Instagram Snapshots ~*September 2013*~

In the blink of an eye, it is October. Time to wake those Green Day boys!



As for me, September was anything but sleepy. September was nothing but hectic and October would see more busy-ness coming in. On top of my daily tasks at work, I'm managing an event which would be held at the end of this month and as time passed, the scale of the event simply magnified. My SM said that all work has to be put down to manage this event, but that doesn't mean that I'm allowed to put my daily tasks aside and completely ignore them. They still have to be done after tending to the pressing tasks for the event. I'm often leaving the office when the sky is dark and bringing my work laptop home to work on. Adding on to it are my after-work commitments and I really need to start cloning myself soon.

Meanwhile, here is a summary of what happened in September. Well, even my Instagram photos in September have significantly decreased in numbers.

A personalized gift from "undisclosed" (blotted out by the flower bokeh). It's a NETS Flashpay card depicting one of my favorite artists-- Audrey Kawasaki. Thank you "undisclosed". I'm so happy that the picture I've chosen turned out to make the card look wooden. Love the effect!

Throw back Thursday-- I finally confessed to my dad that I had once upon a time secretly took Class 2B riding lessons just so that I could use my bro-in-law's @gnahiy BABY BLUE Vespa to transport myself around to nearby places. My dad didn't even flare up at me and so I told him that I gave up in the end. It was too tiring and difficult to learn on the sly. And of course, the motorbike was a lot heavier than a scooter.

This meet up with @tinsfans finally materialized! Soooooooo happy for everything that's going on in her life now! *hugz*




~15 Semptember 2013~
Hong Kong desserts, nerdy glasses and expired Polaroid film. @tinsfans, finally you've got new Polaroid photo of us to pin beside the it-is-so-four-years-ago one on your workstation board!




~15 Semptember 2013~
Family Brunch at The Line. Whack @gnahiy's free vouchers! Yeah! Father-in-law not in sight as he was the one snapping most of the photos.

Too tired...




~18 Semptember 2013~
Before the clock strikes 12 and before I KO from sheer exhaustion, I just wanna say "Happy birthday to my dear friend who is a dog owner. I hope this puppy dog cheers you up with its soulful eyes and innocent face. *Hugz*

Checking out a relatively new eatery nearby. Left: Ribena Smoothie with Honey Balls. Right: Tiramisu Smoothie with Honey Balls.

Chicken Chop Spaghetti for him. Prawn Aglio Olio for me. Salted Egg Chicken for us. Officially FULL!

Hello grey eyes. How I miss you so!




~22 Semptember 2013~
At Conrad Oscar's to celebrate daddy and @kappo77 sis birthday. The buffet table is right in front of us but we can't eat coz my family is late!




~18 Semptember 2013~
Happy 62nd birthday to Daddy and happy forever 25th (ahem) birthday to @kappo77 sis jiejie! After last year's celebration at Trader's Hotel Cafe Biz which unfortunately stopped serving daddy's favorite oysters, he waited one whole year to suggest oysters for his bday dinner. He was really happy at Oscar's at Conrad with 6 different buckets of oysters from parts of France, New York, Australia etc. It was also a blessing that the place was located in the heart of the F1 buzz and had a big tv screening the F1 Finals which was also daddy's favorite. Whenever he wanted more action, he would step outdoor and imbibe the vrooooooooooom noises from outside.




~25 Semptember 2013~
Somehow, I got tasked to design big boss's birthday card. I'm fast running out of ideas and so I decided to recycle the bird day hot air balloon theme from a card I did a month ago. Modified here and there and this is the final product. Good night!




~26 Semptember 2013~
Throw back Thursday-- First time celebrating Halloween in 2005. We didn't know what we were but since we were 4 gals in black, people said we were Dracula's brides plus 1. [Note: We won't be celebrating Halloween this year as the only thing Halloween about us are our old bones. That said, my Instagram throw back Thursday series would focus on my Halloween looks over the years starting from today.]




