|I love pink....Pink has different meanings to me- it can be girlish, sweet, full of hopes and happy moments.|
|Not forgetting shiny, satin pink ribbons|
|Pink gerberas are definitely pleasant to the eyes|
|Life is like autumn.. the leaves are first green, after that they become red, turned into yellow and then brown. Next, they become dry and the leaves fall from the trees...|
|As the little bird rummaging its two little feets in the snow flakes of winter|
|We dream of the beautiful white and yellow daisies in the spring- we hope for good days to come and blissful and sunny days to celebrate|
Life is hope, obviously. I say that life is hope as I got to know that a friend has contracted breast cancer- today. A few years ago, I had a cousin who passed away due to cancer. She left six children, all deprived of her love. Last year, I had visited a college friend who was dying from cancer- at the age of 34. Then, my friend, Elly, brought me to visit her cousin who was suffering from cancer too. Recently, Elly's cousin whom I had visited passed away. I was sorry to hear that. Do you know that October is actually the Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Not many are aware of the significance of this month. We are so caught up with our own moments, we think that we have face many difficulties in life, that we forget some people are suffering from this illness. I have called up my friend and told her that I always think of her, and hoping for the bests. Life is hope, we do not just give up easily...We must achieve what ever that life is offering. Everybody has their own ups and downs, my test may come in another form. In the mean time, let's think that life is hope cornering in every tests that we may face... All hopes for my friend and Doa ( prayers) for her speed recovery....
These happy quotations may set us on a positive path in life ;
True happiness is not attained through selfgratification, but through fidelity to a worthy purpose.
The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.
The best way to pay for a lovely moment is to enjoy it.
The supreme happiness of live is the conviction that we are loved.
We must laugh before we are happy, for fear of dying without having laughed at all.
Jean de La Bruyere
Nobody really cares if you’re miserable, so you might as well be happy.

|I've been dreaming of doing something sweet with fresh strawberries- but somehow, rather- ended up buying a pack of strawberries and found them rotten in the fridge after two weeks...|
|Missing the moments when I could do nice frosting with cupcakes... Now, time is spent doing house chores.|
|I really need fresh vegetables in my diet- my immune system is very low due to stress and work commitments|
|I dream of something like this in the future- a bake shop full of baking delights and sweets- This is my cousin's small quaint gift shop in Putrajaya. You should see the decor inside- will rave about it in my next post.|
|Missing macarons or French macaroons- these little sweet pleasures as found in Whisk, Empire Gallery, Subang Jaya.. Since the catastrophe/explosion in Empire Gallery, Subang Jaya, on 28 September 2011- I couldn't go to Whisk to unstress my ever wandering tired mind .I am too lazy to attempt doing macaroons, as I know there is always Whisk to cater to my sugar rush for macaroons. Now, I have to do macaroonage any way, any how...|
