Christmas Candle

Candle is one of symbols of Christmas.
The Christians all over the world light a candle on Christmas Eve. Candle is essential part of Christmas because its light represents Jesus, who brings the light to our world.
The real light, which brighten every person.

Candle can bring light to fight the darkness.
Light always mastered the darkness and never be swallowed by darkness, no matter how small that light. Candle sacrificed itself in order to produce light. Without sacrifice, it’s hard to be light. Candles symbolize the courage to give light.

Happy Christmas!!

Christmas is comiiing! I like Christmas very much.. because of spirit that it had, because of its beautiful songs, because of delicious foods, and because Christmas is His day..

Here's one of my favorite Christmas song's lyric. I used to listen this song together with my best friends. Happy Christmas by Celine Dion.

So this is Christmas
And what have you done
Another year is over
A new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

Santa Claus?

St. Nicholas was born in 280 AD, in Patara, a city of Lycia, in Asia Minor. He became the gift giver of Myra. His gifts were given late at night, so that the gift giver's identity would remain a secret. St Nicholas was eventually named the patron saint of children, sailors, Russia and Greece.

St. Nicholas was a Christian priest, who later became a bishop. He was a rich person, and traveled the country helping people, giving gifts of money and other presents. St. Nicholas did not like to be seen when he gave away presents, so the children of the day were told to go to sleep quickly or he would not come! Nothing has changed and Santa Claus will not arrive this Christmas unless the children go to sleep early.

A famous story about St. Nicholas, is about a poor man who had no money to give to his three daughters on their wedding day. St Nick dropped bags of gold into the stockings which the girls had left to dry by the fire. The sisters found the gold and ever since, children have hung up stockings on Christmas Eve hoping that they will be filled with presents by Christmas morning.

sad love story.. [part 4]


Honk ~ HOnk ~
with a loud honk, a big truck was heading towards him.

"jin! Move! Move away!!" I shouted.
But he didn't hear me, he squatted down and picked up the doll...




HONK!
"Booomm!!" that sound, so terrifying.

that's how he went away from me. that's how he went away without even opening his eyes to say one word to me.

after that day, I had to go through everyday with guiltiness and sadness of losing him.. and after I spend two months like a crazy person, I took out the dolls. those were the only gifts he left me since the day we were started going out.

I remembered the day I spent with him and started to count the days..when we were in love.. T__T
"one.. two.. three.. "

that's how I began...
"four hundred and eighty four.. four hundred and eighty five.."
it all ended with 485 dolls. then I started to cry again, with a doll in my arm..

I hugged it tightly. then suddenly..
"I love you ~ I love you ~ "
I dropped the doll, shocked.

"I...love...you??" I picked up the dolls and press its stomach.
"I love you ~ I love you ~ "

It can't be!! I pressed all the dolls' stomach as it piled on the side.
"I love you ~ "
"I love you ~ "
"I love you ~ " those words came out nonstop.

I.. love you..
Why didn't I realize that.. That his heart was always by my side, protecting me. Why didn't I realize that he love me this much...
I took out the doll under the bed and pressed its stomach..this was the last doll, the one fell on the road. It had his blood on it.

the voice came out.. the one that I was missing so much..
"Jo.. do you know what today is?
we have been loving each other for 486 days. I couldn't say I love you.. Um.. since I was too shy..
If you forgive me and take this doll, I will say that I love you.. everyday.. till I die.. Jo, I love you.."

tears came flowing out of me. why? why?? I asked God, why do I only know about all this now? he can't be by my side, but he loved me until his last minute...



for that reason, to me.. it became courage to live a beautiful life..

It's better to lose your pride with someone you love.. rather than lose someone that you love with your useless pride..


-the end-

sad love story.. [part 3]

"wait.."
"you have something to say?"
"tell me, tell me you love me.."
"what?!"
"tell me.."
i put my pathetic self behind and clung into him. but he just said simple cold words and left.
"I don't want to say.. that I love someone so easily. if you are desperate to hear it, then find someone else."
that was what he said. then he ran off. my legs felt numb..and I collapsed to the ground. he didn't want to say it easily. how could he.. I felt that.. maybe he is not the right guy for me..

after that day, I stranded myself at home crying, just crying. he didn't call me, although I was waiting. he just continued handing me a little doll every morning outside my house. that's how those dolls piled up in my room..
after a month, I got myself and went to school. but what made the pain resurface was that..

