"I need vitamin-sea!!!"

"I miss the sea... but not so much of the sun...."

"I need to get into the water!!!"


"I'm dive deprived!!!"

....those are some familiar complaints my friends heard from me for the past few weeks.

The last dive trip I made was in September 2015 at Tenggol Island
and it has been 4 long months since I touched the soft sand on the beach,
and the salty sea water that always calm me down.

I'm yearning for another dive trip.. the month of May seems like a long way to go!

Me in May!

While waiting for another dive trip in May to take my breath away again, I could only 
cure my dive hunger by viewing photos and videos of the previous trips. And this made me reminisce about one of the most memorable trips to Subic Bay & Anilao at the Philippines 
in Dec 2014 where my main objective is to dive with the dolphins and sharks.

The dolphin showed us some tricks taught by his trainer.. he is one very amazing performer!

I stole his kiss... but he stole my heart~
kiss dolphins
I will definitely go back to visit you all again!

Why are the kissing dolphins photos online so much cooler than mine?

While I can go on and on about how much I needed a dive trip,
I'm just glad that I finally have a day off after working 14 days
non-stop, clocking approximately 135 hours for the past 2 weeks!
*so proud of myself for not breaking any bones or any brain nervous system*

It's an off day well deserved and I enjoyed my day out with friends, pampered 
myself with a 90-minute Thai massage, had a great dinner at Meat Point, 
and a quick wine session to put me in a relaxing mood
before heading to bed, charging myself for another battle soon.

Goodnight peeps!

The Pixar movie Inside Out is a pretty good movie focusing on the emotions inside us, particularly the common emotions that we recognize as Joy, Anger, Disgust, Fear and Sadness.

My least likable character is Sadness. Being down, low energy, negative, and frown most of the time, it do not jive with my own character and it was hard for me to accept this character in the movie.

Hello Sadness...

All she did was ruining plans and lying down on the floor and cry! Seriously? That's the only role of Sadness in us?

Having to be visited by Sadness or rather her big boss called Depression again, I recognised the moments when I was conquered by no other emotion except for Sadness.

There are days when I would have to struggle to get out of bed, and there are days when I struggle to keep my eyes shut and try to get some sleep. Either way, I can't figure out what's bothering me.

And there are also days that I would just lie on my bed the whole day not wanting to do anything.

Sadness and Depression crashed into my mind uninvited and have stayed for few days now, and I would really love to kick them out of the door soon.

Yeah.. but no thank you? 

I'm sending invitation to Joy for a long stay!
