Spiritual Flower

"Your Spirit Flower is the Daisy"
You value close relationships with friends. You count on your friends as much as they count on you.
You are completely unpretentious and carefree. All you care about is whether someone is a good person.

You are a natural counselor. You listen well and give out good advice when needed.
You love all of life's simple pleasures. You find a lot of joy in a walk outdoors or a day at the park.

Support Needed

When I arrived at school today for counselling, I saw many pairs of shoes outside a particular room. I was very tickled over what I saw but I didn't dare laugh as it was a serious matter for the students. 
That particular room is the prayer room. 
Examinations start tomorrow. 
Whatever helps the students to feel less anxious for the examinations is good with me too, be it emotional support from counselling or spiritual support from praying.

May you always enjoy good health and good fortune!

Midnight Mint Mocha

I couldn't resist any drink that has mint in it. Tried out the latest Starbucks drink, Midnight Mint Mocha. It was very chocolatey and minty! I could hardly taste the coffee in it so that is good since I am not a fan of coffee. :P

The Funny Reality

There is a reason why I love working with students. This simple drawing by one of my counsellees is why! It is the reality but I couldn't stop laughing.

Back to Back

I had back to back meetings today. 
First meeting on campus (1030-1230pm) and then running off to a school meeting in Toa Payoh area (2-3pm) and then back to campus for another meeting (4-6pm). Really exhausted by the end of the day.

Comfort Food

I had a much needed break with this sumptuous asparagus rice with cream sauce (vegetarian). Sometimes, all that one needs for a break is just comfort food. :)

饮水思源

I saw this in a school I visited today, 饮水思源. 
It has a lot of meaning for me personally because my mother always taught my brother and I since young that we must always 饮水思源 which literally means when we drink, we must think of its source. In plain words, it means that we must be grateful for our blessings, never take things for granted and never forget one's origins.

Apologies for the Silence

I have been very busy at work since my work portfolio has expanded and have not been updating my blog regularly. :( Sincere apologies. 
I must find time and get back to my blogging as it is a form of me time for me. I need to take better care of myself!

It isn't spicy and taste really like laksa. :)

Self-Care

I will take this to heart.
"You Could Practice More Self-Care"
You would like to practice self-care more often, but it's hard to find the time!
Try giving yourself just a few minutes every now and then. Even taking a few deep breaths can help.

While you may not have the spare time to take care of yourself, you don't have time to be stressed either.
Your happiness, health, and well-being matter. So try to put yourself first a little more often.

Miss Sherlock

I heard there is going to be a new Sherlock tv series from Japan on HBO. Judging from the trailers I have seen so far, I can't wait for it! Miss Sherlock and Dr Wato-San. Brilliant!

The Plaid Test

Nothing wrong with being conventional.
"You Are Conventional"
You are organized and productive. You know how to spend your time wisely.
Following the rules feels natural to you. You can't imagine living outside the law.

You don't really appreciate strangeness. You feel put off by eccentricities.
You would rather follow the straight and narrow, even if it's a bit boring. There's nothing wrong with boring!

New Hobby?

Hmm, time to try a new hobby?
"You Are Photography"
You are a very observant person. You can't tune out the world around you, so you pay careful attention to it.
You prefer to be the one who blends into the scenery, so that you can totally appreciate the scenery.

You tend to see things that other people miss. You have an artist's eye. You can turn anything into art.
Photography is the perfect hobby for you because you can just hang back, watch, and create.
