A greater need, a greater responsibility

Recently I've been tied down to settle one big fat problem.
As most people know, I've gotten my BTO flat, at Clementi. It was the one BF & I really hoped to get, and under high competition (4 families fight for 1 unit)

Lady luck stood by us. 
I couldn't contain the happiness when I got the news. 

But soon after, I got slammed with reality.

How are we going to pay for the downpayment?

Thus, I've been thinking really hard. Money, its never easy.
My head is in a blur now. Thankfully, I do have ways to settle it, even if it means having to take a loan.
The best people to thank have to be my bosses.
Its not yet a year I'm in the firm, but their support and advises, are priceless.

I want to look forward to what we have now, and we can have for the future.
Juggling finances is never easy. 
But I want 'us' to strive through this together. 
Happiness doesn't come easy.
Contentment comes after hard work.

Let's work hard, my husband-to-be.
I want to have our kids live in a comfy home.
Somewhere they will wanna slack in during weekends.

Keep the passion burning, they say.
I'll keep passion burning, in reality.

Taking a breather

Taking a breather away from some stacked work in the office.

So many things to do and so little time!

In anyways, things are well so far. Nothing much to complain about.
Just received my ballot letter from HDB, got a mini fright thinking it was THE letter to determine if I got my flat or not haha.
Fingers crossed!

Once I got the flat, I'll be off to start preparing for a wedding to come.
This kinda frightens me actually. The amount of money + time... All for the 'face' of our parents.

Trying to stay positive! Its a new phase of life, and I am excited to decorate my house haha.
And adopt a doggy :D

And so, a self encouragement: WHHHHHHHHHHHHHEEEEEEEEEEEEE.
