. . . continuation of thoughts . . .

assalamualaikum

where was i? about spending eh i guess? yeah. d fact dat i get lots of ideas here, yes. n also one true striking fact is that i've never ever done online purchases online. up until now. now its not d fight to purchase everything u can, its d fight to keep my eyes away from things i am able to purchase. gosh. i got an apartment of my own now, yeah, probably u've already been informed. a small studio apartment. the hot plates (tambak or cooking place) is so close to my bed. i have had (n will have) hard times trying to cook, especially frying. this one time, i was frying sardines (yum2, smelly but de-e-licious) it splattered all over d wall n a bit to my sheets. gosh, i was drowned in sardine perfume all night long. i'm still not used to electric hot plates, i'm still into d caveman thing of using fire to cook. then again, i just have to go along with it.

i think i'm gonna start saving more this year. i wana find a much bigger place than what i have now. well, i am satisfied with it but then again, my apartment is somewhat of a hotel-hostel. u can decorate it deliberately. everything is set. as usual, they'll charge the damages once we get outta there. so in this case, its d main reason why i wana find another new apartment. so that i could modify it into something that comforts me. i can have my own everything... internet/phone line, bigger room, bigger toilet... n so on. but to move into a new apartment, as usual, u'll still have to buy things. hence, i need to save more money than usual. i'm good at saving. i'm extremely better at spending (true...)

so i got things to look forward to buy. fridge, place to cook, bed, cupboard, tv, video games, dvds, food... d list goes on. i just hope its enough by next year. if not, the idea of living another 2nd year in the same apartment right now is my best bet to save money.

. . . talking with my mouth closed . . .

assalamualaikum...

been doing it ever since i started thinking. yea, been doing lots of it. this n that... a bit... a lot... u name it, i'll do my best at it. thinking. so far i'm just not good at one thing which is doing what i can think about. like d saying goes, talking is easier than doing it. well... for those who do not muster a muscle thinks that way. not me. i amy not be able to do what is supposed to do but i will at least try.

lately i've been thinking about what to buy (^^,) ahhh... thoughts that always haunts u when d end of the month comes. oh la la... my my my... theres so much to purchase yet d cash u have at hand seems like its just a few cents. gosh. living in brunei was actually heaven (it is still...) i mean u dont get stuff like designer items... adventurous food... rare stuff... u know, things u always wanted to have but u cant get it in brunei.

here in switzerland, based on what i've experience for the past few months, if its not in d shops, u can always get it online. i dunno. i mean, basically u can always buy things online wherever u are. maybe d fact that i could imagine wat i want since there r lots of 'interesting' ideas u can have here rather than in brunei...

oh, got to go now... will continue again tomorrow...

. . . pieces of love . . .

assalamualaikum

i almost slipped naked out of the toilet last Friday before work when suddenly someone rang my doorbell. Wow, someone actually came to my apartment. i was like so confused n shocked! who could it be? who in geneva is willing to come n visit me at this time of day? plus i gotta go to work, cant they wait till later? hence, slowly but surely opening d door, i was stunned...

it was d mailman.

i had a huge freakin mailbox down at the lobby n he just had to come up n ring me at my tome of pleasure in the the bathroom. party pooper... even his silly shocked smile didnt even gave me comfort from disturbing my bath.

i got like a package with cute wrappings... i recognized the cute writing as well, hence made me smile (bear in mind i was still using my towel... n u can imagine the sheer blankness the mailman had on his face). i hurried getting dressed n also had a quick spoonful of cereal. i wasnt shocked when i opened the package, rather i had known it all along what happened to it when it got mailed from Brunei...

this is what i got,



my heart was sore at that time when i saw the broken pieces. but i was determined to fix it, no matter how hard or how tiny the debris are, i know i can fix it. its just a matter of patience. patience. i have it everywhere i go up till this day, this very second. hence the strong relationship i had after 2 whole years, i'm not gonna let it go just like that.

after work, i got out n looked for glue to stick the broken pieces together. i work better during d day, n over here, day lasts til at least 830pm. so i got ample time. i was owes quite good at doing puzzles so this was a no-sweat to me. it didnt take too long, eventhough it was not as pretty as it was before, i finally put it together...





having cracks n bruises from its travel all the way to Geneva, i finally mended it together. its not a da vinci painting nor a van gogh. i dont even care. all the pretty n beautiful paintings or artifacts could not compare to what i have received from my Mama Bear (^^,) i love it. n i love her as well, like i said, i love her as much n more than an infinity.

if u could mend a broken heart... then it is not impossible to mend a broken gift.

thank you honey, my room (n my heart) feels a bit more bigger than usual now that i have something to comfort my lonely days in a cold (but getting warmer) country.

n the last but not least... HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, MAMA BEAR. i love you so much...
