Meet my younger brother, Dingwei! He is one of my best ootd photographer ~
I always look forward to inflight entertainment, and one brownie point for Cathay for having 2 broke girls on board!
Another brownie point for great selection of music
We stayed at Centre Point Petchburi, the hotel underwent a renovation so everything was much better than the previous time I stayed (Not that it wasn't already great before)
My kind of breakfast to wake up to
SabX2 Pratunam Wanton Noodles
4/32-33 Soi Petchburi 19, Pratunam, Bangkok, Thailand
Opening Hours: 9am – 4pm Daily
The famous wanton noodles which I didn't know how to appreciate.
I was so upset that we didn't have much time to shop at Chatuchak and the rainy weather made it worse. Daddy decided to humor me and we went on a search for the coconut ice cream and tadahhhhhhhhhh
A short 4D3N trip to Bangkok with my brother and parents, I am so glad I decided to tag along on this trip. It wasn't like my previous trips to Thailand where I came back with bags of clothes but it was a great trip. I had such a good time bonding with my brother and parents, especially my mum. Bangkok, you'll always have my heart and I hope I'll be back soon.

It irks me so much when people uses the word 'promise' so loosely, why can't people keep to their promises. If you do not think that you can keep to it then don't fucking make it in the first place. Yes I have been made a victim of it recently and it really affected me a lot to the extent that I don't even harbor any hopes on any future plans be it a promise or just a causal remark. Having too much time on hand is toxic for me, I tend to spend my free time over-thinking and all the negativity is doing me no good. I'm also having a major money crisis and being jobless isn't helping the situation at all. Here I am writing that I'm tight on cash and on the other hand you see me posting on my trips to cafe on Instagram and at the same time planning on my overseas trips, yes I am ridiculous. I have limit myself to only going to cafes once every fortnightly hoping to cut down on my expenses. As for my overseas trips, I have been planning it for the longest time and I am very determined to make it happen so there's no way anyone can talk me out of it. I have no idea how my friends who are of the same age as me have started a family and balloting for a house; sometimes I feel that everyone is growing up but me. In my defense, they have a job while I am still searching for one. It is depressing that I have yet to receive any calls for a interview. It's scary that people around me have started another phase in their lives while I'm still at the exact same spot where we all once were almost 5 months ago. I am 22 years old, I'm supposed to be having a job I love and pays well, do lots of travelling, buying things I've always dreamed of etc and everything isn't happening because I don't have a job; money is so important and clearly the person who said money can't buy happiness doesn't have dreams and wants in life.

One Man Coffee
215R Upper Thomson Road
- I only tried their tea and I can't wait to go back there again to there their mains.
233 Upper Thomson Road
Group Therapy Cafe
30 East Coast Road, Katong V, #01-11
- Food wasn't to my liking, I ordered the wrong stuff because I've friends who went and said their other food is really good.
Akashi Japanese Restaurant
290 Orchard Road, Paragon #B1-01/02
- I'm so in love with their Cha Soba and their food is really affordable, there's a price difference in their lunch and dinner menu which offers the same stuff so do go in the afternoon if you can!
Don Dae Bak
35 Kreta Ayer
- I have no idea why did I even dragged bby to have Korean bbq with me since I'm quite an unpredictable eater (on some days I can survive with just one meal but on some I have to eat every 2 hours),and that day I didn't eat much because I was really sick of the meats. We went for buffet and their beef was soooo good and they offer a la carte too and the menu looks really good! we paid $47 for two pax.
15 Jalan Riang
- I'm slowly warming up to the idea of waffles and pancakes, I used to dislike waffles and pancakes but for the past few months I've found myself craving for both of it often. I have a few waffle places that I want to go, can't wait! Wimbly Lu serves really delicious waffles and another brownie point for them because they serves my favorite cider and there's not many places in Singapore that has it!
Am I the only person in the world that takes multiple shots of the same stuff and end up having to clear my phone for space as often as 3 weeks once?!!? What makes me so frustrated is that once I've chosen the best shot I don't delete the rest of it because it look good too, my hard disk, laptop and phone are always running out of space! I'm leaving on a jet plane tomorrow, I just updated my travel playlist in my Itouch and next on the agenda is to update this space so here's what I've been eating if you haven't already seen it on my Instagram. I'm not particularly excited for this trip because I'll be travelling with my parents, I really had a hard time deciding whether I should tag along because my mum is not the best travelling companion. In my life the highs are really highs and the lows are really lows, there's no in between and it's really exhausting. I really need a breather and there's no way better than a getaway even if it's with my parents which I know we can all have fun together if we just compromise and have a little more patience with each other. Here's to having the best weekends before the month ends x

Flowers are my weakness, I want to receive it everydayyyyyyyy. I dislike it when people tell me it's impractical, I could write an essay on its beauty.Valentine's Day at Pepperoni Pizzeria.
Annual Valentine's Day gift exchange and lunch with the girls at Cafe Melba.
So much has changed over a year, last year on Valentine's Day I was moping around at home and I stayed clear of all social media platform because I knew it would make me a lot worse. This year, I was really blessed to not only received a bouquet of flowers (This bouquet did not come easy) but I also had the chance to spend it with B*. We had dinner at our usual spot, nothing fancy just the two of us which was enough to make me smile all night. I really dislike it when people say that this day is overrated blah blah and how things such as prices of meals and flowers are so expensive. Yes, it's an expensive occasion but this is the only day girls get to feel extra special. Some girls are in a relationship where they may not get much love from their partner ( yes they have a choice to leave but love is complicated) and this is the only day where they finally get to feel the love even though it might be an act or just mandatory to 'celebrate' it. I'm not saying that I'm one of those girls, B* show his love through his everyday actions and sometimes he surprises me by making me mixtapes etc. He doesn't buy me flowers on random days because flowers are impractical to him and I really love flowers so on this day I get to receive it!!! What's not to love about Valentine's Day (when you're attached) haha. Had a belated Valentine's Day lunch with Rachel, Yiling and Karen. We do gift exchanges every year and even though gift shopping is never easy but I like how we always put in the effort to make each other feel loved, not just on this day but every day. Thank you Karen for the gift, I know you had a hard time finding a gift for me and I'm soooo in love with my clutch!

Club Street Social
5 Gemmill Lane
The scrambled egg is so delicious!!!!!
I've been wanting to go Club Street Social ever since Jie went and last week I finally headed down with the Bel and Yans! I love the ambiance of the place, I have a thing for brick walls and concrete floor. It's the last day of February already, time is passing by too fast and I think I spent 90% of February doing nothing productive. Hopefully the month of March will open up more job opportunities for me and at the same time bring me fulfillment.

5 Simon Road
Bel and I decided to bake on Monday and I have no idea how did the cookies turned out so ugly but it tasted good. Bel recently got employed and we thought she should make good use of her time this week for cafe hopping since she wouldn't have the time once she starts work. We headed to Lola's and the food wasn't good but I've heard that their wings are delicious and do avoid the weekend crowd. I'm meeting Bel tmr, yes again, I'm really going to miss hanging out with her and yans on a weekday!!! My friends are slowly getting hired and it really scares me a lot but guess it takes awhile for companies to reply and I believe God has a better plan for me.
