happy holidays!


can you say, tattoo?
imagine someone raising their sleeve...
and revealing THIS! 8D

well... it's been a while since i last blogged,
but here's a quick update for december :D

i've had a cozy winter break so far.
filled with lots of love
and lots of pandas.

it's the start of a collection lol XD
- panda keychain
- panda t-shirt
- panda bag
and my personal favorite,
- panda plushie :)

thank you all! for the gifts, and for you.
i love you all so much, words can't even come close...
i have to admit, being single during the holidays
can bring you down, just a little...
you look around you, love at every corner.
it surrounds you... yet it's not to you.
my life has been blessed because of your life.
i'm happier when i'm with you, knowing i'm not alone.
thank you for making me feel loved, you know who you are.

now looking online for the movie, 'secret', w/ jay chou
 and cooking japanese-style chicken, called karaage :)
LOL watch all parts, it all comes together.
for the 2nd page, change to "forever2" ^

ready for a new start?

chinese new year begins on
VALENTINE'S DAY ♥ (2.14.10)

year of the tiger

hello there :)
if you follow up on things like horoscopes & astrology...
2010 year of the tiger forecasts:

- drama
- intensity
- change
- travel

the year of the tiger is known for
seizing opportunities (carpe diem!)
and making the most out of your talent.

for those of you who were born on the year of the dog...
(like me!) this will be a good, active year. isn't that lucky? :)
2014 year of the horse will be our next good year.
then 2018 year of the dog, 2022 year of tiger, etc.

2010 is our year for improving in fortune $ and friendship.

our season is autumn.
may to aug = good chance in love.
sept to nov = career opportunities.
our stone is diamond.
our time of day is 7-9 pm.
our flower is marigold. pretty :)
our color is silver & red.
our challenge is to let go of the past and have the strength
to ask for help, rather than keeping it all bottled in.

BECAUSE 2009 year of the ox was a difficult year for us.
this is the year we heal, move on, and have a fresh start.

just imagine what lies before you... :D

p.s. if you want to know about a different zodiac animal,
just ask and i'll sum it up for you :)

[woo my first attempt at a philosophical post!]

at this very moment, i feel so...
like i'm locked up in a cage,
and that if i wait long enough,
someone will come along and set me free.
but then again...
everyone else is trapped in their own cage too.

i'll just have to wait and grow stronger.

wait for one strong enough to break away from their cage
and then free me from mine.
or grow strong enough to break away from my cage
and then free someone else.

do you know what i mean?

anyway... uh... XD
waiting takes patience.
patience takes strength.
how to get that strength?

the kind of people that...
- help you grow as a person
- learn more about yourself
- decipher life's puzzles with
- comfort you in your loneliest hours
- respect you and your beliefs
- appreciate what you do for them
- trust in your honest judgement
- will always be there for you
and love you unconditionally.

did i forget something? :)

the power of ♥ can conquer anything!
love is pure strength.
pure strength is something i need.

now i'm not asking for a bouquet of roses,
a box of chocolates, or a love letter.
but i ask that if you believe
YOU have the strength to free someone from their chains,
do what true friends and family would do.

that is all. XD
friends + family = love
love = strength

friends and family
give you love and strength.
