23 and still musing

(PHOTO: C. WONG)

A much belated birthday post because I prophesized a busy October and boy did I receive it. It didn’t help that laptops do not stand to be watered like living plants and mine has not recovered from an accidental spill—I’m currently shopping around for a replacement. Fortunately, nothing has been lost and I can still complete papers and check emails without pulling my hair out.
Here are a few reflections and self-musings now that things have quietened down.

Sunburnt paradise


I haven't had a chance to go through all the photos from my island-hopping trip in Thailand, but here's a glance and a glimpse into the amazing villa we stayed at in Phuket.

Cue sunburnt outfits and sandy-fused hair.

Smize

“Why don’t you smile more?”

“Are you going to be warm enough?”

If I had a dollar for every time the photo-bug prompts me with these wary questions, I would have my own robotic team of traveling heaters by now. Alas, the age-old “it’s not part of aesthetics response” is truly dated now, so I will just come out and let you on a secret as to why I rarely ever smile, and probably why I need to start now.

Case of the battle fatigues

(PHOTOS: V. NG)

You look like you're heading into war, my photographer for the day points out. The military coat doesn't help sway the army-esque get up either. She has a point, although what good these fatigues would be as camouflage I would have no idea. Militia uniforms have never looked so on point (albeit unpractical for skirmishes).

Just another Sunday, readying for a battle.
