Someone once told me that before I could love anyone else, I had to love myself. A human concept that I constantly struggle to grasp.

The turmoils I've been through in the last decade have rendered me this sense of self-worthless. Betrayal took command; continuity of my feelings being taken for granted; being walked over like a freaking doormat. If that was a precursor to Purgatory, I'm glad to be let out of the pit. Finally.

This year began with discovering myself, knowing and falling in love with the inner me. It sounds daunting and perhaps a little weird, but it's ultimately liberating. I am becoming more and more solid of a person I have always wanted to be. Building up this unflappable facade hasn't been easy, thus people may not always see the person inside me because of this nonchalant exterior.

Being stingy to myself isn't healthy either. Ever since declaring a Love Me revolution, the haul beast has been on a celebratory roll. I guess my expenditure in the last 6 months is enough to expel whatever injustice and woes accumulated all these time.

Tomorrow is Valentine's day; a day that merely serves as a reminder of the freedom and independence I have as a self-sufficient woman. I will be spending this day as a woman who is learning to love herself before prowling for a significant other; only then will I truly and wholeheartedly be able to love another.

哇~ 一早起身就看到凌晨时分写的文章...既然是本日的热门呢! ^o^
看了真有点傻眼啦! 哈哈!
  其实我很少顾虑有没有人真正在看我说的东西. 所以看到也十分意外!
我不清楚这"热门"的玩意怎么操作,不过还是要对爱看我部落格的朋友说声谢谢!!

我是有点惭愧,好久没以中文跟Pixnet的朋友问候了... 不好意思咯~~
只不过要以英文来做翻译,有少许的难度.... 嗯嗯... 好吧,就说我懒啦! T-T

小女子前几天刚过生日,而昨天刚好是农历生日耶~
华人生日也只有妈妈最清楚了,对吧?
大了一岁,思想也渐渐成熟... 也得多加一根白发...悲剧呀!!!

最近我会很忙.
除了忙着自己的事外,下个新期有个选美佳丽的总决赛我也受邀出席.
请期待接下来的一系列后续报导哦!

祝大家有个愉快的周末! 拜拜~~

I’ve always looked forward to my birthday. 29th September has always been a magical day. The date filled with my favorite number - 9. Double 9 spells double happiness, and I felt like the luckiest girl in the whole world.

To give and will receive is what I was taught by my parents. Treat someone with love and respect and they will reciprocate. Alas! That was not the case, at least for me. You see, for the last 10 years, I have been thrown deeper into the Bog of Eternal Stench by each person I’ve met. Each expecting to be on the receiving end, but never to give in return.

Without going into specifics, it took me a good two years to forsake the negativities and fair-weathered friends. Never mind that my phone book blinked that big fat ZERO in my face. Unloading those excess baggage was the best decision I have made in my life.

So I’ve turned a year older that day before… and yesterday. Funny how my Western and Chinese birthdays would fall side by side. Only my mother would remember my Lunar Birthday. Bless her. Mothers are often neglected on birthdays as we spend the day making merry with friends and loved ones. But think back that eventful day. Hours spent in the delivery room screaming in pain as their uterus contract …. !@#$%^&* ….. Explicit details aside, mothers should be the one being celebrated instead, don’t you think so?

Reading back my tweets, I was astonished by how how I’ve matured mentally.. 29th September is no more than just a date. Mundane as it seemed, but receiving warm thoughts and well wishes continuously throughout perked up my day! Those few seconds that people took to think of me is more than I could ever asked for, and I had fun thinking up of quirky replies too. What a great way to start a new chapter of my life.

So this is me, adding a strain of <insert dreaded color> hair, I am a year older.

Just experienced my first blood rush.

I got so angry that my head felt giddy.

Must calm myself down...(´・ω・`)

I don't want to suffer a hemorrhagic stroke so young...


刚在体验了生平的第一次脑冲血.

我真的是气得突然感觉到头晕晕的.

我必须要冷静下来...(´・ω・`)

我还不想那么年轻就中风啦...

I'm surprised that I make no mention being a Keane fan.
They have a number of good songs; this one describes my current mood.

And I quote from my favorite poem by William Butler Yeats:

The years to come seemed waste of breath,
A waste of breath the years behind
In balance with this life, this death.


突然发现,我怎么没在部落各提过我是 Keane 的歌迷呢? 嗯嗯...
这来自英国的乐团有很多很好听的歌哦,不过就这首目前能代表我的心情...

以下是由 William Butler Yeats 写的一首诗中,我喜欢的最后3个句子:

在未来的岁月,似乎浪费了一口气,
把多年浪费的呼气放到背后
与平衡这一世,就只有死亡.

