Top 5 Books of 2019

It's that time of the year again where I select my top 5 books of the year. This year I have read 95 book!  The most number of books I have read in my life. It's pretty amazing. I enjoyed a lot of poetry this year and I wonder how that will change in 2020. But without further a do,  here are my top 5 books of 2019.

1. Becoming by Michelle Obama (Hands down the best book I've read this year. What strike me the most is how raw and honest she is about how she feels to be on the spotlight, on finding her place, of being a woman along side her husband. Highly recommend this to everyone.)

2. Before We Were Strangers by Renee Carlino (Beautifully written and it has all the feels I needed in a book. I remember just enjoying this and I can't put it down. It was that good. Worth a reread.)

3. Please Don't Go Before I Get Better by Madisen Kuhn (A poetry written by a young lady that is so raw and real.)

4. The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse by Charlie Mackesy (Everyone should read this! It's a quick read but it's magical and it makes you think about life too.)

5. Unfiltered by Lily Collins (I'm surprise by how much I enjoy this book. Perhaps because I can relate to her a lot and her book resonates with me.)

These dreams; the biggest dreams I have since I was young was granted, gifted, blessed with. 2019 has taught me that dreams do come true and all you have to do is listen and follow your heart. It always knows, it just does. Thank you 2019 for this wonderful year and I'm looking forward to welcoming 2020. Also here are more highlights of 2019.

A Week In London

A Week In London

It's been a week since I moved to London and I've seen more places than the last time I visited. I have a much different perspective of this city now that I'm older and no longer a tourist. It's true what they say, living in London is far different from being a tourist. I observed things, experienced things and I understood why there is no other city greater than London.

This city is everything. They make it easy for people to be eat healthy, offers so many options to the public; from museums, art, food to music. Life is in London and here I am living it.

Thank You Singapore

Thank You Singapore

Image result for Singapore tumblr

Okay this is giving me goosebumps. I may not have written an entry when I first moved to Singapore in 2009 but I did wrote an entry when I moved to a new apartment in 2011. It's been a decade and I can't believe I'm still writing my thoughts here. And honestly I don't plan to stop anytime soon, though I am thinking of starting an art journal, still I won't abandon this.

I'm moving to London next week and tomorrow is officially my last day of work! Wow I'm just having a flashback on my time in this country. I lived here for a decade and that saids something. This is the place where I:

- First dreamed to move to another country
-  Married the love of my life
- Got my first full time job
- Bought my first designer bag - Philip Lim Pashli 
- Went to Europe for the first time. London to be exact 
- Lived on my own then later moved in with my boyfriend who is now my husband.
- Worked for a big company
- Really got into fitness
- Stopped eating meat and so much more.

Thank you Singapore for the dreams, for the love of my life and for leading me to London. I'm forever thankful for all of these wonderful, memorable and life changing experience.

Goodbye Singapore. I will see you another time.
