Crystal Jade

Since 2007, from strangers to my client to my soulmate.  12 years my senior yet we can click amazingly WELL! In fact, I kinda click pretty well with her entirely family..her 60 year old mother and elder bro whom I described as “Artsy”!

With this family, there’s always laughter cos we are natural jokers..haha

Susan took half day and we hang out from 3.30pm till 10.30pm! Regards to insurance, I’m her advisor. In other areas of life, she guides me! Very much like elder sis to me.

Susan’s Precious….

Jade

The moment she saw me, her eyes beamed with excitement as though I’m a new toy in her house! Next thing I know was, she ran towards my direction and hug me! This 2 year old.. hyper active & stunningly sociable!

I have uncle and aunties who watch me grow up and now I’ve become one who watched infants grow up to little girls..

House is filled with warmth and laughter of these two girls! Susan was busy feeding, bathing, playing with them till its time..and then, sleep.

Crystal asked me to watch her draw while Jade kept asking me to carry her! Woo.. no wonder Susan is slimmer than me!

Something I heard recently, taking care of children  is so much tougher than work. 3 hours with the kids, Totally Convinced.

Quote of the day: “Mothers are Warriors!”

Formula to Lasting Marriage

I heard some profound sharing about Everlasting marriage this morning,

Goes something like this,

Marriage is all about two individuals who are mature with common values, accepting each other strengths and weaknesses to build the relationship through the highs and lows in life together.

Well, I’ve heard many other sayings..

Some men especially from Singapore says,

 “Just give in or say Yes to her lo…”

Some prob say,

“Forgive and Forget. Tomorrow will be better”

Believers of “Cash is King” say,

“Everlasting marriage is crap. Signing that piece of marriage cert to means pledging 50% of my asset to another woman. So, don’t marry!”

People of great tolerance or “Players” say,

“Close one eye for the sake of family” or the other way round,”When you play, make sure you do a clean job!”

For me, I suppose its a tailor-made thing. My trick is, “Never fail to make him or her special if this person is utmost important to you.” 

And towards other aspect of life besides human relation matters, I say its “You get what you give.” Its easy to make one happy as well as make one sad, your choice.

Easier said then done, hence I’m reminding myself here!
