Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away.


Thank you for making me smile, again.
Thank you for reminding me that I'm special.
Thank you for showing me that there's more to the world than I know.

A Cakester Belief: Don't wait until it's too late to thank the special people in your life.

Summer is over.

Fact: Summer is coming to an end.

Back in April, I landed a (full-time) summer job (to be discussed in a future post) which I didn't really need since I don't plan on quitting my current part-time job any time soon. However, my parents had "asked" me (more like forced lol) to pay for my own tuition this year. I made an estimate of how many hours I'd have to work at min. wage to pay for tuition and let's just say I have many many many hours to go *sigh* Thank god I took summer school last year and only need to pay for 8 courses now instead of 10.


The job requires me to be CPR/First Aid certified and I took the 2-day course a couple weeks ago :) Aren't limbless dummies scary?!?!

So while my sister is counting down to her summer holiday, I'm counting down to the end of summer. ~ So long my last summer as a student ~

I'm fearless

Ray-Ban P

To me, fearless is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death. Fearless is falling madly in love again, even though you’ve been hurt before. Fearless is walking into your freshmen year of high school at fifteen. Fearless is getting back up and fighting for what you want over and over again… even though every time you’ve tried before, you’ve lost. It’s fearless to have faith that someday things will change. Fearless is having the courage to say goodbye to someone who only hurts you, even if you can’t breathe without them. I think it’s fearless to fall for your best friend, even though he’s in love with someone else. And when someone apologizes to you enough times for things they’ll never stop doing, I think it’s fearless to stop believing them. It’s fearless to say “you’re NOT sorry”, and walk away. I think loving someone despite what people think is fearless. I think allowing yourself to cry on the bathroom floor is fearless. Letting go is fearless. Then, moving on and being alright… That’s fearless too. But no matter what love throws at you, you have to believe in it. You have to believe in love stories and prince charmings and happily ever after. That’s why I write these songs. Because I think love is fearless.

Current Album: Adele - 21

My friend invited a couple of us over for dinner when the semester ended back in April. I was just expecting pizza or Chinese takeout but she made a friggin' 4-course meal from scratch! I'm a pretty good cook too if I must say so myself! My specialty is boiled water... in an automatic kettle. Chyeaaaa B)

First course: Soup.

It's not pumpkin soup. No, not carrot soup either. It's sweet potato soup!

Second course: Salad.

Celery, grapes, apple, poppy seeds, and yogurt as the dressing. Loved this salad! I didn't know yogurt can be used as a dressing! If you're in for a healthy salad, try this recipe!

Main course: Lasagna.

This post is clearly overdue since I cannot recall what was in this yummy lasagna. However, I do remember that my friend used eggplant and some green veggie. This recipe can definitely be modified to suit vegetarians/vegans :) The meal is still looking healthy right?


I think this was raspberry scone or something like that. And it was goooooddd!!!! Man.. I need to ask my friend for this recipe and make it myself sometime.
