    I got a dehumidifier for my bedroom recently after I discovered mould spots on one of my Hermes bags. I have always use dehumidifier packs from Daiso/Nitori or thirsty hippo equivalent from Guardian/Watsons over the years and apparently those are not enough. I even went to Shopee/Lazada to get a small desk electric dehumidifier and even that is insufficient. It’s only when I discovered mould spots on my Hermes Evelyne 29 bag and I have to send it for spa for mould removal that gave me the final push to buy a huge electric dehumidifier for my bedroom. Thank goodness Hermes do spa the inside of the bags if it is an anti-mould treatment locally in Singapore!

    I have been contemplating to get a huge electric dehumidifier for many years but never actually get it. I guess it’s a blessing in disguise that the mould appeared on my Evelyne 29 bag instead of my Constance 18 bag, especially when they are both stored next to each other in the same wardrobe compartment that had mould issue. I didn’t see mould when I was cleaning that compartment a few months ago. :sad:

    I got the EuropAce 6251S after many research. It has a capacity of 25L and is designed for bigger spaces like living room and has a laundry mode. I got it for my small bedroom because I also want to use it for laundry during rainy weathers. Singapore weather have been crazy recently and humidity levels are at 75% to 90%.

    So far the dehumidifier seems to be working well after I use my hygrometer to measure it. It’s down to 40% to 55% as long as I close the door. It can go below 60% even if I open the door. I’m glad that it is working well since it’s cost me S$619 which isn’t exactly cheap.

    May the mould issue resolved before my bags are back from their spa.

    I haven’t been blogging as much as I thought I will be. Kind of like wasting money to maintain the domain and hosting though but I am not ready to give all these up.

    I saw someone I knew from a dating app many years ago. It was awkward because my ex-colleague was trying to introduce him to me (vice versa). My current colleague was with me too. It was a work conference and I registered for the free pass. It was really awkward and that guy basically left hurriedly which my colleague felt it was weird. Then I told her that I knew that guy from a dating app super long ago. Obviously we didn’t kept in contact but he seems to remember my name. Probably not how I look like since he walked towards me when my ex-colleague waved at him to come over. I guess it’s super awkward to meet someone you met in dating apps long time ago.

    Moral of the story: don’t meet someone who is in the same wider industry as you on dating apps because you will never know if both of you will cross paths again. :stressed:

    My YouTube music playlist have some old songs that were released in 2015. 2015 seems so long ago since now it’s 2022. I have definitely gained weight, gained stress and gained more savings as compared to 7 years ago. I wish I didn’t gain weight though. :sad: I have become older and changed multiple jobs.

    Back in 2015, I was still in my first job. Now I am on my fourth job. What a difference 7 years has made.

    Do I still like the songs I like back in 2015? Yes. Will I listen to them again? Probably not as much.

    The year is ending and I feel like I have not done much this year.

    Didn’t manage to pass my GCP Cloud Security exam hence have to retake again 2 weeks later. I have been working hard for it for months and didn’t understand why I will fail it since I can answer most of the questions. Oh well.

    I hope I can do more in the new year and gosh, I need to stop slacking. :stressed:

    Today’s my last day of my 3-day off days. I took 3 day leave from work as I was feeling burnout but now I feel like a kid, dreading when the “school” reopens. Haha. Back to work tomorrow and hope things go well.

    It’s important to take breaks sometimes to prevent burnout after all.

    I cleared 1.5 courses for my GCP Security certificate preparation. Still got 3.5 courses more to go. :sad:

    I also finished the “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?” korean drama too and had a haircut at Walking on Sunshine. Don’t think I will be going back to Walking on Sunshine for haircut next time. I miss my usual hairstylist, Mikhaela. She went back to Korea and relocated to Australia in 2019 after her marriage. Oh well. She’s the only hairstylist who knows exactly what I want for my hairstyle. I haven’t found a hairstylist as good as her so far. Elin from Zinc Korean Hair Salon is the closest to her standards. I think I will just stick to Elin next time. Although it’s a bit expensive to keep going to Zinc Korean Hair Salon… :sigh: Oh well…

    Nevertheless, I’m loving my new haircut even though it is not the usual style that I prefer. Well, there were some miscommunication with the hairstylist and I. Oh well.

    I also went to try Eggslut with my boyfriend and the egg burger he ordered is better than my bacon burger.

    I’m looking forward to my next break in December. Time to start counting down!
