Anxiety and Pressure

5 more days to BB Project submission.
6 more days to Birthday.
10 more days to MR Project submission.
21 more days to first exam paper.

October - I don't know to be excited, happy or depressed.

I didn't want to pin my hopes too high because I fear disappointments. Been having a lot of thoughts running through my mind. I wanted to talk to someone. But then again I thought maybe not. Everyone is so busy and caught up with their lives. Everyone is having as much a rough time as I. Perhaps I shouldn't bore them with mine. And so, I keep I keep I keep.

I just have to reassure myself again that everything is going to be fine. I just need to keep believing.

It's okay. Sometimes I don't even know what I want either. At one time I feel so enlightened and determined that I have let go of everything. And then at another time I felt that I am just deceiving myself, I have never ever once forget you. And then each time I felt like this, I will start listening to emo songs which is of no help at all. It just made me felt even worst. 

"Don't let him decide when you should move on" - today, right now I felt so enlightened again by this particular statement. 

It's only when I have let go by focusing on other distractions in life, that I will still have a chance to meet him again. And by  then, I will be happier without him in my life. It's better than letting him decide when I should move on, and each time I meet him, I will feel so sad that I probably won't even want to meet him anymore. And, that will make me even sadder.

Tough. But come to think of it, I already did it once. I can definitely do it again. And I am hoping, there won't be a third time. I am so tired. So so tired.

come on, be cool about it and let go of whatever feelings you have left.

他們猜我們後來有沒有再見 
離席了才會曉得懷念 突然我記起你的臉 
那觸動依然像昨天 對自己我終於也 
誠實了一點 

是不是回憶就是淡淡檸檬草
心酸裡又有芳香的味道 
曾以為你是全世界 
但那天已經好遙遠 繞一圈 
我才發現我有更遠地平線 

我們都沒錯 只是不適合 
我要的 我現在才懂得 
快樂是我的 不是你給的 
寂寞要自己負責 

畢竟用盡了力氣也未必如願 
總是要過去以後才了解 
突然我記起你的臉 
愛不愛不過一念之間 繞一圈
今天的我能和昨天面對面 

我們都沒錯 只是不適合 
親愛的 我當時不懂得 
選擇是我的 不是你給的 
明天自己負責 

給昨天的我一個擁抱 
曾經她不知如何是好 
若我們再見我會微笑 
謝謝你 謝謝你 我嚐過 愛的好 

我們都沒錯 只是不適合 
我要的 我現在才懂得 
快樂是我的 不是你給的
寂寞要自己負責 

我要的我現在才懂得
選擇是我的 不是你給的 
幸福要自己負責 錯過的 請你把握

Five & Dime

Dinner at one of my fave place yesterday! But still prefer the brunch menu thou. Been craving for it for like the longest time ever.


Earl Grey Chocolate Tart - was a total disappointment (meh!!!!)
No earl grey taste at all, felt so cheated. 

Anyway, love conversations with the girls. The topics that we talk about seriously, people will think that we are in our thirties man haha. It's hard to find friends who share the same thinking and understands what you are going through. I am glad that these girls are somehow different yet similar to me in a way. This bond that we have, I believe it will last for a lifetime (:

Happy 3 Friends

Post birthday celebration for B yesterday!

Brunch at Toby's Estate was awesomeeeeeeee! Totally love the food and the ambiance. I wanna go back there again to try the french toast and pancakes.




Had so much fun with the girls. Although we had such a hard time fixing a date to meet and there were some unhappiness here and there, I am glad nothing have changed each time we meet. All those crazy stuff we do HAHA damm epic. We practically had our own photoshoot session at Robertson Bridge with the help of Shirl's newly bought monopod hahaha. I had so much fun pressing the bluetooth shutter. 
It is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them

Trick of the eye

Starting with Tuesday blues this week. 

Anyway, had a fun filled long weekend! Celebrated Ah Hong's birthday on Saturday. Wanted to brunch at NOM Bistro & Bakery but unfortunately it was closed for a private event :( Anxiously searched around for another cafe nearby but there wasn't really any cafes around Macpherson area. In the end we took a cab to Cafe Melba. The weather is such a killer that afternoon and luckily we were seated in an area with like 3 to 4 fans blowing at us. Luckily the food wasn't that bad either. 

After which, we headed down to Maple & Market for some really nice cakes and super yummy waffles. 






And we visited Trickeye Museum during the night! It was really small as compared to the one in Korea. But still, we managed to have a lot of fun together snapping away. The art pieces were not really very friendly and we ended up with many bruises on our legs! :(



















The name Trick Eye is short for ‘Trick of the Eye’ which refers to an art technique that turns two-dimensional paintings into three-dimensional images through the use of optical illusions. Although its history dates back to ancient Greece and Rome, the arty term Trompe-l’oeil (French for deceive the eye) only came into use during the Baroque period.
