très stressed

The week hasn't been the kindest to me, even though it started off pretty amazing ☀ Deadlines are beckoning, with the whole jumble of statistical jargon yearning to be internalized. I spend half the time wishing they would just whisk away (along with certain irrationalities hmm)  - but to no avail so I take comfort in grape-flavoured bubblegum and green tea sachets which have been my loyal companions through the day^^ Still summer dreaming, as usual. What can you say, after all we're all creatures of habit. Shoutout to Hasan: You still have my Derwent cream watercolour pencil from Art Friend!

Coffee drinkers make better lovers,

An eventual meet up with the AC girls (but with qiaolin missing) after so long! Catching up at The Plain @ 50 Craig Road - Yuechin's recommendation, with lunch stretching into afternoon tea ☺ Lazy day spent indoors, piping hot tea was especially appreciated since the weather was pretty dreadful with the constant rain. The interior was really warm and cosy too! Not many nice shots though, because my lenses froze (to my horror)

We ordered toasted Turkey and avocado ciabatta, Vegemite and soldiers (bread platter with egg dip) and Darling's eggs. Sounds like a lot haha but it was just nice, and they have such cutesy names for their dishes.

Really good to finally catch up with the both of them, especially since Chin is bounded for UK once again. I can't believe that has been a year since she left, time really passes too fast. But it's still so heartwarming to know that even as we have come thus far, we've kept true to ourselves and still the same old silly bunch we used to be (and will always be hahaha) Perhaps we'll all see each other in London this time next year ♥ 

P.S. Gonna upload my Melbourne pictures in parts

Wake me up when September ends,

" So do not fear, for I am with you, do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand..." 
Isaiah 41:10
With such a reassuring bible verse in the September chapter of my calendar, it really helps to get me by -  despite the overwhelming number of deadlines charging my way! Can't be more thankful for His grace, and the eventful recess week that I've been having! I think we all tend to get so caught up in life and all that jazz, with that 101 things on our platter, that we lose track of ourselves. Why, why, it's just another one of those rainy reflective days so here's some love to everyone studying for mid terms and rushing out their projects, have faith ♥

What we have is gold,

And will hopefully never grow old, from Secondary school to beyond ♥ Awesome start to the recess week - with USS with my girls, snapping pictures like there's no tomorrow, prancing in the rain with silly $2 ponchos, catching up, and singing with our helium-induced voices before Karen flies off to Windy city. Work is beckoning, but I shall scuttle off to meet the AC girls @ The Plain for lunch first! I promise pictures soon.

For the beauty in life that surrounds us,

Simple pleasures in life, like the smiles gathered on a Friday night with the newly formed PRU family ♥ Indulging in the decadence of 小笼包 (Shanghai soup dumplings), laughter and great company for the start of the new office term! So grateful that I managed to loan the DSLR from NUPS to capture these memories forged.

Mingyi's tactical strategy for maximizing buffets (...which unfortunately minimizes pleasure in my opinion!), with XLB basket towers and jokes around the table. So glad the whole committee got to gel together pretty fast - with such vibrant personalities, the year ahead promises to be full of mirth ☀

P.S. Probably won't be able to stomach another XLB for the next thirty days Crystal Jade la mian xiao long bao 241/241A Holland Avenue Holland Village Singapore (Average about $25/pax but differs from timing to timing)

All in (almost) a week's worth,

To do list
1. Develop film roll
2. Search for Black forest cake recipes by mid week
3. Collect DSLR on loan
4. Clear wardrobe
5. Read up on Statistics so I can actually serve up constructive contributions during laboratory sessions
6. Clear backlog (easier said than done)
7. Exercise (This thing will probably perpetually remain on this list)

Recess week is beckoning, such a breather really!
