Korean Fashion Fever at Zalora!

Korean Fever has been here for some time, so we have our Korean dramas, Korean bands, Korean makeup, and of course... Korean fashion!

Introducing Headline Seoul Singapore (HLS): a Korean Brand that's on Zalora's virtual shelves, right here for you to shop in the comforts of home! Always updated with the latest K-styles, you can be sure that you can a whole range of trendy, versatile apparel for any occasion! From casual, cute, to layered looks, getting fashion inspiration from this popular culture has never been simpler! 

What's more, as Zalora is so famously known for, you get to enjoy sale prices – up to 39% off!

Here are some styles that caught my eye:

Marine Rope Crop Top 
Effortlessly chic and casual, rock this look at a fun-filled weekend. Made from polyblend, this soft and breezy material will ensure the best comfort in this city's sweltering heat! I think it's pretty cute, especially when paired with the geek glasses!





Step Fur Pullover
And since it's the end of the year and we have been offered just a little respite from the usually unforgiving heat, why not get into the winter spirit and get a cute pullover? This fur-like bodice gives additional comfort - but maybe... still wear it in air-conditioned rooms :) They come in white, pink, and black, so, choose away and get set for a mini Winter Wonderland experience!



Isn't It Dress 
And for days (like Monday, for example - argh, Monday Blues! ) where you simply don't know what to wear or have no time to mix and match... just throw on a dress! This comes in white and pale pink. With a gold pocket and sleeve design, this is a perfect balance of casual and glam. Let your "too lazy to dress up" mood be a secret! :)

Optimism vs. Realism.

Its one thing to be optimistic and hope (and work) for the best, but whether it's realistic or not... Hmmm.  Oh uncertainities and disappointments, why do you exist?

Sunday, October 25, 2015

I remember this morbid post

Where I told people not to scream at me or try to wake me up if I happened to get into a coma. I'd just let go. Because as much as I have no suicidal urges, I never thought I had anything important to live for. I mean, what's life? You study, work, hang out with friends, work (at that point, I didn't know what my dream job was)... and then what. Die?

Life was empty, like I was just passing through the motions. I had no idea why I was alive, and I always asked God why I was born. Of course I had no answer. Haha.

But I wonder if there's a reason for my existence. There's got to be, right? Like I said in 10000 of my blog posts... I hate uncertainties, and I hate waiting. 

I haven't abandoned this blog

Dear blog,

I wished I cataloged more of my here, the happy moments, like how I've done since I was fifteen. New people reading my blog will think I'm some emo-nemo angry girl. Then again maybe I shouldn't wish because FML my wishes always come true, even those I make rashly, on impulse (except the one about winning lottery and being the prettiest girl in the world. HAHA).

My blog may not be a living thing, but this song sums up what it has done for me. So thank you. 



Also, I need to make better wishes. Is it the way I phrased them? Was I not explicit enough? Next time I make a wish, I'd better state 100000 clauses.

My life has always worked this way: Whatever I need comes to me when I need it. New job? Sure. I need a new friend to bring me out of something? Sure (but of course, some have to leave when their role is done) . I need a mentor who sees my potential? Yeah. My makeup finished? Sure - Tomorrow's email: CONGRATULATIONS, YOU HAVE WON......

Of course, I had to work for them. They don't just appear magically. It's always the waiting and uncertainty that kills me. In everything. In waiting for my university grades, in the timing between my grades and my new job. Many things. Now that I look back on it, sure, everything always worked out in the end (albeit the pain and and on-the-verge-of-tears hopelessness). Why is my life always about trying, trying, trying and not knowing the end-result? Then again, I think that's how everybody's life is. Haha.

ZZZZZZ. Can I have crystal ball, please?

Oh well, whatever. Of course everything will be fine again. Then I will forget it all and move on to the next problem/hurdle in life. And then I can die. And maybe reincarnate and go through the process again. -.-

Man, why do the words "wait" and  "patient" exist? 

I wished a wish

Some time ago, I wished a wish that I would never be caught dead making public. I didn't think much about it because you know, I think the probability of me winning $10 million lottery Jackpot is definitely more likely. It was more like a series of wishes over a period of time. That was a series of wishes out my control - it's the kind so awesomely ridiculous that you'll never expect to come true. From tiny, mundane things to things you read on the Internet and think, "oh I wish that happened to me!"   

