my late valentine

juliana not having a valentine's entry. now even i find that hard to believe. due to certain circumstances it had to be that way. though i dont celebrate valentines day as it is.. just like and other loving [single] woman, i make it a point to actually do celebrate the day as lovers day. and what does a loving [single] woman do without a lover? she decides that her 2 loving [not single] friends go out and celebrate. and there i was... out on lovers day with my loving friends all filled with love... full stop.

in life we do a lot of things. good and bad. in life... people do a lot of things.. good and bad.. in life we will get hurt. in life we will hurt people. its not intentional but it happens. yes life is not perfect , yet its imperfection makes it such a good way to live and learn making it rather perfect as perfect can be. how do we know when to stop, when to go on... or when to just let go.

we'll know. somehow we'll know. its hard to say how and when we'll know.. but we will someday. because there's this voice inside that tells us. and if u listen hard enough... u've realized that u might have not been listening all this while. and when u finally listen... u'll find the way. and u realize... wow... what have i been listening to all this while? :)

hoping that all you out there, valentines or no valentines, is filled with as much love and u would want it to be. and dont make it just a day... its lovers day... everyday.

with all my heart.

Am I one of the loving friends you mentioned! So sweet of you Julie..

Just that, *chuckles* I'm single ok? Just not available. Until 'boyfriend like Aidan' comes, then I'll stop finding.

Love you too, Julie. With all my heart too..

I celebrate love on aidiladha, where the test of how far you would sacrifice for the one you love is put to the max.

Even so, everyday should be a loving day..

Take care.

I don't celebrate Valentines.
I believe it's pathetic to rely solely on a particular day to show our love, no Juliana?
We should cherish every day with love, even every moment as the clock tickles.

Everyday should be our joie de vivre ;)

Do you agree, Juliana?

read carefully :) quote my last paragraph..

'hoping that all you out there, valentines or no valentines, is filled with as much love and u would want it to be. and dont make it just a day... its lovers day... everyday.'

if we celebrate love everyday, how come it is not celebrated on valentines day? :)

as u my know.. i am a true believer in living life filled with love. and i am truly aware that because of my religious beliefs i am not to celebrate the day...

but still... its just another day.. to celebrate love.. like every other day... :) nothing more than that.

like I said, everyday should be our 'valentines'.
the mind shall not be neglected by neglecting love in our daily life.
thus, don't rely solely on one particular day.

it's what I am trying to convey.

yes, Juliana?

good god, my server dah baik, I mean thanked god! heh.

maka, what I want to point out here is that...

being someone who is in love but not attached, still single and not with anyone at all, its friggin weird to claim oneself to be in love right.

I'm in love with love itself. My boss (lady) gave chocolates to every lady in the office and told us that everyone deserves a chocolate on valentine's. thats sweet right. she said, valentine, celebrate it or not, is just an excuse to gather and rejoice love. nothing wrong with that.

on valentines, I thought of someone who is so in love with love itself that I decided, she'd be the first person I wish valentine. and after listening to her voice on the other end, suddenly I realized, being a non celebrator of valentine, that we can celebrate valentine. just as an excuse. to be happy. not that we cant be happy on other days. but what the heck. like eating rendang on hari raya. its not that one cannot cook and eat rendang on any other ordinary day. but just for the sake of celebrating.

you made me be hopeful on love again. and recently, I understand this love in me. the one I thought I've lost hope for. too consumed about losing the person I had loved, I forgot the experience of love itself. its remarkably breathtaking, its brought me closer to the sun and moon. and it expands my heart. and what I'm looking forward it who else to love and how much more.

see, I've blogged in your comment box. blame my office server okeh! hehehehe ....

2 My Fair Lady,

The middle paragraphs just got 2 me. How true...

I have this whole pile of Audrey Hepburn DVDs, and I just can't watch them anymore.

All my love and best wishes.

I'm so sorry...

hey.. those dvd's were not made to be left on the shelf!! :) audrey hepburn worked hard so that people who watch her would constantly be reminded of love and romance and all things beautifull...

u have to continue watching :) its the least u could do ...

"There was so much inside her, a feeling that communicated. Off camera she was just an actress. She was very thin, a good person, sometimes standing on the set she disappeared. But there was something very likable about her, just absolutely adorable about her. You trusted her, this tiny person. When she stood before the camera, she became Miss Audrey Hepburn. That's the "element x" that people have or don't have. You can meet somebody and be enchanted, and then you photograph them and it's nothing. She had it. And there will not be another. You cannot duplicate her, or take her out of her era. If the "element x" could be distilled, you could make all the Hepburns you wanted... But you can't: she started something new, something classy. Today there is Julia Roberts. She is quite capable, very funny... But no actress should be expected to be Audrey Hepburn. That dress by Mr. Givenchy has already been filled." - Billy Wilder

there's a sight of her plucking her small cute guitar singing "moon river" by the window while cat looks on haunts my mind.

to be said someone to be as close as audrey hepburn is simply ridiculous. same goes to meryl streep, diane keaton.

there's julia roberts. but she'll be julia roberts. meg ryan will be meg ryan. no one should be the next audrey hepburn. she lives. in the industry, in our hearts, forever. period.

I might not be a fanatic fan of hers. but I'm a fan of a true soul. I know one, even tho I have yet to meet, talk or laugh with one. I know by heart. by soul.

audrey hepburn is exquisite.

juliana ibrahim is angelic.

hi julie,

being single is a very much better option for you, rather than keep hearting your own heart kan?

it's always been like that for nice girl like you. well, the journey is still far ahead.

relax ah..

Maybe one day I'll watch them again. Perhaps someday we can watch one together... That would really make my day and perhaps make up 4 the past.

Your contrite friend,
