My priorities are crazy now that I’m getting older—taking care of myself, my body and my mind is one of the highest priorities I’ve invested in for the past several months (maybe years). I’m consider myself conventional. Old school. Things I do to myself—occasional run, old school exercising, taking care of my skin, sleep early—are self-care rituals that I consider important. As young adults, we’re … Continue reading TGIF 17th Oct: Taking Great Care of My Body & Mind
I had a Zine idea recently—but I don’t know if I should proceed or otherwise. I’m not obsessed with Zines, but since I’ve braved myself to put my writings out there in 2014, I’ve produced 4 zines all by myself and with my own hands: Imaginari 1, Imaginari 2, Venus Earth Marikh, Imaginareal. That is to say, I love the concept of approaching people with … Continue reading TGIF Oct 10th: Zines Are Personal.
It’s early November and I have nothing much going on, so you know what that means—IMPROVEMENT TIME! For the past few months it may seem like I didn’t do very much but there are ongoing projects under the surface. It’s November, and my manuscript’s done, I wrote several songs, I finished a 10km run, I met my celebrity crush, I had a demo recorded, performed … Continue reading TGIF Nov 3th: Improvement Time!

Doesn’t mean … Continue reading Everyday Is Growth Day: Just Don’t Stop
Remember when I said this blog is getting more personal come every post? We’ve come to this now, TGIF, Thank God It’s Friday. It’s going to be a weekly section where I just cram thoughts of the week into one short Friday posts and see if I can expand these thoughts into longer, better articles. I have a lot of thoughts, everyday. My brain never stops. … Continue reading TGIF Oct 13th: Midi Keyboard & Self Motivation
A short trip to MPH Vivacity after a post-hiking late lunch last Sunday made me left the premise with a book called ‘Lelaki Yang Tak Punya Apa-Apa Untuk Dipersia’ (translation: A Man Who Had Nothing To Lose), written by Hasrul Rizwan, who is definitely, I daresay, one of the bestselling authors in Malaysia’s local publishing scene. At night, after our visit to the hospital, I … Continue reading One Book At A Time
When I didn’t understand something, I gathered up the words scattered at my feet, and lined them up into sentences. If that didn’t help, I’d scatter them again, rearrange them In a different order. Repeat that a number of times, and I was able to think about things like most people. Writing for me was never difficult. Other children gathered pretty stones or acorns, and … Continue reading Wild Things Happens Below The Surface
