A whirlwind of a month (June 2018). Concluding it with something I’m proud of. I put myself in a room filled with many gay men. I’m not talking about a sauna. I’m talking about volunteering for a local organization that helps fight the stigma against HIV/AIDS.
Here’s our group shot from last Saturday at our induction.
The last five weeks in photos…
Pasar Malam at Geylang Serai. Less magical this time. I mean, at one point it was just a fantastic adventure into the tents. This year’s felt like an ordeal because the group we were in was kind of a hodgepodge of personalities lol.
Mustering the courage to return to my dragon boat team and help with the coverage for its biggest annual event “Isang Bangkang Malaya”.
It’s an attempt. I think I did well naman.
Learning that even Milk Tea can be ordered using these panels.
I had a heart-to-heart with a teammate, a straight one. He’s going through some shit himself but he’s totally just quiet and cool about it. I wish I could be like him… but seriously though…
A friend invited me to experience an onsen with him. It was a first time. And glad I did it! I now have less inhibitions.
Here I am with Kap Kevin. Basically he’s my mentor on the team but I hate to put him on a pedestal lol ang weird siguro. We’re sharing beers and a quick chat about our team’s design stuff.
Great to catch up with an acquittance I made during the whole OUT@nbcu gig I had a few years ago. He’s now working for a tech company that specializes in building people’s careers. Here we are after enjoying ice cream.
Remy has been a nice guy and brought me to visit the SingTel Recreation Club one night to see people dancing bachata. What a night to be in a room with so many dancers!
Probably the one item that’s “out of the box” the last five weeks. I went on a pilgrimage to hunt for the Yoda statue at LucasFilm’s studios in Singapore. Eventually found it in a garden and… well… like “true” to life (lol)… quite small.
Incredible that the flight path of the famous helicopter trio that carries the country’s flag has a practice path that flies over Bukit Merah.
And speaking of Bukit Merah… a great time bonding with my flatmates over pizza and jenga. And Overcooked.
And by adding new rules to my jenga collection. Thank gawd the last rules added were from 2016.
A lazy Sunday afternoon working on design elements for the team.
Finishing the Isang Bangkang Malaya e-magazine with the help of my committee mates.
Hanging out at JC, Cass, and Joanna’s…. VR fun and chit-chat.
Then… the office lunches. Don Don Donki.
Releasing the e-magazine. FINALLY.
Hari Raya celebration in the office.
Starting my farewells. 😦
Socials night at Joanna’s office which is a co-working space.
Hitting the gym again on a summer Friday.
Accompanying a fb for his HIV testing. lol what
Pasalubongs from a friend’s NZ trip.
Revisting old haunts like this one at Lucky Plaza.
Mid-year meeting with my committee.
Taking Ulrike (rightmost) out for satay!
H&M Orchard late night moments with Arleen.
Catching up with Peepo! My college classmate. And confessing to him that I was head over heels over his college best friend. LOL — nothing to lose. 14 years has passed!
Saying farewell to our 1st Half 2018 interns.
This sudden TOKYO PARK pop-up in the middle of Tanjong Pagar.
Jogging with Joanna.
Joanna’s pasta and wine.
And this snobbish cat downstairs from my block.
June 2018… definitely something.
MUST KEEP WALKING. MUST KEEP MOVING FORWARD.
