Wake up to new perspectives

It’s my birthday today. I’m typing this while sitting on the bed of my Airbnb, a place I’m staying at temporarily until my new flatshare is ready for me to move in.

It’s been a hectic couple of months. It feels like a lot has happened.

First day of the rest of my life

First day of the rest of my life, and I cannot sleep. Actually, that sentence sums up the last five or so years of my life pretty well. But tonight – or rather, this morning – I have a good reason for not being able to sleep.

I am finally graduating.

  • I ate 21 oysters today. They were only Β£1 each! Can't believe it. Totally ate four month's worth of oysters! I just looove seafood. 😍🐚 Thank you, England, for hosting such amazing and such generous seafood festivals! ❀️
  • The "Super Mario" macaroni and cheese: Sauteed mushrooms, truffle oil, and garlic. So delicious omg! 😍 Been craving mac 'n' cheese for so long... 🀀
  • Went to a Malaysian restaurant yesterday before the World Cup game because I was craving for some warm Asian (East Asian or Southeast Asian) food in my tummy. Decided on @laksamania because I missed out on @vincentmong's and @cherylgoh15's non-existent invite to this very restaurant and to a screening of THE INCREDIBLES 2. Hashtag SMH. πŸ˜’

The photo you're looking at is a photo of the restaurant's Penang assam laksa. 🍜
  • Mango shaved ice topped with passion fruit and lychee. 🍨 Perfect summer dessert!
  • A wall of self-reflection.
  • Throwback to that hot summer day on the Copacabana beach in Rio de Janeiro where @cmyes and I watched Germany beat France in the World Cup quarterfinals. πŸ‡©πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡«πŸ‡· I will never forget that day. It was so hot, the sand was so hot, we sat on someone's random hotel bed sheets or something because the sand was too hot to sit on. I also remember getting my face painted (both sides) with a Germany flag while walking to the beach to watch the game, and then getting the other cheek painted with a France flag when we arrived. Practically ambushed by French fans who were determined to paint the flag on the other cheek even though we weren't supporting France. πŸ˜‚ Loved how loud the French and German fans were on the beach. We tried going by the MaracanΓ£ stadium earlier in the day but obviously weren't allowed even near it because we didn't have tickets. Great memories in Brazil. ❀️ #Throwback #WorldCup2014 (#TeamVarane tomorrow!!)
