Us in 2013. Just three years ago*!! Wow, she has grown sooooo freaking much lol you'll see. Shit's crazy, fam.
*see this Dec '13 post for the food we ate at Crystal Jade on the day the above pic was taken. man, i've been blogging for a WHILE lol. makes for some damn good memories <3
Was trawling Tumblr for the lulz late one night and this "There's Always Time To Hug Your Lil Brother" gif came in like a wrecking ball and just hit me in the honey nut feelios™...
Despite what I consider to be a whopping age gap of 8 years, my little sister and I have been thick as thieves since the moment she was born. Mostly because I used to be such a moping loner of a child. As soon as I learned how to speak, I'd literally BEGGED my parents day in and day out for a companion who would have no choice but to have playtime with me lol
[I cannot, for the life of me, fathom what it must be like for the thousands of sibling pairs and groups out there in the world, who don't get along with their brother(s) and sister(s).
Make no mistake, I'm not saying that from a place of malicious judgement. If anything, I have a deep sense of sympathy for people whose familial ties just happen to twist this way. I know it may have stemmed from circumstances beyond their control, and I trust that effort was made to preserve kinship in the purest ways possible.
But I've heard horror stories from my friends where siblings don't give a single shit about the existence of one another. On the other end of the spectrum, there are also siblings who actively sabotage their very own brother/sister in whatever manner, big or small. I honestly can't decide which scenario is the ugliest and most straight-up painful.]
Ok. I went off on a huge fucking tangent there lol. Back on topic!! And the topic is: I LOVE MY SISTER TO BITS. teehee
I've been living apart from my parents and sister for a couple of years, so I only get to see them all once every week on Saturday's family night.
A few weeks ago, the parental units headed to Malaysia for a short getaway/honeymoon v2.0, so I had a whole FIVE days to spend wit ma sissssss <3
Here are some tidbits of our adventures hehehehe
Note: I never planned on writing this post until I chanced upon the emotional gif, so the pics are all pulled from my personal folder of shitty phone camera pics. They're super raw and straight from the heart ok!! So please pardon the quality :)
In conclusion, my sister is amazing and I am grateful as absolute FUCK to have her in my life.
A bond like this ain't something u can just take for granted, y'all ❤❤❤
love love love love love love love love
P.S - she's a giant nerd (#facts) and y'all can follow her on her nerd instagram @ImagineTaters if u wish to lolololol
Brought her to Brother Bird for some soft serve. It was my first time there! Been wanting to try their rice ball (?)/rice donuts since like, last year ffs.
Do try the cookie butter soft serve! VERY cookie butter-y, you can really taste the quality in it. Like they just straight up dumped jars upon jars of Lotus cookie butter into the churning machine to whip up such nice, smooth, creamy swirls of ice cream.
We later found this creepy ass goat mural whilst strolling through the Tiong Bahru neighbourhood. Well at least I think it's unsettling as hell (LOOK AT THE SIZE OF THAT THING)(and those EYES!!!!! oh my word. starin right into me sOUL) but obviously my sister a.k.a Animal Lover #1 (our dad is a vet)(for some reason i never got much of the nature lovin' genes lol i just love wildlife like, the average amount for any human) was thrilled to no end.
I believe she's gonna set this as her whatsapp profile pic.
Ok but forrealz how cute and FASHIONABLE is ma lil sis doeeee?????? *explosion of heart eye emojis*
Rockin' those ankle boots like DAMN...meanwhile i've been wearing the same pair of sequinned platform sandals literally since 2010?? Or, as Kim calls them, "prostitute slippers". ok :'))
Mild perturbation on her face as I dig the stupid goat's nose
We saw a giant peacock mural that was 2 storeys tall as well
Can u pls look at how ELATED she gets upon seeing animals, both real and fake???! LIKE..,? OK.
