[My Thoughts] Law of Attraction video by Wing - DivaMakeupQueen

My 2nd attempt at posting this coz I had executed my deep fears of not saving the post and losing it... it is exactly how the L.O.A. works and dammned me that I just commented on Wing's video about the ways this Universe kept reminding me of the L.O.A versus what I want.

Since I haven't wrote such a long comment in awhile, let me shares it with you here, as it also shed some light on what's happened in my life recently.

"Wing, I have something to share! I love reading and buying books (fictional/non-fictional etc) to a point that I did run out of space but still reluctant to rid my books since I've acquired them from childhood days. As I am working and willing to set money aside for books & stuff, I will pop by our famous book store Kinokunya to simply check out the books, mangas and magazines. I enjoy browsing the new releases and recommendations sections for books written in English and Chinese. Some years back, I chanced upon this Chinese book titled 吸引力法則 with the original title Law of Attraction also printed, I bought it right away. I honestly haven't finished it but I did realised some stuff. Firstly, the book mentioned that the more you manifest/keep thinking about something or fearing something, what you kept focusing on (regardless of it being a good thing or a bad thing), it WILL HAPPEN. That pointer, hit me so hard as many past experiences on things that i dreaded and kept thinking of "I don't want it to happen" had happened. Similarly, things that I genuinely want/wished for, came to me e.g. lucky draw for tickets to idols' concert years before I read the book, till most recently, earlier this year, when I was in dire need for a job, and sensing the r/s wasn't heading anywhere that I wanted, I was telling myself and even wished to the deity worshipped at home + "老天爷" which may be similar to the "universe", that I really really need a job to come by, and a man who simply loves me, makes me happy, shower me with attention I needed, give me a sense of security and who also had marriage in mind and plans on executing it within the next 2-3 years. I really wished for the job and the someone with a determination that no matter how, with or without help, I will go get it. Guess what? Things just suddenly fall into places almost less than 48hours or so, now that I think back on it. The way it happened, it was really phenomenal. As much as i have experienced it since years ago, sometimes I think that the universe has its way of reminding me to keep staying positive, not just simply because it keeps good things coming, but because it is what I have decided to be since one fateful day in my secondary school life, that I want happiness in my life and I will always find it in all simplicity. I'd like to think that although reality is harsh, as long as you have faith, you chose and want to be happy, it is definitely achievable as it/universe/Allah/God/Deities whoever it is, will help you.

I am so glad that you've found out about the law of attraction and you are so generous at sharing your experience with us! heh heh... sorry for this unusually long comment, but this is really one topic that interests me and resound in me. I'm definitely looking forward to watching a series on the law of attraction!"

Watch the video to find out which
book was recommended and it is what I'll be reading pretty soon!

Life's ups and downs

Life has been interesting lately.
Relationship that ended and blossomed.

Priorities changed as we aged.

Experiences that grows you, made you truly realised the meaning of "you lose something, you gain something".

Balance, is indeed in existence.

I have 1 new discovered quote:

"Staying in love is a choice!"


What have you been up to lately?

Chinese Zodiac Reflects Ancestry's Conviction on Desired Virtues

Received from my dearest ex-boss and friend Peggy Tan: what each animal in the Chinese Zodiac symbolises and represents. Why and how they are arranged in the Zodiac. Recall the legends of the 12 Zodiac (12生肖的传说/故事), it's show how reflecting what ancesters wished upon their decendents. The desired virtues to possess. I think that this, storks be shared.


老外嘲笑十二生肖,國人反問讓人深思!

有一次,一群中國人參加接待了一個由歐洲貴族組成的參訪團的活動。
他們中的大多數跟王族有親戚關係,非常有學問和修養,待人彬彬有禮,但他們的修養背後隱藏著一種傲慢。最後一天聚餐,可能酒喝多了,這些貴族的言談舉止變得比較率性。
席間,一位德國貴族站了起來說:你們中國人,怎麼屬什麼豬啊,狗啊,老鼠啊!不像我們,都是金牛座,獅子座,仙女座……真不知你們祖先怎麼想的!
眾人聽了哈哈大笑,還互相碰杯,先前的優雅完全不見了。

