The Vampire Diaries has gone bonkers. In fact, it has been on a downward spiral since mid-Season 3, but I love it anyway. No matter how many hiatuses I take, I always end up returning and having a marathon, then it’s back to the painful waiting for a new episode every week.
I tend to never finish dramas because they can’t hold my short attention span, let alone follow them for so long. Six seasons and four years (I started watching only a year after its pilot). I’m still here.
Some things never change and some things you simply don’t stop loving.
Some thing always brings me back to you. It never takes too long.
Even when the show is completely crazy and the writing has gone to shit. Seasons 4 and 5 had the worst plots ever because who cares about travellers and the cure? Not me! I thought the one about the Augustine vampires was great but it didn’t last… just like any new potential characters they introduce and then kill off within a few episodes.
Maybe now I’m just watching for Delena and the regular characters who I care very much about… Following Season 6 now and I cried during both episodes wtf. The whole show is one never-ending funeral. I just want everyone to be happy.
Freaking heartbreaking 5×22 finale with a perfect soundtrack WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT.
I completely forgot about me hating the previous episodes where practically everyone got killed off because they were all going to return together anyway (damn pointless and just for the shock factor) and loads of other reasons (like I said, I forgot after the epic finale).
And 5×11 was no doubt one of the best episodes ever. Everyone, even Jenna and John, came back, be it through flashbacks or as ghosts. How not to cry???
Anyway before Season 6 aired, the cast were asked to make three statements about what’s going to happen for their characters. Two of them would be lies and one would be the truth:
I so wanted the one about Alaric and Elena being in a romantic relationship?!!?!? LOL already knew that was a lie but a girl can dream.
Unfortunately, the Season 6 premiere wasn’t great… We have a druggy Elena, Jeremy who doesn’t give a fuck, a perpetually angry Tyler, yada yada yada. Everyone’s apart and grieving in their own ways :(
Elena has now gotten Alaric to compel her to forget Damon. This ship will be the death of me. I’m only not as pissed as I should be cos I cling onto the belief that they will find their way back to each other. After all, it’s not the first time we are getting our hearts ripped out by such rubbish. Sire bond, anyone?
A rare moment where they actually look happy and are not interrupted… but hey guess what, it’s not real. I’m only still holding on by reminding myself that their relationship is a marathon and not a sprint. I’ve already waited five seasons, what’s more?
Lol I don’t even know the point of this post… I just have a lot of feelings.
You know how they say that if something is too good to be true, it probably isn’t? Well, I found out that isn’t always the case.
On Wednesday (Oct 8), some guy bought $100 worth of clothes from me on Carousell. 30 pieces to be exact. Way below the prices I bought them at but I’m desperate to get rid of them (especially considering my upcoming travels). Didn’t mind giving a huge discount on top of the already dirt cheap prices either since it was a bulk purchase.
A huge pile of stuff I put up for sale. Turned out he was planning to sell them overseas (I don’t care what people do with my stuff after purchase).
I thought he was trolling at first, especially considering how easygoing and not fussy he seemed to be, with minimal questions about the clothes themselves. I even asked for a deposit at first because I didn’t want to pack everything and go to the meeting point, only for him to MIA. Plus his account was unverified and empty.
But I didn’t in the end because he suddenly asked if we could meet up before even confirming what he wanted. After I explained to him how the sale worked, he just picked what he wanted and I quoted him the price. He didn’t even haggle further!
At that time I still didn’t take him seriously… Until he said he was at Khatib already then did I start packing the items and practically sprinted to the MRT Station. Which means he wasn’t just real, but also waited for a panting, sweaty and very late me.
After the deal and on the way home, I started to wonder if the two $50 notes he gave me were fake. I even considered buying something at NTUC to swop the notes and get rid of “incriminating evidence”. But my dad confirmed that the money’s authenticity hahaha.
If you are on Carousell, you would know that apparel is one of the hardest things to sell because the supply way exceeds the demands. Love it when people buy in bulk. It’s a really great platform for selling old stuff! Don’t even need to spend time creating a website.
Have had my account for over a year but never actually posted the links on my social media accounts. I also don’t know why. Click on the photo above to browse my items (and hopefully buy)!!!!
The following day, I met up with another buyer and he kept calling me ‘bro’ through texts… Too bad I had to eventually tell him I was in a dress for us to identify each other because I really wanted to see his reaction when he realised I wasn’t a dude.
Just some very random OOTDs from work. Except that they are not really OOTDs since I have been very lazy to dress up and just throwing whatever I can find together…
Bought this shirt for $10 on Carousell just because of the print :D I really love rodents!!!
I don’t like harassing people and getting them to take photos for me. Sadly, the next closest thing I have is the full length mirror in my office toilet. The pail and the mop are forever there to photobomb me…
Me in jeans… hahaha. That’s supposed to be a rare sight. Actually I wear dresses 95% to work of the time but none of the photos here show that.
This has got to be the cheapest outfit ever:
- $1 knitted top (am wearing another singlet inside though I can’t remember how much it was)
– $2 Cotton On skirt
– $6 Mitju shoes
– $8 Hello Kitti bag
Noor said my top was very nice and feeling the material but she got a shock when I told her how much I got it for. I believe in cheap, nice, and quality all in the same equation lol.
