In 2018, I read a lot, 86 books to be precise. Well, “a lot” is subjective since there are a great number of people who read way more than me (I wonder, what do they do for a living? Do they have a secret meditative recipe for reading so many books? If so, do you think they will share it with me if I ask them really really nicely?), but for my standard, that is quite a number.
To be quite honest with you, I didn’t even realise. I just read, read and read more. I do love books (!). I have always been surrounded by books since my dad is also a bibliophile, I remember him making a small library in our old house, complete with codes on his books as well as a sort of system for people to borrow (I’m pretty sure he lost some of his books to people borrowing and never returning – honestly those kind of people!).

Sipping my tea at Majestic Café in Porto, Portugal, I couldn’t help but feeling dreamy. Yes this café might just be a tad bit touristy but who cares? It was definitely worth the visit.
The front door of the café was wide open the day I came letting the summer breeze entered its amazing room. At the back I could see a grand piano and someone waiting to play. Though there were a lot of people chattering around me, I was lost in my own thoughts of the elegant interior of the café.Read More »
Last year in December my dad and I did a quick trip to Singapore. My sister was moving to a new place and she was moving the day after I did my bi-monthly infusion in Malaysia. So we thought we’d drop by to help her out.
(I didn’t exactly help her out in the end as I was down with a really bad migraine. Woopsy. I gave her my moral support though :D)
We had a day spare and we decided to spend it at library@orchard. I already went once with my mum but it was too short of a trip. This time I wanted to spend more time and read more books. My dad was excited too as he had never been here before.
It started to shower when we got there, so we were happy to be inside this awesome library. This is a public library and it is located inside Orchard Gateway. Apparently it is a boutique library meant to attract young adults.Read More »
This year I completed my Goodreads Challenge of 70 books (I even read a bit more than planned)! In November I thought I wouldn’t make it but eventually I did. I actually had less time to read this year since I had to do lots of work for Astanya but when things get super hectic, reading is what keeps me calm.
So, here are some of my favourite books of 2017:
The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas
This book actually broke my heart, but it is one of the best books I read this year. The book talks about a girl named Starr who witnessed her best friend called Khalil got shot by a police officer. His murder brought a lot of anger and confusion to Starr and also to their neighbourhood.Read More »
Penemuan yang bikin seneng sendiri pada minggu ini adalah: Google PhotoScan.
Gak sengaja banget nemu aplikasi ini karena sedang download yang lain, terus saya iseng download juga.
Ternyata aplikasi ini memudahkan kita untuk scan foto-foto analog dengan mudah. Di rumah, saya punya banyak banget foto analog dan memang pingin banget saya simpan secara digital tapi bayangin harus satu-satu dimasukin ke scanner dan nungguin satu per satu discan aja saja udah lelah. Read More »
