Baby on Craft


the time has comeโ€ฆ

For me to sit next to a pregnant lady, with a baby on an aircraft!!!!!!

Good Lord!!

But Praise the Lord! the baby wasn’t so much of a nuisance. ๐Ÿ˜€

Although the baby was cute, I sure did witness how the mummy became “cute-tified” to bring out that smile in the child. ๐Ÿ˜€ Good Lordโ€ฆ Will I be like that when its my turn?

But I wonder how to children react to air pressure change, okay, maybe not react, cos most of them would probably cry.

I believe in the pinch nose, blow air backwards, towards the ear canal tactic. But how to teach babies to do that? So poor thing. Pain, cry. :/

Anyway, until then lar huh. ๐Ÿ™‚

Speaking of travelingโ€ฆ I set a vision for myself. I want to take a photo of the 12 apostles before it becomes dunno how many apostles left. ๐Ÿ˜€

and was sitting in a car the other day, was pretty provoked by myself. Or probably the bus, after a meal w Iris, and I felt it in my heart.
I shall go to Paris and visit the Eiffel tower as a graduation celebration after my UniSIM.


Yup, UniSIMโ€ฆ. Its not going to be easy, hadn’t been, neither will be.

๐Ÿ˜€ and on that note, nobody said anything about not going before the graduation. ๐Ÿ˜€



Hmmโ€ฆ and I was strategizing, you know the French speaking people, they kinda not appreciate people trying to speak English to them? ๐Ÿ˜€
Okay! I shall speak in Chinese the whole time that I am there. ๐Ÿ˜€


Or maybe Bahasa Indonesia.



ANyway. ๐Ÿ˜€ Just saying.


Where do you envision yourself to go?

Adaptorsโ€ฆ Adaptorsโ€ฆ Adaptorsโ€ฆ


That is obviously a photo taken in Singapore.

But I realize, you see that plug thingy on the right. Its more than just an adaptor, its more like an extension to people like this shop owner and even people in my household.

We don’t use it to so much convert a different countries’ plug to a local plug, *okay, we do the 3-pin to 2-pin thing, but erm..

hmmโ€ฆ i brought the suited-for-Indonesia adaptor over, but guess what, my kettle and hairdryer cause the electricity supply to trip. So damn tripped that its not just within the apartment, the electric supply was “cut off” from the mains itself. :/


anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad I have the resources to pick up the necessary appliances locally. ๐Ÿ™‚

City Resort Apartment

Went by to my colleague’s place for a movie night, so nice of him to open up his place to us. ๐Ÿ™‚ sure helps the new me to adjust.

And you know what… I was so whinny. ๐Ÿ˜€


They have food stalls and lots and lots of convenience stalls and what nots at the surroundings!!!!!

and the blocks and set up feels so much like SG.
and majority that lives there, the Indon residences are Chinese!!!!!!!

*Zua Kuang!!!
I’ll be like so much more adjusted if I’m there. :/

But, I still appreciate my room, just need to introduce a fan and I think it will be so much better.

And well, in as much as I don’t have as fantastic food stalls downstairs, it sure helps me to keep my figure the last I ย check. ๐Ÿ˜€

Go google City Resort Apartment Jakarta for more info ๐Ÿ˜‰

2nd Sunday

It’s a Sunday!!!
My first Sunday alone.. ๐Ÿ™
At least last week I have iris who came by to visit
Thank you iris!!

But anyway, ๐Ÿ™‚
Sunday, both doors open, let the air flow through legs stretched and blogging. ๐Ÿ˜€


I missed blogging, or at least the way I used to blog, with the photo flood, adrenaline,
Can’t quite do that now as the speed is unsatisfactory and I could have done much things else while waiting.

Anyway, doesn’t stop me, cos I realize, blogging keeps me mentally sound. Seriously.. Like the release of ideas. Getting thoughts out. Knowing that I have people reading the blog. And even if they didn’t understand about enough, they are still here and hopefully it does enrich them.

