    I am so happy that the trip happened. I didn’t get to travel much this year, really far cry from the 16 cities I went to last year. Sim and Michelle were such great company, really cannot ask for more. 2016 marks the first time I travelled with friends, and also the year that I experi...

    Shaken, Not Stirred | S I X P E G S 09 Nov '16, 8pm

    On some good days, I wake up feeling brave. I start unpacking suitcases filled with clothes because I want to quit seeing my home as a halfway house; as if it is just going to be temporary, like after a while I’ll be whole enough to reintegrate into my old life. I bought new bedsheets...

    Rubbish thoughts, really. | S I X P E G S 26 Oct '16, 10pm

    I wake up everyday seeking solace and happiness – in little things like good coffee, listening to songs that I like, choosing to wear clothes that are comfortable to be in, eat things I like to eat, spend time with people I adore, do things that makes me feel good, please people whose...

  • I Do Not Love You

    I Do Not Love You | S I X P E G S 24 Oct '16, 12pm

    I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist, nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I...

    Mad | S I X P E G S 10 Sep '16, 10pm

    There are times when I feel like I want to pour my hearts out into words, but I can hardly do so. Sometimes, thoughts go by so fast, I didn’t have enough time to translate them into words. I can’t quite find the right words. I keep it all in my head. The writer’s block is so real, and...

    I Started A Joke | S I X P E G S 07 Aug '16, 1pm

    Two weeks ago, my first thought was to sneak away to Eastern Europe to spend my birthday with complete strangers from, I don’t know, a hostel? Dubrovnik in Croatia, Budapest in Hungary, Lviv in Ukraine, Moscow in Russia – I had sussed out what are the kind of people, food and sights t...

    Stage 4, going on 5. | S I X P E G S 20 Jul '16, 8pm

    3:30am, lying in my own bed, still feeling a little intoxicated from the couple of glasses of red wine and good company I had a couple of hours ago. Last time I checked, I was still feeling all perked up and chirpy, but it almost always changes for the worse in the wee hours when I’m ...

    With both hands empty and her heart full, the girl made a promise: to love and comfort me – and at times, visit me in the abyss, to honor and keep me – though, in ways I may not comprehend, in sickness and in health, but not in times my ego swells, for richer and for poorer; on the cr...

    This is the Céline Trapeze Bag which I have recently swopped. The “fillings” (Sorry, I’m in the food industry and I cannot find a better word to describe this lol) in the bag’s handle has shifted and one part of the handle is now limp and flat. I think this is one of the biggest issue...

    It was really weird travelling back in time. In diaries, there were no self-censorship. And for a while, I forgot that it is already 2016. And I could really relive every moment I described so vividly in those books. How I was afraid to go out alone with a boy when I was in secondary ...

    Loneliness x Solitude | S I X P E G S 05 Jun '16, 5pm

    Loneliness is a painful, negative state. It is where we feel alone, and cut off and estranged from other people. Thus, we may feel as if we are excluded, unwanted, unimportant or unnoticed. We can be surrounded by people we know and love and still experience feelings of intense loneli...

    I never knew how people did it – travelling alone, that is. It is 4:21am and I should really be sleeping now but I am overwhelmed with both fear and excitement that I think it will be hard for me to drift into lala-land. So I might as well blog. A small part of me always wanted to tra...

    If you are at first lonely, be patient. If you’ve not been alone much, or if when you were, you weren’t okay with it, then just wait. You’ll find it’s fine to be alone once you’re embracing it. We could start with the acceptable places, the bathroom, the coffee shop, the library. Wher...

    It was my longest flight to date – seriously the jet lag is not funny at all. We picked a nice little apartment near Castro from Airbnb which is spacious and bright (for makeup during the big day! Haha!) and somewhat near City Hall. We thought it’s only fair that we stayed at a pretty...

    Singapore was one of the 14 states of Malaysia from years 1963 to 1965, ending our days of being a British colony. But because of the many disagreements and racial tension, we were voted (126-0) out of the Federation. That left our beloved Mr Lee Kuan Yew tearful because he believed i...
