Turning Twenty

"Life is all about relationships. The greatest gift you can give to someone is your time."
– Rick Warren

I am truly blessed to have my these girls in my life. They are my best friends, soul mates, sisters in Christ. These girls have seen my through thick and thin, encouraged, motivated, comforted and loved me to no end. Even if life were to turn sour, I know they will always have my back.

An incredibly satisfying dinner at Shin Kushiya, JEM. I've never been a huge fan of Japanese cuisine but their cold Soba noodles and grill selection were AMAZING. Even as a relatively budget diner, I highly recommend this place because what's on your plate deserves every penny. Promise!

Nigel is really camera shy so I grab every possible opportunity to get shots of him. I may sound like a biased girlfriend but he is unbelievably photogenic. (I swear most of his photos were candid or just him dazing into space)

Before I forget, another reason to patronise Shin Kushiya is for an intimate dining experience. I absolutely hate dining in noisy and packed restaurants but at SK, (as a big group) we got a private room of our own. Their regular tables are really cozy too!

Thank you, my friends <3

Blowing out my candles like a boss.

Flowers have always been a love-hate thing for me because they wither so damn fast! Or maybe I am just a horrible flower caretaker. But undeniably, flowers brighten up my day instantly. Just looking at them sitting on my desk is enough. Knowing that school has been extremely rough, Nigel got these sunflowers to keep me smiling. Sweetest guy ever.

I am addicted to these truffle fries by The Riders Café. I literally crave for them every single day.

I enjoy taking a break from work and city life, taking a moment live life at a pace it's supposed to be.

Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur... How can cats be this perfect, cuddly and beautiful?

Favourite brunch combi: Smoked tuna + scrambled eggs + toast + iced Latte.

The love of my life whom I have known for more than a third of my existence. He makes me smile everyday.

To be honest, I don't really know what to feel about entering my twenties. I can't believe how fast time goes by. Everyday is passing by swifter than I can make sense of. I can barely recall what happened a week ago but that's okay, because relationships are all that matters at the end of the day. If I could only share one thing which I have learnt so far, it is to cultivate meaningful relationships and let go of those that are toxic. Nothing is more precious than the unexplainable trust between you and your pals. You cannot choose your family but beyond that, relationships are what you make it. When I am on my death bed, I want to be reminded of how much my friends have loved me when I didn't deserve to be. Here's to a life time filled with love!
