    Wanna buy used books that look & feel like new?

    I’m selling off some of my books to free space in my cupboard. They’re all in the condition I bought them in, so basically literally like new. A good 95% still have their spines in tact, and I never dog-ear or fold my books. Let me know if you’re interested in any of them! (Don’t worry, they’re less than half the original price!)

    You Ain’t the Boss of Me Now

    Yup, I haven’t used this label in a while, haven’t I?  So y’all know that once I do, shit ’bout to get down. I find it hard to digest that, even when you’re a grown ass woman, you still get reprimanded by relatives about your ‘colourful’ vocabulary. Now, if you were young (say maybeee… preteen or a teenager?) I’d get it if you disapprove of cussing. But a 30-year old, engaged woman? HELL NO. It annoys me further when I get told that ‘high class people do not curse; it’s only the lower-class that do.’ WELL HELLO FROM BELOW, WHO PUT YOU ON SUCH A HIGH HORSE?? I’m not saying that…

    A New Milestone.

    Funny how life works sometimes, doesn’t it?   Truth be told, I’m still having a hard time digesting what happened. Because usually, such good luck tends to avoid me. Usually, all I ever  tend to do is dream about such an instance. But it is true.   I’M ENGAGED.    He took me to the beach, as we were there on the last day before he left about a year and a half ago. He brought me to the bit of beach by Hyatt, hugged a bit (which was nothing unusual), and then he turned to me and told me seriously that he actually had something to say. He brought out the…

    Thanksgiving 2017

    Sooo it’s that time of the year again when I look back and remember all the things I’m grateful for. And I know it’s a big contrast to my previous emotional post just weeks ago, but… never miss a chance to be grateful and remind yourself just how good life is; despite everything, no? As always, if you want to go to my previous thanksgiving posts, you can click here (oldest at the bottom, just so you know). I think it is only fair that I address this one first, judging by my previous post. Although it breaks my heart that my beloved grandfather is no longer here, I am…

    Dear Ah Koong…

    Dear Ah Koong, I thought that I’ve somewhat come to terms with your absence. However, the emptiness feels most prominent in the house. It doesn’t feel complete. Sometimes, it feels as if you’ve just gone out, and others, as if you’ve gone on holiday somewhere or something. But as the day goes on and you’re still not there, the harsh reality hits. At the dinner table, there is one less table setting. In the living hall, there is one presence missing. You’re gone.   Dear Ah Koong, We went to Swiss Garden for Poh-Poh’s birthday, thanks to uncle Darren. Even Poh-Poh admits the empty hole that is so significant, in…

    Happy Valentine’s Day

    This will be special. A few years ago, I swore never to write about this topic, because I learnt that nothing lasts forever (or rather, a few months) in a relationship. Everyone I’ve dated had proved to me that feelings and effort only lasts as long till they’ve wooed you. Then effort and any sense of romanticism ends completely because (so it seems,) the hardest and most ‘crucial’ part is done. Also, effort is effort. And it becomes tiring to keep up after a while, amirite?   For someone who grew up watching my grandparents stay so in love with each other all these years, I had my expectations. (My…

    Why I Drifted from Kpop.

    I remember when I was 18, my then-boyfriend introduced me to Winter Sonata. And it was safe to say that I got hooked after the first few episodes. I even bought the DVD set, watched the entire thing, and weeped my eyes out. It felt good to let it out and cry. Little did I know that that would be the start of my Hallyu addiction. To be honest, after Winter Sonata, I had turned to the Jpop scene, and took an interest to Arashi; Matsujun (or Matsumoto Jun, his full name) in particular. I watched the full season of Gokusen and shipped Shin & Yankumi to death. Also adding…

    Hey Y’all.

    My laptop seems to be going easier on me these days, so I’ll leave y’all with some updates that have been happening:   MY BEST FRIEND OF 19 YEARS GOT MARRIED! (And she looked gorgeous.) Yes, we literally did everything together, and the fact that she’s now wife reminds me of just how old I’m getting.  2. I’ll be honest. Throughout my years, the longest I’ve worked is at the local newspaper (The Star), and that was part time (I’ve been with them for a total of almost 10 years.. and counting). I’ve worked full-time at a good few places; but I’ve never lasted a year (usually around 5-6 months, the longest so…

    Hi.

    Yeah, hey. Just letting everyone know that I’m not dead… nor is my blog. It’s just that my laptop is ‘unwell’, so to speak. I’ve been constantly having the ‘Blue Screen of Death’ and my laptop freezes on me several times a day. So it’s a turn off really to do anything ongoing that requires quite some time on my laptop; because I have no idea when it’s going to freeze on me. And getting a new laptop isn’t particularly high on my priority list financially at the moment; because I can’t afford it, and would much rather spend the money that I do have on things that I need. Right…

    What a book taught me.

    I have just recently finished The Charm Bracelet by Melissa Hill. It’s funny because I just decided on that book by impulse at first as my holiday read, but when I went through my other books and found another possible holiday read (a Nicholas Sparks’ piece), I debated for the longest time about which to pick. But I was somehow pulled to The Charm Bracelet for some reason. It was addictive, and I found myself reading it faster than I thought I would. I had to refrain from reading it too quickly for fear of finishing it and having no other reading material on holiday. But I couldn’t help but…
