Run Run Run

Jenny Curran once shouted in the movie Forrest Gump :

"Run Forrest, Run."

          Year 2013 is fast-approaching in 44 days and did you still have the same old problem that bugging you since January? I believed that whenever we are involved in complicated situations, we don't walk away from it. Instead we should start to RUN, because our life is so precious than the situation.

          You should start running from people who keep hurting you. Stand up for yourself. Sometimes we suffer, not because of the violence others inflict on us, but because of our own silence. 

           Secondly, you should start running from superficial stereotyping. If you judge others by their skin color, their body size, and their outer beauty, you will miss everything about who they really are.

          At the same time, you should start running from people who only tell you about what you wanted to hear. You must remember that you are not a back-up plan.  You are worth more than someone’s second choice. 

          Furthermore, please run away from negativity. Sometimes life sucks. Sometimes life gets so hard that you don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. Sometimes life is so stressful that all you want to do is cry. But sometimes life is beautiful if we start to believe in it.

           Last but not least, run as far as possible from a guy or a girl that didn't love you with all their heart. If another person steals the heart of the person you love, be thankful that you learned the truth sooner rather than later. Because their love was never true as true love can’t be stolen.

           And perhaps, a groovy kind of life is just around the corner for you.


To you whom I have met, 5 years and 300 days of knowing you seems like yesterday. Our love flown by in the blink of an eye, and I’ve loved and cherished every second of it. I can’t wait to build our family, to continue building our love, and to continue having you in my future, my Sabrina.

I still remember the first time we are supposed to met and I ended up being late for our meeting, but it changed my life forever, because you entered into my mind at that moment, and I knew I never wanted you to leave. Years later, you are still that same girl I can’t stop staring at across the block. That same girl I want to talk to even though I’m late. That same girl who makes me feel warm with her smile and the twirling of her hair.

376 letters still can't described how much my love for you. Every man can dream of having a Cinderella in their life but for me, you and only you is the life that I want now and in future. Until the day we meet again this December, look at the sky. Somewhere up there, I am looking at the same direction as you.

Loving you,

The Half Moon Serenades.

As Time Goes By

Dear hummingbird,

Audrey Hepburn once said:

                      "I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

       Few years ago, I remembered the moment when I wanted to the tell you about my feelings in person when I visited you in UM but then I thought I would write them in an e-mail, so you can hold on it no matter what the answer. 
       I have been in love with your for the past year.  I did not tell you of my feelings earlier because I feared losing you as friend. One has to be really lucky to have a friend like you.

       You have been there for me in the worst of times, and I feared I would lose an amazing friend like you forever. Then I realized that I wanted to tell you the truth as each moment away from the feelings makes me felt like a thousand deaths. I would rather lose you and live in sorrow, than spend the rest of my life wondering what if.

       As time goes by, I never regretted my decision. You are the most wonderful girl I have ever met and not falling in love with was never an option for me. It is impossible to find someone who is so beautiful in heart and form. I love you.

      This is the first time I have been in love & a girl returned it with all her heart and I am glad that fell in love with such a wonderful girl. Even if you do not feel the same I can go through life knowing that I fell in love with the right girl.

      There is so much more to say and yet I can say no more. All I can I hope that God has taken mercy on me and destined the best girl in the world in my life. 

      375 love letters still can't described how much I love you, every day.

By the moon I sit to seek your glory,
The red roses I gave created a new love story,
Seasons are many but the reason is few,
What remains is that I will always love you Sabrina.

Loving you,
The Half Moon Serenades.

The Rain of Love

André Paul Guillaume Gide once said:

"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore."

          During hot sunny day of June 2011, I was given a wonderful opportunity to work with Hui Wen, a cute six years old girl at the shelter home where I had volunteered since secondary school. She is a petite but sweet young girl with glittering black eyes and an unquenchable zest for life. She shows no sign of any mental or physical impairment yet, according to the caretaker, she was born premature and have some sort of disability in her movement. 

           I love the nature and for me, one of the best way to get up, close and personal with the kids is by bringing them closer to the nature which in turn, is our beautiful Penang Botanical Garden. And that was my destination with her.  As sweet as candy, Hui Wen still have a character of girl who is eager to learn just about everything that she saw with her beautiful eyes.
          Suddenly she asked me, "Did you smell something?"

          Well, I can see that the dark cloud is fast approaching across the hill and immediately I told her, "It was the smell of the rain my dear, and we are about to get wet".

           Jokingly she replied that it wasn't the smell of the rain, but it was the smell of happiness right from her heart. For no particular reason, she said that day, is the happiest day of her life. For the first time since she stayed at the shelter home, some one took her out to this beautiful place and enjoying the wonders of nature , and she feels loved.

            Well, I can felt that tears blurred in my eyes as Hui Wen happily hopped down to play with the other children before the rain came. During those long days and nights of the first few years of her life, when her nerves were too sensitive to be touched, I believed that God was holding Hui Wen very dearly in His blessing, and it is love that makes her a young brave girl that appreciate love so well.

            I am happy that I can provide happiness to the kids at the shelter home. I just can't let myself enjoying the richness of this world knowing that some where out there, there is a lot of tiny little heart who yearned to have a time out with someone who care for them. I am not rich with money but sure I am rich with time because I believed love knows no boundaries.

           Perhaps one day, life will be fairer to them and groovy kind of love will never stop raining down.


To you whom I have met, I love you. I love everything about you, your simple life that enchanted me, your smile that melted my heart, your eyes that full of passion and most of all, your endless love that showered towards me.

With you, I felt like I am one step closer of being a complete person. Life for me is about the pursuit of happiness, neverending. But having you right here in my heart, I am enjoying every moment of my life with no regret about the past.

For 374 love letters, I had expressed my love towards you, some anonymously, some with a hint of clue and some as open as this letter, but yet I still couldn't find a proper word to describe how much I loved you in my heart.

I want you to be the happiest girl in the world, or perhaps one of the happiest. Leap as high as possible in your life Sabrina, knowing that my love will lead you home at the end of the day. There will be no monument about me in future about my work and volunteer life, but loving you and be your man of honor, is the best achievement in that I can achieve one day.

Forever In Love,

The Half Moon Serenades.
