Typewriter Again

I love writing. I know I'm not a writer. I'm not even good at it. I just love doing it, anyway. I have my piece of writing everywhere: blog, phone, computer, diary and everywhere else. All in either computer print or handwriting. I just don't have them typed by a Typewriter. So I thought it might be authentic if I were to have them printed by a Typewriter.

I've once posted about Typewriter. The price is a bit expensive though. Yesterday I found another website that offers a Customized Typewriter for 260USD plus 100USD shipment. Sounds like a good deal to me. Anyhow, still considering.
I have my eyes on this beautiful purple. Pretty classic in style and fashionable in color.
But then I love the mustache! Vintage color and design :)

(LOVE)

4th Piece

Pretty much the same to the previous one. 
Either a signature or a cliché one.

STONEGRILL

Another new restaurant in town! Wanted to try when we found the advertisement back in April but it was not yet opened. And now it is for about two weeks already!

STONEGRILL is a luxurious type of restaurant with a mixed of nationalities; Offers of two types of food, Japanese and Western, together with a whole range of drink are for your selection. STONEGRILL located in a prime area, if I were to note. Facing the river under the dim light of the beautiful chandelier enhance a romantic ambience. A recommended spot for a date ;)

Oh well, let's have a look at shots I took.

The Stone is said to be 400 degree Celsius. It was hot the entire eating time.

I'm in love with the bar and the chandelier!!!

From 5 to 8 PM is a happy hour. Buy one get one free!

Finally, US ^_^

Late Night Movie: The Avengers

It is another productive day, not personally for me; anyhow, was productive. To end the day, we went for the Avengers movie. I enjoyed a lot. Recommended!
Had a really good laugh too!

Tea (?)

Today oddly want tea in the morning.

Suddenly get the urge to shop for Royal Albert. And that reminds me of my twin. Then the good time we had back then. She must be missing ME~* Hehe...

Once a Hobby

It's been a long while now that I haven't touched the ink. Today, I visited two coffee shops and got to spend some moment alone. For that, I had the chance to do thing I have once lost interest, drawing. Continuing the passion, I picked up dusted paper, dug in for pencil and collected brushes and ink when I got back home. And here's the result.
Pretty plain and blank. I may further adding some stroke to it. Will see.

How Comparisons Can Destroy Your Relationship

Navigating through any relationship takes strength, wisdom, patience and love, among other things. As humans, we naturally look to those around us for advice, perspective and knowledge. While viewing other relationships outside of our own can offer some insight into our own, it is often damaging to compare your partnership to those of other couples. The-grass-is-always-greener viewpoint is often irrelevant, since you don’t have all the facts required to properly assess the relationship. Here are a few reasons why comparing your relationship to others can be ineffective at best and destructive at worst.

Behind Closed Doors

The problem with comparing yourself to other people is that you never have all of the information. You’re making assumptions based only on part of the facts, but the reality is that unless you’re in the relationship, you’ll never fully grasp its delicate dynamic. This truth, coupled with the fact that people tend to present their best face to the public, exemplifies why your comparisons cannot be based in complete accuracy. You then judge the quality of your relationship by something which essentially doesn’t exist.

No Two Relationships Are Alike

As relationships are comprised of two unique individuals, bringing different life experiences to the relationship, no two couples are alike. To judge the quality of your relationship on whether the two of you have the same dynamic as other couples is a waste of time. No one can tell you how your relationship should be, especially since what works for some people definitely doesn’t work for others. All you need to be sure of is if the two of you work, with your individual and distinct personalities that make your relationship uniquely yours.

Keeping the Focus Outside of the Relationship

By constantly comparing your relationship to others, you are cheating yourselves out of time and energy better spent focusing on the two of you. Considering the amount of effort and work that goes into a relationship, busying yourself worrying about others will only take away from what you as a couple have. Don’t worry so much about what the neighbors are doing; instead work on strengthening the bond between the two of you.

While it is easy to fall into comparing ourselves to others, it rarely benefits us unless other lifestyles inspire us. In this sense, it’s good to appreciate what others have worked hard to achieve—and to use that as inspiration—as we work towards our own relationship goals. But use your wisdom in assessing the quality of your relationship, and appreciate the uniqueness that the two of you bring into the partnership. It’s good to remember the flipside of the adage “The grass is always greener”: ”You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.”

Choice

Every decision you make is a choice. Either willfully or unwillingly, the choice is yours. Either intentionally or unintentionally, the choice is yours. Either whatever or whatsoever, the choice is always yours. 

Embrace the moment and treasure the lesson. The choice is to look at the bright side.
