she roars with delight

What’s new? Not only I am vertically and horizontally challenged I am a handicapped – technologically that is. I’m quite embarrassed about it but it makes me appreciate my friends all the more! Walter helped me with my tag box today after failing to get one on my own although I tried and gave up time and time again.

Over the weekend, I went for a BBQ at a friend’s and I brought with me Portuguese egg tarts – one of the very few things I can make without burning down my kitchen that also has approximately a 50% success rate which in my books are considerably quite high although really, it’s nothing compared to those who were born with a gift for cooking!

I was born with a gift to love food instead! For some it is not a bad thing but personally for me it creates a roller-coaster weight saga. Not funny I tell you. On a brighter note, I guess to a certain extend I have to be thankful for being strong, healthy and fat fit.

It’s one of my favourite times of the year because all my favourite fruits are in season! I hit the jackpot when I came home last Sunday not with a million dollars but way better! 5kg box of fresh sweet cherries I kid you not! The best part was getting them at the best price by far!

They were not meant for me but due to unforeseen circumstances, they are now all for me to keep. Perhaps it is a sign! May very well be my calling to be a fruit seller? I have been eating my heart out so if you see someone on the street that looks like a cherry please do say HI! That would be me! Plump, firm and sweet! *ha ha*

If you receive cherries from me you know why! It is obvious I heart you! *winks*

I was in the city today to meet up with an old friend who is in Perth for a visit and I heard beautiful music playing along one of the main streets.

Guess what I found?! An ensemble consisting of five very talented young children were playing their tiny violins. I felt so ashamed of myself watching them play so wonderfully. Again, some people are just born talented. Sigh.


Amidst all the silence of late, much has happened. I must speak with all the humility that is appropriate to my limited vision, but I must speak.

The process of waiting has never been easy for me personally but it is indeed true that faith does not grow in the house of certainty.

I came across a particular quote by Albert Einstein as I was reading Andrew Ho’s blog ( and I simply just love it! It reads “there are only two ways to live your life; one is as if nothing is a miracle, and the other is as though everything is a miracle".

Results were released slightly earlier than I expected. Theo was pestering me to check my results when signed in to MSN after coming home from work hungry and tired on one ordinary night sometime this week. I thought he was just pulling my leg but NO! He was right.

It only sunk in that very moment- I guess I am done with uni for the time being.

The time has come to move on to another chapter of my life- one of which will hopefully be an exciting journey of discovery, learning and maturity. One of which I hope will not cause me to end up looking like “crap” as described by a friend referring to my area of interest in Audit.

Unlike Christina Garcia - believe it or not she is a CEO of an entertainment mobile platform. Hot CEO! cool job!

The most overwhelming highlight of my week was that I didn’t just get my miracle but I would like to think I got miracles and for that I give God all the glory for it is not by my own strength but His.

My result was one miracle to be so grateful for. It looks like I will be part of my graduation ceremony in February 2009. I need a miracle not to end up at my ceremony looking like this.

Alie and I randomly decided to dine out in celebration of my results. Notice the size of the wooden spoon! It's a one person serving size!

We were so undecided that night on a good place but finally, we ended up at Wagamama!

While waiting to be seated I was amused by this sign and enjoyed poking fun at it by actually putting it into action......

Yaki Udon (YUCKY udon) was actually very appetizing!

The other miracle was receiving job interview offers scheduled for next month. Should start preparing!

Praying all will be well! Hopefully it won't be anything like this.

Do you what this means? Shopping! For my first work suit! *grins* but it also means causing damage to the savings account.

Dear Lord,
Thank you SO much for my miracles! I know it is You!
