Discovery of hipster cafes in JB; Mirum launch; Chinese New Year; first (KPO-ing of) video shoot; family times; good times and bad times.
The short weekend diving getaway to Tioman was awesome and I have more new found diving kakis 😀 Go-karted for the first time and it was awesome too. Shaved off the side of my hair again, if you did notice. Watches are my new addiction and I bought a couple of them from various sites and stores. Seems like it’s time for some shoes online now!
As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn’t supposed to ever let us down, probably will. You’ll have your heart broken and you’ll break others’ hearts. You’ll fight with your best friend or maybe even fall in love with them, and you’ll cry because time is flying by. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, forgive freely, and love like you’ve never been hurt. Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances. you just have to live life to the fullest, tell someone what they mean to you and tell someone off, speak out, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late, be a flirt, and smile until your face hurts. Don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love and most of all, live in the moment because every second you spend angry or upset is a second of happiness you can never get back.

This is the last night that my parents aren’t at home. For the first time in 25 years, they had finally let go and went on a holiday by themselves, leaving me and bro behind.
I’ve always envied my friends whenever they say that their parents are not in town. House parties and havoc yeaaaa – that’s what I imagined. But in reality it’s not lor.
I injured myself (again) one day before they left, and had been limping around since. Had to work from home for two days and how I wished my mum was around to prepare lunch and dad to buy dinner back. Bro had a high fever over the weekends. It was quite persistent that we almost thought it was dengue. Was pretty lost but luckily my cousin came over. The nights also became darker and quieter, and the house suddenly seemed scarier. Didn’t helped that my TV switches on by itself every now and then.
I love my folks and I honestly cannot imagine moving out without them next time. Who’s gonna wash my clothessss!!! (HAHAHA kidding, but really, who?)
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!
