Me and My Non-Dress-Sense of Style.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll probably find dress shopping a difficult task to uphold. Here’s what you can do to ad-dress your sense of style. Go online and find out what is your body shape and how to dress it. Trust me, it’ll help you out a great deal. As a child, I used…

Saturday Night Fever.

It’s not what you think. Definitely not the movie starring John Travolta. And it definitely has nothing to do with the Bee Gees’ song either. It was the first thought that came to mind when I came down with high fever last night. I still have no idea what the cause of the fever was…

Admiring My Little Empire Aristocrat.

I fell in love with typewriters when I first saw them on Pinterest and Tumblr. I often caught myself envying the people who owned them. But I didn’t know where to get them in Malaysia. Until my husband bought one for my 30th birthday. It was a vintage model called the Antares 280. I’m not…

Photography: Monochrome and Me.

Photography has never been a hobby that I would associate myself with while growing up. In fact, I never thought I would one day be addicted to it. My family used to travel a lot and those were the times when we’d use the camera most. We shared a Kodak film camera, though the time…

There’s No Such Thing As Having Too Many Books!

You know what they say, Not enough shelf space? No problem. Just shove a thing or two here, rearrange that vase, move some of the figurines aside… and voila! I think there should be enough room for at least two or three books. It’s not a lot but it’ll have to do. Sounds familiar? When…

I Love (Big) Books, and I Cannot Lie.

Do you know what piques your interest? Do you know what tickles your fancy? Do you know what catches your eye, and makes you go “Ooh!” and “Aah!”? For me, it’s books. I love books, and I love to read. I love reading so much that when I’m in a bookstore, I can say with…

First World Reader Problems #1.

A bibliophile is defined as a “lover of books; one who loves to read, admire, and collect books.“ You can find many book lovers and avid readers on Tumblr who constantly share their readership and kinship with their books with you through their pages. I, for one, am like them, and I share the same…

The Dell from Hell.

When I enrolled in college, my first laptop was a Dell. And it was Hell. After a year, the laptop began to show signs of wear and tear, and the battery life started draining by the chunks on a regular basis. And I only used it for college assignments and basic web surfing. I rarely…

A Housewarming Mission.

The process often begins like this: You see a place you like and you start saving up for it. You go on window shopping sprees and make little notes on what you might get, what you could get, and what you should definitely get. You dream of when you finally move in, and decorate it…

Coming Back For More.

It’s all about customer satisfaction, customer loyalty and repeat customers. Many companies fail to wake up to reality and learn the positive correlation among all three. Satisfy a customer and you will earn his or her loyalty, and in turn, that customer will come back for seconds, and thirds, and very soon, you will have…

Tickling His Fancy.

My cat is a male but he’s still four months old. He’s not small anymore, and he’s growing up fast. Which means his appetite is growing too. And so are his energy and capability to last throughout the day. At first, my husband and I were unable to provide proper cat toys for him so…

Books on Impulse.

I don’t often buy my books from MPH, Border’s or Times Bookstore because their prices per book can be quite expensive. RM35.90 for a book is considered expensive, especially since they have warehouse book sales nowadays where books go for prices as low as RM8.00. I’d fall for those prices hook, line and sinker! But…

Time to Converse.

For many years since learning of its existence in Malaysia, I’ve tried (and failed on many attempts) to convince my mum that Converse is wearable by both men and women. To my mum, the design and colours look very much ‘male’ (although I’m not so sure how she got to that conclusion, though, mothers being…
