Dear Diary | September 2023 Edition

Dear September,

There we go into the last third of the year. Let's not allow every single day going wasted on chasing after the "ideals". It's time to treat myself a little better, whenever possible :)

01.09.2023 | Happy polling day! September began with a long weekend that allowed me to spend some relaxing time exploring JB city, exploring nooks and corners other than the famous Tan Hiok Nee heritage street. ❤ And also indulging into the nostalgic food such as the super fluffy peanut butter bun and hearty plate of mee siam with chicken leg. 

02.09.2023 | A lazy Sunday called for a floral scoop of Birds of Paradise's White Chrysanthemum gelato, sprinkled with cacao nibs. Thank you for always pampering me with sweetness! 

Favourite kaisen don and truffle fries @ Tanuki Raw

08.09.2023 | TGIF! Happy to meet up with a friend who shared the equal amount of love towards Japan! And we had so much fun chatting with each other while indulging into the fresh oysters and fusion Japanese food here. Hope you can come visit me in Singapore again soon :D

Dim sum @ Lei Garden

09.09.2023 | Happiest weekend of the month  Time flies by quickly whenever I am with a great companion. Here we are, kickstarting the weekend by tucking into some delicious fried turnip cake and assortment of dim sum. As always, thank you for spending some quality time with me!

13.09.2023 | Mid-week treat. Happiness is when I receive random surprises that warm not only my tummy, but also my heart. Such daily dose of sweetness reminds me of how well taken care I am, since those ol' days back in KL.

Mid-Autumn Festival 2023 – Garden of Blooms @ Gardens by the Bay

16.09.2023 | It's the time of the year again where colorful lanterns light up the Gardens in the evening! ❤ My favourite part of the event is the Traditional Lanna Lanterns @ Supertree GroveOriginated from the Northern Thailand, the traditional handcrafted Lanna Lanterns that resemble the rich culture and joyous celebration are not to be missed. 
Pretty sights everywhere! 

The stunning displays feature a secret Chinese garden beyond the beautiful moon gate, adorned with flora of great significance to Chinese culture, including the lotus, peach blossom, and bamboo; a Magpie Bridge inspired by the Chinese mythological tale of the Cowherd and the Weaver Girl; and a distinctive Chinese Pavilion for a panoramic view of the garden. Definitely worth a visit!

23.09.2023 | Homebound.  Back into the arms of people I love the most, for a short weekend. Had my hair pampering session, attended a home wedding dinner, shared little happy things with my parents, met up with old friends and a lot more. That's the simplest happiness about being home :)

美心流心奶黃月餅 Hong Kong Mei Xin Lava Custard Mooncakes 

29.09.2023 Happy Mid-Autumn Festival! ❤ Thank you for such a sweet and heart-warming box of lava custard mooncakes all the way from Hong Kong. The oozing filling of salted egg custard is just so satisfyingly goooooooood. 

On the evening of mid-autumn @ Crystal Jade Palace

A lovely Chinese dinner that brings out the flavours closer to home, 
paired with Mandarin Oriental Snow Skin Mooncakes.

Mid-Autumn Festival marks a sweet ending for the month of September, 
and I am looking forward to more merry celebrations and festivities. 

Not forgetting to mention the very special gift from Hong Kong - thanks for bringing home something that truly resembles the iconic Hong Kong.

❤ ❤ 
September is, again, nothing short of self-healing. It has been a long process, but necessary for better growth. 

Honestly, you may be afraid but... 
    What if everything works out?
    What if all the efforts and time lead to amazing things?
    What if everything you are going through is preparing you for what you asked for? 
    What if all the struggles have been leading you to a beautiful chapter in your life?
    What is the best that could happen?

Let's focus on good.
Remember, what is meant for you, will be yours at the end of the day. 

It is not easy to find companions who can be the constants throughout my life. Some of the time, I wonder how could I get by the days here without having these constants by my side. Thank you Fate for bringing me and these people together. 

❤ ❤ 

Cheers to the last quarter of the year!
