    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 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...

    Yesterday’s dinner was at NOX, this restaurant where you dine in complete darkness. Our server, Rahmat (I’m certain I have spelt his name incorrectly) is visually impaired. But in the darkness, I instantly became the worried and cautious one. He cruised around the dining room with so ...

    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...

    A big part of the hotel is made of ice – the rooms, the bar, the dance hall, the church. Apart from that, there were also some log houses and the main admin building which is a wooden building as well. That’s where luggages were stored and where the washrooms were. There were also gue...
