I get asked this question rather frequently: “What’s a typical day in your life like?”
Do you get asked such a question too? Or is it just me?
I always end up explaining how each day is just entirely different from the previous day. So, I figured I might as well blog about TODAY and direct people to this blogpost every time the question’s asked!
Yes, I’m a full-time blogger, but I also pride myself on having a full-time LIFE too. Some people I know have either a HALF life or NO life at all (yes, you know the kind, right?). So, today’s supposed to be pretty relaxing (by most people’s standards).
I hit the gym in the morning, trying to shed those extra kilos gained since I-don’t-know-when. And because a lunch appointment was postponed to another day somewhat last minute, I ate lunch on my own (no big deal since I love savoring my meal without being distracted by the conversation going on). Subway’s my favorite when I’m on a diet. And their $5 combo is such a great deal. I only ever order TUNA and nothing else – no beef pastrami or such nonsense. And I try to resist getting the chocolate chip cookie.
By the way, I get ‘paralyzed’ (metaphorically, of course) when I encounter too many choices – bread and ingredients aside, have you seen the number of SAUCES Subway offers?! It’s like you can have 500 different sandwich combinations!
Hence, I stick to the same order each time: 6-inch Hearty Italian bread, TUNA, with lettuce, onions & MORE tomatoes, topped with a Sweet Onion sauce.
Boring and predictable, you may say, but this makes everything so fuss-free and I’m not complaining.
How do YOU deal with choices when there are just too many of them?
After lunch, I went to FullHouse cafe at Rendezvous Gallery (9 Bras Basah Road) to meet my friend, Sean, who has recently published his 2nd book titled ‘Gone Fishing with Buffett’. It’s a great read, and I even wrote a testimonial for him with regard to this book:
Want to get this book at an amazing price? Click here.
Why did I choose to meet Sean at FullHouse cafe, though? For one, I’d never stepped into the place. And two, I’d gone to the outlet in Kota Kinabalu (Sabah) and liked the concept!
Their Hi-Tea Promo (3-6pm) is worth a try, in my opinion. For $5.90 (before taxes and all),
Choose from their selection of cakes and get a drink.
The place is great for photo-taking, but here’s just one of Sean and I hijacking the car in FullHouse. XD
It was a most enjoyable tea session with Sean sharing his knowledge about book publication and me eagerly taking notes. One of my goals for 2013: Publish a book! Remember to show your support by getting a copy ok?
Then I went to shop for a birthday present for a dear girlfriend of mine at Bugis Junction. I can’t tell you what I bought, in case she reads this blogpost.
And finally, I headed to Katong CC for a Toastmasters meeting. You can find out more about the Katong Toastmasters Club here.
My friend, Joni, presented her final project to earn the Distinguished Toastmaster Award. And I’m glad I was there to witness her achievement and take a photo with her:
The new DTM !
Those sweet darlings at her club gave her a (cowgirl) hat and a cake!
It was great being back at Toastmasters – the energy was high, the speakers eloquent and knowledgeable, and the catching up with old pals was priceless.
And there you have it. Mystery solved – this is one of those days in my life. ‘Those days’ are not all the same, but I’m happiest when I learn something new, and I can’t complain about today.
What is a typical day like in YOUR life?
