Back in the old days, it was just my immediate family: Pa, Ma, my two younger brothers and me. But the participants grew as we siblings got married and had children. These days, it is not just my brood and my brother's kids at these dinners. Even family friends, cousins and aunts are here.

  • 5 things I wished I could have said to my younger junior college self

    mothership.sg
    28 Feb 2015 | 1:18 am
    I passed my A-level exams more than a year ago in November 2013. Somehow it still feels recent. The major consensus between my friends, seniors and I is that none of us want to go back to that period of time again — even if we were given a choice. Making it past A-levels was difficult. It was a time that filled me with self-doubt, self-loathing and unhappiness. Don’t get me wrong. I loved junior college life. I was feeling my happiest. It was a milestone because I was surrounded by old and new friends that I knew would last a lifetime. However, A-levels was an entirely different matter.

Then why must "logo design" be a task restricted to only a highly professional computer geek with knowledge of all sorts of fancy programs? To be honest, I never understood this myself.

I left my CrossFit box because firstly, I felt I wasn’t progressing; I was getting fitter with all the metcons, but not in strength, which go against everything CrossFit stood for. Secondly, I was getting too caught up with trying to beat metcon timings in the box that I became obsessed with trying to get better at CrossFit.
