A stay-at-home Saturday

Well, my plans for Saturday went out of the window, woke up sick today. No surprise really since I got sick in the plane on the way back to KL and didn’t recover properly.

The view from my balcony. The red roofs belong to the Orang Asli settlement right behind our area, there’s a fishing pond there that we used to go to. The Orang Aslis like to burn their rubbish nearly every night, and since we’re on the first floor, we get the full stench of smoke. I wish someone would tell them to stop it as it affects my breathing, but then again they probably do it because they don’t know any better and I’m not sure if MPPJ goes there to collect their rubbish (or whoever’s in charge of collecting rubbish around this area). The top right hand side are the condos at the end of Damansara Perdana, and the top left hand side shows more housing areas being built. Everything from old buildings to forests and trees are being razed down in PJ & KL to make space for more condos, more houses, more office blocks and malls.

I’m just going to spend the rest of the day resting and doing more work. Later on we’ll go out to buy stuff for dinner and a DVD to watch. I shall leave you with my darling naughty cat.

*His tail is quite short, it was already like that when we adopted him from the streets so we think it must have gotten cut or bitten off, by accident or something, when he was born.

Some things are just too beautiful…

Thursday, you feel like a Monday to me

It’s 9:31pm and I’m all cross-eyed.

Today I’ve been trying to read the almost 300 emails that I’ve received during the 10 days that I was in Europe, and I’m still not done yet. I really can’t continue at the moment. I’m also trying to make myself familiar with the new work schedule for a sub-channel that we’re launching next month (week..) and figuring out what topics to write about next week. I also fell asleep at 4 last night/early this morning so my eyelids are getting heavier by the minute.

I’m supposed to join the 5km run at this Sunday’s SMKL marathon…but Chris & I haven’t picked up our running packs yet. I honestly thought they will send it to us. If I do make it, I’ll walk instead of run though. The last time I went jogging was when I was still in Berlin so my stamina’s pretty much hitting the negative right now. It’s also Arabyrd’s T-Party on Sunday, which I have to cover for work, and there’s an event on Saturday, the launch of Elaine Daly’s dalybags’ and Kyla Ruiz’s SS2011 collections.

I eat, sleep and breathe work… 😀


I was in Paris with my family two weeks ago, and I will definitely go back there again – I’m giving myself two years to save up enough money to be able to shop my heart out.

Full post will come up soon.

From Livejournal (private), to Blogger to Tumblr, and now WordPress. I admit, I miss the comments section. My Tumblr’s still there for fashion-related posts, and this will be a more public and general one.

Johnny Gonzales welcomes you.
