that time I dressed up for company dinner

Given my history being in the organization for almost 6 years, I have never felt the need to attend any sort of company-organized dinner. Thought they are too formal and not in my books - and specifically, my introvert side would not approve of the idea😔

But then, this year, suddenly there was an email on a Gala dinner organized by our own division. 

Suddenly, people got to talking.

"Eh, quite nice lah the theme. When else can we go?? Let's gooo"

Wailed one of the girls in my department. I buat-buat pekak, continued playing dumb.

I knew they KNEW I'm not interested to go.

And then..there were more and more talks on "jom lah when elseee" "there's no one representing our department, how rude is that" etc. You see, we have very few girls in the department - and when almost all of the girls were talking about it, I was slowly brainwashed into thinking hey, it's not that bad of an idea!

When else, right?

So off we went to the Gala dinner.

So how was your 2017?

Me?

A lot of things happened last year, well, one of it was me getting another baby out of my uterus XD Possibly the biggest thing that happened last year! (BET YOU'RE ALREADY BORED OF THIS LOL)

I've read about 2017 reflections a lot on my social media feed, and I was thinking about doing the same..just NOT on social media. On my blog instead, cause I've been neglecting my first baby for far too long.

Compared to 2016, I think 2017 was..tough. I had to learn a lot of new things; things that are so alien to me and I could feel my positive energy was slowly draining out. Be it personal life, career, etc - things were just a lot harder, despite turning 30s.

My go-to eye palette

My go to eye palette at the mo? Definitely this.

But in all honesty, the major reason I bought is because of the gorgeous packaging haha #materialistic

Okay. Let’s be real – I already have a few eye mini eye palettes so practically, I didn’t even need a new, bigger one. The Benefit mini nude eye palette was my go-to, but the texture was stiff for me and while I lovee every single shade in that mini size; application, on the other hand is horrible.

Until I discovered this Tartelette in Bloom.


Everything else is a failure #quotingTaylorSwiftlol

Breastfeeding : The Last Part

Can't believe that my last post on this, Part 2, was more than a year ago and I forgot to blog about this when Rafiy was born!

And now it has become the last part cause..I've stopped breastfeeding T.T

So maybe I should write this down before I forget. (and because friends have been asking me this, since I started watching what I eat recently, I've been getting questions like "how do you not eat rice? Won't it make your milk supply drop?" so this is the answer)

Basically if you refer to Part 2, it summarized everything I've experienced for Rafiy. Except that for Rayyan, despite the challenges, I managed to continue breastfeeding him until he was one year old.

But for Rafiy..the challenges are on WHOLE new level.

Peaked

This time last year, I was over the moon.

Reached a milestone in my career and felt so grateful that my hard work in the past years felt…justified? (I hope this is the correct word to describe, if not I’m screwed cause my officemates read this blog T.T)

This year, I felt a certain familiar feeling crept up. Performance review was coming up and as I looked through my documents and reports, I realized this fact.

I peaked. Last year, I peaked. So this year, I made a vow to continue the momentum – at least to get something tangible in numbers (LOL how engineer-y) that I’d be able to look at and feel proud of.


But it was difficult, too.

Let me tell you a story.
