Reflections

Before 2014 ends, I thought I will do a reflection of what I have realised and encounter for the past 1 year.

Personality

"NO ONE IS PERFECT"


I am not the best girl with a lovable personality nor am I exactly polite. I am rather straightforward, gullible and hot tempered. I speak fast and sometimes in a harsh tone even if I don't mean it. Been chided for my tone and it's something that I hope to change for the better in the year 2015.

Friends

To be honest, I am not really a people person. I make friends easily but then I do not really know how to maintain one. I may seem as really easygoing and looks like I have a lot of friends and has a lot of meetups but to be honest, I am not someone who really takes the initiative to organise meetups or stay in contact as I fear that I may seem annoying to them, It is also partially because of an incident that happened a few years ago. However, I am glad that I have my annoying bunch who is able to accept me for what I am and I enjoy their company whereby I can be who I am. There is always laughter whenever I am with them.

This year, I also found out which are the friends who I can really keep and trust and are really close to me and who are the ones friends that I have drifted apart with. I have also found out who are the ones who just know how to say 表面话 but in the end disappear. It kind of shock me with the excuses they can give. However, it does not means that I will not be friends with them as many of them are not bad. I just know who are the friends that deserve to be on my priority list.

Work

Giving tuition has always been the main source of my income and it has been 2 years since I last asked my parents for allowance. Yes, giving tuition pays well but it also take away much of my freedom as they are mostly in the afternoon or at night during the weekdays. Giving tuition is not as easy as it seems to be and it actually gives me an idea of how tough the teacher's job is. It is stress to keep up to the expectation of the parents but at the same time I need to maintain a certain rapport with my tutees. Many times I have to forgo the time whereby i can spend with my friends to teach tuition. It can be difficult to juggle between tuition and school, especially during the exam period as my exam period coincides with their and I cannot possibly leave them alone. I really admire and salute those people who are able to juggle between work and studies. Despite all the cons, I enjoy the responsibility I am given and I have a sense of satisfaction when I see an improvement in their grades. 

Blog

Although I am not a famous blogger, I am thankful for the chances samplestore gave me to work with some big brands. Although I did not get paid to do the advertorial but I happy to try out new products and giving my honest reviews about them. I also get to know some bloggers through the Tirisula Yoga event and they are all very nice and easygoing. Really really thankful for all the opportunities I am given. :)

Love


No mushy words here but I am ever thankful to my boyfriend Z who has tolerated all of my nonsense, willfulness and staying by me through my ups and downs the past 3 going to 4 years. It has been a tough 1 year with many quarrels, one of which nearly break us apart. Going through the NS phase wasn't easy and I am glad we managed to stay together till you ORD and staying strong. We often take each other actions for granted and many of our sparks in the relationship have disappeared. Hence, in the upcoming 2015, let's add some new sparks in our relationship and I hope I will be able to change for the better. 

I hope 2015 will be a better year for me and for everyone else. :)

45TH

It was Z and I 45th monthsary on 22nd Oct and we decuded to go out for a walk. We don't exactly celebrate our monthsaries now and usually just spend our time idling around at his house during the weekends.

It was raining everyday that week for i don't know what reason but we planned to visit the Singapore Botanic Gardens on that day for a walk/picnic since we both have never been there before. However, the pig Z was feeling tired in the morning as he was drained out from Navy so we postponed the trip to the afternoon and who knows it started raining. :( Plan was kind of cancelled and Z didn't have a backup plan. :@ Decided to settle our lunch at Jurong Point first since i am feeling super hungry at that point of time and Z wanted to go home to change.

Luckily for us, the rain stopped after that and he decided to continue the plan. It was like 3+pm when we were waiting for the train at the station. Finally we reached at around 4pm and then our tour begin! :)


Amazed at how my Samsung Note 3 is able to capture a good macro shot.

Z who look like a monk that day. Hehe

Ootd


Ducks! A pity we did not bring any food along so i am not able to feed them. T.T


Black swans?



Paid $1 each for the entance fee to Orchid Garden as we are still students. I like the perks of being a student!  ^^




Was only halfway or 3/4 through the Singapore Botanic Garden when we realised that the sun is setting. Didn't expect to spend so much time exploring and walking around Singapore Botanic Garden. Hurried to walk to the other end and have dinner at Food For Thought. Couldn't take any pictures anymore as the lighting is very poor

Passed by a small man made waterfall while walking.

We were rather famished and tired from walking for half a day and quickly ordered our food.

Crispy Curry XL Chicken & Kaffir Lime Chilli Butter Fries ($20)

Steak and Sambal Potatoes with Sunny Side Up Eggs ($29)





Overall, I think that Food For Thought has a rather nice concept with an open kitchen (which I forgot to snap a pic of) and the food portion is rather huge which makes up for the a little expensive price.

Finished dinner at around 8+pm and it was totally dark in Botanic Garden with a few place that were light up and we had to walk back to the other exit to take the train. It's like a courage trail because some places are really dark. :( And being the scaredy cat, I was scared and hooked to Z almost the whole time and we walked in roundabout for the first time before finding our way out. What a way to end the day. Hahahaha. Despite this I am looking forward to our next adventure, Hehehe.
