Broken Hopes and Dreams






I usually do a "Best of (insert year)" every last day of the year. But since I have been doing that for the 2011 and 2012 in a row, I decided to not do it this time. Mostly because 2013 is not really my year. It has been a year where there are a lot of "almost",  not to mention family crisis. You can say, it has been the time of broken hopes and dreams. However, I'm grateful for every moment, both that makes me cry or smile. I feel so blessed for the fact that I still able to live a fulfilled life with such wonderful people around me who would go above and beyond to make sure I'm happy and healthy.

I'm sorry for such a forlorn post. I do look forward for 2014 with the best and most positive mind! 

So let me leave you (as per usual for my end of year post) with a quote for 2014. 

"I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. As we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you're going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you." - C. Joybell C.

Happy New Year!

Mrs. Claus







A very red outfit for my Christmas Eve...
I can actually picture Mrs. Clause wearing this! Don't you?
It's a made by order dress and I'm very happy with the fit. I got the design online and fingers crossed I don't get any copyright infringement trouble!

I hope in the midst of the celebration, gifts, lights, and Santa Claus festivities, we don't forget the REAL reason why we have Christmas in the first place which is the birth of our saviour, Jesus Christ. I am in love with His favor and compassion more and more everyday and my only wish is to hear He says "well done" when I'm finished with this life :)

Wishing everyone an extraordinary merry Christmas!
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Mad for Plaids







I have been seing plaids all over this winter and since I'm all about tea-length these days, I thought I should own a plaid skirt in that kind of length. What a better way to end the week than with a vintage plaid skirt. I got this one for less than US$10 and honestly, I had no idea how lucky I am sometimes! It has the perfect fit and despite being a bit longer than I hope (I might shorten it two or three inches...), this outfit turns out just the way I want to be. Casual and vintage :)

Wishing all of you a wonderful weekend ahead! Christmas is less than a week away. Are you excited?

Holiday Party Ready : Sparkly Top





Often we are discouraged, too, because we have made mistakes. The more we consider them, the larger they grow. A whole day can be wretched. "It's all my faul," we say. "I was so stupid!"
Ralph Waldo Emerson talks about that when he says, "Finish each day and be done with it. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in--forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day: begin it well and serenely, and with too high a spirit to be cumbered with your old nonsense."

Well said, Mr. Emerson, well said. 

I found these days to be draining for my brain and my mental health. It's like constantly thinking "do I have all the items for character A" or something like "set a reminder to remind X to bring geeky glasses" or even "do we have enough time to change during narration?" . All involving the upcoming XG Christmas Celebration! We have devoted our energy and time to create this magical experience for you and for Papa Jesus! Come join us this Friday 5.30 PM at GBI Barangsiang. And on Saturday 5.00 PM at GBI Baranangsiang too.

And this sparkly top is very much possible making an apperance this weekend :)
I'll see you there...
