Sunday Family Dating


Hello hello!! I am back with another blog post, this time round the topic will be about my family dating yesterday!! 🙂

It has been some time since the five of us gathered together to have a meal and exchange information on our current life happenings!! 😉

Since my sister was yearning for some steamboat, we decided to satisfy her cravings. We went to have Beauty Pot at town area. Spent a good few hours stuffing all our tummies full to the max with all food in above college!! 😛

Miko was excited for the sour plum ice blend per college (it was the picture with those cups that look like shot)!! My niece even pretended to drink the dessert like shots in a club, which makes all of the adults laughed out loud uncontrollably!! 😉

Upon finishing all the food and the desserts, we decided to move on to window shopping. After around an hour of walking around aimlessly, we decided to find a cafe to enjoy the fragrance of coffee and most importantly to rest our tired legs!! 😉

We chance upon a relatively new cafe (at least it was a first try for all of us) named CoffeeSmith. My sister and I decided to try their frappe iced chocolate, mom decided to have their hot caramel cappuccino while my brother in law tried out their iced vanilla coffee. 😛

Verdict was excellent. Take note that  their drinks was on the pricey side of the scale, as their cold drinks were priced $8 sgd each while the hot drinks were priced $7 sgd (accordingly to what we drank yesterday)!! But it was totally worthy of the high price, the drinks was totally delicious and mouth-watering!!! 😛

The iced chocolate frappe was thick and creamy with a rich chocolate fragrance. Mom commented that her hot caramel cappuccino was yummy with a hint of sweet caramel partnering with her favorite coffee beans!! Although my brother in law was kind of upset with his iced vanilla coffee was not quite up to his standards. He personally felt that it tasted kind of bitter and lack of the vanilla fragrance!! 😉

After the coffee break, we decided to head home separately as it was getting late. I totally enjoyed spending my sunday with all those that I love!! Had a wonderful time with my family, gossipping and laughing at each other!! 😉

Hope everyone had a great day ahead!! Beat those Monday Blues to bit and pieces!! 😀

XoXo

BookwormMindy’s Sunday


Hello everyone! It is a Monday again!! Let me help you cuties fight off the famous monday blue with my happiness and positivity vibes!! 😀

Today blog post I will share more with you all how I typically spend my Sunday!! Let’s take an example from yesterday, I enjoyed taking the local bus services to our destinations with my mummy!! 🙂

I love to take photos of Mother Nature’s handiwork whenever it suits my hyper mood. Yesterday’s cloud was totally amazing, pretty and captivating for an individual’s attention!! You can see for yourself on the college above!! 😉

Upon reaching our destinations, we would normally went in search for food stalls and enjoyed our desired meal. Menu for yesterday was vegetarian food!! Yummy and mouth watering was the only words I can think up for the food we ate yesterday!! 😛

After satisfying our meal, we would go shopping around the place. I would say yesterday was a great day for us. We bought tons of things, including what I always wanted; a good material travel bag!! 😉

After shopping for a good few hours, we decided to hop into the public library nearby to fight off those heat waves!! My mummy managed to read a few copies of newspaper and magazines, while I enjoyed reading a few good chapters from both my Chinese and English novels!! 😉

Next on the schedule would be to head over to the store nearby to purchased whatever necessaties we came to buy!! Upon finishing all our mission, it was time to head home!! Psst, did I mentioned that the dinner for last night was totally finger licking good??? Gotten the hint??!! 😛

Yup, dinner for the night was KFC’s Zinger Double Down meal!! Love the spicy chicken, with cheese and bacon strips!! Not to mention those potatoe bites that came along the meal, totally delicious and satisfying for my tummy, can’t say the same for yours until you tried it out for yourself!! Wink wink!! 😉

Alright, that would be normally how I spend my weekend especially Sunday!! I love spending it with my family, I totally encouraged you all to squeeze more time out to accompany your family. The time spend together with family is totally worthy over all other things!! 😉

Since now is still early, enjoy my selfie and my wefie with my mummy in the college above!! Stay happy and always smile upon all obstacles being thrown in your way!! There isn’t anything on Earth that cannot be solved, it is just a matter of your decision and determination to solve it or not!! Smile and brace through the storm if you have one, otherwise just smile and be a pretty lady or handsome gentleman!! 🙂

Hope you people have a great Monday out there, wherever you may be on the globe!! 😉

Byes,

Happy Birthday BookwormMindy! (FY2017)


Hello everyone!! Today’s blog post will be my birthday post!! Just a normal ordinary day like any other day on my birthday!! 🙂

Nothing really special happened, just that my sister cooked me a fabulous meal filled full to the brim with her love towards me!! Thankful for all the love she ever shower upon me since I was young like a baby!! 🙂

Always felt thankful for the love my family gave me since young. Although they can be kind of control freak at times, I understand that they are coming from the perspective of trying to protect me from harm’s way, as much as they can. I thanked them that they gave me as much freedom as I could possibly get, their trust in me and for always having patience and understanding in me. 😀

