Another month just passed by ….

Health wise, leg wasn’t as painful before but hand is getting painful from typing. Overworked burnout Asian.

My leg wasn’t painful, probably because I didn’t walk as much before. Barely hit 10,000 steps on most days. Partly busy, partly avoiding the sun.

Gaining weight because of inactivity and binged eating.

Still playing Pokemon but it is feeling like tasks rather than hobby. Barely touch piano tiles nowadays.

Spent $$$ on online shopping. But, so far, I am liking and using the stuff that I bought. Also, been buying many products to protect face such as moisturiser, mist, screen protectors.

Managed to read two books despite being busy.

Also, stepped into the cinema for the first time this year to watch Crazy Rich Asian. The best part of the movie is the first 5 minuets .

Have an extremely short vacation doing nothing.

  • Next month, need to eat healthily, sleep more and exercise more. Taking care of myself instead of pouring myself into never ending work.

    Half a year just flew by

    Half a year has gone. Decided to take a break from work on last week of June.

    Decided to take care of myself.

    Before the ‘vacation’, went for a dental checkup. Didn’t realise I haven’t went for a checkup for 4 years.

    Went for a 2nd opinion for my knee and have an expensive injection. Still painful after walking too much but I can climb stairs 🙂 Hopefully the injection works fully as I learnt that the benefit should be felt after 4 weeks.

    Have checkup on my eyes. The last checkup was a decade ago. Luckily, no major problem 🙂 Made a new spectacles.

    Finally, decided to take care of the hyper pigmentation of my face. Hope it works 💸💸

    I also replaced the battery on my iPhone. Really worth the $38 as the battery was draining very fast prior to the replacement.

    Also bought a pair of shoes as the current working shoes are more than 5 years.

    Spent so much money just in the month of June. But, 💸💸💸💸💸is for my health and personal grooming. I should not neglect myself.


    Didn’t update this blog for more than a month.

    How I spent my May :

    Been working extremely hard. Busy does not equal to productivity. So much things are not up to my control.

    Bringing parents for medical checkups.

    Usually eat alone with low expectations of food. But happy that do have gatherings with old friends, new colleagues and family members.

    Still playing Pokémon. Been going many places just to spin new pokestops just for the extra points. Been catching and raiding to catch shinies with no success. Been watching concerts. Been overseas for holidays and staycation with family. Walk too much for this game.

    Binged watch 愛。回家.

    Read a few books, including Invoices which is about invoice for emotions.

    Played in the pools although I can’t swim.

    Cycled for two hours. Tiring but happy.





    Alone but not lonely

    Often alone, but seldom lonely.

    I am loneliest when I am in a crowd.


    Got three Mewtwo, ✌️.

    Started taking Recogen, and legs seemed to get slightly better.

    Enjoying greenery again after I couldn’t jog or walk long distance. Taking buses all over town for Pokémon raid or just escaping from the MRT when I don’t have to commute to work.

    Read a few books on calming down.

    Every morning, I took a few deep breaths at the fitness corner near my house, before i face the real world.
