Quote of the month | “Hold on to your values, never forget them and allow yourself to compromise. Remember always that whilst money is essential for survival, it’s not everything. There’s always going to be burn outs, challenges, learning curve and politics, but how you handle it defines you. Don’t let situations define how you react, take control and remember to always pray” – I wrote this quote to as a reminder to myself whilst I am at a huge crossroad in my life.
Listening to a beautiful blend of one of my favourite Ed Sheeran song with Pachelbel’s Canon. If I could, I would get married again just for this to be played on my wedding day.

Learning to cope with the fact that what we want in life may not always be reality. Life’s cruel like that, it’s how you choose to deal with it that makes a huge difference.
Celebrating a new opportunity that appeared in my work life. The best part of this new opportunity is the ability to fulfil my wish for a challenging job scope and being able to do something that I’ve always had a passion for.
Thinking about the arrival of our home and knowing that there’s a lot of work before it becomes a home. Even then, I’m grateful that soon, I’d have a place to call my own.
Enjoying the quality time that I get to spend with my family and B over the last 2 weeks. Really happy to be able to spend time just relaxing and chatting about life with family.
Treasuring the last couple of weeks where I get to sleep in and waltz into the office at 9am before I move to another place where working hours are longer, but the work would be a fulfilling one.
Missing my mum and maternal grandpa, especially after stumbling upon a Hainanese Hair Salon one afternoon. Listening to them chatter in Hainanese really brought tears to my eyes.
