day 1931 – hop on hop off

signed up for the big big bus where we have the flexibility to hop on and off the bus whenever we come across any attractions we wanted to see. we hopped on three different routes to go around downtown, chinatown, little india and orchard road. from this bus tour, i saw so many superb architecture and design. these busses saved us a lot of walking and definitely saved my knee from collapsing

day 1930 – marina bay sands

couldn’t go to singapore and not visit the iconic hotel while doing touristy things. i call it the hotel with surfboard on the top. even though i didn’t manage to watch crazy rich asian before this trip, i know this is crucial checkpoint. the hotel was so nice both inside and outside; i was so amazed by the designs and architecture as i was walking through the common areas within the lobby. this is definitely one hotel i want to stay in next time i’m back

day 1630 – keepsake gemsĀ 

highschool best buddy sent over a surprise with pictures she found while cleaning up her house. i laughed when i saw my artona grad pictures. was highschool really that long ago and have i aged since then? what have i accomplished since and was it what i imagined life would be like? no. i graduated highschool expecting i’d have taken my architecture masters, that i’d be working in my dream job making big bucks, that i’d be living in a mansion i designed, that i’d meet someone who treats me as a destination. most of that is just a fantasy, but what’s real is i’m proud of where i am now and the adversity i had to face to get here

day 1147 – evening

this is where i was in the evening, doing my thing in the architectural building. today was a really strange day which no routine, no structure where i had no proper meal. the conflicting feeling when i felt like i did a lot of things and at the same time felt like i did nothing. i don’t like it this way, let’s go back to the structured life and restore a little order and discipline

day 1119 – demeanour

sometimes when you get comfortable seeing something you forget to appreciate the little things that surround you. taking things for granted happens; it happens with things, it happens with people. i guess i can’t be too bothered because a good day at the gym cancels it out and also makes up for my last subpar performance. i am happy i made new ground today and i know there’s more to come. once again, it reminds me pr’s are meant to be broken, limits are meant to be surpassed and goals are meant to be reached

day 597 – model moment

image

before anyone can even see what had happened, the few thousand dollar surrey civic plaza model tipped over the edge of the table top and came crashing down onto the ground. it’s now shattered into hundreds of pieces and if anyone thinks it can be glued back together to look like the original, they must be high on something. now that i’ve captured the chaos, i shall clean up this mess

day 421 – sala series

as school term wears on and everything goes into full swing, my busy life schedule and commitments are tearing me apart like no tomorrow. already feeling so stressed and so worn out from the busyness and even been feeling unwell all week but haven’t got the time to see the doctor. not that i would choose to go to a doctor unless i am dying in some form
