RAINY DAY UPDATE

Today is a rainy day and I have decided to laze around without a care in the world (▰˘v˘▰) Such nice weather is undeserving of anything less.

I've been neglecting my blog because the past few weeks have been crazy. 3 essays, 2 speeches and 1 Random Blends, among many other things.

Well, the worst is over and I survived!!! It is time to revive my blog.

Wandering around Fullerton area with kh

Being a very unwilling photo subject, haha. I am too awkward, self-conscious and camera shy for this.

This is the best photo of me because my face is not shown.
"You want me to walk up the stairs? How far? Am I walking too fast? Quickly take!"

Impromptu lunch to celebrate Esther's birthday!
1-for-1 lunch at La Nonna, followed by my first taste of an acai bowl at Project Acai.

We were supposed to visit Artbox today but decided to postpone it due to the weather. I think half of us went to nap in the end, hahaha. Why are we always choosing naps over outings.

BABY YOU LIGHT UP MY WORLD LIKE NOBODY ELSE

Ew I can't believe I quoted One Direction lyrics in my title. Cheesy and cliched af.

Anyway. I am too stressed out to do any work, so imma spam some photos taken at iLight! There was nothing much, so I only have two photos of the actual iLight installations.

With my fave MBS in the background

Woah woah, photographer in action siol

Woah woah, photographer in action part 2 

I was creepily taking photos of this couple lol

Eh hello, trying to take photo why you smiling to your phone instead??!?!

Ok I got mah photo (▰˘v˘▰)

I am feeling extremely stressed out these days, although it's mostly self-imposed. So I end up worrying like crazy about all the work I have to do, ironically to the point where I lose the mood to do anything. I know people get Monday blues, but this time I look forward to Monday because it signified a fresh new start.

Also, next week is gonna be the Random Blends exhibition!!! Drop by ArtScience museum from 24-26th March to take a look! Free exhibition at ArtScience Museum, why not?

VSCO II

Played with VSCO all afternoon because screw deadlines. Some photos from Korea:





I guess this is a continuation from my previous VSCO post.

WEEK 8 REMEDY: MILKY WAY COLD BREW

atlas coffeehouse milky way white cold brew coffee review

It is week 8 of school and I am feeling the stress from my many impending deadlines.

Made a detour to Atlas Coffeehouse yesterday because I wanted to try their white cold brew (aka The Milky Way).

Brought back 2 bottles to drink in the subsequent mornings, because splurging $7 per bottle motivates me to be productive. Strange, but true.

It's quite strong, which is typical of cold brew coffee, so I have a major case of caffeine buzz right now.

I think I prefer the white cold brew from Old Hen Coffee Bar simply because it's sweeter and milkier. Sorry, I am not some coffee connoisseur who likes my coffee black and raw. I am just a coffee noob, sue me.

VSCO

Left things to the last minute and had to rush my speech outline today.

Decided to take a very undeserved break and ended up editing some photos that I took in Korea. I was mostly just experimenting with the VSCO settings.










I also got bored and created a Dayre account today.

SINGAPORE BIENNALE 2017 - AN ATLAS OF MIRRORS

I love going to museums because it's a very cheap way to entertain yourself for hours.

Also, I am a basic bitch who takes the same clichéd photos as half the Instagram population. Sometimes I find it shallow af, and wonder if it's a good or bad thing that an artwork's popularity is often based on how Instagram-worthy it is. But that's a discussion for another day.

Anyway, I've recently fallen in love with VSCO, so I am acting artsy with all the heavy edits here.



I know I made it seem like the exhibition was full of the titular mirrors, but I swear this was not the case. We just happened to take photos of the mirrored ones, oops.

Wandered over to Fort Canning after that and took more random photos.


This photo kinda represents how I feel about the current semester. I can't wait to reach the light at the end of the tunnel.

♡ALENTINE'S DAY

I spent Valentine's Day going to class then heading for a job interview, hahahahaha.

I think I am relatively indifferent towards the whole Valentine's Day hooha. Decided to celebrate it on another day since I would be too tired after 6 hours of lessons on the 14th. To be honest, I would much rather avoid the Valentine's Day crowd anyway.

"Later people think I abuse you" hahaha I would like to clarify that I was the one who suggested Carl's Jr for our Valentine's dinner.

