Painted Teacups

My apologies for being away for so long and not posting regular updates as I should be It’s been tough trying to attain a work-life balance since full-time work began. I can’t say I’ve had much time to sit down and have a good think or write – certainly a luxury I didn’t know I had. There are other luxuries now of course, not to undermine or be ungrateful for such – like not being tied to assignments and exams after the workday ends I’ve had the blog on my mind for a while and I keep telling myself I need to find time and sit down and do a good write but every weekend comes and it eludes me and I think to myself I’ll do it the weekend after… Not exactly working out though and before I know it months have passed and this blog is thirsty for ink.

So what’s happened since I last posted?

J is back from his 16-week-long stint in the States , which is pretty cool because now we get to hang out and make local phone calls and get soaked under a tiny umbrella in the rain and overeat food – all very cool stuff obviously. But every second of this time is even more precious because I know that soon he’ll have to pack up and whisk off again and it might be a long time this time round before we get to do these again. I know it’s scary and hard and sometimes it’ll feel like a vast desert but I suppose everything’s part of a greater plan and under control of the One who knows.

I travelled to Singapore last month to attend two weddings. So glad to be able to share the joy of my now newly-wedded friends and it just hits me that everyone is growing up so fast and being all adult now! Like where did all the time go?

At Meixiu and Kwanghui's.

At Audrey and Ken's.

Also did the most Singaporean thing ever (do as the locals do, am I right?) and queued two hours for BAKE cheese tarts!! Hahahaha my excuse is that being on holiday I totally have time and my reward is these melty, fluffy cheese tarts!

I got to go to touristy places too in addition to revisiting places I used to go to, which is great!
Had lots of fun sitting on the moon.

Having a tea party with my dollies.

As always, my favourite dish from TCC - the Shrooms Bite! Except this one has a bit of a twist with mentaiko seafood filling which is super yummy too

Probably not a secret that I've got a thing for mentaiko flavoured everything haha!
Mentaiko and seaweed fries from Grub.

Winter is also officially here and my hair has gone frosty! I took a bit of time to warm up (ha, warm up!) to these granny greys as this colour isn’t really what I’d normally go for, but it has faded to a bit of a silvery ash blonde which is quite nice

It’s funny also because after going granny grey, I began noticing a bit of a trend with greys and silver hair. I guess I'm not complaining - just doing my thing keeping up with trends, yeah?