October 20, 2010

sad love story.. [part 2]

"um, Jin, I.."
"what, don't drag, just say.."
"I love you"
"...you...um, just take this doll and go home."

that's how he ignored my 'three words' and handed me a doll. then he dissapeared, like he was running away. the dolls I received from him everyday, filled my room..one by one. there were many..


then one day come. my 15th years old birthday. when I got up in the morning, I pictured a birthday party with him, and stranded myself in my room, waiting for his call.

but, lunch passed, dinner passed.. and soon the sky was dark.. he still didn't call... it was already tiring to look at the phone anymore. then around 2 am in the morning, he suddenly called me and woke up me from my sleep. he told me to come out of the house. still, I felt joy and I ran out happily..

"Jin.."
"here, take this..."
again, he handed me a little doll.
"what's this?"
"I didn't give it to you yesterday, so I am giving it to you now.. I'm going home now, bye."

"wait, wait! do you know what today is?"
"today? huh?"

I felt so sad, I thought he would remember my birthday. he turned around and walking away like nothing had happened. then I shouted...

sad love story.. [part 1]

[ one of my best friends want to read this story.. so I post it to page one again. please enjoy ~ ]

i have a boyfriend who grow up with me. his name is Jin.

i always thought of him as a friend until last year, when we went to a trip from a club. i found that i fell in love with him.
before that trip was over, i took a step and confessed my love for him.
and soon, we became a pair of lovers. but we love each other in different way.
i always concentrated on him only, but to him, maybe i was just another girl..


"Jin, do you want to watch a movie?" i asked.
"i can't"
"why? do you need to study at home?" i felt disappointment grabbing me.
"no.. i'm going to meet a friend.."

he always like that. he met girls in front of me like it was nothing.
the word 'love' only came out from my mouth. since i know him, i had never heard him say 'i love you' before. to us, there weren't any anniversary at all. he didn't say anything from the first day and it continued until 100 days.. 200 days..

everyday, before we say goodbye, he would just hand me a doll. everyday.. without fail. i don't know why.. till one day..

A Puppy for Me

A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell. He painted a sign advertising the pups and set about Nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he Felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the Eyes of a little boy.
Mister," he said, "I want to buy one of your puppies."
"Well," said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, "these puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money."
The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. "I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?"
"Sure," said the farmer.

An Ant Philosophy

ANTS NEVER OUT:
If they’re headed somewhere and you try to stop them, they’ll look for another way.
They’ll climb over, they’ll climb under, they’ll climb around. They keep looking for another way.

They never quit looking for a way to get where you’re supposed to go.

ANTS THINK WINTER ALL SUMMER:
You can’t be so na├»ve as think summer will last forever.
So ants are gathering their winter food in the middle of summer.
You've got to think rocks as you enjoy sand and sun.

So, It is important to be realistic. Think ahead.

Pencil Parable

In the beginning, the Pencil Maker spoke to the pencil saying,

"there are five things you need to know before I send you out into the world. Always remember them and you will become the best pencil you can be."

First,
You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in someone's hand.
Second,
You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but this is required if you are to become a better pencil.
Third,
You have the ability to correct any mistakes you might make
Fourth,
the most important part of you will always be what's inside
Fifth,
no matter what the condition, you must continue to write. You must always leave a clear, legible mark no matter how difficult the situation.

the pencil understood, promising to remember, and went into the box fully understanding its maker's purpose.

Excellent Bathroom

I wish that I could have my own bathtub at home, because I love to have some kinds of refreshing bath sessions with my favorite aromatherapy on the tub after a long day at work. But that would only possible to be done if I have some kinds of excellent bathroom. I don’t have a tub in my bathroom now, so I can’t get a nice bath at all.

My best friend knew about my problem, and she kindly gave me a link to her favorite Bathroom Suites online store. I browsed this site this morning, and I really love their products!

