It's definitely not easy and glad to know that relationship can actually lasts that long and eventually ended up with an happy ending! Sorry for being a negative person but I am just stating out the reality of relationship nowadays :p

Coincidentally, Siow Hui also had her wedding dinner at the hall opposite of Diana's. Congrats to her as well! She was my secondary school mate too!
There are so many weddings lining up this year!!! GOSH..........
I mean I am happy for them but it also put pressure on those of us who are still not married wahaha!
Will be in Malaysia for CNY for the entire week!!! HOORAY!
Gong Xi Gong Xi everyone!!!

Over the weekend I was in Batu Pahat (BP). Went to a saloon in Summit to perm and colour my hair. At first, I was in a quiet mood as I was tired from travelling from Singapore to BP. Sat down, read magazine, wait for my turn to shampoo, after shampoo, back to reading magazine. Suddenly a very young girl sat down beside me. She is an assistant in the Saloon. Still I continue to read my magazine, knowing that she might wanna chat with me. Don't blame me because as I said, I was in a quiet, or rather, tired mood. Out of sudden, she started talking " Why you ignore me???" True enough, she really wanted to speak to me. She told me she is afaid that I am bored, so she decided to come and chit chat with me. I started to feel bad and although I was quite tired, I begun talking to her.
Turned out that she is a really nice and genuine girl. SEriously, her sincerity touched me in a way. You don't find this kind of sincerity in those saloon in KL and Singapore. We talked about everything under the sun. This girl is only 15yrs old and she stopped studying. I know that nowadays its very common to quit studying in BP and get married (usually because of shot-gun marriage!).
WAT! why would parents encourage their kids to stop studying? I WONDER. However, through our conversation later, I realised that the girl is actually very happy with her life now. She likes her job and she also put in effort into developing her skils in hairstyling. She loves her colleagues and basically I can see that she is very happy with her current life. Some may say she will regret it in the future but to certain people, future is just too far away. As of now, she made a correct decision.
Then I thought about my own situation. Yes I am highly educated but am I truly happy with my life? Not necessarily so. My mom was saying,"If we did not move to KL and we did not study that much, maybe we would have been happily married and well settled in BP already." That is a statement that bothers me for a while. I know my mom's reason for saying this. She just want to see my sister and I settle down. Does it mean that the more knowledge you gained, the more things you would think about before making a decision? Truth is yes, I have to consider so much when making decisions and sometimes I wasn't even happy with the decision that I've made after careaful considerations.
Then why the * I think so much before making decisions?
sigh... so ya.....Simple minded People Are Happy People!
or is it because I don't see their worries? Enlighten me!

Before my post on my trip to Chinatown, I would like to say that I am very happy because my primary school friends found me through my blog! GOSH... you know how this feeling is...there are people actually reading my blog and these are my primary school friends! And I thought I would never find them again because there weren't any email address or mobile then...*did I just reveal my pontential age?* HEHE This also make me feel like I should definitely try to update my blog more often as I have been neglecting it...
ok back to CNY! Ya...It's here again!!! Well, to get some CNY feel, I went to Chinatown last Sunday. Well, newspaper reported that there are some 80 stalls selling CNY goodies and I figure that I should refrain from visiting shopping mall, you know, the normal activities for those staying in Singapore.
Took a bus there from Bishan, Bus 54 I remembered. It took us 1.5 hours including waiting time! So slow, I would have taken the MRT although I am lazy to change line at Doby Ghaut! It would have been just.. 1/2 hour? Well, good thing about taking bus is that you see a lot of Singapore! Bungalows, nice condos,...not just HDB! Makes me start wondering that it would not be a bad idea to settle down here if I have a nice condo/bungalow(preferred) of my own!
Tried some function on my new camera, cool eh?
Finally there! Chinatown point I think...got the CNY feel yet?
This is damn cute!
Not forgetting the main character this year! MR COW...
embrace the crowd!!
Woohoo! Look at the red sea!
essential ingredients for yummy CNY meal
heart shape bamboo for the lovers
I had fun exloring the stalls but I didn't stay there for long as it was getting very hot with the crowd. It's definitely worth visiting and to get some CNY feel.
With this post I would like to wish everyone a prosperous year ahead!
