Love is in the air..

I came across this very interesting article when I was 'poo-poo-ing' on the 'throne'.. (haha.. too much info..) Anyway, since Valentines day is tomorrow, I thought it is quite appropriate to share this with all of you. This is just a random thing done by a group of professionals on a group of kids aged between 4 to 8 years old. The question is simple: 'What does love mean?'. It is interesting to see kids think about love.. Its simple but so sweet..

'When people love you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.' -Billy, age 4
//
'Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.' -Karl, age 5 (sounds abit disturbing.. haha)
\\
'Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.' -Chrissy, age 6 (I always do that.. I love you all that always eat MCd with me..)
11
'Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.' -Terri, age 4 (This is just so sweet and true..)
11
'Love is when my mummy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is ok.' -Danny, age 7
11//
'Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My mummy and daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss.' -Emily, age 8 (so cute man this gal..)
11
/ 'If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend whom you hate.' -Nikka, age 6
//
'Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday.' -Noelle, age 7 (that will be so smelly.. no wonder colognes and perfummes are so sellable.)
//
'Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.' -Tommy, age 6
11
'During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore.' -Cindy, age 8
11
'My mummy loves me more than anybody else. You don't see anyone kissing me to sleep at night.' -Clare, age 6 (I do miss my parents kissing me at nights before I go to sleep.. I'm so way pass the age man..)
11
'Love is when mummy gives daddy the best piece of chicken.' -Elaine, age 5 (they say the best way to keep a man's heart is to feed his appetite.. SO TRUE!!)
11
'Love is when mummy sees daddy all smelly and sweaty but still says he is more handsome than Robert Redford.' -Chris, age 7
11
'You really shouldn't say I LOVE YOU unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.' -Jessica, age 8 (this gal is such a genius and sweety pie)
11
And the best of all.. which i love the most is:
11
'I know my older sister loves me because she gives my all her old clothes and has to go out to buy new ones.' -Lauren, age 4 (Jess and Mandy, that shows how much I love you both all these while for sacrificing my clothes.. haha.. this girl is still young.. she will know the truth in later years.. haha.. so innocent and adorable..)
11
Often times we simply forget how simple love can be and its not about pricey gifts and datings only.. Learn from these children and you will realise that this world is full of love and be sensitive to all the little details your love ones always do for you.. (of course, you don't expect to find it from Mr O-sa-ma.. )

I would like to wish all of you, be it single or taken or married, A HAPPY and BLESSED VALENTINES DAY.. I seriously feel that you don't really need to celebrate on tomorrow because its so not worth it!!! Everyday can be Valentines Day my dears.. Even though I do not have any special someone in my life right now, I wanna thank all the people that have impacted my life so far.. Without you all, I won't be where I am today.. Especially my really close friends- Sau Kin, Wuan Chin, Grace, Jeffrey, Hermann, Ryan, Celina and so many more.. Also my dear sisters- Jess and Mandy.. I cherished every moment we spend together and all the wacky, sarcastic, heart-to-heart chats we have whenever we can't sleep.. and of course.. enjoyed gossiping with you both too.. Thanks to everyone that were there for me all these while and looking forward for a better tomorrow with all of you.. ADIOS!! *hugz*
