GOODBYE, 2013

Hello! It's me (and my wordy blogpost) again!

I was just fantasising about Something That Is Never Gonna Happen. Of course, I don't expect you to give one percent of a hoot, so I shan't bore you. You're welcome. :)

Don't really have a reason for blogging, but I feel very happy today. I don't know how long it's going to last so I should really pen my thoughts now :D

I'm feel so happy today, and if it lasts till tomorrow, I feel like I'll be greeting everyone in the life tomorrow with ultra-enthusiastic HI's. People will be wondering what came over me because I'm positioning myself as The Stoic One. HAHA. That is the best defence mechanism I can think of now lol.

While Fantasising About The Impossible, I also made myself list down some realistic things to hope for (BTW, "Hope For" and "Work On" are different. My "work on" list... still workin' on it. Haha.)

Come 2014, I really hope to meet people who like me for me. I don't want to have to pretend to be somebody else just to please people, or shut people up. I won't ask for everything to be perfect, but I hope to meet more nice people, and less obnoxious ones. I hope to be able to trust people more. I hope to have a reason to trust. I hope to make as little mistakes a possible, because heaven knows, I can't stand making mistakes, but I STILL DO (DARN, DARN, DARN).

I wish for less uncertainties. And okay lah, I also promise to work on being more flexible. Haha.

I hope to find my place in the world. Honestly, I think I may have found it, but it's early days yet, so maybe it's too soon to say. But I really think it's about time. Because you see, I usually have to fail/face setbacks a couple of times to get a perfect fit for anything. And I really think, this time, I was hit with more then usual.

Well that's all! I hit the worst patch in my lifetime ever (so far) this year, but I know, I know my luck is a-changing this 2014! And I'll never be complacent again gahhhh. Dear Rough Patch, thank you for visiting me. HAHA you didn't ruin me. Even though for a while, I thought you did. Instead, you made me a better, stronger person, and it's really too bad if you are disappointed. Hehe. :)

Merry (Belated) Christmas!


And here's a photo of me trying to make a fashion statement with comfy hotel slippers. I had so much fun on Christmas Eve! Well, in our opinion, it was fun. Anything is fun with good company. Except clubbing lol lol because I am boring like that. Haha. Eating, gossiping, and (that goes without saying) taking photos! 

I have a feeling, somewhere down the road, people are going to ridicule my friends and I for the hundred and one photos (and selfies). But hey, photos are like time capsules, and there's nothing wrong with retaining memories! :D 

Imagine looking at this photo at the ripe old age of 80:



I mean, look at photos like this. That two
Bimbos behind. TSK HAHAHA. And btw I just got feedback that makeup or not, I look the same. Which is why I'm contemplating going sans makeup and getting 25 more minutes of sleep everyday! :D





And this. I laughed for an entire minute when I received it. 


Of course, mascots are not spared from Selfie Season.


Here's the view from one of the windows. There was a fit guy getting out of the pool and wrapping a towel around himself before this haha. Sorry girls, scenery before eye candy, because it's not everyday I get to go on a staycation! Then again, it's not everyday I get to see hotties HAHA. What was I thinking? Oh right I like the geeky, sunshine boy type. Hahahah. 


And another window.


The bathroom's really posh, but we were too busy to get good 360degree photos/videos haha. LOOK THERE'S A BATHTUB! Oh, and mirrors everywhere. 



I was going to take a photo with the caption "HELLO GOOD MORNING JUST WOKE UP" when nobody was around and then my friend came out of the bathroom and caught me trying to find my best angle. Oops. 


Oh yeah the beds are sooooo comfy! I felt like staying there all day lol. We all squealed when I (gotta take credit for this) discovered the brilliant view behind the green stripes! 



They even have a duckie for the bathtub haha. And it makes squeaking noises, they tried. HAHAHA. 



I look like this in the morning lol lol check out my big-small eyes!


I used to feel like bawling my eyes out when I couldn't decide on what to wear. When my makeup was slightly out of place, I felt like it was the end of the world. That was like a different lifetime! Now that that chapter is closed, I am sorry that I am bombarding you with #nomakeup photos. HAHAA NAH ACTUALLY I'M NOT SORRY. I KNOW I look alright. 

