Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind


It's been told to me many times by friends about this film... I think it's in this "Break-up Movie" Category that I kept a tab on. I didn't watch sad movies or those heartfelt films for a while (for four years?) Since I don't want to feel sad while I'm in a Long Distance Relationship... I think I had an altered reality that got me by in that four years.

Changing my "About Me"

Change. Change is inevitable. Unwanted change is a dagger. So here we go...

I think it's time to change my Profile "About Me" here in my blog as painful as it is to me. It's no longer true. I should live in truth no matter how painful it is.

Wow! Am I on a roll here or what?! Despite facing storms in the personal department, calling off my engagement and dealing with a very bitter break-up, I still have something to be thankful about. At least I know, dreams won't leave you hanging, unlike boyfriends. How sad.

Forget me not (โฆษณาไทยประกันชีวิต)



I saw this video in my newsfeed, I can't remember who posted it in my newsfeed but it was truly touching. How sweet it is to grow old and be taken care of the person who loves you the most. Wish someday I can also find this kind of love, a love that will unconditionally give. 

To live a full life side by side with you soulmate, I think that's the best life to live. Money? Job? Career? Fame? Doesn't matter when you're old and sick.

In the past few nights, I have been watching this kind of videos, to make me remember what love is all about. I've lost myself in the past few years. I lost my faith in good deeds and love. Watching this may be a fictional make-believe, but I would like to hope and find love that will last (well, it's okay if not forever as long as I would be loved) for the rest of my life or my other half.

Few years has passed, so many people, friends, clients and everybody else has moved, changed and started new lives. But here I am still, waiting for nothing apparently. Faith was so mean and cruel to me... Life requires me so much things to do, responsibilities and sacrifices... In the end I was used up, time passed and hopes and dreams crushed.

How I wish I can live life where I don't have to be used up and serve so much just for love. A broken life... But still life goes on.

That Kind of Love that Never Fails...




Yes. I am a cheeseball. This is pretty old school, but I've kept this song close to my heart... Celine Dion's "Because You Love Me" is my mental checklist of "How Love Should Be" in my own sappy belief... It's like that Bible Verse: I Corinthians 13:1-13. I'm not religious but I believe in this verse too. Sometimes I get too carried away with my emotions that I forget what love is. It's been a while even that I've looked at this verse... I just realized. Well, let me just put it here as part of my life notes (and Adobe Photoshop practice hehe)

I Corinthians 13:1-13

Tracy's Dear Diary: The Hello-Goodbye's of 2015

January 1, 2015 ~ We write our 絵馬 prayers for the 2015... Saying Hello's and Goodbye's entering 2015!

It feels ancient going back here. Hello, I'm back to attempt writing again. I must admit that this is not the first time I've tried but failed on writing here. The wounds cuts so deeply that I am not ready to speak yet... Or perhaps, I was not ready to speak in coherent form... I rant when it was too painful and I cry defeatedly until I fall asleep or get sick for the past couple of months. I don't write to be a downer, this is my only form of assertive release... Writing and reflecting helps me assess myself in a few years timeline or so... I want to remember my heart's desires and I want to look back at my life how far different I've changed or managed to stay the same. It's a humbling and fulfilling feeling for me.

My Own "Teenage Dream"


Katy Perry's Teenage Dream will always be a special song in my heart... I used to play it on loop in full blast in my small and simple Samsung Corby cellphone as I take my 1 hour jeep commute on my way to my production house and hat makers. It was a simple life then... I prepare my son on his way to school, take a little nap and start the day with much designs and hands-on work... Go to Divisoria, deliver some designs, I was functional and fulfilled.

I had to listen to it on loop... Over and over again because I have to convince myself. I want to believe... and it did. It made me believe that LOVE can be so powerful you are not afraid to make mistakes, I want to believe in a love that is so brave to jump... Being a person with a heavy past, many mistakes and many disgusting trolls I have to meet... I need to believe that I can still find a love that will make me feel unbroken again. 

That's what you brought into my life, Katy Perry... Hope and Forgiveness... Hope I can fall in love again that I will be carefree... FREE! Love can make you feel free and learn to forgive myself from the dark wounds of my past. Everyone makes mistakes and as long as we are alive, we can make a fresh start.
