Of thoughts & wonders

Wednesday was both a happy and sad day for me.

The happy feeling was 0that my new car came.
It was rather unexpected as it was originally planned to be yesterday, so needless to say I was really happy. The sales person went to Seremban to help me register my plate. All was done within the hour, so the car was planned for delivery at around 5pm . Swell.

For the rest of the day, I could not really focus on work cause I was very busy anticipating the arrival of my new gadget.

At about 5pm, the sales person called. My car was downstairs. She was sweet enough to drive it to me. I went down .... and there it is ... my brand new Alabaster Silver Civic, all shiny and new. Cool!

We drove to the car park where my old car was parked. It looked as if to say that it was hurt that I was giving her up. That was my sad moment. I never really thought about how much I will miss her until the moment came where I cleared all my stuff and I had to see her being driven away by strangers. I will miss her truly.

So here I am with my new car .... looking all sexy and cool .... and I have to learn to trust her and built my trust again. And in time, she will form part of my life.

Isn't this how we usually approach life in general. We build interests over time, people and things, then one day you feel like you have out grown them, you have a change in needs and you want so much more. You decide to take that step, nurture new things, interests ... and you take a bold step. You discover so m
uch more, just like me discovering my new car. In time your new interests will be part of your life.

And you will be struck with the same thought as I see my old car being driven away .... Did I really need that change in the first place? What would have happened if I had stuck with the original plans?

3 days ago, Ryan had another milestone achieved.
He was able to count 1-2-3 till 10, all in order!

He was extremely pleased with himself, although I am sure he does not know what he is counting, nor does he know what counting is. But the amazing thing is that at my bro's place the other day, he started to count the fake fishes in the tank and he stopped at 4 - exactly the number of fishes in the tank! So maybe he does know what he is counting after all!

Kiasu mum has started to teach him 11 and 12 and also started with the A-B-Cs ... then I read the article in the newspaper which said kids nowadays are more suicidal because of pressure from the parents ... aiyks!!

For most people, 33 is just another number they see everyday.
For me, this number brings a whole new meaning - this is my age in less than a week's time.

How do I feel?
Well, as weird as it may sound, I actually feel very happy.
I am not one to hide my age and declare I am 5 years younger, on the contrary, I have always embraced my age as it comes and this year, I will be 33 years old.

I am not sure if I can say that I am wiser, but I am definitely living every bit of my age. I hope this year will bring me better health and happiness to the family and friends. Of course, some additional wealth would not hurt as well.

And ever since I have Ryan, I have also begun to reflect on my mother whenever my birthday comes - thank you mum for bringing me to this world and for building all my initial years to what I am today.

Here's to a brand new year for me!
