It's 2014; the year of the horse ♡

I know that it's already the 10th day of the year, but HELLO 2014!

You will be good; way better than last year! I can feel it already. 

2013 was an amazing year. The main highlight was finally passing my Fundamental Levels of ACCA after umpteen years of attempt! Well, of course there were more amazing moments throughout the year like anniversary with the boy, birthdays, spending quality time with family and friends who came home for a holiday from the overseas, Christmas, NYE, etc.. It was indeed a good year and I have no complaints :)

2014 started off with a baking session with my aunt. Everything was done by myself with the supervision of my aunt and for the first time, everything tasted pretty good. *selfpraisemode* The next few days were outings with loved ones and closest friends, followed by friends from KL who visited Penang. Oh oh, the boy and I reached our 71th month together on the 4th; which is just one month away from our 6th year together. I can't wait! My 2014 started out pretty well, so I guess the rest of the year should be good too! :p

Straits Quay | Fireworks ushering into 2014 

Anyway, everyone had made their new year resolutions but I was too lazy to think of it. However, I think I should do it now and try to keep to it. So, here are my 10 resolutions for 2014:

Resolution #1
To get a job I like with a decent amount of salary and allowances. It's time for me to find a job since I have already finished my course. 

Resolution #2
Workout. If I want to wear those sexy figure-hugging clothings without my bigass tummy and no ass showing, WORKOUT. If I want to wear tanks, bandeau, toga, and halter tops without my collarbone bulging out and boney arms showing, WORKOUT. 

Resolution #3
Wear those pesky retainers and continue my bite and tongue exercise. My parents spent way TOO much money to straighten my teeth! All money and time will be wasted if my teeth becomes crooked and ugly again. 

Resolution #4
Eat healthy. Reduce the amount of junk food I consume and drink more water. Eat more salads and lean meat. Less oily food.

Resolution #5
Spend less time on social media and more time on educational websites. No more counting likes on Instagram and Facebook. It is such a waste of time.

Resolution #6
Less impulsive buying. Buy only what is necessary but it's okay to splurge on something I like once in a while. I've bought a whole lot of unnecessary stuff in 2013!

Resolution #7
Be independent and take risks. I was just talking to dad about these problems I frequently encounter and he told me that it is okay to take risks, but it must not be a blinded risk; and I have a place to fall back if something happens. However, I need to stop relying on everyone to do things for me. So, I will try to be more independent and to take calculated risks whether it is regarding a job, decision or my life. 

Resolution #8
Travel outside Malaysia at least once this year! Does not matter if it is Thailand or Singapore of Indonesia, just travel to explore the world!

Resolution #9
Grow closer to God. I think I have drifted too much last year and I have been too distant from God, yet he still blessed me with overflowing goodness throughout 2013. 

Resolution #10
Let go. This is the one thing I have not done in 2013. I have been grudging and holding on to the past and it affected me quite badly to the point my heart hurt. Seeing her brings back so much painful shit I had gone through in mid 2012. It has been more than a year and it is still haunting me. I guess for 2014, I must learn how to let go of the past and stop it from affecting me so that I can move on with life. 

Let's try to keep to our own resolutions, shall we? Cheers to a good year ahead, cheers to 2014!

iPhone App Icons

Hey folks! It's me again! I know it has been way too long since I blogged and I apologize for that. So here's a post on the second day of March.

By seeing the title of the post, it's pretty clear what this post will be about. Yes, an iPhone application!! :D

Pretty and girly things always catch my eye. It's normal for a girl, no? Heh. Well, recently I came across this app in the Apple App Store which customizes your iPhone app icons! It's not very hard to handle and the results are really good externally. Externally ONLY!!

Look at how pretty an iPhone can be?!

But why externally only? >_<

Because they are only SHORTCUTS. These shortcuts direct you to the exact same app you assigned it to but the real app icons are still in the phone. sigh* So basically, it's quite useless although it gives pretty girly icons for your iPhone unless you hide the real app icons in a folder on the next page. Oh, and also if you have messages from your friends on Whatsapp/WeChat/LINE, you don't get notification. How annoying.

Some asked if it slows down my phone after getting those cute icons. No, it didn't. They're basically shortcuts so I guess they won't slow your phone down? Idk really. Sorry! D:

My opinion on this app is not to get it, although it is still on my iPhone screen. It's sort of useless although it's makes your phone look pretty.

In case you are interested in the app, it is called CocoPPa.

2013, You Will Be Awesome ♥

2012 has been a year filled with bittersweet memories.

I've learnt many things, both good and bad. 2012 made me a stronger person than I was before. From heartbreaks to hypocrites to friends, all have taught me well. Oh, and I've learnt how to keep to myself more this year. Lol, kinda good and bad in a way.

The first half of the year was a struggle. From being the happiest girl ever to the most broken hearted girl ever. I've never felt that way before and it shocked me what I was capable of doing to myself at that state of mind. How I'd do anything to take away the pain I had, how I'd lock myself in the room and just cry all day without food or water, hitting walls, etc. 

What did I learn from that? I became stronger in a way, learning how to ignore people that didn't matter and found out who my real friends were. I even became more independent and improved on my driving skills. LOL.

Second half of the year was filled with loads of doubts, insecure-ness, jealousy, hatred, anger, but there was love and joy too. I know, how ironic right? I had too many doubts and I lost trust in everything. That resulted in tears and unhappiness within me. I thought to myself, why would I want something like this back into my life? 

Everyone deserves a second chance, no? My prayers were answered, so there were no reason why I should stop. Maybe this is God's plan. Idk, really. But I do hope it's for good right now. I lost friends due to this too, which is bad :(

All I know right now is that I'm happy with what I've decided and I do hope my friends would be too. Sometimes I still need support from them because insecure-ness still hits me. Sometimes, a hug is all I need. 

To you know who, thanks for the promise you made. I do hope you will prove it to me and keep your promise. 

Oh well, enough of these :)

HELLO 2013, please be good to me. I know you will be awesome.

I'm just trying to be happy

Have you ever struggled with your own emotions? Trying to take control of them but it seems like your emotions are the one controlling you now. Trying to smile to stop the pain and tears from falling down your cheeks. How about not wanting to wake up every morning because you just can't stand the pain you are going through?

I did. Every single day.

I don't know how I did it but it's just unbearable. I have been going through this pain for near 3 months already. Pre, during and post. I'm exhausted and all I feel right now is nothing but pain and heartbreak. I wonder how much more I can take before I fall and give up.

I'm tired of explaining what happened and why it happened. I'm tired of people assuming things about what happened. I'm tired of dealing with people trying to bring me down at this time. I'm tired of dealing with everything.

All I want to do right now is just disappear; literally disappear from this world, this pain.

One month passed, I really wonder if you are happy with what you have decided. Almost everyday you ask me if everything's okay. I'm not, you know I'm not. But I just tell you everything's okay because even if I told you otherwise, you wouldn't care. I really hate that this happened. I don't know what went wrong and what happened. I still am trying to figure out what really happened. I'm still wondering if there's hope in us. The way you check on me shows you still care. You may think it's just normal but no, it's not. I keep acting as if I hate you because it's easier than telling you I miss you. I miss everything we used to have.

I just can't do this anymore. The pain never lessen, it becomes more painful day by day. At any point, I would just give up. 

Just so you know, my feelings for you never changed a single bit.
