14 March 2014

My mum took leave so that we could go down to my lil’ bro’s sch to celebrate his 13th birthday!
He’s all grownup now, taller than all of us in the family.

Here’s a quick shoutout to all the BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE who choose to teach at special schools:
YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING. 
They are patient, loving, caring, devoted and dedicated. 
 I mean, of so many professions, they choose this one. 
It’s really not easy, and thank you so much!


Picture

SO PROUD OF MYSELF TO MANAGE TO GET THIS GOOD PHOTO OF HIM.
Since my mum is on leave, I get to lead the taitai life!
EAT AND SHOP ALL DAYYYY, 
COULD GET USED TO IT.

Picture

Can you guess where I’m going for lunch?

Picture

Marche! // Calamari rings, Rosti with pork sausage and Mushroom soup :>

Picture

The holy dessert section that we failed to conquer :
After a filling lunch, we went shopping!

Picture

Went to Royal Sporting House to try some sports bras; really liked this one but I bought another one instead because this cutting was too tight on my shoulders.

Picture

My mum sponsored me this big black hat, finally got my hands on it!! From F21 for $20 heehhe (: // On a side note, my friend couldn’t recognise me in this. BEST DISGUISE.

Picture

TEA BREAK AT 5PM, my mum finally got to try Paris Baguette. // Latte, their new Mango puree milk drink, Sweet Bacon roll and a white chocolate bun.

Picture

Bonjour.

Founder’s BKT

I’ve seen Founders appear on the Lists of best BKTs in SG 
and there’s always a queue when we drive by.

Picture

In my opinion, NOT worth the wait and the rave. I didn’t mainly like the sides because the peanuts weren’t the canned salty type which I love and the youtiao wasn’t crispy enough :/

Mosaic Music Fest // Charlie Lim

As you guys may know, 
I first heard Charlie at the SEA Games Launch Party. 
I was totally blown away by his voice and when he said “Come for the Mosaic Fest?” 
I’m like hell yeah.
HE’S A LOCAL SINGER, GUYS WE MUST SUPPORT OUR LOCAL TALENTS OKAY.

I don’t know how to describe him, 
but he sings with so much soul.
Love, angst, frust, a longing, a wishing, a wanting. 


Picture

$10 deals at Barossa for Mosaic Music Fest ticket holders! Pretty good food I must say

Picture

My sponsored dress from Acorism!

Thank you Kim for accompanying me :>

Was in the front row :> Look at the beautiful man do his thing

BITTER IS MY FAVOURITE SONG:

Lately Iʼve been sleeping alone on my own again 
Just me in an empty room on a single bed 
Iʼve been trying all this time just to see 
All the reasons you had given just to leave 

Why am I so bitter about you babe 
I donʼt understand 
Was I trying to cash in the fantasy without the reality check 
But I never wanted you to lie to yourself about happiness 
When all you were was just a little lonely 

Latching on to love like a moth to flame 
But what are we gonna do when the embers start to fade 
I donʼt mean to mess with the master plan 
But when you put out the fire Iʼll just start it again 
I guess Iʼll have to keep my distance for your defense 

Pull me out of focus keep me in the queue 
Iʼm a tired lover wilting hours in the waiting room 
Embrace the silence when thereʼs nothing left 
You got no room for demons when youʼre self-possessed 

Why am I so bitter about you babe 
I donʼt understand 
Every time youʼre out in the sunshine 
And Iʼll just sleep through it 
But I never wanted you to lie to yourself about happiness 
When all you were was just a little lonely 
And all you wanted was the company 

Whyʼd you let me go 
When you still wanna know 
How much I care If Iʼd still be there 
Whyʼd you set me free 
If you need the sympathy 
Come as you are 
My tongue is undone 

Was I spoilt for love 
Have you had enough 
Wait out the danger 
You donʼt have to ask 
This maudlin moment 
Will soon come to pass


Happy Mookata

I’ve been wanting to eat Mookata in SG, ever since I had it in Chiangmai last March in 2013,
so I did my due diligence and found Happy Mookata!

