Feeling Nostalgic for Childhood

We have lots of stories about the good old days to tell. Some good moments might not be that long time ago, but interwoven with nostalgia...

I love having party with myself in my room here. I had a memorable selfie New Year’s eve celebration with my homemade pasta and a cup of coffee.  After New Year’s day I watched my favourite British television series inspired by Jaqueline Willson’s children novel (I had watched them many times). And then yesterday was Thai National Children’s Day and I saw lots of my Thai friends changed their profile pictures into the theme of childhood moments. I missed my childhood too but it was not Children’s day in England, so guess what did I do?

Well, when I realize that I am physically isolated from my hometown, I like to have adventure through pictures of the good old days.

I kept them in my lovely drive which it has privilege to travel around the world with me. I looked through lots of old pictures and videos with hope that I can bring little cheerful moment onto my Facebook’s timeline. In the end I just posted a few of them...

Come and play with me!

Well, that was absolutely not my drawing, but just a snapshot from an academic book I recently found in University’s library. The author writes on how play and friendships are important for children to learn about society and grow up.

I don’t have that kind of pictures from my childhood. I just don’t find them.

When I think of my fun moments in children, I better say all those memories happened in my private corner. All that fun time to play computer in my room and chat with friends all day all night! 

Rainbow's room at the age of 12.

I used to be online all the time (not really different from now, isn’t it?). This picture reminds me of great adventure into online world, and I used to write novel fiction online as well. I could search for everything that I wanted to know, and be at any place I wanted to be just in the virtual world. I talked with different weird people that I will never meet in real life. 

When I was a child I wanted to be a pianist

Actually I wanted to be so many things as a child. From a doctor, a nurse, a vet, a teacher, then a musician, and when I was 10 I realized that I enjoyed writing. I used to write a lot about trips with my family. I dreamed to travel around the world!

And now that I am in London. God brought be far beyond imaginations I ever had.

Rainbow, 20 (turning 21 this year) at a park and she was showing her coat lol.

I just found this great place to exercise. There are not a lot of people here but I am happy to release all imaginations while spending the moment alone. It was great to take a break from my computer and online world. 


I own this playground :) hehehe

Watch dogs.

I smell coffee beans and biscuits from the cafe at this park.

The fact that I am addicted to coffee is one difference from my childhood. I need coffee everyday just at least two cups a day then I can survive.

It helps me to bring out insights within my souls when doing school projects. It lets me release my imaginations. Cheers!

Me at Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park January 2014 

Hey, there you see that actually I don’t really change much. I am still not old though haha. My life has long way to go, and I pick good moments from the past to remind myself that.. life is made up of the on-going stories.

There are remarkable moments that make us today. We can write autobiographies of our lives, shall we?

So I want to end my post in Rainbow’s traditional way. I picked my favourite song from Sunday school. It will be our reminder that the light that God put on our lives from childhood to this moment is valuable.

This little light of mine I’m gonna let it shine : )
Everywhere I go I’m gonna let it shine!
