New Years Eve Outfit

A PC311891

This New Years Eve, I decided to be a little more adventurous with my dressing a little bit. Honestly speaking I used to think using bandanas as part of accessorising is a joke. But after knowing a bit more about styling and fashion, I had a change in perception.

So I finally wore my purchase from ASOS. The oversized jeans that I bought a size smaller but still managed to fit my ass into it. Hahaha!!! I was trying to get the hobo vibe because of the bandana that I was tying on my head yet I still want to keep it simple. Thats why I wore a plain white t-shirt and a white outerwear for the overall slouchy look.

For shoes, I wore the Adidas Superstar that my friends gave me for my birthday this year. Till now I only wore like 2 - 3 times cuz I cannot bear to see it get dirtied. :((

Sinpopo Brand

When was the last time I really sat down and write about my visit to a café or a restaurant?!?! I decided to write about this particular one is because I really like the food and aesthetics about this café. How it came about was a few weeks before I visit this place, I was doing my duty in camp with one of my army mate whom I really considered as a REAL foodie. He loves exploring places in search of finding good food. So as we were resting I asked if he has any recommendation for good food for friends to hang out and chill. This was when he whipped out his phone and showed me some of the places via instagram and google (THANK YOU INTERNET) where he considered to have quite prominent food.

Once we reach the shop I was greeted with signs and nostalgic feels. The place was a mixed of local and western vibes. The staff there was kind enough to explain to us the varies of food available and recommended some of their best selling items on their menu. Well for me my main purpose was to go try their Nasi Lemak set for 2.

Looking from their menu, Sinpopo's food creation is mostly ideas from our Singapore's local delicacies with a bit of modern western twist to it. For instance, the Nasi Lemak is served in many different plates instead of lumping everything together.

I was so excited when it came to our table. They have Har Jeong Kai Wings, Sambal Ikan Bilis, Potato Wedges in Curry, Fish cake with Sambal on top, Luncheon Crisps and 2 bowl of fragrant rice with half slice of egg each. Not forgetting, their sambal chili is FREE FLOW!!!

Honestly speaking, my friends and I feel that we could finish this whole Nasi Lemak set for 2 on our own. I mean, frankly speaking the portion isn't really a lot. For us boys la. My friends and I are all big eaters. Hahah!!! After which, we ended off the meal with their Nutella Tart and 1 more cake which I forgot what we ordered already. LOL!!!

That being said, I really enjoyed my visit to Sinpopo. I definitely will be back for the other items on their menu. Till then. :)

Thank You 2016

Its the time of the year where I sit down and really think about what I've achieved. To be honest, because I'm still serving my NS, its hard for me to really do the things that I really want cuz my life is pretty restricted. But nevertheless, lets take a look back at what I wrote in hopes to achieve in 2016.

- To Be Fitter
Honestly, I really think I've become fitter as compared to last year. I mean, I'm really proud of myself that I make it a habit to run 5km after for at least 2 times a week. So... *Pats on my shoulder*

- Travel at least twice this year
Managed to tick this off my bucket least as I traveled to Korea alone back in June and Vietnam with my platoon mates in November.

- Blog more
Sadly I didn't fulfil this cuz everytime when I book out from camp I'll be so tired to even turn on my laptop. Furthermore having to sort out my photos and edit them and crafting out the content that I want to write. Even if I do, its some "CHAPALANG" kind of post which I kinda regret posting them. But oh wells.

- Spend more time with family
Thankfully, army made me so tired that I don't really want to get out of my house. All I want is just to "nua" at home and spend some quality time with my family. This year, I manage to spend my Christmas and New Year holiday with them, so I'm really really proud of myself on achieving this. :)

- Start thinking about what I want to do in life
This is the one that keeps me thinking. Cuz till now, I still don't know what I want. My friend(s) have all asked about what I want to do after army, any thoughts on further studying, etc etc. Frankly speaking, I really don't know...

With 2016 coming to an end, it means to prep myself stepping into adulthood. I can't be living my life aimlessly anymore. For this upcoming 2017, I really hope to achieve something big to be able to make my friends and family proud of me. Also, in 7 months time I'll be done serving my national service. WOOTS!

Looking at the resolutions made in 2016, I'm glad I was able to achieve more than half of them. Hahah. So here's the 2017 resolution that I'm gonna try to achieve and hopefully when 2017 comes to an end, I'll be able to look back and tell myself that I've checked all of them.

- To continue to stay fit and maintain my physics.
- To travel to at least twice again this year
- To keep in contact with all my friends
- To continue to blog more
- To attend more events
- To achieve something great in life

With my 2017 resolutions made, lets take a look back at what milestones I've achieved in 2016. Or rather what are some of the things that happened was worth mentioning. Hahah.

I rarely take pictures with my siblings, if I do its only on my snapchat or insta story that's all. LOL. In the past I was NEVER close to any one of my sisters at all. I felt really distant, I never wanted to change that. But as I grew older, the things we talk about become more as one. Like our mindset and such are somehow on the same frequency. So one day when my 2nd sis say that she wants to bring our whole family for dinner, I was quite surprised. Hahah.


A P2051020

It was one of the day where Joey (@iisjong) announced that she was going Melbourne to study and perhaps staying there for good, so Damien and I decided to meet out with her for a farewell dinner before she depart off for her study.

P/S: Good news though, Joey said she's coming back for Chinese New Year this year, but sadly I won't be able to meet her (or maybe I can)... Cuz I'll be away at another country during that period for my army training exercise. :((



Celebrated Audrey (left) and Mellysa (right) 21st birthday. Thank god 2016 is over cuz these 95's bitches are so over that TWENTY ONE year old shit. My bank account was crying and bleeding for that whole entire year. Literally. Cuz most of my friends are twenty fucking one years old in 2016. LOLOLOL!!!


A P6182715

Nothing particularly special happened in May, but it was jam packed fun in June cuz I went on a solo trip to Seoul, Korea!!! It was scary at first but I believe that this trip has mould me into a more independent person.



The day where all of us were dreading. BRUNEI! It was scary at first thought. But after going through all the sleeping training there, I wouldn't trade away the friendships and brotherhood forged over there.


I was really excited initially when I was shortlisted as one of the finalists for Teenage Gorgeous Social You Challenge 2016. But due to the clashing of schedule with my army exercise, I had to drop out of the competition. I was really really sad cuz I was looking forward to doing the challenges together with Cheow Yi (Cheowster) and Ben (Benvoda). And I'm really happy that both of them came out as top 2.

Birthday month (September). Turned 24. Received presents and lots of love from my friends and family. Can't be anymore grateful.
(October) Celebrated Garey and Grace's birthday. :)


A PB181906

Went on an impromptu oversea getaway with my platoon mates to Vietnam for 4D3N and after that a 3D2N road trip to Malacca. Probably one of the daring things I've ever did in my life cuz I only told my parents that I'm going to Vietnam like a day or two before my flight. LOL!!!

Also, celebrated Jiayu's 21st Birthday and it was CRAYYYYYYY! Hahaha! Never had such a crazy birthday party in my life. LOL!!!



My poly year 3 clique's little princess's 21st birthday. Very well and thoughtfully planned. Everything turned out so perfect as just how Nicole pictured. Not forgetting I get to see some old familiar faces at the party as well. :)

Alright. That sums up my 2016. Hope you guys enjoyed reading it. Hahah.
Here's to a more jolly and prosperous 2017. Happy New Year everyone. :)
