day 1008 – birthday girl

image

it’s my birthday today and there was no shortage of notifications. thankful to have so many people in my life who blew up my phone with messages, posts and all sorts of notifications. my parents taking me out to a dinner on my special day. heard many good things about fable kitchen and naturally wanted to try it for myself. it’s a relatively small restaurant and their portions are also very small. one of the rare times i was able to finish my own order, which means a normal person wouldn’t feel satiated. it all works in my favour because that leaves enough room for my birthday cake

monday night is date night

quality bonding time after being apart three years and only maintained through long distance messaging. fooling around at mcdonalds and our ability to be ourselves everywhere anywhere. time really does fly and before we know it, our friendship has been over a decade long and only continues to grow. you know our friendship is strong when our friendship remains so close even though we are separated by many seas and mountains. and no matter what situation arises, we will always know that the other will be right there when we need them most. looking to the day we can be reunited and not thirteen time zones apart

day 642 – day of birth

image

today the calendar says that i turn another year older, but i don’t feel much different and certainly don’t feel much wiser. celebrating my special day with the family, the people that will put up with me and will always be there for me no matter what happens. time sure flies by quicker as i get older, but i don’t want to grow up just yet because there’s too much waiting for me to explore. i am truly blessed to have every one of you supporters out there being patient with me and not giving up on me. i can only promise i will make my very best effort to work towards my goals to be a better me. it would have been a more enjoyable celebration if i wasn’t sick on the day of my birth

twenties series: [twelve] childhoodness

the transition of growing up from stage to stage is not an easy one. being a kid was easy but we wouldn’t even realize it at that time. during the first decade, there’s no need to stress, no need to worry and every day passed by like it was the best day of our lives. went to school, played with friends, had some extracurricular activities and went home happy and carefree. stepping into the second decade was a tougher because we realize there are added responsibilities and the acknowledgement of what stress is. school gets busier, homework increases, extracurricular activities piles on, not to mention drama will occur, relationships becomes unclear and the need to start thinking about career path. entering the third decade of the life, formally known as adulthood, is the toughest yet. school gets tougher, every exam and paper is like a do or die situation, extracurricular activities continues, love life has its ups and downs, and you feel like your career is trapped in fog and there’s no turning back. there are those moments when nothing is going right, everything happens out of the unexpected and everyone seems to be against you and you think long and hard and question whether you made the right decisions five years ago. i now understand why people will occasionally go in the quarter life crisis. i don’t know what is in store for me the rest of this decade and the next ones to come, but i am set to make take the positives out of situations and make it the best possible experience

day 435 – where we at??

throwback to hamber days with the locker gang. lived through the many highs and lows of highschool with this awesome group. it’s a pity we have all dispersed into different areas of the globe but all the good times will not be forgotten. its a test because true friends will always feel like we are together even when far apart. wonder where everyone is at right now

day 433 – cartoon cake

image

i was cake shopping around in t&t and for a second, i was tempted to get this for my mom’s birthday. that would have been a huge surprise to everyone, and would have been really interesting to see her reaction. unfortunately that won’t happen since i stuck with a the traditional asian style cake of strawberry mousse. i didn’t think she would be too fond of this having this cake anyways

day 278 – fish eye

was feeling rather bored and started playing around with my phone camera and exploring its many unexplored capabilities. came across many functions and applications that i didn’t even know i had. found this fish eye lens particular cute so here’s a picture i took of my already very cute stuffy, made even cuter
