I'm gonna make you puke of roses! So here are ALOT of pics of the actual flower arrangement I sent to my sis on her b'day. I was mesmerised by it when I went home after work and set my eyes on these very tall, elegant, pink beauties, carefully placed in a cute box and cleverly arranged with fresh green leaves of various plants. My mum said that when she first saw it, she thought a whole garden had been delieverd and she wondered if there're any birds and reptiles in there LOL! When I saw the pic of this arrangement in the Roses Only website (the pic in the last post), I never knew it was gonna be so big, tall and heavy in real. So my sis had a huge burden to bring it home safely in her car without wrecking it. Even though she loved it, I promised her not to order an Amazon forest next time! :) Enjoy the beauties and don't forget to check out the titles for each slide (place cursor on slide), cos there are some SECRETS in there..;-)
Now, to some random news from my life at the moment. My 7yr old niece (cousin's daughter) is turning 8 this Saturday. So yeah, there's a huge b'day party happening at her place on Sat. She has just got her first email account and it seems like she can't stop sending emails to me LOL! I'm her first spam victim. And she always sends one-liners like 'hi keshi aunty'...and in the next one 'how r u today?'...and in the next one 'I got a merit card today'...and in the next one 'here's a joke'...and in the next one 'ooops forgot to add the joke'...haha! Aren't kids so innocent, honest and adorable. They teach us some great secrets of life that even some adults don't seem to know of. This is her..the lil brat. I love ya hun, you make my day!
Now, remember my Uncle T who called me few weeks ago (read here)...the one who's daughter (my cousin D) gave birth to her first baby. Well I sent her a card last week, and her baby boy's name is Divesh (that's him in these 2 pics just after he arrived at his new destination Earth). Well guess what? Today, lil Divesh sent me a TXT! Yes, this is the first txt that I got from a 4-week old bubs :). It read "Dear Keshi Aunty...thank u so much for the cute card that u sent...I'm really sorry I cudnt thank you sooner, mummy has been feeding me alot, therefore I hardly get to txt. Luv Divesh". Now isn't that the cutest thing ever! I felt so overwhelmed with love and joy when I received it this morning. My cousin D knows how to make me smile :). I can't wait til I go to Auckland next, to carry the lil one in my arms and tell him about some secrets of life. I txted back to Divesh, saying this: "ty sweet-heart and HUGS...wait til I come and visit u, cos u need the K-touch to grow into a hot boy some day ;-)". The boy has no idea what a maniac of an aunt that fate has given him! *poor baby*. Babies convey one big secret of life...and that is freshness and peace...to keep our minds fresh and free of baggage, no matter what.
I got another txt this morning...a close friend of mine went to Sri Lanka last week cos her mum was seriously ill. This morning her txt read "Keshi, my mum passed away this morning...". I was deeply saddened by that message and txted back telling her how I felt and that I'd call her soon. Death conveys another great secret of life...and that is - to live is to die..and to die is to live. The Sun rises and it sets too...it's all a part of it's LIFE.
And I was thinking...how in one single day, so many things can happen. Someone celebrates their b'day...someone else gives birth...someone rocks her newborn baby...someone else dies...someone buys shoes...someone else meets an accident and loses his mobility...someone cries...someone else laughs. Life is full of ups and downs, good and bad, tears and joy. Life is like a huge box full of secrets, both sweet and sour. One by one, those secrets surface to the top of the box and unravel themselves each new day...you have to take them as they come...but you can never hurry the secrets at the bottom to surface to the top. Neither can anyone tell you what they are. Every secrect has a time for it to show up. Til then, you've got to take them as they come, face them fully and LIVE to see what the rest of the secrets are. Cos you gotta LIVE to KNOW.
