I've been spending a lot of time on another project of mine.  One that will help me learn thing and hopefully open new doors for me.

But unfortunately that has meant little to no time on this blog.  So with some regret I'll be closing this blog down.

I just want to thank you all for visiting this blog.  Its been good fun and I've learnt a lot.  

Of course this is not goodbye.... you just have to find my other domain.  :)

Back to School

I'm back at school!!

Well - pseudo-school anyways :) I'm doing distance-education which is studying by correspondence.  The study in our house is my campus.  And it's an awesome campus! I can go to class in my PJ's, Lychi is my classmate and the kitchen is literally just around the corner! SWEET!!!!

I got my student card last week which is so HORRENDOUS I can't even bare looking at it.  *shiver*

But really, I'm very excited about studying again.

It sounds weird for me to say that considering how painful it was when I studied almost ten years ago.  But I think it makes a big difference being in industry for a while.  I think I have a better perspective on what's  important (or at least what's relevant) and I'm truly interested in the units I picked.

I'm absorbing information like sponge.   Well..  whether or not that knowledge is leaking out - that's another story.

Alrights - back to study.... soon lolz.

Lychi and Me

"A dog doesn't care if you're rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he'll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?" - John Grogan

Anh and I watched Marley and Me last night.

Its a pretty old movie (2008?) which stars Owen Wilson and Jennifer Aniston and tells the story of a young couple and their life after marriage with their dog Marley.

I've been wanting to watch this movie since I read that it makes grown men cry.

I guess I wanted to test my mettle..... see how manly I am.

And oh how the mighty fall :(

I failed miserably!  OMG! By the end of the movie, I've been reduced to a puddle of tears.  Anh and I were a complete mess with tears streaming down our faces.   It WAS SO SAD!!   I don't think I've been this sad in a movie EVER!!!

In my defence, I was crying because Anh started crying.  Seeing her sad makes me sad. I guess watching the movie with Lychi between us didn't help either.  I'm a sucker for sad dog movies now (talking dogs weird me out though).

Over the past few months, Anh and I have become very attached to Lychi.

She's just such a great dog.  Always happy to see us and always wanting to cuddle with us.  Regardless of the mess she creates (and time of morning she wakes us) we're so happy she's a part of us.  

Marley and Me wasn't all about the dog though.  It was also about growing up and decisions, the life after marriage. It was like a preview of life for Anh and myself.  Moving houses, changing jobs, children, a taste of things to come.  It struck me that many of these things will happen to us too, its all just a matter of when.

And whether it be happy or sad,  Lychi will be there, barking, gnawing, slobbering..
and growing with us.