It was also the kind of wish that I always kinda wanted to wish, but never let myself wish, but wished anyway - and now I wish I didn't make that wish. Or did I even allow myself to make that wish in the end? If you get the point. Don't think you will :P

It's super scary the way things are unfolding. I kind of think I'm dreaming? Maybe I'm in a coma now and having a super long and realistic dream?

Or f this. Maybe someone is out to get me. But I haven't been pouring my heart out to the good ol' Internet for ages. Nobody should know my thoughts.

Freaking ridiculous is what this is.

OH GAWD GOOSEBUMPS.

Or maybe that mind-reading dude from Heroes exists. And I have something the CIA needs. But he can pick Bill Gates brain lah. Read my insignificant and boring mind for what?

Ok I must be thinking too much. When something is too good to be true, it must be fake. 10 years of agony must be making me delusional. Even it does seem like some magical, powerful force.

Oh darn this I think I really am delusional. But aiyah whatever. 好的不会轮到我的啦. No need to think so much.

Tata!

MAYBE I AM A SUCKER WHO JUST GOT PLAYED. Wah u all gonna die if this is the case. Whoever you all are. Not falling into stupid trap.

No I'm pretty sure I haven't even WRITTEN AND BURNT some of those thoughts. Shit. Am I stuck in some parallel dimension.

Whole world will be laughing at me soon
Sigh. Quick playing games with my mind bye bye-bye. Hey BSB and Nsync should collab!

It's kind of a scary phenomenon and nobody will understand. Heck, I don't even understand it myself, and I'm not sure I want to.

Omg I cannot

I cannot go down THAT path again. Please. I can feel creeping up on me. AVERT AVERT AVERT! Of course it ain't gonna happen. I am happy and never negative! Heaven forbid I ever feel even a twinge of negativity, because that's when everything goes downhill, and people start to dislike me.

I can't

I can't have so many people wanting advice from me about their problems when I can't even handle my own.

I keep trying, but nothing comes out

I have this project now that I really want to be mine. Mine as in, with as little help from my editor as possible. I want to take selfies with the posters that tens of thousands of people who walk by every day. Like OH HEY I DID THAT.

On any other day, I would able to do it. I'm sure. It's not easy but not difficult, either.

I want to but I can't. That doesn't even make sense, because how can anyone be unable to write one measley sentence?

OF COURSE I KNOW I NEED A BREAK. BUT I ALSO WANT THE PUBLIC TO SEE MY WORK. LIKE IN THE MALL. RIGHT IN THE CITY CENTRE.

Why is this happening to me now?

Tuesday, August 4, 2015

Please fast-forward my life by two days.

There was this one time (the only time in my life) I got very slightly tipsy (and that was really due to the lack of carbs, stupid me) and I remember being on the train, intending to grab the handrails but kept grabbing the air until my friend physically put one of the handles into my hand. And it took quite a bit of effort to ask for the bill.

It's happening now.

Not because of drinks.

My brain is working no more.

My stomach is working no more.

Maybe it does because all I want to do is puke.

I can't focus on my work. Or my life, actually. It's like past one or two weeks has passed in a blur.

I have projects to finish. And more than usual Whoever is pulling strings up there, wow you sure are cruel.

Never felt this way before

UI'm so so tired. I jusr realised it's burnout. But there are so many things to be done that I just just drop everything. Long weekend from Friday onwards. But I don't see how I can survive till then. I obsess over deadlines every day even when I sleep. And today when I thought I got everything sorted....A new deadline came to mess my mind up. I've never been so u productive before. I really need this break. And I really need to unplug from work over the long weekend.

My sister came to help Me pack!! :D
And bought food for me to bring on my holiday! Ok I feel bad for thinking "why did my sister ask for a Sibling? If she didn't then I wouldn't need to exist today."

Friday, July 31, 2015

Maybe

Maybe I am just not cut out for this. Maybe I have the wrong kind of job. Maybe I am talentless loser and I should just curl up and die. Maybe I will never be successful. Maybe all the dreams, aspirations and goals I have... Are useless.

Maybe my brain isn't working anymore.
MAYBE I HAVE NO BRAIN.

That Offending Message from "- 7 Eleven"

So this offending message has been making its rounds on Whatsapp since yesterday. I don't know which bothers me more. The fact that scammers can do this !@#$ so freely, or that people find this !@#$ believable. And by this I mean: 

I mean, I'm sure you can spot hundreds of imperfect grammar/sentence structures on my blog. But for something supposedly official? What is 'Take 1 minute survey"? What kind of company is "-7 Eleven"? And really, (1 of the 50 available)? Why does the background colour clash with the logo's border? 