They have wide range of baths, showers and tiles for bathrooms, not to mention bathroom mirrors, taps, shower enclosures, shower trays, toilet seats and wash basins, among others. And they even had a great collection of Jacuzzi which will enable us to choose our desired design and texture.

Another excellent thing about them is we have an option to track your order through their tracking system as well as we have a full control to where we want to deliver our ordered items.
Let’s visit the website first to see if we could find the bathroom suite we need that suitable and within our budget.

Suddenly, her eyes fixed on Camellias in the corner of bazaar. Those flowers were beautiful, full bloomed and pure white. These Camellias reminded her about flowers on her wedding. Without any doubts she bought a bundle and brought it home.

cocoon

A man found a cocoon of a butterfly. One day a small opening appeared. He sat and watched the butterfly for several hours as it struggled to force its body through that little hole. Then it seemed to stop making any progress. It appeared as if it had gotten as far as it could, and it could go no further.

So the man decided to help the butterfly. He took a pair of scissors and snipped off the remaining bit of the cocoon.

The butterfly then emerged easily.

For Our Security

Home security is more important thing for all the people. It is a common need to have ourself, our family members and also our home keep safe. It is very important to protect our home and family. Every day, all the people must go to their office or school, or somewhere else else. For that we should leaves our home and family members there.

With the street opened, more people and vehicles can pass through and these days we cannot take our security for granted as well as of our property from burglars and robbers. And also, do you have to leave your child under the supervision of a babysitter? How can you know your babysitter take care of your child properly or not?

The solution is to use
Hidden Camera. With hidden cameras you can watch all the activity around the existing house.

Noel's Words

"... I know, life was something very valuable.
At least if still alive, we still could try to fix anything that we deem wrong.
We can still feel ... everything, even if that pain and despair ...
If we're dead, "

Noel smiled faintly,
"... our time to try is over. "




these words is taken from one of my favorite stories, a fantasy story about people lived at the world of Ragnarok. Noel is one of the main character .. ^^

forget it

Forget the times that he walked by..

Forget the times he made you cry..

Forget the times he spoke your name..

Remember now, you're not the same.

Forget the time he held your hand..

Forget the sweet things if you can..

Forget the times, and don't pretend..

Remember now, he's just your friend.


July 06, 2010

would you?

If I hugged you,
would you never let go?

If I kissed you,
would you cherish that moment?

If I reached for your hand,
would you take mine gently?

If I needed a shoulder,
would you let me cry on yours?

If I needed to talk,
would you really listen?

If I needed to scream,
would you do it with me?

If I needed to go,
would you come with me?

If I fell for you,
would you catch me?
or just let me hit the pavement?

with our own feet

it would be very nice ..
if we could live
without making mistakes
but, it's .. impossible

fails, slipped ..
lost, make mistakes .
even then, little by little,
step by step,
we must move forward
with our own feet
though covered with wounds ..
someday, we'll arrive to a place, certainly.
... we'll reach a person

while continuing to pray like that
come on .. start our first step!

He knows

when not even a single person understand your feelings, your condition, and your heart .. There is one person who understands.

when not even a single person to understand the meaning of your tears, the look on your face and how tired you stepped, there is one person who knows it all.

at the time everyone felt far and there's no one for you when you fall ..
There is one person who is always present in your side and even sustain you.

do you know? Jesus always there to understand you, accompany you, count your tears and sustain you when you fall.

you need only a heart that would seek to feel His presence at any time. =)

I've Learned


I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them.

I've learned that no matter how much I care some people just don't care back.

I've learned that just because someone doesn't love you the way you want them to doesn't mean they don't love you with all they have.

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and only seconds to destroy it.

I've learned that it's not what you have in your life, but whom you have in your life that counts.

I've learned that our background and circumstances may have influenced who we are, but we are responsible for who we become.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, no matter how we feel.

I've learned that either you control your attitude or it controls you.

I've learned that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.

I've learned that maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had and what you've learned from them and less to do with how many birthdays you’ve celebrated.

I've learned that two people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.

I've learned that no matter how good a friend is, they're going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.

