Jet Plane

This is the end
A reason why goodbyes were even invented
It's not as hard as I thought
As I'm much stronger this time...

Honesty and expectation is the root of all evil
So you can't try to hurt me anymore...

Tomorrow,
A day when I'll be a better me
Renewed of my vows and promises
And when dawn breaks lose
You will be forgotten...

Amidst the thoughts and memories
11.10.12 will not be forgetten
Even the stars shine much brighter today
I'm sorry I never got the chance to know you,
For I am only a dreamer...

Sky is the Limit

Rim John said "Without a sense of urgency desire loses its value"
So I threw my heart over the fence in anticipation
Time waited for no one, not even me this time
All I had was moments to live by...

Imagine in a battleground you take cover
You hope your shield will protect and not expose
But knowingly you take the risk
And enter into this territory...

When do you know that you've gone too far?
Do you enjoy the little moments until then?
The summery heat adds up to the fiesta
So do you wait for a while or give in?

Taking the lust and hiding it behind green lushes
Strong feelings given the moment
lasted only for a while
But this time was very different...

The scorching sun and the time of the day
might have added to the quick decision
Then she waited upon this dreaded moment
Where the dead emotions moved...

We live in a beautiful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

As time goes on you'll understand that what lasts, lasts and what doesn't, doesn't. Time solves most things and what time cannot solve, you have to solve yourself...

Humility~


Often we judge people without even knowing them and most of the time one's perception of the person is completely different after we get to know them. 

So from now on, I've decided that I will not judge people before I get to know them as I could truly be wrong about them...

Eternal Flame

The wandering mist over the glistering lake
smothered my vision and my rational thought
Curiosity came with the given hour of darkness
and I stood alone questioning these thoughts...

Sixty minutes on the clock was all I had
Time was too short a date
Instead I held on to memories for sleep
Into the undisturbed fathom of the silent night...

Like a shiver to my heart
This fate played a powerful tool
Hearts skipping like it's playing hopscotch
Unsettled but surely excited...

Plans, expectations and disappointments
An end to a summer's day
Cold winds and clouds dimmed its brightness
For this feeling possesses eternally
even when summer seems to fade...

Day 1 : 6 kgs to 55

Well I'm back to cutting and eating clean at the gym with 5 days weight training which includes cardio and ab workout. As of recently, I started craving clean, have chosen a healthier diet, and set a goal for myself so that by 2014 I'll be the fittest I've ever been in my life. I've started to envision a stronger, healthier and happier version of myself. I'm on a mission to prove that one can get fit without taking steroids, unnecessary medicines but rather just straight clean eating, exercise and having the right mind.

To begin with, I've always had a problem with my weight. I remember at one give point I was even 75kgs back in High School and I have pictures to prove this. Then as I started to finish high school and go to college I started exploring eating good food with the wide range of varieties that were available in the local super markets in Vancouver.

But my journey to fitness didn't start until until I enrolled myself to the Gym seriously earlier this year in February with a personal trainer. I've seen tremendous results of what the gym and a trainer can do once you set your mind to it. I was 68 kgs while starting or even a few kgs plus and the last few months I've dropped to 61 kgs and have been floating around that weight since then. I was eating food that left me bloated, guilty most of the time that I often ended up regretting what I ate. The more I explored food, the more I knew about their benefits and I started to eat less processed foods and giving my body what it had missed.

So, I have decided to finally get off that stationary weight and drop down 5 kgs by the time I get married in November 2013 which is almost 1 month and 24 days (55 days) left.

My routine starts with cutting off junk food, snacks, biscuits (which I love) and by focusing more on fresh fruits, green vegetables, chicken breasts, tuna, and healthy nuts (almond, cashew).

In the morning around 6:30am I take a one hour walk on empty stomach and at 7:30am I take my first dose of Protein Shake (Cookies and Creme by Muscle Pharm) and head to the kitchen to make my breakfast.

My breakfast usually comprises of either oats with 2 egg whites and 1 yolk with a glass of fresh juice. This I take 2 hours after my protein shake so around 9:30-10:00 am. After Breakfast I take my omega-3 and Multivitamin. If i'm not eating oats I usually eat 2 pieces of toasts or a small cup of rice.

Then between breakfast and lunch I have a healthy snack on the go which is either cucumbers or a fruit.

For Lunch, I make sure I eat 100gms of meat and vegetables either cooked in olive oil or is boiled.

