Wow been a long while since i last posted.
Been kinda busy with so many things in my mind while my body remains in one place – home LOL.
Christmas season is coming.. know your family and friends’ love language. Through a recent post in a group, i realise everyone treats gift giving and gift receiving differently. One can be very careful and thoughtful in her gift to her friends and get upset when the same amount of thoughtfulness wasnt given. Such as giving a skirt to a baby boy’s full month or baby shower.
I encountered this as well few times personally. I feel for this person totally as i was totally upset too. To the other party, it’s not a big deal. Just a wrong gift, but she made the effort to attend isn’t it. So, this person’s love language is having quality time.
Thus i really feel regardless towards our family or friends, we should make an effort to know their love language. Maybe what they wanted is not your presents but your presence.
Basically there are 5 types of love languages, namely :
- Words of affirmation
- Receiving gifts
- Physical touch
- Quality time
- Acts of service
Want to know more about love language, you can get these books to read about it

I am still in the mist of finding out my sons’ love language. It seems to be a mystery LOL. I asked both of them, do you prefer daddy and mummy spending time with you or do you prefer receiving presents from us? J1 is rather greedy i guess that he couldn’t up his mind, whereas J2 immediately said, “presents”, but after a while, he said that he also like us to be around LOL. I guess towards our children, we will show them all our love, no matter what languages they have.
So, what’s your love language? Do share with me about it =)