I've learned that it isn't always enough to be forgiven by others. Sometimes you have to learn to forgive yourself.

I've learned that just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And, just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do.

I’ve learned that no matter how bad your heart is broken the world doesn’t stop for your grief.

I’ve learned that no matter how you try to protect your children, they will eventually get hurt, and you will hurt in the process.

I've learned that you should never tell a child their dreams are unlikely or outlandish. Few things are more humiliating, and what a tragedy it would be if they believed it.

I've learned that heroes are people who do what has to be done when it needs to be done, regardless of the consequences.

I’ve learned that you can keep going long after you can’t.

his big shoes


It was an unseasonably hot day. Everybody it seemed, was looking for some kind of relief, so an ice cream store was a natural place to stop.

A little girl, clutching her money tightly, entered the store. Before she could say a word, the store clerk sharply told her to get outside and read the sign on the door, and stay out until she put on some shoes. She left slowly, and a big man followed her out of the store.

He watched as she stood in front of the store and read the sign: "No Bare Feet." Tears started rolling down her cheeks as she turned and started to walked away.

Just then the big man called to her. Sitting down on the curb, he took off his size-12 shoes, and set them in front of the girl saying, "Here, you won't be able to walk in these, but if you sort of slide along, you can get your ice cream cone."

Then he lifted the little girl up and set her feet into the shoes. "Take your time," he said, "I get tired of moving them around, and it'll feel good to just sit here and eat my ice cream."

The shining eyes of the little girl could not be missed as she shuffled up to the counter and ordered her ice cream cone.

He was a big man, all right. Big belly, big shoes, but most of all, he had a big heart.

call me ♥

If one day you feel sad ...
call me, I can't promise to make you laugh,
but at least you can share your grief
with me ...

If one day you want to go far ..
Do not ever hesitate to call me..
I do not promise I will stop you, but at least
I can go with you ..

If one day you can not tell your problems
to someone else ...
call me too, and I'll promise to silence,
like a wall ..

But ...
If one day you call me
and I do not heed you..
Please ....
Come see me, because maybe I need you ...

Your Call - Secondhand Serenade

first time I heard this song .. he was by my side .. and somehow, that words that has been sung by them seeped into the deepest part of my heart ..

here is the lyrics ..

Waiting for your call, I'm sick, call I'm angry
call I'm desperate for your voice
Listening to the song we used to sing
In the car, do you remember
Butterfly, Early Summer
It's playing on repeat, Just like when we would meet
Like when we would meet

Cause I was born to tell you I love you
and I am torn to do what I have to, to make you mine
Stay with me tonight

Stripped and polished, I am new, I am fresh
I am feeling so ambitious, you and me, flesh to flesh
Cause every breath that you will take
when you are sitting next to me
will bring life into my deepest hopes, What's your fantasy?
(What's your, what's your, what's your...)

Cause I was born to tell you I love you
and I am torn to do what I have to, to make you mine
Stay with me tonight

And I'm tired of being all alone, and this solitary moment makes me want to come back home
x4
(I know everything you wanted isn't anything you have)

Cause I was born to tell you I love you
and I am torn to do what I have to, to make you mine
Stay with me tonight

Cause I was born to tell you I love you
and I am torn to do what I have to, to make you mine
Stay with me tonight

an empty box


The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy."

The man was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found out the box was empty. He yelled at her, stating, "Don't you know, when you give someone a present, there is supposed to be something inside? The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and cried, "Oh, Daddy, it's not empty at all. I blew kisses into the box. They're all for you, Daddy."

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness.

Only a short time later, an accident took the life of the child. It is also told that her father kept that gold box by his bed for many years and, whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, each one of us, as humans beings, have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses... from our children, family members, friends, and God. There is simply no other possession, anyone could hold, more precious than this.

Never afraid to love


Learn to love the people who are with you at present.
Forget the people in the past and thank them for hurting you,
which led you to love the people you have right now.

When you love someone, you’ll do crazy things you
can’t explain, you’ll deny the truth and believe in lies.
When you love someone, you sacrifice,give everything
you’ve got and don’t think twice.

You risk it all no matter what.

