Pun of the day:
I love to be showered in serainity when i go to sleep.
It’s been raining every night here.
I love it. :]
There are some people who prefer the solitude of silence and darkness when they lay themselves to sleep.
The only lullaby which can accompany them on their journey is the soothing sound of raindrops falling.
They fear distractions.
They dread rude awakenings.
I do know someone who can only fall asleep by being immersed in the liveliness of noise.
A jarring cacophony of sounds is needed to escort that someone to the land of dreams.
“I need to feel that there’re people around me”.
Perhaps, you’re just as insecure as i am.
When is the loneliest time of a day?
The moment the lights are turned off, and you’re waiting to be transported to your dreams.
Looking at all the discernible silhouettes in your room, you wait for your night ship in the darkness.
As a loner,
Even when you lie in somebody’s arms, you’ll still feel lonely.
Because that person will eventually fall asleep before you.
You will just watch quietly,
Staying still to avoid waking that person up.
I love it when the symphony of rain plays throughout the whole night.
Its soothing rhythm will fill the night sky even after i’m fast asleep.
Only the falling rain watches over me as i sleep.
raining doesn’t bother me much…..coz i’ve air-conditional in room….
the symphony of rain also never be a problem to me….coz my air-conditional is damn noisy as well…..
i hate it when i was having a great dream, while my stupid phone alarm scream (showing the night is over, it’s day time, working time, and hard time….)
Rain gives us the calm feeling, and after the rain the air is fresh and makes us mnore lively.
To me, rain washes the problems away and restarts my mind. It feels good to stare at the rain at times when I am frustrated or depressed.
Hate being jerked up in the morning though, would rather have something sweet wake me up. Like the smell of freshly prepared breakfast 🙂
Life’s Just Fun
Nick: I love rain. And breakfasts. =]
I love the sound of rain falling and especially as something to listen to at night. Its soothing on the ears 🙂 Don’t really like the sound of howling winds though… thats something which I can never sleep to or through.
As for lonliest time of the day being when the lights go out and watching the silhouettes, I agree but to combat that, think nice and happy thoughts/remember happy memories or maybe even have a night light on 🙂
I do envy those who once their head hits the pillow fall insatntly asleep!!
Porkie: I hate people who can fall asleep within 5sec. They leave me all alone. 🙁
Cheesie: me too..me too. seems you really need someone to keep you company and always stay awake until you drop off to sweet slumber 🙂
it is true the therapeutic sound of rain calms u down, it is almost like a lullaby, even the drums of distant thunder sounded like tender words from an old wise fren..as if telling u everything will be ok… just go to sleep and everything will be sunny again tomorrow.
sleep i shall, with my faithfull dream to accompany me, i wish i dont hv to part with my beautiful dreams but the sound of the busi street wake me up every morning. i hate the alarm clock. i hate having to come back to reality. i dont want to lose my dream.
it is just me.
ano ne mous: 你说的是针对我吗?
gosh.. I love rain too! there’s something so surreal about it… the sound of rain is especially comforting
‘plit plat plit plat’ is all i hear outside my window….
A soothing metronome of the beat of the rain as it beats on my window plane,
I watch my love fell asleep as i hold her close, i move my fingers gently down playing with her soft long hair, i smell her as i hear her purrrrrr……
I lay her head on her pillow, i cover her nakedness with my blanket as she squiggles to feel my warmth, I’ll miss u as u dream in ur world…. but when u awake…. i’ll be there to kiss u a good morning, darling. i miss u’
wow the literature side of cheese. no puns for once, except pun of the day..
yea! same here!
i just love it when it rains at night..
it’s oddly soothing and it cools the hot temperature down also..
promising a good night’s sleep..
Hm… there is something missing in this post. It look so naked. So naked without a pic!!!
I love the rain too Cheesie 🙂 But then again, not when its too heavy. Was driving in the rain and could not see a thing the other day! So, pros and cons 🙂
But I still love rain. Love breakfast? What’s your ideal breakfast like??
Life’s Just Fun
I am one kind of fall asleep in 5 seconds and straight to my dreamland!
Breakfast is the one sleep beside you! Munchy!
Nick: Anything with eggs and cheese. 😀 American style.
Rain is always preferable to hot sunny days with no cooling breeze. It’s also a hell of a lot more fun to have than idiot haze from Indonesia. For me the best time to rain is when I’m home from work and just about to go in the house.
Rain is the best for a sleep aid. (there has been no rain here in some time, no wonder I can’t get to sleep easy) If there is no rain, crickets fill the bill rather well for me. And there are no crickets either at this time of year.
Good thing I enjoy the quiet of the night – Always been a bit of an owl.
One. two.. Threee (Crunch)
Nothing like a tootsie roll pop… but terrible for breakfast.
