Friends Come and Go

Friends have always been very important to me in life. Without some of my close friends now, my life will be super dull.

People thinks that I always hang out with different gang of friends, that I am always so packed with hangout dates but no. I don’t really have many close friends that I will always hangout with but that’s not the problem.

In fact, I don’t see the problem. I’m fine with just that few friends, because sometimes that’s all you need.

Some of us grew up with some friends; we call them the childhood friends. It good that if these friends is still in your life, because they are the one that witness your growth, your changes, your improvement in life and vice versa. 

I don’t have a friend like this, and then I realize fiends somehow come and go. Don’t be too over protective towards someone, or too dependent. This goes the same towards relationship. 

If that person is right it will stay, if not there is always a reason for them to leave. People or friends appear in your life for a reason and for a period, it may be short or it may be a lifetime. 

You can be so close with this person for this period of time, but eventually you realize one day both of you are drifting apart. You seem to have fewer topics to talk together, less similar interest and a totally different direction in life.

There is no right or wrong, the world is turning, the weather is changing, you are changing, they are changing, people just change.

You may be very good friend with someone during high school, but when you enter uni things seems different. Maybe because you meet new people, you learn things that are different, you don’t stress on the same subject like your best friend anymore and you start realizing you are not that close. 

You may have a best friend in uni, but then when both of you steps in the working world; you might have your own lifestyle, totally different jobs industry, they don’t understand what you are doing and why would you do that. You both have different perspective towards life and career. You just start to talk less with your best friend. 

I don’t blame when people starts stepping out, because it’s the matter of mutual understanding. Real friends won’t just say “bye”. They stick to you when you are down; they gives you support when you are unhappy and they share happiness with you too. For me, friends should gives sincere advice and think good for them. We should help each other out and support each other’s back. Don’t let them fall deeper when they are wrong, don’t be afraid to confront them. Motivate each other to be a better person, and achieve dreams together. 

I have friends that I don't meet that often, but whenever we meet there are still 101 things that we can share and talk about. That are friends. Even when we go out and chill at a cafe, we can just sit there and mind our own business and still don't get awkward. 

If misunderstanding occurs, spread it out like butter and solve the problem. Friends should always be honest and try to fix things, if you choose to just turn your back and leave then it’s not even worth it in the first place to start this friendship. 

Everyone appear for a reason, and if someone could just walk out your life just like that then it’s not even worth it to dwell over it. 

I’m not saying there is no long lasting friendship because there is! So if you still have a childhood friend, a good friend that motivates you and makes you a better person, appreciate them! These people won’t come twice in life. I appreciate each of my friends from every stage because at least we had good memories and they made me grow.

Life is a learning process, meeting new friends too. Don’t go hating on friends that left you, they just have different directions in life. Let them be. Just make sure don’t come back only when you need something. (not cool!)

Be a good friend at the same time too and make you and your best friends grow better with you and make bonds and memories that are worth looking back one day!

Love all of them and appreciate to have them in life! xoxo

Adore someone who inspire you in life

I know I have not been blogging for quite some time and I don’t usually write about my thoughts online that often, but I suddenly just realize how important it is to be inspire in life by someone and how that could change many things. 

I love to share my life on Instagram and Facebook, and I started all from blogging that I believe it is where some of you started to know about me. I am also very grateful to have the amount of followers that are following me on social media and how some of you actually do write in to me telling how I actually influence and inspire your life. 

I never will have thought that these little things that I write or post on social media could have that power to change someone or to motivate someone. I also do adore someone a lot in my life and if you know me well, you will know it’s my idol Jolin Tsai. 

She needs no introduction because she is such a superstar in the mandopop industry. She has been my idol for the past 10 years, it’s not a very long time but definitely it’s not short either. I started listening to her song when I was in primary school (that was more than 10 years ago hahaha) but not until I fell in love with her when she launched her 8th album “Dancing Diva” in 2006! 

I have no idea how can I adore someone that much, my friends will ask me why do I like her for so many years? Is it because she is pretty? Sexy? I will always answer “No”! I don’t think she has the best vocal in the industry, I don’t think she is the most talented singer, but the reason why I adore her so much is because she is the most hardworking artist. 

She is not that good in singing, not that good in dancing, not that pretty when she debuted back in 1998, even everyone and the media thinks that she is one of the worst artist in the industry. All these negative comments did not stop her but made her stronger where she actually put 300% more effort in learning something just to achieve what she have today.

So when I saw her Dancing Diva MV, I was so amazed how someone that has no dancing and gymnastic foundation performs so well putting both elements together. That is when she really attracted me and I literally went crazy for her. After so many years, I have no regret in adoring her because she actually truly inspired and motivates me whenever I feel like failing.

Her determination and hardwork created her success in her music career. She keeps on transcending herself from learning different dance genre and trying different music genre too in all her albums. She inspired me to never stop learning something new and always breakthrough what we are capable of. 

She taught me in doing what we like in life and never give up that easily. If you think you can, you can! This sounds really cheesy I know hahaha but somehow it’s true. Her persistence in pursuing in the music industry always motivates me to pursue what I like too. 

I have been supporting her for the past 10 years and just look at all the albums that I bought!

Just look at that face, no joke it was me 10 years ago. LOL

This was my very first autograph album from Jolin! It was also my first time meeting her in person back in 2007

I really went to all of her events and concert in Malaysia if I can make it, and last year my dream came true because I flew all the way to Taiwan to watch her first PLAY Tour concert! I have watched 4 times of her concert, 3 different tours and I can say it is definitely worth it! The stage, the outfit, the choreography, the rundown, her performance are all equally satisfying. Watch once in your lifetime and you will witness the effort and hardwork she puts in completing the concert.

Finally she is having her on the 16th July 2016 and I’m so happy after waiting for one year since the last concert I went in Taiwan last May. I know that she has been changing many outfits and different rundown for her concert and I just can’t wait to see what new things she will be offering during this Malaysia tour!

So as long as you adore someone in life and that someone could inspire and motivates you to be a better person, I don’t see the problem. Believe in yourself and never let anyone bring you down. If your idol or the person could do it and succeed in life, you can too! It is always good to be inspired and to inspire! 

My motto in life “Aspire to Inspire” 

I don’t just get inspired, I also hope what I’m doing now or in the future could inspire all of you that is reading this and also all of you that has been giving so much support all this while. The world is full of inspirations and hope; this is what makes me aim to be better everyday! You can too!
