Thank you Valerie for taking my photos!

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with a few student photographers and film their 30 Frames Challenge or what I like to call, The Muesli Games (cc: Other Fabrications).
(Watch the video here)

We went to two different locations, one of which was slightly creepy but I won't go into that.


A few things that I've learnt from the new year so far:

1. Good outcome comes from good effort.
You get out what you put in. Which could also be related to, what goes around comes around. My mock exams just ended, so this is an important one. This could go two ways. Either I put in a lot of effort, or little to none. It is indubitably, the latter. And indubitably, the outcome (so I assume) is tragic. Remember kids, put in what you want to get out from it.

2. Fitness is pain.
I've been trying to exercise more and eat better. I've also come to a point where I am always excited to exercise. This is really a new high point for me and it excites me that I'm excited about it! The key is to take baby steps. Don't force it. Don't push your body TOO far. At the end of the day, remember your goals, and remember that we all started from the bottom (and now we're here) (although my 'here' is not very far).

3. People are not the same as you.
This might sound like a given, but it's hard to remember that sometimes. I forget that people don't think the same way as I do or react to things the way I do. I see people do/say things, and I think, "I would've done _____." "Why is she/he doing ____?" I have all these expectations and preconcepted (this is apparently not a word but please bear with me) ideas of how you should react to situations like that, and when they don't go according to how I envisioned them, I judge and judge and judge. I'm working on remembering this mantra.

MIDNIGHT IN TOKYO


happy in tokyo







Top- Taobao// Overalls- Singapore// Shoes- Singapore

I went to Tokyo during my break in October with a few of my friends.
We literally had one full day there. So yes, it was extremely eventful albeit hectic.
We went mostly shopping, some sightseeing, and food, obviously.

I haven't been to Tokyo in a very long time, but Japan is always one of my favourite places to go. Mostly for the food.
I wouldn't mind getting fat in Japan.

I made a vow to myself that I wouldn't wear overalls.
Yet here I am.
My excuse is that my mom bought it and was hoping I'd wear it, but after I said I wouldn't, the overalls just hung there, not being touched. And obviously I can't let clothes be not worn!!
Neglect of clothing is a very serious matter.

Thank you to Brian for coming with me and taking these photos <3

(This is also my first post of 2015, so happy new year!! May this year be the bomb diggidy.)
