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.
Pffffffft. Here is a #truestory to kickstart the post. If you noticed something different about our header, well done! We went away for the weekend as we were in a dire need for some spiritual rest. We brought along our stickies and stayed up till midnight on Saturday to finish them. On Sunday morning, as the terrible lighting in the room just didn't cut it, we decided to bring the side table to the balcony to shoot the stickies in natural light. And... CRRRRASHHHH! It turned out that the glass panel portion of the table was not sealed to the wooden structure! We had to pay some $$$ for the damages but thankfully, we were not seriously injured even though Jia's feet took the impact of the glass. So yea, this week's stickies were shot against a wooden background instead of our usual white!
Away with the negative and in with the positive! Our 2 days stint at Orchard Gateway ended on Friday, and though we were dog tired, our hearts are still full from all the encouragement and love! THANK YOU all for taking time to swing by and for putting a huge Cheshire cat smile on our faces. We are so grateful for the conversations and for the friendships that w are slowly growing. Also, thank you for your patience when Min took an eternity to ring up your items. Though being a cashier was a childhood dream job, we finally understood the pain of the NTUC aunty when we buy a cart full of junk food...
Oh yes! We'll be at Public Garden Consumer Trade Show, Suntec Convention Hall 403 this coming weekend (23/24 April 2016), and we hope to see you there. Students, study well and eat Gingko Biloba for excellent memory!
Min: What a week! I know I say this every week but really, what a week! If I had to sum up my entire week in a few words, it'll be "TOTALLY ON FIRE". Bit and pieces of my Life Plan were revealed this week and I can safely say that I am more assured now. Feel so good to be drawing strength from my Abba Father!
Anyhoo, you guys know how much I adore my chips but strangely, I was craving for cold crunchy cucumbers ALL WEEKEND! *horror* How is that even possible? Is it something to do with age? A conversation on Friday left me speechless because now I know how much potassium a pack of chips contain. And that too much potassium leads to potential heart failure! *horror* Maybe that was why I was craving for cucumbers. It's the fear of heart failure. So dear friend (the one I was conversing with), please please please eat less bananas, if you want to eat chips. Wishing you good health, ok? :)
Jia: If I were to sum up my week in a word, it would be 'tired'. I am very tired. In fact, this post is going up much later than usual as I couldn't get my act together to finish up this section. I have been sneaking in naps whenever I get the chance to. Exhaustion is a real thing, everyone.
I have this habit of just lying on the floor in a corpse pose at home whenever I am super tired or feeling majorly down. The coolness of the floor always rejuvenates me after some time, plus it is always cute to see my cats coming towards me in wonder and then, finding a spot nearby to chill with me. All I have been wanting to do since Thursday - I had the worst tension headache in ages - is to get into my favourite corpse pose on the floor of my living room. Now that I am finally done with the week, I think I will do just that.
How was your week? Share some juicy and exciting bits with us! :)
With Love, Min+Jia
