270414 Eventful day

It has been a rather eventful day today. It started out rather great! I had breakfast at home bought by my dad, I had enough time to leisurely arrive at studio, I even dressed up to a hip hop theme too. Lunch was at a cozy new place in TTDI. Then as I headed home...

BANG! Next thing I knew I was at the police station doing the report and going down to Tun H S Lee Traffic Station doing statement. I wasn't at fault, the accident involved 5 cars back to back with me being in the middle (third car). The car last in line hit us all. Luckily for us only our cars took the impact and suffered. We (the people) are all okay.

Came home to unwind watching #starawards20 and enjoy family's company.

As I reflect on this, I am grateful for:

1. I am unharmed and alive. Coz this could totally take a bad turn! You never know what accidents could end up.

2. I have great friends and family. Thanks to both Danny & Jazz who were with me at the start and I asked them to leave first knowing they had an appointment for dinner. Being there with me at first hand really just outs me at peace coz sometimes you do not have a clear head after getting a shock.

3. The nice people I encountered. This I'm referring to the other drivers involved in the accident. Thanks to En. M and family who guided me all the way to Tun H S Lee Traffic Police Station. The guy at the police station who guided us all the way to meeting the officer in charge (although I know that he was trying to get business from me).

4. I think we managed to get the things done fairly quickly despite being on a weekend, the roads partially closed for President Obama's visit and all.

I believe everything happens for a reason. I just hope that this small incident is to take its place for a big incident. As the saying goes:大事化小、小事化无。

Tomorrow will be a better day. All bad things will come to an end. Fighting!

Korean Language

I finally found back the motivation I needed to studying back Korean. Not only to communicate better with Seon Young but to also learn from my very first Korean teacher. I found Jane!

I took my first lesson with her (more than 5 years back) and it is through her that I feel my foundation for Korean is there (not exactly solid as I had forgotten most part of it). We talked for about an hour updating on our lives and it was real joy to see her again! I had a gut feeling it was her but seeing her in the flesh was awesome. And she remembered me which is double yay!

I can't wait to embark on my Korean Language with her in the next level although she will be taking over the last 3 classes. Woohoo! Let the journey begin.


March 2014 Weddings

There were 3 weddings in March 2014 which were on the weekends back to back which kick started the whole wedding scene for me.

1. Ex-colleague Chia's wedding
The wedding was quite a small scale and I was quite surprised that she put me and another ex-colleague at the table right in front of the stage (and the speaker too). Felt so happy for her! 😘🎉

2. La-Sallian Master Ong's wedding
This was the wedding that I was looking forward to simply because it was a La-Sallian affair. It was always fun to attend La-Sallian functions as you can expect lots of laughter from start to end. Totally enjoyed myself. I must point out the video for the morning session was beautifully done. All of us agreed. It was enjoyable to watch.

3. Colleague Yuen Ching's wedding
This was more like work related function but we enjoyed it nonetheless because everyone put down their designation and came out as friends. I must mention that the food that night at Oriental Pavilion was simply delicious! The names were quite apt and lovely. The first 4 dishes literally blew me away; especially the first dish and the fish dish. Oh the fish, I'm salivating just thinking about that fish. 😂

Blessed marriage to all!
