My day in words

It doesn’t matter if it rains a lot or just a little today. It feels just right to only sneak back in bed, pour a cup of tea, switch on the telly, forget about the last paper tomorrow and stretch a bit. But this will not do - it's pretty too late. The after exams thoughts have kicked in, and what I have got to do is to breathe and live life a little, only in slow motion.

It's been some time, and I could promise myself a pastry picnic breakfast, penne with sauce plucked from the air with a lot of tomatoes and smoked salmon with tomato bruschetta... Their presence I simply miss. It had been a tough struggle with school, complaints nonetheless, and I worked things out pretty well to say. Now if I were to scribble a list to complete this holidays, I would...

1. Complete e-commerce site designs
2. Have a safe flight to Hong Kong
3. Manage something special in December for you guys ♥

I hope I don't disappoint. Let us pray for better days ahead! Can't you tell I'm getting all excited already...

P.S: I enabled subscription through RSS feeds on the sidebar on the left - which means updates straight to your mailbox! Happiness at its best.

Asian B.Pepper Chicken w/ Pasta

Exam mess is here and I can’t seem to calm myself down – Fact that I over-prepared for an econs paper (which pretty much deserved it by the way) and under-prepared for my 2 other written papers – sends me constant anxiety attacks. But these 2 days will just fly by, and I my next 5 weeks, a well deserved break, and a Christmas vacation. I cannot honestly wait.

November has been a fruitful month despite all the dark clouds looming. Justin’s 22nd birthday just passed in a jiffy, and also marks our first year together since we were friends 5 years ago. My calendar was jam-packed with all the schedules and study plans I have for myself I barely found time for my lack-of-attention boyfriend, and I’m sorry for that. I hope I have made it up and it would be as bleak, at least for the next 2 years to come.

So last Thursday, in the midst of studying for my econs, I scurried to make a home-cooked meal before he returns from work. And it’s always nice to watch the look on his face, the love you return home for – priceless. This dish I call, Asian Style Stir Fried Black Pepper Chicken with Angel-hair Pasta.

See you all, in 2 days :)

Gardens with Dad

Losing steam in my study-streak. 2012 deserves a pretty good closure with a new beginning. It's been more than a month since my dad left again. It's queer how I start to miss him more especially when I grow older. The memories, the affections... Sometimes silent, more often than not, salient.

The last 2 days had been pretty goofy. I had my first bad encounter presenting to a panel of marketing personnels... Despite accomplishing what I've set out to do, this was almost the first time in Uni that I've ever felt so mediocre in front of everyone. For the good and the bad. I gotta get back to work...

Happy Deepavali

At Pov's :)

We have different strengths, and strengths that vary in the process of creating our identity. More often than not, we put up tough fights with the daily mental struggles, our hearts racing like a cyclotron. The unrelenting ice-storm will pass and the day will come, again. Here I am, like any other. I don't want to stop trying, I don't want to stop at the weight that feels heavy just because I couldn't breathe. Sometimes we make mistakes in life, but because we were blinded by the things we thought we believed in, things that we thought were once beautiful.

Life is not a bed of roses, neither is school work a string of 'A's. I've placed this comfort so close to my heart to rationalize the reason behind my failure, and the reasons why I can only be mediocre. Yet I'm trying, and I want to make a difference, that the once-destroyed gets a chance to re-live a beautiful life. As poppies wither, seasons change... They will finally grow and blend into the picture perfect world again. Everyone deserves a second chance.

Self-proclaimed day of rest today, and am glad Asian Marketing module is officially over yesterday. Now onto Econs - Thst I'm giving myself the second chance. I will not be defeated, and I will stand tall. I could really need a full body massage and face revitalization right now. Too worn from everything :(

The skin and blue

I was inspired, and how I unraveled my site name back in 2010, that December will always be New. Who doesn't like Decembers? This year in 2012, I decided that I shall venture into something that my daily offerings was all about. Sleep, work, travel, gym and fun. A soft launch will be launched in the coming December before I leave for Hong Kong, then again it's all about the moment of inspiration, and the risk analysis that comes after. I can't thank my family, friends and Justin for being more supportive than this.

Till then, stay tuned! I promise.

Amara Sanctuary

Last weekend, I attempted to surprise Justin for his early 22nd birthday celebration at Amara Sanctuary after my marketing paper but failed terribly nonetheless. But I'm glad everyone was happy which reaallyyy made my day. I have to thank my family, aunts, friends and cousins for preparing the food, prepping the check-in and everything else. I cannot thank them enough for helping me with this wonderful preparation.

My aunt made her home-made nasi-lemak which was pretty kickass and everyone else loved it! She's currently taking in orders, if any of you are interested, please drop me an email :) On another note... I was honestly too excited about his birthday during my paper that I just wanted it to end, so badly. Half of his friends ended up in the pool at night, and the other half just gossiping on the sun-bed. The next morning, we woke up happy.

Thank you for being worth it, thank you for holding my hand to walk me out of the shadows during my darkest. I couldn't have done it without you, and I couldn't have done it better. Thank you my love.

P.S. Follow me on instagram (on the left panel) if you haven't!
