East Coast Sunday

A day at East Coast Park with our love - Both my bike which I cycled out of Suntec to the carpark and my baby princess. This bike fits juju on the front seat, Wincci in the basket and my pimped foot rest at the back seat. 

Days like these fascinates me. I wake up in the morning, look at the dog and have this sudden urge to bring her out for a walk, to the beach, do something crazy. I used to do these. I don’t anymore especially when school’s starting and I can barely find another inch to make space for my own. 

But I love these shots, it brings out the happiness and a happy rainbow to end the day. I love my S100.

Happy times on a Friday night

What else do I ask for? These favorite friends who had always been there in times of sorrow, in times of comfort and in many counts of fun. We spent our Saturday night at Ivan’s apartment poppin’ champagne, wine and beer till everyone left happy. I love quiet and happy nights like these, where you don’t even have to try to hide how you actually feel. I love this intimate feeling. 

My pretty hippie nails perfectly done by Juju’s sister after I bought my China Glaze today. In total excitement for pretty nails! And some pretty awesome kick ass food I made for myself 2 weeks back - Poached egg with ham and cheese :) I’m on instagram here

I had an unhealthy week with a sudden craving for potato chips - guilty as charged. But I love Sundays because I get to spend quality time with juju! We wake up, have lunch, walk the dog, have dinner, watch tv until he has to leave :( But we always wake up late enough to miss Korean lunches…

Da Paolo and 1-Caramel at Rochester

The awwwsome MI friends I’ve made during the first three months and my less than overused bag which I bought from Paul’s Boutique last month. Jasmine’s back from Sydney - That explains our annual get together from a long day to a long night. It was all worth it. 

Sherman decided we should dine at Da Paolo at One Rochester, Jasmine made reservations for 6 the next minute and poof, our date was set. Everyone else ordered Wagyu Beef Burger, Jasmine ordered its Thin Crust Crab Pizza and I had a Roasted Organic French Chicken. The portions were just right for an empty stomach to be filled, and I loved the taste of my chicken, it wasn’t too tough or over-grilled and the wagyu for the burger was perfect. 

I had to bring them to try the Strawberry Shortcake at 1-Caramel though, after Fang Joyce Pearl and Justin bought it for my birthday. It was waaayyy too yum. When we walked over at 10, we did get the last slice to share. They also ordered the Alaskan Crab, together with some other desserts that I forgot because everyone’s second stomach for desserts were screaming with hunger. 

I love them all and I love them all the same. To our 5 years of friendship :)

A day breakfast and a day out

My very satisfied-looking mini pancakes. Someone must have rigged my cravings in my sleep to wake up pan-fying for Ju and my family pancakes for breakfast. And then we rode to some place looking out of Singapore for a weekly walk. There was so much excitement that my muscles ached from trying to hold itself together - The Sunday that I satisfied too many cravings in a day, and Sundays that I’ve been dreading for a long long time. 

My school’s starting in 3 weeks and will be busy at camp the next. Drop me an email if you’d like to say hello :)

Poly friends then and now

The last shot to end the happy night at Overtime.

We met 4 years ago. We were in the same class, we shared the same bond, shared good and bad memories together, and memories that would probably take a lifetime to forget. Till today, we talk about the funny drunk moments on the wine bottle, the games we used to play, the after school impromptu adventures we used to have, and everything else that I couldn’t possibly sum up these 3 years spent together. 

Those years were worth our youth. Here we are, 4 years had passed, talking about what changed in our lives, talking about our future. Thunderclouds then grazed the roof above us with lashing rain that soaked the streets. We sat there, in the midst of the pouring rain, pouring our hearts out. They say, “You will never stop at one beer." It’s true, we didn’t. And we had a great time.

Fights and struggles

There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown… The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much.

- Marc Chernoff

I was ruminating on both my recent past and future, together with friends whom I haven’t met for a long time… I realized how one, without love, could be almost emotionally depleted and one, with it, could be the luckiest girl bagged with beautiful memories. We tend to fight, fight for the things we believe in, for things that are rightfully ours, for people whom are worth the hurt… We fight for almost all our lives, and some, still desperately fighting.

Yet, we give up when we know there is nothing left in the life, in the person you are fighting for. There is no more fight. All that’s left, is agony and pain. Those fights, are like wounds that ached when it rained.

The weekend expedition (sneak)

My weekend expedition. The weekend expedition I had with Ju that didn’t bother even if no one really cared about. Sunday was made beautiful with tranquil waters and still sky, clouds that were perpetually lined with silver linings in a deep shade of blue. It was mobile, and it was serene. 

It could be the only life that we only cared and talk about. More often than not, we neglect the best people in life that never fails to be there, and they never walk away. So Ju and I went to Equinox with my mom and grams last Saturday to lounge away from the heat and have high tea together. I promise to be back with more pictures xx

Live change

It’s been almost a year of good change, and I still like to photograph visuals that speak volumes from our memories. In a year, my life have slowly grown to take a new turn – Things that I have been so used to doing within the 4 years, now spent apart, and seeing people and things who matter from a different light. I used to be afraid of documenting this new journey, and words that I am unable to find my fingers on the keyboard, words that fear change.

These bad fears have now dissolved with the pouring rain, and one day, I’ll be excited to write about what this new beginning brings. Things were tough initially, especially the letting go. But the friends that hung on, the family that never walked away from dark nights and everyone else who played a part in making this whole period better. My mom, my sister, my cousins and friends who find joy in making a friend with Justin, takes these fears away.

It was those memories that lingered on for seconds before it let go. It was about taking advantage of the vantage points in life that helps you when you lose some, to gain some. It was, when I saw how he would go through all lengths, just to see me happy. It was about me, then about him. Those were the fleeting moments of joy.

Happy 4th of July. Enjoy the fireworks!

Universal Studios and some updates

Just in case you’re wondering what I’ve been doing lately, I’ve taken almost 2 weeks hiatus off from work to go for the upcoming computing freshmen orientation week pre-camp, packing for Hong Kong, and trying to complete a new project on hand. Tuition resumes this week, selecting modules for next semester and still trying to find motivation within. I’ve been putting off my motivation in my sleep. 

It’s weird how I haven’t been exercising lately, or going to the gym - The lack of motivation for everything that has been constantly eating the stale air in my room… I also signed up for 10KM SAFRA Army Half Marathon last Sunday on the 9th September to run with Justin, and my very inspiring sister running 21KM Women’s Open with her friends. I lack her mental courage and discipline. 

3 weeks ago, I purchased Canon S100 (Previously used my sister’s S95) from the IT fair and I loved it since. Been using less of my Nikon, everyone around me has been upgrading… I’m trying to stick, especially when I know I have lesser time to commit. Photos from the recent few entries have been shot by the S100 :) I hope you’ll have a great week ahead!
