RIP, Dolores

Found out about the news this morning. 

I love The Cranberries so much, I didn't know what to feel. Been listening to them since I was 12. Their songs are already a part of me so this really feels like a part of me has been ripped off.

I've always hoped and waited for their new material, and this, is so heart-breaking to me *cry*

Tak tahu nak tulis apa dah. Macam tak percaya. Sedih.

RIP, Dolores. Your voice and your pieces of art will always linger.




Hold onto love
that is what I do
now that I've found you
and from above
everything's stinking
they're not around you

And in the night
I could be hopeless
I could be lonely
sleeping without you

And in the day
everything's complex
there's nothing simple
when I'm not around you

But I miss you
when you're gone
that is what I do
and it's going to carry on
that is what I knew

Hold onto my hands
I feel like I'm sinking
sinking without you
and to my mind
everything's stinking
stinking without you.





Bukit Besar

Antara mercu tanda Kuala Terengganu, the iconic "Allah Peliharakan Terengganu" signage atas Bukit Besar. It has been there for as long as I can remember. 

Tapi masa ni, the hill was foggy so tak nampaklah signage tu:

pics were taken from Jambatan Sultan Mahmud


Sebenarnya kat Bukit Besar tu ada jogging track. My FIL memang rajin jogging naik atas sana. Kalau aku memang boleh kira dengan jari jelah berapa kali baru naik atas sana. Masa selalu tak mengizinkan *alasan* 

Tapi recently balik kampung, aku bulatkan hati, maka memang fully prepared and equipped (as in sports attire eheh), maka dapatlah jogging di situ lagi.

The jogging track:

haha, time ni mungkin tengah grasping for breathe, ambik gambar pun tak betul

Boleh nampak Masjid Kristal dan Taman Tamadun Islam sayup-sayup kat bawah tu

Turun naik bukit ni tak sampai 10,000 langkah pun, lebih kurang 3000-4000 steps macam tu je. Tak tinggi pun. Budak-budak kecik pun rilek je naik.

Uncle Tetsu

Kek keju goyang yang viral tu. 

Cheesecake dia datang dalam satu saiz ni dan ada 3 perisa kalau tak silap, original, coklat dan matcha. Ada jugak cheese tart dan Hat Series (macam bentuk muffin).

Kalau kat JB, boleh pergi Aeon Tebrau, tingkat atas, bertentangan dengan Pizza Hut.



Haishh, fluffy nya awak ni.

Not A Competition

I fought my battle
that you never knew of

and now you claim
you are stronger than me

I never talk about things that hurt me most
so how can you justify my pain?

How could you compare my catastrophe
when I can't even make you understand?

And the truth is,
you never will,
and you won't have to.

Because this is my battle
and it's not a competition

I don't have to be the stronger one
                       between us,
I just have to be strong enough
                      for myself.

Color Therapy

This coloring thing is very therapeutic, because it's very distracting. But depends on the pattern.

Aku suke pattern yang complicated macam ni:
Before

After (obviously, duh)

Dan kalau jenis yang banyak ruang kosong macam ni, terus turned off. Dan hasilnya memang tak memuaskan hati. Ruang-ruang kosong tu bila diwarna, nanti coloring line akan sangat visible, memang nampak tak cantik macam ni:





Dan lagi, aku sekarang guna color pencils cap FC ni. Kualiti graphite dia tu memang menyakitkan hati. Warna dia tak terang dan ada certain sides on the graphite tu yang warna tak keluar langsung. Nak kena beli cap Luna lah lepas ni, tapi mahal pulak.

This thing is very distracting (to my mind) because I don't like to just use any colors to fill up the patterns. Aku nak kena cari color combination yang kontra (color-blocking) atau yang similar tone. Lebih kurang macam tulah. So memang tak fikir mende lain dah bila buat ni.

Antara hasil-hasil terdahulu:





Dah dekat dua tahun mengusahakan buku ni (on and off), tapi tak sampai separuh pun lagi yang dah berwarna.

The Coffee Battle

Ni antara top 3 brands inside the chillers of every gas station's mini mart and 7Eleven. Selalunya memang beli Wonda, tapi hari tu masa aku mintak belikan kopi dalam tin, pakcik pi beli Nescafe dan Pokka sebab Wonda tak ada katanya. Eh, pakcik? Drama TV3 sangat..😜



Gigih korek recycle bin nak ambik gambar tin Wonda ni 


So, which one is the best?

*drum rolls

*rolling eyes* saspenlah sangat!


For me, it's Wonda. Yang lagi dua tu, bagi aku ada something off kat rasa dia. Or maybe I'm a bit bias, sebab selama ni memang minum Wonda.

Sushi King Member Card

Punyalah lama tak pergi. Membership card dah expired 2016, baru renew untuk 2018.



Dan terms dia dah berubah rupanya. Daripada dapat off 10%, sekarang dapat voucher. Voucher tu pulak boleh redeem untuk next visit, di branch yang sama, ada expiry date pulak tu. Tak convenient lah bagi aku.

Kalau macam ni, rasanya takkan renew lagi dah lepas ni. Dengan aku yang dah tak ada kaki makan nak makan sushi kat jaybee ni. Kalau ajak husband, dia layankan jugak kadang-kadang tu, tapi dia tak suka sushi. Aku pulak jenis kalau orang lain tak enjoy, aku berkali-kali ganda lagi jadi tak enjoy. Nak pergi sorang tak syok sebab aku tak boleh makan banyak, nanti 2 plates je dah kenyang. Kalau gi ramai-ramai bolehlah share-share, dapatlah rasa lebih sikit.

Jadi nak makan sushi sekarang kena tunggu balik kampung. Sebab adik-beradik semua hantu sushi, tapi tulah balik pun sekejap-sekejap, selalunya tak terkejar masa nak pi Kuantan nak makan sushi tu.

Eh, sebenarnya nak cakap takkan renew lagi dah lepas ni, tapi jauh pulak melencong sana sini. Yelah, bila dapat voucher macam tu, kemungkinan besar voucher tu akan burnt je nanti kan. Sedihh..

Gambar kenangan.