Then at around 3pm I either eat a Banana or a cup of yoghurt.

At 4pm I head to the gym to work out on weights, abs and 1 hours of cardio. The workout is finished with my second dose of protein shake at 6pm along with Vit.C and Calcium.

Then around 8pm I eat another 100gms of meat and vegetable or salad or dinner.

By 10pm I am already tired and in need of some deserving sleep.

So, this routine I follow for the next few weeks with allowing myself a cheat meal every 2 weeks and drinking lots of water throughout the day.

In the beginning I found my eating habits to be very difficult with minimum choices and not much of a variety to begin with but I did some research and started exploring other people's recipes for creativity and ideas. Since then, cooking has been fun and I've learnt not to associate food with guilt. Bottom line: I've learnt that in order to achieve desired results one must work hard. That I've found to be the key to happiness and self acceptance through that

So here's the beginning to 6 kgs to 55...

Hectic Weekend

This weekend has been one hectic of a weekend in a long time. Had 2 weddings and a state funeral to attend on Saturday and another wedding on Sunday. Amongst all those had a busy family lunch at Dad's and later on went plant shopping for our glass house all the way from a Semtokha mountain top...

Here are some picture highlights:

Dream in a Dream★

They say it was a 'sad sad day'
True to those words uttered..

Nostalgia followed by solemn Melancholy
An ode unsung to the brave soldiers,
When did today become the Black Friday?

While the rest of the world was grieving
I waited to dream in a dream
And I did, like the previous night.

It took me to places I'd never been
And promised me endlessly...

A vague silhouette drew me closer
Blurry face with no name
But I seemed to know of him definitely.

The feelings I felt were surreal
And even though it seemed new
I knew I had made yet another memory
Which questioned my integrity.

25 is the number that leaves an impression
Like an art on a canvas my stories are told
It includes you this time
But I just haven't written out your part yet..

Young or old doesnt matter anymore
Past or the future, we're all careless
Life is all about the NOW!
And how we make of it...

How many more nights would I dream or even dare to dream??

Line of Duty

On 2nd September, 2013 there was slight accident in Anakha, Haa which took the lives of 11 ammunition technicians of the RBA of the bomb squad as they were trying to dispose the expired ammunition as some were from the 1960's. But then something went wrong, bombs blasted, kileed a few and a lot of soldiers injured during the incident while a few were serious and admitted to the hospital. 8 Soldiers died on the spot while 3 died at the hospital.

So this morning along with my Office staff we all went to Lungtenphu to pay our respects to the 11 soldiers who lost their lives on the line of duty.
Quite surprised to find that, there were 3 familiar faces in the families that I recognized and it was really sad in fact how young each soldiers were. One wife of a deceased soldier was in continuous mourning as we went from tent to tent paying respects while some of the children were clueless and playing around chair to chair.

We were seated in the tent, had a cup of tea and biscuits and left all together...

The funeral is to take place on Saturday 11th September at the Dhuethey in Hejo.

Police 48th Raising Day

Today I was initiated as a FOP (Friends of Police) member along with 121 other members who came from various backgrounds in terms of work and age. I can't say I'm the youngest but I was definitely one of the youngest in the group...The previous day we had an entire day of orientation getting briefed on the FOP program, awareness on domestic violence, drug abuse, crime prevention, fire safety, traffic situation, introduction to disaster, community patrolling and reporting in Bhutan. It was a long day that started at 9am and ended at about 5:30 pm in the evening. 
Learnt a lot surely but at the same time lectures from each division turned out to be very lengthy and there were lots of information packed away on multiple slides.

What was the highlight for me during this entire morning's program?

For me the highlight was watching the young juvenile inmates perform from the Youth Development Rehabilitation Center (YDRC) from Tshimasham. There was something about their performance that day.
Maybe it was the fact from where they came from but more importantly I think it was different because they were so talented. The boys were dressed up as Milerapa, hip hop dancers, girls, female actors in skits, tribal dancers, etc. 

This was far far different than watching any school concerts or performances because the kids not only performed whole-heartedly but they were enjoying every performance on the program. Some of this kids were addicts, murders, rapist, etc but when they came up on the stage there was something innocent about them. One would/could never imagine the crimes and the charges they are held up for. 

If only more people knew about the YRDC and how they are helping the convicted youth with rehabilitation. I was really touched the entire show and didn't even mind that it went up for 16 performances (more than one hour).
