Instagram Snapshots ~*January, February, March 2016*~




From 2016 onward, I would post quarterly Instagram Snapshots instead of monthly ones. For more regular updates, follow me on Instagram and Facebook.

I figured that my blog should not always be updated once a month with only Instagram snapshots as it would get too boring to see repeat posts on my Instagram and blog.

I used to spend a lot of time during the weekend and public holidays, and pockets of time after work to do blog stuff. Doing blog stuff meant editing of photos, crafting of posts, replying to comments and visiting blogs. All these take up lots of time but to me, this is time well spent as I really enjoy blogging.

Nevertheless as I age, I spend more time on building up my health and getting a lot more sleep than what I was used to. I could no longer sleep 3-6 hours a day and still feel fresh. If I have gotten only a few hours of sleep during the weekdays, I would spend many hours over the weekend catching up on sleep debt.

I've been neglecting my blog but getting a lot more sleep. I do feel bad for neglecting my blog yet I feel good for pampering myself with sleep. But then I would feel unhappy if I do not update my blog as regularly as before.

The vicious cycle continues...

On top of getting enough rest, I also make sure I get my dose of exercise too. I've recently discovered that I enjoy yoga and pilates tremendously. I feel really positive after each yoga/pilates session and I would rather go for classes whenever I could find the time after work than to go home earlier to work on my blog.

Looking at how much less time I spent on my blog for the whole of last year and a quarter of this year, I feel like I need to dedicate more time to blogging. I've got so many backlog posts to share here on my blog. Some people might wonder what's the point on updating on say, my holidays that happened a few years back. My blog is my memory cache and I really want to seal these memories here for me to look back on. It is something I want to do for myself as my memory slowly fades.

Enough of random ramblings. Here's the first quarter of Instagram updates for the year.

Spent the last day of 2015 and the first day of 2016 with an amazing group of old and new frenz. It was a wonderful evening of joy and laughter. And for those who stayed on to chat and drink till dawn broke, it had been a fun sharing session. I haven't stayed up and chat with a group of people till almost 6am without feeling tired at all. Thank you VIOS for the friendship and cheers to many more years! The sun is up and it's time to sleep coz I'm getting sleepy and we gotta wake up for our STAYCATION later!

First wefie with the hub in 2016 at W Hotel @wsingapore! No time to go for a vacation in 2015 so we would do a short staycation in 2016. Hoping to feel recharged for the new year. #whotel #wsingapore #wefie #ilovemyhubby #staycation




~*2 January 2016*~
It's a gloomy rainy day and the sea breeze is blowing all the sprinkles of rainwater in. Nobody is at the awesome pool (as dubbed by frenz who's been to W Singapore) so it's time to play with the mood lighting and the Bose sound system at @wsingapore. #whotel #wsingapore #staycation #moodlighting #purplelights #boliao

OEDians, are we ready to rock our work stations with our super heroes nanoblocks? Man... These are damn tough to build. Not for long nails folks. Hubster built most of both. Batman is as cool as ever and I'll still insist that cute Raphael the Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtle is giving the finger. #nanoblocks #raphaelninjaturtle #teenagedmutantninjaturtles #tmnt #batman #darkknight

Saying goodbye to W Singapore Sentosa Cove. It's been a lazy and enjoyable 2 days to replenish all the sleep debt in 2015 and recharge for 2016. After hearing negative feedback from 3 different friends about W Singapore (the recounted incidents were really bad IMO), the hubz and I came here without expecting much and were pleasantly surprised. The service here is tip top! The various staff ranging from the concierge, check-in counters, housekeeping and restaurants were smiley and affable. Our few requests were also acceded smoothly. Save for the fact that the bed and pillows were too soft for our liking, we enjoyed every other aspect of our stay here a lot.

