emma; only girl in the world

Hello, weekend. Hello, new friends.

I can't believe it's finally the weekend but also, it's such a long time coming, I don't want this weekend to ever end. It doesn't help that I feel like crap. I woke up on Monday morning feeling horrific but had to fly to Yangon for work so it's been downhill ever since. 

I'm glad I was only there for 2 days and was able to see a doctor on Wednesday. Also, when they tell you to drink medicines after a meal, they apparently mean it. I never took it seriously and ended up puking all the medicines on an empty stomach. Oh well, now I know better.

12 of 12: When I once again loosely define the 12th in Yangon

So by now, you've seen a pattern of me ignoring entirely the concept of this meme and instead letting it loosely define how I want to update. And this month, I happen to be in Yangon, Myanmar for the 12th of the month.

Yangon is my sort of new assignment for work and I'll be traveling to this place weekly. I haven't really been here before so I wasn't sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. Here's to more pleasant surprises in the weeks to come.

WOW. Just wow. I'm shocked I'm still standing at the end of June because this month was INSANE. From my moving houses to kick off the month, to friends giving birth to an adorable baby girl, to friends getting married in India, to friends coming over for an exhibition, to siblings getting married again (same wife, new ceremony) which means ceremony in Bali, sangeet (so much dancing) in Singapore and that also means FAMILY coming over -- like everyone. 

Oh and I'm still working (though this was the first month in forever where I didn't have to travel to Jakarta so much) and we had this insane presentation to our CEO and it was my first time to present to him and it's just WHAAAAAT.

But also, one half of 2017 is over. What have I done with my life? Not much, but I'm just glad I'm alive after June. That was crazy.

12 of 12: When I'm blatantly using this meme for any date but the 12th because Mumbai

Clearly, I'm not even bothering to get the dates right this time. It just so happens I kind of had a trip planned for the sort of middle of the month so I took the opportunity. It would have been a waste to not share with you my first time/trip in Mumbai so why not?

There are absolutely no photos from the 12th here. It's an absolute lie/cheat. I've resorted to complete and absolute cheating now.

Currently: May 2017

May went by like the blink of an eye. I was able to get out to Ho Chi Minh but I was also able to stay in Singapore a bit more (no thanks to my ear glue aka otitis media). I also saw friends (from my old job) and hung out with my siblings and just tried to make the most of the month that I Really didn't feel that much. Collapse )

12 of 12: When I stretched the meaning of the 12th to the entire weekend in Ho Chi Minh

because it's now my monthly ritual to cheat on this, here goes my 2 days after the 12th where I went to visit my friend, Sayaka in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. IT's a really quick plane ride from Singapore and yet I've only visited her once since she left Singapore. So this would be my second trip to visit her after 1 year. Pretty sad but I was pretty glad to see her and Rokas and hang out for the weekend.

But because I'm feeling like I still need some 12th, I took half the photos on the actual day of the 12th which was a Friday when I had to run some health errands and then work (which you don't see) and then off to the airport in the evening. Good times.
