How do you tell yourself that 'tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all? Because the reality of it is, it sucks. With everything that's been going on lately it definitely is a bad time for a breakup. I was getting myself for it, playing it over and over in my head but it still sucks. Actually uttering the words is hard, have you ever tried it?

It's been a very, very long time since I have posted on this very rusty blog, but I've been itching to write something lately. My life's been ok, nothing much has changed. I'm getting older, aren't we all? I have a very cute nephew. That's probably the best thing that has happen this year. My grandmother passed away peacefully last Wednesday night. We had a little get together with the cousins and reminded ourselves we probably won't be having any major get together anytime soon. It was sad really.

The night my grandmother died was one of my the saddest I ever remembered, other than when both my grandpas died. We didn't get any sleep that night and day, only slept when she was laid to rest. Somehow it put things to prospective, and things have changed. Only her sister was still living with us. What would happen to my aunts, I wonder if they will come to visit? My sent her to the grave, it was a humbling experience. I hope I get a similar farewell when it's time.

Moths ago my beloved cat Mojo died. He died in my arms. I'm still grieving. I can't believe he is gone. Don't get me wrong I still have my cats but Mojo was my cat. We sleep together, we do things that James wouldn't do. I know someone would thing he was just a cat, but he's not just a cat. He was my baby. No one could replace that. 

I thought I was strong enough to go through another ordeal but I'm not. Truthfully I thought I was strong enough but I'm not. Will I be ok? Yes in time. Has it changed me? Yes somehow. Do I regret anything, many but not this particularly. So do I think 'tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all? No, it's always better to be loved. Always.

Hello Brazil!!

First of all I am trying to write this on the iPad...I hope this turned out good. As you all know it's World Cup season and we say hello to Brazil. I was honestly worried that the World Cup wouldn't even have its opening ceremony after reading that most of the construction of the stadiums, walkways etc was not completly done. Glad they had their first kick off 3 hours ago.

Group A, Brazil versus Croatia. Croatia was leading the first half of the first half with an own goal by Marcelo. After that Neymar scored twice and to add more salt to injury Oscar scored the third. I really thought Croatia would've pushed forward but after Neymar's penalty I think it went from bad to worse. They missed a lot of chances but they can still do better in their next two games. 


Ok, side note. I've been following the transfer window since the football season ends and was hoping Fabregas would come back to Arsenal since he is rumor to leave Barcelona. Arsenal gets first pick to buy him back and also heard they might try to get Carlos Vela back too. But then I saw this and kinda breaks my heart....

It is sad! But he still is wearing his infamous number 4 BLUE! Ughhh...disgusts me :P Why Arsene Wenger, why?!???!!! Enough rant. El capitan, you will always be a gunner to me...even in Blue.

Let's start this story from the beginning. It is really a short story. A few months ago my sister brought home a little adorable cat, a stray she found in the parking lot. She looks like this.

The first day she got home I fell in love. She was so scared I think because she has been living outside by herself for maybe a month give or take. My sister tried to look for the mama and other siblings but couldn't find them. So I am assuming she was dumped there. She really reminded us of our beloved Jumper (who died about 2 years ago). Everyone loved Jumper, even my parents. That is saying a lot. He was spoiled and sleeps on the couch, on a pillow with a blanket.

So when this little girl came everyone was smitten, even our resident cat (he is spoiled and he knows it). Since our resident cat (who's name is officially James now) was separated with his sister he was lonely. Don't worry his sister found a good home with my brother's friend. He was so happy to find a friend to play with. This happened. Cue photo.

Yes, double trouble. They really became friends on the spot. We were hoping they will get married and have beautiful kids together.