Then I dragged my Team Tae along hehehe. 


Picture

Wore my new loafers from J West out :>

Picture

at Golden Mile Tower!

Picture

Eat all you can ala carte buffet for $25.90/person!

Picture

We always laugh so much when we’re together

Elffin & Elffin // Gallery Cafe

Headed to Haji Lane yesterday despite the rain to source out some independent fashion labels
for the new series on Jump The Cut! 
It’ll be called Look Reel and we’d feature all these local brands and local designers. :>

While on my mission, 
we decided to take some refuge from the rain in this quaint lil cafe.


Picture

The paintings on the walls are by local painters, hence it’s like a cafe cum art gallery! New paintings will be put up every month, while the old ones would be put up for sale. All the paintings are pretty neat!

Picture

Got myself a hot cup of Vanilla Latte

Picture

The new bimbz on the block.

Picture

Was quite sick of being dressy so I decided to be a lil cray in my outfit yesterday.

GETTING REALLY PISSED OFF AT UNI APPLICATIONS, 
TALKING TO PEOPLE MAKES ME WANNA PUKE
I JUST WANNA STAY AT HOME AND HIBERNATE UNDER MY SHEETS FOREVER 
OKAY BYE
Continue Reading

Eat, sleep, rave, repeat.

It’s been a while since I shared about the food I ate and things I’ve been up to. 
Idk, I guess I was busy and also because I didn’t really feel like blogging about them.
But still here you go, the usual recount. 

Griddy Gourmet Waffles

Last Tuesday, 
my sis told me she was having E-learning and so she had no school and wanted to go out for something nice to eat. 
She didn’t wanna travel too far, so that she still had some time to study. 
Therefore, we thought like all other west-siders and headed to JE. 

Jurong East is amazing now, with 4 malls. 
Westgate and JEM are like town compressed into two buildings, 
which is uh-mazing. 

I let her choose what she wanted to eat and we settled for Griddys. 

Griddys is at B2 of Westgate, and looks really humble.
Nothing fanciful whatsoever, 
but that translates to cheaper prices for consumers as well.


Picture

Location photos taken from Griddys FB as I failed to take nice photos of the place when I was there :/

Picture

Look at how happy she is to take a break from studying and get a food treat.

Picture

A close up of her waffle burger which is darn good because the meat is really moist and fresh and I love the mushrooms and the waffle and the waffle fries. Practically everything, $8.90

Picture

Tried the fish & chips and it was pretty decent too for its price. Portion was more than I could handle :>

Picture

If you need even more motivation to check the place out, they have lunch promotions!

Picture

Go #getgriddy with their glorious waffles!
Remember to tag your photos with #gotgriddy on insta for a chance for your photo to be featured!

Westwood Bowl

After a nice chit-chat with my sis, 
we parted ways.
She off to studying and me to meet my neighbours for bowling. 

It’s been ages since I bowled.
But WestWood Bowl at Bukit Batok Civil Service Club still remains as the place to go, because it’s cheaper compared to other bowling alleys
and it’s nearby home.


Picture

The rates for your reference :>

Picture

I was quite tired and everything, but I managed some good shots amongst many horrid ones and enjoyed myself as a whole.

Girltime

I always appreciate girl-time 
because well, I don’t really have much girlfriends. 

Bellowellow wanted to try Griddys after she saw the photos on my insta 
and so I brought her there on Friday.


Picture

Mandatory OOTD shot

Picture

Manda Panda and Jia Jia Panda and our super big panda friend :>

Creamier

Finally made my way down to try this raved place!
It’s such a small shop omg. 
SQUEEZEY especially on a Friday night.

Picture

My glorious waffles with Earl Grey Lavender ice cream, yummmm
I wanted to go look for The Grub at Bishan Park
and I really did make my way down. 
BUT WE COULDN’T FIND THE PLACE???
So we just sat around in the park to enjoy the scenery and night lights and talked. 

Saturday

Went back for Clinique work again, 
but this time deployed to town. 

