Currently, sitting in a very awkward feel in the living room to blog. I know, I’m weird. How can I feel awkward in my own house right? Right. Anyway, the only reason that I am currently in my living room, blogging out is because about 5minutes ago, the family decided to order take away and I am on ‘stand by’ to receive the food. I am so hungry now! The last meal I had was at like 1pm!
Anyway, the urge to update appeared out of the blue and here I am typing this out. A friend asked once why bother updating when no one reads anyway? I don’t know. Maybe writing or typing words keep me sane and life/thoughts organised It’s like a cheap therapeutic way of calming one soul. Don’t judge, everyone is different. At least I am not junking on food or staring in space and let the mind control the brain and all the unnecessary thoughts jumbled together to give me that hazy fuzzy feel about life.
So . . . my life since the last updated post has been . . . challenging. I think I have been using the word ‘challenging’ tad too much for my liking. I mean, I can use words such as difficult or tough but I feel that it’s not difficult, it is just challenging. Like I feel that if I am to use the word difficult, it just has that negative feel and I probably get through my days every day with ease. Challenging is more like of a challenge, where if I can complete the challenge, I achieve something and that feeling I get is pleasant, positive kind of feel. So yes, my days/life have been challenging. I am not complaining, really. If I am complaining, I have already begin ranting at the start of this post.
Any oh how, I had a short mini trip out of the challenging days. A trip to Bangkok with Jouie, a day after term 1 ended. It was a really nice, relaxing, chilling 7 days trip (despite of the hot sun but I had fun under the sun). We were really taking our time to go places, shopping, eating, dreaming, sleeping, chilling during our trip. And the hotel that we stayed at was fabbbbbbbb! A total recommendation from me to you (whoever is reading this anyway). The hotel is Berkeley Hotel at Pratunam. A newly built and opened only last year, everything about the hotel is good. Nothing much to complain about (except that they need to have more variety for the breakfast [but there are already a lot – from western to asian food; and they will have one counter where everyday, the menu for that particular counter changed according to whichever they are serving]). The hotel services are excellence and everyday we come back to clean towels and really really neat made beds (as if it was our first day entering our room). So yes, check the hotel out if you guys are heading to Bangkok. Currently, my favourite hotel out of all the hotels I have been to (whether it is in Bangkok or other places).
So the trip ended with a bittersweet note. Sweet because we had totally kind of max our leave and had the best relax days since the start of the year and bitter because leave is ending and work was coming. Bangkok will one of the few places that I will frequent now and the future! (oh ya, no riots or protests when we were there. It was kind of funny because everyone there were like ‘you came at the right time. The protest just stopped’ and we were ‘yeah…..’ because we don’t really know how to react to that, you see).
So term 2 is here or rather, the ongoing term. Challenged days had gone by and challenging days coming up. The current motivation for me to go through the challenging days is the upcoming summer trip! Really excited and I still can’t believe I have already book my flights! A pity as of now that I can sit and research on the things I want to do. Work is piling and other personal commitments (like losing weight, watching my diet, planning winter and 2015 trips, strengthening all sort of relationships with people [family included] are also piling. Fret not, Insyallah, everything will be done soon and I can sit down and do some research for summer!
So … I was reading this post again and there is really no main agenda of this entry. I just felt the need to just log in and type something because yeah, too many things in the mind.
So till then,
