A season of joy, love and peace

The last 2 weeks of Dec are always fantastic. It is especially so for me this year. And I know, subsequently, the years ahead will be that or more too. I’m very very thankful to the dear people I’ve seen, met and connected. How much more can I say? When I’m just myself, a simple gal with nothing much to offer? How much more can I say, I love these people who see me, and care for me?

I’m thankful. Very thankful to the lovely people I’ve encountered. I’m so glad, that my white Christmas will soon be here, and Twinkle Stars shouldn’t be that far off now…I’m finally seeing part of the Alps…I love snow, the warmth that snow brings, close to my heart. I want to hug snow, to feel snow on my palms. How about it?

It’s really a miracle that the paths seem to light up for me…and I’m at some crossroads…Thank God that flexibility is my strength…but really, it shouldn’t be too far off, should it?

I don’t just see one. Others who don’t know me well or at all, always think I am just stuck with one. I never allow myself to be stuck. Why? Because I see, that my life is filled with many beautiful choices. Who can’t? Unless they like to wallow in self-pity and trying to outcompete others for ‘dont know what desires’. Well, there’s a catch over here…the pyramid works and I see how it’s too crap. Some people just don’t have the brains to utilize. I wonder, u mean, they have never ask themselves why would she just feels irk about the other? Sometimes, it’s better to close both eyes, be an ostrich, I didn’t see the history of pyramids, I don’t know for sure? Continue to see it in this way, and the life will just be built upon lies and deceptions and end result? Total freaky fake. What’s the point? Hasn’t it ever cross your mind that what u see right in front of u is just an illusion u choose to built?

Shall I say, that Inception is a superb movie? I love it very very very very much ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s the most fantastic movie I watched this year. If u view it deeper, u’ll realise that actually, it’s bringing up certain issues in this world, the ironies of life, how people never choose to get out of the dreams they created and failed…it’s perfectly fine to have dreams, to build your dreams and to achieve it. Likewise, it’s perfectly fine too, to fail in your dream. For those who actually jeer at you, stand up, tell them to get out. There’s no need for you to be too upset with what others say, because it’s your dream that you built! And if you ever fail, do know how to get out. Never allow yourself to wallow in self-pity and nonsensical emos.

Who never fails in life? It’s a matter of choice whether you want to get out.

Seriously, this gnome is too rounded. Haha, reminded me now…Gnomeo and Gjuliet? Hahaha….By which any other name will smell as sweet as rose… ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, Snow ๐Ÿ™‚

In the spirit of Christmas :)

Uberly ๅฏๆ„›ใ„!

Very happy…the spirit of Christmas, the music and the senses ๐Ÿ™‚ For the Japanese, they don’t really celebrate Christmas. However, Christmas gives them the opportunity to be ‘romantic’ at such a time. And yes, the freezing cold season only makes them wanna snuggle close ๐Ÿ˜›

Okie, focus, focus, focus! I always need to remind myself on this. Many times, I get rather distracted. Maybe that’s why I like to surround myself with no radio noise. I like the zen style, but then too much of that could make me go O_o hahaha! Well, to be sitting and sipping a cup of hot tea, I think that’s super relaxing!

It’s interesting how God always likes to point out to me, hey look! Okie okie…I still need some time. I’ve so many stuffs on hand to settle…and the cool days sorta sent me to hibernation at some point in time. Funny? Maybe…but I can really see myself hibernating. Anyway, i’ve always liked to conserve my energy. But then, now I ask myself, what do I do with that accumulated energy? Store it for another one year, and use it for the next 2? Thereafter, store again for a year…then use it for at least 4??? Hmmm….really need the time and space to talk the plans out. Too many stuffs on my mind. I have bird brain, hahaha!

Contemplating on the phone. Sigh. Struggling? Oh my, how will I ever struggle with such a minor decision? But then, it’s not totally uncalled for, I do want a white phone! White, pure, serene, peace, innocent, intelligent, wise…I rem the white furry owl that I saw in Asahiyama. I love white furry owl. Just like I love white horse…and I love Husky alot! Basically, I love most dogs. I rem I used to be very close to this neighbour who had about 5 dogs in the house. And the dogs would always wriggle around me and sniffing. I feel very happy when I see the dogs. Likewise now….

The musical set me thinking about certain things. I rem the ones I went for consultation…yes, I’m being wilful, but it’ll still be back to square one. I want to travel. I want to see the places and people I love.

