Wow. So it’s that time of the year again. I feel like I blinked and whoosh, another year has gone by. 2020 hasn’t exactly been a great year, what with the pandemic and all. Still, I’m grateful that my family and I have managed to weather it so far, despite the uncertainties and challenges – like the Hubs being stuck overseas. There were also some … Continue reading 2020 In Pictures
2020 was supposed to be THE year. N and I had our marriage registered in Nov 2019 after months of groundwork (flying back and forth to get documents and approval from the respective departments, etc), and we finally had our wedding ceremony in February – before he flew back to the Philippines to wait out the six-month cooling off period (Malaysia has this law to … Continue reading Pandemic Tales: Celebrating Our First-Year Wedding Anniversary Apart
Hey guys! It’s 12/10 and the gov just announced that we’re having another CMCO (for the benefit of my foreign readers, that’s a Conditional Movement Control Order – kinda like a ‘loose’ quarantine but not a total lockdown) in my area: which means no interstate travel allowed, plus restrictions on the operating hours of some businesses, for two weeks.

It … Continue reading Money Matters : Recouping My Finances
I hate contact lenses. I hate them with the intensity of a thousand suns, and while I understand why people wear them, that doesn’t make me hate them any less. If hell exists, one of its punishments should be having people put them on and off, every minute, every day, for the rest of eternity. I can’t imagine a worse fate for my enemies. In … Continue reading Why I Hate Contact Lenses
Hey guys! I mentioned earlier this year that I’d like to do more video logs – so here’s the second one! We had the interiors of our house painted, which we’ve never done since moving in (back in 2006). It had a pink and beige colour scheme before, with much warmer overtones – but we’ve changed them to pastel, cooler colours. Welcome to my cosy … Continue reading Video Diary 2# : House Tour – Newly Painted !
