Miso Tired

Helllllooooo reindeers!!
I know I have been neglecting this space for quite abit now but as shown in my instagram, I've been really occupied with the renovation of the cafe and the whole works of it so please please please bear with me alittle longer and I promise with all my heart that my absence and frequencies used to blog over here will be worth the wait. Stay with me because YOU WILL WANT TO BE PART OF IT.

Anw, talking about being so occupied with the renovations and stuff, I only have 3 letters for myself. O.M.G. Why that??
Well... before I kickstarted this whole renovation works over at 15gran, I thought I hated tools. Carpentry tools to be exact. I'd always see Alex fix my cupboards and racks for me with so much enjoyment in it, I just couldn't understand why. Being in a place behind the live scene puts me in under an entirely different light that might have casted a rather foreboding and repulsive shadow towards the whole D.I.Y experience as compared to how I felt when put under the stage light during the past four days where I found a new comfort spot, (surprisingly).

I never thought I would crawl into a dog hole cabinet with loose screws and wires hung everywhere. I used to hate the thought of having any bit of shaven wood brushed against my skin. Worst still, I had phobias and terrorising movie scenes from the thrillers blockbusters that flashed on repeat. When I was a kid, I used to think the electronic screwdriver kit came in a set and I never thought I would carry the toolbox with such ease and convenience. Even my friends said they were pretty impressed with how quickly I could find the hidden treasured nails. There's nobody else in this world that I would rather thank for providing me with such exposure and extending my field of interest other than my carpenter or should I personal everything. Today, no, yesterday marks a year into our relationship and of cos......I am so glad to have him beside me all the time and ya-da ya-da ya-da (decided to spare you guys the first-time grammy awards winner speech)
and really abrupt but as I was typing appreciative I feel to have him and what not just 2 lines above, he decides to annoy me.........T H I S  B O Y . . . 

So back to the main topic as scripted as in the title box, I am SO SO SOOOOO flipping tired I can't even describe the urge and hunger to dive and submerge myself into the layers of comfort and warmth. My hands are dried and fried thanks to the consistent brawling and tugging between the screwdriver and my not-so-used-to-this epidermal layer. Buttttt all in all, I realised I actually really really like this jobscope!! Of cos, I can't do this professionally but at this pace I'm progressing in my own cafe, I'm totally happy with it!! Gotta thank my mother for bringing me up to be a tough girl HAHA. Anw..... just halt and wait for my next update cos I have a million websites for all of you to surf and cart out!! Sooooo in the meantime, you could go down to ikea, grab one of their racks or boxes and start fixing your own furnitures because trust me, YOU'LL NEED THEM QUITE BADLY once I put my ads up!! I already have four racks just solely for my shoes. TELL ME HOW?? WHAT MORE ALL YOU MAD SHOPAHOLICS?!

just reached the cafe because I dozed off halfway into this post while waiting for Alex to finish his work!! SOOOO PROUD OF HIM because he personally stitched and cut every piece of material involved and made something really damn awesome!! Not being bias because I would tell him if it's not nice but the item he made this time is YUMMEH....
He'll be at the Red Dot Design Museum at Tanjong Pagar in the evening to showcase and sell his work of artttttt. MASTERPIECES ok!! I tried helping him if you watched my instavideo but HAHA I'm so terrible at sewing plus I was living on an hour's sleep prior to that. Head down and show some support ok!! The best thing about this was that he took into consideration on how I am so actively and strongly against the use of animal skin and actually made the effort to hunt for alternatives. So proud of you molten lava caramal fudgeyness!! You go my boy!!

Counting the Miles

Truth is, it hurts.
It hurts so much I am avoiding the thought of it as much as I humanely could. I hate the thought of being so far from you. I hate every sound of it, every decibel that reminds me of the times you lift and slide open the padlock where the metal gates will clang. I hate the part where I hear tattoo and kimchi bark excitedly and the thought of you appearing at my gate like you used to all in hopes to surprise me would cloud up in my mind. If I said, I would not hold the little anticipating expectation and run down to see if you were there at all, I would be a fucking liar. With all bare honesty, I still do. Every single time. No matter how many times that same expectation failed on me the previous time, I would still hurry down just to make sure my hopes do not continue hanging in my head relentlessly. I hate the scenes that were once so familiar to me, with you in every frame. Now, the scenes they turned to only what my memories hold. We used to be together every day, if not almost everyday of the week. Not the whole day maybe, but a few hours everyday would be sufficient enough for us. That's what you said to me...
I told you that no, don't worry about it! it'll be fine because you staying 15mins away from me was a bonus. Truth is, I have been dreading the day you were scheduled to move out. I was supposed to be happy for you. I was supposed to be the happiest person for you. I am not. I am disappointed with myself as your partner for not being able to feel the happiness for you, I feel so stuck. I am happy for you like how I should be but at the same time, I really hate to see you go. Yes, physical distancing shouldn't be a problem if our relationship is strong enough to withhold all odds but the sudden need to re-adapt to you not being as close to me pains me to tears that even writing this now is torturous, so fucking torturous.

Yesterday, I lined up a day full of events so I would be so busy in my head thinking of stuff that your absence would not haunt me repeatedly. It  started in the morning when I overheard the electronic voice over in the train announced it was ang mo kio station. It hit me harder than I expected. Heck, I didn't expect myself to feel anything but what happened was a wave of sadness flooding over me and a tsunami of tears drowned my morning vision. I stood at my porch and watered the floor to wash fattyK's pee tray and sobbed uncontrollably. I realised then that I finally allowed the thoughts to run wild and free the way they should. It was relieving yet painful. It affected me in every way possible. You used to take my ootds but today, nobody did. When I asked you if you wanted to meet me at siglap, you said it would be too far for you. We used to meet right after our work/school time and there was never really a time we didn't not spend together. We could literally head back from anywhere together everytime. Then I went over to ikea to get stuff for the cafe alone today. It was a new experience because I have never stepped into ikea myself before. I struggled carrying two big bags by myself and I hate it. I hate the thought of you not being there with me when I needed you. I needed you so badly to help me with the stuff. I needed you to be there because you have always been someone I turn to ask for opinions for anything and everything. I needed you to push me again on the trolley like the first time you did. I just needed you to be beside me so badly but you weren't.

I miss the times we had. I hate the fucking distance between us now. What ever happened to the 15mins walk.

Anw, here's a throw back on one of the dates that we had where we went to far east.
had lunch at the basement level over Shin Tokyo where I posted a video on ig saying how I got the perfect solution for you girls for those who wanna get thin!! HAHA, such silly ideas I had those times!! If you missed the video, I said that whenever alex and I eat out, my side of the table would be clean and he's would be piled up with food food food and more food all because he took all my food!! but of cos, I was just kidding!! oh, how much I miss those times.

ordered the only meat-free main dish and it was "mixed mushroom ramen" that I couldn't finish so half the bowl went into Alex's stomach but of cos, he being a sweetheart I got to rob his chawamushi and the edamames and the seasonsed seaweed and the fruits and the sushi hehehe

Then we went over to Blogshopping and I got to do some retail therapy!!
They have expanded so so so so so soooo much and OH MAH GAWD the current space they are housed in is literally your one pit stop if you're intending to do some seriously good shopping!! They are so big now they have T W O entrances/exits!!!!!!!!

absolutely loving the top and this was the first piece I took the moment I passed by their rack!! Even Alex said it is nice. He hardly says anything crop is nice because he hates me showing my skin.

Wore it a number of times already because of how comfortable it hangs on my hips and I crazy love the whole rugged feel to it!!