Planned to watch the sunset at the beach but it was too cloudy + we were lazy to walk all the way in + the Sentosa boardwalk was really nice as well.

No sunset but there were nice pink skies!

"I think you will scold me but I got you flowers" HAHAHA. Because I mentioned several times how flowers were a waste of money and I didn't need them. And I said I especially didn't want big bouquets since they're so extravagant, so he went into the shop asking for the smallest bouquet they have and the florist thought he was being cheapskate. HAHAHAHA.

I think I'd much prefer something simple for Valentine's day. Anywhere too atas intimidates me and makes me too self-conscious.

My idea of a tortuous meal involves having to pretend I like wine, feeling obligated to eat everything off my plate because the place is too sophisticated for picky eaters, being overly aware of my table manners and constantly wondering if my elbows should be off the table or whether I am lady-like enough.

Why am I such an uncultured swine, hahahahaha.

IT'S ANOTHER DAY OF SUN

I am feeling productive today and so I shall blog ‘٩꒰。•◡•。꒱۶’ Titled this post after the La La Land soundtrack that is super catchy, upbeat and stuck in my head.

Productivity vibes

AS8 feels so calm and peaceful in the morning (▰˘v˘▰)
Managed to achieve my goal of waking up at 6am, whoop whoop! Reached school early to do some work, because I love the peace and quiet before everyone starts streaming in.

Also, I looove the cappuccino from The Coffee Roaster! It doesn't have that acidic taste that makes coffee taste like the devil's pee, and $3.20 for a regular cup seems reasonable for an early morning pick-me-up.

Stranger's Reunion v2.0

Decided to have lunch at Stranger's Reunion since I haven't been there since they revamped.

Crabcake Reunion ($18.90)
THE CRABCAKE REUNION WAS AN UTTER DISAPPOINTMENT.

I expected to taste some crab meat, considering the hole it burnt in my pocket, but it just tasted like mashed potatoes - there was no taste of crab meat at all. I did not pay $18.90 for eggs and potatoes.

Not sure if mine was exceptionally underwhelming, or if they are always this giam siap with their crabcakes. Oh well, lesson learnt.

Buttermilk Waffles with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and fresh fruits ($12.90)
I really missed their waffles and thankfully this did not disappoint! Still the same old warm, fluffy and fragrant waffle - this hits the spot every. single. time.

Went to explore The Pinnacle@Duxton. Clearly my photography skills are non-existent.

Hehe I really liked this photo.

TU4N 圆饭

And because the CNY vibes are still going strong, met up with the T4 batch mates for reunion steamboat dinner! (side note: it seems like i've hopped onto the annoying bandwagon of saying "vibes". soon i'll become a try-hard and start dabbing, ew)

There was too much food for 7 people.

T4 huat ah!
Ate a lot of food, talked a lot of cock, gambled and won $15! Looks like my Rooster luck isn't that terrible after all.

And a random photo to end off this post:
We've been blessed with lots of pink and purple sunsets recently (✿◠‿◠)

CNY 2017

❀ !!! 新年快乐!!! ❀


I am in holiday mood and procrastinating school work, hence this update. Heck, I'm even considering skipping 4226 tomorrow. Not sure if that would bring me bad luck though...

初一 
Entertaining my cousin with my phone and laptop as usual. She has always been amused by Snapchat, but this year she also pestered to use Microsoft OneNote and PowerPoint. Okay...?


Snapchat art made by my 9-year-old cousin.

初二
3 cousins brought their +1s this year. Meanwhile, this cousin brought his pet bird to 拜年, hahaha. This love bird flew into their house one day. It refused to fly out, they couldn't find its owner and it would probably die in the wild, so they kept it.

He named it Pika, after his favourite Pikachu.

初三
Went visiting at Esther's house today! Since it's the Year of the Rooster, we made the yusheng look like a rooster. Art Attack - Chinese New Year Special.

P.S. do your CNY shopping or risk looking out of place like me.
Had no new clothes or anything remotely festive, so I ended up looking like some weird cafe waitress?

Amazing spread cooked by Esther's mum and helper!

Hospitaleety
(because they are the Lee siblings, geddit geddit? ha. ha. ha.)

Ooh and we celebrated the CNY babies' birthdays today!

May you be blessed with lots of cocks this year.
