A

abscond, v.
My head. Something I really needed help escaping from.

anticlimax, n.
The thing is, it isn't that you aren't the best thing that has happened to me because right now, you are. But there are just some days where things just doesn't seem right enough for me to find interest in nothing but you (like I always do).

You said that you cared about what people said about you and that's when I realised how different we were, two completely different worlds with unconnectable thoughts.
Why'd you care so much about what others thought about you? I thought.
You see, I would never mind anyone who did not matter to me.
And perhaps it was my fault for assumming the only important thing was that I cared and you knew it. Sadly, it wasn't. And I understood.
Maybe I am just as insignificant as the people that you care about a little bit too much, and that's how I understood my importance to you as well. Funny, because I was hoping that I mattered a little bit more.

assumptions, n.
You told me last night at 3a.m. that it was a very lonely night as if you were hinting that you wished i was by your side (now i'm wishing).
Countless times I have been hoping that you might think of me a little more than what we are right now, for example, the idea of you and I interests you and maybe all the love songs on your Recently Added playlist would remind you of me.
And when it was 3a.m. where you could have been sleeping or telling some other girl how you felt that night, you chose to tell me that you were lonely. And I appreciate that. 

attuned, adj.
I never knew the right things to say to people, especially those I've never talked to much. And when you finally cuckled at something I said, I knew just then that I've discovered the other side of you (the silly one of course). 

axiom, n.
In school, we learnt that it was best to date at seventeen and be in a relationship at twenty-one. Ridiculous as it sounds, maybe you believe in the education system and the fact that I will be seventeen in 10 months makes me so euphroic since I might be having you sooner than I thought.

Like the morning light, ...

"Life sometimes get too bogged down in the details, you forget you are living it. There is always another appointment to be met, another bill to pay, another symptom presenting, another uneventful day to be notched onto the wooden wall. We have synchronized our watches, studied our calendars, existed in minutes, and completely forgotten to step back and see what we've accomplished." - Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper

Recently, time seems to be passing doubly fast. From time to time, the fact that I'm in my final year of high school and almost in my final term hits me and I'll just stone for a while. Then I think about my school life, it's been an amazing one; no wonder they say that time flies when you're having fun. You know there's always this moment when you enter your thinking mode? You just think about things, all kinds of things as well as people. Good or bad, happy or sad. And when people ask you what you're thinking of, you just can't seem to find the exact answer to that question. Simply because you're thinking about everything you can remember at that moment. Some people like long bus rides, others perhaps prefer staring into space, people-watching, day-dreaming, blasting music, reading or even penning down their thoughts. The kind of things that people do to trigger their thoughts, many. I've come to understanding myself better this year, I think. Or maybe this happens to everyone as they age another year. 

But then, sometimes I reach a stage where I think that many are just furthering their studies because of societal expectations? Behavioral treatments? I don't know. And of course, we all know that education brings us a better life in future. So how many of us are actually pursuing a field of study that we actually see ourselves in that particular industry 20 years down the road? I have no idea where I'm heading towards actually. Sometimes, it's funny; when we're given different paths, we whine about being spoilt for choices. And yet, when we are directed on one path only, we whine that we have no choice. Sigh, life.

Hong Kong 2016

Hong Kong isn't an unfamiliar place to me. This is probably my 11th time to the land of dim sum. So, its mostly eating, shopping and eating again. We were booked on Cathay Pacific for direct flight to Hong Kong. Flight timing was pretty good considering how we literally booked only 1 and a half months before.




My 4-hour flight wasn't that restless with meals and in-flight entertainment.


We arrived HKG International Airport about 5-ish, then headed to my aunt's place.
DAY 2Had breakfast at Australian Dairy Company then walked along the streets of Yau Ma Tei. 


DAY 3: Breakfast was at Tsui Wah Cafe. Took advantage of doing shopping before shops closes for Chinese New Year. Also, I managed to give Emack and Bolio's ice-cream a try before calling it a day! 



DAY 4 & 5: HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR! Stayed up on the eve with the cousins and because we are fatties, hence the pasta at 2;12am. On the second day of New Year's, we went to Conrad Hotel to watch the fireworks display and headed to the Chinese Restaurant downstairs for dinner.

DAY 6: This time around, we made it a point where we had to visit the Big Buddha because we didn't really achieved our goal on going there whenever we went to Hong Kong, heh. Since we were done by 12-ish, we took the cable car back down and headed to the Macau Cafe at Tsim Sha Tsui. 




































DAY 7: Went out and about shopping again. Dinner was take-away sushi with my cousins. 

DAY 8: Had buffet brunch at the Peninsula Hotel, and it was the BEST buffet I've ever had in my life, hands down! Later at night, we watched From Vegas to Macau III. Supper was at Ichiran. LIVING THE FATTY LIFE! 



DAY 9:  Headed out for breakfast at Wan Chai and then met up with the cousin and his friend to go to a trampoline park. In the evening, my cousin brother took me to Little Bao before dinner at Megan's Kitchen for steamboat. Also, did a quick run to the grocery to do some last minute shopping of stocking up on Hong Kong yummies!






DAY 10: Left for the airport around 11-ish. Hong Kong, I miss you, but I'll be back soon!