按理說,人家在罵你的祖宗了,你即使想不出話反擊,起碼可以掀桌子啊!但是,所有在場的中國人都不吭聲,也可能是沒有反應過來。
這時有一個中國人站了起來,用平和的語氣說:「是的,中國人的祖先很實在。我們十二生肖兩兩相對,六道輪回,體現了我們祖先對我們的期望和要求。」
這時,現場氣氛慢慢安靜了下來,不過,貴族們的臉上還是一幅滿不在乎的神情。
中國人說:第一組是老鼠和牛。老鼠代表智慧,牛代表勤奮。智慧和勤奮一定要緊緊結合在一起。如果光有智慧,不勤奮,那就變成小聰明;而光是勤奮,不動腦筋,那就變成愚蠢。這兩者一定要結合。這是祖先對我們第一組的期望和要求,也是最重要的一組。
第二組是老虎和兔子。老虎代表勇猛,兔子代表謹慎。勇猛和謹慎一定要緊緊結合在一起才能作到膽大心細。如果勇猛離開了謹慎,就變成了魯莽,而沒了勇猛,就變成了膽怯。這一組也非常重要,所以,中國人看著這些貴族,補上一句:當我們表現出謹慎的時候,千萬不要以為中國人沒有勇敢的一面。
看著大家陷入沉思,中國人繼續說:第三組是龍和蛇,龍代表猛,蛇代表柔韌。所謂剛者易折,太剛了容易折斷,但是,如果只有柔的一面就易失去主見,所以,剛柔並濟是我們的祖訓。
接下來是馬和羊,馬代表勇往直前,羊代表和順。如果一個人只顧自己直奔目標,不顧及周圍環境,必然會和周圍不斷磕碰,最後不見得能達到目標。但是,一個人光顧及和順,他可能連方向都沒有了。所以,勇往直前的秉性,一定要和和順緊緊結合在一起,這是祖先對我們的第四組期望。
再接下來是猴子和雞。猴子代表靈活,雞定時打鳴,代表恒定。靈活和恒定一定要緊緊結合在一起。如果你光靈活,沒有恒定,再好的政策也得不到收穫。一方面具有穩定性,保持整體和諧和秩序,另一方面有能在變通中前進,這才是最根本的要旨。
最後是狗和豬。狗代表忠誠,豬代表隨和。如果一個人太忠誠,不懂得隨和,就會排斥他人。反過來,一個人太隨和,沒有忠誠,這個人就失去原則。無論是對一個民族的忠誠,還是對自己理想的忠誠,一定要與隨和緊緊結合在一起,這樣才容易保持內心深處的平衡。
解釋完畢,中國人說:「最後,我很想知道你們的寶瓶座,射手座等星座體現了你們祖先對你們的哪些期望和要求?希望賜教。」
這些貴族們很長時間都沒有說話,全場鴉雀無聲。
慚愧的是,這也是第一次瞭解十二生肖的意義。看完要轉,因為我們是炎黃子孫。

A Gan Signature Milk Tea - Bubble Tea!!!

I knew about the A Gan Bubble Tea for a long time... since it's first outlet near the NEL entrance towards Plaza Singapura but I never thought of giving it a try coz in my heart I thought that it's just another overrated bubble tea..


I couldn't resist the urge 2 weeks back and during the Saturday afternoon while me and sister were shopping in chinatown point daiso, I had a craving for something which I couldn't pin down.


Once we were done paying for our stuff, right outside the Daiso store in Chinatown point we saw A Gan tea (阿甘泡泡茶)&寒天晶球... somehow decided to give it a try.

There after I had been hooked! hahaha.. love the chewy kanten jelly bits as those are very chewy and almost tasteless, which is what I prefer over "bubbles/pearls".

Babies around me~

Initially at the start of the year I was wondering why does it seems that there are a lot of YouTube Gurus getting pregnant... then, I also realised and found out that there were several ladies around me who were pregnant...

Now, I have babies that were just born into this world around me... I like babies since I get to see lots of them when my aunties get pregnant with my little cousins. My mum used to help out with friends and other people's babies as in she used to be a caretaker that helps to care for babies whose parents needa work. I have always loved to help my mum out with the caretaking of babies.. cuddle my baby cousins when I visit them. .

Never had I thought of it that one day in my life... I wanna have one of my own.

