You make decisions together wisely.
That is to say, Runkel doesn’t need his wife — and his wife doesn’t need him — to be a fully functioning person. When he hears people tell couples, “You are supposed to meet another’s needs,” he said, “that is the most horrific piece of advice I can imagine.”
Instead, Runkel said, you should want your partner, and vice versa.
It might sound like semantics — but this mental reframing allows you to take a much more reasonable approach to any romantic relationship.
It means, Runkel said, that you always need to be working on yourself — first to make sure you’re a happy and healthy individual, and second to make sure you’re a desirable partner.
“When was the last time you actually respected a needy person, much less found them attractive?” Runkel said.
What’s more, Runkel said, there will be times when you and your partner can’t fully meet each other’s needs. If one of you gets sick, for example, the other can only do their best at being caring and supportive.

Why are you Here for? Zzz…
Who wants to go New Zealand with me during August?
Not sure what to do to get out of boredom.
Recently bought fidget spinner in hoping to kick the fidgetness. HA.
Anyway, met up with a primary school bestie recently. She mentioned she has just started trading.
So I re-looked at some sites in case I am interested to learn. The only take away for the meetup is support and resistance based on the charts. But so far I could not find any good android apps. Her iphone app shows the 2 differences. Finance is always what I am weak in, haha.
Passed my probation. Round 1 presentation to managers stress was over.
Now Stressed at work.
Was expected to be involved in 2 POC sales demo.
Huge expectation i will say. Hope i will survived.
Thinking of starting something new on a side note. It will take time. Just spacing out and watching a new favorite k drama,

Its so fun the main 2 leads. The lady clique is also quite gum and epic. Tekboleh tahan.

Fav quote for self reminder (saw on forbes long ago)
“To me, courage is seeking out the broadest environment that you can influence.” Quote of the Day; Denise Karkos.
My love for cheese.
Started out when the craze for Donut Factory was back then in 2007.
Love the Spicy Cheese Donut!!
Wonder what spices and ingredients they used, else I wont mind re-making this great product to satisfy own craving.
Ever time, I will try to stop by a stall, in order to grab and go one of this. Till they discontinued it.
Haiyo, missing it. For the sake of memories 🙂
Ha, found another country has some delish pastry too!
There is a hype at changi airport, with pokemons.
Thus i managed to find 1 snorlax in T2 to selfie with. Keke.
31/12/2016 day 1
Nye walk around in hk, but the new fireworks was disappointing as there are too many ppl in the streets and we were stuck at the wrong areas with short buildings blocked. 10mins.
Haha jus absorb the atmosphere and countdown and squeeze with crowds hur!
Ate a super cheesy noodle with pork at TST. Super chewy nice!! Jus spam the alacarte meat. Yums.
1/1/2017 day 2
Am queuing for the Kam’s roast goose.
About 1 hour, since 12pm.
Met a hk friendly gonggong waiting for his grandson who study law in London. He know alot of hk n sg ppl there too.
They shared the story that the papa who own the 1st shop pass down to the 2 sons but they fought.
Original stall was taken over 2nd son. This kam’s is by the 1st son and he managed to get 1 michelin star.
Lol good to mingle around yeah. 🙂
Just bought body shop stuff on 9th.11.
And joined as member.
This i feel is quite worth, bundle of Drops of youth concentrate and moisturizer at $80 instead of usual $60ish each. And gotten toner at $20 less 20% discount wee!
Pro; the serum is Quickly absorbed and non-sticky, skin appears smoother, fresher and feels more supple. Pores look tightened and fine lines appear smoothed. Skin has a more healthy luminosity. promote skin cell renewal!
Oh wells to fight the pimple scarring since 3 years ago when i started working and not caring for face, body and health. And recently it got worst .
So i have started to read and uds what are the steps and what the differences between each facial product.
Here are some links .
P.S. all my products are not from same range so.. is super mix. using same range i heard is more effective as the products complements each other. and also keep 2 ranges interchangeably else they wont be effective if you keep using the same for long as ur skin gets used to it and it becomes not useful.
– Gentle cleansing milk / Loreal (very rare unless using makeup xD)
– Chia seed foam / face shop
– Pore care clay / ettusais (occasionally)
– Seaweed oil balance toner / body shop *new
– Shirojyun toner lotion / jp hada labo (like essence after toner)
– Drops of youth concentrate / body shop *new as ampoule
– Green tea seed serum / kr innisfree
– Mcgirly Eye activator / kr toocoolforschool (occasionally)
– moisurizer! Water bank gel cream / dfs laneige (dfs cheaper! or drops of youth cream *new yet to open)
– Eyelash tonic / jp DHC (occasionally)
– Teatree oil / body shop (always used to treat the bad pimples. Dry and kills bacterial, also can apply on mosquito bites)
*innisfree mask/sunblock/dr.jart+makeup as addon
Mainly gotten from Japan in Aug and Korea during Dec 2015 when i found this good to have products..
That’s all for what i found out while researching… no ugly girl only lazy girl /but yeah the korean regime is madness

