That I don’t have to go to shigoto tomorrow.
A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?”
“Because I’m a woman,” she told him.
“I don’t understand,” he said.
His Mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will.”
Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?”
“All women cry for no reason,” was all his dad could say.
The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry.
Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked, “God, why do women cry so easily?”
God said, “When I made the woman she had to be special.
I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort.
I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children.
I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining.
I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly.
I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart.
I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly.
And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is her’s exclusively to use whenever it is needed.”
“You see my son,” said God, “the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart - the place where love resides.”
This makes me hyperventilate when I see it displayed in the window.
This photo doesn’t even do it any justice! It’s SO dazzling in reality!
Even if I could afford it, I don’t think I’d wear it…
Might stab myself with those spikes.
I had to have something THIS sparkly.
Wouldn’t be wearing this for convocation though. I think it’s a bit much for a graduation ceremony.
Not that it would arrive in time anyway.
I think I just made my shoe collection that much more sparkly… that’s all.
Hello, you! Sparkly gorgeous object of desire! =D
… that if, up till this very moment, I haven’t learnt how to 看开, then 我不是白活了吗 ?
… when they raise their voice a little, sound a little aggravated or just plain annoyed, remember they’re upset. Remember at least they’re coming to you - that you’re the first person they turn to when they need to smile. Take a deep breath, then let it out. Don’t raise your voice back, but allow them space to come to you when the times right. Love is patient, love is kind; always leave arms open wide.
So I went to Steve Madden and silently told myself repeatedly that I HAD to walk out of the shop with a pair of sparkly shoes that would make me sparkle even more on my graduation day.
I walked out empty-handed AGAIN.
Ok, so this pair of pumps costs $240. It’s not that expensive, but it’s not cheap enough for me to buy it without thinking… and thinking… and thinking more.
It’s not exactly the most comfortable pair of shoes, and I don’t think I’ll be wearing it that often. I’d probably just wear it to weddings or special occasions. I could definitely not wear it and walk around shopping for eight hours and live to tell the tale. If I were to divide the cost by the number of times I’ll wear it, the cost-per-wear is still not as low as I’d like it to be.
I have this knack for keeping my shoes under $50, and those shoes must also be comfortable enough for me to walk in them for eight hours straight. So far I’ve done well… kept to my budget and worn all my shoes to death, therefore making their cost-per-wear super low. I’m a girl and there are too many shoes for me to wear in my life time, so there’s no point splurging too much if I’m just gonna move on with life eventually.
But yea. This pair of $240 shoes is just… I don’t know what to do! Common sense would tell me not to buy it, obviously, and just save $240 for a short trip somewhere. But I like it!!! That’s all. Haha.
So much fun to be a girl. Worrying over such trivial things. I’m amazed at myself. haha.
And I also walked past Christian Louboutin and nearly started hyperventilating -_-” I must never walk by the shop again!!! Until I can comfortably afford a few pairs of them Louboutins! Ahhhh!!! >_<
Blahniks didn’t have that crazy effect on me. Walked past the shop at MBS a few times when it was still open… didn’t go apeshit at all. haha. Maybe not yet.
And meanwhile, yes or no to Steve Madden sequin pumps???

omg I feel like someone hit me hard on my head with the sparkly stick of all things glittery, sparkly and awesome.
And I’m not gonna be at their cheesy boyband concert!
Ok, when I was 11, there was this epic “war” going on in my class about Westlife vs A1… I was on A1’s side, if it’s not already dead obvious by now, but I did think that Westlife had some nice songs…
Well, either way, Westlife = nostalgia. Just like A1. haha. except that Westlife’s missing Bryan McFadden now… and he was kinda my favourite member!
A1’s now missing Paul Marazzi………… not that I care. haha. I thought Ben Adams was the cutest guy I’d ever laid my eyes on (back then, but not right now!) and he’s still kinda the cutest in the group so… YAY.
I was just chatting with my friend Weevil (she prefers not to use her real name) and we were talking about weddings and birthdays…
And then I told her my “master plan” to be a beach bum for three days next year at the end of January so that I can skip Chinese New Year entirely and come back acting like nothing happened.
So she mentioned something about my birthday, and something about spending it overseas… and then I went on telling her that I’d be turning 24 next year and it’s not such a significant number… it’s just a number that’s bigger than my waist…
And then I realised that my current age is already bigger than my waist…. -_-“
Not that I have a problem with my age. I don’t really even care. I used to think that anything after 21 didn’t matter and ain’t worth celebrating.
I still feel that way. Haha!
Yea, I told you it was a pointless realisation. So if you read up till here, it’s not my freakin’ fault that five minutes of your life just flashed past rather unmeaningfully. I made it clear in the title!!!
