Life in Circles V

I’m No Longer the Sole Breadwinner! YAY!

After almost two years, Loti has finally graduated :D

Congrats to both him and me~ Now I can finally sit back relax enjoy my ROI and treat Loti like a cash cow. HAHAHAH I’m kidding, and I wish!

Loti has officially entered the workforce about three weeks now, and he’s slogging hard like a cow. I’m also busy with my own stuffs so I hardly see him on weekdays recently. Now then he starts to understand things that he didn’t when he was still a student. Makes my blood boil when I recall him complaining that I always don’t have time for him >:(

Read an interesting entry about us generation Y and our career expectations from yesterday.

My favourites were these:

Great careers take years of blood, sweat and tears to build – even the ones with no flowers or unicorns on them – and even the most successful people are rarely doing anything that great in their early or mid-20s.

Stop thinking that you’re special. The fact is, right now, you’re not special. You’re another completely inexperienced young person who doesn’t have all that much to offer yet. You can become special by working really hard for a long time.

So, to all the GYPSYs who read it (whether you just started working, already working, or waiting to graduate), AI PIA JIA EH YIA~

6th Day of Being a Commoner

Sent my bike for a new paint job last last Saturday and I’ve been relying on the public transport since.

Actually it isn’t THAT bad except for waiting time, the squeeze, and occasional rude or smelly people. At the same time, I’ve rediscovered time to nap on the way to work or do things like listening to music, surfing the net, and blogging on-the-go like right now.

But I still miss you mehmeh. Can’t wait to get on you when you turn yellow!

Back to Mundane

I’ve been posting so much stuffs about my Taiwan trip for the past months. So sorry, I’m still living in denial and in the past hahaha.

Nothing much has changed after I returned to Singapore in July. Same old same old busy as hell the moment work resumed. But (after being a farmer for three days and seeing how some people fight so hard for a living) I think I’m appreciating what I’m doing more and more. Every morning when I wake up, I tell myself, “I’m a designer and I love my job.” I like having the ability to change things, however small or dry a project is. I know that whatever I clicked on my screen will see the light on the internet somewhere out there. And I’m proud of that.

Caught the first musical in my life and guilty as charged, I fell asleep. Wahahaha I couldn’t understand what they were singing half the time and I blame it on being totally clueless about Phantom of the Opera’s story beforehand.

Met up with friends here and there and sometimes I find it amusing why people have the constant need to “catch up” with people. But time passes, you’ll figure out where everyone is heading in life and who is worth catching up with and who just gets you caught up in their shit. That’s when I gotta do the sorry-gotta-move-on-with-my-life-kthxbai~

Left Hand Drawings

One of the plans in my 100-day plan II is to create at least 10 doodles with my left hand. I’ve succeeded, and drew 11! (I’m a rightie if it’s not obvious enough.)

35D Taiwan: Prelude (I’m Engaged!)

So it’s already 1.48am now and I’m in Taipei, fcuking tired after running around + eating the whole day but I still insist on churning out this entry ‘cos I dowanna lose this feeling.

30th May marks another milestone in my life. As many of my friends already know, Loti proposed. O M F G W T F I K R !

I swear it was at one of the most unromantic places ever – Changi Airport’s Osim foot massage chairs. We were resting before our flight (the machines weren’t even working), then Loti suddenly showed me some videos. They were snippets of him talking, then suddenly at the last video, he took out a ring! Then he flashed a card and said, “Will you marry me?” I was taken aback. It was so abrupt I didn’t even know if it was really happening. I told him, “I want to hear the real one.” “Of course,” he replied. He came over and knelt in front of me with the ring and repeated the four magical words. I was already crying and choked, “YES.” THEN HE PUT THE RING ON THE WRONG FINGER. Major diao -.- HAHAHAHAHAH. He said he was kanjiong (so cute). But when we figured out which was the right hand and finger, it was a perfect fit. I hugged him and continued crying.

However, the most stunning thing was that Loti had already bought this ring half a year ago, and he actually closed down one of his bank accounts to do that. Silly boy. Also apparently, all my close friends and his family and friends knew about the existence of this ring, but everyone played dumb for six months. IMPOSSIBRU! After that, Loti started telling me facts about the diamond (dunno what cut clarity value etc) but to me, they weren’t important at all. I only know that this man showed hand to ask for my hand in marriage. He could have waited till he gets a stable job and enough money to do so, but he chose to gamble away almost all his student savings now. I’m.. truly… touched.

Still, why at Osim foot massage chairs? ‘Cos it was discreet enough according to him, and we are simple people like that. No fanciful flowers, no unwanted attention from strangers, no applause – just us and true feelings :’)

Thanks for all the blessings from everyone! People happy for me I see liao also very happy lei :D I’ll try to update my trip along the way if I can. 2.28am now. Bye!
