Some random thoughts...

Okay, I'm awake, at 5+am, sitting on the bean bag at Senja's living room. The kids requested to stay for a night. I was here to settle my wardrobe with the contractor.



So yeah, my house is finally going to complete soon.



Also installed the bomb shelter rack! ✌🏻

Actually, I know nuts about reno, I can only pray that I don't get cheated becos I'm too chin chai already. I don't know how to see defects, neither researched about market price. I guess, I always work based on trust. 

If I don't trust a person, I'll never approach him. But if I want to "support" someone, I'll not ask about price either, unless it's very large amount and I need to see if my bank account has enough money not. Lol

And to "trust" someone, that someone has to be reliable and reachable. You cannot expect me to trust you when I can't even reach you. No response, no reply. 

This "trust" issue has been haunting me for the past 10 months. 

But what I'm sure is, without proper communication, no form of relationship can ever work out. Don't blame people for not trusting you, when you failed to even give a proper explanation. 

If one person claimed that you're a bastard, it might be that person's problem becos maybe he doesn't like your face. But if 10 persons claimed that you're a bastard, with all the similar stories, it's time you should reflect on yourself. 

I'm still standing by (but no longer holding on) becos I felt that he's not a bastard, and he probably has his reasons for doing the things he did. I've been trying to find out the "reasons" but to no avail. (你想要有个家, 对吗?)


I wanted to help him. Even if he's just a friend, I don't wish to see him ruin himself like that. It doesn't feel good to hear bad things about him everytime. 

Why will people come and tell me? 

Becos I've been crying and mourning for the past 10 months. Drinking everyday, just to sleep. I spoilt my own body, my nose has been bleeding frequently. They've been trying to "wake" me up. But I'm stubborn in a way whereby I want to hear from him, from his own mouth. I still give a lot of benefit of doubts. I'm still telling people that he's not a bad person. 

 
Becos I've NEVER been lidat before, NEVER.
 
I warned people I intro-ed becos I don't wish to receive anymore sudden shocking "complain". I won't be able to pick up anymore shit as I'm still picking up those previous shit. All he did was... disappeared. When people can't find him, they naturally called me. 

But most importantly, I don't wish him to wrong further. He's still young. I've loved him before. 

Loving someone is not supporting and agreeing to whatever he do, even if it's wrong. Loving someone is helping him to be the best out of him, to see him doing good and living well, even though I'm not the one by his side. 

I didn't hate nor blame him at all. 
 
He's seeing me as a bad person now, thinking that I'm trying to seek revenge or something. But sorry, I'm not such a person. If I wanted to do so, I'd have done it long ago. I've no time to plot any revenge on anyone. 

And being in the car trade now, it's not difficult to ruin his company, with all the evidences people provided me. But I didn't. I didn't even tell anyone that I was from which company before, neither tell anyone that I know him/them. 

I do my own things, they do theirs, we have nothing to do with each other. I'm lidat. It's either I care, or I don't give a fuck. 

I always believe in leaving a 后路 for people and I try to help people I cared, whichever ways I can. 

It's heart breaking to get misunderstood always. But I really hate to explain myself. 😔

Friday The 13th

My apology for the lack of update lately. Was busy with Senja's stuffs, which I'll blog about it next time.

Ouch, my car kept getting "injured" lately. I've spent a lot on "beautifying" repairs. Nah, I'm not those who take extreme care of my car, but I cannot stand scratches and dents; those obvious ones.

 
Lol, from my house gate. I thought it can be polished away, so I immediately booked an appointment for full grooming, for the next day, which is yesterday, Black Friday. ☹️

 
But it needed to be respray. It was around 1pm. I told them I'm fine to go for the respray, but I must collect the car by evening. Their slots were full. 😖

I was feeling a little helpless becos I don't wish to waste another day on my car. Then Lion suddenly replied me on a quote. So I asked him for help... 

You know, SG is really small. Lion knew the person in charge of the grooming shop I went. This shop is recommended by one of my dealer. So in another word, car trade is really small. Seems like everyone knows each other. You just needed to be LJ lang once, your name will be spread across the car trade. 

 
The white GTR used to be Lion's. His name is Ryan btw, Lion is given by me, called by me. Lol

Thank my lucky star always, Lion helped me to find a shop above which can do for me immediately. So I went up to leave my car, then Raymond came to pick me to collect customer's car from Tampines, to Wcega. 

