Just Cause: Astry & Astry :p

before i lose my mojo and excitement on this batch of portrait i better blog and post them now. procrastinate another day, they probably will end up in the ‘to blog’ folder for another 10 years.

these sisters shared a very unique name, Astry. but they both are of totally different character. each with her own personality. Astry A. (Ana) is bubbly, out-going and fun. While Astry Z. (Azie) is the opposite. she’s the quiet, helpful, soft-spoken and that goes with the flow type. but they share two things in common apart of their first name. they have the kindest soul and giving heart! ❤

Ana and her little princess, Kiera are now residing in China (follow the husband who has been transferred there few months ago). they came back to Labuan just for a short break. Azie on the other hand, will pursue her course to the land down under very soon T____T i'll be losing my helpful assistant. pretty or not? i will surely miss her as a colleague as well as a dear friend.

so, jangan banyak merepek kerana kerepek dah habis.

let's see pretty ladies 😀

ever sweet Ana 🙂

Astry A.

young and pretty mama

meanwhile, a random shot. hehehe….

things around the compound.

meet Azie, the younger sister.

i wish i have long slim legs like that too.

yummy day

🙂

bring it on, sexy!

simply pretty and fierce.

hotness!!

one last ’emo’ shot of Azie.

coolness!

clingy.

sisterhood 🙂

smile and the whole world smile with you both 😀

^.^

kindred spirit

how can i resist a shot of their backyard that’s overlooking a lake. it’s where we spent some of our lazy weekends. sure gonna miss those times when leave soon T_____T

the backyard that has served us very very well during weekend chill outs.

and last but not least. a photo that sums up the personality of each of them. my fav!!! 😀

Astry Z. & Astry A. 🙂

i’m so glad to know, work, play, spending the weekends with this amazing sisters whom i now called friends.

Ana & Azie, i wish nothing but the best to both of you wherever you are. God bless!!

Happy Friday!!

Wedding: Beng & Nelly

Beng and Nelly got married December last year. I dint know Nelly but i definitely know the Ling family (Beng’s family). Beng’s sister, S.Lee, is my ex-classmate and their father used to be my Math teacher in secondary school. Beng or Ah Beng as we usually call him, is a robust, funny, loud and out going character. he owned his own little kopitiam business where friends and family gather to catch up or just simply update latest gossip. Nelly is a kind and soft-spoken girl. she teaches special students. with that i take my hat off *salute*. S.Lee contacted me that they needed a photographer to document their special day. after checking with my own schedule, no clash, i immediately agreed! and wah-lah!!! here are some of my fav shots of the day. and their wedding marked my last wedding of 2010. but it was my first time shooting wedding at my small little hometown where people are more skeptical than encouraging. *kancheong*

we started early in the morning. Nelly wore a bright red chinese traditional costume for the day. and she has a very pretty shoes that i so tempted to steal it.

Big Love + Little Nuggets

Filed under: Hot & Zesty People,Matter Of The Heart — lv @ 3:04 pm
Tags: , , ,

it’s amazing how a 7y.o could understand the meaning of LOVE and touch your heart by just a simple stick-figure drawing . a big uneven heart-shape circling little stick-figure family with two little heart-shapes on each parent’s hand. HEART-SHAPES ON EACH HAND!!! and a caption that will crush your heart to pieces. *wipes tears*

my heart still ache from all the unfortunate things that happened. horrible thing that no children in the world should ever experience in their young little lives. gosh!! how i hate messed-up grown-ups sometimes!!! now whenever i see their happy faces in the photos that i used to take for them send a big lump to my throat. ALAS. all i can do is pray for the better. God guides them and us to weather the storm.

to my beautiful Little Nuggets, whatever happen next, whoever you’ll be with next, whichever path you’ll take next, whenever you think of us, please know that ong che che always, ALWAYS, have this Big Love for you. bigger than the uneven heart-shape in the drawing.

xoxo

Oh Happy Day :)

*can’t stop grinning like an idiot*

because today has confirmed the little secret rumor that the account exec shared with me a few days earlier. THE WHOLE STAFF OF THE COMPANY RECEIVE THE MOST GENEROUS ‘DUIT RAYA’ SINCE THE HISTORY OF THE COMPANY – A ONE MONTH BONUS!!!! *howls* that struck everyone with disbelief. i even heard that some did the poco-poco dance in the office…. apuuuu!!! (not our branch)

with that i am so very THANKFUL. God, THANK YOU for putting me in this place!!! i pray that God will continue to pour His countless blessing towards the company and continue to prosper. and also with that, i wanna say a big THANK YOU to my generous big boss. God bless you, boss!! 😀

***********************************************************************************************************

have you ever have a feeling where your heart is so OVERWHELMED with GRATITUDE and JOY for knowing a person in your life that tears filled your eyes just thinking about them? yesterday that feeling consumed me out of the blue. i was so filled with gratitude and thankfulness for knowing this person in my life that ALL her sharing and teaching (with her shrieks and ketegasan, but what do u expect she is a teacher) came flashing one by one drilling my head like a driller and i realised how i have hold on to her words for the person i am today. i sent a THANK YOU message on her fb wall today as well as her inbox and she replied with ‘xie-xie’ LOL!!!! dear Lord, may You always shield her under wings and bless her with never-ending blessing from above in her life.

that person is our pastor’s wife and also a school teacher, dora andy.

have you say THANK YOU to a person that has inspired you or mold you or even left an impact to u today?! no day is better than today to say it.

because a post is always yummier with a photo.

