Marchin' On

For those days we felt like a mistake
Those times when loves what you hate
we keep marchin on

For those nights that i couldn't be there,
I've made it harder to know that you know
That somehow
We'll keep movin' on

There's so many wars we fought
There's so many things we're not
But with what we have
I promise you that
We're marchin' on
We're marchin' on

There's so many wars we fought
There's so many things we're not
But with what we have
I promise you that
We're marchin' on
We're marchin' on

So many hills we had to climb
almost without our strength
but we kept
slowly marchin on

time heals the wounds we couldnt close
blood sweat and tears dried up
we're okay
we kept marchin on

There's so many wars we fought
There's so many things we're not
But with what we have
I promise you that
We're marchin' on
We're marchin' on

There's so many wars we fought
There's so many things we're not
But with what we have
I promise you that
We're marchin' on
We're marchin' on

get your legs and walk
cause we're not too far
a little more to go
but we're marchin on
we marchin on
we marchin on
we marchin on
we marchin

if we lose the sun we couldnt deny that
if we go the wind we gotta fight back
but we marchin on
we marchin on
we marchin on
we marchin

the bridges are gone
and we're almost home
the end is close

There's so many wars we fought
There's so many things we're not
But with what we have
I promise you that
We're marchin' on
We're marchin' on

There's so many wars we fought
There's so many things we're not
But with what we have
I promise you that
We're marchin' on
We're marchin' on

(One Republic's Marchin' On)

( I made myself a Daisy in black and white version. It's never easy and always challenging and it has always been one of my favorite . I'm  glad to have it done *wink*wink* ;))

Coffee Anyone?....

I am not originally a coffee drinker, but i guess i have become one.  It smells good. It sure does taste good too. And it comes to a point where ever morning i would make myself a cup of coffee. It's like i need it to make me awake and alert in the morning. hmmm... does it means i'm addicted to coffee?....

I saw my sister posted something on her FB wall yesterday that made me think about the pros and cons of drinking coffee, so without hesitating, i went to googled it and this is the findings:

The Pros:
-coffee provide antioxidants.
-helps to reduce parkinson's disease, diabetes, liver cirrhosis, gallstones and kidney stones, alzheimer's disease, asthma.
-helps to improve mental perfomance

The Cons:
Obviously it causes a lot of health diseases i.e heartburn, affecting the blood pressure, cholesterol. And yes it may causes insomnia too.

hmmm.. My point of view?.. To those coffee lovers out there, it's okay to drink coffee, as long as we take it moderately.

Got this picture from a friend. So?.. which way you prefer? (^^,)

Kinabatangan Corridor of Life

It’s common for those who call themselves ‘environmentalist’ doing jobs under the sun and yes not to mention under the rain. Being an outdoor person, I don’t mind all those things (just don’t put me too long indoor, or else,I’ll get rotten! (><,).

Frankly speaking, for the past three years getting myself involve in environmental field, I’ve been to so many places in Sabah (sampai di pisuk-pisuk Sabah sudah saya masuk merantau ni;)). Well that’s the way my job is. Most of the time, I will go to places via roads; an advantage for me to get to know the “road less taken” or “short-cuts” to minimize our travelling time (nahh..buli sudah saya ikut “short-cut” hehe). 

The crew
My most memorable work trip?.. That would probably be the Kinabatangan Corridor of Life. I was up there in the blue sky flying in a chopper (1st time tu naik chopper ;P).

So what was i doing up there?.. Aerial survey! I used to do socio survey (you know when you go into villages and start asking 'boring' questions? i.e: Berapa lama sudah kamu tinggal di kampung ni? Dari mana sumber air kamu? bla bla bla.. fuhhh...><, 

But this time we did survey from up above. We were trying our best to identify the places, rivers and perhaps elephants (mmmnope.. it wasn't my luck to see even a glimpse of an elephant from up there). We took off from Sabah Air (Sandakan branch) and the journey started from Sandakan town, flew over the Berhala island then heading to Kinabatangan area. The view was spectacular. Armed with my nikon camera  (sadly it's not a dslr, if only i brought it that day ;( )and maps in my hand, i tried my best to identify the places we discussed earlier. 

