december part ii

two posts in a row? you didn’t see this coming did you

yep neither did i

okay anyway arrived in shanghai on the morning of 19th, dropped off majority of our luggage at home, and took the bullet train straight away to wenling where we settled into the uncle’s house and had our usual steamboat dinner (the wine was SO GOOD). also realised we had wifi there so that was great. most of our days were just spent having meals with the very huge extended family and getting stuffed by them because we are apparently too skinny ._. got to spend two nights with the cousin at the arcade (plus very long history lessons LOL) & we won so much stuff the first night! (ice cream and jelly and drinks and more haha)

guess how many tries my bro took to get this for me :D 


this thing is too damn cute.


we also went to pick pomelos and giant oranges and tried to fish but it was too cold to fish so no go

spent a night in shanghai before flying off to beijing where it was freezing omg we went from 12 degrees in wenling to 6 degrees in shanghai to -9 degrees in beijing (in celcius) aaaaand i basically froze over.

stayed at this hotel called redwall hotel right beside the palace museum and let me just warn you guys that if you ever stay there, do not sign up for tours/shows/performances introduced by the staff there because they will bloody rip you off for being foreigners. just rent a cab/car/minivan for the day so that you can go wherever you want and won’t have to stay in shops for 3 hours (it’s apparently stipulated as part of the tour) (the shops basically scam you of money with goods worth a tenth of their price). i quote the tour guide “oh you were charged so high? i’m so sorry, they must have mistaken you for foreigners” way to go buddy! so yea.

anyway beijing; the scenery at the great wall’s really gorgeous! so many singaporeans that day on there haha heard a mom going after her son “eh tie your shoelaces first!! loose already!!” but the son was like 10 steps ahead of her and long gone already heh. 

also went on the ice on the lake at the something something garden woohoo

imageapparently all my other pics are too large to be upload hmph. but this is still mega cool!!

helped translate directions to tourists i feel like such a nice person (which i’m not) (ahahahaha)

had a dinner with dad’s uni classmates who are working in beijing right now and it was fun hahaha they were recounting funny moments in school and arguing which canteen foods were better etc. and of all the three girls i kenna the worst qn sigh (are you attached) (like whut) (no) and i accidentally used dialect in front of them cos i forgot we were at beijing not shanghai oops. 

last dinner in beijing was in this place called quan ju de which is supposedly famous for its roast duck (i mean everyone’s heard of peking’s roast duck right) but it was mehhh haha i think our south-eastern china taste is quite different from northern china taste sigh.

and that dinner was also when it started going downhill like why can’t we just spend two weeks in peace. two weeks. in the restaurant. in the hotel lobby. in our rooms. on the flight back to shanghai. back at shanghai. it was like a continuous string of background noise that i tried very hard to dampen but failed spectacularly.

and you have the nerve to tell me on the phone that i was ‘adding oil to the fire’ like fuck you this was supposed to be your job. you were supposed to be the peacemaker and guess what, the peacemaker decided to turn into a third party so now i have to sort out this mess that you left behind, and you have the nerve to happily add to the mess while blaming me for it. are you fucking done.

why must the children bear the consequences of mistakes their parents/ grandparents made 22 years ago

twenty-fucking-two whoopeedeedoop

had very spicy korean rice cake + kimchi in shanghai at food republic under carrefour! also found a secret recipe outlet there where chocolate banana cake goes for 5sgd a slice so we got two :) the pizza/spaghetti place was good too like the food was decent and extremely cheap but i felt like slapping the waitress haha welp. last meal in shanghai was at the eatery across the street as per tradition again! 

imagelook what else we got HAHA

okay story. cos nook’s old toy (the exact one we got at the arcade at wenling) is too old and has retired, this one is gonna be replacing it so i had to get another one for myself right?? and we happened to walk past this roadside store while otw to dinner one night and saw this so i just bought it :> anyway the bigger size suits me better cos it’s the same size as my bolster HAHA. and meanwhile before i said goodbye to husky i’ll just have to take more selfies with it :))

imagebecause it’s TOO GORGEOUS

and also because i was photogenic for like five minutes yesterday so just let me have my fun okay

