I know I am slow to join the fellow ranks of Instagrammers. But, but, but! I finally got myself an Instagram account after much pestering from my friends (i.e. peer pressure).

Okay, my Instagram feed isn’t all that exciting because I’ve only just started out. But oh well, I’ll slowly work on it.

So… uh… follow me on Instagram @enialeeee?


Belated greetings

The closest we'll get to having everyone in the same country

A belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, everyone! 🙂

I can’t believe it’s already 2012.

Happy National Day to you too. Pfft.

Singapore’s National Day came and gone (it was yesterday). I got the following email from my brother:

Mum & my brother watching the National Day parade (below in the background) at Ritz Carlton

Wah lao. Enjoying THE life, and then come rubbing it IN MY FACE. Did you notice the last line?



Too bad, you know.

Not even, like, we’ll go again the next time you’re here, or something. I feel so loved. (Sarcasm x 1000)

My reply:

Because miso mature

And to end this… Here’s another picture that I received on Whatsapp…


Happy (belated) National Day to all the Singaporeans who are away from home (like me), and who have families who rub it in your faces (like mine).

Semester One, 2011

Finally settled down, and Week 1 of Semester 1 ends tomorrow. Lectures have already started, eeks.

It’s the year of the Rabbit!

Soon after I returned from my trip to Seoul, I came home to discover that the family went into full-fledge CNY (Chinese New Year) mode. The house had been tidied up, save for my luggage which they were waiting for my to return to clear up. A lot of my stuff weren’t in their usual places, I spent almost half a day trying to find my things.

Family 2011

This year’s CNY was an amusing one. It was the war of the tripods at my grandmother’s (Dad’s side) place. Every year, all my relatives come armed with their stylo-milo cameras. We only take full family pictures once a year, so it’s sorta like a big affair.

And the aging continues…

Thank you, everyone who sent me their wishes and lovely gifts! Felt so loved! Haha.

This was how I spent my birthday this year. Can’t believe it’s already the new year and I just turned another year older… AGAIN! Sigh.

Monopoly Deal!

Kinda can’t help the fact that most people’s birthdays come annually huh? Oh well.

The gang planned a day of roller blading and cycling for my birthday but… unfortunately the weather refused to cooperate with us, so it was Plan B – Monopoly Deal.

Wild Honey with A

About a million and one new restaurants seemed to have sprouted overnight in Singapore during the time I’ve been away. So, I’ve been pretty excited to try them. This time, I finally got to try the all-day breakfast at Wild Honey.

The menu

The menu is written on the blackboards surrounding the counter where you place your orders. Very… environmentally friendly? Continue reading
