Perhaps it's the anticipation, excitement and imagination, of hoping and leading a life you really and truly want, that propels you to take a step into the unknown world of your fantasy...

Day 2: 15 February 2014
Rachel’s 21st birthday party @ The Centris
Too much laughter too much fun. That’s what I always thought after every primary school gathering, cos that’s how well all of us know each other and how comfortable we are with one another. ;)
Really am loving the first photo even though half of my face is not captured (cos I am no selfie expert & the guys at the back kept complaining that their faces are not in the photo. Tskkk.) Not everyone is in here, esp the main female lead but then again, this is how we roll~ And cos Yihan’s face is just too epic HAHAHA! Took super long to take this photo cos everyone was laughing from all the antics and craziness that comes with such long friendship, allowing us to be so comfortable with each other. Can’t believe that our friendship is going 8 years and longer already, and that all of us will be turning 21 this year. That really showed how long we have known each other - I mean, come on, it’s almost half of our lives, or even longer in some cases! Wow!
Every meet-up and gathering with this bunch of people is always so fun. I’m glad I have them in my life. Because I am always cheered up after meeting them no matter how hectic/ stressed/ flustered I am from school and life, and they can always make me laugh and let me to be who I am. No judging, no putting down, only friendly bantering and teasing. HAHA, and that’s precisely why I love them loads. <3
And Happy 21st to the best p-sch friend of mine. Hope you had a great time! It must be so busy playing host to so many different groups of people. And I am really glad we have gotten back into contact and closer than we once were. Here’s me wishing you an amazingly splendid and fantabulous 21st ahead! <3
Can’t wait for the next gathering with them already, cos we don’t even have to try, it’s always a good time! ;)
Day 1: 14 February 2014
Starting the 100 happy days challenge today cos there were many joys today and it was generally a good day; except when I WAS DRENCHED, IN THE RAIN, FROM UNDER THE MIDDLE OF THE BUS STOP, WITHOUT ANY BUSES TO SAVE ME. Oh well, actually everyone got wet because it was literally ‘monsoon’ and the whole bus stop was flooded. That was the small downside that dampened my mood a little.
But overall, I had a great day. Received goodies from Ivan, Valerie and Arina early in the morning cos it’s V-Day (and I feel bad for not preparing anything since I’ve had a busy & hectic week) and felt so warm and fuzzy inside. Oh and Joo Teng too! Then we got free balloons at HSS and Valerie treated us all to Artease. Did I mention it was her birthday? She insisted on treating all of us and even to the point where she had to ‘threaten’ our friendship because we had initially refuse to accept her generosity. HAHAHA. But that’s really nice of her. Being in the same group with her this sem for 2 mods has allowed me to get to know her better, and yea previously it was kinda awkward around her since we didn’t have much to talk about but I hope that we can get to know each other more. :)
Another happy note was that I ended a hectic and busy week, though it will only get busier from now on. :/ Got through Park’s make-up class on Tue (5.30-7.30pm and 3 Chapters on “Secrets of Women); Asia-Pac Presentation Meeting on Wed (started at 5pm and ended at 6.15pm, but at least we finalised our focus and had a fruitful discussion); Did up the slides for HH2001 Presentation on Thurs for Friday’s presentation. All these on top of the other 2 Chapters of readings on “Making Sex” for seminar on Fri. But all I feel now is - “YESSS!!! HH2001 PRESENTATION IS OVERRRRR!!!!!”
WHOO~!!! Feelings of (slight) liberation never felt this good.
And so here ends Day 1. #Toolonganentry. Oops! Shall take Sat off as a slight breather before starting work again. Can’t wait for tmr! You’ll know why… soon. ;)
P.S. Posting on Tumblr cos there’s no need to care about likes and shares. That’s the beauty of it, vs Instagram and Facebook. And because all my thoughts - happy or unhappy - are up here. :)
Hope I can have the perseverance to pull this 100 Happy Days Challenge through, esp with all the hectic work and weeks coming up. As Phineas goes, “busy, busy, busy!”
P.P.S. To the 100HappyDays team, I am not sure if you will ever read this but thank you for starting this challenge. I know that only 1 photo is required for each day, but I’ve decide to include more happy snapshots here. In any case, the first photo from the left will always be the main photo. :)
“ One day, he’s going to know. He’ll know your birthday, your middle name, where you were born, your star sign, and your parents names. He’ll know how old you were when you learned to ride a bike, how your grandparents passed away, how many pets you had, and how much you hated going to school. He’ll know your eye colour, your scars, your freckles, your laugh lines and your birth marks. He’ll know your favourite book, movie, candy, food, pair of shoes, colour, and song. He’s going to know why you’re awake at 5am most nights, where you were when you realised you’d lost a good friend, why you picked up the razor and how you managed to put it down before things went too far. He’s going to know your phobias, your dreams, your fears, your wishes, and your worries. He’s going to know about your first heartbreak, your dream wedding, and your problems with your parents. He’ll know your strengths, weaknesses, laziness, energy, and your mixed emotions. He’s going to know about your love for mayonnaise, your dream of being famous when you were five, your need to quote any film you know all the way through, and your fear of growing older. He’ll know your bad habits, your mannerisms, your stroppy pout, your facial expressions, and your laugh like it’s his favourite song. The way you chew, drink, walk, sleep, fidget and kiss. He’s going to know that you’ve already picked out wedding flowers, baby names, tiles for the bathroom, bridesmaid dresses, and the colour of your bedroom walls. He’s going to know, get annoyed at and then accept that you leave clothes everywhere, take twenty minutes to order a Starbucks, have to organise your DVD’s alphabetically, and check your horoscope… just incase. He’ll know your McDonald’s order, how many sugars to put in your tea, how many scoops of ice cream you want, and that you need your sandwiches cut into triangles. He’s going to know how you feel without you telling him, that you need a wee from a look on your face, and that you’re crying without shedding tears. He’s going to know all of it. Everything. You, from top to bottom and inside out. From learning, from sharing, from listening, from watching. He’s going to know every single thing there is to know, and you know what else? He is still going to love you. ”
“ Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all. ”

“ Often friends are for a time and season. It doesn’t mean they weren’t good friends - but the fact is that people and circumstances change. A true and faithful friend is a very rare thing, and a precious gift that is given to us. ”
“ You realize you are not alone, right? No one in their twenties has life figured out. It’s okay to be a mess. You’re living. ”
“ Being alone never felt right. sometimes it felt good, but it never felt right. ”