Everything in life is temporary because everything
changes. That is why it takes courage to love,
knowing it might end anytime…having faith will make it last.

Friends are not the one who laugh when you laugh
and cry when you cry. They are the ones who
make you laugh and stop you from crying.

Love is the feeling we fall in and out of, and every
time we fall off, we learn to hold on tighter…hoping
that next time, we may never have to let go.

They say when love knocks at your door, open it.
But do you know that sometimes love enters
through the back door and before you begin to
notice it, it’s on it’s way out.

Have you ever loved only to let it go?..

Have you ever hated someone and loved him so?..
Have you ever missed someone so bad it made you cry?..
Have you ever seen someone left alone without knowing why? ..

True: Lucky is the man who wins the first love of a
woman but luckier is the woman who wins the lastlove of a man.

Love is not the right word to say when you feel
guilty nor the right word to say when you like a
person but love really matters when we share our
thoughts, our minds, and our hearts…

Life has a way of changing things but not the joy
that friendship brings, for friendship is like the
shining moon, makes each night a brighter one.

Love is not for beauty or color of the skin, but for
a heart that is loyal within, for beauty fades and the
skin would grow old but a heart that is loyal will never turn cold.

If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your
heart, forgive them for they have helped you learn
about trust and the importance of being cautious to
whom you open your heart.

A love is easy to feel, so hard to explain; so easy
to get, so hard to let go; so easy to spell, so hard
to define…and yet everyone is still taking the risk.

That’s love !

We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and
when we find someone whose weirdness is
compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall
in love in mutual weirdness and call it LOVE!

Never be afraid to fall in love. It may hurt a lot,
it may give you aches and pain, but if you don’t
follow your heart; in the end you will cry even more
for not giving love a chance.

Don’t run ahead of God. Let Him direct your steps.
He has plans and He has His time. God’s clock is
never one minute early nor one minute late. It
always strikes right on time.

If someone loves you, love them back not only
because they love you, but also because they are
teaching you to love and opening your heart and
eyes to things you have never seen or felt without them.

The past is meant to be used as a tool for the
future. Bad experiences indeed make you bitter
but the lessons learned should make you better.

On letting go: it hurts to see someone you love
happy with somebody else; but wouldn’t it hurt you
more to see that person unhappy…with you?

When you find arms that will hold you at your
weakest, eyes that will see you at your ugliest,
lips that will kiss you in both instances, and a

my favorite game lately

Well .. I must say that I'm a bit lazy to take care of the blog lately.. This is all because a new game that my friends introduced to me. The game I mentioned is Seal Online.

Seal Online is an animated fantasy game with an interesting graphic style. Unlike other Asian games, players in Seal Online have the option to select their first class during character creation but can opt to start as a beginner to try the game out before making a class choice at level 10. Similarly, players are given three starting town choices with one being a newbie town. Seal Online isn’t a revolutinary MMORPG but has many unique features and more than an average amount of starting classes.
The classes are:

Beginner - This choice is for those who are uncertain of what class they want to play. Beginners can experience the game freely until level 10 at which time they can either make the first class change or continue to play as jobless Vegabonds, an ill advised choice.
Knight - Knights have the highest defense and make the best tank class. They use one handed swords and have a hard time leveling alone during the early stages. The most important stats for a Knight are strength and agility and some vitality.
Warrior - The offensive melee class, Warriors use two handed swords to deal high damage. Their most important stats are strength and agility.
Magician - Masters of offensive spells. Magicians have low defense but make up for it with powerful long ranged attacks. Their most important stats are intelligence and wisdom.
Cleric - Cleric are a supportive class with healing and buffing spells but are also capable melee fighters. Stats that are important to cleric include strength, intelligence, and wisdom.
Clown - The rogues of Seal Online. Clowns use daggers or throwing weapons and prefer speed over brute force. Clowns rely on agility, strength and intelligence.
Craftsman - The merchant class that can create powerful equipment. Craftsman protect themselves with large mallets if required. Their primary stats are luck for crafting and strength for increased damage.

