*splish* *splish* *splash* !!

the rain is beating down heavily upon my windows and the cool winds feels so cold on my skin.
i'm snuggled on my comfy couch writing these words down.. it will even be better with a nice cup of hot cocoa *slurps*

our finances are not looking good, really. its so bad that somehow, it feels like a joke, though its not very funny. its how people get bankrupt (what a dirty word), gets depressed and end up suicidal. it is bleak alright, but nothing that God cannot do. somehow, the world seems much real when you're going through the situations which you think only other people goes through.

like how we always read about families struggling to feed their children, no money to pay off the bills, loansharks turning up in the middle of the night, you know? those kind of things that happened to other people, but not you?

well, we may not have loansharks turning up at our door, or us struggling to feed the kids (no kids, yet) but the amount of bills thats piling up is just, unbelievable. and you wonder why people got married in the first place, hmm?

anyway, i woke up today having a confident expectation of good. even when the money seems like its drying up, i still can expect good to come out of it. when the downtimes come, it is up i look. no matter how i fall, i still fall into a confident expectation of good to come. i must'nt let this pull me down. because i have a awesome jesus who has died to give me all my blessings. to let this put me down, is to let Him died in vain.

no, i must'nt do that.

instead, i will continue to sing His songs, soak in His word and feel His love for me. because when it matters the most, jesus is all i've got.

presenting the comic life of the wei

chapter 1:
calling johnny,
"ringggggg, ringggggggg!!!"
waiting for the call to get through

making funny face while still waiting for call to get through

oh man, is he ever going to answer?!

hmmm..... maybe he's busy

yeah!! finally picked up!!


chapter 2:
how my wife likes to annoy me
what is my wife doing again?

i will just stone while she do her thing

or maybe i'll take a nap

or maybe i'll give her my most menacing stare.
and i growl, "are you done?!!"
to be continued.....

random notes to self

as seen on simplysoles
well, a girl can't have too many shoes!! (make that flats,ha!)
*note to self: must make a trip to schu very soon!

ooohh.. and my sister is officially married! will post some photos soon, but right now, i just want to dream of the many other pairs of shoes that i wanna own...

and i was in holland v today and past by song & song. in case you don't know whats song & song is, its the best retail therapy at dirt cheap prices!

there're like factory outlet but much, much cheaper. a t-shirt is like 2 bucks, tops and skirts are like $5-$8 bucks, dirt cheap!!

there's always a but!

you'll have to really browse around, try it on and hunt for that worthy piece.

at the end, its all worth it, ha!!

on more random notes, i'm learing to experiment with make-up more. actually i think those activist who are anti-makeup have never put on makeup before.

true, makeup has alot of whatever processed chemicals, but if it helps you look good, why not?
ever wonder why the activist are usually dowdy people?
hear, hear..

personally, i believe makeup is to enhanced our features.
with a little foundation,
a dab of eyeshadow, a blush of rouge and that little tinge of glossy lips,
it can really make you look better!

and to quote from a famous makeup artist,
" if they notice your makeup, your makeup is shabby. if however they notice you, your makeup is impeccable."

more randomnessssss..

my husband's birthday is fast approaching, and i wonder what can i do to surprise him?
he's very alert to any changes in my moods and emotions, so i'll have to keep a tight lid on whatever surprises i might have.

but right now, i have none..

oh man, oh man...

my parents are on their own since both of us are married.
i'm missing them now and my husband is asleep on the sofa again!!
not that i keep him out, but he just fell asleep watching tv..
he's so adorable in times like this, ha!

i just want to post on the shoes, but really too random, indeed a woman's mind is like spaghetti.

foreign objects

*cold* brrrrrrrrrrrr...

it has been so long since i last fell ill and so to my surprise, i realised i was feeling feverish and having body aches all over. it feels so foreign to me as i'm so used to living in divine health, ha!

tomorrow my sister will be getting married!! so excited for her.. and after that i got to rush for a wedding project, haha.. when i was meeting with my client, i find this date so familiar but can't quite place my finger on it. till after the project has been confirmed then i realised its also my sister's wedding date! talk about blur-ness!

well i just hope after a super early sleep today, all this foreign discomfort will be gone!
i know my health is in good hands (",)

the weather mirrors me

how apt that the weather mirrors my mood for these past few days..

and so when the going gets tough, the tough starts to say, "and in all these things (tribulations, challenges etc..), I am more than a conqueror through Him who loves me!"

what is a real job?


i also say..

a real job is doing something you really enjoy, but how many of us can truly say that? oh man, the cynical me is trying to break free, but i shall not let it be! i don't want to turn into those horrible, cynical old lady always complaining about how life is, how people are always turning against each other, i refused to!

so, even when we're going through a rough financial patch now, i cling and cling onto the finished work of jesus and into His loving arms. He is always pleased to see me, ha!

His delight is in me!

but i'll be ok ;p

dark moods and bright lights

today was exceptionally dark.
have you been there before? where you feel that everything is pushed up tightly against you and you're too tight to breath? where the waves keep raining upon you and you're being pulled under? the currents are so strong today, when words became gravel in my mouth and i have no energy to fight anymore.
the only saving grace is the light that shines. my saviour's light.

little sister is going to be married!

my sister will be married in 2 days time! oh man, oh man! i am happy for her and i love her so if jd, you're not doing a good job, i'm coming after you!!

its really weird seeing your little sister grow up and get married.. whatever happened to the little cheeky girl?

i'll miss you and hopefully we'll catch up as much as possible, k.. and please be nice to me, ha!

change is coming.. eagerly anticipating for it because it is good!
have never felt more sure about it but just standing upon the promises of God that He will enlarge my tents and prosper me.

