Wild bluebell & Nectarine blossom

Yeay! Just placed an order with Jo Malone UK website, my super clever online shopping savvy cousin Wei Hong did it for me since I don’t have a UK credit card ๐Ÿ™‚ then aunty Hilda will be bringing it back for me ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰

This time I have chosen wild bluebell as it was the one I was choosing between but in the end I went for pear & freesia. Bought my second bottle of Nectarine Blossom, it’s my absolute favourite. This scent makes me so happy. It puts a smile on my face when I spritz it on, and when its an amazing feeling when I get a whiff of it throughout the day. No scent has evoked these kind of feeling from me before. And… I bought another item I never thought I’ll pay this amount of money for, a candle -__- in the same scent. I just want to surround myself n bask in it.. Aaah imagine falling asleep to this scent *bliss*

Thank God you found me

the awesome feeling of being found. it’s addictive and comforting and it makes me happy. and happy is what i need right now. so thank you, thank you for trying to find me all these years but thank God you found me when i needed it most.

still cant believe its you. my thoughts went back to our teenage years of spending our holiday at the beach, your sisters, your mom, your dad.. and how we were kids then. and all these years of living in close proximity, eating in the same places and we’ve not met.

These words, uttered at the most unexpected moment caught me by surprise

And it was a very sweet surprise indeed.

My mind refuses to rest tonight , and here i am digging back into my archives to find this, my favourite poem from E.E. Cummings.

this poem reminds me of you. every single inch of you that I’m missing.

the bed seems really empty tonight without you.

How I crave

Sitting here in Starbucks in my feeble attempt to study (feeble because…see, I’m not studying but blogging instead) I realised that I crave for solitude more than I thought, and I enjoy it better than I would expect. It allows my mind to wonder on its free rein, without the limits and boundaries of the everyday mundane and the sense of responsibility towards the people surrounding me.

I’m reading about stuffs that I’ve learnt during the earlier days, it seems vaguely familiar yet I still need to read it..and I’m feeling like I have such an ageing brain. Finally opened my big moleskine..it’s supposed to be an incentive ๐Ÿ˜‰ and brought my Seville tumbler out today. Miss my Lisbon tumbler which has fallen into the hands of the wrong person (mrF)

Oh and the playlist here is nothing short of amazing, it’s a good mix of Christmas holiday songs and some soulful jazzy sounds..

Back to the books now.

Just that.

Many words left unsaid because they are inappropriate, many gestures held back because it defies the boundaries, options are ignored because none were right, all these and yet there were no expectations because that’s too dangerous to be flirted with.

Summed up in words, everything seems simpler. Too bad it doesn’t translate into real life.

Life will never be the same again

It is in this stillness of the night that my mind refuses to rest, and keeps whirring at a multitude of thoughts..

I think of how I think of dad everyday

How each time my he comes into my mind tears well up in my eyes

How the moment comes without warning, hitting my heart with a profound sadness and yearning for him.

Only 28 years of my life I had a dad. Out of that 6 years was spent away from home.

Moments like this I surrender my heart and soul to the pain I don’t know how to relieve.

I will always be missing you dad. I just can’t bring myself to say it aloud most of the time, I’m trying too hard to stop the tears from falling ;(

I celebrated my first birthday without my dad. I truly miss the moment of receiving my first birthday greeting every year on the card he will slip under my door, with a text to wish me. My dad was always the first person to write me my card. And sadly this year, the first year that he was gone.. There was no card for me as how it used to be. Because daddy’s gone and no one else cared in that way.

Mom’s 61st birthday

We celebrated mom’s 61st birthday last weekend, had buffet hi tea at fuzion restaurant, Sunway Resort Hotel, and it was a nice afternoon of feasting and chatting <;;;3 <;;;3

Trip to Italy-the retail therapy

oh God. the shopping was fantastic, what wasn’t was the limited time allocated for shopping >.< not too impressed by how our tour guide arranged the day to day itinerary as it didn’t allow us much time on our own. so recently in april me, mom, aunty flo and uncle sam went for a trip to italy. we covered a few cities.. hmm if laziness or procrastination wears off i might blog about the trip. but this post is about the stuff i bought!

i think I’m gonna be eating porridge for a few months. but maybe not because mr awesome is feeding me ๐Ÿ˜‰