They are my strongest support in this world, they are my everything! Just wanted to shout out to them that I love them with all my heart and thankful for their love towards me and always believeing in me!! 😀

The actual day of my birthday, we spent the day lazing around in my sister’s lovely home. We catch up on as much episodes of Taiwan idol drama as we can, gossip about the actors and had a heart to heart talk among ourselves!! It was an ordinary day filled with comfortable moments and lovely atmosphere!! 😀

Yesterday (Friday, 4 August) my colleagues celebrated my birthday for me at my workplace!! Just a tiny adorable panda cake for me, with a present wrapped in self designed tweety bird wrapper and not to forget a tweety bird birthday card all designed by them!! 😀

I playfully asked my colleague why get me a panda cake instead of a tweety cake? Her response was because she couldn’t find a adorable tweety cake plus she knew that one of my hobby is sleeping (I love to sleep early)! 😛

In the end they got me a a tweety bird t-shirt and a woodstock t-shirt!! Thankful for all their effort in creating the tweety bird card and writing their best wishes for me! We had a busy week at work, I knew that they created this world surprise for me within a short span of two hours, as we were so filled to the brim with our work!! Still thankful for all their effort and time, no matter how little it was being put into this little surprise!! 😀

After work, I met up with my childhood friend! We went for dinner and she passed me my present with a carefully handwritten birthday card! Thankful for the well written card with all her best wishes to me! 🙂

She even insisted to treat me to dinner, therefore I return the favor my treating her to our favorite dessert: ice cream!! We spent a good part of the short amount of time we got together to exchange our current situations with each other!! I gave her whatever advice which I deem useful and hope it helps her to make a decision which is suitable to her!  😛 
Last but not least, happy belated birthday to bookwormmindy! For year 2017, hope it continues to treat me even better than it is already treating me! Hope everything will go on even smoother, hoping that I will continue to be more bless and blissful each and every day!! 😀

To many more years to come in the near future!! 😛

Cheers,

Made Up My Mind


Hi people!! I am back for another update before this week comes to an end. Let me share with you people a news on my current life happenings.  🙂

Since my post on my working life a few weeks ago, I have already made up my mind that I will be resigning from my post in this company. Just that this news will not be spread to my fellow colleagues and manager too soon. I will give it another week or two before I will pass the message and notify them of my decision. 🙂

I just received a text message from one of my fellow colleague sharing the news that he will be leaving his post by the end of this month in our team group chat on whatsapp. It then prompted me to share the news here with you people in advance, even before I share this piece of news with my colleagues at work. 🙂

I did share my decision with my family, they expressed their support towards my decision made!! After knowing the main reasons for my departure in this company, they encouraged me to present them my resignation letter as soon as possible. 😛 

I guess it will be time to start up a new adventure soon!! I am looking forward to it with all my heart!! Fighting Mindy!! 😀

Meanwhile I just applied for my annual leaves from this coming Monday all the way to Wednesday. I will use this short period of time to rest well and get myself ready for the battle I will need to fight after I get back to work on coming Thursday!! 🙂

I am planning to use this period of time to catch up on as many chapters of novels, episodes of variety shows and dramas, spend as much time as possible with my family. I will also be meeting up with my dearest sister on Tuesday, simply for sisterly bonding and lunch gossips session!! I totally can’t wait to do all the above!! Just the mention of those above got me all excited and hyper active!! 😉

Hope you people will wish me all the best in my life and give me all the encouragement in the world!! 😉

Have a lovely weekend!!

Byes,

Happy Mother’s Day 2017!!!


Hello everybody!! Happy Sunday to all of you out there!! Today is mother’s day, so I will be sharing with you people how we celebrated this special occasion in our family!! 😀

This year we celebrated mother’s day on a public holiday, which was Wednesday the 10 of May! Since we wanted to rest at home on the actual day being a Sunday!! I am sure that all restaurants and public places will sure be filled full with crowds of people everywhere!! Therefore I think our decision of celebrating mother’s day in advance is such an awesome idea!! 😛

Anyway let me get to the point for this post, this year there wasnt any real surprises for our mommy. Just a simple get together for a delicious meal and some time to really sit down and have a heart to heart chat with coffee by our sides!! 😉

The meal was a mother’s day set meal which includes the following of Roasted Duck with Herbal Soup based of Pao Sheng, Hong Kong Style Fish, Broccoli with Tou Fu, Shark Fin Soup, Spicy Scallops with Veggies and last but not the least is Sweet Sauce Fried Chicken!! Our drinks for that meal was Luo Han Guo!! The meal was super satisfying for my tummy. I guess we all kind of burped non stop after that really mouth watering meal!! 😀

After finishing our wonderful lunch, we proceeded to Starbucks for our coffee break!! Spend a few good hours there gossipping about all our recent happenings in life and our thoughts and dreams for the future!! It has being such a long time since the two sisters get to talk to our heart’s content. Feeling thankful I have such a great family!! 😀

For this year, that was basically how we celebrated mother’s day for our mommy. She was easily contented and didnt stop smiling until we reach home and rest for the day. 😛


Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there whom is currently reading this post!! Hope you all have an awesome day ahead!! Cheers!! 😀

Love,

Goodbye 2016, Welcome 2017!!!

