YIN & YANG

Life, like it or not, brings so much ironies.
Sometimes we're up, sometimes we're down.
Sometimes undeniably strong, sometimes just vulnerable.
With a blink of an eye, life can already shift 360 degrees.

But just as the sun and the moon signals every passing day,
So does life surprise us in every possible way.
Yes, things may happen in the moment we least expect it,
But it is in these moments that we learn to stand & get on our feet.


As black is to white, 
Happiness is to sadness,
Life is to death,
Yin & Yang too move in pairs.


Yes, life gives us a lot of love-hate relationships,
But believe it or not, opposites spice up every relationship.
We find joy in the absence and presence of someone,
Just like we find pain in something that's been lost then found.

YinYang exists in everything,
As there's always something complementary in the other.
As the saying goes: "No Man is an Island."
It certainly takes two interacting forces to strike a balance.



There will be days where you will experience the Yin,
Where life seems pretty tough, negative, dark & passive,
But there will certainly be Yan days too,
Where days would seem light, positive, bright and active.

Life shows us the duality of things.
It's more than just "It takes two to tango!"
Life is a give & take relationship,
There'll be that inner voice in us saying, "Now, take the leap!"

Life is a bumpy road,
A roller-coaster ride.
Just remember that no matter how high the tide,
It is the journey, not the destination that matters in every ride.

Cadbury Sweet Endings


It's Love at Every Bite!

Nothing could beat the summer-winter heat,
Except for something insanely sweet!
Yes! Heaven is no longer an unreachable dream,
With a daily dose of Cadbury with my Sweet Endings Team.


Cadbury knows that each and every one of us needs a break.
So when Cadbury offered me a trio date, 
I knew there and then...it's just a privilege I had to take!
So for those who missed it, this is for your sake.

My date with all Cadbury Barkadas was held at Shangri-la Mall.
From the (3) FREE Guardians of the Galaxy Tickets with Popcorn & Drinks,
To the Pick-a-Prize Booth with a chance to win an Ipad Mini,
My Cadbury experience definitely became a sweet ending!

Upon entering theater 2, 
Who could ever resist singing along with Cadbury's Jingle?
BUT word of caution, this is gonna be your Last Song Syndrome!
With this video running 30x on repeat, you & me are having LSS!

♫ Baby, baby, baby, baby, heaven sent you,
Maybe, Maybe, Maybe, we were meant to,
Be together, be forever, two little hearts go boom." 
No one left empty-handed,
'Cause there's surely a box of ultimate sweetness for everyone.
Thank you Cadbury & Nuffnang for this night,
It was definitely a Sweet Ending done right!

Taken from Nuffnang Facebook Page

A gift from my love with a love letter:
"Nothing like a box of chocolates to share with your Cadbury Barkada 
as a sweet ending for July. Thanks for coming. Enjoy!"
‘Shake, Rattle & Roll.’
‘Twist, Lick & Dunk.’
Styles of the past,
Which surely wouldn’t last!

Rip. Bite. MM-Melt. Enjoy.
My, my, this is definitely yummier than any other boy.
Oh, I just love my Cadbury...
With him, no heartaches, no heartbreaks, no worries.
My 4-Step Cadbury Ritual
Just RIP the exquisite royal purple and gold packaging.
Take a BITE into that tempting little thing.
Savor the MMM-Melt-in-my-mouth-moment.
And finally just ENJOY by repeating the ritual that's heaven-sent!


Marry me Cadbury,
Oh, you're my dairy milk,
You're my fruit & nut, roast almond & hazel nut.
All I'm just saying is I can’t imagine life without you!

You bet nothing else could make my day,
Except for something insanely sweet.
Oh! It’s not boys that make me fall in love day by day,
But chocolates that melt in my mouth every day.

A taste of heaven in every Cadbury bite,
You certainly won’t mind saying “whoops!”
To calories that pile up in loops,
Oh my, it’s just so damn good!


Just like falling for the charms of Fifty Shades of Grey's Christian Grey,
Who wouldn’t be obsessed with the luscious Cadbury day by day?  
Just a sight…just a taste…just the aroma...would make you lust,
Screaming, ‘Oooooh, Mmmmm, mmmorrre Cadbury, always a must!’


Oh Cadbury, your taste alone is my Sweet Ending!

'Cause time-off with my barkada is always well spent.

IT'S TIME: KITKAT BREAK!!!

Life waits for no one.
This is the truth of life.
Ready or not,
Life will continuously move on.

Sometimes though, life can be too exhausting,
Most especially when so much people rely on you.
Just look to the left, look to the right,
Oh! Most probably it'll be a busy, bustling sight!

Life just gives us endless possibilities & opportunities.
Things may happen in the least time we expect it,
Leaving us haphazardly stressed and depressed.
But in the end, it's all about knowing one's priorities.

Oh yes, I'm a dreamer and an achiever.
I love accomplishing things in the least possible time,
As life is as fragile as a glass.
Oh, time just waits and stops for no one.

My schedule is very hectic.
Sometimes it just makes me sick.
I'm not complaining that I'm a Jill of All Trades,
But sometimes, I just can't seem to multi-task anymore!

 So you may ask what's my medicine for sanity?
Chocolates---oh yes, happiness can be bought!
 There's a reason why stressed is desserts spelled backwards, right?
Just one bite of this creamy goodness always brings back my might!


Now, you know my secret formula to getting right back on track.
Oh yes, I want to unlock the skill of time management and multi-tasking,
So I can cross out more things in my bucket list.
Oh just having my well-deserved KitKat breaks never fails to fill me with bliss!


KitKat always makes me break the impossible.
Oh KitKat, it's always a pleasure to have a chitchat!
With you, I can always say hello to happiness,
And goodbye to stress and a whole lot of mess!
