Day 5: London

 

 

Hey everyone! Another europe post! haha i must be shocking everyone with my efficiency but actually i’ve just been really free these past few days. I’ve decided to post day 4 and 5 quite close together because they’re pretty light on the pictures and what not. We didn’t do much except for shopping hence the lack of pictures.

Well for this day we took a free walking tour around London. Walked around to Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace and like random Parliament Houses. Okay not random but i just didn’t really give a shit to take note haha i don’t know i love travelling and exploring, but they weren’t that impressive to me and i don’t think i should show more interest just because they’re “tourist spots”. Well i don’t know maybe i just didn’t have the patience to listen to the tour guide telling us about history of the places. Well except King Henry (?) and how he killed all his wives and all the other tragic murders in the palace. That was pretty cool. Too bad it was on another walking tour and my parents didn’t want to go with me:(

IMG_8546The wait was too long and i couldn’t stand still in one spot for that 10 minutes so i went to walk around. Found this cute antique market! Wanted to look around more but the tour started shortly. Was determined to come back the next day and we did haha

Day 4: London

 Heyhey! Yes finally continuing on with the Europe posts haha gawd i miss London sooooo much. I’ve just fallen completely in love with the UK and their farmers markets. I could spend everyday exploring a new part of London and i’d never be done, it’s just such quaint place that’s filled with so much history and tradition, old architecture mixed in with the new and just hipster goodness in general (omg i did not just say that) hahaha but yea the 16 degree weather was definitely a plus too, who can say no to layers? Although i did miss my crops and shorts haha

So for Day 4 we actually went shopping!! I don’t have a haul for you guys though, simply because I DONT KNOW HOW TO. Video? Pictures? and know i don’t really want to show everything i got, cos most of it ain’t all that haha but maybe just my favourite pieces and best buys and some advice with shopping in London.

But first! pictures!

IMG_8323It was a Sunday so we headed to church! Went to Wesley’s there and apparently it’s the original one where John Wesley worshipped etc and also even had his grave. AND we went on his death anniversary so they had this special service thing. btw i love church services in the UK, short and sweet, a jam packed hour of holiness and we were outta there (to go shopping)

IMG_8442You have no idea how happy i was to see this combo. If you didn’t already know, sashimi and japanese food in general is my drug. Being in the UK for 4 days without jap food was already killing me. So when i saw Wasabi, which is basically a jap food takeaway WITH sashimi, i had to get some. Even if it was terribly and atrociously overpriced ($30 just for like 8 pieces of salmon? #worthit)

Escape

Hello! 🙂 Okay so i’ve recently got a few questions on ask.fm about my future,

“What are you plans for uni!”

“What are you doing with your life now exactly?”

And i figured i might as well answer it here haha

For all of you who don’t know me, i’ve just graduated from JC and i’m taking a gap year or year’s haha it really just depends if i find anything to do. I don’t plan on going to uni, and if i do it most probably will be next year or the year after that. And which uni? Culinary school cos that’s where my interest lies. Maybe some people find that i’m too relaxed with my plans or life in general but honestly i don’t see a reason why i should be so stressed up about it. Life is short, i don’t want to spend 3 years of it stuck in school studying something i don’t enjoy or won’t even need. I’ve done my A levels, and SATs, i can go back to school if i want to but it’s just my choice not to.

I don’t disagree that a degree is important to some people; it really all depends on what you want to do in life. If you want to be a lawyer, you need a law degree, unless you’re Mike Ross or something (yay suits), but i don’t want any of that. I just want to be happy, move to Australia have a simple job that’s sufficient. Have someone i love to go home to. Chill in my backyard in the evenings or go out with my friends since it’s mandatory in Aus for work to end at 5, barbecues on weekends, playing softball, taking a trip down to the beach. That’s life to me, and that’s where i want to be in 10 years time.

Right now, i’m just working here and there enough to pay my bills and fund my random shopping sprees. I’m doing things i love and having fun with my friends. Learning new languages and skills, more importantly learning more about myself. Travelling and exploring. Just taking things slow in general. I’m going where life takes me. At the end of the day it’s all about the moments that took your breath away.

There’s this quote but Harun Yahya: ” I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth, then i ask myself the same question.” I don’t know when i did, but at some point i realised that i have absolute control of my life and i can do anything i want to (within good reason haha)

My parents worked very hard to provide for me and put me through school. I really admire how strong they are, i’m not an easy kid to deal with, and how understanding they have been with the choices i make. Since young they’ve always wanted me to be a doctor, they’ve had all these hopes and dreams for me and i’m technically their only shot since i’m their only child haha But at the end of the day they only want me to happy and live a comfortable life. Our parents love us and love is not selfish. Maybe to them being a doctor is what will make me happy and give me a stable job that provides a comfortable life, which i completely understand. But what if i can achieve the same, just by another method? Is that not doing them proud too? I see too many people doing exactly what they were told, and only ending up miserable. Like i said, my parents are the best and have been so soooo understanding, i guess it’s all about give and take. I’ve spent quite awhile getting them to see it from my point of view and trying to show them i know what i want in life and i’m being level headed about this instead of being some kid running around yelling yolo. It’s taken a lot for them to trust me but i’m glad to be where i am with all this today.

