Weekly Wishes #55

Let's recap on last week's goals!

The books sitting in the cart are finally checked out! Woohoo! Totally excited to see them in my letter box!

Worked on wardrobe with brother yesterday, managed to clear out for more. The cleaning was initially by brother, and the charity leaflet was slotted at our door in time to get us moving.

Planning a bogus holiday didn't happen at all, though I had fun reading other travel blogs.

This week's goals:
• Start shopping for Fill My Stocking swap. I'm pretty excited about this, it's like doing Christmas shopping waaay in advance!
• Brainstorm for Lovely Letters September. The theme is COMFORT and I only can think of one thing. Need to think out of the box more than that.
• Start these morning stretching exercises. You should know by now I'm a lazy bum, but these stretching seems do-able since I don't need to move too much. Heh.

Happy September! I don't know about you, but it never fail to feel refreshed when making a list of goals on the first day of a brand new month. I have been itching to swap snail mail with somebody ever since I realised I could add waishi tape as decoration to envelopes. I don't know what took me so long.

All the best for what you're wishing for this week!

Week's End

// Colourful writing papers, envelopes with added waishi tapes, stickers. I am quite proud of myself with these loots! Got them for a stationery swap but I'm not sad to part with them since they aren't my type of writing instruments. I'm happy how the waishi tapes and envelopes turned out though, it's definitely something I will incorporate in future mails.

// Other than filling up Google Calendar and Wunderlist, I'm trying out something different by writing a to-do-list just for weekends. I really like the idea of highlighting done items as suggested by Melyssa! Pretty excited to see if this is my kind of thing.

// For the longest time, I have mentioned about the crave for iced tea. I finally get a Shaken Iced Lemon Tea with Hibicus and boy do I hate it. I'm not sure if it's the acidic level of lemon or that hibicus flavour. Only way to find out is to try its green tea flavour.

// I have no problem bumming around the house during weekends, but I'm glad I was out when the weather was this good. Blue sky makes me happy.

You guys, it's officially the last day of August! I have a nagging voice inside that is warning me about the number of times "Wake me up when Septembers ends" I'll be seeing tomorrow. Sorry, but the joke is getting old. Too told. On a lighter note, I'm having mixed feeling about how fast the time is going by. Sure I am happy as well J and I are slowly inching towards our solemnization period (this word because we have yet to set on a date), but scary to feel there is not much achievements done. I am sure it is not the case, but it just feels like that at the moment.

Anyhoo, have a great day ahead!

Some of ME

Katie from The Hungry Goat asked:

1. What book are you currently reading?
Currently not any books since I haven't purchase any new ones. My last read was Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor & Park.

2. If you could eat dinner with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Is it too cheesey to say Ariel from The Little Mermaid? I'd like to see her comb hair with fork dinglehopper.

3. What's your next house/apt/condo project?
J and I do have plan buying an apartment and reside there after we get married. Right now we are waiting for new blocks to start building at our ideal areas, with pricing that don't really kill us too much. We are not really rushing into *snap* buying a house and *snap* decorating it. First, I need to get J clean up his room and allocate a table for me. Baby, if you are reading, you know this is an obvious hint to you. ;)

4. What's your favorite place to visit?
The trip to Langkawi years ago was the most memorable one. I'd like to visit Australia one day though!

5. If you could do anything for a living that you would automatically get the skills to do, what would it be?
Draw! Oh, how I wish I have mad creativity skills.

6. What movie have you seen that was better than the book (or at least matched its greatness)?
Because I haven't really that much, the only book-turn-movie I know of is The Fault In Our Stars. The thing is, I have yet to watch the film.

7. Go out to eat or dine in?
Erm... I'd love to dine in but too lazy to clean, so dining out is the solution.

8. What's in your junk drawer?
Lots of junk? Haha! Let's see, waishi tapes, envelopes, origami paper.

9. Beer or wine?
Actually, none. I don't fancy the taste of beer and/or wine.

10. What would your super power be and why?
Teleportation! Save on transport, pop at J's place to cuddle anytime I love to, save time.

11. What are you grateful for this week?
Knowing I am alive and the extra time spent with J this week is making me really grateful somehow.

Thanks Katie for tagging me! Hopefully you've know me a little better. If you guys are interested, feel free to attempt the above questions by commenting your answers below or post your blog post link. I'm looking forward to read them!
