the best is getting better

When it comes to taking a break, relax and unwind, I am all for it. Life is too short to spend a lot of it at work and far away from your love ones.

Today I decided to take a break from work and hang out at home. Enjoying my time and doing things I love. Before 12:00 pm I have already done a lot of things at home including doing Zumba fitness workout and made three digital layouts.

little things that make me happy

I love making lists of simple things in life that makes me happy, like this post and this post. Being happy is not accidental, it’s a decision. You have to decide to be happy. When I watched Life is Beautiful movie back in 1997, I was a little bit sceptical with the idea of you can be happy in a stressful time. I usually thought that when this happened than I can be happy, like when I have money than I can be happy or when my kids behave than I can be happy or when my husband loves me than I can be happy. If that is the case than I can never be happy period.

Over the years I’ve learned that if you want to be happy, than be happy. Find or do little things that makes you happy. No one in the world can make you happy except yourself.

Currently I find such joy and pleasure with these things (in no particular order)

1. Scrapbooking

After all these years, scrapbooking can always make me happy. I just love creating beautiful layouts with my photos and document my life


2. Photography

Documenting your life through your camera lens is so liberating. Every time I looked at my old photos I was transport to that moment. Now I am happy that my eldest son is taking an interest in photography.


3. Fast internet connection

Back in 2005, having an internet connection was such a blessing but now having a fast internet connection is already a must. I just can’t believe how technology changed in less than ten years.

4. Cornetto Ice Cream – as always, ice cream can lift my spirit almost immediately

5. Flickr

I have been using flickr for almost seven years now and I am really happy with the service. I used to park my edited and selected photos there and now I have used flickr as my backup photo storage. I just wish in the future they will include a camera upload function right inside the flickr for iphone app. I am happy that I can still use flickr almost everyday.


6. iphoneoraphy

Never in a million years I would turn to my phone as my backup and go to camera. Iphone really change that for me. Now I don’t miss a moment because I can capture my daily life and daily routine easily.


If you look hard all around you, will find a lot of things that you can do or turn to that makes you happy. When you think about it, I believe that you will find yourself busy with beautiful and happy things that sometimes you will forget to be sad or mad.

The most interesting I learned, I still find pleasure in all of these things. The style might change, the flavor might change but the main item is still the same.

#currentlylist // April fifteen

I am a little bit sad that my weekend is over. I wanted to do a lot of things personally that I just don’t want it to end. Every Sunday  night I have to tell myself that I am so lucky to have a job and things are going to be different.

I really need for things to be different. I need to feel like I am worthy. I have been at this job for over fifteen years and yet I still feel like I don’t know anything. What I did was worthless in the end.


“8 Questions. 52 Weeks. Embracing Right Now.

The Currently Journaling Challenge takes one minute out of your week to document your story right now.”



This is my list for today

watching: Bones latest episode

reading: I am already at chapter 9 of Touch and go novel. I am so proud of myself

listening: the sound of rain on my iphone

making: a mental vacation plan. Oooo I do wish I could go and visit Rome or Paris

feeling: a little bit sick and unwanted

planning: a mini vacation break some time this week. I just love to take a day off in the middle of the month just to chill out.

loving: MAC eyeshadow – Tease with ease (beautiful color)

Come and join the fun

Curious what my lists look like last week?

Project Life [Hanif] Week forty nine

project life

I really appreciate my weekend. Having the time as my own is so liberating. I can wake up early in the morning and do all the things I love to do including playing with my baby boy, who is approaching toddlerhood in less than three weeks. With that my Project Life (featuring Hanif) is coming to an end. I love doing this project even though it really took a lot of commitment and consistency.

I know that when Hanif is no longer a baby, he and I will appreciate these moments capture in picture and documented.

Date: April 05 – April 11, 2013

Week 49-1


Week 49-2



Project Life is a memory keeping concept created by Becky Higgins. It can be anything you want it to be.

There’s totally no wrong way of doing this.
