So Fucking Op

S F O

So, your geographically dumb goddess went to SFO a couple of weeks back. I KNOW. I ONLY POST IT NOW. SORRY.

And I didn’t know SFO is smaller than Singapore. HAHA. Hey, it made me feel proud for a moment there. I also didn’t know they had so many homeless people 😦 and it made me feel sad. I think we Singaporeans have it too comfy here and this luxury gets into most of our heads.

*Think egoistic Singaporean men.*

I don’t think I can ever date a Singaporean man anymore. Somehow some part in me just died when it comes to love.

SFO 1

For some unknown reason, despite the SFO air being really crisp and bloody cold, My skin was pretty bad. I know, sorry u cant really tell from this shitty Iphone captured selfie.

DID YOU KNOW, i GOOGLED THE WEATHER 2 WEEKS IN ADVANCE BEFORE I FLEW THERE, SO IT SHOWED ME “WEATHER 25 DEG” AND SUDDENLY WHEN I WENT, IT WAS LIKE LITERALLY 15.

So as you can imagine I almost died.

SFO 2

Behold the most iconic “Everyone has to come here and take a pic” Golden Gate Bridge.

Call me hipster from another planet but I think people overhype stuff like that. I mean okay, we went to the bridge, everyone was taking pics. And then I’m like “So…. that’s it? Nothing to do here?”

NOTHING.

I was admiring the vast body of water and also dying from the cold more than anything. Was trying to picture how my body would be…. falling to the bottom of the sea… in this freezing water. Maybe there’s a school of fish that will devour my sad remains.

SO DARK I KNOW.

Everything is big in SFO. B I G

BIG SEA GULLS

SFO 3.5

SFO 3.2

If you do visit Pier 39, you must go to this mechanic arcade. Its a fucking waste of money but cheap thrills brah.

Everything is so vintage and quite mesmerizing. It makes me wish I was able to be there in one of the actual “Circus” during their glory days.

SFO 11

SFO 12

IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE SHOWING A VIDEO BUT IM NOT SURE. TOO DUMB FOR THIS SHIT. This “Smart editor” thingy is too modern for me. Ol fashioned me still trying to use the HTML code to embed my video.

And some geese/ducks/birds just because I love animals.

SFO 15SFO 14

So, besides pigging on the Mac n Cheetos which is absolutely god damn delicious, the only food I find laudable there is this breakfast place.

Must try: Shrimp and Grits!

I loved it so much I am gonna make my own rendition at home.

Its the kind of food you want to be eating when your boyfriend cheated on you, you lost your job, you gained 5 kgs and you want to end your life.

Eat this. Because it’s so warm, runny, cheesy and comforting that you will realise

YOU CAN’T DIE BECAUSE IF YOU R DED U CAN’T EAT GUD FOOD ANYMORE. AND THEN U LIVE. AND BE STRONG AND SURVIVE.

Will be uploading my attempt on this dish as soon as I get it up BUT THIS FUCKING WORDPRESS WOULDN’T EMBED MY VIDEOS.

Anyway I want to thank my amazing friend A and R for bringing me around in SFO. Thanks for making everything fun and memorable. :3 I appreciated your time and I want to see you again! Especially A, (because R came back to sg 2 weeks after I left. LMAO)

SFO 25.5

It costed about 40 SGD PER PERSON and I mostly only ate what I showed you in the pics above. It was really really tasty, especially the lotus rice. But my stomach can’t stomach the exorbitant prices man.

I don’t love HK so much anymore. Until the day I become rich. Till then…

its gonna be HK cafe.

SFO 29

SFO 28

A fucking big plate of fried rice + 2 toasts = 10 SGD. Stab me……..

Ok, at least they have Pret A Manger which is also overpriced. -_-

SFO 30

DON’T ORDER THIS FROM COCO ICHIBANYA IF YOU EVER GO IN HK. You will regret it.

I went back to SG and the first thing I wanted to eat was Cai Fan because I am down to earth and it feels good to only pay 3 dollars for this shit.

SFO 31

SFO 32

Not to mention my skin got better even though Singapore was so hot that even Elsa would melt. But as usual you can’t see the fucking difference because Iphone.

Guess Lycan wasn’t really looking forward to me coming back because I shaved him botak and then proceeded to paste falsies on his eyes for fun.

And also was almost going to purchase my first ever skink until I received news that the Hawk.G sponsor was pulling out, giving the boys only a week to evacuate. Which I find highly inhumane.

SFO 36

The last pic I took of them. </3 The team officially disbanded. Only March, Faded and the newcomer WL going to continue but their efforts to find a new sponsor hasn’t been going great.

SFO 37

Nonetheless I wish them all the best. And I’m gonna miss them greatly.

OK BEFORE I START CRYING. BYE.

Will be updating with another post by the end of this week.

Love ya!

Now or never

So, I had to deal with the pain of watching a teammate leave and needing to ready myself on welcoming a new one.

In case you do not know, These are the boys from HAWK GAMING. Currently tier 2 and based in KL, Malaysia.

Although I am just their “babysitter” cum Team analyst but these boys are just so endearing and I have grown to like each and every one of them. However the position 5 player has proven to be more favored by me because he says and does the sweetest things for me.

You know the law of life. The one you like the most just happens to be the one you will lose. Ha ha.

I remember on the team retreat, we were acting touristy and all, wandering into the souvenir shop where they sold some local products. I saw a coconut oil and it was freaking priced at 69.90. I only found out when I asked the cashier and thus left it at the counter cuz AINT NO BODY WASTING SO MUCH MONEY FOR SOME DUBIOUS CLEAR LIQUID THAT MAY NOT HAVE ANY HEALTH PROPERTIES AS ADVERTISED.

Went out of the shop, and suddenly he came up to me, holding the overpriced bottle in his hand. “Take it. You always treat us dinner and buy things for us. This is the least I can do for you.”

God did my heart melt into an entire soppy mess. And the part I love the most? He respects and actually take the feedback I give about their games into actual consideration and ACTION. Not just games. literally the life advices I always dish out because I am a naggy old aunty.

This post is dedicated to you CSL. The team and I wish you all the best with your career.
And as for I, I wish you can now find a balance in your family commitments and your passion. Remember to keep your promise to drop by whenever I am around!. And, yes blessings to find a girlfriend. 😛

*Yes I picked the photo where I am standing right beside him because if not whats the point. XD
