My day was never so long as when I met so many faces two days ago. For anyone following my Instagram Stories, these would be a familiar sight:
Next up was a lunch date with Pa, where he introduced me to this San Lau Hor Fun (三捞河粉) at $6 per plate, with a nice serving of beansprouts. The amusing part came when we ordered our drinks and the drinks lady commented on how much we resembled each other; even though Pa joked that I was his girlfriend from China – because he’s where I get my twisted sense of humour from.
I definitely get my goof from Mum though. We took this picture while waiting our turn to visit Ah Ma, my last living grandparent, at the hospital (Pa wasn’t feeling well then; he visited on another day). Apparently the doctors are telling us to prepare for the worst, and while I’m hoping that things take a turn for the better, the fact remains that Ah Ma is ninety years old… and senescence is a bitch. On the way back, Mum told me to end her own suffering if she ever got to such a state, but I had to tell her that euthanasia is illegal in most places. 😅
I traveled down to meet Ottie at work during his break – our schedules have been pretty busy lately, so this was a rare window of opportunity to spend some time together. We bought some noms at a newly-opened DJ Bakery – I loved their rainbow sprinkle donut! So. Many. Sprinkles. However, his break ended prematurely and it ended up being just me and his colleague in the room. Small talk ensued – and it became such that one of the first things he knew about me was that I enjoy reading BL manga. WHY, BRAIN??!
Those were shots of some free promotional citrus concoction at Manhatten Fish Market though. Here in clockwise from the left is me, Ruru, Shasha, and Sal! It’s been so long.
Ruru scored four free tickets to the latest run of Wicked at the Marina Bay Sands, and I was the only one of us who hadn’t seen a previous run before! I knew the general gist of what it was about (and I mean, at this point who hasn’t?), but the witty lines, delightful acting, and powerful vocals totally blew me away. NGL, I started tearing up from this song on:
Of course, this video features the original cast who’ve since graduated from the 2003 run.
Not forgetting my outfit:
Sammy Icon launched their AW16 socks collection and I was lucky to be able to choose three of my favourites! Here starting from the left is the Gaudi, Lumiere, Dekart. Can’t wait to style the other two!
