My room had a semi makeover and I’m loving every piece of it. I left other section of the room uncaptured because I’m not fully done redecorating it (better stay tune for the final look). Initially, this is what it looked like — a partitioned room with curtains as a divider to the other room. Yep, I still can’t afford a fully furnished solo room, thus the small space I have. By default, the bunk bed is already there. But since I’m not occupying the top, it will serve as a storage space for my whatnots — which btw, is still a work in progress. Doing this is simply not a product of boredom from 5 days straight off at work but rather an impulse to prettify it after seeing a whopping grand sale at IKEA during Eid Al Fitr. Black and white overload!
Because I’m in a country where Ramadan is solemnly practiced, I don’t get to eat and drink freely outdoors unless it’s "Iftar" already — a go signal to pig out when the clock strikes 7pm. Luckily, for those Non-Muslims like me who doesn’t want to participate in fasting, we’re allowed to take out foods or have it delivered and consume it indoors as a sign of respect. In less than a week, it’ll soon be over and things will be back to normal. Hmm ‘kay, so much for that.
Yesterday, I happen to swing by at Sandwichy — a relatively new restaurant nearby the office that caters gourmet sandwiches, burgers, starters, salads, desserts and fresh fruit beverages. Since I’m keen on a healthy diet, I thought salad + strawberry banana shake will be a good combo. Yep, greens + fruits!
Nothing beats the feeling of seeing your work displayed and appreciated whilst leaving other people curious of who’s the brainchild behind the artistique piece they’re staring at. I haven’t felt that yet because I’m on the web side — not the kind where people can see my designs in the outskirts of town, everywhere and anywhere, even without the internet. So as I scan through the pages of the stacked print collateral we have for this well-known brand, I felt inadequate. Awe-inspiring layouts and designs that I believe I can also execute if I put the technicalities behind. I’ve tried print — but it’s nothing compared to this big project I’m leaning forward to. Years from now, can I be more than just a web gal? Who knows.
I had the bumpiest, rough, flight. The captain announced on board that we crossed a 30-minute thunderstorm, and the turbulence was crazy and sickening that others started throwing up. I tried my hardest to take a nap and the next thing I know when I rubbed the sleep from my eyes was this — the sky fancily greeted me with lovely clouds. Pilots are indeed heroes.
Ya’y! I’m back. Please someone kick my lazy ass up and remind me I still have a luggage to unpack and a room to declutter. The heat is so on that I’ll be a total shut in during day offs! Hello 40° *faints*, bye outdoors.