I went for my first Pilates class ever at the yoga studio and I nearly died along with half of the class who were new. When the instructor asked for feedback on whether the sequence was too tough for us and if she could tone it down, everyone gave constructive feedback. I simply said, "I dunno if it only applies to me but the whole of December was no exercise and lots of partying and feasting and drinking and eating and eating and eating..." Then the whole class burst out. I guess I'm not the only one. #afterworkoutselfie #healthylifestyle #eateateat

My maiden attempt to use my new Copic markers on a mini farewell card isn't that great but it isn't that bad too. Bigger canvass needed for proper blending. I've only got these 5 colours to play with and I'm already coveting for more! Playing with Copic markers would be a really expensive hobby. #copic #copicmarkers #mylittlepony #unicorn #pastel #mydoodle #amateurart #nofilter #needbiggercanvas

Good afternoon! Upon reminder by some good people on Instagram, this is my 1000th post on Instagram. It has been quite a fun journey here

My first 3 private photos were posted 194 weeks ago (about 4 years) when I used Instagram only for the filter. After which, there was a significant standstill. Then, I started posting more often and making my account public after seeing many of my blog friends both with running and defunct blogs on Instagram and being encouraged by some to hop on the IG bandwagon

To all my blog frenz, there's a short message for you on my latest blog post. Clickable link in IG profile. I reconnected with many blog frenz who do not blog anymore and also with current blog frenz. It is a great way to continue to keep ourselves updated on IG when we are too busy to catch up on blogs

I connected with people of similar interests whom i could perhaps call IG frenz. I love all the meaningful 2-way engagement with people who reply on their posts and people who comment on mine

I appreciate all my followers who frequently have activity on my posts and would try to return the favour whenever possible

To my inactive followers, I would love to see more activity from you. Either that, or you could unfollow me. It's perfectly ok

I'm somewhat surprised to see people whom I know or are not complete strangers unfollowing me. Perhaps my posts are just too bimbotic or my contents are just not their cup of tea. For me personally, I don't unfollow people I know as I feel that it's akin to unfriending on FB. Well, to each their own

I'm always thrilled whenever I get likes, comments, photo taken and credited, special mention and followers from establishments I visit. I appreciate it when these establishments engage their customers

All in all it has been an amazing experience here on IG connecting with people from all over the world. Thank you for the friendship. Cheers to the next 1000th!

Longchamp Le Pliage Neo in navy blue medium is my first bag purchase after being on a spontaneous bag shopping hiatus for the past 3 years

I wanted a dump-everything-in-it-bag on occasions when I go for sports after work

I LOVE the classy navy blue colour

I LOVE the nondescript sheen

I LOVE how the bag holds its structure pretty well when zipped and left standing unlike many Longchamp bags

I LOVE the shoulder straps for the sporty look

I LOVE the fragrant leather smell from the flap

I LOVED how I envisaged it to be a practical everyday bag but OMG how wrong I was

This bag is NOT PRACTICAL when put on the field test. The bag is so difficult to unzip and zip when carried cross body, sling on one shoulder and on the arm. It is so difficult to reach for my things inside. Even taking my ezlink card in and out of the bag is so challenging. The flap which smell I love so much kept getting in the way when opening the bag

My idealistic practical bag turned out to be anything but practical

That Group That Shall Not Be Named (aka AVJ) is indeed meeting up a lot more than once a year. Kitchenette is great and we should continue to trawl the whole Novena for more eateries so that we could hang out longer! #galpals #ilovemyfriends #christmasoverthenewyear #kitchenette

Indeed, sleep is the best medicine

After sleeping almost half the Saturday away, I've stopped coughing, sneezing and blowing my nose too much. The lumpy pain in the throat gave way to minor scratchy discomfort. The nausea stopped when sleeping... Duh... And the best part of it are the subsiding of pain in the left of the head, eye and jaw/tooth. Maybe to the hubz, my groaning and whining stopped too

And cross fingers... I'm trying as much as possible to avoid synthetic drugs. So it's just Olive leaf extract and TCM medication, together with loads of sleep

Sleep... You and I have lots to catch up!

