I was enchanted to meet you...

Love in responds

I was going through a friend's note on FB entitled love, and as I see it, it's quite clear he's been through a heartbreak. I don't claim to be an expert on LOVE, seeing as I've no experience in this area whatsoever, but this is just my personal opinion.

I think guys in general think that money is of up-most importance when it comes to a relationship. I would say it's true if the girls are really materialistic that way. But I don't feel that money is everything, it just helps alot. If I really wanted something, I'd get it myself, I don't NEED a guy to buy it for me. BUT it would mean a lot if the guy did buy it for me.

I believe what the Bible says about Love, that it is kind and patient. Anything that falls short of that, is not really love... Love itself is pure and born from God. It is man that makes it seem evil at times. If you find that true love, it will last forever.

I believe that when I find that someone, we will make each other want to be better people. There will be understanding through the fights, longing through separations, balance though the uncertainties. My special someone will Love God as much, if not more, as I love Him.

The guy that I'm talking about is a really nice guy, ambitious, good-looking and capable. It's sad that he had to meet and fall for a girl that couldn't see or appreciate those qualities. He's someone I'd date, though I don't think I'm his type... But I wish him all the best in achieving the goals he's set for himself.

Wedding Photography

I just came across this blog, and the blogger takes wedding photos. And my Goodness are they to die for....

I love weddings and everything about them. It's a dream to become a wedding planner.

I often tell my friends that I won't get married before I'm 30, but if the right one comes along, I think I can do 28 the earliest... But I say this because I want my wedding to be perfect. I want to do everything I can to achieve my everything I want in life before I commit to a marriage.... now here i am going on about my aspirations in life, when I was suppose to talk about this awesome blog I found.

So I can either assume that this lady, Jenny, is a wedding photographer herself, or that she just attends many different weddings and take amazing shots. I haven't read all the entries, but either way, she really has an eye for great photos!

Not to mention the wonderful photos, but the weddings themselves are so one-of-a-kind! Such wonderful little details, from the decor to the little door gifts, and especially the setting/ place!! Every wedding is just such a dream... I'm such a sucker for the vintage-y look that obviously this lady likes too...

It's decided! I'm having my dog as the ring barer, and I want bubbles, or flower petals instead of confetti....
And if we can incorporate something Pottery in the wedding, that would be ideal.... =P
I may turn out to be one of those bridezillas....

Change of Heart

Lately, there's this one book that caught my eye in the library. I'm a sucker for books with a great cover design.

Change of Heart - by Jodi Picoult

I've always heard Jodi Picoult's books were good, but after reading this one, I can't wait to start on another!


Shay Bourne - New Hampshire’s first death row prisoner in 69 years – has only one last request: to donate his heart post-execution to the sister of his victim, who is looking for a transplant. Bourne says it’s the only way he can redeem himself…but with lethal injection as his form of execution, this is medically impossible.

This book had deep spiritual discussion and it was very thought-provoking....
It has the suspense of any crime mystery and the intellectual aspect to learning about the laws of freedom of religion, as well as the death penalty.

It's heartbreaking to put yourself in the shoes of each character.

June - The wife and mother to the victims (a police officer and a little girl). Trying to keep herself alive to save her remaining child. But how would she feel about letting the man you hate save your only daughter's life.

Claire - June's daughter. How she would have felt to have the heart of the man that killed your father and sister.

(spoiler alert)
Father Michael - Having been on the juri who sentenced Shay to death, and now being given the duty of helping Shay find salvation.

Maggie - Shay's new lawyer, trying to fight for the death penalty to be abolished and also for Shay to be killed in another in order to save his heart.

It was certainly an eye opener to know about some history behind Christianity and to think about what i believe in. There have been times that people have told me things in religion that I've not agreed with. Don't get me wrong, I still believe in God and this book has not made me question that. I love Him and I know all that He's done to help me. But this book really hit a chord when it come to the religious turmoil happening in this world. Just because someone doesn't feel the way some religions say so, they are then rejected by that society.
Just like how I've been told some cults have misinterpreted the Bible to justify their actions, I sometimes feel that even speakers in church may misinterpret too. How sure are you that all that you're listening to is the truth? How do you know that what society tells you to do is right? How do we know that what we've been brought-up to believe is actually true?

There are also some excellent quotes in here that can certainly be used in our current society:

"Religion often gets in the way of God." - Bono, at the national prayer breakfast, Feb 2, 2006

"I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish He didn't trust me so much." - Mother Teresa

"This is my simple religion.
There is no need for temples;
no need for complicated philosophy.
Our own brain, our own heart is our temple;
the philosophy is kindness." - The 14th Dalai Lama

As an end note, I'm not saying what i think is the right way, but I do believe that in everything that we do, we should do it with Love. Because ultimately, isn't that what all religions tell us to do?


