual on 17 Feb 2022 at 2138hrs, the same 2 male subjects went to my unit again. One male subject who dressed in white top & black shorts who came previously on 15 Feb 2022 and the other subject who dressed in black top & dark blue jeans who came previously filmed my unit on 11 Feb 2022 , and both wore a black cap and spectacle. The white top subject did all the talking, shouting and threatening us. He mentioned that he has made a police report against me and he also mentioned very clearly that IO has instructed him to pass the 'Company' letter to me. V the victim videoed the whole incident and I called the police immediately when they showed up at my unit. He threatened to call the police when I did not show up at the doorstep. I waited for a while to make sure the police were going to arrive at my unit before I went to the doorstep. He was shouting despite the fact that he saw my god dad sleeping in the living room.
Meanwhile, I've tried to contact IO C.K but to no avail. I sent him a text message informing him that the same guys appeared at my unit and harassed me and my family. The next day 18 Feb 2022, IO Cher mentioned that he had called F.K and spoke to him for 30 mins and verbally warned him not to continue to harass me. F.K did not comply with what IO instructed him to do. At night he sent 2 men to my unit and was even more aggressive.
I am feeling extremely frightened and uncomfortable as I have made numerous police reports and there is no way to stop them from harassing me. Everyday I am hoping all this will be a complete stop.
Yes it’s good to get any resources like neighbor places with camera install by under the law you can’t install camera unless with a permit because of harassment and for harassment wise i mean if there’s grievance hurt involve not just inconvenience because inconvenience by law you can only report to the police and max you get restricting order against the other part.

6年前我们曾说过要成为彼此的最后，你却狠心的把四个月刚萌芽的爱情杀死。只错在我没事业没钱吧?我去考个文凭，不就是为了更美好的将来和事业吗?既然要走，又何必再来找我?我做到了让妳成为我的最后，妳却对我说妳结婚了。 要我说什么呢? 妳说要继续当朋友，消失了4年，真的有这个必要吗? 请别打扰我已平静的生活，平复的心。
Caccini, Vavilov - Ave Maria

I love all renditions of Ave Maria, by various composers. So much so, when I mentioned to a monk, he asked if I am a Catholic. I told him, no, I am a Buddhist.
A House is not a Home

I honestly have no idea how I survived 2021. I was mainly alone, work was crushing, my home renovations were largely smooth but far from stress free; I had to fund raise for the cause and in my love life had to question every fibre of my moral self by being with someone I shouldn’t be with. I was on the brink. If not for my therapist, doctor, a good friend and my little dog, I don’t know how I would have made it. I was so broken and every day it was holding myself up to world and getting on with things I needed to complete. I was a machine. THE Machine was back. The side of me that keeps going and know that it’s pointless dwelling. I do appreciate that side of me. The Machine has accomplished much to get me here in life. I have no complaints. I have a lot more than most ever will. But during The Witching Hours of 11.30pm to 2am, I tend to ruminate and the emotionally spent and injured, stressed up, broken me surfaces for help. There’s no way to repress that version of me and I’ve since learned that it’s not healthy to. That’s how people start developing multiple personality disorders. I’ve learned to embrace the vulnerable me. I console my injured self telling her that everything will be ok. We’ve been through worst and that the pain in her chest will stop. We will heal and though we have to go through this alone, we do have family and true friends who love us and waiting for us to return home.
The heartache eventually eases when the pillows are soaked in my tears and my body gives into the exhaustion for the day. This went on for months. Day by day, the excruciating pain felt a little less and I start to heal.
When life overwhelms, I need to remember who I am. I am still the same person who cries in the rain, but will power on. That I have a mission and purposes in my life; that I don’t quit. Every battle I will take hits, but fighting isn’t about discomforts. I’ve been taught well and I have Angels. I always get back up stronger and wiser. I made mistakes and I always learn. And I’ve re-learned the important lesson that I can’t make a home with someone who isn’t here and isn’t available. That she’s still out there leading her best life and I will be too when it’s time for us be together.