Most of my photos are in my camera, but I don't know if I'll be uploading them (you might have realised that I almost never upload photos of my friends)! 

I'm actually in bed, blogging from my phone. I'd better go before I fall asleep and drop my phone on my face haha okay bye! :D

And here's a 1am snap of my face!




And since you've been so nice to read till the end, let me tell you a little secret. I took these photos to make sure that I didn't get crossed-eyed from typing without my glasses. 

And you know what? I just realised that I need to get out of bed to switch the lights off. RAWRRRRRRR.

Goodnight! Or morning, to be exact. Hope your Saturday was great, and Sunday, terrific! :) 

Oh I forgot to tell you. The Singapore Flyer is lovely at night. 

And here's our supper. The only thing we could find at midnight and my oh my it was delishhhhhhh.


Goodnight for real! :)

Oh one more thing. I'd love to use this as my Facebook profile picture. But since age is catching up with me... I think the first one would be a better choice? What do you think?

Do you have quirks when it comes to food?

I do. And I never thought much of them until recently when I started going for lunch with new people! And it's embarrassing.

I like to order:
Prawn Mee without prawns (UNCLE/AUNTIE! HAY MEE MAI HAY!!)
Cockles Fried Kway Teow without cockles
Chendol without Red Beans

There are other weirder ones, but I can't (and won't, hahaha) think about them right now.
But then again, it's not like I'm ordering something like, Peanut Butter without peanuts. Actually, that DOES sound quite alright. HEH.

Sometimes, other customers in the queue will burst out in (polite) laughter and repeat my order HAHA.

Okay that's all bye!

You know what I wish for?

I love holidays and staycations, but packing and lugging my stuff around? Not so much. I know, I know. Greedy much? Haha :P

My friends and I managed to get a room at a posh hotel this Christmas Eve! Ever the kiasu one, imagine my yaya-papayaness when I managed to pack everyone into a small-ish gym bag! It's just for a night but man, I wish I could pack my entire home into my bag like Mary Poppins or Hermoine and bring it along with me!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS, EVERYONE! :)
And can somebody please stop me from worrying so much? I keep thinking of worst-case scenarios. It is no fun being a worrywart but I can't help it GAHHHHHHH. You want to know what I'm worried about now? I'm worried that I can't figure out which belt looks best on me by tomorrow. A little part of me also worries that I'll get some foot wart from the previous occupant. HAHA. I know. You will have a very.... interesting life if you're my friend. I think I have the best imagination in the world. Sometimes I can just SEE my friends trying their best to maintain straight faces while I go on and on and on about my Very Traumatic Fears. Hahaha.

But it's not easy being my friend because almost all my friends went through the 'Why doesn't that girl talk?" phase HAHAHA. I do talk but like I told you, I'm a very paranoid person and I've built up exceedingly strong defence mechanisms. So if you're my friend then you should know that you are a good person, because you know, I'm almost never wrong. And I'm sorry that things were awkward at first, and I'm also sorry that I don't shut up now. Actually, not really. HAHAHA.

Okay that's enough blabbering for today.

Again, thank you for everything that has gone well today. I won't wish for more good things to happen to me, but I hope things stay somewhat the same for a looooooong time! :)

I wish for a smooth and full career path, my parents to be healthy, my friends to be happily married with cute babies I can terrorize HAHA. And these are the realistic ones. Of course there are many other things I wish for, like NO ILLNESSES, NO VICE, NO STARVING HUMANS, but unless I am Queen of The Galaxy, it's kinda difficult.

Do something nice this Christmas (even though you should try to do it every day) okay?

HA who am I kidding. Nobody reads past two paragraphs anymore Lazybonessss!

OMG I am so boring hahaha

No photos and no particular theme whatsoever so my posts hahaha but it's not offensive in anyway, and I'M THE ONE READING IT so....

No photos too but that might change because YAY I've finally straightened my hair! At a promotional rate, and there is almost nothing better than saving some $$$, so... DOUBLE YAY!!

