A Day in Black, Pink and Frustration.

Here's one of my favourite work dresses; A black dress with hot pink trimmings and a lush full skirt - paired with a multi-coloured skinny woven belt. Got it while spreeing in Bangkok last year!

Love the scrunched up pleats!

Come follow me to work!

Clomp clomp clomp.

Speaking of work, I've had a really bad day. Here are the list of things that went wrong:

  1. Woke up with an elephant-sized zit on my left cheek
  2. Faced an elephant-sized pile of work 
  3. Forgot an important deadline (!)
  4. Got assigned to collect a poster from our printer and drop it off at one of our stores after work, which pretty much meant overtime
  5. Left office and walked the arduous journey out to the main road, all ready to hop on a cab, when I got a call from our printer that she did not receive the file to print!
  6. Walked all the way back to the office, turned on the pc, saved the file in my hard drive
  7. Called and begged printer lady to wait for me as its already near their closing time
  8. Waited an eternity for a cab
  9. Traffic jam! Waited an eternity in the cab.
  10. Got to the printer's, waited another 30 minutes for the print
  11. Hailed and got rejected by 3 different cab drivers because they have their own itineraries in mind
  12. Got to church band practice 1.5 hours late!
Yet, amidst bad circumstances, there are always things to give thanks for:
  1. Boyfriend offered kind words and a lot of comfort. 
  2. Printer lady very kindly waited for me and served me with patience even beyond opening hours
  3. Got onto a cab with a wonderful cab driver who agreed to wait for me while I run off to drop the poster, with the possibility of not ever returning (but I returned of course! One good turn deserves another.)
  4. Was greeted with a lot of love and concern once I got to church for the practice - a big thank you to all my lovely bandmates!
  5. Enjoyed an hour of worshipping as we practiced.
  6. Ended the day with a wonderful dinner cum supper with boyfriend and Ling.
All thanksgivings to God Almighty, who is in control at all times. 

Anyone else had a bad day? Big hug for you! Smileeeee!! :):):)

This is such a cute post. You are so so very charming :) I'm so appreciative to my boyfriend. Because no matter how grumpy I am, he's always sweet.

Your belt is so nice. I love how it's multi-colored! :)

All the best, Angel
