Aaryanna turns 3 today, which also means I've been a mum for 3 years. Time seemed to have passed way too fast. So much has changed in such a short span of time. Sometimes I still wonder if I could have done things differently for her. I have so many apologies & things I want to say to her even though she's only 3.

Let me tell you a few things about regret. There is no end to it. You cannot find the beginning of the chain that brought us from there to here. Do you regret the beginning which ended so badly or just the ending itself? I've given more thought to this question than you can imagine.

"Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."


Thursday, November 10, 2016
I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me. But it's hard to stay mad, when there's so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I'm seeing it all at once, and when it gets too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that's about to burst. And then I remember to relax and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can't feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.

#SeeMyWorld #AchievementUnlocked
It's been a long while since I've actually stepped into an optical shop. I'm so used to the convenience of just purchasing lenses online which saves SO MUCH hassle. Or so I thought.
I went for an eye health check-up, at Foresight Contact Lens Optics Centre, where my optician tried to understand my lifestyle & vision correction needs. He did an accurate vision measurement & prescription, and comprehensive eye health assessment as well. 

Personally, I prefer wearing coloured contacts as they enhance the look of my pupils. Even when I knew that I had astigmatism and knowing that coloured contact lens doesn't help rectify it I insisted on wearing them just because. I always found myself buying coloured lenses with higher degrees so that I could "correct" my astigmatism, which resulted in my eye health and degree deteriorating.

I went there wanting to try the new Acuvue Oasys 1 Day Lenses after hearing so many good reviews about it, but after much discussion with my optician we decided that the 1 Day Acuvue Moist would suit my eyesight needs more. Thank God he was so patient and understanding when I kept asking questions and could not make up my mind! :|
Since my contact lens had to be customised to my eyesight (Becos my astig is really super high) I was told to go home and wait for their call before coming back to get my lenses. I went back 2 days later to collect em'. They also gave me two additional pairs of lenses which I was told to tryout first just incase I didn't like it. 
Each box has 30 lenses, but since both my eyes are of different degrees I had to get two boxes. 
On days when I don't feel too vain or when I'm just going to work, I put them on and well... basically forget about them. Just about 15 mins ago, I totally forgot I had lenses on and started rubbing my eyes... So yes, it is THAT comfy you won't even know it's there!

1 Day Acuvue Moist For Astigmatism retails affordable at $69.00/-

Kudos to 1 Day Acuvue Moist for being the lens that keeps up with my demanding days!

Here’s to the starry nights and careless freedom, to glowing smiles and flushed cheeks, and laughter that heals you deep inside.


Monday, October 24, 2016
One day it will all start to catch up with you. 

Every ended relationship, 
every tear shed, 
every broken heart. 

You pick up the pieces, 
you brush them off 
and you put them back together. 

Only each time you need a little more glue. 
Then, just like that, glue's not enough anymore. 

The cracks, the holes, the shattered dreams - they're become a part of you. 

Try as you might, 
you can't fix what's been broken; 
you can't mend what’s been torn. 

You're down trodden, pathetic, unable to go on 
...or so you think. 

Then he walks into your life with a smile, a whisper and a kiss, & you're no longer broken. 
Your world of gray becomes a little brighter, a little more colourful. 
The more time you spend with him, the more complete your once fragile, shattered heart becomes. 

Until one morning, you wake up and just like that, you're in love and the grass is greener and the sky is bluer and the past ...is the past. 
You are no longer consumed with regret, remorse or pain. 

Yet in the back of your mind, in the depths of your heart, one thing lingers ...fear. 
Fear of what you're risking, fear of going back, fear of being broken again ...this time, forever. 

Then he smiles and says those three words you've been longing to hear and nothing else matters.


Nights like these

In between sleep

Wednesday, August 24, 2016
My mind knows what my heart
continues to ignore

I'm tired but I can't find sleep

Lost, between the hours of 1AM
and 3

Restless under the same moon as

Thought this was something really interesting and really wanted to share it here.

So a friend of mine is in New Zealand right now and he chanced upon this super cool machine where you get a poem printed out randomly at the press of a button.
I think it's such a cute idea!!! Why don't they have this in Singapore??? :(


See how it works here:

My Gym (Buona Vista)

Friday, August 19, 2016
Aaryanna's term at My Gym (Buona Vista) is finally over - Why do all good things have to come to an end? :(

But then again, we had such a memorable experience with em'.
My only problem is that it is a little out of the way for us and they don't have later classes for her age group.

Scrolling through the pictures alone just makes me smile.
How adorable are the kids?!?! *Squeals*

My Gym has an extraordinary program and facilities devised to help children 4 months thru 10 years of age develop physically, cognitively and emotionally. Our stimulating program elements are time tested, constantly analyzed and determined to be the optimal approach to build skill, confidence and a positive relationship with physical activity.

My Gym keeps interest levels high with our constantly changing equipment and gym configuration. Each week, when our members come for their class, they find a completely different gym setup and participate in a new class program. The children are fascinated as they explore their brand new setting and are truly energized by their new activities. MY GYM students have a unique experience with every visit, and they love it!

My Gym’s having won US Parents’ Choice Awards time and again demonstrates that families recognize the value of our innovative programming structure that has their children going from one exciting ingredient to another.

Here's a look into how their classes usually go:

1. Hello & Greeting Song
2. Warm up - Getting our muscles ready to climb and play
3. Music and movement 
4. Practice skill 
5. Explore time
6. Adventure 
7. Swings - To overcome their fear of heights and good for their swinging motion.
8. Separation time - A chance for the children to exercise their independence (Away from parents) and interact with each other and the teachers.
9. Clean up song - To sing along and clean up the toys they played with during separation time. 
10. Game - Children learn waiting for their turns when teacher called out their names and working on their agility.
11. Puppetry
12. Goodbye song

All in all, I really want to say a huge thank you to My Gym @ Buona Vista for giving Aaryanna this opportunity to join them. *Blow kisses*
