Onions Makes me Cry

Posted by on Feb 3, 2013 in Community | 0 comments



Ten years ago, I helped a 7 year old boy escaped the hands of a cruel shop-owner. I was at the marketplace when I saw the small boy being dragged by the vendor.
He was caught stealing 2 onion heads, saying ” just saving all and will sell it when it’s just enough for a bundle, my siblings need bread to eat.”

Hearing his line crushed me, and I felt the knife slit my heart.

Paid a couple of kilos, begged the shop owner not to call the police, and let the boy go. His siblings needed him.

That moment still lingers in my senses; every time I hold an onion in my hand… it does make me cry.

The Simplicity of Men and the Complexity of Women

Today I thought he was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a cafe to have some coffee. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment.

Conversation wasn’t flowing so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet
so we could talk, he agreed but he kept quiet and absent.

I asked him what was wrong – he said, “Nothing.”I asked him if it was
my fault that he was upset. He said it had nothing to do with me and not to worry.

On the way home I told him that I loved him, he simply
smiled and kept driving. I can’t explain his behavior; I don’t know why
he didn’t say, “I love u, too.”

When we got home I felt as if I had lost him, as if he wanted nothing
to do with me anymore.

He just sat there and watched TV; he seemed distant and absent. Finally I decided to go to

About 10 minutes later he came to bed. I decided that I could not take
it anymore, so I decided to confront him with the
situation but he had fallen asleep. I started crying and cried until I
too fell asleep.

I don’t know what to do. I’m almost sure that his thoughts are with
someone else. My life is a disaster…

Those little annoying things

Posted by on Feb 1, 2013 in Community | 0 comments

There may be days that things around you doesn’t seem to appear like they used to be, the people around you pestering you for many issues in life ,and the little things like traffic, delayed bus,no ironed dress to wear annoys you to death that you find yourself starting your day really bad..

Somehow you managed to raise the chin and tell yourself ” everything will be alright”…smile at the mirror in front of you, rush to the front door, but bang your knee to the edge of the table and ruin your black stockings… ohhh!! what else is there to complete this bad day!!!

When you are a believer, you are thankful when these sort of things come your way… My granny calls it “saving grace” we call it God’s intervention…

For what???

These circumstances can evade you from accidents, or …. even worst, death!

Cheer up when you’re annoyed.. because it opens up to the realm of heavenly feeling – Patience- 🙂

~ I’ve learnt to accept things the way they are.. and it helped me realized that no matter what I do to reach perfection,peace & quiet, its the “noise” around me that makes life merry!!

Best Friends

Posted by on Feb 1, 2013 in Community | 0 comments

Choosing one’s best friend is the happiest yet hardest road to take. We all know that there are lots of things to be considered i.e. compatibility check, status background, solidarity, camaraderie, religious beliefs, Few of the many things I know, and a lot more.

Everyone has their own definition of what best friend is, and from time to time when ask about who is their best friend, a name will immediately come to picture. But is SHE? HE your true best friend?

Here at fayesbucket, we’ve gathered opinions of ladies and women out there, and our survey shows a very difference perspective.

Lady A : My best friend is my mom, unfailing love, never ending support.. she is my only ONE.

Lady B: I have this best friend since high school who still communicates with me, its been like a decade, so perhaps I can consider her my “best” of friends.

Lady C: the word best friend is not in my vocabulary. Best could become the worst!!! I can get along with others pretty well, but I don’t stick to that mediocre belief.

Lady D: My best friend is my life-partner! The comfort is extended beyond understanding.

So, I may define best friend to be the “one-good-friend” who is always ready to support, understand you, good times and bad times…

Let’s not forget that commitment is there, embracing a total stranger to label her as your best ( good) friend is something of the ordinary. So, let’s be truthful, not bias; considerate, not judgmental.

What about you???

“Lift that frown a little bit higher!”

This is how my dearest best friend tells me when my mood is already unmanageable.

How naïve is my thought that I fail to realize he just wanted me to smile.

Wow! I felt lighter and better.

Keep smilin’!


*dedicated to GB- happy bday!*
