At a glance, April seemed like a pretty eventful month. We celebrated Tung’s birthday, had a nice dinner with the gyro fam, sports team dinner at KJ’s house, and took a quick trip to Bangkok with my mum! It also looks like I ate plenty of sinful food, and my salad frequency has sure dropped hahaha (partly because I realised how expensive it costs sigh).

ON THE BLOG
Been in quite a lethargic mood with the travel posts lately, though I know I’m way overdue on lots of content (my Scandinavia, Malacca, and Hong Kong trips). I started looking at all the possible content I had to put out, and somehow I started missing how my blog used to be in my secondary school days. I published a post every. single. day. Nothing special, just documenting my day, and my thoughts. Whenever I went out with my friends, and whenever I did anything fun, I would blog about it.
That’s exactly what I did. And things felt right again. I didn’t restrict myself to just travel content, and it was great. I did also power through two straight days and completed my Hong Kong travel diary from last year. It felt really satisfying. Catch up on it if you haven’t!

Thoughts of a homebody
I guess I’ve been really enjoying life and feeling thankful this month. Sounds annoying and preachy as hell. I APOLOGISE. I suppose it’s because I’ve been focusing more on my social life, and sharing more of these on the blog, so I get more time to reflect on these people/events.
Also caught two movies this month! Finding way more time for movies now that I’m not studying. Since I have free time every weekend woohoo. Beauty & the Beast and Fast 8 were great for the big screen. Disney classics are the best, and the aesthetic was so beautiful to watch.
April would also have been Ervin’s birthday month. We weren’t the closest of friends, but he was one of my juniors who really left an impact on me. Such a bright and bubbly dude, always looking on the positives. He did remind us to be thankful for the life we are able to have, and for the things we are able to do. (“Age is a privilege that some never get.”)
We now welcome May, when I’ll turn 23. God just writing that number feels surreal to me. Birthdays are great, except when it comes to mind. It’s weird.
I’m just looking forward to another short getaway with Yibo. Thankful to be going on a simple trip with him, just the two of us. (Just a normal couple…going for a normal vacation…like normal people do…)
