10 things to do/get before I hit 35

Well I’m only 21 so there’s still some time for me:)

1 GET A PROPER DIPLOMA AND DEGREE

I flung my O levels badly due to some medical issues and stopped my diploma half way due to financial difficulties but I’m definitely getting a diploma at least as soon as possible.
I need to work and save up whenever i can in the mean time.

2 LEARN TO COOK YUMMY CHINESE  MEALS

I’m better with western-ised meals but my husband prefers Chinese meals. Am gotta learn from my mother in law when Jo starts play group hopefully soon.

3 GO FOR GUITAR LESSONS

I’ve always wanted to learn how to play a guitar since secondary. Didn’t have the opportunity up till now. But will probably try to as long as my financial status allows me to.

4 BEING MORE THAN A MOTHER TO JOSAEUS

Don’t be fooled, its not as simple as you think it is. There’s always a reason to everything. Till date,I can remember all those memories I had with my father when I was young. why?  he always made exciting and adventurous plans for our weekends instead of just staying home or go shopping like most parents do. Also, my father taught me many things in life be it practically or emotionally. I want to be like him to Josaeus.

5 BAKE LIKE A PRO

I love baking and eating but the cost is so high! Plus I don’t have a supportive husband. he never supports any of my interests:'( really heart broken but I’ll still do what I love. The day I’ll bake for Josaeus to bring to school on his birthday.
ah.. So heartwarming just thinking about it.

6 REGISTER JOSAEUS FOR A INSTRUMENT/MUSIC CLASS.

I read somewhere that kids who play instruments are smart and quicker to react. Also, it’s very therapeutic to the mind and soul. So why not? * I personally prefer guys who can play the guitar or piano!

7 GO AUSTRALIA

Why Australia?  Well, it has many geographic locations I wish to visit! Also there isn’t a language barrier which makes life alot easier when travelling.
Africa,America,Japan too. But doubt le husband will want to go:'(

8 GET A CAR

With the current COE going sky high its impossible for us poor peeps! Please go lower in years to come!!

9 GET A 4 ROOM FLAT.

Currently we’re only getting a 3room due to financial restrictions. I really do hope to get a 4 room flat and probably in the east in future. Been a west side-r all my life.

10 START A BUSINESS

Le husband and I always had a thought of owning our own business. No further thoughts till we get our own finance stable.

So yup, these are my 2 cents worth of things I wanna do before I hit 35. Hopefully I’ll fulfill them before I die.

* do note,  all these are not in sequence!

Ah, these thoughts really got me thinking again.. All of it needs quite some money.. Makes me feel so sadden.

Whats your top 10?

Happy women’s day

Women’s strength

March marks the month of international women’s month!

“the story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organisation but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights” Gloria Steinem

I can definitely relate myself to “equality”. I have siblings so it’s pretty much quite obvious and now that I’m married I still do see it here at my in law’s. Not surprised as it happens everywhere especially with older generations around.

Not many will admit or even REALISE their actions and will definitely fight back. So just live with it I’d say.

Why make yourself so hurt with thoughts that don’t exactly matter?

Well I use to mind alot myself too. I’m probably numb. Still hurts but the hurt numb-ed up. If you get me.

I definitely been thru alot more than people my age. I survived on $200 monthly no extras(my allowance)during secondary school days. DailyTransport fares, meals breakfast lunch and dinner,school outings,extra assessment books,weekends programme and I have only have approx $7 a day to spend on everything). I remember skipping breakfast at recess and lunch to save money for weekends lol.Stopped getting allowance at 15-16 since I started working during school holidays. Lastly, I’m married with a son at a young age of 19. Many people judged me but wait , I single handedly took care my son on my own from birth till date and he’s completely breastfed (direct latch only never bottled). so why judge?

Josaeus(my son) is 22months this march and I’m proud of him and myself.

Couldn’t believe I could be mentally able to go thru all these but I sure did.

I’m strong in my own ways and that’s what matters.

Happy women’s day
