[Last two pictures taken from 2014]
Whenever I go back to Singapore, I would make it a point to meet up with as many of my closest girlfriends as possible. Since we only see each other yearly or sometimes even two years, it is always refreshing to sit down, have a good meal together and talk about everything and anything under the sun, and continue some more while shopping and grabbing some frozen yogurts for desserts, or even sit at Starbucks and continue to talk or possibly gossip for hours. That’s how we usually do it 🙂 I am so thankful and blessed to have such good friends, who are understanding, caring, and compassionate towards one another, and you are not afraid to be yourself while being around them. True friendship lasts forever. ❤
Eid-Al-Fitr Day 2
Eid-Al-Fitr Day 3
I am not sure if other Muslims in other countries do this, but in Singapore, we would go visiting, which is to go visit family members whom we do not see on the daily, like my Mom’s aunts or uncles, elderly relatives, distant cousins and so on. When I was a little kid, I would get really excited when we go visiting, that’s because we would get green packets (money envelope) with cash in it from the host, and/or if there are other guests at the same house, we would get more than one green packets from the people that’s visiting too. At the end of the day, it was always exciting to find out how much cash we accumulated from all the visiting. Oh memories…
Now that I’m older, I don’t have the same feeling as when I was little when my family and I would go visiting, because I don’t get anymore green packets. The tables have turned my friends. It’s my turn now to give green packets to small children. It’s a tradition or a cultural thing. So as soon as you reached adulthood, have a job and earn a decent pay, the green packets stopped coming, and your pocket gets thinner. Just kidding!
P.s Sorry for the grainy pictures. I am still learning how to edit my pictures and hopefully, I get the hang of it soon. 🙂
Celebrating Eid-Al-Fitr Day 1.

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I hope your weekend is going well so far. As you all know, I was away for over a week, because I was in Singapore to visit my family and also to celebrate Eid-Al-Fitr. It is a Muslim holiday, where every Muslim around the world celebrate this joyous occasion after completing the holy month of Ramadan. It was nice seeing my cousins, nieces and nephews whom I only get to see yearly. I managed to do some catching up with old friends too which is always fun. Now that I am back, I’m starting to miss my family a little and hopefully, it will be their turn to come and visit me here in the states. 🙂
So, this is only part 1 of my travel diary from my trip to Singapore. I am going to break them down into parts because I took a lot of pictures and wanted to share them with you on my blog. That way, you get to see what I did during my time there. Stay tune for parts 2 and 3 of my travel diary.
Thanks for reading!XOXO
Hey lovlies, I just got back from a much-needed week-long vacation to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. As many of you already know, I’m originally from Singapore and even lived in Guam for about a year or so. But, this is the first time, since moving to the East Coast U.S. that I’ve been to a tropical beach. And let me tell you, it was wonderful. I started off very fair (looking a bit yellow), but after just a couple days, I was 50 Shades of Morena darker (luckily for me, I bought the darker concealer before the trip).
