Hello July

Hello July

Hello July~!

& HELLO my dear readers! πŸ˜€

Ok so, this post is gonna be another one of those long rambling-ish thought post.

July is my month, my birthday month! So I am very happy! πŸ˜€

But I am also not so happy because I have not received a favourable reply from the company that I would like to work with… I have not received a confirmed YES or NO reply from them.

But I feel that I need to document this moment down, this state of – uncertainty, not knowing where exactly I am headed towards, what step I am going to take next.

And the reason is, I am not worried, I am assured that I WILL have job. Not only I will have a job, but I WILL HAVE THE JOB THAT GOD HAS PLANNED FOR ME. AMEN!!!

Ok so, this post really is just a declaration of faith, that I am ready to receive the next step of my career, my life direction from God… πŸ˜€

And I hope this post will encourage you, if you are feeling lost, don’t know what to do, just pray, declare out loud that you are ready to receive what God has in will and plan and mind for you!

Now go and enjoy your July, my July, our July! And I will update where I am headed to next when I know it! Like soon!

Be Beautiful, Inside and Out!


B’s La Luxe Vita Birthday

Bini La Luxe Vita


This year, my best friend in Lasalle, Bini threw a luxe party at Marina Bay Sand’s Ku de ta, treating a cozy group of her closest friends to dinner and after dinner drinks! πŸ™‚

I count myself very blessed to have B as my best friend, having gone through most parts of Lasalle together and many similar friendship related mis-experiences/dramas that I’m sure in time to come, we will look back in laughter and hopefully fondness as well.

Check out Bini’s blog here.

I’ll now let the photos do the talking! (:

Less than half a year to go before we all graduate!Β :’)
Here’s to more parties with these fab girls.

High Tea @ Arteastiq


In this post I’m sharing photos I took with some of my lovely classmates while we were celebrating Rach and Belle’s birthday at Arteastiq @ Mandarin Gallery. (:

Arteastiq Tea Lounge at Mandarin Gallery is a beautiful place ideal for afternoon tea and snacks with your girlfriends or loved ones. In another area just next to the cafe area is an Art Jamming area where customers can indulge in some creative time of canvas painting free style or under guidance! Pretty cool idea huh! (;

A group shot with the girls. From behind L to R: Ser Li, Pris, Shi Hui & Shella. Front L to R: Myself, Belle & Rach!

Some of the snacks we ordered including Salmon with bread, Beef Sandwiches, and Duck Crepes. I would recommend and go back for the Salmon and Duck choices. Beef Sandwich was a little too much bread and not enough beef.

My Hazelnut Latte coffee set! ^^ It was great ! The concoction and temperature of the drink was perfect. Plus it came with a packet of two thin chocolate love letter biscuit which was fantastic when paired with the warm drinks!

Other drinks the girls had and would recommend: Pear flavored tea, either hot or cold are both great.Β Hot chocolate.

With birthday girl Rachel who loves Polka Dots! (:

One more group shot at the entrance. (:
It’s always great to have friends in school that have similar interests and passions in life. Love you girls! Gonna treasure the months counting down to my final year in school! (:

If you’ve visited this place before and have tried something you’d recommend, leave a comment and let me know! (;

My 2011 Christmas ;)

Hello ! Hope your January is starting out well… whether you are at school or at work!

I meant to post up photos from my Christmas celebration with my cell group but… I realize the pictures are not with me and it’s kind of late for it anyways. So.. just one cute shot of the really pretty and tasty cookies baked by Claire’s mum! πŸ˜‰

I had Christmas eve dinner with my sister, Claire and Xue li at Aston’s. πŸ˜‰

On the 30th Dec, (after my last day of internship!) I headed down to Singapore Recreational Club @ Padang to meet Jean – friend of Khai and Sofie. It was Sofie’s birthday party and Khai sweetly prepared a surprise party for her at the hotel. It was very smart of Khai to request Jean to decorate the room before hand. Haha. πŸ™‚

With the beautiful Sofie !

Sofie and her fiance, Khai. They are getting married coming November!

Stunning couple… πŸ˜‰

With Stacey and Sofie.With the girls – Jean, Stacey, Sofie and Cassey!The beautiful city skyscraper scene from SRC president’s hotel room.

It feels good to be back in school… But we were thrown a curve ball – a multi-specialism group project to be completed in 5 days! Having to juggle school, real estate night lessons, Β Transmission lab art exhibition video project and church commitments requires a lot of discipline and energy and somedays the stress gets to me.

