Only the second day into my 12 days shift and I'm feeling all sorts of lazy. :( It's been so long since we went anywhere! Wishing we were back in beautiful Australia.

We decided to go for a short getaway on a whim, just to escape the city and our busy working lives. Booked a hostel at Sungai Lembing for a night and off we went!
There were probably more things we could've done (ie. rainbow falls) as the place is actually rather popular for team-building camps; but since it was only for a night- we decided upon visiting the old Pahang village and a morning hike up Panorama Hill.
so much of Beluran!), we decided to drive to Kuantan for dinner. First stop- Teluk Cempedak!
All in all, it was a rather random and bizzare trip. Fun though, and quite different from our usual relaxing hiking trips. Actually, I beg to differ. Hiking Bukit Brinchang was definitely not that relaxing.
That'll be the next post.

So this date makes us three.
Three official years together, of ups and downs (mainly up for the past year). Of learning how to be a better person for the other. Of just feeling comfortable together with less of a need for the grandiose- bare faced, simple dinners and the works.
This year, I decided to splurge a little on his gift, considering the fact that he has bought me two very expensive (and useful) items- my Mac and iPhone. I hope you'll enjoy your D7100. :)

As is Harry Potter's birthday every year, books/movies pertaining to the wonderfully magical series are usually released. Finally, after 9 long years- the final book, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.
This was how my Sunday was spent, sprawling on my bed, digesting and reliving the magical world of the now grown-up characters that we've come to love over the years. And, it was an emotional ride.
Thank you, J.K Rowling.
And Happy Birthday, Potter! x

On the 23rd of April, I had the pleasure of listening to Wayne Marshall's jazzy intepretation of Rhapsody in Blue, live. It was truly remarkable, watching a maestro at weave his magic- a classy lounge with a tall chandelier, motions in black and white, ladies in flapper dresses and bejeweled hairbands, cigarette, cocktails and whiskey.

What was supposed to be a walk in the park turned out to be a walk from the park to Sri Petaling for dinner (hawker food + beer with ice) and back home again. 9000 steps in total and a few wheals, no thanks to the damn mosquitoes (hopefully not aedes!!!). Guess this is the most productive day of our sedentary Malaysian life! Save for our overactive sweat glands due to the humid weather, I quite enjoyed the spontaneity. :)

I guess I'm just one of those who can't hang around doing nothing for long. Perhaps this core characteristic of mine is responsible for my thirst for wanderlusting and impulsive (occasionally bad) decisions in life. Should definitely pick up a hobby or set a fitness goal.
Immediate goal; to restart my Atkins! I blame Japan for making me crave rice constantly. Hopefully I'll be looking more toned during Ching Mei's baby shower. ;)

It is 8.30am on our 3rd day in Osaka- man, time flies! As usual, I'm the earliest to start my day; having showered, I'm currently feasting on my second bowl of instant noodle bought from the nearest local mart. Slurp, slurp, slurp.. noisily, as a sign of appreciation. Damn, it IS good!
The first two days have gone by so soon. I wish time wouldn't move so fast when we're having fun!