Must be the season of Christmas, that’s why I have several pleasant encounters. Went to a jewellery shop and looked at the items. Was trying to find something simple and not that fanciful. Saw one and was almost decided on it, when the SA happily told me that there was another design which he thought would be my expectation and taste. And yes, indeed it suited me very well ๐Ÿ™‚ The best part, it was so much cheaper than the one I almost paid for. Such a nice SA.

A SA from another store was also very nice. The auntie helped me to hold my reserved items even though not all were from her department. It really saved me plenty of hassles, as the cashier initially told me I had to ask the respective departments. I really almost scratched my head…well, it’s so nice to meet nice and good people.

God is good ๐Ÿ™‚ Just that sometimes, I really could miss the big picture. Must be stamps on my eyes lol. I’m thankful that there are many wonderful people around, despite the seemingly negative world. Mostly, I’m all smiles. If you are with me and I don’t, am I putting on a facade? Most likely it’s due to the fact I didn’t want to. It’s straight from the heart.

Smiles ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s so tiring to frown! ๐Ÿ˜€

Nissen Cup Noodles Christmas Tree!

Wow, a nice structure here. I like the structure of how they built it. It’s not easy, when you build a structure. Time and effort, you need that. Apart from these two, many people lacked, the critical and logical aspects of planning.

I love Lego. I always have the big picture in mind. It’s not easy to construct things, as according to what you have up on your mind. But it’s not unachievable. One can make it, but it’s really a matter of left and right brainers. I wouldn’t be able to fully understand a left brainer, neither would I be able to fully understand a right brainer. I am neither of them, I don’t know whether this is good for me. To be a centre-brainer. Oh well, it helps me in a way…

Maybe that’s why I don’t seem to have an elephant memory for things.

Anyway, so frustrated! This is absolutely lagging! The posts just went haywired! Grrrrr…. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

The jolly season is near!

This’s the season to be jolly Faralalalalalalala…

๐Ÿ™‚ I love Christmas! It’s the season of joy and giving! I love joy, and I love giving ๐Ÿ™‚

Been very busy getting all the stuffs and pressies. It’s not easy. We can’t just randomly pick a generic one to buy. Must really pick and choose wisely…I mean, carefully…else once the choice is made, no refund…what should you do if you want to refund? It won’t be for me. Because I don’t do refund. The problem with this place these days is, people think they can refund as and when they like. There are some countries which allow you to refund. And there are some brands in some countries which allow you to refund within a limited time with mo question asked. Oh well!

There was an incident which left quite a deep impression. I bought this particular luxury good in London. It’s a handbag with strap. I found it weird that it didn’t have any wrap around the strap, which should be the case if it’s new. Anyway, I was in a rush then, gotta catch my SQ flight, so I just bought it, along with a wallet. I would say that the wallet wasn’t that fantastic too as I found a defect thereafter but still negligible. Anyway, I sold the wallet at no loss after about 2 years ๐Ÿ™‚ okie, back to the handbag. When I was back to this homeland, I realised that it was actually a returned item. I was caught in a dilemma, should I report this or should I just let it go and use it anyway?…

I was chosen to be a prefect since young. And for many many years, I was still chosen to be a prefect by different people. It’s just me. I’m a computer, as what someone used to bark at me. And I did what a computer did.

And of coz in the end, I got a brand new piece with another big box and another carrier. Hahaha, it was such a good feeling after all, the staff were very nice about it, though I had to highlight it very logically and very explicitly in order for them to get it. They took some while to digest nevertheless. They can’t manipulate me anyway, so a new piece I received.

But lately, they don’t have much nice items up. They are different from Coco…Coco can keep having the similar reissues over and over again, and hers are such a classic! The others…hmmm…I do like Dior ๐Ÿ™‚

Saw a well-dressed couple. They were eating with us along the tall tables. What irked me was they expected the same service as they would in a restaurant. They simply can’t be bothered to clear up. Heylo, Mr Prince and Little Princessy huh? I think, people who don’t wash their plates are either irresponsible in the make or haughty thinking they are still in the colonial era. I am not referring to Caucasians. Rather, people generally. Subtle signs you can pick up. Maybe once, you can close one eye. Twice? I think that’s some kind of concern, because you would have to close both eyes if you don’t want to handle it. Hence, the decisive moment is at the 2nd. Number 2. That second chance.

Actually, saying is easy. For me, most of the time it depends on my mood. Isn’t it funny, when the highly logical self actually likes to play according to her mood? That’s when the other parts of the planets come into play. I’m always amazed with the solar system as well as the celestial planets. Okie, since when have I been studying them? Definitely more than two decades ago…oops!

