Get those creative juices flowing!!


    1. Enter me!

      The day I said "yes" to my current bf! :)


    2. omgosh having to relive one moment forever is kind of torturous...

      okay if I had to choose, I would choose the day I was born... you know when my skin was still silky smooth, when I was still an only child, when I didn't know the difference between steak and baby food, when I was stress free, when I can feel guilt free that my mama will have to relive the pain of giving birth to me for an eternity.... ETC. hahaha

      and is your bday on July 22 =D

    3. When IS your bday, dear?

      Honestly, i don't want to relive a moment in my life. I don't regret anything, and all of what I have now is because of all of my experiences. Especially considering that i would be stuck in that moment! I would rather move forwarod!

    4. It would be the first time I went to Italy. I wish I could stay there forever!

    5. it would probably be the first kiss i had with my bf...i wish i could relive that moment over and over felt like 1000 butterflies in my tummy =)

    6. Happy Birthday!!!

      I want to stop time and relive my senior year of high school. I had so many things going on and the best was winning the 2008 WGI World Championships. Our team worked our butts off to get to Dayton, Ohio and our hard work paid off when our high school name was announced as the champions. It was truly one of the happiest moments of my life that I want to relive over and over again. ♥

    7. Happy [Early or Belated] Birthday! I sent my entry through email!

    8. I know your birthday, nanananana! It's one day after mine. If we lived in the same town, we could have celebrated our birthdays around midnight :)

      I don't know. I really don't want to repeat anything in my life. Things happened for a reason and reliving the moment is not such a good idea. For the good, the bad, and the ugly, just enjoy the moment and move on to the next, I guess.

    9. If I had to relive one moment in life, it would probably be when my bf and I first met back in the day in high school.

    10. I wish I could go back to the time when I was a kid. I just had to play and didn't have to think about anything.

    11. Happy birthday!
      I would relive my prom night because I could have made it so much better. Or maybe this whole past week that's just been a drag. I want to make changes to the mistakes I've made.

    13. Happy Birthday, Nunu! If I had to re-live a day over and over, it would be my friendship with 2 best college friends our freshman year - that was almost 10 years ago. Specifically, it would be time when we were talking about what we wanted to do with our futures when we finished school and what dreams we wanted to follow. Funny how everyone has strayed away from her dreams now that we're all grown up.

    14. congrats!!

      please enter me..

      one moment i can relive again is probably when I first my then-bf-now husband on our first date. He had dropped his phone into the river and if he hadn't, i doubt we'd stay together because he wouldn't have bought the same phone on the same network and we wouldn't have got into each as much as we did!

    15. question...or rather clarification cause im easily confused...

      do you mean like a ground hog day movie type of thing? but applied to a day...month...year?

      If a day...then I would say around gr 11, our church went to Muskoka woods, and in the evening a few ppl and I were sitting on the docks, feet in the water, just talking in the moonlight. It wasn't a big deal, but it was a really carefree moment, one that was just really comfortable to be in.

      If a year, than first year of uni. I was loving school, appreciating life and the struggles that I had to endure to get there. I got really lucky and was able to schedule all my classes for after 1pm XD great for non-morning people like me.

      But...since it is repeating one moment forever...I probably wouldn't pick anything. If I were stuck at one point, it would mean that I wouldn't get to experience the other grand things in life, like my first grey hair (or rather 3rd :T), freaking out over my first wrinkle, getting married, having kids, fighting with said kids over their homework, loving work (if I ever get there), enjoying retirement...I wouldn't want to miss out on the stuff after...

      I guess it was a waste to even ask in the first place, seeing as I wrote whatever anyway! lol

      Happy Birthday Nunu! Hope that it was a lovely one, and filled with cake and other lovely yummy foods :)

    16. happy early birthday nunu!

    17. Happy belated birthday!

      If I could relive one moment in my life, I think I would choose to relive the time when I travel to Taiwan! It was so much fun that I want to do it over and over again :D

    18. happy belated birthday! your blog is really fun to read. i would stop time when i was 17 so i could dance to 'dancing queen...only 17' by abba over and over again!

    19. Happy belated birthday! I've been reading your blog silently ever since I followed it here from the Russian Fortune Cookie. I like your food posts a lot!

      If I had to pick only one moment, it'd be the moment when I was maybe five or so, my younger brother had already been born, and my whole family was at some kind of air show. My older sister and mother had hopped into some kind of crop duster plane for a ride, and I watched them circle overhead in my dad's arms with my favorite stuffed animal clutched at my side and my baby brother sleeping in the stroller. It is one of my most favorite memories of pure contentment, the kind where the crowd around you fades away and all you remember is the action you're focusing on and a lot of green grass, open skies, the security of your family around you and a plane buzzing overhead.

    20. Happy (super) belated birthday! Ever since coming home, I've been less able to catch up with blogs. =( Makes me super sad.

      Anyway, I don't think I'd want to relive any moment in my life, especially if I knew it would be happening over and over and over again. It makes a special moment not special anymore. Besides, even if I relived some awesome moment over and over again... what if someone else in the world had a terrible moment at the same time?! Then my relivingness would be absolutely torturous for them. I don't want that kinda thing to happen.

    21. I'm gonna enter anyways, LOL.

      If I could stop time, I would without doubt go back to the week before my grandfather passed away this February. I was in France on my midterm trip and at the time, I didn't want to go back to China where he was because I didn't know how to face the fact that I would have to live life without him (he pretty much raised me because my parents traveled a lot for work). So I made the excuse that I was busy in school and couldn't go back. Now its too late, he's gone and I will never have a second chance to tell him how much I love and respect him.

      I've never imagined a life without my grandfather, and even though a year ago I would never have thought time would go on normally and the world would turn like always without him in my life. Now I know its just another day to live.

      Anyways, happy belated birthday (again, XD). Can't wait to see you in real life in a few weeks =P

    22. My high school ball!
      It was a once in a life time oppourtunity that I loved so much!
      Everyone around me were having the best time... so nice to see everyone all dolled up and looking fabulous!

      Who wouldn't want a night like that to last forever?
