Mummy’s girl

No, really. I do. 
Happy Mother’s Day mummy. Even though I know we’ve never really celebrated it. 
I just think you should be reminded of how much I appreciate having you in my life.
I thought I lost you when you left a few years ago. But it’s actually brought us closer to each other and we now have the kind of relationship I’ve always wanted to have with a parent. 

Thank you for loving me mum. 

I know it hasn’t always been easy. Hehe.

And I love you too.

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day and I was gonna post up a “boyfriend tag” video. If you don’t know what that is, look it up on youtube. But my video editing skills are close to none, so it’s gonna take a while longer to get done. 
Went for lunch with the boyfriend. Then we did some grocery shopping. And then went for a movie. It wasn’t specifically for Valentine’s Day though because I actually don’t really believe in it. I usually just send texts to the people I love and then do nothing different. This year, I WhatsApped (yes, I finally bought myself a BlackBerry!) my mum to which she replied “Hehe thanks girl, don’t know if you remember, dad and I never celebrated valentines”. I guess that explains why I don’t feel the need to celebrate it. I’m normally a very mushy sentimental person. I just don’t think there needs to be a specific day to love and appreciate the person you’re with.
Every day is “Valentine’s Day” with you 

Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Happy Chinese New Year to all those who celebrate it. 
This festive season is one filled with love, joy and food. Loads and loads of it.
The thrill of waking up on the morning of CNY has however disappeared. My family’s really tiny and now without my parents around, there’s not much to look forward to. I guess for the most part, I still look forward to it because I’m aware of how precious these moments are. It won’t be too long before my grandparents aren’t around anymore and that would probably be the end of CNY for me. 
Spent yesterday preparing for the reunion dinner and then headed over to the island with baby bro and some friends. And today, we had lunch. Expecting a couple of relatives to drop by sometime over the next few days but with the exception of that, the celebration is more or less over for this year.
I don’t know if CNY seemed more magical when I was younger because we celebrated it on a grand scale or I was just too easily amused, like any child would be really. Either ways, I think it’s time to start my own traditions while I still feel in some way connected to my Chinese roots. Time to bug my friends into going for a yee sang dinner outing with me. Any volunteers?

GONG XI FA CAI everyone!!!


I was actually a little reluctant to accept the fact that 2011’s come to an end. After all, it was such a good year in so many ways. But time waits for no one.

I’ve spent the last 6 new year’s eves out partying with friends. This year, I’m at home. I decided that if there wasn’t something meaningful for me to do or be a part of, I just wouldn’t do anything at all this time. Didn’t feel the need to put on a charade and socialize with people I don’t really know. Also, the crowd and traffic almost everywhere would be insane!

Having the past few days to myself has been quite relaxing and peaceful. I guess that’s as good a way as any other to usher in the new year 

Happy New Year everyone!!!
(insert imaginary fireworks)

Keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that 2012 is gonna be as good as, if not better than, 2011.
