This post is dedicated to my lovely bf, who checks my blog every other day despite me updating so irregularly.
Some boring updates first.
1. I have finally completed my studies omg. Contemplating of taking Masters (lol ikr, hardworking) but that will definitely have to wait until I work and save. Although my journey with Kaplan and University College Dublin was not exactly an arduous one, it hadn’t been easy either. It was mentally straining and my opinions have clashed with a few of the lecturers’, who think only they are right. Some lecturers were lovely though – especially the local ones. :) Only they understand the culture in Singapore (although my class consisted of 80% foreigners [but then those foreigners also a bit sg style when it comes to school]).
2. I have applied for a few jobs that I am damn excited about, and only hope any one of their acceptance. Won’t be posting here as I don’t wanna jinx it and it’s really quite private. If you’re my friend, ask me personally. (LOL like anyone will ask)
3. Nick and I applied for a BTO that will be ready in early 2020 (or maybe earlier?). Yes, he hasn’t proposed but we know that we are gonna stick with each other forever.
My parents know about it and have been supportive. They like him a lot, especially my Momma hehe. I am glad to have found a guy who plans for the future… I didn’t even think of it. I told him we should work hard and just buy a condo without having to wait and he wisely turned my ideas down and applied for a flat instead. Hahahahaha. After looking at the downpayment of condo units, I gotta say he made the right decision.
What makes me appreciate him even more (other than his character) is how committed he is to our relationship. Many guys fear commitment. Many office guys have a penchant of flirting and always want others to think they are single so that they can “look out” for suitable partners to flirt with EVEN IF they are attached. I worked in 2 offices and although for short periods of time, I could tell.
Back to Nick. He ain’t rich, but dotes on me like a King pampers his Queen. I know some girls are attracted to rich guys, which isn’t wrong truthfully, but to me money is really nothing in a relationship. Sorry if I sound like a saint in this but guess I really am. HAHA. It’s okay if a guy isn’t rich, what matters is his ATTITUDE towards his financial status. Not rich? Upgrade yourself, work harder, or be content. Do not complain incessantly. 沒有錢不要緊，可以一起賺。
A few weeks before exams, I was stressed out by assignments and Nick offered to bring me to Bangkok after my last exam is completed.
We flew by Thai Airways, which was an awesome experience. Don’t wanna take budget airlines liao :X Thai Airways is not very expensive btw. And the service was impeccable. AND THE MEALS WERE ACTUALLY YUMMY. AND FREE ORANGE JUICE
This trip was intended to be a relaxing one (duh. Right after exam leh. Don’t wanna plan this plan that). Actually, all my trips are like that cos I am a spontaneous traveller… I don’t like to visit touristy attractions at all. Disneyland? Once is enough. Chatuchak? Hell no. I am a city person. I like shopping malls and I like air-conditioners. We didn’t eat a single thing from roadside stalls (although they smelled very yummy) cos my brother had it before and ended up with food poisoning. D:
We stayed at Glow Pratunam for 4 nights. The bill was $500plus.. Can’t remember, not the one who paid hehe. Lemme do a short review:
Hotel Room: NOT carpeted, much to my dismay. Huge though. The mattress and pillows were ultra soft.
Service: Staffs were helpful and polite. However, after a lady delivered our room service dinner one night, she actually answered “not free” when we requested for her to bring a bucket of ice. Probably our fault for not saying it earlier, but that answer took us aback. If she was not free, she could have offered to ask someone else to do it… or reject more politely?
Location: It is opposite Platinum Mall and right beside Pratunam Market. We actually chose this hotel cos we thought it’s nearer to Siam than the previous one we stayed in (Amari Watergate). Well, by distance, it is nearer, but you can’t cut through the river to walk there. So we have to walk past Platinum Mall and CentralWorld still to get to Siam. Very troublesome.
Overall, I largely prefer Amari Watergate in terms of everything. Will definitely stay there the next time in Bangkok.
I simply love Thailand (or rather, Bangkok since there’s the only place in Thailand I’ve been to). The only thing I hate is how the cabbies never turn on meter in cabs. I can’t say it’s a ripoff though, since the quoted prices are still much cheaper than they would be in Singapore.
Went to a cat cafe for the second time in my life. This was at Purr Cat Cafe Club, located at Soi Sukhumvit area. Nearest BTS station is Thonglor, 6 stops from Siam (towards Mo Chit). Took a cab there from hotel and it was 101 baht (SGD4).
The cafe’s food and desserts were unexpectedly delish. We had 2 main courses, 3 desserts and 3 drinks for SGD52. (yes lulz I had 2 desserts and 2 drinks to myself)
The cats were all well behaved and mostly sleeping or mooching around. It was lovely that the cafe wasn’t crowded at all… There were ample space for people to play with cats. Very hygienic as well.
We spent 3 hours there, naturally. It was fun to eat and have a random kitty come up to you. :D
I couldn’t bear to leave. So was Nick. Lol.
This cat kept coming to my bag cos I attached a pompom keychain to it.
Love the look of flat faced cats!
Hello Kitty cafe, located at Siam Square One. Sweet die me.
My sweet tooth is slowly diminishing. I don’t really like sweet stuffs anymore I feel.
Couldn’t finish both the Candy Cheese Cake and Rainbow Mille Crepe.
Went to After You for the Shibuya Honey Toast and the both of us gagged halfway; it was TOO saccharine sweet!
At our favourite cafe, Greyhound cafe in Siam Center. It’s not expensive, probably around SGD40 for 2. Food was great leh.
There was a night in the hotel when after I surfed the web on my phone, I turned to look at him and he was fast asleep. Like an angel (to me hehe). I lay my head on his chest and heard his heartbeat clearly. Dub Dub Dub
That was when I knew I am truly contented in life to have my loved one(s) healthy and happy. Like I don’t even want new bags anymore.
That was also when I knew I found my soulmate in life. (Actually I knew long ago but have to make it more dramatic) I want to be with you forever, and only you.
My Thai Airways dinner. YES that’s potato salad with SALMON. The chicken was flavourful and tender. Portion was just nice. And one can never say no to an airline which provides entertainment like Dracula Untold, The Hobbit, Interstellar etc.
THANK YOU MY DARLING NICK FOR EVERYTHING <3