 But a few days after new years I found her lying in the kitchen. She was breathing heavily. It was such a sad sight. The night before I was watching her watch me from the kitchen. I sat with her and she sat on my shoulder. I told her she smelled like cat and said don't try to break the vases in the house. A little after that she died. I honestly don't know what happened. It wasn't even my cat (she was my sister's) but I was so sad, I think because we all really like her, a lot. Till today I don't know what happened to her. I am glad it wasn't a virus since James is still well and I think he misses her too. He isn't as hyper as he use to be and I am going to have to let Mojo cheer him up a bit.

This was taken the day she died. He stayed with her. It was so sad to see him searching for the little cat. James is doing well, he is just a little spoiled now. We will miss you girl cat. I honestly don't know if we ever name her. I just call her 'girl'.

New Year celebration Part II: Birthdays

Two days after our family new year celebration we got a call from my granduncle saying that he is having another party for families at his house. We were wondering if it was just an extension of the new year celebration on Tuesday. No fireworks this time though only good company, food and karaoke sessions. Hahaha which I feel is a must at all these parties. We found out it was also my aunt, uncle and their son's birthday. So it was like a triple whammie. So far new year is not good for me. I need to start eating healthy but since it was a family thing I will give it a slide.

There was a lot more families that turned up I think because the next day is a weekend. It feels like the weekend comes twice for me. So far 2014 is good, I need to be more positive for the next 361 days to come.

Day 2 photo: Something that starts with G

Grandma of course. I can't wait to see her again in a few weeks. I miss you grandma!! If you are interested to do these photo a day you can go check out Fat Mum Slim blog

Happy New Year!!

Happy new year everyone!!

I have been neglected this blog since last year (can't believe last year was less than 24 hours ago!!) and I hope this year I will be good and blog more. I hope things will look up for me in 2014. I hope many things and I am trying to think more positive for 2014. :) I do hope you guys had a wonderful new year celebration with family, loved ones and friends.

So many things are happening this 2014. Marriages, surprised marriages from gathering, etc. I can't wait. I hope time don't just past us by like 2013. I feel like 2013 was just breezing through. It is kinda scary. I hope to do things I put off in 2013, change for the better, be a better person over all, get in shape and all kind of good thing.

Wish me luck you guys and I hope to leave you with love notes here everyday :). I can't promise cause I don't want to break it but I will try my hardest.

First photo of the 2014,

I am doing the ever so famous 'Fatmumslim' photo a day and hopefully I finish it this month. I have been skipping the last couple of months. is Day 1: Lunch. I did not eat lunch but instead I had a karaoke session with my sister. It was fun, I can't wait to do it again tomorrow. LOL.

That is all for now. I am rambling. I hope you all have a great start of 2014!

Playlist Friday: Baby it's cold outside - Ceelo Green ft Christina Aguilera

Happy Friday! I have been very bad and I have been wanting to post things but haven't yet. Sorry! It has been a busy-ish few weeks for me. :)

Today I wanted to share this song that's been in my head for awhile and it is a christmas song. Haha.. I don't know why it is only October. Every time when my birthday comes around I tend to listen to a lot of christmas songs.. It is how it is I guess.

I love Christina's voice in this song. I love this song in general. But I don't get the video though. I have been cleaning and we are celebrating my birthday this weekend with my sisters. It's the only time we have together and we might be having pizza and steamboat party. Hope I have some photos to share.

Have a great weekend everyone! What is your favorite Christmas song? I would look to give them a listen.

Playlist Friday (Saturday Edition) : Louis Armstrong - What a wonderful world

Happy weekend! I wanted to post this Friday but I lost track of time. Since its our (mine and CLK) birthday weekend I thought I would share one of my all time favorite song. I fell in love with this song the first time I heard it when I was about 10. It was in my reading class or something. I can't remember. After listening to it, it just captured my heart.

What a wonderful world by Louis Armstrong has got to be my number 1 favorite song. I wish the world was as simple as the song. We need our wonderful world back. :) Birthday weekend again, can you believe it's been a year since my last birthday!!!? Crazy fast the time flies. I hope you all have  a wonderful weekend. :)