So while others suggested for me to go visit places and you know distract myself, I realize, I’m really not the adventure and go big time, site seeing person anymore.
Or at least I got through that and am not super excited about that.

I prefer the cafe, tea, look out the window, listening to other people’s life experiences kind of person.
That keeps me going. That makes me feel happy.

There used to be a time when I asked myself why am I not with the crowd that’s staying out late into the night talking crap, laughing at random chats and I now understood why not.
Cos I am not like that.
And there is absolutely nothing wrong with it.
I am just me.

The one that takes care of myself, that I sleep enough, that I know what matters to me, that does not have to conform.

But of course, I do sweat and work out. I do watch my diet, I am still very aware of myself as a complete person. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am still healthy, I am still,

Mini Bus

I took their mini bus today!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, just for the new experience lar huh,
It’s like the cheaper form of traveling here,
That short distance I travelled..
You know what, taking a cab is 10times more expensive than the bus!!!!!!!!
It’s like 2dollars vs 20cents

And so you get the tired face, the man smoking in cabin and of course, looks on people’s face that goes kinda “wats this expat doing on the bus.” “Wait, is she an expat or is she a local Chinese?”


Featuring… The tired faces!!!



Okay, shots inside the bus





Shot of the bus


and my colleague from the Philippines Ms Carla


And yours truly. ๐Ÿ™‚

So PM Lee was saying what’s stopping SG people from progressing is the people’s reluctance to relocate.

I know why..
cos I’m kinda experiencing it. ๐Ÿ˜€
Alright, maybe not it’s entirety, but rather living and working alone overseas.

Hmm.. I wonder how it is if its the whole family..
So the husband gets busy bringing the bread home at work,
Parents try really hard to get their children into a good school (good is really subjective isn’t it?)
The wife, is she versatile enough to handle the situation?
Where to go get groceries besides malls and hypermarket? There’s no more convenience stall downstairs, or a quick hawker bite you can get (at least at where I stay). What about work? Her ambition, how she was? if she chose to be a housewife, can she handle the home-maker life?
Will she morph to become the typical TaiTai of that country?

A well, that’s the beauty of humanity, the ability to survive, the ability to want to want to survive.

Thankfully for me,
Got a colleague who took me to the nearby “Shop and Save”. (Yippie! I can get apples!)
(but as she suggested, “far” or “near” is subjective. ๐Ÿ˜€ its a 20min walk to the location by the way. ๐Ÿ˜€ and a wet market thats about twice the distance away.)
(which is like the exact opposite in my neighbourhood back in SG, wet market is less than 10mins away, that supermarket is about twice as far away — wet market is closer to me)

Took me on a small bus ride, which is like the small version of SBS n TIBS buses, (although they have that and even a lane for those buses)

And really after looking around at a couple of colleague’s place, I really think those problems are relative.

Yes, we don’t get the usual conveniences like do in SG, yes we don’t get the Internet speed and erm.. we are different, but I think after the initial, I might just be in love with the pace here.

I think a SG that is sick of the rat race would be very comfortable here.

BUT BUT, I still love my Singapore.
Where I belong, where I left my heart and soul.
And of course my mummy and daddy.

And my friends..

And my bakerzin..
And my fish soup noodles
And my..
Okay whatever they are replaceable.

I think ultimately, when one is debt-free, pocket full of cash, work on the right hand, shelter on the left hand, no strings attached, everywhere is good.


Live and let live ๐Ÿ™‚
Slowly slowly, sinking right in.

From GALLUP Business Journal:

Self-Assurance is similar to self-confidence. In the deepest part of you, you have faith in your strengths. You know that you are able — able to take risks, able to meet new challenges, able to stake claims, and, most important, able to deliver. But Self-Assurance is more than just self-confidence. Blessed with the theme of Self-Assurance, you have confidence not only in your abilities but in your judgment. When you look at the world, you know that your perspective is unique and distinct. And because no one sees exactly what you see, you know that no one can make your decisions for you. No one can tell you what to think. They can guide. They can suggest. But you alone have the authority to form conclusions, make decisions, and act. This authority, this final accountability for the living of your life, does not intimidate you. On the contrary, it feels natural to you. No matter what the situation, you seem to know what the right decision is. This theme lends you an aura of certainty. Unlike many, you are not easily swayed by someone else’s arguments, no matter how persuasive they may be. This Self-Assurance may be quiet or loud, depending on your other themes, but it is solid. It is strong. Like the keel of a ship, it withstands many different pressures and keeps you on your course.

