blessings…

For the week of 19-24, I’ve been feeling blessed. This week passed by real quickly, probably because of Deepavali as well. Managed to do a belated post-internship celebration with Alia & Ray on Deepavali. Went to FIX because it was one of the more centralised cafes that was Halal-owned. Food and ambience was pretty alright 🙂 It’s located at HomeTeam NS JOM-Balestier in case you are wondering… it was really good to not be stressed up over assignment while we were eating and chatting about our lives. before we knew it, the sky soon turned dark and it was time to go off.

Assignment was due the next day. Wanted to submit it before 2359 but I struggled a lot with the final question and almost wanted to give up when I couldnt form coherent sentences. Okay but I persevered and managed to complete it in the end. Phew! so thank God for that 🙂

Met Jm and Dine for xlb supper buffet aft my nightclass. A minor incident happened which made us uneasy. Thank God for helping us to get out of this situation and no compensation whatsoever was needed. It challenged our integrity and sense of responsibility… it was a relief that no follow-up had to be done the next day. Went to starbucks to chill there and talk for hours. By the time we reached home, it was already 4ish in the morning.

Met bestie to collect our Hello Kitty race pack. we bought Brooks running shoes too! I felt the pinch but it seemed like an investment that was rather worth it. Managed to save $88 on it, which was originally $220++. & considering that the design was a new release, Glycerin 12. teehee 🙂 I hope it can really last me through my future runs/marathons. At least for the next 3-5 years hopefully! haha.

Met Dine in the evening to collect the Great Eastern Women’s Run pack. my hands were so full that I had to empty lots of the contents of the bag to make space to fit everything in. went to smoothie king & had some hth talk there before we went Astons for dinner. was so tired that I napped almost the entire journey back…

I feel really thankful to be able to meet 3 diff grps of friends during this week. Cant rmb when was the last time I was able to spend quality time with them. Afterall, exam’s next mth so I’ve gotta start studying for it now. (not to forget my 3-4 runs next mth. I know I sound crazy. hahaha).

more blessings to come ^^

15 Signs You’re With A Good Man

JamesMSama.com

When it comes to dating and relationships, I often find myself wondering how certain people end up with others. Wondering why they don’t walk away if they don’t get what they deserve and hoping that they truly appreciate their teammate if they are getting what they deserve.

I think a big part of the problem blurring this line is that many people aren’t even quite sure what a healthy relationship looks like these days or how a ‘good man’ (or woman) should act towards their partner. To help clarify, I have put together this list of how a good man should act while in a relationship.

A good man never lets you forget how much he loves you.

I cannot tell you how many conversations I have had with women who tell me that there is no affection in their relationship. The man in their life does not make them feel…

people ask me what I’ve been doing ever since the end of internship.
well.. lately I’ve been watching Kdramas online. Finished Witch’s Romance last week, and the final 2 episodes of My Secret Hotel this week. & of course doing my assignment. Its due in less than 2 weeks but I’m not gonna hand in slipshod work.

Somehow I feel that I work better under pressure. So I’ve to give myself internal deadline to prevent overestimating the time I have to complete different parts. I’ll usually do research and get as much information as I can before really de-chunking whatever I’ve gathered and organising them so it’s more coherent. & because this is my final assignment for my uni, I wanna do it well. Not sure if an A+ is attainable for this haha. Most importantly it’s about putting in your best effort to complete it so there wont be any guilt/disappointment when the results come back. I always believe in the “Do your best & let God do the rest” motto ever since my P6 teacher emphasised that years ago. 😀

Would probably blog less often since I’m supposed to be studying. Take care everyone! 🙂

friendship

No idea how many times I’ve blogged about friendship since I started blogging in 2006. More than a dozen times probably.

I used to be an extrovert. As I grew up, I start to change… I lose some friends, I gain some, I put in effort to make some work out properly. Recently, one of my friends asked me about my friendship with someone whose behaviour or attitude I cant stand sometimes. Thing is, I’m tired of losing friends. So I’d rather leave things as it is status quo. If that person can change, they would have done it ages ago. So you just have to accept how they are, if you want them to stay in your life.

Just like how relationships work out, friendships need acceptance and forgiveness. One of my ex boyfriends once had this quote that “sometimes what we need most in life is forgiveness”. There may be hurtful moments in a friendship, and yes it may be hard to forgive and forget. Ask yourself if you are willing to put the past behind and start afresh. This means that you withhold the grudges that you previously had with them and start off on a clean slate again. That’s how you work to keep the friendship going isn’t it?

Of course there comes a time when you get sick of the friendship that people take for granted, thinking that they can just approach you when they need or want something from you. & such people come and go, not once, not twice in fact they may come and go as and when they like, for multiple times. Is this friendship worth keeping? Scary to know that there are so many people out there these days that have hidden agendas/motives behind their actions. What’s the best way to deal with them? Confront them about it? Or ignore them when they come talking to you?

I’ll be approaching my early mid-20s in a few months. As of now, I can count the no. of good friends I have with the fingers on both palms. & I’m contented with having just this few. Years ago, I used to have lots of good friends but I couldnt keep them. So I thought that the lesser close ones I have, the easier it would be to maintain friendships. Yeah, when you reach a certain age its no longer about expanding your social network of close friends, but building a stronger bond with the ones that truly matter to you. I’m not saying I’m limiting my social circle but rather, who are the ones that will stick with you for life. You dont have to pretend to be someone else when you are around them, you get to do fun things together. Something common between me and my really good friends are the spontaneous moments that we share. Watch movies, eat happy food, exercise, talk positively ^^ & I’m really blessed to have them all these years, especially those I’ve known for a decade. ❤

Well to conclude this post, all I can say is to be the kind of friend that you want others to be. but of course without having the expectations that they should treat you like how you have treated them. You have to love them and cherish them. If they dont treasure you then you probably dont mean that much to them. Then you’ll know its time to let go of this friendship and focus on other friends who matter more.
