HOME — where the water flows freely and the birds sing heavenly, where the soul rests in tranquility and the heart beats soundly, where the air smells fresh and the wind blows coldly, where the sun plays hide & seek and the moon rises calmly, where the clouds embrace the mountains high, the rain splits splats and the rainbow display is sometimes more than just one at a time.

Tug at My Heartstring


When the energy of the day finally dies down and silence takes on the center stage, I look back on the day that was and I think of home. In this fast paced world that I am currently living in, life is slipping too fast that I couldn’t even grasp perfectly one thing, another pops in. The clock seems to be ticking faster than it should and before I know it, I’ve got to change my calendar. And I think of home.

Hungduan: Off the Usual

(This was posted on my Facebook Notes. I’ve posted this while I was on a year-long respite back home. The heat at the moment in my host country is too much and it makes me miss home all the more. I wanna share this on my blog for this is one of the reasons why I miss home.)

I always believe that there is more to what we are presented with, but we have to walk the extra mile to discover them.  So now that I am home for a longer period, I thought this would be a perfect time to shelve my heels in place of my boots and uncover the MAGNIFICENCE of Home, off the usual.  Off the usual and I mean the side of Hungduan that is truly awe-inspiring yet often missed, with hopes that these natural and man-made wonders will be appreciated, respected and preserved.
