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!

Prelude + Day 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12 / 13 / 14 / 15 / 16 / 17 / 18 / 19 / 20 / 21 / 22 / 23 / 24 / 25 / 26 / 27 / 28 / 29 / 30 / 31 / 32 / 33 / 34 / 35 + Video

In Your Eyes

A while ago when everyone was playing with the imadeface iPhone app, I made Loti made my face (and his). I already did a version of us beforehand but didn’t showed it to him ‘cos I wanted to see how I looked like in his eyes. (Maybe I look va va voom to him.)

IT WAS VA VA VOOM INDEED! Hahahahah it’s either he sees me as a goddess, or had a really hard time matching facial features. I believe it’s more of the latter.

Then when I showed him my version we started LOL-ing.


Jeng jeng! Loti said, “How come I look like monkey!?!?”


Here’s to everyone who keep saying we look alike! :O

Vomit of Words

This is gonna be a post that I’ll just type whatever that comes onto my mind and I won’t read through again so there will be grammar mistakes or whatever shit but IDC. I’m so busy that I keep forgetting what I want to blog about. Busy with work and relationships – family, bf, friends. It’s hard trying to strike a balance with everything. Got a XBOX Kinect recently and am glad that family are having fun with it. Got a GoPro Hero 3 also but it’s rotting on my shelf now. No time to play with it. Anyway, didn’t know that if your overseas orders exceed $400, you’d be taxed. KNN. I’m actually running a flu now and I want to go home and rest but I dowan to miss the good lunch that my team planned to go. What a loser to food. Last Saturday was siao. Woke up at 5am to do work, then go back office to work on pitch till 11pm, then head to Zouk and played till 4am. It’s been a super long time since I did that and conclusion is that clubbing will only be fun if it’s once in a while thing with the right company. Dragged myself up for brunch the next morning and I’m still the kind who likes chilling over a cuppa coffee. Then I went back to sleep my whole Sunday away. Oh I dyed my hair ash brown, kinda. It looks different under different lightings. Taiwan trip is coming up and I can’t wait but so many things need to be done before I go off. One big thing is assigning Loti’s mum to help us choose our unit while we are away ‘cos we’ve gotten a queue number for a BTO that we randomly tried our luck with. OMG. So adult. Can’t believe that I’ll be getting a house with Loti. Thinking about it, I’m placing a bet on someone whom I’ve only known for 1.5 years and hasn’t even graduated. But I choose to believe that our goals in life are the same. We wanna explore the world and dowan kids. (The kids issue I can write a full post on it). We’re starting our journey with Taiwan. I feel happy around Loti and we do the stupidest things together. He’s a friend and a partner. My ex can only be a partner but not a friend. Bringing my ex abruptly into the picture is uncool, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t gotten over him or he’s still somewhere in my mind. Looking back, I wasn’t even completely myself when I was with him. Cannot blame also la, I was only 17 when I dated him. BUT BUT, there isn’t one day that I can’t thank enough that he cheated on me. Thanks for cheating on me and creating a valid reason for a breakup else I wouldn’t be what I am today. I used to want to get married by 24 and have my first kid at 25 (WTF) but the breakup made me view life completely different. I think we all grow up to realise that life really isn’t a bed of roses. Life is so short and unpredictable. You’ll fail, get hurt, make wrong choices but such is life. Whether you give up or become stronger really depends on individuals. I’ve spoken about these kind of things so many times but I really believe in taking chances and doing things that you enjoy. There are no regrets, only lessons learnt. There’s also no such thing as you NEED someone else to make you happy. How can you depend on another person for your own happiness I don’t geddit. I can also go on about this kind of person or people I can’t stand in another post. Hahaha I dunno what else to say la. KTHXBYE!