The same goes for FREE Rolls Royce campaigns. Or some other free whatever-it-was from a 6000-strong "Qatar. Airline" fanpage. Or some dude/girl who apparently has 10,000 brand new iPhones to GIVE away.
Anyway that's not the point. I'm so SICK of malware, viruses, scams, people conning the elderly of their savings. Why do they have to do things like that? Okay okay. Must be something to do with money lah. Then there's the argument of "you were never poor, you'd never understand why people resort to such means to get more money".

UGH ROT SCAMMERS ROT. Then again, there are to many people I wish would rot. Like irresponsible drivers who think they're oh-so-cool-over-alcohol-limit-but-still-garang-can-drive-bit-end-up-killing-people. Sex offenders. Bigots. Victim-blamers. And I think I've ever dedicated an entire blog post to this topic.

RAWRRRRRR.

My New Fitness Craze

Hello! I'm on another of my I NEED TO GET FITTER phase (and please let it last long this time). :D

In case you didn't know, my workplace is within walkable distance from my home now! Well, sorta, if you think 2 km's okay. Haha. So my colleagued introduce this app she uses and it's so fun! Okay I don't think it's 100% accurate because it the numbers did jump when I left them alone on my table, but hey, 95% is awesome too! Sure beats spending $$$ on a FitBit or some other fancy sports equipment! 



For some reason, I find the history tab really exciting - it's like, I can't wait to collect more activities! And perhaps see my time go down! :D 

Of course, there's another incentive for this, and it's.. I get to save 80 cents every time I walk home from my workplace! Hey, 80 cents is a lot, if you do the math. Let's say there are 20 weekdays a week -- that'll be $16. Factor in rainy evenings and those I meet my friends for dinner, I'd save at least $10-$12 a month! That's at least $120 a year - and it's a lot to me.

WOOHOO next goal: 20 minutes! :)

Oh the little things you can do to motivate yourself to keep fit and stay healthy!

I've been doing some research on some novelty fitness classes like hydro rider and some biking classes but well. Those can wait - let me find more FOC ways to keep myself motivated first. :P

Oh, the thought of having non-wobbly-bobbly (I mean toned lah) thighs for the first time in my life.

Zalora: Vouchers is the Magic Word

What comes to mind when you see or hear the word “voucher”? That's right! Discounts, discounts, discounts. And who doesn't love savings shopping coupons and vouchers? I know I do. :P

There's always some voucher code where Zalora is concerned. Haha. And don't you think the best thing about buying something is when you get to buy something at a reduced price? That feeling of satisfaction never gets old. HAHA.

Sometimes, I wait for 20% discounts to come by – but the funny thing about waiting is, when you're waiting for something, it just WON'T happen. And when it does.. There isn't anything you want to buy. Or you already bought it at the regular price. * hmph *

Then again, fret not. Here's how you can get a 10% discount anytime before 16 May 2015!



From now till May 2016, get to enjoy the perks of Zalora's special discounts as you shop for the latest fashion, right in the comfort of home. And here's an incentive to shop on the go – you get to use a voucher code for a 10% discount when you use Zalora's mobile app to shop! No more boring looooong train rides. :P

All you need to do is to key in the voucher code during checkout, and you're all set! Zalora is known for their fuss-free browsing and shopping experience, plus you don't have to squeeze with the weekend (especially during the Great Single Season!) crowd. With discounts, free delivery above $40, a 30-day free return policy and cash on delivery, what more could you ask for? Whip out that coupon voucher and start shopping! :D

First thing that comes to mind?

I really doubt anybody is interested to know more about me HAHA! I remember it was almost 10 years ago when surveys were cool! Hey, old fogeys like myself were cool in our time okay. :) Anyway, we used to do this in the notes section of Facebook and we'd tag all our friends. I don't think many people use the notes feature now, but I did some good ol' stalking and here's the one I picked!

Here goes!

Here is what you do. Use the 1st letter of your middle name to answer each of the following.They have to be real places, names, things... nothing made up! 

1) Your middle name starts with:
I don't have a middle name, but let's go with S! 

2) Famous artist/band/musician:
First person who comes to mind? Selena Gomez. 

3) 4-letter word:
Suck? Haha. And I was gonna think of another word, but, really, nothing comes to mind. Sorry XD

4) State:
Selangor! It's a state, right? 

5) Boy name:
Sergio. Don't even ask me why. I don't know any Sergios. I doubt you know any Segios. But that's me! Random all the timeeeee. 