Salmon California Maki?

One of the items from my platter of ๆกใ‚Šๅฏฟๅธ. I miss Japan so much that I can’t help but immersing myself with the familarity here. I wish to do more. But there’s so much I can, over here.

I hate this shot. Blurry. Really regretted buying the Android instead of upgrading with the iPhone 4. Argh!! A case of different likes and dislikes. I love the iPhone interface. Oh! ๐Ÿ™‚ So how long do I have to wait?…my iPhone is still working very well, just that sometimes it may go rather haywire…but it’s fine, the basic functions are well, am I whining here? The iPhone 4 does look more appealing, so does the Galaxy Tab lol. So many wide selection these days, the newer models seem to be even much better than the previous. Wow, amazing select!

You do know at the back of your mind, this nagging voice within you, telling you, hey look, why in the world do you want to get an iPhone 4 when your iPhone is in proper? Yes, now is iPhone 4, 9mths later, it’ll be iPhone 5, so on and so forth….it’s never-ending. For me, I’m surrounded with many who use the newer versions of iPhones. Why would I badly want to get the iPhone 4? I’m not absurd. I might as well wait for my keitai to be here, just like Panasonic ๐Ÿ™‚

Sometimes, it’s just a fad. Sometimes, it’s a phase you just have to outgrow it. Only a matter of time. To me, I actually thought that Samsung looked very keitai-ish…but it’s just not the same.

Well, I am not done with getting all the Christmas presents. Really very tiring. But I thoroughly enjoy the process. It’s always a joy to give ๐Ÿ™‚

I miss the snowy Christmas in Japan. The time and event were just simply romantic………

Stories I heard

When I was young, I had this wild but lovely imagination. I could be friends with Hansel and Gretal, just that I wasn’t a candy girl. I actually wished that I could live in a house that’s made of cupcakes, biscuits, cookies, brownies, scones, icing cakes and such…I thought that wouldn’t be a bad idea. To live in such a house ๐Ÿ™‚

I read the story about the woman who lived in a shoe house with her family. I loved the story and imagined myself living in one too. I would love to have that as the shape of my house, with windows along the upper part of my booty house. Wouldn’t that be nice? Unless it’s smelly ๐Ÿ™‚

I read the story about Jack and the Beanstalk. And for several days or weeks, I would stare right into the sky, and wondered, would I ever get to find a tree that extends all the way up to the sky? And how would it be like? But I don’t like the giant and sort.

I read the folktales of the Japanese. Somehow to me, they made plenty of sense. And I love how each time there’s really some interesting and touching twist to the end… I read so many……

When I read Enid Blyton’s stories on the Famous Five series, I loved them so much that I aspired to be like them. Or perhaps, Nancy Drew made an even earlier influence on me? I couldn’t remember. I like Sherlock Holmes as well.

I read. I eat. I play. I study. I hardly take an interest on other stuffs apart from these. Oh yah, I love computers since young. They were fantastic. I learnt GW Basic, Logo, Lotus, Wordperfect, and some of the Apple Macintosh stuff. And hence I was thrilled when I was appointed to train my peers thereafter. It was so fun…

Now? I think I’m still just as how I was when I was happiest ๐Ÿ™‚ I read alot, and I have handled tons of philosophical and psychological literature. I love the works on Socrates, and how the systems were established. I love Freud, Skinner, Piaget, Vgotsky, Carl Jung and Maslow. Though they didn’t all agree on the same things, I enjoyed reading how they set out their clinical studies. My friend used to joke that, these were my friends…hahaha. But then, I started young…when I was in Primary Four, I started to read about one or two of them! Looks like I must have been a real nerd.

I believe that we all have a world we want to live in. It’s hard when at the back of your mind, you know what you are seeing don’t tally with what you know. It’s worse when what you know doesn’t tally with how you feel…because you can cheat yourself to the moon that it’s not the truth.

I myself love to read stories. And I do admire J.R. Rowling for having money rolling in such a way. I aspire to be like her, though I used to like the Bronte sisters. But how can I be like the Brontes? Gotta be realistic in this world, I can’t just have airy-fairy ideas.

