About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Spring is in the air

Spring is in the air.

The weather is getting warmer.

The birds and seagulls are all frolicking and also shitting everywhere. You need to have one eye on the sky and one eye on the ground to avoid the shit - so you become cockeyed ;P

The flowers are blooming everywhere including weeds.

Rijswijk is beginning to smell like a farm - honestly. They either use cow manure in the gardens or the Dutch farmers secretly take their cows and horses out for a walk at night through the town.

Of course the April showers have started, it has been raining everyday - if they call this rain, the should see some of the rain we get in Malaysia.

And as usual, it is time for spring cleaning. Even for me.

For the past 3 months, I have live somewhat as a relatively clean bachelor in my tiny little room in the Grand Winston.

But over this weekend, I have to do some spring cleaning. Start to pack up and throw away things that are to be discarded.

Time to clear up the area and create some space in the room.

I have about 10 more days left in the room but more so because wifey is coming to visit come towards the end of April, in about a week or so.

So, the spring cleaning has started and surprisingly, I have collected a lot of things over the 3 months. I read a lot, so magazines and books. These I will be sending via mail to Malaysia to reduce weight.

Music CD's, clothes, books, magazines, tickets, postcards, memories etc etc.

Spring is in the air,
some things to be packed,
some to be thrown,
some to be remembered,
some to be discarded,
some to be mailed,
some to be flown.

Spring is in the air,
one eye up and one eye down,
avoid the bird shit but smell the cow,
smell the flowers and walk on the grass,
see a squirming worm and a swarm of flies,
tulips blooms and tulips die.

See the Dutch on the bicycles,
zooming here and zooming there,
iPods in their ears and a mobile in their hand,
without a care in the world or any other man,
millions of cycles lay waiting, some forever;
these is where the old cycles came,
away from their extinction in China
into a new life in The Netherlands,
where the land is below the sea,
but oh no, it's no Atlantis.

Spring is in the air.

Take care and be well.