6) Girl name:
Sarah

7) Animal:
Okay it took me a while. You know how sometimes you spend forever trying to think of something that's actually really simple? Yep that's one of those times. This is also one of those times I'm stalling for time. Wait why can't I think of an animal that starts with an S? I'm seriously itching to go Google it now but I ..... I GOTTA DO IT MYSELF. Okay not Simba. Snake? Nah that's a reptile. OKAY GOOGLE, YOU WIN.

hey you know what? 100 million other people have problems with it so I'm feelin' way better about myself now!

Right. Sheep! 


8) Something in the kitchen:
You know when some people say "women belong in the kitchen"?  And when certain people say it, it's funny, and when some other person says it, you want to punch him? It's a totally wrong theory because - OH I GOT IT. SPOON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

9) Reason for being late:
I'm almost never late. So... Haha. 

10) Body Part:
I was gonna Google it and choose a really advanced one and pretend to be all intellectual. Okay I really don't do this spur of the moment things very well. Then I saw... SPINE. Wait, How can I ever, ever forget that? I have a metal rod attached to my spine, for goodness sake! 

11) Drink:
Strawberry Milk

13) Something you eat:
Strawberries? Well technically it's something humans in general eat, because I don't really fancy real strawberies!

14) Your middle name:
Shu

15) Song:
Somewhere Only We Know. I loved the Glee version when Blaine sang it to Kurt and everybody did that running around musical thing! There's just something about musicals. Oh, and the song's gonna be stuck in my head until I go to sleep. And maybe not even then!

The Day I Dined Alone

Well, actually I do dine alone sometimes. I'm no super social butterfly, you know! Haha. It's quite enjoyable, actually, if you can get over the "Oh my goodness are people staring at me? Are people gossiping about why I'm alone" paranoia. I really doubt anybody does that. I mean, if you see someone eating alone, you won't think much of it, right?

Random fun fact. I like to watch movies alone. Haha.

Well, the other day, it wasn't as if I didn't have a date HAHA. I had to run a last minute errand and it so happened that I (again) got hit by a craving - this time, good ol' Swensens!

This was what I had, and I sure didn't regret it! I'm sorry if it doesn't look appetising hahaha.



And like I always say, what's a meal without dessert? There is always room for dessert! And I got a to bring back a cute coaster! 


Here's Hello Kitty saying hello as she swims in calories. You know what? I can think of something I love about eating alone. Okay maybe I eat too much but haha. Sometimes when I am out with friends, somehow everybody is "oh, I'm too full for dessert...". And in my heart I'm thinking "how can anyone be full?" but then I'll be like "Okay lah I don't order also lah" even though I really, really felt like getting dessert.

And sometimes when I do, I get "wah you really eat a lot hor?" or "Seriously? You're getting more food?" or worse, everybody who said they weren't hungry all ATTACKS my dessert. (is there a crying and pulling own hair emoticon? hahaha)

So now you know, I'm one of those girls who just eats, eats and eats.  XD


And boy, people sure wake up late these days. It was about 11.30am that Saturday when I took this picture, and the crowd only started coming in after 12.30! My friend said that it looks like I booked the entire place hahaha. So romantic ah. Me and my phone -.-



After that, I went to do some shopping! This is something I wanted to buy, and I spent a loooooong time thinking about this. Now that I'm here (and I ended up not buying it), well... sometimes when you need to contemplate for so long, you shouldn't buy it. The only reason I wanted it was because it cost only $20 haha. The dull colour doesn't even compliment my skin tone hahaha don't know I think so long for what ah! Anyway, don't you just love the fitting rooms at H&M? You get to have a 360 degree view of how the outfit looks on you without having to twist and turn and get a crick in your neck!


Because shopping is some tiring business,  I went to my favourite spot for a rest. I love it here! There's almost always a seat, and it's so quiet and peaceful And there's free WiFi. And the seats are reasonably far apart from each other. I am very particular about personal space haha. I have another favourite spot in ION Orchard - the 55th story, but I've mentioned that before so I shan't bore you! 



Here's the view. You can hardly find such a non human-congested place in Singapore these days, and that's why I love it here. Look at the first level - obviously I'm not the only one who feels this way haha. :) 


And here's a selfie! I cut my fringe! This pair of glasses makes my nose even larger. Than it already is. Arghhhhh.  Okay that's all! Cya!

Bad Things Comes in Threes?

Do you believe in this?

As much as I dislike certain superstitious beliefs, there are some which have happened a few too many times for me to not believe in. Like this one.

