I had turned 26th this year. At this age, I do place an importance in my family and close friends. Ever since my 18th birthday, I was becoming homely each year. My lifestyle must have been affected largely by work too. I thought in my early career , I would frequent pubs and bar, hang out with friends and spend my money shopping.

But who knows, i began to love my bed much more after i went work.

And I've passed 25 already' life is travelling at 26km/hr everyday the moment i hit 26th. Start counting down to 30. Thinking about it, I would like to fulfill many things in life but look at it now. Its neither that I have the money nor the time.

But i will still make time for my family.

Just last weekend, Xiong's sil whipped up a family feast for lunch and I was there to fill my stomach. She had prepared since morning while the rest of us just went there to eat. There was a variety of dishes; salmon teriyaki, sambal prawn, crocodile soup, egg curry chicken etc!

She had prepared the food by the time we reached.

And ready for lunch!

And the 2 brothers had already taken the seats.

Very soon, we gobbled up the food, leaving the chicken wing plate empty. The curry chicken was really good, the egg was a bit chao ta but still good, i love the Hainanese cook style tang hoon and the sambal prawn! It was really a sumptuous lunch! 

After we filled our stomach, these 2 guys in the photo above went for an afternoon nap. What a nice day, while their brother and sister in law clearing the foods. ZZzzz. 

Not longer after, they took a cake out from somewhere. Only then i realise Xiong's elder brother went to buy a cake for me after his school. It was really heart warming. 

Me and Linda.

The love of my life. Looking good after a short nap.

Making my wish ... ...

and his family.

Was happy that this gathering is made possible. It always feels great to slack with your family in a cosy home. Hope this gathering will always go on ^^.

My 26th Birthday Part 1

Oh my god! Days and days that i am not blogging as frequent.

Last weekend I had a date with my poly friends. We were supposed to do potluck but somehow it ended that one of my friend was doing all the cooking. During noon, we went to her house to eat her home cook curry magee noodles. It was a healthy meal as she used yogurt instead of coconut. I did my fair share as well; I brought along my home made jelly for them to try. Little Chloe (my friend's daughter) loves it as she kept coming for more.

There was so much to catch up that we even couldn't much talk all about it in a day. It was nice to coop up at her cosy home, chatting away the whole afternoon.


And this is us, with friendship of 10 years. These 10 years indeed change us a lot.

and the year dated back to 2009! Mei Ching, it was how we were like 6 years ago!

And we will always be 5F!
Whenever i feel when life is hard on me, i tell myself that there are always someone else who is living much worst off than I am. At least, i know that i am a healthy working young adult who has dreams to pursue and expectations of becoming what I can be.

I never knew how fortunate I am till heard of true life stories of family who the parents couldn't even take of themselves, much less to mention their sick in-laws and disabled child. Back in hospital, i had also heard of families whose daughter is a PhD student and one who is able to afford to buy branded blankets for $20,000 (Just normal blankets for sleeping). As people says, 一山还有一山高, as people of different walks of life enter SGH for the same reason. 

Everyday, in the hospital, we hear different stories, we see different people and interact with different types of families. Each of us has our own story to tell, but are we able to understand what kind of life they are going through? Well, i know we can't , because we are not them.

I am beginning to see that all of these are just part and parcel of life; working 8 -5 on weekdays, accompanying my family and boyfriend over the weekend. trying to make time for friends, planning for our future house etc. ferrying to work and preparing stuffs when my mum is real sick back then. As i get older, i tend to see through difficulties in different perspectives, learn the hard truth and accept what comes may. 

I feel that i had mature a lot since 4 years back and not that little girl who will cry over a dramatic breakup. Xiong has been standing by my side for whatever things happen to me and my family and he has no complaints about being tired or anything that sort. He has always been supportive and someone who I can rely on.   

Besides him, I am very glad and appreciative that i have a complete yet noisy family. Through the years, I value my family much more than I was before. Perhaps, i am a grown up now, partying till late night is not quite my thing. 

The best place to be, is with your family. Because no one can replace your family.   

My humble family

Haven been blogging for 1 -2 weeks...

It was a rough week for me and my family last week. I was on my new job for a month but my mum, was in hospital for a week. As much as we were trying tokeep the news within our family, somehow news spread and the rest of my relative got to know it. Almost all of my family went to visit and accompany her after they knew she was hospitalized. There will always be constant supply of food for her since all of us were afraid that she didn't like hospital food.

As days passed, she is definitely looking better and better, far off much better from the last few days she was admitted. Though even so, the doctors never stop telling us how bad her condition was and none of their words  were the same. Each of the doctors she was consulting told us different stories everyday. Even so, my family and I never stop believing that my mum will be healed back to health one day.

And all of us believe she will be..
