Finding Happiness!

being happy,finding happiness,happiness,positivity

Finding Happiness instead of waiting for Happiness to find you!

I just wanna share a quick post while I'm on the go.

Now and then, I will have my thoughts "let-loose" and it will wander from the north pole till the south pole. Sometimes, it simply went out of the world.

Of course, at some point in time, I will be reflecting (its an in-born habit that's been there since I'm ever having a conscious thought process).

I will think about what I've done recently, and perhaps until i'm super young and memories are now a fuzz. No matter what I reflect on, somehow or rather, my thoughts will find itself at home with happy thoughts & recollections.

This kind of set a good state of mind for me, especially when you are having days / moments that just doesn't wanna be kind to you. When this happens, most of the time it not only reset you r state of mind, your feelings, it also does this thing I would call, your "static field". This change always bring about positivity in you, and around you, and definitely brings about a "happy cycle" as I would like to call it.

I used to be rather "emo" before I was 12, although I was cheery, but many times emo. I believe it was hormones at work during puberty. But as life gets tougher as you grow up, it gets harder to steer clear of being emotionally down.

So how do you stay happy? You can expect nature to take care of that but sometimes things just doesn't work out. I think that its easier to rely on yourself to find happiness than for you to sit around, complain that life's never easy, or you've try to appreciate the little things in life but everyone and everything is going against you.. Blah blah..so on..

What I do is, like I shared earlier, allow your thoughts to take a stroll, You could maneuver it to your mist precious memories that you've been ever so delighted and high-spirited. Or, just start by truly appreciate what you have instead of what you dont have.

The chinese saying goes: 比bi 上shang 不bu 足zu, 比bi 下xia 有you 余yu

When you compare yourself to those whom you think living a much better life than you, obviously you felt like yours is miserablr. But look at it differently, comparing yours to those whom you think are unfortunate, how do you feel?

Lastly, (as its getting too long and typing on hp is tiring too) I love the chinese saying that goes:

知zhi 足zu 常chang 乐le,笑xiao 口kou 常chang 开kai

It means to be appreciative of what you have, happiness & laughters will always be with you.

Ok, time to stop.... Haven't done such a long post on "thoughts & sharing".. It's sure gonna be interesting when I read it again years later. Xp

Happy Valentines' Day!!

Wow~ It's the day of the year where retailers sends out the hype and increase the prices for simple things which we can also indulge any other day.. but then for today, it is so special that everything will be priced and viewed differently!

When I was single, I used to enjoy the hype and the romance in the air while wondering what's it gonna be like when I have my better-half..

Hmm.. ever since last year's V-day, I think it does makes a different when you have a special someone who celebrates this day with you.

For me, it was very random, unplanned, surprised.. coz we simply went to our neighbourhood park to have a packed dinner (from some food retailers of coz), and enjoy a sip of drinks or two..

When he sent me home, he was just playing with the guitar and initially it was just some random pieces and his made-up lyrics (coz he's bad at remembering lyrics?? not sure..).. I was just enjoying the moment, admiring him while he strummed, and thinking that he is talented with musical instrument (yea, I know many plays a guitar, but I prefer to think that my guy is pretty talented XD).

Before I realised, his humming & made-up lyrics to some pieces suddenly became a song for me.. a song he sang about me, for me!! At the moment when it hit on me, I was so overwhlemed with emotions, the warmth was astonishing!! Apart from the surge of emotions, I was also wondering if I shoot start filming him!! hahaha.. but my senses got better of me to simply enjoy this exclusive performance and allow our hearts to rejoice~ It moved me so much that before I knew it.. tears well-up and flowed as he sang to me his love and his feelings.. Definitely Unforgettable~ My first V-day... Thank you dear~!!

What about yours?

Heh heh.. I'm wondering what's up-coming for this year's but I am also trying hard not to anticipate too much as whatever that I have now on a day to day basis.. I believe is more than enough to last a life time. XD (I know I know.. MUSHY TO THE MAX!! )

Google~ The dream Co. to be in!

I came upon this website which organized a conference in UK for employees' benefit. Being a HR professional, I am very interested in the content of this conference, hence I went into the listing where the presenters have allowed their slides to be downloaded.

Here, I came upon these set of slides by

Google, Olivia J Husemeyer,

It is quite an interesting presentation which also inspires me on my plans for myself and what I can do for my organization in the future (hopefully new future).

Check it out!!

2012 Calendar

Hi everyone

Just a quick entry about this site that allows you to print calendar off their site!


I googled and found them under the search results. Fast, easy and hassle-free.

You can also include your country's public holiday to be printed, choose between year-view or monthly views etc. They even provide a simple widget  to be added into your website/blog. see below sample:


Powered by Blank Calendar

That's all for now~ XD

I shall soon look out for CSS template to beef up the look of my blog! Coz blogspirit doesn't comes with lotsa free & pretty templates to use, but they allow you to customize it with your own scripts and such. I still like what it provides and the name BlogSpirit just twinkles in the ears better than blogger/blogspot. XD

[Makeup Pictorial] CNY-inspired look in Glittery Red

Happy Chinese New Year~!!!
Xin Nian Kuai Le!!
Gong Xi Fa Cai Hao Yun Lai~

Yea, so it is a makeup pictorial (Tutorial) which I've posted on my Health & Beauty Blog!

With great influence by the festive season, I decided to give RED colour a try!
I've never used Red for my eye shadow colour before as it is quite strong and might also make my eyes even more puffy-looking.

Somehow the look turned out well and I have captured all the steps (as detailed as possible) and post it up as a pictorial guide for this look. Check it out here!

Below are some shots taken for this look:
