Girl Talk + Good Vibes: A Luv Moon Event

Jerilyn is a gorgeous vlogger, mummy and human. I’ve known her for years, ever since she starred in a TV show with my sister Ming, but any talks you have when you’re 15 are rarely on a deeper level (apart from between a few of my closest friends, of course).

So when she invited me along to one of her Luv Moon events in Singapore, I knew it was going to be a lot of fun to get to know her, along with some old and new faces, a little better.

We all very quickly got cosy at Lloyd’s Inn and instantly wanted to move in.

Can you guess the dress code?

Ming and I went early to help her out, which wasn’t much of a chore because I love setting things up and decorating!

Double-chin (okay, at least more than 4 – I can do a scary amount) but I’m throwing sprinkles so who cares.

The idea behind the event was to thrive off each other’s gorgeous feminine energy, getting to know each other better and participating in activities to get our year off to a good, fresh and spiritual start.

We kicked things off with these babies from The Novel Encounter. They’re books that are wrapped up, with only a little description at the front to indicate what kind of book it is.

SO fun. I’d love to do a dinner party where people would determine where they sit based on which book was in front of them that they wanted to read.

I picked the thinnest book, thinking I’d be clever. But then I got such book envy after we unwrapped them – some of the books I’d heard of before and was dying to read them! That bit me in the ass.

Then, oh, the spread of food. We’d been picking bits and pieces all afternoon, but it was almost time to dig in.

Not before taking super-sassy photos, using the food as props.

Am I sensually putting a piece of cracker on my forehead? Yes. I needed something vegan (obviously), and the grapes were taken! I’m definitely rocking it though.

The next activity was my favourite. We all wrote down 3 things we wanted to let go off this year, and 3 things we wanted to bring into our lives.

I won’t dwell on what I’ve decided to let go of, but I want to bring in:

  • Positive energy & more laughter
  • Discipline for health & work ethic
  • Time dedicated to self-learning, doing new things & socialising
  • Make deeper relationships

I know that’s 4, but everyone’s lists were so good – someone had said that last one and I decided I wanted to steal it too!

If you’ve got 5 minutes (on the tube, on the loo…) it’s definitely worth writing out, regardless when it’s for. New year, new month, new week, new day. I’m tempted to make a pretty graphic from it and put it as my phone lock image so it’s always there to remind me!

To finish the day off, the most talented girl I know was persuaded to sing for us.

Ming played a rendition of Atlas Hands by Benjamin Francis Leftwich – one of my favourite songs. She’s also got a new track out soon, which she’s worked on with a couple of very talented guys, so be sure to stay tuned for it!

    another great thought-provoking post once again! i guess we all wanna be part of something bigger than ourselves in life. even as an extreme (turned ultra even more so over the past few years) introvert i suppose there’s still a part of me that desires to belong to someone or some other cause other than that of my personal interests. but the truth is if you truly care about someone or something else than he/she/it becomes very much a part of your own personal interests, doesn’t it?

    anyway, took your advice, or sort of, and went to the doc only to realise that he couldn’t give a proper diagnosis of my situation. fact is i did do my own research prior. it’s more likely gastroparesis rather than ibs he suggested. i began self medicating by taking enzymes but it’s taking a while to get the dosage right. the very first one i took had more of a psychological effect than a physical one in a sense that i thought it was so strong that i felt hungry already after a few hours, which would be a normal situation for anyone except for the fact that i was aiming to be reasonably full for approximately 24 hours. as i result i didn’t dare take another one for a couple of days before the bloating became so unbearable once again that i just had to give it another go.

    after several more days i realised one pill wasn’t really producing the sufficient effect i thought it did. i still had the feeling of indigestion so i doubled the dosage only to find that it was still not enough. when i researched further i found that the efficacy of the dosage really depends on the severity of the condition. i went from 2 to 4 to 6 and back to 4 again. as best as i could estimate i asked myself whether at least half of what i consumed was digested after a reasonable amount of time. at 4 the answer was still no so i settled on 8 last night. like who does that. and today for the first time in a long time i woke up not feeling as bloated as i normally do. but still it’s not like i feel hungry or anything so breakfast is still off the cards for now.

    sad to keep seeing all the glorious food, glorious food on your blog and not being able to enjoy them yet. i guess i’m being optimistic by using the word ‘yet’. which means i’m hoping to get back onto the food horse again someday. along with so many other things i love that i used to be able do. eat. pray. love.