First
So last week, I was fulfilling my usual bubble tea requirement intake, and..... it came with no pearls, even when I did request for pearls. I mean, bubble tea with no pearls? Pearls are the reason I love bubble tea so much! Oh, the smooth bouncy goodness. Haha.


Second
While I was walking back to the office after getting my food, something about  the left side of my shoes felt a little weird. I shook it off because.. hey, I check that pair of shoes all the time -- just to see if I needed a new pair (I have two pairs of shoes where I buy the same model over and over again, but well, that's another story.). THEN I REALISED THE SOLES AT THE FRONT CAME OFF. And I was so terrified that I'd fall. But I didn't thank goodness.

At this point of my life, this bad things happen in threes thing has been pretty much proven. So I was bracing myself for the worst. And for it to hit me when I was least expecting it. And everybody knows I have the best imagination in the whole wide world so....


Third
Imagine a hot, smoldering sunny day. You spend eight minutes walking to the food centre, and another 8 walking back. You are so hungry and so, so ready to dig in, You open your packet of rice and realise..... NO SPOON.

How would you react? Haha on a regular day I'd have been all ARGHHHHH. But this time... I went. OH THANK GOODNESS. That's all?

YAYYYYYY.

Okay so there's my story for the week. Have a good week ahead! :D

What was young Steve Jobs like?

Oh my goodness I feel like cow dung now. :(

I wonder what brilliant people like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs were when they were young. Where they good at their jobs? Were they ever young, inexperienced, or green?

Why am I so lousy?

Well, something happened that could justify my inaptness, but just a BIT - honestly, there is no excuse for my stupidity or eternal failure-dom. If anything, I blame myself.

At least... It wasn't a mistake. Now those I am unbelievably adverse to. Only when they are committed by me, of course.

And when people are so nice about it, I feel doubly, triply bad.

I've been at my new job for a month, and I really don't see any stark improvements. Which is really difficult for me to stomach because... To excel is what I've always wanted for myself. You know, I actually wouldn't mind it the road to success was TOUGH. It's the "not knowing whether you'll reach there" thing that really bugs me.

You know it's true. Not everyone who works hard makes it. There's a weight limit on the Success Meter. Which has a little to do with luck as well - this you also know is true.

I always meet people who give me chances. Every single time, it's because they feel I am "eager", "driven" etc. But I think they forgot to access level of stupidity. Because "motivation" and "stupidity" are like oil and water. They just don't mix, no matter how much you shake it.

Perhaps one day, I'll be a top journalist and look back and laugh about this in my best-selling memoir.

And the question that pops into my mind ever-so-occasionally (i.e once in a few years)... Why was I born?

And obviously, I'm not going to get any answers from this blog post, since you know, the only person who really cared about this blog and every word in it (no matter how stupid or boring or inconsequential) is gone.

I can't be a failure (is mediocre a better term?) FOREVER. I still have at least 70 years to go!

Then again, this gives me another chance for my very favorite hobby. To prove people right, and prove people wrong.

When I Dream, I Dream of You


It's been such a long time since I was last year. It's also because I started a more personal blog elsewhere, in memory of a good friend (one of the few who actually read my blog). 

I don't know why, but I feel so... lethargic and listless all the time. I wish... I made the move to go on a short staycation. But it's too late now because... I just started on my new job, and won't be able to take leave for 3 months. And yes, new job! How time flies, huh? I hope here's another chance to shine.

Anyway, here's a song that (very uncharacteristically) caught my attention. Hope y'all like it!

Here's one more that can add many pops of colour to your OOTD. The Classic Pointy Heels are chic, simple, and versatile. Comes in black, white, and striking shades of pink and blue – I'd buy all of them if I could afford it, really.

 
I always believe that, if all fails, turn to wedges (and also because I'm clumsy and would totally fall flat on my face if i wear to wear stilettos, haha). Melissa Patchuli Wedges are classy and versatile, perfect for a work day, or even a weekend out! You can get it in black or white, have fun choosing!

Sick or What

What do you call feeling sick but nobody, not even you, knows why exactly you feel sick?
It's called. Horrible.
Or maybe its called Coming Down with Something.
I can't stand it. I can't think straight, can't sleep, don't feel like eating or going out.
Also, some people are so inconsiderate, and I hope they pay :(
Hope I can drag myself out of bed tomorrow.