Picture

Tangs has really nice toilets hahah
After work,
my parents picked me up and we headed to Copthorne Kings Hotel for my bro’s early birthday dinner. 
We always eat at the Copthorne hotels cause we’re members.
Even I have some ala carte card which I never use
After dinner, I headed home.
BUT WITH AN AFTERPLAN IN MIND.

ZOUK

The main reason to go was because DJ Aldrin had a set at Velvet;
and he was so good during the SEA Launch Party. 
But in the end, I didn’t get to hear him spin.
NONETHELESS, Alvaro was awesome to spin Tsunami ^^

AND THIS TIME I ONLY TOOK A FEW SIPS OF DRINK
SO THE NIGHT WENT WELL. :>


Picture

Thank you Jose, JY and JJ for introducing me to your family.

Picture

So much rave.

I still went to work the next day, 
even though I didn’t even sleep.
I don’t get to sleep after clubbing
because of the light that comes along as the day breaks
and the increasing noise levels as morning comes. 

Plus, how could I sleep well after hurting someone because I was unclear about who I was bringing along to Zouk?
But thanks for still choosing to let go and keep the friendship
and even bringing me Starbucks at work. 


Wild Honey and Pat & Stick’s

Met my Belly so that she could settle some uni stuff 
and then we went for some good food :>

Picture

The European, loved every bit.

Picture

Next time you pass by The Providore at the Mandarin Gallery, you have to get one of these Pat and Stick’s ice cream sandwiches. IT IS HEAVEN.

Picture

Belly, you deserve to smile every minute of your everyday.

Soon Huat BKT

I headed down to Bedok 
in an attempt to eat at Simpang for dinner. 
JJ and I got so lost EVEN THOUGH HE STAYS IN BEDOK HE HAS NEVER BEEN TO SIMPANG
?!?!?!!?!?
But we settled to try Soon Huat BKT. 

It’s a social enterprise
for the boss had spent time in jail and is now a changed man. 

BKT amazes me, 
because the style of preparing it is always different;
depending on the dialect.

Like there is the peppery type by the Teochews (which I usually eat and thus prefer)
and also the dark sauce type by the Hokkiens.

The one by Soon Huat belongs to the first, 
and I like that there are golden mushrooms in it :>


Picture

But be warned that the preserved vegs are VERY SPICY, as quoted by JJ. I didn’t even dare try
Sigh,
my parents were kicking up a fuss again though. 
About how “late” I was coming home. 

It’s so suffocating. 
I don’t even wanna talk about it. 

I wish they would care less sometimes. 
or maybe I just wish they would let loose and actually live.

International Woman’s Day, the fight for equality

International Woman’s Day (IWD) is celebrated on the 8th of March every year.
Since 1911. 
It has been a long 103 years,
that women had to fight for their rights. 
But the world is still unequal. 

Scary isn’t it? 

When will women stop being viewed as weak?
As incapable of authoritative posts. 
Come on, who disciplines the kids at home and brings them up? The mother. 
So don’t even try to tell me women don’t know how to exercise authority when need be. 
Even women emotions can be useful at the workplace. 
Women understand the needs of other women much better, thats for one. 
Two, I’m sure women can set up great social enterprises with their motherly natures and big hearts.

When will women be more than their flesh?
Was watching 300 this morning and my heart broke when the queen had to offer her body to the traitor in order to get a favour to save her king.
We hear stories all the time, how women in the line of sales or the entertainment industry, have to sleep with men to climb up the ladder.
We watch documentaries, read articles of prostitutes telling us about their typical day 
and I hate that. 
Women shouldn’t have to be put in that kind of situation. 
We shouldn’t have to be submissive to the greed of men, their whims and fancies, their lustful desires.

When will women be treated with respect and honour, as of men have for centuries?
One of the reasons why I am glad to be on board with Jump The Cut is because,
they are putting together a predominantly female team. 
Very few companies have a female voice, and I’m glad JTC wants to be different. 

