  • 03/13/14--08:39: Amore Fitness
  • I've been going to Amore Fitness gym for a pretty long time and I think it's one of the best gym in Singapore for ladies! Feeling Good Should Be This Easy.

    I used to join mixed gender gyms and I do feel uncomfortable exercising with men around me. It is kinda intimidating cus some look so fierce and tough and uhm....am I weird to think guys are smellier than girls? Ok oops I said it. :X It's like id rather be around sweaty girls than sweaty boys. :X hahaha! 

    Anyhow, yes it is such a joy being in an all girls gym! I love it and I will definitely renew my membership when it ends this year. Plus there are outlets all over Singapore! I live in the east and my bf lives in the west. Whenever I stay over at my bf's I can go to the amore gym in the west side instead of traveling back to the outlet I usually go to (which is Bugis). So convenient! :)

    Whenever you first join a gym, you will be given a tour and the trainers would be more than glad to teach you how to use the machines so don't worry about not knowing how to operate it. I know many people ask me what to do at the gym! Well I would suggest you take up a personal training lesson (sometimes you get one free trial so take that opportunity), tell the trainer what you'd like to train and learn the circuit so u can apply it on your own the next time you go to the gym! They are the professionals and can give better tips than me. I also learnt most of the tips from them before I worked out on my own.







    This year, Amore has a new package launch.

    Introducing the...

    Amore Holistic Package!

    The new Amore Holistic Package allows one to choose from anything under Amore’s offering to create a personalised package. Meaning you can choose any of Amore’s services which includes the gym, group exercise classes, spa, personal training and more!

    I love the Amore Holistic Package and think it's so awesome because after your gym session, you can go for a massage to rejuvenate and relieve your tired and sore muscles!

    Also, they have introduced a special points systems, Unipoints, are introduced for cashless, seamless payment and with this package, you will be entitled to choose anything from all of its offerings. On top of this, one will also be entitled to larger birthday discounts and promotions.

    Trial promotion is also available for those who want see how it works. Here is a promotion we are running for March:

    Experience an all-rounded holistic experience with Amore Fitness & Boutique Spa!

  • 03/16/14--08:14: Week #14

  • I can't wait to "pop". To look pregnant. It's so weird but I don't want to be stuck at this size. I kinda wanna look bigger so I look pregnant and that will give me a valid reason to look "big". Week after week, the increase on the weighing scale scares me. And it's only gonna get worse! I have read a lot and I know this is not a time to be weight conscious and no one should ever attempt to lose weight during pregnancy but...I just find it really tough to accept myself gaining so much. Was it tough for you during pregnancy too? I hope to overcome this "fear of gaining weight" thing and really be genuinely happy about the weight gain. 

    This week I visited Taka and saw the baby fair! So tempted to buy baby stuff but I still don't know my baby's gender. About 2 more weeks to go and hopefully I would know my baby gender then! In which week did you find out your baby's gender? I've heard people finding out as soon as Week 14? That's a rare case right? I also read online some mommies not wanting to know the gender of their babies till the day of birth. Wow, how do they contain that excitement?! I'm so kanchiong I just can't wait to find out!!! Since the day I found out I was preggers, I've been looking forward to the day I know the gender. If you are wondering if I have any gender preferences, well...I don't mind either sex. In the beginning I reeeeeally wanted a girl though! How nice it'll be to dress her up in similar outfits as me and make her look like a mini me! She can also wear cute pouffy multi colored tutus that I can never wear at my age. Or more like I can't pull it off. However, after talking to a few mommies who have sons, I realised boys can be a whole lot of fun too! I can dress him up too and he can be a lil dapper. Think lil boy dressed in a white shirt, berms and loafers...oh so cute! Oh not forgetting a pair of aviator glasses. Aww!!! So yes... i love both equally much! I even have a name in mind already. :)

    If you are wondering if I have a baby bump...


    Yes I think I do after taking this picture at the gym! Look what happened to my flat tummy! I wonder if I'm just fatter now or if it's really a baby bump though? How do you tell the diff? I would like to think it's a baby bump because I've never had a big belly before.

