Currently still in hibernating mode after my trip to Singapore. Before that, there was also our department’s team building 😆

Need rest after all that socializing and moving about 😴

Despite feeling a bit out of it and kinda staying within my comfort zone, today was a good first full day at Singapore.

I’ll do my best in the next coming days to get over my fear and just try out food at a hawker centre. 😆 I’m now more prepared and have actual cash in hand just in case hahaha

I am technically here for Figma Config APAC as well, so I’ll just do a bit of design stuff on the side 😁

@rom I already got to try an Apple Vision Pro during a meetup we had last May about the UX of Spatial Computing hehe it was super cool!

I ended up getting an EZLink Card instead because I'm not really that inclined to go to the "touristy" spots just yet 😆 but I am gonna be walking around some of them haha

Going to Singapore later! 😄 First time ever. I’m setting up ways for me to take notes down both online and offline, in the hopes of having enough notes by the end of my trip to gather my thoughts and make myself a highlights recap. 😆

finally finished sorting through the stuff I hauled from my old unit! There’s still a big pile and bags of clothes that are set aside, but at the very least they’re all bundled up together. The rest of the things have been sorted to either trash, or for keeping somewhere. 😆

I’ll also be at Singapore by the first week of July, because I’m attending Figma Config APAC 2024 in-person 😄 Will be my first time in Singapore, so I’ve been asking around for recommendations on things to do. Am also gonna be working remotely there, but contemplating if I should just file the rest of the... chisenires.design

The past month or so has been super hectic! But part of getting back to routine (for me) is also posting on this side of the internet, hence why I’m here again! 😆

I want to eventually figure out a better way to manage my fediverse posting :)) but for now, this’ll have to do

@val Hello! Thank you! And yeah my birthday already passed 😆 I was sick during my actual birthday though so the most I got to do was rest then 😅

As for my parents, I just hope they'll come around... It's already here, and if they try to force me to do anything I will most likely retaliate. Fortunately though, it seems like most of my worries were in my head and everything seems OK so far!

Chi looking at the camera and smiling while at her home workstation, consisting of two monitors mounted on monitor arms, an iPad propped up, and a Macbook Pro elevated with a laptop stand in the middle of her two monitors. On her desk is her split keyboard, her trackball mouse which Chi is holding, and a full deskmat. The chair Chi is sitting on is still a normal dining chair, not her computer chair. Her setup is facing the window, letting natural light in.

My home office setup is (almost) complete 😁

(almost because I haven’t moved my computer chair from the old place yet 😆)

📷 Day 22: blue #mbApr

Taken last 24 June 2022. Second to the last gig I got to attend of Banna Harbera performing. They stopped putting new music out later that year too, but I was thankful I still got to attend some of the gigs when they were still playing. 🥹

Banna Harbera performing at the 2022 Fête de la Musique Philippines. Both the main vocalist and lead guitar and vocalist are lit in a cool blue hue. Both of them are focused on singing the song, as shown in their expressions.

📷 Day 21: mountain #mbApr

Took a photo of this mountain while riding a taxi with other tourists who were also figuring out how to get to Jioufen 😆 Taken last April 10, 2023!

A mountain covered with vegetation near Jioufen in Taiwan. A small thin cloud is seen on the tip of the mountain. A bus is seen on the right side of the photo because Chi took this as she was seated on the front passenger seat while going up the road.

📷 Day 19: birthday #mbApr

My birthday’s coming up soon. Throwback to this gift the WeWork staff where I used to co-work at gave me 😁🍷

A wine bottle is on a marbled countertop with a greeting card in front of it. The text reads, "A note from our community team: Chi! Happy birthday Daryl, Paul, Hazel, & Sumana"

This horse/donkey statue is a mood after the events of this week. 😆

A gray horse or donkey statue lying down on the grass, with its legs up in the air, and seemingly basking in the sun.

@jedda yeah, it felt kinda weird to do the recording, but I wanted to test out the speech-to-text feature 😆 It felt like I was trying to speak up in both an empty room and a room full of people 🙈

I periodically delete photos and videos though. Do you do the same? :))

@jarrod that's unfortunate 😢 were you looking at the headliners? 😆 I wanted to get a wayfinder that had transition lenses, but Amazon still also doesn't have stock for it yet. On the Meta site though, seems like they have stock, but that was the other day 😅
