Merry Christmas!

Had a great but very busy weekend. My sister's bachelorette party on Saturday night was a blast! The bridesmaids booked a room at Royal plaza on Scotts, ordered food from sushi tei & timbre, watched a midnight movie (what could be more apt to watch than The Bachelorette?), made my sister parade around orchard wearing the "Bride 2 B" sash, played games etc etc. It was good fun.

The next day I hosted a Christmas Party for my closest friends in university, and I feel that's what Christmas should always be like. Small group, cosy, tons of fun. Nuff' said.

Finally had 25th to Ben & just myself, and we spent it watching movies and just having good food to avoid the festive crowd. Love days like these.

The best news ever? His overseas leave has JUST been approved so we're going to KL tomorrow! Super last min hehe.

Really worn out from the very hectic end to 2012! But it's the "happy kind" of worn out, if you get what I mean.

Finally getting to see and even hear from the boyfriend tomorrow night; has got to be the longest week ever! In the mean time my cousins from the USA flew over for Christmas as well as sister's wedding, and it's really heartening to see us all so close even when we grew up apart.

Also when you miss someone you love too much it's always nice to be reminded that you still have others who love and to love. Good company is important and I really cannot describe how this bunch of 4 other friends I got to know from my course in university matter to me. Especially right now at this point in my life.

I don't have many friends. In fact I'd hate to have many. Sounding snobbish, it's cos just too picky. But it is so delighting to be assured that the few are really enough.

Well I have to say that I am still a firm believer of active, long-lasting love. Firm believer or naive young girl, I do not care but i suppose it is fine to be naive about this as long as you are happy.

Of course I'm not the kind who instantly believes that "he's the one", or the kind who chooses to allow unfortunate circumstances have their way. I even mock myself by admitting that I'm one not very idealistic, not very optimistic, leaving little hope for what the future may bring.

But when you see a couple holding each other's wrinkled hands, both white-haired and hunched, you know that there definitely is what this naive girl's talking about.

We all fail at love. Once, twice, many times, sometimes all our life. But at least, don't underestimate the power of believing.

I don't understand how in the past I can tear out of frustration or sheer anger, cos now it's only from genuine sadness or this sense of disappointment that it's made possible

Having a one week break in the middle of my exams is really detrimental to the momentum I've built up towards the end of the semester. Just look at all the fun I've allowed myself to engaged in:

Beach & candy with Ben
Cooked Tom yum soup for the girls
Having the time to mark my kids' work

Oh yea I've secured a huge deal. So huge and burdening that I've stopped actively looking for other tuition assignments. It pays damn well, but I have to forgo my Saturday mornings and afternoons, without any break.

In the mean time, (although my last paper is in 2 days and I haven't started working on the syllabus, and haven't been to any lectures but the first) let me indulge in my time with Ben before he starts ground school and subsequently his Basic Wings Course.