  • 03/22/14--02:00: Size Matters

  • I find it extremely difficult to do my OOTDs nowadays. Before i was pregnant, i was a UK6-8 and in Singapore, it was the average size. In fact, i've always felt "bigger" than my friends because they were mostly UK4-6. However, when i'm at home, i feel skinny because my step dad who is american always tells me i'm "thin" when compared to girls in America. So yeah, i've never really felt uncomfortable with my size and whenever felt fat i could just go for a loooong jog to make myself feel better. I always complained about weight gain and shit but it's only now that i realize that weight gain is nonsense, i'm facing REAL weight gain now.

    No one told me i'd have such huge boobies and butt during pregnancy. My arms and thighs seem to have doubled in size. Abs? Man, i kinda forgot how those look like. I always thought i'd be one of those girls who would only "grow a big belly" during pregnancy and everything else would stay the same. Hmmmmm but NOOO...i'm expanding everywhere! My appetite is madness...and everyone around me spoils me too much! My mom and friends keep feeding me and making sure i eat more. And i just can't say no to food...so yeah, no surprise to the weight gain~

    This few days I can't fit most of my pants...not even those which used to be slightly loose on me. I had to shop for pants which are UK10 or bottoms with elastic bands. I couldn't fit most "blog shop" clothes i was being sponsored as most items fit UK8 best. Even for my own shop's stuff which i imported from overseas. I could only fit self-manufactured items which came in sizes and can only wear size M-L now. It's not THAT bad because yes i still could still fit some but i felt i didn't look good in it cus the models are way smaller. The blog shops cater to "mass market" and when i can no longer fit into those "free size" clothes, i realized being a UK10 meant i was bigger than the average (referring to girls under 30 years old because the average size for girls over 30 is around UK10-12 - i guess it's because of child birth or slow metabolism).

     I finally understood why a lot of girls in Singapore who look healthy and normal go on a diet. I have a few friends who are above UK10 and to me they look awesome! However most of them are extremely insecure and unhappy with their bodies and always called themselves Fat. To me they didn't look fat at all but now that i am a UK10 myself, i kinda understand where they are coming from. I know how it feels to "feel fat" even though i'm not exactly fat. 

    As I scroll through my Instagram, i realized most of the popular girls i follow are tiny UK6-8. They look good in everything and that made me jealous!!! I wish i could be that size again! Do they even eat i wonder?! Wow they are so tinyyyy! I have been kinda upset because i can no longer aim to look that way for the next few months, it's gonna be the opposite. Those girls really make me feel sooo huge. Then i put myself into the shoes of girls who were never "skinny" and who also followed all this eye candies too. I realized how it really can kill ones self-esteem. I know there are many girls out there who just hate dressing up and taking pictures because of the way they feel because for the past few weeks, that was how i felt. I hated my body image and i couldn't stop feeling ugly. However something just struck me a few days ago and i decided to enjoy this new body. I decided to LOVE MYSELF no matter what size i am. Given a choice, i'd work out to have my dream body but because i'm restricted now, i will not whine and complain but instead, choose to love this new shape.

    It is wonderful we can look at our friends, sisters, mothers, without the slightest thought to their flaws... but can obsess for hours on our own imperfections! We just think about our flaws to the point we shirk at any documentation that our round faces and curvy bodies ever walked the earth. Well babe, life doesn't wait until you "get thin" enough to live it happily. Life is happening... it is happening right now and y'know what, make the best out of it while you can! Please remember that the insecurities we have in our heads will never be a part of how our friends, family, boyfriends, see us! They love us for who we are, not how we look.

    It is ok if you're bigger than average, as long as you are confident you can and will look good! I will keep telling myself that and i will not feel ugly anymore! I am still beautiful me and if i'm this size, i can still dress up by wearing clothes that will flatter my body. Being bigger than average does not mean you aren't beautiful! It really is very important to feel happy about yourself because when you are, everything seems to fall nicely in place and you will be more well-liked. Who likes being around people who are unhappy and whiney all the time, a person who can't stop complaining about how they look and pulling a long face all the time. I have done that the past few weeks and well, those days are GONE! No more whining and crying and being sad!

