Bulls in Chinatown

Took a long walk around Chinatown, Singapore.

It had been a while since I last did this.

Chinatown has become very vibrant indeed especially since Chinese New Year is less then a month away.

Ushering in the year of the horse.
My favorite year!

And so.

It is warm.
Hot even, let it flow.
The blood that flows out of me.
Let it go.

Let it flood a river.
Come cascading down my spine.
Let it drip.
Drip down till it floods.

It’s cold.
Cold as frost.
The pane on my window.
Frozen in dusk.

I’ll gulp it down.
So no one shall see it.
The salty mess I’ve created.
A puddle.

I don’t feel a thing.
Not a thing in this cold.
No longer feel the blood in my veins.
Nor the cold on my finger tips.
Just emptiness.
A void consumed
Waiting for the light to come
awaiting.

Hound

The hound prowls in the dark corners of the street.
It snarls and bares it’s teeth.
Nervous bulging eyes darting endlessly.
Do not provoke it.
Do not go near it.

How it had gotten to be like this?
I cannot comprehend.
Must have been the doing of an evil man.
The hairs on it’s back stands.
I was just offering my hand.

In the chilly London street.
It drizzles.
The cobbled pavements glistering
I moist my lips
Amused by my companion.
Dear hound,
you need your pound of meat.
And I, I shall have mine.

My library

I woke to find:
A lioness stretched out on the couch.
And elephant in the room.
A monkey grinning as it swings upon the chandelier.
A snake slithering across the Persian mat.

2 doves basking in the morning light.
A black cat cleaning her whiskers.
A sly fox doing the foxtrot .
A parrot in a rainbow suit saying “how do you do”
An owl sitting cooly by the window still.

And my books all around me.
How they surround me.

Labyrinth Ball

Labyrinth ball

The David Bowie version has long been a favorite of mine. Especially this scene. Where the goblin king sings~

http://youtu.be/4nBjvElCzAw

Inspired by it…

You are so very quiet in my thoughts
in my dreams.
Just your crimson buds of red
Dazzling eyes
Charming grin.
In a labyrinth we spin
Round and round like tops
pushed by the wind.
In my dreams
Is this a dream.

Palms that touched
Flicked heart
Melted scented candles
In my dream
Hushed whispers
Your voice that ignites
As deathly as it is silent
Only in my dream
You are my dream

We always love the beach.

This is my 1st visit to a club med location and I had been so impressed.

From the excellent service from all the friendly staff, to the high energy GOs, the lovely beach and clear waters to the food. I enjoyed every min. I love that we could burst into dance any time or day. A truly fun experience for our church friends and ourselves.

20131223-153615.jpg20131223-153630.jpg20131223-153653.jpg
We were blessed to have clear skies almost every day.
The sand is soft and powdery and the water clear and warm.

A time to share and have fun!20131223-204434.jpg20131223-204453.jpg

A list of activities we could participate on daily. I tried the Pilates ( very tough), dance ( super fun), Aqua aerobics (even more fun ) and various stuff through out the day. I especially Love the mass dances between events 😀20131223-204758.jpg

Most days are spend being with the family. Lazing and musing.

We had a lesson and had fun worshiping.

Drinks and music were served by our handsome server and worship leader of the day.

Gary composed that beautiful song.

Lush greenery surrounded the club. 20131223-205443.jpg20131223-205555.jpg
