Growing Stupid

While it's only human nature to grow up and wiser, I feel that... I am going backwards. Not like Benjamin Buttons (X) of course...

I am still growing old by the year, but not any wiser... In fact, there are many times I feel like I am more stupid than the day before..., the month before... and sigh more stupid than the year before! I don't know how is this possible?

I guess this is the aftereffect of growing up and slowly growing lazy. We stop learning as much as when we were in school. Maybe it's work that is not only sucking away all our life, youth and joy in life... It's making us more stupid. Especially when we stop learning on the job and just.... work.

I cannot pin point when and why I feel stupid, but it happens. SIGH.

A Denim Date


Me, my gummy smile, and my beautiful girlfriends.
Earlier today, out on a denim date! ♥


Ever since these 2 ladies got employed, we hardly get to meet up with them both together.
It's an 'either or' situation now. Thanks to their erratic schedule. :(

But I'm glad we had some time today for a quick afternoon together! ^^
Pity Shan wasn't free. :( It would have been a perfect afternoon then!


Denim-themed and I love it!
That's the easiest for me to match. hehe.



Had lunch at POMO's Montana Singapore and tried really interesting waffles!
No pictures, but we had Bulgogi Beef with Kimchi Waffle and Red Velvet Waffle with ice cream!
A savory dish and a dessert, perfect for our afternoon.

The Beef Bulgogi with kimchi waffle was surprisingly good? Surprising and actually good; It actually tasted like... Kimchi pancake? But nicer because the meat is beef and it's a waffle not flat pancake, more texture. Then again, now that I am typing it out, I guess it was just surprising that it was nice because I did not think it would be? Since they could just use kimchi pancake mixture to make waffles..... The Red Velvet is one of the nicest I have tried! And I've tried just 2 so far. Haha. :X


This shot is so random, but so cute. (I mean me hahahahahahahha)

After lunch, we wanted to take photos so we walked around and chanced upon a nice wall at SOTA~ So more photos! Then we went shopping.







John came to find us in-between for a bit. Took more photos walking. Lol.
Can always trust to have plenty of shots with Karena around.

&Then, to more shopping!


Here's Jo and I while waiting for Karena to try on some new clothes.


&That was it. A simple Sunday out with a couple of my favourite friends. ♥

Life is good enough like that.

KL Again!


KL again with the family! ❤️
KL again in less than a month. ✌️
All in time to get new clothes for Chinese New Year. Heh.

Rode 4 hours in a private 7-seater car and finally reached our apartment!! Located right beside, one of our favourite malls, Mid-Valey. It's so huge that we don't need to go anywhere else to get everything we want. :)


tadaaaah




Grandma and her helper was with us this time too.




Always love staying in an apartment because of the common living area you get, to hangout with whoever you're travelling with, while still having your own bedroom. Like.... you don't have to go to the other person's room to chill and stuff, just hey! living room.


There'll be a spacious kitchen too! Not that we ever use this in KL.


Our bedroom shared with grandma and her helper.



Washed up and headed out to shop shop shop! ^^


Had to get these again!! A good break from our shopping.



And that was day 1. Shopped and ate well before heading back to our room and this night, sister and I went to sing karaoke!
It's so much more afforable there! Sigh, all the prices increasing here now.


This is at 3am and was kindda creepy when we were heading back to our apartment.


Mother's birthday was the day and we got her a strawberry tart the next day!
Mainly because I wanted to try it. :X Lol.

Second celebration after the one we had in December~


So sweet right?
Cake from the helpers; Explains why 'Aunty Leong Viny'. I never understood why my mother had to use 'Viny' for her facebook/email account. LOL.

2
♥ Are you team red or team blue? Lol.



My parents are like as if they are 'Benjamin Button', looking younger as they age. I wish it'll be the same for me too! Though I think I have an old-looking face since I was 16 and hasn't changed. Lol.



&Back to our KL trip!


Second day of shopping!
This is us in a changing room. :)


&Had dinner with family in Malaysia. :)


In-charge of the baby that evening too...
And was so happy that I got my new pair of Skechers. One I have been eyeing. HEH. I'd wanted the grey and turqoise one, but Malaysia didn't have it. T_T But oh well, at least it is cheaper than getting it in Singapore. :X


A homemade durian cake our relatives prepared for le mother.
Third cake this year, YAY for me. :X

This was SO good! There was so much of durian flesh! I had to have 2 servings of it!
Mother got them to bring the remaining home though. HMPF!
And our apartment had the lingering durian smell. Mm mm..... ♥




My shopping haul this time!
YAY to more clothes~
A lot cheaper in Malaysia too! Since it's a Malaysia brand. I think most of them are half the price of what is sold in Singapore. Pretty insane...


&I'm done here.

It was a good break from work, though December was a very chill period in office; As long as you get to not work for a few days, vacations are awesome! :p

Wide Awake

It is 04:29am right now; I should be sound asleep like everyone else in the room, but I am wide awake.

Too wide awake.

I know it is bad for health to be up till this late, it's extremely harmful for my eyes too, but I can't help it today.

My eyes are feeling tired... So tired..

I've tried putting myself to sleep, but only managed to silently toss and turn on the bed for 2 hours while listening to everyone sleep. My brain is too active right now, and she's not allowing sleep to happen. At all. :( I had many random thoughts within that 2 hours, and made many plans about life which I won't be following through when I wake up tomorrow. Lol.

