This quote is shared by one of my favorite "influencers", or should I say, marketing guru, of all time — Gary Vaynerchuk. Otherwise known as GaryVee, he's an American-based influencer who dishes out life and business advice on a very aggressive note. He's either always saying fuck this, fuck that, fuck you, or actually screaming in your ears. He's also extremely interrogative and asks piercing questions that cut through all that BS. I would say I kinda like this approach, not because I'm submissive (lol), but because I...

Time check: 11:54 pm. I've been seated in front of my table for over 20 minutes, thinking hard about what to write for today's post. I'm stressed because I want to make this post serious and valuable for anybody reading it. I recall this nagging voice in my head - write what matters to your readers, not yourself! - and proceed to write garb that I have no particular interest in. Meh. Delete, delete, delete. I have no interest in any of that. So to kickstart my writing...

Writing is stressful. Yup, I who own this blog have said it. Writing is indeed stressful. I know, you might be thinking, didn't you create this blog to write? I did. And truth to be told I'm stressed out about what to write. Which explains the sporadic updates and long hiatuses. I know writing or blogging on this site should be this cathartic exercise. But I sincerely have no idea how to keep it chill without having some *war flashbacks* from my JC days, during which I took H2...

Adult friendships are odd. Not all friendships from your schooling days survive adulthood. As we embark on different trajectories, our perception of ourselves and the world changes. Many at times we deviate in our expectations and outlook and look towards newer friendships to give us that “understanding” we require. And I’m not surprised to find myself befriending more people from my workplace, simply because we relate to each other more. Like having the same complaints about a certain client, or having the same frustrations from doing a repeated...

My work and life has morphed into one. Or rather, I've subsumed my entire life into just, work. I used to have multiple email accounts. One that I use for everything else — online purchases, registering of new accounts, signing up for useless newsletters, etc. The other, I use it for the sake of having extra space on Google Drive, and for having a nice @gmail.com username. I wanted something I could resonate with and something less serious. I have another email account registered under my alma mater,...

what kinda shit luck is this?  I seriously am so jacked up by this whole graduating in the midst of a pandemic thing. I thought I would at least be able to experience the whole funemployment phase in coming May — like having a farewell party with my classmates and friends, a seriously insane grad trip followed by a proper convocation. If I'm lucky, I might possibly get out of that funemployment phase after say, two months?   Boom. Coronavirus strikes. Nothing is normal. Panic!  Ugh...

It took me one whole month to figure out what I wanted to write on this space because I was lost most of the time. Both literally and figuratively. Besides losing my way around classes because NUS seemed to have a way of challenging me on my last semester by situating my classes in the most ulu sections of FASS, I've been lost in my own headspace for quite a while now. Many times I allow my mind to drift. I find it harder to concentrate on anything....

Hey all. After reading Jemma's commentary on the movie, I felt slightly compelled to write about my experience with the movie. So here I am, hopping on the bandwagon to throw shade on this movie. For the first time, I'm really happy to be standing with the majority. So last Friday, I watched Fall in Love at First Kiss (一吻定情) at City Square with Wei Qian and Jie Mun. As per usual, I went into the theatre with zero idea of what to expect. All I wanted that day was a tear-jerking,...
