Happy Deepavali everyone! Am posting these pictures taken in Bali back in May, yeah how did six months pass by so fast?? I have no idea and now suddenly I am reminded of how old I am. Hur to the hur!

Bali was so amazing but it was way. too. short. Need to go back soon and explore Ubud next, which we didn’t have time for the last time. It was a great getaway nonetheless – we played frisbee by the beach at sunset, sat by the roadside listening to the most amazing live music (paying cover is so 2008, people!) and became a little bit obsessed with Caprisone. Isn’t it funny how they are some things which you kind of obsess over only on holidays but don’t pay much attention to when you’re back home?

How are you spending the public holiday? I’m finding myself watching Sex and the City re-runs on HBO On Demand which I recently realised that we have and eating some pb&j sandwiches. Yesterday night was spent cycling to Marina Bay Sands, we took the scenic route and I was struck (not for the first time) by how beautiful Singapore can be.

Hope you have a great day!

Hi dears! I did this exercise for my friend where I had look for ten photos which represented success to me. It was a really interesting exercise and made for some good soul-searching as well. These were some of the photos that I picked.

You should try it as well!

Sorry for the longer-than-intended hiatus, but was in a funk for awhile and never got around to blogging, though I really wanted to!

I have missed this place a lot! Here’s to blogging more regularly!

Now, I know Hari Raya has come and gone, but thought I’d share with you photos I took on the first day of Raya. Looking back on them now, the photos make me smile and just feel really happy inside! Hope you like them too dearies!

The obligatory family shot. I love how vibrant the colours look!

I love how there are two very distinct conversations happening in this picture.

One month of fasting turns you into a kuih monster!

Candid shot.

My beautiful mom! Wish I can age looking just like her!

Behind the scenes of the mass apologising session.

My dad hehe. Gotta love a family that makes teh/kopi pit stops!

One is my purse, the one is my dad’s man purse, heheheh!

So incongruous. Love it!

Mutual grooming!

Love the colours against the backdrop of green.

Last but not least, this neon sign was actually inside someone’s house!

It’s great to be blogging again! Hello again guys and hope you didn’t forget about me!
