Getting Over November Blues

Image
I've been feeling this blues up to last Thursday. I didn't have a good start to November, and I even put on 1kg. I know it's just 1 but for someone who is already on the heavy side, that 1 is a big deal, haha. But sometimes a little prep talk to myself does keep things going though it's not so effective. I could have earned $50 this week through my online orders but I was just too lazy to make them. I was this close to finishing it but I just couldn't finish.

I had a little me time going to the library, as I sat on a bench thinking about what am I doing with my life right now. I was upset with myself because I didn't put in effort in actually living my life. There were some moments which could steer me towards the right direction in life but somehow it didn't resonated well with me, like I still feel as though I just couldn't do something. I just don't have the mood.

But now, I'm slowly easing into routine as I tell myself that I should not fee…

Downtown Line 3 Open House 2017

Image
So we've been to all the open houses for the MRT lines. It will join the rest of the train networks such as the current Downtown Line 1 & 2, Circle Line, North South Line and East West Line. So last Sunday on the 15th October 2017 was the Downtown Line 3 Open House. We went after 1pm because we were late like that, nothing new...lol..but it was a good thing too because we got a notification that there was a track fault. It wasn't part of the stations in the open house, but still they had to stop the free train service for awhile as a precautionary measure.

However, it was quite quickly rectified and then the train services resumed as usual. We started at MacPherson as it was the nearest for us. It was also a pretty hot day so we had to walk quickly to the station, lol. So we took the train from MacPherson Station to Mattar Station and along the way, we stopped at several stations where we wanted to see the celebrities. They were doing some hosting of games for the commuters…

My Book Review on When Breath Becomes Air

Image
I am almost complete with reading a book called When Breath Becomes Air, which was published posthumously. The author has passed away and it hit home to me because he died at the age where I had just turned last month. However, all this time he was doing really well in life in the medical field as a neurosurgeon and he was going to complete his residency to become a professor when illness struck him. From the symptoms which included excruciating back pain, it was clear to him that there was a high possibility that he was having cancer. But did not want to conclude it yet as he would need to go for further check ups, MRI scans and so on. 

The thing that struck him the most how his life was parallel to that of his patients and that now the role is reversed now. While every doctor aims to save people's lives, he also acknowledged that there was so much they can do up to a point where death would be easier for the patients. But he also became more aware that a doctor-patient relationsh…

I Tried a New Fitness Class...Piloxing!

Image
I ended my Zumba class the week before on Thursday. Actually I wasn't feeling so well, think I was starting to develop flu and cough, perhaps a little fever. So I was thinking so many times whether I should go. But it was the very last class for the month and they won't have this class the next month so I thought I felt a little better (panadol helped a little too...lol) when I stepped out of office. So I went to the nearest public toilet at the MRT station and changed. The venue was one station away and I thought to myself I shouldn't be so hard on myself. 

However I ended up enjoying the classes. Sure there were sporadic coughing here and there and I felt none the worse when I reached home. Yet I followed through the class and even had a group picture taken.


I'm in blue, centre besides the lady in the blue singlet. Anyway, I just noticed many of us were in blue, lol.

Look at all the tired but happy faces. There were a total of two guys and one of the guys come like ever…

The Sentosa Sandsation Exhibition 2017

Image
A few weeks ago, we visited Sentosa after quite awhile and mind you this was pretty late like we reached around 8.10pm. We actually took an SBS bus starting from outside Tiong Bahru MRT. It was a new service introduced by SBS Transit and if you're in Orchard Road area and feel like the night is still young, provided it's not very late, you can just board this bus and be in a journey right to Sentosa.

So the bus went around the Tiong Bahru estate which wasn't that long and actually Tiong Bahru is actually quite near Harbourfront. So once it had passed through the housing estates, it then embarked on a journey through the Sentosa gate and then made its way to the basement of the Resorts World Sentosa.

This was where the journey felt pretty long. It consisted of complicated and narrow small roads which the poor driver had to navigate through as certain roads were demarcated for certain vehicle uses. We just had to trust with the driver's expertise to not make the wrong tu…

My 36th Birthday and Revisiting the Past..in My Dreams

Image
Last Saturday, I celebrated my 36th birthday with my good friends over a late lunch early dinner thing and then we rushed off for our karaoke. Time was critical and it took awhile for them to find my friend's number. Go figure. But it was actually on the board all the time. What.

Anyway, after what took forever, we managed to actually get our room and started to sing our hearts out..heh. I also received a surprise gift from them. Would you believe it, I was just kidding with one of them that I wanted a $50 sephora voucher. I got a freaking $50 gift card. OMGness...but I am going to save for the Christmas collections, hee. Not too long now!!

My actually birthday was the following Monday and I took leave. Yay. I didn't do much except to make cards. And watch you tube videos. But then again, the second part is like my daily activity, heh. I still needed to run the online shop though, which explained why I went to the post office in the afternoon and continued making the batch of ca…

My Predicament in Dealing with People Lacking in Integrity

This week, I have been peeved with people with a lack of integrity or basically taking things for granted, as though I have so much free time for them to anyhow just go MIA on me when we were supposed to meet to collect the things I had made for them. I also have to deal with a girl who, up to this point where I am writing this post, has not made any payment to me and keep claiming she forgot to pay. It's clear that she had received the good and she herself said so but I am predicting she has no intention of paying at all.

I don't wish to chase anymore and yes, it is yet another loss for me. My friend did say business is business. But I'm going to get the same answer again from her so I just leave it as that and just move on. I only hope that she will bear the guilt of taking something without paying and in an unfortunate event due to karma, she will also lose some money. Yes I know I sound like I'm cursing her but I'm not. Some people need to learn hard lessons so …

Birthday Gathering & House Hunting

Image
Last week, I celebrated a friend of mine's belated birthday together with another friend at her condo. Sadly, this would be the last time we would hold the celebration at her place because she has finally managed to sell off her condo unit after one year of looking for a buyer.

Mostly we used the swimming pool facilities although the two of us didn't swim at all but just chill under the shade. We brought home cooked food and I really appreciated my friend for doing this for us, thinking about how the young son of a friend of us would love the swimming pool for kids. She is so selfless and kind to her friends and I'm truly blessed to have her in my life. 

While one was selling off the house, the other friend was on the verge of getting a dream house for herself and her young son. In life, we have many priorities and things to look forward to. Each of our dreams and aspirations are different from one another, like for me, getting a house is not a priority at the moment.
