Marriage is tough..

I was the sort that made plans.. and planned on not failing.

No room for mistakes or curve balls.. Even if there was a curve ball thrown at me, I would make that curve ball fly straight..lol. Everything (or at least 90%) on my checklist must be checked. Very stressful, I know.. but that’s the purpose of a plan, no?

On the other hand, Blueberry is my complete opposite. He lives life with minimal planning and goes with the flow (or curves with the ball).. He calls it expectation management, I call it- a disaster.

Our differences drove us mad. We fought.. We made up. Then we fought some more.

Eventually, we got tired of the fighting.. We decided to compromise; find a common ground where we could both work on.

He agreed on better planning and checklists.. and I agreed to detour and curve with the ball, when the need arises.

Ever since, things have become better.

Falling in love is easy.

Staying in love requires courage, communication, care, compromise.. and the list goes on. Goodness, marriage is tough!

When the efforts result in love and harmony, everything sown in is worth it.

New Year hopes..

In the beginning of the year, Blueberry and I wrote down our hopes on a postcard.

New year , new hopes..

The postcard is now on my dresser.. Seeing it gives me positivity and strength for my day.

How pretty are the contrasting colors..

.. the dark background makes the gold alphabets pop. 🙂

Dear Readers, I wish you a successful year in reaching your hopes/goals. May your days be fill with joy and love, as you make your way in 2016. Peace!

Roses for our Anniversary..

Today is my wedding anniversary! 😀

Blueberry bought me a trio of roses for our special day.

We usually celebrate with red roses.. but this year I wanted something different, so Blueberry bought these delicate white roses.

These gorgeous roses smelled heavenly.. I’m so happy with this gift. 🙂

My wedding anniversary is two days after Doggie’s death anniversary. When Doggie passed last year, I remembered being a total wreck for days.

I wasn’t in the mood for celebration, but Blueberry pampered me with flowers and a nice meal. It helped to leave the house, after staying in bed for an entire day. Thank you, Blueberry. 🙂

Blueberry started a blog on cooking recently.. I’m glad he taken a step to share recipes of the delicious food he has been feeding me. Spoiler alert: Reading his blog will make you hungry.. not advisable for late night web surfing. 😛 *winks*

Life isn’t perfect, but being with Blueberry makes it wonderful.

1, 2, 3.. How much do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

To my Blueberry: 6 years of laughter, delicious food and silly puns.. I love the time we spent together. Thank you for providing for the family and for taking care of me.
Here’s to another year of experiences, surprises and home cooking adventures. I love you lots! ❤

For an (extra)ordinary orange seed..

It was a positive sign!

We were over the moon. 🙂

The symptoms started.. satiety, nausea, bloating, breast tenderness.

Then one night, the bleeding started.

During this week, I experienced a chemical pregnancy. Even though it’s a loss, I don’t want to think of it as a miscarriage (considering the fact the pregnancy is at a very early stage and there were no hospitalization/procedures done). I’m sad and disappointed, but I believe everything happens for a reason.

The road to getting pregnant hasn’t been easy.

End of last year, we wanted to get pregnant. Just as we decided, I started experiencing health issues. The occurrence the symptoms baffled me, because I’ve been healthy most of my life.

From the family doctors to hospitals I went.. Lots of tablets and creams I took.

I remembered telling myself, “I guess this is how people feel when they are told to take long-term medication.” The thought of poping medications everyday was no fun.

Eventually, the health issues resolved over 5 months.. and I got weaned off from the medications. Thank God!

Starting from April, we tried.. and this has been the closest we have gotten to.

Though it was brief, it was nice to experience pregnancy.. I believe this will prepare me to cope better(in the early stages) when the time comes.

Dear Blueberry, thank you for being here during this journey.. I know God will bless us with a bundle of joy when the time comes. I love you banyak banyak.

Hola, Senor Pique!

Blueberry was 14 years old, when he gave his father his first present.

It was World Cup season. The pewter counter in the department store was selling World Cup souvenirs. Blueberry knew his father loved soccer, so he saved up pocket-money to buy something.

When he saved enough, Blueberry bought Senor Pique.

After many years, Senor Pique is still proudly displayed in Momma’s glass cabinet.

It makes me wonder what would my reaction be, when I receive my very first present from my children. Would I keep the present for many years? 🙂

Ps: Thank you, Cee for featuring this post on your website! It made my day. 😀

Blueberry’s alma mater..

Blueberry’s Dad was in the Malaysian Navy. During his service, he was posted to several areas to serve.

One of the places he(and the family) went was Sitiawan. It is a coastal town located in Perak on the west side of Malaysia.

Earlier this year, my father in law, Blueberry and I went on a road trip. Blueberry drove us all to Sitiawan. My father in law had problems with his vision and I haven’t pass my driver’s licence, so we depended on Blueberry to get us there. Thanks B for getting us there safely!

While we were there, Blueberry brought me to visit his secondary school, SMK Methodist ACS Sitiawan.

We were lucky the security guard allowed us to enter the school compound for a quick visit.

It was big place! I was envious he studied in such a big school. Blueberry went on to explain the changes the school underwent, since his school days.

He also showed me the different classrooms he went to.

I wondered how it was like to study here.. If I was a student here, would I have met Blueberry? And if I met Blueberry, would I have a crush on him? 🙂

With time, everyone will grow old; most things will change.

But some things will remain.. The fond memories embedded in our hearts, will be kept safely from change.

Together

Together.

.. is the best place to be. 🙂

No matter where we go, home is closer when we are together.

I love you, Blueberry. Thank you for taking good care of me.. I’m a better person, because of your love. 🙂

Red roses are love..

Roses are red, violets are blue. Sugar is sweet, so are you.

I have a special love for red roses… My heart melts every time I receive them.

These delicate flowers remind me of the love Blueberry and I have for each other.. And all the special moments we celebrated together.

A single stalk, a bouquet of three, half a dozen or a dozen.. Red roses are the perfect gift for me for any occasion. 🙂
