a lot like love

'Emily, I'm flat broke. I don't have a job. I don't have a plan. And I know, I know I'm probably six years too late, but will you give me strike one back?' ashton kutcher as oliver martin in a lot like love

6 years too late? sounds like definitely, maybe. sometimes we go round and round in circles because we dont exactly know what to tell this person. we are not sure it is love, but it is a lot like love.

over the weekend

good food with a few friends.

im not suppose to take photos here, so this is the only one i got. one of the most memorable thing is probably the cute model look alike waiter... or is it the breast feeding mother hmm..

green tea cake, sun and moon jap's cafe at wheelock place

tofu cheese cake, sun and moon jap's cafe. the most expensive smallest piece of cake but it is really worth it. nicely done

not to forget a drink at clarke quay at my favourite spot

breakfast before i go, yummy. you can contact her if you are interested to make any orders

p.s. not in the photo pepper's lunch pepper beef with extra cheese and kembangan prawn noodles. yummy.

things you do over the weekend. small talk, meaningful time. refreshing.

"i am who i am. i am not who i-am-not. that makes me 'me'. to be frequently surrounded by ppl that remind you of who you-are-not reminds you that you are nobody. to be in a place where ppl see you as you are is beautiful because i get to be someone."

dreams and miracles

the long journey back i was just thinking through some of those impossible thing that i had ever dreamt of doing in my life.

1. to live in a glass house, better still by the beach and i promise you i have no problem living in it.

2. to own a beautiful paper shop like 'prints'

3. to plan a dream city where everything inside are what we always dream about. from school, supermarket to homes of our dream. very much inspired by my lego world

4. to own a studio apartment

5. to be holding the hand of someone i love lost somewhere around the world having a romantic getaway

impossible as it may sounds like but who knows going to japan was an impossible, planning a wedding was an impossible and this is impossible...

we are living in a world filled with miracles. (im touched by her life and songs)

is marriage about taking chances?

she is finally engaged and getting married this year. after breaking up for the... let me see more than both my hands add up together. this pair of high school sweetheart is finally getting married. oh yah and i meant if each finger represents 10. so yup, they had broke up for like hundred over times. at the rate they went you just never thought they will make it. but when i saw them last year at another friend's wedding i think they had both grown. i assume they dont fight and break up like they used to. i think i saw this mutual understanding that they are sure now.

do you think it takes a 100 times for that girl to be confident that he is really in for it. not that we are proud of it but a girl always needs the assurance that the guy is still interested in them no matter how old there are. im not saying she did that for fun, i sincerely believe she doubted that it will work.

im dumbstruck though by what makes the guy stay that long. though most guy will at least not give up on you the first time as an answer to themselves that they are certain and an assurance to you. the second times you know are already pretty challenging. can you imagine by the 10th times? and come on the 67th times? the 98th times? after which break up do you actually decide to marry her? im all curious and work out by this phenomena. what makes him so sure that it is time?

"Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, "Lord, how many times shall i forgive my brother when he sins against me? Up to seven times?" Jesus answered, "I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times."

sorry, im definitely using that out of context. but yah sometimes 7 times to us seems a lot to us but is it possible it is really not about the numbers. maybe 50 first dates will give us a good idea. perhaps it is not about how many times or how it can work out anymore. anyway you can never be certain that your spouse will never change, so your best bet is that you know your feelings for this person will never change.

could it be he just come to the realisation that she is just it and he will never quit pursuing her? for a moment i think that is the million dollar answer to that question to "whom shall i marry?". we need to stop asking who will commit to me but ask who will i commit myself to for the rest of my life. having said this, im assuming you are not looking for an ideal marriage but building an ideal marriage with someone that matters to you.

anyway im happy for them that they finally make it. at this stage im pretty sure there are both highly convince that there are no other they want to marry. life is about taking chances.

pretty things in life

sinage that i work out with my designer

pre weddings photos display
photos i took time and sweat to art direct and choose. photos that i cut and fit into these heavy-weird sizes ikea frames the very mid night before the wedding. putting it all together sounds like one of the longest progress.

photos cards
DISCLAIMER: i did not art direct this set of photos. if im free i will upload the set i art directed. but i thought this cards are quite interesting.


napkin deco
napkins deco that i designed. all 800 pieces of it put together by my family, bride's friends and hotel staff. we never thought it will come to an end.

