Bicycle

I looked upon with curiosity in writing another story despite of a breathtaking experience and nostalgic day I never expected to have in Mine Thouk, Nyaung Shwe, Shan State, Myanmar. It was one cloudy Friday, twenty-seventh day of July when I found myself spaced out of so many random things rendering me into deep thoughts….

Being One of Them

I have been wanting to write about the excursion but never have the time for it. But since it’s a week-long holiday these days, I decided to indulge finishing a write-up of the said activity. It’s really been a year since I last posted something on my blog anyway. I was later informed going to…

Life’s Uncertain Path

Life, as easy or difficult it can be, is unpredictable. We were given an opportunity and had been trying to grab it. And now we have it, we may be wondering that something is still not right sooner or later. I have been working abroad for almost two years and yet, I have never gone…

Inside My Inner World

This essay was written when I was still nineteen. It was my fourth attempt in writing personal essay as a course requirement in our Writing Non-fiction class. I had to reach out for myself towards people way back then, so I thought I could write something about myself as one way for me to know…

On This Auspicious August

At first, I was a little bit reluctant, insecure and bashful to talk to various people or locals, perhaps of the language barrier or what they think of me. However, my…

Bountiful Signs of July

I have been working abroad for a year, and this is my first time to have been doing a volunteer work for a long period of time without going back home. This is very interesting for me though, because it actually makes me feel like a better person for helping someone in the community. It…

A Jubilant June

How is the month of June for you? Was it good? Was it bad? Did it bring you excitements or disappointments? If you were to ask me how was my June, it was truly amazing and fantastic, a truly jubilant month I would say. I haven’t had many photos for this month, but I really…

Highlights of May

May has been a great, exciting and memorable month for me just like any other months. And just as I hoped last May 1st, the said month has been a good one for me. Another month has come to an end and another set of wonderful memories have been collected as I walked along its…

Amazing April Memories

“Time passes, things change, but memories will always stay where they are, in the heart.” – Sarah Moores Never have I noticed the details of each day passing by. The month of May is on its way. April may end, but I have collected more priceless memories along the way. Sometimes, I would reflect how…
