Despacito

I’m so scared that I’ll lose you. I’m so scared that I’d do something that would annoy you. But what is love really? Shouldn’t it be a relationship whereby I’m able to be myself infront of you and not be scared of anything. But then again you start to be scared of losing something when you treasure it a lot. So I’m right, right? Right that you’re not temporary, right that you are everything that they were not, and that’s why we will definitely work out not for the short term but for the long term. I thought it would take alot for me to fall for someone again but you just make it so easy. I’m just so reassured by you every time you tell me miss me, that you want me there with you right there and then. It makes me feel as though you actually want me, that it’s not all in my head. I can’t help but smile and sigh to myself whenever I see and ask myself if everything that happened was meant for this. I love how we can just cuddle all day and I feel so safe in your embrace. I love how you just enjoy sleeping naked together and don’t expect much from me. I love how I always catch you looking at me and you just shrug it off as though it’s a given to do so. I love how straightforward you are with your feelings band not make me doubt your actions. I love how you appreciate intimacy as much as I do, showering together, hugging on the escalator, in the lift, in the cinema. Not just making out but long tender kisses with lingering eye contact and eskimo kisses. That moment where we align our foreheads and everything just seem to be in place, babe are you feeling this too? It feels as though we’ve known each other for pretty long when in actual fact it has only been about 3 months. I wonder if you think about us as often as I do. You tell me that you hope you don’t get too attached to me but in actual fact I’m afraid of telling you how much I’m attached to you already because I’m scared that I would scare you away. I want to be sure of us, i want to be sure of my feelings, i want to be sure of your feelings. I want there to be an us in the future, i want there to be a me in your future, i want there to be a you in my future. I really don’t know how this will end up but I’m sure of one thing, you are important to me and I’ve surpassed the point where i can bear to lose you.

Halfway through with 2017.

It’s already nearing the end of May. Time is really ‘speedy-ing’ its way through 2017 and it’s starting to get more difficult to juggle between work, having a life and maintaining your relationships. Started work at a commercial lab about a month ago and things seem to be going pretty ok apart from the fact that the pay is pathetically little. Haven’t been dancing in a long while though so life’s pretty meh and mundane. Firstly, am pretty broke and secondly it’s so damn tiring after work already. Kudos to those people who are able to go and gym after work or even better still wake up early to run.

Figured I needed an update in my life as this year is passing ridiculously fast. Went on two trips before my graduation this year and now that I’m back, I already can’t wait to go on another trip again.

Taiwan was da bomb with the non stop eating, and shopping alongside with its beautiful scenery and beautiful weather. My hair was totally digging the climate man, zero maintenance needed. We went to both Taipei and Taichung and it was kind of stress planning the whole trip on my own (which I eventually fucked up because I missed my flight back), but it was definitely a lesson that I wouldn’t forget. I want to bring my mum to another country next. Perhaps next year or so? Really should look into buying a savings plan.

Australia was just as beautiful, with a more chill vibe. Food was relatively on the pricier side, but beer was cheap af. And again, the weather was perfect for my hair apart from the freezing temperatures in the early mornings which I so fortunately got to experience. My teeth were chattering in the 10d.c cold, how am I going to stand snow in Korea like this? Two ticks off my bucket list as I got my first tattoo done and skydived down the great ocean road. Heck both were one hell of an experience and really no regrets man.

Big thanks to my best friend, Winnie for tagging along with me on this trip (even though you can be so blur and overly attached at times). Makes a big difference that you were there with me and cheers to many more trips together again.

Mid Feb. Valentine

I managed to reshuffle my schedule to revisit Adventure Cove the other day and honestly it did no give me enough thrill. Yes it was pretty fun and all, but amidst all the queues and crowds, it took too long to ride the most adrenaline pumping ride and the other rides were pretty mundane as compared to it. Spent majority of my time in the wave pool and the lazy river (with a life vest of course since I can’t swim for nuts). Loving the bikini I got from Taobao though, should put it more to good use and perhaps bring it when I go overseas.

