Decided a proper update will be required to properly document the past 3 weeks of my life so here I am!
It has been a long, long time since my last post and it’s pretty embarrassing considering I publicly declared a one-post-a-week bullcrap in few of my earlier posts, but it’s okay. Sometimes you gotta wait for the good stuff. HAHAHA.
To be honest I’ve always kind of started on a post but I give up halfway because I have too many things to say, but I’m sitting here right now taking this very seriously.
If you were here two days ago, you’d have seen a pretty sad post but IT’S OKAY I AM OVER THAT.
Time to stop wallowing in self-pity (not that I was, really, throughout the week) and yeah, getting-sh!t-together in progress guys.
By the way I think I slept with a (or more) mosquito last night and now I have mosquito bites at so many strange places!!
Anyway the days have passed by in a blur – always busy with the same old things. But like CNY clothes, away with the old and in with the new: kicked one commitment away and brought in another!
It’s a huge burden off my shoulders as of now, and I’m not sure if I’ll ever regret doing this, but let’s look at instant gratification more often and perhaps it’ll be better in the long run too. Thank you to those for your unwavering support and kind words of encouragement – you are the best and sweetest :) Xiexie!
Really no point covering what has happened before this week right, so I’ll just jump straight to events this week!
School life has really been mundane – I guess the pressure is slowly but surely building up but I’m not exactly feeling the heat from As yet… so now I’m kind of in a daze and still floating my way through?!
I’m not sure if I’m the only one but CNY has increased the intensity of my state of limbo so I’m really not in a mood for work and I don’t want to return to school because the next break will be March holidays where crazy mugging begins :’(
Anyway Orientation has officially ended (especially after POP) and if you’re J1, welcome to the real deal!!
Okay la to be honest last year was spent in a daze as well but you’ll make it.
This is 14S7C and 15S7C with Ares’ kickass banner! FC put in crazy amount of love and effort and it turned out so dayum amazing – it’s very, very gorgeous. It is very sad to know that I’ll never be able to paint like that in a hundred years but ya everyone digs the banner la!!
This just directly links me to the point on POP which links me to CNY Celebration HAHA so I’m just going to jump there and tell you this year’s celebration was pretty great for me!! Spent the bulk of the celebration with elderly from Tembusu but managed to meet up with some precious people at the end of the event! Just going to insert Instagram collage here because it fits everything into one photo la ok so please appreciate it.
Really enjoyed watching POP also and it really brings back fond memories from the last year! I can literally still feel the adrenaline pumping before POP and how close I was to crapping my pants before release of results, and it’s so strange how something supposedly fun and enjoyable can become so incredibly nerve-wrecking. Very, very glad that Ares managed to secure the title again this year but as much as I love and support Ares dearly, it really broke my heart to see my dear friends from other faculties being so upset?!?!?!??! I love you forever and ever ok – there is so much more in the future to look forward to!!
Relatives from the paternal side are all over the world, really, and so CNY is always spent with mostly the same dear people whom I hold very close to my heart.
Ahma whipped up this great big feast on CNY eve and it was very very yummy. Also had the time of my life at the Karaoke room with my sister blasting my lungs out. She is really an amazing singer and I hope you’ll get to hear her live someday because if not, it’ll really be a pity. (On the contrary… let’s just say NYH is on the other end of the spectrum but he is still very lovely)
Most of the photos are taken during CNY and they form my SLP collection but here you go:
My Instagram has a family photo, so if you’re keen you can check that out.
Nicky and Chloe are the most adorable pair of sisters ever. They really really make me so happy (just by seeing them) and I wish I could have stayed over at NYH’s house longer to play with them. They’re the cutest and loveliest and they have the BEST and most creative outfits! AHHHH I LOVE THEM
Also visited Gardens by the Bay, CNY edition and I think the Christmas one was more outstanding and generally nicer? But please enjoy a picture of my Ahma who really loved looking at all the flowers.
Singapore looks super pretty at night too :)
Ate at Satay by the Bay this time, and I really have to say, food at GbtB aint that great?! Will probably not return for a long time now, but please recommend good food choices if you know any within the area!
Caught 3 movies this holiday:
- Ah Boys to Men 3: Frogmen
- From Vegas to Macau II
- Dragon Blade
Above is according to merit. ABTM3 was really better than expected – sometimes maybe it’s better not to have any expectations at all.
Also wanted to publish this somewhere: Thank you for all your love this Valentine’s. Many people don’t have good things to say about it, but Vday isn’t really only about your S/O but also dear friends and family around? Thank you so much for dealing with me (especially this period when I’m extremely nonsensical and have insane mood swings) and being patient!! Just want to let y’all know that I’ll always be here for you, if anything!
If we don’t interact at all in the real world, thank you for showing interest and reading through my bullcrap hehe. Please be my friend when you see me because as much as I’m socially awkward/socially inept, I try my best ok. Don’t give up on me.
But also special shoutout to this little boy for being here and dealing with me (FIRST DEGREE BURN) all the time! Thanks for being here even when I’m being unreasonable (it’s a female’s forte) or petty or basically being a terrible soul :( Ahh have so much to say to you but that’ll have to do for now on this public platform.
And bonus three flowers – I know you supporting your council buddies but still thank you for the thought la!!
And these flowers are really special (pls don’t laugh even though it looks like it’s in a bucket ok I KNOW YOU ARE LAUGHING, STOP IT)
Thank you guys for reading today’s post – more than a thousand words worth!
Oh before you leave, do you mind filling this up for me?
Bringing this back! Again!
I REALLY CANNOT UNDERSTAND HOW PEOPLE CHOOSE SWEET OVER SALTED. I refuse to believe that there is no one who prefers salted popcorn!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy Chinese New Year! I hope you had a great break and managed to cut down your sleep deficit and spend time with your loved ones :)
Till next time, tata~
