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

First post of 2016

HELLO it’s 2016! Been so busy that I didn’t update at all in December. I did post-process some photos but somehow never got round to posting them. Somehow I just don’t see a need to put everything out online as much as I used to anymore.

Prefer to spend my free time with loved ones, trying to milk my KFit membership, reading (I finished re-reading the Harry Potter, Princess Diaries and Georgia Nicholson series hehe), watching shows and planning my next holiday 😀

Being a laggard again but I’m currently quite hooked on Game of Thrones omg??

Freaking out at Estelle and CK who have already watched till the latest episode HAHA. Ok some parts are quite draggy but they have so many WTF moments that leave my jaws dropping. This scene that I was spazzing about seriously takes shock to new heights.

Wish I’d watched it earlier i.e. when each episode aired like what I used to do with Vampire Diaries… and then go on Tumblr to fangirl, reblog all the GIFs, discuss theories and ships etc hahaha. Too bad I haven’t used Tumblr in years because of time.

December was fantastic especially with Christmas even though I worked pretty much worked the whole of Dec 31, Jan 1 and Jan 2. But it’s okay because I get to save all my off days for when I go on holiday 😀

Just felt like visiting the place after seeing pictures online so I randomly threw out the suggestion to my friends and surprisingly everyone agreed so enthusiastically. Going there in mid-Jan which is in two weeks!

Also bought my flight tickets to Gold Coast at a steal (S$292) back in November. Going there to visit David and Jessica in February. So that’s another thing to look forward to yay.

My mum wants to go Hong Kong so I’ll probably bring her there in March. I am waiting for a good Cathay Pacific deal because it’s one of the top-rated airlines that I’ve yet to try.

Nearly booked tickets to Bangkok for April because the last time I went there was 2014 but I thought that might be too much and too soon so I didn’t. Should I have?! It was only $92 after taxes and everything though wtf.

Hahaha okay I should stop wanderlusting. Time really flies… Even CNY is coming. If you are looking for the perfect oufit, don’t forget to check out Zalora’s Chinese New Year collection! Plenty of lovely options even if you are not a fan of red 🙂

January seems pretty exciting so far but maybe I’ll reveal more another time! Super occupied with work of late because I’m working on lots of extra projects in addition to daily editorial stuff. I hope 2016 will be full of opportunities and happiness and all good things 🙂


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:

bak chor mee teh peng

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…
