My freelance year in review

FLYING OFF LATE TONIGHT BUT STILL TRYING TO CHIONG WORK HOHOHO. I guess that’s the thing about the freelance life: sometimes there’s not enough work and you worry. And sometimes you’re like AJDFHUEWUFEB too much work I is made a mistake in accepting all dis.

I woke up this morning and started thinking of all the things I had to do. And I felt that little bubble of anxiety inside my stomach and thought nuuuuuuuu. I have sooo much to do. Not just about work, but other things in my personal life too. I’ll be abroad 20th-31st this month on a family vacation, but I just feel like there’s so much to do before that. You know, boliao stuff like packing, buying little essentials I need, etc.

What I use for underwater makeup

This morning: Me: Ma, if you’re near a supermarket today can help me get Thirsty Hippo? Mum: Wait ah I put down in my phone. So…. Dirty Hippo? Me: LOL WAT U SAYING Hahahhaha. Anyway let’s talk makeup today! I’m not a beauty guru or a beauty expert in any way - even when I worked in publishing, I covered features and fashion (briefly). I never wore makeup until I was in my mid 20s.

Almost got run over by a PDA hating auntie

I know it sounds like clickbait BUT IT REALLY ISN’T OKAY. This genuinely shook me, because I just didn’t know what to make of it.

And then out of NOWHERE, this car comes speeding towards us into the lot where we were standing in. We literally had to slam the car door shut and jump out of the way to get out of being hit.

I feel like my clothes define me

The other day some friends were hanging out at my place after work and we ended up playing dress up in my ridiculous closet of too many clothes. Context: one friend is a civil servant, the other friend works in banking. Which means their idea of office wear is VERY different to what I have.

I’m a proud Potterhead

Went to watch Harry Potter and Prisoner of Azkaban in Concert and felt like all my geeky dreams were coming true. Basically the movie was screened at the Esplanade theatre, but to a live orchestra! It’s the third year in a row for the concert series and I’ve always wanted to watch it but the price made me back off. So this year I thought, screw it. Let’s pay for a movie I’ve seen many times before, just because I want all that extra Potter feels.
