two years ago today...


It's amazing how life can change a lot in two years. Two years ago today I was..
  trip013 trip06
trip019

* in a world so much different than my own 
* there's no electricity, no communication to the outside world
* the main transportation mode is by river
* the air was so fresh 
* experiencing things I've never experience before
* I meet suku kaum Murut for the first time
* at Daerah Pagalungan, Sabah. This place is about 45 minutes from Indonesia 

Do you remember where you were two years ago? Maybe it's time to look back at your old photos collection and see where you were two years ago today...

What do I think // In Time

"In the not-too-distant future the aging gene has been switched off. To avoid overpopulation, time has become the currency and the way people pay for luxuries and necessities. The rich can live forever, while the rest try to negotiate for their immortality. A poor young man who comes into a fortune of time, though too late to help his mother from dying. He ends up on the run from a corrupt police force known as 'time keepers'. Written by THR Heat Vision " source imdb

What do I think?
* what will happen when time become your currency? that is a bit scary when you know you have such limited time left to live.
* I think Justin Timberlake acting has improve a lot in this movie 
* somehow this movie feels a little bit like Gattaca (1997) 
* I don't think I want to live in that world. Sure being 25 forever is very tempting but I sure don't want to look the same as my daughter. There's something about getting older and aging. You just can't put a price tag on it.
* overall I had fun watching the movie even though I just don't get the whole drama... in the end Timberlake and Seyfried becomes like a Robin Hood.. stealing time to give to the poor.. hemmmm I guess something don't change

What to wear ……. 13 Week

whattowear-13

what to wear 13 what to wear 13 what to wear 13

Blouse: Femina
Pants: Femina
Shawl: Shawl shop at Warta
Inner Shawl: Firzara Exclusive

I had such a hectic week! With all that has been happening in my life, I still found that this week move a little bit slower than usual. I love spending time at my parents house. Being a daughter is so much fun! It makes me hate having to leave them and go back to work at Putrajaya which is 2 and half hours away. Lately driving has become a  big deal to me. My focus is not up to speed and my energy is nowhere to be found. Work isn’t a picnic either. I am happy that I can finally eat again. My body temperature is rising which makes living in a hot country like mine is not easy.

Friday Random


Just a little update on what I've been up to
 --- my pregnancy is progressing beautifully. I am starting to feel better each day
 --- I felt the baby moved, such an amazing feeling 
--- so far I don't have any weird craving 
--- starting to watch Ringer starring Sarah Michelle Geller, not bad but I still miss her as Buffy
--- fatigue is still my number one challenge. It is really hard for me to do things slowly but with my condition I have to
--- driving for a longer period of time is not a picnic. It's very hard to stay focus
--- still haven't start any workout schedule yet.. (I really need to squeeze one in soon)
--- somehow these last few weeks seems to move a little bit slower for me
--- I love Friday and can't wait for the next 8 hours to be over.

Scrapper Love // Ferdy

I just came back from a mini vacation at my parents’ house. With my condition driving for more than an hour is a challenge. I was so tired from the long drive that I immediately take a nap after my zohor prayer.

I am feeling much better now. So it’s time for this week segment Scrapper Love. It has been awhile since the last time I hunt  for some inspiration out there. This week I choose Ferdy’s gallery at catscraps. Come and take a look at my pick this week.

What do I think? // Real Steel

"Set in the near future, where robot boxing is a top sport, a struggling promoter feels he's found a champion in a discarded robot. During his hopeful rise to the top, he discovers he has an 11-year-old son who wants to know his father." source imdb.



What do I think?
# a little bit too long for my taste
# it's a boxing movie and it has soul and solid characters
# it feels like a Rocky movie
# I would love to have a truck like Charlie. Somehow it looks cool
# and would love to have a robot like Atom for company...
# the movie doesn't bring anything new to the table but the presentation is still fun and entertaining for the whole family.
# having Hugh Jackman as a hero is definility a plus... Oooo I really miss wolverine
# watch it if you like Rocky, Over the Top or any boxing related movies.

Blog Love revisit

A year ago, I took Blog Love e-course. This was the first e-course I took ever. The price is a bit expensive when converted into Ringgit Malaysia but I decided to buy it anyway just because I only have to pay it one time and I can have access to them anytime I want. Anyway, it was the best gift ever that I have given myself. I still go back to the course every time I feel unmotivated. 

I feel so inspired, every time I read the course. Elsie also add 10 Tips for Time Management and some other fun details. I really like being around creative people cause they really know how to make every day life seems fun and beautiful. Elsie is also the reason I keep on blogging all these years. I just wish I could take a peek at her life for a day or spend one day with her.
If you're interested in this course, take a peek at more info here. You can also read reviews here.
