Snippets of my everyday life

I’m spacing out as I’m typing this at 9:41pm on a weekday and I’m here typing away because I simply can’t concentrate and have no energy to do anything else.

Minus off the time spent working and sleeping, I simply have very very few pockets of time left. Let’s ignore my off days first.

A typical day is now left with commute time and the very few hours I have in between work and sleep. I am starting to realise that I’m most productive during my morning commute time, followed by the evening commute and then that few hours before I sleep.

I’m also doing a lot of things during my commute – which includes reading (and studying) Japanese or Korean, reading up on some of my interests (eg. photography), blogging, doing some work stuff or listening to a podcast etc. This has made me realise how important commute time is to the average adult and how it can actually be put to good use. I’m sorry to sound judgemental but I don’t know how people can waste such precious time on playing mobile games every.single.day.

Try as I might, I just don’t get the draw of games like Candy Crush or what not. Personally, I don’t even think games are relaxing or entertaining (purely my personal opinion) – they simply make me more stressed and uptight.

In any case, I try to spend my time more productively these days (in my own terms) and I’m starting to read again instead of just plugging in my iPod. For the past few days, I’ve been bringing 조선 임금 잔혹사 with me and it has been an awesome read so far.




I don’t know why I’m sooooo drawn towards that era and I really really wanna be well-versed in that part of history. I guess i’m just weird.

I’m making it a point to spend some time before I sleep checking up all the difficult words and writing them into my k-notebook but it’s proving impossible (like now). I can’t go beyond 30mins without spacing out. I think I should make use of this time to exercise (but I’m so tired)…..

Recently I’ve been taking better care of my skin and I think my efforts are paying off. At least my skin is a lot better than it used to be.

Korea really does wonders for me. I was like a mess (in many ways) before this Korea trip but I’ve been A LOT better after coming back and I hope I can keep it up lol.

My mum wagered that I will lapse back 1 month after coming back but hey I’m still doing well hahahaha.

hahaha this post is getting more random.

Oh, I’m kinda tempted to dye my hair but I can’t decide:

1. if I should

2. what color / style

3. where to go

I have never dyed my hair in Singapore….. Any kind souls wanna recommend a place / stylist? 😀

on another note, I’m also looking for photography blog recommendations (:

I’ve also been kinda addicted to looking at instagram accounts of k-models haha. I particularly loveee ireneisgood and I find her style and charisma amazing.

    I totally agree. Time is precious and I can understand how people piss it away like that. I like accomplishing things

    However I disagree with your study method of the handcopying the 300 words into the notebook. I personally don’t tihnk that’s effective or efficient. Also for me handwriting is so time-consuming. since you’re now in this situation where you’re low on time and most likely it’ll just get worse as you get older lol j/k you really should think about the best way to use your time. I really strongly recommend looking into anki or anything else really. I recommend the MCD format.
    HEre’s my MCD format for japanese:

    back of card:

    back: ど

    front めざ___い
    back: と \ 見つけるのが早い。目が早い
    front 何なんです や__から棒に
    back: ぶ//突 《藪の中から突然に棒を出す意から》
    front: ぶた も おだてりゃ木に のぼ)る

    back: しまう

    I don’t know if this looks appealing to you but I just wanted to share in case it does.
