Sum Ting Long

I wanted to make a card for one of best friend's birthday and it took me 3 days to do this. I name this card "Sum Ting Long" and the reason why is very obvious. Hahaha.

Sigh..... 灵感啊,灵感 .....回来咯, 回来咯 (pronounced in canto as in "fan lei lo, fan lei lo...")

What we believe....

picture from here

Got tagged in facebook by my sis in law on this note. I find it so true and would like to share it here :)

A Birth Certificate shows that we were born
A Death Certificate shows that we died
Pictures show that we lived!
Relax . . . And read this slowly..

Just because two people argue,
it doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
it doesn't mean they do love each other.

I Believe...
We don't have to change friends if
we understand that friends change.

No matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you every once in a while and
you must forgive them for that..

True friendship continues to grow, even over the longest distance..
The same goes for true love.

I Believe..
You can do something in an instant
that will give you heartache for life.

I Believe...
That it's taking me a long time
to become the person I want to be.

I Believe...
You should always leave loved ones with loving words.
It may be the last time you see them.

I Believe...
You can keep going long after you think you can't.

I Believe...
We are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I Believe...
Either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I Believe...
Money is a lousy way of keeping score..

I Believe...
My best friend and I, can do anything, or
nothing and have the best time.

I Believe...
Maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had
and what you've learned from them and
less to do with how many birthdays you've celebrated.

I Believe..
It isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.
sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I Believe...
No matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesn't stop for your grief.

I Believe...
Our background and circumstances may have
influenced who we are, but.
we are responsible for who we become..

I Believe...
Two people can look at the same thing
and see something totally different.

I Believe...
Your life can be changed in a matter of
hours by people who don't even know you.

I Believe...
Even when you think you have no more to give,
when a friend cries out to you -
you will find the strength to help.

I Believe...
Credentials on the wall do not make you a
decent human being

'The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything;
they just make the most of everything.

Mum's Birthday (Part 6)

My dad also organized a 'party' in church for mum's birthday. They had this gardening / cleaning event going on in the afternoon and after the event, he organize a dinner and a simple celebration. He went to book this agar-agar cake himself too. I think its very sweet :) I wish my husband next time will still be this sweet when we're 50 already.

I got a super short video of the birthday song, with jiang shi mu playing the piano. Hehehe. Camera went out of batt. Luckily I shot some pictures before then already :)

Mum's Birthday (Part 5) be continued on my mum's birthday. I know its been a month already and I still have something to post. :)

This is her birthday dinner, which I invited "my" friends instead of her friends. Hehehe. Ok la, family friends la. Anyways, I invited Ruidi, Sandy & Hui to come over for dinner. My picture shows some homecook delicacy which I so crave for right now - Mum's sweet & spicy BIG headed prawn & claypot fish head, and also grandma's fried rice. There was a sour spicy hot soup which I forgot to take picture. I joined in the fun by cooking the guinness stout chicken. Supposed to be Heniken chicken but my assistant (ruidi) thought guinness stout is also 'beer', the term I used when I requested. Hahaha. Well, it kinda turns out for the best. I'm telling you it tasted pretty good using guinness stout. Of course, because the cook 'you liao' also la. AHEM... ;p

Neways, so much for story telling, just share some pictures with you lah.. Hehe.

Order from a Stranger

p/s: as for the picture quality, haiz... speechless.... why so 冲动?

Happy Birthday with Love

This is for a dear friend of mine, Erica. I met Erica in my ex company when I first came to KL. Erica has been a great friend, always taking care of me - inside & outside of work. When I haven't got my car, she bought breakfast for me. She was also always taking me out for dinner. She bought me many birthday / christmas gifts, and also whenever she travels, she'll buy a souvenir for me. At work, she has given me great advice, and has been a great companion and colleague. It's really a blessing to have known a friend like her. Happy Birthday Babe, best wishes ya :)
