day 1552 – raising

first day of august which is also the day my new salary kicks in. i worked my butt off for this day and i will continue to work even harder to make my case. my manager said that he intends to take me as high as i would like. i’m in it for the ride and still on have my eyes on the target working towards that unit of mine. there’s a reason why i’m constantly working; because i know what i want. it’s about wanting to build my own empire from the ground up

day 1435 – toilette 

i was fine with the rags i had, but my mom gave my fresh towels instead. the frayed edges and faded colours gave it character and added sentimental value. i would rather save money for other things like pay off my large bills and ever growing expenses. saving has become harder; need to work harder at it and make sure i keep that going. i still want to catch a down payment sometime sooner rather than later

day 1276 – lunar new year

my mom prepared way too much food for the lunar chinese new year hotpot. it was a good dinner to close off the year and i’m looking to continue my workaholic ways in the year of the rooster; this is the time work extra hard. i’m stuffed but we did not even clear half the amount of food on this table, so i expect to have another hotpot this weekend. i don’t like the feeling of feeling bad for having eaten

day 1252 – crunch time

new mug for crunch time to start a highly anticipated year. it’s the time to get back with my plans and grind even harder than before. back to work and upping my game so i can work harder, train smarter, eat better, stay healthier and get adequate sleep. it was a rough night of sleep last night; it’ll take some time to adjust my body clock to 6am mornings again. the night was eased with a good dinner out for papa ng’s birthday dinner

building 2017

2016 was one heck of a crazy roller coaster ride. the past twelve months gave me ample opportunities to experience more of what life is about. i found myself in the darkest moments where i shut myself off from the world, fluctations and eating problems ensued. i managed to dig deep with the support of my close ones, and got myself back together. nothing came easy as nothing worth achieving ever comes easy. behind closed doors, i fought many battles that no one knew about, but the most important thing is i never gave up on myself. i came to realization that i don’t want to remain stagnant and don’t want to remain the same so i took on some challenges. i defined what my goals were and was proactive in taking the necessary steps to get myself there. through the hard times i gained a lot of knowledge and strength that no doubt made a better me. it made me realize i’m much stronger than i think i am and need to get even stronger to withstand. i’m much closer to where i want to be but i’m not where i want to be yet. i’m still working on becoming the best version of myself

finished 2016 on a high note and looking to build a strong 2017 with bigger and more ambitious goals. it’s time to take it up a notch or even two and fulfill whatever my heart desires

  • stay as healthy and as injury-free as possible
  • train smarter and eat properly with sufficient sleep
  • be more disciplined and focused towards my goals
  • continue to work on my confidence level
  • love myself for who i am
  • communicate more with family and friends
  • explore the world and expand my horizon
  • attain supplementary diploma
  • appreciate being a workaholic, but also appreciate the little things
  • save up for the number game
  • revisit photography
  • do more of what sets my heart on fire

i’m pumped to make the next twelve months the best months i’ve ever had. find my strong. it’s now or never

day 1227 – what snow

so it’s snowing outside but not even snow stops me from this part of my day. my lifts are getting better but not progressing to where i had hoped. i need to work a little harder on them but my back is giving me lots of trouble i don’t know where it’s misaligned, locked, tight or strained. in the meantime i also need fix my eating that has gotten really poor with days where i wouldn’t have an appetite

day 1219 – gaming laptop

image
picked up my new toy from msi and i’m bringing it home to my dad who’s my personal technician. i’m no gamer, but bought another gaming laptop because i need the graphic cards capabilities. i argue this is a necessity for what i do and what i study. i vouch to work extra hard at school and for work purpose to prove that i do indeed need a new laptop and it’s crazy rendering speeds
