I swear I posted this on 18th of October in Instagram. Just reposting here because I know YOU will check out my blog! Hehe Nevertheless, I wish you all the best!
I can never thank you enough for everything you’ve done for me. You’re the first friend (together with WB) that made me cupcakes for my birthday! It was a great surprise! We’ve travelled to San Frans, L.A., & Seattle together. I honestly had so much fun with you & WB. I missed that trip a lot! We’ve had countless of Korean & Japanese. We attended each other’s graduation day. Thank you for being such a great host when my parents & I went to HKG. Thank you for coming to KL as well. I hope I will see you & WB next year! Happy birthday, b! I hope you have a great day! <3 <3 <3
If you have not watched About Time, I urge you to watch it as soon as possible. It was one of the best movies I’ve watched to date. A little silly and a lot more to learn about life. It talks about love. But it’s not your average romance movie. It’s about the bond a family have despite the differences among each of the members. It’s about the love a couple shares, from merely lovers to husband & wife to being parents. There’s a lot more ideas were discussed in the movie but I can’t possibly be talking about all of them right now. I love how this movie makes me think so much about life after watching it. It’s just what I needed lately. Some food for thought. The British accent was lovely. & may I just steal Rachel McAdams’ wardrobe in the movie? They were all so beautiful!
When Tim proposed to Mary in a non-melodramatic setting, Duffy asked me softly if that was good and I nodded & told him that I would like a simple proposal too. Immediately, Duffy replied “good, that’s simple!” I like how we are in sync about a lot of things. In the movie, Tim’s sister, Kit Kat, has been having a lot of problem with her boyfriend and she started drinking. After she met with an accident and with Tim & Mary’s pressure, she finally got it. She knew she had to cut that relationship off to move on. I could have been like her. When she realized she has to date someone nice instead, she thought that’s going to be boring but Mary told her that it doesn’t mean it’s going to be boring if a guy is nice. I can relate to that too. I supposed when you found the right person, you don’t think it’s boring. Things may get a little stale, but it’s not boring. In fact, you would try to look for something fun to do together. After all, it’s about the effort and commitment.
That’s quite a bit for a Saturday’s night. I’m gonna let myself sink into the thoughts about the movie and dream of London again.
Just a thought though. Maybe we all actually have the ability to go back in time to relive the moments we’ve had. Maybe that is why we experience déjà vu. That strong sense of familiarity floods over every once in a while. That exact nanosecond made you doubt if that moment was real. There, some food for thought, for you. Goodnight!
I feel that there are too many things that I need/have/want to do and I don’t have enough time to do them. To be honest, I’m pretty bad in managing my time. I’m constantly reminding myself to not procrastinate my tasks and just finish them up quickly so I can take a break sooner too. However, as soon as I finished my tasks, more tasks are coming my way. I am overwhelmed. Duffy said I need to manage my time better. I tried to make a to do list and follow through it but it’s not exactly working either.
Sometimes I felt that I’m burned out. Sometimes I’m in a daze. Sometimes I caught myself zoning out way too often.
I really admire individuals who can handle a full time job with part time study and possibly a few more part time jobs. I have no freaking idea how they can do that. I often find myself lack of rest/sleep. I fell asleep too many times on the road while driving and had to keep snacking to keep myself awake. That is also contradicting with my whole trying-to-lose-some-weight plan.
Maybe I just need a break. It’s been more than a year since I last had a proper vacation. But looking at my bank account, I resorted to pinning places I wanna go in Pinterest.
Maybe I have too many interests and too many dreams. I’m learning to set my goals one at a time. & hopefully these baby steps will help me to achieve something bigger.
Maybe I should just go back to my tasks now and stop writing here. Goodnight, people! & have a fantastic week ahead!
I have been sick since last Sunday’s night after dinner. I struggle between taking a medical leave to rest and going to work every day this week. My temperature fluctuates every day. I usually get fever in the evening after work. It hit 37.8*C on Wednesday’s night and before I went home from work, my co-workers commented that I was flushing. It was bad that night. I could feel it. Mom made me Barley and some other herbal drink but they all took a while to work. I started to get body ache since then. I am just so tired.
Before my term break, I was sick too. Duffy surprised me by bringing herbal tea “Wong Lou Kat” (王老吉) and Longan herbal tea to my house for me! He kept reminding me that I must take Wong Lou Kat first before I take the Longan herbal tea. #先苦後甜
One month later, I am now sick again. He surprised me again by delivering the exact same care package! This time he was more sneaky! He Whatsapp me that he’s already home so I FaceTime not knowing that he’s actually already sitting at the living room with my mom. He answered my call and he went “HI! SAY HI TO YOUR MOM!” and I totally went dafuq. I finally registered that in my head that he’s right here in my house. Nevertheless, he reminded me again that I must take Wong Lou Kat first before I take the Longan herbal tea. Naggy as ever but sweet as ever too. <3
Sometimes it’s all these little things in life make the happiest memories of all.
