Of appreciation and,

I usually have the habit of updating this space when I am usually overseas in either June or December. And it usually on the night before I depart for home or on the day itself. This time round, even with the ample time I have to update, I decided not to. I realised that I am, at times, too dependent on the technology, thinking about the things I want to update that I had forgotten to immersed myself with the present and let the emotions of that moment to beautify itself. So this time round, I decided to put the post on hold and just breathe and go with the flow of the trip that I had.

Surprise, surprise. This #summer2014, I decided to “let go” the wanting to go back to Seoul and try out some place new. I had been to Italy years back and I remembered loving the culture there. Jannah and her mum were planning to go back to the Netherlands to visit their relatives and they had invited to follow. And after the financial planning, and letting go of the wanting to go back to Seoul, I decided to take up the invitation and follow them to Netherlands. But I wasn’t there entirely for 2 weeks. I decided that since I am heading to Europe anyway, I should visit one country that I had always wanted to go. London, the United Kingdom. And so, with all the advices I could get from all different friends that I have (which I am really thankful for! love you guys so much!), and the planning, and financial part, my #summer2014 trip was planned! To London for 5 days, and the rest of the days in the Netherlands (which I had visited a couple of provinces that the country had to offer me with all the exciting Dutch stuff!) and a day at Antwerpen, Belgium (which I am really thankful for Aunty Ingrid for driving us there for a day!).

I was ecstatic! I really don’t know what to feel, really. I was just so excited because I was really looking forward to visit London and I wasn’t disappointed! Despite of the expensive transport and food (which I don’t really care much, because hey! I am in London!), I had really enjoyed being there. It’s a pity because 5 days were really too short to explore the whole of London (and I had wished I had planned to go other parts of UK, but maybe another time; like next year maybe?). I went to places that I wanted to go. I LOVE LOOKING AT BIG BEN. I know, I sound crazy. But I spent like an hour or so at that bridge looking at Big Ben and the surrounding. The weather was perfect. Cold with the touch of the heat of the sun. (I wore shorts on some days, but whatever, the weather was awwwwweeessoome!). And zomg, I went to Warners Bros Studio for Harry Potter. I WAS A TOTAL FAN GIRL. I couldn’t control my over pouring of emotions when I was there. I was not disappointed! I mean, they could have more things but whatever they have there is already enough to enlighten my fan girl moments. Took the city bus tour to have the overview feel of London as we lacked of “more time to explore” and the tour just gave me the “I need to come back to London again!” feels. And which of course, I really hope I have another chance of going there again. Insyaallah. (:

So that was London and the next stop was the Netherlands. I had a nice accommodation stay with Jannah’s aunty and she is a lovely lady with so much general knowledge of the world. She’s so hipped and cool and I don’t know, she’s just an awesome lady. Aunty Ingrid is so awesome, I think anyone who meet up with her will love her for who she is. Her house is in Utrecht, a province in Netherlands. It’s about 30 to 40 mins train ride to Amsterdam and Rotterdam and about 2 hours drive to Antwerpen, Belgium. Netherlands gave me another perspective of life. I had learned so much from there; from life choices and decisions, to experiences of people of different nations/life. Some things I learned are directly being told to me but most of the things I had learned, are from the walks, and the talks and the observing of people there (whether I had directly or indirectly in contact with them). Oh, I had also went to Volendam where the windmills are, as well as the cheese factory and their traditional Dutch shoes factory. The trip to Netherlands is more of the chilling and taking our time kind of trip. I love Amsterdam, I like Utrecht. Each places offered different sides of the Netherlands and everything is so unique. And zomg, World Cup fever was on when I was in Netherlands. I can totally feel the world cup fever gushing and running through the blood of the people of Netherlands. The country spirit was awesome. They won two games (I watched both games!) and the town was literally in orange in support of their national team! They were cheering, and celebrating (there was even like fireworks in Utrecht after they won the first game!). It was really cool to be part of this. It’s like woah, totally cool!

Unlike going to Seoul, I was kind of looking forward to go home at the end of the trip. Don’t get me wrong. I had tons of fun during this trip. Then again, every trip offers different memories, different experiences and you learn something different. I was looking forward to home on the positive side of life. I couldn’t wait to see my parents and tell them what I had learned, see, experience. This trip had taught me so many things that one cannot learn from the books. I began to develop this feeling of appreciation towards people in my life, especially to those who had played a significant role in my life, whether from the earlier days or currently. Regret accompanied this appreciation feels because there are some people who I took for granted or some who I did not express my gratitude or appreciation or whatever to them.

