Phuket 2013HI I AM BACK FROM MY GRAD TRIP WITH SIX OF THE MOST AWESOMEST GIRLS.
I am so sunburnt it hurts. The long and short of the trip: We ate, we slept, we perspired, we swam, we got roasted, we lepak, we had joy we had fun we had seasons in the sun~~~
(10 May: Wts working life is so busy now I know why people don't blog THERE IS NO TIME my sunburn is somewhat healed already lol ok continue blogging)
Sigh I miss Phuket~ Felt so carefree and happy (but still only 30% of Wuhan's awesomeness). Livia, Manjun, Gen, Yanhong and Weilin I'm so grateful to have met you guys in poly and Rachel I'm happy you went to MCM from Nanhua ^_^ Without you guys I'd probably have gone batshit crazy. Thank you for making this short getaway so memorable! I wanna go back to Thailand again~~~!!!
Oh oh the morning of the flight we managed to surprise Manjun with cupcakes because it was her birthday!!! :D:D:D
Rachel and Manjun wrecking havoc at 7am in the morning hahahahaha
The flight to Phuket was short but it felt long I do like flying hahaha. A really nice atas van came to pick us up from the airport and everyone was staring at us as we boarded SUPERSTAR MOMENT PLEASE. It was probably because some of them were wearing shades and dressed up damn nicely and all (RACHEL ALL RACHEL) and I look like their manager oppa LOL.
Anyway the 7 of us stayed in Surin Park and it was so amazing (albeit a bit far, about 30-40mins away from Phuket Town where the shopping and happening stuff are). Surin Park is a service apartment so people clean your room/give you fresh towels everyday and THERE IS A KITCHEN. Felt like a tai tai for three days ~_~ We arrived too early to check in on the first day so we left our luggage behind and went out for lunch!
Lunch by Surin Beach~
Mr Tan's seafood restaurant haha my lao peh and Manjun's lao peh open one mai siao siao. The food wasn't sensational but it was very satisfying~!
Fried pork with red curry (mine), Livia's crab glass noodles and Rachel's pad thai~~~ The rest were too far away for me.
Headed back to the apartment after lunch where we had a secret mission: Preparing for Manjun's mini surprise hahaa had to convince her to leave the apartment with Weilin and Rachel to settle our airport transfer and get new slippers for Rachel cuz it broke wtf good timing!!! Luckily she didn't suspect anything. ^_^
Photos from Rachel Phay hehe
Didn't use the jacuzzi cuz we were too busy playing in the sea. The toilet is the master bedroom's~ SO SPACIOUSSS.
My favourite part of the house: The kitchen with Electrolux appliances *______*
Decorated the bedroom for Manjun ^_^
Before we headed to Surin beach~~~
Photo from Rachel Phay.
Surin Beach.............WAS SO VIOLENT WTF. Nearly drowned wtf kept getting knocked down by the waves (don't wear bikinis...) and got hit in the crotch and it still hurts a week later....... BUT Yanhong discovered that if we go deeper it was better but still tiring trying to stay afloat. VERY GOOD EXERCISE.
Went out at night to some shopping mall...but we were all quite exhausted hahaha I remember eating Baskin Robbins and pretty bad but atas Thai food at the mall....and that was the end of our first day~
Day 2: Patong Beach and weekend market
Photo from Manjun.
BREAKFAST BUFFET IN PJs AT 7.30AM WAHAHA.
It wasn't really a buffet but you could order unlimited stuff from a menu (scrambled eggs, omelette, porridge, cereal, bacon, ham, fruits, etc). They kept getting our orders wrong though...I never got my mushroom omelette lolol I literally got everything else but mushrooms in my omelette wtf. Still good, still good.
Made a sandwich.
Rachel's cereal. SO KIDDY.
Went back up to do in-room massage (400 baht) IT WAS SO SHIOKKKKKK. I want massage now. Huhuhu.
There's a heart shape in Livia's tea hahaha.
Took a taxi to Patong afterwards~~~ (700 baht) ^_^
Engaged in touristy behaviour... :D
Livia got a star, Yanhong got a dolphin and Rachel got a swallow anklet thingy.
Had a very satisfying linner/dunch at this restaurant. *_*
THE FOOD WAS SO GOOOOOD.
Watched the sunset in the sea with the loveliest people :')
Thanks Rachel for taking this photo!!
:') :') :')
Sun too bright ahhh.
We were waiting for Rachel Phay and Genevieve to come back from the toilet I think hahaha.
