This & Thats.

Hello, loves!

It’s already Wednesday – how has the week been treating you so far? Just fine, I hope. I’ve been running around quite a bit throughout the week and also happened to chance upon a beautiful white cheongsam for Chinese New Year (Spring festival). I made it a point, some four years back, to always don a cheongsam on the first day of the festival. Soon, it’s gonna be a family affair, and I’m just so excited for that day to come where all the ladies in the family are beautifully dressed up in the traditional costume. Definitely a sight to behold. :)

On a different note, I came across some very pretty trinkets and flowers around the malls recently. All have seemed to really catch my attention. I go weak in the knees when I see all these pretty little things everywhere. Even if there’s nothing much to do, a glance at such beautiful displays would already make my day. I guess I’m quite easy to please, hehe. All these little aesthetically pleasing things truly makes each day a little extra fun and interesting. I find joy in such things, do you?

Also, not forgetting that the sweetheart from Love, S had awarded me with an award. It happens to be my second award, as well. Thanks bunches, S! :)

And now, I shall pass this award on to the gorgeous Valentine, Sher, Eliza & Chloe. Hope it brightens up your day like how it brightened up mine.

This should be it for now! Smile more because it has some sort of positive-happy-effect emotionally, hehe! It’s psychologically proven, by the way. ;) Do have a bright and lovely week ahead, darlings.

    Hi sweety,

    Just to explain my post you didn’t understand : In fact, this post talks about my memories box, in this box there are letters, photos that remind me some happy or sad moments of my life, persons I miss because they’re not “here” anymore …

    Katrina:: Thanks, love! Actually I do, in the fitting room – Was wanting to compare it with other shops. But when I actually get it fitted to my size and such, I shall take another picture and post it up, perhaps! :) x

    Rock my Bunny: Oh, I’m so sorry to hear about those things in the box & yay for the happy moments captured. I hope you’re doing just fine over there. :) Chin up, always! And thank you so much for translating your post for me. I truly appreciate it. xx

    […] Chinese New Year is over and done with. On the first day, right after bathing and changing into my cheongsam, I went downstairs to feast on vegetables – don’t get me wrong, they were absolutely […]
