    Right after exams

    Yesterday I was finally freed from exams for this semester at least! It was a long awaited day because andy and qb had finished their last papers almost 1 week before van and I. Envious~

    But no more. We are having our holidays too!

    Back to topic. Andy, together with loong ee and qb picked van and I up from school. We went to a Korean restaurant at beside Jurong Bird Park recommended by andy for a really early dinner. It's not bad. An interesting experience having authenic Korean food for the 1st time. However, i think the cost is considered pricey for me. I spent about 24 bucks in total. Utterly broke. Well, i exaggerated a little. Haha.

    Considering it was still early after dinner, long ee suggested dessert and a drive to "investigate" Changi Hospital from afar. So after much pondering where to get our dessert, we settled on Anderson ice cream at Parkway Parade. Then off we drove to old Changi Hospital.

    During the car ride, spooky stories regarding the old Changi Hospital were exchanged among them. It did fuel the fear in the girls and especially when the sky had darkened.

    The chalets near the abandon hospital are very dark and quiet. No wonder there are so many ghostly stories told about that place. Soon, we got off the car and walked to the area leading to the old hospital and the girls stopped. It was on a hill and very creepy! Looking up in the direction where the building stood, there was only absolute darkness. Just like those scenes i saw in horror movies but only that it was real.

    Andy and qb tried to pyscho us to take a walk further down towards the stairs and we strongly resisted! Yes, we were afraid because such things are not meant to be messed around. What if we unintentionally provoke any spirits wondering in the building? Then we would be in deep trouble.

    Last hanging out venue of the day - Changi Airport. This was the time we camwhore alot! LOL.
    PS: Thanks andy for driving us around! I think we must have used up quite alot of your car fuel. Paiseh arh =X

    The girls! loong ee, van and me

    Funny faces~


    Love this pic! I really think that loong ee takes good pictures! =)

    Something meaningful to share


    During one of our seminars, a woman asked a common question.
    She said,"How do I know if I married the right person?"

    I noticed that there was a large man sitting next to her so I said, "It depends. Is that your husband?"In all seriousness, she answered "How do you know?"

    Let me answer this question because the chances are good that it's weighing on your mind. Here's the answer.

    EVERY relationship has a cycle. In the beginning, you fell in love with your spouse. You anticipated their call, wanted their touch, and likedtheir idiosyncrasies.

    Falling in love with your spouse wasn't hard. In fact, it was a completely natural and spontaneous experience. You didn't have to DO anything. That's why it's called "falling" inlove... Because it's happening TO YOU.

    People in love sometimes say, "I was swept of my feet." Think about the imagery of that expression. It implies that you were just standing there; doing nothing, and then something came along and happened TO YOU.

    Falling is love is easy. It's a passive and spontaneous experience. But after a few years of marriage, the euphoria of love fades. It's thenatural cycle of EVERY relationship. Slowly but surely, phone calls become a bother (if they come at all), touch is not always welcome (whenit happens), and your spouse's idiosyncrasies, instead of being cute,drive you nuts.

    The symptoms of this stage vary with every relationship, but if you think about your marriage, you will notice a dramatic difference between the initial stage when you were in love and a much duller or even angry subsequent stage.

    At this point, you and/or your spouse might start asking, "Did I marry the right person?" And as you and your spouse reflect on the euphoria of the love you once had, you may begin to desire that experience withsomeone else. This is when marriages breakdown. People blame their spouse for their unhappiness and look outside their marriage forfulfillment.

    Extramarital fulfillment comes in all shapes and sizes. Infidelity isthe most obvious. But sometimes people turn to work, church, a hobby, a friendship, excessive TV, or abusive substances. But the answer to this dilemma does NOT lie outside your marriage. It lies within it. I'm notsaying that you couldn't fall in love with someone else. You could.

    And TEMPORARILY you'd feel better. But you'd be in the same situation a few years later. Because (listen carefully to this):


    SUSTAINING love is not a passive or spontaneous experience. It'll NEVER just happen to you. You can't "find" LASTING love. You have to "make" it day in and day out. That's why we have the expression "the labor of love." Because it takes time, effort, and energy. And most importantly, it takes WISDOM.
    You have to know WHAT TO DO to make your marriage work.

    Make no mistake about it. Love is NOT a mystery. There are specific things you can do (with or without your spouse) to succeed with your marriage.

    Just as there are physical laws of the universe (such as gravity), there are also laws for relationships. Just as the right diet and exercise program makes you physically stronger, certain habits in your relationship WILL make your marriage stronger. It's a direct cause andeffect. If you know and apply the laws, the results are predictable...you can "make" love.

    Love in marriage is indeed a "decision"... Not just a feeling.
