Ah Choo!

Finally caught a cold today (21 June 2021). Haven’t had one since taking the flu vaccine last Oct. Not sure if it’s that or the mask wearing + WFH that’s keeping me healthy. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Fight (for) My Way

Fight My Way captures dating dynamics vRey well. It’s hard for old friends to date cos the risk of losing the friendship is high. It’s also hard to maintain a r/ship. The girl may ♥️ the guy so much that she asks for nothing but guys want to feel needed & ends up falling for […]

Dear Diary – Vesak Day

Vesak Day. Nice to have a midweek break. Glad the 8pm call on Digital Strategy was meaningful too. Binged Netflix – Bad Guys, No Mercy, Suspicious Partners. 🥳

Bye bye, Tris

Tris left us on 21 May 2020. She didn’t eat much the day before but took CC when we fed her during lunch. She didn’t eat dinner so we fed her another round of CC at night. She wasn’t active the whole night so I came out around midnight to sit on the living room […]