(Some shameless photo-shoot going on) 😅

So it was February 14th yesterday, Happy Valentine’s Day! My day was well spent, with lots of good food (going to get fat at this rate). Thank you to Winnie too for the wonderful dinner and company. ☺️

Finally a break from everything. I have been so looking forward to Chinese New Year despite the fact that I barely had any time to even shop for my new year clothes. That aside, Chinese New Year this year was pretty good with a few spontaneity here and there. I am really digging the whole off shoulder thing with my new skirts and I seriously need to do them justice and find more chances to actually dress up and wear them throughout the year. After this, I has 2 more tests, 1 final exam and my final FYP presentation to over come. Just need to nail the presentation and pass the rest (pretty screwed up priorities yes I know), but hey come on give me a break I’m so damn done with studying. 😅

Yes that’s colourpop ultra matte lip in ‘Viper’ on me and I’m digging my blue-ish grey contacts which I may be too lazy to wear in the future. 🙂 Anyways, just a quick update on how far I am from graduating. I really need start wrapping up my Taiwan trip plans and make my final bookings fast. After this trip, I swear I’m going to be so broke my bank account will be of negative value. Do you see why I desperately need to work part time to save my sorry ass now? All’s well at work now though, bosses are damn nice, working environment is good too. I should be working there until I find a solid job, perhaps around May?

Till then,

2017

A long overdue post indeed, time just really flies doesn’t it? Ended 2016 with a bang at wavehouse and it has indeed been a fulfilling night. I can’t believe that I’m turning 20 this year, seems like an age where I should know my shit but how much of it do I really? That aside, did my annual ritual to check out my 2017 Libra horoscope and here’s what it said.

If you are single, then this is your year to find love, Cupid’s arrow could strike you at any moment but give yourself plenty of time when considering commitment with someone you have just met. It would be good to plan out your budget wisely and increase your assets(savings and investments) as well as the money you have on call on a daily basis. You should be in line for a pay increase, a better paying position or else a new source of income will open up for you. As far as your work goes, you can take a chance and make a calculated risk. This could be around setting up your own business and taking a punt on your own talents or else having the courage and the confidence to aim for that job that may not just be one step up the ladder but several rungs above where you currently stand.

Anyways back to this, I decided to chop my hair off back in December and although I’m digging my new hairstyle I kind of miss my long hair at times. It’s scary how I have less than 2 months to end of polytechnic, and less than 5 months till I start working. As of now, I’m not even asking for much. Please just let me graduate with ease in May and find a decent paying job to get me started. I have so many things to save up for and not to mention I have to start paying back my school fees since I used CPF to pay.

We’ll see where 2017 takes us and I really hope to achieve more things this year. Yes I know, cliché to post your resolutions but hey there’s no harm in it.

  • Accomplish at least 3 things I have never done before
  • Learn a new language and stick through with it
  • Fall in love without fear.

Here we go again. I’m ready for you 2017.

25 more days./

It’s the last day of October already. School has started, and it’s so surreal that I’m graduating after this last Semester to go. At this point I really ain’t giving two shits about my GPA anymore, I’m satisfied as long as I graduate with a GPA of 3.0. I often wonder how much of all this am I really even gonna use eventually, only time will tell I guess. I honestly can’t imagine myself working in a research lab anymore after the experience from my intern. Let’s just make the most out of this last Semester and enjoy the thereafter. Speaking of which, am in dire need to work to contribute to my graduation trip funds. I need to pay for my dance classes too, and costumes what not. Bless my soul :\ If only a wad of cash would drop from the sky for my right now. November, production month, I sure as hell ain’t ready for it yet. Consistently reminding myself for what am I even doing this for when every time I consistently feel so beaten down. Dance not to impress, but for someone to remember you. Slow progress is better than no progress, believe in your craft. Do your best in everything from now on, otherwise it would just be a waste of time, be it dance or not.

The consistent heaviness on my heart is taking a toll on me. I feel so suffocated yet at the same time it’s best to just stick to the status’ quo. I don’t want to disturb your life. I shall just continue with watching you from the sides. I hope I get over this real soon.

25 more days, leggo!

Reflection

It has been 3 years since I started dancing, yes there were improvements made or what not but I feel like I have been progressing too slow in terms of dance capability. I’ve seen people get to where I am or even better than where I am at now, in a much shorter period of time and I often wondered what was it that I was doing wrong? Why is it that I’m not progressing as much and as fast as I would like to. I pride myself as a hip-hop dancer but recently I feel like I have been losing the essence of it. I am planning torevisit  my basics and seriously get down to the drill of it be it groove, isolations or what not. 5 months from now and let’s see what I end up with.

No excuses, no laziness, no procrastination. Hardwork is key in this, amidst all the hunger for improvement, constantly remind yourself with the fun and joy you feel when you dance.

I believe in you, you have your friends who believe in you too. Let’s do this!
