Birth Month Meme

Merry Christmas everyone!

As I browse through my mobile phone's calendar, I just had a "light bulb" moment... in a few days, I shall have my first encounter with the big three! Yes, that dreaded big three-zero is coming very soon. What is it gonna be like I wonder. I hope for a life filled with more excitement than anxiety comes up!

I've been tagged by my friend Novz about this birth month meme (how could you? :D). To top with, gave me a deadline to respond!

Okay, let me discover myself... my birth month is January.

Stubborn and hard-hearted
=> (I don't think so unless I've had enough).
Ambitious and serious
=> (oh, yes!).
Loves to teach and be taught
=> (to a certain extent).
Always looking at people’s flaws and weaknesses
=> (nah, I try not to).
Likes to criticize
=> (do I? maybe when I'm pissed).
Hardworking and productive
=> (I'd like to believe so).
Smart, neat and organized
=> (ehem, O.C! But my working table can remain neat for no more than 2 days).
=> (definitely! I can see through the eyes)
and has deep thoughts
=> (haha, I just think too much!).
Knows how to make others happy
=> (really?).
Quiet unless excited or tensed
=> (most of the time even excited or tensed).
Rather reserved
=> (perfect!).
Highly attentive
=> (yup).
Resistant to illnesses but prone to colds
=> (regular massage have kept me healthy lately but still prone to injury.).
Romantic but has difficulties expressing love
=> (hmm, ya I guess so, I'm just too reserved!).
Loves children
=> (oh yes! esp when they're in good mood).
=> (count on me anytime.).
Has great social abilities yet easily jealous
=> (I beg to disagree.).
Very stubborn
=> (am I?)
and money cautious
=> (I save for an early retirement but I manage to indulge).

If you're a Capricorn like me, read on...

Astrologers broadly agree that the following are the characteristics of Capricorn: The Capricorn person is prudent, responsible, realistic, very wise, formal, patient, methodical, disciplined, traditional, cautious, conventional, hard-working, persevering, ambitious, dedicated, focused, honest, dependable, serious, self-reliant, businesslike, career-oriented, authoritative, conscientious, and competent. They can also sometimes be rigid, suspicious, status-seeking, demanding, insensitive, inhibited, possessive, cold, dry, aloof, lack of emotional depth, possesive, self-conscious, materialistic, narrow-minded, vindictive, bitter, lacks hope, melancholy, controlling, harshly critical, restricting, calculating, and saturnine. And some can be abusive towards children and animals.

Likes- Romance, Loyalty, Feeling secure, Financial/material stability, Ambitious mates, Feeling committed, Making long term relationship plans, Dependability, Reliability, Perseverance.

=> (I like everything well-planned and in order... with determination, commitment and focus. Although, I wish I'd be more spontaneous, it's just not me.)

Dislikes- Flightiness, Being bossed around, Crudeness/coarseness, dominance, Game playing, Ego displays, Extravagance, Being challenged by a lover, Indecisiveness.

=> (Ooh, never boss me around, else you'll get a dose of your own medicine. hehe)

Suitable occupations are where responsible, patient and economising qualities can be exercised; such as scientist, engineer, manager, civil servant, mathematician, farmer, builder, politician, director.
=> (I don't seem to belong here, do I?!)

To me, these may hit close to 80% true... yet I believe birth month has nothing to do with the dominant trait of a person -- each individual is born and raised unique just like you and me. :D

Whew! I’ve never been this occupied. It’s finally over, at least for now. God is so good.

Twas my first experience to join a bazaar. So many lessons learned from merchandising, marketing to operations and customer service -- indeed a discovery of thyself… a far cry from my daily routine of counting numbers. I've sold close to 400 pieces of these! :D

The greater challenge was being part of the organizing committee. From the nicest comments to those constructive criticism, not counting the never-ending dilemma that came our way, those sleepless nights have finally paid off. To a few who did not believe in this project, i humbly say *wink*, ha we made it! It was not just a bazaar, twas indeed a feast! Those praises from shoppers I’ve never met before were priceless. The smiles and appreciation from the exhibitors were heart-warming. Thank you for believing in us. The feast shall continue very soon…

I just deserve the two sessions I had with the masseur and a shopping spree at the bazaar. My staff (that I have taken for granted during those busy days) will surely be delighted with the nice inexpensive earrings, bangles and bags I got for them! :)

Happy Holidays!