But on the up side, God answered my prayer by giving me a very lovely group of project-mates and even though due to some unexpected circumstances some work was delayed, we are still carrying through this project with a positive spirit !!! πŸ˜€

Praying and wishing everyone all the best for the project!!! Wish me all the best and break a leg! Hahahaha. x)


Ser Li’s Sexy 21st Birthday Party~!

Back in November, my classmate invited a few girls and I to her 21st party and it was a blast! πŸ™‚ It was really great catching up with the girls after 3 weeks of internship! Finally some bonding with girls our age and think alike. Haha. πŸ™‚

Ser Li prepared some very awesome props and we definitely goof-ed around in it!

Here’s with Christabelle!Β 

Christa, Rach, Shella, Bev, Clara and Ser Li!


With Rach!

And the birthday girl!

The girls in red… Like all prepared for CNY 2012! Haha. πŸ˜‰

Ser Li’s awesome pretty pink icing on the outside lemon flavoured cake! Very sweet and sinful. πŸ™‚

And the sexy birthday girl with the card I made for her! I am glad it goes very well with her sexy red and black baroque theme. The heart shapes motifs were a winning guess! πŸ™‚

Turning 21st is a milestone and it can get pretty mundane after attending several in the year.. But when it has a good theme and great company, it’s always a joy to attend!

My week has been a daunting and stressful one – somehow there were a lot of technical work difficulties at work for me and my colleagues. I am praying and hoping for a stress-free three more week to the end of my internship and the end of the year!

I am also busy preparing and planning for church cell group activities and Trans. Lab collaborative project with Gilda. I am praying hard that these will go smoothly!

It will be a crazy three weeks to the end of the year and I know the crazy will not end until February next week – Trans. Lab Exhibition! It’s all very exciting, adrenaline rushing and frightful at the same time.

Wish me luck and please pray for me! πŸ™‚

Bonne Week-end!


Pictures | Rockin’ 21st Party!

Hello ~!

As promised, here’s the collection of photos from my recent 21st Birthday party! πŸ™‚

There’s something I’ve been holding in a long time and I haven’t told anyone in particular about it. I won’t be naming names so here goes the story. About 1 year plus ago I was asked to be a friend’s date for an army ball. I wasn’t very close to the friend but I agreed. Then about 4 months ago I came to know that the friend’s gay. I don’t condemn gays and I have gay friends. It’s just that I feel… used. Because we’re not very close, when he came out (on fb, friends told me about it), he didn’t tell me about it and we also didn’t talk about it because although I’m pretty open about such things, it can be pretty awkward and I won’t initiate to talk about it. But I would have really appreciated it if he had told me then, before the ball that he’s gay and he needed a date. But then again, maybe he wasn’t clear about his orientation then. And I guess I just have no guts to talk to him about it now. Oh wells. That’s why I’m talking about it here.

Ok but why I mentioned this is because it made me feel like TIME PASSES SO QUICKLY!!! In this one year, that friend came out, posted a lot of photos of him and his other (I assume) gay friends on fb. And like I just feel that in one year so much can happen! Β It really did seem just like yesterday that I celebrated my birthday last year.Β But like for me I feel like my one year didn’t have many things happening. It felt pretty stagnant, and that’s sad.

My last day of internship ends tmr!!! I bought presents for my colleagues – Merci chocolates, Cadbury Old Gold Liqueur flavoured chocolates, Alicafe premium gold coffee and Dilmah gourmet tea ! I <3 Coffee, tea and chocolates and they make excellent gifts! Going to wrap them now and go to sleep. πŸ˜€


I’m 21!

Hello guys & girls! I’m officially legal! Not that there’s anything I’m dead eager to do with my officially legal age… To me, being 21 is just another number! In fact I think being 20 is a bigger milestone for me, or rather was a bigger milestone because at 20, I was no longer a “teen” ! LOL. Ok, now I’m an adult! And I’m not exactly looking forward to it cause it entails tons of responsibilities! *Shudders*

It’s actually really late now, so here’s just a preview of the photos from my pre-birthday party on Friday! I’ll upload the rest with captions another time soon! I think I’ll also be uploading photos of my Batam trip with friends although the photos aren’t glam but it was a pretty fun trip with the great and fun company! πŸ™‚

Here’s me with the cake my friends bought/surprised me with at TCC! πŸ™‚

With the awesome bunch of girls! We go way back from secondary school! How time flies!!!With the boys all looking cool in black & white! m/
And me posing with a hand drawing Yiting drew for me! πŸ˜‰ Btw I was wearing a bandana that was the party favour! Cool huh! πŸ˜€

