Meant to be

This is meant to be a happy post, considering what a bad day I had at work. Sometimes, office politics are inevitable and as much as you try to keep a low profile, there will always be some people who will try to make your life difficult. I am praying for favor and that I will glorify all that I do to God, be it my actions or my words. Col 3:23-24 is a great reminder for me at this point.

Okay moving on, I recently did a layout based on the August Challenge at OUAS with a seasonal theme. I decided to focus on the season, summer. Here in Singapore, we have no seasons and all year round, it feels like summer. But over the course of June Hols, I was fully immersed in how people live out their summer days in Canada. We were fortunate enough to spend 10 days in Toronto and boy, do I miss that place.

Summer in Toronto was lovely. This was when you get to see flowers blooming and the bright colours brighten up your day when you first see them in the morning...

 This also means it is a perfect weather to drive down to the Falls to see one of the wonders of the world.
 It is a time for outdoor dining where it makes sense to hang out in the backyard and indulge in good food.
 The food was simply delicious with a mix of grilled meat and grilled vegetables. My stomach grumbles even just by looking at the food.
 Summer calls for more outdoor playtime which means getting dirty and just having fun. (:
 Most importantly, it calls for good family bonding where the family sits around and enjoy each other's company.
 
 This layout sums up my take on the summer season I got to experience in a country far away from Singapore. My heart yearns to go back even though the jet-lag will kill me. Maybe in a couple of years time, I will make it across the world again. Happy Thursday! (:
