My 100th post, my life story.


Hiya, I’m back!

This will officially be my 100th post since I joined wordpress!

And thus, I decided to post something that means close to me and hopefully bring out the meaning of this life story to everyone.

So here goes.

I was a happy go lucky girl since young.

Everyone says that if ever the sky falls, I could have just used the sky as my blanket. haha.

I might not be a very outspoken person, okay maybe I do. To the people who I’m close to.

But yea, one thing I’m ever glad that I have was to have this optimistic attitude of mine.

Whenever I am upset or so, I might whine alot, like literally complain. But I mean no harm. I love to say it out, well of course is better to say then to bottle up in my heart, isn’t it? hahaa, That could raise my risk of having heart problem. :p

First change was when it was 2007.
I used to be quite a rebellious girl during 2007. Well, it was the stage that many become really really bad. I’m glad I did not turn out that way.
I remembered how much I love to buy branded bags and so.

But yes, I wasn’t the one paying for them.

I remembered how freely I always used my money.
I did not have the habit of saving back then as well.
All I did, was to spend.

I can’t remember what happened, but I did change.
Partly , i think  it was because of the passing on of my grandmother.
I started to slowly see things in another perspective.

Then I moved on to another year where I found my love in reading books.

I really miss those times spent with my friends reading, spending our break times, lunch times, just purely reading. It was really great fun.

Yet, when I reached the next 2 years,

I started to get very tired with my studies and started to feel the burden of studying.

Of course, I did not score very well, with that mindset as my motivation was really low.

Now thinking back, I could have gotten better, if I had more motivation.

But during the low period of my life,

I had the most wonderful amazing people around me.

I have my family there for me and the most wonderful mentor- Mdm Tan.

I remembered how well she motivated me, giving me courage and strength to go on.

She would talk to me about achieving my goals and so.

Sometimes, teachers do not have to teach through lessons, but really, giving support to the students when they need it was really important.

I went on to my another stage of life and after thinking for a long time, I decided I would do something meaningful to my life, in the end, taking up gerontology.

I found my passion in this.

Learning about active ageing and so. And hopefully, these knowledge will be useful in the future.

Then I have my another change in my life.

One fine day, I spotted a floater in my eye. In the end, I went for eye check up.
To my horror, to find out that my retinal had detached.

I was afraid and scared to hear about the surgery processes that totally freaks me out.

I was like, “WHAT?! You have to take my eyeball out?”

Sounds disgusting and painful , isn’t it? Ouch.

I was that young and I started to wonder.

How would this happen to me?

Normally, it would happen to older people, stated by the doctor.

But I was too young for that!

I was horrified and when I went to  another hospital, the doctor wanted a surgery straight!

My mind couldn’t even processed!!!

So I told myself, “CW, BE STRONG.”

The doctor felt that he could try laser surgery first.

And yes, I went in.

During the procedure, I was like, “OH GAWD, IT HURTS!!!!!!!!”

I felt my tears were flowing.

I thought of the happy moments I have, trying to distract me from the pain.

I was glad, I survived!!!!

But in the end, when I went for the check up the very next day,

he realised there was a need for another round. 😦

And this time, I guess I was stronger.

In a short while. it was done.

After that matter, I have alot of thoughts flowing through my mind and I became what I am like today.

I lost 10% of my vision but I have started to notice small little things that I couldn’t noticed or cared in the past.

And ta da, another positive attitude girl is created.

I felt like a brand new girl after my surgery.

Well, you may call it unlucky, but I am really glad I survived and I’ve been through a lesson that taught right into my heart.

Well, this is my life story and my dear 100th post.

It was a tough process but I learnt alot from them.

Do you feel happy for me?

I do, I really do.

 

And yes , thank you for my 87 followers.

Everything does happen for a reason. 😉

We are who we are.

I love this quote alot.

We are who we are.

No one can stop you from doing the things you love, no one can tell you that you can’t do it.

No one can discourage you because you are the sky.

You are who you are and you own your own piece of sky.

Things that change might be like the weather , could be cloudy, could be sunny.

However, the main choice of what you want to do, is still yours.

