Beautiful in its Time

Every time I get upset about my prayers not being answered when I wanted them to, I would always try to fight back my impatience by recalling that precious memory a few years ago when my nephew, Waki, who was nine years old at the time, finally received his much-awaited Christmas present. Several months before Christmas, my nephew…

A Wise Exchange

Here’s another very touching story from an anonymous author. It speaks volume about the love of our Heavenly Father to us. Be blessed!        One day, a little girl named Jenny was with her mother in the grocery store. She saw a toy pearl bracelet worth USD20. She became giddy with excitement and…

The Dream, the Cloud and the Man behind the Cloud

(I found this blog in my old ‘multiply’ account which I posted almost 8 years ago. I’m so glad I was able to save it before my account was deleted. I just want to re-post it here so I don’t lose it. Hope you get blessed as you read it. It’s quite long though, so…

Signs!

There are times when my mind gets too preoccupied by things I desperately wanted to have and achieve. Then I start to worry over and over, then I wonder and ask myself, “how can it be? It just seems so impossible!” I try to figure out what to do and how to do it? Where…

2014 in Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. Here’s an excerpt: The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many…

Finishing Strong

I just want to say that one of the best things that has happened to me this year was actually being able to join and finish strong in a 10k race. I know, I hate running or any form of physical exercise that makes me tired. When I started my fitness journey just a few…

Overwhelmed

It’s true that God can use the greatest pain in your life to bless others. I’m still overwhelmed by the response I received (and still receiving) from my blog, Single, 30(ish) and Thriving which I almost deleted out of fear of criticism. When I published it, I only asked for just ‘one’ soul to be…

Through thick and thin

When woman is sad, depressed, lonely or feeling blue – it doesn’t always mean she is incomplete or insecure. It only goes to show that she is a human being capable of feeling her emotions. So, word of advice to well-meaning people who claim to be just ‘trying’ to help – please don’t over analyze…

No More Tears, No More Geek!

“You need to put one to two drops of this artificial tears on each eye at least six times a day in the next four weeks until your eyes have completely healed,” instructed my eye surgeon after I have had a PRK surgery 3 years ago. When I heard the doctor prescribed this to me,…

10 Things I Want My Daughter to Know About Working Out

Originally posted on wellfesto:
Mid-way through a recent group exercise class, the teacher lost me.  She didn’t lose me because of some complicated step sequence or insanely long set of burpees; I mentally checked out because of a few words she kept saying over and over.  “Come on!  Get that body ready for your winter…

When Kids Set New House Rules

My 9-year old niece posted this sign on the fridge to warn her 5-year old brother NOT to repetitively make a mess of their mom and dad’s bedroom. My sister forwarded this photo to me recently. Up until now, I still couldn’t stop giggling. I wonder how my little nephew responded to this (he can’t…

Jamboree

I am so blessed with such a happy childhood. Whenever I would look back at those years, I couldn’t help but laugh. How crazy and innocent we were back then! One particular memory that stuck in my head was that summer of ’86, when our entire clan went to our traditional annual summer outing in Jamboree,…
