Hey guys!! *wave*
I know I have been dormant and almost dead for a while... bout 2-3 months. Nothing excites me at all nowadays.. i can't even crack a smile! siriussly! It's like I have LOST my mojo.. or whatever that is that makes people lives.
But yesterday.. 2 things happened that made me happy.. Firstly, a beloved friend sent me a few emails with pics of her kitty.. that made my day .. I just cant say no to kitties :-) Secondly, I found out that this pic: (my pic) is nominated for the "picture of the week"..
Well, there are 4 more people that made it to the final, with their much nicer, prettier pics.. so, I wouldn't put my hope too high. This morning I checked.. I didn't do too well, I just got 48-ish votes.. I am just thrilled that I made it to the finals - top 5 .. I mean, competing with 500++ people.
Here's the link if you wanna see.. or, maybe vote for me *wink wink*
Thanking you in advance *hugs*

I have posted this map about a year ago.. today, I am posting it again, with an update. =D.
I love this map so much because it made me smile (my secret, LOL'd - silly, squee-ing smile). When I look at the words,e.g.; Fort James *ahems!!* , Governor's Mansion, Gallow's Point, Marshallsea Prison, Fort Charles, North Docks *double AHEM* ("I dont see your ship, Captain..?" - in a seriously slashable situation) I know for certain that this is NOT the actual Port Royal map.. but .. I just love it. Today I am also posting two pictures of Port Royal. These are 2006 pictures, so, no traces of the pirates and cute royal navy officers there =D (sigh, How I wish they are actually there)

You have no idea .. just how you've made my day!
WARNING : Avatar - Spoiler pics ahead.
Oh well.. it's been a while since I last post. I miss you guys here.. but I have been held captive elsewhere, in a land called RL. It's the beginning of the year / a new academic year - I have tons of stuff to do as a mom and a teacher and a staff and a maid and a wife. I managed to settle almost everything.. just a few bits and pieces .. here and there.. Well, i personally think, a mom's work will never end.. so.. more's coming my way this weekend when my kids comes home for their holidays.
Here's a few updates on the last few weeks;
1. Kids in bording school now - I have the house to myself.. He heheh.. so I can sleep all day.. LJ all night.. draw all I want.
2. My computer crashed two weeks ago - I had it done.. but it co$t me lots of money.. DARN! but I'm good now. I am so sorry that I have missed so many posts and comments due to this. So sorry also that I didnt reply so many emails.. I will try to catch up on your news /emails soon.
3. I watched AVATAR.. finally.. Well, what can I say.. in my humble opinion.. the story is pretty much predictable (some movies are, unfortunately) but, I LOVE the CGI!!!! It's just awesome!!.. I was squeeing silly while i was watching it. The geek in me is fully activated :-) Days after that I found myself watching the "making of AVATAR" on Youtube just to learn how the graphic was done. AMAZING!
4. Finally, but.. most important thing .. I have to friend's lock most of my journal entry. I am sorry.. but due to some unforseen circumstances.. it had to be done.
Here's a little clip form AVATAR .. enjoy!
(forgive my geekiness!! :-)
Okie! that's it. Take care for now ..all my dear friends ...
Love you guys.
It's the school holidays.. and we took the kids for some nature appreciation tour. We have to drive about thirty KM up there to the gorgeous place..and hike a bit to the Tree Top Walk ticket booth. It's was a tiring day.. but.. seriousy.. I'd do it again if I have the chance. The view there is just simply spectacular. See it for your self.
Caution - image HEAVY
It's just simply breathtakingly beautiful. I was a little dizzy of the height.. but I can't help to 'squee' at the lovely scenery
That's the canopy bridge. Whew!!
This is a flower of one of the huge tree. It looks exactly like the Eywa flower in AVATAR.
They even flew / floats around the same way. (That old hand is mine *ahems!!*)
Whoa!! I was about to get a nosebleed. LOL
When I spotted this pool.. I just wanted to jump and swim. Who cares for the world?
This is the view from the bridge.
This tree caught my special attention. It's a nice tree - for sketching or watercolouring I mean.
Deep in the forest.
This pic is definitely very interesting.. I happen to spot these three different butterflies at the same place. Simply awesome!
That's got to be the biggest ant I have ever seen. It's about 3cm lengthwise
Some wild orchids.. so beautiful.
I'm dead tired.. (just imagine.. it's only 11.45am and I'm about to collapse) .. wait!! suddenly, I have noseblock.. and OH NOES!!! there's dust, EVERYWHERE.. and ughhh.. Where's my inhaler? OMG!!!! OMG!
I suppose.. the picture says it all
Thanks for the Vgift.
About yesterday, Oh god! I am so sorry, I am not at the liberty to say it, I was so sad, so sad, Even now, as I begin to think about it.. my eyes is suddenly filled with tears, and it all gets warm and fuzzy .. I could still feel the pain in my heart .. .
It's like something heavy .. a dead weight in my chest. I can only say this much, someone broke my heart. ..Someone I love so dearly *sigh* The thing is, I didn't know that at this age.. my strong, my so many times wounded heart can still be broken. That is the reason, I always avoid getting close to people, loving people.. and that is the reason I never really have any close friends. It sucks.
It'll go away in a few days.. I'll be okay. I'll survive, like I always have..
I wont cry, you see?
I never stopped to think
How empty it would be
I never thought of the day
When you'd drift away from me
You'll never know my pain
I wont cry, you see?
I say hello and wish you well
Each time I saw you
Im glad you're good and happy
But you'll never know my sorrow
I wont cry, you see?
You are always so wonderful
As the day you hold me
I used to say, "I love you"
But those words are dead in me
I can't cast the thoughts away
Trust me, I've tried
You'll never see my tears
I wont cry, you see?
Feeling a little blue.. and poetic today. *sigh* I am so down and just barely holding myself together..
Dont laugh .. just my try at poetry. I need a hug.
Wishing my dear friend..
Sorry for the lateness in wishing you. Been busy with RL.
May all you dreams & wishes comes true.
It's an honour to have you as a friend *hugs*
Have a great year ahead.
Wishing my Friend, "atlantis2_04"
Have a GREAT year ahead.
The rain scene.. tugs my emotion EVERY single time ;-3
WARNING : spoiler!
(I 'm sure you have seen this movie, Oh well.. just to be safe)
"I love you, ..most ardently"...
Oh my GOD!! pure sexual connotation. Period!
Oh.. DAMN his composure!!...Damn propriety!! Darcy should have just kissed her right then, you could see she wanted him too. *flailing*
Love surface despite family and inferiority of birth. Elizabeth Bennet is my most passionate character in literature. And, I am already in love with Matthew Macfadyen. Darcy & Elizabeth, easily my super favourite couple in literature . ...ever, ever, ever!! Hmmm *close eyes*
I watch this movie again last night .. and cried my river, well, ..again!. I wanna dream a little rain scene.
