Happiness is when you score a pair of white sneakers for just 20 bux 😍😍😍
I like that it's the soft kind of leather which makes it reallyyyy comfy to wear.
Psyched @jongsy into getting the same pair so now we've matching sister sneakers hahahaha.
Mum's gonna frown but who cares 🌚
SO RAINY TODAY.
And the streets are so grimy and… Gross.
Can we have a little bit of sun please?
We bought this cookie puff with matcha filling because we were walking around the mall and the most delicious smell wafted over.
We followed the aroma (LOL LITERALLY) and found this small shop selling cream puffs.
Bought one and sank our teeth in eagerly but…… It doesn't taste or even smell anything like what led us to the store. But we 100% positive that the smell came from there leh!
Wai liddis 骗人的 😔😔😔
Brought in lots of chio rose gold accessories today and therefore this sticker is very apt.
And bonus points because we found a supplier which does them in stainless steel. Which is great because it won't tarnish and the rose gold won't fade to gold.
So mentally drained now after all that shopping for stocks. I'm just gonna sit on the cab and stone all the way to our dinner place. 😴
There's cheese tart craze here in China too.
Walked one round around the shopping mall's food hall and at least 4 different shops selling different styles of cheese tarts. Hahaha.
And they all look legit yums.
Finished this book on the flight called "Modern Romance" and I deem it a pretty decent read!
Many of the points brought up by the author were quite spot on. I found myself nodding along in unison. Especially this chapter about the paradox of choice.
Is it really a good thing that we now have so many dating choices at our literal fingertips? I also think this applies to other things in life. Sometimes having lesser choices ain't necessarily a bad thing yknow.
I like books which make me think.
"Marriage was an economic institution in which you were given a partnership for life in terms of children and social status and succession and companionship. But now we want our partner to still give us all these things, but in addition I want you to be my best friend and my trusted confidant and my passionate lover to boot, and we live twice as long. So we come to one person, and we basically are asking them to give us what once an entire village used to provide:
Give me belong, give me identity, give me continuity, but give me transcendence and mystery and awe all in one. Give me comfort, give me edge. Give me novelty, give me familiarity. Give me predictability, give me surprise. And we think that it's a given, and toys and lingerie are going to save us with that."
Another concept which the book touched on is that there are two kinds of love. Passionate love, companionate love, and the transition of passionate love into companionate love.
It also covers quite a bit of the rise and popularity of dating apps such as Tinder and OKC since it's about modern dating and all. They even created a subreddit as part of the research so that people can share their stories.
Interesting read I would say. Would recommend!