Mum got me a pair of white earphones~

( ゚д゚) ・・・

You're supposed to stick them into your earlobes?

Why did she get me these kind?!

I clean my ears very often, mind you.
It's just that I don't like the idea of sticking anything into my ears!
That's what Mummy always says when we were young.

So I gave it a little try but they keep dropping out (lol)

I still love my old-fashioned earphones. (=´(エ)`)ノ


妈妈给我一对白色耳机~

( ゚д゚) ・・・


这...这不是得'插'进耳朵里吗?

她为什么买这种给我呢?!

先声明: 我是有经常清理耳朵的哦!
我只是不喜欢把什么东东'插'进耳朵里!
而且小时候妈妈都是这样教我们的呀.

不过我还是试了一下,但是耳机一直掉出来 (笑)
我还是中意我的老套耳机啦. (=´(エ)`)ノ

Let me show you just how tiny my handwriting is Σ(゚ー^*)

Betcha can't even make out what I had written in my notes (lol)

PS
By the way, I really do have neat handwriting _| ̄|○


给你们看看我写的字到底有多小 Σ(゚ー^*)

我认定你们一定看不出我到底写些什么 (笑)

PS
想声明: 我的字迹还算很得体的哦  _| ̄|○

Everyone always complain about my handwriting.
It's so small that, in their words, "it's for ants to read!" (lol)
"Use a magnifying glass, if you must!" I always retort back.

I don't really care, though.
Besides, I'm proud that I can write in small fonts! σ(^。^;

The text are meant for my eyes only, I write however I want

Although I know I will need a magnifying glass as I grow older. (。・-・)


每个人都对我的字迹有意见.
我写的字很小,他们常说"你的字是写给蚂蚁看的!" (笑)
“你要看的话就用放大镜啦!” 我反驳.

我一点都毫不在乎.
能把字写得很小也是一种驕傲,不是吗? σ(^。^;

还有,字是写给自己看的,我要怎么写谁管得着

不过我很清楚,将来年纪大的时候,一定得用放大镜... (。・-・)

I saw this movie once many years ago and fell in love with it
Hmm... I remembered it was aired on a late Saturday night. (lol)

I bought the DVD months ago; was excited when I saw it in stores!
Why did it take me so long to watch it? (゚ロ゚)

Certainly a movie of my favorites☆
Starring Richard Dreyfuss; directed by Steven Spielberg.


好几年前看过这部电影那么一次,让我深深地着迷♡
嗯嗯... 我记得是在某星期六午夜播映的. (笑)

这DVD是几个月前买的;当时在店里看到便非常兴奋,终于买到了!
但我为何等到现在才看呢? (゚ロ゚)

这部电影真的是我的最爱☆
Richard Dreyfuss 主演;Steven Spielberg 执导.

Wouldn't it make life more easier or better just by using an eraser to erase your bad memories or mistakes? (o*。_。)o


假如能够用橡皮擦把不愉快的回忆、过错给擦掉...
生活会不会快了一点...舒服一点呢?  (o*。_。)o

The news channel seems to have a soothing effect on me.
I have no idea why.

Whenever I'm overseas, the first thing I do is switch on the TV and tune it to the news channel at the hotel.
Even before I go to bed, I would keep the TV(tuned to the news) on.

While I'm immersed in my reading, I would automatically switched to the News and keep it at the very lowest volume.
That way, I can keep my concentration as I can still hear some noise-like things while reading.
I just can't stay comfortable with total silence, it makes me feel lonely.

I always feel that News Anchors bring a calming effect on me.
No matter how chaotic the situation might be, they always report it as if they are telling a bedtime story.

Well, maybe it's just my imagination, though☆

PS
The news were reporting about the Harry Potter parties at various bookstores when I took the picture. (*^ー^*)

I'm taking my time to read "Deathly Hallows."
The thought of finishing the book at one go would bring the magic away. But I can't seem to stop reading (lol)

As I started on my book, I felt goosebumps and started to weep.
Not only because it's the final book, but as the story continues and finding out which characters die along the way... (´・ω・`)
(Not gonna provide any spoilers☆)


每次在看新闻的时候,总觉得很舒服.

当我到出国时,一到酒店就会把电视调到新闻频道
在临睡前,我也会把电视开着(还播着新闻哦).

还有,在我很深入的阅读小说的同时,我也会把节目转到新闻台并调到最小声
如果周围很安静的话,我会觉得很寂寞...

新闻主播在报新闻的时候,他们的语气总是那么的安稳.
无论情况有多混乱,他们在播报时,好像在对我说临睡前的故事.

