just think

Just think...
It's amazingly easy how a word can ruin your day.
Or how a sharp word stings after its delivered.
Or how grudges unattended to fester inside you to become 
irreparable wounds that spew jealousy, anger and malice.

How your body stands guarded like a shining knight's armor
but your insides are quivering like jelly, trembling like a leaf.
How you have a 1001 words to retort back but instead you swallow 
it all in for fear of creating a domino effect of epic proportions.

It's amazing how sometimes the best thing to do is to nod, 
save your words and get up to leave
even if you disagree and want to soldier on with your case.

Just think...
How great it would be if you could 
just think before you speak the next time.
Just think before you blame the world and not yourself.
Just think about  what other's are going through
instead of just being cute and worrying about your lil' petty squabbles
that no one really gives a crap about. 
Just think about the repercussions, the chain effect
the butterfly effect, the next moment.
Just think.
Just think...

I touched a Million!!!

For those of you who are unaware, I enjoy playing Zuma... 
OK... more accurately, I liketh it heaps *smiles* 
Anyways, today during lunch @ the office 
{I know I shouldn't be Zuma-ing during office
 hours but it was lunch time}, I finally did it.

I scored 1,076,190!!! 
*woot woot*
*grins + laughs + jumps around for joy*
Finally I touched a Million!
The last high score that I blogged about was 734,910

a freaky movie just for the fun of it and stuff my face with candy  *grins*
Enjoy! Relax! & Don't be spooked!

A full Saturday

It's been a busy Saturday. Very family and Belle filled. B is at an event today so I have been doing my own thing today.When he isn't around, I miss him *smiles*

I woke up at 7:30am today and spent quite a bit of time today to go through some Project Happily Ever After stuff, watched 2010 Poker World Championship Tournament, surfed the interweb, played Zuma, bought heaps of pretty ribbons, played with Belle and went for a walk with her and my mum, chatted with my family and went to my aunties house. I did a bit of daydreaming as well and pinning @ Pinterest.

Just wanted to say that Project Happily Ever After is moving along, slowly but surely. Today really has been a  full day ~ hadn't had one of these in awhile. Hope all of you guys are having an awesome Saturday. 

P.S: I super love this quote about Happiness. It makes me smile.

Deepavali Wednesday

Today is Deepavali or Diwali the celebration of lights for our Hindu brothers and sisters. As such, it is a public holiday here in Malaysia today {yes another one *woot woot*} ~ I think we have the most public holidays in the world and I ain't complaining! 

So instead of sleeping early last night, I had a long Mexican dinner with an old friend, Di from college {the few that I had} and chatted about this and that... mostly about men and their weird ways. I later brought her to see the Love Nest which is not a 100% completed but is more or less 'there'. B also had some friends of ours over at the Love Nest, so Di and I continued our conversation in the craft room/study/library {must be more diligent in taking photos and posting them up}. Di and I chatted until about 1am and then she left and I joined in the poker game that was already in session ~ and yes, I play poker and I kinda like it and also thank God that B and I both won *woot woot* 

After poker, we kinda hung around some more to just chat and stuff. B reckons that our friends like hanging out at our place and I guess I feel that too. So far we have received only good comments about our Love Nest though my ex boss told me that it the kitchen was 'kinda boring'. Well, with the limited budget that we have, I think we have a lovely kitchen and a cosy Love Nest which is growing on me each time I stay there... I just am perplexed about how I am going to fit everything I own into Love Nest. 

Anyways, we slept at about 3am-ish and work up late. It was just awesome lying on the comforters and just reading. It was like lying on fluffy clouds! B was awesome as he cooked me lunch. We had an omelette with cheese and sausages ~ yums while watching Supernatural Season 3. It was satisfying and so carefree. Then while B tidied and cleaned up the Love Nest, I snuggled up under the sheets and continued reading ~ am reading Yann Martel's new book "Virgil and Beatrice" {I have read some reviews and sadly it ain't quite a promising read but I will give it a go nonetheless + I did buy it anyways so too late to turn back the clock on this one}.

