Spending Time with the Loved Ones.

18 Jun

Been bumming at home for more than a month now, and it’s really making me more lazy!

Not like I have not been lazy before this but now that I can totally ditch my books, all I’m left with is to online and search for jobs.

And when job searching is done for the day, I pretty much just lay on the couch and search channels for programmes to just pass time.

Yes, it’s really as boring as it sounds.

On a brighter note, I think I’ve been spending more time than ever with the family and friends. πŸ™‚

Cousin Yiing was in KL for a week so we brought her around for a bit.

#1.

It was a day out at KL’s shopping malls – Suria KLCC, Pavilion, and Sungei Wang.

Yiing managed to get some good bargains herself from Sungei Wang then we had desserts. Where else but Snowflake for desserts! πŸ™‚

#2.

#3.

Then that week, I sneaked out to KL again to meet up my favourite girls from FEA! πŸ˜€

#4. PG!

#5. TBG!

Also got to meet my darling after that! Super happy! β™₯

The only boy in family turned 16 three days ago!

We had dinner together and a mini cake-cutting ceremony after that at home. Despite the fact that I’m unemployed and completely broke, I managed to dig some cash to get him a (cheap) cake. It’s the thoughts that counts after all, right?

#6.

Then it was Chatime! (Minus Pa cause he’s totally against Taiwanese desserts after all the reports >.<)

#7.

#8. Battle of the Nostrils!

Just yesterday, I managed to meet up with the bunch from USJ13 over dinner then headed to Zouk after that.

Too bad we were such cheapskates we didn’t exactly want to pay (at all) so we ended up at the Main Room (I think) instead of Phuture, which I heard is a lot better.

The room we were at was quite disappointing with typical clubbing songs and congested with men! Not a very welcoming sight at the dance floor you know, with drunk guys all over dancing, so Aud and I spent the night sitting at our table.

It might have sounded like a complete disaster but I sure had fun chatting with both sober and tipsy friends. Haha! Overall, I enjoyed myself very much I would say. Glad I decided to tag along, so yes thank you Audrey! πŸ˜€

#9.

As much fun as it may sound, to have my week productively spent with all those I love, I REALLY WANT TO WORK! 😦

Let’s just all keep our fingers crossed that I’ll get an offer next week, alright? πŸ™‚

Friends.

12 Jun

The thought came to me after reading Cindy’s (I make her sound like a friend of mine here but she’s famous blogger I happened to stalk almost everytime I come online. :p) post on BFF.

The question came, is a friendship measured by how frequent you guys meet? Or is there actually a balance point in between friendship and boyfriends?

Somehow I think it all comes back to the person herself, how she sees things in life. Or what sort of experience she’s been through to be able to say her thoughts on this matter.

I have a friend who now turns her attention and prioritize friends because when she was with her ex she completely ignored her friends and when that cheap bastard cheated on her, she was left alone.

I have another friend who tends to sub-consciously pamper and spoil her boyfriend because it’s been a long time since she’s had one and she thinks, ‘He’s the ONE’.

Well for me personally, I think (certain) friends come a little ahead before my boyfriend. He knows that too.

How do you just ditch friends who have been through everything with you before your Mr Right came? How do you turn them away just because he told you that’s the best thing to do?

Come on, we’re all grown ups with the ability to think, why do you need someone to tell you what to do when you already have your mom?

It makes absolutely no sense to me. If he THINKS he knows what’s best for you, why not tell him to do something about himself or go volunteer at some self-loving campaign because someone who really loves you for who you are will not tell you to change. He will support you in the things you do because it’s the mistakes that you two want to go through together. Not some decision that he claims is ‘right’.

Rubbish.

My point is, someone who really loves you will definitely learn to love and respect people around you too. If he loves you and only you, don’t you think there are going to be difficulties in spending the rest of the days together?

And really, never take friends for granted. Just because there’s break up with boyfriends so you think they’re more important and friends…hmm..you don’t exactly break up with them. Friends just drift away over time, right?

Wrong.

Do you really think your friends are that dumb to still let you come back after you’ve pushed them away because some random dude told you to do that? Even if they do, things will never be the same again. There’s no guarantee that there won’t be random dude number 2 who would come into your life and tell you to do the exact same thing again.

Friends are not measured by the frequency of their meet ups. Or how much the birthday present that you got for them isΒ worth. It’s all part and parcel of the genuine care and concern that you put in when they need it most.

Qii Turns Five

7 Jun

When I was able to so called think of a proper ambition, I actually thought of teaching. And the ambition somehow developed into a dream that I still hold onto today, that is to open a kindergarten. πŸ˜€

Random way to start this post but it’s somehow related la. Comes back to the point where I really like kids! πŸ™‚

It was my little cousin, Qii Qii’s birthday. This time her parents had a gathering at home which was definitely wise to me, because the little girl is more comfortable at her own crib AND there were many more kids!

#1. Two grown-up kids

Yes, these two monkeys with adult figures are still very much kiddies to me. And they’ll always be. πŸ™‚

#2. Everyone's feeling happy and kiddy-ish!

For some reasons all of us are always looking forward to go visit Qii’s family. Her grandma was my nanny for almost 15 years so yups, we’re kinda close. πŸ™‚

Shortly after we reached, the adults decided to let them have some play time at the mini pool. Good way to keep them busy since the weather was super hot!

#3.

I on the other hand, had heaps of fun watching them from the side. Simple things like the sprinkles from the water hose bring so much joy and laughters from all of them!

#4.

How to not love a cutie like him?!

#5. Weee!!!

After that, each one of them were brought in to bathe and dressed to their best for the Princess’s birthday!

#6. Young girls in big dresses

The sisters and I were saying how long their dresses are and how short it will get as they grow older. x)

The funny part is that they all wanted big dresses because they are all influenced by the Disney princesses, you know how big Cinderella, Belle and Snow White’s dresses are. Β Tsk tsk tsk.

#7. Birthday girl getting her hair done by grandma

Party started with food of course, and kiddy games throughout the night. Kiddy games in my dictionary = kids playing with random toys themselves with absolutely no rules.

As for us adults, we just sit and watch them in between the normal conversations with relatives. It is as boring as it sounds. =.=

Pictures (maybe not in sequence) ahead!

#8. The little boy we all love!

#9. Birthday girl with her presents

#10. Siblings with Nanny

#11. The Snow White-themed birthday cake!

#12. One of Snow White's dwarfs

They look adorable I know but they’re all made out of sugar so to prevent the kids all from getting sugar-rush, we quickly took them all away. Not quick enough to ‘save’ Snow White though. >.<

#13.

So the party ended at about 10 since the kids were all starting to cry and getting grumpy as bedtime drew closer.

Quite a good celebration as it was a good sight, looking at all the younger generations play while the older ones mingle happily talking about the old times. πŸ™‚
