Believe in yourself.

I've always been a people-pleaser. I can't say no, I always offer to help, I go out of my way to make people happy. This is especially true in the workplace. I think I've always had this need to prove myself. (Is this the middle-child syndrome talking?) My idea of self-worth is by validation if... Continue Reading →


New Zealand Part 1: Being Sick in Christchurch (Circa 2014)

So it all began with a 8-hours flight from Singapore to Brisbane, excruciatingly-long transit of 7 hours in Brisbane airport, and followed by another 4 hours to Christchurch. Truth is, this travel arrangement would be annoying, but bearable because I usually could just sleep through anything, including storm and earthquake (a lil' exaggeration never hurts),...

People Change. Memories Don’t.

(I found this unpublished draft in my blog recently, and so I thought I'd share it. I wrote this quite a while back actually. It's interesting to read what my younger-self was thinking.) So I was on my way back a couple of nights ago after a movie-night with my friend, and I was just... Continue Reading →

We had mookata at Golden Mile and we ate til our hearts content and the whole thing just cost $45! I got myself a Singha beer for $8 and the bottle was huge! It was definitely... Continue Reading →


Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.

Hi Me. How are you?

You know, I try so hard to please everyone, but in the process, I make myself unhappy. I convinced myself that by making other people happy, I will be happy too. And sure, that works. But then, doesn’t that just mean that your happiness depend entirely on others? What about my own happiness? One that... Continue Reading →

For the better.

I was constantly on the lookout. Even when I was with someone, somehow I managed to find excuses to break away because I wasn't comfortable being in one place for a long time. I blamed it on my short-attention-span, but in the end it all boiled down to my own immaturity.I don't know how it... Continue Reading →
