"Would you listen to my story?"
"People always pity us, think that our lives in our home sucks, but hey, I've got friends here."
"I've got brothers who would lovingly pull my ears, whether they're my real brothers or not, but it's alright, they're my brothers."
"Do I look unhappy to you? Well yeah, maybe I am unhappy...but since you guys are here, I'll just..smile? :) "
"We listen attentively.."
"...and laugh like every other normal people. We just want you to care for us...for real."
"..and have fun!"
"...we enjoy food.."
"I am very curious, what's that weird lump at your throat?"
"Weelll...we get punished sometimes."
"We wonder too..cos we've seen and been through a lot..and there are just some things about the world that we don't quite get."
"Oh we LIKE gifts...!"
"If you care enough to listen to me, please do come again."
He was a normal baby. He was given a surname Lee. He has a sister, a mother and a father. One day, he was brought to the playground to have some fun. This is the photo where he enjoyed his SLIDE!!!
~Mummy!!! I'm coming down!!! YAY!!!~
Another time, he was brought to a dinner. He was dressed nicely JUST for that occasion. And... this was how "hideji" looked like...
Being a boy, he was very active as well. He likes to climb up and down, run here and there, jump everywhere, etc. That's why, HE SWEATS... A LOT...
~"Ha! Smiling there? You better go take your bath!" says mum~
Like any other kids, he was sent to the kindergarten. When he was six years old, he finally GRADUATED!
~Faster take la! I very tired ar!!!~
Now, I would like to take the opportunity to wish "Hideji" a blessed day and... HAPPY BIRTHDAY KENT LEE!!!

What is so special about WWJD? Firstly, a round of applause to the marketers for inventing wrislets. It was the "in" thing in my time. And when one has it, everyone wants it. Some people even has it in different colour hues and in different designs. Secondly, it's catchy initials. Thirdly, because everyone has them. Oh, it's a peer pressure thingy.
But really, is that all to it?
I've got a few wristlet myself, which I have misplaced them over the years. At that time, it doesnt matter if WWJD stands for What Would Jesus Do. It doesnt matter if it has a significant meaning to it. No. All that matters is that WWJD is cool and I want to be cool. Period.
This term jumped out on me today. Maybe because I foresee a hard week ahead. Witnessing true colours to human behaviours and getting a taste of the working life. I asked "What Would Jesus Do if He's in my shoes?"
Would Jesus hide in the toilet and cry himself a river? Or will He take it as an experience and eat the humble pie?
Life, many have said, is not smooth sailing. It is in times like this, that we must remember: WWJD? Arent we blessed to have someone to look up to when we're in cross roads?
"When life throws you a lemon, make a lemonade!"
Have a good day, everyone! :)

~both of them (can't differentiate huh? I think the left one is the male and the right side is the female. Forgot already... =p)~
~both of them (this i can differentiate! The left is the female and the right is the male)~
When they have grown older,
~this is the older side of her in Sg Klah~
~the sleeping view of her~
~the "cool" side of him~
~the wrestling view of him~
Yes! It's the twins who is among us - Li Qi (known as Ah Ki) and Henry Chow (known as Ah Kai/ chicken)!!! I've heard that in the birth of a pair twins, the "real" elder brother/sister will come out later. Firstly, the elder brother/sister wants to let his/her younger brother/sister out first (so as to be polite). Secondly, it is like that so that the "real" elder one can be known as the younger one and look younger. So, in this case, Ah Kai might be the elder one. That's what I heard only la. Don't know whether it's true or not. Hehe.. Anyway, Happy Birthday, Ah Qi and Ah Kai!!! May God bless the both of you in everything that you do. =)