嗯... 可能我想太多吧☆

PS
昨天新闻正在报道《哈利波特・终极篇 》风靡全球的同时,我把画面拍了下来 (*^ー^*)

我想慢慢地把书看完...
可是,我一开始看就想一只看下去(笑)
而且,一边看,一边起鸡皮疙瘩
我还开始哭呢~
不仅是因为这是最后一集,当故事从上一集连续下去时... (´・ω・`)

Dream Racer is the first ever Korean drama I’ve watched. The year was 1997 and it aired on Mondays & Tuesdays at 10:30pm.
So I go to bed at 12:30am on 2 week nights. Thank God I was in the afternoon session that year at school. (-_-)zzz

At the time, Korean dramas weren’t popular.
In fact, this drama was the first ever Korean drama to be aired here.
It wasn’t until 2001 when housewives and girls my age started to get addicted. Believe me when I say I’m not a K-drama addict☆

I only watch selective shows with either my favorite actor or well-scripted story. The former applies when I saw a magazine advertisement of this drama.  The storyline was okay but my focus was on the 2 male leads though. σ(^。^;
Also, the theme song and music score caught my attention

6 years ago, I came across a store selling the drama. I immediately bought it without any hesitation. Too bad it’s dubbed in Chinese and the dubbing really sucks! I watched the first few discs, got fed up and stopped watching altogether. All these years, I’ve been keeping an eye on a Korean version but…(´・ω・`)

Back then, there were hardly any Korean music available locally. My only way to record the music was using cassette tapes with my home stereo.  Few years later, I pay to convert that tape into CD. The sound wasn’t clear, of course. (T^T)

Out of the blue, I suddenly thought of the drama yesterday morning. I had great difficulty and wasn’t confident since it was an old drama and I wasn’t sure if the soundtrack was ever released. I spent 6-7 hours searching on the Internet. Just before I admit defeat, I finally found it!!After 10 years, I got the music I wanted~!!! ↖(^▽^)↗

PS
One actor in the drama is Lee Byung Hun. He’s my first favorite Korean actor with a dreamy deep voice and a true gentlemen.
Next is Won Bin who happens to share the same birthday with me.

车神传说》是我看的第一部韩剧.

那时是1997年,每逢周一、二,晚上十点半播映.
所以每个星期有两个周日晚上都会在12:30am睡觉
幸好那年我是读下午班噢. (-_-)zzz

那个时候,韩剧并没有像现在那么受欢迎.
事实上,这部剧是在本地播映的第一部韩国连续剧哟!
一直到2001年,凭着《秋天的童话》开始了韩流风潮
相信我,我可不是其中一个☆

我以选择性看某些韩剧 - 很好的剧本或者该剧中有我喜欢的演员.
我记得当时在杂志里看到《车神传说》的平面广告.
故事内容还算OK,不过我比较注意那两位男主角啦! σ(^。^;
还有,主题曲和配乐真的超级棒

6年前,我在一家店里找到这部剧的VCD!
我毫不犹豫地马上买了下来
可惜是国语配音,而且配得很烂!
看了几碟就受不了 — 索性不看了!!
这几年都一直在留意有没有在本地的商店出售元声原影可是… (´・ω・`)

那时也很难找到韩国音乐
为了录下这部剧里的歌曲、音乐,我只好用卡带和录音机来录制.
几年后,我还付钱把卡带复制成CD.
当然,质量很差. (T^T)

不知为何,昨天早上突然想起了《车神传说
因为是不旧剧,所以没把握能找到原声带也不知道到底有没有发行过.
寻找了6-7个钟头后,当我想发起的时候… 我找到了!
10年后的今天,我终于找到了呀哇呀呀!!! ↖(^▽^)↗

PS
其中一位男主角是李秉宪.
他可是我喜欢的第一位韩国演员 - 风度翩翩、拥有迷人又低沉的嗓音
接下来就是元斌 - 他还跟我同一天生日哟!!

我是看港剧长大的.从小到大看了不少连续剧.
除了《大时代》、《笑看风云》、《天地男儿》外,我另一个喜欢的港剧是《义不容情》.
小时候的我是个小小黄日华迷哦~ 我妈妈也很喜欢看温兆伦的戏.
好久没看这部剧了,真想重温一下...

以前(还有现在!)我也是个王杰迷呢~σ(^。^;
他有很多很好听的歌曲我都很喜欢.其中一首是《惦记着一些》.
这首歌是已故陈百强的热门歌曲《一生何求》后来翻唱成广东版.
2个版本我都喜欢可是我对广东版特别有感觉因为这首是《义不容情》的主题曲!

惦记着一些》和《一生何求》的音乐、歌词听的时候很伤感
可是粤语版比较会令我哭啊!  。・゚(´□`)゚・。
而且真的很符合我这两周来的心情...
