LIFE

While August was a really busy month at work, I spent the first half of the month spending as much quality time as I could with Yibo, including late night strolls at the park to McDonalds, or him coming over for dinner for just a few hours. No one’s ever too busy for a meet-up.

He flew off just two weeks back. Omg it pains me to think that it has only been 2 weeks -_- He’s gone for the rest of the year. Jeez. Happy that he’s been adjusting well so far though, leaves no worries behind.

We also moved offices! Finally made the big move from the really secluded Raeburn Park to the thriving CBD at Guoco Tower. The office looks amazing, quite sure you’ll be seeing a lot more of it on our insta-stories!

And literally right after Yibo flew off, as if he has perfect timing, things got pretty crazy at work because the SEA Games started. 29th SEA Games, significant as Singapore’s best away games ever, as well as the first time we’re working for the Team Singapore Facebook page while a major games is happening. Things were really intense. While things were really stressful and fast-paced, we did have a lot of fun working together, despite the late nights (up to midnight in the office, every day). Couldn’t have wished for a better team to work with! #OneTeamSG

(I’m working on a video because I filmed the entire SEA Games period in the office. Wait to see the madness that is Nicolette. And the rest of us, of course.)

BLOG

Considering what a busy month I’ve had, I’m glad I found some pockets of time at the start of August to put together some blog posts and even posted two videos! I must be on a roll.

Cosy dinner party for Team Sports

The last dinner party at KJ’s house was such a roaring success that we HAD to organise another one ahead of the looming games period, where we would be knee-deep into all the social media updates for the Team Singapore page.

(Yes we help to manage the Team Singapore page – I do community management on there.)

So since SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games season were looming ahead of us (which has already begun as you’re reading this post), we decided to have another gathering to get everyone in high spirits before we get buried in work.

A safari in Denmark: Knuthenborg Safaripark

When you think safari, Denmark certainly isn’t the first place that comes to mind. Little did I know, the Knuthenborg Safaripark is just a 1.5 hour drive away from Copenhagen – where we could get up-close with animals like zebras, donkeys, even camels (protected by our car windows of course hahaha).