    In Singapore, people call people fat too easily. What would be considered fat? An overweight person - having a BMI of 25 and above. Anyone who isn't overweight and is at a healthy weight is not fat and should not be categorized as fat. There's a reason why it's called "Healthy Weight". You're eating good, and getting enough for your body.

    If you are happy and can deal with being bigger than average, good job girl! But if you really really cannot love what you see in the mirror everyday then what are you waiting for? Do something about it! Eat healthy and go exercise! By doing that you will feel happier and proud of yourself because results are 100% guaranteed.

     p.s then again, this is not a post to encouraging you to stay overweight/obese if you are though...because you know that is an unhealthy approach to life and being on a healthy diet is something you should be on for better health and a brighter future.

    When i found out Kin Kin Chilli Pan Mee is now available in Singapore, i jumped for joy! Ok i shall call it Ban Mian because in Singapore we call it Ban Mian. 

    Just a few days back, i had a craving for it and i can't believe i actually managed to get a taste of it without driving 4 hours up to Kuala Lumpur. 


    If you came across my KL post last year, you'd see that i visited the Kin Kin Pan Mee stall in KL and fell in love!


    I have not came across any stall in Singapore which serves the same kind of Chilli Ban Mian. At Kin Kin, the chilli they use is dried roasted chilli flakes


    Break the egg and mix it real good!

    So....how was it???

    It tasted similar to KL's except the Chilli is not as spicy. I am a huge fan of spicy stuff so i reeeeally wish they'd make the chilli the same as KL's. :(

    It's still good though! Satisfied my kin kin pan me craving fo' sure!

    I thought they took too long to serve us the food though...

    Oh! And we went at 5.30pm and at around 6pm we heard the noodles were "Sold Out". My friend and i just looked at each other and went "Whaaaat?! Then what can they sell?!" Lol. It's so weird because that's what the specialize in and 5.30pm wasn't even dinner time yet! Man, the dinner crowd must have felt so disappointed. Guess they didn't expect it to be such a hit in SG.

    Location:
    534 MacPherson Road
    Singapore 368220


    p.s my favorite fried intestine kway chap place is just a few shops away!!! and i also really like the teochew porridge there. so if kin kin is sold out, go try the kway chap!

  • 03/28/14--18:00: Chio Mom = Bad Mom
  • I've been receiving comments about how i'm "unfit" to be a mother just because i complain about "weight gain". That was really gonna be the last post and i was serious about learning to be happy with whatever size. Just let me complain lah...i was just really not used to it. If how i looked was all i cared about, i could just be on a diet however, i still choose to eat enough and healthily so i can gain enough weight so my baby will be healthy. I'm just whining...can? JUST LET ME GIVE IN TO MY "HUMAN EMOTIONS".

    And it hurts when i get comments like "give your baby up for adoption lah"....WTF?! OR even "can't wait to see your life spiral down after your child is born"....what the hell? Really? Seriously man. Even before my baby is born, you assume i'm gonna be the worst mom ever?! Just because i complain a bit about my "insecurities" doesn't mean i will not be able look after my child properly or do what i have to do to raise my child the right way. Just because i said i want to be a "chio" mom doesn't mean i'd be a bad mom. Chio Mom = Bad Mom, Ugly Mom = Good Mom??? Is that YOUR LOGIC? You think i don't want what is best for my own child? I obviously won't do anything to harm my child. If say i still go smoke and drink alcohol and get drunk while pregnant then yeah, you can scold me all you want and say those mean stuff because those are obviously WRONG and harmful. That would clearly show i can't give up things which will harm my child. However, if i can't help but still want to look pretty, really very wrong meh?

