Nothing else ever seems to hurt like the smile on your face, when it’s only in my memories.

Pictures snatched out the frame
Bitch I scratched out your name,
and your face,
What is it about you that I can’t erase?

Say something

Feels like I’m spiraling down again

And yet again there is but no one to catch the fall

And yet again I feel,

I feel the need to relive the moments

I wish I didnt want to at all

It’s sad to say I still care, I will always care

You were my first and I hoped only.

Ok so one of my new year resolution was to read the newspaper almost every day.
Now I’m thinking, maybe I can blog about some of the articles that I read? I said maybe.
Anyway most of the articles would be food science/safety related.
So this is the article ft my 80 cent kopi.

It’s about high tech farming.Vertical vegetable farms are being used as it provides higher yield when compared to traditional farming. The article talks about Sustenir Agriculture, an indoor farm which produces about 54 tonnes of vegetables a year which is highly efficient considering the small space they are working with. They grow imported varieties like the Tuscan kale and arugula .This reduces the need to import these vegetables thus lowering the carbon footprint*.

The vegetables are grown in rolling racks about 3m tall and are packed together for maximum light absorption from LEDS. The vegetables are also tube fed with nutrients and CO2 comes out through the air con ducts.They are grown and harvested withing 2 weeks which is half the time needed compared to the outdoor farms that grow vegetables under normal conditions(Sustenir Agriculture grows the vegetables between 14 to 22 deg C). They also stay fresh longer than produce imported from overseas.

Growing crops in a controlled environment has its own advantages such as lower carbon footprint and reduced water wastage.

Also, Singapore’s consumption of local produce has increased from 7% in 2010 to 12% in 2014 according to AVA.

I guess it’s good that thereĀ  is a shift from traditional farming to high tech farming especially since Singapore has little land space.

Also with a global population that is projected to increase by a billionĀ  by 2050, we definitly have to resort to more efficient and high yielding methods to feed all the extra mouths. lol Food Security** uh.

 

*A carbon footprint is defined as: The total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support human activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (CO2)

**Food security [is] a situation that exists when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their dietary needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life

Silence

Done with my specialist dip. Done with my interview. I have all the time in world right now. Too much time tbh. I really prefer being busier and occupied. Prefer being stressed about shit. Prefer having something to look forward to.

My head’s  too silent right now. You know what they say bout an empty head, it’s the devil’s workshop.

It’s 130 am and I can’t sleep.
All those thoughts I’ve worked so hard to push away are slowly creeping back in. I don’t want this.

Doppelganger

My heart literally skipped a beat. For a second there I really thought I saw you. The height. The hair. The facial hair. The posture. You. I was like 95% sure and then I remembered that you were in a foreign land halfway across the globe. Also, the legs. This dude had straight legs lol.
Then it got me thinking. How the fuck would I have actually reacted if it really was you? Would I have ran? Or would I say hi? Just thinking about how I’d react made me kinda tear. Lol fuck. I hate it when my eyeballs get all sweaty in public. Like WHAIIIIII.
Anyway. Whatever. I shall not think about how I’d react cause comeon I probably won’t bump into you for another year or yearssss. There’s no reason why our paths would cross in the near future.

Bittersweet

Today I chanced upon our old messages.
(I used to do this creepy thing where I’d email myself a copy of the chat transcripts.  Yes there’s a function on whatsapp that does this upon request)
The convos literally brought tears to my eyes. We had a connection. We synced. We laughed. We had a lot of inside jokes. I thought we had everything. The chemistry was there. It was all so obvious. Looking at it was bittersweet. You were not the same person since things changed. I miss that person. I miss 2012/13 and half of 2014 us. We zinged.

How did we go from that to this?
