Christmas is just round the corner. I have always believed that Christmas is always an extremely magical festival. People reunited and together they celebrate this wonderful season greetings!
Apart from being in a hectic week to prepare for the season’s celebration, why not chill and reflect on what exactly you want to see others or yourself fulfil this Christmas?
Here are my checklist as I count down towards the 25th of December!
1. Build a candy house on my own – I have always admire pretty candy houses i see in pastries shops and bakeries. So i wonder, why not give myself a try and build my own? 🙂
2. Get a very classic glass cabinet for my book collections – I’m a book lover, problem is I do not have enough space to keep/display my collections.
3. Paint my Room – Speaking of painting, i love painting. I wish to have my wall painted with my imaginations. 🙂

“Everyday is a start of something beautiful.”
When it comes to this time of the year,when you realised that another year is going to pass by, and no matter what, you have to welcome the new year with open arms. The first word that came to my mind was, GRATEFUL.
I kept thinking of the things which I am really grateful of from this whole year. Honestly, there are too many to remember, or even to notice them. So right here, I would like to share a few of them.
First if all, i would say that i am grateful to have the opportunity to further my studies to the tertiary level. I am thankful for my parents who are always there for me, though i have to undergo some serious nagging most of the time. Well, i have been living with those nagging for almost 20 years now, I guess I can still bear with it.
Next thing which I am grateful of in my life will be having a wonderful brother. He is wonderful in such a way that, he will do all his best for the goodness of the family. I still remember back then when I was studying A-LEVELS in Penang, once a while he will come over from KL for some work stuff, and whenever he come over, he will bring me out for a meal. My brother and I are very close, we share things, we fight, and we love. Sometimes, I thought, what would I be without my Brother. And for that, I thank God, for He provides, He provides to our need, yet it is sad to say, it takes us a little longer to realise that God really know what we really need.
Besides, the next thing that I am grateful of, is this man who came into my life. I’ve never thought I will ever meet someone like him. And, I honestly didn’t know he will be some important to me when I first met him. He is so fussy, so annoying, so lazy. But, he knows how to make me smile, even with tears on my eyes. Both of us has actually experienced heartache in relationships before we even know each other. However, we decided to take this step and give love a try on both of us. Because, “You can never make the same mistake twice, if you did it is not a mistake but a choice.” So, once again, i would like to thank God for bringing him into my life.
Last but not least, God answered prayers! I’ve been praying for my dad and his siblings, to bring them closer to each other. And, this Christmas, they are here in KL to celebrate Christmas with us. I can see from my dad’s eyes that he is very happy.
In short, i would consider that Life is indeed wonderful. Everyday is indeed a blessing. Here’s a song i would like to share. Please click on the link below. 🙂
With love, J.

Some says life is complicated, while some says life is not complicated, whereas it is us human who makes this life complicated.
Well, i agree to the latter. It is us who makes our life complicated, not all the time, but maybe MOST of the time.
For me, i don’t care how complicated life is.
I don’t care how difficult life is.
I don’t care what my future is.
I will take life as it is.
I have make many mistakes, some are hard to be forgotten, some are like scars, they will always there no matter how hard you try to learn then forget, it is never easy to forget the pass. Because, it is the pass the makes your present a better one.
Sometimes, people asked why are you a Christian, why do you choose to believe in a God that you have never seen before?
Well, confront me, i will share it to you in detail.
No, i am not going to disclose it here. 😀
I think, what’s most important is, live it to the fullest.
Dream, dream and dream again. Never stop dreaming, never stop taking your life to the higher ground.
Because, if you stop, you will be like in a coma. You might be having a steady breathing, and steady heartbeat, but you are not moving around, you are not fighting to catch your dreams.
Since i was a young girl, i dreamed. And i have many dreams that has not been fulfilled yet.
1) I want to be able to travel around the world, to see what are the things that words can’t describe, and to feel the feelings that your heart can’t contain, and to breathe the air that can make your soul rejoice.
2) I want to see a shooting star, and of course in time to make a wish. 🙂
3) I want to get a degree and maybe masters, and get a job that i like.
4) I want to be with someone that i love, and to get married in a church.
5) Last, but not least, the most important of all, i don’t want to stop serving my Abba Father.
“Every move we make, every step we take, every breath we breath, it is all about You Lord.”

Here i am!
Still alive, still surviving through to this very end of the year.
Wow, a year has come to an end, very very fast.
2010 are filled with memories which will remain forever in the deep recesses of my mind.
Whether it’s sad or happy, disappointment or satisfaction.
It shall stop here. And a new journey, starts at 00:00 hour, 1st January 2011.
For me, 2010 is a year where I’ve learned huge stuff.
Things which I’ve never thought i will go through with such hard feelings, and regrets, yet I’m glad that I’ve learned a lesson from every single incident.
I’ve learned that family will always be the next most important person after God.
I’ve learned that, unless you yourself make a difference for yourself, and not treating yourself like trash, others will not treat you like one too.
And most of all, I’ve learned to let go, to let go of something even though it is something precious.
It was not a happy ending for this year, but yeah, i will reassemble every single pieces of myself, and move on.
Sometimes, you just have to, because there will always a good reason behind every incident.
So, don’t blame yourself or others for it.
Instead, move on, and be strong so that tomorrow will always be a better day.
Life is never easy to live, but never ever make yourself unhappy over worldly stuff, for they are like cancer to your life.
Lastly, i would like to ask for forgiveness to each and everyone of you, if i have ever offended any of you.
Let’s be merry and Happy New Year to each and everyone of you reading this.
So, let’s start a new year my friend!
2011, BRING IT ON!
With love, Joanne. 🙂

September 6, 2010
The buzz of the alarm clock woke me up. I opened my eyes, and I can see the sunlight streaming through my window, announcing the beginning of a brand new day. It is Saturday, usually I will wake up early and go outing with my boyfriend. Well, not today. My tears falling, and my mind wondering, old memories appeared one by one. A sob burst up through my lungs, and I gasped for air.
It was Dec 25th, Christmas, a day full of joy and happiness. We were walking along a long stretch of beach, he held my hand tight, we were talking about almost everything in the world. We were laughing and fooling around with each other. That was one of the happiest moment in my life I could ever forget. His arms around me, holding me to his body, his touch is taking all the doubts and fears away. That feeling erased my shyness away, I looked at him and smiled, he tightened his arm around me. Our faces were only inches apart, for one moment, I felt as if the whole world belongs to us, just both of us alone. He kissed me softly, I don’t know how to respond, shut my eyes tight is the only thing I could do. I can feel the heat and intensity, it’s like we are almost going to explode. That was the moment, he made me believed, he made me fell in love.
Few weeks after Christmas, in a cold and quiet night, it was late but I am still waiting for him to come back home. At that instance, two policemen came knocking at my door, I was informed that my boyfriend passed away in an accident. My heart stopped, I wanted to shout out loud, I could not help myself, I took a deep breath, and tears welled out of the corners of my eyes and rolled down my temples into my hair. I felt restless.
And now, I am all alone, I loved him more that he gave me credit for. And I doubt I will fall in love with another man again. Forever, and ever was what he used to say. Forever, now, doesn’t seem so long. But, in the deep recesses of my heart, I know that he will always be there. And so, Saturday morning, will be a day that I will remind myself that I have to be strong to walk on every day, because I know that one day, I will see him in paradise.
