Daily Gratitude 16-20

#16 Animals
I love Xiao Bai too much. Eeyore is considered as an animal too, right?

#17 Memories
Lately with all the travelling talk, be it Parry’s flight to Brisbane for studies or my upcoming holiday trip to Bangkok with The Boy), it kinda make me miss my previous travels.

#18 Something New
I am NEVER good at keeping an organiser. Mainly because I get lazy easily. Way too easily.

#19 Best Friend
But if you define ‘Best Friend’ as someone who knows the nastiest habits of mine, telepathically on line with me, loves me for who I am without judgement, then yes, this is mine.

#20 Seasonal
Singapore is that little red dot with summer all around. The past two days have been rainy, but it started scorching hot today. What’s new?

It’s scary how this week has gone! Oh. Em. Gee. But I’m glad that July is sneaking to an end. One last batch before this Gratitude challenge ends and a whole new month of challenges awaits!

Daily Gratitude 11-15

#11 Something Old
This pair of cat and dog were gifted to brother and me when we were still kids. We fought over it and with it too.

#12 Hands
“Take my hand tonight, let’s not think about tomorrow.”

#13 Written Words
Despite all that, I never regretted any seconds and moments. After all, they played a part to create the chapters I’m living today.

#14 Movement
The journey to (long waiting and) meet up with The Boy was different this night.

#15 Technology
For someone with motion sickness, my ways of surviving a long bus journey or plane ride are sitting still and zone out the external world with music.

This batch’s challenge ended off with a little emotional feeling. From the stashed memories to death of Glee star Cory Monteith. Life is too short for regrets, everyday’s gratitude has further proven its importance.

Daily Gratitude 06-10

#06 Books
I’m such a fickle minded. I am halfway through Puppy Love and slightly after introduction of Beautiful Boy. AND, I have three more books waiting on shelf (that white envelope contains two thin ones).

#07 Something Funny
Being as idealess as I can be, my initial idea was to have us pose with our funny expressions. Then, the evil side of me thought it will be a better fit to the theme to have him doing hand-stand. Who knew, he think out of the box and presented this – hand while standing.

#08 Favourite Colour
I’m quite an earthy (or what Z will say, boring) person. I own more black top than any other colours, but blue is still my crush even after so long.

#09 Inspiring Person
She is one of the loved ones who inspired me. ♥

#10 Nature
You can’t hear it, but the sound of birds returning to their nest makes me feel less lonely.

This batch’s topics were a little tougher than the last, but it was still a fun to do. I love how The Boy surprises me with his unusual thoughts once again.

Daily Gratitude 01-05

During one of the almost-daily Pinterest surfing, I came across this pin originated from Positively Present.

I thought it would make a good Project Of The Month and WhatsApp-ed Intan right away. Who knew, she decided she couldn’t commit to the daily affair on the first day of July, and had signed up for another project instead (can’t wait to share it here!). Thanks lorh.

#01 Favourite Food
It’s really tough to pick one, but if I have to, the favourite of my favourites would be this fishball mee tai bak selectively from this stall at Amoy Street Food Centre. The chilli this stall has is to die for (in my case)!

#02 Smile
I have great accommodating friends.

#03 Happiness
One of the few happiness in recent days is to know I have a manja king at home. Sometimes it’s good to feel needed.

#04 Leaves
This green has been in the office even before I join the company. It had lost some of its buddies along the way. Hopefully it’ll be continue to be strong so it can move to the new office with us.

#05 Morning Sky
Gloomy cooling morning. I should be in bed sleeping and not to work. D:

I almost failed on second day, but I am thankful for the spontaneous help from the gang, though they are still wondering why I needed to take a shot with them smiling brightly. Heh.

Instagram Loves (June)

Nonya Assam Fish // A pot of appetite tickling goodness

红豆碱水粽 (Jian shui zong with red bean)

62 // Throat-burning curry date

Ready to burn our lips, tongue, stomach, intestines (and maybe ass)!

Xiao Bai is still willing to walk for bun.

Beautiful Boy // Ice Tea // Gion (The red bean is insanely good!)

“I don’t mind turn for head rest. And what do you mean by sore neck?”

And with that, it marks the farewell to first half of the year. Time flies, especially when you are getting older. So true.

This month has been a fast pace one as well. Instagram has came up with their own video function, pretty similar to Vine except it takes slightly longer recording. I’ve been experimenting with VSCOcam app on iPhone, the preset effects are awesome. I still need to work on allocating the perfect preset to the right mood though. Heh.

July and August will be an exciting ones, since I already have Project Of The Month pinned on them. But we’ll talk about them when the time comes.

Have fun reminiscing the time lost in the past six months!

Instragram Loves (May)

Waiting to change the dressing. I wonder if it will bring the female out of The Boy. Heh.

En Qi’s 4th birthday – House of (Overdose) Sweetness

Breakfast for / the sick / the insane

Apparently cake can not only be baked, but cooked as well.

Finally, an al dante Aglio Olio by The Boy, which I don’t have to pay to eat. Heh.

Au Chocolat Tower Cake | The Boy told me to get another one for myself after his first bite. Madness.

May wasn’t being too friendly with me this year. I have been visiting doctors every start of the week (eh, not chao keng ok) and all the medications took the worst out of me. Well, that is finally over, thank goodness.

And can you believe the year is nearly half way there!? I felt as if January just started yesterday. This is bad news.

Instagram Loves (April)

The Boy take one big plate, but only four slices of small salmon sashimi. *okayguy*

Man-made flop. He enjoyed it for a good ten minutes before getting back up though.

Indonesian cuisine.

Taking a super long time to finish up this book. (I’m only halfway there.) I love the content so far, but it doesn’t made the hopeless-romance of me crave to read.

Had THE awesome Crispy Chicken Bryani for lunch. Satisfied stomach is satisfied.

Feet warmer.

Oh~ My Baby Crepe~

This April has been a super fast moving one. I guess partly it’s all the preparation for the 5 years anniversary surprises and the kick start of The Boy’s internship.

May is gonna be a mugging one. Too fast, honey, too fast.
