I get tender loving care from mum in the form of brewed bird nest.

The upside of job hunting is…

I realise what wonderful friends I have when they started volunteering to forward my resumes to their contacts.

I get to wander around the house in my intimate wear. That is, until, my mum came back unexpectedly with an aunt and cousin in tow. OMG!

The upside of having friend who flies first class is…

getting free Godiva chocolates.

The upside of watching my friends gobbled up a tableful of local hawker fare while I obediently struck to my “Oh! super healthy” fish porridge is….

The upside of being sick is…

you are finally getting some decent sleep.

Ok, this is getting boring.  I am just in an awfully good mood today.
