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.

48 hours:


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.


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.

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.

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.

like a

Ive always been told by my peers who are now close enough for them to confront me, that I have a harsh unfriendly exterior. I cant help it. Regrettably though, this is something I am aware of. At least if I was ignorant about it, I could at least, fix it, right?
Honestly Ive always found myself with an inept ability to be spontaneous with new people or sometimes even with familiar ones. In other words, I am just socially awkward.  
Its not that I am uninterested, its just that I get lost for words. Of course things like these shouldnt be over analysed and thought about, but should just come naturally, but it has never really been that case for me. Ha-ha now I sound like I have a condition.
When a friend asked if I could change a characteristic about myself, my answer was almost instantaneous: To be more spontaneous.

Maybe with time.

familiar places

must.. learn..

8 days

Ah hello holidays!
It is extremely satisfying to know that I wont have to study for another few months, and I get to do what Ive been piling up in my to-do list.
Especially loads of DIY things ive been meaning to get my hands on and whip up.

What makes me beyond excited is that Christmas is coming! The most wonderful time of the year. :)

Also, I cant wait to spend more time with him. Exams had just robbed us so much time, so now no excuses! :p
The day I finished my finals, I went over, we had Nando's takeaway in the most adorable boxes, and played some xbox. Honestly, the best day in a long time.

Somehow during exams, I had this surge of inspiration to blog, like I had so much to say.
For now, I am missing my camera and how I havent been giving it some loving.

Only about 40 days till Christmas everyone!
