Weekday Fun #1 : Guess the Lego

I cannot imagine my childhood Legos. I liked it as much as I did my Barbie dolls.

If you're from the same generation or at enjoy a little pop culture trivia, then I'm sure you'll enjoy this simple guessing game. So far, I've only guessed 6 of 7.

A Lot of Single Gals Feel This Way

I apologize for being out for over a week - I've been Über busy the past couple of days and haven't had the time to write down my thoughts so this one's going to be quite short.

If you're single and reading this, you've probably had a general feeling of waiting to the point of being idle. You may have said to yourself, "I won't eat in another date place til I go on a date with a guy I like" or "I won't watch movies until I watch it with my boyfriend". For me, it used to be the latter, 'til I realized I was being silly. I felt like I my life wasn't complete until I meet him. Oh, how wrong I was.

It's sad to think that we haven't lived if we haven't met the one, if our lives are not whole because we haven't found our missing piece. You may think it's crazy but a lot of single girls do feel this way, they just don't admit it. There's nothing much wrong with it at first (because we all go through it), unless you start living less than your destiny. The worst part is, some girls only realize it when it's too late and they end up regretting. Each day is a gift, to both singles and couples. Live each day because it is a gift.

In a nutshell, live your life now. Live your destiny. You are complete, you just don't know it yet. Live it in graceful anticipation embark on adventures whether it's trying out a new restaurant or watching a horror flick. Do them while you're still single because they would make awesome memories.

T.G.I.F. : Thank God it's Funny (Friday)

I've been super busy the past couple of days so I wasn't able to write on this blog but I did save some memes that are quite funny.

What are memes you ask?

A meme (mēm) is an internet phenomenon in a form of an image, video or phrase that evolve as they get spread around. Most people use the same photo and just add a different text / phrase, mostly for comedic purposes. 

Here are some:

It's One of Those Days Again

I was hanging out with some friends last night and once again, I was the 5th wheel.

Sometimes, being the 5th wheel sucks. Big time.

Don't get me wrong, I had a great time. But as I finished my glass of wine, I clearly saw that I was utterly single. I pleaded to God to act quickly and introduce me to my husband already. My heart was racing as I panicked while my heart sank with the reality that I (might) have not met him yet.

If you've read my posts from the beginning, you might think that I'm 100% put together when it comes to these things, but I'm only human. Sometimes, I get sad and lonely too.

I did say in my earlier posts that this blog is everything about being single, both highs and lows. As positive as my previous posts on the single season are, just like you, I go through the lows too. One of the reasons why I started this blog was also because during moments like this, I needed reminding myself.

There are mostly good and great days, but there are these days that just makes me wonder, "Will he ever come?", "Will I ever get married?" or "Will God really answer my prayer?"

Truth is, I could never give a definite answer to these questions, only God can. I surrender to this thought each time.

This verse is the secret to waiting gracefully. Sometimes we tend to forget but when I rely on God to give me the strength, He always instantly comes through as if rescuing me from my worries. Waiting gracefully is not about us or our season of waiting, it's about what God can do with our lives as we wait. Reminding myself once again now, I feel a little less lonely and if you're single like me, I hope it helps you too.

T.G.I.F : Thank God it's Funny (Friday)

You might have cursed or heard someone curse an iPhone. Not because it has glitches, but it's those darn autocorrects that are more annoying than helpful (but you don't switch it off since you'll need them for spell checks). This can be especially irritating when you're typing non-English words than turn "yeaaahhh" to "uranium" and "Disney" to "divorce".

This is exactly why I never bought an iPhone.

So since it's funny Friday again, here are a few screen shots of failed texts thanks to iPhone's autocorrect. 



I love lasagna,
I love milk tea,
I love shopping,
and I love to travel.

All these things I say I love so I must really love them.

Come to think of it, we say the word "love" a lot, oftentimes exchanging it with the word "like" or "enjoy".

Love isn't overrated, the word is just misused - a lot of times.

So what does love really mean?

I've probably answered dozens of slam books when I was in grade school and each slam book that I've come across would always have the questions "Define Love". And I remember not knowing what to answer so I would just write whatever the popular answer that time was.

During fifth grade, I asked my Chinese teacher to answer my slam book and when I saw what her answer was under "Define Love", she wrote, "1 Corinthians 13 : 1-13". I had no idea what that meant.

Until recently.

One of the things I've been praying for (second to my husband) is for God to prepare my heart for marriage. Many times we forget that love is of utmost importance for a marriage to succeed (it's not all about compatibility). But since people tend think love is overrated or simply because it's just so hard to do, we give in to our relational issues and create smudges in our relationships that started with a clean slate, a promise to always love each other.

Love isn't just being being a giver, it's giving all you can. Love isn't just about forgiving, it's forgiving and forgetting. You just don't say "I love you", you show it.

Love is demonstrated in the small and big things, for better or for worse, for richer or poorer, until you breathe your last.

So next time you say you love someone, do him/her a favor;
Say it with all your heart and show it with all your might.

Good Read # 3 : The Rules for Ladies

With the last two posts, you might have thought, "if there are tons of advice for men, shouldn't there be more for women?"

And yes, there are.

The Rules for Ladies is the female counterpart of The Rules of a Gentleman, same concept, only, of course, it's written for women. I've chosen these advices on both relationships and self-worth because I feel we tend to forget sometimes. I hope it encourages, enlightens and inspires you as well.
