Home Improvement

Moved in with le bf in April.

The house is a double storey low cost terrace house, so we don't have a back door, literally.
You imagine the usual terrace house, then that usual terrace house is cut in half, and the back door of that usual terrace house is the front door of another house. Macam townhouse but we're connected back-to-back not upstairs-and-downstairs lah. Anyway, you don't care, so let's move on.

We stay at Bertam area of Kepala Batas, which has a LOT of Taman. The area is quiet me like-y. One of the best thing about this move is that, le bf opens a furniture store, so our house was furnished pretty quickly with supplier-priced furnitures haha! And the quality is good too yay!

However, the down side about low cost housing is that, the flooring is cement floor. You know, like the floor in your classroom. My tolerance of things is quite high but not this one.



The thing about cement floor is that, no matter how many times you mop the floor, it feels dusty aft…

New Niece: Yao 瑶

Let's revive this blog for awhile~ I miss blogging! I miss writing (casually)!


I have a new niece!!

OK she's already six month old by now, consider throwback lah hah!

Chen (my sister and the mother of the new niece) asked my mom to help in her confinement month, to cook, to do laundry and what not. Her MIL helped during her first born but she couldn't make it for this one so my mom is up. Since I was in the middle of correcting my thesis, I promised to go along as assistant when my correction was done.

Her expected due was supposed to be on the end of Feb, which was few weeks after CNY. Everyone already planned their things. I too already planned my things.
Finished correction in two weeks - go to KL.

However, thing took an unexpected turn.

On the 19th 7am, Chen messaged on our group chat saying her tummy hurts and she will go to the hospital after drop off her first kid Xuan at nanny. Two weeks early!!!

I told Sing (le new bf) about it and that I might have to go to KL two…

Wang Gunung, Sungai Batu Pahat, Perlis

Image
Phew~ Now that I've finished all my thesis shenanigans and ready to submit for viva, let's get started with the overdue blog posts!!


A very super awesome hike!!

Distance: 9.5km
Moving time: 3 hours
Elevation: 500m

Verdict: One of the toughest hikes I've been to, and I haven't been to that many hikes LOL. It is tough and challenging but doable, the view is definitely to die for. I would really LOVE to visit again.

A little info about Wang Gunung: It is located at Sungai Batu Pahat, for those who familiar, its entrance is nearby the Taman Ular the golf club area. A permit is necessary, do take note of that. The permit can be obtained at Perlis Forestry Department for RM5/person. The hike actually criss and cross on the Malaysia-Thailand border, which is very interesting to me. It is considered challenging and tough, some trails require very steep climb with rope (not technical), so glove and a pair of good gripping shoes are highly recommended. More info from here.

Series Review: Person of Interest

Image
Let me start with this statement:
'BEST SHOW EVER'
Period.

Harold Finch: "Sooner or later both of us will probably wind up dead. Actually dead this time. I said I'd tell you the truth. Didn't say you'd like it." (Pilot, S01E01) Person of Interest (POI) ended in 2016, 5 seasons, 103 episodes.

This is a long overdue post, I've been keeping this draft for 2 years now, finally the time to publish it lol.

POI is a show about a super computer, a ASI (artificial super intelligence), that assisted a geeky billionaire Harold Finch and the ex-army super macho dude John Reese helping people and catching bad guys.

Started off as a 'concerned third party', because the computer only gives them social security number, they don't know if that person is a victim or perpetrator, so they would often follow and track down that particular person (one or few persons each episode), jump right in when the person is in trouble and say "you don't know me …

Heartbroken

Image
It was a rough break up for me.
Nothing ugly but it hurts me so much. Pains me a lot.
At the beginning, I cried myself to sleep.
People asked me to stop looking at the pictures, stop reading the blogs, stop checking him online.
Easier said than done.
I see friends feel helpless seeing me so down.
I can't even imagine how my mom feel when she sees me crying.
I am a cry baby, but I've never cried in front of her because of some guy.
I was as cool as a rock when it comes to talking about the end of a relationship.
But not this time.

I intentionally frequently upload my pictures on Instagram and Facebook.
Just to let him see what he has missed out.
What he has given up on.
I am your goddess, am I not?
Now, It has become 'I was your goddess'.
I thought I will feel better, but I am not.
I am just tricking myself into believing this is how I'm gonna feel better.
At the end of the day, I feel lonely, empty and void.

I used to be so scared of updating my Instagram.
It often…

2D1N Kuala Terengganu Weekend Getaway

Image
Had a short trip over the weekend with my buddies at Kuala Terengganu, about 150+- km away from my hometown, Kota Bharu, 3 hours driving distance.

FY took the bus from Perlis to KB, arriving at 4.30am, and we both drove to KT at the ungodly hour early in the morning. There's very very few cars, some roads don't even have lamps that was pretty horrifying, and we arrived safely at Seok's house 3 hours later.

Seok is a lecturer at Unisza, she owns a house in KT, comfy, spacious and minimalist, so her place is our accommodation.

Thanks to her too, we don't have to plan anything, just let her bring us around woohoo!
