What a grown-up girl like me would say.

For those who do not really know, or might have known, or somewhat guessed, my fav. is Hello Kitty. Hard to believe? Not really. You just got to know me.=)
Real name: Kitty

Birthday: November 1

Birthplace: Suburban London, England

Weight: The same as 3 apples

Likes: Small, cute things. Candy, stars, goldfish, etc.

Kitty is a cheerful, warm-hearted little girl. Baking cookies is her forte, but what she enjoys most is eating a slice of Mama's apple pie! Kitty and her twin sister Mimmy are the best of friends.

The year passed us by in love and trust, one more gorgeous year just at the doorsteps =)From somebody to my hubby-to-be!Thank you Father!

Alen is my "mistress". I am glad to have a friend like him simply because his heart is genuine towards me. We have walked a year of friendship in NIE and I can count on him to swerve me back on track whenever I seem to choreograph my life wrongly. We can talk about anything and eveything and I can always be myself around him. I do not yet know where God has sent such a great soul to my life but he sure brightens up the gloomy days in school. I enjoy fighting fire with him in school and working hard, paying our dues and laughing our hearts out each time to offset tensions around. We are quite different, but we are doppelgangers for each other. We have a certain passion for life and we think along the same tangent as well. we may look like the oddest pair of friends around but I am sure this frienship can prove itself to the test of time. I cannot ask for more, except that he will be an overcomer, like a river, through hard knocks and crashes that life offers in an oversentimental way. To 2008, we shout a big cheer and may fireworks fall in our way in celebration and joy.

Helpless in a Manger

It must be eons since I have written anything that is solid. December came the way I thought it will, and it sure did. It is the most fast-moving month and events crudely overlap and stack bluntly on one another. I hardly can breathe. I hardly can say no to anything. That is the hallmark of what December can be and perhaps, should be. Who really cares about the individual?

If Christmas is really not about partying till one drops, or being totally jolly with grins and smiles, Christmas then, should be one of solitude. That is why the song “Silent Night” is still sung after two decades or more. The image of Jesus as a cute baby in a manger is not just an icon that is pulled out every year’s Christmas. The Nativity story is not just a folktale or legend. Far from the helplessness as a baby in a manger, Jesus is about a man’s death on the cross, and a life resurrected, leaving behind an empty tomb. Jesus is no icon, image or legend, Jesus is about a life given up for our lives. So that we can live today.

So, what I want Christmas to be is to understand more about Jesus in our peace, and use the time given to rest, recuperate, reflect and set the foot right for next year. I cannot imagine partying till the 31st and tada, another year again. I must be drifting off from the crowd, or the norm. But I am happy. Happy to be quiet, happy to be contented.

Here I pray out loud to God my Father. For next year, I want to be freed of my time to do the things I want and need to do. I also want to love more than ever, love difficult people in my life and love unconditionally. Lastly, I want to have more money so that I can give and share more. Sounds generic, but I really want to achieve these next year. It is my last year of school and first year of working fulltime and for a very long time onwards.

Till next year, I will still be with Him =)

Even if Christmas is not filled with enjoying fun with loved ones, it is never lonely with YOU around. Thank you Father !! =)

the year ends

curtains fall.
the year starts to unwind itself like a loose old video tape.
I hardly have time to ponder.
or have some resolutions to frame.
my thoughts splatter like some sour puke.
ready for an extreme hangover the day after.
and the body, aches with short spurts of energy.
exclaiming "All I want for Christmas is You".
my imagination pulls tight like threaded pearls.
but breaks at God's conviction on me.
my song is in tunes of love.
prideful ego like a little child.
I cannot dream anymore.
my eyes need to fix themselves on the lamp's light.
words must not fall.
smiles, are about God's glory
that is not a thousand miles away.
but within me.
the year ends.
the curtains unveiled.
it is here again.

Inflate thy love

weddings are joys that inflate the souls

the chilly wind this christmas must then be well spent

recalling little night talks in our spaces
friendship becomes glistening rich with thoughts abound
doors of a fresh dimension has unshut

somewhat knackered from the car that was raped
where imagination splatters immediately
boosting the little happiness that we jealously guard

chatters and tea complete the prowess of nights
lady sun hides itself too frequently too shy
the earth shakes past the exhausted souls
much of surprise arrives at dawn break

food as the basic enjoyment
presents its multicolored variety
bloody rice cakes warring with smelly tofu like hooded warriors
salted chicken too sexy to resist
all tastes mashing and melting into sweet snow dust

farewell till now

journey can only extend itself so long
but words can afford much

the chilly wind this christmas must then be well spent
