weddings and babies and work and life

over the last two weeks. i had been attending weddings and visiting babies. the favourite question when ppl see me carrying my friend baby is "so when will be your turn (to have babies)?" i told them "a long way more". i don't even have a dot, let's not talk about a stroke.

baby asher, the furthest i go for a baby (all the way to singapore).

i have two cliques of gfs from my two different secondary school. when we were younger we did make a prediction who will married first. let me show you how close prediction and reality take place.

CLIQUE 1 - seafield
1. fei meng
2. sien lee
3. shin yee
4. anna
5. chaiyen

1. sien lee - married the man she dated for a month. currently a mother of one boy, brandon
2. fei meng - in sec3 she dated back her first love and got married last year. now a mother of a girl, chloe
3. shin yee - attach and otw
4. anna - complicated
5. chaiyen - single

CLIQUE 2 - smsu
1. salina
2. mei yee
3. celia
4. chaiyen
5. chiau theng
6. kelly

1. salina - married for ages and a mother of 2
2. kelly - married 2 years ago
3. celia - married yesterday with her bf of 10 years
4. meiyee - attach and otw
5. chaiyen - single
6. chiau theng - single

most ppl think that im a career woman type thus place me in the last few positions. i can only tell you it was not intended and i definitely didn't try very hard to fall so close to the prediction. am i pressured? actually still not yet. not sure if i will still say that after the next two weddings. currently very busy with work. and small things like this would please me like if i can catch these movies soon
1. amazing grace
2. the 11th hour
3. grey anatomy

am very blessed already to work back with a few old friends. can't tell you fully how good it feels to have friendship taken away from you restored. after church service today, we sang this new version of the old hymn and i had been looping this song the whole night. these simple words by chris tomlin resonate with what's in my heart, the strong peace that i feel tonight just fits nicely to the stage of my life now.

"Looking back on what I said all those years ago, all the hopes and dreams I had, I've come to the conclusion that if having things turn out the way you wanted them to is a measure of a successful life, then some would say I'm a failure. The important thing is not to be bitter over life's disappointments. Learn to let go of the past, and recognize that every day won't be sunny. And when you find yourself lost in the darkness of despair remember, it's only in the black of night that you see the stars, and those stars lead you back home.

"So don't be afraid to make mistakes, to stumble and fall, because most of the time the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most. Maybe you'll get everything you wish for. Maybe you'll get more than you ever could have imagined. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end, the journey is the destination."
Whitey's time capsule message, OTH

enjoying the journey and i know some of you out there are having some hard time, holding you in my prayers and i pray you will come to peace with where you are now too. guard your heart, love you.
