Jatuh Cinta ~ {Falling In Love}

Yes, I can't help falling in love with this song. I have never seen this girl anywhere before, except at his blog. Not because she is not popular, rather because I'm so out of loop of what's happening in Malaysia's music scene.

His blog is the only blog that I read more than 5 times a week and it doesn't relate to scrapbooking or photography. So thank you Vernon!

For your listening pleasure..

Smiles. . . smiles. . . smiles

So many reasons to be happy!

Went cycling with DH and my girls and had tons of fun. Even tho the same thing can't be said about my body the day after. Sore all over! But yes, I will do it again in a heartbeat.

Confirmed our hotel booking this week. Paid the travel agent. So looking forward to the trip. Are we pampered? Not really.. well, maybe. Since our last roadtrip was in September and now its only December but we need to go again, real bad! LOL. My girls and me.. we're spoilt by DH. I prefer to take several small trips... rather than one long holiday right now. And any location is good, any location is as exotic and relaxing as long as my family is with me. Ask my DH, I'm content even if we're going to our favorite haunt yet again...

Selected as Fresh Pages DT for the February-May term. The email from Brianne brought a huge smile on my face..(was on a losing streak on RPS, and suddenly it didn't matter anymore). Thank you Brianne!! All the international girls will be in he February-May term, while the US girls will be in January-April term. Just to ensure we have ample time to work after receiving the kits.

The gorgeous Rebecca Trump pea-mailed me asking if she could use one of my layout for their Member Inspiration. Of course I said YES YES YES!!! Haha!! And she took it and make it hers! This girl, she is so dang talented! Love her style.. and love her!! Here's the link to her layout. Awesome!

Got my copy of Scrapbooking Memories Australia, with my layout in it... picture will come another day.

For all these, I'm thankful. Thankful that I have my family and close friends to share the joy with. I leave you with the latest picture of Nidhi, taken on our way home from watching Bee Movie.

Follow Your Heart

What is creativity?
An open heart and mind -
The willingness to take a chance
and see what you can find,

It's cherishing the beauty
and the joys of simple things,
Embracing the mystery
in the change and growth
life brings. . .

It's visions of the future
linked with wisdom of the past,
Ideas that need some time to grow,
and dreams that take shape fast. . .

it's listening to your inner truth,
It's play and laughter, too,
and all the special gifts
within unique, creative you.

Thank you Najwa for this beautiful reminder :)

What can I say?

I have fabulous girlfriends! I can't ask for more!

ps : sorry for the inconsistent sizing of pics. I had to edit those parts meant for our eyes only... LOL!

This arrived first... from Lia.

Then this... from Nana.

Then Deedah, her cream puffs and The Pizzas arrived together...

Then we ate.. and talked and laughed ourselves silly until its time for some group photos. As you can see, we're still busy laughing our heads off, well, most of the time.

Love this shot!

Some emotional moments with Nidhi.

My girls and me.

Lia and Me. Love this girl!

Nana and Me. My personal photographer for the night! Thanks Na!! Love you loads!

All of us, accompanying Sal having her pizza :D

The cake Liza bought for me. Thanks bunches Liza!! Love you, girl!

The fantastic Sal! Always, always making me laugh!

We even managed to get in some hair plaiting session. :D

My beloved Deedah, she's gonna be responsible for 'something' if 'something' happens to me in the near future!! Haha!

The sweetest girl, Wati! Came all the way from the other side of the island!

My beautiful, beautiful wallpaper :) Cushion up on cue! LOL...

My more-than-a-sister, Lia :) *hugs*

Seriously girls, it was a wonderful night for me. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I love each and everyone of you.. loads and loads of love from me to you. *hugs*

Random 7

I was tagged by Kate, Debbi and Leena! Sorry it took me so long to get to it! :D *huge grins* If you haven;t already done so... do visit their blogs! Lots of inspirations, I promise!

Ok, let's start shall we? :)

Seven (not-so) randomly silly (well, crazy and un-interesting too maybe) facts about me.

1. I sleep on my tummy, one hand twisted to the back and tucked in under my body. Urmm, i think this sounds weird and a bit unexplainable, but its really comfortable! LOL.

2. I'm terrified of dogs. Yup, thats it. Just because :)

3. I prefer to text than actually talking on the phone.

4. I'm a gadget collector, much to the horror of my darling husband. LOL

5. I'm a vainpot.

6. I *heart* Eric Delko ;)

7. I'm real chatty when I'm with people I love and people I don't!

So there... 7 random facts about me. I don't think I know of anyone who hasn't been tagged yet... :)

{Believe In Happy Endings}

Believe In Happy Endings
This is for OLW and Pencil Lines #54.

Yes, I let my girls believe in happy endings. Of course they know there is no such thing as magic spells and prince charming kissing you and waking you up from a 100 years' slumber. I make sure they understand that, even though they read fairytales almost every single day. But I want them to know, that everything will be alright in the end, as long as you're true to yourself.


Earlier today, someone asked me why I don't write about "things" on my blog. I asked her, what kind of "things"? She said, daily happenings, life. I said I do, just in small quantity.. and I don't feel the need to blabber.

Nothing to hide, nothing to tell. I like it this way ;) and thanks for understanding. Love ya! I really do!
