Hello 2017

Wow haven't visited this page for a year or so.
And so much has changed ever since.
Is it time for a self reflection/ recap post?

Let's go through what happened in 2016


Countdown @ Taipei 101 with my favourite people!

Flew alone for the first time to a foreign country for a design conference (Thanks BDA)!
but there were colleagues and friends there to look after me so it wasn't a solo trip yet.

Celebrated CNY with an additional member!
Helped Madeline to take care of Momo while her and her family spend their CNY @ Malaysia.
It's also a great factor as to why I'm having Maomao now :')


When 93sSquad got really close and went for shoots almost weekly! 

I also applied for University Admission in Design Comm which I didn't got in.
I felt a bit defeated when I received the news but hey I gotta be positive.
Maybe the door didn't open up for me because it wasn't meant for me.
Later I found out that the rejection wasn't trying to imply that I'm not good at what I'm doing.
But it's just the work that I'm producing are already the industry standard. Well...

Up till today, I'm still glad that I wasn't accepted because I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing now! :')


Went for my first gig - Of Monsters and Men! 

At the point of time, I was feeling really exhausted from work and trying to figure out life
(the time when I was rejected from uni). I was deciding to go on a solo travel journey but something came along the way...


I've decided to add a new member to my family *_*
Which mummy finally allowed!!!
Because of how cute Momo was when we took care of him during CNY hehehe
That's where my budget for my initial solo trip went to hahahah but it's WORTH IT

Made an awesome group of friends in the doggy circle, sharing and exchanging tips and tricks which I learnt a lot about to take care of Maomao!
My lifetime commitment :')
I'll always try to give her the best that I can afford within my means.


My first travel of the year(!!!!) You have no idea how long I've been waiting for this trip to happen.
My second time @ Hong Fucking Kong!!!! Absolutely ADORE this city, wouldn't mind coming back every year! Awesome company as well.
And it was also during at the time He made me super upset and disgusted


My first ever trip with my BFF!!! *_*
We went on a hiking trip as well. I freaking love the feeling when you're on top of a mountain.
Hiking will always be something I wanna do every year. How I wish Singapore have mountains to hike hahahah


The 93sSquad decided to try our luck at joining the #MTVBigPass contest.
Had a idea, came to my house and started shooting away. I did the edit!

Which turned our life upside down!

First event that we attended: RockAway Festival @ KL!!!


And just 1 week later, WE WENT FOR THE BEST PARTY EVER, IT'S THE SHIP 2016
This video shall be a proof of our youth! 10 years down the road, I bet I'll fucking miss all of these

Let bygones be bygones.

Our 3rd leg: Neonlights Festival!
But on Day 1, I had to attend Tracy's wedding :)
So happy for her!!! *_*

And there, end of year turned out to be pretty havoc and awesome!

Ended the last few days of the year with awesome friends *_*
Wouldn't want it any other way.
I'm way happier now!

Goodbye, you :')
I need time to replace what I gave away

I will buck up and improve on myself. Figure out what I want in life!
Be a better friend, sister, daughter.

Taken at Gardens By The Bay


The month of December is always so eventful for me!
A joyful and festive month :) I love it! Well who doesn't? 
The joy(and headache) of buying gifts and planning for xmas parties etc... 
Plus I've got 3 close friends whose birthday also falls in the month of December! 
So my pocket has already burnt a big hole... hahaha

#1 BDA @ ZOUK - 4th December
First time partying with my colleagues hahahaha
It was also Jiayin's first time to the club!!! 
When it's time to go home, I realised that I'm the only one living in the North side. 
So I called Anthony to go home with me, interrupting his drinking session :p

#2 XIAO GRACE'S 21st - 5th December
It's a bad idea to party the night before and waking up early in the morning... 
Woke up from my 3 hours worth of sleep and head out to meet the girls to go JB! 
JB cafehopping is the new hipster thing to do now? 
The food is so awesome and the price is even more awesome for us Singaporeans hahaha

We went to The Replacement for our first stop for brunch!
They are actually known for their Churros with salted egg yolk dip but to our disappointment, it was sold out by the time we reach.
Mind you, it was only around 12pm. So if you want to try it, come early in the morning!
So in the end, we ordered 4 mains with 1 dessert which is the churros with chocolate dip

White-washed interior with marble tiles

The French Toast is the best dish I've tried at this cafe! 

Next up, we went to the Chaiwalla & Co. It's a container cafe, quite cool!
Steph and ys got some drinks and we shared.

hello from the other side hahahah
Trying very hard to get a pic in the rain

Third stop: HIAP JOO BAKERY for their banana cakes!!!
My colleague always buy us the banana whenever he visits JB and it's so good.
Many people were queueing just to buy some banana cakes and everybody comes out of the shop with multiple plastic bags and it's slightly bulky! Because they can't close the plastic box as the cakes were freshly baked out from the oven and immediately passed to the customer. So to prevent the cake from becoming soggy, we had to carry it with the box opened. hahaha look like kiasu Singaporeans, buy so much at one go.

Last stop would be to do some shopping at City Square and the new mall beside it, Komtar! 
We were all in awe like how things can be so much cheaper than in Singapore. Esp Watsons!!!
Next time always go JB to stock up on cosmetics and etc :p 

Went back to Singapore around 4pm and the queue wasn't as bad as in the morning! yay! 
Our first stop in Singapore: HOMERUN BASEBALL!
It was fun when you managed to hit the ball but so demoralising when you kept missing it LOL 

HAPPY 21st XIAO GRACE!!! ^_^

#3 XMAS PARTY @ BDA - 8th December
Our xmas secret santa gift exchg was super early as many of us will be taking leave way before Christmas so it was pushed forward! 
Dinner was a sumptuous buffet at The Line @ Shangri-la!!! I drool at the sight of food. 

My first time placing a present under a xmas tree LOL

All the presents!!!
My secret santa was Tracy hehe she got me a Stila eyeshadow palette :) 

#4 XMAS GREETING SHOOT @ BDA - 11th December
hahahaha we were all decked in our ugly xmas sweater and all that fancy accessories!!! 
Decorated the pantry area for our set. The concept was to film a 60's xmas tv show! 

Here's the outcome!!! Super love it hahahah done by me (partially).

So we decided to go semb park to bbq hahaha and camping illegally LOL 
"NO CAMPING" signs were everywhere so we didn't dare to set up the tent early hahaha 

Went to ys house on the 19th morning to bake our cakes :p 
The rainbow mixture!

The outcome of the interior of the cake!!! Looks good hahaha

Setting up the tent at ard 1am LOL took us quite awhile!!!
