Leap Year’s Nostalgia

… and I gladly, did.

Sweet, awesome, out-of-this-world, memorable and romantic.

Totally worth waiting up super damn bloody early to spend it in an unconventional way. He called it  Team Awesome Time, a Leap Year special episode to only be reignited again, Insha Allah four years down the road until the end of time.

Hearts to the love 🙂

Goodbye Bear, Hello Sunshine

I was browsing through the web and I came across a rather bemusing quote which I ought to share in my WP:

 I noticed that as much as I am very happy where I am now, I keep finding myself wanting to check the ex’s FB to see who is the girl after me to the point that I’ve reached a stalker stage that I had to stop myself short.

I mean, it wouldn’t be fair to Sunshine to hear me whining about my findings right? I’ve decided to leave all the whining to Hubby whose seen the ex with me through our good and bad times so I inadvertently cut all my connections to the ex in What’sApp, FourSquare and in the future, Facebook.

I’m not checking up on him as I am thinking of going back to him. I am just fascinated that therein lies a man who actually says no to me after a year of supposedly loving me. I’m just amazed by how fickle sometimes love can be.

Like the saying, one man’s meat is another man’s poison.

I’m not gunned down by the fact that he’s seeing someone new; neither am I comparing with the current sunny state of my love. Given a choice, I wished I met Sunshine way before my numerous heartbreaks as at least that’ll mean that I spent more of my time smiling and being in blissful state like now as compared to spending it wallowing in sorrow or anger.

So yes, the ex was the first man to dump me.

Wow, congratulations to that Mister for having the guts but really, you could’ve honestly done in in a better fashion rather than walking away and feigning contact with me as I smell cowardice in you somehow.  But whatever it is, I still wish you well and when I look back at the quote in this post, I can’t help but agree. He is an old item, I should just cast him far, far away and let someone less perfect than me take ownership of him.

After all, he is just a bunch of crap not worthy of my time nor love.

The next one is for you, boy. You left, your loss. I’m going to make it Sunshine’s gain.

I’m happy to announce that from this moment on, I shan’t post anything more with regards to my past. I am getting bored of brooding over a bear who doesn’t deserve me.

Look out for sappy, mushy, sticky, lovey-dovey posts about Sunshine which is all over my FourSquare & What’sApp. He’s all about positivity, baby!

Heh 🙂

A real man is the kind of man a woman wants to give her life to, is one who will respect her dignity, who will honour her like valuable treasure she is. A real man will not attempt to rip her precious pearl from it’s protective shell, or persuade her with charm to give away treasure prematurely, but he will wait patiently until she willingly gives him the prize of her heart. A real man will cherish and care for that prize forever.

Explaining Myself

And I can’t agree less.

I moved on and wrote it out in a page of my history in this site and when the next morning sun arrived, the world seemed like so much more of a rosy place to live in. I’m in a very happy place now, I have to thank myself for taking the bold step into the unknown and still be brave enough to want to live my life in my own terms without having to answer to anyone. We are all responsible for our own shot at happiness. Seize it while you can before loneliness and single-hood robs you off the right to be happy. When that day comes, you will be a walking debt of regret. It all lies in your hands, you have the power to your own life; don’t let anybody else tell you what to do with it.

Nobody said being single was going to be easy. But nobody said it wouldn’t be fun either.

😉

L O V E in simple words

I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you for the part of me that you bring out.

– Elizabeth B Browning

Eventually, you will come to understand
that love heals everything,
and love is all there is.  

The journey may take many lifetimes,
but you will complete it.
It is impossible not to complete it.
It is not a question of if but of when.

Every situation you create
serves this purpose.

Every experience you encounter
serves this purpose.

Daylight Robbery

I was reading the papers recently and the last bidding exercise for the COEs of car prices are at a sky-high rate of $60,000 for cars less than 1600 CC. Cars above 1600 CC are going at $42,000 and the rates are expected to climb all the way till Chinese New Year next year !

At the rate they are going, my dream Honda hatchback will easily set me back a grand $80,000 while it is only running on a 1400 CC engine while my ultra-dream Cooper S or BMW 3 Coupe can easily set me back a whopping quarter million ! As a form of comparison, my 2nd brother’s car which he bought for $55,000 five years ago now costs a whopping $75,000 ! The latter price used to be the cost of a continental brand 1400CC car !

It’s daylight robbery for the automobile sector but people are still buying cars ! Where do all these people get such money to make such big-ass investments like these ?

Tell me what are the chances that the COEs will ever drop to lower levels ? NEVER.

Ask me what are the chances that I’ll buy a car in the future ? NEVER.

Such gross prices just to gain that notch in personal convenience, I’d rather go public all my life.

 

Digging Out The Bad Stuffs

Here’s my new favorite quote. The bonus is that it rhymes ! :

Your life is your garden
and your thoughts are your seeds,
so if your life isn’t awesome
you’ve been watering the weeds.

True isn’t it ? Well, if you’re keen, my life hasn’t been all that bed of roses I have envisioned in my self-riddled fantasy imagination. But…. I am still thankful as I’ve not seen so much sunshine days in my life in the longest time. Thanks be to God for giving me the best things in life anyone can wish and pray for.

The Thirty Second Quiz

Don’t bother getting a pen and paper… just read… if you can’t
answer them, just keep going.

1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.

2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.

3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America contest.

4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer prize.

5. Name the last five Academy Award winners for Best Actor and Actress.

How did you do?

The point is, none of us remembers the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They’re the best in their fields. But the applause dies. Awards tarnish. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.

Now here’s another quiz. See how you do on this one:

1. Name three teachers who aided your journey through school.

2. Name three friends who helped you through a difficult time.

3. Name five people who have taught you something worth while.

4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.

5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.

Easier?

The lesson?

The people who make a difference in your life aren’t the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They’re the ones who care.