I have somewhat of an idea of what i want and don’t want in life. And in between, i guess i’m just figuring out if the things i’m doing or the opportunities that are presented to me will bring me closer to that ideal or not.  I want to look back and have more “ah well at least i tried” than “what ifs”. I think everyone owes it to himself or herself to just go out and do whatever the hell they want. Do whatever makes you happy. If at the end of the day you’re happy and content, who has any right to criticise whatever you did to achieve that.

Okay whoa that was a really lengthy post i don’t know how many of you actually read through that hahahha but yea it felt good to get it off my chest:) Thanks for reading if you did:) In other news, i’ve just heard Perth has this 6 month holiday-work visa, anyone up to move to Perth with me?

Updates!

Hi everyone! sooooo overdue and tons of you are chasing me on ask.fm haha sorry i suck at this. I find it so sweet that people (i think that’s like 2) actually enjoy reading my blog. I’m not an exceptional writer or what so i like to think it’s because my life is just so interesting. okay i’m kidding haha but yea it sucks that i can’t string words together beautifully to move others…which is why i’m so attracted to people who can (sigh a story for another time)

Anyway! i was scrolling through my pictures from my Europe trip and i got super excited?? SOMEONE TAKE ME BACK. Playing with the idea of being an air stewardess now just so i can go back for free ahahah this is just a post with random iPhone pictures and what i’ve been up to recently. I’m drafting more posts of my europe trip (omg when will i ever be done) so stay tuned for that!

A lot of exciting new things coming up for me soon too *cross fingers* i hope everything will work out and i can share it with you guys:) hard, consistent work pays off! *fist pump in the air*

Went to THW with my parents one morning, we freaking queued at 10am haha  There was a lot more food but these were my favourite and my staples at any chinese food place. I’m always eating the same thing. They were good but not worth waking up at 930 for it. EXCEPT THE CHAR SIEW BAOS. GOOD GOD. i would queue overnight for those hahaha

There’s an omasake restaurant that’s booked till sept haha

Ending my post with my fave LLAO LLAO HAHA berries and more berries! okay i don’t think it’s worth all the hype, the yoghurt itself is pretty much the same as yoguru just that it’s a bit milkier. BUT the warm WILD BERRIES SAUCE is to die for, and that isn’t avail at yoguru or any other froyo stores, so that would be what sets it apart from the rest and motivates me to travel all the way to 313 to get it hahah so if you’re not in for the berries then this ain’t all that.

I have soooo many things i want to blog about! Many of you have been asking me to post my hauls/ exercise routines/ room+ wardrobe tour and i really want too but i don’t want to put crappy iPhone pictures up here:( my DSLR died on me during my europe trip *cries* so right now i’m desperately looking for a good camera. Once i do, then i’ll post okay! Maybe i can do a video haul? But do you really want to hear me talk….hahah listening to myself is so cringeworthy haha

OneFC 2014

 

Hi! Decided to post something here because a super cute anon on ask fm said she enjoys reading my blog:’) honestly when i started this, i never thought anyone would read it, except for like edi and rocio…and maybe shien if she gets off her ass to use the comp (jk i love you)

Anyway! Last week i had the privilege of working for OneFC, mainly for their promo events and the actual event day too:) so OneFC from monday to friday! haha i was working with the beautiful Chanel^^ Who made work so much more enjoyable and time passed so fast with our hearty conversations and laughs.

IMG_8615My new kimono outerwear which i feel very geisha in, especially while reading Memoirs of a Geisha (lol) and Chanel at the back!

IMG_8616

IMG_8620Korean food for lunch after work! it’s soooo good, we went to a small restaurant below chevron house, bait pricey but worth every drop of kimchi soup

IMG_8624One of the brazillian fighters

IMG_8626Chanel and i with out POTATOES HAHA someone was giving free potatoes out at Raffles Place so off i had to get two (one for edi lol)

IMG_8635So tired after work

IMG_8687

IMG_8689He was so sweet to step out and take a picture with me! He’s really the sweetest “celeb” man, super humbled by his behaviour. A random fan approached him to say hi, and when eddie heard that he couldn’t get tickets for the match, he immediately went to his manager to get a couple of tickets for that guy.

IMG_8801Poor guy:( but yea so happy we got to watch from right next to the ring!

IMG_8806

 

Yep that’s it! Really loved the whole week working for OneFC and i love Chanel’s Nikes omg…haha anyway many of you have been asking me about my exercise routine and what not on ask.fm so i was considering doing a post on it soon! Also was thinking of sharing my haul from herb recently:)

Till next time!
