The Sunday Currently V42

What time do you usually wake up? What is the first thing you do when you wake up? First thought?

Since I am working from home, for the last 2 months I have been waking up between 6:30-6:45. The first thing I normally do is go to the washroom and do my thing, then I’ll have a glass of water. I’ll start to think what to have for breakfast and lunch? Yeah, pretty much what other people do. Nothing special. hehehehehe

Now that I’m working from home and 99% of my time is spent entirely at home, I’m hoping that my entry to my sunday currently will be slightly different.

Reading
I’ve been really bad with reading. I have few books in my kindle but I only read few chapters of them. In another note I’ve been pushing myself to read my bible, at least one chapter a day. 🙂 Yay for that!

Writing
My 42nd entry! I can’t believe I reach this far.

Listening
I’ve been listening to a lot of Korean songs lately, especially the Hospital Playlist ost. Most of the time I’m on spotify and I have these playlist ready for me while working:

Thinking
When can we go back home? When can we go back to office? When will these things end? What will be the “new normal” looks like when we are “fully” allowed to go out and enjoy the “outside” world?

Smelling
Coconut milk. I’m cooking monggo for lunch and I decided to add coconut milk for a better taste. 🙂

Wishing
I’m home.

Wearing
I’m still in my jammies.

Loving
The weather today is really nice compared to yesterday. Although I know later in the afternoon it will be hot, but I can’t complain since I have laundry that needs mr sunshine.

Needing
To clean our room. Shower. Wash my shoes. Go out and have a short walk.

Wanting
To finish the books I have downloaded. I wanted to watch a new Kdrama but I know which one to start with. I wanted to go out for a walk but too lazy to do. I want to have a cup of hot chocolate or dark coffee.

Feeling
Accomplished. I was able to post one blog yesterday. Today, I woke up early and was able tp finish most of my chores in the kitchen.

Random Questions I Asked Myself

FM radio. A cup of teh-c siew dai. A chat box. Drizzling rain. A chaotic mind.

For the last few weeks I’ve been thinking of writing. But I don’t have a concrete idea, a topic. All I have is an empty screen. While browsing the net, I stumbled a q&a video, and the first question was “how are you?”. That question stuck on my head. Those 3 words are very powerful, especially during these times. I started to question myself, when was the last time I ask someone how are they? When was the last time I ask myself, how am I?

I’ve been in constant communication with my family back home, and yesterday was the last time I asked my brother how are they and our mother. I had a short catch up sesh with my sister in law yesterday also.

I cannot remember when was the last time I check on myself, to be honest. And it seems I don’t have the right questions to ask myself either. I don’t know if I’m making sense right now.

The weather and music are making me emotional, so I decided to google… “questions to ask yourself”. And voila! I found a lot… hahahaha… I randomly select the questions that I want to ask myself, let’s see how will it go.

  1. How are you?

Honestly? I don’t know. Does it make sense? Kidding. I’m good. Although physically I don’t feel good. Working from home for the last 2 months, makes me lazy. Too lazy to go out for a walk or a run. Too lazy to do simple exercise. All I want to do is lay around the corner or sleep during the weekends.

2. What am I grateful for today?

I am grateful that I am given the chance to be alive today. That I have a husband who understand my mood swings. I am grateful that I have food on our table. That our families back home are all good.

3. Who am I checking in on, or connecting with, today?

My brother, I just sent him a random message. My younger cousins and my niece.

4. Have I done anything lately worth remembering?

I wanted to believe that I have. I really hope I have.

5. Have I made someone smile today?

Yes. I always made it a point to smile at someone. To smile to random strangers. And today is not an exception. While I was doing my grocery, I smiled to random strangers and great them “good morning”. How did I know that I made them smile when we are all wearing a mask? I just know. I can see it from their eyes and I can feel it. 😉

What did I feel after answering those 5 random questions? I felt happy. That’s for sure.

In today’s technology it is so easy for us to communicate, but it is very rare that someone genuinely ask how are you. Be that someone. Ask random family members and friends how are they. It will put a smile on their faces and makes their hearts do a little dance.

Photo Dump: Sembawang Hot Spring Park

After many failed attempts of visiting the park, we finally set foot on the newly renovated Sembawang Hot Spring Park.

For some strange reasons during weekends I always woke up early, earlier than weekdays! Since today we don’t have other plans, I told the husband we should visit the park since it’s only walking distance away from our place.

When we reached the place it was already crowded, although it was only around 8am, guess the uncles and aunties woke up early also. 🙂 The foot bath was already crowded, we never had the chance to sit down and experience it, so we settled in soaking our foot on the pale.

Ma! I never thought it was that hot!!! hahahaha… Nevertheless, we had a good time while we were there. 🙂

For more information about the park, you may visit the National Parks page.
