It has been difficult for me to update as I’m constantly on the move. plus, I can’t transfer my photos to the com so it is another reason to procrastinate =/

so far I’ve been really enjoying the holiday but I did not realize that road trips are so tiring! glad that we are now currently settled for 3 nights before moving again.

the sights that I’ve seen, is not easily forgettable. till the next time and hope everyone is doing fine! xo

Leaving on a jet plane (again).

leave a comment »

This time round, I’ll be going to Europe for a graduation trip with the classmates. It will be my first time there, and I am VERY excited. At the same time, feeling a bit apprehensive because everyone keep saying that it’s really dangerous over there. I guess I just have to keep my fingers crossed.

I’ll miss Singapore, my family and my boyfriend. This is the first time we will be apart for so long (we counted, 13 days) since we usually meet every day if the both of us are in SG 😦 But, absence makes the heart fonder and I’m glad that we are able to meet in Amsterdam instead of not seeing each other for the whole trip!

every place I go, I think of you…every song I sing, I sing for you…

SO……….I went to dye my hair yesterday. This was my previous color.


and ta-da!

I look even more Korean now hehe 😉

In the past year, I’ve spent 4-digit figure on my hair and I resolve not to spend that much anymore! Wish me luck, xo.

I had the most delightful last 3 days, albeit feeling a little tired because I was too used to slacking at home.

Caught 3 movies, one per day. (1) Smurfs, (2) Johnny English Reborn, (3) Crazy Stupid Love.

Johnny English was SO FUNNY! I missed my movie watching days. Wished T and I would have more time for dating. boos 😦


Got sunburnt from cycling at East Coast Park today. OUCH.

BKK Part 2

Day 4

Wearing my new tshirt I got from DailyFresh and it says ‘Fat people are harder to kidnap.’. I wished they had added a ‘yo’ for effect haha!

I went to Pratunam Market which was near Platinum Shopping mall. The items there are cheaper, but usually they require you to buy 3 items and above to get the wholesale price. Not a good idea to go alone, unless you are hardcore like me, can buy 3 pieces of the same design in different colours. FOR MYSELF 😛

Decided to rest my feet at Tom N Toms Coffee and have a late lunch.

Travelling alone has made me grown to LOVE coffee places, in particular Starbucks. Sometimes when I don’t know where to go, and I do not want to be back in the hotel room (again!), I would just find a corner, order a java chip and chill. I feel sheltered from the rest of the world, and their music is strangely calming.

I was reading the poster where it explained where it explained the word expresso come from. I cringe my nose, because I think that expresso sucks. Then it occurred to me that I don’t even remember how expresso taste like! SIGH. I wish I would stop being so judgmental.

Because it was our last dinner, T decided to bring me somewhere special where he claims has the most awesome fried curry crab in BKK.

Look at the massive amount of food ordered and we finished everything! Except for a bit of the oyster. Too many oysters =  NOT good for the body 😡

Somboon Seafood, Thailand.

Check out tripadvisor for more reviews!

Day 5

top: forever21, outerwear & shorts: Platinum Mall, headband: MBK

Because we have to check out at 130pm, I didn’t have time for anything else except to do my nails and grab some snacks for family.

Found this awesome place to do nails at cheap prices! My nail art post is here.

To get here, go to the second floor and exit to another building. Or like me, ask around till you find the place. There are two places to do nails, and mine is done at Pinky Nails, which is the second store.

One funny thing is the first time I went there, the manicurist mistaken me as a Korean. And the second time I went there, their customer spoke to me in JAPANESE and she is a Thai! My manicurist was laughing at me la, say that I don’t look Singaporean at all LOL.

And, just the day before, a Korean spoke to me in Korean. o.0 I shall graciously accept all compliments, since Korean girls are pretty (think SNSD). an-yung! xx

BKK Part 1

leave a comment »

This trip creeped up on me.I didn’t even know I was going anywhere until a few days ago, T mentioned something about having to go BKK and then all of a sudden tickets are booked because since I have nothing on, I might as well tag along. right? Not a really good idea actually, because I had limited $$ due to the upcoming Europe trip. Still I enjoyed myself by relaxing.

Day 1 + 2

This was my first time taking Thai Airways, and frankly they scared the shit out of me. The landing and taking off, omg *shakes head* Plus, we checked in at Terminal 1 instead of the usual Terminal 3 boos.

But oh well, in BKK safe and sound! Rested for a while before heading for dinner with my classmate who just so happened to be there as well. The next few days were spent alone. After all, T was supposed to be on a business trip. I went to do my nails, because I wanted something to last for a few days before going back to do a new design for back to sg hehe…

After having done my nails at MBK, I headed to Platinum. Like where else to shop in BKK? Even the locals shop here!

I love red mango. It was $3 instead of $5 in SG, but that’s because they gave cheapo cereal instead of granola. Oh well, it was a pretty good place to chill and rest my feet.

Soon after, I headed back and we had dinner at the IT mall near the hotel.

 I was so effing happy that I finally got to have my pineapple fried rice! It has been such a long time because I just can’t seem to find it in SG anymore.

poor people stuck in jams rushing home. 

Day 3

I didn’t bother dressing up because I didn’t want to attract unnecessary attention. I also spilt my $$ into different sections just in case ya know. 8)

Expensive massage offered at the hotel. 700baht/hr! I went to Urban Retreat at Asoke Station instead, and it was only 350baht/hr for head and shoulder massage. Still slightly more expensive by BKK’s standards but the ambience’s really nice. Feeling sad that I did only ONE massage 😦

 We had dinner at the same place because we are boring. ha! this meal costs around 400+baht. cheap!

Flowery headbands are all the rage now, and so I got myself a few too. How to resist since they are so cute?! Also because I have a thing for hair accessories ❤

back from bkk!

No, this post is not about BKK, because I am incredibly slow in sorting photos and uploading them heh 😉

And no, I did not wear that to BKK, I just felt like posting photos of myself because I haven’t done that for a few posts now *sheepish*

Top: H&M, Necklace: Tiffany&Co, Hairband: BKK 

Finally some photos that I am eager to post are of the nail art I did in BKK. It’s so cheap!

This star-design only costs 150baht which is sgd$6! Awesome right. Went back on the last day to do my toes and a new design for hands.

The apple is SO CUTE! *wiggles toes* and my rose french tips. sigh, life IS really good.
