Tristyn’s, Boris’ and Nicholas’ surprise presence in the living hall with candles on an apple strudel as my birthday cake….
And I got a pretty silver bracelet and chocolate fudge from Edinburgh as my birthday presents…
Thanks my friends…
It was dark when I went to bed and it was dark again when I woke up. I spent my day without knowing the date and time. Having breakfast at 4pm and dinner at midnight is fun.
It’s “cool” that my time is in a mess now.
“Life is not about counting the number of victories won, but the amount of time one takes to recover from a defeat.”
We often hear that people begin to not like birthdays as they grow older, unlike when they were kids and loved their birthdays. To grow is part of life, and some people dislike growing older because they might be so much more things in their life that are yet to be accomplished. If we could ever achieve things in life at a certain age then there is nothing to fear. It could be building a successful career, establishing good financial health, starting a family, earning friendship, gaining experience and increasing our knowledge. To age gracefully with meaning and purpose; it is then worth celebrating birthday.
Once, there was a career seminar in high school that was intended to help us choose the right path so we wouldn’t waste time. The speaker said that we should at least aim to obtain a pre-u level cert or diploma by 21. Well, I have gained my Diploma in Architecture Technology and on my way to obtain a degree in the next year. Guess I’m on track..
Suangyee’s prominent plan:
“ If I wish to get married by 27, then I should get a boyfriend by 24. I think that I will need at least 2 years dating relationship before deciding to give whole life commitment. And how if I dont get a strike and find the perfect one immediately, considering if the relationship might fail and I need time to find another one?
So… how many years left for me? Time flies…. OMG!!!”
It’s not so much the idea of getting married early, but more the the issue of raising kids.
I am not sure if I still think that way.
Anyway, I am content with my current status and don’t intend to find someone just because I want my prominent plan to work.
Going out for christmas dinner tonight…
The city is so dead now. All the shops are closed. Worse to worst, we’ll go back for maggi.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUANG YEE!!!
As Christmas is approaching, streets seem busier than usual. Working in the Christmas market has given me a closer perspective in which to experience the event. People walking with loads of bags can be seen everywhere; doing Christmas shopping, buying gifts….
Whilst in Malaysia, most people celebrate Christmas with major drinking and partying binges; Christmas in Europe is more a family event. Exchanging presents in Christmas is meaningful because the act of choosing presents makes us think about and consider for the people we care for. It’s time to look back at the moments that we had, to think if we’ve ever thought about what they like, what they thought, did and said. It is not so much about the materiality of the present, but the time and effort spent to show that we appreciate, care and love.
“Do you want onions on it?”
Some cooking and cleaning too.
1. Most old women prefer burnt onions.. really burnt.
2. Most kids don’t like onions. And they like either plain burger or plain cheese burger with KETCHUP.
And I began to enjoy the taste of onions.
I shall stay in the shower cubicle….
Hot shower is superb after a freezing day at work.
Yah, it’s small.. Shared bathroom with flatmates.