~30 Semptember 2013~
I often wonder why I take such good candid shots of others but people always take candid shots of me in the most unglam poses like when I'm opening my mouth, half blinking, having weird expressions etc. Finally, my sis had a great candid shot of me. Well, you might not agree. But if you see the rest of my candid shots, you will.

    1. It was my dream to ride a classic red, powder pink or white vespa but my bro-in-law's ex baby blue was just as pretty. Oh, what I meant was that scooter and motorbike licence are the same here and I had to learn with a motorbike which was really a lot heavier than a scooter.

  4. I can't believe how young your Dad looks at 62. You are very lucky to have such good genes in your family. He seems like such a nice guy too. That Vespa is super cute, but I tried to ride one once and lasted about 2 seconds. I really hope you get through your huge September workload o.k and that the event goes really well. Great to find your blog today :D sparkle2day.com

    1. Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comment, Susannah. I'm glad you pop by. Yes, my dad is a very good man and a funny fellow. I got through my September workload but October is a whole new workload more intense than September.

  10. Don't forget to take some time off to relax! Work is important but not worth killing yourself over :)

    Loved this idea of summarizing your month through Instagram pictures! It gives everyone a quick update on everything, I may just steal the idea from you XD

    Haha, I find really ballsy of you to secretly take driving instructions! I would never be able to hide that, I never go anywhere other than work and my boyfriends so it would immediately arouse suspicion if I went out for a few hours all of a sudden every week.

    1. Thanx for your advice, dear. Unfortunately, I think I could only relax after end Oct. Do you have instagram a/c too? What's yours? Oh, please go ahead and steal this idea. It's not originally mine anyway. Hahaha... I do see people doing that and I think it's a really nice way to summarise the month since I'm always late in updating my blog. I would love to see a post to summarise your month too, Richelle.

      I was ballsy but it didn't last. Like what you said, it is pretty difficult to hide. I had a good friend to learn with me and my sis helped me with my gears. I hid my gloves at my family home. My good friend and I were really busy with work and it was difficult to keep up the learning, esp when we had to hide too.

  12. I love Audrey Kawasaki as well!
    I love that you took motorbike driving lessons, because I've been meaning to do so too! Driving around in a motorbike/vespa seems much cuter/badass than driving around in the car. The vespa colour is also really pretty!

    I think everyone is the busiest in September. Hopefully you're coping well!

    1. I love finding people who love Audrey Kawasaki. Are you intending to take bike lessons? That would be very cool. Do keep me updated on this! I don't have the support of my family and my hubby back then and hence learning on the sly. Hahaha... my intention was really to get to nearby places with the vespa, otherwise it would be the car or public transport for me.

  13. I love the photo of you and the baby blue vespa!!! Vespa's always remind of Italy or some part of Europe with the cobblestone roads and is so romantic, but I'm sure I'm heavily influence from romantic films and posters -.- My cousin has a motorbike and when it fell over once she had to call her dad to help her pick it back up hahahaha

    Those contacts look so good on you and blonde hair too! Was it hard to maintain? Oh my mom loves oysters and we try to bring her to get some during special occasions too and we also went to a place once that had 6 different types of oysters! Speaking of fresh oysters I want some now....

    1. It is so common to see Italians riding their Vespa. Even men in suit also ride their Vespa and they look so cute. Here in Singapore, those old classic vintage vespa are usually ridden by old men. Hahaha... The hip youngsters would buy a vintage one and spruce it up like what my BIL did. Your cousin is so cool to have a motorbike but if I were to fall off my bike and not be able to pick it up, I think that's not very cool. Lol... In my country, you have to be able to pick the bike up or the instructors wouldn't pass you. They think that's an important requirement.

      Which blonde hair? The one with the grey contacts or the halloween throwback? The one with the grey contacts is my current hair colour and it is brown. The Halloween throwback one was quite a disaster after that. I had hair depression during that period of time when I insisted on perming my hair after bleaching. Hahaha... What you see in the picture wasn't permed yet. It was tonged.

      Your mum is just like my dad when it comes to oysters!
