Agnes&Julius Prenatal Portrait



I was introduced to help this flying couples to capture their very first prenatal portrait. Why do I call them flying couples? Just because their job is to fly...
Julius, the pilot of Malaysia Airlines and Agnes also work as stewardess in same airway company.

They are very kind and nice to chat~ both of them are camera face! (that's really true, I have to clarify that I was not bribed by the chocolate from Frankfurt XD). As since Agnes will going to deliver next month, I had proposed to do the shooting in their house, so the mom-to-be will feel more comfortable and safe.

Jealousy

What is jealousy?

envy, covetousness, resentment, resentfulness, desirousness

Synonyms: protectiveness, suspicion, suspiciousness, wariness, watchfulness, mistrustfulness, distrust, possessiveness

Jealousy can be a very bad thing.
It can be a very EVIL thing.

I won't sit here and tell you that I have never been a jealous person at some point in my life.

I'm just not currently jealous of anything or anyone right now.

but.......
I know jealousy.
I know what it can do to a person.
It takes over who you are.
You do very unchristain like things.
Its not a good quality to have. No matter what justifications you have for your behavior.
Its kinda like being an alcoholic. You never admit to what you've become. You never come out and say your actually jealous. You just become more and more obsessed with what your jealous of. In fact when friends try and point it out you only become more angry.

You go to great lengths to do/say mean things. Cause you think it will make you feel better. That some how it will change the situation for the better if everyone saw this person or situation for what they were.

You justify you behavior with excuses. That is only realistic to YOU.
It grows and grows until it gets totally out of control. Your anger takes over you.
(I know this one all too well)

Its all you talk about. Until people start to not want to be around you. What with all the negative behavior and all.

Jealousy can make you do things that you wouldn't normally do.
 Scary things. Mean things. Bad things.

One never realizes this until they take a step back and look at how bad its gotten.
and to think all that energy was just wasted.
 for nothing.
No matter how much you try to convience yourself.
Jealous behavior and actions are NEVER worth it.

Try
forgive and forget.
 it totally works.

Do you know of somone
who has allowed
 jealousy to take over their life?

Have a nice week!

Connections

Is there such a thing?  As being connected to someone? Someone who just gets you.
 Just cause you’re attracted to someone or have some or ok a lot of unusual things in common doesn't mean anything. Right. ? or does it?
Does that mean you’re destined to be together?
If you have a connection with someone, does that mean you should drop everything(end a marriage? travel a long distance? disappoint family?

and pursue this person/relationship?

What if its your only chance? Is there such a thing as having more than one connection with someone?

Is it destiny.............................................
the predetermined, usually inevitable or irresistible, course of events?
Is it fate;  a prophetic declaration of what must be?
Is it Karma; the good or bad emanations felt to be generated by someone or something?
What would you do in this situation?
DO you believe there is such a thing out there? have you experienced it before?
A soulmate?
A person with whom one has a strong affinity.
I am very troubled with this right now.

What to do, what to do.
I do believe there is someone out there for everyone.
That perfect someone.
  Not in the sense of being perfect but a perfect fit .

Sunday swap meet















One is the loneliest NO

One

One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
Two can be just as bad as one
It's the loneliest number since the number one

No is the saddest experience you'll ever know
Yes, it's the saddest experience you'll ever know
`Cause one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest number, worse than two

It's just no good anymore since she went away
Now I spend my time just making rhymes of yesterday

One is the loneliest, number one is the loneliest
Number one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest, one is the loneliest
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
It's just no good anymore since she went away
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest
(Number) One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

On the RUN

Springtime is supposed to be getting closer .
(so that little rodent freakin said, I’m just not a believer  yet with all this freakin snow we keep having)
AS much as I want it to get here the thought of spring approaching is kinda freaking me out.
Since, I promised the soccerboy last fall that I would run in a 5k with him.
In the spring.
Now, I have been running for about 8 months.
Heres the big but...........
Its only been On/off . I've had to take a few breaks due to my injury in my hip and my Gastritis.
Sooooooo, I don’t really feel like I am where I should be to run a 5k. 
Some days I can run 30 minutes solid no problems.

While, Other times I feel like I can just barely make it a freakin mile and ½.
A 5k is more than a mile and ½ people. Alot more.
Some of my runner friends have given me a pep talk, saying that I can always walk some if I needed to.
or that the adrenaline rush of just being in the race will be enough to get me through the whole race.
I just don’t know. I am one of “those” people who if I am running in a race,
1)    I won't walk and  2) I enter a race to place.
I don’t want to come in dead last.
I’m not saying there is anything wrong with either of those.
 I’m just saying that I am the type of person if I don’t go balls to the wall and do really well then I won't enter to run.
At least not until I feel like I am 100% ready.
Does that sound stupid? 
and now recently I have bumped up my work outs to, two a days.  In hopes that I will be ready come spring.
Any runners out there have any tips to give me?
I sooooooo want to be ready
 to run with the soccerboy.
I don’t want to back out
of the promise I made to him.

From the big apple...The Strokes

For us one of the best band from New York.
Julian Casablancas & Co. play awesome music. Sometimes speed n' strong, sometimes romantic, always fantastic american rock n' roll!

Lollapalooza Kittycat Style

Soooooooo you know how I was supposed to take this trip to New York this summer.
Well…………………………
Things have changed. SO change in plans
Now I think I am going to go to the Lollapalooza in Chicago instead.
I love music.  Alot.
It just seems like a perfect vacation for me.
Plus when I went to Chicago before with the tattoo girl, to tour the art school we didn’t have much time to see all that there is to see.
Plus Lollapallooza is before school starts.  I wouldn’t feel right being gone during school.
Besides soccer season is in the fall and I can’t miss any of the soccerboys games.
So Ive been on line checking out hotels and stuff.
Im excited, August isnt that far off.
Anyone have any hotel suggestions? Anyone been there or live there?
I promise to post photos of my trip. For sure

Captain America Sketch Cards

Got my blanks in today from Upper Deck for Marvel Comics' Captain America card set. It ties in with the film that's coming out this year. Should be fun to work on.

Packages

I know someone who loves to get packages.
Now I'm sure you are thinking, well hell who doesn’t like to get packages in the mail. R i g h t?
But
There is a difference  between getting a package that’s for you and just the enjoyment of opening anyones package. 
It’s a good thing I never order anything I might be embarrased by. 
Since the majority of time all packages have been opened before I even get freakin home.
Did I say, someone in my household has a “thing” about opening packages.
Now, I never really thought anything about it when this person was “younger”, because all little kids love to get things in the mail.
It is very exciting. No?
That’s one of the reasons I send my 5 year old nephew cards and stickers in the mail on a regular basis. It makes him happy.
I'm all about happiness people.
Sooooo, this person at my house loves to open packages.  So, in order to get packages you have to order shit. Which we do all the freakin time.
For the most part, it's items that we need. 
And
then theres the shit we don’t really need.
I honestly hate to order shit on-line.
But I do it for this “special” person. 
Also did I mention that half of this crap, this person really doesn’t even need but
we order it anyways.
All I got to say is this person better get themselves a really good freakin job. Otherwise they will never be able to afford to live out on their own.
Unless they expect me to continue to purchase shit even after they move out.
Seriously that’s not a possibility is it? Are you freakin kidding me?
So do you think this is a strange habit?
