I like being alone sometimes.
At a quiet place, surroundings serene, void, with breathless stale air.

Then I can listen to my

Heart beating

At least, then, I feel more human than I already am.

Holland, Amsterdam

It has been awhile since i travelled by SQ, and it didn't disappoint me one bit! Excellent service, good food, great in-flight purchases and entertainment. Too bad i don't have my Krisflyer card anymore to clock flying miles.

Landing at Amsterdam wasn't new to me. It was my second visit albeit the first being quite some time ago. What to expect? Coffeeshop selling weed, windmills, dutch cheese, raw herring etc. 

 I'd always thought Belgium sold the best waffles. But NOOOO Amsterdam just had to produce waffles of equal or even better quality. I tried some mini pancakes in choc sauce and raspberries too!
 They don't come cheap but like i always say... When you travel, don't save and eat everything!
Holland was more than just scenic; windmills from a faraway distance together with cotton candy clouds and clear streams made everything so resplendent! The pictures we snapped took on a dreamlike quality and the cousins were just saying how they look like windows desktop wallpapers.
 Bought some dutch cheese and stroop caramelised waffles! yummy yummy and more yummy.
 Idk what's with blogger but the pictures look a lot clearer and better on facebook.
 We then left the countryside to the coastal area for some fish and chips!
 Wanna try some raw herring? I'd always seen documentaries featuring Europeans eating raw herring as if we asians gobble down our sashimi. I never thought it could taste so good! Ern and i, being skeptical asians, shared one at first. But we couldn't resist and almost bought another! Just had to leave some space for an afternoon beer so we decided not to in the end. It was an awesome experience being taught by the locals on how we should eat the herring!
Amsterdam still felt the same to me, but it definitely changed my perspective on the Dutch people this time round.

Woke up exceptionally early this morning without any alarm and it's strange how I can't fall back into slumber like how I usually do.

Maybe cos too many things are running through my mind at the one same time? Why does it seem like this summer break's more stressful than it is supposed to be?

Ben's leaving to australia for air grading in 3 weeks! Very abrupt but I'm glad that he'll finally be able to fly again. The 6 weeks of separation should be a joyous one; a start to fulfilling the dream of the man I love. & I know with the embarkment of his career I will soon be entrenched in a long-distance relationship alongside with all the girlfriend-woes.

But really, what can be better than him being happy?

"A relationship isn’t always 50-50. Sometimes, it needs to be 80-20, and others it is is 30-70. It’s about giving and taking, but it doesn’t always flow equally. It isn’t about giving yourself away and being a doormat, but it’s about understanding how everyone has bad days and there’s no need to be calculative. "

I don't care if you wouldn't like me because babe, it's obvious now that I dislike you too.

Good that I don't have to maintain that image anymore.

The biggest paradox is when one learns to be of lesser importance one will end up happier.

You saved me so many times, in so many ways, in so many different occasions.

Yesterday, you drove your family and I out for dinner. I took the front seat and it was odd to have your parents seated behind for the first time.

I don't know how to drive. I hate to drive. I don't think it is even cool to drive. I don't need to drive. I don't want to drive. I won't learn, in the near future, how to drive.

Yes I am lazy, delusional, and spoilt.
But I know there you'll be, saving me again : )