 
LOL, don't have to buy recording cam liao, got it free from my customer! This dealer is funny, he bought me a tooth whitening kit. 😂

After that, we went for lunch at this apparently very popular but I've never heard of it before cafe, the so called Harry Potter cafe; 1094 Platform. If he didn't bring me there, I don't think I'll know about this cafe in this entire life. Lol



Very unique but food is so-so only, not I say one. I don't know lah, cos I'm not so particular over food one. But I'm a hawker person, hawker food FTW, lol.

At 5:15pm, my car is ready! Woohoo! Less than 4 hours! Very grateful to always receive helps with just a phone call. It's not due to my looks, it's becos I'm a very steady person. I don't push blames nor hide when problem arises.

 
@ Level 45. Everything is good about this place, except that stupid (iPhone) GPS brought me a few merry-go-rounds before I found it. Damn!

 
He's my... friend, hahaha. No sparks or chemistry between us, just a friend whom I can confide in. Actually, I can get along with many people leh, but not many know the real me. They only see the strong, cheerful and sampat side of me. I don't show, I don't show my weakness to everyone.

Ah btw, he's single and available! 1983 one! Has a good career, quite well paid one. Any taker? LOL but he said he's damn fussy hor, when it comes to relationship.

I realised, I'm only interested in hardworking men. I cannot stand men who sleep their life away. He doesn't has to be rich, nor very good looking, but he has to be very hardworking, more hardworking than me. LOL

Bali Escapade

Date: 20th - 22nd December 2016

Before I start, I've a confession to make...


TADAH. X'mas (excuse only lah) gift for myself! Nobody buy for me so I buy for myself loh. 🙊

Heh. No idea how to start about Bali becos I didn't plan for anything, I just follow blindly, as usual.


But I managed to take hell loads of selfies becos... I feel like it? Lol



First meal upon arriving Bali! It's crispy duck (one of their popular dish) but it taste and look like ikan bilis. It's good though! Sedup! 👍🏻

Address: 
Bebek Tepi Sawah restaurant 
Krisna Kuliner Jl. Raya Raya Tuban







The villa I stayed; Bhuwana Ubud Hotel. It's located at Ubud, a more ulu part of Bali. Nature themed villa which I don't really like, cos I prefer the sea!!! I'm a cancerian, a crab, I love the sea. 

Address: 
Bhuwana Ubud Hotel
Jl. Pengosekan, Ubud, ID, Indonesia

Another thing I dislike about nature themed is cos there are a lot of weird insects. My blood is mosquitos' favourite. 


The very LARGE room. Got bathtub but I don't dare to use cos a lot of gah gah. 



我的感想! 😬





Over ordered dinner for the first night. Apparently, PORK ribs is also one of the popular dish in Bali. Bali is not a Muslim country. 

Address: 
IIGA WARUNG
Jl. Raya Mas, Ubud - Bali







3 hours of recharge & rejuvenate. Massage, Balinese body wrap, flower bath + another horrible 洗头 inside the hotel. The 洗头 there really CMI. 💩 The massage is not bad though! 


Was so disappointed that I didn't managed to go to the beach for a romantic dinner cos it suddenly rain. While waiting for the rain to stop, I took about 627527 selfies lor. Hur, I want to go beach. 😭



Luckily, the seafood dinner nearby was satisfying. 👍🏻👍🏻


Here. 10 mins drive from my hotel. Food in Bali is not so cheap actually, compared to Krabi. But still, cheaper than SG.

Address:
Coco Bistro
Ubud Raya, Ubud, Indonesia 



Buffet breakfast on the last day, nothing much & nothing fantastic though. Just a friendly reminder, this hotel/villa don't serve any alcohol. You can "smuggle" in lah.



Bali largest shopping mall; Mall Bali Galleria. It's really really LARGE. No address needed cos everyone there will know about this mall. 


It's my first time to Bali and I'm kinda impressed by the airport. I thought it will be like Bangkok but no leh. 

Overall, I enjoyed but I think it could be better. I didn't get to go beach! 😭 But it was a total relax trip, away from the harsh Singapore. 


Byebye Bali! See you again, but not anytime soon. Cos I want to go to places that I've never been to before. 

On the list...
1) Maldives
2) Borocay
3) Santorini
4) Lang Tengah
5) Koh Samui (someone jio me go liao!) 

🤔 Will my mother kill me? 😂
