Yay! Finally some K session with my loved one Shaun Ang, with 09/10 peeps, Si Ying, Kang Yao and Shu Min.

It is my first time at CCK Center Kbox Outlet.
Okay, it was too ulu I was lost. I went up to Lot 1 5th Floor instead. #paisehmax!

I couldn't stand the smell there though.
I felt as though I was a passive smoker there. Meh. :(

This group of people all sang so well!
Shu Min's range was so up there HAHAHA.
And of course, Shuan and Si Ying are extremely good.
Not forgetting Kang Yao too.

I was rather surprise there's no awkwardness at all. Not to mention we aren't close to begin with.
Guess it's all down to all with same interest! :D

Not enough time to sing all the songs we wanted! 全部太会唱了啦!

Confession of a Shopaholic

Finally I can say it like I mean it.
Yet, nah. I have one of the worst outbreak ever and I have to visit a doctor because my face is kinda swollen.

Projects and overwhelming assignments are killing me.
I practically went crazy yesterday and shop for the whole day. Yes, alone. That's why nobody stops me. The pictures below will justify why.

I was actually looking for some formal wear, but I ended up getting other stuff.

Look at the number of carriers OMG.

And below are just some of the items I have got. :/

I realised I have way quite a number of pairs of heels. #shortpeoplefate
Yet many are too uncomfortable for me and I barely wore them twice. :(

And accessories? I'm too lazy to wear them out; my cardboard is full ald. :((
Hahaha; maybe they shall be my new motivation to dress decently to school rather than just pulling a rainbow jacket over because I overslept. BTW that jacket caught too many attention that day. I have people telling me they saw this jacket somewhere but didn't remembering seeing me. The power of colourful cardigan. Yay.

#boringpost; blame my boring day where I lock myself at home. :(

Gardens by the Bay - Earth Hour

Last weekend, I paid Gardens by the Bay a visit; for the FIRST time!

I was really excited about this visit and I think I made too much noise (anxious) in the train. Oh well! Little did we know, it was earth hour.

So everything was this dark when we reached. Meh.

I went there with my favorite people: Gordon, Jia Min and Aaron.

Pardon the quality of the pictures, some were taken with S3 and it was just too dark. :(

I promise it's much more beautiful when you are there in person.
These photos aren't doing much justice.
I felt I was in the Avatarland when all the lights turned blue. Woohoo~!

I heard people commenting "Oh my, this doesn't even feel like we are in Singapore. It's as though we are in a different planet!"

The Conservatories and OCBC Skyway were closed by the time we reached. (Admission tickets are needed by the way).
So we only stayed outdoor (it's operating from 0500-0200 daily!)

Gordon and I ran away from the soon-to-be-couple to give them some alone time! 
Please be thankful guys. I ran with my heels, and it hurts like crazy. 

I had a good long chat with Gordon while Jia Min just kept giving spam calls. 

To you Gordon:
I really love people who knows how to seek pleasure in simple moments. And certainly people who takes time to reply with long typed messages, just because they care and would want to make you feel better. And people makes you feel important as a person and worthy as a friend. 

I'm really amazed how comfortable I am when you my friend! Come to think of it, we didn't know each other for that long period of time; let alone hanging out together.
I'm thankful for all the times you were there to listen to my rantings (like my weird dreams or unhappy memories). 
Gordon, you are a special friend. And I'm sure I'm not the only one thinks that way!
(Aww, I'm so sweet!)

I mistook the LED Flying Kites in the sky as Cable Cars. (Y) 
Please don't judge me. I'm a local tourist. OMG. 

I gave Aaron and Jia Min wrong directions, but oh well they still found us.
Gordon knew that and didn't correct me at all. MAKE ME PAISEH ONLY. Meh.

And so, it's time for some camwhoring!

Thumbs up if you think that this is super sweet! :D

Look at how awkward Gordon is!

