the perfect day

This week has been ugly. And i've been.. i can't find the words to say. Whatever or however it is, every fall is another reminder that there are people around you who care and love you. They stick around and more importantly, they tell you that they're not going anywhere. Simply, they'll be right there when you need them. Thank you, loved ones.

Dreaming of the perfect day. How cute is this note? Some days are better forgotten while we pursue better ones. This may come in handy for you too, sweethearts.

my new, awkward age.

I am 21 today AND so uncertain how to feel about it.

To the many sweet people who reached me from all over, thank you for every wish and prayer, it's very overwhelming. I had to hold back tears countless times.

Two special people surprised me last Saturday and i must make a special mention,

To Sally and Salina,
thank you so much for a great dinner, gorgeous setting and chained surprises. All of that was so much hardwork and effort on your parts and i bet it took much time to plan and put it together. You guys did a fantastic job. Because you went through so much trouble just to make this happen for me and the girls, i am forever thankful. Thank you, thank you, thank you. It was splendid, i loved it.

Simple, intimate, meaningful birthday celebrations with the people you love, is the best gift.

i wuv you, birthday boy!

To the one with the cute nose and the best smile, Happy Birthday!

My first conversation with this silly person was today, 4 years ago. I didn't think there was going to be a nerve in me that would be tickled into fancying him but because that conversation occured, it led to a mutual friendship and later, every wonderful else. Eversince, we grew up together and it's been so wonderful.

What i'm sharing with you now, in the light of my lover's birthday today, is a severely truncated version of how we first met and the developments that followed. I doubt the story matters more than our birthday boy who turns 23 today. :)

The sweet and kind Yas is now wiser, tougher, smarter and still every bit as incredible as when i've first known him. He still rocks my world and i suspect that might go on for a very, very, very, very, very long while. <3

you turn my frown, upside down..

The tiny, pretty one. My little niece and her pink play-doh plastered nails.

Oh, these little people and the things they do..

on my wishlist

Ahh, my heart aches for this..

The Maria you know is all flip-flops, sneakers and flats. In fact, i am spotted in flats only occasionally and more rarely in heels. Been looking for a pair of shoes that wouldn't take my outfits down with it to become sloppy the way flip-flops and my trashed sneakers often do and i find heels too dressy for my casual weekends out.

This pair fits every criteria. Not too much because they're sneakers yet with the cork wedge, girly enough. I looooooooooove it. Getting them shipped in when some dollars drop by to stay.

Terribly lusting them! 80%20 is so genius, i swear.

Just how fierce is this chic? (polkdots-vodkashots)

Oh, i've just gotten a new shade of blonde. I was excited but it's taking a strange turn now that i'm no longer feeling it. Not to say that I won't change my mind but i might just go with something else before i board that flight. Hmm, I didn't think i've changed so much? I thought wrong then.

It took only a blink and Yas comes around riding his little vintage motorbike. T'was love at first sight, for the both of us. But surely, it's going to need some degree of dexterity to put this bad boy together and give it a life, a fire of some sort.

And randomly, this is a good read.

just to let you know..

I am back and sticking around this time! To celebrate, posting what rocks my world and makes me happy, my breakfast.
This was to be put up weeks ago but here it is now: Raisin scone, strawberry jam, EBT.

And for a startling update, Jennifer from Simply Breakfast is still posting! Take a minute and have a peek at the new shots from Paris (if you love food and more so breakfast, just the way i do).

Enjoying the luxury of sleep at the moment, 3 months worth. Readjusting back into my old life is as overwhelming as it is with the former work schedule. For a start, oh god, all the errands to run. Most of which i must say are so very urgent because i never found the time to attend to them during those hectic months.

Probably a third of the people i love, miss, wants to see and catch up with have already made dates with me and it's scattered all over the month. I also owe birthday dates with the April babies and now just about to get round planning for mine.. and Yas. And i don't have to remind you about my working on that uni admission, almost a wrap but not quite yet.

May is a handful. Could've been easier if i was willing to compromise my hours of sleep so i'm prepared to work around it. Not complaining.

Ahh.. Gleefully blogging.

Good morning, blog pals. You've been missed.