(i don’t even know why like i hadn’t bathed since beijing. that was like CHRISTMAS)

imageokay okay i’m done HAHA

imagesunrise on the way to pudong intl airport

managed to squeeze husky into my luggage cos the bro didn’t want to carry either one in public hahahaha

imagereally really relieved to be back

first meal back here was black carrot cake and chawanmushi hahaha it’s such a weird combination but it was good (i miss having airport food three days in a row)

counted and realised that i took a grand total of 14 flights last year (2013) haha #record

first night here was so uncomfortable urgh stop acting like a weakling you fucking troublemaker

guess i should grab some sleep now hmm kinda excited for dinner later with zyn and hc!! (guess who’s lightbulbing LOL moi) also excited for lunch tmr and all the outings the week after hAha i actually sound like i have a social life (iDonut)

it’s also time to start mugging for uni oh no (i will start next week!!) (promise!!)

december part i

it’s 0354 and i’ve been lying on my bed for the past two hours with no intentions of falling asleep whatever so

might as well update my blog right

can’t remember much of what happened in the first two weeks of december oops. it was pretty much concert clubbing go out go out go out walk dogs (not mine) (but damn cute) go out go out 

okay i’ll try to remember haha um.

so there was bandemonium on 6 dec and it was pretty good. it went well i guess. so glad i got to see my hornies :)

imagemy lovely rg juniors hehe

imageand my lovely (horny) section :)

headed to zouk after that to pass gladys her starbucks drink (from me with love!!) and for b’s bday party. well not exactly but it was a celebration party anyway (for some people’s bdays and post exams and wtv) and it was unexpectedly fun (cos the last clubbing experience did not go well) so it was a good night well spent :) only have one single photo from that night but i think it’d be unwise to upload it LOL. spent half the night drinking (or more accurately, getting tricked into drinking) and half the night outside talking and BAM i made new friends just like that. hooray for me breaking out of my reclusive lifestyle!

we ended at like 5 am and waited for cabs at the curb (while b and yc run back and forth to flag cabs down) and that was somehow the best part of the night (even with the others passing around cigs)

reached home at 6
sent out the regular i’m home texts
fell asleep for 13 hours

b was pretty confused when i said the night was fun hahahaha (he’s a sneaky mf)

can’t rmb when did cr and i started going out but there was udders and dinner at simpang (that was with b and dan) and n&n and those were pretty fun.

-oh hey look my skin’s all flaking off-

oooh met edwin on 13th (the friday!) and i can’t even rmb what we were meeting for but we had lunch at watami and finally satisfied my month-long watami craving! i think we shopped a bit for his wallet and my jeans but it was a completely failed shopping attempt ahahaha and he had to go off to meet his bro/arnold/mom/ican’trmbwho and i was meeting cheryl & deb so our day ended pretty quickly but it was still a very fun 2 short hours hahaha

continued shopping with cheryl and deb for xmas stuff haha i miss spending time with girls!! got ice-cream from cold stone cos ice-cream is the best thing that ever happened to mankind and we had one of our productive discussions about relationships and such (i am not relationship material lol). i need to realise that not everyone has to be read. and people need to stop interfering in other people’s relationships ffs (jesusfuckingchristmylord) (thankyoumonkey). had dinner from the taka basement and their food is awesome :) i confess to gossiping about things that i should not have gossiped about.

shopped at orchard for like 20mins on 17th cos i still hadn’t gotten scarves/beanies yet but anyway after i was done cr and i were just like now what hahaha so he got me the drink that i won :> and i nearly got abducted to p’s house (that’d have been so fucking weird). thank god he had more sense than that but then i left stitch on his car (what a dunderhead). so we ended up having supper at pioneer because bored=food.

short meetup with yihui on 18th for tea!! haven’t seen that girl since she flew off to notts for law but yay she’s back :) for now at least. updated each other about life in uk & sg respectively and it wasn’t very much nor was it very long but i’m glad we had that meetup :) just one more before she flies off till summer break sigh.

