Give Love on Christmas Day…

Sunday, 26 December, 2010

I’m happy and proud to say that I’ve made few people happy this Christmas season. Taxi drivers, colleagues, salesmen and sales ladies, guard on duty, passengers, and other strangers. It feels good sharing your blessings to others. And for every simple gift given and act of kindness done, my prayers also go with them. I’m glad and thankful that God gave me the power to make other people smile… their faces are beaming with happiness! Cheers everyone! Happy holidays!

Day 22: Sooo Unique!

Friday, 24 September, 2010

There’s only one brilliant and cheerful Lizzie in the world, that’s me. 🙂 I’ve already shared 40 things about me and for sure that’s enough to give you an idea of who I am. If you can’t recall any, check these out:

25 Random Things About Me!
15 Things to Love and Hate About Me

Yup, I’m good in bed MATH. That’s forty! Hehe… And if you’re craving for more, everything about this 30-Day Challenge should suffice!

Liz-anime-girl

So, what's so unique about me?

I’m a kid at heart but think like a grown up. Blame it to my ever imaginative and analytic mind. The image above is sooooo me! Hihi!  Especially those kawaii stuff around. The one sitting on “my” head is Mugu mugu, the two other tiny creatures are Snowhite and Kyubi. *wink*

+1 random fact about me: I want everything fair and square. As what I always say: BE JUST OR BE DEAD. I always fight for my own ideals and do what is right. If I can be a super hero or a princess of justice, I’ll be! 🙂

Day 18: Moving Forward

Monday, 20 September, 2010

I have talked about my short term goals for this month. This time, let’s be more specific about the long term ones. Who knows, someone out there can help me realize them… 🙂

Anime_Carefree

Embracing life...

• Own a house and a car (and of course to learn how to drive that car!)
• Put up a restaurant business or cake house/bread shop.
• Have my own online business, most likely SEO firm!
• Get married and live happily ever after. So excited to have my own happy family!
• Travel around the world, 3 international tour per year will do.
• Extend help to other people especially the needy, children and elders. I want to touch more lives…

Hmmm… that’s all I can think of right now. 🙂

I can feel that… all of these dreams, are just few steps away from reality…
Hold my hand and walk with me, will you?

Day 13: Unsent Letters

Friday, 17 September, 2010

I tried my best not to cry while working on this. Almost. I have raised my concern countless times, but they won’t heed. For now, let me vent out. I am writing to my heart’s content so let it be…

my deathnote letter

Fueled by impotent fury...

Few lines to people I hate as of the moment:
“Do your job! Are you familiar with the domino effect? If you can’t do yours accurately, how can we be effective workers?”

“I’m getting tired of reminding you! Are you really forgetful, or it’s just your attitude. Fix your habit and everything will follow.”

“Think out of the box! Listen, listen, listen! And understand.”

Day 12: Blogger For A Reason

Tuesday, 14 September, 2010

This is related to Day 02: What’s The Meaning? and suddenly I’m lost… But let me try my best to recall how I get addicted to blogging. 🙂

As I’ve said on my 2nd-day post, Rochelle Ann introduced Blogger to me (but now most of my blogs are on WordPress). I remember that me and Neil were so into it that we always asked her about the HTML codes during computer classes or even break time when we’re in the computer lab. But I’m not sure if my entry on Bloguardian Hellsite: Overcashed is really my first post. 🙂 I thought I started blogging when I was in first year college but it turns out, the blog was born on my 3rd year! IDK.

Anime In Love

Loving you from a distance... 🙁

I blog to express my feelings and that’s the same reason why liezl-read-write was created. 3 1/2 floppy disks or diskettes were so cool during that time that I got the hang of it. I still have few of them at home, pink, yellow, green and blue! But they’re no longer working and computers nowadays don’t have floppy drives anymore!

So that’s it! Such a long URL and should I have known that shorter is better, I’m probably earning more from it for maximized domain name and meta tags. *wink*

Alright, back to emotions, errr the feelings I’m talking about – LOVE! BHO is built upon love. Have you seen the very first nonsense post about Valentine’s Day? Oh yeah, I was too afraid to publicize the juicy details before that I kept it to myself and personal homepage at Geocities. Unfortunately, Yahoo! closed that service so gone are all the memories. Tsk. I have so many poems, pictures and stories there! I created a backup on Yahoo! Briefcase but when that service closed down as well, I don’t know what to do anymore so everything just went *poof*!

Good enough, no traces of heartaches and false hopes. Lol. I fell in love with one of the college professors and my best friend felt the same thing toward him. Haha! Then I had a huge crush on my classmate and I even confessed my feeling to him. My blog was not an open book during that time. I even created another private blog written in the native language, topics are all about love. I can still count the number of guys whom I had crush and fell in love with. And each time I look at the past, I can’t help but smile to my silly thoughts and laugh at my crazy deeds!

