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!
