July, August, September 2014

What, it’s mid-October already??!

July was somewhat a five-week month and I spent the bulk of it struggling with juggling two jobs. Everyday I found myself in doubt, wondering how I am to survive two more months of working seven days a week. It was so mentally exhausting, I eventually pleaded with Dr Ban to let me quit at the end of August :p

Got a day off due to Hari Raya Puasa falling on a weekday. Family outing to Botanical Gardens.

The first three weeks of August remained equally depressing. Clay, flowers and Harry Potter were all that kept me sane.

Melanie and I got reprimanded by Hitler during my last week at IMCB – we were too naive. And Ailing treated us to a farewell lunch at Big Mama.

Surprise from colleagues at the flower shop. Cheryl and June even wrapped me a birthday hamper!* :’) EGG also returned from Beijing (for good?).

Just when I thought I could finally get started on the portfolio, September got consumed by spring cleaning, house renovations and wedding preparations. My favourite month was gone in just a blink of an eye.

Didn’t even get to say goodbye to the faithful desk which served me for 11 years.

I died a little inside when I decided to upload this. First ever attempt at watercolour and I tried painting a landscape haha! 不自量力 :p

Second and third attempts. Forget landscapes, let’s try something a little more manageable!

Now, half of October has vanished! Three and a half more months to submission, please let there be no more distractions and procrastination :p