Right now, BHO is blog of mixed bags. Therefore, I’m a passionate blogger who can blog about anything without fear nor regrets! I love to write and I’ll blog as long as I live. Just like what my Friendster blog caption says: My mind and heart work in unison, and my fingers are the channels of their expressions…

Day 10: Songs of My Heart

Monday, 13 September, 2010

I rarely sing but I hum most of the times. 🙂 I am not blessed with angelic voice. I can let out a high-pitched scream but can’t reach super high notes. There are even times that I’m out of tune, sorry.

Anime Singer

It's so nice to be happy!

When I’m happy, this is the song that keeps playing in my head: I Know You Want Me (Pitbull)

I know you want me, want me
You know I want cha, want cha
I know you want me
You know I want cha, want cha

Sounds like there’s a party! 🙂

But because I’m a kid at heart, I usually hum “Meatloaf Kita” and the usual rhymes from TV commercials and the like.

When I’m sad: God Will Make A Way

God will make a way
Where there seems to be no way
He works in ways we cannot see
He will make a way for me
He will be my guide
Hold me closely to His side
With love and strength
For each new day
He will make a way
He will make a way
By a roadway in the wilderness
He’ll lead me
And rivers in the desert will I see
Heaven and earth will fade
But His Word will still remain
He will do something new today

I always play this when I’m sad. Consistent! Especially when I’m crying.:( Makes me feel better…

When I’m bored: On This Day (David Pomeranz)

Here we stand today
Like we always dreamed
Starting out our life together
The light is in your eyes
The love is in our hearts
I can’t believe you really mine forever

Been rehearsing for this moment all my life
So don’t act surprised
If the feeling starts to carry me away

On this day
I promise forever
On this day
I surrendered my heart
Here I stand take my hand
And I will honor every word that I say
On this day

Not so long ago
This earth was just a field of cold and lonely space
Without you
Now everything’s alive
Now everything’s revealved
For the story of my life
Is all about YOU

So if you feel the cool winds
Blowing through your nights
I will shelter you
I’m forever here to chase your fears away

On this day
I promise forever
On this day
I surrendered my heart
Here I stand take my hand
And I will honor every word that I say
On this day

I’ve been rehearsing for this moment all my life
So don’t act surprised
If the feeling starts to carry me away

On this day
I promise forever
On this day
I surrendered my heart
Here we stand like our plan
Please say you’ll always look at me this way
Like on this day

Because I daydream when I’m bored and I want this to be my wedding song! Haha!

When I’m hyped: Poker Face (Lady Gaga)

Can’t read my,
Can’t read my
No he can’t read-a my poker face
(she’s got me like nobody)
Can’t read my
Can’t read my
No he can’t read-a my poker face
(she’s got me like nobody)

And I hate music when I’m mad! >_<

Day 08: From Good To Great!

Saturday, 11 September, 2010

I’m not a superstar but I have my own shining and shimmering moments! Lol. So, what do I want to accomplish for this month?

Let me commend myself first for being soo organized lately. Not the OC-ness, it’s really a job well done! *wink wink*

Anime_Good Job

Keep up the good work!

For the fast few days, I was able to:

• pamper Chandler! I have organized everything on my laptop from desktop shortcuts to hidden folders, file compression and icon arrangement, program and features management, changing of themes, archiving and so on. Feels so good!

• update, compile, and back up my 15 blogs! Amazing, right? If you wish to see them, they’re under Link-EX, the bottom list. 🙂

• download pending movies and animes

• finish August project with the client

By the end of September, here are the things I’d like to accomplish:

• perfect attendance at work – No late and absences because it can greatly affect my stats and schedule for the coming months.

• organize my wardrobe – About time to let go of clothes that do not fit well anymore! Oh, I’m getting bigger. Haha. My closet is overcrowded, too. Needs a major overhaul.

• find a promising and stable online job. I’ve got no time to search for extra online jobs and blog posting opportunities are limited. I’m saving up for my car. LOL. (mental note: short-term goals, please!)

Those three will do. Of course I have more but I don’t wanna feel any pressure right now. 🙂 Plus, some are long term and I have to review my goals and do reality check from time to time.

Day 02: What’s The Meaning?

Thursday, 9 September, 2010

There’s really nothing behind it. It’s just my nickname. Not even a high shool or college pen name. I just want my name shortened. Rather, corrected. LIZ simplified everything. I hate it when people misspelled my name especially on important documents such as certificates and identification cards. Hmp!

Anime_Liz

Liz, at your service!

It’s just me – Liz. The typical A+ college girl with straight and long black hair who had it cut short after break up. And then everything changed… 🙂 LOL. Sorry, I’m  just missing my long hair right now…

Moving forward, Liz is of Hebrew origin, which means “God’s promise”. It is a short form of Elizabeth.

PS. Thanks to my friend Roch for introducing Blogger to me and calling me Liz all the time in spite of me calling her Rochelle Ann! 🙂