I was out shopping with a friend on Friday, and we were both surprised at how decisive I was. I guess is really different when you ask yourself questions like "Do I like this?" as opposed to "What would XXX say about this? What would XXX think about this?" So that chapter has closed. Shopping is not a excruciatingly stressful activity anymore. TRIPLE YAY!

Oh, last week I was on a boat. And you can see my hair too.

 



In case the view is distracting (which I totally understand - I mean, who I am to compete with THIS?)



Here's a plain, plain, shot of my face.


 
And... I won a digital camera!! It is so phenomenally pretty!! Hello Kitty + Pink = I Love.

 
I won a watch too =P


Oh, and last week, I dreamt that about Chord Overstreet and he was dancing topless. Which was kinda funny because I am not obsessed with him like I'm obsessed with... oh wait yeah I don't get obsessed with celebrities.
 
What I mean is I've never really fancied Chord Overstreet, with his six packs and all (I prefer the nerdy/geeky boy-next-door type, so I have no idea why he even entered my dreamland.  BUT. I DREAMT THAT I MET A WESTLIFE MEMBER!! I can't remember which one though! But I love them all because they bring back great childhood memories HAHAHA. Well tweenhood, perhaps.

Okay that's all! I just ended my Westlife YouTube Video spree and I'm going to sleep now! I'm a little afraid of going to sleep because I'm afraid that I'll wake up and find out that everything that's happened to me this month was just a dream. Or the usual case of The Jinx when something bad happens when I allow myself to be too happy. Oh well I had a good three weeks (except the times I overanalysed and mini-panicked over gestures of kindness). I actually think if I were to die tomorrow (touch wood, of course), I'll feel at peace and die a content soul. Thank you for my happy three weeks (so far), and please let this be an ongoing thing :D

A new chapter of my life starts tomorrow

Hello.

It's the first day of my new job tomorrow, and I feel so... I don't even know how I feel. I hope I'm not alone, and having The First Day Jitters is the norm. Like, what if people hate me at first sight? It's not like I look sweet, cute, or approachable and I definitely don't have a smile that would make people instantly go OOOOOOH SHE'S A GOOD PERSON. What if nobody talks to me, or if people talk to me and I make a bad first impression, so bad that nobody talks to me again, ever?

How long will I take to settle in? What if I'm not as good as they thought/I hope to be? I know I'll take some time to settle in and I probably won't be like, The Employee of the Week on my first day, or even month, but I am dreading the transition period so.

This isn't even my first job, but I haven't had a First Job in 4 years. I've had two other holiday jobs in offices, so I don't suppose they count.

Today, I bought a Hunger Games Trilogy (and I'm feeling so I-can't-even-describe-it-now, I typed The Hungry Games hahaha) Box Set and when I unwrapped it, I realised that one of the books was damaged. Why. On the first day of December? ENOUGH ALREADY.

But then again, just like how "people only remember the bad things', good things have happened to me too. I won a some Kiehl's travel sized products, a Tarte Cosmetics Kit, and a pink Hello Kitty Digital Camera this week! And the second two were by luck. I hope these Good Luck signs outweigh that bad one!

Also, I hope people don't think I'm cold and unfriendly! These days, I'm not exactly shy, but my face and mouth structure gives off fierce vibes and I promise that is such a far cry from my personality! Sometimes I turn my webcam on when I'm doing my work and GOSH I SCARE MYSELF. I can't quite put a finger on what's wrong with my face. I mean, it's not like I can smile all the time - that would be weird.

You know, I think I realise why I caught the stomach flu and then missed my exams. Or I'm making up reasons for it. Both ways, I benefit, and maybe the extra year I "incurred" would serve as a reminder throughout the year for me. You know what? I'll insist now that this is a lesson. Must as well make the most of it.

 I wish I'm as funny, witty and likeable as Ellen DeGeneres ahhhhh. I have and will do my best, and I guess a little luck won't hurt! And of course I won't be one of those people who get branded as 'pretentious' because they try too hard.

Okay bye, I'm going to practise my smile in the mirror. It's so unfair! Some mean people have very nice natural smiles! And my teeth are so small that I look strained when I smile alshdlHKJHSDWUUW.

But then again, the security guards and receptionists seemed friendly enough, and people aren't usually friendly to unapproachable looking people, right?
