Miscellaneous

There are so many little things that I want to blog about, but I can’t be blogging each and every one of them in different post. So, this is going to be a random and “rojak” kind of post. Beware of the waves of little things. Hahahaha.

Went to KLCC just now, bought a new lens, 50mm f1.8. It’s more for close-up or portraits. I so wish to get the 85mm f1.8, but the price totally knocked me out. Guess I’d leave it for later. Now I just hope this 50mm could perform up to my expectations. I spent RM550 today for the new lens and 2 filters! Gosh……

The weather is killing man!!! It’s hot, super hot, extremely hot, unbelievably hot…… And what?! It’s going to be like this all the way to the month of September! And now it is only what, May???!!! For goodness’ sake, another 4 months!!! For your information, as I am now renting, I do not have air-conditioning room. Yes, you heard me right, no air-conditioner! Both Andrew and I are now living on one ceiling fan and one table fan. However, 2 fans sometimes just seem failed to work. Sometimes, the moment I stepped out from the cold shower, before I have the chance to take the towel to dry myself, I was sweating already! Argh!

Dinner with Andrew’s dad last night, he mentioned that it’s about time for Andrew to sell that good-serving Proton Wira and get a new car. Wait a minute…… That Proton Wira is truly our wira (hero), it has been with us for more than 5 years. It’s a second hand car when Andrew’s brother first bought it. After that Andrew is the one that has been using the car. It has served a few good years, it is only recently that the car started to give us some problems. Two years ago was unbelievable, the car would just have some lil’ problem every alternate month. At times it even broke down for no reason, was making funny noise once in a while too. But it has proven its good. I am fine with the car, in fact it’s not so bad at all. Okay, buying a new car now is definitely a no-no. First, we’ve got our house now. Both of us ain’t from the high income group, another new loan would definitely put us into difficulty in coping with daily life. So, no. Thank you father-in-law for suggesting helping us with the installment, but sorry, no more new loan for now.

I’ve put on weight. No, to a lot of people, I’m not fat. But I’ve put on weight on areas that I do not want them to be!!! My arms are bigger, I can feel it. I now feel so tight around the arms when I wear my working shirts. No kidding. It’s true. I even feel the edge of the sleeves is eating into my skin when I lift my arms. My tummy and waist… Gosh…… Few months ago mom looked from behind and said, “from behind I thought which daughter of mine is this, so it is you! Where has your waist gone?!” My mom, of all the people in the world, from saying “so thin, eat more”, to now “where has your waist gone”. You better believe it. Now even Andrew also said he can see my tummy. :( I can feel it too, I am now having difficulty in zipping all my pants and skirts. I was 49kg in January, and now I am 51kg. You may say 2kg ain’t much. Well, try to put 2kg of meat around your waist and you’ll know. I seriously need to get back in good shape. Exercise. Hope I could start doing some exercise next week. Now I skip lunches, instead I’m taking this organic drink as detoxifying.

I am happy now. I am now moving towards my dream. Whether it comes true or not, let’s worry about it later. I am happy simply because I have something to look forward to and keep myself busy with hope. I have so many things that I need to learn. I’m a quick learner, I believe I can learn fast. Have faith.

Oh by the way, someone who’s been reading my blog was telling me that I am honest in blogging and I write what I feel. I feel so honoured and flattered. I do my best to be as honest as possible in my blog. But of course there are some details which I do not reveal for reason of privacy. Other than that, I do not cheat on my feelings. What for? Afterall, this is my blog. Even if Andrew or friends do read it once in a while, I find it no purpose at all to cheat.

It is almost 1am now. See, I am all tired yet I always sleep late. I can’t seem to change my sleeping time. Sigh……

Let’s count my blessings. Oh yeah, I said/wrote this quite frequent recently. I do not know why. Everytime after blogging I would just recall who I am today and how I got where I am today. I guess blogging kind of let you do some soul searching along the way.

I am blessed with a lovely family. It is my family that makes me strong today, I realised. Good or bad, the experiences/memories kind of moulded me. Shall share it some day later. It’s time to hit the sack.

P/S: Please bear with me for the photo-less posts. I am just being lazy. Please forgive me.