I guess it's the body clock ticking... urging or forming desires of settling down, getting married with your loved one and finally having your own miracles -- babies.

Not too sure if it's the flood of babies in my life at this stage or it's me. I did noticed that before the end of my previous relationship, I had already been looking forward to settling down into a new family with a life partner.. after that ended and I got into the current one. .. I know I really want to move on into the other phase of life. Yet.. financially I'm yet ready. . he isn't too... and I decided to pursue my level 7 advanced diploma with CIPD, which is an equivalent of a Master's degree under the UK QCF system. what's worst was the career hiatus that came along after I have gotten halfway through my course. Glad and thankful that I am now sound in a job and classes had been fun and enriching. .
work as crazy as before but rather different than before. I am now tasked with higher responsibilities, I have staff to oversea and execute instructions from me. A totally new area for growth and am so excited and felt very utilised and appreciated. Well, there's always two sides to everything. As fulfilling as it can be, I am busy as heck. Tomorrow is my best friend's Wedding. I am her dinner's host for chinese speeches. . gonna stop here and finally get into translatin my script.

Shall catch up on my BlogSpirit again!

Getting Busy Online~

As always, Time flies and almost unsurprisingly, I am entering a new decade of my Life... the year that I will get a chance to change / update my identity card as current one was issued in the year 1996.... I am among the last batch of citizens who get to receive their ID cards when they hit 12 years old. YES, do you maths and you can find out my age. XD

With this new year, I am looking forward to some sort of stability in my relationship and ultimately, embarking on a journey in my career and interests. 

That was why I  have been rather busy recently dealing with all these:

  • Setting up a Google+ Page & Site that supports my professional development in HR.L&D
  • Updating my blogs on Tech gadgets + Makeup, filming of videos for YouTube channel for gadgets and beauty
  • Scheduling an event and tapping onto Google Forms, to recruit volunteers to assist me in my personal interests (i.e. Makeup!!)
  • Job search and refining CV and LinkedIn profile
  • Subscription to the Adult Education Network under IAL
  • Continuing my further studies - already undergoing my masters degree programme

I am rather pleased with what I have accomplished during the past 3 months and I really hope that 2014 shall be a fruitful year in terms of career, learning, and pursue of interests.

If you are missing me already, come on! Find me on my social media platforms and interact with me there! I am sure it is not that difficult as I have left some footprints here that should lead you on~

Despite the downs that took place in 2013 and the years before, I am very grateful for what I have learned, experience and knowledge gained, the mistakes that were made, the frustrations that I have to go through... all these made me the person that I am. 

As I always reminded myself.. let me repeat it again:

"Happiness is a Choice that can be made"

"知足常樂 笑口常開"

Stay positive and always look out for the something that brightens your day.

I love rainy days for the peaceful ambiance and the cooling weather, yet I always prefer the Shinning Sun that brightens up world infront of me.

Let's work hard and work smart as we paved our life during this limited time. 

Let's enjoy the simple pleasures in life as we tackle our way through the obstacles laid ahead.

May peace and happiness be within reach.

May smiles and laughter accompany us.

I can continue rambling these nonsensical nothings.. but I think my lids are getting heavy..

We shall talk again~

MIA? Life events

This year is coming to an end in less than a month's time.

Several life events unfolded.

Breakup, job switch, Master's degree, new romance, career hiatus, etc...

I have definitely been missing in action for quite a long while, but if you read beyond the words in the earlier paragraph. ... I believe you know why.

At this point, I have a new start and I hope that it will be great. Relationship matters gets an uplift for me after hearing some good insights from a trusted source.

I'm heading out in high spirits today, been missing such light-hearted mood for awhile.. of course I rewarded myself with a nice look:

On a family date and ending with one from my lover.

I hope that everyone else is also enjoying their weekend with their loved ones.

[Article] Why I'm no longer gay but still want to marry a man

Article: Why I'm no longer Gay but still want to marry a man


This article covered not just what the title says but also something which l think is profound - - ♥LOVE♥

This particular paragraph that I have "cut" out simply because it is really inspirational. To a certain degree I really agree on the way he describe love.

mobile_picture

Of course, I know that just by reading the title there might be to quite a handful ppl uttering %$#××_8£$
That is, if you never even bother to read the whole article.

