EXPLORATION

This is me missing Singapore and holidays.
I have a lot of things to say about school and IB, but this is not the time and place for that.

Taken in the hot, humid Singapore, typing now in the cool, humid-er Hong Kong. Two countries I call home, and both I in fact have seen very little of. I am very aware that three of all the photos above are of food, and if that isn't the best depiction of Chinese New Year I don't know what is.

I've come to a realisation that everything, and I mean everything, is an exploration. Numbers are as indefinite as what I'm going to have for breakfast tomorrow. Numbers are infinite, tomorrow's breakfast depends on circumstances of exploration.

Exploration One- I've been exploring my fair share of restaurants recently, I even found Hong Kong's version of Nandos, but that for another time (seriously though, my post will be worth waiting for).

Exploration Two- My IB theatre experience. This is something we had to do for class, and despite my dislike for school and the like, I learnt things (wow shocker) and I can genuinely say that it has helped me as a human being. My confidence has grown significantly and I am actually able to approach people and introduce myself. Still working on my ability to hold a conversation though.

Exploration Three- My fitness levels. I go to the gym fairly regularly, and I realised that I wasn't feeling satisfied afterwards. I've realised that, although during my workout I was feeling tired, I was not pushing to my limit, which resulted in me not working as hard as I had thought and feeling like I hadn't done anything afterwards. The conclusion here is- don't work till it hurts, work till it BURNS.

Maybe

Maybe sinking down
To the earth's core
And through
A body will shrivel
Melt
At the touch of the heat
A body cannot go through

The mere connection of irises 
Incinerates

Maybe a body
Wants to be incinerated
Because maybe
Death is what makes a body feel alive

EXTREMELY CLOSE

I have to admit that my outfit was not as on point as I wanted it to be on this day. My floral pants threw it off a bit, but I'm just going with it.
I do really like this cape though. Mom has been really into capes recently because of all the capes that the girl in My Love From The Stars wore (great show by the way, Kim Soo Hyun deserves a honoured mention).

The title of this post is dedicated to the book I just finished reading, "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" by Jonathan Safran Foer. I won't go into an in depth review about it right now, but I will give my brief opinion.

It's confusing at times because I don't know who's point of view the writing is from. It can get boring , but there are also some very worthy and thought provoking bits that I think make the boring bits okay. This book is less about the actual storyline, but the lessons from the storyline.
The ending could have been better, it was quite underwhelming.
I apologise if this made no sense to you. It makes sense in my head, which may not necessarily translate to words.
