How often do you

reminisce about the good old times of your childhood days? Do you love your growing up years?

I certainly do. Days ago, while I was on my business trip to the Philippines, I was having a small chat with a friend, and we were talking about how stressful it is that we are now an adult with so much responsibilities on our back. We were happily chatting away about our childhood and laughing out loud about the silly things we did when we were young. That chat actually lightened up my mood and I’m just so glad to share stories of my life with someone who has the same outlook as I do. I’ll leave you out of the details and hope that you do take time to think back the good old times of your growing up years. It’ll really make you smile silly, like I do.

I got home today at noon after being away for exactly a week. I crashed out for 4 straight hours, obviously for the exhaustion of my trip to the Philipines. It’s been a long busy week for me, working everyday for at least 18 hours, even when I’m back in my hotel.

I’m sorry I couldn’t come in earlier to keep you posted of my well-being as I could hardly squeeze anytime for my personal stuff. The internet network was driving me crazy, most of the time I couldn’t get any connection except in my hotel. My phone network was also giving me a big problem as I can’t receive any text messages while I was there. When I arrived Singapore, a whole long list of ‘beepings’ of text messages came in, a couple of days late. Great, huh? Darn mobile server!

Hey, I have to apologize for not putting up my layout which I did for Made With Love last weekend. So, here it is and I hope you’ll like it! 🙂

This layout is specially dedicated to the hubby, in celebrating our upcoming 8th wedding anniversary on Sep 30. Happy Anniversary Darling and I Love You! 🙂

All the products used are available at Made With Love.

There’s also another news I need to break to you. It has been one of the most difficult decision I had to make and it has taken me weeks to think about it over and over again. It took me pains to reconsider the options on how to make things work but I guess I finally came to light in setting my priority right.

I have officially pulled out from my Design Team commitment to Magistical Memories from today. Since the start of the year until now, I have been working with one of the best chipboards manufacturers and the owner, Crystle, has been ever so supportive and understanding through out the year. Thank you Crystle for the wonderful opportunity and for indulging us with your never ending awesome products! 🙂

And to the DT team, the girls have been so AMAZINGLY great to work with and they are a bunch of wonderful girls! I have so much pleasure working with all of them, who are super talented and beautiful. I’ll miss them sooooooooooo much! Sob…………………….

So much so for a week’s update. I hope all of you have had a great week. I want to thank all of you who have popped in and left such warm messages that never fail to make me smile each day after I had a long day at work. I’m happy to know that a lot of you out there has actually been following my postings for ages, and some of you are still relatively new to my blog. Nevertheless, I hope you’ve enjoyed my blog and thank you for inspiring me to continue to write.

Hey, I’m supposed to announce the 2 winners for my giveaways. The response is really overwhelming and I hope you could give me time until tomorrow to read every one of your messages. I’ll announce the winners after they’re being picked randomly ok?

I’m taking a short break from work early next week. I think I deserve this very much! I haven’t taken any break since I started this job 6 months ago. I just want to spend some quality time with my family. I have missed them so much from my constant absence from home.

I hope you’ll have a great weekend and see ya soon! 🙂

    Love this very very beautiful layout!
    I think that you are a very lucky lady! With such a crazy working schedules, you must have a very understanding and loving hubby, being there for you and your boy, supporting you and making sure everything went well at home while you were not there. No wonder you love him so very very much 🙂 Be grateful and cherish what you have, may you guys live happily ever after 🙂

Did I ever mentioned that you and your hubby make such a handsome couple!!!!! Will be looking forward to the day that you both celebrate the Jubilee year (50th year) of marriage!!! (If we still ever keep up blogging at that age!)