    Anyhow, right now, i'm just super excited and happy. I may have complained a little here and there but believe me, everyday i'm just telling my parents and my friends how happy i am and how i can't wait to hold my lil one in my arms. I just keep counting down to the 9 months! I'm almost halfway there already!!! ALMOST. Well some days i get so excited i feel that time is passing so slowly and i wish i could speed it up but then there are some days i'm all like OMG I'M ALREADY IN THE 2ND TRIMESTER. Things have changed quite a bit now. Every night before i sleep, i read up on motherhood and everyday i am learning something new! It is interesting and exciting.....I CAN'T WAAAAAAIT. I even started finding out which preschool i should enroll my child in. Also cannot stop watching baby videos. My favorite baby has to be XX's Dash! I can replay her instavids of him over and over again!

  • 03/30/14--06:28: RAKUTEN

  • Have you heard of Rakuten??


    It is a Japanese electronic commerce and Internet company which provides services such as online retail, online banking and payment, securities and entertainment. Rakuten Ichiba is Japan’s #1 online shopping mall


    Please read on because there's a reward for you at the end of the post ;)



    It is a shopping site which is very organized. You can easily find products you want by typing in the search bar or browsing the relevant categories.




    Find really good deals!

    Get stretchy skinny pants for $7.90!

    You can even buy...



    Yes, FOOD!


    I saw the picture of the premium wagyu and got soooo tempted to order some for dinner. Oh and look at the King Crab Leg....LOVE IT.



    And yes, not forgetting…beauty products!

    Here are some items I bought from Rakuten…




    I hope this will help me to sleep better!




    Sometimes after a long day at work and I want to go out for dinner with my friends, i freshen up with the help of this (I've used it before!). I like this much better than regular wipes as some wipes leave a sticky finish but this one leaves a nice powdery finish!




    This is the secret to looking young!!! I'm still young but my older friends recommend I start taking it early so I'd never have aging problems. Haha. Also, there are SOO many other benefits!


    I think they have the best prices in town!


    Got another beauty product for myself!

    It’s a mineral clay mask that has glacial minerals to remove impurities from our skin. Heard that it was previously only available in Europe and Japan and now it’s available in SG~~~~ This will definitely be on my list of cult beauty products!!!





    Does anyone know if Green Tea is bad for preggy mothers? I have not touched any caffeinated drinks since pregnancy but this is organic green tea!!!


     

    Got some clothes too~~~

    My fashion haul here:

    This cardi is good for me especially for my current needs. 
    And omg the model is so chio and petite!





    Remember my problems with fitting into “free sized” clothes??? Well, I chose this layered chiffon sleeveless top that allows me some space at my tummy area and covers my baby bump well~



    Like how this top has flares at the tummy area as well!



    9. Denim Striped Dress

    Something sweet for all the girly girls out there~



    +



     

     

    This blouse is so comfy, love it! Have it in white.





    Love floral prints!! Couldn’t resist not getting these.




    Gotta stop there now, burning a hole in my pocket!
    I hope you will enjoy shopping at RAKUTEN as much as I do! :)

    Remember I mentioned at the start that there’s something for you guys as well?


    Just quote ‘TAMMY20’ to get $20 offwith min $80 spent!

    Valid till 6th April.

    Happy shopping~!

  • 03/31/14--20:49: Week #16 (Cravings)
  • Taken last week at the gym! 

    Ive not been having any weird cravings nor have I liked eating anything I used to dislike. 

    Have spoken to a few people and realised one of the most common food/fruit people dislike is Durian. My manicurist told me how she used to love Durian before pregnancy and during pregnancy it was totally different. Also had friends who hated Coke (gassy drinks) before pregnancy but during pregnancy they loved it.

    For me, I like most food/fruits/drinks and it's really difficult to find something I dislike to like. I eat like...everything!!! Haha. This pregnancy is like my free pass to eat all I want. Everyday like buffet :X Well, there's one food I hate....bitter gourd. Maybe if I try it now ill like it? Haha.

