It is not Hard once you have Decided

I made a choice on the thirteenth of August, the day before I turned twenty three. It was time to do it and I have not had any regrets so far! Though, as far as my stomach goes, I have had some troubles that are new and I do not know how to fix them. This is definitely a "click-bait" short for this post, but in this day and age it is allowed!

Reasons to Volunteer

During Thursday afternoon and into the evening I spent a couple of hours at The Cat Museum here in Singapore. There was a lot of visitors, but unfortunately only a handfull of volunteers. Once school started, many who volunteered during the summer left. Though I had lots to do, I talked to a British family who reminded me why The Cat Museum is great.

Think Green Singapore!

Singapore is known for its Super trees. This is what people think about when Singapore is mentioned. The view from Marina Bay, the Super Trees with the "ship" on top of three skyscrapers. It is a symbol of environmental thinking, the "future" of green energy. Though I really like the trees and what they stand for, Singapore's population is not as environmental as one would think.

Understanding The International

Recently The Dota 2 International was held in Seattle. Millions of dollars in the price pool, thousands seated in Key Arena, and the rest of the world behind staring at screens in their homes, watching everything play out live. Two years ago I understood little of what was happening - but with time and an unexpected Blizzard game I learned something new!

Carpet Working

I came home half past two last night, which is the latest I have come home in a very long time. Ash was managing an event and needed help, so I did. It was great fun and I walked away with more experience than I had before. Every opportunity I get to learn something new, I take!

A Normal Day Birthday

I turned twenty three yesterday. It was a good birthday, felt like any other day but better. Which is just what I was looking for! John usually takes me to places on the actual day, but this year we are going to Japan in September, and so that is my birthday-present (as well as his). Instead of something grand, we met up in Holland Village and ate at a restaurant we both love.

Two Days Left

It is nearing that time of the year again - a birthday. More specifically... mine! I am not a big fan of birthdays. There are plenty of reasons why, but I do not want to make this depressing. Let me just say that receiving gifts and having people walk around me trying to make my day makes me uncomfortable. I do not like being in the spotlight unless I choose to be in it. Yet ever since I met John he has managed to make my birthdays into days I truly enjoy.

First Sell Carousell

I have a website recommendation in mind, but I can not recommend it before I have tried it out fully. But on the other hand, I would like to do some commercial/shout out for myself! I am selling things at Carousell, which is just like ebay, amazon... blocket. Most of my items right now are books and clothes, because that is what I buy and need to make room for more. If you live in Singapore and are interested, head on to my Carousell profile!

Shouting for Japan

Saturday was a long day. We got so many things done that Sunday flew by with nothing done at all. I guess that is how we spend our weekends - one day doing things, the other doing nothing. It is functional. Highly recommend. It is nice especially since John is working five days a week, so when weekends come I want to do things with him and he wants to do nothing. Works out quite perfect!

Shopback - website recommendation

I have been thinking and changing my choice of websites to recommend. At first I thought I would recommend websites for Singaporeans, since this is where I live currently and these websites are (mostly) only usable in Singapore. Then I thought again and now I have decided to change to whom these recommendations are aimed at. Instead of Singaporeans, these website recommendations are aimed at expats who are new in the country or have lived here a long time to did not know about these sites.

First I want to recommend

Mobile Space

It is Thursday again and as you may know by now I will go to The Cat Museum to volunteered during the opening hours. Though I might write about it tomorrow, if anything special actually happen, I will not write about it today. Instead I will share three of my absolute favourite mobile backgrounds. These photos are all space related, because space is beautiful.

Cheering Cherry!

There has been a lack of posts on this blog lately. One can say I have been in a trench, if that is an expression used by other people than me. I will try and be better, try and write more about thoughts and discoveries and not just what I do during a day. It feels like that will be more interesting. At least that is what I think!