"Today is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be gald in it." Psalm 118:24

be blessed, peeps!

there were times when i totally forgotten about this special day although a week or even a month before it i was ecstatic about it and reminded self countless-ly to make the effort to call at midnight. such time was like this time. you called to say good night last night but i was too excited telling you the disturbing exorcism story happened earlier on next door (interesting story will tell other time) until… wait for it… my phone (the one that i used talking to you) vibrated furiously and when i looked at the message, OH NO!!! it’s your birthday!! and it’s midnight already!! ok, so in between scary ghost story i wished you ‘Happy Birthday’. isnt it exciting having me as your gf? *bates eye-lashes* *sayang*

i’m trying to be romantic and all with this post but i think i fail miserably in that department lah ok. so do you!! we are such a boring couple, dont you think so?! but at least the most romantic act i’ve ever did for your birthday was a surprise birthday last year which makes everyone happy 😀 and this year you were too busy to utilize your present that it went burnt, so booyah!! so i win 2-0.

i’m sorry i’ve lashed you with hard words even on your birthday. you still have time to reconsider everything kns. i’m serious. *serious look* but still i’ll pray that you’ll have a great day today, and may our good God continue to pour His blessing upon you as He guides you in His path for you in your life. you have been one of the wonderful person that God has put in my life that i would never want to trade with anyone else. though we’ve stumbled rocky path that hurts our sole (ok we dont wear footwear in this metaphor) but with His guidance love will find a way…..

these two photos from Ip4 shall remind me of how blessed i am when i am with you…..

#1 in soul searching….

#2 and especially in gastronomical bliss….

Happy Birthday!!

Abisadj + Abigail + Acho Prince: Just Cause

the sun was kind that day. it wasnt too hot yet the light and its ray cast upon the earth with such beautiful and yummy glow. they came all the way from kuching for our cousin’s wedding as the flower girls and one nuisance (the boy). since their arrival, our house has never been so noisy…. they can never stop talking. asked too many questions and played with all my makeups T.T i have promised them that i’ll bring them out for a photoshoot. a photoshoot. not shopping. and the eldest kept reminding me the playground in boulevard mall. i didnt promise for the latter. because as i mentioned i promised a photoshoot. they put on their attires but still not ready to go. one was still fixing the jigsaw puzzles from the night before. one was still excitedly trying to beat my score on my psp. and one kept reminding me to to boulevard. again i didnt want to bind any promises because a promise made with a kid is like a covenant (wth) that you can never ever break. so i chose the easiest answer. ‘we’ll see’ T__T at the same time i clicked on these pretties and i just discovered a potential Guess or GAP kids model. my very own cousins 🙂

#1

you got it yee.... 🙂

#2

dreams can come true....

#3

bring it on girl!!!

#4

polka dots layered skirt is the sexiest

and this is my favourite!!!!!!!!!!!!

then suddely Acho came to interframe after tired with his jigsaw puzzles x.X

#6

"saya ialah kaya" his trademark now... lol!!

the one with the psp was still very busy…. haha!! so no photos of her….

then we proceeded to the nearby lake near the house.

#7

siblings....

#8

sisters love like a girlfiriend 🙂

#9

the kindest soul you could find in a kid

#10

#15

and then acho really threw a tantrum that pissed us all we just feel like thrawing him into the lake…..

#16

waterwork minta puji but still we heart him as much....

#17

since she missed out the earlier shot at home she has few redemption to make….

#18

#20

then my aunt wanted to wash her hair. we went to the saloon and it took so long that this was what the two girls did while waiting…..

