OMG! I Can Skate!

Yes, the title says it all. I've finally learned how to skate without always landing on my butt!

It all started when my friends invited me to go ice skating with them. I was delighted at the idea, but I dreaded going ice skating. The last time I've visited the skating rink in Sunway Piramid didn't end too well. Let's just say that I was covered in bruises and a stiff arm despite the many attemps to skate on the slippery sheet of frozen water.

I came with my brother, Daniel and cousin, Celvin.

Don't be fooled by the looks of the big guy, that's my freakishly tall baby brother Daniel (he's about 190cm tall)!

**I hope he doesn't see this...**

So we all got our entry passes, skates and gloves. We were ready. At last, the moment of truth; time to skate. Before we got started, I kept questioning my friends, "How do you skate?? How do you skate???" But none of them seemed to be able to explain the secret of skating. Oh man!

I was the last among my friends to get on the ice and quickly went to the side so that I have something to support me. They could skate so swiftly and smoothly. How do they do it? I observed and tried as best as I can to copy their moves.

A little kid passed by me skating like as if it was as easy as breathing! I really gotta learn how to skate! Fast!

I held on to the side and began to push myself using one side of my leg and I began to move! I did the same thing with the other side and soon, I began to move slowly. As soon as I was confident enough, I let go and before I realised it, I was skating! I can skate!!

After a few rounds, I soon got used to manuvering myself on ice. I've finally learned how to skate! At last!

As I was slowly skating feeling confident that I couldn't slip and fall on the ice this time, I heard a voice call out my name. I turned my head, lost my balance, and with one leg in the air, SPLASH! The now melted ice I landed on got me all wet! Oh well, so much for staying dry.

Fatiha, one of my friends whom I was skating with apologized for distracting me and felt really bad, but now that I come to think about it, I thought it was funny so all is forgiven.

At last, it was lunchtime! we had Terriyaki for lunch this time; a nice change compared to eating fast food all the time whenever I go out with my friends. But it wasn't cheap let me tell you this.

Happy Chinese New Year with Love

GONG XI FA CAI and HAPPY VALENTINES my dear readers! Its Chinese New Year and you know what that means..... cha ching! MONEY!! Oh! And family and friends.

I've got my nails done using a new pattern that I've just discovered, perfect for the year of the Tiger.

Hee hee.... sorry for the crap picture, but there wasn't enough light and it was hard to focus. Do you realise how hard it is to make such a pattern like that with a not-so-thin brush?? But, it was worth the effort in the end :)

My family and I left for Ipoh to visit my dad's side of the family last friday for our annual family dinner on the eve of Chinese New Year. You will not believe the terrible traffic jam that we had to go through. Worst of all, I just HAD to sit at the sunniest side of the car where I was sunbathing for the past 5 excruciating HOURS!!

By the time we've reached the house, we were just in time for dinner and it looked fantastic! Food fit for a king!

Mmmm..... doesn't that make you hungry?

To start off our tradition is to mix up the... ermm.... I don't know how do you spell it so please forgive me if I'm wrong, the Low Sang.

Yep, we use our chopsticks and we lift them up as high as possible to represent good luck and fortune! Its sweet and crunchy but its not exactly one of my favourite stuff to eat.

That day was also the day where tons of couples got hitched on that auspicious day. To be honest, I find it kinda cheezy to be married on Valentines day; its sooo unromantic and not creative enough. I wouldn't want to share the spotlight with a bunch of other couples if I were to be married. If I were to choose a date to be married, I'd like to marry like on the anniversary of our first date or if I'm really forgetful, which I am, I'd marry during the month of May or something like that.

Gosh, all that and I've only had a crush on ONE guy throughout the 16 years of my life. Its sad, but, I have standards.

Once again, Happy Chinese New Year and Happy Valentines Day!!

A Beautiful Wedding

30th January, 2010 was the day Mary and Damien was married at the Holy Family Church, Kajang. It was a beautiful day! The sun was shining and there was not a cloud in the sky; the perfect day for a wedding.

Mary was born in Malaysia and is the daughter of Francis and Alice Lim and my mom is a friend of theirs. Damien, on the other hand, was born in France whose parents are Christian and Bernadette. Our couple met in Gold Coast, Australia and because of their meeting there, here we are today!

Everybody was there to attend the wedding!

And the choir group is ready.

The bridesmaids and flower girls were all dressed in hot pink, the theme of this wedding and I love their dress! I wish I could've taken a picture, but I was way at the other side with the choir so I couldn't get a good view.

After the wedding, we went straightaway for the wedding lunch in a chinese restaurant. There, we actually ate lobster salad!

There was also Brenden and Aaron who is some of Mary's old classmates who sang "The Prayer" so beautifully. No Joke. It was really, really good. They sang like professionals!

Okay, I know what you're thinking so don't get the wrong idea!

All in all, I had a wonderful time at the wedding. Congratulations to the new couple!
