I hope i can read your mind

Ever wonder what your other half have in mind? i do, always.
guys always say its hard to understand a woman. but hey you guys, dont you know you are the same too?!
we have been together for 6 years. from the sweet romantic moments(aww how i miss that!), to the unstable stage, to a steadier stage, and to the bored/dull stage. i know, compared to some of you, 6 is a small number. but please just allow me to express whatever i feel inside! at least for now..
i'm not sure whether he'll be reading this, his pc is under repair now. blame him for accessing too much of those sites (you know what i mean) =p
for many times, i have thought of writing him a letter. erm, not exactly a love letter. some sorta complain letter. cause sometimes i find it hard to speak to him face to face. some thing is best spoken through written words (though speaking verbally brings more sincerity) but in the end, i gave up. i dont have enough courage to do so.. i'm so soft-hearted i'm afraid my words may hurt him. i'm such a coward i know! i want him to know exactly what i want but i'm too shy/scared! this is so bad its not going to solve any problems! i find it kinda funny because as for our 6 years of relationship, we still havent grow up. we still fail to handle problems in a mature way. but i bet all couples have their own hard times and arguements dont you? but tell me how do you make up then? how do you let your partner know what exactly do you want and what about him/her? does the method works for you both? do your partner understand and gets what you're trying to say and what about you? sigh i hope a love expert is reading this and answer to all my questions!
i knew i have written a few posts here about my other half. whatever it is i'd feel better the next day after i post my blog (yes i feel better today). and as time goes by, that angriness/sadness went away. and i'm back to the normal me. but i know, the root cause is still there :(
okay so everyone say communication is the KEY. but tell me how can i communicate with him in a direct way? i dont intend to tell him too much which may lead to more misunderstanding/confusion. yet i want something which is powerful and simple enough to make him catch what i'm trying to say. sigh.
maintaining a relationship is a great knowledge. its hard, even harder than programming wtf.
we still have a long way to go darl. i hope we both are ready to overcome all the problems before we actually proceed to the next stage.

p/s: comments are open. do share with me your stories k.


  1. Hayley,

    When you want to talk, treat him as your best friend. Then only you can be more open on what you want to convey. Good to be honest and frank, don't keep inside your heart, it is not wise at all to let him guess what you think. Don't afraid of misunderstanding in communication, there is always a chance for clarification. Infact, small arguement can make you guys understand each other better.

  2. yan, i wonder can i really treat him as a friend though... but i shall not give up la rite? thanks alot for the sharing! hopefully it works for us... ;)

  3. There are ups and downs along a relationship.

    When we were still newly-wed, I always end a discussion with argument, blaming each other for the mistake. We go to bed feeling angry, which is alright but not healthy at all. Then, I wrote him letters, to express how I feel and what I expect from him. I didn't know what was on his mind after reading those letters.

    Now we apologise at the end of an argument, or whenever we make mistake. It keeps the bond stronger.

    Actually I don't have the spare time to pen down everything on my mind. Accept his and my flaws and move on with happier life.

    It takes several ways to tackle different scenarios.

  4. yup, must be honest and frank...dont let him guess ur mind...guy always think different from gal, so just let him know what is in ur mind straigh...
    hmm, may be can find a good time and good environment then have a good talk...even from his face like not really understand u, dont angry and geram him 1st...i bet his heart and mind alrdy received ur msg and he will know what should do next step...
    guy might not really good on show out their love, feeling and concern... so try to understand him and give him some time. (if ur darl is "da nan ren", so must pay more patience to him... u knew "da nan ren" always hide their feeling 1) 6years relationship is very long and be worth to keep it on~
    keep think positive, he sure will understand u and give u more sense of security 1day~
    wish ur happiness and blessing ever and forever!!! ;)

  5. yvonne, this is quite true. most of the time when we argue, we end up ignoring each other. but the next day, we are back to normal.. i think we need some serious actions now..
    anyway, thanks for the sharing!

  6. evelyn, such a long comment! but i like long comment! ;)
    but i dont know, usually i'm the one who gives-in to whatever he wants.. he used to be the more 'dominant' ones.. i think i have given him enough patience through this 6 years. perhaps he gets the wrong message thinking that i dont mind whatever he's doing?
    hmm, i'm wondering when will be the 'one day'...

  7. hayley, so is u over spoil him lar~;p what to blame?! heeheee...
    but dont worry, expend will get repay as well...just need some time! hmmm...seriously, u must have a good talk to him... let him know what u want and wat in ur mind! (pls and must show him ur serious face) Coz u too spoil him, he might take u jokking~;p
    the "one day" sure will coming...
    must have confidence lar~gambateh!!!

    p/s: hope u wont take my long comments as "luo suo" coz i'm not so good skill on talk ;p

  8. evelyn, may be only.. i'm not sure.
    but i did talked to him many times before, given him direct/indirect hints. i admit i made a mistake by giving him indirect hints in the beginning. soon, i realised that he did not take it seriously. so from that onwards, i tell him directly what i want and what i expect from him. he did listened at that moment, but seems like he tends to 'forget' the next day :( he keep repeating the same 'mistakes'! >=(
    it makes me feel like he didnt listen/care to whatever i said... T__T
    but anyway, i am doing my best now. hopefully it works!

