I thought I'd start this post with a few quotes which I really appreciate. Sometimes life gets so overwhelming that it's easy not to see the small beautiful things that are around us. And sometimes when life gets tough it's hard to see anything but the situation that you are in. Believe it or not, everyone goes through difficult seasons in their lives, but the defining difference is how different people respond to the tough times.
HAHA OMG I AM SUPER PHILOSOPHICAL IN THE MORNING! IT'S CREEPY RIGHT?! GAHAHAAA, I think lack of sleep too much already that's why a bit siao. So Anyway, yeah, just thought I'd give a little encouragement to anyone who is facing tough times right now. There's quote I always gave my trainees back in the army "Tough times don't last, tough men do!".
So anyway, as you guys know I'm aussie and at some point of time, I do want to head back and lepak. I was actually supposed to go back this June for my uni studies, but I deferred it for the film. But this coming Feb, I'll probably head back. Therein lies the problem, I'm really afraid of losing momentum I got from all the hard work I put in filming. It's not easy to come so far, to achieve my goals, and then leave everything behind to go for my studies.
I mean, I really love Aussie land. The blue skies, the cool weather, my FISH AND CHIPS, PIES, PASTA, SO MANY SO MANY AUSSIE FOOD GAHHHHH!!! I love the relaxing day to day living, heading to the park, having quiet walks, snuggling up next to the heater.. I love the old ladies who will walk up to you and ask about your day, your life, and be honestly interested in having a conversation with you.. I miss my cute nephews and nieces, going around wine and cheese tasting with my cousins..
BUTTT I THINK I LIKE SINGAPORE A BIT MORE NOW THAN LAST TIME LEH!! HAHAHAHA. Singapore also quite shiok la I guess..Gosh I think I will die without Indian food. Like my body will crave it so much that it will explode from the inside! I think I will miss acting so much, and the opportunities that I will get here.. But I think the thing I will miss the most is probably my mates here..