Repost (cool it auto embeds the preview)
Be honest with yourself about what sparks you and take action on it. Don't worry about finding your one true "passion." That's too abstract of a concept to figure out logically. Instead, start by acting on the small things that excite you each day. – Get in the habit of recognizing and acting upon the small things that you feel drawn to. These things will lead you to the bigger, more meaningful things that you might define as your "passion" or "purpose." – This process works because excitement is an organizing and unifying energy. All excitement interconnected. – In other words, the "small" things that excite you or spark joy are connected to your bigger desires, even if you can’t see how. Even if they seem mundane, trivial or unrelated to your larger goals, the excitement tells you that they ARE connected. – Your physical mind does not have the capacity to know HOW they are connected, nor does it need to. That is the job of the subconscious mind. – Bottom line: Do not invalidate the things that excite you just because they seem trivial or because you can't see how they tie into your "big picture goals." It's not your job to know how it's all connected, it is your job to honor what excites you by ACTING upon it. #ThinkGrowProsper
Wise words to ponder

#amiready for all that comes?
Its coming to end of year soon.
My resolution for this year – to learn Ukulele did not realised.
As i only bought the ukulele right during New Year 2016, but did not really learn any songs or memorize the chords.
In this year, i have gone through a lot and also encountered many changes. Such that I am planning a few new stuff as well. Hope that all izz well and they will be successful by 2017!
Yipee. It sounds like a dream. But i hope to travel more often touching different parts of the earth. Learning new things, making new friends in the coming year and beyond. It is like visualing a Sensible Peak, but an enormous one.
Will still try to apply the Peak and Valley method, so that i can deal with a Valley more positively.
I am so glad that I will be attending a Global Workshop this thursday where i will get to meet so many people. Also invited for a networking dinner at night by another friend.
Friends. They are the ones who will sail through with you though you may have just met them, known them, or too cooked, but they trust you.
This past months have been eventful. It was rocky and new experiences which i have never done before. Thus i hope, i will have the energy to sail through the future.
Thanks for the special someone who believe in me, encouraging me when im down and up, being a partner in crime. At least I am still me at the end of the day. Glad that I have you.
At the end of the day, I am thankful that my blessings are bigger than my problems.
Been reading a book passed to me from Kim, finishing it up. A great read indeed.
Peaks and Valleys by Spencer johnson md
A great way to get to your next peak is to follow your sensible vision.
Imagine yourself enjoying your better future in such specific, belivable detail that you soon enjoy doing what takes you there!
The pain in a Valley can wake you up to a truth you have been ignoring.
Truth young man found, my valley is fear. Where he made fearful vision.
Avoid believing things are better than they really are when you are on a peak, or worse than they really are when you are in a Valley.
Make reality your friend.
A personal peak is a triumph over fear.
The purpose of the peak is to celebrate life and purpose of the valley is to learn about life.
What is the truth in this situation? How can we use the good that’s hidden in this bad time?
So where is the hidden good in this bad time that we can use to our advantage?