I’m just sick of GUYS thinking I’m a “stupid, dumb fuck” just because I’m female and because I gave way to them cause I like/love them. 
Like there is nil basic respect and many guys have insufferable egos. 
If you think you’re that good, *claps* the door is right there, go eff yourself. 

But of course, before we ask others to treat us with respect and honour, 
we females must first treat ourselves with respect and honour.
Know that we deserve great things, don’t short-change yourself.
Know that a good guy will respect your time, your opinions, your ideals;
honour not just your body but your whole self as well.

Also, please please chase your dreams and ambitions.
Many girls are labelled as bimbos who only blog/shop/instagram/cafe hop. 
But I think when women have dreams, and fight for them; 
that’s when guys know we are serious with our stuff. 
And they’d respect you 
because well you’d prolly have achieved a lot more than they ever had. 

I hate it when someone tells me “Just find a rich man and get married.”
So, all you think I am capable of, is to be his hand accessory and live off him? 
My mum has taught me since a young age, to be an independent woman. 
To earn my own keep.
I mean, people leave right?
What if you get a divorce? You’d have nothing to your name, 
Plus, I didn’t study so much just to be a taitai and rot my time away yknow. 
I should be worth more than my ability to bear children and raise kids. 

This is also why,
I’ve never been the type to ask guys to buy me things. 
Idk I seldom get my parents to buy me things either. 
I’d just save up and buy them on my own. 
I don’t like the feeling of having to beg and I’d much rather rely on myself, 
then wait on someone to buy me something. 

This year’s IWD theme is “Inspiring Change”,
and I just hope to stir some feelings. 

“The day will come when men will recognize woman as his peer, not only at the fireside, but in councils of the nation. Then, and not until then, will there be the perfect comradeship, the ideal union between the sexes that shall result in the highest development of the race.” - Susan B. Anthony

“Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, “She doesn’t have what it takes.” They will say, “Women don’t have what it takes.” - Clare Boothe Luce

“The way in which we think of ourselves has everything to do with how our world see us and how we see ourselves successfully acknowledged by the world.” - Arlene Rankin

Cool websites to check out

Today, I’d like to share a couple of cool websites with you guys!

Including new sites to shop at, 
new places to get freebies (hehe, auntie mode on)

The Social Bacon

The Social Bacon allows me to:

  1. Pick and choose from their huge range of items to construct my Top 10 Favourites list
  2. I can then share my picks over social media platforms 
  3. which allows friends to shop seamlessly online through TSB

This is great because we always need a second opinion whilst shopping, don’t we?
I really hope you trust my taste hahaha

So, I get to create a store front that looks like this: 


Picture

Heheh, my cover photo is from my recent photoshoot!
And these are my top 10 favourites, (for now)! 
Featuring both male and female items to be fair alright! 
You can get really great steals like backpacks for $29.90 and even pretty maxi dresses!
So let’s say you’re interested in the Beige Backpack, 
you click on it
and you should see something like this:

A very user-friendly neat interface for you to shop without a hassle!

Select the colour
and then the size 
and click Buy now!


Picture

You would then be transferred to your shopping cart, essentially known as “Your Bag”. You can also see the many payment modes avail!

Picture

Fill up your billing and delivery details; I love that it autofills the address for me once I type my postal code. HEHEH #lazybum
As a frequent online shopper and blogshop owner, 
I would encourage registered mail;
especially when you really love an item 
or if your item is expensive. 
You really wouldn’t want it lost in the mail right?

Picture

Lastly, you are ensured that your payment will be made securely.
And then hurray,
new items through the mail :>

// Be a Merchant
These days, there are tons of young entrepreneurs out there with blogshops
& so you can join TSB as a Merchant as well!
With influencers choosing your items as Top 10 and sharing on their social media, 
I’m sure it will drive much traffic to your store!

(Once my blogshop is restored, I’d be sure to use TSB to promote my blogshop as well!)

Do note that TSB is still in their beta testing stage, 
so do put up with them and show your support alright?

