Back in high school..

Wow...I just found this poem I wrote back in high school for an English homework..
All right in the end
Isn't life strange? A total mystery
I am lost in a lonely place
I want to live in a world where I belong
But we'll never know unless we grow
For I may never get the chance again
Close your eyes Your dreams will lead the path
It's a long way to find out who you are
There's so much world outside the door
Now I see the possibilities of how my life could be The changes I'd make if I had the power
I've kept it inside for the longest time Maybe this road won't lead me anywhere
They're trying hard to put me in my place And that's why I have to keep running The future's mine and there's no disgrace
Now you know you're not alone
Better things are coming my way
I know I'll be alright in the end.

Thanks so much Allison!

Saturday at MacRitchie..

For a while now, B and I have made it a habit on going to MacRitchie on weekends for our 'exercise'. By exercise, I mean a 12km hike through MacRitchie Reservoir. We went yesterday, and it was boiling hot, one of the first days where it didn't rain for once. I must tell you this, at the beginning of every walk, B would look excitedly for "the perfect stick". Don't ask me why. It's a guy thing. You'll have a better understanding after reading the book "Why men don't have a clue and women always need more shoes." Yesterday's walk was no different, and B did find his stick, but it had other branches attached to it lying on the ground. I watched him as he picked it up, and *easily* tore off the remaining branches. Honestly, I was actually quite amazed at how strong he was at that moment coz those branches looked kinda thick to me. And so, he had his perfect stick..
On most of our walks at MacRitchie, we usually come across groups of monkeys (some of them doing the deed, some eating, some picking stuff off each other), very fascinating to watch. There are also snakes, giant forest ants which I do not have a liking for (but B are fascinated by them for some reason), lizards and squirrels.
On my walks, I bring along with me my wristlet which consist of my mobile, a lip balm and a tissue. I guess this is typical boy-girl behaviour. Man walks with stick, girl walks with purple bag swinging off her wrist.
This reservoir is huge and beautifully maintained. It's definately a place to go to de-stress yourself.

Twilight stitches...

After reading Breaking Dawn, my mind was filled with everything Edward & Bella...
and so I got my hands busy stitching this now famous quote from the first book...
Oh...I used my new 'magic guide' aida. Don't worry the pink squares will disappear once washed.

I've entered the Twilight Craze...

"And so the lion fell in love with the lamb...What a stupid lamb. What a sick, masochistic lion." - Edward, Bella, Edward.
Well, what can I say? I obviously knew the Twilight Sega was HUGE, comparable to Harry Potter, but for some unknown reason, it never interest me until I saw the movie last week. Yep, I think I may be one of the very few people who saw the movie before reading the books. Once I started, it was very hard to put down. Stephanie Meyer's writing is very entertaining and absorbs you right into the heart of the book and its characters, especially Edward & Bella. I started reading Twilight Wednesday evening after I submitted my sociology essay. I finished the book at 3am in the morning. The next day, I went to purchase New Moon and Eclipse. Again, it took me about a day to finish one although I must admit I 'rushed' through the parts with Jacob so I could be absorbed with my Edward again.. I loved the first part of Breaking Dawn, I was so happy reading the star-crossed lovers fairytale, and Bella's funny attempts on seducing Edward. Then things went downhill from there, not so much the book itself, but because I didn't like reading the fairytale and then quite suddenly it was all very tragic..
"Is that what you dream about? Becoming a monster?" - Edward
"Mostly I dream about being with you forever." - Bella

Vintage Roses hand & face towel set

I had just completed this baby pink hand and face towel set yesterday. I hand stitched on a piece of aida band and then sewn it onto the towels. It consists of flowing vines with pretty pink flowers and the hand towel has tiny lovehearts on it too.
