Snowstorm happened today. It started at around 10 am and it hadn't stopped yet when I went to take a nap at around 5.30 pm. I hadn't been feeling too well lately (seems like flu wants to strike me, but it hasn't fully developed yet), so today I asked R2 to coin my back and then I went to sleep after taking a Panadol to get rid of my annoying headache (headache started to bother me half of my working day).

When I rode my bike home, it was almost impossible to see the road 'coz the flurry of snow kept on blocking my sight, but I am HAPPY that now everything's SO white again. It feels like December and I just want to sing Christmas songs HA HA HA HA HA HA...

Here let me give you a comparison of photos:

First pic was taken on Monday (the first snow day this year), which came a few weeks earlier than last year. It snowed lightly during the night, but during the day the temp. went up, so it melted fast.

Second pic: I took it today after I got back home from work at around 4 pm.

See the tracks? Yep...I had to ride my bike really slowly so that the tyres wouldn't slip. I was still wearing my summer sports shoes to work today (I wore double socks, though). I guess tomorrow I have to wear my winter shoes he he...

Have I ever told you a dream I had a LONG LONG time ago? I still remember it like it was yesterday. Whenever it snows outside and I'm looking out at the scenery from a big window, I always remember this dream.

I don't remember anymore when I had this dream, but it must've been before I saw snow in real life. I was standing in front of a HUGE HUGE window (bare window without any curtains or blinds), staring at a scenery outside: snow is falling lightly to the ground and there are people outside in a small village walking about in the evening...street lights are already on and I feel so serene...

I hoped that someday I could see snow like that...I mean when the snow is falling every so lightly, it feels all hushed up and serenity engulfs me...that kind of scenery...and that has happened to me already. My dream has COME TRUE!!!!!!!!!!! :-D :-D :-D

In this post I'd also like to say my DEEPEST condolences for the loss of my friend's beloved dog (she had to be let go), Fluffy.

You're allright now, more pain!!! You'll be missed dearly, though!!!!!!!


  1. Hi Amel,

    First let me express my condolences to your friends pet. I know what it is to lose such an invaluable friend like that.

    Now for the snow, wow, I love it. We are only in Autumn here in Canada so we have some time yet before we see winters magic pay us a visit. Be careful on your bike and I hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. Thank you Amel (and Bogey in Canada) for your thoughts.

    Fluffy was laid to rest at the Sodankylä pet cemetery this evening, Finnish time 6pm (GMT+2).

    It is a beautiful picture that you have posted of her, one of our favourites. Thank you, it brought a smile to my face.

    She was a very brave girl... and we miss her terribly - Jake especially as she has been his best friend since he was 5 or 6 years old. Eleven years with her feels way too short. :(

    When I can get my head straighter, I shall write a blog for her.

    Love Michelle

  3. Hi Amel,

    Watching snow falling has a calming effect on a person. Don't your agree!? Makes me remember that Christmas is so near!

  4. Wow...lots of snow already :D

  5. RIP Fluffy. Sorry to hear that. But as you say, no more pain.

    I love the snow!!Happy snowy weekend. Wishing you good health too.

  6. Yes, sorry to hear about Fluffy.

    It's snowing already? Wow, it's terribly hot here and seeing the snow covered scenes makes me envious!!

  7. well, you're doing better than I. If I saw that much snow, I think I would really be down, he-he.
    & sorry Mrs. Arctic Rainbow.

    There's another game for Ted, Amel on Sunday. Your blog looks great.

  8. snow..oh snow.. should we miss it? :(

  9. So sorry to hear about Fluffy... :( I remember you posted about her and the other beautiful pets of your friend.

    Your dream has come true, when will be mine?? Heehee... take good care, buddy!!
