2 years ago, we had our whimsical wedding aka #nadskai1314.

1 year ago, I surprised you with a Maldives trip on our wedding anniversary.

This year, because I'm heavily pregnant with #nadskaijunior, we can't travel anywhere but we'll celebrate it our very own way in Singapore.

This year, we finally got our very own home. Every year is an amazing milestone with you. I know that next year, we will be celebrating with Aidan.

Thank you for loving me. Thank you for being awesome. I love you. ūüôā #nadskai1314 indeed. Always and Forever.

Happy anniversary! 3 years ago, we had an intimate ROM ceremony at the Singapore Flyer and became officially Mr and Mrs Sim (although we considered only being "married" after the Chinese wedding banquet on 1.3.14 heh)

It's been an interesting year with #nadskaihome renovations. I penned a Monday's Musings entry on Reasons Why I Love Him last anniversary, this entry still holds true! Can't wait for our developments next year, moving into our very own home!

Happy Wedding Anniversary My Love! And for the rest of you guys, Happy Deepavali LOL!

Opposites attract. This is especially true when it comes to my BFF and i.

I am reckless, she's practical. She's meticulous and neat. My room is a pigsty. I talk a LOT. She listens patiently. She's the white to my black. (Inside joke)

I am extremely flighty, she keeps me grounded. I like to think i sometimes influence her with my nonsense antics and get her to abandon her rational self at times probably much to the dismay of our husbands. She also keeps me in check most of the times. We are so different in terms of personalities but yet we go so well!

Blessed to have met her (interestingly, in unusual circumstances!)

Thank you BFF!

With the recent #InstaPurge, there were lots of hoohah over bought followers, bots, unethical users of hashtags (e.g. hash tagging irrelevant hashtags, getting likes and THEN deleting those hashtags) etc.

I personally lost a considerable amount of followers on Instagram but I've never bought followers. Come on lah, who would be so wuliao to buy followers and yet have such a low engagement rate (e.g. likes and comments on your social media posts). As someone working in Social Media, followers are a nice number but engagement rate is way more important than the number of followers to me.

As both a marketer and a blogger, I welcome the #InstaPurge, in fact, they should do this for Twitter and Facebook. Goodbye to spammy accounts, bots etc!

But honestly, come to think of it #InstaPurge is good. I've been doing "The Purge" on Facebook a couple times a year.

Sometimes I unfollow or unfriend people on my social media channels. Why so?

Here are my reasons why you should declutter your (social media) life.

1. Posts are no longer of interest

We all have those friends that overshare. Hell, I overshare all the time. You can't tell the person NOT to share aspects of their lives. That's just plain rude. (I was once told to cut down posting pictures of my husband on Instagram. WTF yo?!) Instead unfollow or unfriend (the more drastic way).

2. One may have became a "familiar stranger"

We all suffer from this problem. Probably added someone eons ago e.g. During my polytime. Which was what? 10 years ago? Hardly keep in contact, hardly interested. And read point 1.

If I don't feel comfortable with that person on my feed, I'll unfriend or unfollow. Don't judge me for that. But MY Facebook isn't a friend collector area wor.

3. Prefer to have a closer group on FB etc

Hell, I don't even add the mothership on Facebook. Just because.

4. Asshats and Negative people.

'Nuff said. People who persists on posting nasty things. Why let things like that affect you? I won't. I usually choose to agree to disagree when there is no point saying more. For those who share lots of 'hate' or negativity on their social media feeds, I choose to either unfollow (on Facebook you can unfollow but yet remain as friends) or unfriend totally.

I mean, you have a choice to share right? I have a choice to not read it right? If one can declutter their room, why not their life? I don't get the big deal about being unfollowed, unfriended, unliked.

It's that dreaded time of the year again. Christmas.

Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas. I just hate decorating shit, wrapping presents and buying presents. Sometimes buying presents can be a chore, especially if it's hard buying things for each other.

Honestly, I prefer not buying presents for Christmas. Like for Skai aka c(hubby) and I. We hardly buy presents with each other. If we do, it's usually bought in presence of each other.

Isn't buying presents for Christmas like exchanging gifts for each other? Why not just concentrate on buying presents for birthdays?

BFF and I usually just buy presents for each other (for Christmas only) by asking each other to choose a present and we'll just purchase it! For Fidel's birthday, I brought her to Sephora and ask her to just pick something.

Okay, I'm the Christmas (present) grinch. :p I don't mind buying presents for people who I know what they want. If not, it's so hard!

Anyway, here are just some presents I really dislike receiving. Well, I dunno about you but I feel that these are also presents that most people would rather not receive. Don't mind, perhaps. But rather not. I could be wrong though!

1. Photo frames.

Who gives photo frames these days? And why? They just smell of 'recycled presents'.

2. Shower gel gift set.

Unless it's an interesting flavour that you know I'll like, it would just be 'Oh it's an easy present'. I did buy a Philosophy Shower Gel set for Esther for her birthday though! But it was a birthday themed present and I know Esther likes pretty packaging!

3. Weird ornaments.

Probably would look more like souvenirs. Some weird chopstick set? It'll just be clutter.

4. Stuffed toys.

Unless you are below 15 years old.

5. Coupons.

WHY? Seriously just give me chocolates instead!

6. Apparel.

Unless you know what the person wants, it might not fit. Then it'll be troublesome to get it exchanged.

Here are some tips on giving better gifts.

a) Ask.

Find out what the person wants.

b) Vouchers.

Sephora vouchers, Taka vouchers works well. Let the person choose what they'll like.

c) Food.

Let's be honest here, sometimes it's basically just a small token for Christmas. One gives because, it's the thing to do. A little chocolate or snack would be easy. While boring, you can hardly go wrong here. Unless that person has a nut allergy or something.

Okay fine. Call me the Christmas presents grinch. I know I am. Why not, let's skip the presents and just have a good meal together? My colleague was saying I'm in a Grumpy Cat mood. LOL
