My Color Personality

you are deeppink

Your dominant hues are red and magenta. You love doing your own thing and going on your own adventures, but there are close friends you know you just can't leave behind. You can influence others on days when you're patient, but most times you just want to go out, have fun, and do your own thing.

Your saturation level is high - you get into life and have a strong personality. Everyone you meet will either love you or hate you - either way, your goal is to get them to change the world with you. You are very hard working and don't have much patience for people without your initiative.

Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.

Happy Bulgogi Brothers Birthday to me ...?


Me and my best friend, Val, just ate at Bulgogi Brothers at Alabang Town Center. She sheepishly greeted me a happy birthday in front of our waitress. Lo and behold, I was surprised with an entourage of waiters and waitresses singing me Happy Birthday in Korean! They gave us complementary seaweed soup too. It's free and they only serve it for special birthday celebrants like me! Ehem.


When we asked for the bill, I was surprised to find a little kitty in it--a hello kitty post it note, i mean. It read, "Happy Birthday! An-yong Ha Se Yo, Thank you for dining here at Bulgogi Brothers. My pleasure to serve you again... God Bless... Yaz". 

How sweet and awesome right? :D
Well it wasn't really my birthday. Oops. But it all made me truly smile. More than the food, it was an unforgettable "birthday". Thank you thank you to Val too! ^_^

my little side adventure

After visiting the awe-mazing National Museum of Singapore, we passed through Fort Canning Park. Feeling ever the adventurous, I sneakily left my parents and went down a curiously placed staircase which led to this dark and quiet tunnel where I took the shot above.

Where the Sidewalk Ends

by Shel Silverstein

There is a place where the sidewalk ends
And before the street begins,
And there the grass grows soft and white,
And there the sun burns crimson bright,
And there the moon-bird rests from his flight
To cool in the peppermint wind.

Let us leave this place where the smoke blows black
And the dark street winds and bends.
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers grow
We shall walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And watch where the chalk-white arrows go
To the place where the sidewalk ends.

Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slow,
And we'll go where the chalk-white arrows go,
For the children, they mark, and the children, they know
The place where the sidewalk ends.

Just Isn't Enough

This is a forwarded message from one of my favorite teachers in college, Ms Go. 

When DOING everything, just isn't enough,
And we find we're worn down to a thread,
We need to look and take stock of our lives,
And change our behavior instead.
If we're constantly taking on too many duties,
Others problems, other projects, get involved,
When we haven't the TIME to take care of ourselves,
It's in the world outside us we revolve.
We have to take inventory of just who we are?
Consider the things for which we volunteer?
For if we don't take TIME to take care of OUR lives,
It's our well-being that will soon disappear.
