So I’ve been in a mood for some time, hence the lack of posts. Hearing the news on MH17 pulled me right into a set of gloom and it made me send off flurries of messages to my close friends trying to see light in the midst of darkness.
I was actually still up when the news started to pop up on twitter. Within an hour or two, even without any official confirmation, photos were flying around social media. Let’s just say, people should think twice before sending out such photos on social media because I saw some uncensored versions of the actual site.
This one hit close to me because it could have happened to anyone. It could also have easily been me because I travel quite frequently. All those lives gone in a split second. I couldn’t even imagine it. So I stopped myself from checking social media any further. But the gloomy mood stayed with me.
So I’m doing this as a cheer-me-up so I hope you all get entertained while I distract myself to find a little joy in the midst of such darkness.
6 months anniversary!
It has been 6 months since I started posting regularly (or sometimes irregularly..sorry!). So I thought that it would be good to have a mini get-to-know session because all my readers are super awesome and have been so supportive, I feel like I already know a little of everyone.
SO…here are some tidbits of myself that I thought would be fun to share with all of you.
1. I’m short, like very short.
One of the reasons why I don’t really like to ride a bike when I travel is because I can never
rent one with a seat that is low enough for me to have my feet on the ground. Unless I get a kid’s bike that it.
Can you just imagine me trailing on a kid’s bike while the others speed away??!! No fun! >_<
2. I like to learn new languages.
It’s just something I enjoy. I especially like to eavesdrop on foreigners and try to guess their nationality from their accents…not that I’m trying to creep out anyone but I like listening to the different intonations. Oh, and ok, English is my main language. I speak Malay with my family and others in the community. I studied Chinese during my university days for a few years and have since picked up Korean. Very basic Korean though, there is no grammar, no structure, just conversational Korean that is sufficient for me to go around. 🙂
3. I self-diagnosed myself with “Itchy Fingers Syndrome”.
Said syndrome has been to blame for all my impulsive travel bookings. It has a mind of its own and does not listen to the pocket. I am very grateful to have friends who are willing to make me sit through their counselling before confirming any bookings. Not that the counselling sessions are always successful though. It just helps to have some emotional support sometimes.
4. I love animation movies.
Especially if it comes in 3D. Because I’m just a kid who never grows up. My absolute favourite?
Finding Nemo. I once made my whole family re-watch this movie, in the cinema, a few years after it ended its run. All because it was released to the cinemas in 3D. A good thing I paid for their tickets…;)
5. My deepest secret confession – not sure whether I want to announce this but hmm, don’t judge guys..:)
On my silly days, I like talking whale with my mum. Whale talk?
I love my mummy. 😀
So now it’s your turn guys! Let me know something about you as well! Can you beat my deepest secret confession? Do tell!
It will at least help me shake off this mood of mine. Laughter is always the best medicine! 🙂