Because you are the sky 😉

It looks like some ordinary flowers.
But No, it wasn’t like any other.
These were flowers that were cut out using plastic waterbottles and then being coated with colourful paint.
She was so proud of it that she insist having all of us to take photo of it 😉

That moment was touching, but warming.

Yesterday, (20/1/2013) I went for this volunteering event with a few of my friends.It was the first volunteer work I am doing since the start of 2013, good start huh? xD
We helped to pack the food and daily necessity and brought to some elderly’s houses.

It was a really eye-opener for us because it is like we haven’t really have such experience before. All of them were pretty friendly and some were so cute.
One even told me, ” You have a pretty name. And Pretty name are for nice people.”

It was really heartwarming for me to hear that.

And I really felt the describable warmth despite the cold and rainy weather.
Not only that, I was surprised at the Projects people initiated in our country, and yes, by youngsters. There were also many more volunteers than what I expected. 😉

But I’m grateful for those people who have used their efforts to actually help those who in need. I’m glad and I’m thankful.

Another new year resolution: help even more people with the small hands of ours.

Because I know I can contribute, I therefore believe I can volunteer my contribution.

And we make it happen. 🙂

Perseverance,


Remember when I actually said,

Never ever give up.

I have a real life experience now.
And let me share my story. 🙂
This could be small little details in life , however I guess is still brings out how perseverance can actually bring you somewhere in further to your own goals.

I started baking when I was 14.
I haven’t had anyone to teach me when I started.
I tried multiple attempts and of course, I failed many times.
Despite following some of the instructions, I just seemed to miss out a step or so.
However, that day, I tried again after a long period of time and I decided to follow the new set of recipe again.
The smell was fantastic when I started baking. However, as a few minutes passed, I noticed my first set of cookies failed again. It overbaked and it turned black 😥
I was demoralised! I thought by following the recipe, I could do it well but apparently, I didn’t.
Then, I decided to keep trying, deciding not to follow the recipe anymore and doing it my way. I tried a temperature and changed it during the baking process. Then, I was so glad when I first smelled the aroma. :’)
I went to check and I was so glad it turned out nice and yummy! I then followed the same method for the rest of the cookies and I was so happy.
I’m thankful that I kept trying until I got this end result and I didn’t give up.

Now, I truly believe that failed attempts make you grow and that perserverance brings you success. Not that I don’t believe in the past, but I just felt that feeling more true and realistic. :’)

Never hate someone,

Never hate someone and spend that time loving someone who loves you.
Reasons why you shouldn’t hate someone:
1) It is bad for health.
2) It is not worth to hate someone and ruin your health with a person who is not worth it.
3) Learn to forgive and forget.
4) You might neglect those who love you when you are hating the other people.
5) Loving those who loves you will be the right choice and you will find happiness when you    do so.

Love to update my blog with pictures now 🙂 Especially when I can put up pictures that summarise my whole blog post.

Ups and Downs


20121221-112146.jpg

I think I have never used my phone in a train to write a blogpost and this will be my first try. Hopefully it will be good , hahhaa. 😉 alright. Actually it’s pretty true right?

Thinking about each and everyone of your lives, there is always up and down in our lives. We tend to complain about things that are bad in our lives, like, “why is my life so bad?” ,”why are things not going well for me?” And these setbacks tend to bring people down or even push them to the negative side. However, if life was like a straight line ——————————————, isn’t it boring?

Even our heartbeats have up and down. Then, Why will we expect our lives to be as boring as a straight line? Never be afraid of challenges in life, those are the one who allow you to learn and grow. And these can allow one to become a better person in life. Have a good day everyone !

Be appreciative,

Take notice in small little things in your life.

Many things in our lives, are being taken for granted.
However, if you just take a notice of the little things or actions in your lives, 
you will notice the difference and find meanings in your lives. 

Today morning, a dear friend greeted me with this picture:

Even this small little detail, or picture can brighten up my day. 🙂 

Thank youuu.

Some people might think that it is just a picture but if you look at it in a different way,

you will find the happiness that you never find before. 

Thus, always be appreciative of what you have.
