Turning Into A New Leaf

April 23, 2018

Never in a million years, it would cross my mind that I would start collection houseplant or even *like* plants in general. Something in me snapped one day and I decided to buy a plant – a pilea peperomioides. When it started growing (and it didn’t die) I was hooked! I bought more and over a short period of time, my collection grew massively. I have plants in EVERY room in the house – hanging pothos, succulents, mother in law tounges, monsteras and fittonias to name some.

Things Achieved in 2017 and 2018 New Year Resolution

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I can’t believe it’s the new year. 2017 felt like it went by in a flash. Don and I celebrated NYE at home. We had a lovely dinner together, sat in our backyard to watch the fireworks at midnight and went straight to bed after. On New Year’s Day, we spent the morning at the beach, grabbed a coffee and had a relaxing day. After that, everything went downhill… on the 2nd of January, Don was experiencing abdominal pains which lead to a trip to the Emergency Department. Turns out that it was acute appendicitis and he needed to take it out. It was 2 days at the hospital. Thankfully, the surgery went well and Don is recovering well. It was still a shock for the both of us as we didn’t see this coming!

This post is PART 2 for How To Marry Your Foreign Partner In Malaysia

Like my previous posts, I have been getting questions about what is life after marrying my foreign partner, moving away from home and what’s living in Australia like. Our one year anniversary is coming up and I just got my Partner Visa! I think a life update is needed.  I am going to be as informative as possible. Before you read on, please note that I am sharing this from *my experience* and official procedures may differ from yours.I am splitting this post into three sections because it’s easier for me to explain.

It’s summer!

It finally feels like Perth is waking from a long, deep sleep. It’s like Perth doesn’t function properly at all during winter. I guess to be fair, Perth felt like it went through one of the longest winters. We were still wearing jumpers in October! So glad, long cold winter days are over.

Dealing With Homesickness

I am not afraid to admit this, one of the reasons why I was MIA from Blushingkay was because I was homesick. I was Super Duper Intense Homesick. I miss my family. I miss my room. I miss my bed. I missed my car. I miss my cat. I miss my friends. I miss the FOOD. I miss everything about my life back in KL.

True Crime Podcasts

Listening to True Crime podcasts have been part of my daily routine. Before it was binge watching tv series and documentaries on Netflix. Now, I don’t go a day without listening to a podcast episode. It’s such a nice escape from things around me. I need to concentrate on the episodes which mean I don’t look at my phone. I do mundane things like folding my laundry, going for a walk or when I am cooking. I am a true lover of True Crimes and here are more of True Crimes podcasts I have been listening to.

Spring is finally here!

It’s been a while and I have no excuse. The past couple months have been really uninspiring and quite depressing, to say the least. It was my first proper winter here in Perth (one that I didn’t run back to KL to escape) and I didn’t enjoy it. It was cold, wet and gloomy. MEH! I thought winter was long gone when we had a few straight days of sun, then winter came back again, teasing us with the sun. Well, now that Spring is on the way and hopefully, we get more sunny days, I have a few things I want to do this spring.
