Spending a solid half hour in our favorite nonsense shop (Typo), going to H&M and finding them animal hats the only things we liked, yummy Ichiban Boshi for dinner and a bright parade of pimped-out rides after-hours.

i hate people who are too shy to say no out of fear of 'hurting your feelings' or whatever reason they have. i could write a whole article about WHY you MUST say NO at certain points in your life, but you probably won't learn as much from that as when you actually say no in real life.

seriously, people. don't be shy to say no.

4 things

Being born into a christian family doesn't make you a christian or gives you a free pass to heaven.

Going to church every Sunday is not a sign that you're a 'good christian'. What you do from Monday to Saturday speaks louder than your church attendance! (Oh gosh, that is so talking to me :/)

Religion is a sensitive issue. As long as sensationalism and narrow-mindedness prevail, the truth will be obscured by personal opinions and experiences - a very biased view that contributes nothing to the search or questioning of truth!

Words may be powerful, but the presence of God speaks where words fail. Woohoo!

a prayer

"help me to fight for joy in you alone. help me to continually fight the urge to indulge in the flesh. help me to do all things with love. help me to love those who are hard to love. help me to continue to see the best in people. help me to stay strong. help me to be a light in the darkness and help me to work my hardest in everything because you are my sustainer and my keeper and because you make living, dancing, breathing and building relationships worth it."

She just speaks what her heart says, which is what I resonate too!

The first song I've heard in months that I like from the first listen!

This week in bullet point form - Oct, week 2

  • PMR
  • I read The Hunger Games. Such a good read!
  • FB comments now display FB chat emoticons. 
  • I like the plain black heart over the new pink one!
  • (^^^) the symbol for jaws. try it!
  • work this week was very very weird. it felt like i stepped into monday, slipped and tumbled down a hole and emerged on friday.
  • today i thought "what if i could do everything i wanted to do?"
    • but i can.
    • "Age considers, youth ventures"
    • but (enthusiasm for) entrepreneurism (with lack of planning) is overrated!
  • i hope your week has been great because i prayed for you this week :)

Me: "...Looper at 6.45pm,"
Aidee: "What, you forgot it was at 6.45pm?"


Movie ini bagus ditengok. Time travel vs. Space travel (Inception), I think the former is more complicated because timelines are totally warped if one thing affects the other. Like, if Seth's body parts were cut up in the present, how did his future come back as a whole man? If present Seth's body parts were cut up, how does he grow to be old without those body parts, you know?  

I found this interesting Looper timeline infographic, might help to explain a bit:

Mum and I agreed that there was too much make up on JGL. Aging make-up lah, you know. 
At some parts, especially towards the end, his look reminded me of this ridiculous dog I saw on pinterest: 


Okay have another great October week ladies and gentlemen.

Friday, October 5, 2012


I want to:
Watch Dredd
Buy Babel or The Second Law
Write in my journal 
Cook crockpot mac and cheese and serve affogatto to my friends
Get ombré hair

I'm really tired today. The digital team went out for a very fun (for me, at least) store launch that involved gorgeous blooms, pretty products and super cute confectionaries. Then in the evening I went for practice and now I'm pooped but I can't sleep yet because my hair is still wet and I used hair shampoo samples that smells awesome and a new body scrub that felt great and I also used my regular oat and honey scrub from the body shop. Weekly ritual.

songs that remind me of being a kid

Out of the blue one day, Sherene asked me what makes me think back about the past. Is it sight, smell or something else? For her, she works by her sense of smell. For me, I think sounds really bring the strongest memories. Sparrows chirping, the TVB drama theme song, the roti man's honk (yes, a roti man in a van existed. He used to drive around the neighborhood selling baked goods! Gosh I loved the smell of all that baked goods and confectionaries), and of course, songs.

1979 - Smashing Pumpkins
I love this song so much, it deserves to be in a post on its own. Ahaha decided not to. 1979 is one of those songs that take me back to childhood times, car rides in the Wira on Saturday evenings, or going out to the playground before sundown. Whatever I see, I seem to associate this song with sunset! Darn, so good. Year of release: 1996

Come as you are - Nirvana
Can't believe I just found out the title and artiste of this song this year! This song provides even more of a visual flashback. I remember this as one of the first few songs I heard as a kid - 5 years old in kindygarden, I'm not kidding you. It's a sad-ish song that I found myself attracted to throughout my childhood. Year of release: 1992

Lovefool - The Cardigans
This is the ultimate song of my childhood. Always playing on the radio. Catchy beat, simple lyrics, easy to remember. Brings me back to the times when I went to I-Care tuition (for Chinese language classes, anyone remember that?), art classes, afternoon naps. Blissfully simple times, man. Year of release: 1996

Other songs that bring flashback - I Want it That Way by Backstreet Boys, Mama by Spice Girls, Tearin' Up My Heart by N*Sync. Teehee! 

that new spirit

"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh." Eze 36:26

" will be my people, and I will be your God." Eze 36:28

"For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline." 2 Tim 1:7
