Bright sunny day.

H decided to do something(finally) during the long hols. We both are great planners but even greater procrastinator. Blaming the weather lah, blaming the time lah, blaming me lah(for having to work the next day!). But we did get out of the house this time. After ‘thousand days’ of planning.

Cycling @ East Coast; was a feat. Is a feat. Sore thumb lah, sore betis lah, sore this lah sore that. Over you!

Liltornado smiled cause he didnt have to cycle one end of EC to the other! Muka happy je! MakBapak dia yang penat kayuh! He enjoyed the view, sipping water, cui girls, dogs, aunties watever..

Dark clouds appeared once in a while but it didnt rain.We snapped some good sun, had a great time playing the sand with the liltornado, who went barefoot most of the times and made the little one very happy, i hope. 🙂

I think H planned this outing because (i personally think) it has always been his dream to bring his kid for a cycling outing like this. H’s been talking about planning this outing ever since Liltornado was a baby. He was genuinely happy and having fun with the little one at the back, like this photo i took while the sun was setting.

And it has always been my personal dream since young to see this very picture one of my husband and kid, if i ever had a kid one day. 🙂 Alhamdullilah for good days such as these and for the  better ones ahead.

Met up the girls that day. I actually wore something ordinary,but with converse. Oh im in love with my converse so much! 🙂

First up was N.O.A. She’s had preens on!! Cool ke aper sia! I didnt know what are u conscious about. You looked great(as per normal) Is that a skirt or a dress NOA? She tops it up with black stockings with black sequinned flats. Bravo bravo. Keep up the good work .. kwa! 😛

Im so in love with M’s style. She always never has to try hard but she always get it right. I think she’s so lucky to have a proportionate figure.She wore a simple dress which costs so cheap yet still looks good, with a pretty navy jacket over it.

I love the bag we got her!! That is so M! 🙂 I love it that she doesnt have to show too much skin yet still she’s got that style. Tsk. Envy can?

I had a dress from CottonOn on with a cardigan over it. Had my black skinny jeans folded up. I wore a simple dirty-green belt to somehow match the sneakers. I didnt know where im going with this look but I felt comfortable in them.

Most importantly, we all feel good. Right girls? 🙂

Girls..

Found this on sm’s lj. And i want to share it.

This one’s for the girls who you can take home to mom, but won’t because it’s easier to sleep with a whore than foster a relationship; this is for the girls who have been led on by words and kisses and touches, all of which were either only true for the moment, or never real to begin with.

This is for the girls who have allowed a guy into their head and heart and bed, only to discover that he’s just not ready, he’s just not over her, he’s just not looking to be tied down; this is for the girls who believe the excuses because it’s easier to believe that it’s not that they don’t want you, it’s that they don’t want anyone.

This is for the girls who have had their hearts broken and their hopes dashed by someone too cavalier to have cared in the first place; this is for the nights spent dissecting every word and syllable and inflection in his speech, for the nights when you’ve returned home alone, for the nights when you’ve seen from across the room him leaning a little too close, or standing a little too near, or talking a little too softly for the girl he’s with to be a random hookup.

This is for the girls who have been used and abused, who have endured what he was giving because at least he was giving something; this is for the stupidity of the nights we’ve believed that something was better than nothing, though his something was nothing we’d have ever wanted.

This is for the hugs you’ve received from your female friends, for the nights they’ve reassured you that you are beautiful and intelligent and amazing and loyal and truly worthy of a great guy; this is for the despair you all felt as you sat in the aftermath of your tears, knowing that that night the only companionship you’d have was with a pillow.

i thought the words hit jackpot. it’s just the words i have in mind for ma girls, some whom have hit their lowest pits, and some who have bounced back stronger than before.

imho, best friends should never draw a line between them. whats the use of calling urself a bff/good friend/childhood bff/close friend if u want to have the line visible felt. what’s the meaning of best friends to you? to me, a best friend is someone whom i can share my darkest moments with, goofiest moments with, happiest moments with and blah moments with. im not scared to be scolded by them, to do something and be frowned upon by them, to ask advises(stupidest or lamest whichever) from them, to know they care and to let them know i care. if u cry, we’ll cry together, if u’re happy, we’ll be happy for u too. doesnt mean if im sad, u cant be happy and be around me. im just saying that bffs stick together. no matter what shit each of us r going through, let us know. Care and share? No more meh??

just sayin..

not a big deal… but.

I was a wee bit brave (Im a boring person fashion-wise normally) last Wednesday. Not that i looked cool, but i felt good wearing my converse sneakers with the leggings with that dress I’d usually wear with my boring old jeans.

so much so that I asked H to take a photo of me that day. >.<  Had to crop my face cause im shy like that. The other girls are better dresser than i am so i thought why not i try and be brave like them. I didn’t know how to hide my big calf, so i tried so hard not think about whether there’ll b people who will stare at them in the mrt.  So conscious! That’s why i always go with jeans. Easy and safe.

I was quite happy when H was able to pick me up from work since he finished work early. That meant i need not take the train and kept on thinking about my huge calf! 🙂 But it threatened to rain soon after we reached East Coast Park so we went home after our ‘mini’ date.

So that’s the end of my short-lived fashion trial.

(Not a big deal of an entry but i wore leggings outside my comfort zone lei! That ought to deserve a whole post! Cause I’D NEVER WORE LEGGINGS OUTSIDE MY HOME EVER. -_-‘)

Play overload.

少年よ (A YO)(A BOY)

Nights in Rodanthe

I had this book in my wardrobe awhile back. J lend it to me to read it but i thought it had a boring title and the wordings didnt look attractive to me. So it took me ages to actually really sit down and read it properly. But I loved every bit of it. Regretted that i didnt take effort to start reading it while the movie was in the cinemas back then. But i managed to catch it online and it was as wonderfully scripted as the book.

Summary:
Two unhappy people’s lives become entwined when they have a life changing romance. Adrienne is a woman who’s trying to decide whether to stay in her unhappy marriage or not. Her life changes when Paul, a doctor who is traveling to reconcile with his estranged son, checks into an inn in a North Carolina beach town where she is staying.

One sentence – It’s never too late for second chances. Agreed!

But little did i expect it came with so much more twist and before i realised it, tears rolled n i was sobbing with heartache. Paul, played by Richard Gere, offered so much more than a companion to Adrienne. A second chance of love and thus made living more worthwhile when it seemed the world was about to close in on her. But Paul left a little later to find his son and they promised to keep in touch, and from there onwards, fate decided to step in. 😥


the inn, which belongs to Adrienne’s friend. She was taking care of the inn.

It’s a nice movie to watch, gives you a little smile and reminds you of the sweeter things in life. Richard and Diane made this movie enjoyable and were lovely on-screen together, it’s worth the watch.

Definitely a must read and a must watch. When u’re not feeling sappy that is.

Adrienne Willis: I know you’ve only ever known your father and me. And I love Jack, because he is your father. But there’s another kind of love, Amanda. One that gives you the courage to be better than you are, not less than you are. One that makes you feel that anything is possible. I want you to know that you could have that. I want you to hold out for it.
