Got to get back to work. So much to do which is just crazy.
Quote of the day…
La vie est la vie, defends-la. Mere Teresa
Firstly.. Happy Birthday Daffy !!
This is the birthday girl thinking of what else she can cook to fatten us up….
This is her and her toilet-mate..
See who's the wannabe?
Samedi, dans Five Rivers de Leamington..
I love Leamington. If only Warwick Uni is in Leamington.
More celebrations today. Could not take pics because of low battery.
But I am sure there will be a colourful account on everyone's blogs. Basically we had a great diner and the followed by watching Supersize Me. I so want to go to Mc Donalds now! And also I feel guilty for not exercising as much as I should, have been planning but not doing anything because of the cough plus the very bad English weather.
This weekend has been so good but like all good things came with the price of a mountain of work which will soon take over Mount Everest to be the highest mountain in the world. But whatever la..
Lastly as I was riding my bike back from work today, I thought of dad. It was cold and I wished that Dad would pick me up. ( I know it was only a short ride back to Claycroft from the Arts Center but still it was freezing..) As the wind blew, I thought about the times when I told dad that he was spoiling me and I would never ever be independent. He drove me to school. He helped me with my homework. He would make a cuppa Milo for me every night. He would do errands for me. Anything I need, any problem I had all I had to was to shout for Pa. I remember I had a road accident once and I was too flabbergasted and shocked and all I could say was 'Please call my dad. He will sort it out.' When I asked him to let me be more independent he said ' Ah one day you will be, don't worry.'
Even though, I have learnt to be independent now, I still sometimes yearn for dad's cuppa Milo.

A woman who ‘sat’ for what she truly believed in.
May she rest in peace and her story continue to be the inspiration of many.

J'ai dejeune avec mes amis..
Fel et moi fait Salmon avec Pumpkin Rice..
Le Pumpkin… Elle s'appelle Genevieve..
Daffy et Stella fait chocolat pudding..
C'est trop bonne dejeune. Mes amis, c'est tres gentil.
I smiled, knowing that I have all these friends around me.
I just thank God for His Amazingness. I thank Him for inspiring me in His own way. I thank Him for being my strength and my rock through good and bad times. I pray He will also guide my friends in all that they do, may they come to know Him and trust Him in all that they do.

I remember the first time I sold programmes we got extra 10 pounds and I thought 'Hey, I made a profit for the poor Arts Center but no the manager made me feel bad for days by telling me that the money probably belonged to some good old elderly couple.'
If I get it short I would feel awful too cos I am making the poor Arts Center poorer.
And today it was perfect !! I could hardly believed it.
Something struck me while I was day dreaming , waiting for the interval to start….
'Life is like a jig saw puzzle, it all fits perfectly in the end.'

Friday nite again… The plan was diner + movie…
But we ended up having diner + deep conversation initiated by Fel.
Stella created … this pasta with cheese and baked vegies which was delicious.. C'est trop deliciuse..
I am gonna call it The Nameless Pasta. Not very creative here I'm afraid.
I made apple crumble which I think Eyore likes..
It was good but it would have been better with ice cream. Over-slept and didn't made it to get ice cream from Tescos.
The DVD just wouldn't play for us tonight.
So what's next?
Who else to cheer us up but Fel !!
Look how happy she is..
In her Kool Xanana's shirt..
Fel and Stella..
It was a lovely night, talking about deep things.
Fel, I will pray for you that one day you may see the light at the end of the tunnel. You are going through something simmilar that I went through and one day you will look back at this phase and understand the reason for it all. Only you and you alone will understand.

Had my first good diner for ages…
I have been feeling too sick to cook. Have been eating stuff like soup with bread or rice porridge or noodles soup.
Was gonna choose one of the three today but suprise, suprise Joanne brought me vegie lasagna.. I think the lasagna did cheer me up and I finally drag myself to Tesco to get some food… ok besides being lazy to cook, I have been living without any real food for the past few days and the reason I am sick (or just plan lazy.).
A funny song that my cousin kept playing on his car the last time I got a ride from him. It is super cheesy but once in a while whats wrong with a bit of cheesy music..
Lao Shu Ai Da Mi
wo ai ni ai zhe ni
jiu xiang lao shu ai da mi
bu guan you duo shao feng yu wo dou hui yiran pei zhe ni
wo xiang ni xiang zhe ni
buguan you duo me de ku
zhi yao neng rang ni kai xin wo shen me dou yuan yi
zhe yang ai ni
I love you, loving you, as a mouse loves rice
Even if it rains, I'm always by your side
I miss you, missing you
I donít care how hard it is
I just want you to be happy
I will do anything for you
Sorry, not very good translation. Lost the essence in transaltion.
I like this cheesy song even though, I don't understand, how one can love someone like a mouse loves a rice. It doesn't make sense cos the mouse eats the rice. Is it some kind of obssessive love! Oh well, whatever..

Got into a coughing fit when mum called which just wouldn't stop until she got all worried and asked me to go to bed.
Have been staying in most of the time. Avoiding going to public places lest I infect innocent people with the evil bug. Being down with cold actually has some good in it. I actually felt less guilty when I procrastinate my work to watch movies. I am sick so I need plenty of rest.
Something most strange happenned while I was sleeping. I remember blurly Ef coming in to use my computer to set up a Workgroup and I said hi and went back to bed. Then I woke up and started doing some long overdued reading. Felt hungry. Realised the room door was locked. How strange if it was locked, how did Ef got in. And I thought hmm, maybe she locked it for me but when I asked her, she said she didn't and it is not possible to lock the door from outside without the keys. The only logical explanation is I sleep walk to lock the door.
That must be it otherwise it is really spooky.
