I want to share another happy event in my life- after decades my father has finally quit smoking. This means goodbye to the days of my mum chasing him out to smoke, stealthily throwing away his cigarettes, putting up no smoking signs etc. Seriously, those are some tactics we have tried over the years. A shadow seemed to hang over our family in those times. It seems like it's finally got to him that he's destroying his life by smoking.

The reason I consider smoking so serious is because many years ago my grandfather passed away of lung cancer. I've seen the pain it caused to him as well as his family members. So it really beats me why anyone would take up smoking knowing fully the potential dangers. Why would someone intentionally damage his or her health? I think health is one of the most important things to have. I'm saying it because I'm alot better off now than in the past when I had serious allergies.

Yay, dad! Hopefully he can keep it up.

PS. Thanks for your lovely comments, sil!

Oh my, this is truly happy news! Congratulations to you and your family! Maybe you can help your dad keeping it up by giving him encouragement and maybe suggesting to him some fun things to do so that he won't think of smoking again.:D

HEY HEY! i'm really excited about something. there's this website called where you can sell your crafts. you can check it out after A-levels with ur sister if u'd like to do up an online shop. I dunno how it works 'coz I only just discovered it and I dunno if u already know but it seems to work so see if you can give it a shot. Remember to try it's a friendster+blogger thing and there are a lot of online shops there u can learn from. plus u get a lot of publicity if u have a bigger friend network. i'm a member of so u can just add me and i can network u to my frens and family when u set up the shop. =) jiayou for studies for now! i'm giving suggestions now in case i forget later. it's late at night and i'm ranting. cya in dreamland =)
