Ready, Get Set, SPLURGE.

So I’ve been feeling a little down these past few days and decided I needed a good cheer up. This is one of the things I do when my semester is going to end and I’m preparing to go back to part-time work.

I splurge.

Somehow for the past year or so, I’ve gotten into this bad habit . School would wear me out so much that I’d get so tired and depressed, I need to spend my stress away. Last semester, I signed two packages immediately after my mains were over, costing me a whooping SGD1.2k and forcing me to work my butt off during my long holiday. Well, this month was a little different. This month, I splurged-just not as much-.

Splurging came early this time round. I actually bought my loots at the beginning of the month but was far too guilty to write anything because I felt like such an undisciplined brat who didn’t know how to manage her money. I caved. I get it.

This post has also been queued, because I couldn’t wait to write about my shopping spree either.

I suck. I know.

MOVING ON.

I started out big, buying a white gold chain and rose gold with blue topaz(my birth-stone) pendant. The chain and pendant were sold separately so you can imagine the hole it burned in my pocket. Why all of the sudden? I’ve never been the type to go crazy over jewelry, I still am not. It’s just that I’ve always wanted my own pieces of gold to wear. It made me feel more… ladylike? More like a woman. A lady should always have her own jewelry. At least that’s what I feel, and I finally have it! So pleased with myself.

Random Outfit of the day picture.

Fun fact, this was the outfit I was going to wear to when I was supposed to meet the mysterious Taiwan Boy my dad hoped I would like (in other words, like enough to marry in time for a September wedding). He couldn’t come to Singapore because of his university exams. Not fated. More good news for me, I guess. I’m no where near ready.

I did my nails too. Decided to go for a white on teal french tip. My manicurist then didn’t exactly do a good job. The tips are already starting to chip so I might need to go back there again soon.

When I have the time. Because you know, I’m an office lady and all that jazz.

DUM DUM DUM. 

What else is in your bag, Cherie? Or should I say, shopping bag. The above picture was taken in a Bose flagship store at Millenia Walk. It was then that I decided I needed a pair of headphones. The headphones and earpieces people bought for me just weren’t doing it for me anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the fact that people buy me things I like or have interest in, it’s just that I have certain preferences towards my gadgets and would rather get them myself.

Here’s an unlisted video of the unboxing of my Marshalls Headphones. I’ve been eyeing this pair for a while now and am elated that I can finally get my hands on it.

I attempted to video the unboxing like those Japanese popping cooking videos, where there is no one talking and all you hear is the unwrapping and opening of wrappers and tapping of cardboard on a table. I get some weird sort of satisfaction of all that. I also noticed that the video kind of cuts off at the end. Originally, this video was meant to be uploaded onto Instagram as  an Instavideo but I accidentally deleted it and Instagram doesn’t allow me to re-upload the video because ‘video format is not supported’.

What is this nonsense?

Urgh.

Alrighty, better get going.

Part-time job, here I come again!

Clockwatching – Jason Mraz

 

Take off, both your, shoes and clothes, I’ll follow.
Undo, corkscrew, drink from the top of a broken bottle.
Lately we’re running out of time, aren’t we?

Smoking, often, and calling out our guilty pleasures,
Let’s keep, talking, anything to stop clockwatching.
Lately we’re running out of time, aren’t we?
Crazy for running all the time, m-m-m-m-maybe.
Let’s forget we’re running out of time.

I’m off like an airplane,
I’m licking your postage stamp again.
I’m using my right brain and I’m praying that we don’t crash.
Who knew I’d cum so fast.
Well so what if a two pump chump can’t last.

But I made it to three, and I foreclose a five minute, fantasy.
On a short-lived flight, making love on economy
No jumping, conclusions,
I don’t think there’s no solution,
Let’s get, backwards,
And forget our restless destination.

Let’s live in this moment just this time, could we?
Just take one moment of our time m-m-m-m-maybe.
Let’s forget we running out of time.

I’m off like an airplane,
I’m catching my second wind again.
I’m using my left brain
And I’m righting all my wrongs.
I’m yearning to turn you on.

I’ve been working on getting you off, so get on board.
Well how can I guess by the subject of the best predicate that’s left unsaid when the matter is too delicate.
My loneliness is evident.

And its you,
You’re running through my mind and it makes me c-c-crazy cra-cra-crazy.

La la la
La la la la la
La la la (ooooooo, so amazing)
La la la la la la
La la la
Laaaa oh oh
Laaaaaa lo oh oh oh

Lady, Dreamer, you might be the soundest sleeper,
Tonight, sleep tight, and build your nest upon my shoulder.

Unspoken Words

1 2 3 4

I still remember how I well I slept after I said goodnight. I thought it was normal to feel this way but it wasn’t. I was in love and I didn’t know it. You had a broken heart and you didn’t show it. We held back and it ruined us. If I had one wish, I’d want to start all over again; no regrets.

How long as it been, love? When I last ranted and swore I’d hate you forever? How long did I last?

And how is it going over there? With your family; how are you coping? Are you sleeping and eating enough?

The past months has been horrible for me. The mood swings are getting bad to worst and it’s getting so hard to hide. No one understands.

Recently I’ve been thinking again. Of all the words I had left unspoken.

And I really hope you’ll see this.

“Nothing haunts us like the things we don’t say.”

-Mitch Albom

I’ve always been so jealous of Hopey. I don’t care if you say you don’t like her. It just isn’t fair. Why did she have to be closer? I want to spend more time with you.

I’ve been holding back for so long. I didn’t want to tweet you, direct message you of email you. But I don’t want pity love. That would be the worst thing you could do to me and I don’t want to put you in a spot.

I still think of you. Your name-even if it’s not you- catches my eye and I catch myself scrolling back up for a second look.

I’ve said this, one too many times, but I love you. I really, from the bottom of my heart, love you. And I just want you to know that I care. In fact, you’re the only one I’ve ever cared so much about.

5

And if ever you feel like no one appreciates you, remember me. Don’t forget me. Because for as long as I can help it, I’ll be here. I’ll leave the key to the door of my heart under the mat and when you’re back, I’ll greet you with a smile. Like nothing ever happened.

You’re probably thinking ‘It wouldn’t be the same anymore’, but hey, we’ll fake it till we make it and I’m willing to try as long as you do to.

Stay strong, love, and keep fighting.

You’ll pull through your dark times and I’ll be at the end of the tunnel, waiting to welcome you with open arms.

Suit Up!

During my attachment, I got a chance to participate in an environmental achievement award ceremony at a fancy hotel :}

I was in charge of the sponsorship side of reception. This means I get to stare at everyone coming in and eye candy people. Too bad everyone attending was practically double or at least +6 years of my age so… :/

Of course there were pictures, even though I only took two. But they look pretty alright, right? Everyone looks so smart!

image

During the event, we had a three course lunch. I didn’t take pictures of the first two because they weren’t exactly fantastic looking but the dessert was the bomb.

The cake was a little too sweet but it was probably because I was trying to help finish my colleague’s. 😛
I also fell in love with Salted Caramel Macaroons :D!!!

The event was tiring but it went really smoothly. Everyone was really tired, but it didn’t stop us from celebrating with wine when we got back! Huehuehue…

Internship is ending this week. I’ll really miss this bunch of people 😦

I Turned My Friend into a Meme

It is exactly what the title states. I was trying to take unglamorous shots of him when this pictuee happened and simply couldn’t help myself.
