    I'll spare the readers of a long novel and flowery, poetry like language which I wrote somewhere. Below is a true story of my life and also why photography has remained special to me.

    Just as the song by Johnny Hates Jazz 'Turn Back The Clock' goes "Another day is ended, And I still can't sleep, Remembering my yesterdays I begin to weep, If I could have it over, Live my life again, I wouldn't change a single day.... "

    If I could turn back the clock I'd relive the days when I used to know a special girl. I wish I could feel her one more time, but I was teeny tod then... I still remember the chilly nights at the beach when I could feel her body shiver and I'd hug her so tight and catch a scent of her. She had a certain scent which I'm very fond of. Sort of like a mix of puppy and caramel.
    To cut the story short, when I came to know she was dying, I couldn't accept it, and the only thing I can do was to pick up a camera and stole some precious moments we managed to have together. But when things got worse, I found myself reluctant to add anymore memories. I was too afraid.

    Then one day, while looking at the stormy horizon, I began to close my eyes, times we had together seems to be playing once again, and I could catch a scent of her once more... but this time, it gave me strength. I began to realise I was with her once again, I see her amongst the beautiful horizon, the gentle zephyr that whispers in my ears, the bench I sat on, she's beside me once again....

    I knew then, I had to go on with my life. But sometimes, when I'd walk all alone by the beach, and sit by the bench, closing my eyes.... I'd became 16yr old once more... running and playing by the beach, holding her tight

    In my room, beside my bed, there's a photo framed and frozen in time, in it were the happy times we had together.

    If only I could turn back the time, I'd choose to be by her side relishing every moment we had left, and have her in my arms till the very end.

    so don't give all out
    till she becomes ur wife.

    n if she leaves be4 that,
    she doesn't know what she is missing.
    the lost is hers.

    If you know the first prize, why buy "big"? everything on "small" will win more mah...

    If I could go back in time to early 90s, I would do everything the same except that I would spend every penny I have to buy stocks of Microsoft, Intel, Dell....

    Having said that I remember the movie called "Butterfly Effect"....I believe there is no way to change only one thing without effecting other things in life.
    As complexity rises, precise statements lose meaning and meaningful statements lose precision.

    Then we may not have internet to surf, probably we may still write on bamboo or sheep skin.

    If I can really turn back the clock once, I will want to go back to my young days and start over... Perhaps I will be as fat... Perhaps I could have got a better education... Perhaps I may be very different from now... Perhaps I would have a great voice by now... Well... All perhaps lah. But that would not come true, so just make do with what I am now, what I have now and what I can do now.

    Treat my mom well. Tell her I'm sorry I treated her badly. Hug her more often and telling her how much I knew she went through to bring me up. But sigh, there's no way we can turn back time..
