This is my clip. Hope you'll bear with some awkward moments.

golden hour



family, Christmas morning at church :) 

i was young



Christmas dinner with these people :)
A yearly routine that everyone takes the effort to arrange.
I wonder when will be the day that all of us will get to celebrate Christmas together, again.
Dinner at Ben's KLCC. Cosy :)

let it snow



Christmas passed so quickly!
Though some might still feel the whole "12 days of Christmas thing", for me after the day itself, I sort of feel all sad that its over, but still a little thankful for another celebration: new year's eve. Best when accompanied with fun loving people to usher in a new year.

Christmas has never been a super extravagant event for me.
The main things were family dinner on the eve, church the morning itself and that was it. of course opening presents which comes before, in between or after.
Still, I love Christmas. The mood everyone gets in is just such an amazing aura to be around with. Definitely not forgetting why we celebrate Christmas in the first place of course!

This year Ive received so so many gifts that mean so so much to me.
Some the typical but sweet purchased items, some handmade with love, some totally unexpected plus surprising, some that were thoughtfully purchased because they know me too well, some that left me speechless but happy till I could die.

I am so fueled with excitement right now I could even start the semester next week and go on full steam.

Make the most of the next 4 days people!

snippets

A brief summary of my 6 day trip to Singapore.
Needless to say, just like everything else, the entire trip passed super quickly; though, it is comforting to be at home in my own room.
Took Aeroline, a bus, to Singapore. My second time travelling alone. The first when I was 17 and I had to take a plane from Penang back to Selangor on my own.
I liked that I had a variety of shows to choose from, maybe about 50?



The first thing I ate was the MOS burger. The last time I had it was exactly a year ago with Adrienna when I met up with her in Singapore, also on the 10th of December!
We remember because we took a polaroid together and I labelled it "10th December 2010".
Maybe this burger will be a yearly affair. I hope Malaysia has them soon!
This was a rice burger btw, compacted rice instead of the bun. Like a sushi burger combo.


Was walking around when we passed a shop with some very strong soothing scents.
The minute I turned and saw the products on display I knew where I was without even needing to look at the shop's signboard. LUSH.
Ive always heard of it and was so excited to know that Singapore had an outlet!
Everything was pricey but just being inside made me happy. I will be back. I promise.


Then dropped by Typo (also available in Malaysia).
3 alphabets for $10. 1 for $5.95.
So obviously I decided on getting 3 alphabets.
Wanted to get more of the decos like the ones above but my sister shot me a look and I had to rest my case. Sigh. Like I said, I will be back.




Also super happy when I bought these!
3 for $5 !



$1. Of course, I made sure I had this while I was there. Infact I went back another day to have another :D
A block of ice cream wrapped up in bread. Despite how simple that must have sound to do it on your own at home, trust me, it does not taste the same.

Pictures from the camera hopefully up soon. Im too lazy to even finish unpacking.

lullaby




Have been feeling very disheartened and discouraged lately.
Its not something I can even do with.
I think the worst problems are the ones you cant solve.
The worst problems are also the ones that you cant get the words out to share it with someone but pains you to leave it ingering inside.

pessimism

There are so many things that we should be and can be appreciative of, and there can be endless possibilities of a chances, outlooks, and ways if we’d just let ourselves.


 Pessimism.

There can be a perpetuate number of things that can go wrong, seemed flawed, broken. If we’d always think, why this, why that, why can’t i; the only reason why is because it is already rooted. Pessimism is not pretty. It drowns you, corrupts you and puts you on the opposite side of the magnet, repelling everyone else.


Pessimism.

Something entirely detested. Something entirely testing to do away with.

countdown begins




where we've said we would go since forever and finally did.
is it weird that i could not help myself to these floral bunnies and that i have absolutely no idea what to do with them? funny thing is that when my mom amusingly tried to shove my question of "which should i get?" to my dad, he just said, "why get one? you should get the whole collection". haha! two will keep me company :) although im already thinking if i should get the other three mmmmmmm.

in the midnight hour

some words are embossed in your head,

some images stilled,

some memories linger.

stamped, marked.

bits and pieces

when one thing seems to hold you steady, comforting to know that you'd have somewhere to go even when things seem just, wrong-













can also be the very thing that will rip you apart.

truffles

48 hours:

Sunday:

A road trip with the parents up north to Ipoh to visit a durian/rambutan orchard.
Stuffed myself with durian and stuffed mosquitoes with my blood.
Not a big fan of durian but I dont hate it. Makes me feel dehydrated though. And I like bitter durians.







