1. 2015 So Far…

    February 23, 2015 by barffie

    We have 2 big trips this year – Melbourne in March and London in September.
    I am already thinking of what to wear :P

    Meanwhile here is a recent photo of our cats.

    New cardboard chaise lounge for the kitties…

    Lots of kite-flying!

    I lost this kite :( It was our favourite souvenir from Washington DC’s Smithsonian Air & Space Museum. Lousy kite-flyer is me!

    We went to the new Ukulele Movement to listen to Wan, a very talented ukulele player and singer. The weather was perfect that day for a sunset chillax session.

    It’s been lovely hanging out together with the one you love.


  2. Day Full of Blooms!

    February 14, 2015 by barffie

    Since 2014, we have been helping our friends at BloomRoom.Sg deliver flowers for Valentine’s Day. This year we did the same!

    The pros are plenty – we get to make some money out of it; it’s a fun activity driving around Singapore… especially to the places less travelled by us (we even ventured to Sentosa Cove!); we get to enjoy each others’ company for the whole day doing something more meaningful than expensive prix fixe dinners; and it helps that we both work very well together when it comes to planning, navigating and strategising our routes and delivery modus operandi.

    A few bouquets were not loaded up yet. Our boot was really full after that!

    The boy surprised me with a bouquet of absolutely stunning Ranunculus, David Austin Juliet Roses and Eustomas mixed in with the deliveries! It also helped that my friend Jaclyn knows my taste very well – I like them naturally elegant and rustic with oodles of wildflowers.

    Latte took an interest in the leafy bits so we had to hide the bouquet in the room where she can’t gnaw at them!

    I really really love the flowers! Actually it’s the first time he actually got me flowers after so many years together (for our wedding I ordered and picked them up myself!) so I’m really very happy :) The bouquet is just so beautiful.

    Bought a mason jar to store the flowers in. Just perfect.


  3. #IfBarfCanCook

    February 9, 2015 by barffie

    I’ve started cooking on my own recently and I think I’ve been doing a decent job at it. He eats the food with appreciation and sometimes even with admiration.

    For most people who know me, “I can’t cook to save my life” has been a self-deprecating mantra that I’ve been reciting for most of my adult life. The other mantra would be “I’m the sous chef and the clean up crew, he’s the actual chef”.

    I somehow found some courage and motivation to start trying some simple dishes as a form of self-improvement “project”, so here are some photos to share!

    Whee!


  4. Things That Make Me Smile

    Him: I love our silly banter and jokes and our discussions about movies and your company for meals and other activities, I love being around you and your silly antics, you make me happy in ways no one can.

    Me: Do you ever regret marrying me?
    Him: I’ll tell you in 20 years’ time.

    Him: I want to make more amazing memories with you.


  5. Reconnection

    January 29, 2015 by barffie

    Some people may think our relationship is flawless. It isn’t.

    Let’s face it.

    We do have our differences and disagreements.

    We have disappointed each other and we certainly disconnected from our relationship a couple of times.

    We’ve been together for over 10 years, after all.

    Terms like “Soul Mates” and “The One” gives a couple unnecessary pressure and seemingly insurmountable expectations of one another.

    Perhaps we did place that weight on our shoulders and it has weighed us down tremendously over the years.

    Perhaps we did take each other for granted and forgot to see the real person behind the harsh words and the hurt we dealt to each other.

    But love will guide the way.

    Our hearts will bring us back to where we needed to be.

    In the grand scheme of things, we are merely stardust.

    We are only here for a short while and all we needed is to be heard… loved… desired.

  7. 特別的人

    October 13, 2014 by barffie

    Just went to his concert on Saturday! I really like his music.

    方大同

    特別的人

    作詞:方大同
    作曲:方大同

    愛一個人或許要慷慨
    若只想要被愛 最後沒有了對白
    必須有你我的情真 不求計分的平等
    總有幸福有心疼 生命的起伏要認可

    懂一個人也許要忍耐
    要經過了意外 才瞭解所謂的愛
    今後的歲月 讓我們一起瞭解
    多少天長地久 有幾回細水長流

    我們是對方 特別的人
    奮不顧身 難捨難分 不是一般人的認真
    若只有一天 愛一個人
    讓那時間每一刻在倒退 生命中有萬事的可能
    你就是我要遇見的 特別的人

    懂一個人也許要忍耐
    要經過了意外 才瞭解所謂的愛
    今後的歲月 讓我們一起瞭解
    多少天長地久 有幾回細水長流

    我們是對方 特別的人
    奮不顧身 難捨難分 不是一般人的認真
    若只有一天 愛一個人
    讓那時間每一刻在倒退 生命中有萬事的可能
    你就是我要遇見的 特別的人

    有時候我們都會寂寞
    有時也會失敗 怕被淘汰 想去找一個明白
    而我曾經多次的等待未來
    你何時會來 人山人海 總有你的存在
    有你我的愛

    我們是對方 特別的人
    奮不顧身 難捨難分 不是一般人的認真
    若只有一天 愛一個人
    讓那時間每一刻在倒退 生命中有萬事的可能
    你就是我要遇見的 特別的人


  8. 9.

    September 29, 2014 by barffie

    Today marks the 9th year of our marriage, and the 10th year of our first date as a couple. It’s not a very long time, but we have been through ups and downs together; toured many new destinations together; ate food from all over together; had some great and not so great moments together. But we’re are still together.

    I’ve always said that I need you more than you need me. But maybe it’s because your love language differs from mine. I’m an insecure one, you see.

    One of your dominant love language is “acts of service”, while mine is “words of affirmation”. You don’t communicate love in a verbal manner, but instead you clean the cat litter. I don’t clean the cat litter as often but I know it means a lot to you that I do. I’ll try to clean it more often, ok?

    And you pick me up from work almost everyday… you don’t know how much it means to me to see your face smiling out at me from the car after a particularly tough day at work. Being with you keeps me quite grounded when my mind is all over the place.

    My personal love language – words of affirmation – as a talkative person, I vocalise every damn thought in my head. So I let you know when I am upset by not saying anything at all and I know that frustrates you. I am trying to fix that and not let my emotions override my actions as much, thank you for being patient with me all these years.

    I love you, Jeffwee.