People were selling the paper lanterns at the beach (60 baht) so we got one and wrote our wishes on it and let it fly. It was perhaps the most touching moment on the trip. Also the hottest. I have no idea who has the photo of the lit lantern. Huhu.
Someone setting off fireworks before we left and after our lantern flew away.
GO WEEKEND MARKET!!! (500 baht)
Didn't buy because I was too full =(
Our loot for under SGD$80!!! I miss shopping liao.
Faded already I'm very sad.
Last day =(
Livia and I lepaking with fries and pina colada in coconuts (at 11am wtf)
while the rest went parasailing/jet-skiing again.
It's quite costly (1500 baht) but worth it if you've not tried before! The prices are fixed (the guy walks around with a menu) so they won't rip you off. If you're in a large group PLEASE BARGAIN!!! Will get at least 300 baht discount.
Went back to the weekend market earlier that day!!! Surprisingly it was cooler and less crowded ^_^ I think we shopped for 3 hours wtf.
The Converse Gang had street food for dinner woohoo!!! I think it's become a ritual of sorts.
Found a shop selling fried insects. Nope didn't try. :P
I LOVE THE CUTE SHORTS!!!!!!!! It has elephants on it.
Also bought a fish tank for Ed.... it was $8.60 I had to.
Bought lots of food back for supper :Q~
Side track: Yanhong and I got stung by a jellyfish (technically I got stung by what was left of the jellyfish on Yanhong's hand wtf) so we had to avoid seafood and spicy food. T_T Anyway the beach dudes (the ones who asks if you want drinks/deck chairs) took very good care of us (use fresh water to clean the stings, ice it and then rub lime juice/vinegar on it and it'll stop stinging in 30 minutes). We attracted a lot of attention lolol. Weilin got kiap by a crab too wtf THE SEA IS CHASING US HOME WHY. Anyway that was why I bought so much chicken and pork................ hahaha.
(2nd photo from Livia's instagram)
Nom nom with the alcohol Livia bought ;D
We were supposed to stay up but we were so tired that we went to bed wtf and WOKE UP LATE thankfully Gen woke me up in time because I was supposed to cook breakfast HAHAHA.
(photo from Livia)
Breakfast I made ^_^ Gen helped to slice the tomatoes and toast bread HAHA.
The staff gave us the raw ingredients (again, wrong quantity and missing food) so we could cook it as we had to leave before the breakfast starts.
My happy customers.
Sigh and that was the end of our Phuket trip. It was the BEST beach holiday I've had and I can't wait to travel with you guys again. :)
Abrupt end I need to go to work wtf Happy Mother's Day ah.
(I may or may not blog about my Taiwan trip because it was quite boring. Hahaha.)
I WILL BLOG SOON I SWEARSHIT I haven't blogged for two months.
Nothing much has changed...
Still broke, still working (I don't really know what to tell people what I'm working as), got new hair colour, still lepak, still waiting to officially graduate from poly, still playing Candy Crush and now playing Battle Cats.
I got a new pet!!!
His name is Ed.
I HAVE BECOME A BORING ADULT. I WILL TRY TO BLOG MORE OFTEN. I DIDN'T EVEN BLOG ABOUT MY LAST TRIP TO TAIWAN. I HAVE FAILED IN LIFE. But seriously I have no time to blog because I'm either working or on the bus or lepaking or sleeping. Lepak is important. Good bye.
Oh yeah going Phuket in two dayssss BYE.
OH MY HAIR cuz I haven't done anything to it since I went to Korea (or have I??? No right...)
Ignored my uneven weird shit ombre hair for the longest time (which was why it became weird shit ombre cuz my roots just kept growing)
Told the hairdresser I wanted a bright colour and he suggested golden and I was like can you put some red undertones I don't want it yellow and he was like sure and then halfway while washing my hair he said "erm the bleached parts will become pink" and I was like "PINK?! ......ok can." and GOD I WISH I NEVER DYED MY HAIR BY MYSELF IN KOREA EVEN NOW IT'S HAUNTING ME the parts which got dyed green turned magenta and then rest are patchy golden orange and it's red in some places but the top half of my head is definitely orange brown.
What have I done. I can't undo it. Okay I love my hair colour because it's unique and I need to remind myself to be grateful. Will be waiting for my pay and the next hair colour groupon....
Chinese New YearErm.
Here's what I looked like on the first day of CNY (minus the wedges I was wearing flats) and that's it cuz I only went visiting for a day. ^_^
Goodbye I will return to my "I have no future" life.
Oh yeah I finally submitted my resignation letter for Gong Cha after pussying about for about a year now I feel really sad it was a good two years of work. Might even be the best two years of my working life. GOOD BYE MY JOB.
