My Word Of The Day Is Strong

I've got an hour to dinner and I really wanted to nap but them thoughts won't stop running in my head.

On an important note, I went back to PD for my high school reunion on Saturday evening and it was great to meet up with classmates whom I spent 2 years of my life with, but have not met for the past 10 years. The amazing thing that struck me was how little I remember of them, though the memories of being away from home and training everyday, and falling asleep in class are still vividly anchored in my head. I wonder if I hadn't made enough effort to make friends back then. Well, the beauty of such reunions is that you get to see how everyone is doing and then moving forward in life, you kinda get a sense of what you should do in life now if you want to see a difference 10 years from now.

1. I left my Strawberry and Passionfruit Eclair in the office refrigerator. Grr.

2. One more week to Boracay!

3. If you've not seen strong today, she's strong.

4. You see, the thing about me is that if you don't have the decency to tell me things that will affect me somehow or another, don't expect me to play nice with you next time either.

5. My current desktop wallpaper:


I am a cool girl too. No need for Echo Smith's Cool Kids!

6. If you want something bad enough, you'd do what it takes. If your life depended on it, you'd hang on till your fingers give out. If you don't try or if you don't ask, the answer will be a resounding no.

7. I like the feisty me. But sometimes, I too wonder where that part of me has gone to.

8. Must make dinner meals healthy meals.

9. I broke my necklace yesterday. It got stuck to my backpack so I yanked it and it broke. /sniff That's the second white gold chain I've managed to destroy, and the only chain that I have left.

10. Yesterday, I heard a short clip of them being interviewed on the radio and the question was, "What would your boyfriend's think about your celebrity activities?" And their answers were pretty quirky.

年初三

祝大家 新年快乐 身体健康 一帆风顺 天天快乐 。。。

I knew I shouldn't have had that 13 slices of bacon. You see, I woke up really wanting to eat bacon and because Mom only buys things in bulk, the entire slab of bacon was frozen together and the only way to defrost them quick was to steam the entire packet, which is exactly what I did.

And I topped it off with an egg fried with a tonne of garlic. Nommms!

I am wondering at the circumstances of life. Or of things and situations. It's really quite a funny thing.




May the goat year bring lots of joy, happiness and good health to all of us! xx

Favourites

My favourite feeling is happiness.

My favourite tea has to be Earl Grey.

My favourite pastime is to sit down at Starbucks for a couple of hours and to catch up on my reading undisturbed.

My favourite sensation is feeling all weak and achy but strong - I know it is contradictory but I also think people understand what I am trying to say, from a good workout.

My favourite food for now is Kyo Chon Korean Fried Chicken.

Favourite colors are all pastel shades.

My Latest Man Crush


Ji Chang Wook

Great week ahead, it's CNY week too!

Love Is

My nose is freaking itchy. And my face has been invaded once more by what I can only describe as unwelcomed guests. My room has been invaded by mozzies. I'm (somewhat) sleep deprived. I haven't been working out for 3 days in a row. I ate too much for dinner last night. I haven't been as supportive a friend to many of my peers as of late. And if I were to go on, I'd be able to find many many more faults..

It is easy to get bogged down by all the negativity. And I'm not even talking beyond myself as a person. I am tired of feeling sorry for myself. And only I can change that. And only when I am capable of being strong can I then help others. Or at least be of use to people. 

So, today, instead of focusing on what's not right, I'm going to do the exact opposite.

1. Checking your email to see that your friend has sent you the entire OST of the drama she has zero interest in watching.

2. Your ex-class monitor sending you a personal text to find out when you are available to attend the high school class reunion dinner and you subsequently realizing that the date has been changed so that you now can make it to the reunion.

3. Being respectful towards family when you disagree with their opinion but by refraining from retaliating in an unkind manner.

4. Sending a "I don't want to get out of bed" text to your friend, to receive a reply that hits all the right notes.

5. This tune.

Auditory Hallucinations - Jang Jae In feat NaShow

6. Being disciplined enough to squeeze in a mini workout, no matter how short it was.

7. Coming home hungry to see 3 nuggets left on table, just the right amount of supper snack.

8. Just being able to be here, now, in this moment. To make things a little bit better, not matter how small, or how great, but to being able to.

Is love.

Of Tutu Skirts

Sudden urge to strut around in a tutu skirt. Only problem is, I don't own one. And, that I ain't three no more nor did I make it to become a ballerina.

Things I think about before I fall asleep.


Summit - Skrillex ft Ellie Goulding

Heard this when climbing the other day. I can totally imagine working out to this tune. Or just driving along a traffic-free scenic road, with the wind in my face and my shades on. And then stopping at a perfect spot to see the sunset. Perfection.

Not a tune for a tutu skirt that's for sure.

It's A New Day Dawning


10,000 Reasons

1. I think brown rice makes my throat a little sore everytime.

2. While I am glad to be working out more regularly, And hopefully am becoming stronger, there are two things that I dislike simultaneously. One, I am constantly hungry. Two, I keep getting tempted to buy more workout stuff. And the sports bra(s) I bought previously from Mizuno is now on 30%.

3. I think I am in need of a haircut. The hair just doesn't look/feel right.

4. Personally, I've been going through a strange phase, probably due to all the hormonal changes imbalance and whatever else. And I know that many of my friends too, are going through some tough and trying times. So the verse below encouraged me, I hope it does to you too.

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

Have a great week ahead everyone! xx

Don't Touch Me, She Says

As it turns out, something must be wrong, but I don't know what, and therefore I can't fix it.

I had a whole can of sardine to myself for dinner, which I promptly stir-fried with cubed choy po (pickled vegetable) and it was really quite tasty.

Tomorrow, I'm gonna make myself an egg omelette with bacon for breakfast and also cook that salmon fillet that's been sitting in my freezer for almost a week for lunch at work, with brown rice that my maid's gonna be cooking for me because it takes 30 - 40 mins cooking time.

That much time is crucial beauty sleep time.


Don't Touch Me - Ailee

I don't want to sweat after I've showered, it irritates me that I end up with chores after I've cleaned up. I'm just gonna delay them to tomorrow.

I am really tempted to have some icecream, like really tempted to, but I did have 3 bars of Kit Kat at work today.. and I hadn't worked out much this evening either.

The soles of my foot are massively sore. I wonder if it has something to do with my shoes, or the way I do my skippy rope.

I can't read two books at the same time, I get confused and the storylines get mixed up.

Strawberry tea yums!

Now that I've changed the position of my table placement in my room - which was to allow for more space to exercise, the fan kinda blows at my hair from behind, and that too irritates me.

Today, I lost my temper because I was hungry and was made to wait for lunch. I'd felt bad that I got angry, and that I attributed it to the wrong people and things, I am sorry rubbish bin for kicking you.

And I used the f word one too many times. Not that I am proud of it. I wonder where all these angst is coming from.

And I've got a really flabby tummy.

Till I figure it all out..