Aaron is too woodblock I couldn't think of cool poses.
Perhaps my brain was just dead - it was bedtime then alright.

Hey Aaron:
Hey buddy! You are one of the most mature guy friend I ever had or will ever have!
You are one selfless person who always swallow your anger, frustrations, unhappiness and the list goes on. I felt that you should know that you don't have to keep everything to yourself.
I know to you don't like to burden your friends with your problems. I'm not doubting your capabilities of handling things, but you can count on me, count on us!

We are friends. And friends don't see another as a burden.
I wanna be there for you just like how you did.

So buddy, even though we are all grown-ups now and busy with our stuff, our friendship will last. You promised me that by the way! I love you!

Dearest Jiamin:
And in case if you have not saw my fb update, this gorgeous lady here has been my BFF since 12 years ago. I asked her, "what's your first impression of me?" and her reply? "YOU ARE MY FIRST BEST FRIEND!"
Lahlah, nobody can ever replace you in my heart! I just declared my love on you on fb. Please be touched and love me more, thank you! :D

"BFF, I can't imagine life without you. I'm thankful for all the crazy times we had together, for supporting me in whatever I'm doing, and correcting me and help me advance as a better person. I love you!"

(And I realised lahlah didn't take pic with Gordon!)

I have no idea how Aaron did this awkward pose. It was as though his head was twisted or something HAHAHA.

My foot was so fking pain by the way. I broke my record of wearing my heels for a straight 14hours. I travelled around the whole of Singapore that day.
We took a cab home and I think I was on drugs by then. I WALKED BARE-FOOTED. 
Jia Min was saying she could feel my pain while the two NS man just abandoned us behind like this.

I remembered I was complaining to Jia Min didn't NS teach them to "leave no man behind?"
and Jia Min replied, "but they didn't teach them to leave no woman behind!"

And the best part of the experiences, putting aside my foot full of blisters, was that I knew all of us enjoyed ourselves that night. The importance of companion.
I was so happy when I looked through these pictures Aaron sent to me and when I read their blog posts.
Do check out Aaron's and Gordon's post here.

A great weekend indeed :D

After a Good Run

Yeah, my stamina sucks so I pant like crazy when I finally reached home. It has been century since the lazy me decided to drag myself out for a run.
Feeling refresh now though! :D
On a side note, my right eyelid feels heavy. Back to single eyelid. Dafuq :(

Kakak got me these beautiful strawberries and tadaa~
Yogurt time - healthy day with a good run and healthy food!

I feel good~! :D


As the title suggested, I'm going to do a blog post all about me.
I wanted to do this for a long time; I decided to pen them down so I could sort out my thoughts better too.

1. Phobia towards Phone Calls
I don't really know when this have developed. Perhaps phobia is way too an extreme word to put this across, but since this is the no. 1 confession I have made here, I wanted it to sound impactful. Meh.

Yes, I do like to interact with people. I believe it is a good source to learn more about lives and to gain more insights.
Okay, I do want to be there for my friends. Yet at times, I can't help it but to think phone calls are a total waste of time. Most of the time phone calls I had have no content. For most of my long chats over the phone, we would end up talking about the same damn thing over and over again, and back to square one. Things didn't improve. Perhaps we were in a too comfortable environment like lying on our bed - hence ended up engaging in endless senseless talks.
And the very reason that I don't really enjoy long chats? I'm not a someone who can multi-task well. If you know me well enough, you should have realised I actually couldn't perform that at all. The same thing for phone calls. When I talked with someone on phone, I usually don't engage in any other activity. Yes, literally sat down with just the phone. It's not a bad thing, giving your fullest attention. Yet, this has contributed to many of my nights just burnt like that. Too tired the next day, undone assignments, scoldings from parents and the list goes on that make me dislike phone calls a lot. Not really the process if you understand where I'm coming from.
And at times, sudden phone calls just disrupt my momentum of doing wahtever I am doing.
I do love texting though. I can attend to my phone any time I want.
Touching on this, I guess I can make another confession? My phone is always on silent non-vibrating mode. That's the very reason why I have one thousand and one complaints that I don't even answer the calls during emergency. :(