What is my lifeHi I've forgotten about this haha SO MANY THINGS HAVE HAPPENED LA I got a new phone~~~~~~~!!! And I have instagram lol.
Even though intern is over it isn't really over we're still doing shit (supposed to be writing something but here I am :D) for our graduation showcase. I feel like opportunities are being thrown at me left right center but I don't feel like taking them up cuz they suck la ok I'm gonna work at Gong Cha for a month. And see how it goes.
I've been watching House and baking pineapple tarts what is life. Celebrated my birthday at Morganfield's with Livia and Weilin, went to the zoo with Livia and Gen, had dinner with Rachel at Dolce Tokyo (or what used to be Blue Mountain) and had the best creme brulee I've ever eaten, lou a lot of hei, went back to NH to lou hei and that's about it.
Not having a proper life is making me very bad tempered. Actually it's not but people keep asking me what I'm going to do because I don't have a proper life and that's making me very bad tempered.
Ya okay bye need some bubble tea.
End of my poly lifeIT HAS BEEN A MONTH SINCE I LAST BLOGGED. SO MUCH HAS HAPPENED. AND I NO LONGER FEEL OBLIGED TO SHARE EVERYTHING ONLINE BECAUSE I GOT LAZIER...
The long and short of it is:
1. Internship has ended. Somewhat. Still got work. Lul.
2. I just turned 20. And I feel the pressure of society. It gave me a shoulder cramp.
3. Suddenly realised CNY is not a good thing. :(
4. LRY is enlisting. Sigh.
5. I have the bestest friends. :')
6. Craving for prawns.
7. Baked pineapple tarts and am considering selling them. :D
That's all I guess. Have a happy Chinese New Year!!!
ThanksI've had a lot of epiphanies lately... not a bad thing but it is making me go a bit cray cray. I *just* realised how wonderful 2012 was for me. I always knew it was good but it just dawned on me that it was probably the best year I've ever had, and that is good enough.
I'm so thankful for everyone in my life now I could cry (I did). I've learnt so much and as much as I want to remain debt free I know I will forever remain in debt to everyone who has helped me. Okay I will get repetitive because that is the limit of my vocabulary/adjectives/English in general and I am seriously beyond happy when I look back and reflect on 2012.
Special shout out to Livia who is the best and most supportive chingu anyone can have. :') Okay Phay you too you whiny bitch kidding I love you la hahaha. And then there's Manjun, Gen, Weilin, Yanhong, Amira etc and there they are, the best people I've met in Poly :') And the guys la but they always bo jio except Isaac HAHA.
In 2012 I went to Wuhan (first half of 2012) and Korea (second half of 2012) with Livia and Weilin. They are the best people to travel with and I wish Yanhong was with us. But it's alright because we'll have opportunities to travel together as the Converse Gang again. Thanks for the wonderful memories you guys. :')
I also ended my first relationship (ever) and I gained so much out of it. I became a nicer person (according to Livia) and had the chance to reevaluate and reorganise my life. I wished I could redo that entire part of my life (it has cost me dearly) (literally) (I wasted close to $1000 and I am still paying the price) but I know I am better with it than without it. I'd like to think life puts us through ordeals like this in order to let the person understand and learn a few lessons. It makes or breaks a person, but it's worth it in the end when you finally understand why it happened. I hope everyone who is going through a difficult time finds the strength in them to pull through and be happy again. I find that the easiest and ironically the hardest way to indulge yourself in happiness again is to let go.
Let go of your pain, let go of your pride, let go of your need to be right, let go of hate, let go of memories, let go of whatever is making you sad. As long as you are not hurting anyone including yourself, let go. You're not just forgetting things and burying them in the back of your head, but you are allowing yourself to acknowledge that it has happened, and that it is time to move on.
Here's a quote to end this melancholic part of the post: People who are meant to be together will always find their way back to each other. They might take detours in life, but they're never lost.
The best part of 2012 was I've found everyone I love and I managed to spend quality time with all of them. I had my first ever birthday surprise courtesy of the Converse Gang :') I found someone I care a lot for (that's you LRY) and who makes me happy 80% of the time (sorry babe 20% is owned by PMS). I started cooking more often because I realised I like to cook to feed people and seeing them eat makes me happy. I decided to face my flaws and in 2013 I hope I can be less flawed.
Okay I'm going to end here if not I'll never stop HERE'S A PICTURE OF MY FAVOURITE PRESENT FROM THAILAND FROM LRY!!!
Goodnight everyone tomorrow's a brand new day!!!!!!
