Quiet

This small town is more quiet now as they are currently having a holiday. It’s my day off so here i am chilling at this tiny cafe.

I had some conversation with the owner of this place and it was good  to know more about this place and his interest for analog photography.

He showed me pictures of the mountains and lake nearby and it was stunning. If only i could share it here, but it wont be the same as witnessing those photographs with my very own eyes.

He told me about Reuters and their ban too, which i had no idea about before!

Read more here

I also found out about the wages here. The normal wages here is about 7 to 8 euro per hour. That’s a lot if we were to convert it back to MYR.

I am enjoying this quiet time alone. However,i still cannot pull myself away from the internet HAHA.

 

Life in Cannes?

I have about 8 days left here before we leave for PARIS. The lifestyle here is very relaxed. I like how people here are really really kind.

They would stop and give way to people when they are crossing the road every time. Personally,i find it admirable. It shows that they are polite and patient.

Cannes is a beautiful small town with pretty clear skies and wind that chills you to the bones. As long as i’ve been here, it has not rained yet. All i see is clear blue skies and flowers by the street.

Do not be fooled by the sun as the heat is not enough to beat out the cold wind.  I guess the hottest start can’t beat out a cold soul eh? JOKES.

The sea is blue. And like just like the sea, people here have clear blue eyes.

I’ve been walking around quite a lot. Cant wait for more! When we’re done with the scenes here, we’ll be moving around a lot more. Sadly my journey would end in Paris. But i’m looking forward to Monte Carlo and i hope i’ll get to set my feet there!

Au revoir.

Thoughts #3

I’ve always wanted to try wheels of fortune,

But too bad I aint got the fortune.

But one thing dad told me about fortune is,

REMEMBER! Always share your fortune.

 

A knife can be sharp,

A knife can be blunt.

But one sure thing is,

Getting stabbed isn’t nice.

 

You broke a vase,

Hence you lie.

Truth can be harsh,

But a lie can break a trust.

 

You see a feline,

Instead of helping you joined the laughing monkeys.

But just be sure you won’t start crying

When the monkeys start laughing at you.

My heart beats

I got, I got I got places to go
Actin’ like they feelin’ my pain, my pain
I got places to go
I got, I got
I got places to
Actin’ like they feelin’ my pain, my pain
I got places to go

I feel like we should get together
Then maybe I, I’ll feel so much better
And this rainy weather ain’t helpin’
Boys in leather jackets
They are walkin’ by
Yeah they remind me
How tiring work is
I just wanna fly away and ignore this
I just wanna call it quits, I’m a quick fix
While he’s out there taking his
I just need someone to break this wall of bricks I’ve built

So I wanna know
What’s the weather like in Toronto
This time of the year
It should be so cold
But I just need another place to go
Cause I can’t be here no more, no more

I got, I got
I got places to
Actin’ like they feelin’ my pain, my pain
I got places to go

I feel like work is overbearing me
And what is life when you are not even living?
I am tired of it all, pleasing everyone I know
Cause when I do it, I don’t know if it’s worth it
How tiring work is, yeah
I just wanna fly away and ignore this
Sometimes I wanna call it quits cause it’s a business
Everyone is making hits
I just wanna take a break from everything that I’ve been

So I wanna know
What’s the weather like in New York
This time of the year
It should be so cold
But I just need another place to go
Cause I can’t be here no more, no more
Cause I wanna know
What’s the weather like in Kuala Lumpur
This time of the year
It’s so beautiful
I just need a place to call home
Cause I can’t be here no more, no more

Here no more, no more
I got places to go
Here no more
Actin’ like they feelin’ my pain, my pain
I got places to go

I can’t be here no more, no more, no more
I got places to go
Actin’ like they feelin’ my pain, my pain
I got places to go

 

Yuna- Places to go

Thoughts #2

These came into my mind a few days back.

 

“They say that the world is round,

And when you start at a point, you’ll be back at it.

So I’d like to remind you,

What goes around comes back around.

 

You gotta love yourself,

Before you love somebody else.

You gotta feed yourself,

Before you feed somebody else.

 

At times when you find yourself alone,

Be calm,

Be wise,

Don’t let others get to you.

 

Stand on your own ground!

You have to guard your home.

Don’t let the wolf blow it off, or

Your poor self will be left with no ground!”

 

#Antisocial

After a few days here, there’s something that i’d really like to point out.

I enjoy people-watching so there is one thing that i noticed about people here. Compared to our ‘social life style’, people here are really, really social.

FACE TIME OR FACETIME?

Here, people rarely look down to their phones. As i am writing this down in this tiny cafe, locals are sitting down over a cuppa and talking to each other. I think it is pretty hard to find this in KL.

They greet everyone with “Bonjour’

and wave goodbye with “Au revoir”.

While in Malaysia?

We greet everyone with “yo” on Whatsapp.

and waltz out with a “gtg” on whatsapp.

That’s rather sad, to see technology consuming us. I am using myself as an example. My airbnb has no wifi and life has been HELL, after i acknowledged the fact that i am not “connected” with the rest of the world. The anxiety kicked in hard and it has NOT been easy. That shows how addicted i was with the internet.

I’d walk around just to look for wifi when i’m not working and when im connected, the rush that i get is unbelievable. The surge of relief. It shows that i’ve been so deprived, i could not function really well.

It scares me to know how addicted i am. But i’m coping with it well now. I am fighting of the anxiety that i get every night.

I am hoping that this time i get with limited connection will help me to get more connected with the real world.

Au revoir.

I’m alright

I’m alright.

The first few days has been hard. Especially with no internet connection hahaha. But people around me has been more welcoming and i’m finally adjusting well now.

I guess this is what we all had to go through every time we get to a new place. With new places. We gotta adapt and go with the flow. There is no point being stern as it will only make us view things negatively. So i’ve learnt to view things in positive manners and always be kind. To myself,to others,to whoever.

People here in Cannes are really polite and helpful. So i’ve decided to be like them.

Be kind,

Be helpful,

 

HOMESICK!!

I am missing home.

I am missing everyone back home.

I miss;

my room

my bed

my family

my friends

nasi lemak

roti canai

KL’s weather

It was nice here until the homesick hit me really hard. Especially with new people around me. You see, i dont mind being alone but what’s worse is when I’m surrounded with people who makes me feel more alone.