Love that there’s a gym in the office that staff are free to use and I love it even more when it’s empty. Unfortunately I don’t go as much as I used to anymore.
Can’t believe that it’s October already! So much excitement coming up!!! Can’t wait for Bangkok and Hong Kong in November. Going on a road trip to KL/Malacca in December. I can’t stop reading blog entries about travelling!! Meanwhile I will satisfy my shopaholism by shopping online.
Do you know that Zalora is having a Singapore fashion sale? Loads of gorgeous items up for grabs from unbelievable prices as low as $6 for shoes!!! So in love with their products *_*
Hello!! Kinda happy to be blogging regularly again ^^ Actually this post was meant to be up days ago and about one single day but I am really busy so am gonna do a round-up of the past week as usual.
Super stressed and frazzled and overworked actually. I was so tired on Thursday night that I fell asleep on my parents’ bed right after dinner for about 3 hours. Left the office at close to 8pm today even though I was on the regular shift. But it’s little moments like these that makes it worthwhile :D
Hahaha screenshots of emails sent by my Editor (thank you… am happy to be working under you. Hope he’s not reading this though lol) on various days. I know they look the same. I was too lazy to screenshot properly plus everything else in the emails is confidential.
Wednesday (Sep 17)
Visited this cafe called Shrove Tuesday with colleagues during lunch. I like the gelato ice cream there but I find it kinda pricey for a place located in a HDB neighbourhood. Especially with waffles. Prices here.
Their teas are super fragrant though! I had their peach honeycomb together with Sea Salt Caramel ice cream in a waffle bowl. Previously I tried Mao Shan Wang ice cream on a regular waffle and iced mocha.
Met up with Ling Yue at Mac’s after work and Darren Toh was a super good sport to join us :P She had asked for directions to their hair dye shop in Batam after reading my post and found it! So now I have hair dye again yay.
Sorry not sorry to all the people we bitched about and went to stalk. Also she needs to stop mentioning how xxx wrote my birthday on his room wall to remember the date because that was at least 6 years ago and she only told me few months back so I was like WTF.
Reached home at 10pm, showered at 1am, slept at 4am… that’s how messed up my schedule is.
Tuesday (Sep 18)
My brother dropped a hanger right onto my laptop and the K key flew out -_- Meme potential. Gonna reply with this photo when I wanna K someone now hahaha. And yes the key is still unattached…
Anyway, it was a day off from work so it was super relaxing and minimal productivity!! Wow really need more days like these. Often even when I’m not working, I still spend time doing stuff or worrying about something so it’s rarely a 100% day off.
Chilled at Starbucks for ages with Yu Kai. Ordered green tea cream for the first time but it was so sweet that I downed 2 cups of iced water and kept going to the loo… ugh. When will my salted caramel frappe come back?!??!!
Love this oyster mee sua at Causeway Point!! Yu Kai doesn’t eat oysters so I always get double wahaha super shiok. Bought $10 worth of bread, $8 worth of fried finger food and 14 tako balls at $4 home for family afterwards lol.
Sunday (Sep 14)
Went to Expo with my family and had dinner at the food fair. This mao shan wang ice cream is the bomb okay?!?!? I love durians. Quite pricey at $3 per cup so I always avoided it and satisfied myself with the samples. But nah, not this time. Oh gosh, now I want more…
Won two goodie bags from another fair next door. Walked in and they were having a Q&A about Singapore’s history. I simply Googled the answers muahaha. Would have answered a third question but aiya give chance la :3
They was a Popular fair too and all English books were going at Buy 2 and Get 3 Free!!!! I was in heaven. Got these 5 books for $18. That thick collection of horror stories was only $4 and Frankenstein was $8 even though it had a leather cover and gold-rimmed pages!!!
I wanted to buy another 5 more but didn’t have time, sigh. Wanted to pick 5 expensive ones that were close in price and 5 cheap ones that were close in price for a better deal haha.
Saw this too and NO I didn’t buy it.
Went home for awhile then went to JB with Chris. And that’s where the title of this post comes in because I tried this drink for the very first time…
As the straw suggests, it’s called Graveyard. Heard about it but never tried it. It’s supposedly vvv strong to the point of knocking you out. But I decided to try it anyway just for fun. Didn’t think I would KO but was worried that I couldn’t wake up for work the next morning,
Just so you know, it tastes like crap and yet was RM10 more expensive than all the other drinks on the menu. And nope, not my poison either as I was still very much sober even after finishing the whole glass, albeit a bit buzzed.
And this was actually after I finished my Long Island Tea… which tastes 100x better hahaha.
Buffalo wings. Not bad but zero spiciness sigh I miss Sunset Grill.
Was in very high spirits (no pun intended). Another work-free day spent chilling and having good conversations. Feeling so fortunate and thankful for all the good things and positivity in my life.
Currently watching Meteor Garden 2 and reading Eclipse but my pace is really slow because to be honest, they are not very exciting or interesting. I rarely watch movies anymore. Everything these days is “just okay”. I want to be blown away.
And yes I put on weight because life is simply so enjoyable lol shushhhh.
