N.Y.E

My hands were really smelly of (raw) meat and seafood when I was taking this picture because I just finished preparing for tonight's barbeque with family hahaha. How are you guys spending your NYE? I hope you all can spend the night joyfully with your loved ones without forgetting that every moment we have gone through was a blessing from God. Love you and see you in 2013! :)

To Those Who Look Down On People:

Don't try to make up your dark past by making other people's lives miserable too. I noticed that those who like to talk trash or make fun of other people are usually ones who were the victim back then. But if you know how terrible it feels, why do it on others? Being a former victim, you should have a big(ger) heart because you've been there and you wanna make sure it stops. So please, to those who think b*tching about other people - directly and indirectly - makes you look cool / smart / better, it definitely doesn't. It simply makes you the loser.

Practice on accepting that everyone has different standards, and that your view may not be mine. Bhinneka Tunggal Ika. Unity in diversity. Appreciate people, even behind their backs.

Stay Calm & Eat Cookies

The key to stay sane, positive and calm, is to set your expectations just right. Many times we feel disappointed, angry or sad because things didn't turn out the way we wish it would. And that happens because we expect too much. In life, things happen beyond what our brain can imagine. It is uncontrollable and can seem unbearable. But things will feel alright if we've prepared ourselves for anything that could happen. Because life isn't perfect, neither are we. So why expect things to run perfectly too? God has made the best plans for us, so just enjoy the ride no matter where it leads us to. People change so don't expect them to stay the same forever. Let us grow and become a better version of ourselves, with or without the support from people we wished we would always have. We lose and we gain people in our lives. Because maybe, there isn't enough space for too many people in our hearts. Expect life to be exciting, because it really is.

"Life is big, but I like my jewelry even bigger".

The sentence above perfectly describes Liat Ginzburg, an amazing jewelry designer. And not just bigger, but dreamy, playful, fun and loud. I fell deeply in love the moment I visited her website..:)

Liat herself was kind enough to send me one of her pieces, and I am officially a proud fan. Thank you so so much! :)

My Daily Motivations

  1. Come home and share my daily achievement with S no matter how small or insignificant.
  2. Stay positive and full of smiles to make Keenan happy and cheerful as well. Kids are scared of moody grumpy people, and they mirror what they see from adults.
  3. Come home early so that I still have time to chat with mom and dad.
  4. Eat healthy food and dress up nicely so I look good in my Instagram and blog photos :D
  5. Pray and stay close to God so that I know my life has a purpose and I never feel lost.
  6. Always be nice to other people because every good deed brings goodness to my own life.
  7. Regularly blog because it helps me keep track of my own life and its progress.
  8. Stay away from the wrong track because I might just die tomorrow and not have time to fix things.
  9. Always forgive because forgiving people stay young and happy.

Cheer UP!

Soooooo excited about this project! Just launched a new feature on my Up shop...the CHEER UP game! Yaayyyyy! Felt like adding some fun onto my website, so developing a game would make sense, right? ;p The game is only accessible via computer though...so can't play it from your phone.

Play the game here! :)

Tag You're It!


We all have problems. Times when we feel like killing ourselves. But there’s just simply bad days just like there are good days. And it takes both to make a person. So take it easy and enjoy life. Bad days end up fun if you have a sense of humor.

Little Things That Made Us Happy #12

It's been a while since we updated our Happiness Project! Arrggghhhh...so here's to sum up the little things of late that made me happy...:)
  • Being able to travel abroad once in while
  • Getting reminded by S to take my vitamins
  • S surprised me with a Hello Kitty pillow
  • Chatting and goofing around with Intan my heartwarming lil' sis
  • Watched two good movies in the cinema in a week - Life of Pi & The Hobbit
  • See Up turn 2 years old and treated my parents some nice lunch to celebrate
  • Keenan (3 y.o. nephew) brought me a glass of water to my room when he knew I was sick 
  • Donated half of my closet to relatives - now my closet has so much room I feel light. And have the reason to shop again heheheh.
  • No matter now deep S is asleep, he always replies when I talk to him at night. Weird, yes? He said it's called the "love wi-fi".
  • See S sing in public, on stage, on his bestfriend's wedding. S never did that his whole life. I'm proud..:)

UP Lookbook

My first lookbook for Up is finally out! Yaaaayyyyyyyy! I wanted the photos to appear fun, flirty yet friendly, so I chose a model that had a less sexy face and more cute instead, and also played around with food props to build up the theme. Check out the complete set here...:)
