I’m actually in relatively good spirits this week even though I’m (still) coughing my lungs out and my feet are dotted with swollen mosquito bites. Maybe because I am too tired and lazy to summon the willpower/discipline to starve myself. If anything, I ate a lot of sinful food all week and it is just so comforting that I don’t want to think about calories.

Plus I suppose I can afford to cut myself some slack after all the hard work. I think I lost like 10 pounds??? Quite proud of myself even if my methods weren’t the healthiest. But at least I got here… I was looking at my photos from Feb and thinking how fat I was even though that’s only like 3 months ago.


And I also feel like everyone has been extra nice to me this week maybe because they can tell I’m not feeling my best.

I was feeling damn sian on Wednesday because my intern has been giving me a lot of problems. Then Karl and Mark asked me to go Jollibee with them for lunch but it was only noon (I usually can’t get away till 2pm) and I still had quite a few important articles to do.

At first I was like ok nvm… 😞 Then I realised eh fuck it la why can’t I fuck care this once and it’s not like I get this chance every day and it’s the perfect day for this since CK is not around and Farah is fasting. So I really left everything and disappeared for 2 hours. Mark drove and Karl paid and I felt sooo good eating pasta and fried chicken and fries.

I know it’s just lunch but I was unusually grateful for the respite from work and my miserable diet and self-torture. Mark said he has been eating health food for 7 months so he “really needed this” which I totally get.

Also had a lot of wine that night (2 bottles for 2 people but I think I drank more) then I both liquid vomited and word vomited omg what’s wrong with me.

On Thursday evening, someone actually cooked me a meal and brought it all the way to my office 😳 Even the gift was very thoughtful and I was touched by the effort. Then someone else gave me VIP tickets to the FAFF premiere on Friday which was enjoyable.

Thank you everyone ok I really appreciate all these nice gestures and when people say nice things instead of unwarranted shit. And it’s always nice knowing that there are people who care about me.

I also had a lot of fun this weekend unboxing and sorting several parcels that arrived from overseas! One of them was actually 7kg and contained the leatherbound classics that I ordered online 😂😂😂

Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics

SO PRETTY RIGHT WTF and they all have gilt-edged pages of gold and silver. Honestly they are not very cheap and more than what I would usually pay for a book but considering they are all special editions and collections of multiple stories, it’s quite worth it.

Just looking at them on my shelf makes me so happy 😊 My mother came into my room, shook her head and said I need to see a shrink for book obsession.

Oh and look, I am capable of upbeat posts ok.

I’m a nerd

I’m back to being the nerd I was during my childhood and teenage years.

Mostly because I moved house and finally have a wonderful built-in shelf that’s large enough to display all my precious books. And also because I joined Buzzfeed’s Facebook book club which really gets me in the mood to read. And not forgetting how glorious the new Yishun Library is (all those pristine new books!!!)

I feel like I’ve outgrown the romance genre because I’m now a cynic instead of the dreamy, idealistic, hopeless romantic that I used to be. Oh, life. Right now I’m super addicted to whodunit slashers and thrillers where couples screw each other over…

One of friends on Goodreads told me this and I realised she’s not wrong. If you wanna be more precise, I would say I’m most interested in books with domestic abuse and infidelity. What can I say, those topics intrigue me.

Reading is pretty much all I do in my free time now. I’m so lazy to update my blog or do anything else when I can just light my scented candle and slouch in bed with a book. Uninterrupted and tranquil. Such a simple pleasure.

Though I do wish I know someone in real life who’s as enthusiastic about books or reads as much so that I have someone to talk to about it. Sigh.
