Oh hi, hello.
12 days since my last update. Who’s counting anyway.
Of late I”ve been feeling very demotivated to blog or put my thoughts down. So I tend to talk to myself in my head all the time. It’s like the perfect place ever to live in since no one talks or fights back, haha. The thought of shutting down this blog has also crossed my mind. Not sure if I’ll be doing that any time soon, esp when I have some big news to reveal. But who knows, I might.
Can you guess what it might be? And please don’t go looking at my fat bloated tummy to figure it out! It’s.just.BLOATED! I swear.
This is what I’ve been up to of late and I gotta say, last week was pretty happening for me with meet ups and what not!
Since I do have kind friends who did miss me while I was away for a month, I did some meet ups with them.
This was in Thirdwave in Nexus, Bangsar South last Tuesday to catch up on news and life updates with my Hot Mama friends (they were previously my blog readers whom I have since become close friends with. I have technically lost 3 blog readers because now they get first dips on updates via whatsapp and our meet ups, lol). And funny part is, we tend to meet up more without the kids just because it’s a whole lotta more fun that way Mommies need their time away from their munckins once in a while too!
We even squeezed in a pampering session for our feet! I promised them I wouldn’t upload this on Facebook but no one said I couldn’t upload it here so
On Wednesday, I finally had a nice long over-due session of meeting the woman behind Just Me, The Mrs ! I’ve known her for a while now as we read each other’s blogs and we had often email/whatsapp each other. She was kind enough to come show me some support when my dad passed away, so it was sooo nice to finally sit down at Coffeebean to catch up properly face to face and get to know each other more! I most definitely had so much fun and am looking forward to our next meet up!
No photo coz she prefers to remain anonymous Do check out her blog though!
On Thursday, I caught up with an ex -colleague who now has become a close friend in La Boca in Pavilion. Again, no photos to share coz we were busy updating each other just about everything under the sun. Note to self, it ain’t hard to take 10 seconds off chattering to take a selfie of some sort I guess. But major note to self – AVOID KL city like a plague going forward coz I wasn’t too pleased to get stuck in traffic for a good 45 minutes each way. I do love my friends, but not to the extend of putting up with shitty traffic just to go see them, heh Roads have officially gone haywire in the city what with roadworks and all that. What’s new all over KL though. I am however super glad I don’t work there anymore. It’s hard to digest that it’s been 8 months since I left the working world which I don’t miss one bit. Well except the money which usually can be fixed after nagging the husband into giving me some, lol. Story of my life.
That same night, just when I was about to go to sleep I saw a chilling Facebook update by a friend about what had happened to flight MH17. And you have no idea how I felt esp since when I was flying out to Singapore the very next morning. It may have been just a short tiny flight but it definitely plays on your mind and I can only imagine how excited those on board must have been before boarding that ill fated flight, how they would have gone through immigration and the works without having an ounce of idea what would happen to them in the next hours. I can only pray that they didn’t suffer much when it happened and that their souls be at peace. Justice needs to be served and I do hope the Malaysian government (no matter how much I don’t think highly of) will not brush this issue aside at any cost. KLIA was most certainly in a very somber mood esp when news about MH17 was being blasted at every corner. It’s been very hard to accept what has happened, esp when flights to Amsterdam-KL is an extremely common commercial route. One of my husband’s ex colleague was on board that ill fated flight and my cousin and a friend each had an ex classmate on board too. That said, I do have a long haul fight (if you call under 10 hours long but it is when you’re travelling with a toddler alone!) with MAS soon and we had actually booked it just one day before the incident. While this is no way MAS’s fault, people can’t help but feel that the airlines is jinxed (something to do with the number 7 they say) and that if it can happen twice now, there will be a third time they justify.
I don’t know about that since I’m not GOD and cannot predict the future. To me, I often feel whatever happens is pretty much written by the man above, no matter how cruel it can be sometimes. If something bad is bound to happen, it will happen regardless. Be it on a MAS flight or in some other ways. When we heard MAS was offering full refunds on flights booked until end of this year, I have to say, it was somewhat tempting but I figured I shall leave it all to HIS hands. This will still not deter me from travelling or going on any flights and to stupid people who say ‘this is why I don’t travel much’ – well you’re a dumb arse. Kindly continue to rot in KL and think its the best city to live in everrr, thank you.
Nevertheless, I have never failed to offer a prayer to HIM asking him to guide us and to be with us until we arrive safely to our destination. Somethings in life you have no control over true, but that shouldn’t stop you from praying just because, you can!
If you’re ever in Singapore, Nine Thirty by Awfully Chocolate is a MUST visit! Their desserts are just O.M.G amazing. Well done for a local chain I have to say.
While I didn’t enjoy our day trip to Singapore last year, it was different this time since I went around shopping with a friend who has been living there for the past 5 years. We took the train, cab and bus to get around and public transportation in SG is highly impressive and probably comes in second best compared to Hong Kong. She needed to do some baby shopping since she’s due soon so it was certainly my pleasure to be there edging her on to buy unnecessarily cute baby clothes! People often tell me I’m a very bad influence when it comes to shopping but I do take that as a compliment why thank you very much
I wasn’t impressed much with the Great Singapore Sale but I did have fun walking into just about every high end stores there because the SAs don’t judge (unlike the snotty ones in KL) and are of great help to you even if you’re dressed like you can’t afford it.
The Prada double zip tote IS my dream bag at the moment. And one day it shall be mineeee!
SGD2.3k only maam
The only time I wouldn’t mind being Singaporean, heh.
Literally got back around 11.30pm on both nights from the malls, squeezed in a pampering feet treat while watching 2000 Pound Beauty (awesome Korean movie!), ate junk food for lunch (and which was quite evident with bloated tums) and definitely had a ton of fun with our girl oh I mean married woman talk
Sunday arrived too quickly so it was time to say bye!
@ Changi Airport. Oh and you know you’re becoming a shitty blogger when you fail to take out your proper camera and instead just use the lousy phone camera to take pictures. Woe.
I only came home with 2 items and both belong to Sairah! Didn’t even get anything for myself.
Me mama left me behind for 2 nights but hey look what she got me from Singapore?
Later that night on Sunday we went out for an early birthday celebration since my mom turns all of 59 today!
@ Souled Out, Nexus
From the kiddie menu and I thought it was rather cute that they made the mash and sausages into a bunny rabbit. Certainly a meal that caught her attention! Like most meals I suppose, haha.
Imma bunny destroyer and Imma gonna eat your ears first!
We certainly missed Daddy even more and as someone said, every birthdays and events henceforth without him is certainly quite painful.
And that is all the updates I can give for now. If anyone even cares.
Till then, toodles.
