Fast track to the present! Part 1

It’s been awhile…

OKAY.

IT’s been a LLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNGGGGGGG time since I last blogged! I can even hear imaginary echoes in my dusty old blog.. I even start to think that “Diary of Danny” is so weird now, it definitely needs a major switch up in here!

See… I got distracted and just spent 15 mins playing on the guitar and forsaken this poor poor blog… sigh…

Hmm… So what have I been up to lately….

So lots of stuff has been happening since my last blog post on Sept 11, last year.

I’ve been so busy with getting used to the working life since I graduated. It still seems so surreal even till now that my uni and highschool days are over even tho they feel strangely like they all happened recently.

I liked the fact that my work place feels like another haven, a whole big and awesome Alpha family that I see every weekday, work with, have great lunches and conversations with and people that I can count on and be part of a team that make things work! It is definitely such a blessing to have colleagues like these, whom I’ve learnt so much from the past 6 months that I’ve been here, and everything went by so fast, and to me, I feel that I’ve known them longer than reality, that I can even have the privilege to call them my friends.

Alpha 245 - Christmas 2011

Yes we are indeed a crazy, wacky, funfilled, never ending energizer family. And that’s me in the bottom right of the photo (above), with my long hair. Now I’ve a total different hair do totally!

 

AHM 2012

Well here you go (See above)! Short and more presentable I feel for work and anywhere. I feel good as well cause I’ve never had a satisfied hair cut ever in my life, this is pretty close to what I was looking for. So for those of you who didn’t know, that’s why I just kept my hair long, since I can’t get the hair cut that I want.

But fret not! I’m still the same Danny 😀 Seee…. (pict below)

Alpha gatherings

Yes its me… and I love food… as you can see…

 

Comic of Me

As you can see…. this comic above was made by my Alpha Boss. D: So yes… I’ve developed to be a character in a non-fiction comic! Crazy Alpha team!

Btw! I’ve also just finished my 6 months probation period at Alpha as of 15th Feb!

 

Confirmation

You are now lookin at the latest and confirmed ALPHA245 Brand Executive! : )

Yeah! Like a boss! P :

Hahah!

So that is a summary of my work life, I was really hoping for an increment, not now,  but I know that I’m not to worry as He has surprises in stored for me, as I know that I gain everything thru Him when I place Him first. I  really have to thank God for the doors He opened in my life and how He showed me that I can be who I’m today, a molded and changed person for the better, from me being who I was in the past, today and what He holds for me in the days to come.

I guess this is a cause of celebration that I’m now a permanent Burnetter and a proud Alpha245 BE.

For those of you who may not know yet…

I tweet @danRFTS and meet digital faces here.

The rabbit hole

was watching Alice in wonderland Cartoon version from the 1950s earlier today…

coming back to Malaysia is my Rabbit Hole… and I want to get out of it…. I have have been pondering this thought that I will never be able to settle down properly after leaving my good friends, stayed overseas in my “home” country… since touching down back to Malaysia… 5 years ago…

Till today.. i still feel like a Foreigner in my country of citizenship.. I guess it’s my passport ,the skin, the blood and that says i am a Malaysian… while my heart, my soul never really felt that way.. it was never settled..

Feels like i am homesick away from home…

Feels like I am all alone here…. Guess I can’t relate to anyone here… or share my deepest thoughts to… even to my family.. I know my God is there to be my comforter, my friend, my father in heaven, my friend, but I guess I don’t have that closeness with anyone here since 5 years back…

No doubt I meet new people and have new friends but friendship takes time to build… and I feel dis-attached

I feel like an outcast…Feels like I am going crazy…

My mix feelings for people has grown and I am developing Punch-Drunk emotions all the time….

When things don’t happen the way it was planned, false promises…

Is there something wrong with me??? Why don’t I get the same respect?

Seriously I am tired of people telling me “maybe” when what they meant was
“I will wait to see if my other friends has something better and more fun offers to do” or just “plain I don’t want to go. Just tell me straight so that i don’t have to waste time to feel this way and get last minute cancellations and false hope…

I guess I don’t get the commitments I deserve when I give so much of my time… I guess I over expect things and become disappointed in the end.

