2000 years ago, Baby Jesus was 1 day old...

(Am I crossing the line if I go all goo-goo-ga-ga nanny and say that Jesus must've been a cute baby and I won't mind pinching his cheeks?)

This is me after all the Christmas merry-making.
Red eyes with evidence of my hours of sleep, lying on the couch with a blanket burrowed around me- so much so that my parents both exclaimed their surprise when they saw my 'nest'- and where my sleepy body layeth thee.

But I must not forget to say that whilst I am exhausted, my heart is fit to burst.
I feel so loved this Christmas. So touched by all the small or big gestures my friends show to me.. What did I do to deserve all these?! Love you guys so much!

Spent the first hour of Christmas in Resort world with the 'rents and boy, what a beautiful way to start a beautiful day.
I don't know how people can stay so calm in a place like that because I was just in awe, I kept thinking if I flew to another country with cool breeze and beautiful lightings and gr8 customer service. I kept wanting to smile and take pictures of everything. I would have burst into a joyful song right there and then in front of the misty Universal globe if not for my apparent self-control. Yes I have self-control. Where does it go when I'm shopping??!?!?

Anyhoo hope you are enjoying the holidays and see you soon!
Here's a picture of me taking a picture and then not liking my face so much and thus covering it with florals as an attempt to be hip and kewlio. Obviously not working but it's okay you guys have a MERRY-CHRISTMAS-BOXING-DAY-27TH-28TH-29TH-30TH-31ST-&-HAPPY-NEW-YEAR!

Wow. My jaw dropped when I saw these pictures.
The amount of detail to the sequins and embellishments are stunning.
The whole parisian-glitter-walls-magic-carpet thing compliments the whole collection.
The clothes and decorations here are like my secret dream come true. It's almost like a Christmas present.. I'm drooling all over my laptop, it's embarrassing.
No words for Karl except to slow down my fast beating heart.
Chanel does it yet again.

It's Christmas, darling!

So I wore a flora bustier over a black maxi that I cut the sides of, looking a mix of Chinese New Year Qipao and those people who wear corsets. Forgot what they're called.

We went prawning one night and it was fun! Develops your patience and let's you bond over food and murky water and wiggling prawns with giant claws. Brave Xiao mei! Haha let's go back on 1st Jan for that promotion!

Candle light service was beautiful. Blow out the light because now that light shines in you when Jesus came down 2000 years ago on 25th dec!

Pizza hut afterwards where we ate pizza hut! Not making much sense here haha but we played truth or dare! I should stop whipping out my phone to play truth or dare.

Met the girls to go for lunch @ manhattan fish market but b4 that we were lucky enough to catch the free sticky's demonstration and got free candy :D
I like how sticky's is never too sweet.. You can just eat the whole thing in one go!

Family gathering Christmas party thing at night! It was fun catching up with everyone again!
Gr8 family I have here. And oh I have bboy cousins! YES I CAN NOW LEARN HOW TO BREAK DANCE, SUCKERS! I'll wait for my cousin to teach me the proper way b4 I start breaking other things (the lamp or my neck)

So this holiday I've spent the 2 days holed up at home, dancing and singing out the window, messaging people, watching too much tv programs with my parents, ordering food from mac delivery, doing some work that ought to be done, surfed a lot of net, did some christmas stuff, forgot to wash my hair, forgot to sleep, forgot to wash some clothes. Hey, gimme a break, Christmas is coming! Doesn't give me a reason to be lazy, does it? Okay I repent. I shall do some sit-ups then down a tub of ben&jerry's my mom just brought home.

What? Stop looking at me like that.

They're only a tub of mini ben&jerry's *defensive*
And oooh! My mom's colleague just baked her a batch of sugar biscuits!
Om nom nom no- fiiiine I'll go jogging with Marquis tonight.

How ironic that I'm rather particular about privacy and still I'm on facebook.
I've already minimized my public contact info and still people take that and abuse it.
Must I private my photos and wall post too?!?! Gosh.

How ironic that I'm rather particular about privacy and here I am, blogging my heart out.

Harry Potter!

(random images from tumblr)

Me: Hey omg harry potter is almost gone from the cinemas let's go watch it i have to watch it b4 it goes away come on shawn there's a 9.20pm show at cck we can go watch it, wanna go watch it???
Shawn: Huh?
Me: Okay let's go!