I think…
Ultimately, self-assurance is sexier than sexy. More secure than confidence. Keeps one alone but not necessary lonely. Makes those who possess, attractive to those who dont.

N one ponders, is tt the yardstick of a complete person?
Does that then write off the need for companionship of a person?
Do 2 self-assured person make for a perfect relationship?


Was discussing with friends and continued the intellectual debate with myself (yes, my brain is very busy ๐Ÿ˜€ ) and I kinda gathered something.
I think while we seek companionship, it is not like needing that companion to complete ourselves.

Its more like in every phase, in every societal setting, they are multiple roles that needs to be fulfilled in-order for the phase to be considered as whole, completed.
That being said, you need two whole persons, or self-assured person to be in a relationship.

Aint got no perfect relationship ladies gentleman. Because you can perhaps get a self-assured person to back down and come to an agreement, a compromising situation in-order to be on par with the other self-assured person.

Whatevcr the ho, whatever the hey, it is important to be open, and be whole as a person at the same time.


two very thick topics put together. ๐Ÿ™‚

Home (Part 1)

When I get my new house, it shall be of high floor. because after a long day at work, going to a home with a view feels much better than going to a home looking at people’s kitchen. perhaps that would make the day’s effort worth the while.

Was walking to the mrt station from office the other day and happen to notice the lights of one of the room in Hilton Hotel lighted up.

And that got me thinking, how good it was if I were to go home to a view at the end of a hard day’s work.
That would most certainly make the long day’s work worth the while.

Or at least a view that allows the eyes to wander far, not into other people’s kitchen.

Not really so near to the sea, because the light reflected would be too glaring…

Just good enough for me to see far and out…

P/s: my next trip overseas (multiple days holiday), it must b of a hotel with a view

An introvert’s holiday

Hello~~~~ I’m out on a trip again-~~

‘cept that this is a short trip and to assist ppl

I think one of the things I enjoy most being on overseas trip is being able to stay in the hotel room and watch tv. Not exactly about theirย  local program’s, but rather more about the English movies I can find. ๐Ÿ˜€ it’s like watching movie at the movie theatre, but more luxurious than that. I get the whole hotel room to myself and I can buy whatever snacks and fruits I want at the local convenience shop. Pillows, and bed sheet, temperature to my preference volume control and all that jazz.

But I think more than that, it’s really about the whole relaxed feel that opens room for reflection and really opportunities to think. Such creativity and to certain extend deep thoughts, are reflection, is at it’s best when one is relaxed, perhaps at peace and able to generate more a complex and meaningful thoughts and connections.
Had one from the movie Last Song while I was out in Bangkok with friends.

Okay, that’s two whole paragraph and I have yet to get into the point of this entry. ๐Ÿ˜€ i would think theres two parts to this entry, one is on the movie and the other is on being an introvert.

Let’s do the introvert one first since its a little shorter. (okay, after inserting all the extracts from the video, its not that short afterall. ๐Ÿ˜€ )


I came on this trip with a colleague, have a common purpose, not so much about leisure and travel.
So he has his plans, and I can’t really be bothered about making prior arrangement.
Both bcos I don’t really have friends here and I’m not really a shopping person,
I’m more keen on staying in the hotel room and you know, sleep, slack and watch tv (as describe above).

So comparing between my colleague and me, I’m effectively an introvert.ย  Cos he’s running around meeting people for business, meeting associates and networking, while me? I do my work from the hotel room and spend more time in the hotel room, way more than supposedly a person who’s on holiday would.
