last 2010, i gave my friends a very unique & fun 2011 planner so that same item was what i had used all throughout last year. this year, however, i had been meaning to buy a new one but i just never found any journal that stood out, at least enough to convince me to purchase it.
but voila… during my trip to singapore february of this year, at the most unexpected time, from the most unexpected person, i actually received my very own planner! i don’t think my friend, who’s not really a generous individual, was actually aware how delighted i felt upon receiving this for the very reason that i had been in search for a new “unique & fun” diary to share my whole 2012 life with. it may not be as hilarious as my previous one, but the fact that i got it as gift during the time that i needed it the most’s enough for me to cherish and use this.
and although i have been very busy during the first 3 months of the year, i decided to finally use it last april 1, as part of my new self mantra: “new beginnings”. so far, i’ve enjoyed filling it up every single night right before going to sleep. my next goal is to find time to record the memorable moments of my year beginning from january to march.
it’s only the 4th month of the year yet i’ve been welcomed with a LOT of deja vu’s & really mind blowing revelations already, things i had never imagined being haunted by again & new experiences i never thought i’d risk for. i cannot wait to read this entire planner at the end of this year & hopefully be proud of the person that i “will become”. the person who gave me this might have given it for a very random reason, but it has surely started affecting my daily life that will last for the remaining 8 months. like what i always say… it’s really the small things in life that make a BIG difference. ;-)
summer starts here. ☀
crimson resort • march 2012
funny to be placed here despite the numerous villas in the entire resort. #life
i don’t remember the last time i baked lasagna. if anything, this is probably what i’m best known for since this was my first ever venture in cooking (errr baking), many many years ago. it’s the first dish that i experimented on that people surely loved, as this has been the most requested everytime we have parties that i’d host.
last february, i threw a party for a very special person and decided to bake once more, after several months (or even over a year) of not doing so. as always, i made sure it would turn out exactly the way i’d want mine to be when i order it in restaurants, meaning super beefy, super creamy, and the most important part: super cheesy! i’m beyond happy with the result and even happier with how (new) friends/set of people got hypnotized by my labor of love. what they don’t know is their compliments sent me to the moon & i was just giggling deep down. this has inspired me to revive my culinary skills. i think 2012 should definitely be a year of more experiments. bon appetite! 🍝
i have this insane obsession with my 3 favorite colors: fuchsia pink, sea turquoise blue & golden orange. everytime i see something that combines them all, in their specific shades, it never fails to weaken my eyes. most of the time, i even buy it even if i don’t need it at all. weird i know, but i just can’t control it! ;)
saw this in ikea singapore last year & i swear it was nothing but love at first sight! too adorable!
can’t wait to distribute my gifts to my hugeee family tonight, most especially to my 4 spoiled princesses! (am i the best tita or wut?ö)
sometimes when you’ve been so stressed and you suddenly feel ill, the world gets better when you get a surprise that involves one of the world’s yummiest ingredient ☛ white cheese!!!
it’s really the small things that count. ;)
first time in bkk. traveling really opens your world into a new dimension and gives you the peace of mind you never thought you’d find elsewhere.
let's run away and don't ever look back, don't ever look back! =j
