Geck Keat, Gulabi and I had a photoshoot session before Gulabi flew off to US in late April. We went to Victoria Concert Hall area to take photos and it turned out to be quite a good location to take photos.
I didn’t really upload the photos on social media except for the one below.
If any of you got a chance to visit Singapore, Victoria Concert Hall area is definitely a good place to take photos. It’s Sakura’s recommendation. Hahaha.
Oh by the way, Victoria Concert Hall is considered to be relatively new since it just completed its renovation works.

I guess an overseas trip serves as a good break. It helps when you are sick and you are forced to sleep early and adjust your lifestyle. It kind of makes you want to adopt a healthier lifestyle so that you don’t fall sick again. Partly because the feeling of being sick simply sucks.
It also serves as a good reflecting point about your life as well. I guess that only works when you don’t travel that much – which is the case for me. I aimed to have a personal vacation (not business trip or whatsoever) once every 2 years but it seems like the frequency is higher than what I would have expected. Well, I went for personal vacation in 2012, 2014, 2016 and then now 2017. Not sure if I want to go for personal vacation in 2018 though… But I am already thinking of going somewhere this December… Like whoa, 2 trips in a year?!
Well, I am not a light packer and can be quite yolo when it comes to spending overseas. That being said, I still keeps a budget and tracks every single expense I made overseas.
I went to Hokkaido with a 14.5kg luggage and came back with a 23.6kg luggage. Technically speaking, I have exceeded my limit by 0.6kg but thank goodness the Jetstar Japan staff just labelled it as 23kg for me. I bought 3 bottles of Muji toners, 4 Fancl/Kose cleansers and tons of food/snacks. That probably contributed to the increase in 9.1kg.
Coming back to Singapore and meeting my friends to explore Singapore (and its various events) kind of kept me grounded on who I am. Sometimes I feel lost but it helps to have friends who reminds you who you really are. On the other side of the coin, that can also mean that you may not break your invisible boundaries in life and explore the uncertain dimensions in life. I guess I will have to find the intricate balance and embrace life as how it comes along. I sometimes wonder what life has for me in the next few years…
On a less philosophical note… What I learnt about this trip is that I can trust my new GoPro Hero5 to take nice wefies and landscape photos with its ultra wide angle view. However, I still need my Sony NEX-5R to take high quality shots. I don’t really want to take both overseas in future so I guess I have to decide what I want to bring next time.
I know I haven’t been blogging much and I still have lots of personal backlogs to clear. Actually, I also have quite a bit of work backlogs to clear, as well as personal career backlogs too.
I guess I signed a bit too much for myself.
Part time postgrad, full time job, violin, songwriting, blogging, social media (mainly Instagramming), checking out the latest fashion trends, classical music, pop music, handicraft, English calligraphy and many more to name…
Okay, it kind of scares me now after I listed the major items. I am still trying hard to keep in contact with friends and also talking to my bagels from CoffeeMeetsBagel too. Well, if I have to give up something in my life, I guess those bagels are the first one to be given up. Especially those mouldy bagels (guys who are insulting or not interested to meet or we are are just chatting and it doesn’t led to anything such as meetup).
I met Shang Ya last night as she has a Hello Kitty calculator that she would like to give me. It is also a good opportunity to just meet her and have a really quick catchup. Glad that I met her and she seems to have gotten back to her usual self after her traumatic breakup. What I really envy about her is that she can sustain her lifestyle (not sure what is her lifestyle exactly though) without working. I guess she is still earning money through investment but it is nice to have more free time and do the things you like. I doubt I can have that kind of lifestyle but perhaps it is time for me to think about investment to get a better life for myself in future?

I have also went back to songwriting class and also met up with my university friends. We literally sat at the restaurant for close to 5 hrs just to chit chat. I’m really lucky to make such friends who are making effort to meet up every month and can still chat nonstop too.
