“You are a beautiful person, Doctor. Clearheaded. Strong. But you seem always to be dragging your heart along the ground. From now on, little by little, you must prepare yourself to face death. If you devote all of your future energy to living, you will not be able to die well. You must begin to shift gears, a little at a time. Living and dying are, in a sense, of equal value.”–Nimit in “Thailand”

Lost my voice to scream a lullaby.
If i were a musician singing on the street I would probably get stones thrown at me. I be my imaginary audience.
If I were on the street playing an instrument. A passerby or two, would stop to listen, that’s about it really.
Backburners, scattered cards. things that happen in the past, I believe you came for a reason, that’s to ruin me, to bring me down to tears and draw scars and bruised knees, but You picked me up and made me turn again.
Now reality is here, knowing it will be a pebble off the shoreline, worn down to a sediment in the sands, lost in the depths of Mariana’s Trench, washed up in the seashore by night. High, dry, beached in the burning sun.
Oh how cruel when everything is just a beautiful portrait of your disguise,
a facade that’s what it has been all along. Little did I know I have been deceived
to believe , that is so cruel and deceitful.
When I fade out from the forefront, how would I have wanted to be remembered?
Did I live the life meant to be for me? Heck, I could easily let my impetuous self go,
to hear the recalcitrant cold chill whispers, transcending goosebumps up my spine,
to let go of the rope that burns my hands. The struggle to live and hold on
to a hope for better days to come.
This is the Hyde of me.
Triggered by the past, fueled the burning chambers of sorrows and wounds.
A civil war bared and fated to my hands and from within me, a burden to bear.

On my personal note and how I’m coping with life…
I realized I’ve changed so much… And I find in this stage of my life, in fascination of learning more about who I am and what I am to be come.
I’ve so many things that I wanna do and achieve at work and out of work. My Career, Music, the bands, self improvement in my cooking, getting back into my fitness getting my room organized (which never happens), and hanging out and meeting new friends. serving in Church, food venturing and my deepest dreams.
It all bared down on me for the longest time that I should do something and this is the ultimate litmus test to get me to where I want me to be. I am at cross roads making major decisions now on where I want to be and with whom I want to share it with. I’ve been so blessed and touched by all the things that happened in my life since coming back from Bangkok, but now I need to hear the call and to make the right decisions to continue to move forward.
Right now I’ve got a lot on my mind on what I’ve to do next. I know after making this colossal of a decision, it is about moving on and not looking back, cause I know that God has a plan for me and it is up to me to make things happen, as nothing will happen if I do not move.
I know I probably sound emo right here… but I’m feeling anxious and excited at the same time to discover and wait for how I will paint my future.
I know here it may seem real vague on what I plan to do, so for those of you who want me to share my testimony and what I’m up to, lets talk and meet me in person over coffee and let me tell you. I’ve a plan to reach for the sky, I may not see them now, or I may just catch a glimps of the dream, but I know they are there hiding behind the clouds.

It’s been awhile…
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.
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!
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)
Yes its me… and I love food… as you can see…
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!
You are now lookin at the latest and confirmed ALPHA245 Brand Executive! : )
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…
