    L’Occitane Giveaway winners

    Before I announce the results, I want to spam you guys with my pictures first haha! Anyway this was my outfit on one of the days at work,

    jumper1

    Didn’t really like the idea of jumper or dungarees because I was afraid I would look too young in them.. Haha turns out, I really did look a lot younger in this overall.
    jumper2

    Got it last week at a steal and I thought, “why not?” Haha but think I’ll only wear it once or something. Thinking of selling it away but not too sure if anybody wants it and not sure if I might wear it to Europe. Anybody wants?

    Congratulations to Yan Han and Rachel! I will send you guys an email later, and would need your relevant details in for the giftset collection. Thank you all who participated in the giveaway!!

    As promised, I will update more about my life but it is really wordy so if you want to read, please carry on:

    So I am finally done with FYP and have graduated from NTU, my convocation is happening this July. Everything feels so surreal now, 4 years just went pass like that. When I first entered school, I thought hell was gonna last forever. But I am so done and over with it. The past 4 years weren’t easy, and I wasn’t the best student haha. I have never been anyway. So… skipping lectures, sleeping in instead of attending classes in the morning, rushing my assignment datelines, working part-time, I still made it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am so glad for all my close friends and my family, for all the support they have given me. I can never ask for more.

    I have also started working, at Roy’s company. If you guys know, he runsย Ministry of Print, the bestย t-shirt printingย companyย in town so you ย guys HAVE TO find me if you all want to print t-shirts okay! Must support me other than reading my blog, hehe!! I don’t receive any special treatment in the office haha, maybe sometimes if Roy is late for work then I will be as well. But both of us stay late in the office due to the crazy amount of orders we have. Even before I started working (officially) for him, I used to stay in his office till 5am just to complete all the work. I guess that’s what happens when you run your own business. You want to ensure that everything goes well and all orders are done smoothly. Soo… other than work..

    Roy and I have also taken a step further, together. We have applied for a flat. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s a HDB BTO in case you guys are wondering because many thought we went for an EC (Executive Condominium) or condominium instead. Currently, a private housing is not within our means. We will make do with what we have and make the best out of it. We are waiting to sign the agreement of lease, which is almost the last step of attaining the flat. The house is stipulated to be completed by 2016-2017. And if you are wondering why I decided to apply the house together with Roy, it is because we have both cohabited for close to 2 years now. And we are both ready. So if any of you are thinking of purchasing a flat, you can ask me any related questions. ย I’ll try my best to answer them.

    And, I am travelling to Europe on the 23rd of June and will only be back in mid-July. Don’t miss me too much haha! I might or might not update as I am not intending to bring my laptop over. Roy might be, so I can use his laptop. But that’s not confirmed. For advertisers and sponsors, please note that I will be away and will not be responding fast to emails. So anyway back to my Eurotrip, I wasn’t planning on going to Europe but since my FYP got selected to be presented at an international research conference in Dublin, Ireland, then why not?! Don’t waste my air tickets there, fly and come back. Might as well spend some more days there. Besides, I was looking to visit Europe and this is a great opportunity!

    To my readers, I hope you are loving your life the way I am now. ๐Ÿ™‚

    xoxo,

    Hi there,

    I’m about to apply for a flat too. However, the thought of it scares me a little. You said you’ve lived with Roy for two years already. Would u be able to tell me how was it like? Does it make your relationship different? Was it easy to adapt to having another person in your personal space?

      Hi V! For me, I was only scared about paying for the flat, not so much about marriage. But the responsibilities that come with it. Yep, we have been cohabiting for almost 2 years now. I can’t say it made a lot of difference because we moved in together soon after I came back from the USA (we were away from each other for 2 months), at that point of time, we only just hit our 4th month. I know people must have thought I was crazy but yeah we stayed together from then till now. I think cohabitation made us even more prepared for marriage, like we have to see each other every single day. Of course there are times when I feel that Roy takes me for granted. He is a bit insensitive and oblivious about people’s feelings so when we quarrel, I just make him sleep outside or I’ll sleep in my parents’ room. But after 5 minutes, I’ll go out and drag him in and we will talk things out. We make it a point never to sleep angry. Initially, it was a bit weird because we were always together and I couldn’t have my personal time with myself, and my friends. If my bestfriends call and needed to talk to me, I would go to my parents’ room to talk. It really depends on which stage of life you are at. I was still a student, and had to go to school and come home to do my work. In that sense, I don’t recommend cohabiting when you are still a student especially when you have a heavy workload. Lucky for me, Roy is a crazy nerd, he forces me to do my work. I, on the other hand, am the biggest slacker ever and he can’t stand my laziness.

      My friends all call me housewife now because I was either in school or with Roy. I think it took a while for them to get used to my lifestyle but they are okay with that now. Staying together with Roy has also made me a naggy person because I can’t stand some of habits, and vice versa. (e.g. not turning on the switch after use, my entire family is super anal about this so yep.) Roy also can’t stand my messiness so we nag at each other every other day. Other than that, we don’t have much problems staying together. Roy didn’t have a hard time adapting to my family, and vice versa. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Getting a flat wasn’t like a number one thing on our priority list. It just came along and there was a good location so we just decided to try applying for it. Throughout the two years, we had the same goal, which was to grow old together. So both of us applied the flat together, happily and willingly. I wanted to apply last year and consulted some of my friends but NOBODY said yes. So I was a bit sad:( But this year I just went ahead with it. I am very stubborn, and I believe myself more than anybody else. I only told a few friends after I applied for a house, and only when I got a queue number did I tell the rest of my close friends that I got a house. That’s about it, hope this helps!:)

    Hey Keline! ๐Ÿ™‚ How did you tell your parents that Roy was gonna move in? I mean, as you said above, you were only together for 4 months then.

      Hey Andy! Hmmm I didn’t tell them explicitly, it just happened. First it was frequent sleepovers because we would go out till late at night and he would send me home. By then it was 4am and he couldn’t drive properly (falling asleep while driving) and I was very very worried. So I would always ask him to just sleep over. I think my parents slowly got used to it. Also, Roy has talks with my Dad every morning and my Dad likes him a lot. I guess they share the same values and see eye to eye with each other. My Mom liked Roy even before she met him HAHA ‘cos I did put in some good words for him and she saw him sending me home. Initially my Mom told me that my Dad didn’t like that Roy was staying at my place. I think he got used to it. ๐Ÿ™‚ Because my brother doesn’t stay with us (he’s married), so Roy is the only male in the house to have “men-talk” with my Dad. Now when I’m home alone, my Dad will always ask where Roy is, etc. Everything just fell into place nicely! Haha but I can’t stay over at Roy’s house!
