 i received a disposable camera from the lovely Louise!
 'Sinterklaas' wrapping paper. :) i love it!
Nutella ice-cream & Christmas candy canes.
the KL skyline. (what little of it anyway)

my wonderful friend, Jada, has tagged me on this blogger game! :) ah, this is so nice to do. i haven't slept and it is 6 a.m. and i feel fresh as ever and it's about to be light soon. i feel like every minute i spend asleep is a minute wasted. (probably will crash soon but not now!)

1. You must post these rules.2. Each per­son must post 11 things about them­selves on their blog.
3. Answer the ques­tions the tag­ger set for you in their post, and cre­ate 11 new ques­tions for the people you tag to answer.
4. You have to choose 11 peo­ple to tag and link them on the post.
5. Go to their page and tell them you have linked him or her.6. No tag backs.7. No stuff in the tag­ging sec­tion about ‘you are tagged if you are read­ing this.’ You legit­i­mately have to tag 11 people.

11 things about me.
  1. i snort while laughing especially when i see something adorable or when i'm excited. (read: dorky habits)
  2. i love using red lipstick! it's slowly becoming my signature look. :)
  3. like Jada, i love snail mailing too! i have received gifts and notes and letters and postcards and all the loveliness from friends and family all over the world and i feel so happy everytime i receive something. it amazes me still how something that was from another continent, country and held in their hands is now in mine.
  4. my favourite words are wanderlust, lovely and fluttering.
  5. i have never touched snow before.
  6. i am a massive fan of Harry Potter and i will get a (lightning?) tattoo as a symbol of my love for it.
  7. i tend to make a bunch of different voices which either cracks people up or makes everyone feel awkward.
  8. my pet peeves are fussy people, short-tempered people and cigarette smoke.
  9. oldies i will love forever are Billy Joel, Queen and The Beatles.
  10. i'm an incredibly sentimental person, even more than i'd prefer. i keep lots of old notes, bits and pieces in notebooks, files, books, anywhere! i especially like finding dried flowers in my many journals.
  11. it's very weird (or maybe i'm just a dreamer), but i have named my sons and daughters in my mind, i'm so looking forward to meet them.
questions from Jada and Lindsey!
  1. Name a song that defines your life.
    i am a fickle mind but for now, my best answer is 'Holocene' by Bon Iver.
  2. What is something that you've always wanted to say to someone, but never got the chance to?
    "I like you very much." "I love you."
  3. Describe your dream home (or if you already have one).
    mmm! i have many in mind but i want a home that is the perfect size, with an old charm, like ivy creeping up on it's walls or a secret garden. a perfect mix of traditional and modern aesthetics. photographs, photographs everywhere of me and my loved ones and my best ones. mine and my significant other's belongings will be everywhere in our home (and it will reflect on who we are) because after all, that's what makes a house a home.
  4. If you could have dinner with anyone in the world, who would it be?
    Annie Lennox or Nelson Mandela or Nirrimi.
  5. What position do you sleep in?
    on my right side with my legs slightly snuggled up.
  6. Favorite breed of dog?
    i think a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
  7. What is your favorite quote?
    1. “Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.” 
    — Kurt Vonnegut
  8. Coffee or tea?
    tea! it calms me right down is so yum. i think i drank the best tea today, Peony Jade. :)
  9. What is your favorite book?
    ooh this is a tough one.. either the Harry Potter series or 'The Truth About Forever' by Sarah Dessen. [EDIT] also! i can't believe i forgot this, 'The Shadow of the Wind' by 
    Carlos Ruiz Zafón.
  10. Do you believe in love at first sight?
    i suppose it exists. but i'm not the best person to ask this, my faith in love is possibly at its weakest now.
  11. What is one thing you've always wanted to do, but are too afraid to?
    leaving everything behind and just travel and live completely. taking risks and just be.
[edit] my questions!
  1. have you tried macarons? and if you have, what is your favourite flavour?
  2. what movie(s) do you watch for a pick-me-up?
  3. are you more of a cat or dog person?
  4. what is one of the most played songs on your iTunes/iPod/phone etc.?
  5. have you had your heart broken before?
  6. what is your favourite colour?
  7. what motivates you more, love or fear? (taken from this video)
  8. what is the most significant thing that you've accomplished this year?
  9. do you believe that there are both light and dark in each person?
  10. what is your favourite wild animal?
  11. what do you like best about yourself?
