August was quite a long month, I filled it with lots of activities, with friends.
I went to museum / night festival / lego exhibition (piece of peace) / workouts with friends / holiday in Cameron highlands / aunt’s house (I last met her almost 5 years ago)
In short, August well spent with many important people in my life, it brought me so much joy.
Firestation Fitness opened their studio in August and they were open for all to join their classes for free, I invited my friend to go with me, I had a really great time in the 2 classes I attended, I did not think I would enjoy the harsh workout 45 minutes non-stop routine. If the package could be more affordable to me, I would sign up for it.
Night Festival was amazing, it was the second year Singapore having this show, but it was my first time seeing it, absolutely impressed with the light show on the museum, and it was great time spent with friends
Made a short 4 days trip to KL-Ipoh-Cameron Highlands, meeting my best friends and had such a great time, though its really short time, able to meet them gave me positive energy and I felt recharged
Able to make a trip to my aunt’s house was another highlight of this month, seeing my aunt got so thin shocked me a lot, losing my uncle in last April must be the reason, it was great to sit besides her to listen to her.
Other than the activities I did with friends / family, I got some high and low for my personal growth:
- High: For the first time I managed to complete Marichyasana D (right side) for my Ashtanga primary series
- High: I got my dividend from my investment, though it was just a small sum of return, it made me feel I made up mind to start investing last year
- Low: JLPT N1 result was out at the end of August, I failed, again, I was upset a little but it was not a big deal
I have not been running for almost 5 months long after I got into Yoga from April, I decided to signed up for Newton Challenge 2017, this year I will go for a 10km run (I did 21km last year) and I started to do some short runs to get my legs back in shape 🙂
Lastly, a small challenge for myself, I went for a movie I was never brave enough to watch alone, Annabelle 3, I think I made a big move in August :p