2. Emotionally Unstable
Many times, I felt like I don't know myself at all. This is normal for this period of time by the way. I'm still in the midst of exploring my identity. Sometimes it's quite bad I couldn't even identify my own emotions. Yes, most of the time I smile and laugh like I'm happy with life. When I was alone though, I always end up indulging in unhealthy thoughts. And yes, I enjoy time being alone. I enjoy that a lot. It's a good time to sort out certain emotions. I love Bucks by the way! Like I have told my dearest Nickie, I couldn't let go of certain terrible things that happened. Some things just can't be erased, can't be undone. I'm not too sure how many of you can relate to this. That aside, I am thankful for life - and that leading to my next confession.
I cry a lot too. Guess AJCSB would know this. :/ Yes, I don't hold them back when I'm comfortable with the people.

3. I'm a big fan of mother nature
Okay, maybe this isn't something so unique no more. Who doesn't love mother nature right?
I would rather take a longer route home - purposely a stop after so I could enjoy that short walk at the park, so I could enjoy the beautiful sunset.
Yes, I love beach. Be it the sight in the day, or at night, it feels different every time I pay them a visit. I love the sound of the wave. I enjoy socking my feet at the shore. Yes, I do collect seashells.
The very reason I love roller blading is because I am closer to the beach when I roller blade.

4. I have always wanted to master piano.
I know these 2 instruments are the most popular, and many of you know how to play them well. It's different on my side. I'm a slow learner, a very slow one. Plus I'm not a well-off family. I don't have the privilege to learn piano or ballet when I was younger. I'm trying to save up now though so I could afford the lessons, soon.
On a side note, I have terrible rhythmic sense and I'm guessing I might be a little tone deaf. Meh.
And that's the very reason, I have a thing for guys who can play piano well. It's a plus plus plus point!!

5. I'm a dreamer.
I'm not just talking about those dreams one would have at night/nap. I'm talking about day-dreaming here. By the way, I think my dreams at night are ridiculously funny. Sometimes I would force myself back to sleep so I could have a conclusion for my dream. LOL. Don't judge me.
I'm bad at remembering people names' and faces. Random.
If you do notice me when I'm alone, most of the time I would either plug in ear piece and stare blankly into the space, or out of the window; or reading a book. I like to imagine myself in different scenarios, playing different characters. And I like to relate to song lyrics. Yes, like being the female lead. All the time. I like to imagine having this big stage like a superstar. My mummy always says one doesn't need to pay to dream. HAHA.
And maybe instead of saying I'm a dreamer, I'm someone who think a lot. I meant it when I say a lot.

6. I'm a judgemental person
As much as being a social worker, I still do judge. I know it's unethical to do so. This was never made known to me only until recently. Social Work modules really allow me to understand myself, discovering my own weaknesses and strengths. I never know I judge so much; from my BFF's reactions to things, to total stranger who is taking the same train. And so now I know that I always do so subconsciously, I have to keep them in check. :)

7. I talk to myself in the mirror
Lastly, I wanna share something that is more positive about me. At least I perceive it that way. As weird as each sound, yes I do. I would look myself in the mirror, giving myself encouragements on long days or when I feel exhausted psychologically. It's one of my ways to reassure myself and so to push on. Sometimes I sing myself praises. Not so much about living in self-denial, but I guess everyone has to know their strengths which will give than more motivation in life!

These are the little 7 things I wanna confess about myself today.
Okay, I realised it's more about things I have discovered about myself. Guess it didn't really conflict with the supposed agenda so oh well.

How well do you know about yourself?
Do you notice yourself doing certain things/habits?
Have you tried justifying these actions? Do they tell something about you?
