It got me thinking

Will you return to the road not taken?


It will always be a question. The past 2 weeks, I’ve been obsessed with reading books while commuting to work, and I love visiting the library to do just that. I will never make good use of the books that I’ve bought, but I always tend to finish the ones I borrow. It’s… Weird. There was this book that I especially liked – “The Other Life – Ellen Meister” and the reviews I always thread on before deciding if I should borrow - The Other Life, Ellen Meister Book Review.


It was perfect, reconstructing two lives, as we all have choices to choose the paths that we will lead. I think part of the book has hit home for me – Sometimes constantly believing that there will always be such portals in our lives that could take us back to another; one with no worries, no pain and all that glam and classy. But sometimes life isn’t all of that. What if one day, it’d be nice to slip through, for a peek into your other life, especially when we are at a fork?

It's been almost a month!





It’s been almost a month since I got back from Hong Kong, and no… No massive withdrawal symptoms because honestly, Hong Kong is very much like Singapore, and it’s only a 3.5hours plane ride away! The style is definitely what I missed when I was there, and the 50% off train rides concession for students… I only realized how expensive it was to take public transport (bus + train) to work and home every weekday, until Cheryl provided me a solution: To buy a hybrid concession for my travel. So I managed to get a hybrid concession at only $85, and I think the fare prices for concession actually decreased (hurrayyyy) and it makes travelling to work, back home, to the gym, or even lazy rides that are 2-4 stops away in your neighborhood worth it! I only have one more year to own a concession though, because the travel fares here isn’t exactly cheap… But that’s okay. 


For 2 weeks I bummed around doing nothing every day, procrastinated from unpacking my luggage, and the only productive thing that I’ve been doing daily and feel good about is going to the gym. I’m delusional! I go through phases especially with this gym regime. There are days that I feel extremely lazy and all I’d want to do is to lay in bed, and scroll through blogshops/ instagram on my phone or to re-watch Masterchef altogether. Then there are days that I’m excited to go to bed early that night so I would wake up to work out in the gym the next day! I don’t quite get myself, really.  



Here’s a little back progress, and I’ve been working very much on my back, shoulders and arms the past 2 weeks. I’d definitely love to share, but I wouldn’t have time to type out a concise routine. Just drop me a mail! Have a merry merry Sunday and holidays :’)

Also located at the top of Ritz Carlton Hotel is the infinity swimming pool, overlooking the view ends of Central and Sheung Wan. Definitely one of the hotels-to-stay in future. The facilities, the view from the toilet (even!) is amazing. I can’t imagine how the stay would be like if you’d get to their spa and private dining :)
