Calendar Girl

If I am lost for a day; try to find me
But if I don't come back, then I won't look behind me
All of the things that I thought were so easy
Just got harder and harder each day

December is darkest and June is the light but this empty bedroom won't make anything right
While out on the landing a friend I forgot to send home
Who waits up for me all through the night

Calendar Girl who's in love with the world
Stay alive
Calendar Girl who's in love with the world
Stay alive

I dreamed I was dying; as I so often do
And when I awoke I was sure it was true
I ran to the window; threw my head to the sky
And said whoever is up there,please don't let me die

But I can't live forever, I can't always be
One day I'll be sand on a beach by a sea
The pages keep turning, I'll mark off each day with a cross
And I'll laugh about all that we've lost

Calendar Girl who is lost to the world
Stay Alive
Calendar Girl who is lost to the world
Stay Alive

January, February, March, April, May
I'm alive

June, July, August, September,October
I'm alive

November, December, you all through the winter,
I'm alive
I'm alive

Changes, I've never been good with change

Earlier this week, I chopped off my long hair and dyed my hair a darker brown shade.

I've had light blond-ish hair for so long, it still feels really strange sporting dark hair. And... I really miss my super long hair. My hair had been so long it extended past my waist. But my family were telling me that my hair was starting to grow out of shape. Hence the abrupt decision to cut my hair drastically. 

As for the color, I felt like I needed change? I guess ending my internship indicates a new phase of my life, and a physical change really makes me feel much more refreshed and ready to embrace the inevitable discomfort of drastic change.

Changes... I've really never been good with change.

So last Friday I officially concluded my internship with Citi. 

I was an intern with the Regional Corporate Affairs team for the past 6 months.

We had a really bittersweet farewell on Friday.

I had remarkably pleasant colleagues whom I've developed strong bonds with, and awesome intern friends who have made lunch something to look forward to daily.

Throughout this internship, I gained golden experiences and learned so much.

Thanks to everyone who made this internship such an amazing one!

Malacca Diaries Part Two - 1

Earlier, I uploaded my Malacca Diaries Part One!

Here comes Part Two - 1 of my Malacca Diaries ~

We woke up early the next morning, bright with anticipation for the long day ahead.

Taking a picture as if I was going to eat the hi-tea buffet hahaha :X

Our first stop that day was to a Dimsum place for breakfast. 

The eatery was meant to be somewhat famous. We were not surprised to see a long queue when we arrived.

And so we queued.

I mentioned earlier in Part One that the Malacca natives had a unique way of ordering. This applied to the dimsum as well. 

The dimsum was DELICIOUS. 

The portions were small but satisfying. My favorite dimsum was the Liu Sha Bao. 

The Liu Sha Bao oozed with saccharine goodness when I pried it upon. Unfortunately, my butter fingers caused the warm liquid within to burn my little finger. I almost dropped the Bao in terror.

When I finally tasted the incredible Bao, I was instantly addicted. I had to order two additional plates to satisfy my intense craving.

After breakfast, we went to a popular shop - Nadeje for some Crepe Cake!

Nom nom nom.

I can safely say that the crepe cakes were comparable to Lady M's. It was luscious and creamy. Very yummy indeed!
