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.
It is celebration week! There was so much happy vibes in the office, all day, all week long. We can’t help it, we really love celebrations! With the numerous impending wedding celebrations and a relatively slower week in the office, the both of us were on a serious mission to hunt for the right pair of high heels. We combed the streets of Orchard Road but neither one of us found a pair that matched our outfits! Who knew that hunting for the right pair can be so tough? We ended up picking something from our personal collection for the weddings this weekend. But… the hunt continues.
The week started off with a surprise birthday party at Fish & Co and coincidentally, it was the Glasshouse’s last day of operation. We can safely say that most of us have accumulated plenty of good and happy memories at the Glasshouse over the years. It makes us sad to think that we have one less option to choose from now. Our weekend was spent celebrating the joyous union of two couples. Weddings tend to leave Min all teary-eyed and Jia feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Don’t you just love weddings too? :)
Min: I can’t remember when was the last time I was so hooked on a Korean drama. When Jia first told me about W, the latest K-drama, I was definitely skeptical. Sci-fi is not my favourite genre but somehow, I always end up getting extremely addicted to it. So asides from the birthday and wedding celebrations, I spent most of my week nights glued to the show. And because every episode had to end with a cliffhanger, I was dying to watch the next one. After a couple of days, I found it extremely tough to detach from the reel world. Tons of work and deadlines were piling up, yet I couldn't help but to talk to Jia about the motives and intentions of each character. Urgh, I am so terrible! I am currently at the denial stage - the stage where I refuse to finish the book/show in fear of saying goodbye to a storyline I like so much. Sigh, life can be so complex sometimes.
Jia: Anddddd, we are in! Wedding season has really arrived. In fact, I just returned from a wedding banquet - it is Sunday night now - and was at another wedding the whole of yesterday. Besides from attending official wedding ceremonies this week, I was also busy with TWO different wedding briefings and a ton of WhatsApp group chats on various aspects of the weddings. Just look at the number of times I have mentioned the word ’wedding’ above!
To top it off, I have been sick since last Sunday so all the parties and festivities have gone by in a hazy blur. No slowing down though as I enter another week of looming deadlines at work and more wedding parties and duties! Phew, ready or not, here I come.
