Sunday Walk with Neo Family and Stanchart Marathon Runners on 5th December 2010

Every sunday, we'd stuff ourselves with an eat-out breakfast and so we thought of talking a Sunday late afternoon post breakfast walk.

Little did we know we'd bump into Marathon runners that day on East Coast Park!

See rest of album here!

Hanging out with Sam and Dom

Sam is my brother-in-law and I hang out with him more nowadays because he and my sis is now living closer to us than before.

Geylang Serai as compared to previously at Bukit Panjang.

There was a recent session where I was introduced to their Nespresso machine.

I am an addict

Hi, My name is Franklin,
And I am an addict.

Before the addiction,
I was young, confident and assertive.
In the beginning,
It was always fun to try with friends.
Learning by mimicking.
I thought it was part of the process.
Process of becoming an adult.
Integrating to be part of society.

Soon it was no longer social.
The need to satisfy the habit was present,
Even when no one was around.
I thought I was in control.
To be able to choose when to give in,
And when to give up.
But in the end,
It was the habit that was in control.

Mood swings became evident as the habit grows.
The habit was brewing an alter-ego within myself.
Each decision became a chance,
For Jekyll and Hyde to argue.
I realized I was slowing changing.
Into the alter-ego born from the habit.

Each day I wake,
Praying to be sane and abstain.
But I was fighting a losing battle,
Mr Hyde will not suppress his hunger.

But starting from today,
Things will be different.
I will abstain,
And I shall suppress.
Any urges from within.
Because I no longer want to be associated
With the aftermath of giving in.
Starting from now,
I will say no.
And be assertive and confident about it this time.
Because precious time had been lost,
And will never be returned.

All I can do now,
Is to prevent myself from giving in.
To live each day with conviction.
My name is Franklin.
And I was an addict.