This feeling of appreciation that developed in me was so huge, that at times, I am overwhelmed with this discovery. I am a woman with little words (I know; boring). I hardly give compliments as well as receiving them (I don’t know, I am just not use to people complimenting me. I am just a plain Jane. Maybe even boring, but you get what I mean). I usually say nasty things or straight to your face kind of thing. I hardly express my appreciation or happiness to people. I see expression of feelings as the crumbles to the wall I had built around me for the past years. And I always believe in independence of one responsibility to life. Then, I realised, it sucks to be alone. I had been alone almost all my life, I think it’s time to open up a little of the wall to let someone come in. This is getting complicated. I will save this explanation another time. This topic is too deep for me and even thinking about it makes me kind of emotional. I have friends, wonderful friends who are there for me. I talked to them about this and sometimes I feel that I should let things out even more. Because I feel that if you let things out from whatever you are holding on to and it’s not that worth it to do so, you will feel much much, extremely better than before. And of course, say a little prayers to thank your Creator (in which whatever religion you believe in). Little prayers come in a long way, you may not see it now but somehow you know that He always listen. (:

Pretty long update. And I am looking forward for more. There are just so many things going through the head now. HAHAHA.

till then,
toodles

On a night like this,

(picture credits: wallsave)

 

Thousands of thoughts, came running to the mind.

Grasping and catching, the thoughts that are mine.

With feelings and emotions, riding and pouring out,

Would you look into my eyes, and tell me that everything will be alright?

Soft, whimpering whispers, of prayers being said,

The heart cracks a little, of what is being prayed.

Hoping and wishing, on the thread of hope,

With all these heartfelt prayers, a miracle is craved.

 

 

สวัสดีค่ะ (:

Good evening.

Currently, sitting in a very awkward feel in the living room to blog. I know, I’m weird. How can I feel awkward in my own house right? Right. Anyway, the only reason that I am currently in my living room, blogging out is because about 5minutes ago, the family decided to order take away and I am on ‘stand by’  to receive the food. I am so hungry now! The last meal I had was at like 1pm!

Anyway, the urge to update appeared out of the blue and here I am typing this out. A friend asked once why bother updating when no one reads anyway? I don’t know. Maybe writing or typing words keep me sane and life/thoughts organised It’s like a cheap therapeutic way of calming one soul. Don’t judge, everyone is different. At least I am not junking on food or staring in space and let the mind control the brain and all the unnecessary thoughts jumbled together to give me that hazy fuzzy feel about life.

So . . . my life since the last updated post has been . . . challenging. I think I have been using the word ‘challenging’ tad too much for my liking. I mean, I can use words such as difficult or tough but I feel that it’s not difficult, it is just challenging. Like I feel that if I am to use the word difficult, it just has that negative feel and I probably get through my days every day with ease. Challenging is more like of a challenge, where if I can complete the challenge, I achieve something and that feeling I get is pleasant, positive kind of feel. So yes, my days/life have been challenging. I am not complaining, really. If I am complaining, I have already begin ranting at the start of this post.

SAMSUNG CSC

Any oh how, I had a short mini trip out of the challenging days. A trip to Bangkok with Jouie, a day after term 1 ended. It was a really nice, relaxing, chilling 7 days trip (despite of the hot sun but I had fun under the sun). We were really taking our time to go places, shopping, eating, dreaming, sleeping, chilling during our trip. And the hotel that we stayed at was fabbbbbbbb! A total recommendation from me to you (whoever is reading this anyway). The hotel is Berkeley Hotel at Pratunam. A newly built and opened only last year, everything about the hotel is good. Nothing much to complain about (except that they need to have more variety for the breakfast [but there are already a lot –  from western to asian food; and they will have one counter where everyday, the menu for that particular counter changed according to whichever they are serving]). The hotel services are excellence and everyday we come back to clean towels and really really neat made beds (as if it was our first day entering our room). So yes, check the hotel out if you guys are heading to Bangkok. Currently, my favourite hotel out of all the hotels I have been to  (whether it is in Bangkok or other places).

So the trip ended with a bittersweet note. Sweet because we had totally kind of max our leave and had the best relax days since the start of the year and bitter because leave is ending and work was coming. Bangkok will one of the few places that I will frequent now and the future! (oh ya, no riots or protests when we were there. It was kind of funny because everyone there were like ‘you came at the right time. The protest just stopped’ and we were ‘yeah…..’ because we don’t really know how to react to that, you see).

