How to Grow Up Your Shopping Habits in 10 Ways

How To Get Things Done in 10 Ways

In my long journey of adulting, I’ve noticed something: I get excited when I am able to make an “adult” purchase. I’m sure some of you know that feeling all too well, but man oh man, shopping for kitchenware or household objects is just so much more exciting than shopping for jewelry or purses. Yes, even I cannot believe I said that. Don’t worry, I’ll take it back at some point. But living on your own changes what you need/want to spend money on!

It’s the things that your parents always had and you never had to even think about where you would get one because they just always had one for you to use. Check out my “adult” purchases that I’ve made in an attempt to slowly grow up more.

One of those things that my parents always had and I always borrowed theirs every time…

Tangyuan (汤圆)

The Inspiration Shots

iPhoneOgraphy – 11 Feb 2016 (Day 42/366)

Tangyuan or tang yuan (simplified Chinese: 汤圆; traditional Chinese: 湯圓; pinyin: tāngyuán) is a Chinese food made from glutinous rice flour mixed with a small amount of water to form balls and is then cooked and served in boiling water. Tangyuan can be either small or large, and filled or unfilled. They are traditionally eaten during Yuanxiao or the Lantern Festival, but also served as a dessert on Chinese wedding day, Winter Solstice Festival (Chinese: 冬至; pinyin: Dōngzhì), and any occasions such as family reunion, because of a homophone for union (simplified Chinese: 团圆; traditional Chinese: 團圓; pinyin: tuányuán).

Historically, a number of different names were used to refer to tangyuan. During the Yongle era of the Ming Dynasty, the name was officially settled as yuanxiao (derived from the Yuanxiao Festival), which is used in northen China. This name literally means “first evening”…

I Said “YES” to the Dress!


Happiness overload. I said “yes” to the dress yesterday, the sixth of February, at the famous bridal paradise in New York City – Kleinfeld. Another cheek-hurting moment added to my memory reel of happy days. Walking through the tall, glass double doors was pretty much like walking into heaven on earth. A blanket of white. The most beautiful gowns in all different silhouettes, all floating like clouds. The experience was everything I ever imagined it to be. I cried – twice. Once, when the veil touched my shoulders in the fitting room and I experienced that “holy crap I’m a bride” moment. Second, when I was asked the question I’ve heard a million times before, yet never imagined would be directed towards me.

Olivia, are you saying “yes” to the dress?

A once in a lifetime experience

and I am so grateful for it.

Company is Love, Mission is Happiness, Vision is Care

Words dipped in Happiness

Falling is always painful. But if there is anything in this world which can make humans fall in it happily, it should be only one thing. It’s Love. – Jackie Jain

I am waiting for her. She didn’t came in time (she never comes on time anyway though).  But waiting for her is always a good feeling, not because she is away from me right now, but because she is somewhere on her way just to meet me. I am very excited. 2 years ago, we used to go out daily and have spent some quality time together then. But there are always some obstacles which grows with time. Work, has always been the dividing factor between us. Our love for each other is never the question. Our love was, and it is always at peaks, but we we are going through a phase where we are not able…
