This too shall pass. Right?

Bear with me as I grit my teeth, 
try to turn the frown into a smile, 
and make an effort to dance in this storm.

After all, as they say, how can you make a rainbow without a little rain?

Dream a lil dream

Dreamy's Disclaimer: Got all these pics all over the internet. If any of 'em are yours, fret not, I am not claiming ownership to them. Except, maybe, in my daydreams. There, they belong to me. ALL MINE!

Because I miss Korean food...

... I improvised. Again.

The weather's been slightly wonky and frosty, and I've been hankering for some good 'ol comfort Korean food.

So I cut up some fatty pork, fried it slightly, then dumped in a bottle of store-bought kimchi, let it simmer for 30 minutes, plonked it on hot, steaming japanese rice, and sat in front of the TV with Super Hubs while we watched Barcelona cream MU.

Good times. Real good times.

Happy Birthday Star-rio :)

It's my sister-in-law's birthday today! 
(yikes, sounds so old like that. Got sister-in-law all). 

Everyone give a big shout out (or in the heart one also can) to the crazy funny and (sometimes silly-ly lovely) wife of my brother Don!

Love you loads sweetie! 

My fisherman

 *pic for illustration purposes. This was taken the day before he actually caught the fish.

So, a couple of months back when we were in his hometown, my Hubs left me in bed at an ungodly 4am one cold morning.

And he came back a couple of hours later, (literally) beating his chest like a he-man, proudly brandishing his spoils.

Say what you like, but I find husband carrying wife's-too-heavy-bag extremely sexy. 

I like :)

When I played model

The other day, a friend suggested that I help their boutique 'model' some of their clothes.

I know I'm not model material la. But a girl can dream. 

And since they asked, who am I to say no? :p

Some more it's Romyda Keth, you know?

J'adore! Her cuts so flattering can die. 

My fave's the red polka dot one. What's yours?

Mip's Super Funny Birthday

A few weeks ago, we celebrated the "don't ask" birthday of my mostest dearest friend in Luxembourg.

She's an amazing character, with the biggest heart and kindest spirit. I love her tremendously, and it's not just me - everyone who knows her does. She's truly awesome. And happy. And nice. And adorable. And funny.

In fact, in our everyday conversations, no matter what our moods are like or what has happened, she always asks me to tell her a 'funny story', and then she tells me one. So while we're wracking our brains to think of something 'funny', the previous woes or complains we had are pushed away by funny stuff.

It's funny. :p

Her birthdays are legendary. In this past one year, I've heard so many tales about previous parties, and all of them include very funny incidents, involving a whole lotta super awesome people, finger licking good food, copious amounts of great wine, litres of champagne and non-stop hard hitting shots of vodka. Seems the birthday girl is the only one standing at the end. And this year I got to witness it for myself.

The theme was 'funny colors'. And from here on, I'll let the pictures do the talking. It was a crazy, crazy, funny party. You'll wish you could have been here.

The choice

I've been away for quite some time now, haven't I?

Have you ever had the feeling that there are some days or weeks or months where things happen so quickly and life changes so unexpectedly and drastically that you can't even begin to fathom it in your head?

How do you jot stuff like that down? Especially when you haven't begun to know what to think of it yet? Or when you don't know the answer to the questions like, "what's next?"

Worry not though. Because despite it all, I feel appreciative and very contented. Because I know that everything's that happening is unfolding exactly as it should be.
After all, that's what life really is about, isn't it? Making the choice to be happy every step of the way.

It helps too, that people you love are magically present when you need them the most. And the people that matter stick by you like bees to honey.

I'm blessed. I truly am. And I know all of you are too.

Happy Wednesday, dear friends.

p.s. This video always makes me laugh. Enjoy!

Roses are red, 
Violets are blue,
I am most lucky,
My mummy is you.

*a big hug that lifts you off your feet*

Happy Mother's Day, Mi. 
Today, and everyday of my life.

A grateful daughter.