So term 2 is here or rather, the ongoing term. Challenged days had gone by and challenging days coming up. The current motivation for me to go through the challenging days is the upcoming summer trip! Really excited and I still can’t believe I have already book my flights! A pity as of now that I can sit and research on the things I want to do. Work is piling and other personal commitments (like losing weight, watching my diet, planning winter and 2015 trips, strengthening all sort of relationships with people [family included] are also piling. Fret not, Insyallah, everything will be done soon and I can sit down and do some research for summer!

So … I was reading this post again and there is really no main agenda of this entry. I just felt the need to just log in and type something because yeah, too many things in the mind.

So till then,
toodles

 

Bring me flowers

2014-01-31-20-10-23_deco2013 adventures in 4 seasons.
Bangkok, Seoul, Beijing, Seoul
(Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter)

HAPPY NEW YEAR! SELAMAT TAHUN BARU! 新年快乐! あけまして おめでとう ございます! 새해 복 많이 받으세요! BONNE ANNÉE! สวัสดีปีใหม่ ! FELICE ANNO NUOVO! FROHES NEUES JAHR! FELIZ AÑO NUEVO!

OMG. I am just so bad at updating the space. Like, I have ten thousands of inspirations since December 25th to log in and typed everything that was running through my head but just didn’t do so just because I am busy. Terrible bad excuse I am telling you first. Busy is just so common nowadays to use as an excuse; whether it’s for personal or social time or whatever. Personally hate to use busy as an excuse but well, sometimes I have to, I guess. The minute I had reached Singapore on December 25th, after the awesome short meet up slash breakfast with Finah (because she’s such an angel and awesome friend of mine who picked me up in the morning [my flight reached Singapore at 6am btw] and we had starbucks for breakfast), I am back to work. Literally, in the forms of emails and planning and catching up my breath with personal and social life, which was not that bad considering that I am okay with being busy and packed schedule because I hate doing nothing except when I am on vacation/holiday. But in the midst of “being busy“, I had missed having my me time.

And so, we bid farewell to 2013 just about a month and 9 days ago. 2014 is a brand new year. 365 days of memories waiting to be created, life choices and decisions to be made, mending broken relationships, letting go of things, people, memories. A brand new year where opportunities are waiting for you to do what you want to do and what you want to achieve.

To be  honest, I am excited. I can’t remember when was the last time I am actually excited for a brand year. But yes, I am excited for 2014. I don’t really know why but I have this feeling a lot of things are going to take place and changes are expected. Both the good and bad, of course. And I think 2014 will be the year of changes. Like lots of changes. And plus, I am going to be in my mid 20s this year (25 years old, in case you can’t count). Like really. Can’t believe time just flew by like that. Fly ~

I haven’t exactly set down the goals I wanted to achieve this year but already have a few that I am determined to achieve it. Some goals in 2013 was put on hold last year and I am bringing the goals in 2013 in the hopes that I can fulfill it by the time the year ends. There are so so many things I want to do in 2014, I don’t know where to start. I had learned so much in 2013, I can’t wait to put some of the things that I have learned into good use.

One thing that I had learned in 2013, I really need that time alone with myself. A break from everything and everyone. That moment when I am really alone, my mind actually clears up and I can think clearly with whatever issues I was facing at that point of time. A bit sad, in a way because only when I am alone, I realised the actual issue(s) that I have in me. And then it’s kind of a little weird, because usually when you are alone, stupid thoughts will attack you and you can’t breathe and then you will be finding people to talk to and all. Yes, I know that feeling. I have that all the time whenever I am facing issues in life. But I realize, being alone means I can be one with myself and somehow I am able to construct whatever I had issues with and seeing them myself. I can’t solve everything alone of course but being one with myself, I am able to understand myself better. Like really better with no influences from other people (which is not really a bad thing, really). It’s lonely but I have been alone since like  forever. So being alone isn’t that bad. Then again, being lonely and being alone are totally different things. So I like being alone (even though I get the lonely feels sometime).

I have so many people to thank to who had/have been there for me in 2013. I don’t think I was able to get through the start of 2013 without the help of these people. My 2013 started really bad and all I want to do is hide and do nothing at all. It got really bad a few months after that. Things only start to pick up at the second half of the year which I am really thankful for. I don’t really remember how I manage to even pull through 2013 but I really glad I did. Plus the deserving trip I had to Seoul in December, it was a nice wrap up to my 2013.

Okay here goes (even though I have no idea who reads my blog anyway but I am just going to post this anyway).

