Realization - After all, some people never get to meet them at all.

Came across an article on Thought Catalog today that I found I could identify with. 

Basically, my takeaways are the following which I believe many of us would come to realise after reading. 

If you’re lucky, you get to meet the love of your life. You get to be with them, to learn from them, to give the whole of yourself over to them and allow their influence to change you in unfathomable measures. It’s an experience like nothing else we have on this earth.

But here is what the fairytales won’t tell you – sometimes we meet the loves of our lives, but we do not get to keep them.


We do not get to marry them, to pass our years alongside them, to hold their hands on their deathbeds after a life lived well and together.

Sometimes the biggest, most loving move you can possibly make is to let each other go.
Other times you don’t get a choice.
But here’s another thing they won’t tell you about finding the love of your life: not ending up with them doesn’t disqualify their significance.

Some people can love you more in a year than others could love you in fifty. Some people can teach you more within a single day than others could teach you over the entire course of a lifetime.

Some people come into our lives only for a particular period of time, but make an impact that no one else can ever quite match or replace.

Maybe we just ought to be grateful that we got to meet these people at all. 

That we got to love them. That we got to learn from them. 

That we got to have our lives expand and flourish as a result of having known them.

Meeting and letting go of the love of your life doesn’t have to be your life’s single greatest tragedy.

If you let it, it can be your greatest blessing.
After all, some people never get to meet them at all.

CNY 2016 - 初一

CNY is probably my favouritest time of the year. I personally like it because I can get to spend time with my family and see all the extended family members who we only see once a year (unless there's a wedding or what)

Lets start off this post with my family picture! Hehe not your usual mainstream family portrait but here's mine! My parents are the reason why I believe in love and marriage. :) They have been married for 30years but they are still so loving every day. IMG_0789

Mandatory shot with jiejie! Borrowed her clutch, as usual hehe. Before every dinner/gathering where we dress up, jiejie would have to worry if I have anything to wear, what bag Im using. Its like I have her as my stylist! Hehe. #bestsisterever

Headed over to Ahma's house - our first stop, for lunch! And look who we saw! Ansel's soooo cute! The last time I saw him was during his 1st month celebration and he's already 8months plus now! Babies really do grow superrrr fast.

Grabbed Ahma for a picture inbetween places and hehe ahma's so beautiful. Every year without fail, she will wake up so early, cook and when we're eating, she'll pile heaps of food on our plates, and she'll only start to eat when we force her to sit down and stop walking around. I love you ahma!

Off to the next stop, the Granduncle's house opposite Great world city! Its where most of our extended family gathers every year. Nice to always see everyone laughing and catching up. :)

Sponsored post - Dermagold Miracle C+

About a month and a half ago, I received an invitation to try out Dermagold's award winning serum. Recommended for virtually every skin type, the award winning serum is Miracle C+. It won the Simply Her Smart Shopper Great Skin Award this year for Face Serum and after I laid my hands on the product, I couldnt wait to begin on the new regime!

A short introduction on Miracle C+, it is an odour-less concentrated serum with 18% Vitamin C Ester which is very high as compared to other over-the-counter products which may have only 3-5%!  It aids in anti-aging, anti-pigmentation, anti-inflammatory and anti-wrinkles! Formulated in a base of hyaluronic acid, it boosts, protects and restores skin conditions during dull times even. For people with oily skin, Miracle C+ also helps to balance oil secretion on your skin.

The directions for use is simple as Miracle C+ can be applied day and night. As the serum is very concentrated, just a pump is more than sufficient for the entire face. After cleansing and toning your face, apply one pump on your skin and you're good to go! (For the lazier people like me who are lazy to moisturise!) But of course for better results or on days when you find your skin dryer than usual, please continue with your next step of skincare regime, which is to moisturise!
