A story about arranged marriages, finding love, and a disability…

16th February 2014

Dear Chibi,

Two days ago, my dear friend Mal posted up an article to share her story, her experience and challenges in finding love. Please take a moment to read about it here. It makes me so sad to hear what she has been through, and I hope more people get to know her story. I’ve known her through most of my high school life, and she was my closest friend. A truly beautiful person who deserves all the happiness in the world. I love you Mal, please don’t ever give up on finding love.

Bridal Exhibition.. and wedding planning

18th June 2013

Dear Chibi,

I was browsing through my old draft posts I had written in the past but never got around to finishing or publishing them. One that caught my attention was one I had written over 2 years ago:

Dear Chibi,

Today Kaz, Kat and I went to check out the Bridal Exhibition held at the Sydney Entertainment Center. The place was super packed with excited brides-to-be and seeing all the lovely things on display made us want to get married :3 Well.. that’s what we thought during the first 5 minutes upon entering the building. It was all nice and well, until we realised the exit was nowhere in sight and the overwhelming amount of booths and companies trying to grab you as their next customer became a little scary. Everyone wants that special perfect wedding, and with so many choices, planning for a wedding feels so stressful!

Finally when we reached the end, we sat down to watch the Bridal Fashion Parade :D Now THIS is what we were looking forward to *_*

:) This entry made me smile. It somehow feels relevant because now I’m one of the excited brides-to-be. Since getting engaged 2 months ago, Jacky and I have already started planning for our big day, and so far the progress has been great! We’re really planning early and ahead so hopefully it will remain relatively stress-free for the rest of the journey. We’ve already locked in a date, and booked the ceremony and reception venue. heheee! Told you we’re organised :D The wedding is planned for November 2014, so there’s still a long way to go. It doesn’t stop me from daydreaming about it everyday though, hehehe :)

Old Sketch Book

I bought a Eve Angel sketch book back in 1999 when I was in Year 7, when cute things like Korean stickers and diaries were getting popular. Back in those days we seem to just buy things even though there’s no particular use for them (i.e we’d collect stickers and swap diary refills etc but never use any of them anyway) Well, at least the book had a purpose =) Some of my early Sailor Moon drawings have still been kept because of it, and so I’m glad I did use it. All the above drawings were copied off existing Sailor Moon pictures, as I was still learning to draw and copying was the easiest method. I also realised that I had drawn a lot of Chibiusa/Sailor Chibimoon drawings o_o- and now I don’t really draw any. Was she my favourite character back then or something? XD

haha, anyways- it was fun looking back at them. I wish I had kept even earlier pictures… even if they probably looked really bad.
