Leap Year Proposal

According to an old Irish legend, or possibly history,  St Brigid struck a deal with St Patrick to allow women to propose - and not just the other way around - every four years.

Thanks to my foreigner colleague, he's the one telling me about this. In fact, all of us, the whole department.

Quite an interesting fact, right?

It was all started when this foreigner colleague of mine suddenly asking me whether  I'm going to propose my boyfie on this date. I was like, " Why, suddenly?". And ya, all the other department mate also went blur.

Then only my foreigner colleague realize that we had no clue at all - to what he's talking about. He started explaining and we end up google-ing it, just to find out that the tradition actually do exist.

My colleague was asking me that question earlier as because I am the prefect candidate to do it; given my age and that I'm in a relationship now.

Well, my answer is no - nope. I will not do it or even bring up the topic to my boyfie anymore. Not because woman are not suppose to propose or that is a guy task but for obvious reason, and yet a very personal one.

From this point ahead, you may think that I am indeed a selfish person, who only thinks of herself.

But, I have my reasons.

Guide me o Lord. Help me that I may find light in this dark feeling that I am experiencing now. Amen.

I pray for a stronger faith, Lord. To have faith in your timing.

Me and my haircut

Like,seriously? I wonder.

Hair is considered as one of woman's most treasured part in her image. Some women prefer to keep it long and some, simply short.

For some, when they have kept the long hair for quite sometime, to have it intervene, a woman would end up a month of thinking. 

Been there,done that. When I was in uni, I prefer to keep my hair long. Looks so sweet and girlish. Haha. I seldom go for hair saloon when I was there as I bet it will be expensive. Plus, I was afraid that I will not like the new hairstyle.

So, when I finished my study, I felt like the time has come for me to cut my hair short; marking the beginning of being a jobless person. Hehe. Well, I'm about to change my life,right? A transition from a student into a career women.

Since then, I've kept my hair short until 2014.  My brother is going to get married the following year, so I figured long hair would be super duper nice with a peach colored dress.Hahaha

Now, I'm back to simply short. I got another haircut right after my retreat. Am I about to change my life? I bet.For a better me and stronger Faith.

Renewed Faith

Currently, going through this.

I was having my personal issue since last year. I've been trying to find the solutions up until one time, I decided that I need to go to for a break, a retreat. To think back about it, it was not a coincidence. God has planned it for me.

Last weekend, I went for the Retret Penyembuhan Batin  at Kaingaran, Tambunan. It has been my ultimate desire to go here.  I'm a first timer here and before I went to this retreat, I've set my heart and mind that I would get the answers that I'm looking for.

Frankly speaking, I didn't really get my exact answers. But, God's grace is indeed amazing. I may not get the answers but God touch my heart in a different way, making me feel much calmer and less burden about this issue; to let God take over everything.

Thank you, God.
