Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting around for somebody to give you flowers"

Being on your feet (literally) on 5" wedges for a full day isn't funny at all. Over-estimated my soles' tolerance for dull numbing aches. But thank god it's wedges, and not stilettos, so at least my weight isn't depended solely (haha) on a 2cm x 10cm needle-like point, but spreaded on at least a near to even surface. Funny how too much of something will eventually lead to the backfire of the entire intended purpose. Say the heel situation: High heels causes an upward shift in the center of gravity, giving the wearer better posture. But after the event, when I went to the Chinese Gardens (which prices are absurd - bing tang hulu for 5$, keychains for 15$. I think the only reasonably priced item was the popcorn at 1.50$), I was slumping and slouching and eventually I took off my shoes and walked on the gravel paths.
Anyhows, Mainland Chinese must think Singaporeans are an awfully ignorant and rich lot - which they are, judging at how they're throwing money for items which are not supposed to cost that much. I can buy 10 bing tang hulu, and 3 of those keychains on a normal day. 15$ for entrance to the gardens was justified actually not by looking at the spread of Ne Zha's (Side tracking: why did he appear in Mid Autumn Fest ah? I thought it's when Chang-Er leap into the moon and something along the lines of meeting her lover?) lanterns, but the smiles on two kids faces when me and my friends gave them some free paper lanterns. It's pretty funny to see people walking their 'balloon-dogs' as well. Looks like a balloon fest to me. Oh well, so long you have something extending out from your hands. - Even sparklers will do.
Yesterday, I realized my inability to write inverted alphabets so i was given the most prestigious and important role of drawing out an 'O', which will never go wrong. I did a pretty damn good job in that!
While we were doing these, suddenly someone else beckoned me over and told me that he had taken a shot of us, and that it looked really nice. He then continued to shoot while we attempted different letterings and shapes.
Lastly, hope your last day of Sept went well. Hopefully, October will be kind to all of us! X
