Happy birthday Ah Gong!

It was Ah Gong's birthday on 31st of August. 
So we went over to Toa Payoh to pick my grandparents for dinner nearby (:

Had wanted to settle dinner at Crystal Jade but the folks wanted Soup restaurant just next door (:
So there we were.

And the last dish that came was Soup Restaurant's recommendation,
The steamed chicken

Steam chicken meant to be wrapped with the vegetable (:
So-so to me. Maybe cause i just had my braces tightened earlier that night! I couldn't bite well.

It's my first time giving a red packet to my Grandparents. Really glad that it made Ah Gong happy (: though he called to say i shouldn't have given so much. He even called Gugu Julie to tell her about it, and she smsed me to say Ah Gong is very happy and that im a good girl (:

Don't you think small things like that brightens someone important's day is really all worth it?
What's working a little harder, doing a few more shoots, a few more advertorial post?

You know, you're not the prettiest model around but you're one of the most popular around the whole blogshopping scene. Which is odd. I thought usually the prettiest would be the most popular.

(Don't get me wrong, I think you're a pretty girl and all. Plus I'm def. Not a hater)

But I think you deserve your fame, cause judging from your posts, you're a very sweet girl :)
And I hope you'll continue blessing your family through what you do/earn !

That's really sweet!

Perhaps that's not self-praise, it's just she feels happy that she made her grandpa's day & wants t share that sense of acheivement (:

It's really great that through this blog, you spread the importance of awesome values like filial piety to your readers!

And I think that you truly deserved this so-called "self-praise" of yours because most of us usually give allowances to our parents but neglected our grandparents, as a result!

Furthermore, which of us could actually stand up and say that we have totally stopped taking allowances from our parents ever since we turned 19?

Anyway, keep up the good work Zoe and don't ever let naysayers (although I'm not referring to the 1st anonymous because she was nice and polite in her comment) keep you down! Think happy thoughts! :D

Depends on how you see it dear (: I prefer to take it as sharing than praising.

Hello Alicia! Thanks for sharing your opinions! (: I guess we dont have to be the prettiest to be popular, Patricia Mok aint very pretty but she has her forte.

So i don't think we have to be the prettiest around to be good at something, blogshops hire me probably cause they feel i suit their style and am able to carry off their pieces (:
