worried [21 Jun 2006|10:56am]
so, it looks as if my mom has contracted dengue fever (ber, you know what this is like). she had experienced a persistent high fever, so my dad took her to the hospital and they were running tests.

the bad news is that her platelet count is low (blood cells that help with clotting) and from what i'm reading this is associated with the more serious and potentially fatal dengue haemmorrhagic fever. if the count continues to drop, my brother will fly to dhaka on the weekend.

i'm pretty worried over here...i am going to try and call her at the hospital tonight (morning their time).

simple pleasures... [11 May 2006|01:18pm]
10 simple pleasures...wow, this is difficult.

1. a good asian film: nothing beats the way i feel after seeing a film i love (and they are generally the asian ones). i end up sitting there thinking about it, analyzing it and putting it into context.

2. a night out dancing: dancing is one of the times when i feel my happiest and most free. too bad this doesn't happen nearly often enough in my old age (and also because my friends are lame and don't ever want to dance, minus jesse of course).

3. good food: i love to try new things and new flavour combinations. i watch cooking shows all the time even though i can't eat most of the things that they make. i just like thinking of how different foods will work together...it's so creative!

4. jay dee: his beats make me smile and help me get through the toughest times.

5. curling up into balls: i love curling up under a blanket, bonus points for cuddles and backrubs.

6. final fantasy: something about getting lost in a fictitious world with the ability to evoke so much emotion in me is a strange but soothing form of escape.

7. aesthetically pleasing things: from a young age i was told that i have a "great appreciation for beauty"...photographs, architecture, plants, wildlife, furniture, design elements...i notice many details and they make me very happy.

8. shopping: so simple yet so fulfilling. even if i don't buy anything, there's something to be said for spending many hours wandering around and trying things on (ber i know you hate this)!

9. my family: my favourite times and memories are when my mom and my aunts get together with a harmonium and all sing. my cousins and i are usually all curled up together listening...this is the best when we are at my grandmother's house in her sitting room and they are all sitting cross-legged on the floor.

10. physical challenges: be it breaking, muy thai, boxing, yoga, pilates...i like pushing myself to my limits. nothing beats the feeling of accomplishment and the endorphin rush afterwards.

i'm starting to feel as if for the last 9 years that i've been in toronto i've been trying to recapture some of normalcy in my life and to make this place home...

it's like i'm trying to live the life that could have been had i not moved away.

i'm thinking i should feel lucky to have had the opportunity to be a bit of a 'world citizen' and stop trying to have a life like everyone else...

there is no reason for me to be tied down to toronto...it doesn't even feel like home!

i'm not saying i'm leaving, just that this is a different way to look at things and maybe broadens the scope of my options just a little bit.

i think i might be ready to have friends/be a friend again...i was in a really shitty head space for the past year and i haven't even been able to be a really good friend to myself even...

but now i really feel the need to let people in...and to be there for others...

i really feel the need to get my life started...and stop stalling and distracting myself with work, when there are things out there that are infinitely more important to me...

i need this now...

i'm tired and looking out the large windows at the street.

as much as i say i like winter more than summer...it doesn't look so pretty outside right now.

it was really hard to get out of bed this morning. no matter how early i try to get to bed it never seems like there is enough time to cuddle in the morning.

cuddling is arguably my favourite activity.

nothing of substance really to say.

belated bday entry [01 Dec 2003|03:02pm]
sometimes it seems the best thing about my bday is that i get phonecalls and messages from people that don't usually call. it's nice to know that someone is thinking of me.

gynee will understand how surprised i was to get a belated message from adam.

wracking... [27 Oct 2003|04:05pm]

this past few days i have felt on edge. i am not sure of the exact combination of events and feelings that have brought me to this particular place.

i have another interview at the film fest this evening.

i suppose that's my main stress and we shall see if my cloudy mood subsides after tonight. otherwise it could be the prospect of being here until late on friday night to do inventory or spending a weekend alone in my apartment.

i just want to relax.

[ mood | confused ]

sometimes i have to wonder if i have the tendency to blow things a little bit out of proportion...

or rather i know i do...what to do about it?
