The Trap of Mediocrity

I didn’t see it before, but now it’s so crystal clear to me. Mediocrity is such a trap. It puts you in a safe lull, plop right in the middle. Safe, right? But that’s the problem. It’s the bloody middle. When you’re there you’ll feel no motivation to move up or down cos you’ll be so damned contented where you are. Right there, floating in the damned middle. In fact if you ask me, the middle is the worst place to be, far worse than being at the peak (uh, duh) and at the bottom of things. (knowing you have so much more potential) Because, likely 10/20/50 years from now, you’ll still be right where you were. THE MIDDLE.

When you’re mediocre, you’re neither here nor there. No one starts off saying “Hey I aim to be mediocre”, because it means you’re not good enough to be at the top. And that sucks. Mediocrity is horrible. Mediocrity means you’re unlikely to be remembered by anyone and anything, and where’s the good in that?? Mediocrity is like this giant pit in between sucking very badly and being awesome. A very large pit. A dump where people are put and still in their own bubble thinking they aren’t doing that badly. But I’ve had enough. What’s the point in doing something only to be mediocre? Take it from someone who’s been there her entire life. But that’s gonna change today. When I do something, I’m going to be the very best, or not do it at all.

Mediocrity, you can kiss my ass.

Meitu?!?? 

HOMAIGAD. I just went on Meitu Xiu Xiu for fun after ages of not touching that shit and it was craaaaaazy. 

Once I started, I could not stop.

Edit after edit. On and on. And what’s worse is that with the added ability to be able to correct your “flaws”, it does nothing but make you nitpick at MORE AND MORE flaws and it was so scary 💀 like first a simple pimple, then another, and another, and oh how about just get rid of all of them! Then it would be a slimmer face, longer legs etc. It’s so scary that I exited the app after about 10 mins of editing my flaws. 

Holy shit man 🙀 what are apps like these even do to the self esteem of young teenage girls?!?? 

Evil English Winds

This morning I had the fortune/misfortune of having an encounter with the English Wind. My dear friends from Singapore, if you think Singapore wind is wind, think again. Okay let’s just say that if Singapore wind was the occasional gentle breeze named Windy then the Evil English wind would be A WHOLE OTHER LEVEL-UP-ed EXTREMELY SCARY VERSION CALLED Evil English Wind. 

When facing the EEW, it is a battle between it and your umbrella. Your freaking umbrella better be military certified or some badass shit or else you’re better off not even carrying one cos that’ll only increase the surface area and hence pressure AGAINST you. Fancy getting whacked in the face with every step you take? The EEW is for you. Do you enjoy the menacing roar of the wind from outside your window? I can’t think of anything but the EEW. What? You LOVE seeing people’s overturned umbrellas? Oh hell the EEW is DEFINITELY FOR YOU!!!! Except you might be one of the victims of this blasted wind and that might be a funny image…

Dear EEW PLEASE SPARE ME. 

Sorry for the lack of posts, been too busy online shopping (more like getting my card declined HAHAHAH) and coughing my guts out. With that lovely image in mind……

(Segway 🛬🛬🛬) what year is this BTW why do we not have a segway emoji?!?? @APPLE!!!! 

Some basic catch up, the weather is just turning equal parts COLD and WET. Which might sound delightful on their own but together it’s like the devil’s spawn, trust me. OK maybe not as bad BUT it is a horrible timing to get sick in. (You know it’s getting bad when you’re starting to feel major abdominal pains when you cough) I have been sick for approximately half a week now and this cough is showing no mercy. With a presentation on Thursday that makes up 10% of my marks I AM LITERALLY TRYING OUT EVERYTHING IN THE HOPE THAT SOMETHING CAN CURE THIS VIRUS!!!! BOOoOOooOo. 

Next, at least it has been quite eventful this past week or so thanks to end-of-Oct-to-beginning-November festivities. I attended Halloween celebrations and watched the Guy Fawkes Night fireworks display. 🙂 both of which were vastful enjoyable, though on different scales altogether.

  
Shoutout to ma makeup prodigy/friend Courts!!!! Apparently she was so good at her job she made me unrecognizable to my own mother LOL……#notajoke

  
Of course I had to B612 (selfie app) this awesome shizz man 

  
Gonna just put some random clip of the fireworks from Guy Fawkes Night!!! It was really long by any standards man, at least a 15-20 minute thing. Super thankful it went on cos at 4+pm it was still drizzling that dau (and I stared dejectedly out the window from my hella boring accounting class yas I remember that) 

Another takeaway, this overseas thing has made me reach a peak in my domestic level, as I will exemplify in the following photos bc PIX OR IT DIDN’t HAPPEN hor Obviously I took pics. (Also to prove I left the kitchen 100% fine) 

  
Kimchi soup (ok the base was from a packet I got from the Asian supermart but SOMEONE had to put it all together OK) 

   
 Panfried salmon & tomato omelette. My favourite to cook cos it’s brainless and ridiculously easy. (Also the first thing I dared to attempt here) 

  
100% homecooked mapo tofu. Wa this one….even I was impressed by myself LOL was inspired cos I saw this super simple recipe for noobs by @mummytong on Dayre and wanted to try. Tears nearly came to my eyes when the familiar asian flavours touched my tongue……serious :”) 

  And due to recent #SICKTIMES I was forced to cook myself some porridge. Decided to go the tried and tested route and recreate it the way my grandma does (cos the first time my friend made me plain porridge and it tasted like nothing) 

  And my latest exploit! Fried rice made just this afternoon for lunch just cos I was so SICK of porridge (no pun intended) but too bad sick still need to feed my tumz so. It’s surprisingly easy leh!!!! If u don’t attempt to flip the rice in the pan like I did lulz…….pls don’t. ADD OYSTER SAUCE WHEN YOU FRY RICE PEOPLE IT MAKES A WORLD OF A DIFFERENCE. Who needs DTF FRIED RICE WHEN U CAN MAKE YOUR OWN!!!!’n hehehe
  This video just to show how windy it fking was when I went to do my laundry just now. 
OK GOODBYE
