It just hit me that I have ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD to do what I want. To FINALLY learn guitar, to read up on photography, to attend baking classes, to go on A D V E N T U R E S. my gosh.
I ought to be using my time wayyy wiser!!! That's the thing about freedom. Too much of it and you end up not using it well and wasting all you have. None of it and we cry out in agony and complaint.
That said, this time I'm gonna make use of the time I have to learn and grow and improve from what I am. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hehe, since the day is winding down, I'll talk about what happened today. Which was pretty much family day ๐Ÿ™‚ first was SAM w Yang & Kao, with the original intention of heading to the Photobooth hahaa but it spoilt unfortunately. Why do these things always happen sigh…I feel like ๅˆ˜ๅค‡ and ไธ‰้กพ่Œ…ๅบ. Am I being tested? Lul I'll be back for sure! I'm getting those photobooth strips ๐Ÿ™‚

The visit ended up being quite informative and interesting so, yay :> learnt about artists and different forms of expression, some of which I didn't rly understand. But as Kao said, its more about your own interpretation of it so I guess that's not much of a problem.

Cool shot don't you think? Haha just trying to capture the fact that three of us bought matching Captain America shirts earlier on at Redhill Market ๐Ÿ™‚

Me trying to be cool in the group shot. We actually have more ~artistic~ looking photos but they're mostly on Kao's camera so I hope we'll get it soon ๐Ÿ™‚

Okay lastly we went for Monkey Goes West aft lunch at Marchรฉ @ 313Somerset ๐Ÿ™‚ it was HILARIOUS. (p/s about lunch I tried rosti and it was nothing to shout about pft, pork knuckle was gooood) I loved Sandy and the goodlooking Ah Tang hehe. Sandy was the funniest imo and she had the stereotypical malay makcik voice which made me burst out laughing a lot of times :p ofc Monkey God was kinda a strong role as well and Pigsy a good supporting actress. Overall a funny pdtn by Wildrice again ๐Ÿ™‚ –

They're making me regret what I wrote in my A Level GP essay on the Arts in SG HAJJAA but that's another story…..well :p

Went cycling yesterday ^_^ w Simin, Vanessa, Tricia & (a new friend!) Yue Ning! It was super funnnn! We decided to rent a family bike and one regular mountain bike and then switch every 15-30mins.
IT WAS NO JOKE TRUST ME. I almost died bc it was so tough to cycle on the Family Bike HAHHAAH. Four people cycling but only moving at 1/4 the speed. I bet everyone else was laughing at us ๐Ÿ˜‚ but folks, don
4 laugh till you try it man, it really is difficult!!!
Ok how bout some pix :p

Step shots by the beach – breakwater

It looks like that btw, haha it was very cute, all decorated and christmassy ^_^ a couple of families also rode on the bike but rlyyyyy slowly

Group shot #1 after we cycled back to return the bikes!! ๐Ÿ™‚ haha how #whitegirl can we get man we got Starbucks on the way to the end of ECP. Hurhur, mocha frapp grandรฉ for me and it wasn't that good, would have much preferred caramel frapp(!!!!) :p
Also, saw yew peng, and their st gabs gang (??) so that was a coincidence!

Group shot #2 ๐Ÿ™‚

Our cardio for the day HAHAHAHAH. Damn tiring man I nearly died and I swore I thought I'd be aching today haha. Look at my nice legs lulz

We made macarons aft heading back to Tricia's house aft Strictly Pancakes which was pretty good ๐Ÿ™‚ aren't the batters so pretty?! Ahhh love the different shades of pink~ I snatched the batters to mix the dyes in before I had to leave ๐Ÿ˜ฆ for my job interview! At river valley haiz.
I walked up and down River Valley rd for 1/2 hr before finally finding FiveandDime haha. Thank goodness the interview went fine, I really like the people and atmosphere there :> hope I get the job! ๐Ÿ’–๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ™†๐Ÿ‘…

Would loveeeee to own Perks but…..I just bust my budget so. HAHAHA joke's on me.

forgotten SO many things/practices/names church-related but i'm so glad I went today ๐Ÿ™‚ it was utterly enlightening and relatable. I learnt SO much.

Passion.
Creativity.
Leadership.
The 3 main things the leader preached about today. Most impactful part was his 4 lessons he learnt about good leadership.

A good leader has to:
1) Listen
2) Empower
3) Acknowledge (his strengths and weaknesses)
4) Discover

After today's sermon I realised how lacking I was in all 4 aspects, especially when I'm quick to talk and give my opinions, leaving others to listen to me. James 1:19 is extremely relevant, "So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath". I will try my best from now on to fulfill all of them, so I can not just be a better leader, but also a better friend and to let myself grow.

Thought I'd die without Gladys & Jose but it went surprisingly well ๐Ÿ™‚ met the usuals, (friendly ones thank God!!!!) Chen Shan sat beside me, then there was Jax who came to pick me at the white gate. Along w Stella, John (whose name I KEEP forgetting for reasons unknown to me, SORRYYY!! :(( ) saw Garrett (qt!!!!) & that guy in the cg with small eyes (also qt!!!!)
Haha they're gg to Changi City Point (?!) to eat but I alrdy have plans to home ๐Ÿ™‚
So thankful that they rmb my name & all though –

I'm hardly active in the whatsapp/church services haha. But today I made a solemn promise, and I intend to fulfill that promise to God to serve him better. To attend service religiously, with or without gladys & jose!

Carousell will sooner or later lead to my demise.

Can’t believe I’m saying this but I’m gonna need a job. To support my spendthrift-ness. Doesn’t that word just confuse you bc i know i spent half my life thinking it meant thrifty, which in actual fact, is of the opposite meaning. oh well, what can i say? it’s #english afterall haha
