Reflection on 2015

December 19th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

2015 is coming to an end… just 3 more days of work till the Christmas/New Years break~ WOOHOO! :D

I’ve now experienced one full year of marriage life, and I can honestly say it’s one of the best things that’s happened to me :) Usually when I look back at a year, I point out things like holidays and milestones, but this time it’s more of a general feel. The highlights were the ‘normal’ every day things. I guess life has been treating me well : )

Since moving out, I feel like I’ve grown and learned a lot. I’m 28 and I’m finally starting to feel like an adult. Sort-of~ XD. I’m loving the freedom and independence that comes with that. The responsibilities like house chores and cooking really doesn’t bother me that much. I actually feel a great sense of satisfaction when I cook a meal, or get up early on a weekend to do the laundry. Hah, I sound like a housewife 8D

I also love my cat. A lot :3 Just seeing Champy’s cute face is enough to lift my mood~ he’s the cutest, funniest little cat ever!

And of course.. I owe a lot of it to Hub :3  Thank you Hubby :)

Brand new Nexus 5X :D

December 4th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Today I received an early Christmas present from Hubby, and I’m super ecstatic!! It was a toss up between a Nexus 5X or another trusty HTC (M8)…but in the end, I let Hubby decide and the Nexus 5X it was! It’s currently installing all the apps I’ve got on my old phone~ and it’s doing it automatically. HOW COOL IS THAT? 8D It even copied over my wallpaper! Impressive.

I also loveeeee the finger print scanner. Oh my god. This is life changing :’D

Hubby picked the nice mint version (the other two being black and white)~ and it’s so nice :D~ It matches my Fossil watch too! woo!

Ah, I can’t wait to fully use it and play around with the camera :D Just gotta wait for my screen protector and case to arrive ^^

Meeting Yuki~ The Japanese spitz

September 17th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Last Sunday, Hubby and I went to Sompie’s place to meet her new little pup Yuki, a Japanese spitz :D This little guy girl looks like a mini polar bear X3 How adorable! She was 11 weeks old when we saw her. Growing fast! I am pretty scared of dogs though… so I kind of just froze and sweated away while the little one was licking my legs. XD Sorry Yuki, it’s me not you ;D

Friday Tennis

August 29th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Last night Hubby, Burpy, Buns and I played tennis at the Auburn courts, and it was a lot of fun! Hubby and Burpy have been playing together for a few weeks now, and I’ve always been meaning to join them.. but winter is kinda cold :P

Well, since the coldness is almost over and Buns was in town, we decided to all go play together :D We started playing at 7.30pm until the lights went off at 10.30pm. Time sure flies :O My body was in so much pain~ THAT’S WHAT YOU GET FOR SLACKING OFF ON EXERCISE JEN XP. ehem. I’ll try do this more often :3 I do miss the weekly Friday night squash sessions we used to have.

There’s not much opened around this hour in Auburn (apart from kebab shops)~ so we had a Maccas dinner. We hung out til midnight when we realised we left our poor cat inside (away from its litter tray ^^”) We were so sure Champy would’ve peed or pooped somewhere in the kitchen. To our surprise, everything was still intact when we got back :D GOOD BOY CHAMPY. We are so proud of you.

Back to a darker shade

June 7th, 2015

Dear Chibi,

Today I decided to try out a new hair salon, and since I was getting a cut I thought I may as well get my hair dyed too (there’s ample regrowth at the top!) I got it last dyed 3 months ago, and back then it was much more red. I do like the browny-red look, but this time I wanted something more brown.

Here is the result:

It turned out much darker than what I had in mind.. but it’s kind of nice too :3 What do you think? Hubby really likes the darker shade.

Dear Chibi,

For Christmas Eve, I invited my bridesmaids over for some home-cooked lunch and spent the day catching up with them and reminiscing about the wedding day :) I’m really enjoying married life, and having a place of our own. I feel so lucky and blessed :)

I built a Billy Dollhouse :D

July 21st, 2014

Dear Chibi,

About 2 months ago, I started building a little dollhouse, which I primarily worked on during my lunch break or down time. This personal side project came about when Robbie put the kit on my desk and asked if I wanted it. He had it lying around his desk for years and wanted to throw it away, so I happily accepted it without knowing what I was getting myself into… Not until I opened it anyway! It turns out the instructions were all in Japanese… and I don’t have the slightest clue when it comes to building things! Determined to make it happen, I went into an Art Supplies store and bought some glue and brushes. After many hours of trial and error, google translating, blu-tacking, taping, cutting, dissolving resin pellets and gluing… we have our finished product!!