The rest of the day passed by in a blur of sleeping, watching 'Captain America', talking, laughing, grocery shopping and dog pampering and then what do you know, the day is almost over. I should have done more stuff. Like planning for Project Happily Ever After, or cleaned my room or something but I didn't ~ shame on me! But anyways, the good part of it all is that there is only 2 more days till the weekend! *smiles smiles smiles* Hope all of you had a good Wednesday. I had a good lazy one with a wonderful man and my family ~ I am indeed blessed. 

I know it is also quite late but to all my friends and readers who celebrate the Festival of Lights, Happy Deepavali.

B & Date Night

Seen @ KLCC Site

It's been awhile since B and I had a date night and since there was a
Groupon promotion for The Lion King in 3D, I thought it would be
perfect for a date night session.

So on Saturday, B and I met at the Bangsar LRT station
{I earlier had lunch with Cat my oldest bestest friend at
The Loaf @ Bangsar Village 2} instead of driving into the city
to reduce our carbon footprint *smiles*

Seen @ 3D Guy TV

At KLCC, we walked around for a bit and then went to TGV to get
our caramel popcorn, coke and sprite. I was so excited to see the
Lion King in 3D even if I had already watched the cartoon more
than 10 times. It's just one amazing cartoon. I even watched
The Lion King the musical in Singapore earlier this
year and that was spectacular as well *grin grin grin* 

Seen @ Novelasymas

Lion King in 3D did not disappoint at all {excluding the noisy chatter of children and adults}. It was like watching the cartoon for the first time and it was magic all over again. What joy! I laughed and got misty eyes. I sang along under my breath and held B's hand and munched on the popcorn and maple, sugared bun *super happy happy joy joy*

After the Lion King, we walked around a little more and then decided to have dinner at The Apartment which faced the KLCC fountains ~ super romantic. It's simple memorable momentslike this that remind me of how blessed I am to have B in my lifeand to have such a wonderful family and so many lovely things.Indeed I am blessed. Thank you God for all these blessings. I can't wait for our next date night *smiles grin grin*

Ultimate Proposal - Josh & Katrina

I wept silly tears of joy when I saw this wedding proposal.
It made me think of my own engagement.
*snickers grin grin*
Come to think of it, my proposal
would make a pretty good video too.

Hello Kitty Debit Card

As mentioned in my earlier post Hello Kitty, today is the official launch of the Hong Leong Hello Kitty Debit Card! To read more about the Debit Card and what it is all about, you can visit Bernama's site

So have I gotten myself the Hong Leong Hello Kitty Debit Card with its super cute pink and white stripes? YES of course. It's tucked neatly into my black purse. I can't wait to make my first transaction. I managed to get three of my colleagues to change to the Hello Kitty card *woot woot* {too bad no commission for me} ~ btw, one of them is a guy.

Btw, it was a pity that I didn't get to take a photo with Hello Kitty or Kitty White as she is known. Plus I forgot to use my Hello Kitty bag at the launch. It's a classic one that my mother bought for me when I was about 11 or so. I have so many memories of Hello Kitty. Of shopping at Jaya Jusco {the old one with the bubble lift in Taman Tun Dr Ismail}and begging my mum and grandma to buy more Hello Kitty stuff... of shopping in Atria where there was a Kalm's outlet where I would go with my friends from primary school after KK class on Saturday's. My grandma pampered me and bought me heaps of things I recall ~ I am so blessed. 

Well enough rambling, you can read more about Hello Kitty at the Sanrio website and also learn more about other awesome Sanrio characters. For cutes wall papers and the like you can just google for Hello Kitty and you get heaps of links *smiles*. AND if you love all things pretty and want a super cute pink stripey Hello Kitty card, head on to the 329 Hong Leong Bank branches nationwide.