Each class has two second class options available after reaching level 150. The level cap in Seal Online is over 200 so there is plenty of grinding to be done!
I played Cleric .. and I’m just 95 now .. T _ T

Eagles & Storm

Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks?
The eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits, it sets its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages below, the eagle is soaring above it.

The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm.
When the storms of life come upon us - and all of us will experience them - we can rise above them by setting our minds and our belief toward God. The storms do not have to overcome us. We can allow God's power to lift us above them.

God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that bring sickness, tragedy, failure and disappointment in our lives. We can soar above the storm.

Remember, it is not the burdens of life that weight us down, it is how we handle them.

" never give up!! "

Reasons

Once a lady when having a conversation with her lover, asked:

Lady : Why do you like me..? Why do you love me?

Man : I can t tell the reason.. but I really like you..

Lady : You can t even tell me the reason... how can you say you like me? How can you say you love me?

Man : I really don t know the reason, but I can prove that I loveU.

Lady : Proof? No! I want you to tell me the reason. My friend's boyfriend can tell her why he loves her but not you!

Man : Ok..ok!!! Erm...
because you are beautiful,

because your voice is sweet,

because you are caring,

because you are loving,

because you are thoughtful,

because of your smile,

because of your every movements.

The lady felt very satisfied with the man s answer.

Unfortunately, a few days later, the Lady met with an accident
and went in comma.

The Guy then placed a letter by her side, and here is the
content:

Darling,

Because of your sweet voice that I love you...

Now can you talk? No! Therefore I cannot love you.

Because of your care and concern that I like you..

Now that you cannot show them, therefore I cannot love you.

Because of your smile,

because of your every movements that I love you..

Now can you smile? Now can you move?

No, therefore I cannot love you...

If love needs a reason, like now,

There is no reason for me to love you anymore.

Does love need a reason? NO!

Therefore, I still love you...

to my friends ..

Being happy ..

Is sharing life with a friend,

Sharing the days that return not again;

Is flying high and free,

Glinding over the open sea..

Is dreaming on a lovely spring day,

Letting the hours just flow away;

Is hugging a puppy so small,

Not caring about anything else at all.

Is having fun with you each day,

Helping people in every possible way;

Is sharing, loving & giving,

And it is having the pleasure of Living..

Truffles for Valentine's Day!

Hey.. do you guys already have a plan for giving gifts for your beloved people? =) maybe a card, chocolate cake, flowers, or.. maybe truffles?? yea.. my beloved is a coffee-lover, so i decided to give him truffles with coffee sensation ^^

here's the ingredients:
7 oz (200 g) milk chocolate
2 oz (60 ml) strong hot coffee, preferably espresso
4 oz (110 g) dark semisweet chocolate (45-60% cocoa)

and .. this is how we make it:

1. Break the milk chocolate into small pieces and melt with coffee over hot water.
2. Whisk gently until the mixture is smooth. Let cool in the refrigerator overnight covered by plastic wrap.
3. Scoop a small tablespoon of chocolate mixture and roll the truffle balls in your hands; be careful to avoid melting the balls. The size (diameter) should be about 1 inch (2.5 cm). Alternatively, shape the truffles by using a melon baller.
4. Cool them in the refrigerator before coating with melted dark chocolate.
5. Melt the dark chocolate over hot water and cool the melted chocolate to 95 degrees F (35 degrees C) or less but do not let the mixture harden.
6. Coat the cold truffle balls by rolling them rapidly in the melted chocolate using a fork and a teaspoon.
7. Place the truffles on a cookie sheet and put in the fridge until the chocolate coating is hard.
8. The truffles should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Take them out of the fridge approximately two hours before serving.



hmmmm .. yummy! i hope he will like this.. =)

hatred

someday, a teacher of kindergarten held a 'game' for her students.
the teacher told each child to bring a plastic bag with potatoes within. they must named each potatoes with the name of people who they hate. so, the number of potato is not determined. it depends on the number of people you hate.

