Ain't he cute? :)
Look at the fat cat staring up at us.

In TW till Jul 28

It's great to catch up with frens.
I've not been back here in Taiwan since my dad was sick.
This time, I got to come on a last minute work trip.
Busy busy busy working ... but at least it's in the company of vendors who have also become friends. :)

Some random pics

Bye bye Long John Silver's .... We will resume our rendezvous after my wedding. :P

If you are thinking, "That doesn't look like Shar..." You're so right!

That's the decoy I set up to pass off as me. 
It was a hi-stress day. 

We haven't queued at our Jurong West church building in eons! I had almost forgotten what it felt like. While trying to get as much air-con as possible, I whipped out my hp and asked the man to smile. 

Me and my Harry Potter buddy Nicole!

I call him Sunshine Baby Kaiser.
He smiles and laughs at everything, and is an absolute darling!

Go green, everyone! :D

You can also do a search for GREAT QUOTES on the Appstore. 
Just double check that the developer's name is JayAxe!

Thanks for your support! :) 
I'm off to rave over my amazing husband-to-be!

Peevish laughter

I was in a grouchy mood last night.
Cos of a combination of several factors.  
Then I looked at my room and got even more peeved cos I badly wanted to pack it full-force, but I couldn't cos I had many other things to do! 
So there I was, stalking in and out of my room with a "don't touch me" face....

Then the fiance called, and he asked why I sounded so stressed.
I said, "I'm very MANG ZANG!!" and started to tell him why.
To his credit, he laughed and light-heartedly took all the complaining in his stride. 
He even played along, which made me laugh.

But I was still crabby, until he suggested something for our honeymoon which completely changed my mood!
He felt maybe we should go for a shorter and cheaper honeymoon, and use the money for something else.
That was a huge risk to take, telling a crabby woman to give up on her ideal honeymoon!
Logically, the thought of not visiting Europe should have made us go, "HUHHHHH...."
But on the contrary, I found myself smiling from ear to ear.
Cos it's something I had been thinking about too, but I was just trying to find a good time to share with him.
I think we both felt it was a God-inspired thing.
Especially as we were so in agreement about it. 
And everything else seemed to fall into place with this decision.

Then somehow the conversation led us to share about some stuff we felt God was speaking to us during the day and week...
So, by the time we hung up, I was one happy girl. :)
Let's give the man of the house a big hand!

Speaking of laughter, don't these precious couples look so happy??

Highlights of today:

- I got ready in 15 mins; earned JX's applause for the feat. 
- We were blessed by Dr. Bernard's sharing at the Expo service this morning. 
- I caught up with Nic and Daz over dessert (this one was when I was still awake).
- JX's parents successfully asked (on behalf of their son) for my hand in marriage ... or what we call "ti qin" in Chinese.
- Both families had a good time food tasting at our wedding dinner venue ... the conversation was practically non-stop from when they met at my place right through the entire dinner. Amazing for a first meeting. :)
- Caught up with JX, Nic, Daz, Celine over drinks at Esplanade after the dinner (I was already half gone here ... and the Dirty Harry didn't help things ... JX left earlier cos he was even more zonked out than me!)

So now I'm off to bed, thanking God for a good albeit tiring day. :)

I lurf this song.

Calm down
Deep breaths
And get yourself dressed instead
Of running around
And pulling all your threads saying
Breaking yourself up

If it's a broken part, replace it
But, if it's a broken heart then brace it
If it's a broken heart then face it

Hang on
Help is on the way
Stay strong
I'm doing everything

Hold your own
Know your name
And go your own way

Are the details in the fabric
Are the things that make you panic
Are your thoughts results of static cling? 

Everything will be fine
Everything in no time at all
Hearts will hold
