A week full of spontaneous decisions.
First Spontaneous Decision: Shopping with someone
I was chilling on my bed when I received a text from the person I love. And the next thing I knew, we were walking around in Jem.
If I’m going to be completely honest, I have never shopped with someone for someone before.
Usually, it’s just window shopping. But this time, we were on a mission to get a polo tee. And we really went to great lengths to get one.
First stop of the day was G2000. He found a polo tee that was suitable but wasn’t sure about it. The thing is, we both imagined him to be in a dark blue polo tee. But we only had the option of white or red.
Thus we went elsewhere, but we didn’t really know where to go. We went to Robinsons and there was a nice dark blue polo tee but they didn’t have his size. After failing to find one at Marks & Spencers as well, I suggested going over to Westgate instead. We visited Isetan and Armani Exchange but to no avail.
So we decided to head over to IMM instead to look for Ralph Lauren. But to our surprise, there wasn’t Ralph Lauren. However, there was Lacoste. And we found a dark blue polo tee that looked and felt amazing. But the price was also really amazing ($89 after discount).
Not 100% willing to spend the money (still quite willing), he decided to ask his parents for an opinion and eventually, he settled for the white polo from G2000 after all.
Though tired, my heart was full seeing him try on so many shirts and just walking around with him HAHAHA. (I’m so cheesy. I’m sorry.)
Second Spontaneous Decision: Murder on the Orient Express
That evening, the person I love randomly asked me whether I wanted to watch “Murder on the Orient Express” and of course, I said yes!
I’ve been seeing the posters around a lot and I love myself a mystery, crime, thriller movie.
To be honest, the ending was quite expected. But for the sake of those who haven’t watched it yet, I shall not divulge information about it HAHAHA.
Definitely enjoyed watching a movie.
Fun fact, before I found the person I love, I watched movies alone most of the time in the past two years of my life.
Third Spontaneous Decision: Christmas Wonderland
Okay, maybe this wasn’t very spontaneous. We wanted to go there on 2nd December, but the tickets sold out way too fast.
But still, it was a great experience.
I have been to Christmas Wonderland last year, but I did not stay for very long. Or rather, I should say that I didn’t stay over 10 minutes (not even until it was dark). Not because it wasn’t good (in fact I think last year may have been better), but because I was quite tired after my shift and because I was alone anyway.
But this year was slightly different.
Though the colour of the lights wasn’t my favourite, and not many shops interested me (except this shop that sold cute toys made of socks), I had the best company. And that made everything better.
I guess it’s true when they say that happiness is double when shared! :’)
For my friends who have yet to go there yet, it is time to get your tickets before it’s too late! Do get the bundle and visit the Flower Dome as well, for Poinsettia Wishes. Hope you have a merry time there too! ❤
Fourth Spontaneous Decision: Dinner at Akimitsu
My mother wanted to head down to Marine Parade to have dinner and a walk along the beach.
She asked me to invite the person I love to join our family, and surprisingly, he agreed!
So the five of us (my mother, father, aunt, him and I) were going to Marine Parade when it started to rain. Thus we decided to eat at Plaza Singapura instead.
It was between Nando’s and Akimitsu, but my mother didn’t like the environment of Nando’s. Thus we went into Akimitsu instead.
For the five of us, we definitely over ordered HAHAHA. We got 3 “Signature Tendon Sets” with “Hokkaido Milk Pudding” and hot “Lychee Tea”, and 2 “Ebi Tempura Rice Sets” with udon. We also had free chawanmushi as appetizers.
The portion is quite huge (just saying).
But thankfully, we managed to eat 90% of it?
Fifth Spontaneous Decision: Nutcracker Ballet
Saturday night, the person I love asked me whether I’d like to watch Nutcracker with him and I agreed without much thought although the price of one ticket is $55.
He helped to book the tickets and we managed to get seats on the side.
It is my second ballet and I felt nostalgia throughout. Nutcracker is one of my favourite ballets of all time, only second to Swan Lake. Partly because it is set in a Christmas setting ❤
Though Singapore Dance Theatre’s production was different from the original, I was still pleasantly surprised. It was a beautiful ballet, but sadly I caught the last show. I could not share the good news with my friends.
Sixth Spontaneous Decision: Drinks at Supply & Demand (Esplanade)
After the ballet, we decided to walk along the bay area.
Fortunately, we caught sight of the light show. After taking a few photographs of the light show, we decided to get some drinks nearby.
We settled down on the rooftop of Supply and Demand.
We got ourselves two drinks – “Blood and Sand” and “Sex on the Beach”. The funniest part is that we always talk about wanting to see the other person’s drunken state. But this is our first time drinking together. Both the drinks were really nice! “Blood and Sand” is slightly stronger than “Sex on the Beach” but it is still really light. And “Sex on the Beach” is really sweet.
Song obsessions ❤ of this week include:
- Orion’s Belt by Sabrina Claudio.
- Wit It This Christmas by Ariana Grande.
