"THERE IS NO WAY TO HAPPINESS. HAPPINESS IS THE WAY.." - #Buddha

There is no path to happiness: happiness is the path. ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
This post about the "25 Life Lessons to Learn from Buddha" had been shared a lot on Facebook for the past few days (beside that black/blue or white/gold dress) and I do find them very true and work as a great reminder for this beginning of a year, a new journey! ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
Have a good weekend everyone!

Ended the night with something sweet and sour. #strawberrycheesecake x #ferrerorocher x #lemonade

It feels good to start adjusting back to routines again. Can't believe uni is starting so soon. #icecream

As Jawaharlal Nehru said: "We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open." ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And as much as I enjoyed walking down that same path everyday, a new adventure is just as enjoyable.

First thing first, have brunch! Reunited with the Indo babes @hannykurniawan @keziahsaditya over these yummy foods at The Auction Rooms.
What would Melbourne means without these people, foods and coffee?

But all those that sparkles are not gold. They are just those fancy chandeliers in the bare concrete box.

Personally recommended by @makanmana to try this Bagan Mie. It was indeed good. Simple and humble appearance but taste wise was great and didn't hurt the wallet either.

Trying out the new café joint in town before leaving so soon.

Ambiance wise was great. Love the nakedness and rawness of the place (exposed columns and trusses) and those chandeliers

Food wise, it was okay. (Or maybe, I have yet hit the right choices for the menus) but Oh, well.. It is a new restaurant. There are still rooms for improvement always.

One of the last meals I had before bidding this country a goodbye! It's undeniable that these past month and a half had been more enjoyable than ever! Getting to try many new foods, discovering new places and to be honest get to see more places than during my study here. (That whole secondary school time, imagine) and of course reuniting and get to meet all the great people! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀
And this internship has been way way way better than I had ever imagined, (comparing to what people experienced that I read from the Internet!) so for that, thank you all of you for making me feel so good and happy!

Now I am getting ready to fly back to motherland for my 团圆饭!and to collect all my 红包!💷 ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #missyousingapore

Here's to the last (at least, for now..) dinner with the colleagues at our company-owned restaurant. I'm actually sad that this whole internship ended so quickly... blame it to all the people here. ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ #dinnerwiththecolleague

Back here to the Lokal again! You know the reason why. And it's funny yet interesting that you even spot more new things from places you have visited before, just like this beautiful painting on this wall!
Do you notice that Mr. Pretzel has a letter "G" on his long T-shirt?

Had a short and quick catch up with @inezsiantar @laksmideweh over these sweet and savoury treats and also @dearlala over the shiok-maki! (It was indeed a very shiok meet-up despite being tired after work)

Last week of work already! (Am more worried with uni starting so soon!) #pscafeparagon

gilbertganda #SLGXVALENTINO because giveaway by @shoplondongirl is always one to look forward to, and as Cinderella is a proof that good shoes bring you to good places, I wish that I could give these to my sister for her birthday which is coming so soon and I have yet save enough money to buy anything, so perhaps a pair of her dream rockstud (size 38) would be a perfect gift? (God knows how much I love my sisters!) #crossingtoes #crossingfingers #SLGfairygodmother #shegivesyoucinderellamoment 2w

Definitely a great way to start the day before spending the rest of the day in the office (yes, on the weekend..) ⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #valentinesbrunch

gilbertganda #CONCUBINE X #CHANEL X #SMARTPHONE

In the midst of watching the Chinese Series about Empress Wu 武则天,I was wondering why do people in the past wanted to get married into the palace even as a concubine where tough competitions happened and people will always set each other harm just for the sake of power and the love of the Emperor (note that there are 2000 concubines at the same time, so he could not notice you at all)

But when I saw this, it felt like everything would make more sense if there were Chanel or Smartphones to buy with the wealth back then... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
