The world slows down as the millions of lights across the city glow and twinkle in the night. Suddenly Punt Rd isn't gridlocked anymore and the occassional dopler effect of a car speeding by would appear surprisingly fast. Sometimes if you hold your breath long enough, you sense the kind of agitation to realise what it's like to be enclosed in a confined environment. Some rare nights I would wake up in the wee hours of the morning and find it hard to go back to sleep. Staring at shadows cast by the moonlight, I feel enlightened somehow for breaking away from the monotonous daily ritual. It's the treadmill effect I think, when days are made for eat, sleep and work...When thoughts of conflict run their course through the mind, you earn for human contact. Of course, I stop myself from reaching the phone and waking them from their blissful slumber. Then I realise how much I enjoy sitting here on my own, just daydreaming, or flipping through trashy brainless magazines.
When sleep is deprived, the days melt into each other like a surreal dream. Everything you do during the day becomes trance-like; the noctural body finding it strange to adjust to the glare of sunlight. Ahh, the intoxication of the sleepdeprived, so very much like being drunk. I find myself behaving very outgoing during those wee hours, no inhibition whatsoever. That attitude of 'I don't give a f*^$' is quite liberating actually, I suppose that's the time of the day when you connect to people the most.
Ok, gonna escape this computer screen and immerse myself under the steady warm steam of shower water.

"NOW" is a gift, that's why they call it "THE PRESENT"
Travel life has the essence of a dream.
It is something outside the normal,
yet you are in it.
It is peopled with characters you have never seen before
and in all probability will never see again.
It brings occasional homesickness, and loneliness,
and pangs of longings...
But you are like the vikings who have gone into a world of adventure,
and home is not home until you return.
But home is where the heart is.
So where is home?
Dance like no one is watching
Love like you've never been hurt
Sing like no one's listening
Live like it's heaven on earth
Chocolate flows in deep dark, sweet waves, a river to ignite the mind and alert the senses...
Unexpected events in our daily lives are like different flavors that lie waiting beneath each chocolate cover.
Just like Forrest Gump explained:
"Life is like a box of chocolate, coz you never know what you're gonna get"
