Math is easy / Design is hard
Mathematics is the study of quantity, structure, space, and change. Mathematicians seek out patterns, formulate new conjectures, and establish truth by rigorous deduction from appropriately chosen axioms and various definitions. / Design : No generally accepted definition of 'design' exists, and the term has different connotations in different fields. Informally, 'a design' (noun) refers to a plan for the construction of an object (as in architectural blueprints, circuit diagrams and sewing patterns) and 'to design' (verb) refers to making this plan. However, one can also design by directly constructing a unique object.

Cooking is easy / Cleaning is hard
Cooking is the process of preparing food by applying heat. Cooks select and combine ingredients using a wide range of tools and methods, is the process, the flavor, texture, appearance and chemical properties of the ingredients can change (unclear). Cooking techniques and ingredients vary widely across the world, reflecting unique environmental, economic, and cultural traditions. / Cleanliness is the absence of dirt, including dust, stains, bad smells and garbage. Purposes of cleanliness include health, beauty, absence of offensive odor, avoidance of shame and to avoid the spreading of dirt and contaminants to oneself and others, in the case of glass objects such as windows or windshields, the purpose can also be transparency.

real love

people say that hate is the opposite of love. other people say that indifference is the opposite of love.
real love is not separate from hate. it's not the opposite either. you'll only know what it means (or what it takes) to love someone when you hate them.

birthdays. always a bittersweet occasion. i only really officially achieved 11 things off my list. i moved in, threw a party, went on a couple of holidays, printed my favourite photos, read 3 classic novels, made a scrapbook, bought ugly betty and put up an inspiration board.
i tried documenting everything but you know, time and busyness catches up with you, which explains why i didn't blog about some of the things i did do.
i tried growing a flower but it died.
i tried to take a photo a day but it was too much work and the photos i did take disappeared with the great hard disk massacre.
i did share the gospel with someone.
i found several good restaurants in damansara, like the one we went to yesterday to celebrate my birthday, thanks to jeremy and melissa.
and i did make my kitchen cosier.
i could feel bad for not being successful in achieving all these things, but what's the use. it wasn't meant to be a do it all kind of list anyway, just some things that i'd like to have done but don't need to have done.

So what's next, twenty four? shall i or shall i not do another list?

Lessons learnt in being a wife

It has been a week in education of young impressionable girls of the idealistic, optimistic and utterly stupid and untrue nature of their hopes and dreams of being a wife.

Being a wife means...
...Never letting go (even when you hate his guts sometimes)
...Staying alive (even though you'd rather die)
...Doing the dishes (even if its disgusting and gross)
...Talking (even in silent treatment mode)
...Calming down (even when you're super angry)
...Seeing the good in all he's doing (which is in reality a lot, although you translate it to be not)
...Keep going on being a wife (even if your whole being insists on giving up)

Now take a whack at it and see if you'll be the so-called wife that you believe God called you to be. My advice is: Stop being the young impressionable girl with idealistic, optimistic and stupid untrue hopes and dreams of being a wife and JUST BE ONE. Find comfort in God when you fail and keep finding comfort in Him cos you're gonna keep failing for the rest of your life.