The thank you list (in no particular order)

  1. Jouie, Jasmine, Merilyn. Thank you for being there from the start of us being in PL. I have no idea what I will do without you girls. I get my strength and motivation from you to get through the days in school and to be a better person, a better teacher for my students. Sorry for the annoyance and random nonsense that I always do but that will still be continued in 2014 and I know you girls don’t really mind anyway, I am such a great entertainer (with Jouie)! Cheers to this friendship formed and may we get better and stronger in the year ahead! LOVE YOU GIRLS PLENTY! ^^
  2. Mr. David. For being the most awesome dad a girl could ever have. I think I wouldn’t be here without your ultimate support and motivation and your fabulous upbringing for me. I love how you make me independent by letting me having a space of my own and only to intervene when you feel that I’m doing things out of hand. I sincerely appreciate of the advices that you gave and continue to give and I really love that you have vast general knowledge of anything that I can think of. Thank for you being there for me all these while. I love you daddy! (:
  3. Moses’ Daughter (Amina Maisara). Sincerely, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for being a dear friend to me. Thank you for guiding me back to the path that I should be heading and reminding me that it’s okay to question and be curious about my faith. For being there from the start of my career journey and keeping my nonsense secrets from the world. You are one of my treasured friend Amina and I am planning to keep you in my life till Jannah (InsyaAllah) ^^ .
  4. Detective/Partner in Crime (Finah). Despite of our age differences, it was never an issue when you and I sit down and talk. Just talk about you and me, about our differences in life, about the struggles and challenges, about the fun and adventurous things that happen, about the past, the present and the future, about everything under the sun. I had always enjoyed our conversations. And our investigations skills are almost flawless when combined! I am looking forward for more adventures in whatever our life brings us to or what we bring to our life. Love you lil’ girl! 😀
  5. Ng Cai Yu (CY). You are one of my juniors that I still keep in touch with and one of the juniors that I know (and feel) that our bonding together just get better as days passed. There so many things that I have learnt from you. You have no idea how you actually inspired me in some aspect of my life. I am still learning and I am not the best person that you can talk to for advices and such. But I will be here in 2014 and the years after like how I think I have been there for you in 2013 and the years before. I will cheering you on your life journey towards achieving your goals. And hey, if you need anyone to just talk, I am just a phonecall away (: (p/s: and of course, our love for the two boys theogun <3)
  6. Maimunah. Like Finah, our age differences doesn’t mean anything between you and me. Like Cai Yu, you are one of my juniors that I still keep in touch with and one of the few that I am close to. Despite of your nonsensical childish self, you are a wonderful young lady who have yet to discover your calling in life and believe me when I say, you are much more mature than me in some aspect of life. I haven’t been there for you as much as I would like to but I am always here if you need me. And we still have to sit down together to talk and settle what you need to do to take that one step forward towards what you want to do in life. We had an adventure in 2013, looking forward for next. (:
  7. Raihan, Farzanah. The two have no idea how much you girls make a difference in my life. I love the two of you (even though I hardly express my love to the two of you). I always enjoy our time together despite of our numerous failed outings like going to the movie ends up going to eat instead and stuff like that. Although you girls spam the group chat like there’s no tomorrow, I don’t really mind because you guys make the day better with your nonsenses (: I am glad we are still together after leaving DD. Thank you for being there in 2013 and let’s continue to have a blast in 2014 and the years after! ^^  (p/s: Farzanah, 선생님 asked when are we going back for class!)
  8. 영현언니. 보고싶어 ): Thank your for your hospitality during my stay (almost all) in Seoul. In December last year where we spent a lot of time together, I have learned so much from you – from being a young lady, to achieving goals, to become a better person. So many things that you have indirectly taught me everything I am in Seoul. We got closer as time goes on and your random occasional texts always make me smile and miss you more. I can’t wait to see you again 언니! Keep in touch and time will pass till I see you again! 많이 감사합니다! 사랑해!

These are some of the people that I want to thank. Please don’t be mad. There are many other people who have made my 2013 lovely and I am sorry if you are not being mentioned. But really, for those who have made 2013 awesome, thank you so much. I hope 2014 will be a blast for all of us!

SAMSUNG CSCHad adventures with friends, work and self in 2013. Used up most of my leave for friends and personal trip last year. I am not sure how 2014 travels will go about. Definitely lesser than last year I assumed. But definitely going back to the usual place in December, I guess. I don’t really know because I am the kind of person who will just go with the flow. Depending on financial, flight and accommodation availability and of course, spontaneity, I will go wherever I think I will want to go at that moment in time. So surprise me 2014, surprise me. And of course, the plans that had been crafted earlier, I am coming after you.

