thankful Im Thankful for ...

Thanksgiving – not a celebration we have in our part of the world, but I thought to borrow the celebration just so we pause for a moment from the madness around us, and think about the things we have and are thankful for. Let me start.

  • I’m thankful for my health – not perhaps the healthiest person around (I still love my unhealthy foods – crisps and keropok lekor OMG! icon razz Im Thankful for ... ) but I try icon smile Im Thankful for ...
  • I’m thankful for disciplinarian parents – I may have hated it growing up and they are still very protective but I think I am what I am thanks to my growing up years. Although we are now closer and less parent-child, I know I’ll always be my parents’ daughter and they have my back every time.
  • I’m thankful for having a sister – Its a relationship that’s just different from any other familial ties. Maddening at times but otherwise one I’m thankful for having. Don’t tell her I said so icon razz Im Thankful for ...
  • I’m thankful for friends – friends with whom I can catch up with in 2 minutes despite not having seen them for years, friends I see often, friends with whom I get into scrapes with. Thankful for them all.
  • I’m thankful for BBM, Whatsapp and Facetime – isn’t technology wonderful? I’m closer to family and friends anywhere in the world than I can ever be.
  • I’m thankful for having a job – a little strange but true. I may complain sometimes but its a job and it keeps me in my bags and purchases and just sometimes, I get a nice thrill out of a job well done icon smile Im Thankful for ...

I’m thankful for perfume – without it, man! I’d really stink icon razz Im Thankful for ... My favourite scent du jour is Dior J’adore EDT I love how light and fresh it is, yet floral and subtle. I was not a fan of previous J’adore incarnations as I found it too strong but I love this one to itty bitty bits! I wear it almost everyday and it makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside… oh and makes me smell good too of course icon biggrin Im Thankful for ...

jadore2 Im Thankful for ...

I’m, of course, also thankful for all of you – without you reading my blog and your encouraging comments, I probably wouldn’t still be here today! 8)

Thank you, lovelies! Post #2221 FTW! icon biggrin Im Thankful for ...

What are you thankful for?

1. I’m thankful for all the breakfast prepared for me (even tho sometimes i may not like it) but I should be!

2. I’m thankful for my parents who always back me up (and dad who sometimes still gives me sponsorship & pocket money, yeay for that!)

3. I’m thankful for all the good friends I have

4. Last but not least, also thankful for a husband who doesn’t smack me when I keep changing my mind and my short-lived interests. LOL

I’m thankful for all of the above! (Except the sis bit since I don’t have siblings – so I’ll substitute that with I’m thankful for no sibling rivalry. Heh.) :P

Ah well can’t have it all and I’m actually quite glad we don’t have sibling rivalry – not in the most serious sense anyway.

1. A small break from work to recharge and rejuvenate
2. Massive coffee to get me through today
3. Technology (for making my life easier, keeping me in my job, keeping my curious mind active)
4. The humans surrounding me. Friends, family (sometimes I want to kill them and I am so thankful I’m on another continent)

Aww!! I’m thankful for all that you’ve listed, plus that us girls here have the luxury and flexibility in our lives to indulge in leisure, including beauty and cosmetics. I take it for granted sometimes that not everyone has that leeway.

Beautiful photos, btw! I love J’adore too!

Yay for J’Adore! And yes we should be thankful for being able to indulge in our little hobbies. Some people don’t have that luxury.

Ooohhhh somebody got flowerssss!!! ;)

I soooo agree with you on disciplinarian parents. My parents (esp. dad) were really strict with us so I never got to do anything fun growing up, but nowadays when I see rotten children throwing a fit and rolling on the floor when they don’t get their way, I’m thankful that I was brought up proper!! lol!

It’s my blog tradition to do a thanksgiving post, but my Thesis is kicking my butt right now, so none this year. Hmmm, this year, I’ll sum it up and just KISS by being thankful for everything I have! :D

And oh, I love J’Adore too! :D

LOL!! This was actually an old picture but thanks! :D I know what you mean. I had the typical Asian parent – strict, protective and not much fun but I think I did turn out better thanks to that and the sense of responsibility they instilled :)

I’m thankful for:
– My family, namely my parents and younger brother- They’ve been so supportive throughout and we’ve all grown so much together for the better. I’m proud of my family and how we’ve all turned out and I love them! :)
– My boyfriend- For all his love and support and for always being there for me :) And for teaching me not just about himself but also about myself.
– My pets- They bring so much joy into my life, even though they can sometimes drive me crazy! :P
– The people I’ve met- Whether or not they’ve turned into friends or foe, I believe that everyone that has crossed paths with us have something to teach us, and that we should learn from them.

My favourite perfume? I used to love Lancome Magnifique, but I’ve discovered Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh and I can say it’s knocked Magnifique off the pedestal. It’s my signature perfume for now :D

I am thankful for

1. My family which, by default, includes my best friend and boyfriend.

2. For being able to work with the rural poor for the past 2 years. It was what I always wanted to do and my job gave me the chance to travel all over Borneo. Every day is an adventure and my heart ached when I submitted my resignation, which leds to,

3. Being accepted for my Masters in Development Studies as I get to study peace keeping and conflict resolution, and be reunited with my boyfriend in Australia.

Glad you managed to fulfil what you’ve wanted to do. Few people know what they want to do much less be able to fulfil their dreams! All the best in your Masters! :D

I am thankful for:

^^ the boys (referring to my bf, my dog & my cat) – they keep me sane & grounded, although sometimes I’ll go insane when they’re naughty!

^^ beauty review like this (& the other readers feedback) which could save my time & wallet – considering that I’m a newbie in skincare/beauty stuff.

^^ the AFC channel which motivates me not to just make coffee in my kitchen, but to cook healthy food for myself & the boys. but I’m still lazy at cleaning the dishes >.<

^^ my neighbor who loves my dog as her own (she have 7 dogs at home!) that she feed him everyday.

I’m thankful for everything that’s happened to me ever since I started my makeup and beauty blog! Although there have been ups and downs, I’ve learnt a lot and made many like-minded friends whom I would never have known if not for the blog!
