Meet my niece, Emerald Christenssen :)

Hi guys!

This site has been on hiatus for soo long, I almost forgot about it :P

Anyway, lots of things happened this year and the most wonderful is the addition of one cute little angel into our family. Her name’s Emerald Christenssen – she’ll be turning 6 months on the 4th of October – can’t believe how time flies so fast.

Am overloading this post with her cute shots – some old, some new – hope you’ll love them as much as I did :)

When your tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.
When it’s in your spine like you’ve walked for miles
And the only thing you want is just to be still for a while

Oh way oh way oh oooo
Oh way oh way oh oooo

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I’ll be right beside you
I am right be right beside you

When you’re overwhelmed and you’ve lost your breath
When the space between the things you know is blurry nonetheless.
When you try to speak but you make no sound
And the words you want are out of reach but they’ve never been so loud

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I’ll be right beside you
I am right be right beside you

I will stay.
Nobody will break you,

Trust in me, trust in me.
Don’t pull away
Trust in me, trust in me.
I’m just trying to keep this together, because I could do worse and you could do better

Tears are spent on your last pretense
And your tired eyes refuse to close and sleep in your defense.

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I’ll be right beside you
Nobody will break you

If your heart wears thin I will hold you up
And I will hide you when it gets too much
I’ll be right beside you
Nobody will break you.


Dear Claire,
What and If are two words as non-threatening as words can be.
But put them together side-by-side and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life.
“What if? What if? What if?”
I don’t know how your story ended but if what you felt then was true love, then it’s never too late.
If it was true then, why wouldn’t it be true now?
You need only the courage to follow your heart.
I don’t know what a love like Juliet’s feels like – love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for.
But I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I will have the courage to seize it.
And, Claire, if you didn’t, I hope one day that you will.
All my love,
~ from the movie ‘Letters to Juliet’




Gain was a slave to her answering machine for days, checking it far too often, waiting to hear anything from Kwon. But none came.

Every day she pondered on what she might have done or should have done differently.

Was she too forward? Did she look so eager? Has she made it too obvious on how much she wanted him?

She’d never regretted her honest ways and her impulsive actions before but with the recent events, she’s starting to. And by the seventh day, she was angry at herself; and at Kwon who seemed to forget about her existence.


Something’s outside and it’s not the rain.

Gain sat up straight in bed and strained her ears to hear. There it was again, a creaking sound created not by the raindrops but more like footsteps. Throwing back the sheets, her heart pounding hard in her chest, Gain walked through her dark room and went towards the living room.

Pushing one corner of the drapes aside, she saw Kwon standing outside with his head down, two hands spread wide on the glass windows, rain coursing over him. With a soft cry of alarm, she wrenched open the locks but before she could pull him inside and out of the downpour, Kwon had dragged her out and slammed into his arms.

He was trembling as he held her tight.

“What happened? What is it?” Gain was worried as to how he’s hurt but he’s holding her so tight she can’t even look at him. “Hush, Kwon, hush. It’s all right,” she whispered, her hands on his back trying to call him down. She tiptoed to kiss his cheek.

At the touch of her lips, Kwon turned his head in a frantic seeking until his mouth found hers. Surprise hit Gain as he lifted her into that kiss; his hands roam over her body instantaneously. His tongue found hers and then explosion of heat flooded her insides.

No one had ever kissed her like this – with raw emotion and need, with sheer passion – she was frightened and thrilled at the same time.

Kwon broke the kiss and buried his face on her neck, planting hot kisses there that she shivered at every touch of his lips.  His mouth went back to her face, licking at the droplets of water on her brows, her eyes, her cheeks and right there and then, Gain felt her own need breaking free. Soon after, it was her searching upward for his mouth, her hands flat between their chests.

When her mouth finally found his, Kwon lifted her high in his arms, his hands cupping her behind, he pressed her hard to his groin, rhythmically moving her against him.

Her fingers were clutching his neck, entangled in the wet curls at his nape before they slid down to feel the expanse of his chest and his shoulders. Touching him this way was like having a wild fantasy come true, excitement blasted through her in waves and waves she couldn’t control, she shuddered with its power.

Kwon’s hands slipped inside her night dress and found the softness of her breasts then his fingers caught at her aching nipples and he groaned with satisfaction as she cried out.

She became someone so overwhelmed by sexual arousal that she seemed to lose her awareness of everything, her sense of time and place … even herself.

She could feel the rain pounding down on her but didn’t know she was calling his name at every touch, at each rough caress.

She lost track of when Kwon swept her gown off her and backed her against the wet glass window.

She did feel though his warm mouth as he suckled hungrily at her bare chest. Her hands automatically reaching for his back and did her fair share of touching, caressing the wet skin of his sides in blind and circling motions.

Gain felt his palm glide down over her stomach then went beneath her underwear. His long, delicate fingers slid urgently into the warmth between her legs that she gasped, her knees collapsing.

It was then, when he had to catch her weight, that Kwon realized where they are and what he was about to do. His hold loosened.

“Don’t stop,” Gain sighed, her grip tightening on him. “Please!”

Something between a groan and a sigh escaped Kwon’s mouth, he held her tight to his chest, his lips pressed on her wet hair.

He supported her weight with his one arm as he breathed heavily and threw his head back several times before he bent down, pressing their foreheads together.

“Forgive me, sweetheart,” he whispered hoarsely. “It’s all going too fast, this thing between us, isn’t it?”


“With the way I feel for you …”


“ …. am not sure I can slow it down.”

Gain could only gulp and murmur incoherent words.

“Don’t mistake this like am playing a game, ‘cause am not. Am not playing you and this is not a game to me. I really -”

“Shhhh,” Gain’s shaking fingers touched his lips, cutting him off. “Let’s go inside.”

She began to walk backwards, pulling Kwon through the doorway and then into her bedroom’s bathroom. Inside, she flipped the lights open and reached up to start unbuttoning his shirt. His eyes never left hers but he seemed dazed.

She pushed the soggy cotton fabric away from his shoulders only to gasped – she’d never seen such body up close – every curve was sculpted, beautiful. His arms were with thick, twining muscles, and his stomach a series of tight bands.

She grabbed a towel only as an afterthought and reached high to dry his hair. He remained passive under her rapid movements but then the motion slowed down and the towel drifted to his torso.

Her hand went to made circles over his chest and found his beating heart, felt it racing with hers. Eyes to his, she allowed the cloth to fall and her fingers went to unbuckle his belt.

Gain thought that when this time comes she’d be frightened or timid. She’d been wrong.

She’s on fire, achy and very much impatient to touch the sleek warmth of his skin.

But she only got as far as the top of his zipper.

He reached for her, his thumbs sliding into the gap between the thin robe she’d managed to put on. In one swift move, he was able to pushed open the loosely belted clothing, Gain’s head fell back, hands dropping on her sides.

Kwon’s hands outlined her sides, waist and hips, giving her goose bumps. His hands rose to slightly graze her breasts, Gain closed her eyes even tighter as she felt her nipples contract, and her last bit of clothing sliding down the tiled floor.

He stared down at the soft curls between her legs and then let one hand cup her possessively. His mouth met hers at the exact moment, her cry was caught, her senses reeled; she cling to his neck.

“You’re so beautiful,” Kwon’s voice was low but intense. He bent over again, giving her nibbling kisses on her face and neck.

“Would you be with me tonight, Gain?”

Gain swallowed painfully and answered …


 I KNOW –  it’s such a cliffie (told you, it’s a heart attack material :P ) – you wanna strangle me hahaha

I would have if I am on your shoes, believe me :)

But that’s all for now.

See you next time …
