My Shortest Trip to Home Yet

It lasted four days.

A trip back home usually lasted for minimum one month, but ever since I’ve started working, that has CHANGED! My last trip back home around Chinese New Year lasted around 2 weeks- that was still okay. But, this time, it lasted only for four days.

I felt quite bad spending $260 for a four-day trip, but my dad was insistent I come home for the Diwali holidays. Initially regretting the trip, I was so glad that I went for the weekend. The family time, the Diwali ambience, the comfort of my house, the TV, and the relaxation I felt in Bangkok made me realize what I’m missing in Singapore. And how can I forget the cheap shopping!! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to shop much–only one pair of shorts–thanks to lack of time. 

On the day I was to fly back to Singapore (Tuesday), it was havoc. From the hospital to the saloon and to back home finally, my mom and I had to literally run to get back on time so I don’t miss my flight! I’m already missing my family. 😦 

On another note, one good thing is that I’m moving out of my current place by the end of the month to a hopefully better house 😀

Wednesdays

Image

It’s a new day and I still didn’t wake up on time as I wanted to. I did wake up around 7.30 AM, but as usual, went back to sleep. But that’s besides the point. The main thing is that yesterday was a Wednesday! 

In Singapore, Wednesdays are great for all us women. Because it’s LADIES NIGHT! =D Ladies’ Night was definitely something I look forward to in the week back when I was in university because that meant time to head to Clarke Quay! 

But ever since I’ve started working, I can’t remember the last time I’ve been out on the weekday till too late. Not that I mind though. But until yesterday, I hadn’t realized Ladies’ Nights gets us girl some amazing and cheap deals around town. Yesterday, I actually had a free meal. Only because 1) It was a Wednesday and 2) I’m a girl! 

I went to this cute little place near the Singapore River, in Robertson Quay called The Sailors. All ladies get a free pizza or pasta with any purchase. My friend and I both order drinks for ourselves, of course! Haha. However, as much as I enjoyed the breeze, view and ambiance, the service was terribly slow, worsened by my grumbling stomach. Even our bill took time to come! 

The only vegetarian pasta option (out of 2) was pretty delicious and stuffed with cheese. The margherita pizza, on the other hand, was not as great. Overall, my night was enjoyable as I met up with a new friend for the first time properly!

I can’t wait to check out the other places with awesome deals on Wednesdays! This link has quite a few cool places listed: http://www.thehoneycombers.com/singapore/2013/01/ladies-night-bar-singapore.php

Ladies’ night may be sexist and unfair to all the men out there, but … too bad! 

An Introduction

I know an introduction is not so necessary, but I tend to be a bit traditional.

A little bit about me:

I’m in my early 20’s. After finishing a Bachelor’s in Marketing from SIM, I’ve started working at a local firm. It’s been around eight months and I can’t say I’m loving it. I am definitely enjoying it here, but something’s amiss. I’m still trying to find a way to make my life more meaningful.

I tend to ramble on and on, so bear with me =)
