Family Day


Saturday is normally family day with my in-laws.

And family day for us usually translates into an over-indulging lunch, viewing showhouses, some sort of shopping, followed by another over-indulging meal.

We're boring people. We can do the same things week after week and still not bored of it.

Walking through beautifully done-up showhouses always reminds me of the passion I once had for interior design and decorating.



5 jobs I'll be doing if I had pursued art instead of science:
  • Fashion stylist
  • Fashion buyer
  • Interior designer/decorator
  • Writer
  • Event organiser/wedding planner
I love all things beautiful and I think I have a knack for it too, but I guess choosing an almost-guaranteed road to money and status seemed like the sensible thing to do. Though it turned out to be not much of both since I'm now a full-time bum. :/

Besides, I really wasn't that talented in art anyway. I may have an eye for detail and passion for beauty, but quite frankly, I lack the creativity and originality to be different. So maybe I should just stick to buying beautiful things, instead of working with them.

And I love my job, I do. I feel blessed to be where I am (or should I say "was", since I'm currently unemployed by choice?), and I'm not complaining about the career path I chose.

I'm just rambling on because I didn't get my cupcake fix today, as promised. It's a good thing that I did get my ice cream from Baskin-Robbins, otherwise I might suffer from an even-more-severe case of verbal diarrhea. Haha.

Now if you'd excuse me, I should go and have a big piece of blueberry cheesecake to shut myself up.

I feel the same! I used to have such a passion for art... I still do... it's somewhere hiddne... underneath all the materialism... sigh.

I like to go to showrooms too. But there are very limited showrooms around my area. The most I can go is IKEA showroom.

You know what, those jobs you listed are my love too, except being a writer. Hehehehe

Fuzkittie: Yeah, I guess somewhere along the way, we just stopped being idealistic and started being realistic about our dreams in life. :)

Horizon: I was actually talking about showhouses of new property development, not furniture showrooms. There're plenty of them around these days.

Doreen: It's my personal belief that all gals dream of being a wedding planner at some point of our lives. And who, in the right mind, wouldn't wanna be a fashion buyer huh? :D
