Hi there! I’m Samantha,

and this space encompasses my personal milestones made beautiful in His time. Combining my flair for easy-to-read writing and my love for photography, here you'll find me sharing the thing I'm most passionate about - travel, food, fashion and my conversations with God.

*P.S when God was blessing others with the gift of height, He left me out realizing that great things come in tiny packages, so instead I am gifted with endless energy and a big wide smile to get through difficult times.

Forever & always, a child of God. Through this cozy little virtual haven, I hope each post inspires at least someone out there with my life stories.

Are you planning your next event?

There’s always something for everyone at Temptations Cakes, let us celebrate your next special event (be it a birthday party, baby's first month, wedding, christmas, you name it!) and create lovely memories with you.

It's THE Day! :D:D:D
When we all gather...

Wasn't that excited through... :(

Saw many familiar faces, like I know at least half of the entire BSG people there, and plus some that I know exist but don't know them personally. So yeah, not much surprises. Feel so happy for all!

Putting makeup in the middle of Engineering School.

Invitations! (:

RMT Students!
Business! Imagine this was my project group... Woah.
Actually, I can't really imagine. All I know is we will fight till the end, and have fun still!
We just have the same working style, I guess (:
Fun + Work = Success!

Fionn came up to sit w me for awhile before the ceremony started.
OMG, really Thank God for her! Despite being a short catchup session, we simply HTHT to each others. You know it's like, you can only talk to people in the same situation as you, then they will understand... She's one I always look forward to talking to because we understand each other. Balancing studies & cca. Woah, quite a feat. Support! (: Love you girl!

My Mum! (:
See, so many people.
What I call, typical Singaporean scenes, sometimes.

Jereld was so funny I swear, this is the convo:
Sam & Jane: 'Want go buy the pic anot, the food queue so long...'
Jereld: 'Let's go take food, no one will buy your pic, but people will eat your food.' BASKET RIGHT! I was laughing like crazy!
When it was our turn, no more plates ! :(
Jane was damn funny man, she said 'Sure is under table'.. so she flip up the table cloth. Basket, really got spares ones under the table. Pro sia!!!

The awesome Mango Pudding!
The people to study with!
Xiu Yuan, my lame buddy who changed out of his formal due to dance!

THE FO girls! (:

Ru Ting!

Cheng Nee!
Qiao Yin!

Didn't expect myself to get this when I first stepped into TP.
Today, receiving this award, is a BONUS to me.

GOD planned it well, He made everything worth it. No regrets!

This felt so unattainable.
Everyone said 'Woah, you want to go Uni, go Poly uh? Need Top 10% leh'. That made me very hesitant initially. To me, Top 10% were for serious nerds, who mug so hard.. I mean, you know those RGS-RI-RJC standard. Like when you hear a GPA 4.0, from University, you will think they are some professionals or sth right... & that's not my personality. I was disheartened.

Because, I'm just an average student. Back in Primary school like most of us, EM2. Back in Secondary school, below average I guess, I was in the LAST class of the Express stream (Which to me thinking back, is a blessing in disguise, because I got to take F&N & Drama, which no one else has such a unique O-Level Combi). Well, I never got any academic achievements, the most... Edusave? Academic awards were like the last thing on my list. To me, a pass for certain subjects is like a dream come true already!

Despite all that, I braced up & took the challenge!

All I told myself was 'Sam, this is your choice, you are more suited for poly, don't go JC just because you wanna go Uni. So, since you chose to go to a poly and it's a risk you are taking if you want to enter a local Uni.. you just have to do my best!'

Reason why I chose Business, is for the Passion!

I guess why I can do much better now, is because of the school system.
I mean, I'm a very logical & practical person. I like things which I think are useful.
I didn't feel that O level subjects were useful so I don't do well. But now, they are industry-driven, thus at least I know that there is use in studying them.. I guess.

Of course, what I have just said is maybe 35% true only, because if now you give me a past year paper to do, I will simply pass it back to you are say 'Sorry, I forgot everything already.'
I only remember things which are significant & applicable. & definitely, NOT exam papers. That's just crazy!

No doubt, I would be lying if I said the journey for the past 1 year was a bed of roses. It never was. The many days, nights, weeks or months spent cursing and swearing and crying w a little sense of joy & satisfaction, just because of projects and exams. Woah, in Poly, it's never easy. But, thru it all, I survived. No, we survived. Yes, we survived & I'm so proud of all of us. I always feel poly students have an upper-hand. We face much more things here in school. So, who cares about the muggers always thinking they are a cup above us. Ohwells.

Got to continue to work hard & keep the momentum.
It's gonna be tough, cause right now, I don't know what I'm doing, but I got 'Cs' and all, pulling my GPA down already.

Ohwells, what can I do?
I'm just gonna do my best, and leave the rest to GOD.
He is in control!
He has the best plan for me.

Headed off to join BSC for AGMs and stayed in the room to discuss AGM stuffs, then after.
Stranded(!) because I left my wallet & housekey with my Mum just now, so took a lift from Isaac's dad to Bedok Simpang tgt with Darren & Ben, to watch Soccer.

Woah, the atmosphere is damn high.
We were lucky. Once, we stepped in, Brazil scored their 1st GOAL!

Supposed to go down to Yu Xiu's house to join the Clique, when Nic pick me up, however, Nicholas was still at Bedok Interchange and undecided if he's going, so I went home instead!
