Finally…

If people said that a mile journey starts with small single step, I guess, I did some of my early small steps.

I obtained my Employment Pass today.

Within the last 24 hours, I was rushed here and there.

Here’s some yesterday’s flash back….

Yesterday, I was planning to go to Funan Digital Life mall, to check about my laptop. It was broken since two months ago. It was repaired and broken afterwards. However the last one, really beyond my ability. Anyway, I had my lunch then I decided to visit the clinic I had my medical check up two days ago, to see whether I can collect the result since the nurse told me in the morning that it might be finished after lunch. She told me that I can collect it after 230pm waiting the doctor to sign the result.
I was wondering, will I be able to finish all my errands by today?

[my] today’s headline

[ring ring ring]

Picking up the phone and I heard someone asked to speak to me, it’s Jenny, my company-soon-to-be HR. I can sense the exciting emotions from her voice, telling me that she received letter from MoM (Ministry of Manpower) regarding my application status.

I was accepted.

I was preparing my lunch at that time, just barely finished putting all the ingredients into the rice cooker. I was cooking brown rice with brocolli and carrot, and steamed egg. Then I checked my email, and actually, she has attached me the letter.

Somehow, I felt surge of relief.

For just one more time

In one cloudy foggy morning in Singapore,
I woke up after rolling myself over,
took my gear from my drawer,
strangely, I felt my muscle was fine no sore

Morning chit chat with my fellow housemates,
they go for a morning shower one by one,
they need to go to work,
it’s another day to go

I bid goodbye to them,
press the lift down button,
reach the first floor,
and I pause for a while

Celebrating my brother success

Metropolis Frontpage Cover

This morning I received a very good news from a friend in Surabaya, my home town. My brother was in a front page of national newspaper, Jawa Pos, for his book. I just barely spoke to him the day before, well, I called my parents since somehow both of them texted me so I decided to give them a call too.

A day to enjoy

plus a bonus ride

I woke up quite late today, around 9 am. Yesterday, I came home around 130 am in the morning which I believe broke my all the time record from Indonesia-Melbourne-Singapore. I never came home that late early in the morning. I’m not a night person and yet not so morning person either. Well, I consider myself as average person. 🙂

Honestly, I like to sleep very much. Talking about sleeping, I can sleep everywhere.. During trips, in cars, during the day even when the cars are moving :p. My friends are sometimes vexed with my sleeping habit :p

Apple pie, shaka shaka chicken and nice bus ride

Yesterday, one of my university buddies, Sandra texted me to meet out. She is in Singapore for a five day conference which started on Tuesday till Friday, and I guess, she chose to extended her stay until Sunday.

She stays in Ritz Carlton Millenia Hotel, which is located near Esplanade or City Hall MRT station. While I live in Commonwealth area. I searched using gothere.sg, and found out that I need around 40 minutes to go there by MRT and bus. It was 8 pm. So I was thinking better to stop at City Hall MRT station rather than using bus from Outram MRT station. I swiftly changed my clothes and left to Commonwealth MRT station.

Just to be..

Be Well
Be Happy
Be Safe
Be Willing
Be Able
Be Loved
Be Wild
Be Helpful
Be Yourself
and through it all, just remember to JUST TO BE

Those words were on my farewell card from one of my best friends Maree from Australia.

I met her for the first time from Monash International Student Friendship Program. The Monash staff, Renee, matched us up because we live on the same road differs by blocks. She told us that ours is the best match she ever had.