Purple hair update

My hidden 3-tone purple hair taken under sunlight streaming from window about 3 months after the colour job

The reddish purple and violet purple have faded the most with some parts turning GOLDEN LION TAMARIND at the ends esp after soaking in the pool

The indigo (bluish purple) streak is still going on strong but not very visible in nightlight and many indoor lighting

My dark brown base colour which faded to a lighter brown did not fade further

I've since included a series of non-filtered photos taken under sunlight, warm and cool indoor lighting as requested by some. Funky colours no longer only last for days and weeks

Now I'm tempted to do something more before CNY though it would still be nondescript enough for work

Peek a boo purple hue is turning pinkish. Gonna do something more to my hair before the Chinese New Year but no inspiration yet. I like how my stylist Leslie from @privatehairstudiosg tastefully did my nondescript shades of purple the last time round. And then for the past few weeks, friends had been tagging me and sending me videos of hidden multicolor hair asking me to try those. Hahahaha. Nondescript, people, nondescript. Maybe I'll just touch up more purple. :p

Annual belated Christmas meet up with @tinsfans. So much to yak about! We should make it monthly! #christmasoverthenewyear #galpals #ilovemyfriends




~*24 January 2016*~
My current hair is a more classy black/dark brown and deep purple combined. We didn't do any colour rework at the salon coz whatever I wanted required rebleaching

My colours were still going strong and it would be a waste to subject them to rebleaching so I did colour toning in the end

The toner with purple in it adds gloss to the hair, making my hair look shiny with an overall darker look. The toner would fade in about a month and by then I hope all my colors would fade evenly. I'm really excited to start on my new colours after that with my stylist Leslie at @privatehairstudiosg

What a fulfilling day! Settled some urgent issues. Ran some errands. Did 1 pilates and 1 yoga class. I was supposed to go to the bank to exchange for new notes to bao ang pow for the Chinese New Year but the bimbotic me decided that doing my nails is more important than going to the bank coz today is the last day to use my gelish package coz of the "no using 10 days before Xmas and CNY" clause. I keep looking at my 招财猫 (fortune kitty) and smiling like how it is smiling. Too cute! #chinesenewyearnails #cny2016 #cnynails #cnynails2016 #fortunecat #招财猫 #nailart #catlover #ilovecats

Cat theme 2016 desk calendar
Audio used: River Flows in You by Sungha Jung

My cat theme desk calendar at work always makes me wanna go out to buy Copic markers or water colours to colour/paint some sweet images like those found in here

Special thanx to my cute dad who helped me flip the calendar while I snapped photos of it. He found whatever I was doing amusing when I told him I intended to put these photos in action

Kutusita Nyanko Schedule Book 2016
Audio used: River Flows in You by Yiruma

Remember my complaints about Kinokuniya not bringing in the type of schedule books I wanted 3 years back? http://iconosquare.com/p/910474937384963867_20808714

Last year, Kinokuniya must have heard enough feedback from customers and brought back their popular Japanese schedule books. Those light, thin, spineless with cute illustrations of muted colours and enough space at dates to write down notes. Lots and lots of varieties! They are priced slightly cheaper than before too and I got 3 all at once for me and my sisters. My da jie @kappo77 and I chose this Kutusita Nyanko one as it was the only cat one available. It is not Mixed Cats but still, I love it. The friends around me have stopped using schedule books. "Key into your phone la" was what they said but I'm still a pen and paper gal

Tarepanda Schedule Book 2016
Audio used: If I Could See You Again by Yiruma

My sis @kezel Tarepanda schedule book

I used to like Tarepanda a lot and was deciding between this and the Kutusita Nyanko one. We were spoilt for choice. I must have spent a good half an hour at the schedule book counter snapping photos of the various shortlisted ones and sending to my sisters to choose. And don't remind me that I missed out December page. I realised it when I was flipagramming the photos and by then I've already given my sis the book

It took me so many years of Christmas, Lunar New Year and National Day to realize that I really need a red dress in my wardrobe. So last year, I bought 3 red dresses over the course of one week and discovered that 3 is still not enough. This is one of them from Pandora's Box. I love the collar zip of this dress. Zip up for a poised look. Zip down for a more feminine look.

