Family Day



Spending time together over the weekend is a very usual family affair we have; We do a range of things at home and outside together like eat, shop, eat, watch movies and...... EAT!
Yes, plenty of eating; explains our sizes. Lol.

But yeah, weekends have started to become dedicated family days. Both Saturday and Sunday. I tell my parents they are lucky because both my sister and I are single. Who knows what will happen when we have partners, right? Don't have to worry till many years later though~ Lol.

ANYWAY! Point of today's entry......

Though we spend time together ever so often, be it at home or outside, today felt different. Maybe it's the hormones talking, but the afternoon out felt a whole lot more special. Not that we did anything special............

But while going around, I just felt really blessed and grateful for what I have, who I have. :')

Yeah, I think it's the hormones. LOL.

So, where did we go today?



We had a nice start to our afternoon with a simple high-tea @ Sheraton Tower's Lobby Bar!
(Yes, eating again. Duh.)


Can't really see the design of the Japanese platter because the backdrop is so messy!
Meh.

But yes, that's the Western and Japanese spread. They were okay, quite nice. High Tea can sometimes be such a rip off! You pay about or more than $50 to get just light snacks. Like... I can so get more and better food at other places!

Then again, I guess you pay for the ambience and the quality of the tea? I loved their Lychee tea!
&We got the 1-for-1 though! So just about $100++ for 4. YAY to credit card promotions!


Enjoying the ambience, doing our own thing.
These 2 are almost forever on their phones.

Talk about it being a millennial's habit~
SO.NOT.TRUE!


Me and my sister just chatting until we got influenced and used our phones too. LOLOL.

After high tea, we thought it was a waste to just head home after dressing up... Hahahaha. Yes, us wearing decent to go out is dressing up. Besides, Sugar was with a boarding house, so we could head back late.

WE CAUGHT A MOVIE!! :)
I can't remember what is it anymore. :X

So tadaaaaah, that was our Saturday for you. Simple, yet special. :)
My heart (&tummy) feel so full today.

Then, we come back home......................


......To this special creature everyday.

Life's good. Really good.


Goodnight.

Making Another Feel Lonely

I've been a little sensitive about the people around me lately. I realize, I may have unknowingly made some people feel lonely (or that's what I think luh). Everytime I choose to opt out of lunch, it's like they are left to be alone and then maybe..... lonely? Probably just me, but this thought gave me a notion.

It is not difficult to make another feel lonely and unwanted. And it's a bad thing to do. We have to be careful with what we say and do to others. It's important. Because I think loneliness is a horrible feeling, and it's worse when someone blatantly makes you feel that way.



All that said, I've been different these days. I no longer care as much about the people here. I just do my work and try to avoid further casual encounters (E.g. Lunch) as much and as gently as I can. Being a two-faced bitch now, aren't I?

Hmm... It all started this year actually.



Maybe it's the new circle of friends I've made late last year. Maybe. Could be. Probably.

But it's not like I have lunch with them every day now... I just lunch-in and choose to have lunch with them whenever they ask.

One thing I know though, I've been showing symptoms of boredom during lunch (with...... let's call them "usual") for the longest time ever. My colleague started pointing out to me, hitting me and saying "You and your texting" / "Why are you always on the phone?" / "You and your phone" / "Jasmine is always on her phone now" / "Who are you texting? / It became so often that I couldn't be bothered to stop anymore. I sometimes wondered why and would actually feel bad too..

But I forgot, that was a clear indication of boredom.

Met up with an ex-colleague recently, and she made me realize why I've been not interested in the usual anymore. She pointed out that she gets bored of listening to people talk about their children. And she has 2 children herself! When I heard that..... It clicked! TADAAAH!! That's the answer. The answer to why I've been choosing to avoid having lunch with the usual if I can. It's because of................ the lack of common topic, basically. As the group becomes leaner, the conversations we have becomes more boring. :X

I can't help thinking I wanna get out. It's like.. I feel guilty and sometimes awful to say no, but I want a break. A real break. It didn't feel as bad back then because there were more of us. We talked about more things. And now? :(

I am a little bitch alright.

Lunch @ Upper Thomson!

Squeezing a quick entry during a free Friday because I had a good lunch 2 days in a row, and I wanna blog about it because I'm bored. :p

Met up with an ex-colleague yesterday and had lunch at Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters X. Really liked the break from our usual lunch place that I suggested to go there again today with Ruth! hehe.

Cafe visit during work days are challenging; Upper Thomson is near office, but not so near afterall. Then again, now that I think about it, we sometimes go there for Indian food too! Lol.

So yeah, I'm bored, and here's a quick entry. :3


Lunch partner yesterday!


&Lunch partner today!

Such good lighting gives your great pictures!


One of the dishes we ordered today!
We also shared a dessert as our mains. hehe.

Expensive lunch today because we had to cab to and fro. hurhur.

&Now I'm done because I have work. Meh.

A 'Vintage' Dinner

TURNING 25 🎂
Part 6 : Vintage Dinner with Syu!

Actually..... 'Vintage' only because of the cafe name we went to. :X I'm running out of ideas to name my blog entries! Too literal ones seem boring too. Hahaha. Why does it matter, really.... But anyway, the cafe was decorated in quite a vintage way too! Or at least, that is what I think.. Lol. It was very simple and homely! Really like as if you're home~

So yes, this is our biannual dinner. hahaha. We only meet up to celebrate each other's birthday. So tonight, it was for ME! Part 6, like as if it was really that many times. Hahaha. But I'm really that blessed. ♥


Me and my carbonara! :)
It wasn't really to my liking because it was too.... runny, and was on the spicy side.
I like thicker carbonara, and not spicy. haha.
They were really generous with the noodles and bacon though, I finished as much as I could!


We also shared this plate of cheese potato goodness!♥
Wedges and cheese! It was so good!
They were extremely generous with the cheese. I LOVE.

2 shots of this potato cheese goodness because I'm playing with my new phone and because I was bored waiting for Syuhada to finish her prayers nearby. :)

Oh right! Dinner was at Vintage Delicafe X somewhere near Haji Lane. Was quite a bit of walk from Bugis MRT station, but for this plate of fats, it was all worth it! Hahahah. Seriously, such a simple dish and I'm raving too much about it. It's just not common for restaurants or cafes to be generous with their cheese... You always get some at the top and then nothing at the bottom. -.- Seriously. Am I supposed to ration the cheese myself?!

Anyway, I digress. LOL.


Since we only meet up twice a year, we also spend the rest of the evening just catching up with each others' lives. Oh how time has changed us..... We used to ride bus 72 home together everyday with endless topics! And now, we cramp up only the important events in our lives within that few hours. Not complaining though. At least there's social media to keep us updated. hehe.




&Now, I crash. BYE!