Sample Store.com

Monday’s thoughts

Sushi Bar @ FEP

Do you know what this means?
ANOTHER TICK OFF MY CHECKLIST, 
HURRAYYYYYY!

So glad to finally check out this raved place, 
was supposed to come here with Kim the other day, 
but thanks Jiet for making it happen today. 

The place only opens at 12.30pm 
but there was already a queue when we arrived about 12.25pm. 
Guess good things are worth waiting for eh?

Picture

It’s a small cosy place, and you can see the special recommendations on the board if you don’t know what to order!
But me being a very hardworking foodie, 
I researched the night before and already took note of what was good to order.
Picture

Chawanmushi goodness, $2.80
Picture

Salmon Sashimi, $6.90. Super thick slices of fresh salmon.
Picture

Salmon Aburi Roll, $13.90 for 8 rolls. The wonders of aburi is that it’s half cooked, so it sorta just melts in your mouth. :>
Picture

Sirloin Steak, $13.90 for 100g. Really interesting dips, with crispy sides and soft beef, yum yum in my tum!
I was kinda upset that I didn’t get to try the Tofu Cheesecake and the soft shell crab aburi roll :/
But overall, I ate well. 
Picture

A candid shot of me taking photos of the food, heheh. // Love my Rocket Volume mascara from Maybelline, really works right!!

After our food, we shopped around because Jiet is looking for a card holder.
Did I miss out the word “branded”?
So, this marks the first time that I, Amanda Yong, walked into LV and Gucci. 

Never been a biggie on brands, 
like I guess they really are more durable.
But heck they are expensive
and I don’t have that kind of money
and I don’t ask my parents to buy me such things. 

Anyhow, I’m so thankful I look glam today.
If not, I don’t even think LV and Gucci will open their doors to me

Check out my OOTD 

Picture

Mega ultra love this jumpsuit from H&M, so worth my $39.90. The V-cut is filled up nicely with a statement necklace and I chose one from Statement Muse, love their accessories! To elongate my look, I also put on my really high nude heels, which caused me to trip many times. Whoops :
We caught Non-stop at Lido;
the show was in Lido 1 and the theatre was HUGE AND EVEN HAD LIKE A MINI-STAGE?

The movie was like kinda meh overall; 
didn’t have a real peak or so. 
But well, guess who’s gonna be paranoid the next time I fly in April. 

What I liked about the movie though, 
is seeing how people cherish and live their days to the fullest. 

How Julianne Moore chooses the window seat so that she can get a good view if her heart acts up 
and suddenly dies.
& How Liam Neeson tries to continue to live his life, 
through the smoking and the drinking; 
and to do his job well and protect the people, and the little girl that reminded him of his daughter.

I remember a character from a book, who eats dessert before her main course, because she’s afraid she might die before she got to dessert. 
I know that sounds a little extreme, but to me; 
I think that’s all about seizing the moment. 

“But you grab a moment or you let it pass.”

Too many people play games,
guessing games, 
waiting games, 
games to test each other,
when will they end?

Only when the other is so far gone? When it’s too late?

What is the purpose of acting cold when you actually care?
What is the purpose of hiding what you feel and guessing each other’s intentions? 

Don’t tell me “to wear your heart on your sleeve, you have to vulnerable and so I won’t be so stupid to do it.”
My dear, to experience love, you need to be exposed to the possibility of a pain that is going to be worth it . 

Do you not realise that with every test, 
you tire out the person’s genuine heart?
You suspect 
you pry, 
you probe
you jump at every little mistake. 
There is no perfect person, this earth is teeming with flawed human beings. 
Take your pick or be alone. 
// Okay I’d continue with this train of thought at the end of the post.


After the movie, 
I headed to SMU for a short rehearsal and run through for the JTC event this coming Wed.
Really excited to gather interesting ideas for films 
and to be on set once more!

Will let you guys know the link of the video once its online the very next day!


Cafe Mondo @ Orchard Central (BOO :// )

Wanted to get some ice-cream before heading home, so we made our way to OC. 
Decided to try Cafe Mondo which is at Orchard Central, level 2.
This place is hard to miss, since it’s just beside the escalator. 

