It's even harder to picture that you're not here next to me

I'm at a payphone trying to call home, all of my change I spent on you.
Where have the times gone, baby it's all wrong, where are the plans we made for two? 

Tuesday, Pique-Nique @ J-cube,  I travelled from the east to west, and rewarded my efforts with my darling and this lovely Norwegian Benedict. I am officially sold.

ps. Say hi to Mr Penguin! He's too shy ;)

Friday, Oakham Market @ Ann Siang Hill, a trip to my favourite vintage and snap-em-up thrift store with the weird piratey indie songs playing on a crazy loop. Bought the blush-coloured skirt (for only $16.95, yay!) and say hi to my rainbow patch bag!

Saturday, Nihon Mura @ Cathay Cineplex, our favourite buffet with loads and loads of sashimi and the boy's favourite sushi. Ate, walked around, went to the toilet, chatted, played games, chatted even more, round two, rinse and repeat.

Fast fact: Nihon Mura means Japanese Village (in Japanese, of course).

Sunday, East Coast Food Village @ East Coast Park,our favourite kind of food with the semi-perfect weather! Oyster omellete, Teh Tarik (pulled tea), Sambal stingray, glazed BBQ chicken wings and sugarcane juice. Okay my mouth is watering now.

So this is nearly my whole week in pictures, with laughter and tears, anger and fears. I really wish I could photograph my entire life, action by action, frame by frame, so that when I look back someday when my memory is starting to fail me, they will remind me of who and how I used to be, how young and carefree life and all of us were.

But thank you for being my favourite person to hang out with, the only one who makes me smile when I am about to cry, who hates to see me feel sad or disappointed. Please know how much I love you. I really do. Thank you for all the photographs but I know your memory is way better than mine, so where photographs and my camera fail, please tell me how it used to be and how beautiful the days we spent together were.

If happy ever after did exist
I would still be holding you like this
