Tune-in: Playlist of the Moment #12

Leave a comment

Today is a pretty good day. I feel loved and I’ll make an extra effort to stop this self-indulging sulking. I’m not exactly sure why I’ve been so moody or mopey but people around me are taking time to talk to me, cheer me up, buy little gifts – when I haven’t done anything to deserve it.

Yesterday 10 of my colleagues bought a boxful of gifts to surprise me, including: Berocca effervescent tablets, Smencils gourmet scented pencils (in Black Cherry), a Toadstool mushroom sharpener cum eraser from Accessorize, Sally Hansen No More Mistakes Manicure Clean-up Pen, a black & pink polka dotted coin purse from Accessorize (with S$1 inside for me to buy fruit from the vending machine), Bourjois So Laque! Ultra Shine nail polish (in Fuschia hype), Bourjois Fan effect brush nail polish in a blackish green, pick n mix bags of worms and gummy candies and also 21st Century Chewy Vitamin C!

Today Natalie bought me my favourite breakfast snacks (fried carrot cake & prawn fritters) from Pick&Bite in Marina Square, Luanne offered to pay for a pedicure (I politely declined because I was wearing the wrong shoes) and Pearlyn bought me yoghurt as well as chocolate truffle cake! 

My friends are so awesome and patient even though I’ve been so quiet and moody lately. It’s moments like these where you feel that maybe life isn’t that bad. I meet awesome people everywhere I go and I’m surrounded by people who genuinely care. People do things for me without asking and just because they want to. It’s weird to feel special but I like it.

I dedicate today’s playlist to lovely people:

1. November ’91 – Padres

2. Don’t Cry – Naked

3. Everything In Its Right Place – Radiohead

4. Water – Padres

5. Diana – The Misfits

6. Kiss In The Dark – Padres

7. This Nite – Samurai Loud

8. Crimson Ghost – The Misfits

9. Permanent Daylight (live) – Radiohead

10. Fake Plastic Trees – Radiohead

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
