On my way home from the office, I am extremely exhausted. The journey back home is going to take me an hour plus, the nearest station to my office is haw paw villa ( yes, extremely far for me ) I should probably stop typing because everything posted online can be used against you, somehow, someday. Maybe it's all so tough because I'm still learning the ropes, maybe I'm just not cut out for this industry...

I've had a rather intense week, if you haven't already know I've officially stepped into working life. Gone were the days I wake up near noon, cafe hopping on a weekdays and having the freedom of spending my time as how I want it. It's still too early to say that I love my job but I've learnt a lot during my first week there. Everyday I face new challenges at work and yes it gets really stressful but I kinda love how it gives me the opportunity to learn. As compared to my peers, my job may not have the best welfare nor is it a high pay job but one thing I know for sure, this job will get me where I always dream of. This week I have a lot to be thankful for, thankful for God's grace and the love I received from my friends and boyfriend. They keep me going when work got really tough and when I was on the brink of giving up. The next 2 weeks will only bring much more challenges, I'm so excited yet scared. Hopefully I'll survive all the craziness in the next 2 weeks. X

You know how we always sweep all those unpleasant things under the rug and everyday we keep telling ourselves that if we did that it's all going to be okay. All those feelings and things I've kept hidden underneath it came surfacing back yesterday and it's been haunting me ever since. I don't know how to face all of it on my own and honestly I have no idea who I can talk to about it without being called 'crazy' and in the end I'll be back to sqaure one again. I've tried to solve all my problems on my own, I've tried all I could to protect everything I treasured and I thought I could be selfless but it's not working out. I'm tired. I'm tired of lying to myself.

Kreme Couture Bakery
The bakery that I wanted to order the cupcakes and edible icing sheets from could not rush out the order before Bby's birthday so I had to resort to buying the cupcakes and edible icing sheets separately. I had to take out some of the frosting (Which was really delicious) before I could put the edible icing sheet on the cupcakes. Edible icing sheets are from Cuppycakes and I was really pleased with how the designs I provided them turned out so clear and true to colors.
There's just too many superheroes in this photo haha.
I was too excited to surprise bby with the cupcakes that I completely forgotten that he dislike cupcakes -.-
Roosevelt's Diner & Bar
#01-02, Dorsett Residences, 331 New Bridge Road
Happy birthday bby! I wish for the rest of the year to bring you lots of joy. This October you will finally ORD and I pray that you'll be blessed with courage, wisdom and strength as you embark on this new chapter of your life. I love you!

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
