2017 Geylang Serai Bazaar

Geyland Serai Bazaar with the fam was so much fun, the food was just mediocre however the company definitely made up for its misses. It was all so much fun and I would definitely want to do this again, xx

Chanced upon a great photo location and had a few girls helped us take a photo!! :>

I didn't really buy much food because mostly the food there was really overpriced, and the portion was really small so I just bought some to try out with my friends!

The food I bought from the bazaar; 
"Healthy Acai" bowl for $6- it was actually an acai bowl, but in comparison to my hands, the right term would most probably be an acai cup. It was delicious and guilt-free, but however for the price of $6 I was definitely expecting something bigger and not something so small. I would rather have this at an outside Acai franchise where I can get it at $3 more ($9) for something that is 2-3 times bigger.

My friend then got this supposedly "Lava Macaroon" but however to my disappointment there was no lava and nothing flowed out, the only thing that was sandwiched in between the two macaroons was chocolate sauce. Even when we cut into it, nothing flowed out. It was a whooping $9.90 for this macaroon with ice cream. The macaroon was way too sweet but the ice cream was the saving grace as it was the only one which was not too sweet. It was a mix of coconut and taro flavor, and the two flavors really blended well together. Although the ice cream was pretty good, it was still too expensive to be paying so much for this overly sweet dessert.

The last thing I had that night was Thai Foam Green Milk tea! I actually wanted to try the Rainbow Tamago, however, the waiting time was close to an hour so I settled for this instead. It was priced at $4.50, for quite a big sized cup. This was pretty good and the tea taste was strong which is definitely a plus point, however it was also too sweet for me. :( I'm the type of person who would order a 0% sugar drink and still find it slightly sweet because I'm always so used to drinking tea without any sugar! But this is one of the best milk tea I have drank in the bazaar because the tea taste is stronger and more authentic. This was definitely worth it! :) 

After walking one round of the bazaar, we filled our stomachs and decided to walk to one of my friend's house. He lived in Joochiat which is approximately a 15-20 mins walk from the bazaar, it was such a spontaneous event and we all decided to go with it. We then spent the rest of the night at my friend's house and played a few rounds of burning bridges before leaving and going home. 

Photos with Aderes, sigh Sahrah I wish you took the photo with us instead of taking it for us :/ 
Love you Sahrah ♥♥♥

Overall, it was a really fun night and I wish we'll do this more often. Thank you guys for the great night xx 

before we knew, time had already passed us by

How time passes, I've been on such a long hiatus and in the blink of an eye it has already been close to 1 year and 6 months since I last posted a blog post. In fact, December 2015 was the last time i actually blogged :')
I wish I could say that I was busy with school work and didn't had any time to blog but in fact I actually had a whole lot of time but yet I was just really enjoying life and was always too lazy to blog, but I guess now its time to get my blogging game on once more and I'm determined to do so!

Throughout this past 1 year and 6 months, there were indeed many ups as much as downs that I've faced.

2016- The New Year
The first three months of 2016 was indeed challenging for everyone in my family, there were many things that happened throughout the duration of the three months. My maternal grandfather got really sick suddenly and he passed on around early March, the whole family was just so down and depressed. My grandfather's sudden passing on also reminded me once again of my grand mother which passed on in 2015. It just raked up many memories and it once again reminded me the importance of cherishing the people around you and how one should never live in regret; as a quote suggests- "Don't ever regret the things you did, instead regret the things you didn't do and should have done."

I've also entered poly with a Diploma in Experience and Product Design in April 2016, and it was definitely tough trying to keep up with the school work and curriculum. Design school definitely had a lot of projects and submissions, but thankfully there were no examinations or written tests for design school. (I guess I'll be posting some of my projects here on this space, so do keep a look out! :-) )

At the start, school wasn't really the thing for me because I did not have much interest in my course and plus I was really confused at all the software and assignments. Thus I lost all motivation to do well in my course, and there was always no effort put into my submissions. I scored really badly in Year 1; semester 1, because of my lack of willpower and determination to do well. I had a really bad GPA and it is something that I still regret up until now, I had regretted not putting in effort and for always playing around in Year 1 semester 1.

However, I'm indeed really grateful for my Year 1 teacher for always not giving up on me and for always pushing and guiding me along the way. He really tried his very best to help me whenever possible, and along the way I managed to find new friends as well. My new clique of friends were very helpful and patient, there were a lot of things that I did not managed to master in Semester 1 and they were all very patient in helping me even though I am always lost and confused. I am thankful for so many things and for so many people, I'm so very thankful for my previous clique of friends as well, for staying with me and for always making the time in Poly worth the while.

Shout out to this guys for having my back always, xx 

 we can never take proper photos together :') but i love you guys hehe

It has indeed been a year full of ups and downs but I'm glad and thankful for the people that were with me on this ride. There were definitely a lot more events that happened in 2016; so do keep a lookout for my next upcoming post!! :)