I really enjoyed the dinner at TCC cause the food was good. πŸ™‚ However I was pretty disappointed with the Ying & Yang bar because there was a miscommunication with my reservation. I reserved for 20 but ended up with 6?! >: ( Thankfully they managed to resolved it but it was unfortunate that we went after a rain so it was pretty hot and humid at the alfresco rooftop bar. Thankfully I asked the girls to retire to the room first cause the rain came pouring down while I was settling the bill and while the boys waited with me… Settling the bill was… another nightmare cause it was super crowded, plus confusion from the rain and I didn’t transfer enough cash into my current account (from my savings account, gasp!) so I had to ask a friend to foot half of it first, lol! All in all I don’t think the bar was a good idea although the drinks (and arguably, service) were pretty good. But the crowd was mainly caucasians and the music was mehhh.

The Club Hotel was pretty good though! My friends were pretty impressed with the place, especially with the decor and the white carpet (a lot more so than I was, haha) so it’s a place I’d go back, for a cosy night with fewer people/head count. πŸ™‚

All in all I think the party was a success, I enjoyed the parts of spontaneity, like the surprise cake for me at TCC but unfortunately my friends and I were mostly tired/exhausted from work/internship/army/uni-camps that we just didn’t have the stamina nor mood to last through the night. That made me pretty disappointed and I kicked a small fuss (pseudo mad, saying “like that la, leave early when I booked you 3 weeks in advance” talk) with the boys who had to leave early. (Even though after they left, all we did was just sleep cause really we were too tired, HAHA)

On the whole I’d say I enjoyed the experience and I think it’s a success if my friend enjoyed themselves. Hopefully they weren’t just placating me when they say they did. But truthfully I felt pretty down after the party, partly because of PMS (aka pre-menstrual syndromes) which made me emo (plus bloated which sucked max cause I looked fatter in my birthday photos, sigh). And the whole prep of this birthday party and post party made me sad cause I’d rather not celebrate my birthday because I think the whole point of birthdays is for others to celebrate/kick a big fuss over you. But I guess this time round, I decided to do it mostly for my friends(part get-to-gether, part dressing up in fun) and I think I’d consider it worth while. But I guess it’s fair to say that while I did enjoy myself, and I don’t regret organizing it, I’d still rather if someone else did the whole hoo-ha for me instead.

And I think the thing that made me most upset was this time around, people that I was really close to and mattered a lot to me, just wasn’t around. Maybe it’d be fairer to say that people who are supposedly closer to me, disappointed me. I don’t think it’s unfair for me to expect of certain things. But also with time, I’ve come to accept not to have much expectations so I won’t be disappointed. Honestly, I don’t care much about my birthday, especially this year. I did this 21st birthday really for the heck of it. Ever since I was 19, I don’t really care about my birthday.

Side tracking, this year felt pretty weird, cause I celebrated it on 15 July and 17 July itself I didn’t treat or felt as if it was my birthday, lol. I met up with a group of friends and only 2 out of 6 know it’s my birthday and they didn’t celebrate for/with me. I’d be disappointed 2 years back, but now It’s not that I don’t care, but I accept that certain people/friends are like that.

Ok, the thing is birthday happens to be a good indication of who you’re closer to, who bothers to celebrate with you/facebook/sms you. And although I fully agree that friendship isn’t based on what he/she does on your birthday, it happens to be a pretty good indication for me, between my best friends. And I guess, in this case(s), disappointment isn’t the word. But that the prognosis is simply that we are no longer as close as we use to be and its a little saddening. And the realisation hits me that I’m just not close to any people in particular anymore. Increasingly I keep all my private and not so private thoughts to myself, my blog and my twitter, and that’s sad. Although looking on the bright side, I have also made new friends via my blog and twitter, haha.

So moving on, life’s like that. We move on, we meet new friends. We keep in contact with old friends, we deepen or we could burn old ties. It all depends, but all I can say is that it takes two to clap and though I admit I can be pretty cold and aloof, many times it also happens to the the people I meet, the friends I make that made me this way. Oof!

I sure am not as optimistic as I was before, but it isn’t to say that I’d remain this way. I’ve had a negative outlook for a long time and I’d like a positive change right about now. I’ve shared a lot more than I intended and it’s time for me to go sleep!

Let another week of work begin and then 1 week of real holiday then school! Ah! I just can’t believe time flies so quickly!


My sister Lu Jia and I with her new toys Minilove (my gift to her) and Giraffe no.6 (she doesnt give them names).