Unsure if it's because of that brief nap I took earlier today that's causing this... :/

Anyway!! I could continue try staying in bed motionless to coax my mind to sleep, but someone in the room is feeling very hungry and I can hear it between snores. Lol.

My guess who?
I think it's grandma.. :X

It was rumbling so loudly, so many times, that it made me hungry too......... So, yes I am out in the living room because I am feeling hungry and too awake to sleep. Munching on a slice of bread while typing my thoughts now. Heh.

I'm not giving up on sleep though! While answering to my hunger and clearing my train of thoughts, I am also streaming some creepy, soothing, calming and therapeutic songs from Spotify's 'Deep Sleep' playlist...

.
.
.

It's been 35 minutes, and clearly, these music aren't helping...........

Oh wait. Am I suppose to be listening to them while laying in bed and eyes closed?

The Afternoon I Saw Elvin Ng

OMG OMG OMG!!!
I AM SO STAR STRUCK RIGHT NOW!! 😍😍😍

I LITERALLY JUST SAW ELVIN NG AND I CANNOT CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT!!! HE WAS JUST RANDOMLY SHOPPING IN THE SAME BAKERY I WAS IN...

I WAS MINDING MY OWN BUSINESS UNTIL I LOOK UP AND SAW THAT BEAUTIFUL FACE(&SMILE) AND HEAR THAT NICE DEEP VOICE~~~

OMG!!!! I WAS SO STAR STRUCK THAT I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO REACT WHEN HE APOLOGIZED TO ME TWICEEEE, FIRST TIME BECAUSE HE THOUGHT HE WAS BLOCKED MY VIEW AND THEN LATER BLOCKING MY WAY. AWWWW...

I FROZE THERE NOT BEING ABLE TO MAKE A SOUND. DAMMIT!!

Today is also the day I have to officially acknowledge that I am a retard. Lol. I am a retard who is unable to think on her feet and react to situation quickly. My brain is not fast enough and it takes too bloody long to process some things. 😅

Reminds me of the time I was holding on a bowl of cup noodles and accidentally spilled it all over me when I sat down on the sofa. Guess what was my first reaction? Error 404: NOT FOUND! I literally just sat there looking at my sister not realizing that the hot soup was burning my butt! Needless to say, one side of my butt was indeed quite burnt.... There were blisters and yeah..

Wait, how did we come to this butt story again..............?


This is he, by the way. ♥
I think he looks way more handsome in real life, and omg, his smile~

Lunch With Chiulee!


Our mudpie!

A different lunch today, I met up with Chiulee for a nice meal at O' Coffee Club.

Quick catchup during the hour as she filled me up with her new experience in camp! So happy she's doing something she wants and enjoys. It is.. somewhat rare? To know what you want and actually do what you enjoy.

I hope I find something soon too.

Starting 2016 With Fireworks!



IT IS 2016 !!!

Can't remember when was the last time I watched fireworks for countdown, but last night was pretty................ crowded. LOL.

Spent the last bits of 2015 with Jolene, Haniza and Chiulee.

What a different combo?
Indeed..

But it was nice. Different can sometimes be refreshing. It was also the first time Haniza saw a different side of me... Or so she said. Hahaha. I am a lot crazier and lame with the clique. Haniza kindda makes me more toned down. I never knew.. Until last night. Lol. Fun fact about myself to end a great year. ;)


This is us outside *Scape. Last few shots together~

ANYWAY!
Met up in town and had dinner at a Thai fusion restaurant in Orchard Central; Som Tam X. Dinner started out a little awkward. Food was good, I'm not that big a fan of Thai cuisine, but the food was good. Obviously cannot remember what we'd ordered. But I know we had a variety of items to share.. There was salad! Pardon the memory, girl here blogging this in 2017. :X

Back to the awkwardness. Though Chiulee knows Haniza beforehand (thanks to a coincidental diving trip!), and though all my friends pretty much know all my friends (just.. who they are, not anything beyond that), it was still a little... weird at first. But nothing time cannot change!


The shot with Jolene in the middle....... I have no idea why, but it looks as if Chiulee and I were taking a shot with a celebrity? Lol.


There weren't much to do after dinner so we just roamed around the mall, around town and waited for time to pass. Chiulee left early because... I can't remember why, but she left early. So it was just Jolene, Haniza and myself, for the rest of the year and the start of the year. ;)

Headed down to Marina Bay Sands when time was near and found an.... okay spot for fireworks viewing.

It was a beautiful sight, seeing the sky light-up as the clock ticks off to the new year... Somehow feels like it is signifying that the year would be beautiful too.... It's important how something ends, but it's also as important how something starts! 2015 was a really good year. Simple start, very fulfilling journey and a great end. A lot of fun. And I hope, 2016 would be the same... If not better.

I would want especially, to become a better person this year. :)


&to remain close knitted with some of the best people in my life~ ♥


One of the better shots I took. It was so smokey!


Us among the crazy crowd..

It was nice watching the fireworks, but the squeezing with people was not so fun.
Singapore is a terrible place for any sight-seeing. SO HUMID!


When the crowd slowly dispersed. We just stayed there....
Continued to absorbed the energy of the new year...

I always say this, but I have to repeat it again: It's amazing how the year just changes in a split second. First you're in 2015, and once that second hand needle on the clock go pass midnight... poof! It's 2016.



&here, I'm done!