Hi people!! Two blog post in a day!! 😛

This blog post is mainly to thank everyone whom have read my blog for the past years and continue to come back to read more about my humble daily affairs!! 🙂

Thank you everyone!! Just feeling thankful for all that had ever happened in 2016 which turn me into a better person and made me who I am today!! 🙂


I welcome 2017 with open hands and hope that 2017 will be an even better year ahead!! 2017 please continue to treat me well and if can, treat me even better than 2016 did!! 😉

In 2016 I continue to brace myself for all the obstacles being thrown my way at my workplace!! I guess I did a good job overcoming them, gave myself a good pat on the shoulder (can’t reach my back, normally people will give themselves a pat on the back :P) after each day at work!! 🙂

Although I always felt super tired after each day at work, but with the happy faces of my colleagues (my sales team colleagues only) I always have a way to cheer myself up and drag my tired soul and body to work day after each day!! Continue to “fight” the other departments and customers with them by my side!! Together the sales department is invincible!! 😀

2016 in short have treat me well. In 2016, I had a healthy lifestyle of exercising more freqently (like 6 days per week, not inclusive of my usual walking of 10,000 steps per day routine)!! I enjoyed my reading hobby, managed to achieve a record of at least one to two books per month (those with at least a few hundreds of chapters)!! 😛

Spent lots of time with my family and bonding with my favorite sisters. Chatting on the phone with her was always such a happy affair that either of us wanted the phone call to end even though it was late into the night! 😛

Although all that was stated above was such simple tasks or ordinary happenings… yet I appreaciate all that has ever happened!! 🙂

Will continue to strive on to be a better person in 2017!! Together let’s all fight for a better tomorrow… Last but not least, thank you all of you whom have stand by my side, regardless of how little or much you did to help me (reading my blog post and giving me likes help too). You gave me the much needed strength to continue to write (or type) out my feelings and thoughts in this little space!! 🙂

Happy New Year 2017 to all of you out there!! 😉

Love,

BookwormMindy 😉

Signage: Bad Mood, Come Again Another Day :X

Hi people!! Today morning I was still in a hyper mood. Simply because today is a Wednesday and it’s mid week!! Woohoo!! 😉

But around mid afternoon, whoosh, there goes my good mood… The day went horribly wrong for the rest of the day!! 😦

The reason is as simple as because a manager from another department sending a mass email saying I did not do my job properly. *annoyed face*

When in fact I did my job perfectly well and already to the best of my capability!! Luckily my manager knew me well enough to have enough trust in me and know that I always give my best in whatever I do!! 🙂

Thank God I have a good team of colleagues and boss!! 🙂 My colleagues come to me to know more in detail of the story of the untrue / misunderstanding of the email. They came to a conclusion of the system having a bug or error. :/

My manager even sent me an email and console me by giving me some words of encouragement. It was along the lines of “Dont worry, you did well all along, do not think that you are in trouble. :)”!! He seriously gave me a smiley face!! 🙂

That literally let me breathe out a sigh of relieve!! Thank God he believed in my work ethnic!! Being kind enough to offer words of encouragement and trust in me!! That being said is enough for me to face the bad guy (after some thought maybe it is just the way he phrase his email that makes it look like he meant harm to my position in the company) with confidence!! 🙂

I silently sent all my colleagues a telephanty thank you plus a big bear hug after seeing all their trust shining in their eyes when they look at me!! 🙂

Just a few minutes ago, I received a phone call from my sister informing me that one of my close relative passed away today. 😦

I hope my favorite aunt will be able to enjoy herself at the other side of the world!! Hope she do not think too much about her life here on Earth anymore!! She will forever live in my heart!! I love her as much as my family. 🙂

My dearest E Po (how I normally address her) hope you have a bless life now. Do not have any regrets. Your children and grandchildren and all other people that you care about will continue to live strong and healthy. 🙂

We will never forget your cheekiness and the loud laughter that erupt from your throat (it sounded more like erupting from the pit of your stomach)!! 😛

May you rest in peace!! Love you deeply!! 🙂

Now, to the title of today’s post!! Can I have a signage that reads Bad Mood, Come Again Another Day!! :X

I think my day qualify for applying for such an upset banner slash signage!! 😦

Hope the rest of you have a better day than I had!! I just want my day to end quickly, I welcome Thursday slash tomorrow with open arms!! 🙂

Byes,

BookwormMindy :/
