NINETIES

"If you've never jumped from one couch to the other
 to avoid the lava, you've never had a childhood."


So many beautiful memories rest in the 90's, bringing back moments of simplicity and joy. How sad it is that kids these days are stuck inside with screens glaring into their eyeballs. Days of playing princesses roaming the gardens certainly bring back some sweet memories (though I really have polar personalities even as a child because I was also that tomboy who threw live snails onto bitumen with my brothers). And who better to share these reminiscent moments with than my childhood babe Jiaxin from The Food Enthusiast. You may recognise her from one of my previous articles: Brunch Babe. We recently caught up with one another again and thought why not take advantage of our time together: another photo-shoot moment it is!

AISHITE IMASU

"私の放浪の日  My wandering days
愛しています I love you"


Aishite imasu is 'I love you' in Japanese. And I do love you Japan. I love you for being able to momentarily satisfy my obsession with wandering around in unknown cities. I had high expectations for you because everyone who has had the pleasure to get to know you have told me how amazing you are. And I'm glad to say you have not disappointed. Like every stranger who has been blessed to meet you, I have fallen in love with you too.

GOLD & PROMISES

"I love new years. I love the fact that I'll be leaving a whole
year behind me, no matter if it was good, bad, or average.
I like that kind of closure. I love this feeling of starting 
over again and having a fresh year ahead of me,
 filled with new chances, new experiences." 


There is only one person you can truly rely on at the end of the day, not to criticise those who have stood by your side at times of despair, but the person that is always there time and time again is yourself. There is no harm in investing in those around you too, but never overlook the importance of investing in yourself. If there's one thing I can take with me from 2015 into 2016 and onwards it'll be learning to love others without losing sight of loving oneself.

OH BROTHER!

Here's to the weirdest, rudest, but wisest
and funniest human being I know... 

 
One of my biggest inspirations is not some celebrity, but someone closer. With full credit to my parents, especially my mother for being the perfect, intelligent, loving female figure in my life, I'm sending gratitude in an unusual direction this time. To one person who has never actually heard sincerity in my sarcastic voice before: my older brother.

I'm sure he knows how much of an influence he is to this annoying younger sister of his, but I think my readers deserve to hear some of his inspiring thoughts that I have been so lucky to be surrounded in day in and day out. In all fairness, it is inspiration clouded in the wrangling, in the head-locks, and in the stupid insults received daily. So no need to thank me for filtering through some of his rudeness to present to you some highly valuable words of wisdom.
