would you hold it against me?

Current Song: Britney Spears - Hold It Against Me

From Leap Year (2010):
"Always kiss like it’s the first time, and the last time."

“May you never steal, lie or cheat. But if you have to steal, then steal away my sorrows. If you have to lie, then lie with me all the nights of our life. If you have to cheat, then cheat death because I don’t want to live a day without you.”


Eat, Pray, Love (2010):
"It's the same with relationships, I think. People always fall in love with the most perfect aspects of each other's personalities. Who wouldn't? Anybody can love the most wonderful parts of another person. But that's not the clever trick‎. The really clever trick is this: Can you accept the flaws? Can you look at your partner's faults honestly and say, 'I can work around that. I can make something out of that.'? Because the good stuff is always going to be there, and it's always going to be pretty and sparkly, but the crap underneath can ruin you."


"There's no greater power than the power to move on, to start over and leave it all behind."

"Love isn't finding a perfect person. It's seeing an imperfect person perfectly."

Love: a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker.


This Valentine's day, I'm in love... with life.


  1. Aww... I like the first quote. very seductive pictures in between. Haha. Happy Valentine's Day!

  2. Dang, I love the second quote there especially! Haven't seen the movie though, only saw the trailer and had concluded at the time that it was sort of weird and sketchy haha!
    I love the photos you took Helen! Surely it will attract the right person to come along and sweet you off your feet =D

  3. i always remember that quote from Eat, Pray, Love... that section was the part that really stuck with me! :P

  4. <3 Happy belated Valentine's Day!! Hope you had a good one :)
    Hehehe, no worries. It's only because I don't have that many classes I decided to start learning now. Think it will be good to at least have my licence by the time I graduate...

  5. =O There's no such thing as too much meat! Haha kidding ;) I also like eating the one with shrimp but Siu Mai will always trump it for me haha!