On the agreed day each student brought the potatoes in a plastic bag. They brought 2, 3 or even 5. As their teacher ordered each potato in accordance named names of people they hate.

the students must bring that potatoes wherever they go, even to the toilet, for a week ahead.
day by day, those potatoes began to rot. children start to complain, especially those who carrying 4 or 5 potatoes. the potatoes were heavy and smelled very bad.

finally, one though week passed. all children were very relieved.

teacher: "how it feel to bring a bag of potatoes for a week?"

then all of student start to complaining about the rotten potatoes and how heavy they are.
then the teacher explained what the meaning of the 'game' they did.

teacher: "such like that is the hatred which always we carry when we can't forgive others. it was very uncomfortable carrying rotten potatoes wherever we go. it just for a week.. how will it be if we carrying hatred for a lifetime?"

Therefore let's learn to forgive each other.. because by forgiving we can feel peace. it is difficult, we know that. but we can do it! ^^

Moving

I was sitting and staring at my text books to deal with my math test ahead, when a thought crossed my mind.. this is kinda boring here. Facing same activities from day to day.. nothing special. Maybe it will be better if I get move to somewhere else. Get a new atmosphere, start a new adventure ~

Then I surfed the internet, and I found that get moved is not easy. It might be exciting, but also stressing. It is not just about relocating our belongings, but there is a lot to think about and even more to do. As exciting as it is, it can also full of worries. Hmmm.. maybe some of you are facing the same problem?

Afterward, I found one site that can help us organize our removals. They are Humboldt. With Humboldt on the job, you can sit back and relax, knowing you’re in good hands.

Humboldt is the oldest, most experienced Boston Moving Company in Massachusetts. Their team of professional movers manage local and International moving necessity. From planning to employee relocation services or even car shipping, they're a mover that wise customers choose.
So, at their hands, we have no more worries. Relax, and get moving! ^^

Potato Farmer

Potato farmer was sent to to prison just at time when he should have been digging the ground for planting the new crop of potatoes.
He knew that his wife would not be strong enough to do the digging by herself, but that she could manage to do the planting,
and he also knew that he did not have any friends or neighbors who would be willing to do the digging for him.
So he wrote a letter to his wife which said “Please do not dig the potato field. I hide the money and the gun there.”
Ten days later, he got a letter from his wife. It said, “I think somebody is reading your letter before they go out of prison. Some policeman arrived here two days ago and dug up the whole field. What shall I do now?”

The prisoner wrote back at once. “Plant the potatoes, of course!”

Right Here Waiting

Oceans apart day after day
And I slowly go insane
I hear your voice on the line
But it doesn't stop the pain

If I see you next to never
How can we say forever

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

I took for granted, all the times
That I though would last somehow
I hear the laughter, I taste the tears
But I can't get near you now

Oh, can't you see it baby
You've got me goin' Crazy

Wherever you go
Whatever you do
I will be right here waiting for you
Whatever it takes
Or how my heart breaks
I will be right here waiting for you

Love & Time

Once upon a time, there was an island where all the feelings lived: Happiness, Sadness, Knowledge, and all of the others, including Love. One day it was announced to the feelings that the island would sink, so all constructed boats and left. Except for Love.

Love was the only one who stayed. Love wanted to hold out until the last possible moment.

When the island had almost sunk, Love decided to ask for help.

Richness was passing by Love in a grand boat. Love said,
"Richness, can you take me with you?"
Richness answered, "No, I can't. There is a lot of gold and silver in my boat. There is no place here for you."

Love decided to ask Vanity who was also passing by in a beautiful vessel. "Vanity, please help me!"
"I can't help you, Love. You are all wet and might damage my boat," Vanity answered.

Sadness was close by so Love asked, "Sadness, let me go with you."
"Oh . . . Love, I am so sad that I need to be by myself!"

Happiness passed by Love, too, but she was so happy that she did not even hear when Love called her.

Suddenly, there was a voice, "Come, Love, I will take you." It was an elder. So blessed and overjoyed, Love even forgot to ask the elder where they were going. When they arrived at dry land, the elder went her own way. Realizing how much was owed the elder,

Love asked Knowledge, another elder, "Who Helped me?"
"It was Time," Knowledge answered.
"Time?" asked Love. "But why did Time help me?"
Knowledge smiled with deep wisdom and answered, "Because only Time is capable of understanding how valuable Love is."

