Sunday Stickies is a column where we reflect on the past week and pen those thoughts down on sticky pads. Expect notes to ourselves and others, advice, reminders for the week ahead, quotes, and anything random actually.
We may have developed a case of Scissors Hands and suffered crazy delusions over the last few weeks but it was all worth it when we met you, dear NTU students. Thank you NTU for your hospitality and warmth (the warmth from the sun was also real)! So. Much. Love. And we feel it! All the best for your finals, NUS and NTU students! Study hard, but remember to eat well, drink up and rest your eyes! :)
Also, there has been a lot of excitement going on at our studio this week because something big is happening soon! More details will be coming your way very soon so keep refreshing your Instagram feed or simply join our Mailing List to get updates and sneak peeks. Join us as we countdown to something very exciting. Hint: it's a childhood dream come true!
If you have no plans this weekend, you may want to head down to The People Avenue's Pop-Up Store at Orchard Gateway #02-01. We have our items stocked over there, along with many cool stuff from our friends. Have a great weekend ahead everyone!
Min: Singapore's weather is really getting too hot. I don't seem to be drinking fast enough to replenish the water I lose from perspiring. Oh, dehydration is the worst! I woke up on Friday morning feeling like 1000kg. It could actually be the Jagabee that I have been eating or it could be some serious overheating in my body! So, here's a fierce reminder to myself: DRINK WATER. Sigh, my constant struggle with water consumption!
Ever since my beloved black doggy left me for dog heaven, I have been feeling sooooo blue. I miss him all the time and I am terribly envious of dog owners and their dogs. I 'ooooh' and 'ahhhh' each time I see happy dogs and my heart aches. I can't wait to adopt another furry friend and yet I don't know if I will be able to move on. My black doggy is my best friend and I miss him so... :(
Jia: #foodwoes. If I had to create a hashtag (side note to myself: but whatever for?!) to describe my week, that would be it. In theory, I like the idea of sour food. However, I have terrible tolerance for sourness! While I was walking around the food area of NTU on Wednesday, I thought it would be a great and refreshing idea to drink iced hand-squeezed lime juice to cool down, as we have been under the heat for hours. O.m.g. the sourness was unbearable. My bad idea took an even deeper dive into the worst-ideas-pool when Min and I encouraged each other to finish drinking the juice. A little while later, I had really bad stomach pains due to the acidity of the lime juice. I am such a wuss.
Another #foodwoes situation occured when I suddenly had the most intense avocado craving. I wanted to eat avocados there and then, so Min and I snuck out of our studio during working hours in search of some. You can only imagine my dismay when we were greeted by super green avocados at every turn. None of them were even close to being ripe. One word: shucks!
How has the start of April been for you?
With Love, Min+Jia.
