just realized it’s impt to have friends who have similar cultural references (i.e. watching the same shows, listening to the same type of music). It’s something I value quite a lot I think.
swinging between wanting to be productive / being productive to being an ultimate little slug who just wants to curl up in bed. The cold weather is making me so hungry all the time. I’ve also run out of instant coffee and tea is not doing any good in trying to keep me awake. So much work to do but i don’t really have much of an urgency. April’s always the most horrible month...
PEOPLE SHOULD NOT BE SNARKY / MAKE SNARKY COMMENTS.
carmenxbunny asked: buy the m&s reduced fat croissant! makes my day
start a day with a chocolate croissant and warm your hands with a cup of coffee. i wish croissants were low fat so i can eat them all the time without feeling bad. weather’s fucking with my mood. So angry everytime I walk out and the cold wind is literally chilling my bones. (Does that make sense). All I want to do is hide under my blankets and pretend that nothing exists. ...
is it bad if i’ve stopped caring much abt how the country has become? Or more importantly, stop having any desire to change things? Triggered by the recent article shared excessively by obviously privileged (but i guess not so now cos they realized how their wealth is obviously dwarfed by those in the article) kids studying overseas.
just wanna remind myself that at this stage of life, i am truly happy and thankful for so so so many wonderful things, people and opportunities. I enjoy what I’m studying and I learn more everyday, and that’s not something that should be taken for granted given how so many of my friends don’t think they are getting a quality education. What I’m studying is important, and...
really happy to have hung out with people from one of my fav groups in rj here in ldn. Old friends are just so precious. I wonder whether I’ll make any new friends in the following years whom I’ll keep as close as those from school.
don’t understand why i get so enraged sometimes. Hoping it is PMS, but I still want to tear off the heads of DHL delivery people right now. fucking inefficiencies.
I keep wanting to cry when I hear Local Natives, is this PMS? just so surreal that I actually got to watch them live, okay now I feel like crying again whenever i recall the concert.
I threw my hands in the air I said show me something He said, if you dare come a little closer Round and around and around and around we go Ohhh now tell me now tell me now tell me now you know
so bad at keeping in touch with people back home. I haven’t spoken to so many of them in ages :( just not very good at sustaining whatsapp conversations etc. And it’s not that i don’t think about them/miss them, it’s the usual laziness and also reluctance to type a long reply to ‘how’s life?’ because there’s simply too many things to say that...
some breakup season right now. hahaha i am starting to think that love is bullshit.
NOT THE RIGHT FEELING TO HAVE.
first time in three years I actually feel so homesick. Might be the combination of the dreary weather outside, being alone in a home with leaking ceilings, the need to churn out a progress report on smt I really have not much of a clue. Cried like a silly kid when I talked to momma and poopies on the phone, really miss them so much I didn’t even wanna hang up. Pressing the hang up button...
my wednesday morning
waking up when it’s nine, nice long bath, walk opposite to get my pb pandan waffles from prima deli and teh tarik, reading the newspaper and enjoying breakfast, looking through old photographs of mommy and daddy and the family when we were younger and feeling immensely sad that I’m going to leave them behind for another 9 months. eating grapes and oranges from my little fruit...
looking forward to london because i just miss the feel of london, the weather, the ability to lie on the grass and just do absolutely nothing and the shopping hehe. However, going back means facing the reality of the D that is just like in ruins currently.
sometimes i feel the overwhelming urge to change things, to improve things. We’re so good at complaining about the transport here, but I am actually in the position to do something instead of just merely grumbling and whining about all its faults. I do hope this desire to make things happen doesn’t disappear once I start work and get jaded. but yet there are days where I wish I could...
reason why i appreciate singapore: for being truly multiracial. I am glad I have great Indian and Malay friends. Wished Arina ‘selamat hari raya’ today and realized my daddy has sent his greetings to all his Muslim colleagues too. Never really gave much thought to our multiracial character, but I think it is something Singapore should really be proud of. Now, I wonder whether we can...
:( :( :( :(
so lost. :( how am i going to complete my degree in this current situation?
situational friends →
I think it actually starts at 20, for me at least.
i count my blessings everyday.
OMG WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FONT ON MY BLOG :( PIZZED. feeling really lonely at home cos everyone’s out working, my friends are all interning/working and I have no one to talk to. And yes, yet another afternoon wasted away. Read someone’s d and felt really shit about mine, I am so fucking clueless and like I feel like I am thrown into the vast sea to look for something, but no one is...
Today marks the third day that I am slothing at home since coming back from Australia, time passes really quickly even though I don’t do anything substantial. I like my little morning routine of eating breakfast (tau sa bia!!! - ok i have depleted everything) and reading Straits Times and drinking a cup of Old Town White Coffee. In that one hour or so, I am away from my iphone and ipad and...
FUCKING QUARRELS, WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE TO QUARREL SO MUCH.
just chilling in my very messy room right now sipping yakult. Singapore is sweltering, i believe that I might melt if I step into a non air-conditioned place or if I’m not drinking anything cold. Also I have discovered that I am a giant sloth, basically I have not cleared anything in my room since post-As, and mommy and daddy being wonderful souls have just organized and packed my room...
is it bad that my favourite new word is dumbfuck? It is so funny, I giggle every time I use it.
WE ARE YOUNG
Today, when the whole wembley was singing this in unison and at the top of our lungs during the sing-a-long sessions, I felt like this was really the best way I was spending my youth. It was one of those magical moments in life that I wished I could capture, and just something I want to remember for the rest of my life. Other than that, the concert was really hands down the best concert...
HELLO SUMMER, NICE TO MEET YOU.
23 hours more to the end of my exams!!!!! ZOMG have not been studying the hardest for this paper so i ought to slap myself! But still happy days await me ~~~~~ surfing food blogs, or maybe just ladyironchef and writing down where I need to go when i’m back in sg and also australia! And obviously diligently noting down the places to eat when my sis+cousins+carmen come down to london. going...
feeling really sad suddenly :( My mood really fluctuates like a pendulum, one minute i am dancing around in my room and the next moment I just wanna hide under my covers and cry. LIFE > GRADES. it is disgusting that I feel like i am in a constant competition with just two people, sucks when there are only 2 singaporeans in your course and you’re the last. It just makes me feel really...
finally satisfied my craving for salmon sashimi today, and had a cup of pinkberry too with clr. I need to snap out of this holiday mode because I still have one more paper to go :( :( Tried to do work since 5pm but i did almost nothing grr.
dog days are (almost) over
WHOOPEE, JUST GOT MY FIRST TASTE OF WHAT FREEDOM WILL TASTE LIKE IN 6 DAYS’ TIME. at 5pm today, i was just thinking of how my torture was gonna end really soon and had to slap myself to focus on writing my essay, hoho. Yay, had kimchi stew + bbq pork belly today from PO CHA and seasalt caramel and matcha icecream from polka gelato after the paper. First meal in ages that’s not...
really cannot wait to go home and be back in the company of my old friends, who are normal, share similar interests and don’t set off ‘WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU’ alarms in my head constantly when we have conversations. There are too many weird people here that I can’t tolerate, but whom i still have to be nice to. IT IS KILLING ME……. #bitchtalk
