Fairy Tale Wedding

Yes, Yes, I am referring to The Royal Wedding which had taken place recently, well in fact, it was yesterday! To people like us, it was truly a fairy-tale came true incidents. It is exactly what we always heard from the story book that we have read since small, “they live happily ever after”.

I believe the question of “Will this royal couple live happily ever after?” certainly pop out in our brain. It’s true that everyone was once terrified by the tragic death of Princess Diana which consequently invite a lots of questions regarding how the royal family would accept girls who are not born to be a princess to be part of their family members. It might sound cynical and absurd as to how we claimed ourselves to be civilised and living in this modern world, agree to recognise the importance of status.

I personally felt it would be much luckier and different for Kate, The Duchess of Cambridge. I sincerely believe both the Royal Couple will be able to create a happy ending to their fairy-tales. Looking back at time, 1981, where Princess Diana once married to Prince Charles. She had a different fate, different pathway, the more difficult and cumbersome one. During that time, the Royal Family was not as open-minded as what they were now to accept a girl-next-door to be part of their family. Hence, life was not a bed of roses for Princess Diana. There was once I heard a quote which sounded like this, “the people who has always smile the most in front of others, in fact are the saddest one from within”. Perhaps this would be the most accurate quote to describe my feeling towards Princess Diana.

As sang by Elton John in one of his songs, Candle In The Wind,
“And it seems to me you lived your life,
Like a candle in the wind,
Never knowing who to cling to,
When the rain set in”
I think it truly portray the feelings of the admirers of Princess Diana after her tragic death in 1997.

Followed the death of Princess Diana, millions of the heart of the admirers of Princess Diana were shattered. Her death invites the thoughts of “mistreated Princess by the Royal Family” into their heart. It is because the great charisma of Princess Diana which impart an excellent and touching impression on people, that we begin to feel that non-existence of fairy-tale between the royals and non-royals. As a result, people started to losing their faith on the monarchy system of United Kingdom.

The royal wedding of Prince William and Kate hence somehow play an important role to reunite and rebuild the faith of the people of United Kingdom to the monarchy system which had been practise way back then. With the acceptance of the Royal Family to their new member who is not born as princess, this mark the second opportunity for the Royal Family to prove their open-mindedness which were once tested.

Thus, it made me believe that Kate is definitely in a far-off-better position compared to Princess Diana. With other elements around, I am sure both the Royal Couple will be able to held their hands together and stay happily ever after.

Have faith with fairy-tales cause who know you might be next one 😀

Best wishes for the Royal Couples 😀

Impending Post

Truly speaking, I am finding it hard to arrange thoughts into words. I guess that’s why it took me so long to write this impending post.

In my life, there are always miracles taking place when I felt I will be in a deep trouble. Its true! I always believe in that. There will always be a helping hands; a good advice deliver to me in a unique way. This time, it did the same as well!

Before I attended the church activities (for those who had read my previous post long ago, you would understand why I will attend these activities occasionally), I am seriously finding hard to arrange my thoughts regarding the things that happened lately. There was this one special story or should I called it as teachings/preachings told by the pastor. It’s about one thing, called -Scandalon. Personally, this is the first time I came across with this term.

Scandalon, in the bible, referred to some kind of obstacles or physical stone/barrier planted by people on the ground, with the hope to trap the trespassers. The pastor continued by telling a story which was dated back 2000 years ago, where there is one innocent man-Mark. During those days, the law commanded that whoever found to be have any small or tiny spots/pimples on their face, shall be called and labelled as having leprosy (an infectious disease) and to be isolated from the community. Poor Mark, was spotted to have the pimple and he was brought forward to see the priest. Despite thousand times of pleading, Mark was being labelled as Lepor and was sent out of the community. He was trap in a group of people with leprosy. 10 years later, Jesus passed by the valley and Mark called out for Him as Mark heard from rumours that Jesus is able to make the blind see and did many wonderful things to the unfortunates. Jesus told Mark to let go of the anger and the only way to get himself out from the scandalon is to forgive the people who condemned him. Finally, Mark risk his life and made his way to the community and forgive the priest. Miracle happened! He was healed from Leprosy!

As a matter of fact, we are unable to avoid offenses in our life. In the modern wold context, these scandolon will always be place around you. You just cannot avoid it. It’s true that it is very frustrating, annoying, disappointing when offenses hit you numerous time. Thousands of offenses yet are we able to focus on each of it and get mad over it? How much energy left for us to deal with other important and necessary things in our life? In fact, people who plant the scandalon might not even remember they did it before, they just get going with their life while you are being stuck and held behind by angers!

Yes, I felt this is so much true and yet I am held back by this scandolon recently. I have to say, I am really really really stupid! Haha!

I am glad that I came across this story! See, this is what I meant by miracle in my life!

So, message to be taken home after reading this post, do not held back by scandalon. Appreciate your life and keep moving forward. Make sure you lead a better life than they did, not for the sake of them, but it’s for the sake of yourself 😀

Thank You!

Not The Impending Post

From my last post, I mentioned about one impending post. Well, this is not the impending post that I refer to because believe it or not, this post that I’m writing now is something that I want to pour out before I go into full-blown madness. It’s hard to accept the fact that I want to get angry over incidents like this. Years of learning will be proven ineffective and this will be quite a disappointment to myself.

I guess recent talks with best friends from highschool is what giving rise to this ranting. I had to say secondary school is the place where you know your friends the best. It’s quite mysterious yet believable because its taking place all these whiles. No matter how stupid you act, these friends who have know you for years will response the same way as you did. Unfortunately, as we getting older and stepping into a different setting in the society, you can hardly find a magical moment which resemble to the above. It’s either people knowing you partially and pass the judgement based on these partial-knowing opinions or they straight away judge you from the first impression.

I always carry the principle that I won’t try to correct the judgement which is imparted by other people who barely know me. Trying so hard to convince people that you are not what they think of you is like trying to persuade the cow not to eat grass! I have been practising it quite well and here I am, in such weird situation. The truth is I slightly out-of-track right now. Hypocrite, am I? I get mad by these people who barely know me; who barely try to get to know who I am. I know it doesn’t make sense when you are angry over things that you know its hard to change, especially how people view you. I should give myself a pity laugh. I did not realise how these feelings taking over me. Now, I have to accept the fact it does affecting me and the way I am. I am not who I used to be (well, just in this area 😀 ).

Ranting ended. *relief*

I think I should really appreciate things that I have rather than trying so hard to change the view of other people, hoping that they will know me better. Changing to another new perspectives, I think I am quite lucky enough to meet such different people. To appreciate the flawless, there must be the presence of flaws.

Thank You 😀