Eggs and cheese rule! I Like mine with onions and green peppers. Lightly fried tomato is a good side.
Peace, Light, and Love to You All!!!
i love rain accompanied with some romantic slowjams. Make you wanna make love non stop. LOL. In The Rain (Keith Sweat), Let it Rain (Glenn Jones), The Rain (Syngnature) & Rain (SWV) is definitely the anthem for that!
Whats your rain anthems btw cheesie?
American style, seems that we Asians love American style breakfast 🙂
Once went to a hotel in Singapore, had their breakfast. Chef prepared Egg omellete with cheese. So delicious. Half-melt cheese nicely wrapped in a layer of egg. Yummy!
Cheesie … while you’re at the topic of deep emotion, I’d like to take this opportunity to share what happened to my cousin day before yesterday ……
I am very depressed with the state of security in our nation. When was the last time you read about a robbery or mugging case in the newspaper? When was the last time someone told you about their friends / family members got robbed?
Things happen. All the time. To anyone, anywhere. Please do not take things for granted, assuming that things only happen to ‘other’ people.
My cousin just got robbed, 2 days ago (7th Nov 2006) and she is now lying on a bed in Gleneagles Hospital. Let me describe her injuries … she suffered a concussion .. there’s blood clot in the head. Her collar bone was fractured in 3 locations and there’s cracks on her spine. Doctor says to let the blood clot dissolve slowly .. but we were kinda worried and will get second opinion elsewhere.
Usually, you get advices such as “don’t fight, let go of your belongings” which is true to a certain extent. In my cousin’s case, she wasn’t even given a chance to “let go” in the first place. The robber came from behind, knock her unconscious with God knows what weapon and grabbed her belongings. Then she was left unconscious and lying on the roadside. Fortunately, a lady noticed her and informed the security guard from a nearby shopping Mall and she was sent to the nearest clinic.
She is now stable, conscious and well although a little shaken up. She had a hard time remembering what happened or even why is she there in the first place, I am guessing the concussion must have affected her memory a little. But her memories are recovering slowly.
The moral of this event?
Please take care of your loved ones, in any way possible. For the guys, sacrifice a little time and effort … send or pick up your wife/gf in anyway possible. Trust me, those extra kilometres are worth the effort to protect your beloved. And for the ladies, I know you’re strong, independant … please be aware of your surroundings AT ALL TIMES. When you’re walking, don’t be on your mobile, chatting away … you’re most vulnerable at that time. You never know, sometimes … in that little short distance, things can happen. And some things can happen and affect your whole life.
As in my cousin’s case, I am praying for her … praying that there will be no after-effects from those injuries.
Please take care.
sorry to hear that, Timothy. wish she’ll get well soon~
everyone here will be praying for her~ 🙂
*pray* I hope your cousin recover fully!
petrol increases drastically but salary stays… enuf said…
Get well soon Timothy’s cousin…
Timothy: Cheese up! All the best to your cousin. 🙂
Will pass this along with prayers for a speedy recovery.
God Bless you in your time of need. +
I will ask my pastor for prayer and healing towards her. He is one of the best, and has brought back people from near death before in some amazing cases.
Timothy – Hope your cousin gets well soon. And curse those *&#^$((* mindless robbers. May they themselves be robbed and the same pain inflicted upon them!
Life’s Just Fine
Cheesie & every kind reader,
You people are so nice … making me feel real bad to use Cheesie’s blog to send this mesage. But thanks anyway, my cousin is recovering well … doctor says the blood clot in her head is small, he hopes it will dissolve slowly, we’re still getting second opinion just to be sure.
We’ve made police report .. guess what they said ? It’s common nowadays .. and just make sure don’t wear too sexy … sigh. What kind of response is that …..
tim…….wish your cuz well…….
half the authorities are sleeping……the other half is in denial……..so who to depend but ourselves?
Ringo…You have at least one loyal blog reader which is ONE THE ONLY ONE “MR. JOHN”
A loner remains a loner
Love this darling piece, awesome.
Dont wear too sexy? What does it gotta do with being robbed? Besides, just because a woman dressed up sexily, she is guilty for crime done upon her?
Ridiculous. No wonder they didnt get a pay rise. They just do not know how to say or negotiate things.
Once my friend got stopped by police for using hp in car. First thing police said “Mahu saya tolong?” My friend replied “Tolong cepat bagi saman.” Then policeman was pissed off and knowing sure cant cari makan warned him and rode off, without saman. SIgh..more police on the streets now, more duit kopi??
Life’s Just Fine
Lucky the IGP issued statement saying that there’ll be no roadblocks during festive seasons. otherwise this is the time when policemen would ritually set up roadblocks to collect “toll” from motorists……but i wonder how long this will last.
Cheesie…..nice piece……my inner feelings resonates well with that…….
