*HUGS* TOTAL! give Ali more *HUGS*
Get hugs of your own

Thursday, December 30, 2004

I swear that my Dad is trying to fatten me up. But not to eat me or anything (i.e. like Hansel in Hansel and Gretel), 'cos that would be weird. A few weeks ago, my Dad and I went to my grandma's house. She commented that I look much thinner. Since then, my Dad has been making me eat more food. And since he is on holiday leave, every hour or so he would ask if I want anything to eat.

Well, that's my holiday so far, hope everyone else's was as good.

Our whole extended family went out to a restaurant on Tuesday. After we had finished dinner, my sister bought a fortune cookie. It costed 50cents... so expensive! Anyway, I thought the fortune was quite funny, so that's the random quote of the day!

Yeah Angela, give me back the money you stole from me! Hehe.

Whoa, man. So many hugs in so little days. Extremely extremely surprising. Mind-blowing. Shockerama. I am running out of adjectives to write.

So it's one of two scenarios:
(1) The program had a malfunction or something; or
(2) Someone was extremely bored

Anyway, thanks so much! Haha, the first thing I did after I saw the hugs count was brag to my sister. And she was so jealous. So thanks for making her jealous! Made my day.

Except that she is reading what I am typing right now, so she will probably hit me now.

See, she just hit me. So sad, to get bullied by your much younger sister.

Ahhh... guess what day is today? That's right, it's the start of my adult life. Tonight I am going to my uncle's house, where most of my relatives (on my Dad's side) will be. Not for a birthday celebration, but for some wierdo Chinese festival. Mum had a hard time explaining it to me, something about before Chinese New Year, there is some celebration thing.

On another note, my Dad has the same birthday as me. You would think that he would then remember my birthdate as well. You know when it's your birthday, the Pastor sends you a birthday card? Well, I get my card every year on the 9th of September. My Dad filled out the form wrong. Oh well. :)

And below is a passage of writing which I stole from The Word for Today. But I also read it once in one of those Chicken Soup for the Soul books. So some of you may have read it before. But I like it. Very fitting.

After awhile, you learn the difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul; you learn that life does not mean leaning, and company does not always mean security; you begin to learn that kisses are not contracts and presents are not promises, and you begin to accept your defeats with your head high and your eyes ahead, with the grace of an adult, not the grief of a child. You learn to build all your roads on today, because tomorrow's ground is too uncertain for plans, and futures have a way of falling down mid-flight. After awhile, you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. You learn to plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers; and you learn that, by God's sustaining grace, you can really endure; that you really are strong, and that you really do have worth!

Cousin's Wedding

So, I went to my cousin’s wedding yesterday. The actual wedding ceremony was on a paddle steamer which started of at the South Perth jetty, and went around the Swan River. This was actually the first time I’ve been on the Swan River in a boat. So it was really nice. The view was excellent.

As Uncle Norman (a.k.a. the bride’s father) and my cousin (Pauline) walked down the aisle, the groom (Daniel) sang a really nice song to her (I have no idea what song, but it was really nice). Maybe that was the reason why Uncle Norman was literally laughing all the way down the aisle. When the song finished, another uncle yelled out to Daniel, “You should be the next Australian Idol!”

I swear I have the strangest family.

The night reception was held at Observation City in Scarborough. There was a really nice band who sang really old songs which only my parents would know. They even performed some magic tricks which were extremely funny as well.

After the speeches and food, the newly married couple had their first dance… sorry the photo isn’t very good, but hey, it was dark.

My Auntie Mary thought that it would be funny if all my guy cousins would surround her in a photo…

So then another uncle of mine decided to have all the girl cousins in a photo…

And here’s another picture of all my cousins. Note: my brother isn’t in any of these pictures because he had to leave to go to another party.

And lastly, Serena, I told you that I would post a picture of us on my blog. So here it is.

New title

So, in less than a week, I am going to be rather old. I will be in my twenties. My twenties!! When someone asks, "How old are you?" I will reply, "I am in my twenties."

Depressing moment here peoples.

Anyway, Hooi has reminded me that I should change my blog title. So does anyone have any suggestions? Nothing depressing, like "entering adulthood" or something.

Wow, posting three times in three days. That must be some sort of record. For me anyway.

Today I am going to my church's Christmas Kids Party. I didn't really want to help out, but I knew that I would feel guilty if I didn't. Guilt is a great motivator. ;)

And the Christmas Pagent is on tonight. I heard on the radio that they are expecting 30,000 people in the city tonight. So good luck to Jo, Jess, and Chrissy in driving to the Pete Murray concert! I'm sure you guys will be fine. :P

My friend's brother passed away yesterday. He was 26 years old.

My friend and I have known each other for about 16 years (since pre-primary), so she would be my oldest friend. I have vague recollections of us playing with barbie dolls on her front lawn when we were kids (she lives on the same street as me -- only 8 houses away). She is one of my closest friends, yet I have no idea what to say or what to do.

Just hope for the best. :)

God's timing is perfect.

Today is the 9th of December. I always lose track of days when I'm on holidays. This whole week has been so hot!! Hopefully the rest of the summer won't be like this.

Did you know that Woolworths turns 80 this month? Back in December 1924, Woolworths Stupendous Bargain Basement opened its doors in Sydney. Today, there are 708 stores right across Australia. I read this in the Woolworths' magazine Australian Good Taste: The food magazine with more.

And not sure about the punctuation: is it Woolworths, Woolworths's, or Woolworths' to signify ownership? I can tell those years at public schools really helped my grammar. I chose Woolworths'. Gotta love those apostrophes. ;)

I watched Scrubs last night. Haven't watched it for awhile, but there was a really funny part where one guy gave a riddle to another guy.. It went something like this:

Question: How do you get 30 cents out of two coins when one coin isn't 10cents?

Any ideas?

Answer: A 20 cent coin and a 10 cent coin. One coin isn't 10 cents, but the other coin is.

Well, I thought that it was amusing.

It's December already? Can't believe that it's nearly Christmas. Where has all the time gone? This year has gone really fast.
