The Strength of Love in 2010

The year 2010 is almost over and I just look back at what the year has brought me. I see that love of some people got stronger and deeper this year, but also that some people has lost love, like I did.

My Aunt and Uncle got the biggest gift this year to deepen their love for each other.That gift is their newborn son Daniel.

I see that the love of my younger sister and her bf got stronger after she went to Singapore/Indonesia for a month in June.

The love of my best friend and her BF also got deeper and stronger this year.

My Cousin Lara and her bf are living together now. They have their own house/home.

And today, That's the reason why I am writing this blog, my friend texted me and told me her boyfriend proposes to her. So now she's engaged. I was totally shocked, it was so unexpected, but I am superhappy for her.

I should not forget to tell you that my best guy friend who moves to China for his GF, is married this year.
As for me, my BF broke up with me after I went away for a month.Break ups is never easy, but somehow I wasn't that heartbroken. I wasn't feeling likeI lost my true love. It hurts that our three year relationship could ended so easily.That he just let me go.

But I admit that I am thankful that he did that, because if he didn't I haven't met my new BF.I was afraid of moving to fast and that I use him as a rebound, but in my heart I know that this love is real. He really cares about me and I care about him too . It feels like I know him longer than 4 months. And I sometimes forget that there are a lot of things I don't know about him. But I got all the time and patient to find out more about him.
Love isn't only about love for the person who is your BF of GF.Its also about the love of your family.
The First Thing when I think of family is my parents, my younger sister and me.
I feel like I am closer to my family than before.I began to appreciate and value my family. The ones who are with and around me and the ones I met for the first time this year in Singapore and Indonesia.

My cousins Jessica and Stella were one of the first people I met in Indonesia. They are so nice.
My cousins Vania & Rania from Bandung and Arief and his GF Lita. Also other familymembers we met who welcomed us like how families always do. We felt like we are home.

Also my cousin Cindy (Eugenia) who I have a lot of contact with on Facebook and MSN before I met her in Cilacap welcomed us like family. I feel like she's always been there in my life, even when I got to know her only this year. And I miss my family from Indonesia.

It took me way longer than I thought to write this blog. I have to go to sleep. 2 whole days until the New Year is coming in our lives.

In case I don't post a blog entry before the New Year; I wish you all a
That is:
Enchanted, and
With a lot of
Yellow sunshine
Everlasting moments
Awesome events
Romantic days
A Lot of Love, LC

SALE: Shopping in Rotterdam

SALE!!! When I heard that my parents wanted to go to Rotterdam I was happy, because there is sale in the stores. I love SALE!!! Until I went today; it was really crowded and the stores are really a mess... So I hate SALE today. Hehe, but even so I still found some cool stuff.

@ Bijenkorf I found Cloud 9 stuff with discount. I brought 3 bday cards for 50 eurocent per card, 2 photo albums, 1 pack of badges and 2 shoppingbags inside the panda bear. 1 photo album is with cats. This all cost 13,50 euro.

I also brought Wii Sing it: Family Hits @ Futurezone, The Khaki Racoon Beanie @ River Island (8 euro) and a present for someone special. (*^_^*)

@ New Look: 2 scarfs (grey and white) 4 euro each, 1 black glove (3 euro) and a black dress (19 euro)

This is a better picture of the black dress that I brought @ New Look

Because I went to fitness this morning and did the groupslesson, my legs are already painful, so after shopping my legs are just killing me. Shouldn't go shopping when I went to fitness XD

Love, LC

H&M Spring 2011 Catalogus & Super Sparklers

When I saw the first look for the H&M Spring Collection, I thought: where was the offer for getting the preview Catalogus. Because two times a year H&M has a preview catalogus; for the autumn and the Spring. But this time, I think, there wasn't a preview catalogus of the Spring. Because I got the normal Spring 2011 catalogus. But that doesn't matter, I am going to look at it.

I went to shop for food and I am addicted to Mars Planets. Blokker has a special price 1.29 euro, so I brought four, because my younger sister boyfriend is also addicted; he ate the whole bag. I also brought super sparklers, because its almost new year. So I am going to light up the sparklers. I don't like fireworks with big bangs.

That was my blog for today. I am eating Mars Planets and going to read the H&M Spring 2011 Catalogus.

The Day After Christmas

I don't want to brag, I just want to show you what I got for Christmas. I know it's a lot and I am so thankful that my BF, Wendy and my family brought presents for me. So, Thank you for giving me such wonderful, thoughtful gifts.

As you can see I got a lot of nice things. Books of Tarot; giftcoupons of H&M and ICI Paris; shampoo of L'Oreal Elvive; Socks; Earrings; Lipgloss of Hello Kitty; Christmas Cards and Lavender soap of Sissy Boy. See under for bigger pictures of my christmas presents.

This is my first Christmas present. I opened it on Christmas Eve (24th) and I tried it out immediately. It's a karaoke game of Glee. They only have the songs of the first season.
The game is cool when you are fan of Glee. You sing with lyrics that appear on the screen and you can see the videoclip where the cast sang the song.

This Christmas present is from my Aunt Ellen. Its from the Ikea. Its a baking form for cupcakes and a photoframe. I really liked it. So this means that I am going to make cupcakes soon :P
This present I got from my BF. We saw Disney' Tangled in the cinema and we both loved that movie. Especially the scene in the rowboat with the floating lanterns and the song 'I see the light'. Thats why he brought me this. I really really love this statue of Rapunzel & Finn.

