I’ve been procrastinating waaaaay too much, played too much and even spent money on unnecessary things (I’m on a mission to save money for a July trip)!
Recently, I bought this handmade broomstick necklace (HP inspired) from Etsy:
Very pretty, madly in love with it, but later realised it doesn’t go with a lot of my outfits and the handle broke off on the first day I wore it. -,- Never mind that because I’ve already fixed it with superglue. Heh.
Also, bought my first non-sale item from Zara:
I chose the one above the knee because I’m bloody short. There are other prettier designs but not available if you want them shorter in length.
Fine, I used a voucher. If not I wouldn’t be able to afford it. Initially I purchased it for the ION Pets’ Day Out “fashion show” to match my outfit with QQ, but they didn’t want QQ to wear her yellow trench coat either. 😦 Oh well, gonna wear this in July!
In the midst of preparing for mid-terms and projects, I had the audacity to spend my nights playing LAN with Porcupine, Fung and Onion. 0,0
Before that we had New York New York, just because we’re sick of the food in AMK Hub.
We shared the biggest ice-cream bowl ever, and I didn’t even like it.
On a happier note, in February I won the second prize for International Volunteerism Photojournalism Competition 2011 with this picture I took in Nepal:
On the day we engaged in outdoor learning, a bright patch on his soiled pants caught my eye. His family was too poor to even afford needle and thread. A band-aid on his buttocks? There, problem fixed.
Eager students peer through a hole at their foreign teachers. Corruption and financial constraints have caused a severe shortage of teachers, depriving students access to precious resources. As foreign teachers, we try our best to fill the void in education, as a way to ensure progress in Nepal.
This project seeks to address the rising trend of “discarding’ old folks in Singapore. As children grow up to set up their own families, the old folks are often seen as a burden, living together and providing care for them have become a chore. Therefore many send their old folks to homes or simply house them in a 1-room HDB flat. And these ‘homes’ where they are living in, are not where their family is. And slowly, the frequency of visits reduces, eventually they will be totally severed from their children, living seperate lives.
