let’s eat in Xi’an, China

Well not that I guess what happened in Xi’an won’t stay in Xi’an… and this time I would like to share about the food we had eaten … People proposed us to at least try to eat their most known noodles and hot pot. There are plenty of restaurant, + a brief demonstration on how noodles are pulled (hand-pulled noodles). We were stucked in the city We did a lot of walk and ended up in muslim district for lunch. As we were walking along the busy street, street foods are everywhere and annoying motor riders are appearing unexpectedly. Bbq’s, noodles, bread, candies and etc .. staring on those bbq’s have totally given us mouth watering and without hesitation we had chosen and picked 8 sticks of Mutton bbq, one bread and two plate of rice with chicken and the most awaiting lunch been served and then voila we then had a feast. Over above we found the authentic roasted duck just in our hotel.

Take me to church

Hozier

I was inside the plane when I came across to see and watched the documentary about ”Sergei Polunin “ I am a frustrated classic listener, the older I get the more I love classical music and royal ballet dance. I remember at my young age I used to watched Ukrainian Royal ballet dance on TV. It’s been a long time I have not watched ballet dance or even going in theaters or Opera to attend and see classical concert. The last concert I had attented was in Arsenal Metz in France. It was the most beautiful concert I have ever seen in my whole entire life, and my VIP tickets was given free from a very good friend of mine. That was year 2010.
I couldn’t remember when was the exact year when Sergei Polunin made a video titled « take me to church » sang by Hozier and first time I heard and seen through facebook year 2013. First time I heard the song I already love it even before I understood what it meant.
I would really love to share the lyrics and I want to understand, that there is something profound about the song.
Take me to church – sang by Hozier. Hozier is an Irish musician, singer and a song writer. He was known in his best piece titled -take me to church-. I think Hozier is a brilliant person.

The lyrics goes like this :

Take me to church by Hozier

My lover’s got humour
She’s the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody’s disapproval
I should’ve worshipped her sooner
If the heavens ever did speak
She’s the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week
“We were born sick”
You heard them say it
My church offers no absolutes
She tells me, “Worship in the bedroom”
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well
A-amen, amen, amen

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins, so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins, so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I’m a pagan of the good times
My lover’s the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice
Drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That’s a fine-looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We’ve a lot of starving faithful
That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins, so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins, so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

No masters or kings when the ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human
Only then I am clean
Oh, oh, amen, amen, amen

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins, and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life
Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins, and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

So there is it …. I admit that I am not really good in expressing my thoughts and feelings. It just that , The lyrics makes me think…. it’s amazingly written.

I hope you realise

3890445C-44DA-405F-832D-AF997F7F240C.jpegMaybe, just maybe, While you have been thinking about yourself and your own feelings, instead of negatively judging me Because you didn’t get what you want from me… I hope you realise I do not walk on this planet to please everybody. I hope you realise that we are all humans and there is no perfection in this World only GOD.

Unpleasant message

What would you do when someone sent you an unpleasant text or message ?
Well, It happened to me.
but I know it is part of human nature and I believe that some people are just careless. People may say everything they want because they feel very good about it. As much as possible, I don’t let myself get affected especially if that person is not that really important in my life. And yes, believe it or not I have ability reading people, their ulterior motives can’t scape from me. If they think they can fool me well they are very wrong. In the first place, I already know and expected it , I already know their ulterior motives , wether it is genuine or not. Just because someone is showing you how nice they are doesn’t mean You have to be nice to them. True colors will always show. That is why I never expect anything , good or bad from anyone.
Yes you can say anything to anyone. But words are just words and in the end of the day they will remain words. When someone is trying to bring you down with their hurtful words don’t ever stoop to their level. In some called situations we have the right to be angry. But we should always keep ourselves in check. People might hurt us but that isn’t enough reason to also sink to their level and hurt people back. Always follow your heart and don’t give them a chance to destroy your day because what you allow will always continue. Live your life , some people will always find something negative to say and that is alright. Life is really too short to be controlled by anybody. I just want to thank them really for I am the center of their life. I don’t worry about what other may think and say. I am free and I am happy.

There is a saying and it goes something like this :

Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him In other words Never argue with an IDIOT.