#21

and at the end we didnt go to boulevard much to their disappointment T____T

Because A Phone Call Is Just Not Enough

Filed under: Hot & Zesty People — lv @ 5:54 pm
Tags: , , ,

the other night as i was sipping my hot milk by the pier overlooking the many boats docking at the harbour with robbie williams at the background i received a very unexpected call. the caller id was “T Mie”. that’s my youngest aunt. but as i said hello my heart leaped with joy upon hearing that chirpy voice….

all conversations were in mandarin sometimes with a mixture of bahasa melayu.

abisadj: ong che che…. how are you?! what are you doing?!! *ahhww…. my heart melt like butter on a hot pan*
me: good. kenapa kamu call ong che che ni?! mana mummy?! why do you simply use mummy’s phone to call?! *so unappreciative :p*

abisadj: i miss you lah. i am thinking of you so i call you lor…. *ahhwwww*
me: really? ok now let me call u back dont waste mummy’s credit or else…

so i called her back.

abisadj: why do you need to call me back? i have a lot of credit balance….
me: dont simply call using your mum’s phone. later she’ll faint after checking on the balance.

abisadj: i can use house phone also. no need for you to call back.
me: save that for emergency ok. so what are you doing? where’s mummy and daddy?

abisadj: mummy went out. daddy working. we all (she and siblings) stay at home with shannon che che (my other cousin). amor is drawing. you know lah she always drawing all the time. yang yang playing.
me: i see. have your front tooth grow?
abisadj: so so (i sense a doubting tone)

me: how are you all? have you been a good girl at school?
abisadj: yes. i got A for my english. not just A. it’s an A+!!
me: ok. what about maths?
abisadj: my mathematic is good too. bm also A.
me: good girl. keep that up!!

abisadj: mummy said you work very hard. dont work until late laaa….. *heart melt again*
me: *cough* mana ada?! your dad also work until late bah… same lah…

abisadj: i cant wait for school holidays…. three more weeks leh… i want to go to miri but you are not there… lai che che only…
me: come to labuan then. u want?
abisadj: what is in labuan?! is there big shopping mall?! *fainted*
me: sadly, there’s nothing here….
abisadj: eeee…. so boring….. *T___T*

me: what’s amor drawing?
abisadj: dunno…. not done yet.
me: pass the phone to her. i wanna speak to her.

amor’s turn.

me: hello there sweetie… what are you drawing?
abigail: i’m drawing ong che che… *ahhww…. sayang*
me: why do you draw me?
abigail: sebab kamu baik…. *LOL!!!!! suddenly bm!!*
me: finish your drawing then ask ah yee to take the picture of it ok?
abigail: ok. i’m drawing you watching tv.
me: we’ll see… now hand back to ah yee…

back to abisadj.

abisadj: ong che che, when are you getting married?! *fainted!!*
me: *LOL* just you wait ok…. will let you all know and you two will be flower girls again ok?!
abisadj: ok. i want to be your flower girl. i already told that koko (The Boyfriend) last time. (i can hear her giggling))
me: yalayalaaaa… remember to take a photo of amor’s drawing k.
abisadj: why? u want me to take the photo and then tag you on facebook is it?
me: *bumped* (because that was exactly my intension and was about to teach her how) u know how to do that?
abisadj: i know…!!!! *kids nowaday*

the conversation continued with some more nonsense and with me ended it with some lame advice eg: dont play with fire, sharp object or try commiting suicide by jumping out the windows.

and that unexpected call made my day….

but that was just not enough for me. i might be in their thoughts but they are in my heart. and better still i have them in still image that i can look at anytime i like. so here are my three little nuggets!!

#1

my 8y.o fierce (i mean it) young cousin, abisadj.

#2

sweetest thing. 6y.o abigail.

#3

naughty yet adorable u cannot resist now 4y.o Acho Prince.

ong che che love you all!!!

be blessed, peeps!

Monday Musings

10.19p.m. and i am still at the office. rushing for datelines. oh my. it has been so long since i last do this kind of work and frankly i kinda enjoy it sometimes. and i thank God for FRIEND!! a good friend is here who is kind enough to accompany me. actually it’s more than i begged and dragged him to. he’s watching the tv and he’ll kill me if he see me updating this blog instead of working so i better be fast :p

a memory of a long time friend slip into my mind last night. a friendship now that shamefully more just as acquaintance these days. time and geography changed us. slowly robbed away our heart towards each other. or maybe it’s just me. but there’s more to it. there are too many layers of surfaces before i could reach that once a very comforting feelings of being together. whenever i try to peel each of it i cant seem to reach the bottom of it. not even the center of it. i reminisce our days back then. one fine night always come to mind in clear vivid scene.

it’s your hand…. knowing my pain, my scarred young heart that wasnt used to such turmoil, you hold my hands. we walked hand in hand in the twilight without looking at each other but in firm grips. silence. we pretended to ignore the horrid situation until you said “hey, it’s ok to cry u know. if you want to. you’ll feel better if you just cry it out.” and my tears dropped rapidly even before you finish the sentence. maybe you heard my silent sobs although i’ve tried hard not to release any sound. without looking at each other you knew…. and that my dear friend i miss the most about you….. a real friend who doesnt need to be told that she / he is needed when hard times struck. a friend who pretended not to care on the outside as you want to but care enough on the inside to just hold your hands and understand. dear friend, i know you dont read my blog but i wish you and family well. now and forever be blessed.

so thank God for friends….

be blessed, peeps!