The view right outside the house.
and non riped durians.
Also entertained myself with watching chickens run around aimlessly and eating durians (i kid you not) while my parents chatter away in chinese.





Monday:

Met up with Adrienna after almost a year despite being in the same uni.
Always a nice serene catch up.
We had a very fancy tea party for two at Delicious.
The food made us giddily happy although we were painfully trying to finish the rest of the very good food by the end of it.
A little pricey, but its okay, a meet up like this calls for a celebration! :)





Her peppermint tea and my chamomile tea

Our triple tier:
Choice of any two cups of teas (as above)
Choice of any cake on display (Brownies!)
Warm scones with preserved jam and pure cream 
Strawberry chocolate dip 
Hand rolled Chocolate Truffles
Finger Sandwiches (Tuna, Egg & Salmon!)
Duck confit in filo pastry

Tuna sandwich and duck confit


scones that ive been madly craving for. but was the most feeling one out of the lot.



macaron looking egg sandwich with some caviar




ahhhh :)

yellow diamonds


I was asking a few friends today what were their OCDs.
I was quite surprise of how quickly they answered. I never noticed my OCD before. Of course minor OCDS do occur like how I like to wipe away dust whenever I see it accumulating on my laptop table or if something falls, id put it back up. But no, I am talking about hardcore OCDs.

For instance, I have an irritating habit of going to the toilet, although there is no need to. Mind you, not for the mirror.
So, im wondering, what OCDs do you have?


oh and btw, today I also found out how my friend would go through all the trouble and pain to splash him/her self with water and stand infront of the fan so that he/she will fall sick and get excused from school the next day just because he/she did not finish his/her homework.

I have such a bizarre friend. hehehehehehe <3

those boring rants #26





The new Starbucks planner seems nearly impossible to get, either purchasing 15 drinks (something like that) or buying it for RM88 which is absurd.
Id have to forgo my hope of getting it this year. I admit, it is rather an expensive item for me to accumulate over the years now that I have 3 of the planners but I really really adore Starbucks's merchandise. The previous years were much easier to collect the book compared to this year's :(
Im not sure if I should consider it as a Christmas wishlist because the book to me, has some downsides.
I liked having plain pages for me to scribble and jot down notes but now its all divided with margins for each date. & it would be impossible for me to write long notes. I guess you'd have to see it to understand what I mean. I thought I would mind that it was no longer the binder style (like having punched holes) but I dont, I think i quite like that it is not. Also because it is just too dam expensive and I would feel that it would be such a waste of money for anyone to have it gifted to me.

Time to search for new planners then.

Ecstatic that Christmas is 32 nights away.
The best time of the year. : )

Happy holidays everyone :)

cuts like a knife


Im not sure if everyone has them, but I frequently have snippets of events in my life embedded in my head. It may or may not be significant. Sometimes I remember the smallest things or occurrence that has no particular meaning but can picture it exactly as it happened at that very moment. Every detail. Im not sure if this is what would be defined as photographic memory but somewhere close to that maybe. In moving shots.

Today I remembered this particular scene. One of the most profound and heavy memory ive had to carry with me. I remember how itd happen, when itd happen, what was conveyed and everything else. A memory I cannot forget even if I wanted to. Sometimes I wonder how I can bear with this burn in my head as if everything communicated at that time did not hurt me now as much as it did at that time.

In spite of this, though past events have been for the better, I cannot lie that it gets me every time it pops into my head. It is hard to block words, actions, notions that seem so simple and brief but cuts like a knife.

daze













An outing planned wayy before finals even started.
The three of us bought a Groupon offer in August but due to the popularity of the deal, we could only get an appointment all the way in November! Crazyy.
But who wouldnt want a classic manicure & pedicure with nail art, scrub, hair wash and styling at RM36?
Headed to Bangsar Village shopping center for lunch at Ben's General Food Store (like!). My first time in the mall and I would say my first real walk around Bangsar itself. All my other visits were brief and short, that I barely spent 15 minutes in the area.
Then, to the Curve/Ikano for some shopping and desserts that Sarah decided to treat us to :D

Good day.