I have feelings that I want to express to the person I admire and a person who I got to know and care so much for in this short time I got to know her… but I can’t. Things run through my mind. I get jealous that you hang out with others more… I get sick of not being able to talk to you, I get pissed off that in the end i am just being used… not for real, as I have been warned that you are poison… which I’ve tried to ignore countless of times cause I hoped and believed that it was not true…

I make time for you, I deferred my plans and arrangements for you . I guess I do not have the courage to tell you how I feel about you.Fear that you don’t feel the same way? I do …

You consume my thoughts and mind.Thoughts of us spending time together..Your hair, your beauty, your smile, your voice,  your imperfectness, my memories and I guess I am not good at showing, expressing and telling you my feelings…

As the date of my departure comes closer.. All the more I don’t know… For this short time we know each other… I feel more that I need you like a addict to a drug…

I guess it’s never wrong that I have had to come back as I have had wonderful and also the most lowest and worst experiences of my life… to have to lose Torrie… It’s all in God’s plan i guess… as I am reminded of His perfect plan for my life..It is a turbulent roller coaster ride…and my personality and though have changeand grown… to be the person I am today…

How far does this Punch-Drunkedness go? How deep has the rabbit hole gone? I don’t know… I just want it to stop… and get away…

We ate at Groovy groovy Sushi Groove… Actually compared to the last time i went to Sushi Groove (over 2 years ago!), the quality of the food was much better than last time and now they are having promotion on 50%off on selected items and the food was of satisfactory level! Nothing much to shout about its just honest, decent food at a good price!

After eating we headed straight for the movie that we have been dying to watch!

Confessions!

Confessions!

I must say Confessions of A shopaholic from the movie and the book is so  erm different (as per normal with movies nowadays.. I call it the Harry Potter effect). Ok.. the book Confessions of A Shopaholic is the first book in a 5 part collection series of Rebecca Bloomwood’s life. The movie showed from the first book to the 3rd or 4th book compressed in a one hour and a half film! I tell you! The movie was very speedy! The small little details from the first book and second are all like.. not existant in the movie! And actually she only meets the editor of the Savings magazine on the 3rd book! That was how compressed the movie was!

But on a lighter note. For those who have not read the book.. I would say that it was a fun and entertaining movie.. well so are all chick flicks!  It was really good and there were lots of ‘oooo’, ‘Ahh’ and other expressions from the audiences in the movie theatre.

Here are the quotes that I love from the movie:

I can’t find the quote to my favourite line in the movie. It is when Rebecca Bloomwood was at one her first meeting at the Shopaholic Anonymous where she just describesthe feeling of shopping! I was like drulling and like going crazy in my heart like I wanna explode! 😀

“When I was 7 most of my friends stopped believing in magic. That’s when I first started. They were beautiful, they were happy. They didn’t even need any money, they had magic cards.”

“You know that thing when you see someone cute and he smiles and your heart kind of goes like warm butter sliding down hot toast? Well that’s what it’s like when I see a store. Only it’s better.”

“We all have a destiny in life and since 14 I knew I was put on this earth to shop.”

“I’m Rebecca Bloomwoodand I’m a shopaholic.”

I’ve made so many mistakes and I feel like taking this job would be another one.”

“When I shop the world gets better, the world is better; and then it’s not anymore and I have to do it again.”

I just loved those quotes! I was like going to stand up and run out of the cinema and head straight to Zara! LOL!

THere will definately be a sequel to the movie haha! There are more to the series! (hints: think.. marriage, babies?) Oops! hehe…

My rating : 6/10

After the movie, us three went to Zara straight to have a look at their SALE, pity its only the lady’s stuff having the major mark downs.. I kinda won’t be surprised if saw a mob of ladies lining up in waiting to enter the sale and grab and fight over the clothes just like in Shopaholic hehe… I saw a really nice pair of sneakers in Zara.. maybe getting my new pair soon! My converse is in a mess!

Music! This ain’t a Scene!

Opportunities are coming. I have been waiting for the chance to finally play in a band for ever since coming back from overseas.. which was 3 years ago! Worship team is different from this dream. This is my passion. My destiny. My call.

I have always love to perform on stage. Not to show off what I can do. But its the songs that I play that will express my inner being and also an outlet for me to compete against myself and also to be criticized at.

Yes to be criticized constructively is good cause so that any mistakes and also anything I did not notice, I get feedback and I improve and be better than what I am .

A new scene is coming and I am preparing.
