Ola Monday! πŸ™‚

Unfortunately, my laptop needed to be at Asus service center back again after just 3 weeks? HUHU. I don’t know if its battery or motherboard this time?? But it shuts off most of the time if not connected to its adaptor. I have to let go of it for now and hoping that after this, it will be as brand new as ever. Thanks papa for accompanying me in Gilmore!! And another simple joys was I am free from Uber’s P100 credit and I didn’t payyyyy πŸ˜‚

In the afternoon, I finished my day 5 of manual driving lessons with Sir Greg! It’s my last day and I’m a bit dismayed because my instructor today was far better than Sir J*j*! I gave him a tip from being kind and strict to me. He talk and teach while I drive, a very good method for me to feel at ease and not to panic!! Thanks, Sir Greg! Starting today, I need to wait for a week to claim my certificate from Dynamic Driving school.

At around 6pm, Darwi, Janine and I went to Maginhawa! Yeyyy! Foodtrip and catch-up date after 22 months of not seeing each other! I’m thankful for our low-key friendship that never changed. We ate at Caution Hot: Spicy noodle house where I just ordered their classic beef egg noodles without thrill of chili!!! (Awesome and weirdest self huhu I can’t tolerate eating spicy foods huuuuhuuuu). After there, we chill at frosted desserts. We’re just so crazy together, full of laughter and quirks. Haaay, perfect simple breather for the week. Hehe, lastly, before I went to bed, my creative impulse kicked in and I tried to make a short vlog from our Maginhawa date so here’s the link:

Short Vlog: 2nd Maginhawa date after 22 mos!

~ I’m a vlogger wannabe (using my cellphone hihi coz why nut chocnut just make the most of what you have) so here’s my simple attempt. Hope you will like it! 😊

Always be grateful! 🌷

Grateful morning! πŸ™‚

Slept for 9 hours. Done with my new morning routine. Ate brunch with papa (thank you hihi!). And at the moment, I make time for 20 minutes to soak my left foot in a basin with warm water and iodized salt while listening to Vibrant Happy Women Ep.98. I hope that today my ingrown toenail will heal better compare to yesterday and I will improve my driving skill later (Battle: me vs my fear). *aja*

Today’s simple joys:

  • Optimistic mindset
  • Drove on the road for 1 hour and 20 mins. (class)

Always be grateful 🌷

Day 2 of February! Hi! πŸ™‚

I have followed my morning routine and it felt just good. But to be honest, I want to sob all day because of my ingrown toenail on my left (case level: MODERATE) huhu it’s my first time to experience this, not because of the pedicurist in town but the perpetrator is myself (sobsssssssssssss in the corner..i hate myself why why why I unconsciously think to pull it while playing L4d2 huuuu), anyway I controlled my emotions and just continued with my driving class which was rescheduled for tomorrow unfortunately.

I also managed my reaction towards the staff for not scheduling me yesterdayyyyyyyy, UGH! so I calmly told my dad its postponed today. And wow to my surprise, my dad allowed me to drive our car instead (irl: anxiety level 10/10!!!). So I drove it and there’s only one episode that the engine went off. Goshhhhh! It’s not that hard to learn manual driving but I can’t focus much that I felt really anxious all the time. Oh well, tomorrow is another day to learn and expose myself. I’m not letting my fear creeps in. Ajaaaaa!!!

Today’s simple joys:

  • Handled my emotions accordingly.
  • Choosing to treat my ingrown at home than punishing myself.
  • Tries to be productive even with discomfort due to my toenail.
  • Papa taught me to drive for the nth time.
  • Comfort foods (apple juice, Barquillos with powdered milk, banana)

Always be grateful 🌷

Today, I felt at peace. I listened to yesterday’s talk of Bro. Monching. I can’t help not to think of my dad and brother while they listened from his talk. It’s about how he hated the act of stealing, people with “pa-victim” aura, past experiences and etc. True enough, people really do struggle with different problems everyday. It’s just how we conceal and handle it all. Because part of being alive is having problems, If one wishes not to have a problem in this life, it’s just like s/he wishes to be dead. Many reflections I did again from Bro. Monching’s talk. Thank you Po. πŸ™‚

This morning, my family helped each other. From preparing breakfast to Min-min’s (our cute dog) bath hehe. I changed our beddings, then did some laundry, folded our clothes, cooked pasta, washed the dishes and many more errands. I played #Swifties playlist on Spotify to give me a good mood all day. Yey, Swifties!

My brother and dad were also helping each other while cleaning my brother’s car. While, my mother prepared our breakfast and lunch, she even went at the marketplace. I knew it’s just a plain Monday with household chores, but I just felt a peaceful vibe at home.

I also showed some of the shirts that I bought for my mom when I was in Saudi before, I’m glad that she liked them. However, she said that next time, just save money instead of buying her these, so I replied to her that she deserves to be treated nicely from us because it’s only once a year that we see each other and bond together. Haaay, naku mom!!! we love you and you deserved to be treated well too ❀

I’m gonna update myΒ  journal tonight because its been days since I didn’t made my entries there and I’m also gonna put my almost month-end realizations.

Thanks to my brother who cooked Carbonara tonight and also for giving me BTS’ print bag as a gift! πŸ™‚

Goodnight, universe! Happy Trick or treat, everyone!

 

Always be grateful 🌷
