January Favourites | 2019

Another month another favourites or recap to some. I was staring at the blogger dashboard for more than 10 minutes trying to find my words about my January and I couldn't find the right words so I decided to just write whatever comes into my mind while staring at this. Does any other blogger once experience a phase like this? Where you just don't know what to write when the day or the night before you had everything planned in your head? If not, then I guess it's just me then.
So, my January? It was mediocre but I had a few fun times and lots of delicious food. I was bedridden the whole month that I was too annoyed to go out. Even while I was watching movie, I can't stop sneezing and coughing and I was starting to get frustrated with myself for disturbing all people especially my sister and her husband but hehe I managed to watch the whole movie though. So here's my January favourites.

NEW BULLET JOURNAL COVER
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
So I made a new cover for my bullet journal and I added a few stuff in it to make it easy for me to make a spread or write an entry whenever I feel like it. It looks simple than before and I didn't use permanent glue or tape because I can reuse the photos whenever I want. I also added a new keychain because I just love keychains or cute charms. On the cover I put a pink sweater, frappe drink and an iPhone, everything indicates what I love in a form of small washi stickers. I'd probably change it again according to the season. We'll see. And I will share what's inside my binder bullet journal soon because a lot of you asked me whether I'm using a card slots, washi dividers, index dividers etc. Just to end your curiosity, why not.

CAKE BUN
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
So, one night after a long outing with my sister, we stopped by at convenient store or a grocer (not really sure how to call it) to buy some cat food and litter sand, I found this cake bun. It reminds me of old time when I used to eat a lot of cake bun by Intisari Bakers. Now, every time I crave for it, I know where to find it. It tasted just as good as Intisari Bakers cake bun and it was delicious.

NCT 127 LENTICULAR PHOTO CARDS
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
All the way from Korea. I think everyone knows what lenticular is. I hope my friends doesn't see this blog post because I told them one of my 2019 resolutions is to stopped spending money on NCT or any stuff that I don't need. To be honest, I ordered this on early December of 2018 but the postage started on early Jan as I was told by the seller when I want to place my order. So yeah, technically I still keeping my promise. I was asked by some of y'all Jaehyun's fans to make a post about this because y'all want to see a closer look at all the photo cards. So I already drafted it along with all the photos but I think I should compiled other stuff I bought from twitter in one post to save your time (and mine too).

PERAK, 2D1N







━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━ 
We went to Parit, Perak for my cousin's wedding. It was fun because I get to see my whole family again. We ate so much and laugh just as much. My dad played tour guide because that is his hometown and he knows every crooks and corners at the back of his hands and he even look super excited when my sister wants to buy some fermented and dried fish at Lumut Waterfront. I was the one who was suffering because I sat at the very back and imagined how many times I had to fold and unfold the chair to come out. Man, my back hurts but it was good kind of hurts. I'll do it again if I get the chance.
 ━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

SALAD OBSESSION
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Some of you may not know but I have starting my diet plan last month and I decided to go with salad and fibre diet. I made my own salad just the way I like it and I like a good dressing. Those chicken wings and nuggets are not mine though. I want to achieve my goal by July or better yet, before Eid would be nice. Hopefully I could.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

INSTANT FAMILY
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Last week I went to watch Instant Family with my sister and her husband. At first I was not feeling it because I'd rather watch something else but then again, orang dah belanja takkan kita nak banyak songeh pulak kan? haha but as soon as the movie started I can't stop laughing but most importantly I couldn't stop feeling annoyed with their oldest foster daughter's character. played so well by Isabela Moner and how I kept saying to myself, how wonderful it would be to have a nice parents that would die for you, and would give the world to you and yet you treated them like trash but they'd still fight for you. I cried at the hair brushing scene because it reminds me of my late mom and then I cried again at the end of the movie because it was so beautiful. If you haven't seen this movie, you should. Full of moral value, love and most importantly, comedy. hahaha!

OREO ICE CREAM
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
We have a usual mamak restaurant that we ALWAYS go to and by 'always' I mean EVERY NIGHT and every morning for my dad. My point is, I know every new menus and stuff they added at their restaurant and one of them is the Oreo ice cream. I know some people having trouble to find this ice cream and here I am with a proud face, mamak kita ada ice cream ni!! hahahaha and trust me. when I said I eat this every day. But I stopped now that I'm dieting. Too bad.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

PEZZO'S OH MY CHEESE PIZZA
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
Pezzo pizza slice is one of the go-to food that I always buy whenever I went to my dad's workplace, waiting for him at any coffee shop with a book or my laptop. I'm a big pizza eater, I could eat a whole pie of it all by myself without feeling vile. And as a big fan of pizza, I know a few truly good pizza place. Aside from Domino's and Mikey's NY, I like Pezzo's pizza slice. It's very underrated, cheap and the slice is huge. And my personal favourite is the pepperoni pizza but last month they had a 'Limited Time Only' flavour which was the Oh My Cheese, made with 3 different cheeses and boy, it was so good. I hope they make it again or put it up as a permanent menu. It was THAT good.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