Well, I have too many likes. Looks like I have to fall back on my childhood hobby. Since I did them well, why shan’t I continue with it? Since people complimented it, why not I go ahead and set forth this dream? I’m just so thrilled that even the Japanese like it. Hee…hee…

Maybe I gotta think of a proper proposal. Just praying that I don’t become so distracted with too many stuffs I’ve been wanting to do. I feel as if I’m like the sleeping dragon that has just awakened. Oops sounds like an ancestral land ๐Ÿ˜› But really, the kind of thrill and excitment, and the energy that follows, I think it’s really amazing.

Just that I’m still a procrastinator… I read. I eat. I play. I study. I seek and find. I think and decide. I plan and act. Oh, am I still a procrastinator then? Socrates, you would know the equation for this!

ๆ…ขๅŠๆ‹

My phone is rather ๆ…ขๅŠๆ‹ these days. Apart from the Panasonic I love deep deep, this is the 2nd phone I heart so much. I could never forget the thrill when after months of awaiting I finally got that Panasonic! It was my dream phone years ago. I was super duper happy to get it. Why? Coz it’s the only phone that resembles the keitai then! Wow, I really really love the phone so much. So much so that despite the battery has been getting so much weaker and I haven’t been using, I still refuse to throw it away. I know, I won’t ever throw it away. I like means I like. Very simple and straight. I love this Panasonic.

My current phone is ๆ…ขๅŠๆ‹. Funny right? Yup. Okie, it’s not that often. But maybe sometimes I might find fault with it…yet I know I won’t sell it off either…regardless of I might have another next year or the year after next. I’m that obstinate. I like means I like. Even if it’s obsolete, I still like it. Because I won’t ever forget the moment I first set eyes on it, and the subsequent experiences.

Years ago, I had SE’s first colored phone. I still rem when and where I bought it. The excitment that followed. However, thereafter, I felt sad. It was quite a disappointment. Super mini with super mini keyboard. Okie I have big fat thumb. So the keying process was a nightmare! In the end, I got so frustrated with it, and was quite happy that I could trade-in with that.

The HP ipad was a great phone to me, despite the laggy nature. I was thrilled that it made everything so much easier, I could just type in the minutes and seminar notes and had them printed out after some simple editing. Such a smooth process ๐Ÿ™‚ I think I still have it somewhere around…most likely all things are already kept in their respective places. Well, never mind, as long as I know that I have it ๐Ÿ™‚

I like the user-friendly Nokia. Unfortunately it’s a dummy phone to me and I don’t have any kick of using it. To me, it is….erh…just a phone. Got a few of those, but sold them away.

Oh yeah, I rem! I had this SE flip phone that came with a stylus. Couldn’t rem it’s name. But it’s horrible as well. I thought I would love it. I think that’s the last SE phone I would ever use. So happy when I managed to sell it off! What a relief! ๐Ÿ™‚

Maybe I used many others before. History of mobile phones ๐Ÿ™‚ I love cameras too ๐Ÿ™‚ and I’ve kept an instamax with me, since I was a toddler! Hahaha, I really like that camera. It’s my antique ๐Ÿ™‚

I dislike using earphones. To me, using it is a plain torture. I hate to have music stick right onto your ears. Yes, it seems to be exclusive, but I would rather let the music fill the air……and dance ๐Ÿ™‚

My next 2 items would be the stuffs that I’ve always wanted. Since young. And I’m gonna start them soon enough. At least one of them ๐Ÿ™‚ it may be a bit difficult, but then I am bent on realizing my dreams.

Haiz, quite a number of activities here…if I fill all in, I would be stifled with the lack of me-time. I really really need it. O_o This is still my top priority.

ๆ…ขๅŠๆ‹ I really know of one in the past who ๆ…ขๅŠๆ‹. And those were the days I enjoyed so much……

๐Ÿ™‚ I think of God and I thank Him for all His blessings ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a fact that I can’t deny…that God’s real to me ๐Ÿ™‚

๐Ÿ™‚ To have lovely thoughts brightens the soul ๐Ÿ™‚ To have happy thoughts brings smiles to many ๐Ÿ™‚ To have Godly thoughts sets forth God’s greatness ๐Ÿ™‚

A month of gadgets :)

I’m a gadget girl

Ermm…no, I haven’t really been scouting around for gadgets. The one I can just close one eye or both eyes to get is the ipad. The rest…Lumix…and nothing else. Ya, when can I get a Lumix? Sigh. Actually, this is really just a want. I have more important things on hand. Gotta get the blueprint first. I love to see the helicopter view. I hate to go down to details and just keep swimming in the minor unimportant sea of stuffs. I don’t understand why, but some people just don’t get it. It’s very very strange.
