Goodbye my Hero...

It had been a dark week for the sunny island where I resides in
There was gloom in the air, as my country mourn for the departure of our founding PM, Mr Lee Kuan Yew
Almost everyone I know talk and speak of nothing, except the greatness of this man, a man who had devoted his entire life for Singapore, the place I call home

It had too been an exceptionally emotional period for me
I was out station in China when I received news of his deteriorating health
Everyday my bestie and LDR would bring me news of his situation, day in day out I prayed that he could pull it through
Flipping on CNN at the end of my every working day and not hearing news of his death was my best comfort in the bitter cold foreign land
Every night I prayed for the same, “Pls hang in there Mr Lee…”

Dinner Dating @HillV2 Kinsa Sushi

I swear I am not a glutton by nature
But as years go by, as more and more need to be accomplish in a day, as my energy drains faster than a Samsung mobile battery depletion,
There really wasn’t much for me to look forward except a sumptuous meal at the end of a crazy day

The Most Brilliant Politician You Never Knew

Source: Backthatsassup

The most brilliant politician you never knew is on his deathbed. Hooked up to a ventilator – a contraption designed to replace the most basic of human functions – a withered 91 year old faces the inevitable. Alongside him, a nation awaits, heavy with the knowledge that for many, their world will never be quite the same.

Wakening the Cooking Talent

I can't even remember when was the last time I did a full meal cooking
I vividly remembered being on the phone with my mum for almost 2 hours, in a desperately attempt to cook fish ball vermicelli for my late hubby
and vaguely remembering that coincidentally, everyone else in the family suddenly have an appointment that night and no one, except my late hubby, stayed for dinner
I definitely remembered him finishing up every bits of my cooking, just the way he had promised

Bring Back the Light Again

I am a big fan for accessories
Problem is, I have this oddly special skin, that is allergic to any metals except the best
And something in me turns even silver made accessories black, faster than I can imagine ┐(‘~`;)┌
Many of my beloved necklaces had turned so dark... it was almost shameful to be wearing them

And then my "saviour" came along

Happy Birthday My Beloved Lucas

My Dear Lulu,

A year ago, you were still so small. Fast forward ahead, you have now blossom into a charming, incredibly handsome and bright boy. You were a big bundle of joy to all that you touch. Thank you for being the source of strength through your mummy’s tough times, Thank you for bringing a smile to my day when your mum sends me extremely adorable pictures of you. I couldn’t than

It had been an exciting period, hearing your mummy talk about her plans for your ever first birthday. Seeing her torn between choosing an extremely pretty Safari theme birthday cake that would look good on pictures but you won’t get to eat, or a mummy’s-home-made birthday cake that the guests may not appreciate but you would definitely get to enjoy, was absolutely comical.

In years to come, you might have no recollection of this day. But if you ever read this… don’t forget your mum’s love for you. And I wish you health and happiness always. May we all be blessed to hear your sunshine laughters and bathe in your endearing charm always

Why the modern world is bad for your brain

Source: The Guardian - Extracted from The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload, published by Viking

Our brains are busier than ever before. We’re assaulted with facts, pseudo facts, jibber-jabber, and rumour, all posing as information. Trying to figure out what you need to know and what you can ignore is exhausting. At the same time, we are all doing more. Thirty years ago, travel agents made our airline and rail reservations, salespeople helped us find what we were looking for in shops, and professional typists or secretaries helped busy people with their correspondence. Now we do most of those things ourselves. We are doing the jobs of 10 different people while still trying to keep up with our lives, our children and parents, our friends, our careers, our hobbies, and our favourite TV shows.

A Magical Valentine's Day

Part 1 of LDR's Valentine's Plan 1 ended quietly and peacefully
Combing through my mountainous dresses collection
Dishearten that I am quickly growing (horizontally) out from my best dresses
Depressed that despite the numbers, I can't find a single dress that compliments my aesthetics
It's our first time together, I really want to look good for you, just for you
