22.09.06: Went on our first date as poor students, 10 months later we officially got together.
22.09.11: Big man plan a surprise proposal, 10 months later I had my dream wedding came true at MO.
22.09.16: 10 years later, we just want to spend quiet time running later, look at what time and old age did to us😂😂. Pray-fully that 10 months later, we will be able to get our first home that we are both pleased at our ideal location.
I'm hitting a significant age in 4 months time and I wanted to get myself a gift. I was searching around and I realized that at such an old age, I've never spend or buy any time pieces for myself at all!
It'll be very meaningful to get myself a watch to celebrate my big 3??
From my memory, my first watch was a very childish watch with cover. Of course, the cover wasn't Doraemon. It was a little girl's face. It was a watch given by momma & Kor to prepare me for Primary one.
Tragic happens when the cover dropped out within hours 😱. I was so frighten & tried to hide it among the clothing. That night, Kor asked me where's my watch & I kept quiet.
Somehow he managed to find the watch & scolded me. He was angry that I try to hide my wrong-doing instead of owning up.
That night, he taught me a lesson on how I should always be brave to own up my wrong doings, apologize or compensate if needed. I should NEVER try to hide or bury the wrong doings.
It's a very significant moment that I vividly remembered what happened till now.
I went watch-less until I hit 9. At the end of Primary 3, I shifted from Tanjong Pagar to Admiralty. This meant a change in school & I was so devastated. I have school mates who stayed at the same block & we will play at the playground together during evening time. I cried like mad on the day we shifted. Too much memories at Tanjong Pagar area.
Momma bought me a Barbie doll house and a Polly pocket watch. She and Kor taught me that HOME can be shifted and I will shift when I grew up too.
I learn from this shift that HOME is indeed where your love ones are at. Momma and Kor are right too, I shifted out from Admiralty to our current place. And in due time, I'll be shifting out to me & big man's first home too.
The next few watches that I owned were all bought from momma. Baby G & G-shock was very in-trend and I remember it'll be super cool if you wear one to secondary school.
My next watch was when I just knew Big Man. Casio vintage gold watch was in-trend 10 years ago! I remembered when he told me he wanted to get me a watch, I was like 🙄🙄. But when I walked into the shop, I saw this watch, I'm like 😍😍.
I worn this watch for the next 6 years until the watch has became quite worn off and the gold was peeling. I'll wear it EVERY SINGLE DAY no matter what my outfit was. To the point Big Man & my friends asked me to get a new one because this is too old to be worn.
We went honeymoon and Big Man bought this O'clock for me and gotten one for himself too. I think this is the only couple thing that we had apart from our wedding band!
It came to a point when a close friend couldn't take how "ugly" and "old" my vintage watch is, so he gotten me a mother of pearl surface DKNY watch. I was very touch when I receive this watch as Christmas gift.
He told me that I'm already at a team leader position and I have to attend meetings and all. I'll need a "more decent" watch to go out & meet the world.
I'm so blessed by friends around me!!
After which I started receiving advert from last year October and received a total of 8 watches. I'm really blessed that till now, I've yet to spend anything on a time piece.
I guess apart from clothing, I can't bear to spend on time pieces until I saw this watch. I immediately took it off my friend's wrist and put it on.
It was love at first sight 😍.
For the first time, I fell in love with a watch!
When I saw this on my friend's wrist, I took it off him and worn it on mine and snapped this photo. He's a super close friend so I dare to do that.
I was telling Big Man & a few friends but they said that people like Rolex etc I like this kind of watch 😅.
I know this ain't cheap & for the price, I can get a lower range Rolex but I have no feel for luxury brand watches like Rolex or even Chanel except for this.
They have the black and rose gold version too.
Black and gold version too but I think the orange version is still nicer even thou it's hard to match outfit.
And yes, I'm getting myself one of these to mark my significant big 3! It'll be a milestone that I'm getting my first time piece on my own. And I guess it'll be the last time I'm willing to splurge on time piece??
But I'm worried when I walk into the shop and see the 4 digit price tag again, I'll feel 💔💔 and walk out empty handed.
What are the other stuff that you girls gotten for your big 3 or have the intention to get?
I feel that it doesn't have to be something expensive but I feel that time pieces have been marking the significant milestone in my life and I wish to get myself one to mark this significant milestone.
Anyway, #LoveAndBravery has launched their new collection. I have one more outfit to pick and I'm considering these few items!!
Do remember to quote <mandalogy8> for 8% off all online purchases too.
I love the details of the hem but I'm not sure if it'll be too short for me. I hope this will be available in the shop for me to try.
I think pink looks very sweet too! If this is available, I want to give it a try!
This basic jumper caught my eyes too! This will be another wardrobe staple if I were to choose this.
This is the culottes that I tried on at the shop the other time. I love it a lot but it's a pity that I can't find a top to bring home a whole outfit. I might be purchasing this online because this is a nice culottes!
How come I didn't see this babydoll top in the shop 😍!!
My orders will be reaching me after my BKK trip! Such a pity that It's not Arriving before my BKK trip, if not I can wear some of the items to BKK le!
#LoveBonito just launched!

Ever since big man is back, I've been feeling lazy because he always psycho me to eat instead of run.
So after a weak 4.35km, we went to eat MacDonald. Living up the quote of <We run to EAT😅🙄>.
Seaweed shaker fries is back and they are my favourite shaker fries out of the many release.
And they are the reason why I wasted my run today, I can't say no to seaweed 😁✌🏻️.
Finally took out the Philosophy products to try and take photo.

For this Shiseido Ultimune too. Can't wait to try this tonight too.
Can't wait for LB warehouse sales on Saturday. I've seen a few of the preview and I knew I wanted the white tube maxi dress!
I hope I'll be able to control my spending that day and not go crazy with my sister-in-law. Think we have to remind each other that we are flying to Bangkok next week.
