I love you great-grandma. R.I.P.
Growing up. From a little baby, so innocent, to a teenager, so sinful. As we grew we got more courageous. And as we got more courageous, the more we defied, rebelled. The more we disappointed our parents. The more we bitched about others. The more friends we made, the wider our social life becomes. The more differences we spot in one another, the more enemies we made. The more stereotypes formed, the more we judged a book by it’s cover. I think we really need to put differences aside and stop all the judging and know someone by interacting with them before we decide if we wanna be just friends or best friends.
If one day, one of your friend told you this - I don’t mind losing you. How would you feel? Has everything you done for them gone to a waste? Do you feel upset? Do you feel like just stop being friends?
Not me. We were talking and casually asked “Would you mind if you lost us as friends?” He replied “No.” I was very extremely shocked. And the same reaction goes for the other guy.
Can say that I didn’t expect that. But still, I treasure him as my superduperuber good friend. I know it’s probably cos he isn’t sure of his feelings cos I can tell that he does. He said” I don’t mind being friendless.” No, you mind. If you don’t mind, would you be hanging out with us so often? Would you be sad that you are too busy, you can’t hang out with us? Would you be angry with your mom when she disallows you to go out?
To my friend, we care for you. We’ll be there for you, even though you said those things that kinda hurt us. Nevertheless, we’ll always be there.
Mom left for Malaysia. It was kinda great because I could sleep on a comfy bed instead of the sofa. :D But, without the presence of mommy, I was in charge of cooking for everyone, making sure everyone was well fed, but not overfed. You know why (: cough**cough**
On saturday, Justin and I went for a product launch seminar. I can’t wait for the 2 new product to be launched. 15 jan, iCallQ and March, B4P(this I can’t wait :)) We proceeded back to Grandma’s house after the seminar was over. I was so glad to see my whole family there. This time, without my mom :( But we still had fun. Took videos, pictures and then ate mango cake. AuntMildred said I look fatter :( And said I gained at least 3 kg. Truth be told, it’s 5kg :/ But she said I look better with the current size and that I should maintain it. I’d try:/ But I’ve been greedy. Enough of being fat… We really had fun. Back home, I called Mom. She was sleeping! Opps. So sorry..
Sunday, Jie was not at home. Dad went to work. So, I had to cook 4 shares. I woke up at 12plus.. The 2 girls were still sleeping. lilPIG and lilSNAKE. MONKEY was as usual playing/using the computer.. (I’m still a lilCHICK :))
Took one hour plus to whip up 5 simple dishes. Steamed Tofu, Pork Soup, Boiled corn, Oven toasted honey hotdogs and omelette :) I hope all of them enjoyed the food! :D made with love.
Did many silly things with the 2 girls in the evening. We were so engaged,we didn’t realise that it was already 8! We changed and then went to makan. lilPIG and lilCHICK ate lormee. lilSNAKE ate prawn nooddles. We joked and talked and blahed. :) Then proceeded back home. Once again, I was the last to finish.. Bought food for dad then went home.
Called mom several times but she didn’t pick the phone up! So worried. Since there was no internet, I kept myself occupied by playing minesweeper. A while later, I discovered an unsecured network. So I just used it :X Waited till 5plus. Finally an SMS of assurance that my mom was safe! :’) I woke lilSNAKE up and she went to school.
Got up at 8:50am today to go to school to do project. Gotta stay back till a lil late today to complete everything. :D
It’s funny how 2011 arrived and things that happened 2 days ago are referred to as “last year”. :) I’m glad my family and friends made it through 2010 and I sincerely hope 2011 would be a better year for them. There are many ups and downs in life. But the survivors are those who stood up and continue to walk towards 2011 despite the numerous falls. Well done!
How I welcomed the new year.
I was helping out in the minimart. We all wanted to countdown at home but we closed the minimart, late. Just as we were on the highway, the clock struck 12 and 2011 arrived. Without much thinking, we wound down the window, and screamed and shouted our hearts out. “Happy New Year”, “May 2011 be a great year” blahblahblah. hahaha. I hope the special countdown we had would bring us a special year.
It’s great to have a change. But, it’s not as easy once it becomes part of you, a habit. We all should have New Year Resolutions. It’s actually gives us a head start and gives us the direction we are heading to. It also allows us to think back about last year and the improvements needed in our lifestyle for the new year to be a better and more meaningful one. Some may say resolutions are dumb, are not needed. It’s up to individual. But, creating new year resolutions allow me to reflect on the previous year and how I handled stuffs like relationships, friendship, kinship and even studies. Make a resolution today! :) I hereby wish the best for 2011.
PEACE. LOVE. HAPPINESS.
