31.12.2013 - Last day of 2013. Last blog of 2013

It is New Year Eve, last day of 2013.  As I am blogging I am also counting down to 2014 and looking forward to see the fireworks from the comfort of my house.  The weather is hazy and cloudy so not sure if can view nice fireworks later, in about 25 minutes.

2013 has been a super duper busy year for fashionably yours at work.  Thus I am praying that 2014 will be less busy year for me at work and give me more time to give back to society.  There is no need for any New Year resolutions.  I know my god will supply all my needs according to his riches in glory.  Just keep praying. 

Thank god for the 2 weeks of long vacation for me to relax, recharge and refresh my mind and clear my head.  Fashionably yours unplugged myself from work and truly enjoying my long vacations.  I saw many things, set me thinking and reflecting.  We may not have the best of everything in life but we can make the best of everything that we have.  Sometimes we must take a step back and look at the big pictures and at times take a back seat and let others lead. 

We are brought into this world with a mission that God has established for each of us here on earth.  God does not ask us to do things we cannot handle.  He will go before us and make way for courage, confidence and peace if you trust him.

Alright time for fashionably yours to standby to watch beautiful fireworks (tax payers money in the sky).

Wishing everyone a blessed and happy new year 2014.

Relax. Recharge. Refresh

Finally fashionably yours is on 2 weeks of long vacation for Christmas break. Need to take time off from work to clear the head, relax, recharge and refresh myself before the new year begin.  Really enjoying myself during this long break from work.  Went for body massage the other day and did some shoppings as well.  I miss shoppings. Work kept me so busy that I don't have time to shop.
My shoppings. The Hello Kitty tissue papers are so cute 
Bought CLEO magazine. FREE gift fake eyelash, an eye shadow pencil and eyeliner pencil
Bought women weekly and the free gift is the collagen drinks
The above magazines are bought from books kinokuniya. 
It is now boxing day and many places will be having post Christmas sales.  Time to go shopping and get some good deals.  Happy shoppings and happy holidays everyone.

Why do you blog

Have you ever asked yourself this question :  Why do you blog ?

Some blog for fame, money, etc.  It can turn things ugly if one is not careful.  I blog because I wanna share my life and learn from each other.  Not for fame nor monetary. Of course the latter would be a bonus and endorsements of products are welcome too. 

If your blog is of good substances, people will read so you don't have to boost or promote your blog. It is all a word of mouth.  I believe all people are smart and can decipher themselves in time to come which blogs are of good substances and worth their time reading.  As long as one is sincere in their blog is good enough.  Don't need to twist and turn so drama mama and use bombastic words.  Keep it simple, easy and pleasure to read.   

That is my two cents worth and feel free to answer the question : Why do you blog ?

Thanks and have a nice weekend. 


In about 6 weeks, 2014 is arriving.  Soon will be hello 2014 and goodbye 2013.  Looking back this year, I have accomplished most of the stuff I listed down.  In fact it is just those normal daily stuff which at times we will overlook.  Don't set too high a target that you cannot achieve.  Small steps goes a long way.  Don't be too ambitious.  It is okay to make it simple and achievable.

Guess it is also time to make 2014 list.  My 2013 list will follow to 2014 and adding on some to the list.  Praying about it to God's calling. It could be a big leap of faith for me in 2014.  Shall not divulge much since still praying about it.  I am glad one of my colleagues is going on one year sabbatical leave next year for a mission trip in Timor.  Praise the Lord.  Life is not about making money,  there are things in life which is priceless and no amount of money will be able to buy it.  Of course we need money to survive but perhaps sometimes we need things that money cannot buy for us to bring happiness.  There is a point whereby in my life that material goods no longer satisfy me.  So what you have all the Hermes Birkin bags and rolls Royce cars in the world.  It is only possessions.   I am searching for spiritual now.  Perhaps different stage of life have different perspectives and needs.  We all will grow up, mellow with age and become wiser.  We learn as we grow up everyday. 

Time for reflections and time to plan for 2014.   In fact, I never plan my foot injury and this intestines infection in 2013. I am sure nobody plan all these in their plans.  This bout of intestines infections is so serious that make me feel so sick.  Seen so many GPs and taking so many medicines.  Also my daddy almost want to admit me to Mount Elizabeth Hospital.  Well seen my family doctor yesterday and on antibiotics now.  With light diet and plenty of good rest, sure I will recover well with the Lord's blessings.  A doctor told me maybe it is God's will for my foot injury and wanting me to rest after working so hard. Let me share this bible phrase Proverbs 19:21 - You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail. 

Yes we can plan but ultimately the LORD's purpose will prevail.  We need to be flexible in our plans and trust the LORD.   My right foot injury and this bout of bad intestines infection really make me reflect alot recently.  There is a time for everything and things happen for a reason/season.  That is why there are four seasons but in Singapore is either rain, shine, hot or cooling seasons. 

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
a time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
a time to seek, and a time to lose;
a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
a time to tear, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.
(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 ESV)
