Being Single

Dear Reader, I’ve just finished reading ‘How to Be Single‘ by Liz Tuccillo. Perhaps the most spoiler-free review I could give about the book is this: The book basically sets itself around 5 women in their 30’s who have either recently gone through a rough break-up or divorce and who are trying to get back into…

Loving Yourself

Dear Reader, Last month, I wrote a short story titled ‘The Girl and her Beauty’. I’d like to explain further about the post and why it is so important to love oneself. In my work I interact with teenagers on a daily basis, and the biggest issue that I see is this: Insecurity. I also…

Change

Dear Reader, There was once a girl who had a friend name Change. She first met Change in kindergarten. He was quite intimidating and big, and she was scared at first. But then Change approached her jovially and asked if she’d like to go play with him in the playground, and she shyly said yes….

The Girl and her Beauty

Dear Reader, Once upon a time, there was a young, teenage girl who lived in a village. Like every other girl in that village, she was sweet, curious, gentle and sensitive and cheeky too! And just like every other girl her age, she worried about her appearance. She didn’t feel pretty enough, or smart enough, or cool enough…

What is Love?

Dear Reader, There was once a girl who was searching for the meaning of love. She asked St. Paul: What is love? He said: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it…

Instant Noodle

Dear Reader, There was once a mother who was struggling with her daughters tantrums. “I want that new phone.” said the girl. “No, its too expensive.” said the mother “But mommmm, everyone in school has it! And I’m stuck with this crappy old junk. I’m a laughing stock!” pleaded the girl. The mother sighed and…

About Soulmates

Dear Reader, I’ve been thinking a lot about soulmates recently. It seems like everyone these days wants their ‘happily ever after’. We all seem to be searching for that one person who can give us that happy ending, to build a life together, and to give us that connection we all crave so much. But…

My day at PAWS 

Dear Reader, Today I volunteered at an animal shelter. It was an uplifting experience, probably one of the best experience I’ve ever had. In this blog post I’d like to share certain tips if you’re interested in doing voluntary work. 1. CHOOSE A CAUSE WHICH YOU LIKE It is hard to be happy to volunteer if you…

I Have A Hobby

Dear Reader, I have a hobby: I read Tarot Cards. Yeap. The ones with images which can ‘tell your fortune’. Over-time I have heard people around me constantly proclaiming that reading Tarot is wrong. That I’m a devil-worshipper, a witch, invoking evil spirits, and am not a good Christian. I was even told not to tell this…

The Pebble

Dear Reader, When I was 13 years old, my ‘Sunday School’ teacher gave me a pebble, along with everyone in my class. She told us this “If you look at your pebble, it doesn’t look exactly the same as anyone else’s. This is because like the pebble, you are all unique in your own way, that…

The Power of MBTI

Dear Reader, Firstly my sincere apologies in taking a longer blog break then I intended. I guess I pulled a GRRM and let my procrastination get in the way! Haha! But oh boy do I have a topic which is nice for you today. It is: The Myers-Briggs Typology aka Best.Personality.Test.Ever. So before I go…
