A relaxing evening. I finished work, came back home and did my laundry. I always do my laundry either early in the morning nor late in the evening as I work everyday and I have no time to do it properly. I can’t hang my clothes outside because the weather is currently unpredictable and I’m not at home 24/7 to look after the laundry and I never want them to be soaked in the rain. *sigh*. That’s why I always hang my clothes along the corridor out the lounge and it’s pretty annoying as they can’t be dry in the sun but never mind. It’s still better than getting them soaked and having to wash them off again. 2 more weeks till the semester starts. I’m going to the Orientation Day on Monday and I’m getting a bit excited about it. I went last semester but due to the programme shifting so this semester I need to go there again. Oops, I haven’t paid my tuition but I may leave it for later. Ain’t nobody got time for that, right? Haha. There are so many things to do. Cleaning up my room. I haven’t vacuumed the room for a couple of weeks. It’s not a mess but it’s not clean either. The bed is quite tidy. Actually, “sleep-able” is a better word choice but I definitely need to change the sheet and wash my duvet cover. Anyway, I’ll do some cleaning everyday after work so hopefully by this time next week, everything will be done and my room will be spotless. I need to email my manager to tell her my new availability as I’m going back to uni, which mean I’ll be able to work after my classes. My workplace is only 10 minutes walk away from uni anyway. I’ll do it next week. I’m also waiting for a pair of shoes to come. I ordered them from a shop online and it takes around 7 days to ship so they’re supposed to be here next Monday or Tuesday. They’re on sale, brown truffle dessert lace up ankle boots. I ordered one pair last night and found out that I have a promotion code for 15% off so I cancelled the order straight after but my credit card was still charged but hopefully the money will be returned soon. I still bought them at the end, with another 15% off so the shoes are only around $40 and they look very nice, low-heeled and sturdy. They’re good for uni as I need to walk a lot and I will get sore feet without comfy footwear.
Here’s how they look like: absolutely my style… because I’m an ankle boots junkieeeeeeeee
Sexy, huh? lol.
I was working yesterday and in my break, I went to have some lunch at a small place nearby the spa called Federal Delicatessen (obviously it’s on Federal Street kiki) and I wasn’t surprised the place was full of people. Weather has been so nice recently and no one want to miss a sunny Sunday hangout with friends and family and having good meals. I was in my uniform, a traditional Balinese one, which is made compulsory for all staffs in the spa to wear and people looked at me like I was an alien or a caveman. Well, no matter what they thought, I came in and ordered a bagel, Green Peace Bagel and enjoyed it with water because apparently, it is the most healthy drink even though the waitress did come and ask if I wanted a cup of coffee or some other drinks. I’m not a coffee lover and especially at this time, I’m trying to lose weight so I say no to all kinds of coffee and soft drinks. Water all the way. The bagel must be the most delicious beautiful bagel I’ve ever tried (I’ve only had bagels at McDonald’s, to be honest so there must be a huge difference between McDonald’s bagels and bagels in a professional restaurant) and the presentation was so beautiful. I have no idea how the guy made it but yes, it was worth that $14 even though I hardly spend that much money on a lunch at work. I was happy though. It’s been a long time I haven’t had chance to enjoy a nice lunch in a beautiful day. I’ve been burying myself into work and other stuffs and apparently, I forgot that I deserve to be happy and enjoy pretty little moments in life. I also forget how fast a good meal could improve my mood. Balance is the key of life. I always tell myself to balance everything, every elements, every factors that affect my life. I even have a tattoo on the back of my neck to remind me of making balance in everything I do. By the way, here’s my tattoo. The yin-yang symbol.
And my lunch also:
Look so exotic, doesn’t it? It tasted very nice too.
It was a steaming hot day today. I was working inside but still felt the heat. The weather was beautiful though. I was feeling sorry for some people who had to work outside in that intense heat. February is always the worst month of summer as it’s hot and sometimes very muggy. I’m not gonna complain because the weather here is far better than it in my country, especially in the summer. I’m having my fan on and it’s all good. My room is a little bit hotter than the others but I feel quite good actually. At least it’s not too cold in the winter. I don’t really remember how the heat of summer in Vietnam feels like but it’s surely worse than it is here. We used to have the air conditioning on all the time and I couldn’t sleep well without it.
What am I doing here? I had nothing to do so I decided to write something and here I am, telling all the nonsense and I just realized it was 11:11 and I was supposed to make a wish but I missed it because it’s 11:12 now. Haha. I’m having so many things to do and so many plans too. And future still looks so vague to me. I don’t know exactly what I really want to be or what I have to do to succeed. I only know to try my best at what I’m doing at the moment but well, whatever will be will be, right? We never know what’s gonna happen. I’m just trying to enjoy every moment as much as I can and work hard and (trying to) play hard.
Future is a big question but I’m glad to be here, to have a job, to have a seat in university, to have plans to do, dreams to dream and most importantly, to have a life to live and people to love. I should keep smiling and never lose hope in things.
Yes, there’s no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. Find peace and happiness in every moment you’re lucky to experience
La vie est belle! Life is beautiful
P/S: I freaking love these summer sleeping dresses that my mom bought me last year. They’re so cool and comfy. The fabric is so light that sometimes it feels like I’m wearing nothing. They are made for humid days like this. By the way, I’ve lost about 5kg lately by cutting carb in my diet and adding more water and vegetables. See my collar bones??? No? Well, I have a couple more kilos to lose anyway.
