℘ Life Update Time ℘
Nerve-wrecked on some days, pure bliss on others.
Dining with his family
Yup, you saw that right.
Right now, it seems like a distant memory, but I remember feeling so anxious, my stomach was in knots.
I was rummaging my closet for bottoms that would match the new black jumper I got. I think I went through a few outfits (and in record time too HAHAHA).
Coincidentally, my mom came home the moment I was heading out so she saw my outfit and approved of it. (Seriously boosts my confidence.)
I sped walk my way to the MRT station in fear that I’d be late. And thank God, I wasn’t! In fact, I was right on time (yayyyy HAHA)! I met my partner on the train and we went to meet his family together.
We still had some time so we were walking around for a bit. A short while later, we found out that his parents were already waiting in Sushi Tei.
If I’m going to be completely honest, I was nerve wrecked.
Though it wasn’t my first time meeting them, I was still anxious that I’d do or say something wrong.
But thankfully, all of them were really kind, and I felt a little more at ease towards the end HAHA.
Writing this made me feel all jittery again, and I’m still crossing my fingers that they’ll like me. But I’m pretty glad we dined together! (At least once before I fly off.)
Visiting the Chinese physician for the second time
The first time I visited this doctor, I told him about my back pain, shoulder pain and headaches. And he poked me at a few points with a needle. Then he advised me to not drink cold water. So I heeded his advice and stopped drinking cold beverages.
But my parents insisted that I should visit him a few more times before I leave.
So I went. And this time I wanted to tell him about my problems in more detail. But before I could, he raised his voice and said, “Were you not listening to what I just said?” And it threw me off. But I just kept quiet.
It reminded me of the doctor from the neuroscience clinic I visited.
They don’t listen to the whole story.
And I have to visit him again on Wednesday… Wish me luck.
Meetup with my best girlfriends
The food was so bad. But I was still super duper happy thanks to my girls.
We met at Pastamania at Westmall. I got myself a plate of meatballs with linguine. There were 5 meatballs but only one tasted edible. The other 4 smelt like sweaty shirts. And the pasta tasted really bland.
I don’t have a good palate. Like I enjoy food that tastes bland, but this was way off.
But all of that was tolerable because I was seriously over the moon just seeing their faces.
We talked as usual, about anything and everything. And time flew past just like that.
After finishing our food, we went out to take some polaroids. Considering the awkward souls that we are, we did really well this time. I mean, we actually got really good shots on our own (it’s really hard to take a wefie with a Polaroid camera). And for the first time, I looked decent in a Polaroid photo!
I’m so going to miss them 😥
Second last date
It’s only been four months with each other and yet, it’s already our second last date together before I fly.
Time really really flies.
We ventured into unknown territory – Singapore’s Art Science Museum. And we bought tickets to see the exhibition “Future World: Where Art Meets Science”.
To be honest, the only mind-blowing exhibition for me was “Crows are Chased and the Chasing Crows are destined to be Chased as well, Transcending Space.” Okay, that was a mouthful.
But holy moly, it truly felt like I was in another space. The audiovisual installation was really cool. And I think because it was the first one, the other installations paled in comparison (but they’re good too).
The most fun one was definitely “Black Waves”. We got so many boomerangs in this area HAHAHA.
I was really excited about the “Crystal Universe”, but it was somewhat a little disappointing. Everybody wanted to get great photos, but couldn’t because of space and time constraint.
For dinner, we went to Supply and Demand at Orchard Gateway!
And I got a tasting portion of Carbonara Cremoso. Thankfully we got Garlic Truffle Fries to share if not I might have gone to sleep with a growling stomach at the end of the day! (Thanks babe if you’re reading this.)
Anyway, we went to meet some of his close friends after dinner at Vivo City and I was again, nerve-wrecked HAHAHA.
I keep feeling like his family and friends may not like me. And to be honest, sometimes I still do.
But thankfully they are all super nice (and I even took a group photo with them, like what!?)
Mom’s birthday celebration
So our family friend decided to treat our family to dinner!
I was more excited about the surprise, however.
My dad bought her a bouquet (that I didn’t even see prior to that) and we got her a cake as well hehe (that she doesn’t know about).
After dinner, my mom took our family friend’s car while my dad, my partner and I went to get the flowers and the cake.
Seriously, it was not a super good surprise, but seeing that wide smile on my mother’s face made us happy enough yay 🙂
And to top it all off, I got to spend another few hours with my partner hehe. ❤
