A week ago, I was in Krabi with the best travel mates.. Enjoying our Thai food dinner, basking and chatting under the starry night, and sleeping soundly in a beautiful beach resort. Fast forward a week later, here I am in my room preparing for work tomorrow. BAM!
Nonetheless, it’s been a fruitful day/week so far. Here’s a snapshot of the past week for me!
Stared hard at my tan, and even mommy commented that I look like a real Thai now. Anyhow, I still decided to dress in coral red to drive the Monday blues away. And the blues really got to me, especially having just returned from an ultimate Krabi getaway. Pouts*
That aside, I realised taking photos of WIWT daily really helps me to put in extra effort in dressing up! I used to be lazy, and would just grab any top/bottom from the wardrobe, but now I take time to make sure that I mix and match my wardrobe pieces. Mommy also commented that it helps me to avoid using the excuse, “I have no clothes to wear!“, when I actually do have new pieces -___- lol.

Impromptu meet-up with my sis after work, and we decided to catch dinner together as well at Carl’s Jr. Seriously, two set meals cost us S$23++ -________- I really think it’s a little too pricey for fast food, haha.
Good chat with her as always Am always thankful for the close relationship that my sister and I have, XOXO.
Check out her cute METAL teeth!
Then, we went shopping for a while, and landed ourselves in shoe shopping! Two pairs of shoes for S$30 from Rubi! I love the cap toe design, while she loves her blue loafers. Happykiddosplease! The promotion is still ongoing I believe, but one thing about shoe sales – sizes usually run really big or small (think Size 39 – 41, and 35 – 36).
A long Tuesday packed with work, and new roles added to the current job scope. It’s getting overwhelming for me, and I’m having thoughts/intentions of speaking to relevant parties about it. No point adding on workload to my current pile, as it would only decrease effectiveness and efficiency, right? Nonetheless, I am still trying my best to remain positive about this.

Before the movie “Prometheus”, we had a quick dinner at Wadori (Jurong Point)! My order was Set B, and it’s priced at S$5.20 (iirc) with Chicken Karage, Grilled Pork Belly, Grilled Chicken, and Chicken Balls, and rice. Though the food wasn’t too bad, I still very much prefer Tori-Q over this

Walked into the movie theater without much expectation or knowledge of this movie, I only knew that there’s some aliens involved in the storyline and there’s a mixed reviews about it. I must say some parts were pretty gore, and we had to cover the screen at a few scenes. LOL! Still, the effects were awesome and it definitely got us glued to the screen for the whole two hours. Interesting story-line, and definitely worth to give it a go!

My first time wearing this skirt out! It’s a real comfy piece, albeit a little too long on me. Loving the design and the drapes! Gonna wear it out more often now
Quite a bad mid-week, but I remembered the tweets and texts from lovelies got me through the day… A drained day summed it all up. Then, YT shared this piece with a few peeps on Instagram, and I thought it really hit the nail on the head!
To be honest, (here goes the guilt trip) I haven’t been hard-working with my running regime and the last I really had a good run was actually Sundown! Ok now I’m even guiltier, haha. Though we did some sports (hiking, trekking, and a little bit of swimming) in Krabi, I seriously miss my running! Shall put on the running shoes this weekend, and start the regime proper. The Twitter babes really helped too, with their posts of run logs, and it works a hell hard to motivate me. SHAPE RUN in one month’s time yo!
On Parent Care leave yesterday ‘cos no one else was available (work commitments) to accompany my mom for her follow-up check-up, so I could dress down a little bit yesterday. I took two old pieces from my wardrobe, and pieced them together in time for this season’s trend! Heh, I love how versatile these two pieces are, and certainly peplum is the way to go now! I also brought out my ‘new’ ASOS clutch for the first time loving the design, and check out how roomy it is! I’ve brought out my card wallet, wallet, toiletries pouch, mini water pottle, TBS comb, and my phone… yet, it’s still easy to carry around and chic too. Yay!
Everything turned out to be ok, and I also had an impromptu check-up as well. FYI, my mom went for her check-up with her gynae whom she’s been with for the last 25 years. It felt pretty weird to meet the doctor who delivered you, I must say! LOL.
Dr. Kowa is very experienced, and a couple of my relatives have been referred to him for medical advice related to women’s issues. Here’re his details, if you’re interested hope it helps!

After the check-up, I decided to give my mom a proper meal treat ‘cos I realised I haven’t really done so yet. -________- We settled on Domani (an Italian restaurant situated in Ngee Ann City, it used to be called The Pasta Cafe) ‘cos their lunch special is really worth it and how many opportunities can one (working) person have to enjoy a weekday lunch promotion? Heh.

We both ordered the same set – Petit Platter; this is what its website states – Petit Platter : Spaghetti with shrimp, clam and squid in tomato cream sauce. Caesar salad and salami, baked tilapia fish and shimeji mushroom with spicy mango sauce, bacon wrapped caprese with balsamic vinegar sauce. Delish pasta, and this dish allowed us to sample different sides with the pasta! The set meal comes with Potato Soup and drinks, which we chose its aromatic House Coffee.
Given the amount of food and its quality, I must say S$15.90++ per meal is reasonable. And, the service was good so that topped it up!

My new Longchamp LM Metal Medium Short Handle Tote in Petrol! All prices for Le Pilage and Metal bags have gone down in Singapore now. This costs S$174, and it was retailing at about S$210! Whee was contemplating between this and the Le Pilage medium tote in Fuchsia, but I thought this piece looks better and I have enough Le Pilage totes already. Sis is going to get her Le Pilage bag-pack tomorrow, double yays. Offer while stocks last, so hurry down! FYI, I purchased mine from Paragon outlet; they only have Petrol available for LM Metal totes, and more of classic colours only for Le Pilage.
Carted out this piece during the recent SMooch sales! I was in a dilemma over this or the orange peplum shorts, but decided to get this ‘more versatile’ piece instead. The material is luxe, and I love the matching belt that came together with it! It fits nicely on me, but I think it’s not buffet/heavy-meal friendly ‘cos it can show the tummy pretty obviously. Other than that, it’s definitely a steal at S$20.80 /grins.
Anyways, I had a good chat with my mommy over lunch yesterday. Though we’re really close, but I hardly share anything from work or personal life with my family members ‘cos I always think that they’re busy and/or have their own share of woes. To me, if it’s something that I can stomach on my own, I’ll leave it just like that and not bother them. But yesterday, I bared my heart all out to her, and I took her by surprise. LOL! I shared with her quite a lot of things relating to Stan and work. It’s not easy, really not easy… But I’m so glad that we took this chance to have this talk, and cleared the air about lotsa stuff :’) Thank you dear Momsy, she’s my pillar of strength and always will be.
That sums up a super duper long entry so happy to clear this draft post. It took me a few nights, and one early morning T.T Heh! TGIF dear peeps! Can’t wait to get through (hell) work day and usher in the weekends First up, dinner with my bestfs from work tonight.
