It’s Eid! Guess it takes more than a pandemic to take us down cos Eid seems normal here in Kuala Lumpur. How’s everyone doing in other parts of the World? Hit me in the comments!

Thank you Teaffani Catering for the delish food! Didn’t get to take photos of the rest of the Eid spread cos the tummy works faster than the mobile phone on Eid ๐Ÿ˜…

And thank you De’ Wan for the Buka Puasa Delivery ๐Ÿšš Love the ketupat daun palas and rendang. Didnt get to taste the bahulu and rempeyek cos Mom hijacked it ๐Ÿ˜‚

How was your Eid?

March 2020

It’s only Q1 of 2020 but I really feel like this year should end already. So much has happened not only at home but in Australia, Philippines, Indonesia ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ, Korea, Japan.

We lost animals, people lost their homes, Australia lost 12 million acres of land to the bushfire . Either Mother Nature is angry or we did something really, really wrong to piss the Gods.

And then there’s the COVID-19 we know nothing about except that its deadly. A piece of advice though, touch nothing not even yourself, drink up your vitamin C and always make sure you have enough food at home in case you need to be self-quarantined. And here’s a guide on How to know if you need to stay away from people :

With all that’s going on, focus on yourself, give yourself a bath and always find time for a shut eye- Alex, 6 years old Tabby Cat adopted from Paws Malaysia in 2014

Sapporo ๐ŸŒŸ

‘sssuuppppp Sapporo ๐Ÿคญ

The last time I was here, i did not do any of the touristy thigamajig in the city.

This time, we got to do the Sapporo Beer Museum and the Genghis Khan Buffet ๐Ÿคธ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

There’ s the all-you-can-drink buffet

and the all-you-can-eat buffet.

We had the all-you-can-drink buffet cos there’s just so much you can eat ๐Ÿ˜Š

It’s RM 300.00 for 2pax and also you can choose from an extensive menu of drinks from alcohol to non-alcoholic. I recommend the ginger ale ๐Ÿบ

Everything happens for a reason

Everything really does happen for a reason. We all know this but if something was written to be yours, a grade, a job, a relationship, a trip, it will always be yours and nothing in this world can prevent it from being yours except God’s will. If you werenโ€™t meant to get something, you wonโ€™t get it. Regardless of anything. Because it just wasnโ€™t written. That being said, All you have to do is keep your intentions straight, keep doing your best, keep being the best you can be and keep trusting in the fact that God’s provisions are always for our best interest. Something good always comes of something that may seem initially disappointing or bad. So donโ€™t worry. Keep that trust, do your thing, if you donโ€™t get what you wanted, keep moving, keep going. Youโ€™ll get something better or make it somewhere more worthwhile.

2018

I’ve been on a blogging hiatus since my last solo trip and it was tough to write on other things other than travels. But here I am recapping 2018 in non-chronological order.

1. Loss of two pets

Sigh

Lost my 9yo Grey (in August) and 4yo Fluffy (a week ago). They say

the love of a cat is immeasurable and so is the love left behind – Anon

Haven’t really moved on from Grey and then Fluffy happened.

2. My only indoor plant died ๐ŸŒฟ

Don’t know how this happened but it survived four months without water.

3. No luck with brown chocolate man

This hunk of a model left me. I have better luck with donuts and chocolate sprinkles.

4. Had one chocolate donut from the famous Camden Market ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

when you have achievements less than ordinary, this is a valid achievement. not only was it not an ordinary sized donut but i was also on a low-sugar diet. ๐Ÿ˜Œ Yolo.

5. Got all crazy with Konmari and The Minimalist lifestyle

Got carried away and sold (and gaveaway) half of my wardrobe and also some of my possessions. I have a roomy room now but there’s still room for improvement in the organisation bit.

6. Visited three new countries

Celebrated Eid in Sri Lanka and Maldives in June 2018. Also prolly the highlight of the year. And London, Brighton and Bath in October 2018. I would probably do Bath again since i’m archaic and I enjoy history walks.

7. Yoga

Finally decided to take up yoga and work on my anger management. Committing to Jaime’s Janzfitness classes and hopefully master that handstand I’ve always wanted to do.

5:48 a.m. Need to get out of bed and feed Alex. My furry furmate. Cat.
