Follow me to a bookstore

Happy Saturday and happy school holiday to all. I am always happy when school holiday starts. I like having my kids around the house even though they make a mess. I was in a good mood this morning and I decided to take my kids for Saturday outing. It has been a long time since the last time I went to my favourite bookstore - Kinokuniya located at KLCC. I love this place because they have almost everything that I wanted in a bookstore. If possible I wanted to live in this bookstore.

The best time to go here is early in the morning. We arrived at Kinokuniya at 10:00 am and there were still not many people around. This place can get crowded during weekend.



I found the sequel to Me before you.  I don't really like the cover. I think I should wait since I have not finished reading Me Before you book.


So many books on parenting.. hemmmm which one to choose,,


hem... Work Pump Repeat.. I probably will buy this book if I'm still breastfeeding..
This guy will grab any books that within his reached

The Wild diet. I am curious to know more about this diet plan ever since I saw him in My Diet is Better than yours tv show on hulu.



Yes I love the Girl on the train, I am going to give this book a try.
Beautiful colourful pens






I think I spend about one and a half hours here, browsing, taking photos and just be a place where knowledge is every where.

I hope you have fun following me around at my favourite bookstore. Have a creative and pleasant weekend everyone!

5 lesson learned from Better Then Before

I bought this book last year and did't touch it until February this year. I bought the audiobook with my audible credit and start listening to it everyday while driving and continue for one hour with the book at the office.


I've finished reading this book in less than a week, which is a record for me. Some people hate this book and some people love it. I don't have any problem with Gretchen's writing style. I love the fact that I learned a lot from this book. So these are the 5 lessons learned from Better than Before!

1. Habits make change possible by freeing us from decision making and from using self-control
This really a powerful statement. I never have thought how important habits are in our daily lives. I usually took habits for granted and never really monitor and take stock of my habits. I really like that this book open up my eyes about habit. Now I want to read more books about habits.

2. The four tendencies - Upholders, Questioners, Obliger and Rebels

After taking a test on Gretchen's blog I discovered that I am an Upholders. No wonder I don't have any problem forming a habit and I was curious why some people can't stick to a new environment. Now I know. Before reading this book I don't even realise that these tendencies influence changed and habits formation.

3. Establish a daily routine is essential.

It promotes habits and as Gretchen stated in her book, habits are the invisible architecture of everyday life. When we master our habits we can make out lives better than before

4. Four pillars of habits that can help when you want to change - Monitoring, Foundation, Scheduling and Accountability.

These knowledge gives a whole different perspective for a planner girl like me. I already have a planner, all I have to do is add in habit tracker or set goals of a certain habits I want to add into my life.

5. Formation of habits are different for different people

This give me an understanding of why some people struggle with habit formation and some people can changed instantly.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and gave you in depth perspective about Better Than Before. I highly recommend this book if you want to know more about habits.

Here are few layouts I made using Pixelily Designs Kits

This is life

I can't believe that my life has come to this. Me at home with a cup of hot chocolate and my hulu or iflix.  I never thought that my life will come to this. I just can't stop watching these shows

1. Unreal
I did not expect to love this show. After the first episode I just can't stop watching it.



2. Blindspot
This show slowly grew on me. At first it felt like any normal CIA/FBI tv show but after episodes 10, it's started to get interested. I want to know more.



3. Telenovela
Eva Longoria is the only reason I watched this show and it was surprised that I enjoyed every episodes

4. Grandfather

John Stamos still looks good after all these years and now he is a grandfather. 


5. Superstore
I am not sure about this new show. I enjoyed watching the first few episodes but after awhile it felt a little bit the same like the rest. I probably should give it a break and continue watching it after watching other tv shows.

6. The Big Bang Theory

I came late to the Big Bang Theory world but I am catching up with the show on iflix. I am on season 8 now and loving it. It feels like friends but so much better. 



There are a few other shows that are still in my queue lists like 
i. Agents of Shields
ii. DC Legends
iii. 11.22.63
iv. Rosewood
v. blackish
vi. Brooklyn nine-nine
and many more..
