The Little Things-Field Trips & Breaking Dawn!

Yes 3 more weeks to break!Can's wait for Mid-Sem Test to be over so could catch up on my rest. Luckily only 1 test which means I could get an early break,hehe;)

Mentally and physically drained out. Always spent my weekends at home trying to finish all the work I need to do, need to get out next week!Kinda suffocating with so much work to do,sigh.

Never mind, I shall overcome it, and try my best to score well!Everyone let's push on!^^

Anyway moving on to some happy things, first is I went on 2 field trips for different subjects with my project group and class respectively.

Visited Haw Par Villa, very deserted place that not many people visit now but it was my first time stepping into the theme park, was most looking forward to seeing the Ten Courts of Hell, based on our Chinese legends/mythologies. Insanely warm that day, was sweating non-stop literally.

Saw many interesting/kinda grossed out statues and the stories behind them. Glad I finally went to see, everyone should really go Haw Par Villa once in their lifetime, hahas. Wonder if its gonna be demolished soon though...

The Haw Par brothers' villa last time before it was destroyed during WWII.

Then another field trip was to Sembawang Country Club, had to do a report on it so we were given a brief talk about the place and get to do a fast tour there, but only managed to see some areas, mainly the golf course. Hahas, but no matter, the scenery was beautiful^^

Finally, an impromptu movie date with YX to catch the highly anticipated Breaking Dawn Part 2, after years of chasing, it finally ended this year. Ending was pretty awesome! Love the whole saga though book was definitely better except for some draggy parts,heh.

Oh and I can't get over how pretty the actress for Renesmee is, such sharp face features o.O
Super glad went for this movie, was on the verge of breaking down, but after watching, mood was lifted and well I get to escape from reality for awhile.Hehes.
Time to crashed back to reality, hopefully, praying hard I/my group could finished all work on time and deliver the reports for a worthy grade A.

Have a nice week!(:

Spare A Little Thought

So I've been really caught up in school work for the past weeks, like riding on a bullet train but with many things to accomplish in that short period of time. Been thinking a lot when sitting on the bus, before putting myself to sleep, while watching videos, doing tutorials, watching people passing by...

Sometimes I really wonder why am I working so hard for. Putting so much effort and time.Money? Future Job? Family? Myself?

Technically there's no right answer in life, just whatever I choose to do is just gonna be a part of my life and will affect what I could do next. I just really hate that I'm too caught up in chasing something that doesn't really mean the world to me but just for survival sake in this society, world whatever. Why am I doing this, I really have no idea. On top of that I can't exactly find what I like to do without feeling dejected and hopeless. My future is a big fat blank with no ascertain goals. I really hope there's still enough time to discover something that makes me run for it, never giving up on it, always will be a brightly lit fire to guide me through.

Motivation is also a funny thing, though I find whatever I'm doing now is aimless but somehow I  find a will to keep pushing myself to finished this chapter of life to the best of I can before it ends again. Where did it come from? Or was it because of hope? That maybe someday I will look back and thank my past self for doing my future self a favour so I won't starve to death?Or that maybe doing this is something useful and permanent to carve a path for my life?

There are times when I feel its time to let everything go, I'm really sick of doing the same old routine over and over again but somehow I'm still scared if I really let go, what will happen to me? My family? Would I burden them further with all my worries and selfishness? Because really, there's one principle I always live by is always, never, as much as possible to burden anyone with my own problems, especially major ones. I hate doing this to people when its my own problem and I should solve it myself. Makes me feel so clingy and useless if I did that.

Seriously what am I doing with my life?

Anyway the point of this post it point. I don't have answers to the problems I faced, just feelings tumbling out when thinking of all these big life questions that I ponder most of the time.

In time to come I just want to know what I'm good at, what can I do for work, what can i do to make myself and loved ones happy everyday and wake up to optimism.

What caused me to think so much was because of this post that Kalel to wrote, somehow it just snap into my mind and BAM, thinking about what I'm facing right now but I'm not taking any actions for now to deal with it. Probably when I can clear my mind first and figure out the answers .

Do take a read, maybe it will inspired you?

Goodbye for now!~

The Little Things-MBS & K-Attack!

It's November already!Have you achieve any or most of the goals/resolutions?^^
Can't remember what I set for myself, probably the same goal as always for studies and loved ones. Hees.

2nd week of school is already driving me stress and irritated, why did I chose this elective in the first place uh. Using PBL to learn is getting tedious and tiring. Shall try to think positive thoughts and do well for the subjects, for now grades matter most to me.

Since the electives I took was HR/Tourism, was given an opportunity to attend the 3-days seminar/conference organized by ASTD and STADA. Location at Marina Bay Sands convention centre which was freaking cool cos I've never been there before and the decorations, architecture looked extremely classy and elegant. Probably my first and last time get to go there,hahas.

Anyway, it was an event for many HR professionals to get together to mingle and learn about managing HR so it really was an eye opener for me, getting to see so many people and learn a little about the business world. Kinda scary actually, couldn't see myself doing all this in few years time. >.<

Here's my pass!(:
Fascinated by the lighting  in the room, hehes.
Did I mention there was tea break, lunch and dinner for all 3 days? However I went for 2 days only get to taste the tea breaks and one lunch. Was surprised the food actually tasted really good!Technically only went for food tasting instead of going in to listen at each sessions,oopsie!

Just caught my eye.
The one and only lunch, doesn't look very tempting but pretty good stuff!^^
The last day of the seminar, who knew it actually help me made some new friends and we kinda get along(:
We get to hang out while waiting for lunch break, hahas and they're really nice people, so thank you for brightening up my day!

Thankful and appreciative too that I gotten a chance to go to this type of event, doesn't happen everyday you know? So no regret plus had a lot of fun!Hehes(:

On Saturday, went to support our dear SY at Esplanade concert hall as she was part of her school Chinese Orchestra playing K-pop songs~

Met up with the rest for tea break first, before going in for the concert.
Playing with the smiling prop by MacDonald's, teehee.
Our food for break!YUM.

& us!Credit to YX!

My nails of the day!^^
Outfit for the day! Credit to YX!
Our female lead!Hehes!

In the concert hall waiting for the performance to start. First time in Esplanade too, the hall was very spacious and sophisticated.
Totally immersed in the music they played throughout the 1.5hours+, the conductor also quite hilarious, lol. Light sticks were given to us but didn't use much. The whole orchestra played really well, could feel their efforts and music was soothing and so nice to listen to. Hope next year we will get to go again too!:D

So this sums up for my week, had really good time!

Now its back to reality again, every Monday is gonna be a long day in school:(
Time to catch up on projects and tutorials. Finding my way through this complicated maze.
Need to survive!

Have a good rest everyone!
