Story of a sinseh

I decided to write this entry about a sinseh I know because I think it’s something important for us to think about life and change.

后港补选2012 · Hougang By Election 2012

A rare insight.

Nomination Day for Hougang By Election was held at Serangoon JC, and many people arrived early as a form of support for the candidates.

Another First

It's my last day at work, and I wanted to make something for my colleagues to thank them for being such an awesome bunch all these while.

Somehow I've been thinking of something along the line of chocolates. I wanted to buy each of them customized gifts, but I thought, what would they do with it, if they didn't like it?

So I decided to mould some chocolates, so as to leave them some sweet memories. (:

Fun Fact #1:
I didn't create the chocolate mixture from the start

I merely MOULD them using the star-shape mould. It's funny because I wanted it to stand for Munkysuperstar, and I bought the orange one, not realising that that doesn't matter because the chcolate wouldn't turn orange.

Fun Fact #2:
I'm really bad with estimation...

...so I didn't buy enough chocolate! I thought one bar of Van Houten would be enough, but apparently not. I freaked out when I realised that I've only got enough to make 8 chocolates. So at 11pm, I went to get another 4 bars.

That makes three flavors of chocolates - semi-sweet dark chcolate (Steph doesn't like sweet stuff), dark chocolate with mashmellows & white chocolate.

This is my first attempt at creating food gifts and I'm glad no one died from eating them! (: Because I'm usually very paranoid about hygiene and would wash my hands after every step just to make sure that it's clean. Aka very tedious! So.. I doubt I'd be making food anytime soon. For others, at least. I don't mind detox personally.

代沟 · Generation Gap

By the time I write this entry, I would have left my "current" workplace. While I love the work environment, it was time for a new chapter of my life. More about that in another entry.
During this parasite period where I have no job, I've been taking the time to explore Singapore, tidy my room and reformat my life. It's like a fresh breakup, where I shouldn't be in a hurry to jump into a new relationship. Instead, take the time to reflect, live life, before deciding on the next step.

That being said, I found this picture that I wanted to blog ago.

I was on my way to work when I found the candy on the left. It's somewhat my childhood candy, and it brought back a lot of memories. I was so happy that I shared it with my colleague at work.

Her reaction? (The following is just a rough summary)

That's your childhood candy?
Mine is like... *looks at the pantry*


And she showed me the sour plum candy on the right.

I mean... Yeah... I have seen the sour plum candy too, but it was no longer the IN thing during my childhood...? #justsaying

And my colleague went on to comment on how hers was just wrapped with gold paper, while mine even came with a plastic casing.

Talk about generation gap...
