Couldn’t have asked for a better Christmas!

this Christmas kicked start with Ray’s block leave!!! πŸ˜€ he booked out on Christmas eve and will only need to book in on 2nd Jan πŸ™‚ which unfortunately is 2 days later 😦 so on Christmas eve i went to work in the morning, 9am to 1pm and was supposed to meet him after work but i went to CK and OG to buy his present. got him a Adidas perfume that he likes and a Goldlion interchangeable belt cause his old one was tearing apart and he had to black tape it HAHA. army boy jiu shi like that. everything also black tape! πŸ˜€ i took a super long time to choose the belt cause i just cant decide which looks better and which is not too obvious cause if wear with formal pants too bling not nice. havent had my lunch so i had my lunch at 2+ at subway! eating alone again and i think im getting better at it! πŸ™‚ after that i went to Orchard Ion to buy my Secret Santee’s present, so he met me at Orchard instead of me going to his house. at that time it was already 3pm+ so we decided to stay in Orchard instead of heading to Christmas Wonderland πŸ™‚ ended up walking around and we had Nam Nam for dinner. it was my first time there and i ate the one and only thing i could eat – bahn mi (Vietnamese baguette). initially didnt think much of it but it tasted surprisingly nice! πŸ™‚ but i think those with meat should taste nicer, haha! we went to IONsky after dinner to get a glimpse of the city lights but it wasnt as nice as the first time i went up with kia gek because it was so crowded 😦 the whole place just felt very rowdy and we didnt stay there for long :/ so we ended up walking awhile more after that and then went back home separately cause we were both tired and i didnt want him to send me back πŸ™‚

Christmas Day was super good because i finally got my well-deserved rest! πŸ˜€ slept in all the way till 10+ or was it 11+ and it felt so great! and it just doesn’t make sense that i still feel tired 😦 why oh why! we had lunch at CWP Mcdonalds and ray had a mcspicy, i had his fries and he went to buy one more mcdouble :O i was like woah you too hungry in army is it, haha! after that we went to his house and we baked some cookies and they tasted so super gooddddd πŸ˜€

baking is so much fun, i kind of love it! especially when the whole house is filled with the smell of butter and sugar and everything nice! ❀ πŸ˜€ luckily got auntie around helping us if not i dont know how these cookies are gonna turn out πŸ™„

after that ray and i went for a jog together and i got to run 2.4km ever since secondary school ended, hahaha! πŸ˜€ felt so good to be wearing the ngee ann shirt and have my hair all tied up, it feels like i time traveled back to my lupsup times in poly, just with my NP shirt, denim shorts, slippers (which i swore in year 1 to never ever wear to school but ended up wearing it anyway), and my jansport bag. back to those times when i only leave school at 10pm at night because i was rushing assignments in the library or just because we stayed back to slack. or was it because there were meetings for various hiclub events? i miss poly already πŸ™‚ ❀

thank you for the enjoyable christmas, and thank you for sending me home! πŸ˜€ love you!


Saturday morning started with a horrible horrible wake up call πŸ˜₯ ray couldnt sleep, he woke up at 5am+ cause his throat was hurting badly. and he made my way to my house. he woke me up with 4 missed calls and i answered the 5th call at 8am, when he was about to reach my house. so i very quickly got out of bed and prepared and met him downstairs in 40 minutes πŸ™„ hahaha. then we went for awesome-mawsome breakfast! πŸ˜€ at my favorite vegetarian place called zi zai zai ❀ we had nasi lemak and prata! πŸ˜€ they taste soooo good! anyone interested to try please let me know okay πŸ™‚ we can go together πŸ˜‰

moving on to sunday! πŸ™‚ had brunch with the comm, like finally! πŸ˜€ our last meeting was a few months ago at DinTaiFung? appreciate the effort that we keep, just making time for one another and to catch up with each other on our lives πŸ™‚ we (ray, cleon, kimleng, david, jiablack, huiyin, and i. xinying joined for a short while before meeting her friends) met at 49 seats at 11.30am and we all ordered our own respective pastas. after eating we wanted to go to playnation for saboteur/bang but it wasnt open! so we went to scape open area upstairs and played 2 rounds of resistance which was really fun, and it made me think of the times in phuket πŸ™‚ really miss that trip because we were so comfortable with one another. everything was just very chillax and fun and full of nonsense. can you imagine a bunch of people ‘skating’ on the top floor of the mall just because the floor was very smooth? we did that πŸ™‚ and i’ve got no regrets! that’s what makes a trip fun and memorable. after playing, david had to leave because he was booking in at 730pm. the rest of the bunch continued and went to Doyce Tokyo for desserts. we had matcha cake and yuzu with vanilla soft serve which was delicious πŸ™‚ went off separate ways after that! short but great outing nonetheless πŸ˜€

took time off on monday specially for these girls! finally meeting up again after not having our weekly affair for about a month because i went overseas and also because i was too busy with work! but i am so so glad we met up together for christmas and also did the Secret Santa gift exchangeΒ πŸ™‚ i love it cause we really put in effort for one another and understand each other well. ❀ first off, met up with jiablack and huiyin at dhoby ghaut to buy drinks for the crazy 6 hours K session at Rendezvous Teo Heng πŸ™‚ thank you huiyin for making sandwiches for us πŸ˜€ it was really delicious and it felt good eating and K-ing at the same time. xinying joined us at about 2pm after work πŸ™‚ then after K we walked to switch at bras basah and we had a half and half pizza which they so automatically decided to get either mushroom/4 cheese pizza for me even before i had to ask or had to look at the menu ❀ i really love it and love you girls! i was quite touched at that moment :’) had a few drinks and listened to the live band, which i found the female lead singer’s voice too high and sharp for me. when the band took a break, we started the gift exchange and it was sooo fun! πŸ˜€ i was xinying’s santa, jiablack was my santa, huiyin was jiablack’s santa, and xinying was huiyin’s santa. i love my present!!Β it’s the starbucks tumbler which i have been eyeing on ever since i got to know of starbucks but i just cant bear to spend money on it, and jiablack got it for me because she thought i could use it to keep my coffee warm in office throughout the day! awwwww πŸ™‚ i always had to finish my coffee before it turns cold and it turns cold super fast cause of the aircon. thank you jiablack <3! also received a super cute coaster from huiyin, hand-crocheted by herself, so sweet ❀ and also a self-designed christmas card from xinying which she wrote the same thing for everybody HAHA πŸ˜€ loved the day, and loved the night ❀ blessed to have you girls in my life! let’s celebrate christmas together again next year πŸ™‚