However it is perceived and how one decides to perceive is beyond me. I just wanna share good reads.

BlogSpirit's got an Android App Finally!

Wow~ how can I not be surprised?
Initially I was rather upset that blogspirit has gotten an app for iphone. . That was like earlier this year when I was looking high & low for blogging-on-the-go tools.

Finallt it is making its entrance into Google Play! If only this could come in earliet, I might have thought of paying for the service of more blogging space in Blogspirit.

I love Google products but I never created my blog under Blogspot coz I felt that there's just too many ppl using it. xp

Before I came found BlogSpirit, I was using tripod and dreambook if I'm not wrong. Somehow, Blogspirit sounded better, sounds like the Spirit of Blogging and I moved my previous personal website cum blog over here.

Around the end of last year, my passion for beauty n health stuff went blazing and I enjoyed sharing great finds with people whom I interact online and in real life. Blogging seems to allow me to pen my finds, share with more people and illustrate better with visuals.

At that point, I have 3 blogs. Here, in BlogSpirit, 1 in Pixnet and Wretch. The last 2 were created initially to pen my thoughts in Chinese, my mother tongue language which I want to allow myself the chance and opportunity to always practise n be using. To be able to use this cultural language in expressing myself. Afterall, apart from using it among family and close friends, we don't usually use it for work and other day to day interactions as compared to Chinese who are living in China, Taiwan and perhaps Hongkong.

With considerations that I might not have much energy after work to be actively blogging, I thought that if there were apps that could be used for blogging-on-the-go would be great!

Sadly, I could only find apps in Google Play for WordPress and Blogspot and Pixnet. Hence I subscribed to a serviced blogging space with Pixnet to host all my reviews and pictures mainly health and beauty related at the moment. I need time to catch up with penning down the Food Finds, Travel Fun, Sights and activities which I experienced with my loved ones.

However, Pixnet has got its flaws in its apps. The picture uploading function is defunct. Despite sending many feedback to them, we don't see anything done to rectify. Hence I could only upliad my pictures into my blog via desktop and only to insert pictures into my posts on a desktop. I do appreciate the fact that I can still draft out my posts using the mobile app.. but it would be much better if photo uploading function works.

Reading so much of my blabber, have you managed to guess what I wanna share in this post? xp

Well, comparing to the Pixnet app, BlogSpirit app also has a picture posting option and sure as heck I'm gonna try that out!

If we get to see any picture within this post it means that it is working!
mobile_picture

Anyway, one more thing to share is that both Pixnet and BlogSpirit allows email-to-post function. This function allows the pictures emailed to the blog-posting url to be uploaded and inserted into the post. The only downside (seems to habe alot of down side with every feature...) is that you can't adjust or control the size of the photos in your blog post though.. well... better than nothing I guess..

okok, that's all my ramblings for today. Im happy that with my badly blocked nose I am still able to "ramble" with out using my mouth, which is currently serving as my "nose" for breathing, I am very grateful already.

yea yea~ time to blow my nose n attempt a normal breathing now. Talk again soon!!


PS: I'm giving BlogSpirit a HUGE THUMBS-UP!! I am able to upload and insert a photo into the post via the app!! I'm even able to define the size of the photo with choice of Small / Original / Customise! !!

Wedding Bouquet - it lands on you...

When I came across this article:

 

http://raindog.pixnet.net/blog/post/30109156-%E6%8D%A7%E8...



It brought back a memory of a recent event which I attended with my guy >> his friends' wedding.

 

Honestly, somehow at this point in life I know I'm not ready not even wanting to think about another phase of life. Yes, every girl does somehow day dream about such things somehow.. For my case, I'm kinda not that "brave" yet..



Then, during the event, the bouquet of the bride simply came tumbling into our laps! Me n my guy, where we were idyllicly sitting around not keen to participate in the "catch the bouquet".

 

At that instant I had very mixed feelings gushing around, happy, puzzled, horrified (shan't explain why XP), stunned, and.. In bliss.

 

That moment sort of makes me realised side of the feelings I had, some of the random thoughts I had, some of the foretold fortune I heard and definitely, have me confidence to whatever that might come along the way.



I know, I knew it all along... =)

 

Puzzled yet Happy,

FS.Rain
