Sometimes, the beginning of a new day is all you need to have a fresh start. Over the last few days in Singapore, I had been feeling extremely lethargic and often felt like I was walking through quicksand when I was sightseeing around the city. Even working out at the gym or sleeping earlier and longer didn't seem to help. In part, this might have been due to some muscle soreness after I had gone biking for two hours on a previous day or from attempting to do chin-ups (I can do two and a half-- I think). However, this morning I was able to not only wake up at 6:30 am, but also to go for a four km run before the day's heat had fully begun. In addition, I decided to go for something different today and shoot these photos inside my aunt's flat since there was such good lighting.
While I'm used to living in a large house, it's kinda nice to live in a smaller space with various family members always in close proximity (I'm sure this feeling would only last for so long before I am driven crazy by lack of privacy). I've gotten very used to navigating my way around the area in which my aunt and grandmother live, as well as taking transit to wherever I like. Today, I will be going to Orchard Road for the third time since I've been in the city of my birth-- let's keep our fingers crossed that I won't buy too much!
For my shopping outfit, I decided to wear my H&M skirt and this new crop top from Zara that I recently bought. Zara may be one of my favourite stores but I simply can't afford the clothing until they have their seasonal sales. When those hit, you can be sure that I'm watching over every store like a hungry vulture for new deals. I feel like the neon-green-and-gold necklace goes well with the bright pink-- what do you think?

While I am greatly enjoying my vacation thus far, I still miss my friends back in Vancouver very much-- it's so hard to be away from people with whom you usually spend so much time. Luckily one friend is presently in Hong Kong and therefore is in the same time zone with me (which means we can snapchat and whatsapp each other with ease). To some of my closer friends back in Canada, I just sent a bunch of postcards that will hopefully reach their mailboxes safely. Sometimes snail mail is so much more fun than the digital stuff. Lastly, the boyfriend just left for Hong Kong and so I'll be seeing him in Singapore in one week's time-- I can't wait!!!
What are you looking forward to doing this summer?