also acted as nuscp-spcp messenger for the day hahahaha

imageplease pardon my looking like shit, it tends to happen on a regular basis

it’s forever raining on days that i don’t bring my raincoat -.-

went back to pack my luggage and we got to the airport sooo early (that’s right i pack on the day of my flight hashtag yolo). dinner at hk cafe as per tradition and then i went off to meet cr and dan haha they eat like pigs omg. and the convo over the phone with j lolololol. they’re a funny bunch (‘:

flight got delayed by like 3 hours so my flight in the end was even later than cr’s =.= anyway more retarded moments outside my boarding gate with cr haha i’d probably have died of boredom without him around.


and that’s mostly it for the first two weeks of december ‘13 before i flew off to china for two weeks where all the shit and the good things happened (mostly still shit). that should merit another post on its own. also not sure if i’m able to upload so many peekchas into one post at once and i don’t really wanna risk it (^this took 1.5 hours).

damn i’m hungry i think macs’ opening in about an hour

happy new year sweethearts :)

When you are in love, you learn to love the things that you once never cared about because the person you love cares about them. This is why Christ told us that the greatest commandment was to love the Lord your God; when we love God we love others, we love the orphans and the widows. We love the world even when it hates us, we desire to see people healed and love restored.

You want to change the world? Then you need to start loving God in such a way that your entire world changes. That is the beauty of transformational love; it doesn’t just affect you, it affects all those around you.

I made an attempt at animation today because I’m sick and bored.


work has ended and i’m rejoicing woohoo :3 colleagues got me presents for farewell haha so nice of them! i think it’s a very girl thing to do, like to give presents for occasions.

been going back to rwinds pracs a few times haha i’ve really missed school and everything. horns was like the strongest section during recall lol we had like ten horns?? amazingly. didn’t play though cos i was quite late and there were so many horns already so i just stayed with zac they all haha kept going on about army stuff which were quite funny (kangaroo meat seriously) and went for supper with them also cos i haven’t had macs in damn long (matt kept saying that andrew is very pretty omg ahahahaha)

went out with j on sunday haha supposedly it was for shopping but we didn’t get any done ): basically walked through ion and cine but didn’t find anything ): that moment when he tried to scare me but peed himself omg. (not literally) but we got hokkaido ice cream and swensens ^_^ i don’t think there’s anyone else who has so little in common with me hahahaha why are we even friends…. he’s also a vain pot like he has so little hair but he somehow still manages to shape it into this small mohawk -.- (reminds me of my brother except that my brother wakes up with a natural mohawk it’s the funniest thing ever!) also probably the only guy who’s more scared of the cold than i am lololol 

visited saveur at far east yest with deb :) the duck confit was not bad haha potato au gratin was too creamy though. watched catching fire afterwards which was pretty awesome but extremely violent ._. my eyes were closed for like half of the time when they were in the arena haha it was so scary :x not sure if i don’t like gale the character or because he’s played by liam hemsworth. the costumes are gorgeous :O walked over to 313 for supper afterwards the xmas decorations along orchard are super pretty!! had lava cake icecream and spaghetti and it sounds a lot like a full meal but i swear it was super small portions!

i like to be alone around people. like with people i know. but not necessarily interacting them, just to be present with them. does that make sense

still not sure about friday night urgh whatever at least there’s bandemonium before that :)

nus can you just let me start applying already!!

3 Dec 2013


last night was awesome :> dragged myself out of the house at three for rwinds prac because i haven’t been there in a really long time and just sat around the percs area listening to them play haha i miss playing in band ): unfortunately i also suck at playing so :P quite disappointed that i wouldn’t be able to go for coda this year cos i’ll be overseas then ):

went for dinner afterwards at jaithai haha the food there is quite good! but i still think the one closer to my place is better. they were proposing all kinds of stuff for the concert and texting everyone else to approve of their proposals so that it would go through lolololol.

