Tips For Getting Better Rest

2016 for me is going to be a hell of a year. With orientation, mentoring and A Levels, it’s going to be cray-cray! But to get on top of the game, the most important thing is to get enough rest. That seems very hard to achieve for someone who procrastinates a lot (aka me) and leave…

MoeInJapan Day 2

Up and about bright and early for the second day of the trip. Today, we go on the Shinkansen (the bullet train) from Kyoto to Hiroshima and the journey took half a day! No more a bullet train virgin. Ear popping and zooming across towns. Literally didn’t feel that we’re going at unbelievable speeds. Fast and…

MoeInJapan Day 1

Finally the day has come. Finally I’m breathing Japanese air. It is 11°C here right now and I am freezing in this temperature!!! Definitely very different from the hot and humid weather in Singapore. Wouldn’t I hate it but wouldn’t I love it that much either. Everyone assembled in Changi Airport in the evening and got…

Empower

“We need to change the way girls are in constant competition and comparison with one another. When you begin habitually comparing yourself to others, you begin to feel insecure about your own choices or appearance, and then you begin to tear others down.

Back To School: Study Apps

September break has ended and it’s time to say hello (although I really don’t want to) to the most hectic term of the year. Term 4 is going to be packed with last revisions and reviews of papers and it’s going to be zoom zoom zoom. I know I cannot live without my phone. It…

Walking in Murky Water

I haven’t been writing much these days because I’ve been preparing for my exams which is just a few days away. Currently on my week-long break now so I thought I should spend some time to write down things I’ve been thinking about. Past week was so frantic; back to back tests and eom submission. Phew! No…

Favourite Bands Right Now |Journal Jar Challenge|

ONE DIRECTION The boys will forever be at the top of my list and I can’t deny it. Even though Zayn has left, he will always be part of the family. There is just this special place in my heart for them and when their song comes on the radio, it’s almost like I’m programmed to stop…

Things Girls Should Know

Don’t hate how you look It is quite challenging to be happy 24/7 about our physical appearance. There are going to be times when the pimples decide to show up at random places on your face. Those moments after you watch Victoria Secret Fashion Show and look down at yourself thinking “Why do I not…

A Pizza Birthday

I had a lovely surprise today. Well, I wouldn’t really call it a surprise because I kind of knew it was going to happen; I accidentally saw the message my friend sent my mom about what they were planning to do that night. *wink* Nonetheless, I got smacked with flour in the face and they brought…

Train Journey

Have you ever really looked around you when you board the train? Did you notice that little girl in a plain white cotton shirt with a hot pink flowy skirt and sandals on her feet matching the ribbons tying her plaits? Did you notice that man in a suit who constantly keeps checking his watch…