    Oh!!! But I'm damn weird now. Whenever I look at a basket of fried chicken wings, I feel like vomiting when I look at the wings. But it's not because I don't like the taste of it, but I just don't like the shape of it?!?! Especially fried chicken. LOL! I used to aim the wings first then the drumlets but for some weird reason now I avoid the wings and go for the drumlets instead. It's not exactly a weird "craving" but it's weird right? Hahaha. 

    Oh and my love for bread...OH MAN...cray! I love bread but it's SUPER LOVE now. I just bought this Raisin Loaf and gobbled 6 pieces JUST LIKE THAT.

  • 04/02/14--20:49: Sony a5000 Camera


  • Sony Introduces the World’s Lightest Interchangeable-lens Digital Camera1, with Built in Wi-Fi and NFC
    a5000 offers DSLR-style quality and creative power without weighing you down

    I just bought the Sony NEX3 (in pink) not long ago and mentioned it on Instagram! Had some people telling me what a great choice i made to get that camera. When i had a chance to get my hands on this new Sony a5000 i was so happy because this is a "better" version and it comes with build in Wi-Fi.

    Nowadays, most bloggers take pictures using their cameras then transfer to their phone via Wi-Fi. Which would explain why some bloggers have pictures which are so much clearer and sharper. A camera with the Wi-Fi function is a MUST for me because when i travel. I prefer to capture everything using my camera because it takes higher quality images than my phone. And when i want to post it on Instagram, i can just send it to my phone directly (no internet connection is required, the Wi-Fi for Camera to Phone works like "Bluetooth") instead of transferring to my laptop and uploading online (so troublesome!). Gone are the days i take a picture with my camera and then take out my phone to take a picture to Instagram.

    The Sony a5000 takes super awesome pictures! I love how it automatically blurs backgrounds (this function can also be adjusted/disabled). It is really easy to use too! Plus, like a DSLR, you can change the lens.

    THE BEST THING ABOUT IT?


    It's totally a Selfie Camera. I can't remember the last time i owned a camera without a flip screen. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR SOMEONE LIKE ME! Tip: Use the Soft Skin Effect which automatically smoothen wrinkles and dullness if you want to look prettier. I like that the effect doesn't make you look "too fake" either and it is still sharp. There are some cameras with beauty mode which makes you glow so much it makes you look too doll-like and fake. There's one really popular selfie camera a lot of bloggers use and when i see their pictures i just know they used that camera cus of the "over glow".

  • 04/03/14--23:00: Week #16
  • I feel so shitty today. I have been feeling nauseated since yesterday. Threw up just a minute ago. I'm not sure if I ate something wrong or if it's the pregnancy morning sickness? Didn't have morning sickness the whole time I was preggers so I don't know if it can suddenly happen in Week 16? Or did I eat something wrong...? Man I feel so so so crappy. Yesterday I ate lunch a little later than usual and when I felt hungry, I felt like puking. Felt better instantly after having a bowl of hot soup and rice. Then came dinner, I had baked rice and I'm not sure if it's the cheese or what but right after I felt like puking. :(


    I also did mention how my energy went up when I reached Week 12 right? It looks like it went down this week! I feel tired by 6pm now and I have struggle to keep myself awake till 10pm before going to bed so I won't mess my body clock. 

    This week I also found out the gender! A lot of people find out a lil later but my baby was in a good position so yay! 

    So happy to hear the news because I've always wanted to buy baby clothes and I can start now. Woohoo!

  • 04/06/14--21:34: My Baby's Gender + Week #17

  • I'm having a boy! 

    A lot of my friends wondered if I felt sad about it since I mentioned I wanted a girl last time. Before pregnancy and before everything felt so real, I can easily say "I want a girl!" but when everything happens and you really have a baby in you, you won't even care! Well for me la...cus I didn't really care anymore after Week 10.  After weeks into the pregnancy, whatever gender my baby was didn't matter. As long as I give birth to a healthy baby, boy or girl also can! 