had cake at han’s after that! it was okay i guess i still miss the chocolate banana cake from secret recipe ): charades was damn fun omg 
(black widow spider)
-‘what do you call a woman whose husband has died?’
-irvin: ‘queen.’
-andrew: ‘flamingo!’
LOL seriously the most epic responses ever.

reached home past midnight oops and couldn’t sleep till two plus cos i was still high from supper hahaha

went out with yp on thursday also! cos haven’t seen/talked to him in a very long time either haha probably ever since school ended. casuarina prata has funny pratas haha the shape of the honey prata was damn cool! still prefer prata house though :> also got ice cream from udders afterwards i am still slightly obsessed with ice cream heh :>

last week of work starting tmr! (apparently andrew works upstairs haha so cool) can’t wait till it’s the weekends again ^^

i fucking love enders game

deb took like three quarters of the movie to realise that’s his name lawlz

this triple shot latte is making me sleepy w h y 

i think it’s pretty funny when people try to give me a hard time. also hilarious when people try to pull rank on me like ? ??? ? do i give a fuck ?? (no)

there was this staff on the phone with me who actually asked ‘are you someone senior’ and i said ‘no’ and she proceeded to raise her voice by twenty times to scold me for something that wasn’t related to me like HAHAHAHAHA WOMAN NO JUST HELL NO HAHAHA

what goes up must come down

(eminem is pretty dope)

(so are a select few songs of lawson)

wore jeans twice this week!! have not worn jeans in a very very long time haha but snagged this pair of mint jeans for fifteen bucks and it’s gorgeous!! need to go jeans shopping again though cuz i need a few more for winter :/ (shanghai is approaching zero degrees soon ggxx) (beijing has already gone into subzero ggxxggxxggxx) (idk what’s that other city is called but it’s not that far up north so it can’t be that bad… right?)

dinner at fav shanghainese restaurant on wednesday was nice :)) dad snapped a really pretty pic of the street we were on so i koped it and posted it on insta HAHA oops. i’m on insta too much ): 

visited jem on sunday! like finally. it’s like a condensed version of ion wisma and jurong point. also i’ve come to realise that topshop is only good for its nail polish like everything else is so overpriced ):

a lot of what jennifer lawrence says is very accurate i like her

'everyone keeps asking me if i feel this huge amount of pressure so now i'm starting to feel a huge amount of pressure that i should feel a huge amount of pressure'

facebook is getting on my nerves ‘harmless fun’ it’s not.

ran into yp outside starbucks the other day! and then i realised i’ve never really had a proper conversation with him haha oops. but yaye finally found someone in bishan whom i can have dinner with hehe :> 

haven’t talked to you for like more than a week i am not okay with this ):

'my thoughts are stars i can't fathom into constellations' (?)

'what should a story seek to emulate, augustus?'

'keep your shit together'

as you can probably tell i’m reading the fault in our stars while occasionally looking up to check on my social media every few pages so this entry is taking really long (actually it’s been three hours since i’d started on this post)

i feel like i need to start using my brain again like i haven’t done anything vaguely academic since sats and it’s kinda worrying me but at the same time idk where to get started (maybe i should just stroll into utown and call up s lololol)

i haven’t been sick in so long this feeling is kind of foreign yet familiar

time to go to bed to sleep it off

passed by a lot of places on the way back hmm i miss those places

had astons with gladys on tuesday and went to sb to meet her friend who turned out to be a senior from ri heh that was pretty cool. he also assumed i was her junior and that i was like 140cm (not cool dude not cool) but he was funny so it’s fine HAHA :>

dinner with hc at udders on friday wheeee birthday treats ^_^ durian puffs from the bakery were awesome too :> also checked my sat II results which apparently came out on the 24th (oops) and they were pretty good haha didn’t expect such good results (mainly bcos i didn’t exactly study for them) but yea it was a pleasant surprise :)

five more weeks at work and i’m done omg can’t wait for dec :> :>

i miss australia )): i forgot the name of the place in nsw that we went to that day for lunch URGH i just remember it was right across the qld-nsw border and it was the prettiest place i’d ever seen haha i’ll find it one day!!
