Random Pics

In recent years, I've developed a new 'hobby' - taking snapshot of things that interest me. Not with any fantastic camera, just me and my Nokia camera phone. Here are some of the pics I thought are worth sharing.

One of my favourite hangout place, East Coast Park.

Another favourite place, the Vivo City.

I just love the sky.

I think this looks like a map.

Benjamin Sheares Bridge and the Singapore Flyer.

Views from the Flyer.

Grass Cutters at work.

Interesting sight in my neighbourhood.

My mum is so proud of her little 'vineyard'!

And lastly, a pic of myself! Hahaha. Have a great weekend! :D

'A Letter For You' Postcard

This afternoon, I just collected my first series of byrheea postcards together with my new business cards from the printer's. Fresh out of the oven, these postcards are packaged and ready to be sent out to the lucky winners first thing tomorrow. For those who have missed my Postcard Poll, you may checkout the post here.

A bit of sidetrack. I found these lovely hair clips while doing some shopping the other day and little Devon flashed across my mind. Devon, Emily's irresistibly adorable toddler is also a model for the clothes she make. Of course I am not exaggerating when I say Devon is a darling. Checkout her blog and tell me that you agree with me ;)

If you'd like to purchase this postcards set, they will be ready for sale in Etsy very soon. :D

I'll Still Love You More (by Trisha Yearwood)

Ask me how much you mean to me
And I wouldn't even know where to start
Ask if this love runs deep in me
And you won't find a deeper love in any heart
You could say you couldn't live one day without me
You could say all of your thoughts are about me
You could think no other love could be as strong
But you'd be wrong
You'd be wrong
If you say that you love me
More than anybody
Than anyone's ever been loved before
As much as you love me
Baby, I'll still love you
Baby, I'll still love you more
I'll still love you more

Ask me just what I'd do for you
And I'll tell you I would do anything
Ask if this heart beats true for you
And I'll show you a truer heart could never be
You could say there's not a star that you won't bring me
You could say there'll be no day that you won't need me
You could think no other love could last as long
But you'd be wrong
You'd be wrong
If you say that you love me
More than anybody
Than anyone's ever been loved before
As much as you love me
Baby, I'll still love you
Baby, I'll still love you more

And for every kiss
I'll kiss you back a hundred times
And for everything you do
I'll just do more
And for all the love you give
I'll give you so much back you'll see
Got so much love for you inside
If you say that you love me
More than anybody
Than anyone's ever been loved before
As much as you love me
Baby, I'll still love you
Baby, I'll still love you more
I'll still love you more

Indigo Children

Indigo Children. The first thought that popped into my mind when I came across this word some years ago was, 'A beautiful child with indigo blue eyes?' Well, not quite.

''The concept of the new children or Indigo children was first introduced by Kryon, Lee Carroll and Jan Tober. There have been many definitions of what Indigo children are. Usually, they are known as very old and highly evolved souls who have incarnated back on earth to help in raising the vibrations of the earth plane to assist in the shift in human consciousness.''

I have a few Indigo friends around me and it is interesting how sometimes our thinking and behavior outside the norm, held some similarities. To have a better idea what Indigo means, read this interview with one of my Indigo friend, Sylvia.

Itching to know if you might be an Indigo yourself? Take the quiz below ( to find out more. Points in bold are the ones that apply to me. I want to know if you are one of us too! :)

Indigo Quiz:

1. Do you feel out of place in today's world?

2. Do you perceive the world very differently from most of the people you know?

3. Do you possess a deep desire to help the world by contributing or being of service in some way?

4. Are you prone to insomnia, restless sleep, nightmares or difficulties falling asleep?

5. Do you have difficulty conforming to the ways and norms of society?

6. Do you feel frustration at the thought of leading an average life i.e. marriage, 2 children, picket white fence syndrome?

7. Are you intelligent although do not/did not necessarily achieve top grades at school?

8. Are you very creative in the areas of art, music, science and/or technology?

9. Do you have several on-going projects at any given time and often multi-task?

10. Do you have difficulty with authority: do you need to understand the reason behind what you're being asked to do?

11. Do you opt for leadership positions or working on your own rather than taking a team position?

12. Do you have enormous empathy for others, yet are intolerant of stupidity?

13. Have you had psychic experiences from an early age?

14. Do you have an intense interest in spiritual matters?

15. Do you have food or environmental sensitivities?

16. Do you feel frustrated even hopeless at the 'old' ways of doing things in education, politics or medicine?

17. Do you feel there is a better way of doing things but don't know how to make a difference in the world?

18. Do you have a strong intuition or knowledge of things that are unexplainable or do you often have a feeling that something is about to happen?

19. Do you feel annoyed when you are around superficial people?

20. Do you have an intense desire for truth and honesty?

21. Can you easily see through people's hidden agendas and facades?

22. Do you have an awareness of other dimensions and parallel realities?

* If you are an Indigo, you will typically answer Yes to all or at least 20 of the 22 questions. Alternatively, you might want to checkout this website to see if your child has these special gifts/ talents.

Before I end this topic, here is a documentary that touches on both scientific and theoretical aspects of it. Enjoy. :)

Oh Angel~

Another Angel added to my collection! Thank you for this lovely Angel calender all the way from Australia Sylvia. I don't think I will want to use it though. :p

The little Angels' corner in my room. ^.^

Looking for a huge Angel poster to replace this Final Fantasy poster that has been hanging in my room for the last decade. Any idea where can I get a nice Angel poster this big?
