March in wonderland


Who's not tired and weary? I was sincere that Sunday morning when my mom asked me to get out of bed for my morning hike. The weather was perfect - cool and lazy at the same time. It was so hard. It was a tree-top walk, so I started with many other groups of hikers and families, only that I'm alone. I ended my walk at Mount Faber, and the view was yet again amazing. I stood and watched families and tourists getting hooked onto the cable, and recalled how it felt like to be hooked on one in Switzerland to the mountains when I was four. It was my first snow encounter, and all I remembered was how my excitement sprawled all over when I could finally leave the cabin.

I don't get such self-contained excitements anymore. As I grow with age, all I get are tension headaches that hurt so bad. I hate muscle relaxants especially when I have a pile of work, and all I do in fact is to sleep it off when I get too drowsy. But here's the view that I'd love to share, and a tired face of mine. Breathtaking isn't it?

  1. awww thats really a breathtaking view, its as i could now feel the mountain air haha~

    as we grow older we really unlearned to find pleasure from the simple and casual things in life when there is so much to worry about, but if we can manage to strike the balance all the time, life wouldnt be that multifaceted and challenging. life is rich bc it goes to its extremes :)

    1. Thank you connie! Your words are too motivational :) And it helped to pick me up a bit here! I think I'm still learning the art of striking a balance between everything else; I get too distracted easily :'( X

  2. You should come to Switzerland again but it's amazing how you remember your first snow encounter even though you were four then!

    1. I think it's partly due to the photographs my mom showed me when I was younger, and I could vividly feeding those pigeons, and tumbling in the snow... Pretty selective memory I had, and I remembered the different shaped cabins I boarded at different mountains, I'd love to go back one day!

    1. It is! For a small island like this, I couldn't ask for more :) Too many venture opportunities that I've never had time to discover. Thanks Jane :)
