Long time no see

It has been a long, long while since I've written here. I don't really know what inspired me to be here again but I just had this sudden to revisit this blog.

Many things have happened since my last post. For a start, I am mother of two now! However, I feel like I have four children in the house all the time. Here are my two adorable munchkins during our recent staycation at Grand Mercure Roxy.

There's a lot on my mind lately but predominantly I am pondering whether to "officially" homeschool my children. I have been doing the usual alphabet and numbers writing and crafty stuff with my 3.5 yr old daughter, Avisha, but I still send her for three times a week nursery class at GUG. She seems to be enjoying her classes but rejected the idea of starting her five-day school next year and "insisted" that I be her teacher instead. This is something that I would really like to do; I welcome the idea of having vacations any time of the year, customising her education to her needs, experiential learning, incorporating the bible into school curriculum and all the good things about homeschooling BUT I am just not sure if I can handle homeschooling her AND managing my toddler all at once. Hence I am considering getting additional domestic help, which sparked of more thoughts and questions. Well, that's for tomorrow's blog posting. :)

What counts

I am going to reach the BIG 30 this year and I am not looking forward to it. I did not expect to get all emotional about it but I think I am! As I look back at the past 29 years 6 months and 5 days of my life, I must say there are many good memories, definitely more positive than negatives ones. I can't help but also wonder what I have done that counts.

How many people have I been a neighbour to?

How many people have I given hope to?

How many people have I clothed and fed?

How many people have I truely loved as I love myself?

What would it be like if...

Tonight's conversation in the car...

Me: What do you think your life would be like if we were not married?
Dan: Hmm...think I would keep more to myself... my life would revolve around my family.
Me: What about me? How do you think my life would be like if I'm not married to you?
Dan: I dunno...I started really KNOWing you after we got together.
Me: Yah...but knowing me...what do you think?
Dan: I really can't answer that, only you can, coz you would have been quite a different person when you were single.
Me: But my core would be the same rite?
Dan: Yah, but the situation around a person affects how a person responds.
Me: True...but.

Me as a light yellow being...

Wednesday, January 02, 2008 a good way

Za-ba-lang (in a mess), this is the state of my mind now. Not in the negative sense, just messy. Blogging these thoughts is my attempt at organizing them.

This is the time of the year when one takes stock of what has happened and new resolutions are made. Well, I did the same on 31 Dec 2007 in church. I made a covenant with God to complete certain tasks and prayed that He will guide me through them. That was the first time I have physically penned down my covenant with God, I think it was made more tangible that way. I was supposed to get that written copy of my "letter to God" back but alas, Chris & I were so busy irritating each other that we did not write our addresses on the envelopes before we dropped them into the "mailbox". Ah well, they are etched in my heart anyway.

Now, as I count my blessings and the number of pleasant surprises that God has so graciously given to me, I realise they are more than a handful! He has given me new meaning & motivation for my work (after a long period of "dryness"), provided opportunities to pursue my interest in designing, brought Chris to church, renewed my vision for RFKC and most of all, gave me a new "pumping" heart that is capable of loving.

2007 was not a bed of roses but looking back, I understood what it means by "when you do not see the hand of God, learn to trust His heart." I truely believe that He orchestrated everything that has happened in my life (perceived as pleasant or unpleasant) because He loves me and has a plan for me, just as it is written in Jeremiah 29:11 (New Living Translation)
"For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."

Because He Lives
God sent His son, they called Him Jesus
He came to love, heal, and forgive.
He lived and died to buy my pardon,
An empty grave is there to prove my Savior lives.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone.
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living just because He lives.

How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
And feel the pride and joy he gives.
But greater still the calm assurance,
This child can face uncertain days because He lives.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone.
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living just because He lives.

And then one day I'll cross the river,
I'll fight life's final war with pain.
And then as death gives way to victory,
I'll see the lights of glory and I'll know He lives.

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.
Because He lives, All fear is gone!
Because I know He holds the future
And life is worth the living just because He lives!

Scents & Sensibility
I took the "scents and sensibility" quiz on

My aroma personality is...


Are you usually the shoulder to cry on? Do you often end up playing therapist to your friends? Are you the model daughter? According to Worwood, fruit types are the best friends you could want...

What's your aroma persona?

Got my first digital camera!

I managed to emerge victoriously from the Comex crowd with my Canon Ixus 70. It was tough fight between the Ixus70 and the Ixus75. I was attracted to the 3-inch screen of Ixus75 but also tempted by the solid metal body of the Ixus70, I finally decided on the better looking, less "plastiky" Ixus70. Here are soe first shots:

I'm part Elmo and part Cookie Monster

Which Sesame Street Character Are You?

You are part Elmo. You are lovable and ticklish, and always inquisitive. Sometimes, though, your excitement about the world can make you seem childish, naive, and occasionally irritating to others.
You are part Cookie Monster. You are a glutton. You often make attempts at controlling yourself, but why stop yourself from getting what you really want? Cookies. Inside, you are sensitive and vulnerable and it just may be the source of your problems.
