Stress and Retail therapy.


Well, with a month left on the clock to my exams. It's getting a little stressful. But the crappy thing about me is that the more stressed I get, the more I have to destress which is not really good. Because I really do need to focus on my studies.

I don't know why but lately, I started to go online shopping. 

I bought some stuff online. But that's alright because I do need those stuff.

When you are busy and can't really go out to buy stuff, online shopping is a life saver.

Honestly, I have never been a shopping person. 
I never found comfort in retail therapy unlike some girls.

To be honest, I have found shopping really annoying.
Mostly because I can't afford it and I can't find stuff that I like. 

Somehow, recently, I started looking at smartwatches. (I think I really like gadgets. hahaha)

I wanted something that would tell the time, tell me my steps, the calories I burned and give me notifications from my phone.

At first I looked at Fitbits and they were expensive.
Then, I started looking at cheaper alternatives.

And in the end, I actually managed to find one.

I never considered myself to be an impulsive shopper. I like to think of myself as a rational consumer.
Someone who thinks through her purchases.
Someone who is good with her money.

So I'm rather surprised that a huge part of me wants to just press the buy button. 

Funny fact is, I don't even wear watches normally.
But suddenly, I want a smart watch for my "exercising" reasons. 
I'm not sure how good my justifications are.

So I'm breathe. And give myself the normal one week cooling period whenever I make a big purchase.



This is the Vidonn X6. The smart watch that I found that suits my needs and pricetag. It costs about $124. 
Its functions is that it tells me the time, the steps I take, the calories I burned, the distance I walked and notifications from my phone.

Do you think I should buy it though?



Do I buy that smartwatch?

Yes
No

Much Ado About Our Healthcare

During this week, something terrible but hilarious when you looked back, happened to me.

It was a normal Monday morning. It was close to the end of the month, so I was awaiting for my salary to come in. I was just trying to just hold on till the end of the month. Typical monday. Nothing eventful yet.

Then, it was lunchtime.
I went to lunch with my colleagues.
I ordered myself a lovely nasi kukus with ikan keli. That means steamed rice with catfish for those of you who don't read malay. 

One of my colleague often order this and it always looked good so I decided to give it a try.

Bad mistake.

I ended up having a fishbone stuck in my throat. When you think of it, it's pretty silly. But it scared the living daylights out of me at that moment. I tried swallowing rice to push the fishbone down but after half a bowl later, I found it to be not working.

I heard from my dad when I was younger that, if a fishbone get stuck in your throat, you had to do an operation. And that only fueled my fea…

An open letter to the scared and confused dreamers.

This is a letter for myself. But this is also a letter for those who find themselves in the same place as I am.

I'm going to admit that life is different from what I initially thought when I was younger.

When I was younger, I assumed that by now, I would have reached or be somewhat close to the life of my dreams.

But now that I reach this point, I realised that I was wrong. I did not take into account that tertiary education took years. Personally, I don't regret my tertiary education because I did enjoy it. Yes, it was insane and difficult but it was fun and I met amazing people there.

It's been a year since my graduation and I find myself being frustrated. I felt disappointed in myself because no, I don't have my own apartment and no, I'm not rocking that cool ass job that I always  dreamed of. But no, I don't hate my job either. In that sense, I'm fortunate I suppose. But I feel that it may not be the kind of thing that I want to do.

However, for me, to get t…

Alter ego, SUIT UP!!

Man, it feels odd to have people believe in you at the very moment you do not trust yourself. It feels odd to hear people's praises of you when you're feeling incapable. So I guess, it's time for one of my many alter ego to suit up if I wanna win that debate competition!!

Like any other person, I have many alter ego's...and I'm gonna list most of them today.


Ms Drama Queen
Likes :Attention and spotlight. She's a diva.
Dislikes :People stealing her spotlight or not getting her spotlight.
She is : A real drama queen. She whines & complains alot though. She thinks that the world revolves around her.
Can't handle :Ms Productive


Ms Arrogant
Likes : Winning, winning and winning.
Dislikes : Losing and losers.
She is : A real mean arrogant person. She really doesn't care about the other people. She thinks she is the best. Mostly, she thinks that her opponents aren't even her equal unless they have proven otherwise. Even then, she still thinks she is better than …
