3BT: Random Days

1. Spring is definitely in the air (officially) 'coz I can see buds all around me. Buds, buds, buds...lovely buds!!!

2. Yesterday and the day before I didn't have work to do and those were sunny days, so I could sit outside and read a novel in the sun. Felt like I was on a vacation! :-D

3. Thankful that IF has taught me SO MANY facets of extreme human emotions that I couldn't have possibly learnt otherwise.

4. Thankful for having such a thoughtful mother-in-law.

5. Planning on a short trip to southern Finland next week (during my week off) with my MIL 'coz our nephew (or MIL's eldest grandson) is having a high school graduation party there.

6. Reading old emails from hubby, reminding me of how hard it was to have a long-distance relationship and thus I'm THANKFUL to have been able to be by his side for 4+ years and hoping we'll grow old together just the two of us as a complete family.

7. Fresh tap water to quench my thirst.

8. Having close friends to whom I can confide about my deepest, darkest thoughts without fear of being judged. They've been my dearest friends for over HALF of my age. Friends for life, that's who they are.

9. Finding very cheap jeans at €10/pair (original price was €49.95/pair that turned out to be even cheaper when I paid at the cashier 'coz I bought 2 pairs and I just found out that they were having "buy-1-get-1-free" sale) . WHOOOPPEEEE!!!!

P.S. My trusted pair of jeans got ripped off due to having been worn too much so I had to buy a new pair for work.

10. Mosquito nets for the windows.

11. Feeling so much J.O.Y inside for no other specific reasons than just being joyful to be alive and to have been loved and to have been given a chance to love back.

12. The smell and taste of fresh strawberries. In fact, yesterday I ate 250 gr of fresh strawberries all by myself HA HA HA HA HA...


  1. 250gr of strawberries??? Wow!! I can't eat too much strawberries...too sour, I think. haha..

    PTL for joy ... joy .. joy! =) Btw, itu foto yg dari glitter graphics keren bener yack.

    I was just reading old emails from Hans too a few days ago. Such memories. So precious =)

  2. @Shinta: HI HI HI...I can eat half a kilo too in a day if I want to. They're not all sour, some are a bit sweet. :-D But then again I LOVE fruits that are a little sour. For example I don't like oranges that are sweet - if they're sweet and sour, that's THE BEST. :-D

    Yep, I LOVEEEEE glitter graphics 'coz they have so many beautiful creations. :-D

    Reading old emails is really making us sentimental, eh? HE HE HE...Indeed precious precious memories. :-D

  3. too! When it comes to oranges, it HAS TO HAVE a bit of sour in it. slurrrpp

    Yup. too bad now it's in email form, eh. My parents still have their love letters. Tons and tons of them coz they had LDR for about a year. When I was a kid, I used to sneak into their closet to read their letters hahahaha

  4. @Shinta: Apel ama anggur juga sama dink...enakan yang agak asem hi hi...

    Well, even though it's in email form, it's BETTER than nothing. My parents don't have any love letters 'coz they have a short relationship prior to getting married hi hi...6 months of dating then deciding to get married six months from then (so all in all they only dated for a year prior to wedding day).

    HA HA HA HA HA...sneaking into the closet to read their letters? Dasarrr!!! But those are really important legacies. :-D

  5. That's a lot of strawberries!

    Enjoy your trip!

  8. are the mosquitos thick in Finland this month? They're usually worse here when it's August.
    I love spring though, it's nice that we don't have to deal with snow, cold and short days for another 5 months !

  9. What? Strawberries? ...and you didn't ask me to join you.. dammmmmm... :D

    Yummy! Good for you!

    It is always nice to re read old love letters. I still have mine from Mark from way back when..... :D Nice!