  9. Hey hey gal, im having the same problem too. The guys just dont understand us. Normally we have problem i am the 1 voice out n discuss but end up argue. Once argue i will talk less and ignore to make things goes worse. End up problem not solve. Argue everyday thou. hahaha.... and recently i've been thinking.... Is it guys who work for their own business dont have time to think so much about relationship and as long as they have us around to support them? wtf!?

    As i apply the concept "treat him as best friend" to speak out with him... but the guy is being NOT FRIENDLY to speak out. EGO!! Damn it! Yes, maintaining the relationship is hard. Oh gosh! I though i am the only 1 facing problems with so long relationship. I got member ady! hahaha.. :P :P

    Anyway, things can be solve nicely. Im sure you can do it. I dont have method to solve problem, as myself also the same. As i know u talk to them what you want, then they will act nothing happen and slowly the guy will full-fill your needs. They just being EGO! Hate that! ahahahah.... :D
    Chill kay! xoxo

  10. well...everyone already make their point clear... You just have to know after you have talked to him, you should give him some time to change... you know...bad habit need time to change,right? Accept for who he is and try to communicate more...if you don't speak out (in a good way I mean)...the problem will not solve...
    Gambatte girl! It's hard to have someone with you for 6 years... appreciate what you have and try to make up with each other.. you fill in the holes in him and he fills in urs.. you know what I mean right?
    Take care! ^^

  11. hey wan, of cause you are not alone.. i bet most of the couples out there have the similar problem.. i think we both are very much alike though :S yea, sometimes egoism is the culprit. but what to do.. its something God created and perhaps its the way to differentiate between male and female?
    anyway, you too! all the best to you and your relationship!

    ivy, yea i get your points. but sometimes i wonder, its not that i dint give him enough time/patience.. 6 years! its been 6 years! we've been through alot of hard times already.. i thought we both learnt some lessons..
    thank u my dear! u take care too!

  12. Yea... 6 years many things happen, hard and bad time gone thru... both tahan each other end up all burst at the same time, things will be worst thou. :S
    I experienced before. haha.. As Ivy said, bad habits need time to change. Hmm... i got negative thinking as my bad habit... 5 years ady still bad habit cannot change... very hard. But still trying. :))

    No worries! We gambateh! :D

  13. After reading your blogpost and the comments, I somehow felt better; at least, I'm not alone. And I guess most couple faced the same scenario.

    One thing I notice abt man. They assume everything in OK and perfect in a relationship and when you mentioned you have sth to talk abt or to discuss, they'll assume it's sth bad ie. you wanna find trouble. As for me, I'd always prefer to talk about small little things that happened, rather than wait for the worse and we fight about it. But I tried to discuss abt the small things, I'll end up getting myself be seen as sensitive, or small gas.

    I really don't understand whats in their mind. I like man who're career minded, but I think they should put their relationship as important. Or probably men just can't multitask?

    Sometimes, many things happened that I almost gave up. But I guess we've come a long way, there're must be a reason why we compliment each other so well in the first place..

    All the best to you, to me, and to everyone :)

  14. wan, somehow for me, if someone is willing and determined to change his bad habits, he can managed that in no time. so 6 years could be a very long time already.

    cryst, i've always wonder whether you have the similar problem? as i read your blogs all the time, i think i seldom read about you mentioning the negative sides of your relationship. but yet, you are facing the same thing. once again, i think its something very normal for every couples.
    well, its quite true. men just cant multitask especially when it comes to RELATIONSHIP stuff! you're right, we've come a long way. its definetely worth it for us to keep the relationship stronger. but, if only one of us is putting the effort, then things will never be fine. right? i hope our other half will do something about it... *pray hard*

  15. Haha I seldom mention, 'cause I don't wanna remind myself about it, or to remember the bad incidents that happened. And sometimes he reads my blog and he doesn't really like the idea of me putting my life into a blog and letting everyone know so much about myself.. I did a few post previously, which I saved as draft for my own read :)

    Well, I think he puts in a lot of effort and he gave in a lot for me too, but sometimes things just don't feel right. Probably I'm expecting too much, or probably we have different defination of a healthy relationship? ;)

    Hope he doesn't read my comment here, HAHAHA!!

  16. cryst, ya, you'd better hope he is not reading this! :D
    for me, i dont really need to worry about this. as my other half seldom reads about my blog. like, very seldom.

    anyway, its really good to have share the stories with all of you! i really appreciate whatever you gals written here! thanks again!
    *hugs and kisses*

  18. Oh god! Cryst, you mention "They assume everything in OK and perfect in a relationship and when you mentioned you have sth to talk abt or to discuss, they'll assume it's sth bad ie. you wanna find trouble. As for me, I'd always prefer to talk about small little things that happened, rather than wait for the worse and we fight about it. But I tried to discuss abt the small things, I'll end up getting myself be seen as sensitive, or small gas." this is what my bear did most of the time. He thinks i am finding problem with him. wtf?! Oh gosh! Why?! End up we woman have to suffer all these problem. Sighs All the best to us! Ang kong po pi! Lol... hahahah....

