Things I am Grateful for Today

  • Gonna meet Ingrid 2pm at Gardens by the Bay – I haven’t seen her in a long time
  • Met my parents at Vivo’s Sushi teh for dinner after my walk with Ingrid at Sentosa
  • I enjoyed catching up with Ingrid. We talked a lot about my times in Germany. I miss it.


Gonna bring Ingrid around for a walk. The first time I saw her was in 2012 at Munich. She took great care of dawn, seech, xs and myself. The next time I saw her was in 2014 when I solo travel Germany. She brought me to many alps and hikes that I truly enjoyed. In spite of my busy schedule, I just wanna bring her out today to explore different parts of Singapore.

I am glad Ingrid enjoyed herself today. It was nice catching up with her, she invited me to Germany again but I am not sure if I can go in August. God knows I love to, I miss my time in Germany very much! I miss my friends there too, Hailang, Stephan, Jani, Melanie, Michael and many more. I will never forget their love and care for me when I was there for 5 weeks in 2014. It was one of the best memories I’ve had!

2014 was very long ago… it was 5 LONG YEARS! I still remember the time hailang and I heart to heart talk at the balcony of Munich, we were talking about what I’d be like in 5 years. And now 5 years is soon up, I hope to see him again soon. I will work hard for it.

Keep humming this hymn in the shower that I learned from CIS many years ago:

“God will make a way, where there’s seems to be no way, he works in ways we cannot see, he will make a way for me. He will be my guide, holding me closely to his side, with words and strength for each new day, he will make a way… he will make a way!”

I don’t know if I got the lyrics exactly right but I just sang it anyway.
