Bad decisions make good stories. And I always have a good story.

Till I fall asleep

Lower half of my body has been aching so badly the past two days because I booked a fitness class on the KFit app on Monday night without knowing what it was. There was no description but it was very near my house so I decided to check it out.

Turned out to be a bootcamp!!! It was just me and one other (very fit-looking) girl and the trainer. Felt like puking after the class wtf… I haven’t exercised in months because no time and no energy so I guess my stamina is shit again.

Ok but I am determined to use KFit more and not waste money… Plus I am getting so fat from sitting at my office desk all the time.

Planned to do so many things like binge-reading and movie marathoning on my off day but I ended up simply sleeping till 5pm hahaha. But that seems to be the norm nowadays because I’m always so tired. Yet every night I sleep so late despite having work in the morning and end up running on a mere four hours worth of sleep.


My resolution to lead a healthier lifestyle is obviously failing. Also need to stop spending 12 hours at my office desk every day (that was what happened the last two weeks) and leave on time. It’s not that I have poor time management because I already work faster than most people… But I also have more on my plate as compared to everyone else.

One year is up so my stint in the Social Committee is over. Was quite tempted to rejoin because I did enjoy it and all the parties we organised (not gonna lie, loved having first dibs on the food and drinks as well as keeping the leftover alcohol). But I have decided not to because of time constraints plus I’m already feeling very stretched. Such a shame though.

Been wanting to go on a long leave and holiday but I can’t find a good time range because I always seem to have something on. Plus I am lazy to plan trips. Got two full-day courses right smack in the middle of May. And of course I’m unwilling to miss any learning opportunities especially those that are paid for by the company.

We also had lots of guests and visitors coming by the past few weeks. Students participating in workshops to find out more about us as well as focus group sessions with our readers to get feedback and opinions.

Been giving presentations and sharing with people about our work and achievements and the things we do so it has all been very interesting for both sides. Also very refreshing to meet people who are loyal readers and give positive feedback on our products.

Had a pretty good weekend of impromptu plans though! All last minute but I’m really glad to see people I haven’t seen in ages and spend time with those I care about. Or maybe I am just desperate for social interaction outside of work.


How McDonald’s new clubhouse burger, truffle fries and red velvet McFlurry taste like

UPDATE (Nov 27)!!!

P/S: I do not get paid in any way for this post.

Live update from my office desk on how the new Red Velvet McFlurry with Oreo Cookie Bits tastes like. No mascots today (they looked really weird, too bad I didn’t get a photo), we went down to McDonald’s and bought it ourselves.

Actually I couldn’t taste the red velvet at all but anything with oreo is always good. No idea why CK’s one is so red though, compared to mine below.

Anyway, everyone else was eating the truffle fries today and the smell was so overwhelming that it was actually quite a turn-off.

Original article (Nov 26):

McDonald’s mascots (called ‘taste buds’ and dressed in pink, even their boots) dropped by the office this morning with their new clubhouse burgers and truffle flavoured shaker fries.  They are part of the year-end festive menu.

The truffle fries are a bit strange… more like flavoured salt? But I never liked any of their shaker fries, even the seaweed or spicy ones. Even their curly fries were average to me. I prefer the normal ones. Oh but the sweet potato fries were quite good!

Singaporeans being Singaporeans have already started complaining on McDonald’s Facebook page. Eh hello, they said truffle flavoured fries, not truffle fries ok? Want to eat actual truffle fries then pay more at a cafe la.

McDonald's chicken clubhouse burger

The chicken clubhouse burger (comes in beef too) is not bad. I like the onions, cheese (duh) and the sour sauce but am not a fan of the bacon. McSpicy will still always be my favourite though! It is unbeatable so far.

I ate so much today… Rice in the morning then the McDonald’s came at lunch time. Then redeemed free kaya toast from the kopitiam in the late afternoon. Then we had our monthly party with free food and drinks at around dinner time. My waist is going to disappear soon haha.

I love working here! What an interesting week with Def Leppard as well. Not forgetting how I have 21 days of annual leave excluding all the special leave and off days I get from working on holidays. Planning a getaway to Montigo Resorts in Jan and I’ve already booked my flight ticket to Australia in Feb 😀

Signed up for classes using the KFit app with Estelle too. I finished 2 this week! It’s actually very fun but super intensive too. Running on a treadmill at the gym is like a piece of cake compared to these.

I also started watching Games of Thrones because I wanted a show to binge-watch. But I refuse to watch Vampire Diaries because I spent 6 years being invested in Delena and it is gone. Time to move on to better things.
