Free

It won't be long before I am released from this kind of feelings. I'm tired of relying on other people especially when all they do is demeans you.
Soon we will be free. I promise.

Double shot

Because one Roost in a day is just not satisfying enough. All in all, Roost Juice + Bar will always be my favourite.


Sneak peak

It was a lazy Saturday. Sunny afternoon. You're still lying on your bed. Browsing through the web. It's do or die and from where you were standing, you know that you'll be in a comma but you rather not think of it. You don't feel good but you don't feel too bad either. Whatever happens, you don't want to give a single f.
Suddenly the phone rang... you've made a mistake that no one else can rectify. Oh no. There goes your weekend. And you found yourself crying while getting ready to work on your supposedly only rest day for the week.
It has been a month and you're still wondering what's ahead. This is just the beginning of a hectic life you were trying to avoid. A sneak peak. The rain before the storm.

2009/2013 : Bas

2009
Kelas pagi memang merimaskan. Bas paling awal pukul 7.30am. Bas seterusnya selepas setengah jam. Perjalanan dari kolej ke fakulti makan masa 15 minit. Kalau naik bas kedua akan lambat sampai dan mungkin tak dapat masuk kelas.
Keluar dari blok dah nampak bas dari pusat pengangkutan menuju ke hentian. Cuba pecut dengan segala kudrat sampai di belakang bas pintu tertutup tapi bas belum bergerak.
Bagai histeria berlari lagi, terus ketuk pintu bas... nasib baik pemandu bas perasan dan bagi kami masuk. Histeria kot, takkan tak perasan?

2013
Dah pukul 6.05pm. Jam sistem pejabat lambat 5 minit maka selama-lamanya lah lambat keluar pejabat walaupun sepatutnya masa kerja habis pukul 6.00pm. Siapkan kerja yang ada, cepat-cepat kemas meja, keluar dari pejabat tapi, erk, kenapa boss keluar saing?
Dalam lif berbual ringan. Dalam hati debar fikir, sempat ke nak kejar bas 6.30pm. Kalau tak sempat terpaksa tunggu pukul 7.00pm. Lambat sangat tu.
Lepas Asar rasa nak pakai lipstain dulu sebab bibir r…

The Intouchables [2011]

One of the most successful French movies. It's funny and heartwarming. How a challenge changed two men's life. From total strangers with different social background become friends. The fact that it's based on a true story is a plus point. I'm such a sucker for true stories. I really enjoyed it. 

Lunch Hour : SDS Classic

SDS Classice, JB City Square



Groupon first timer. I always second guess myself when it comes to buying vouchers online. Reservation stuff and use-by dates scare me off. I bought it anyway because it seems like a very good deal. The food was okay. A little bit more oil on the spaghetti would be great though. I'm not sure why I ordered an ice blended. I'm not really into iced drinks nowadays. For RM29-00 (not including drinks), it was worth it.

Balance

You and me. And them.
When to tolerate means letting other people be the decision maker... I gave in.
I don't want to feel sad about something that should make me happy. In the end, it's not the journey that matters the most, it's the destination.

Lunch Hour : Sedap Corner

Sedap Corner JB City Square



Nasi Kukus and Sweet & Sour Fish (not the exact name) I think it's overrated and overpriced.

Paso Bumbong 2013

We came to chill but I guess it's not a good place to do so. I prefer Plaza Seni's rooftop to Galleria @ Kotaraya's. It'll be better if there's more lighting - shopping and eating in the dark is not my kind of fun. Got few books from my wishlist - Sepucuk Pistol Di Dalam Laci & Diorama Eksisten. The highlight of my day was definitely meeting up with my favourite people, the usuals; and jejak kasih moment with Azie. You guys made my day. If only you were there...









Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri

First two days at Kelantan. The next two days at Johor. Only one new baju kurung this year but that doesn't mean I'm not psyched about raya. I aim to spend all my free time visiting people or in other word, beraya. It's not about the food, though I would love some rendang and lemang; nor money. I just want to meet people and have fun.
I'm working today so I can't wait for the weekends! :)
Selamat hari raya and maaf zahir batin to all. Wishing everyone a very merry hari raya!



p/s: Happy birthday Nana. May all your dreams and wishes come true and take care of yourself and the baby. I love you!

...and hopefully wiser.


So many things happened this Ramadan. Braces removed. Welcomed retainter. My first job. Working on a weekend. Helping out at the new house. Break fast with him... and favourite people - to say that they're my friends would be an understatement; definitely my second family. Bled because of the crab, tasty but dangerous. Ayam golek, the food I have been craving for forever, Alhamdulillah for that.
I guess this year is different. I don't have the urge to buy anything for raya. Break fast has not been an eating contest. Usually had it at home and if I'm dining out, mostly only one meal. Life is much simpler. 
When you have to earn money - no more handouts, you'll appreciate it more. Thanks to my accountant parents, I'm making sure every single cent counts, just like how they taught me since I was little. 
My siblings are different. They can't remember how it was/weren't there when life was hard. The long walks, bus rides, and rented hous…