And of course, in 2014, it’s all about the #gojer attitude or #justgo attitude.

till then,

Say something

It’s that time of the year again, where I  am all alone, sitting somewhere with a cup of coffee and my macbook. Just a year ago, I had done this, somewhat, end of year entry in Seoul. To be exact, at one my favourite spot in Seoul. Wanted to do that again this year, but I had spent the last night at a new found favourite spot up in that Namsan tower with a cup of green tea latte. Urm, yeah if you had read between the gibberish words I had typed, I am in Seoul right now. To be exact, at Incheon Airport, waiting for my flight to go back to the sunny (but currently rainy) Singapore.

HAHA. I don’t know who really reads my space here but for those of you who do, yes, I have been frequently flying to Seoul for the past 2 years or so. Please, don’t ask me why. If you have that one favourite place out of your own country but despite of exploring another place, you just want to go back to that favourite place of yours, would you? I don’t know about you but that’s what I am all about. And please, before the lectures of wasting money and time about going back to the same place, I have heard it over and over again. So just forget about lecturing me about this, alright?

Anyway, one thing strikes off my bucket list. Really all out solo this round. This solo trip was born out of the impulsive spontaneous mind of mine that I just want to book a trip to Seoul in December just when I had came back from Seoul in June. Yes, that impulsive. Do I regret it? No.

I had enjoyed every single moment of my time here. I had the chance to be alone because after all the months of being with people, I need that space to be alone. Yes, I can be alone in Singapore but people will eventually find you and Singapore is kindda small and you will just bump into people, especially when you shared the same favourite place. Getting out of the country was an option for me. I had been wanting to do this for ageeessss. And I glad I did it. And this won’t be the last solo trip.

It’s rejuvenating, really. Exploring by yourself in this cool winter season. And what did I do this round? Basically… nothing. Just relaxing, chilling, walking around, sleeping at home, exploring here and there, café hopping and thinking. Yes, been thinking alone. Been reflecting about my environment and myself. Revisiting my goals and dreams. Been doing that “self” finding moments here in Seoul.

And it’s nice you know, be lost in the crowd where no one knows you and you can just be whoever you want at that moment. And the faces you see, the people you hear talking, everyone has their own stories in that crowd, and you don’t exactly know what they are or who they are. I like being lost in that crowd, because people don’t know me and vice versa. It’s like an escape from being yourself for a while and you let yourself be guided by the crowd to wherever you need to go.

I have about 20 mins before my flight is being called. I really hope to find some time when I am back in Singapore to blog whatever I had felt and thought about during my 2 weeks stay here in Seoul. And I think I am pretty determined to do so before 2014 arrives.

With all the rushing of repacking of my things, Merry Christmas everyone!

Hello space.

A really quick update.

I missed typing word after word, building up a paragraph after a paragraph. I missed that moment when I can just sit down at the comfort zone with a cup of coffee in my hand and gathering my thoughts, forming them into words and sentences and just let it burst through the fingertips typing it all out.

1043985_10151574499076655_1447444018_n

To sum up my life since the last update, BUSY.

It’s a pretty bad excuse to not update this space of mine but all I want to do every single day is to just catch up the hours of sleep that I had missed or to just snuggle under my blankets (yes, even though Singapore’s weather screams HOT AND HUMID). I am just that tired and I swear I have a lot of things in my mind to just let out.

But being this busy is good. It’s the healthy kind of busy. I enjoy my work and I think as of now, there’s nothing more than this, more than where I want to be. These past months had been eventful. So many things that had happened, so many feelings and emotions got invested, so many wonderful, painful, beautiful memories created. I have no idea where to start, really. One thing for sure, this kind of busy is my kind of busy. It’s something that I had adapted to back in the diploma days where I had 6 days of intensive band rehearsals (and sectionals) every week  on top of the regular school hours and where Mondays were my only off days which I have school to attend to you. It’s the kind of busy I had missed, a kind of busy where I know I was being productive and wasting no time at all.

Then again, being this busy makes you lose few things or so. I haven’t been going out to enjoy myself for ages. I have overdue meet ups with friends that were sealed with words and promises but I just had no time to make time to meet and chill because I had been busy in other parts of my life (i.e. work and language classes) and keep postponing just because … I was busy. Heck, I haven’t had any me time for myself. There last me time I had was back in summer in Seoul, where I was wondering around in circles, exploring, having a cup of good damn coffee and slices of tiramisu and a couple of donuts.

