Carpe Diem!

Posted in Holiday, Travels with tags , on August 17, 2011 by eleenpor

No words can do justice to the emotions coursing through my being now.

Maybe these pictures will…






Suddenly, my legs turn to jello when I think about what’s in the books tomorrow.

Asa Delta.

That’s Portuguese for hang-gliding.

They call me crazy for even thinking about it but heck, this is probably the only time I have the opportunity in this lifetime.

So, yeah.

I’m doing it.
I’m jumping off the mountain tomorrow.

And hopefully, I will live to tell the tale.

Carpe Diem!

Exploração de vida

Posted in Travels with tags , , on August 9, 2011 by eleenpor

Sure I can brave Asian countries where English is not their first language too (call me silly but I’ve always felt I have Asian immunity despite the cultural and language differences. LOL), sure I can explore strange places in the North of the USA or brave the dreadfully wet weather in London … but South America?

Never in my wildest dreams did I think that one day, I will find myself in South America.

That one day came a little too soon than I expected and surprisingly, I am having quite a ball exploring Life on the other, other side of the world.

Those of you who are on my FB list, you know what I mean.

This week, it’s Sao Paulo.
Next week, it’ll be Rio de Janeiro.
Next next week, it’ll be Buenos Aires.

Pix to be shared whenever I can (more over FB than here, sorry).

Stories to be shared in person. Or whenever I can get my dang new lappie to work for me to update this space.

Till my next update, tchau meu amigos. Sou de explorar a Vida!

Hiya folks.

There are actually 2 reasons why this space has not been updated much in the past few months.

1) Life

2) Tool

Reason #1 above isn’t really the main reason as I’ve always believed that if there’s a will, there will always be a way. In the past when Life intervenes, this space still gets updated.

So reason #2 is the real culprit.

Not making excuses but the new lappie at work is a real pain to blog from. WordPress just doesn’t get loaded properly and I spend time trying to maneuver my way around the page than actually writing.

In fact, I am writing from a friend’s MacBook now while my spanking new HP Elite Book is sitting in my backpack.

Nothing to do with the brand of the hardware but everything to do with the restrictions of my IT folks from my not-so-new office in Lion City. Bah.

There has been loads that I wanted to share but …

Anyway, will try to update this space as much as I can but at least you now know that I have not abandoned you.

Just … handicapped.

Loving Us

Posted in Uncategorized on July 31, 2011 by eleenpor

Strangely, it seemed harder this time.

Silent tears flowed involuntarily. I tried to wipe them away but the way he kept dropping butterfly kisses on my hand as he held on tight didn’t help at all!

No words were exchanged but they were not needed either. We knew what the other was thinking and feeling.


He peeked thru my hankie as I tried to furiously wipe the tears away. I looked at him and caught a wink. A small giggle escaped me.

I knew then that it will be alright. As long as we believe in us and continue to drive towards our dream, it will really be alright.

A day in Taipei

Posted in Travels with tags on July 27, 2011 by eleenpor

What a day today has been!

Glimpses of airports, minutes blending into hours, putting faces to names and voices, having multiple food O’s and just simply OD-ing on Life. Those of you who are in my FB friends list, you know what I mean.

Times like this, sleep is such a necessary evil.

But with this cutie waiting for me to bring him to bed, how can I resist?

Especially with a cute behind like this…

I think some bear-nap is in order. Seriously, can you blame me???

P/S – He is extrrrrrrremely huggable!

I can’t believe that it has been slightly more than a decade since I stepped foot here

Back then, it had a different name.  It was also a very boring place with nothing much to offer. Today, I am told it is a buzz of activities. Hopefully, my sources are right.

Here’s home for the next few days before I head back to Paradise Island for the weekend.

Looks fine, eh? 🙂

I surfed through their website and found this to be my favourite.

Note to self – Bring bikini!

Days packed with meetings and nights packed with fun, I wonder when there will be time to sleep???

Oh well. We will deal with it and go with the ride. Most importantly, turn everything into the adventure of a lifetime.