Timothy – Don’t feel bad, you had something with which you wanted help with, and when you reach out: you may recieve in. Asked on my own for you and your cousin, plus passed the word for healing. This is no crime. Prayers work best when there is more intent.
Is that Dax, marks the spot? 🙂 ty +, for your “observation”
Nick – I agree, it is not the womens clothing. In this case it may only have been lack of money as she was “only” robbed. (thankfully, if painfully) But “sexy” clothing is no excuse for other non good intentions and lack of self control for others. Granted…self control can be rough, 🙂 but there is a line – that must not be crossed. One may push limits, but know limitations also.
Can you translate that “Mahu saya Tolong” and “Tolong cepat bagi saman” in english?
My ehm… what language is that anyway? Just curious…
john: “mahu saya tolong” means “need my help??” and “tolong cepat bagi saman” means “gimme a ticket (summon) quick, please”….its malay…..
Peace John. I might sound cruel but I curse people everytime they do inconsiderate things. Example is people simply throwing rubbish from their car to the roads or driving recklessly.
Sometimes I wish they would be “resting at a place where people can pray them”. At least they wont bring harm to others then.
Thanks sheon for the translation 🙂
nice post Cheesie !
u know i love heavy rains whenever im emo-ing
they bring me to my fantasyworld asap
nick & tim : at the rate they’re going…..in 5-10 years time….malay language will be very similar with english………for instance “keluarga” meant “family” 2 years ago…now its “famili”! so….no need to learn malay……hahahaha
all inconsiderate acts must be condemned! littering…..road hogging….traffic weaving…inconsiderate parking…..driving with hazard lights on…….mugging….bullying…. very sickening…..
sex-crimes have nothing to do with how a women dresses up! when girls in tudung, girls in school uniform, little kids in kiko outfits are also victims to the perverts, how does that statement hold true? if somehow that statement becomes law…..could i say i can rape a woman in bikini at a beach…and i will carry no guilt?
hunt all the sex-criminals down and let them rot behind bars!
Yes, thank you for the translation sheon! Not versed in many languages, but do have a talent for accents and learning to understand people quickly. Hmm, another idea… so many and so little time in the day!
“Looking at all the discernible silhouettes in your room, you wait for your night ship in the darkness.”
I Like this line… this is where Foghorn Leghorn, knows what to do.
Was saying how it had not rained here in awhile yesterday… well it went from mid 60’s and sunny yesterday to heavy rain, sleet, and now probably 2 inches of snow today. I had to open my mouth didnt I? lol!
NickLJF – Thank you also, peace to you. +
I definately can relate to your feelings there. Throwing garbage on the ground really gets me too. It is something I never do, anywhere.
For me it could be compared to an animal that drops where it eats. Same concept.
But, and this is not always easy to do at first… instead of being upset or sad like I get, hold those thoughts and ask for forgiveness for them. Also… picking it up after them can be satisfying.
This is a more positive way to effect the situation, for you – and them. First though, should be forgiving yourself – once you feel better (in time, or soon) asking on behalf for others is much easier. As for harm, it harms you when you see it and let it effect yourself.. But it harms them more, even if you don’t see it.
This is why it is good to ask forgiveness rather than put more on them. We were all put here for a reason, and to clutter the earth with trash is not that reason. No thing passes unnoticed by God. We are to be weightlifters, not burdens.
Just touching this topic has made me want to write more tonight… thank you again 🙂 I have written some on prayer, and various topics: most are lost in forums, papers over time.
More recently began in earnest to save my works in copy as I plan to write a book or two very soon.
Some rest a long time, but to go to sleep troubled – is to wake with a heavy heart.
Any way… -> Peace be upon You.
A very good comment there :). Maybe cursing is not the appropriate way. But if I am to go on picking their rubbish, trust me, in Malaysia, you would spend an eternity.
I do not refer to all, but a number of Malaysians are just….well unwilling to listen to others and are a selfish lot. IT IS JUST SO DIFFICULT TO EDUCATE THEM, EVEN ON COMMON SENSE. I am not perfect, but I believe I am better off than most.
Just how difficult it is to keep your own rubbish to yourself? ironically, they are the same bunch of people who gets upset when others throw rubbish into their territory, while they themselves are doing the same!
Beats me! 🙁
Ringo RULE the blog. John RULE the comments! Cheers!
I love sleeping in on rainy afternoons. 😀
Timothy: Sorry to hear about that. My area is pretty dangerous too, fortunately nothing like that has happened.
Nick – quote:

Yes, unfortunately it is a world wise/wide issue… but, that can be looked at a couple ways. 🙂
Anyhow – It is difficult to educate, one of the hardest things to do. but Common sense and some love go a long ways. Also a reason this world needs more teachers, of all kinds…
And, yes. It can be good, to be “off” – if it’s better!
