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 […]

Far from reality

This would probably be my shortest post. I had just dumped my pile of un-ironed clothes back in the pail. Just because. I had spent the last 2 hours and 40 minutes ironing half of them, laundry from two weeks ago – maybe more. I’ll continue tomorrow. I could have just finished it tonight of […]

It is OKAY

I drank 4 cups of tea after 8pm, in all kinds of form – teh-o, teh tarik, teh ais. We left Pelita with 8 cups between ourselves and I’m very sure I won’t be sleeping early tonight. It’s now 2am… So I figured it’s time I updated my poor, neglected blog. It’s OKAY. Something I […]
