Trapped

For the hundredth time in my life, I am at a crossroad. The junction of where I do not know which path I should choose. Neither is easy, neither is going to soothe. Neither could probably lead me to where I long to be. How do you bring yourself to think straight when your mind […]

Coping

One of the most common question I get after my divorce was: How do you cope? How do you deal with loneliness? How do you remain so positive? Essential Oils. Not bullshitting. If you remember my previous post on what’s it like being divorced I mentioned two important things I need to remind you of. Firstly, […]

Dating

Let’s talk about dates. Wow. Would you believe this? This is actually the SECOND time I am writing such a post, the last being 2010! The last time I actually had to write down how I felt about dating, was actually the last time I actually dated anyone, solid. I got married after that! Before […]

HOW I FINALLY LOSS SOME WEIGHT

Yep. Do emphasise just a little bit more on FINALLY. How long has it been since I came up with hashtags #bilanakkurus and #howtokurus on my Instagram post? 2016? I’ve probably been hanging about in the 70s since then! When I look back at my Fitbit app, sometime early 2016 I bought myself the Aria […]

10 Things Everyone Should tell You Before Getting Married

EVENthough this relationship of mine only lasted less than a decade. But it was the longest relationship I’ve had. Three boyfriends prior to meeting my husband, and all relationships I never took seriously. Dated a few, never quite learn anything from it. Fast-forward into marriage life and then divorce, here are a couple of things […]

What is it like being divorced after being married for nearly 8 years?

What is it like being divorced after I was married for nearly 8 years, you ask? I’m still trying to get use to it. Eight years of being with someone is a long time of habits and developing comfort zones. Suddenly breaking out of that mould and being ridden with all sorts of responsibilities and […]

Being Me.

School reopens today and it didn’t help that Daniel was absent for a week prior to the Chinese New Year holidays – there was a lot of drama and tears this morning before we left the house. We arrived at school an hour late (its only 6 mins away from my new place, mind you) […]

Skydive Australia – Rockingham

One of the items on my bucket list was skydiving. For years. I wanted so much to challenge myself and do something I’m absolutely petrified about but at the same time I wanted so much for someone to share that experience with me. Nasib baik ada Amy #nasibbaikadaamy. While I’ve known her for years, I […]

Sam Smith Live at the Perth RAC

If you don’t know already, I spent part of November in Perth! My girlfriend and I booked tickets for Sam Smith’s concert  —– IN FEBRUARY! It was crazy! When he announced the Thrill Of It All Tour earlier this year, Amy & I thought Australia (Perth) would be the most likely possible location for us […]

Updates!

The last time I actually wrote a proper post, it was January. A lot has happened since then, I think I’ve also transitioned into a very different place from where I was in 2017. Twenty eighteen is coming to an end, you guys, Daniel is turning 4 next year, I am turning 30 and I’m […]