because i'm loved by Him, all good things will come my way and i've to be prepared for it, ha!

in the midst

yesterday i went for the seminar on God's plan for pregnancy.
well, we're not planning for one now, maybe in a year or so.
i did'nt walked away feeling super recharged or having exciting revelations falling upon me, instead, i find the seminar quite boring.
pastor nerida walker shared on how her husband was sterile, and when they both refused to believe the doctor's report, she began to search the bible for answers.
and she went on to share on how she believed God for children, and now they have 4 healthy kids within 4 1/2 years!
God sure move fast for them, ha!
so why is it boring?
hmm, maybe i was expecting more?
i really don't know.
we know we will have kids, but practically speaking raising children in singapore is really expensive. so when she keep emphasizing to trust God for kids, i find myself thinking,
"yes! yes! but its very expensive you know?!"
and out of it, so subtly during the ending praise & worship,
He spoke right to my heart.
"I will provide. I will provide".
with these 3 words, a sure assurance is set right.
it is in the midst of our trouble, that i am more than a conqueror through Christ.
in the midst of trials and tribulations, He still loves me.
in the midst of my confusion, His word is a lamp upon my feet.
in the midst of my lack, He will provide.

ramblings of the confused mind

another rambling......
had few doubts about my current worklife..
not sure if i would want to continue or a change..
even felt empty and lost in the midst..
when i see the flowers just waiting, waiting for bloom time..
and i know...
they will always be my first love..


today, i am in a complexed mood.
i've many thoughts running through my head right now and feeling very confused.
i find myself thinking on friendships.
do we have the choice of dropping friends like how we decide to be friends too?
as when friendships are no longer in place i.e no contact, no hanging out and no effort at all, does it means the friendship has died?
i don't understand this concept. so if there's no more word from each other, in context the friendship has indeed fizzled out.
but don't the years spent together laughing, talking, walking matters anymore?
i find myself reminiscing about the past.
and the present.
i thought i had let go, but apparently, i have not.
it could be i'm very sentimental about the past, thats why or it could be my strong desire to crave for a deeper relationship with friends.
i don't know.
all i know is that friends are made of precious moments.
the moments that are shared bonding over silly laughs, serious talks, heartaches and life.
the moments when you think of each other, you pick up the phone just to chat. the moments of comfort when you lose something, your shoulder is there for the tears. moments of secrets, of intimacy, moments of craziness and moments of countless words spoken over each other.
these are the friendship moments.
and yet
i think i want to move on now.
i think to let go, it is to be free from you. free to be me again.
though the memories will always be there,
i am going to find my own place.
just like how you'll always have a place in my heart.

okayy.. i'm listening to jay's new album, capricorn.
like his previous albums, i like to give his album a few spins to let the songs grow on me..
and this time round, he did not disppoint me ;p

i prefer his quirky songs to his ballads..
though his ballads are always so achingly beautifully written.

i just hope he'll pass this phase of over-styling and just dress as his usual self..
its your songs that made you who you are, jay

johnny's birthday surprise!

yesterday we went to turf city's ah yat seafood restaurant!
to celebrate johnny's birthday, joy(his gf) had us all to be there to surprise him.

and to throw in a good dose of surprise, we went to the extent of hiding under the table just to burst out and sing a happy birthday song to johnny! haha!

it was really hilarious as the other patrons kept laughing at us and we were all cramped underneath the table. think gerry really had to strain his back as he was the tallest and biggest among us, hoot!

we ordered many, many sea creatures for our dinner! it was worth it as ah yat's seafood prices are only half price during weekdays!! and the food is really yummy and fresh.
really, really fresh.

we had giant oysters, clams, fish, crabs, duck, abalone mushrooms, fresh prawns, drunken prawns...
and everything was like enormous!!

before the surprise started, whilst waiting for j&j to arrive, it seems like no one wants to listen to sean, ha!

yimei is not listening

neither is gerry

hmm, i think i listen to shijie better, lol!
(its all my imagination only! sean, we do listen to you ah!)

and then the hiding starts...

happy hidout

still not here..

ooh.. here they come!!

and....... surprise!!!

his shocked and 'are these really my friends?' expression and happy smile!!

so after all the bursting and singing, off we go to picked our dinner!
so, so hungry man!

at the unqiue seafood market

our clams...
and ladies & gentlemen, i present to you...
qx weird creatures
yet very tasty for our dinner plates

we have:

kermit made an apperance too,
but we let him go.. for now, ha!

eels aka yewwwwwww

they don't bite, seriously..

meet lobercrab!!

a mutant of lobster and crab, he is your neighbourhood best choice for dinner, haha!

and these must be a confused fish.
it swims on its side but the eyes and mouth are all at the top of its side!

the giant lobster, grandfather to lobercrab..

and now, i present to you our sumptious dinner!!








this looks like start of dinner, but actually we're all very filled and satisfied, ;p

oh! i must recommend my favourite dish of the day!!
its this fried minced duck with beans wrapped with lettuce thats so very delicious!!
the lettuce is so fresh and crispy and paired with the savoury minced duck, the taste is just so heavenly!! i had many helpings of it, lol!!

the dinner was really worth it!
and so the day being halloween, we head off to dempsey after our dinner to get in to the spirit of halloween too..

we went to ben's & jerry's wanting to chill, but an awful band was playing there, haha!!
so we walked a little further before we went to a wine place to sit and enjoy......
to enjoy the aircon!! hahahahaha...

well, we did order a bottle of wine to go with the aircon, ha!
it was really fun just to sit and have dinner with friends.
to laugh, joke and tease along with everyone..

i hope johnny will enjoy his today too!!
(today is his actual birthday)
