Photographs,


 

 

 

 

I was inspired by one of my good friend to write this blog post.

 

Apparently, she likes to ask me this question when I want to take a photo, ” Why do you want to take photo? I don’t want!”

 

HAHAA. Then I will tell her why I want to take photographs.

 

I like taking photographs for a reason.

 

We can’t preserve time but we can preserve a moment from that time.

 

That is photographs.

 

We can’t stop time, however, when we take photographs, we can have a moment of the past, in the future.

 

Here I will share a few photographs, taken in Taiwan.

I feel that when I look at these pictures in the future, I will be extremely happy and it will be a good way for me to reminisce the past.

Facebook, Instagram, blogs are actually very good tools to store your pictures. 😉

So dear friend, don’t ask me again okay? 🙂

Let’s store these memories for the future.

Guys, next time if people take photographs with you, Take them happily okay! They will become a good memory in the future. 😉

To the bloggers out there,


I find blogs a wonderful and amazing thing.

I first started my blog in 2006. Not this link though. I wrote about things that happen in our lives, and of course NO cyber bullying. haha.

Yes, why have I created this blog? Many people ask me why.

In fact, I’m not very sure. I used to be an addict to blogs whereby I blog every single day. And as I grew older, I lost that interest. However, 1 year back, this passion came back and I decided to open a new blog. And this time, I don’t want my blog to just post about my daily lives, but I want to share my stories and things I have learnt throughout my life.

I want people to learn with me and hopefully, they will be able to get some advices through this blog to help in their daily lives.

When I first started this blog, I was hoping that I could just reach out to first, my friends. And who knows, I started to gain followers! I can still remember that happiness in my heart when more and more followers came.

Up till today, I managed to have 70 followers, and I am really grateful about that. (Hopefully I still can gain more in the future 😀 )

Not only that, I like blogs because I find blogs are a cool tool that brings everyone from different countries to “meet”. From their blogs, we can learn about each other’s lives, countries, and even cultures.

This blog, have given me lots of satisfaction and knowledge I would probably not even be able to gain from books or textbooks. It is an experience and feeling that go through your heart because you are able to feel it, as you are part of it.

I don’t know how to explain it but I’m pretty certain many other bloggers out there have the same feeling as me.

And I would like to tell the bloggers that I have met, I have talked to,

Thank you for all your blogposts because I learnt alot from them.

No matter how many followers you have, no matter how many readers you have, it’s certain that out there in the world, there will be someone who actually appreciate your work. 🙂 Never give up and continue your passion to write.

We might have started the blog, perhaps for different purposes.

But we have one thing in common.

That is the love and passion to blog.

That precious memory,


Our lives were perfect,

there were nothing that we lacked.

Things were unexpected,

but it was not what we wanted. 

You left us,

in a speed that was so fast.

That day when we cried,

obviously we had no more appetite. 

That night, we wept,

so much tears were shed.

How much we feared,

was the amount of tears that have been teared, 

Those days were a horror, 

when all of us were drowned into sorrow.

Slowly by slowly.

step by step.

We put you into our memory,

and we no longer live in the misery.

Now that it have been so long, 

we have moved on.

The love we have,

will always be there.

Have you guys ever had something that you have forgotten for a very long time and one day, you were walking down the street? Then the memory suddenly returned back to you as a vivid memory and that you could remember it as if the incident had just happened yesterday.

Or is there a  memory that you can never ever forget in your entire life even though it happened very long time ago.

It was that day. The day that my grandmother left us. It was too sudden, and perhaps that was what added to the impact that had caused all of us, whereby we can never ever forget what happened that day.

A piece of memory came to me that day. I do not really remember much about the things that happened in the past. But this piece of memory came back:

That day, she brought me to the market. She held my hand all along and when we reached a store, she bought something from the shop and this shop sell toys as well. She asked me if I wanted the toy. As a kid, i nodded. It was a farm set of toys. Now, I still have the 2 piece of toys with me.

The week before she went to heaven, she said to me,

“我要收这些美美的衣服过年!“ (I want to keep these beautiful clothes for Chinese new year! )

I believe that when she left us, that incident kind of changed me.
I became more conscious and aware of the things around me and no longer take things for granted.

What I regret is that I never had a chance to say.” I love you and thank you” to her.
I lost that chance but I believed that she will still understand me.

Now and then,

I will still think about her.

婆婆,您一定要快乐。好想您。。

Chinese New year celebration


Today is the third day of CNY celebration!

I’ve spent these 3 days visiting relative houses and getting ang powwww 😀 hahahaha.

Today, I went to my cousin’s house and there was lion dance!! This was what the “lion” placed Isn’t it cute? Image

Image

We were pretty bored and we decided to play this. STACK block. ahhaha. 
Bring back childhood memories and it was fun!!!

And the cutest thing was that we were sitting by the table, playing cards.
One of my cousin and I started to sing, and ta da! everyone by the table followed. 

It was super cute!!! ❤ 😀

Image

And at night, we “lao yu sheng”!! Yu sheng is also known as prosperity toss, lo hei. 

Yusheng is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor. Yusheng is also served as part of a multi-dish dinner, usually as the appetizer due to its symbolism of “good luck” for the new year.

Shall share the meanings of the ingredients! As some, I’m still abit unclear, got some info from online websites 😀

Raw fish–> abundance and excess through the year. 年年有余 (Nian Nian You Yu) meaning “Abundance through the year”.

Pomelo/ Lime–>The pomelo or lime is added to the fish, adding luck and auspicious value. 大吉大利–> “Good luck and smooth sailing”

Oil–> circling the ingredients and encouraging money to flow in from all directions.  财源广进 Cai Yuan Guang Jin meaning “Numerous sources of wealth”

Carrots –> blessings of good luck. 鸿运当头 Hong Yun Dang Tou meaning “Good luck is approaching”.

Shredded green radish –> eternal youth. 青春常驻 Qing Chun Chang Zhu meaning “Forever young”. 

Shredded white radish is added –> 步步高升 Bu Bu Gao Sheng meaning “Reaching higher level with each step”

Peanut crumbs–> a household filled with gold and silver. 金银满屋 Jin Yin Man Wu which also mean “Household filled with gold and silver”

Deep-fried flour crisps–> the whole floor would be filled with gold. 满地黄金 Man Di Huang Jin meaning “Floor full of gold”.

Some ingredients I did not add in because it wasn’t in my yu sheng. hahahaa. 🙂

But any more information, you can just refer to online research.

Happy CNY everyone!! 😀

 

 

 

Little small things in life,


As I have said the past few days, this week was definitely a terrible one, with a terribly hectic and packed schedule. However, I’m so glad it’s Friday today! which marks the last presentation for the week. I haven’t had enough sleep recently. hahaha. And couldn’t believe I only slept for 2 hours last night.  Well, no matter, I’m a girl who can’t survive without sleep. hahaa. First, I will like to tell all my readers and classmates that, Please do not lose hope. It will be over soon. :’) Although the process could be tough,

there are fun moments and experiences, knowledges learnt throughout the whole thing.

Thus, never regret it!

So here’s Ben & Jerry’s Ice cream to satisfy my cravings,Image

And my friend got this small little cute bear for me in Korea, Image

And another friend bought me a book from Taiwan 🙂Image

These small little things in my life, are the ones that kept me going despite the hard process. They are the little lights that lead me out when I was in my darkness.

Thank you for everything, thank you for everyone who is around me and thank you for single moments that I wish to remember forever and ever. Grateful and thankful. Anyway, It’s Chinese new year eve!~! 🙂

Can’t wait for cny! 🙂 Happy Chinese new year and happy holidays everyone! 😀
