Should i or should i not sleep?
Need to get up at 4.30AM in the morning later. 
It is going to be a happy day filled with surprises.
Hello Sunday, 19 more minutes before you creep upon us.
I have decided, thou shall not forsake sleep.

This pain, it's not a dying pain. It's a victory pain.

WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO KNOW JAC? - the inside story
Friday, July 20, 2012 || 8:33 AM

White's confession which she has been ITCHING to well, me.

jac...jackyline...(stop hitting me with your dirty shirt!)...she's a weird one...
...believe me, ive known her for (an unfortunate! ) four, five...MANY years...
we've had fun times, not-so fun times, (go away! dont peek over my shoulder...)
basically, she's an...irritating, annoying tiny little evildwarf...
...though she may have some, a few, make that almost non-existent ...well, i do suppose you can call them good points i guess, if we're not being very critical of this...
most interesting(or annoying) points about jac:
- her ability to LAUGH at just about anytime, anywhere, under ANY circumstances
(its really embarrassing to bring her out, especially to have a virtual hyena beside you who laughs at really weird or inopportune moments, (on the bus, in the library, along the streets...) AND which sets you off too, so everyone around a 3metre radius would stare at two girls laughing their heads of at NOTHING. seriously. it really is horrible for one's reputation)
- her willingness and enthusiasm for good food(totally agrees with!) but unwilingness and unenthusiasticness to pay for said food(*hands down*), rather to spend on fashion instead...(i mean, food vs fashion!? really?) (*correction: spending on good food with any other friends but ME. RAHR. you suck.)
- her interest in good literature and awesome art(which i absolutely go for, but not really since our tastes differ...) which at least thankfully has provided something for us to fill up the *comfortable silences* with...
our conversations mostly go like:
her: hey did you read this new book by haruki murakami? its really nice...
me: oh, really
her: yeah, read it, read it! READ IT!
me: errr...okay when im not as busy doing...uh...stuffs...
me: *quickly changing the topic*
- her preference for tanned skin, and me being, well, the opposite of tanned...
- her general wacky sense of self (which includes just about the other 99% of what makes her, errm, her. )
okay, im bored of doing this...
nothing much to say about her anyways, i mean, if youre here on this site, you pretty much shouldve known what youre in for, right?

till next time, my fellow comrades (in suffering),

Author Paulo Coelho wrote: When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. I’m a firm believer of that. Pay close attention. Take a couple of sincere strides toward whatever it is you truly want, and see how the universe responds to your wishes. Don’t expect the whole kit-and-caboodle to magically appear on a silver platter in front of you. Instead be prepared to give it everything you’ve got for the long haul. If you refuse to give in, then you literally can’t be stopped. The only thing holding you back is you

Went to Nostalgia Queen Vintage bazaar at Sophia Rd with mum. So basically, this shoppe is owned by an avid traveler, who loves fashion. Whenever she's traveling in Europe/Paris, she will go hunting for stuff and bring it back to Singapore. There's not only clothes, but also more knick knacks such as figurines, etc. Spotted a vintage Missoni maxi which i absolutely aaaaaadoree (and it's pretty affordable for a Missoni) but rather out of my financial range so I gave it a miss. There's also another 70s floral dress with puffy sleeves sigh which I keep thinking about now.

Got two belts instead. Look at the pretty details!


On an equally colourful note, check out my new tribal wedges!

1. Be the change you want to see.

Check. Now waiting for hell to unravel.
Not everything is about the fucking amount of money you can earn anyways.
Never am i going into an industry i am not even slightly interfuckingested in, not even if it means i can earn possibly 5x more because that's 5x more agony, suffering and torment inflicted to myself.
Yes, I am interested in money, but not when it comes together in a package like that.

Seriously, Riccardo Tisci NEVER fails to deliver with his arresting creations.
Instantly recognizable.

"The hardest thing to realize in fashion is that the future lies in the past. The second hardest thing is to forget the past." - BOF

Things come to us in circles. Inspirations, ideas, trends, love, karma. But never be stuck in a phrase, because even though what happens now or in the future is influenced by the past, we, as humans, always have the ability to extract the best out of the very best, to create something new.

New inspirations, ideas, trends, love and karma.
Take command of these new stuff, they be created without a splotch on the masterpiece, even though it's based on past history. 
And then, you will see and feel something you have never before. 
And that's the beauty of it.

It seems like I am slowly combing the shelves of the library by jumping around from sections to sections. There was a time when I was always found sitting on the carpeted floor of the self help section (where I discovered James Frey & Rhonda Byrne & M Scott Peck = my three unsung heroes), then I hopped over to the Literature section where the flowery words really fucked my mind upside down, and when I realized I really did not have a knack for poems and haikus (what's the diff?!) which are shorter than my palm. Novels anytime, please! Moved on to the wooden shelves which stored ghostly deeds of prisoners, explored psychology for abit and now it's travel stories. Code 910.4! Initially wanted to recline in a quiet corner and finish a book about the flaws of science and doctors, but ended up lugging home 4 other books - all compilations of personal recounts. Mostly put together by Lonely Planet. It's an amazing section really, it encompasses so many aspects, from kindness to survival skills, and the grainy exciting bits about venturing into uncharted territories. 
It's a section of passion. For every single story, I realize what goes through my mind is hopelessly similar - 'I wish, I was the one going through this.'
Sigh, the world is really my oyster. 
Human differences should really be embraced as enriching, rather than threatening.
If only more people could see that, we would definitely go a long way towards creating a world graced, interlaced with peace and opportunities. 

And reading such stories really kicked me in the gut. 
I did some research about certain organizations, and I actually sent in applications to be a volunteer in Kenya. And guess what, I got accepted. 
Will not be pursuing this dream first though, because even dreams have line-ups, and unfortunately, there are more in the platter at the moment. 
To be able for me to accomplish certain dreams, some things need to be done first. 
And sometimes, the 'some things' might not be what I want, but they are absolutely necessary. 

My dad asked me how work was, and I told him it's really enjoyable, but sometimes I feel a little tired. Maybe because I am in the process of getting used to being in full time work. He told me never to mention the word 'tired' ever again, not even to them, because it is a reflective measure of being weak, and it is absolutely not accepted. 
His words might seem to be a little harsh, but I absolutely agree with him, and from today onwards, such negative words will be permanently deleted from my dictionary. No more, because these are barriers to what I would want to achieve in the future.
Weaklings will not achieve what they want if they have such floppy mindsets and determination. 
Only the strong survives.