I was just browsing through some of my friend's pictures and I came across an album of her trip to the lavender fields in the UK. The photos just looked beautiful and the thought just came to me... The lavender fields would be such a romantic and beautiful spot for a proposal.
I know, I'm a hopeless romantic and I get a lot of random thoughts, and perhaps, if i document these thoughts, perhaps someday... a certain someone will be able to read them to know my inner most thoughts.

Isn't it beautiful?

Think of it this way. A proposal in a field of lavender is not only simple and romantic. Imagine the smell that creates calm-ness, plus if the marriage works out, everytime the girl smells lavender, she will always think of that moment. It's the most wonderful feeling when a scent gives you a wave of memories, of the moment, of the feeling. Now THAT would be a wonderful proposal.

Though i wouldn't say no to one of those Musical Proposals you see on YouTube... :P

Pottery Goodness

I Am Officially Malaysia's Biggest Harry Potter Fan!

See what happened was there was this contest by YuberActive and in conjunction with the opening of the Last Harry Potter film, they decided to have a video contest!

Well, the prizes really did catch my fancy (being film merchandise and all), but what i really wanted was to be at the Premiere! I just had to! It was the last one!

So i just filmed my video with "my collection" got ppl to vote (and seeing as they had 20 spots for the finalist, but with only 13 participants), I managed to get through to the next round.

I met lost of other Potter fanatics at the event, and it was really cool and all. Honestly, i didn't expect to win at all, But I Did!! LOL!

Yes, I was quite the celebrity. Bring interviewed and all.

So as my prize, I won a special private screening of the movie! the whole hall to myself! but there's a catch.... it's at some out-of-the-way place called kepong, and its a 10am show.... yeah... super right? oh well... it would have been too good to be true.

Well, at least i get to be on the newspaper...

my winning videos

at least no one in Malaysia can beat my collection....

Swiftly Sailing

At the risk of being very Perasan, I'm going to show off a bit and tell you all about my Happy Days.
But well, this is my blog afterall so I can write wateva I want, and you still have to carry on reading! ... if you want la....

So yeah, I got to see Taylor Swift Live in Concert!!! At her first Speak Now World Tour show, in Singapore!!! For months I was trying to get a friend to go with me, but all in vail.... So i decided to go on my own!!! I only managed to get the cheapest tix, but the view turned out to be quite good. I bunked with one of my besties, who studies at NUS... Shh... no one needs to know...
Look at the line to the merchandise counter!

Finally here. So little stuff left, but managed to get me the booklet and the olive tour t-shirt!

Finally heading into the stadium!

I'm finally here!!! moments before the show.

I managed to record most of her performance and you can check them out at my youtube channel. I was so excited to be one of the first few ppl to upload the videos and that made so many ppl watch it! Never have i had 18k views on my videos!

It's Taylor! With Sparks Fly!

Fearless on the ukulele

Taylor is so awesome!
I'm so glad i got to watch the concert! Even though i was alone, i wouldn't change it for the anything.

Never Grow Up

I just realized everything I have
Is someday gonna be gone

So here I am in my new apartment
In a big city, they just dropped me off
It's so much colder than I thought it would be
So I tuck myself in and turn my night light on

Wish I'd never grown up
I wish I'd never grown up
-Never Grown Up - Taylor Swift

I know... I've been MIA again for ages...
It's just that so much has happened, and writing just didn't seem to be on the list of important things to do... (FB is definitely on that list, lol) I think i sorta backslided since i abandoned my Xanga blog, and kinda lost the hype of it all. Even most of my friends have stopped blogging. I think another factor is that blog have stopped being personal. A lot of blogs nowadays are more towards blog shops or event bloggers out to promote products and whatnot. With blogs being so commercialized, I just didn't want to seem like one of those people to have blogs to make themselves popular. I want to read blogs that are of genuine honesty and feelings....

It's really a shame what life does to us when we grow up. We lose our innocence, our faith, humanity, love, trust. Everything we see happening in the world nowadays just isn't worth the time anymore.

That is why I try to hold on to the few things in the world that is still sincere, Like Taylor Swift and her music. I don't care if people will make fun of me for liking her saying she's too commercialized or too sweet. That's only because she's such a great role model and she's always so real to everyone. People love her and whoever doesn't like someone who is sweet, then there's something wrong with you. I can understand if you don't like country music, but don't try and diss her music.

Well, it is the new year, and I'm open to new things and I will not let the hardships in life get me down! This is why i will try to write more often here! I promise!! But if I decide to go MIA again... sorry....
