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.

Graduation // 2016

This is such a belated post. Almost a year since Gradution.
Nevertheless, am still gonna post my afterthoughts, because it's all worth it if I look back 10 years later.

Graduation, summarised? I'm happy and contented because this is truly a gift from God.
It's not my hard work that got me here. I'm kidding myself if I ever think that way. My own effort contributed 0.01% to this achievement.

For many graduates like myself, circumstances are such that there is a direct correlation between how hard I work and the results I achive. For many more people in Singapore and around the world, this correlation is much weaker or does not exist.

 I have parents who encourage and discipline me to study hard when I was young, so I could start off well. They gave me a comfortable and stable life, so I did not have to worry about anything. I have friends around me who bless me with their friendship and pressure me, unconsciously, to keep up with my studies. I have had a number of teachers who are exceptional in their teaching and inspirational in their care for students. I am born into a country that provides lots of food to keep me going, free flow of drinkable water everywhere I go, great health care, great education, fast transport and not forgetting safety and security. Most importantly, I have my Lord who is always present and never fails me. All these blessings contributed to my graduation far more than my own effort. I never earned or deserved such circumstances, they are wonderful gifts from God.

My graduation is a reminder of how blessed I am, not a declaration of my success. While I am given so much hope for the future, there are many unmet needs out there. If I am truly grateful, I must be a blessing to a needy world.
