My Week in Squares

February 19, 2015

A squared edition of my week :

The past few weeks/month have been super ultra busy because of Lunar New Year... So I'm actually pretty relieved the pre-CNY season is over. I was blessed enough to have quite a number of ads to shoot and I'm thankful for every single client - like I always am - although I was really stressed out spacing out the postings and making sure everybody had their posts up on their preferred dates!

I love celebrating the Lunar New Year because of EVERYTHING that comes with it. When I was younger it was all about the angbaos but now that I'm older.. I do appreciate seeing all my family and friends and spending some time together which is hard to do because everyone is usually so busy. I love playing Mahjong although I'm not super at it, and enjoy lots of the yummy food my aunts and grandma always cook without fail.
It always surprises people just how superstitious I am because I guess I don't look like I am? But I really like to follow traditions as much as I can.. For example, cleaning out my room before this day and staying up as late as possible because there's a saying that your parents will live longer if their children stay up later on the first day of the Chinese calendar... which is why I'm up now at 3.12am although tomorrow is a long, and early day.

Am always so grateful to have an awesome partner with me literally everyday, eating yummy food, laughing at everything and nothing and squabbling over silly things I like to call our daily official debates. Of course, it's so nice to have him shooting our adventures and not just the ads I need to shoot. 

I felt it was lacking so I added some purple to my hair this week. Courtesy of my second momma who patiently took a day off from work to dye it for me.

Thanks CremeMaison Bakery for these cupcakes as well as the other 3 and the tarts and cookies!

"People often criticise others on why they do the things they do because they don't understand love. Love is the closest thing to magic, and not everyone knows how to deal with magic."

This is one of the best instant ramen I've tried. If you see it at the grocery store.. GET IT!

Oh and I do love going back home to this cutie who only prefers to sleep on my legs other than her comfy and very cute bed.

First reunion dinner with the girls - C cooked us a delicious meal of Mango/Prawn salad and Tom Yum Pasta and it was SO good. Thank you Keasberries for having us!

And there I met with my favourite cat who has the ultimate resting bitch face but really is a sweetheart..

He really is very sweet and he's literally the ONLY cat in this world that I dare carry. I'm very much a dog lover more than a cat kinda person and a lot of that stems from fear of cats clawing at me because I once watched a video of a cat attacking a total stranger who walked into the supermarket for no reason at all!!!

Love this lil guy so much, though. He sends love back in the form of double taps on IG as well! Cutie pie.

One last adventure before the new year in a luxurious kaftan from over the oceans. Deets on my INSTAGRAM!

Gotta love reunion dinner at home, marking the start of the festivities. Nothing tastes as good as home-cooked food with love.

More updates soon, and happy holidays to all!