And this mini goat one! Yup, definitely less creepy than it's mammoth predecessor lol
So many damn murals in that area! Kinda sad that we took that Tiong Bahru tour just one day before my sis and I both caved in to the Pokemon Go hype. The neighbourhood is filled with Poke Stops, that ungodly GOAT FACE mural being one of them. I'm not even kidding omg
IT HAUNTS MY NIGHTMARES
WOULD U LOOK AT THIS SHIT lol (yes i returned recently to spin the Goatty McGoatface pokestop hehe
For all the hate it's been getting from a select group of naysayers, Pokemon Go is pretty dope. Downloaded that shit and became addicted within MINUTES. [sidenote: read the article i wrote about Pokemon Go game updates! if u wanna. :D]
Next day's order of business? Heading out to Bugis Mall for the sole purpose of catching some pokey manz huehuehue
Fuelling up!! Gotta love me some Astons' <3
Beef + carbs ON DECK.
My sis enjoyin her iced tea lol ISN'T SHE THE PRETTIEST!!!!!!!!!! Her smile lights up my whole world T^T (she's gonna read this and barf lol i just know it)
We went to a dog cafe after lunch at Aston's but there's a shit ton of pics involved in that activity so I'll leave it for a whole separate post in da future! Stay tuned :)
Headed to Jurong East the next day for Big Box's legendary salmon. I just wanna offer this PSA and warn all 3 of you out there reading this post that IT HAS GONE TO ABSOLUTE SHIT.
Look at this...
What. On earth.
Minuscule portion size. Pathetic piece of cheese slapped on top of salmon, not even melted. Was it even cooked through, tbh? It gave me an upset stomach for hourssss on end afterwards. Not worth it either, considering I was struggling to down each bite.
Fuck my life lol BRING BACK THE PAST BIG BOX SALMON!!!!!! That single meal was unforgettable, man. Been dreaming about it for MONTHS and now it's come to this?? Wow...
At least my sis is all smiles <3
Plus, we got a nice window seat by the afternoon sun so that was lovely!
Note: the pasta she's seen eating was atrociously oversalted too. but she still finished it like a champ coz our momma ain't raised us to waste food!!
Fucking get your act together, Big Box. Jesus.
Random interjection to bring this post back to lighthearted fun: We went to a park during the evening and saw this FATASS of a cat!! I kept telling my sis "if it scratch/bite u then idk hor" coz cats are legit BITCHES. Especially these stray mofos like...you dont know 'em. You dk their story!! But my sis managed to get a few pats in before the fatty calmly strutted away so yeah. it's all good (Y)
Double decker bus fun timezz!!!!!! It's like a budget amusement park ride lol. Especially if u get to sit right at the front :'))
Ok last event before the parental units returned to SG and scooped my lil sis back to their abode lol
Took her to Great World City, one of my favourite places ever. And had brunch at Cedele! One of me fave cafes huehuehuehuehue (when i can afford it)
She reeeally liked the bacon mushroom pasta, and rightly so coz that shit tastes SPECTACULAR.
She slurped the whole plate up and I only got to nick a small forkful's worth so...I had to starve :')
Ain't nobody got the funds to order ANOTHER $20 plate of pasta lmao
Went and bought a corn dog at da supermarket to keep the hunger pangs at bay temporarily, but we wound up splitting it 50/50 as well (the food.....not the cost)(tragically)(LOL jks i was raised on free food from my cousin so now i gotta return da favour for ma sis~~~)
First time trying a corn dog for both my sis and I! Would've loved some condiments on it. Are corn dogs typically enjoyed with ketchup/mustard? Damn, I love the idea of carnivals and stuff. O wait I'm mainly thinking bout all dem food stands lolz
Took a free shuttle bus to Orchard! Yes, for pokemon hunting purposes HAHA
Hooray for saving that couple of bucks on your ez-link :')))
Finna end this post off with a sister selfie that's touristy af
(i look like i just ate 9 different drugs so PLS pardon my face lol)
Look, ma! We at da world famous ION!!!! :D :D
With luxury boutique stores that my pauper ass can't even afford to set foot in lmao