And here I am now, typing this out because I finally got the time and motivation to log in and update this space of mine. I am on leave, and all that I have been doing since the start of my leave is sleep. Yes, sleep. I only go out when my friends ask me out. Other than that, I am at home, in the comfort of my room, sleeping, resting, nua-ing. I know I know. I am wasting like chunks and chunks of time but I guess I had reached my peak of exhaustion that the minute I was on leave, my whole body shuts down to just recuperate – physically, mentally, emotionally.

Anyway, pictures highlighting the events that had occurred the past months.

A very good friend of mine got married back in September! (: So happy for her! It was two days worth of celebration and had enjoyed every moment of it. Wishes the best in her marriage and last forever babe! ^^ One down, 6 more to go.

I finally went to Universal Studio Singapore (USS) courtesy of my work. I know, loser. HAHAHA. I am just the kind of person who wouldn’t pay to go in such places because I don’t play rides. I know, loser again. HAHAHA. I AM TERRIFIED OF RIDES. LIKE WOAHHHHHHHH. Actually, I will go ah. Just that I will have a hard time parting away from the money spent ……

1010157_10151797870851655_1434845819_n

One thing strike out of the bucket list! I WENT TO THE DAMN GREAT WALL OF CHINA!!!!! HAHAHA. Sorry the sudden burst. Been wanting to go since the day I know of its existence and the day I went, I was like woahh, I am really here!  Didn’t went up all the way because of the time constraint but I would love to go again to finish climbing. Was told that we have about 1 – 2 more fortress before the end. RAWRR, that will be on my bucket list – to climb all the way to the top of the great wall of China!

A pretty dorky kind of post but there are so many things I want to update so that I can read it over and over again in future with the stupid goofy smile on my face. That being said, I think I have reach the limit of my words capacity and the time to blog.

till then,

Of café and latté

Bukchon

And about 6 months later, I’m back at the same café that I was at on my last night of #winter2012 holidays. It’s summer now, and the weather is just… damn hot. I really like winter, more than I like summer. But I like both seasons, so I guess I’m just fine with anything.

Anyway, things had been good so far but I think it won’t last long before all the pile of work loading, attending a weekly course on top of the weekly lessons that I am currently enrolled. Next major event will be Hari Raya Celebration which means fasting month is just around the corner! I will be a (better) saint and do what I am suppose to do and hopefully this time, there’s a change in me or something, spiritually or rather religiously. Or rather, I want to be a better person that I already am right now (I am good, but I think I have the potential to be better, you know?).

Graduation

FINALY, attended my graduation ceremony last month. Waited for almost a year just for this day when I had received the paper, I mean the certificate, of my studies in Bachelor of Psychology. It was a huhuhaha thing because hey! this bloody paper cost almost S$60k! And going on stage to take the degree is like woohooo, I’m done with my bachelor studies yo! And the excitement dies a bit, because it was just a piece of paper after all the damn hardwork that was put in. Then again, isn’t this life? Studying, getting your papers (certificates, i mean) and get a job. I may be just whining about how all the hardwork I had put in translate to just a piece of paper but I cannot really express my joy when I had actually received that piece of paper. I mean, I had manage to finish the full course of education a Singaporean child expected to do. Albeit I didn’t do A levels. I had survived  3 years of pre-school education, 6 years of primary school education earning myself a PSLE certificate  4 years of secondary school education where I got my O levels certificate and instead of enrolling to do A levels at a Junior college, I completed a 3 years of education in Polytechnic earning myself a Diploma in Property Development and Facilities Management and then, I just got myself a Bachelor of Psychology degree upon completing my undergraduate studies of 3 1/2 years. That’s like 19 1/2 years of my life spent on studying. I’m 24 this year, mind you. HAHA. This paragraph sounds ridiculously annoying. I had just spent the less 5 minutes typing this out about the number of years I went through studying. THEN again, this is not the end. I’m already targeting 2015 to be the year I will be doing my graduate studies in education or maybe education psychology or just psychology. Who knows?

It’s true you know, when they say learning doesn’t stop. It’s a journey. A journey to find more knowledge and wisdom. Learning won’t stop until you take your last breath.

I’ve been sitting at the cafe since 7pm and I don’t want to go home yet! Am so comfy in this cafe and I have yet to finish the tiramisu! A Twosome Coffee tiramisu is really a cake to die for! I lost my track of thoughts, and I guess it’s time for me to pack up and head back home.

till then,
toodles!
