So so so happy and in love with life! I have so much to look forward to and all the excitement feels almost unreal because everything is happening consecutively.
☆ 2-day course at Supreme Court
Attended a media judicial training course at the Supreme Court and it was so interesting. I actually wished the sessions were longer because I felt that it was a bit too rushed. We also got a tour (omg this place has the most gorgeous views ever of MBS and the skyline but sadly photography is not allowed).
But the most exciting part was sitting in on a hearing for a drug trafficking case at the Court of Appeal (the highest court)!! Feel so lucky being able to get such an opportunity.
Last year during another course, I got to watch a City Harvest Church case and sat right behind the defendants (Kong Hee, Serina Wee etc). Really epic and intense!!
Anyway I can’t believe there were people who saw the photo I posted on social media and thought I was in trouble/getting sued… You can be at court for more than just fighting lawsuits, you know?
I don’t usually reply texts so early or fast but I wanted to clarify before any rumours started.
☆ Birthday and long weekend
Have you ever seen a smoother cake? I think it has a better complexion than me hahaha.
Nothing like a birthday to remind you of how loved and fortunate you are. Thank you to everyone who I spent the past few days with! And they are all family and friends who have been in my life for years and always there for me. I’ve known so many people who come and go but these are the keepers ❤
Actually quite touched that while everyone in the office usually gets pranked for their birthdays, my editor actually gave me preview tickets to Doctor Strange.
Karaoke on Friday night with Amos (whose birthday is a day after mine), Linus, Yixuan and Jiayi was epic too because I suggested singing for four hours till 2am (time still flew by though!) despite having work the next morning. Damn spontaneous la cos everything was booked and everyone said ok less than 10 minutes after Linus first suggested the idea.
No pics from here on because the rest below haven’t happened~
☆ Sponsored 4D3N It’s The Ship festival-cruise
I’m going for work and there’s quite a bit to do but I am going to eat and drink and have as much fun as I can hehehe. There’s a stop in Penang too! Can’t freaking wait to see my Royal Carribean cabin which is worth $2,000 and comes with a balcony.
Wheee I love my job!!! Feel like I’m always getting the luxurious trips LOL I don’t think I can ever forget flying business class with Air NZ to Auckland. It was the best.
☆ 3 days of courses
Immediately after I get back, it’s one course after another which gives me time to work on the post-cruise stuff too so yay! Hope there’s free food provided muahaha.
☆ Google News Lab workshop at their new office
Farah and I are going to Google Singapore’s new office for a workshop, hurray!!!
☆ Award presentation
It’s for the website and not for myself, but we are winning two awards for products that I’m in charge of and I toiled for the award submissions too. So this is really rewarding and just makes me love what I do even more.
☆ MMA event coverage
We are one of the partners so we always get media passes whenever there’s a big match. The last two times we went were all a lot of fun and excitement!
☆ Tokyo trip
Personal holiday and my first time to Japan so I can’t wait. It will just be 8 days in Tokyo because I have so much going on both before and after I return.
Feeling so incredibly happy, blessed and lucky. More next time! Gotta go to sleep now because we are sending my brother off to Tekong tomorrow. Omg time really flies!

Back from Korea!! Went to Jeju Island, Seoul, Nami Island + Petite France and the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ). It was autumn there so the scenery and weather was perfect. Thankful for my shiny new iPhone that helped me take so many pretty pictures 😛
I didn’t shop as much as I usually do because they were mostly selling winter wear and cosmetics, both of which I have no use for. But no worries because shopping is not a seasonal thing and I can do it even from home, thanks to Zalora. Like its Cotton On Body range… I don’t even have to get my ass to the physical store, ha!
Food was great but honestly after travelling to so many places, I still love our local fare best. Which is why the moment I landed at Changi Airport, I went to Kopitiam to eat this:
Can you believe this is the queue for the drinks stall at 4pm??? It goes all the way behind… Had to queue equally long for both my mini wok noodles and teh peng. But cravings satisfied so I’m not complaining.
Anyway, that was on Friday. Not sure where my Saturday went (sleeping?)… Had brunch with mi familia at Red Star Dim Sum Restaurant on Sunday and stuffed myself silly.
Very interesting because the waitresses go around pushing carts of food instead of you ordering from a menu and waiting for the food to be served. So you just take whatever you want and the staff will jot it down on your bill each time.
We ordered even more after these ~.~ Including a plate of roast duck (not pictured). Everything was so yummy though!! I wish I had more stomach space. Total bill came up to $157 for 4 of us which I think is reasonable.
This paper wrapped chicken (纸包鸡) is heaven.
Mango pudding drenched in coconut milk. Think I have eaten back all the calories I burned while hiking in Jeju. What I would give to be back there and climbing mountains…
Btw, moved all my depressing posts to a separate blog where I can write whatever I want instead. Honestly? Not feeling so great. But I (have to) get through each day anyway…