VIP table setting

stage lights

change gives us freshness and hope in our stagnant life.
change can be our enemy when everything is going well for us.

"change" seems to be possible to fixed our mess up life.
but many consider it a threat when others want to "change" us

well if it is possible i want some change
but who can promise us that change will really fix things.

even if someone can promise us that.
the sad part is change is much easier say then done.

as much as we want to change things, it doesnt necessary happen
yet the ironic thing in life is: the very thing you want change changes not, and the very thing you dont want to change changes.

there are many ppl you can impress through your walk of life. but sadly, those you try very hard to impress they never seem to notice. mostly those closes to you, those who know you had not try hard enough, those who knows what you could be. those who knows you too well, those who has sometimes have way too much expectations on you.

the question: what do you want to change about the person you are so in love with now?
my answer: if there is one thing, the one thing would be i want to change to love another person. because so often it is painful to be in love with someone that dont seems to have it all right. it is painful because you cannot find enough ground to love this person, yet you still love.

it is said ppl in love or that are loved has more motivation to change, maybe it is true because we who are alone might need more motivation to continue living another day in this lonely and couldnt-care-less-about-you world than anything. who bothers you had changed anyway.

just what i needed for a break

definitely, maybe

ask a woman, they will help you to diagnose who your heart really belongs to. if you dont have any, ask a girl. anyone with a woman instinct, there are still better with it. at least they know what woman meant when they drop you signs which you are so ignorance about.

things that are not worth crying for

"to many losses in life, what money can buy back doesnt hurt as much."

Tuesday, April 01, 2008


come to think about it, i should be thankful for him. in that short 3 months, he had actually enriched me with a lot of life lesson. i just couldn't deny the fact that he understands women more than any other men in the world. that i believe gives him the credentials to be a player, because you dont get to change the game unless you know fully how to play the game. in the middle of our second month, after i blasted out what i felt. he calmly grabbed my hand and says "sorry, i didnt know". he is the only guy i believe that ever ask me to throw my tantrum when i feel like it: "you need to express yourself when things happen and not explode a month later with accumulated stuff". it makes sense, keep short accounts.

it is unfair to give reasons of break up if whatever your reasons are something she hears for the first time in her entire time with you. fact is you dont have a relationship and you dont want a relationship. giving reasons for reasons sake is unfair because you never allow the other party room and time to change. thus it is unfair to make a judgement that this person will never change. it is not unhealthy to have differences since none of us are identical. part of a relationship is to communicate this thing and work it out anyway.

assuming that is really the day you need to end things, you never cut someone off until you give a reason. even the world of law never execute a criminal without substantial reason. yes even a criminal is given a chance to defense themselves. so as ugly as his reasons sounded, he gave it to me. knowing that i will not change my stand we moved on.

as much as there are a world of guys that prefers to suppress their feelings because women never understand. i hereby petition they learn to open up. first learn to open up to your friends it will help you in your future relationship. there is really no way to make a relationship last until people start relating. seemingly, there is no reason to want a long term relationship in the first place if they dont intend to do so long term.

i guess that is why i only date best friends. since it is not a norm for guys to open up, i can only tell when i get close enough to them. until of course they stop being your best friends...

"In life, only one thing is certain, apart from death and taxes. No matter how hard you try, no matter how good your intentions, you are going to make mistakes. You’re going to hurt people. You’re going to get hurt. And if you ever want to recover... there’s really only one thing you can say (im sorry)."

"Forgive and forget. That’s what they say. It’s good advice, but it’s not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness, old scores are never settled… old wounds never heal. And the most we can hope for, is that one day we’ll be lucky enough to forget."