  19. wan, i think all men are the same.. haha..

  20. HAHAH wan, your comment made me ter-LOL-ed in my office cubicle lah! wtf..

  21. Wow, I learned so much from this post and comments. It's true that every couple will have gone through this kind of problems.
    Ya, why do every men tend to pretend to be nothing bothers them,tend to be cool with everything and tend to open minded for everything but actually they are not at all? They tend to hide everything in heart and exploded it out when they couldn't stand it anymore in some time, just like a volcano explosion, haha!
    No matter how many millions times we, the gals, advice them to share with us how they feels or any opinions, they will just promise it, and that's it,end of story. Men will always be men, with their style, ego and ego and ego. They won't really shares things out unless we ask for it, and then they will think we are troublesome, think too much, worried too much, too close minded and too controlling! Right? But they won't know that we care how they feels, that's why we want them to share it out.
    By the way, Hayley, i suggest you to read a book, "Men are from Mars, Women are Venus", you may get it from MPH. This book really thought us how to understand of other half and I learned a lots of "men's things" from that book. That book also teaches us how to understand each other, tolerate each other and maintain a relationship. The book suits for both, guy and gals. But, even though I had learned and understood the book, but I tend to forget it especially when in an argument, LOL!
    Relationship is not easy to maintain, but WORTH it or not, you should know it. It's hard to find a guy that loyal to you for 6 years and still willing to go through forever with you.You are lucky, gal!
    Hope your problem will settle soon!
    Also, hope every couple sweets and lovings all the times!

  22. comment too long...pai seh...sorry!

  23. yoong, wow thats really a longgg comment! but no worry, i like long comment!! :)
    well, i guess i have said what i wanna say in those previous replies.. to summarize, men are always that ego!! haha..
    ok, i will try to look for that book. i hope my other half can read it too!! is there mandarin version available??
    but i have always feel that i'm the only one who reads about all those meaningful articles/posts.. sigh~
    all the best to u!! take care~

好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~


BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)

By far…


Aden: 各位阿姨叔叔好啊!=)

最近实在忙,几乎一个星期才能生一篇文,有时两个星期呢 =_="
早上都在忙家务忙孩子和载大宝上学。  下午得哄小宝睡午觉~ 还要兼顾我的网卖生意。 不过最近的他好像不爱睡午觉了耶!如果他没睡我就更不得空了!得陪他玩~  话说玩不到一下下就得出门载Aden回家了~~ 每个星期的两个傍晚我都会上tabata课,一下课就回家继续当‘佣人’ xD
晚上就是陪/教Aden做功课,有时间的话就看看AOD的香港连续剧(话说最近的连续剧都不好看!)  过后就要给孩子们睡觉啦!  每天大概就是这样过,几乎都在做同样的事,都是围绕着家庭和孩子。  不过忙归忙,累归累,我觉得都是值得的啦!  当了全职妈妈5年,没后悔过 ^^

 近两个星期的天气都很糟~ 想不到可以去哪个游泳池(之前去到酒店游泳池已经不开放给外人了 T_T),所以干脆在家玩玩水就好~ 还好这几天开始有下雨了,要不然真的要发热气了!

 上周末大宝的幼儿园老师举办动物园半日游,我第一时间报名 :p (当然是先问Aden意愿啦) 虽然上学半年多了,很多时候他还是比较内向/慢热。这次就让他和老师朋友出外郊游。原本想和他一起去,还好我没有!想说借这机会让他独立独立 =)

 老师拍的照片~  看了都感觉很热很热对吧?  一说到动物园,我第一形象就是热!xD

 去载他的时候都没什么,老师也没有complain xD  问他开心吗,他说开心,看到很多动物,还说谁谁谁跌倒,谁谁谁的妈妈有去等等~  看来是很enjoy啦!

 我虽然很累很想休息,不过周末傍晚如果天气好,我都会尽量带他们出外玩玩~  要不然呆在家也是看ipad玩玩具而已~

 久久晒一下夫妻两的照片 :p  我们还是一样,无穿无烂 :p 只是最近的他晒黑了很多!没办法啦!太阳公公太热情了,而老公也得出外做工养活啊~ (
辛苦你了老公) 话说我好像很少在这里提起我家abang的ho?哈哈!
不知不觉都认识了14年,当夫妻已有8年。  两公婆开心的时候有,不开心的时候也不少呵呵~  不过这也算正常吧?毕竟要两个不同背景的人要走在一起组织一个家庭不容易,难免会有意见不合争吵什么的~  我觉得最重要还是要互相体谅和多沟通啦!这样才能长久~ right? =)

 从早忙到晚的我,真的很需要好好保养和调理身体~  感恩我遇见…
