when the mirror speaks, the reflection lies
still trying to figure out who i am

the family came back from their vietnam trip last night. as great as it was to have the entire house all to myself for the short duration they were away, it is still better to be waking up to people snoring instead of complete silence haha

they got me some nice gifts, including a pair of black ballet flats!! i was super happy because the shoes i bought online came on friday, but it was super upsetting that 3 of them were oversized even though it was my usual size T_T and i was desperate for a black shoe so the flats came at a perfect timing, thank god.

and, then i heard from kakak that abah’s pain got worst on their first day there. she said they had to keep resting after walking a few distance and that night, abah kept sitting up and laying down on the bed and couldnt sleep. that was major worrying because.. abah doesnt really voice out the pain, so we dont know exactly how exactly he’s feeling, or how painful it really is.

i also found out that my uncle was actually afraid of flying too. he recollected a time when the plane he was in went through a bad turbulence, and then he said “kereta, kalau kereta berhenti, maseh kat road kan? kapal kalau berhenti, maseh ada laut kan? tapi kalau kapal terbang berhenti?” this is also why i fear flying.

ibu and bik dah’s planning to go vietnam again before raya next year to buy some kain. im not sure if they’ll go ahead with the plan but im tempted to join them if they do!

i caught The Heirs’ virus pretty late, and im only at its 8th episode now. but im so glad i started watching it though. otherwise i wouldnt have known kim woobin existed!! 😊

i didnt like him in the beginning and his eyebrows annoy me, but after a while, he just grows on me. and i love the bad boy character he’s playing. he’s perfect!! and hot too *fans self*

i mean, just look at him! why so perfect 😭

was watching ‘there was a time’ on channel 5 just now and the episode was about the racial riots in singapore.

hearing abah’s account of when he was a teenager back when all those fights and bombs were going on was interesting. his kampung is in geylang area and he said the bombs going off here and there was pretty much an everyday-sound.

i asked him “abeh bila you dengar bunyi bom, you buat apa? you tak panic ke?” and all he replied was “buat apa? kita lari kluar tengok ah. nak panic buat apa. everyday dengar bunyi bom.”

it was supposed to be a box of chocolates, but it ended up being a bottle of beer instead 😅 the story behind it is pretty amusing- jo had a good laugh about it. well at least the recipient was appreciative of it! “siti, the three of us are sharing this!” haha
