Don’t Think Too Much

I was born a thinker.

I was born a wonderer.

Curiosity always got the better of me.

And questions about everything I see, feel, touch, hear, smell and taste cannot stop running through my mind.

Even in my deepest sleep.

I tell myself, “Quit thinking too much!”

But to no avail does my inquisitive soul adhere.

I’m going to go insane if you take this pen away from me.

I need to get all these thoughts out in black and white.

Give back the pen or receive all these inner turmoil in its tangible form.

Don’t think too much!

That I just cannot stop doing!


These Words – Natasha Bedingfield

This is one of my all-time favorite songs! I fondly recall those childhood days in Wewak, East Sepik Province belting out this tune at the top of my voice and chasing my younger brother Perez to sing to him and kiss him and hug him and dance circles around him! The minute i start singing he’s running for his life… ah… male ego! He had it coming even at an early age! Just kidding 🙂 So whenever I sing this song today, it brings back those precious memories of childhood and fun in the sun on Wewak’s beautiful beaches!

Here’s the lyrics to the Song…


Fools Rush In (1997 film)


This was one of my most favorite Romantic Comedy and still is to this day ❤

Two relative strangers try to turn a one night stand into a marriage in this romantic comedy. Alex Whitman (Matthew Perry) is a designer from New York City who is sent to Las Vegas to supervise the construction of a nightclub that his firm has been hired to build. Alex is a straight-laced WASP-ish type who, while enjoying a night on the town, meets Isabel Fuentes (Salma Hayek), a free-spirited Mexican-American photographer. Alex and Isabel are overtaken by lust at first sight and end up spending the night together; however, their immediate attraction doesn’t last in the cold light of day, and they don’t see each other for another three months. When they do meet again, it’s because Isabel has some interesting news for Alex: she’s pregnant with his child. Alex and Isabel decide that they should do the right thing and quickly get married (with an Elvis impersonator serving as witness), but after Isabel meets Alex’s mom (Jill Clayburgh), and Alex is confronted by Isabel’s father (Tomas Milian), both start to wonder if “doing the right thing” was just that, especially as Alex tries to balance his career in New York with Isabel’s desire to continue working in Nevada.
