do you believe in…

palmistry? on the way home from Fabrika on saturday night, a friend was telling me about the fortune tellers & palm readers he’d been to. (i don’t even know how that topic came about at 2 in the morning.) so, i started studying my palm and that’s when i realised something quite disturbing…

cause for worry, or not? :/

temptation is a bitch.

saw this pop up on my fb feed two days ago, just thought i should share this cos such situations are really all around. sad, but true.

to be fair, guys aren’t always the guilty party, they can end up being the victim too, especially those in NS. cos army life is so restricted, and guys are forced to spend so much time away from their family and loved ones, girls get “bored” cos guys don’t have enough time for them and fall for someone else who is, at that point, more “available” (sound familiar?)

when will this vicious cycle stop? when will we stop wanting better than what we already have? when will we stop doing things we might live to regret?

mommy beginnings?

ever since we had that hotel party, the bunch of them have been calling me mommy cos apparently the photos of me in the kitchen look motherly. seriously? (i’ll upload those in another post so you all can tell me if it’s true..) but i guess it’s not a bad thing to want to cook for people you love and actually enjoy it. some people see cooking meals as a chore and thats not nice!

today’s lunch : potato salad with bacon, eggs & parmesan croutons

food always tastes better when it’s cooked with ♥. it doesn’t have to be 5-star restaurant standard, but there’s always this warmth that comes with home cooked meals… jones said i’ll make a good mommy! i sure hope so, that’s if i  ever become one. :/

after lunch : strawberries & kiwi in lemon honey

i’ve become more experimental of late.. and i’ve been grocery shopping a lot more than usual, but grocery shopping can get a little mundane if you do it alone. it’s fun when you have someone to pick up groceries and plan menus with.. the icing on the cake would be being able to cook meals together! i remember back in poly i used to cook with my ex’s mom sometimes.. but he wasn’t a big fan of being in the kitchen from what i remember and we didn’t really last very long anyways.. boo.

i think being in the kitchen together can be so much fun.. think, flour fights! (okay i’m kidding) but, looks like that’s one more pre-requisite i’m adding to the list of qualities that make up the ideal guy for me! which shouldn’t be too hard to fulfill.. after all the males are dominating the kitchen these days.

..i secretly think guys who can cook are hot. okay, i guess that’s not very much of a secret anymore. but hey, if a guy wants to split the “obligations”, i know i’ll be more than willing to share the kitchen space. it helps a lot too, we’ll never go hungry!

breakfast in bed? :)

it’s a digital world, baby.

just a little but significant observation i made last night on the way home… the response got me thinking hard.

texting becomes “free”, the more you use bbm and whatsapp to communicate, the more worthwhile your mobile plan pans out to be. it’s like being on msn perpetually, you don’t even have to sign in and out, it’s too easy.

so i read jeremy’s comments, and the sheer thought of what he said started to manifest into a fear. seriously, we’re texting all the time, over time we grow more attached to the people we text as compared to the ones next to us. *guilty. i have a tendency to leave my phone on the table, text during meals cos my friends are always having a convo. but we get so caught up, we hardly think about the effects it has on our relationships… sigh.

i mean, i’ve seen tons of couples on public transportation, each playing games on their phones, does quality time not matter to anyone anymore? are our phones better sources of company that override heart to heart talks with our partners about how the day went by? is topping our top score and unlocking a new virtual badge all we care about?

have we really fallen victim to technology? would we really be nothing without it? not just instant messaging, with things like twitter, foursquare, location tagging features, are we letting technological advancements control and ruin our relationships?

….a penny for your thoughts everyone

from strangers to lovers, to strangers, again.

i was just feed-surfing on facebook last night and saw this video that my friend jason posted… it really summarizes relationships, in 16 minutes. true enough, almost every relationship goes through these stages, except for those that end in marriage.. even then, there is still that possibility of falling into the end stage.

the meeting, the chase, the honeymoon period, getting comfortable with each other which could be good or bad, tolerating each other, going down hill, and breaking up.

in any relationship, ultimately, there are only two possible “endings”. you either break up, or you get married. it’s one or the other…  c’est la vie.
