Staycation: Porcelain Hotel

Dec 23th: I was off on a thursday as usual which happens to be Christmas eve. I really wanted to be off on Christmas itself so I’ll give myself a more valid excuse to reward myself for braving through 2015 without grandma and finally, with a stable job for the time being. Eventually, I figured out on staycation for myself at a cozy boutique hotel, which I only booked on the day itself.

I packed my bag and stuffed my laptop in and headed to work as usual and during lunch, I used this app called “HotelQuickly” to book my desired hotel. This app allows you to book 3-5stars hotel at a super duper low price because it allows hotel to clear out their rooms than to leave the rooms vacant and earn absolutely nothing, meanwhile, we get super good deals out of it! WIN-WIN!

Apparently, checking in wasn’t so smooth as I expected it would be, as the app seems to have made an error in the check-out time. It was stated 2pm as check out time for the app but when I was checking in, they told me it was 12pm. After a series of calls and confirmations, I finally manage to get it all resolved. PHEW. Not a very pleasant booking for the first time.

There was this huge chinese porcelain decor that greeted me when I entered the lift. I was totally in love with it, somehow it made me felt like I went back to grandma’s era. ❤

Tadaaa, this was my tiny little room for the night! It was sure tiny but I love how cozy it is especially the room was all white! I’m a sucker for white so yeah. Plus the headboard had secret compartments to a drawer, a cupboard with hangers plus even a high stool!

Just a very simple bed with two little pillows (I needed plenty of pillows and requested for 2 later in the night.).

This was my favourite little area in the whole entire room. I love the beautiful basin which is a huge porcelain bowl and the mirror with the porcelain chinese designed plus it was able to light up! Too pretty for a mirror. 😀

This was the bathroom, it’s super small a two in one of a toilet bowl and rain shower area. Nothing much to rave about except that when you are showering, the toilet bowl gets wet.

This was their little card holder. I thought I would be able to be assigned to the blue room with the full glass bathroom which would be super spectacular, but turns out that I got a plainly average designed room. MEH.

SO they had this lovely boxed up amenity kit that consist of toothbrush, comb, shaver and shower cap. I totally adore that box design! ❤

Another selfie for myself, you know that the problem with hanging out alone, having staycation alone is that no one is able to take photos of you except to resort to selfie… that’s super annoying though. Anyway, I really had an awesome night spending some quality alone time and to have an advance Christmas celebration with myself. First time that I’m doing so than to be spending Christmas eve alone, crying and missing grandma. I feel happier and I think she will be glad too.

Anyway, stay happy and I hope you readers too, have an awesome Christmas with your love ones! Cheerioos~

(Gotta think about my new year resolutions soon~)

怎么那么麻烦的呢?

男生… 他们总是说女生太粘人了。

女生们老是无时无刻得在他们身边。

我便只需要见他们每星期1-2次面。

男生… 他们又说我太冷了。

难道就不会想念他们吗?

想。但忍,因为有期待才会珍惜在一起的时光。

男生… 他们说女生让他们没空间呼吸。

女生们不让他们做喜欢做的事,如喝酒健身…

我便让他们把好友排我前,只要遵守见面的约定。

男生… 他们又说我不关心他们。

难道就没把他们放在眼里?

你喝酒我担心,你把朋友当优先,我无所谓。

只有一个字“信”。

我相信,我是在和一个人谈恋爱,不是捆着只小鸟。

我相信,只要心里有我,即使不常见,只要天天都有某方面的联络。

我也可高兴。

我就是那么简单,就是那么信任人,容易就能满足了。

可男生怎么都不明白,老是说我冷,莫无关心,甚至有些还怀疑我背后还有其他男生?

这简直太荒谬了,粘人你们嫌,给自由你们怀疑,我到底该怎么做在是好?

(或许一个人的世界才是最美好的…)

Unveiling my pole videos!

I know it’s gonna be a really big and bold decision to unveil all my pole videos to you guys. I know I might gain criticism, jokes or being laugh about. It’s ok. It’s my learning journey and I think I’ve improved really a lot from an absolutely weak and frail two left feet to the current girl who can do an invert. I’m proud of my achievement and I think I can do better.

My Meipai Pole Channel

(Just click on the link…)

I’m using Meipai to upload my snippets of my pole videos and practices and the just-for-laugh videos because it’s really easy to upload via the app on my phone and I love how I could edit my videos easily, like adding filters or songs, cutting and trimming.

And if you guys are always wondering why do pole girls wear so little?

We wear little not because we want to look sexy or seductive or to attract those unwanted sexual attention. We need the skin contact for grips and friction so that we won’t fall from the pole. Our waist, our inner thighs, our armpits and many other parts provide grips for various different moves and as we advance along, the tricks gets harder, so does our attire, gets shorter. Haha x

Damage Done

Dec 18th: The rest of my loots from Taobao finally arrived. It’s been like forever since I made my order on 65daigou.com, and tadaaa, I bought like 4 yoga tops/sports bra whichever you would like to call it for my pole class. Previously, I have been alternating the two plain and boring ones, now finally I have more options and choices! And I totally adore that stripped x-back one as it’s Lululemon inspired!

As for the two bottoms, they are from Forever21, I’ve been trying hard to find a high waist denim shorts that could fit my super-hard-to-find-perfect-fit bottom, and I finally I found it (cause i have this bottom curvy, my waist is small and my hips are super wide…) . Spend like $20 plus for the bottom and I think it was worth it. And I’m not ready to get the super ultra short pole shorts so I got myself a grey yoga shorts… cause I’m still a beginner-intermediate in-between levels for pole.

