Here’s another part of my travel log: paying a visit to Legoland Malaysia. We obviously love amusement parks (who doesn’t?). Obviously had fun albeit advising y’all to wear sunscreen and be prepared for long walks around the park. We cooled off at a 4D theater which showed short Lego films and was delighted when sprinkled with water (because you know, 4D). Massively enjoyed cooling off and pointing and squealing at Star Wars novelties at the souvenir shop. I did not resist the force to get my hands on a couple of them (pun intended).
Here’s a little dilemma I’d like to share whilst shopping for a shirt. I was having a hard time looking for a shirt that would fit me + a design I loved. I went around the shop countless times but eventually settled on a kid’s shirt that was a few sizes too small. I politely asked if they had it in teen’s size but unfortunately they didn’t. Losing all hope, I went back to where the shirts are situated, grabbed the largest size and prayed to the gods and goddesses that it would fit me. Back at the hotel, I put the shirt on and almost melted of relief because the shirt fits! Maybe it’s not a bad thing to be small after all.
Although I had an amazing time, the park has yet to improve. Also want to go back soon because of a Star Wars mini park!
P.S. Now everyone knows of my Star Wars obsession.
Our first stop in Singapore was Gardens by the Bay. We weren’t able to visit this on our first trip to Singapore due to lack of time. The place was huge which lead me to incessantly complain about how my feet were hurting. The place looked beautiful by day and majestic by night. The photos obviously don’t do it justice. I recommend visiting it since it has no entrance fee (except for the entrance to the sky bridge which I also recommend unless you’re afraid of heights—like me—because you won’t be able to enjoy the view).
P.S. Sorry it took too long. School got in the way (when did it not?)
I’ve been reflecting on my life for quite some time now—from the people I’ve been constantly latched on to, new experiences with new people, new found love and appreciation (for the things happening in my life recently), lost friendships found, and the list goes on and on. I realized how much I haven’t been living recently. Like, really living. I traced back my activities from the past month (barring my exciting days) and I see a cycle of incessant oversleeping during weekday afternoons and starting a new series (Once Upon A Time) instead of reviewing for college exams. How productive.
Also, I’ve realized that I’ve been labeling blogging as a job that I’m supposedly be forced to do. From here, I’d like to commit myself to blogging because of the love I have for it. I’m starting my journey with my being back to blogging today (hopefully).
P.S. Thinking of recreating my blog (I spy inconsistent me trying to resurface and say hello) for the nth time
I admit to being a terrible blogger. I did not intend to write a blog entry tonight but the excessive problems that I’ve been encountering in LoL (League of Legends, in case you didn’t know) convinced me otherwise. There’s absolutely no excuse as to what I’ve been doing these past few days. I’ve been trying to be a better blogger—under a shade that is. I’ve been drafting posts from my trip to Singapore and Malaysia (which was like, a month ago). I’m trying, really. It will probably be up soon. Real soon.
It’s exactly 2:35 (at least that’s what my clock currently says) and basically I need to pick up a gift for my friend, prepare my outfit and my things for the party later, meet up with a friend at 5:30 then head to our friend’s party. Stay there from 6-7:30 then I have to go home alone to try and catch my volleyball training (I missed two meetings in a row so I need to attend this one). My training starts at 6 then ends at 8 so I probably only have 15 minutes to train.
Let me just say, I hate overlapping schedules. They make me crazy. Also, the procrastinator in me is stopping by and saying hello (she’s writing this entry instead of doing said things above). Good luck to me.
Let’s Talk: TV Shows
Since summer has yet to end, we still have a month before saying goodbye to late nights, long hours of sleeping, and the beach and all it’s glory (or in my case—chlorine-filled pools).
If you guys didn’t know, I have a penchant for TV shows—series, if you may. I enjoy marathoning (yes, that is now a word) heaps of episodes all in a day. Here’s a few of my favorite TV series and a couple that I really need to finish:
The Vampire Diaries
This is the first ever series I started. I started watching it when I was a freshman in high school. I love vampires but not to the point that I’d actually kill to be one. I can assure you that this series is a must watch. The Vampire Diaries is now on it’s 5th season. But hey, if I can catch up, you can too.
