Friday Fill-Ins

1. My blueprint for success includes working hard and never give up.

2. Grape flavour lollipop was the last candy I ate. (My eldest daughter insisted I ate it with her the previous day.)

3. The best facial moisturizer I've ever used is nothing as I believe our lifestyle and what we eat will affect our complexion in a way.

4. Have a nice break and having the day to yourself can be good therapy.

5. I'd like to tell you about my books collection and how it all begins.

6. Persistence is my strongest characteristic.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching some late night shows, tomorrow my plans include doing household chores and catching up on my reading and Sunday, I want to spend some time with my family!

    It's very sweet that your daughter like to share with her mommy :) How is your darling daughter doing by the way? :)

    It's nice to take a break and have a day to yourself. But once you are fully recover, I would love to hear about your books collection and how it all begins ;)

    And do tell me, what TV shows have you been watching? I hope you're having a good weekend :)

    Hi Melody, working hard and never give up are definitely the recipe to success. I'm reading the book STUPID UGLY UNLUCKY AND RICH by Richard St. John and that's what he said too. There are six others besides the two you already mentioned: passion, focus, push, ideas, improve, and serve. :)

    I also agree with you that what we eat is more important and will affect our complexion in a big way. No amount of external help will be good if we don't take care of our body internally.

    And oh yes, do tell us about your book collection! And with that, I have a book tag for you here. Please play. :D

    I hope you're having a great weekend!

    Hello, everyone! Thanks for visiting! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. :)

    Shana - I'll probably share the story on the tag which Alice has tagged me, hehe. ;)

    Julia - She's doing well, thanks for asking! :) I've been watching the local drama serials lately, nothing interesting actually. ;P

    Alice - Those are great points! Thanks for sharing. :) I'll try to play the tag soon.

    I always love reading your weekend plans! Somehow they always sound just perfect, probably because you always include spending time with your family. :)
    Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!


  9. Melody Says:

    Debi - I really treasure the weekends. With my eldest daughter in full-day childcare, and the hubs and I working, it always seems to me the weekdays are so short! ;)
    I hope you all had a wonderful weekend too!

    I started my book collection when I was in fourth grade, back in Hong Kong. Storybooks made up almost the entire collection, along with some study guides and supplementary exercises in math and science. The collection grew tremendously when I started college, as i moved into my own apartment with two roommates. I lost track of how many books I have accumulated over the maticulatory years and found some 40 cases of books to be shipped back home. I still have 15 of them in storage, mostly Penguin classics and texts from school.


  11. Melody Says:

    That's cool, Matt! I only started mine in secondary school, hehe. Thanks for sharing with me. I always love reading fellow bookbloggers on their book collections. ;)


  12. Julia Says:

    local drama series? As in the Korean drama series? Teehehe. Mom still watching Korean movie and got me addicted...as you already know teehehe


  13. Melody Says:

    Yep, they're all local artistes, hehe. I'm not a huge fan of Korean drama serials but there was once I was addicted to Japanese drama serials. ;)


  14. Working hard definitely is a step needed for success. I would love to hear about your book collection and how it began! :-)

    I hope you have a great week!
