Hi guys, the bum is back.

*throws confetti*

It's been awhile huh.

Well, it's November already. I don't know if I should be happy or not.
In case, y'all didn't know but my birthday happens to fall on 15 November.
Which means, it's just around the corner.

I removed my birthdate on Facebook. And I wonder who would genuinely remember this year.
I just don't get the sudden influx of attention by people I have never spoken to yet are friends on Facebook for years, wish me Happy Birthday. I guess they have to, out of formalities. So to save them all these trouble, they don't have to know and see my birthday on the side panel. I know I'm not giving a good and convincing reason, but basically, important people who care will know.

And that's enough for me.

According to people, it's not supposed to be any ordinary birthday because I'm turning 21 this year.

And.... as boring as this is gonna sound, I don't intend to do anything.

Depressing, isn't it? 
Yeah, don't I sound like a boring person to you right now?

Well, I do have ideas but I just don't think they're gonna work out.
Sucks that my birthday falls on a Thursday this year.
Would love to throw a party, but I hate cliques.
Would love to have a simple gathering, but I hate cliche.
Would love to just have dinner, but I hate boring.
Would love to party, but I hate going through motion.
Now, I would love to skip my birthday but I'd regret.

If I really could, I'd wanna celebrate my birthday overseas.
Actually I wanna migrate. Been listening to Boston by Augustana.
I can relate to the girl in the song so much about going somewhere wear no one knows my name,
and start all over again, but that's just a lil' selfish isn't it?

I wish I'm just a lil' more brave when it comes to following my heart.

Early birthday present from my mom. 
I was really excited before I got it, now that I have it, I am not thrilled at all.
It seems the same as iPhone 4, just with better camera.
Shopped way too much and gonna continue to do so, just to make myself feel better.

Ok, till then.

The boring bum is gonna do some online shopping now.

Thanks for reading the bum's boring post.


  1. hi! where did you get your maroon pullover from?

  2. Dear Irina,

    Today is the day you were born, 21 years ago.

    So I wanted to take a moment to wish you a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    My birthday was on a Thursday this year too. So I know this limits your immediate celebration options, but I hope that you get spend your day doing things you enjoy with people that you love. Even if only for a few hours.

    I would have sent you something to cheer you up in the midst of Jeremy's enlistment... but... I have no idea where to send it other than Singapore. LOL
    So instead I'll treat the both of you to dinner and good times during one of my future SG trips.

    Have an unprecedentedly happy day. =]



    1. Thank you so much, James!
      You're always so thoughtful and sweet! Though we haven't met, I'm really thankful to have a cyber friend like you. You make more effort than some of the friends I have and I really appreciate that. If sending joy is possible, you'd receive tons of my share from Singapore!!

      And I see you've already found love! I'm so happy for you :-)
      Best wishes from me yeah. All the best!!!!

      Hear from you soon.

  3. hello! where did you get your ash wash grey pullover from?
    thank you :)

  4. Can share the link here? :) grey pullover!

    1. Alrighty!!!! Here you go:

  5. hello! is it okay if you share the exact seller's gmarket page? i want to take a look at the shorts heh. it's okay if you dont want to! :)

    1. Hey there!!

      Hmm, I'll try my best to find. If you've been to gmarket, you'd realise there are gazillion of shops around so I'm not very sure which shop specifically either. Will try to track it if I could when I'm free :-)

  6. oh! anyway i think you are very pretty and i love looking at you modelling for runway bandits! i think you suit their clothes very well. love your own style too!! :)
