2015 in Pictures

Since everyone is posting their ‘Year in Review’ on FB, I thought of doing one too. 🙂

2015 has been interesting, to say the least. It has been a year of travelling, life-changing decisions, changes, and self-understanding. I’m glad I made it through safe and sound, and (hopefully!) a better, more mature person.

Here are some highlights:

Met up with ex-collegemates at a wedding.

AUGUST

Quit a stable, well-paying job as a journalist at the largest news organisation in the country. Moved to a small start-up. Felt that time with family + sanity > working long nights, crazy weekends and no time for friends/fam. Parents still went berserk because traditional Chinese. Anyway, no regrets.

SEPTEMBER
