Moving Forward to Another Phase of Life

It's gonna be a really lengthy and boring post just to update my life on this forsaken diary of mine.

The past 2-3 months was pretty tough for me. I've been struggling hard to stay alive and sane while juggling between studies, work, relationship, friends and being socially involved. The stress was really bad that I get nightmares almost every night and barely sleep 5 hours a night. I broke down almost every other day and get very dramatic mood swings. But I'm glad to say that I've pulled through the final phase of my degree, the toughest 10k dissertation that procrastination made worse, and I'm now awaiting for a hopefully fair pass followed by my graduation. 

I've learnt a lot during these 2-3 months. 

It was really tiring, especially when the start of my job was situated close to the deadline of my dissertation. While I'm stressing out on researches and word counts for my assignment, I was concurrently learning new things from my workplace everyday as I finally take up the role of a Marketing Executive. Trying out the things I've learnt from my degree in my workplace and having to stress that my amateur decisions and plans would reflect with a positive performance. 

I'm grateful for the people who stood by me, who helped me along.

My bf Mun, who had to consistently handle with my breakdowns and my mood swings. To add on, my insecurities and wild thoughts that added up to my own stress and problems. I'm thankful that he was strong enough to provide me with support and guide me along in my life and in this rs. It hasn't been easy for us, but I really want to say thank you for everything you've done and the patience and grace you've showered onto the unreasonable and willful me. 

I'm grateful for my good buddies in life. 277, 009, 747, 533, ky, for always being there to hear me rant and guide me to be a better person. Thank you for always be able to enlighten me to see my problems from another perspective and angle, and letting me realize the mistakes I've made unknowingly. Esp to 277 & 009, thank you for always being the stronger and more positive influence. 

And definitely, I'm thankful for the people who helped me in life as much as they could. My DNA, WHL colleagues, old friends, and of course, my family. 

I was initially considering to take up a masters program, but after the struggle from the last phase of my degree, I'm honestly having second thoughts. I think I'll just take a break from studies for a couple of years before considering it again hahaha.

So now that I've graduated, what's going to happen in life?

Tbh, I ain't really sure. But I'm sure that I'm gonna take a step back and slow my pace down for a month or two to rest before I start embarking on my next phase of life. Read some books, watch some drama, sing some songs. I'll definitely be back doing what I love to do - Blogging; Doing covers; Singing online;. 

That's all for now.

9D8N Thailand Trip [Bangkok] - Un Fashion Café [2015] Day VII

Fell in love with this café, so much so that it deserves a post on it's own!!

Ekkamai Soi 10, Sukhumvit 63, Bangkok 10110, Thailand
(Nearest BTS: Ekkamai BTS)
Operating Hours: 1200 - 2100

It's about a 5-10 minutes walk from the BTS station!

Take the exit to Major Cineplex and head all the way down the street 
(It's a straight walk down around 7 streets)

You should be on the right track if you see this

After a 10 minutes walk, we finally reached!
It's a separate building and it looked so distinct it's impossible to miss out.

I can't describe how fascinating the café was. 
It was like no other cafés I've been to!

The choice of food was pretty limited - pastries and coffee/tea/fruit/chocolate drinks but as the saying goes, Quality > Quantity, right? 

Up to the second level!

We ordered blueberry cheesecake and I forgot the names of the drinks lol. 
Mine was pretty refreshening but Mun's drink, that has ginger in it, tasted..weird hahahaha!

They even provide complimentary water!

This café was really chill, it felt like a much better version of Starbucks where you could just read your books or chill here with your friends without having much noise disruption. The café's atmosphere was superb! 
Mun and I hung out there for around an hour or two before heading off for our dinner!
(And no one ever came to chase us off, WHY CAN'T SG HAVE SUCH CAFES)

Nice environment + Nice atmosphere = Nice Selfies HAHAHA Rating
