As of today, it’s 1 day shy of 3 weeks since I’ve been here with T. I have been enjoying every moment and savouring our time together – long-distance relationships are hard and I always forget how much I missed being together until whenever we are physically together.

When T is out at work, I try to do the household chores (make the bed, laundry, dishes, walk Max, collect mail, cook and some serious spring cleaning of closets/rooms), come online to read blogs, chat with my friends, email my family, then potter around the house doing random things. I look forward to the evenings when T gets home from work. We usually get a little time together at dinner then he goes off to work on his game. I sit and read or do more surfing of the internet while he and Max snuggle up on the couch to code. Other than visiting his family the last 2 weekends, I get to go out once or twice a week like to the supermarket or follow T to run errands. It definitely is a far cry from what I’m normally up to  but this to me (for now at least), is domestic bliss.

Yesterday, he rushed home from work in the afternoon to get me so that we could go get his vision corrected. He could drive there but needed me to drive him home after surgery. I am “proud” to say that his Corvette only stalled like 10 freaking times under my driving *bleagh* I’m so terrible at driving manual transmission cars – why do they even have them anymore?!?! The clutch is there to help you change gears but they have found a better way of doing that – it’s called AUTOMATIC transmission… HELLO?

Anyway, this was what I wore yesterday:

Top: Black sleeveless KISS Hello Kitty t-shirt from FOREVER21

Outerwear: Black 3/4 sleeved babydoll cardigan from ESPRIT

Accessories: Set of 4 bangles from PRIMARK; Neon Green teardrop thread earrings from FOREVER21

Bottom: Lilac polka dotted jeans from OLD NAVY

Footwear: Sparkly purple patent leather ballet flats from STEVE MADDEN

I love the colour of my brand new OLD NAVY jeans which I got for a steal at just over USD12 with FREE SHIPPING. I’m wearing a US14 Petite and they are still kinda long (see how they bunch up at my ankles) – this happens ALL THE TIME. I’m just about 5′ tall. Anyhoos, I don’t love the fact that they are “super skinnies”. I think my legs are too chunky and my calves are HUGE – they are tighter at my calves than anywhere else. Other than that, such a cute lilac right? And my shoes were sparkling in the sunlight yesterday!

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.

  1. Those trousers are so cute! I really admire you for managing a long distance relationship. Paul and I really struggle to even spend a night apart!

    • They are right?!?! The colour and the polka dots!! If it weren’t for the fact that they were “super skinnies” and so tight around my calves, I would be like BUY 10 MORE IN EVERY COLOUR!

      Yeah long distance is hard. If I had my way, I would love to go to bed every night with this one person forever.

  2. Your legs look great! I don’t know what you’re talking about. The trousers don’t look too tight and the whole outfit is so cute!

    Congrats to T for having this surgery. I did it two years ago and I couldn’t be happier about it!
