Lose your dream, find your destiny.....


Life is a funny thing. Some people believe that each person has a destiny, whilst others may believe you make your life through dreams.

To me though, destiny and dreams are each an edge of the same double edged sword. It can bring you the feeling of triumph in a battle but yet it can also cut you with sorrow. With the belief in destiny and the hope of a dream, one is still bound and there is no escape within a realm of conflict, challenges and fears.

So where does happiness lie? Is it in the moment of triumph, or in the courage of struggling before success, or the step you have faltered, or the moment you realise who you truly are? Is it in destiny or is it in dreams? Is it when you laugh or is it when you cry?

Each has their own interpretation of happiness. Red might see it as laughing hysterically. Blue might see it as a moment of stillness. Pink might see it as holding hands with the love of her life. Yellow might see it as a sunny day. Purple might see it as roses, cakes and ice cream. Black might see it as being promoted at work. White might see it as giving some blood to save others.

So what is your happiness?

In the words of motivational speaker Tony Robbins; "Lose your dream, find your destiny!" Sometimes where you have set out to go to, might not be where you end up. It is the journey that counts........and I am still on that journey of course. Whether you believe in destiny or dreams, I hope you will find you way and realise your true happiness. Have a lovely Sunday everyone.

Qipao Love: Part 5 ~ How-To choose and wear a Qipao (Cheongsam) that will love your frame!

A little warning is probably in order my darlings...as this will be a rather comprehensive How-To Qipao post! I will try to incorporate my own knowledge as well as what I researched through time, to create a rough but helpful guide for ladies who might want to attempt wearing the Qipao! Why do I say attempt? In today's fast paced life the Qipao has become a rather occasional dress even for a faithful admirer like me and I can understand why it might not be the most popular attire in the world, but I also know that many ladies who admire the Qipao might resist the idea of wearing it because of different barriers. Being a lover of the Qipao myself...trust me I know the fearful qualms and muffin top resistance to wearing a Qipao all too well.....whether it is a matter of figure, budget, impression, style, occasion, look or finding the excuse to wear a Qipao, I hope to be able to offer some help towards a solution and ask that you forgive me if I am too long winded. The Qipao really i…

What better way to celebrate this transition than to start on one of my favourite topics.....with Part One of my "Qipao Love (All about Qipao)" series of posts!

Throughout my blog over the two years, I have mentioned the Chinese Qipao dress (also known as Cheongsam in Cantonese) quite a few times, especially during the run-up to Chinese New Year. Having a self confessed love of the Qipao, as some of you darlings who have been following may know, I can usually be spotted wearing the Qipao throughout the 15 days of Chinese New Year festivities and have been adding one or two new Qipao dresses t…

Qipao Love: Part 25 ~ What to wear to a Chinese wedding tea ceremony?

In all weddings and almost every culture, there are different traditions or themes that should be considered as well as respected by guests. How traditional or cultural a wedding is, will depend on how traditional the couple or their families happen to be, as well as what their ideal wedding looks like. There is of course no one plan to suit all and hence no ultimate wedding guest guideline exists, but I can offer a little more perspective from what I understand about Chinese weddings and the experience of being a part of my sister's wedding a few months ago. My sister Vicky got married in Singapore during the month of March, and had a wedding spanning over two days fusing both Western styles as well as Chinese traditions. Being quite relaxed she had mentioned to guest that she did not mind the colour or choice of clothing they would like to wear. So I opted to wear the Qipao; a knee length blush pink with elaborate flower knotted buttons silk Cheongsam for the tea ceremony in the…
