It was nice catching up, the last time we met was probably more than half a year ago. And No5 used to be our old haunt.
Took a sip of my lychee martini and.. they were too sweet! ARGH. What has LGG done to me?! All those bottles of wine that we have been drinking, have changed my tastebuds. Who would have thought the day would come where I'd have to dilute my lychee martinis with ice.
It could be a cancer survivor that makes you realise the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle. It could be a divorcee who has been through so much pain and struggle and come out of it an inspiration. It could be a mentor who motivates you to strive harder in the workplace.
I met someone like that last night who got me thinking about my career (or lack of one lol). There are no right or wrong answers about what you want in life, but that's exactly what made wonder: Just what do I want to do with my life (and career)?
I don't have a bad life, far from it. I have a job that I excel at and enjoy. I have a fantastic work-life balance that allows me to have a life outside the workplace. I travel quite extensively, for work and for leisure.
Sure, I'm not rolling in dough and raking in the big bucks, but I have enough. I'm quite content, but at the back of my mind, I've always known that I'm smart and I'm capable and that I can do more.
Can do and will do are two different things though.
And perhaps now is the time to do more, while I still can. While I have no commitments and can afford to take a risk. A small part of my brain feels like it woke up last night and is hungry for more. To be part of something greater, rather than just happily existing.
But I don't know what I want. And deciding what you want to do with your life isn't something that you think about overnight. So I guess I better start thinking now.

Or sing. Hahahaha. So tonight I think I'm going to attempt singing angsty love songs. Maybe Adele's Someone Like You.
Lol. Wish me luck.
I don't get why people do such things. What's the point and where is the thrill? Really got nothing to do issit.
Of course, the prank caller has no idea that he/she is prank calling the queen of bo liao, aka, me. You wanna ring in the middle of the night and keep quiet? Ok lor. I'll pick up the phone, and not say a thing, and let's see who lasts longer.
Tonight, I won. Prank caller decided to hang up after a couple of minutes of silence. Lol.

Yesterday, I had a double shot latte in the morning, and Vietnamese drip coffee after lunch. Half a bottle of wine at H's place and was out and sleeping like baby by 10.30pm.
Today, all I had was my morning cuppa with babycakes and I'm absolutely wide awake. Dafuq?
If it was Friday night, I wouldn't really care but it's not and I have to work tomorrow. Lol. Thankfully I'm not too swamped (yet). Can stone a little in the office heh.

Event is finally over and I can take a nice deep breath and collect myself. Massage yesterday did wonders for my aching back and legs, and I daresay I had a much better sleep because of it.
Finishing up the last of my meal before I head back home. Booya!
Amazing how exhausted I must have been that I fell asleep almost immediately after lying down, despite consuming FOUR coffees throughout the day! Heehee. Physically and metally tired.
I'm lying in bed, trying to muster up enough energy to roll out of bed and take a shower.
This project has been an interesting one, and once again I'm blessed by the love and support I get from my colleagues and friends. Wouldn't have been able to do this without them.
Ah well, time to start planning celebratory drinks. Yay!