BUT THE FOOD REALLY SUCKS.

1) The Mushroom soup was really really sour and awful
2) The Cheese fries weren’t very heated up and the cheese was just like cheese slices melted over the fries. 
3) The ice cream tasted low-quality and like tap water

ONLY THE BROWNIE WAS MOIST AND NICE :<

Picture

We got two scoops of ice cream free cause we spent like $20 but ewww bleh.
Picture

Don’t be fooled by this, I just have good photography skills. HAHAH WHO AM I KIDDIN’
Just don’t bother with this place kay? 
Period.

Accepting a flawed human being

Easier said than done? 
No shit.

We all know we have flaws. 
We all know other people have flaws. 
We know that we need to find someone who can accept our flaws and love us for who we are deep down. 
and we know that to get that, we must also accept and love others. 

But how do you get about doing that?

We all have a certain ideal in our heads,
a perfect someone that you know you’d fall in love with in a heartbeat.
Maybe you’d never meet this person, 
but well, 
in your imaginations, you have met him 1 million times or so at least.

For me, 
I’ve long imagined me sitting at a cafe,
book in my hand and a cup of cuppa.
And this guy in a white shirt, clean, decent faced;
walks over and starts talking to me about my book. 

I think there must be a certain something,
about guys that read. 
That they would understand how books create another world,
often which is better than reality,
that books are teachers, 
reminders, 
companions, 
friends, 
lovers. 

We would talk about characters as if they are real, 
about stories we would write, 
about cliche books and not so cliche ones,
and we’d laugh about silly things over his book and mine. 

For a while, 
I wanted to indulge in this ideal.
To hold on to the hope that maybe, 
this day would come and I would indeed meet such a person. 

I have prepared myself though, 
that things may not be as rosy as I expect. 
Like the guy I meet might be attached, 
or might have a personality problem. 

But still, I wanted to give myself time to wait on this guy. 

// Now though, 
I have new thoughts. 
I see the beauty in a genuine heart. 

Like how can you still find it within yourself to be picky/annoyed when you receive a sincere note with grammatical errors?
Yes, I see the flaws, but may I cliche-ly insert;
you realise you don’t mind. 
Because you read between the lines and realise, 
hey this person actually bothered for one, 
and two, decided to still write this even though they know English isn’t their strongest point. 

I think in this world full of suspecting hearts, 
sincerity is hard to sieve out. 
Take time to validate someone and their intentions,
but recognise acts of love/care when you receive them. 

With that said, a gentle reminder that love is a strong word, 
don’t use it loosely.

I need someone to pour myself into. —Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Alcohol, the stem of trouble

Alcohol officially sucks.
Especially when you don’t know your tolerance. 
I puked for the first time because of alcohol and it sucks big time.
Like I became the burden I told myself I’d never be. 

Spent the whole of yesterday hungover as hell.
Like I puked again in the morning when I woke and in the afternoon. 
I couldn’t eat much or drink even.

Woke up with crazy bruises because I rmbr falling flat from a chair


Picture

My swollen upper lip

Picture

Forgive me for this unglam shot but look at the bruise and swell and blood. My bottom tooth is like slightly chipped, you can’t see but I can feel it.
Sigh, I’m showing you guys all this because 
YOU NEED TO KNOW THE UGLY SIDE OF LOSING CONTROL DUE TO ALCOHOL ):

Picture

Took 10 shots on friday night, no surprise why I died

Picture

Well, at least flat tummy after all the rounds of puking.

Picture

Sorry I give you problems everytime we party <3
Everyone, please drink responsibly. 
Especially for girls.

Thankfully for me, I was taken care of.
But yknow, please take care alright all you party animals 


IT Show 2014

So, I worked for two days of the IT Fair as a Canon Selphy Girl
and I pretty much liked it.
You get a lot of attention as long as you’re not dressed in  a company tee with makeup and heels yknow?

Picture

My fellow auntie Selphy girl :> Really enjoyed working with you!

