Quick update

Blogging right now for a bit. Its coming to the end of my July month. Im suppose to be working only for this month but the in charge asked if i could extend & finish August too. So i was like "ok" but of course a lot of my plans have to change. For example, i wanted to have my tooth extraction start of Aug. Seems like i have to postpone it to start of Sept before school starts. Then, i also have to make plans for middle end Aug now with my mum. I could have accompany her the whole day while she is here in Sg but i can only acc her during the night time now. My tuition schedule is back to normal. I requested to end work at 4pm every Tuesday.

Yesterday, i tried baking cheesecake for the first time (another kind of cheesecake, not the fridge kind but the waterbath kind) and it was a success! Lol. I dont have the digital weighing machine so the portions were not accurate but it was seriously nice too! I also tried baking a cake & did flower frosting for the first time in my life lolol. Was a success too! Looks like im not eating my words this year : try new things to do. I can cancel off the "bake a cake this year" list now. Awesome! Now im only waiting to strike off the roller caster ride from my list. Of course there are other wishes but im not telling haha.

Alright, back to work. Ciao~

Update of my life

Been quite busy this month. I can't believe i'm working as a student care mentor for Nascans right now. haha. It is only a temporary one month job. Since I'm tutoring, done relief teaching before, there will be no trouble dealing with the kids and guiding them with their homework. After doing all these teaching stuff, i'm seriously considering if teaching should be included inside my career choices.

So yesterday, i went to look up for teaching career opportunities. Went to search for the qualifications, salary, how to apply etc. I'm really not sure what to do one year later! This nightmare is really hitting me hard. Ever since i started Uni, i've been constantly wondering & searching for suitable jobs for myself when i finish schooling. Honestly, i am more than willing to continue with a master but my mother say she will no longer sponsor my further studies. haha. She says its time i work.

My mother is coming to SG this end of month! I can't wait to see her! I'm always surrounded with super delicious food when i'm with her. I'm imagining her bringing me to Imperial Treasure for steamboat supper. Jumbo Seafood to meet her friend. Imperial Treasure for dim sum. Food Food Food. I LOVE FOOD.

I also start reading. Reading was never my interest since young. The only few books i read when i was little was Harry Potter and PS I love you. However, i'm on my 4th book this month. They are all borrowed from NLB at Orchard Central. I love the library there & was immediately captured by its calmness and environment. Currently, i'm reading 'The Last Empress'. Talking about cixi's life. It's a novel but some parts are facts. I love Chinese history. I hope i can find other similar books. Perhaps give me one on Wu ze tian. I read and searched all about the last emperor. I extended my searching to his wives : the empress and his concubine. I searched how they died and what happen to them after they were kicked out from the palace. Fact: Puyi's concubine was still a virgin when she divorced with him. Wang Rong, the empress, was said to have adultery with one of Puyi's soldiers. It was rumoured her baby was killed by Puyi and she went mad after that. She was heavily addicted to opium and cigarettes. Bring me back to the past! I want to witness all of these. I super love those characters from nothing to everything.

Soon, i will be removing all my wisdom teeth plus an ingrown tooth. I feel super sorry for myself. I lost 3 good teeth just because they weren't growing out. Then after a few weeks i will be receiving my results!!! Breathe. And now i only hope my grades are good. I look forward to school reopening and the day my braces is debond. Look forward to neat teeth!!! Finally!!!
