Last week was such an amazing week for me. I accomplished many things at once, beyond my expectation. I can't wait to share it with you. 

Went to office in this vintage chiffon shirt and suede skirt. Notice my feather earrings? It's one of my most favourite pieces I got it from Bangkok. I used to hate warm colors (pink, red, orange, purple) but recently many people suggested me to wear those colors because they look good on me. What do you think? 

So, I went to the office, worked half day only because my company was having a lunch event to recognize and to give out the award to top performer of the year  2011. I was one of the top performers last year. I felt incredibly proud. I was asked to deliver a speech upon acceptance of the award, to sing a song, and to share my successful story in front of many people. It's like a WOW! Amazing!

 With Hong, my best manager who has been giving me a HUGE support in everything I do. Sometimes I just wonder "Why on earth, there is such a super nice person like him?" Seriously! He is too nice for words. I'm so grateful and lucky to have the chance to work with him, to have him as my manager for the past 2 years. OMG! Feel so emotional when talking about it.

This is the second time I'm honored to receive this award.  So proud of myself!

Having to run an errand to a few different places for meetings in a day so I decided to wear pants & shirt to be more convenient in moving around. Whenever I have sometimes for myself, I always love having a cup of Frapuccino Caramel without Whipping Cream at Starbucks, sitting at one place and doing my works while waiting for my client. And here as usual, with my favorite drink and doing what exactly I love to do. How happy!

At night, I went to teach dancing and got really surprised by my students. I totally didn't expect them to give me any present in their last class but they did. Plus a very sweet card with everyone's message in it. The small little thing simply made my day. That's the reason why I love teaching dance so much.
From knowing nothing about dancing to being able to dance with music after 6 classes, I'm proud of them.

Turtleneck top with peplum skirt and bad-ass accessories. Not forget to mention my rocky open toe boots from GUESS I got it for S$49 only. Thank you! Great Singapore Sales! :D How do you name this look?

After too many bright and bold colored outfits, I went back to basic with black and white combination. They can never go wrong at any time, any place. Sometimes, two extreme contrasting colors can still make a perfect match.

After work, I went back home, cooked a nice dinner. All of my friends always got really surprised when they knew that I can cook. They thought I'm a Shopaholic, party girl. I never know how to do housework. They are wrong, lolz
When I have my own family in the future, I will love cooking nice dinner for my husband. I think it's a great way to create bonding between husband and wife to build a happy family. Even with the simplest dishes, but home cooked foods are always much better than any first class restaurant. Don't forget women, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. :)

 Cut off the roots of Pak Choy (Chinese vegetable has soft green leaves, a crunchy plae stem and a mild flavour) and I made it look like green roses. Isn't it cute?

Because it's Friday, so I usually allow myself to wear something more casual, simpler or sexier, it depends on my mood. Last Friday, I wore a very cute floral bodycon dress from Forever21 and some matching accessories. I thought it might be too casual for work because it's a cotton dress but people commented I looked too sexy for work. I don't know, you tell me!

 Arm candy for the day!

 Love this floral dress, so comfortable and cute with the ribbon at the back too.

Started up my day with my favorite Starbucks coffee while I was in the cab. 

 It was the longest day I've ever had. I went to the office to do some works  from 10am to 2pm and began my house moving after that. It poured rain heavily right after we started. I don't know why it must always rain when I move house :(. Some said it's a good thing, the rain will sweep away all the bad luck, unhappiness and make everything clean and clear after that. Others said "Maybe the God feels pity you", lolz

 6 luggages full of cloths, accessories were waiting to be moved. Only when I moved house, I realized how much stuffs I have. It's crazy! The more I packed, the more stuffs I found.

I was so lucky to have my best colleagues & friends to help. There are some special people I have to say THANK YOU to:
Thank to Hong & Yong who helped to drive all of these nonsense stuffs to my new house despite it was raining so heavily.
Thank to Camile, Alicia & Carmen who helped me to pack, unpack and organize all my cloths, shoes, etc....nicely. Not to mention, you guys accompanied me from 12pm to 12.30am till everything was done. Wow! I don't know how to return such a great favor. I don't know how would I do without your guys help. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

Here are some photos of these amazing people who were trying to help me. 

 Alicia was helping me to unpack my luggages. She looked tired though -_-

 Carmen was helping me to arrange my beauty corner 

and she is also the person who arranged this shoe cabinet so nicely. 

Yes! Finally! A dream shoe cabinet became true. :p

Camile was helping me in my make-up corner 

and she also decorated this Accessories corner so beautifully. 

About myself, what did I do? 
I unpacked and put all of my clothes, dress, bags in the walk-in closet. YES! I have my own walk-in closet which I have been talking about it for years. :D. Here it is!

Decorated my mirror with some flowers. 

 My friends helped me to put on the bed sheet, arranged the bed nicely for me to make sure I would have a sweet dream in a new house for the first night.

 Mr. Winnie the Pooh is now my sleeping partner. I hold his hands to sleep every night.

My other 10 door wardrobe. I have too much empty space here. 

Everyday when I wake up, the first thing I'll do in the morning is to look at this beautiful view and tell myself "Things will be great. Good things do take time. I just need to be patient and don't give up"

And you want to know how my room looks like? Here it is:

Yes! It's massive for a single person I know. At least, after staying at many different houses, this is one of the rooms that makes me fall in love with from the first look. 

Went down shopping some necessary stuffs for the room, I chose to wear pretty simple with basic T-shirt, short and braided hairstyle. Till now, I still have not gotten used to the fact that Orchard Road- a shopping paradise is just few steps away from my house. Feel weird! How to save money like that?

The best activity of the day: I got a ticket from Lancome to attend Michelle Phan's make up workshop on 29th July. Can't wait to see her here in Singapore.

So, that was my crazy last week. It was such a short week, but there were so many expected and unexpected things happened.

I have never blamed for any bad things happened in my life. In fact, I appreciated them because bad things happen for a reason and it will always make you become wiser and stronger. I don't want to look back at the past, I also don't want to look too far in future. I want to enjoy the moment right now and to live life to the fullest. That should be the way. Sometimes, too much worries can kill our present happiness which we deserve to have but we waste it.

Now, all I need to do is.......to sleep. It's already freaking 2.30am.
Good night!
