So excited about shopping today!

My husband is out playing golf today.  It has been a rainy long weekend but we had lots of fun this one.  While I would’ve loved to have his company today, I’m very excited to go on a shopping spree for myself and equally happy that he’s enjoying his time out at the golf course today.  Babe, hope the weather gets better for you.


Although on Friday night, I was hit by the occasional fatigue bug and couldn’t really fight it anymore. Snuggled into bed at around 10pm.  This was a bonus for Saturday because I rose nice and early at 8.30am!  Did all the housechores while hubby was still sleeping so by the time he woke up, we could head out for lunch already.


Saturday, after disppointing wet weather cancelled our BBQ plans at Eduardo’s, we had a relaxing shopping day and went to Andy Lau concert.  Man, it’s been awhile since I’ve been to one of these functions.  Andy is a real performer.  He hosted a great show even though I must admit, I’m not a huge fan of his.  But just to see the excitement (and tears of joy) in my hubby’s eyes as he shouted ‘Andy Lau, I love you!!!’, reliving his teenage years (20 years ago ) was worth every dollar paying sitting in the front row.


Yet again, another upsetting rainy day called for the cancellation of our BBQ dinner plans with Julz and Renee.  I had totally forgotten that Sunday was DayLight Savings.  So, I missed my midday appointment at Wax Factor for washing the dishes at home!  Rescheduled it for later that day before heading out to Korean BBQ with Julz and Renee in place of our cosy home BBQ.  Oh well – at least the food was awesome!  Not to mention how great a night we had, chatting, laughing..the DSLR and photoshop conversations..and ‘Eagle Eye’.


Now, I’m ready to head out for some lunch and shopping all by myself.  I wonder if I’ll have some time when I come back to actually rewind back in the past and posts a few entries of the wedding planning for memory’s sake?


 

Dinner with you girls

It’s beginning to feel more like ‘Sex and the City’.


Dinner at Isa’s was great.  These get-togethers are getting rarer, as we grow older and have more responsbilities.


Thinking back to a few years ago, when we were all single for Valentine’s Day, life was so simple and carefree.  With maturity comes so much more responbility and appreciation for the times I get to spend with you girls.


Nowadays, we are old nannas.  I can’t believe we all headed home at 9pm.


Nonetheless, thanks Isa for organising this.  Yes – we should do it more often (than once every 3 months!!).

A Daily New Reason to Appreciate

 Because God has given me the chance to.


I am awaken from my dark slumber of the past.  Those days are no longer lingering with no reason and no end.


I am given a fresh start because that weight has been lifted by the Great Power.


Days of the dark shadows will not disappear but those shadows will not cloud me from my pursuit to happiness.


I have a reason to appreciate……I hope you have a reason to appreciate as well.



Now, I look forward to the 16th October!!!  My list of things to do is sooo long….e.g…



  • Go through wedding planning notes, photos, gifts to create my scrapbook

  • Send out my Thank You cards

  • Re-arrange the furniture, clothing, bedroom makeover

  • Start my part-time job (needless to say) to keep me sane

  • Read the books I want to read

  • Write my business plans

  • Get into shape (to minimise the ‘pear’ bum as much as I can)

  • …what about my ‘household operations reform’? LOL*

  • ………………

Sun is out and I’m excited

Finally, the sun is out…Summer is approaching.


This winter has been too long.  I have longed for the warmth of the sun.  My skin is breathing the warmth in the air.  I love it.


As my employment nears its end, I am excited by the thought of having my ‘life’ back and being able to do all the things that I wanted to do.  I am ready to kick back into ‘balance’.


Life is exciting now….I can’t wait to taste it.


You just wait, xanga …I will be back full force! hehehe..


 

The Perfect Hen’s Night

To my lovely bridesmaids (who organised my dream hen’s night),


Thank you for making me feel so special.  I cannot believe how much you girls know me and I mean it – inside-out!  Because everything has happened so quickly, I don’t actually recall telling any one of you what I had in my mind as the perfect hen’s night.  One, that irrespective of circumstances, that I would’ve wanted.


Yet you girls were able to arrange this perfect night for me.  Chilled out, relaxed, fun, girly, reasonably tame and elegant! (Not to mention the appropriate supply of food!!!)


I love you…


I truely felt the love and had a great night and I hope you all did too.

Venetian – Macau

It was magical.

Willie and I were honoured to be the guests of Willie’s Dad invited to stay at one of the 4 presidential suites (of the 3500 rooms) in the Venetian Resort in Macau.  It was more than 400 square metres with 3 master bedrooms, a private courtyard featuring a swimming pool and 2 water features, a gym (yes – inside the suite), a karaoke room with remote song selection, a massage room, a steam and sauna…….not to mention the possible 20 plasmas screens splattered everywhere around the suite.


We took a tour around the suite with our camera which took us 11 mins to introduce.  I’m trying to upload this without much luck.  Assuming it’s way to large a file.

Mobflash – Martin Place

I got a ping today, “hey…were you at Martin Place?  At around 12:45?”


What a random question?


MobFlash_MartinPlace_24


I wished I was there….This type of thing just fascinates me.  Not so much the fact that 500 people had so much time in their hands to waste but more so, how it would feel if I was trapped in the space of Time for 3 minutes.


Because, all I want in my 24 hour-day is just an extra ‘3 minutes of ‘you know what’ time’…..