This is another present of my BF. He brought me Hello kitty as the English Queen when we saw it in Amsterdam and now he gave me all 5. Hello Kitty: Formation Arts: French Princess, Greece Goddess, Chinese Empress and Arabian Dancer. Also the English Queen again and I gave that to my younger sister. I will post a picture of them all standing in my room. For now, I show you the box.
This is a snowglobe of Belle (Beauty and the Beast) My BF gave this to me. I know he has spoiled me at Christmas. He knows that I love the movie Beauty and the Beast. So that why he gave this to me. All his presents are thoughtful, really sweet and meaningful.

Also from my BF, because I love the Twilight Saga and he just really wanted to give me this. He didn't watch this movie before; so because of me, he watched the first (Twilight) and the second (New Moon) and now he has to watch the third.

Also from my BF; He wanted to give a wii game of Sonic. And I told him that this game is really fun, so he bought it for me. Its with a Steering Wheel. Its difficult to play with a steering wheel in the beginning, but the game is a lot of fun.

I got two other Christmas Presents that aren't on the picture.
- Melody Bath/Shower gel. ( Forgot to take a picture of it)
- Desperate Housewives Hairdryer. ( Can't show you that, because its @ my BF house)

Well, that was my blog about the Christmas presents I got this year.
Love, LC

Merry Christmas!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Sharing it with your family and friends. The whole month December is a preparation for Christmas. Buying presents, shopping for Christmas Diner, Visiting the Christmas Market, Going to Church on Christmas Eve and more...

Shopping-streets are decorated for Christmas and stores has products that are involved around Christmas; an example is Starbucks.

Starbucks has three flavours for december: Toffee Nut Latte, Pepermint Mocha and Praline Mocha. My BF & I had Toffe Nut Latte and Praline Mocha. It tasted good, but because of the cold weather and the whipped cream; the coffee got cold really fast.

It snowed a lot before Christmas. As you can see at the picture above (taken in Almere). There was a lot of trouble with public transportations like bus and train. Also for cars; it was difficult to drive on the road, because it was slippery, snow storms and the snow were really thick.

Christmas isn't Christmas without a Christmas tree. My mom loves bears. So every year we have a Christmas Bear Tree. The theme colours this year are red and gold.

My BF also have a Christmas Tree at his house. I love it with Disney Stitch in his tree.

Every year I celebrate the first Christmas Day @ home. My mom cooks Christmas Diner for a lot of people. This year for 19 people; all family from my mother's side. It's fun and nice to see family again and I find it amazing that my mom and my dad can organize the Christmas Diner.

This year my younger sister got a Curling Iron for Christmas, So she did her hair and my hair.

Here is a picture of me and my bf. He specially 'suited up'for me. He's really crazy, sweet and cute. He surprised me by coming on Christmas Eve. The 2th Christmas Day I celebrated it at his house.

I really love celebrating Christmas this year. It was fun, relax and nice. I have celebrate Christmas Eve and both Christmas Days with people I love and who means a lot to me.

Disney 50th Animated Movie: Tangled 3D

Today I went to see the Disney Movie Tangled in 3D and I was really impressed by this movie. I saw the trailer and I didn't knew that the movie would be that great and really amazing. I laughed, I cried and there was a moment where I had my mouth open. It was really beautiful and amazing.

It was this song and this scene above with paper lanterns flying up in the sky.
Here is the song:

Everybody who hasn't watch this movie. You should go see it. It's like the old Disney Movies with beautiful songs and ofcourse the story.

Love, LC

4.45 AM on a Friday Morning

I woke up at 4.45am and I just wanted to fall asleep again, but H&M shop online has a SALE again and I don't know if you know, but the products that are on sale are sold out pretty fast. I was curious when H&M Online fill there stock again. So I went online at 5 am and they didn't fill their stock yet. So I waited with my sleepy head and finally at 5.30am the stock were filled and I went through to the pages really fast to buy products that I, my mother, my younger sister and my cousin Lara wanted.

H&M Shop Online Sale is really crazy. You see 20 pages with products and by the end of the day there are only 2 pages left. Example: I ordered clothes at 5.30 am and within 15 minutes a lot of products that I like or want/ in my size are already gone. I have ordered a lot from this Sale. Like vests, dresses and tops. H&M made a good move to have a online webshop. The only problem is that a lot of people wear H&M clothes now.

So, now its a few hours later, it's still dark outside and my day just hasn't started yet. Its going to be a quite long day. I am going to fitness and in the evening I meet up with my best friend in Rotterdam Alexandrium to go to the Irish Cheap Clothing Store: Primark. Its going to be the 4th time in a month that I am going to that store. I always find something that I need. Yeah, I know I am a shopaholic, but I am a women. I like shopping especially for clothes XD

After Primark my BF is going to pick me up and tomorrow we are going to Disney Tangled (Rapunzel) OV 3D I am so excited to see the movie.

I have to get out of bed now and have breakfast. Its going to be long day XD

Love, LC

W = Waiting

In life we always have to wait for everything. We learn to have patient, but it's hard to wait for anything in life. Waiting in line of the supermarket, waiting for love to happen, waiting to get things done. Wait Wait Wait, I know its hard, but when you patiently wait things will happen, if you just believe in it.

This is a song of Disney Beauty & the Beast. My BF played this song on his mp3 in his car while we are on our way to the Hague, yesterday. I love the Disney Movie Beauty & the Beast, but I think you know that by now :D

Love, LC

S = Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

Blog of Tuesday, November 2th, 2010

Yesterday I watched this movie at my BF best friend house. This movie is based on a comic book by Bryan Lee O'Malley. The movie also looks a lot like you are reading a comic book/ playing a videogame. You should see for yourself, then you know what I mean. The movie was quite interesting and fun to watch.

The story in short: It's about a boy who falls in love with a girl. He has to defeat her 7 exes so he can be with her.

Love, LC

Ps. Yes, I am behind again XD