So it was a pretty last minute decision to watch harry potter one night because realization hit me that the movie was gonna stop playing soon and I was determined to watch it on the big screen so I got Shawn along to watch with me and he so nicely agreed and my dad drove us down to watch.
Later in the movie theatre I was excited that I'm finally watching harry potter and I asked Shawn,

Me: So you watched the other harry potter movies right? Like the 5th and 6th?
Shawn: No..
Me: Oh no, so you don't know the story line of what's gonna happen in the movie??
Shawn: No, but you wanna watch so I just come ah.
Me: *feeling bad* Okay.. Dumbledore died already.

Omg I'm such a bossy sis and Shawn's so awesome brother man. Ezekiel too but he's in army so can't force him to watch chick flicks with me heh.
I liked this new harry potter thing though it was way different from the other movies but growing up is always a change and this movie showed that change!
Can't wait for PART 2!

Just sayin'

Romance went that way, down the dark dripping cave.

Just watched Easy A and I can relate to it in a very odd way?
Which is why I'm probably feeling indignant about the (lack of) romance and chivalry this world has today. Not complaining- before you say I have high expectations- but I kinda wished the world now was like the old days where things were more cherished rather than be so casual online. Letters, flowers, chocolates, love song, jumping down wells together...
Which is why I am not romantically involved now, because then we'd either have to jump wells (you jump, I jump) or jump into the ocean (titanic) and no one wants that, nuh-uh. Haha. Note: that was a joke. But sure, bring your swimsuit just in case ;)

Or maybe it's just me.
I see girls around me in relationships and they are happy!

Although, guys (if there are any dudes reading my blog), a little romance never killed nobody.
And the ladies say amen? Hehe
To end off with a last attempt of being cool and witty, I shall say:

'And that's how Sue, sees it.'

Forget you- Glee with Gwyneth Paltrow

Such a feel good song, don't ya think?
& so cute that the clean version of this song is 'forget you' haha it doesn't fit but yet makes sense too. I've been humming to this tune ever since I heard it.
I don't particularly enjoy WISP class because I feel like I'm just repeating whatever I've learned from 4 years of literature class in secondary school. 4 years of discrimination essays are enough to make anyone hate discrimination. And writing more discrimination essays, for that matter. Maybe they should let racist people write for 4 years on the topic of racial discrimination and then they'll get over it too. I mean, I guess I know about the world more or less and google is just a click away.. so news is always at our fingertips.
Okay less complaining, more work uh. But this will be one of the only instances where I will use my newfound knowledge to sing:
'WISP, forget youuuuu~ woo woo woooo'

Through a veil


Loving the contrast between the feminine tulle dress and veils and the tough hardware harnesses!
I love juxtaposition of themes and fabrics to switch up an outfit or a mood.
Chiffon with crushed velvet, or plaid with jersey, or silk with leather...
So many possibilities.

Again, this scenery makes me wanna go abroad and lie in the green pastures to watch the sun set. But of course I've better things to do than to daydream.
Although if I close my eyes and let the sunlight shine on me, I might allow myself 5 mins to dream of all the possibilities and how the uncut grass would tickle my shins and how my dress might get stuck a few times as I walk in the wild field and how the wind would smell and how-
oh, 5 mins up.

Okay okay back to work!

Writing from the heart.

One secret I'll let you in on.
One that's been keeping me alive this far.
One thing that sustains me when I'm at my wit's end.
One reminder when I get bad days and bad moods.
One precious important thing that keeps me going even when I feel like giving up, and especially when I feel so tired that I can't give or love or it seems that time won't heal things.

Here it is:
I have my own source of love that never runs out.

Never ever runs out.
I may forget to look there when I'm all overwhelmed in my situations but it's always there for me.

And how can I let you in on my secret without telling you how to, too?

You have your own source of love, you know.
In that space in your heart where God is.
God is love, and so you'll find love when you find God.
Dig deep, it may be hard finding it first when you're hurting but you will find it.
A love so real and so tangible. A love that gives you strength after you get weary. A love that encourages you after you face disappointments. A love that clears the dark.

It pains me seeing people so down and out.
I wish I could hug every single one of them.
I wish the love I have from God can gush out of me and reach out to them.
But sometimes it's best that they discover their own supply of never-ending love so they will always have it.. for I may not be able to help every single one of them and I won't always be here but that love? It will always be.


(click on pic for bigger view)

Also I saw on a website some pretty funny but honest facts that make you go : 'Soo darn right!'

