You Know You Want To

My brother & our cousin, Josh. I know they look adorable.

Hellooo..sorry I havent been a constant updated blogger at the moment. Busy bee so yea. Well today was interesting, went to a quick orientation on projection for church. Aghhhh so many wires & I happen to be the primary in-charge next week. Well thank goodness, I know the ins and outs of laptops & softwares but I still cant help but get the jitters. Hahaha. Wish me luck! :)

Oh, how I love fall / pre-winter season. A reason to layer up clothes, wear boots & just dress up more. :P Hahaha. But then again, anytime is a good time to dress up. It's just how you work the clothes, right? :)

Good Girl Gone Bad

dress, Lan Z at some thrift shop :: belt, Centrepoint (came along with this black skirt) :: earrings, Centrepoint

I know, I am sooorrry. The pics are so fail, they ended up blurry. :( The result of my "photographer" / younger brother falling asleep when I needed someone to talk pics of me. Hahaha. Well atleast you can sort of tell the design of the dress im wearing. It was actually longer, like below my knee (which is something im not used to) so i pulled it up & made it more of my usual length. :))

 Anyways it has been a busy week for my family & I. We've been regularly attending seminars about First Sons, First Daughters. Great seminar, straight to the point & something I can relate to. :)

This lil slice of cheesecake was delish thought not your ordinary sweet cake. It was more zesty (lime & orange, I think) plus I think it had a bit of wine mixed into it. Hmmm?? Hahahaha.

My brother's failed attempt in his first ever cup of coffee. He diluted it with so much milk, it tasted like milk with coffee & not coffee with milk. :)) Hahahah.

Father's Love.

1. Father’s love is Liberating.
2. Father’s love is Giving.
3. Father’s love is Comapassionate.
4. Father’s love is Sheltering.
5. Father’s love is Extravagant.

We are first a son and daughter of God before we are anything else in this world.

Forever Was So Many Different Things

taken from Sarah Dessen.

I finished reading the book two days back while waiting for someone to get back from his weekend exercise routine. My fave parts in the book ::

"Okay,” he said. He took a breath. “What would you do, if you could do anything?”
I took a step toward him, closing the space between us. “This,” I said. And then I kissed him. Kissed him. There, in the middle of the street, as the world went on around us.


That was the thing. You just never knew. Forever was so many different things. It was always changing, it was what everything was really all about. It was twenty minutes, or a hundred years, or just this instant, or any instant I wished would last and last. But there was only one truth about forever that really mattered, and that was this: it was happening.

Tumbling on Tumblr.

So after careful consideration boredom & wanted randomness, I finally have a Tumblr account. :D So yeaaay me. Hahaha. No worries, I am not leaving behind my blog love :) Tumblr is for my hmmm more, random little quirks n thoughts on stuff. :)

Check it out. Jewel In The Sand.

Tumbling down Tumblr?

This would be how I currently feel (not look) today, "blaagghhhhhh..."
Well more like just this moment. Tired of sorts that I can't seem to understand or pinpoint why. Hahaha. I've been thinking 'bout having a Tumblr account now but more cause, I could put the random stuff there than here. Hahaha. Atleast here, it could be more focused on fashion, photos & design. Tumblr would just be the crazy side of me. Well I havent pushed through with making an account. I somewhat just stared at the tumblr signup screen. Hahaha. Well we shall see what I shall do 'bout it. :D

Saw this adorable post on a Tumblr account, Reminisce*It.

I'll Always Be With You

This was what errr we, the Group 1 did in class. We had to write down what we thought of with the word FAMILY. Well we wrote a few things down, the rest I added later on. :D

My brother has this crazy need to dis-assemble this guitar, rewire it & retouch the parts..Thank goodness it isn't his but oh is he so tempted to play havoc on it. Hahaha.

I just love Fridays. It's the last day of the week & that means a start of a new week right after. :) Plus it means rising up early in the morning to travel 110km to church and just feeling happy to go there. :) Also there are the people I see get to see that one time of the week. :) Not to forget Mrs. Stapp's delish chocolate chip bars (even my two cousins love 'em).
Something to look forward to this week, Oasis (a week long seminar). My parents want my brother & I to tag along this year and well the speaker doesnt seem boring at all so I think, I will be tagging along this year. :) Hmmm interesting week. New things to learn. :D

Well I hope y'all enjoying the rest of your weekend & to those whose weekends just started.
Have a great time! :D

Take The Leap With Me

Secret 12411..It has been over a year and I am still missing her. No words can describe how painful it is without her by my side. She will never know how much I love her. But it's okay... It doesn't really matter if I am the reason for her happiness. As long as she is happy, it's worth it. Really...

I mean when I read this, I couldnt help but go "awwww". Cmon we all know how it is when a girl gets hurt & lovesick but a guy to say this. Well I hope it's a guy who wrote it. Hahaha. Every girl deserves a guy who would feel that much love for her, but ofcourse he better not let her go at all. I know, that's someone I want for me. :)

Yess, today I am in lovieey goeey happy mode. :>

Wishing you all a happy weekend to those who have weekends now & well a happy rest of the week for the rest.

Happy Birthday to my friend Ridge!! I know, you know how much I love your "shemxcy" dancing skills & sunglasses :P Have a great birthday dude! :D More blessings, great health & well have a happy life. :)

Hugs & Kisses..XoXo

Close your eyes and step into
the rest of our lives."

I got to see a birthday vid my friends made for a friend of mine. It's adorable, I mean for dudes to do something like that. Hands-down, I loved the vid. :) Plus my bestfriend looked really funny, I cant wait to tease him for it. Hahaha. Peace bez. I wish I had friends who would do a vid for me too. Ehem it isn't too late by the way, my bday is in like a couple weeks. :D Hahahah. I just miss my friends, cant wait till I see em soon. :D

I Currently can't stop listening to Never Knew I Needed by Ne-Yo.

for the way you changed my plans
for being the perfect distraction
for the way you took the idea that i have
of everything that i wanted to have
and made me see there was something missing

for the ending of my first begin
(ooh yeah yeah)(ooh yeah yeah)
and for the rare and unexpected friend
(ooh yeah yeah)(ooh yeah yeah)
for the way you're something that i never choose
but at the same time something i don't wanna lose
and never wanna be without ever again (oh oh)

you're the best thing i never knew i needed
so when you were here i had no idea
you're the best thing i never knew i needed
so now it's so clear i need you here always

Simple Things in Life = Happiness

I am the type of person that gets happy over the most random, simple things in life.

Like how my adorable dog, Fifi cuddles in between the covers of my parent's blanket.
Like how everyday, you make me smile with your nonsense funny remarks or sweetness.
Like how I randomnly take a quiz on facebook & the results just make me smile. :)

Apparently Im born on a Tuesday. :)

Birthday Month <3

Yeaaaay!! :D It's finally November, my birthday month! :)) Hahahah. Now this would be the time where I have this whole list written down & posted up for all to see, of what I'd love to get on my birthday. Well I wanna do this year different (I think?). So obviously my plan is not to buy myself anything this year (it's not like I have a constant cash flow at the moment..Hahaha). No buying anything for myself for my birthday, no matter how tempting it is. :)) Hahaha. Instead, I will enjoy every minute of every day of November and that shall be my gift to myself. What have I got myself into??? Hahahaha. :)) Plus since it is birthday month, I want to make sure that I write everyday on this month. No matter how random my thoughts (like today) are, I shall (have) to write. :D
