Café Love

I love Cafés. 

Little snacks, full-blown meals, hot coffees and indulgent milkshakes.
Old books, two-fold menus, yesterday's newspapers and Kindles.
People-watching, brunch dates, meet-ups and farewells.
Naked bulbs, hexagonal tiles, metal chairs and wooden floors.

What's not to love?

Eat. Drink. Americano, Los Angeles

Apa itu luar biasa? Bisakah kita memahaminya sepenuhnya? Ku rasa itu tidak mungkin. Engkau fikirlah sendiri.

Semakin lama ku beri diriku berfikir mengenai perkara-perkara biasa, semakin ganjil perkara itu terserlah di mindaku.


Hari ini ku membaca suatu petikan yang mudah difahami tetapi sukar dihadami. Ia berkata hubungan seks pertama yang dijalin selepas perkhawinan, yang dahulu kita anggap sebagai "standard", kini dilihat sebagai yang mustahil. Ini saya faham, kerana perkembangan masa dan budaya, tetapi ia sesuatu "hard pill to swallow". Senanglah kerja saya, jika kita semua menghadami konsep asing dan baru itu! Tetapi ia tidak sama sekali memberi saya isyarat hijau untuk mengikutinya. Faham?


Bagaimanakah minggumu terbuka?

things i want and should probably do.

find my resume. 
The file was in my HDD before it crashed, and now that it has completely gone bonkers, I can't even view the files. AH WAIT! I just remembered...did I upload my resume to LinkedIn? ... Nope it's not there. T_T


After half a year (or more, possibly) I'm finally done reading the Case for Faith (by investigative journalist Lee Strobel). It took me so long to get from cover to cover that I'm considering re-reading it, just to refresh myself on the points. This is a really, really good book for you christians and non-christians out there.

find out why some people find out about great songs from playing FIFA
like this gem. UGH! Isn't FIFA a football video game? Someone tell me why they're putting songs like this in there, please. Do they play football with this slow jam?

It has been one week since the terrifyingly hot and exhausting all-day indie music festival that was Laneway 2013. We paid a visit to the Singaporean leg of the fest, which was the first stop (the rest were in NZ and Australia). The bands on the lineup were likeable (Kings of Convenience, Real Estate, Of Monsters and Men), eccentric (Gotye, Kimbra, Polica), genre-defyingly EPIC (Alt-J, Yeasayer), entertainingly talented (Bat for Lashes), unexpectedly good (Nicolas Jaar, Tame Impala) and loud (Japandroids, Cloud Nothings, Divine Fits).

Full review coming soon! I hope :)
