Last night, while watching Iron Chef (Husband Ng and my favourite show) on TV last night, I was reminded of the various roles I aspired to be while I was young.
I wanted to be so many things!
But since we were talking about Iron Chef, let's start with a related one.
I wanted to be a world renowned food critique, so famous that they would invite me to these Iron Chef battles.
Every time I watch them in kitchen stadium, all I really want to do is taste the food.
I guess I did embark of this ambition of mine.
Especially since I was an amateur food writer for awhile during my Uni days.
That was a good time.
Eating and getting the tear apart all the individual ingredients and tastes.
That was a good time.
I WANTED TO BE A GYNAE
I've always had an immense fascination for the entire pregnancy process and I found that it piqued my curiosity.
EVERYTIME I played Barbie with my cousins (back when I was 4) I insisted on either
a) being pregnant and hiding balled up clothes under Barbie's tummy to show "the bump"
b) being a gynae
I am hilarious
But I guess as we get older, we suddenly go from wanting to be a certain someone.
To actually wanting to become the idea of something.
For example, for a huge part of my life, I wanted to be
CAPABLE AND COOL
Uh not sure why, but whenever I envision myself achieving this, I picture myself in a pantsuit, sunglasses and a super slicked back ponytail.
Not sure how or when, but my ambitions moved away from occupations and towards something else.
Either way, I think that was one of the motivations I had to jump into law school.
And then once in there, I realised there are so many sacrifices you have to make to look capable and cool.
So I jumped out of that aspiration and decided that I want to be doing
WHATEVER THE HECK I WANT
And I think I'm stuck in this phase right now and it's a pretty nice place to be.
Doing whatever I want. And being whoever I want to be.
Studying Comms then not using much of the skills.
Looking for dream jobs and leaving them.
Totally not giving a shit about family drama (and often fuelling the fire)
Graduating but skipping graduation
Not knowing where life is going to take me
But it feels ok, so I'm staying here for awhile.
Ok end of #thoughtfultuesday 😅
The family went for a 1 night chalet stay (courtesy of mum's civil service membership) and we went to swim!
For about 2 minutes cos the water was too cold and we had a cold baby with us 😅😅
I must say, the standard of chalets are super high nowadays? Feels like a resort man.
I still remember the days where chalets were dirty, small and for school children to hang out in.
Oh btw, we're having a swimsuit launch in the next 2 weeks and the Scalloped Bow will be available in Nude Pink 😍😍
Can't wait to share pics.
Also been scanning through so many different colours and materials I feel like my eyes are going cray.
We're going to BKK this weekend so that's one thing to look forward to 🙈 Hehe the main goal is to head over to the temple for prayers but I'm going to get my Thai food fix for sure!
Does anyone know where the rows of stalls selling salt baked fish and zichar outside isetan have moved to?
It's the only thing Husband Ng really wants to eat and I have no clue where they have gone 😂😂
I'm looking forward to rummaging through the vintage sections in JJ!
Hehe Chatuchak is one of my fav markets of all time. I'm hoping I can document it properly this time round!
We had a printer mishap in the office today and now I have free watercolour tattoo 😂
Reminiscing my salt baked fish.
Thank you for all the comments!!! Hehe.
I think what Husband Ng wants to experience will never happen again.
Cos the old row of stalls used to be by the road side and was so squeezey and wet and noisy and dirty 😂
Humans are such funny beings.
When we have it, we're like…I wish it were cleaner.
And now that it's moved on, we're like…
I miss it 🙄🙄
Wearing this top today and realised I forgot to share the link the last time.
I used to purchase from this shop alot, it's plus sized and goes up to like 4-6XL sizes.
And the material and designs are quite nice also 😉 💯 would recommend.
Sharing the link has triggered my Taobao tendencies 😂
I've been having a lot of pimples lately. So has Husband Ng.
Is it….our office very dirty? 😂😂😂
