Being Upset Over Being Taken Advantage Of

Yesterday, I was ranting away to my brother, no less..haha, because I just don't understand how some people have the ability to use other people to be at their beck and call. I've had two such encounters and even though I tried to be flexible but people took it as an advantage. Sometimes I would think don't they try to put themselves in that person's shoes and see how much trouble they have caused. It doesn't mean I'm all nice about it you just keep taking one step further and further.

I run this online shop and while I try to be civil and also nice, I do have limitations. I think this is pretty normal if you're a human being. In the social media recently, there were encounters where restaurants were given really poor reviews based on how the customers were treated. But usually, it was one sided and the restaurant management would try to explain away and then things would get to a nasty start if the management claimed that they had been put in a different li…

Imagining My Life to be Different

Last Saturday, I was imagining a little on how different my life would be if certain things didn't happen to me, reciprocated on a potential love interest or making certain decisions. Many people believe that our life story has been pretty much been written in our fate and that we're just acting it out, whether we like it or not.

But that aside, I want to take a moment on imagining how I would be different. Perhaps, I would have gotten married if I had not built it early in me many many years ago that I do not want to be tied down to a marriage. Or perhaps, I wasn't so choosy in the guys who wanted to get to know me and that I shed all my inhibitions and just you know, 'go for it'. Then I sheepishly think oh, I probably will get married and have at least 3 children, haha.

I don't see anything wrong with being married, having kids and so on. It's just a natural transition to have your own family when you're an adult and earning income, whether working for …

A Trip Down to Light to Night Festival 2018 : Civic District

Image
Last week, my brother and I went to an outdoor event called the Light to Night Festival 2018 at the Civic District area. So it turned into a host of colours in various parts of the Civic District attracting crowds, both local and foreign. Nearby, there was a line up of stalls selling various food and trinkets and even though the entrance was quite muddy due to a slight rain and foot traffic. 
The National Gallery transformed into a kaleidoscope of colours and it was also an interactive event as visitors could stomp on these special platforms that would supposedly light up the colours. I liked watching the colours change on the building facade but I liked it more when you could see the light in different depth creating 3D effects which I didn't see in these light exhibitions. But I guess the emphasis was more on colours so I can't complain much, haha.
Further down, there were several other buildings as well and they too transformed into these colourful blocks such as the Old Parl…

Being Upset Over A Picture

Image
Sometimes I feel that we get carried away emotionally because of what people say to us or how we see ourselves and then we get disappointed as though we feel like we have failed ourselves. But truth is, we only have one heart and one body. People can also say ANYTHING they want because some are just so salty AF or some think they are giving us the best advice, but ultimately it is up to us to decide what we should follow and what we should not.
A couple of weeks ago, I met up with my ex classmates and I actually felt really good like because the clothes fit me well and I thought that even if the scale said otherwise, physically I feel fine. Until I see the picture the restaurant took of us and then I felt completely down as though I let myself down. 
You know from my previous posts that I wrote about me trying out different forms of fitness workouts and having fun while at it, though sometimes I feel like dying as well when it got pretty tough. Bottom line is, I do it to be fit and heal…

Am I Worthy to Be Noticed?

Recently a guy I used to admire at the gym, who is sorta like a combination of geek + muscles, made a reappearance after a long while early this year. I was really surprised when I saw him because it had been a few months? I don't know..I don't really keep track but it seemed pretty long to me. When I turned my head and saw him in his familiar tall and slightly hunched walk, I was like..'he's back!!!!' in my heart of course, can't say it out loud explicitly.

I guess he noticed me as well. I mean I could be a familiar face since I go there every Sunday for years, though the timing started getting later and later. But oh well, at least I still go, haha. Seriously, he still looks that good, without missing a beat, and if I were to skip gym few months, I shudder at the thought. It's not that I am fit right now but let's say, I would be worse off than I am right now.

But this time he didn't seem to have his 'kakis' or people who know him because he…

Learning to Adapt to Major Changes in Life

I recently heard a piece of unexpected news and we went ballistic! I couldn't share here..yet..but all I can say is that people change. Things happen and then you question yourself about life and how you want to live it especially when it concerns about your future. At one point, you may have strong opinions about something and then you start to re-think about the whole situation and figure out, yes perhaps this is what I want and I'm ready to embrace it.
Of course, stepping into a whole new territory is a different story. Nobody knows what the future has in store for us. At one point, we are leading the perfect life and then the next moment, we are fighting a crisis. I've written about this before because this is how life goes. I can't always expect things to remain the same all the time, for this year and the upcoming years. Naturally, if we're so much into the routine, it takes awhile to adjust. New or broken relationships, job postings, different set of work or …

End of First Week of the Year, Hurtful Comments & Having A Family

So we have officially gone into the first week of the new year, yay! I hope it's been alright for you. I didn't do much on New Year's Day itself but I did earn $40 from a customer which of course, I was so happy about because it was my first earnings. It sorta kickstarted my humble online business on the right foot. Also, even though initially I didn't get any orders yet for the year but slowly it trickled in and then I am going to be busy again, in a good way. 

While we are rejoicing in what the year has in store for us, unfortunately, not all have a pleasant kickstart into the new year. A family of four passed away this early week from a horrific accident which occurred in Malaysia when a truck hit their car when it was stationary when the truck driver lost control of its vehicle coming down the slope. The couple left behind two other older children and I can't imagine the anguish they have to go through losing their family members. May God bless their souls and g…