We had a super yummy steamboat BBQ dinner at the hub's 大伯's house. Still thinking about the delicious soup and marinated meat!
Posting this one day late on IG coz I came home with the longest tummy pain ever that is still happening as I'm typing this. It's strange coz I ate more rubbishy CNY goodies on Day 1 and none on Day 2. Still trying to cross and check if I'm gluten intolerant and which food works and doesn't work.

So folks, let me bring your attention to this simple dish of stir fried garlic kangkong from PeraMakan. It is awesome to the max!

Why feature a kangkong dish in a Peranakan restaurant? That's because all their other traditional Peranakan dishes are so good that I would rather focus on how they have made such a simple vegetable dish something to shout about.

As the kangkong was dished out onto the table, wok hei fragrance wafted into our nostrils. And the wok hei taste... Omg! It continued to tantalize the taste buds. This kangkong has more wok hei taste than any other zi char dish I've ever eaten.

I just had this a few days ago when we celebrated @ange1ajane birthday and I was craving so much for it that I brought the hub here for dinner today.

Just a simple dish of kangkong...

Having a date with me, myself and I over a delectable lunch at Maccha House after medical appointment. They revamped their menu and didn't have the salmon ikura avocado salad meal anymore. Sad max! Pork ginger rice set seldom goes wrong and damn I'm right. Light and yummy! 😋

Whatever one posts on social media isn't the full depiction of one's life and being morbid, I really wanna talk about blood. My blood always spurt out a lot more than the required vials. I am better off donating blood. I could take a picture but then you would rather look at delicious pork ginger rice set than a plaster with blood leaking out on two corners right?

Whenever the hubz has pesto pasta craving, we would wind up at @pastajsg. It was the hub's first meal for the day and he lapped up everything like a wolf which hadn't eaten for days. As for me, I had such a filling breakfast and stupidly ordered a new dish -- wholesome chicken soup pasta. The soup is wholesome but I couldn't finish my meal. Waste food!

Hubz said he wanted to eat a good meal before he flies off and so we did.
First time eating Sayori sashimi aka Japanese Half Beak. It is by far the BEST SASHIMI we have ever eaten! Firm and sweet flesh with a clean taste. We never expected such lean fish could make such mean sashimi.
Sumiya -- Singapore's First Irori Genshiyaki which is Japan's ancient style of grilling over charcoal flame -- was an accidental discovery. We tried lots of new dishes which I won't post on Instagram coz this place deserves a whole blog post on its own.

Craving for the Squid Ink Risotto at @monobistro right now.

I don't usually order risotto as I do not like mushy rice that could easily go wrong. The risotto here changed my mind. The rice was wonderfully flavourful with an impeccable texture. I also loved the juicy succulent scallops, alfalfa and beans which added varied texture to the dish. And you have to agree that everything at Monochrome Fusion Bistro is Instagram worthy.

Blogged about Monochrome Fusion Bistro and all the lovely company in the first quarter of 2016. Clickable link in Instagram profile.

Happy Easter!

Instagram is updating to an algorithmically-ordered feed. This means that it will show the most popular posts on your feed instead of displaying posts in the old chronological manner.
This also means that if you are following lots of popular accounts, the poor peasant accounts like mine might not appear on your feed as frequently.
I'm not too sure if turning on my post notifications would help but since everyone on Instagram be like "turn on notifications if you still want to see my posts", I'll be like everyone too!
PS: This image is created by me. If you are going to screengrab it, I would appreciate if you could credit me.

  6. I only scanned the post. I'm sorry. I've always enjoyed reading everything here. But I feel like I don't have any energy, like everything is too much for me. Definitely not myself.

    1. You don't have to be sorry, Rick. You are not obliged to read everything. I hope that the challenges you are facing now have calmed and that you are able to manage everything in stride. It sucks not to be yourself. =( I can totally relate to that. Hugz buddy. xo

I love reading sincere comments and hearing your voice. While blatant self promotion of blogs and follow for follow requests are not advisable, I would love if you leave a mark here with a trackback link so that I could connect with you. I reply to comments here or on your blog so don't forget to check back on replies! =)
