  • 95% there! Or so I’d like to think…

    It’s been awhile since I updated anything about my wedding plans – and to sum it up…..

    Venue – Check.
    Drinks – Check.
    Flowers – Check.
    Band – Check.
    Cake – Check.
    Photographer – Check.
    Dress (even though I’ve been told it is absurd and for people with low IQ) – Check! Check! Check! Because I went for my second fitting, and it FITS! IT FITS! Phew! I was getting a bit worried about it not going to be able to fit.

    A place to live after the wedding – CHECK!

    I am getting a bit more anxious now even though everything is pretty much sorted out. I am not even going to start thinking about all the micro details that will be popping up as my wedding day nears.

    Positivity – Check.
    Smile – 1/2 Check.

    A couple of weeks ago I had trouble sleeping – and my mum told me it’s subconscious anxiety.

    I think she’s a wise woman.

    It’s MY big day?!Who am I kidding right?

    In the midst of all the different emotions (mostly being unreasonable, emotional, difficult, overly sensitive, crabby, moody, touch of crazy…..) I am going through (and there are also stories about issues and feelings…) , this man I am going to marry – is calm and so in control.

    He has so much more on his plate than I do – he has work, meetings and school – exams, assignments. And he’s there for me, to comfort me and remind me everything is going to be okay and make me feel all better again.

    The man I am marrying is amazing (and I am crazy in love with him) – Check.

  • Power Over Cervical Cancer

    Did you know… In Malaysia, cervical cancer is the 2nd most common cancer affecting women.

    I thought I know enough about cervical cancer – and was taking the necessary precautions… Only thing I was doing – I have a pap smear every year. Not enough…

    So, I took the Cervical Cancer Risk Test… and turns out I am at risk. Doesn’t hurt to find out more.

    Another thing to add to my ‘to-do’ list…

  • Wise words by Hermann Hesse

    I came across this and just so I can refer to this later, at some point…

    “You know quite well, deep within you, that there is only a single magic, a single power, a single salvation… and that is called loving. Well, then, love your suffering. Do not resist it, do not flee from it. It is your aversion that hurts, nothing else.”

  • My 31st

    Was probably one of the most scorching days this week.

    Now officially in my 30’s… Last year – I had just turned 30.

    My birthday was only a thought at the back of my mind because I really wasn’t planning anything special.

    And I had some wonderful friends wishing me well – and this thoughtful gesture truly touched me. I guess I must be special enough to have my friends remembering my birthday. And of course there was Facebook… and I got more well wishes.

    Starting now – I am going to try to remember as many birthdays that I can and make it a point to wish all my friends!

    And my mum sent me a lovely text; “Hi. Good morning birthday girl. It’s your birthday today so how would you like to celebrate? Happy Birthday and may God bless you always. Love you always, Mummy Bean.”

    And my girlfriends, Wendy and Dawn, got me the cutest cake which they say is so ‘me’.

    And I got to speak to my favourite sister! She’s been gone for too long now – and we’ve been emailing, and today when I spoke to her (first time since she left a couple of weeks ago) I felt like I missed her even more – if that was even possible. I may have been close to tears.

    Finally – can you see what I am holding in my hands? My birthday present from Sweet V. Almost had me in tears, and I would’ve cried too if I wasn’t trying so hard to not pee my pants and faint from excitement! Multi tasking; not one of my strongest points…

    I had a real kick ass 31st!

    I am indeed truly blessed. I am so happy to have my loved ones around me, to be loved, and to have great friends.

  • Twilight – with Cheeseburger

    I loved Twilight so much I went out and got all the books – and then I came across this (because I am so crazy about Twilight) which made me laugh out loud!

    Hang on Spider Monkey!
