Yesterday’s cause of today’s hangover... which might have also triggered my tension headache which lasted the whole day. Nikka really doesn’t work for my constitution. 200% confirmed hangover every time I drink it.
Didn’t make it to the gym despite psyching myself the entire afternoon(albeit in bed), but managed to get my ass off the bed to clean the house and made the intended post-gym dinner - black pepper crispy baked chicken, and garlic-loaded paprika baked broccoli. *Burp* #TGIS
Found the pictures taken by the professional photographer from our Christmas party! Even better than the ones on my phone.
Late one in the office when the boss is around = alcohol and 下酒菜.
After yesterday’s bad day with a fellow manager, today’s catchup with our boss’ on-point inputs leaving me in awe, plus encouragements from one of the Heads, AND the boss telling me I’ll have to try to almost lead the meeting with our client tomorrow(with him in attendance) = major boost in spirits.
I'd like to see you in the morning light
I'd like to feel you when it comes tonight
Now i'm here and I'm all alone
Still I know how it feels
I'm alone again
Tried so hard, to make you see
But I couldn’t find the words
Now the tears, they fall like rain
I'm alone again without you
Alone again without you.
When frustrated, sweat. Was smacked down at this morning’s meeting on trying to lay claims to my potential deals, and felt like I took 1 step forward and 2 steps back.
Went at lunch to bang out a quick leg day - 100 reps drop set on squats from 70kg, superset with 20kg kettlebell swings, then calf lifts and leg presses.
Felt a bit better, then right at 5pm when I spoke to a colleague in Malay because we were talking about commission, and a male Caucasian colleague immediately took offence and we ending up having a shouting match for 5mins because he thought I was bitching about him - the last things I spoke to him about was breakfast and my new shoes! What TF do I have to bitch about?! ARGH.
SUPER FRUSTRATED. But I refuse to cry because of the childish acts of 1 man. #deepbreath
Productive day, after all. Went for a quick swim (hence the slight burn), before a back and triceps workout 💪🏻 Even went in to the office to do a quick hour of work - Then decided to reward myself with buying Toto for tomorrow’s draw(tho I had to ask the Uncle how to fill in my order 😂) and roti prata 😬😬😬 #SoSingaporean
Thankful for an unbelievably fulfilling year for my personal growth. End 2016 saw me taking a leap of faith at a startup, and after pulling thru with it for 1 year, the experience helped cinched my current job, and I’m very, very eager and excited to see where I can go with my career now.
In 2017, I hustled and practically ran the startup on my own, moved out, sold and said goodbye to my family home for the last 17 years, had a health scare, spent time with my growing family and friends, found God, partied some, went on a much needed vacation, celebrated my birthday with many lovely friends, started a new career, got frightened by my Sister, made new friends, laughed, cursed and learnt so much.
Took a deliberate break from dating after having my heart broken last year, but with God by my side, I suppose I can give it a whirl again 🙂
But first, I’m gonna:
Hustle on and close my first deal,
Work towards a better apartment and my first Chanel bag,
Get my health in order(healthscreening, dental works),
Keep on with my workouts and achieve higher personal bests #traindirty 💪🏻
Continue to be happy, and love myself and all my close ones.
2017 has been very challenging, but I’m blessed because of the way it helped me grow. Let’s hope 2018 will still be challenging for my growth, but a lot more kinder!
A great night out! Happy to see old friends, and also be with the Friend who brought me to church and with my Sister who shares with me of Him. 2017 is summing up pretty nicely!
Yesterday’s belated white Christmas celebration and @charmaine.chua’s surprise birthday party - success! Blessed to have sisters like this ❤️ was a great night, well worth the hangover! Thank you @g_wena_ 😘😘😘
One of my favourite go-to red that’s easily available in the stores - good price, breathes well, taste great. Who says I only drink whisky? ... Actually I’m drinking this because I’m running out of Scotch. But hey Happy Boxing Day!!
#gymettiquette#saynotosharing: A colleague of mine uses our KL colleague’s protein stash, saying he’s helping him finish before it expires and will replace it, etc etc. Uh huh.
He recently dug into a bottle of BCAA that I thought belonged to our colleague, and I even had to advise him against MIXING it with protein(he doesn’t work out a lot, so all these are pretty much a waste). Decided to start taking my supplements again and was looking high and low for this at home - before coming into the office and realising that the BCAA my colleague took without asking, is mine. 🤬🤬🤬 #PostIt ON!
