2 nights ago, in the middle of the night, I received a picture of my friend showing off her diamond engagement ring, together with her now fiance via WhatsApp. The wonder of technology. She is in New York City, and here I am in our little home town of Kota Kinabalu, and still we get the message across in an instant!
Congratulations my dear friend, after all these years, finally, you two are engaged! I just hope timing is right and I might be able to be there by your side on your wedding day! Love you lots, Lis!
You waited to graduate
You waited to get a job
You waited for the right person to come along
You waited to get married
You waited to be financially ready; to buy a house, to have children. …
You waited and waited
For the right moments to come
Then you realised…
Time and life have passed you by…
Next thing you know…
You missed a lot of things…
There’s not enough time to catch up…
And ended up just waiting to die!
When a music composer feels a little melancholy, that is when they will come up with some brilliant melody. Looking at johnson guitar at musicians friend I know it will be a useful instrument for someone with musical talent.
For someone like me, words is all that I have. I blog, I write poems and speaks in metaphors. I listen to music to have my soul healed. Just like any other human, bottled up feelings is never good. I have been accused of being emotional, maybe I am. However, there are just something that best kept hidden from the world.
Putting the mask on and smiling brilliantly to the world.
In computing, a firewall is a software or hardware-based network security system that controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic by analyzing the data packets and determining whether they should be allowed through or not, based on applied rule set. Firewalls can be defined in many ways according to your level of understanding. A firewall establishes a barrier between a trusted, secure internal network and another network (e.g., the Internet) that is not assumed to be secure and trusted. - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firewall_(computing)
As a human, this can be applied too. This happens all the time to protect yourself from all the unwanted situation or feelings that will keep you numb. Usually, it is a barrier to protect yourself from being hurt. A defence mechanism. Survival mode. To get through life easier. However, just like in computing terms, the firewall in human too, can be breached.
The music industry has grown so much now, and with technology, recording is so much easier and convenient even for those who wants to sing for fun. Back in my childhood days, we would have to wait for our favourite radio segment to listen to our favourite songs, and then used the radio cassette to record the songs that we like. We would have to be fast to start recording and press stop before the advertisements got in the way of that recording.
Now everything is right on top of your finger. Just a few clicks or flicks away, you’ll get the music or just about anything for that matter. If you want to record your own voice, there are so many applications out there, or audio recording ipad 4 for that purpose.
I am one of those people who appreciates technology so much. Everything is so much easier now as long as you have the Internet access. I’m sure, in 10 years time, there will be more improvements and we’ll be looking back and laugh how good we think the Internet in this era is, just like we are now about how it was 10 years back. Looking forward to see the progress.
