This week I am thankful that:

  • I spotted a haze free, super blue, super white clouds sky. Sometimes the most beautiful things in life are really free. It’s just up to us to keep it that way by reducing our carbon footprints!

  • I helped Lush Singapore in their Guinness World Record attempt. They are trying to raise awareness of the cruelty that’s involved in cosmetic testing and how LUSH does not test on animals and also do not condone it or support it in any way. All of the ingredients used at LUSH are purchased from sellers who do not test their raw ingredients on animals, unlike some other brands who claim to be cruelty-free yet have their raw materials tested on animals behind the façade.

  • Melly (a friend, not me), helped my get some things from the YG eshop and I met up with her to collect them! Also met Yawen and managed to score stuff at the Accessorize sale!
  • Got a new coat of color at the salon

  • Tried out Bull and Butcher and the food was quite good! Especially loved the Petit Tender and the Banana and Toffee tart. Recommended! But, do go in when you have lots of time to spare because the food took quite long to arrive. Service is so-so.
  • Went for tea with the family at Goodwoord Park! Seriously the durian mousse cake is to die for!
  • Finally submitted a proposal and it’s totally weight taken off my shoulders. It’s not the end of it though so still a little nervous but at least the first step has been taken..
  • The peony has been 80% finalized and I am so in love with it! Can I say more? NO hahaha.

Is this part of being an adult? I feel like now, there are so many things that I really cannot disclose. :/ Ok the last point is a choice but still. Like how I said in my previous post that my next post would be about *** but I haven’t put it up because I’m still waiting for clearance..hahaha.

Anyways, back to my project life! (Keep checking back for scoops~)

Thankful Fridays: 12 July 2013

Thankful June

So..I’ve pretty much disappeared from here for the month of June because 1) My laptop broke! and 2) I’ve been crazy busy. I still am super busy and will continue to be until probably the rest of the year. It’s not that I got a job or got back into school though. I’m not trying to be mysterious and stuff but I just really cannot disclose what exactly I’m busy with. HAHAHA it’s funny because I’m not even kidding. But, June was really quite a good month!

June was filled with many eventful days spent with RBKD, most notably our 2013 Orientation which I will put up a detailed post of, 2 Youth Code events, a Masquerade Party, and a few other gathering sessions. I have a write-up featured on the RBKD blog in this post, and if you’d like to read more about the fun stuff RBKD does together, you can check out the blog right here.

Basically for June, I am thankful that:

  • I am a part of RBKD (I know, this is repetitive, but I really am)
  • I had a chance to take part in all of the awesome activities with super awesome people

  • I saw her many times in June, each time, she was prettier than the last.
  • I made and successfully passed her a handmade card which I’m quite proud of
  • ZZSF ( The Dream Makers; Mediacorp Channel 8 drama) finally debuted and #zzsf trended on Twitter. This continues the streak of all her shows trending on debut since Unriddle 2.
  • We managed to get #fangtonglin up in the trending topics upon her character’s debut as well. This is extra significant because…(if you really want to know, ask me privately..I can’t throw it out here :s )20130611_203740_wm
  • We took a picture with Sam Ong and he even reposted it!!
  • My laptop could be fixed (for free!). Because I absolutely hate buying new electronic gadgets like computers and phones. I’m very stone-age..I don’t understand product specifications and don’t really want to have to

Laptop Revival

So about 10 days ago my laptop decided to go all Windows blue screen on me just as I was trying to draft my post about the RBKD Orientation.

Luckily, my brother in law is some sort of a geek, so I sent my laptop to his place and he managed to get it running again. I just got it back yesterday, and I’ve missed a few Thankful Fridays.

I have many events to catch up and write about. I will try to get them up quickly so stay tuned!

PS: Alchemy Light has brought to my attention that the Moon’s energy is really strong tonight so it’s a really good time to charge your crystals, especially the Moonstone! 😀

This week I am thankful that:

  • Tried Pete’s Place for the first time (yea very slow hahaha).

Thankful Fridays: 24 May 2013

This week I am thankful that:

  • I had the opportunity to volunteer with Beyond Social Services. I found yet another outlet where I can make use of my hotel training. I don’t think I can go into detail about what I did. All I can safely say is that it was a really educational experience. If you would like to volunteer or pledge a donation, please contact BSS.
  • I got to know some of my fellow Rangels a little bit better. Such a fun bunch of people really
  • I caught Boyce Avenue perform LIVE at Music Matters Singapore! After all these time of watching them on youtube, it was really nice to see and listen to them in person. I ignored my hatred of crowds for them. They were awesome!

I’m so happy!!!
