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 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

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-balance and not too sweet.

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below:''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…
