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.

Growing Up in the 1990s

We are the last generation who learned to play in the streets,played hide and seek,london bridge is falling down,ice and water, block catching, paper plane throw top of HDB Block, blind mice playground. we are the first ones who've played video games, and we're the last ones to record ...songs off the radio on cassettes.

Adjust antenna to watch TV, ate A&W before it went extinct in singapore. Watch LD (Laser Disc), share m'sia chnls on tv. Watch channel 5 when it was under TCS. Watched low SFX dramas like old casino chnl 8 drama and was in awe! Bring Walkman to School was cool. Tamiya cars.

We learned how to program the VCR before anyone else, play with Gameboy,Play Station One,Super Nintendo, &............... Genesis. We also believed that the internet would be a free world.

We are the generation of the Digimon,Pokemon,Power Rangers,PowerPuffGirls, Tom and Jerry,Thunder Cat and Ninja turtle, Dexter's Laboratory, Johnny Bravo, Cow&Chicken, Mian Bao Chao Ren....Sailor...M***, smurf, swat cats, ghostbusters, he man, ultraman, superman, Johnny Quest, Captain planet.. Traveled in cars without seat belts or airbags, lived without mobile phones.

We used public phone with 10 cent coin. We board bus with transitlink card. King albert Park had a playground. Orchard road was much smaller. We can buy shitloads of stuff with $1. Catch bugs and watch them fight. Had to walk super long under hot sun before reach busstops. MRT line was seriously limited. Potong ice cream was godlike?

The food in the 90s was the golden age... now all you see is franchises of novelty items. All the traditional flavour is lost.

Live on an internet connection which would have killed modern nerds due to the long dial time. Phone call will instant kill your internet.

We didn't have iPhone, iPad ,Macbook ,Psp, surround sound, mp3, iPods, Facebook or Twitter but nevertheless we had a really GREAT TIME! :)
