Kongkong turns 94! :)
Isn't that just plain amazing? We planned a huge birthday bash for kongkong, where 400 guest attended to celebrate this memorable day where kongkong hits 94! its unbelievable how strong and alert he is still! the dinner started from 6.30pm all the way till 11.30pm. man, do elderly know how to paaaartay! :)
The food was awesome! and it was a great night of meeting kongkong's friends, relatives and friends. So much catching up, so little time! Uncle gave a lovely speech on kongkong, pohpoh and bites of family memories.
Man, his speech made me miss my grandmum so much. She taught and loved me so much while she was around.
Couz gave an awesome speech on behalf of all the grandchildren and great grandchildren. He speech was on how kongkong has taught us so much, and how great a grandfather he is to us. My grandfather has undoubtedly taught each and everyone of us to always give back, work hard, and to keep peace wherever we go. great values i'd say. I'm blessed.
Its amazing how up-to-date kongster is with social issues, tech and so on! :) rock ooonz!
Kong kong was honoured by the indian society during the birthday bash. The tradition showed that the highest honour and respect was being given to my kongkong :) so sweet! and what a honour and memory!
Kongster then gave his speech, thanking everyone, advising others (since ppl keep asking how he's so healthy at his age) and so forth. man, did he crack up the crowd! :) us grandchildren said.. we could make kongster's quotes into bumper stickers n T-shirts. yes, it was THAT hillarious.
There were many performances and speeches throughout the night. Truckloads of laughter! Kongster's cake was so huge it was pretty ridiculous! :) thank you to secret recipe for the massive cake! :D yumz.
All in all, it was one fabulous night. We were super exhausted. but every memory made was worth the time and effort :) and, I thank God for my awesome kongkong :) <3

Its a beautiful thing to see friends have new fantastic adventures and experiences. :)
But its sad to see some friends who you thought would be close to you always, and be there no matter what, just forget you as their lives move on.
I guess what people say is true. Friends are temporary. They will always move on with their lives, and they are likely to forget you.
But there is always family, and few who are true friends, and those people, no matter where they are, or what their doing, they always make time and effort for you. <3

So personally my crazy semester is almost done! :D HAALLLEELUJAH. its definately been one non-stop hectic sem, but i must say.. I did enjoy myself and learned a whole lot of stuff! I've got no time to blog right now, but here are some shots from the community project my friends and I have did this sem :)
We were assigned to intervene at the PPR flats, where very low-income families stay. Its was pretty shocking i'd say seeing their living conditions. Pretty unsanitary :(
We chose to target the children (2-5yrs) to intervene on their nutrition and improve it.Did some data collection on the kids, and found out there were some malnourished. and many were picky eaters.
So we planned out a whole intervention programme, targetting various aspects.
- education on nutrition
- cooking healthy/overcome picky eater issues
We educated the families on these aspects! whee!
I was allocated picky eaters issues. man, was it hillarious. My BM had merosot-ed since i left high school. So i had major probs trying to write out my poster the day before intervention day! but speaking to the crowd wasn't that bad :) THANK GOD. haha. [ i apologized to the crowd for my possibly bad bm before i started speaking. HAHA] and the aunties were absolutely sweet helping me when i forgot how to say certain words! Gotta love em.
some goodies we bought for them :)
It was tons of fun. For me, it was great to see the joy on their faces and how much fun they were having from what we were doing for them :)

I've been traveling quiet a bit this past month. so i shall blog about those "adventures" later on. For now.. CHRISTMAS! :D:D:D
I swear, its one of my utter most fav seasons. Carols in the malls, pretty deco, all the love going around.. What's not to love about the season? :) hehee.
So this Christmas, church asked me and my lovely partner, Beatrice, to choreograph for our church musical. When they first asked me, I swear.. I almost shat in my pants. HAHA Debated it out.. hmmm, a new challenge to take on so.. why not? :)
and.. I'm glad I did! :D I got to know others better, closer to a few. Pushed my boundaries. Served God, blessed others, and it also made me feel very much at home. Loved it!
I'de like to say, I'm very proud of each and every dancer. You guys were such troopers through everything! and ya'll were fantastic!
On finale night, I swear after the opening dance, I screamed like a crazy proud mama in the audience (oh i pray the video recording didn't capture that). HAHA Cast and crew, job well done! :)
Christmas day was spent with familia :) while night was spent at Aaron's place! Lovely day of bonding and chilling out. haha ;)
Midst all the celebration, everything reminded me how much I've been blessed this year. Truly thankful. Loves! :) Hope ya'll had a great one too! Cheers!
