Happy New Year!
Been clearing off the work from 2016 and was busy buying air tickets for my parents when the clock struck 12am.
Taking Passport Photo at 3am
As I was finishing up my video edit, I went to wash my face, only to slab on makeup at 3am.
My studio lights were set up for a previous shoot and I had received the letter reminding me that my passport would be expiring soon. So I needed a new passport photo, but I needed to clear the lights later in the day, in preparation for my dad’s birthday dinner gathering.
So I was pretty much left without an alternative!
Breakfast at IKEA
Having barely four hours of sleep, I woke up to join my parents and brother for a trip to IKEA Tampines, and that’s why I saw this dollhouse! Can’t express how much I love miniature furniture, especially those with functioning doors. But they were about $30?
So I took a picture and moved on.
Assembling a vanity table
Eventually I bought a vanity table, which my brother also helped me to assemble later that day. I like simple furniture and with this, I can keep my beauty products, and it can double up as my laptop desk. Extremely useful and versatile, especially if we have guests over!
Dad’s Birthday Celebration – Pot Luck Dinner!
Night came, and we had pot luck dinner, where everyone bought their own favourite food or cravings. It was a great alternative to cooking at home, because we would think not just about what we want, but also what others want. I think that’s what family gatherings should be about, not a bunch of people sitting around waiting to be fed while one person does all the hard work.
Back to Work
As the gathering ends, I was back at my desk editing video for an former classmate’s wedding banquet. Fruitful and constructive day!
