Last week, I am so happy that my sister was here in Singapore. Last Monday, she left for Manila already. I love my sister, she is my best friend. I enjoy trying out new restaurants, hang out in quirky cafes and talk non-stop about anything. I love that she get to have some play time with Naj. I believe she has mastered the art of ‘auntie-ing’. She will be coming back soon to stay a bit longer.
Even with a busy start of the week at work, I was glad the pace at work got slower midweek. And I even got a surprising treat from a patient last Wednesday. She came over the clinic to bring some cute balloons she made for me. It was such a heartwarming gesture. I was touched and grateful.
Yesterday, I was on my annual leave to attend this workshop on The Art of Visual Storytelling conducted by Bloesom at my favorite neighbourhood in Singapore in Tiong Bahru. I learned the importance of creating strong visuals for my blog which I still have a long way to learn. So if there are any friendly photographers out there who would willingly give me tips, I would be very happy to learn more. Our class also get to try a little bit of Photoshop. I am still struggling with it since I am used to Picasa or my Camera360 in my iPhone, hehe.
This week, we are sort of preparing for the week ahead. It will be my hubby’s birthday tomorrow, my mother-in-law will be leaving soon for the Philippines and my parents might be visiting Singapore next week. I can’t wait to see my parents and for them to see Naj.
This week also, Pope Francis visited the Philippines. I am so inspired by the stories back home of their encounter with our Holy leader. Even non-Catholics respected him and feel a certain joy & peace when they met him. The Holy Spirit is alive and well and wants all of us to come back home to God. We have strayed so long far from Him. This is a year of spiritual renewal for all of us. Thank you Pope Francis for visiting the Philippines and reminding us of God’s love for us.
