It's been a great week so far, besides the fact that i've been sneezing and coughing my lungs out. I finally wore these pants out again, despite them being a size too small. It makes my booty look good but boy do i have to hold my breath everytime i sit!!! Also, i've been reading a lot of Lang Leav lately, maybe you should check her out.

Thursday morning saw me waking up to a stuffy nose and an itchy throat. GREAT. It must be all the late night chocolate sneaks to the fridge. Grabbed the most comfortable thing in sight which happened to be these pair of sweatpants i haven't worn in ages. Perfect fit. Maybe it's time i invest in a few more pairs. Oh and, start going back to yoga again. Can't begin to explain how comfy i felt today- ultimate no makeup (except lippy and a dash of eyeliner, of course) + sweatpants combi of the year
We ran around returning clothes like the yingyangterns we are and ended up bumping into Gerald, one of the writers for Style Men, and grabbed gong cha with him (thanks for the treat, G!) One week and two gong cha treats, SCORE! We conversed about school and how he landed at Style, a very interesting turn of events. Funny how life takes us places, no? One day you're waking up from a painful heartbreak and the next you're waking up to your dream job. It's surreal. Just thinking about how many more days left for internship makes me a little sad inside but the best i can do to thank God for even landing a spot here is to make the best of what i have left. It's definitely been an insightful 1.5 months. I've learnt so much and yet, i'm yearning so earnestly for more. But that's how it is, no? There really isn't any limit to learning.
I'm ready for so much more so, bring it on!

Waking up late resulted in grabbing whatever i could find at first glance: a pair of old overalls and crossbody bag. Perfect. Never really thought i could work overalls without looking a tad kiddy but the bag killed it! Thoughts: wouldn't a fanny pack werk with the getup as well? I'm thinking the right size and shape would definitely edge it up. (Yes, i think fanny packs are cool) I ran around with one as a kid in the 90's and here's hoping that someone will bring it back! I was too tempted to tie the straps to my waist, maybe it's time to DIY a fanny pack yes/no?
We had a good day today. Macdonalds breakfast treat from our lovely boss sharon and had whacky conversations with her and Lena over our AM Sunrise rolls and hashbrown! I was especially touched when one of them shared the story of how she met her husband with us. Kept me thinking about fate, life and love all day. I have to say that the perks of this internship is definitely meeting so many creative and wonderful individuals, i'm going to miss them all so much when i leave!

I've left this roll to rot on my shelf for a month too long but i'm glad they're finally developed! I love allllll the blues in this roll, thanks to my shots in Batam. Looking at it now makes me smile cause all these moments captured in film are spinning fresh in my head.
A lot has changed since and i like that i remember the events of my life through the pictures i take. I always seem to be able to recount what happened on that day or what i was going through at the period of time. I remember how in the third picture, i was so anxiously waiting for someone to ask me out. And the last, our second day at work! But not every memory is a good one, i'm afraid. I remember these days like i remember the good ones. I guess that's how my mind works. Looking at it now, all these pictures just look the same, they all look so happy and maybe that's just how i should choose to see things these days.
On another note, i miss my friends quite dearly. We said that a lot will change when jeremy goes to army and it really has. I miss the free fridays we spend in jeremy's place, OR THE ALPHA CAVE as we call it, going for midnight suppers at Simpang and oh my, BATAM! How can i forget Batam? I'll be sure to edit my pictures from there but for now, let's let the film do all the talking.
P.s One more roll from my newly acquired La Sardina, courtesy of Lomography Embassy SG & Actually SG, is on the way! Stay tuned x
