Last friday.

Random update of last Friday in photos!

Previous day we were happily shopping on Gobbler and our stuffs were delivered the next day!!

Stocking up my snacks supply in the office hahah. My colleagues all say I can open Mama shop liao.

They have new items on the e-store! Bought tons of nuts to try out.

And this mixed nuts is like only $0.80 for a pack?? Just buy!!

Selfie because I hardly put makeup in the office, and only because I had to head down to an event after work!

The chaos when I left the office. Carnival Sale started at 5pm. Was tempted to go shop but didn’t want to squeeze with the crowd. Was too crazy! Took me like 5mins to cross the road too because the cars just kept coming.


Met Ger and the gang for dinner after my event! We were on some really funny topic and we laughed till my stomach ached. My happy pills

Ending the post with my OOTD hahaha.

Woohoo and I can’t wait for the next weekend already when it’s only Monday zzz.

Closure.

I think it’s due time that I’m writing this post. Even though it might not seem like it, the past year has been a roller coaster ride for me, and it is only now that I’m getting down to putting things in words. Sometimes I find it really amazing how in just 1 year, so much can happen. My life was in such a huge mess and I have no one to blame except myself for all the choices I made.

And finally, I decided to do something about it. To start of, I decided to break off my relationship of 7 years a few months back. It wasn’t an easy decision, but it was something that was for the better. It really took a lot of courage to let go, to accept that it was needed. It was nobody’s fault, maybe we just grew apart or maybe we were just not suitable for each other from the start.

Somehow, everything else seemed to fall in place after that. It’s as if when you finally find the courage to fix something, everything else becomes easier. Looking back, I’ve never regretted anything I chose to do. Every mistake is an experience and I always believe that as long as you managed to learn something good out of it, it’s okay. It also serves as a reminder never to commit the same mistake twice.

At this present moment, my heart has never felt lighter and happier, and I’m glad that my life seems to be back on the right track. This reminds me of something Steve Jobs said in a commencement speech about connecting the dots. I guess things happen for a reason and you might not know why at that present moment.. But you just have to keep faith and trust that one day the dots will somehow connect in the future and the reason for every thing that happened will be clear.

Closure. T has been a part of my blog ever since I started it. And as one chapter of my life ends, another begins. I don’t know what the future holds – definitely scary – but I know that everything will be okay eventually.

This post also serves as a reminder to myself.. I’ll always be reminded of my mistakes, reminded of how I took so many wrong turns before finding my way out, and most importantly, reminded of how I should live my life from now onwards. :)

Have courage and be kind.

“When there is kindness, there’s goodness, and when there is goodness, there’s magic”

Watched Cinderella over the weekends and to be honest, I wasn’t really interested in the movie. (But my friend wanted to, so ok loh) But throughout the show I kept crying because it was so touching at some parts hahahaha. I’ve watched the original Cinderella cartoon so many times, but it never occurred to me as a sad story. (Lost her mother and father, grew up with evil stepmother and stepsisters and had no one to talk to except mice and a goose) But maybe seeing it in real life settings, made it somehow a little more relatable?

I also liked that the movie was a little different from the original Cinderella. It wasn’t really a love at first sight kind of thing, at least they had some interaction before that.. And the ending where she was going to face the prince as just who she was with no beautiful gown and hair (no magic to help her anymore), and she wasn’t sure if the prince would accept her as who she really is. It’s like teaching us to face the world with courage even though we’re imperfect.

Love the animation, the blue dress, the glass slippers, the house… And the soundtrack too, especially the ending song:

In a perfect storybook the world is brave and good
A hero takes your hand, a sweet love will follow
But life’s a different game, the sorrow and the pain
Only you can change your world tomorrow

Let your smile light up the sky
Keep your spirit soaring high

Trust in your heart and your soul shines forever and ever
Hold fast to kindness, your light shines forever and ever
I believe in you and in me
We are strong

When once upon a time in stories and in rhyme
A moment you can shine and wear your own crown
Be the one that rescues you
Through the clouds you’ll see the blue

Trust in your heart and your soul shines forever and ever
Hold fast to kindness, your light shines forever and ever
I believe in you and in me
We are strong

A bird all alone on the wind can still be strong and sing
Sing

Trust in your heart and your soul shines forever and ever
Hold fast to kindness, your light shines forever and ever
I believe in you and in me
We are strong

The movie was way better than I’d expected and I’m so going to buy the DVD when it’s out!! The kind of movie I’ll re-watch again and again haha.
