Do you ever meet people; have a laid-back dialogue and wonder who it is you met, what kind of people they must be? Not in some romantic kinda way, just out of interest. Perhaps the point is that we all come into contact with so many people on a daily basis and somehow we never really get acquainted with any of them.

When I started blogging a year and a half ago, I'm not sure I would have just had a conversation with someone I didn’t know. I'm sure I would have smiled at someone but after that, I'm pretty sure there would have been silence. And if not, I'd have been wary with what I said, inspecting every word that came out of my mouth, terrified of being me...or too much of me nonetheless. I believe that being open, being me, has allowed me to become more at ease with who I am and what I have to say, in the real world. It’s what I've become aware of over the last year or so. And for that - the moments to share myself and the support I receive - I'm appreciative of.

It’s finally that time of year. Usually the first week of December marks the time to buy Christmas clothes and liberate the holiday decorations from their boxes. This weekend was an exception. We only had time to spread merriment by going through every possible square inch of Brigade road in search of my Christmas attire. And with the cold slowing showing up, it does seem like the holiday season at last.
I didn't have a chance to listen to much at all but I am rather proud of myself that I started playing Christmas music by Frank Sinatra, a collection I had acquired many moons ago. I'm a big fan of Christmas classics. Yup, I like me some old-school too. Let me tell you, they’re definitely worth owning.

And if this doesn't get you into the holiday spirit, nuthin' will. Happy Monday y’all!

Do you sometimes don't sleep the night; probably work a modest while and switch between watching movies and making tea?

Well, It's about 7:39 AM, and God knows why I went jogging this morning in my shorts and sweats. I went to the football field (yes!) and successfully attempted in running the perimeter about 6 times(taking breaks)...

The first thing I wanted to do was to check your blog and see what I had missed. Am either too sweet or you are the only hope to lighten my thoughts, with a lil' positivity and kickstart the day :)

So am sippin' hot special Assam tea and going through your blog one by one...thinking that I made an excellent choice by cooking pork last night.

PS. I wonder when we first met, what kind of conversation we had. :)

Thanks for comment Imcha. It brightened my day! It means alot to me that you look forward to reading my blog, regardless how it's just a nothing intellectual bunch of ramblings...

Yep. I too would like to know what we spoke about the first time we conversed. Talking to you was definitely not the easiest things to do... but once you eased up, there wasn't any stopping you. I'm glad, you never did!

I love the classics as well. Especially during Christmas.