Flying low over the Kinabatangan River.
It was much easier then to see everything from up there. There was once we flew over some villages in Sukau, when i thought i saw someone was having a shower in a poorly constructed bathroom (open air lagi tu! hehehe notty, notty me!). Those who noticed us waved up. Excited, we waved them back.

Up here, i could see two types of view; beautiful scene of mother nature and a scene where mother nature has been 'tortured' by human race;  illegal logging. It is of no wonder why our forest is depleting day by day. 

And that's the reason of the establishment of the Kinabatangan Corridor of Life - aims to establish a balance between the growing demands of private land development, the local community and the need to protects its unique wildlife!

Kinabatangan river.
It was a great pleasure to be able to work with WWF and doing some GIS works. I enjoyed the air trip as well (^^,). 

And not forgetting Mr. Will for treating us ikan bakar for lunch after the trip haha.

The KCOL crews (hmm shouldn't do the vignetting..)

Seriously I don’t think those with a family would love to have a job like me. Anyone in my shoes will have to travel a lot and be resilient. 

But anyway, for me it’s fun (ok lah daripada saya duduk terjeruk di upis hahaha).



I'm tired looking at the reports i am writing.. Well, well what can i say? It's my job for the last 3 years.. You guys might be wondering what sort of reports i'm talking about here. Ever heard Environmental Impact Assessment or famously known as EIA (among the environmentalist)? Nope? Ok i get it. Not so many people into environment or nature nowadays..

If i could do magic by snapping my finger, i would find myself lazing at the beach, underneath the coconut trees with a good book in my hand enjoying the sea breeze and blue sky or, or the sunset (^^,)..or with a DSLR taking pictures.


It's just an imagination. The reality? I'm still stuck in my office;(. So many things happened recently, up and down but i guess that's just the way life is. And I guess i really need a break or a holiday.. I mean a 'real' long holiday..Will plan for that soon..hmmmmmmmmm.......

Ciao for now..


One of my favorite place! Well i'm a beach-maniac after all (lol).

Angels’ Cry
She was lost in so many different ways, in the darkness with no guide. Life is a maze and love is a riddle, she doesn’t know where to go. 

She has been alone when surrounded by friends. She thought “how could the silence be so loud?” Her bitter heart keeps getting more fragile each day.

The final blow hit so low, which made her still on the ground. She couldn’t have prepared for the fall, shattered in pieces, curled on the floor. She thought again, that limitless omnipresent kind of love couldn’t have guessed it would just stop and disappear in the whirlwind.

And there she was, walking on a narrow robe, wobbling, but won’t let go, waiting for a glimpse of the sun’s glow. Again she tried to make things right, she was on the edge, trying to survive as the angels cried.

She remembered she used to touch the sky, she knew she could stand back up, just needed to be pulled up, she was willing to live and die for what she thought belong to her.

She’s just a soul lost in the moment, scared yet doesn’t show it. She can’t figure it out and it’s bringing her down. She knows it’s time to let it go. She felt the angels cried as she said good bye….

Sitting there watching the sunset,
I thought I was fed up.
All they talk about is what is going on,
What's been messed up..
They say we need more money, we need more love, 
That changes gonna come like the weather...

But when i look around i see the beauty in the world,
Gotta stop and smell the flowers,
Listen to the sound,
It's sweet music and dance..

When i don't know what to do,
Don't know if i make it through,
I just remember that God is giving me,
Beauty in the world..

And i just continue to love..

“1, 2, 3 smile!” at last I got these three little tot in place and style; perfect enough for me to make them fit into the viewfinder;). I love to look at those genuine smiles carved on these little ones’ faces. The joy they had when I took their pictures was radiated in their smiles.

Angel is my little niece, and those other two tots are her friends, best friends indeed. All day long, they were just playing non-stop running here and there, giggling and laughing at each other. Sometimes I found them pretending sailing in a big ship, other time I would find them hijacking a train, if it wasn’t a train then it would be a car. At other times I would find them laughing or giggling at each other. Well what can I say? There are just kids. Welcome to the kiddy world.

Though I could not really understand what were they laughing at or what made them giggled, they made me smile and reminded me that I was once a hyperactive gullible tot too ;) (Well not anymore hahaha). 

One day she’s going to thank me for taking this picture (LOL).