Month of december is forever the month where I’ll splurge on what I’ve save, because there’s sales everyone and there’s so much stuff that I can’t take my eyes off. Haha x

Staycation: Peninsula Excelsior Hotel

It was October and it’s gonna be Siru’s 21st and so we decided go on a staycation so that we could have some girl’s time and a place to surprise her! With a budget of $200, we went ahead and book this affordable Peninsula Excelsior Hotel, which was located in City Hall (3mins walk from MRT) and walkable to distance to Clarke Quay or Timbre. 😀

Checked in around 3plus as I was late and managed to get the Excelsior Tower which was slightly nicer furnished that the Peninsula Tower.

Then, putting down all the stuffs and my bag, I took the bus to Somerset area to pick up the matcha 1/2 kg cake that I ordered before heading back to the hotel to get the decos done. Thankfully, I manage to get Felicia’s help when she came around 4plus and we got subway and ate while we decorated the room.

IMG_7725

Ok, I gotta confess that I brought like 8 balloons and I burst 5 of them while blowing the balloons. This is such an embarrassment. HAHA, but anyway, the decor still turn out well! WOOHOO~~

It’s was just a very simple celebration for her with a not-so-fancy cake, La Terre White Zinfandel and Barcardi Strawberry Daiquiri and some domino pizzas for the 4 of us.

HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY my dearest SIRU! ❤

I hope you’ll start adulthood with a bang, and may your wishes come true and 祝你早日找到你的如意郎君,让你不用再羡慕别人的爱情道路了。:P

(Please don’t kill me if you ever read this, because I truly meant it from the bottom of my heart 😀 )

IMG_4357IMG_4362IMG_4361IMG_4359IMG_4360

Cheers to adulthood! The youngest among us, Siru, finally turned 21! 😀

Birthday Cake Review: I got this matcha cake from Tripleone Somerset, it was just a small little baking shop that does only online orders. I can’t remember the name but the cake is good, I have to admit. The baker was generous on its matcha powder and there were little azuki beans in the cream if you could spot which was nice but I wasn’t a fan of azuki beans. HAHA. But the girls love it anyway! ❤

After which, we decided to head down for a night swim or rather should I say chill? Because Siru and I couldn’t swim and Felicia did not bring any swimsuit haha.

Thanks Felicia for taking the photos for us. But oh wells, I’ve been teaching the girls for a synchronized pose but it failed badly. 😦

The night lighting at the pool was pretty bad as well to take a really nice photo so we didn’t stay in the pool for long. We went back to the room to get dressed and headed out to Clarke Quay to get some drinks and ended up at Crew Room, Felicia and mine former workplace.

Later at night, Siru was complaining she was tired and sleepy so she went back to the hotel alone after we send Felicia off to the cab because she had a curfew. Yunteng and I went for a walk along the river and spend some time catching up as I hadn’t had time to meet because I was so caught up with work at Bikini Bar.

After heading back to the hotel, I went straight to the bathtub and prepared some super nice bubbly bath!

IMG_7822

I know I’m an absolute sucker for bathtubs and bubble baths because I spend like nearly an hour in the tub! Because, nothing beats better than a hot tub filled with thick bubbles and some sweet wine to go along! (Ok, minus the alcohol part because I drank quite a fair bit already…)

The bathroom was a cluttered mess but still thanks Yunteng for the photos because I’m always a happy girl when there’s bubble baths! ❤

Before we checked out, I went back to the pool to get some day time shots. I love how the pool has this glass panels for those who could swim and dive, you could really get some cool underwater photos which I couldn’t.

Till next time.. 😛

 

Cooked: Porridge

IMG_8842

Dec 8th: Today’s the 2nd day that I’m on mc. Had a bad sleep which resulted in a neck strain and to a shocking discovery that I have 2 lumps on my neck. Went to the doctor’s and got prescribed with some antibiotics that caused me to have bad skin allergy and they are super itchy. OMG. No scars please. Anyway, I don’t think the 2 neck lumps are caused by infections for enlarged lymph nodes. Hopefully, they won’t be tumor though, as I’m going to have a scan in late Feb.

I went grocery shopping after the doctor’s, and decided to cook some porridge to warm me up since it was a cold and rainy day. I miss grandma’s cooking. That familiar smell. Makes me miss her even badly. Anyway, it’s not a fantastic fanfare but just something simple that she would probably cook for me as well. I made some congee and added some white sweet corn to it. (I love corns!) Some xiaobaicai stir fry with oyster sauce and chopped garlic, minced meat with shimeji and bought off the shelves DO-DO ready-to-eat ngoh hiang which I heated up. But no matter how hard I try, my cooking will never taste the same as hers. SIGH.

I can be a coward at times…

Maybe I have become less brave in love.

Maybe I have become less courageous.

Maybe I’m just trying to protect myself from getting hurt once more.

When options come, and I’m stressed, I’ll end up choosing to give up on everything because I’m afraid to make the wrong option again.

I’m apologetic for giving up on you and choosing him, and ended up he chose someone else. I’ve hurt you.

But when I was drunk, you’re always there for me, send me home or trying to keep me awake by texting me.

You’ve never mouth a single word or scolded me at all, for what I did. It just simply make me feel a million times worst.

I know there is no turning point now.

I’m just afraid I’ll make the exact same mistake like the past, making the wrong choice and hurting the nice guy.

I’ll rather hurt myself and give up.

I wonder when will have the courage to trust and risk my heart again…
