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.

The 19th Birthday Week!

This backdated post sums up my entire birthday celebrations this year!

19th Part I: Granny's Handmade Dinner
Granny called me up on a weekday during internship and asked me to her house for dinner because she wanted to cook special noodles for my birthday. Birthday & Noodles, kinda like a tradition between my beloved granny & myself.


She believes in eating noodles on birthdays, and it's been going like that since young, so I make it a point to have noodles as a representation of 大了 1 year older!

Absolutely tasty!

Look at the spread. It's all for me!

Always allow myself to overeat when I'm at granny's. I know, somehow I'll just end up eating lots and feeling super full. Guess it's because she cooks my favourite dishes and I seldom go her place for dinner, so I'll just let loose and eat as much as possible!

Grandparents handed me my Birthday presents...

Ang Pows and Jewelleries

Hung around her place till late, saw these pics... Used to stay at my Granny's when I was younger. Till date, she still keeps pictures of me :)

Brings back memories...

with my beloved cousins whom I grew up with. I'm the eldest granddaughter on my Mum's side ; On the extreme left, in Red!

Went around the house to snap some pictures with cute Seven


Before leaving, I had to take some pictures which the woman who brought me up...


*P.S Granddad's shy, teeheee!

19th Part II: Back to TP & Night @ Helipad
Birthday Eve was spent celebrating the official end of my internship with my lovely colleagues over at Chomp Chomp. Headed to school to meetup with the Biz peeps, mentally supporting Mel, Zaxe, Jiahou & the rest for the OTC Appeal Session. I swear, it was a crowd!!!


What a mental torture, anyways. Shan't eloborate, it's over! Just that, I don't believe in appeals for camps, honestly. I believe that if the individual is not a problem kid & most importantly, has a passion/heart to serve for camp, just let the person in! It's not easy being a GL, that's I can say... and I'm surprise so many people are interested in attending a 6day straight camp... so why reject! Sighs! Not up to me to decide... Back to my Birthday Eve! (:


Headed over to Melody's place to get ready for some clubbing party session @ Helipad

We were famished :( Decided to stopby a random coffeeshop for supper.

Yummy Soup Noodles!

That's where I officially celebrate my 1st second of turning 19.

The girls sang the classic 'Happy Birthday' song for me LOUDLY in the coffeeshop... Hmm, super embarrassed! On a sidenote, what a place for my birthday!

Didn't think so much, was just so hungry :(

Makeup Checked!

Getting ready to get out!

It was my first time there & as usual, me being me, I was very excited to try out new places!
Too bad, it rained and they closed the rooftop area so we couldn't enjoy the view from the peak :( Guess I'll head back there next time round.


Turns out that Helipad's entrance is at the side of the multistory carpark, I never knew!


Here are some pictures of the night:

Still very sober!

Complied the night into One!


19th Part III: Birthday Staycation @ Studio M


On the actual birthday, I booked Studio M for a Birthday Staycation. Did a separate blog entry about the very lovely comfortable place I was at.

You can read it here!


19th Part IV: Church
My birthday fell on a Saturday & I have church services on Saturday evenings. So, in between the staycation, I headed to Nexus for service. What better way to spend my birthday with my creater, my maker, my father above. To the person who knows me the best, inside out, thankyou God for everything, every little thing you have blessed me with. Even if & even when the whole world fails me, you never & will never ever fail me. Thank You.

Some group shots after service. Love these girls of mine!

Was just hanging outside Nexus afterwhich, and suddenly some of them came out with a cake and started singing me the Happy Birthday song. I was quite surprise, plus I had a pretty cake!

Birthdays are when you realise how people remember/know you by.
Bimbo's my middle name!
bytheway, I'm the President of Bimbo club in my church.

My lifegroup Girls!


19th Part V: High on Fondue
Met up with Mediacorp Dec Dazzle babes @ Holland Village. Known them since I was 12years old. Time really flies. Settled at Hagen Daaz and shared an awesome fondue set.

You can read it here!



Guess what it is?

My grandmother would totally love Virina for this thoughtful gift... Because she's always asking V to make me drink water. hahaha!


Hello Kitty Bottle!
Thanks girl, rest assured, I'll use it!
