Syahir let us try his newly bought air sofa and I fell in love with it instantly. I bought it on Qoo10 on that night itself.
Unfortunately,my airsofa sucks big time. It’s not as strong as Syahir’s or Syazwi’s or Haiqal’s. Yup we all are in love with this airsofa thing. Mine is torn! The outer layer gave way. I’m buying another one(same as Syazwi’s). I think i lost my groundsheet.
Can’t wait for another random picnic with them!
Fi’s,Mine & Wi’s.
These are mine 😀
Totally in love with that Egg yolk volume thing but i can’t even climb up!
Yesterday was a productive day for me. Went climbing with Fi & Wi at Onsight Climbing Gym at Mountbatten. I had such a heavy breakfast at McD’s before climbing. BAD CHOICE. I felt like a ball of fats trying to stick on the wall. Total failure 😦
A few months of not climbing and my body feels this useless already. When can I ever start climbing routinely?? Never know when. Work first,I guess!
We bouldered for 1 hour-ish and tried to do high wall after a short break. The lactic acid build up in my forearms were so bad by the second high wall route. Gave up 3/4 way up. Still feel like a failure now. Reminded me of how much I hate to give up.
Happy Birthday to the friendliest and happiest friend I have:) We may not be hanging out as often now but I’ll always remember you as a friend who always speaks the truth. Someone who is so nice that I feel like a villain beside you,sometimes.
Like what that guy in the hospital said to you,”You have light“. Something along that line. Keep on shining,Fi :]
Aren’t they cute? I am so in love with my first 4 herb plants that I bought through Carousell. Hehe.
I have so many goals in life,both small and big ones. One of them is to give back to Earth. I am no Green enthusiast. In fact, I admit to contributing to the destruction of Mother Earth. Wasting water during my morning showers, leaving the electricity running unnecessarily etc etc. So one of my goals is to take care of plants as a way of giving back to Earth. There are so many benefits of having trees and plants around you. Besides calming the mind, they produce oxygen in daylight and keeps the temperature cool. Trees give you shade,guys:) I decided to get Parsley,Curry,Rosemary and Thyme plants because they are my favourite herbs:)
I hope I can keep them alive and healthy! If all goes well, I might just get a few more plants!
Giving back gives me a sense of belonging and purpose. It fills up the empty spaces in my heart. So another goal of mine was to volunteer. Volunteer for anything as long as it helps people and animals. I applied for a volunteering job as a Child Minder at Beyond Social Services. Yesterday was my first ever time as a Child Minder. After 3 years, I finally did it. Finally took the first step to give back to the community. To stand for my beliefs, Education. To start early. To make sure every kid can read and understand what’s written. So as a child minder, i was tasked to engage with children through drawings,books and picture puzzles. I’m going to continue volunteering as a Child Minder for a few more times,and when I’m ready,I’m going to step up and be a Volunteer Reader. I’ve always enjoyed reading to Lower Primary kids when I was a librarian in Primary School. I love to see how happy they are when stories are told to them.
I’m so thankful.
Mom finally talked to me and Sis about her skin problems. Unlike me, both my Sister and Mom have dry and fair skin. I don’t see it as much of a problem comparing to my skin type,which is combination to oily. So Mom asked us about products that will help moisturise her dry and tired skin. Also, she wants to lighten her dark circles. I let my Sister do the talking since she knows best.
The whole family went for a skin product hunt at Jurong Point after a really heavy dinner at Manhattan Fish Market. Sister was so excited about introducing the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask to Mom and Dad. Dad has dry and dull skin too except he’s not fair. Tanned like me. Really tanned. Outdoors people,pfft.
When we reached home, Dad told me that Mom sometimes don’t remove her make-up and just sleep. I was shocked because her skin is flawless to me! Flawless enough! I can’t remember the last time I see a single breakout on her face.She have awesome genes, I tell ya. My Sister got her awesome genes and I have shitty oily/acne-prone/sensitive a.k.a many kachings out the pocket type of skin. So i took my favourite make-up remover wipes(Simple Sensitive Skin facial wipes)and showed it to her. I kinda nagged about how unhygienic she is for sleeping with make-up on(secretly wishing i can do so without having breakouts the next morning). I told her to wipe her make-up off that very instant and she was so amazed by the wipes. Her reaction was so adorable. “Adik,buy for me okay. So easy!”.
I bought 2 packets of Simple sensitive skin facial wipes and Neutrogena sunscreen lotion for my body from Watsons. I felt like I changed Mom’s life into a better one. LOL. I told Dad to always put on sunscreen because he’s always riding. Always under the hot sun. Sunscreen is a must for everyone, even if you spend most of the time indoors, no sun light doesn’t mean no harmful UV rays, people! UV rays exists even at night. Don’t be fooled. I get quite annoyed when people tell me, “Fiza, it’s cloudy,don’t need to put on sunscreen laah”. DUUUUDE.
Some pictures to end this post :]
Mom’s funny face hahaha
A little Wefie while waiting for Sister to fetch us
“Adik don’t take picture,my skin very shiny now”. I still will hehe. And it’s not shiny.
A late post but a post that I must share. Time was on our side a few days back so all of us ladies could meet up for teh sarbat! I was so happy to be around them that night, just felt very emotional about friendships nowadays.
Noi and Liy were discussing about going Vegan/Vegetarian/Pescetarian. It’s for health, according to them. I only have a few vegetarian friends. Noi told us about her friend who was a Pescetarian and now,a Vegan. I was confused with all these diet terms. I think I looked stupid trying to even pronounce Pescetarian. Noi had a good laugh at me(she always does).
Liy’s colleague is a vegetarian and he has naturally blushed cheeks and clear skin. They were into this topic and I just imagined life without Pepperoni pizza and chicken. I can’t. Straight out,”No pepperoni?! How can someone even eat vegetarian pizza???”. I love veggie,but i need ma meat!
This is why my skin is so problematic. I go je on food. Sinful food.
Maybe I should try eating more fish and veggies; Avoid dairy and cut down on spicy food? NAH.
Spice is life.
