LOOKING AT THE BRIGHTER SIDE

“A cloud does not know why it moves in just such a direction and in such a speed…It feels an impulsion…this is the place to go now. But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns behind the clouds, and you will know, too, when you lift yourself high enough to see beyond the horizons.” ~Richard Bach 

*The photos were taken from the tiny porch of our 10th floor appartment in Butterworth, Penang, Malaysia overlooking George Town in Penang Island. I frequently look at the sky immediately after arriving home from work and wait for dusk. There I see abundance of priceless blessings!

    Looking at all this view from our porch and enjoying the sea breeze, makes me relaxed and forget all worries.
    It’s really beautiful watching GOD’s creations. Very inspiring location.

    loved how the sky changes in each photo :)

  6. You have a fantastic view when you open your eyes in the morning and before you close them at night. Don’t rave about it to your landlord or he’ll increase your rent LOL.

    • haha! we’re lucky to rent our unit from a very nice and generous landlord.

      the lease goes for RM950 (PhP 13,300) monthly;fully furnished (3 air con units, 2 bedrooms, 2 toilets, 1 storage room, a little kitchen with hood, and a tiny laundry area) excluding utilities. ayos na din. you don’t get that view (like manila bay’s) on that price in manila.

  7. oh from a fellow skywatcher, i say these are spectacular. amazing how you can have this sightline when you’re in your balcony. i can imagine you enjoying the sky and the cloudsccape while having coffee. you don’t need to even leave your home to have this view. inggit.

    • spectacular? geez, thanks!
      you’ve been skywatching the globe, maria. now that’s one to be envious of! 😛

  10. Ganda naman! Buti ka pa may view na ganyan! Pader ang nakikita ko tumingin ako sa labas ng bintana ko! lol!
