Afternoon date with sis

Sis and I booked each other on 27 April afternoon to hang out together at a cafe. Initially we wanted to check out Habitat Coffee at Upper Thomson Road, but it was crowded and there was a waitlist which will take an hour long. We explore down down the stretch of shops and decided to try Wafflelicous and share some food. After that, we hopped over to Salted Caramel and Sis had a cup of that flavour while I got the Roasted Pistachio. I'm glad we are not sick of each other after living under the same roof and can enjoy such dates :)

Banana bread

I ate the remaining 2 pieces of banana bread that I baked 2 weeks ago and kept in the freezer. They still tasted yummy :)

Feeling 36 years and a day old

Yesterday I felt fine. Growing old is something that I have accepted as part of life. I am glad to have my family, dear friends, cats (home and community ones) and S. Today has shown me that my body is not as strong as before. I had a dull headache while rushing out some presentation slides. It didn't go away when I had lunch with 2 friends. I had to go home and miss a meeting involving my bosses and other colleagues after I puked out my lunch and still felt unwell. Is my body trying to tell me something? I feel alright now after sleeping for 2 hours. Looks like the next time I have the occasional dull headache at work, I should seriously consider pop a painkiller, or take a break.

Work trip in Brunei

Last week, I went to Brunei with my colleagues for meetings. The first night was quite relaxed that I could take a photo of my companion in the bathroom. I kept myself hydrated and ate enough and was glad no creeping headache even though on average I had 4 hours of sleep. On the last night, we admired the sunset before dinner. It wasn't a stressful trip - friendly Bruneians, nice colleagues and yummy food, but as usual I miss home, my family, Bob, cats and S.
