I'm Ready

The night's quiet, as is my heart.. And I'm ready to let the world know that I, Missy Allets, will officially sport the title Mrs. in two weeks' time. Overwhelming, yes. Unbelievable, yes. Exciting, yes. But, undeniably certain.

I must say both Baby C and I did NOT expect it to be now. By the way, my eggs ain't fertilized, just in case you were wondering. In 5 years' time, yes, we've talked about it.. but definitely didn't anticipated now. So, why now, you're curious?

Thanks to the Australian government, I suppose.

At first glance, sure, you can say that we're marrying now because of visa requirements. But, the keyword is really, now. If time is not a factor, I believe Baby C and I will much rather it be in 5 years' time, when we're both more stable financially and emotionally.

But, the situation now has rendered us to make a decision. And to make it quick.

We can choose the easy way out, of course. Let it go, and forget about the whole mess. Trust me, having dealt with this for more than 2 years, I'm quite ready to say "Fuck it, I just wanna go home!" But, instead, we decided to take the plunge, the big step, the public declaration of "I do".

It's pretty much a matter of now or never. I'm sure a lot of yous reading this will not agree wholly on what I said. Marriage is afterall a big step and a big decision. But, just keep in mind one thing - that our love need not the nod of others, except family of course, which in this case we've got full blessing ;) So, Amen!

From the time we've decided to get married till now, a lot of thoughts passed by my mind. Sometimes they're stressful, often calming. I've learnt a lot, and I've seen more.

One thing for sure is Baby C's unending love and our deep unspoken commitment to each other. So, despite the risk of sounding like a lovesick teenager, here's a shout out to you, baby - I may not be the perfect little woman, but I'll try with all my heart and soul, just so you can proudly show the world that you've got the best wife ever!

It's now goodbye to me, hello to us. How creamy is that!

And well, inevitably hello to.. *slap me* cookbooks..

Ok folks, this is it for tonight. If you still love me for who I am, snoop around and I'll update on the wedding, I promise :)



Back.. For A Little While; Life's Beautiful (Take: Seven)

Before you start yelling, yes, I KNOW I've been missing for a bit.

But I'm back now.. for a bit.

Things are crazy at my side. 22 years of age, and Missy Allets finally comprehend deeply the meaning of too much things to do, too little time. It's so scarily true that it's not funny anymore.

So, Sister arrived safe on 13th May, Mothers' Day. From then on, it was constant planning and touring and being the perfectionist me, stressing.

I've been told, some 153,739,085 times, that I think too much. Seriously? How can I not?! It's tiring to play your own game, by yourself. Plus, I sincerely believe that given more attention to details, a lot of things can be perfect, if not absolutely perfect. Moreover, Missy Allets likes to try on every other shoes besides her own.. and THAT can be pretty frustrating at times.

I need air, and TIME to breathe..



Right, just did.

Having scared off half the readers with my constant ranting, let's move on positively.

I've finally got a companion! Note: aforementioned Sister.

It's not that I have anything against my life at this stage, but I'm mostly by myself, alone, during the day, and most of night-time. The reason being Baby C, hailing from Norway, got himself a job about two/three years ago dealing with mystery shoppers in the Norwegian market. His work time is 9pm - 5am.. the total opposite of what normal office hours are. By the time the poor soul comes home from work, I'm already fast asleep, though at times I do try to stay awake to greet him. When I wake to go about my routine, he's still knocked out.. waking in the evenings. Give or take 4 hours later, he's off to work again. Repeat cycle.. again and again, day after day, night after night.

I'm used to it, but sometimes it really is great to have someone/thing alive to communicate with.

So I'm thrilled with Sister's presence, especially at night, when we both would drape doona over our trembling bodies (autumn's turning winter) and start yakking about the latest gossips back home, how un-romantic is Baby C, how manipulative are her friends.. (ok, these are not very positive, are they?).. well, bottomline is, I'm glad to feel alive.. breaking away from alone-land :)

Afterall, life's beautiful..



Life's Beautiful (Take: Six)

Thanks for being the beacon in my life..

For without the light, I will be lost..

Struggling in the darkness

My heart is filled to the brim..

Deep deep love



Something big is coming our way.. like BIG, and REAL.

I can't tell you what, yet. But a date has been set and the idea was there. I just have to make sure everything is going alright before I make it known. *I don't wanna jinx it, I'm sure you lovely people will understand!

It's so scary, yet so right in a way. I feel really comfortable and excited at the same time. I know this is gibberish.. but I just wanted to share this little bit of info.

When the time has come, I will post more ;)

- Missy Allets, in total anticipation


Life's Beautiful (Take: Five)

and the heart to imagine..

Often, the sight is blurred. And we can't see what's beyond..
So, close your eyes and finally you will see..


Life's Beautiful (Take: Four)


By the bloom of the final bud,
all your pain will disappear.
This I promise..
