Day 4. Hot chocolate //#gratitudeproject

I have always love chocolate every since I can remember. Lately when there are a lot of hot chocolate drinks were invented I was over the moon. I love having my drink either early in the morning or at night especially when I am on my computer browsing the net or pinning on pinterest.

DAY 4. THANKFUL FOR HOT CHOCOLATE

Day 4 Hot Chocolate

September Reads 2014

September seems to be a good month for me. I plan to read six books and I ended up with only five books from the lists. I've started reading To All the Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han but I just can't finish it because The Silkworm took most of my reading time. I am so looking forward to October. Hopefully I can steal a lot of time to read or even listen to audiobook.


September-reads

Books that I've finished in SEPTEMBER

1. Insurgent (Divergent) by Veronica Roth - the second series of Divergent. Read this if you are a fan of Divergent

2. Veronica Mars: An Original Mystery by Rob Thomas: The Thousand-Dollar Tan Line - Love Veronica Mars and I just love that this book pick up where the movie left off. Can't get enough of Veronica Mars. Looking forward to the next book.

3.The Silkworm (A Cormoran Strike Novel) by Robert Galbraith - After reading the first series of the book I just have to pick up this book. This is a very long book and it took me more than a week to finished it. I was never a fan of Harry Porter series but I am definitely a fan of Robert Galbraith. Finally a contemporary book which take place in London and in a world which I can understand better - no magical or dystopian world.

4. Mean Streak by Sandra Brown - I had so much fun reading the book just because I am a fan of Sandra Brown. Not her masterpiece but it is still a good writing. I enjoyed it very much.

5. The 9th Girl by Tami Hoag - Love this book. I have become a fan of Tami Hoag after reading this book. I am so looking forward to reading another book by this author. 


Currently reading

1.Mr. Mercedes: A Novel by Stephen King - this is my fourth attempt at reading Stephen King novel. I've tried reading his book many times but it got to scary for me to finish the book. I hope I can read the book till the end. From the synopsis of the book it looks like a normal police and psycho killer story but knowing Stephen King I might be totally wrong.

2.Gone Girl: A Novel by Gillian Flynn - "On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer?" excerpt from amazon.com

I am not sure if September will be a good month for me to read more. Hopefully I can cross a lot of books from my To Be Read Pile.

Day 2. Sport Shoes // #gratitudeproject

Day two comes and goes and I am in Terengganu right now. Not the place I wanted to be to tell the truth. I rather be at home with my kids.
Being thankful is the only thing that makes life fun and interesting again. Oooo I missed my sport shoes. I wish I have the time to exercise here but as always exercise becomes less and less important lately.

DAY 2: THANKFUL FOR SPORT SHOES

#thursday3 [02.10.2014]


Away from home and missing my daily routine like smashbooking, scrapbooking and exercising


HERE ARE MY PHOTO AND FACTS FOR THE WEEK 
Untitled

#1. I am currently reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and Mr. Mercedes by Stephen King. I still have not pick up to continue reading the Kill Order. Not sure when I will continue reading the book.


#2. I am attending a workshop in Kuala Terengganu. It is always a nice change when you work outside the office.


#3. Since I am not sure if iPhone 6 is for me, I am thinking of upgrading my 32GB to 64GB but so far all the stock are out and the apple online store does not have iPhone5s in 64GB.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done."

Follow along each week using the hashtag #thursday3 dan tagged me @hanizeyecandy. I want to see your selfie and read about you

Day 1: Washi Tape // #gratitudeproject

I am doing another round of gratitude project. I just love the idea of listing all things that I am grateful for on a daily basis. One thing each day for a month. I find these kind of list really helps to put things on perspective and help me keep stock of the things that I am thankful for.

I will be doing this list for the whole month of October instead of November just because I feel like I really need a boost, motivation and just be thankful. Life is too short to be sad all the time.

DAY 1: THANKFUL FOR WASHI TAPE

Project Life [Week 39]

Ever since I got my hand on Project Life App I am totally hooked. I think for the rest of the year I am going to make my project life layout using only this app. I've finished making these layouts in less than 10 minutes. All my photos are from Dropbox that means I have access to all my photos any time any where. Maybe in the next update will have integration with Flickr. 

THIS IS MY DIGITAL PROJECT LIFE          FOR WEEK THIRTY NINE