    The doctor went through my blood test results and the oscar results. Around Week 14, your ob/gyn will ask you to do several tests to see if your baby is at risk for down syndrome or anything.  I was so happy everything is going well. I'm healthy and so is my baby! Made me really relieved and happy because before the appointment I was worried as hell! I asked my mother a million questions and I was so so paranoid. Some days my tummy was so huge and some days it just looked normal...a lil too small for a pregnant lady. It was really weird and made me do so much reading on belly bumps. I couldn't feel the baby's movement yet so I couldn't stop wondering if my baby was alive and doing well in me. Ok yeah, I said it!! I was really REALLY worried but didn't want to talk about it on my blog. All that worrying made me realise how much I love this baby already and how much I wanted him/her to be safe and sound.

    When the doctor did a scan and asked "do you see what is in between your baby's legs?", I smiled and I nearly burst into tears. I was really really happy, the feeling was overwhelming. I realised whatever gender my baby was, id react the same. I really have this unexplained happiness and love for this baby in me already. :') can't wait to meet you baby boy!

    Oh yay! The shitty feeling is GONE. The nausea lasted 2 days and it only happens if I eat too late. I usually have breakfast at 10am, lunch at 1pm and dinner at 7pm. If I miss any meal or eat 2 hours later, that 2 hours will feel like hell cus I'd keep wanting to vomit. Throughout the day I snack too so I won't feel hungry. I usually have a small box of honey stars or Koko Krunch with me to munch on. 

    I've been feeling REALLY lethargic lately :( I miss waking up fresh and energetic because this few days I wake up and all I wanna do is go back to sleep. I cannot stop yawning the entire day and because I'm so tired I have no mood to do anything and when I have to do something I get a little cranky. Come back, Energy!!!! COME BACK!!!!

    Lately I've been drinking a lot of Apple Juice, Guess that's this week's craving!

    Oh and I should never ever try to curb a craving. I suck at it. Especially during this pregnancy period. For example, today I craved for cup noodles but it's unhealthy and I just had it the day before so I didn't want to have it again for brunch today. Had brunch cus I woke up late. So I chose to eat healthier - a cup of milo, an apple, a bowl of grapes, mango, 4 slices of raisin bread and a bowl of mushroom soup with a lot of mushrooms. Now that should fill me up right??

    WELL IT DID! But...when I crave something, if I don't have it, even if I'm full after eating a full meal THERE'S STILL SPACE FOR IT. I was really full but my mind just couldn't stop thinking of my tom yum cup noodles. So yes, I had it. Now that's A LOT for lunch. Haha. Pffftt.

  • 04/06/14--23:35: I am only Human
  • It's been 5 weeks since i revealed the BIG news on my pregnancy and i'm still receiving mean comments. Well i try my best to quickly delete it so it won't affect my mood but well, i'm only human and sometimes when i read it, it does get to me.


    I never said i was a good role model for young girls and even though i really wish i could be, the decisions i make in my life show otherwise lah right? There are plenty of bloggers out there who lead more wholesome lives and are "better" bloggers than i am. I won't deny i do hope to be more like them...and do hope my child grows up to be like that. When my child is born, i want to spend as much time as i can with my child. I don't want my child to be neglected the way i was. Even if i have to work, i will spend time at the end of the day talking to my child and asking how his day went.

    Since i was like 11...i was on my own. I never spent time with my family and always did things the way i wanted to. I didn't even feel like i had a family. That's why i grew up having good friends who are so important to me they feel more important than my own family. Nobody really cared about me. My mother was too busy working to provide for the both of us. My dad left to god knows where. I never really got scolded for anything! Not even bad academic results. I could get F9s for every subject and no one would say anything. Thank god i was wise to not do that lah....hahaha. And am also thankful that despite the freedom i managed to stay in an express course and passed my subjects. I really had the freedom to do ANYTHING. Not many kids i knew had such freedom! I could even go out on my own till late and nobody would scold me or care. I could stay over at a friend's place and need not inform anyone. Nobody actually taught me what was right and wrong. I don't think my mom knew much about what was happening in my life because she didn't even talk to me....until the day i landed myself in the hospital after doing something stupid. That day brought us so much closer. So in my life, i learnt most things on my own which also might explain the many choices i made. I won't say everyone who had a childhood like mine would end up like me, some may still be goody two shoes. Am i wrong to think it's a pretty rare case though? Because i know a few friends who had a rough childhood and they are so similar to me.