A Wonderful Tagline

Why some peole can write such beautifully-crafted taglines and intro paragraphs. I've been collecting brochures and EDMs until I think I'll I could like, build a paper house (and I get like 50 EDMs a day). BUT OMGGGG when I even ATTEMPT to come u with something, I get so, so tired. Argh. Why did my teachers tell me I'd be a writer when I grow up? Writers all write captivating taglines. I don't. HA and I think I'm on like, the 10th page of "How To Write A Great Tagline". And you know when you reach a certain page on search engine, it means you are desperate.

I feel like I'll never be good at anything

And the feeling is terrible. I want to be a brilliant writer... But how? :( you might be one of the better ones in school, but in the real world, it's so different. What if I live the rest of my life just average, or *gasp* below average and never growing? :(

I wonder if brilliant writers are born or bred. Or maybe my life is a lie arghhhh I mean all this time in school, teachers all say I'd grow up to be a writer. But sometimes I look at the stuff top agencies do and I'd be like -- okay I could never have pulled that off.

And it's not like I didn't try! I am a brochure/phamplet/EDM packrat. Andi really don't know how to make myself improve. I mean, I used to think,"Oh, practice makes perfect!" But after practicing and not seeing significant improvements, it is sooooo discourage 

What, no secret formula? Makes me wish I was good at numbers. 

Alsooooo is this considered complaining omg. One of my life resolutions is to keep complaint sessions to a minimum. 

Shop for ALDO Shoes at Zalora!

A girl can never have too many shoes.

How many of you agree with that? I know I do. Haha.

ALDO shoes for women are now available on Zalora, so you it's time to shop, shop, and shop! And hopefully, there's a sale (like there often is on Zalora) when you do.



For the Edgy Girl
With its glossy patent finish, edgy chunky heels design and a jagged sole, the Serinna Boots is a stunner. Pair it with a simple top, a pair of skinny jeans (and maybe shades, if you'll be outdoors), and you're good to go! What's more, these boots come with a back zip fastening, so it's less off a hassle to put on. For a similar with design with a lower heel, check out the Kaleo Brogues. You can also rock the edgy look with the Afaleri Boots' sleek design with chunky heels.

For the Laid-Back Weekend Outfit

The Loalian Sandal from ALDO features a T-strap design with metallic embellishments. I think it'll look great with pretty much anything, so that's one less headache over your weekend ensemble! Comes in Bone (white) and Cognac (brown) too.

Because Sporty is Cute Too

Have you ever felt like, some days, you want to look as girlish as possible, and others, you just want to have this sporty, spunky look? Try the Jerayng, slip-ons that feature a leopard print pattern with elasticised insteps. If you're feeling more rocker-ish, try the Grisill Loafers! The studs embellishments and zip fastenings will surely add a bounce to your step. And if you really want to go all out to be sporty, it's no problem as well! The multi metallic Flasch Sneakers will give you comfort,
and they come with a bit of bling!

The Glamourous Night Out
I don't party, but I expect when people do, they like to bring on the bling. ALDO's Ceglia Heels features a pointed toe design and comes along with contrasting metal slim heels and scalloped trim, and you can choose between Black and Pewter colours. If you can't stand the thought of standing on stilettos for the entire night, fret not. The Agrelilla High Heels comes with a thicker heel but are just as fancy. And if you're not on the mood for high heels, the Olyvia Flats, with its shimmery surface would be perfect for a discomfort-free night out.

First Blog Post of 2015!

It's funny how I used to have plans all the time when I was a little younger. This year, I spent New Year's Eve at home doing... nothing. Maybe just lazing around. I don't remember the last time I had no plans for NYE. Well I might have had, but I just don't remember. Bahh.

Oh, actually I spent NYE scrolling through Instagram and watching people play with their babies. And then I  thought back to some of the wrong choices that I have made. I think if I collected them in bottles and kept them in my room, I would have to sleep in the living room.

Every year is more eventful than the last, and it's the case for this year too. This year, I was extra aggressive about achieving my goals, and I think it might have backfired (towards the end of the year). I was so tired, I think I might have screwed two major opportunities up.

I guess that's how you learn, huh? Out of the two, there is one I really, really set my heart on, and I'm hoping and praying every day that everything will work out in the end. PLEASE. It's a brand new year, and as clichéd as it sounds, I would like to write a good book. And not one that's good for just the first 11 chapters. I want a good last chapter too.  Ambition is good, but you can't push yourself too hard, I guess?

Also, this year, I hope a new phone and a flip-screen camera will magically appear.

And that if people even ATTEMPT to push me into a bottomless pit of boiling soup, may all karma rebound on every possible surface, multiply, go straight back to them, and may they fall into the scalding soup of their least favourite flavour.