You need to watch this because Dylan O’Brien and Daniel Sharman. That’s all I can say. Okay, I’m kidding. Before anything else I would like to tell you guys that I’ve never liked werewolves (maybe as animals, but as fictional characters? nah). But ever since I started Teen Wolf (last year), my love for wolves blossomed. It’s that good, I swear. Teen Wolf just finished season 3-B and season 4 is (hopefully) on it’s way!
The Carrie Diaries
Just recently started this amazing series. The Carrie Diaries is really fun and light and perfect for teenagers like myself. It teaches tons of things and gives perfect advice. I’m looking forward to continuing this because I really really like it.
Awkward is a really entertaining series. I really enjoy watching it but that doesn’t necessarily mean that I love it. Although if you start this, you will be jealous of Jenna. I warned you. Awkward is now on it’s 4th season (I think).
I started this series ages ago. This is actually one of my favorite series. I finished season 5 last year so hopefully I can start season 6 soon since it’s summer and all. Also, Gossip Girl ended last 2012.
Pretty Little Liars
Currently stuck in season 2. Pretty Little Liars isn’t really my cup of tea but it is intriguing. I started this ages ago and I really want to know what happened to the girls.
This is actually a new series. The reason why I started this is because I was told that it was a modern day Romeo and Juliet (hence the title?) and you guys know (okay, probably not) that I’m a sucker for anything Romeo and Juliet. If you liked I Am Number Four (the movie because I haven’t read the book), maybe this will tickle your fancy too. Starcrossed is only on it’s first season.
I also want to start a new series so if you have any suggestions, feel free to leave them on my ask box!
While half of the country’s population is probably soaking up the sun (sand, beach waves, etc.), here I am soaking up radiation from my gadgets. I was given a chance to bathe in a chlorine filled pool and I blew off my chances. I only stayed in the pool for 3 hours. I swear I’m only regretting it now. Also, I did not take a lot of pictures (what with the lack of waterproof gadgets which I need to save up for) because I wouldn’t risk the life of my camera for pictures (lol).
Hope everyone is having an amazing summer!
The Versatile Blogger Award
No fancy photo to accompany this entry because I don’t have Photoshop on this computer I’m using at the moment so that sucks.
- First, thank the person who awarded you and include the link to their blog.
- Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly and include a link to their blog.
- Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself in your blog post.
Again, thank you to ate Je!
Here are the 15 bloggers I choose:
Here’s 7 random facts about me:
- I joined the Tumblr family last April 30, 2011.
- I am a clean freak but I don’t mind having a messy room.
- My dream destination is Florida. Not Paris nor New York nor LA (well I love those too a LOT), but Florida.
- I like hospital food.
- I have been scolded by my mom a number of times for being weird.
- We own life sized characters namely: ET, Darth Vader, R2D2, a Stormtrooper (I think) and an alien from Aliens and Predators. All of them scares me (except for Vader) and thank God they’re already stored in the garage.
- I get jealous easily.
So that’s that I guess. I’m about to prepare for a TVD marathon with my friends so I’m signing off at the moment.
January, February and March Wrap Up(?!)
I should be catching up on YouTube videos I haven’t watched but said platform is crashing and acting all strange and funny so I thought, what better alternative than to write blog posts since I’ve been MIA for the past month(?) or two (??). Either way, here I am sitting on my bed, listening to an acoustic playlist I found on 8tracks, and trying to write a decent blog entry. Enough chitchat. Let’s move on.
During a span of 3 months, I was able to read a total of… *queue drum roll*
4 books. Wow. That is a new record, just… wow. I’m in a major reading slump, don’t judge.
Catching Jordan by Miranda Kenneally
Read my review on Catching Jordan here.
Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler
I loved Twenty Boy Summer. I won’t be raving about it here that much but I will be writing a review about it on my Goodreads.
How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World by Jordan Christy
How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World is my first non-fiction read. It’s like a little guide on being classy like Audrey. Not my favorite non-fiction book. I think it only filled my mind with too much information that doesn’t really cover the main idea of the book. The author kept going around in circles and I was convinced she was at lost for words so she was just gibberish (at least to me) during the second half of the book.
A and D by Louisse Carreon
A&D was your average Wattpad story. Sure it was cute but it wasn’t my cup of tea. It was okay.
I hope I could finish the books I started to read but again, i’m in a reading slump (hopefully not for long). But you know, it’s okay to take a break every once in a while. After all, at the end of the day it’s still our choice to make whether we pick something up or not.