AIR HUMIDIFIERS
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━
I bought one air humidifier (the very left) last year for myself and I like the effect on me so I decided to buy another 3, one for my dad, one for my sister's newborn (soon) baby, and another one to put in the middle of our living room. This is not an aroma diffuser so I did not use any essential oils. I just purely want some moisture in the air that's all. I love the 'Deer' humidifier because it's automatic. The nightlight is set to one hour and the spray is set to 4 hours so I don't need to worry when I put it on before I go to bed, because it turns off by itself.
━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

So yes, that's all for January. I wish I had more stuff to share but sadly I did nothing to talk about it as much. I just hope February won't be too boring or dull or a failure. I'll see you guys in my next post. I realised that I stop posting about South Korea, so my next post will be about that. Thank you for reading and much love from me, T.

      Tbh, it wasn't that hard. Semua gambar2 yang Tqa tangkap, I'll transfer it to my hard disk and put them in file according to the year and monthly sub folder.
      Bila sampai masa nak recap, I'll just choose beberapa gambar yang brings back a lot of fun and memorable memories from that month. Easy :)
      Kan? I feel so guilty. Hehe Tqa pun takde lah muda mana, I'll be 30 in 3 years, itupun still tak sedar diri 😆
      Sure, why not! I'll try to share my recipe one day (padahal takdelah special mana, sayur + chicken + egg + dressing) haha
      Boleh je if you put your heart into it but I know how you feel, all that delicious food, tak boleh tahannnn!!!

    1. Thanks, tu lah mula2 nak journal biasa je then lama2 tu rasa macam banyak pulak sticker, stamp and washi tape dalam bilik so I decided to go with bullet journal instead.
      Dulu pun saya makan salad simple je tapi lepas tengok menu2 salad yang I could eat for my diet, so setiap hari dapatlah tukar2 sikit menu so takdelah muak hahaha nak ikutkan I'll just do like what you said, lettuce, tomato and dressing.
      Thank you Carly 😊

  7. I am so jealous of every post you made. hahahahahahaa but in a good way of course. it actually makes me want to write more, but you know, TIME CONSTRAINT are limiting me from even writing a blog post. I've only got the time to watch all your insta stories and always said to myself to later go visit your blog but it didn't happen until it's february. there's no other reason than me being busy with life and the fact that i am loving whatever i am doing now makes it even harder for me to be able to be a good and constant blogger. hehe but today i am even happier cuz i was able to visit my own blog and others as well as i get to read this post of yours too. yaaayyy (can you see how excited i was hahahah, sorry)

    1. I totally understand, don't worry about it. Nanti when you got the time to write again, you know I'll be reading it regardless of time and place.
      Tbh, I envy you. Because you got your own life to deal with right now and like you said, you're loving it. Who wouldn't want that? I don't have a life that's why I can write as often as I can hahahaha (but not that the other active bloggers has no life)

      Yay! Hahaha yeah I can see that! Don't be sorry. I'm happy to hear from you anyway :)

  9. Your blog layout is really fitting - Immaculate! So gorgeous, too. What's your favourite salad dressing - care to share? I'm trying to practice fruit & vegie diet at least once a week & intermittent fasting at least twice a week - but so far it has been impossible. Hope your diet is a success. Really is challenging when the family is eating everything nice.

    1. Finally, someone notice it. hahaha Thank you so much :)
      Before I started my diet, my favourite dressing is from kewpie. Any flavour at all.
      But now, my dressing is plain mayonnaise.

      There are certain fruits that I can eat so I only added those fruits in my diet. Yang lain memang tak makan langsung because I hate fruits. haha

      For my salad, I change it up everyday. Sometimes I added boiled chicken (sikit je), sometimes boiled eggs, sometimes boiled hotdogs (bila malas) and I sometimes I mix everything to eat with wholegrain bread. and bila betul2 malas, I just eat roti wholegrain with plain mayonnaise. (I think I'm slightly obsessed with mayonnaise lol!)

      Really? Ahh... I hope the result will appear visible for you soon. That's the thing about diet, bila tak nampak result, kita mula patah semangat and then go "f**k it, I'm going to eat whatever I want". It was almost impossible for me too but once I see the result, terus rasa happy and excited. Super enthusiast to keep it going.

      Alhamdulillah, now I'm adding a small exercises in it. Hopefully my diet will be a success sooner than I expected.
      Oh, tell me about it!!
      They be having western food, KFC, McD, Carls Jr and all kinds of junk food, malaysian home cooked meal in front of me. I just have to find a decent alternatives EVERY. TIME.

      Good luck to you too. I will pray that you will achieve your target soon :)