1. I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren’t going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? **** it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voice mail. What did you do after I didn’t answer? Drop the phone and run away?

25. How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or understand a word they said?

Last one that is the most omg-so-true thing:

32. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey – but I’d bet my bottom dollar everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

Something about love...

How long does it take for you to fall in love?

Some people swear that it's a gradual process of finding out about someone and growing fonder and somewhere along the line, chemistry comes into play.
Yet some scientist insists that it only takes 1 fifth of a second to fall in love! (And we all thought we were deeper than that)

Well I'm not sure about the falling in love part yet and shall not pretend to be an expert, lest you waste time reading my blogpost thinking I might provide you answers to love.

One thing though, that I've discovered is something so shockingly simple and honest and quite common-sensical (did you realize that if you're using those dictionaries online that correct you as you type, the moment you put a '-' in the middle of a made-up word like commonsensical, it becomes a normal word! Oh wait, is there such a word as commonsensical in the first place? I thought I just made that up. *shrugs*) about a truth fact moral base of any starting relationships and all that woo-ha:

Being in a relationship won't make you any happier if you weren't happy to begin with.

Happiness begins from within and yes, being in relationships might give you a temporary high but if you were sad to begin with, being in a relationship is not really going to help after a while. Because then you will start relying on the person in the relationship to make you happy and all sorts of expectations will arise and come on, we're but humans and not perfect and so, disappointment might come and then stormy seas and rocky road for the relationship and you get all angry.

When this revelation came to me, I was so caught off-guard, I just sat there. Then I went nodding my head and going 'hmmmmm' because people tend to think oh if only I'm with this person or that person or in a relationship and then I will finally be happy but no, you gotta be happy with yourself and your life first before the relationship begins!

Now go out there with this nugget of wisdom and love yourself and love your partner and be truly happy :)

The Row

Love seeing 'behind the scenes footages' because it is there that you see the magic and inspiration and creation taking place. Mary Kate and Ashley are such style icons and the work they're doing in The Row is looking awesome.

Sunday, October 17, 2010

Oh I'm running to Your arms

Hands lifted up in worship and praise
As all surrender to Your glorious name

I close my eyes and I see the light
a Man in white, shining so bright

I get up from the sunken ground
brushed off the chains that held me down

Like a child taking her first step
I walked, I ran, I jumped, I leaped

Leaped right into my Daddy's arms
Outstretched to catch before any harm

An embrace so heart-wrenchingly tight
All worries all troubles all lost from sight

As He whispered gently in my ear
'Perfect love casts out all fear'

A warmth that reaches to the tips of my toes
I know and I know that I'm not alone.

This embrace I will always remember
for times when life can get oh so bitter

For moments like this may not be often
a gift like this will not be forgotten

So this is to lift you up, my friend
If you feel like sometimes no one is there

Read this and know
you will experience his love.. so, or in other ways He'll go
to touch your heart and melt it like snow

May His love fill you up again
like in the song 'Forever Reign'

The riches of Your love will always be enough
So smile and laugh and jump for joy!

God bless you, oh beloved
and have a gr8 week ahead, brethren! XO

Brings security to the next level ;)

Edit: See, even Balmain's new collection has lotsa safety pins in 'em like this awesome jacket! (click to enlarge) I get very excited when I flow with designers hahaha
like just today, I was browsing through old runway photos and I saw a couple of designs and thought : Hey that's what Sonia Rykiel would do...
& click click click voila! The designer's collection IS Sonia Rykiel's!
And this happened a few times with other designers!
I know it's no biggie but it's my sense of satisfaction since it's something I love...

So what happens if you were to be born with the smaller genetics in you that enables you to only grow up to this tall and get muscles up to this big (read: not very big) and what, with the world so full of crazy people, you're not really able to defend yourself in times of trouble, aye?
Have you enrolled into the next martial arts class, ready to learn how to kick some ass, only to find out that it only gives you extra bruises?
Have you bought a big fierce scary dog to protect you, only to find out that you can't bring him everywhere?
Here's why you need this top!
It holds up to 30 safety pins on each sleeve (so that's 60 safety pins in total, folks!) and you can wear it anywhereeeee
So never worry or put a frown on your face because if you've got pants that just split, or a dress that just ripped or a weirdo trying funny business with you- this top will save the day!
Call now to purchase your first safety top and get an additional free safety pin just for free!!!
