Little Things That Make a Big Difference

1 May 2014, Labour Day 

I have been very busy with so many things everyday and constantly sleeping late almost everyday because of school work and personal matters. But you know what, nothing is easy, it's either you go the long way or it's the end of your route. At the beginning of the year, I told myself that I need to get involve with more societal work such as volunteering for charity events or meaningful activities. I was informed that there was going to be an activity at the hospital on Labour Day to thank all the nurses, doctors, and cleaners whom were working on a public holiday. Labour Day is meant to appreciate those that have been working really hard and to also celebrate their achievements. I'm really thankful that there are people who are willing to work on a public holiday despite being Labour Day. But you know what? The hospital has to operate for 24/7 and there needs to be enough manpower and staff to take care of the patients.

I eventually agreed to help out with a group of friends to distribute cards to the people working at the hospital to appreciate their kindnesss. I actually had an event the night before can came home really late, but instead of sleeping till the afternoon on a holiday. I decided and told myself to get up and do something good! I have no idea what initiated me to do it, but I guess it's my own personal desire to do it. I feel good after doing a good deed and it's a good head start for me too!

The nurses seemed to be overwhelmed when they see us giving out the handwritten cards to them! The "omg, thank you so much" never fails to make me happy and also melts my hear! Hope to do more CIP work in the future!!!! I don't mind actually, because helping makes you feel good all the time!

When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.

Like they always say...
"Enjoy the little things, for one day you make look back and realize they were the big things."

My experience at Kim's Family Food (Korean Food)

I was recommended by my friend Qin Pin to try out this Korean Restaurant that she had been telling about for ages that I really must come and try! She told me that there are more than 10 side dishes they offer and guess what? They are all FREE and refillable. Well to me, I not into Korean cuisine, but I decided to give it a try and experience the authentic food and ambience over at Kim's Family Food! There are 3 outlets in Singapore and we visited the one at 17 Lorong Kilat (near to Nooks DIY Pancakes).

My experience at KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar (Bukit Timah)

A cozy cafe located along the streets of Bukit Timah, a walkable distance from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station. KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar is no stranger in the neighbourhood as they have been around quite some time. The cafe primary focuses on serving  Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” food and healthy eats such as yogurt.  You may wish to know that the cafe is under the popular yogurt chain, Sogurt. Recently, I was invited by the cafe to try out their newly introduced items on the menu which is inspired by a Cali-Asian theme.  Ambience: 7.5/10  Cozy environment to relax and chill with your friends after school. The fixtures are decorated with a nature-inspired theme.  Tropical Smoothies  (Left, Tropical Peach Mango; Right, Chai Avocado Shake), SGD$8.20  I wanted to go for the standard coffee/tea, however decided to go with a smoothie instead. To my surprise, it was refreshing and yummy. I really enjoyed my tropical peach mango smoothie as the drink was well-ba

Top 10 Cheap and Affordable Places for Students to eat in Singapore

Most of the time during lecture, my friends and I would be in class whatsapping each other in our own personal group chat discussing about what should we eat after school. (Don't bluff, I bet you done it before too). Usually, we will not be able to think of a location to settle down hence we will end up searching online. Over the entire year, my clique and I have been hopping around places to find the best spot to eat and I have successfully list up some of my top places that we usually will hang out after school. Of course, being students (if you work or not work part-time), we will always be on budget constraint and do not want to spend a lot in a meal. After months of exploration, I would like to recommend some places (you might have been too or might not) that you will probably want to visit with your friends one day! What we usually look out for: 1. Places you can sit and chit-chat for more than 1 hour 2. Pocket-friendly prices (preferably below $25, ranging from $5.50 -