    I really don't blame my parents for who i am today though. Can i blame them, really? It's not like they intentionally wanted their daughter to be like that also. My mother was struggling to make ends meet. She was working 2 jobs. It was certainly not easy for her, how to blame her? I'd be heartless to do so. How to call her a bad mother? She was facing SO much stress! I appreciate everything she has done and love her so much and even though i wished she cared more when i was younger, hey, she was the one who made me become so independent and the one who helped me achieve my dreams of setting Ohsofickle up.

    What i can do is to learn to be there for my child in future. I don't want my child to ever be in the same environment as i was brought up in so i will not let that happen. I want to always have a close relationship with my child. I will be his best friend, i will tell him i love him everyday.

    As one grows older, you do automatically know some things were clearly wrong, like drugs and theft and i could have done those if i wanted to but i'm glad i didn't do it. I could've been a lot worse leh? Since no one would actually stop me from doing all that. I remember a few occasions where some friends would go out to steal clothes and i NEVER DID IT. I tagged along and watched them do it but because of this fear of the police and upsetting my mother if i got caught.

    Even though i have made some bad choices in my life and made some mistakes, i do learn from it and i believe i would give better advices to people now as compared to in the past. Throughout the years of making mistakes, i have learnt to become a better person. I am definitely a better person than i was in the past. No, still not perfect but better than before and i dare say it because man...life has taught me SO MUCH. I may have had quite a number of boyfriends but i do not regret being in any of the relationships. In my first relationship, i learnt that one should not be a "dog" to their bf. If your bf treats you like shit, leave him, you deserve much better. In my second relationship i had my first "big regret" and that made me start to be more sensitive and think before doing anything because i realized what an impulsive person i was. In my third, because i was older than him, i was so dominant. I was so dominant i was like a bully. When he didn't listen to me, i'd go mad. I never gave in. It was his turn to be "dog" and yes, after we broke up i realized relationships have to be "fair" and you should treat your bf the way you want to be treated. Then my forth, which was the longest and the one i learnt the most from. I became much more patient, learnt to give my bf a lot of space, learnt that trust is so important....etc. He was one who really balanced me because like i mentioned above, no one has ever scolded me and i never really listened to anyone. So with that ex bf, i really had a balance and i learnt to listen. After him i also i realized i need a bf who is at least 4 years older than i am because i want someone to "control" me, someone to listen to....How weird right? Haha.

    Today, i'm so much more understanding and tolerant and when i think about it, if i was this way with my ex, i'm sure we'd last a loooong time. Haha. I'm so much happier and contented now. Even though my life doesn't look awesome to some people, i love life and i am truly happy! I try to be the best girlfriend i can be. If not for my past relationships, i wouldn't be like that at all so my current boyfriend...i think he is lucky. Well, luckier than the past bfs i had for sure. Haha. Everyday i smile and look at life so much more positively than before. It is sad some people start condemning me because of the choice i made but yeah, that's the world. I do know i ain't a devil and i am not a bad person. I do not have a black heart and i am not evil. I am no angel but i know i'm not a bad person otherwise how do i have so many good friends around me who love me so much? I have so many good friends who have been friends with me for YEARS. If i was a really bad person, they would've left me LONG ago. I feel that when some people are young, some people make huge mistakes but as they grow older, they'll become better people! I don't think anyone really grows up to become worse?? Well unless they become famous or something then ya things might change and that's another story lah. Some people will still condemn me but this is part of my story.

    If you make a mistake, the best you can do is admit it and realize what you did wrong and learn from it. Who can you blame at the end of the day, really? Everyone leads their lives differently and yes, my life is so different from so many people that some people just cannot accept it but i still love my life. Even if i don't have a very perfect life, i am so glad i am happy leading this life! :)
