Oh Look, Krill!

Oh don't worry. Whales don't eat clownfish, they eat krill.


To the people who made my wedding awesome, thank you.

A successful and smooth wedding always has a number of people who helped to make it that way. My wedding was no different.

1. More Than Diamonds
I was very picky with my the type of ring I wanted since it had to fit the type of work I do and not get in the way. Most of the rings we saw at the jewellers were either too ostentatious or way above or budget, so we decided on getting our rings custom-made.

The lovely couple who ran the business, listened to what we wanted and designed the rings on the spot and gave us good suggestions on the design we wanted. With a number of different materials, gemstones and designs to choose from, it wasn’t difficult to find one that we both loved and still stay within budget.

2. Vibrant Skin Sanctuary
I’ve been going to Vibrant Skin Sanctuary for years to do my monthly facial. I love the personalised service, reasonably priced packages and most of all, she helped my skin feel and look better. So when I found out that she provided the bridal spa service, I jumped at it.

It was so pampering and relaxing. My skin felt so soft and smooth for weeks after the treatment. It was totally worth smelling like ikan goreng (fried fish) during the treatment.

Adventures of living with cats: #1 The one where I got bit

I’ve always wanted cats but my mom had always said no. So, I got my wish when I got married since my husband has 2 cats, Sadie and Coco, at home. He keeps insisting that I only like the idea of having cays but I have no idea what I’m in for.

The past three weeks, had been good in my opinion. I’m learning to watch where I step in case of cats underfoot. Especially at night, when I go to the kitchen in the dark and they choose the darkest part of your path to lie down on.
Anyway I have a daily routine now, where I brush Sadie everyday when I come home from work.

See this cat there? She’s cute and innocent looking isn’t she? Well, she isn’t!

Dear Science

Remember the letter I wrote to you some time last year? I still love you. It’s not you, my love, that I’m having problems with. It’s the environment that we’re in that’s making me sad, depressed and slowly hating you. I don’t feel like I belong here, to be with you.

It’s getting harder for me to bring myself to see you every day. The people around us, even with their best intentions, aren’t helping. In fact, they’re tearing us apart. I love you but I don’t think I can stay here with you anymore.

They’re pushing me to do things I’m not comfortable with. Things that I’ve no experience and yet, expecting the best of results, just because I’ve been here the longest. I’m going to have to make a decision soon, to leave you and start over somewhere new as soon as I can, or stay and die slowly every day.

I hope that I’ll see you again when I leave. 

Loving you always,

Me


Dear Science

We’re in a rut. It’s not doing any favours to our already rocky relationship. You’re starting to get dull and boring, and I don’t find you as attractive anymore. Even the little things that you try to entice me with, the trainings, the new fangled techniques, the new science discoveries, it just isn’t exciting me as it used to.

I think that we need a break, you and I. Or maybe we should move our relationship to a new place. A place where we can be happy once more. A place where I can fall in love with you again and remember why I fell in love with you in the first place.

I miss the exciting times we had. Now, I just can’t look you in the face without wanting to punch people. Why has it come to this? Where has that spark gone, my love? I want you back, I just don’t know how.

I still love you, but I don’t know for how much longer.

Loving you always (I hope),
Me