Picture

My dear 11:11 couple, all the best for work and hope you guys earn a lot kay!

Picture

Of course, being a Selphy Girl entitles me to take endless selfies without being judged. (I think the headband makes me look pretty cute right :>)

Picture

Winking bunny :>

Picture

He knew I didn’t sleep the night before and got me Starbucks to reward me for working hard! yay thanks for the surprise.
Warm-up selfies before work on day 1
Overall, work was okay
just had shitty eating times.

I hope the commission will be good though?
(yes I don’t even know the commission rate yet damn it)


Eggs and berries with Bellow

Met Bellowellow for brunch on Wed at JEM

Complimentary Creme brulee that was served in a little glass egg, how adorbz.

Girl’s night out

On monday, I went for Canon training.

To learn more about the Selphy CP910 Printer that I would be selling at the IT Fair. 

For $179, you get the printer, 54 pieces of photo paper and the matching ink.

It’s pretty good,
light and compact
and would allow you to print photos in the comforts of your home!

You can also send photos through the WIFI function directly from your phone.
The photos dry instantly,are smudgeproof and waterproof and can last for 100 years :>

Available in white and black

Can even print ID photos!
After which, met my dear Val at Vivo city to catch The Lone Survivor.

I quite liked it, although the men in it really damn suay?
Like just when they thought help was near; 
the whole plane was bombed up by the Talibans 🙁

But it made me realise
that while people are out there fighting real wars;
here we are in comfort whining about the fights we have within ourselves. 

Everyday people fight for survival, for their lives;
and you being the more fortunate,
are you not gonna cherish every minute to be happy and do something significant with it?

They fight so you can live.

Dinner, I think the broad noodles taste better. I find the soup kinda oily tho.
We shopped at F21 and I got 
a pair of white crotchet shorts
a pair of jeggings for $13
and a crop top.

Also got some accessories from lovisa :>

Supper at The Wine Company; Sentosa’s broadwalk is so romantic. Truffle fries, Crabmeat salad and Rissoto

Me answering a call from my mum; she made me cab home cause it’s late. But it was like 11ish only.
Anyhow, 
I enjoyed the time spent with Val.
I enjoy girl time because it’s rare and precious. 

But I’m meeting more girls now and I like it that way.


Jump The Cut

If you follow me on other social media,
you’d probably have seen me mention JTC before. 

I’m excited to start a new journey with JTC as Resident Host
and I’m more than honoured that Ernest, JTC’s founder, is willing to give me this chance. 

WHAT IS JTC?
Well, it’s a company dedicated to help film-makers. 
Film makers often face funding problems and have issues reaching out to their target market. 
JTC wants to create a platform that not only brings film makers and film lover together, 
but is also a place where film makers can raise funds for their film through crowd-funding

Crowd-funding is basically accumulating the funds needed from many people instead of getting the whole sum of money for a single person. 
Like $1 from 300 people is gonna be more manageable than $300 from a single person.

Filmmakers can upload trailers of their film and explain why they want to make it.
If you like it, you can support their film through a small donation, to bring their film idea into reality. 
You’d become like a stakeholder in their film. 

My role?
To make JTC look really cool
JTC wants to be vibrant, happening and cool.

We wanna take the industry by storm, 
bigger than the next big thing. 

We’re gonna be uploading interviews, reality shows, short films
AND IT’S GONNA BE GLOBAL. 

JTC is now in the process of hiring and putting together a predominantly female A team.

Innovation fair @ SMU, 5 March 2014

This is gonna be our very first event, 
as SMU has funded JTC as an enterprise. 
JTC would be roving around the area with live cameras;
interviewing people
and getting people to take part in our activity.

We will be handing out old movie tickets,
with a small part that you can tear off and then stick it on a wall.
You are to write a film idea on the ticket 
AND WE WILL CHOOSE THE MOST INTERESTING IDEA
AND FILM IT IN 1 WEEK.

COME JOIN IN THE FUN ALRIGHT? SEE YA THERE <3 😉