Sand and Stone


A story tells that two friends were walking through the desert. During some point of the journey they had an argument, and one friend slapped the other one in the face. The one who got slapped was hurt, but without saying anything, wrote in the sand: "TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SLAPPED ME IN THE FACE."

They kept on walking until they found an oasis, where they decided to take a bath. The one, who had been slapped, got stuck in the mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him. After the friend recovered from the near drowning, he wrote on a stone: "TODAY MY BEST FRIEND SAVED MY LIFE."

The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now, you write on a stone, why?"

The other friend replied: "When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it away. But, when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it."

slot machines

One of the favorite casino games is slot machines. Just for your info, slot machines are known as fruit machines in U.K. and poker machine is Australia. Since they are very easy to operate and user friendly these machines are a big hit at all casinos all around the world.
Previously these machines used to have a lever or handle that could be pulled and the numbers will move to form the winning number. Nowadays buttons are used instead of a lever. In olden days when slot games were at a nascent stage a free beer or cigar was given as a gift. Nowadays the game has transformed into mega bucks associated with it.

You can maximize your winnings if you will learn the way to bet in slots. slot machines rvm work on the basis of a random number generator, which specified constantly changing, truly random number, which when activated by the pull of the lever correspond to certain positions on the reels.

Winning in a slot machine usually depend on the how many coins you bet, the more coins the more money you can win.

Story of Two Frogs

A group of frogs were traveling through the woods, and two of them
fell into a deep pit. When the other frogs saw how deep the pit
was, they told the two frogs that they were as good as dead. The
two frogs ignored the comments and tried to jump up out of the pit
with all their might. The other frogs kept telling them to stop,
that they were as good as dead. Finally, one of the frogs took
heed to what the other frogs were saying and gave up. He fell down
and died.

The other frog continued to jump as hard as he could. Once again,
the crowd of frogs yelled at him to stop the pain and just die. He
jumped even harder and finally made it out. When he got out, the
other frogs said, "Did you not hear us?" The frog explained to
them that he was deaf. He thought they were encouraging him the
entire time.

This story teaches two lessons:

1. There is power of life and death in the tongue. An encouraging
word to someone who is down can lift them up and help them make it
through the day.

2. A destructive word to someone who is down can be what it takes
to kill them.

Be careful of what you say. Speak life to those who cross your
path. The power of words... it is sometimes hard to understand
that an encouraging word can go such a long way. Anyone can speak
words that tend to rob another of the spirit to continue in
difficult times. Special is the individual who will take the time
to encourage another.

azalea ..

If the sight of me fills you with disgust,
and drives you away, i will send you off with no words .
Even if death takes over me, I won't shed a tear .
Now that you left, are you happy ?
Is it not you anymore ?
I lived as I looked at you
Have I been hidden by her ?
The pain of love is too big .
I can not breathe
I'll beg you to be happy
I'll beg you with my soul
If the sight of me fills you with disgust,
and drives you away, i will send you off with no words .

a flower named azaleas
As much as my arms can embrace, i'll scatter them on the road you take .
Each step you take, Where all those azaleas lay
Please step on them lightly as you walk away.
If the sight of me fills you with disgust,
and drives you away, i will send you off with no words .
Even if death takes over me, I won't shed a tear

Even if i face the wind and stand by you
You will still love her

the amazing new york

New York City, which is geographically the largest city in the state and most populous in the United States, is known for its history as a gateway for immigration to the United States and its status as a financial, cultural, transportation, and manufacturing center. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, it is also a destination of choice for many foreign visitors.
No doubt, because New York is just one great big playground. There are so many great, fantastic things to do and see in the sparkling city of New York. It has always been known as the city that doesn’t sleep and that’s because the nightlife and entertainment is some of the best in the world.
I really want to see everything wonderful at that city, and I’m sure a lot of you are interested to, but New York is such a large and diverse city, it's tough to really see and do everything in a short amount of time. The best approach is to figure out what is most important to you and then save other activities for another time.

It’s better for us to visit New York Sightseeing, so we can choose the best tour track for us ^^
We can visit Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty, Central Park, and a lot more wonderful spots while riding on Double Decker bus. Sounds fun! ♥
