The cars are all on fire.

Over Spring Break, Zety and I went to Bangkok! Zety is getting married in May and so we thought it would be a fun trip before she gets hitched. It was also her first time out of the country! So glad I got to experience that with her. 

On the airplane. 

Landing in Bangkok! 

First thing we did after checking in was to get food. 
We found a store that sold tomyum. It was, sadly, the only bowl we had the entire trip though. 

We wasted no time in getting our shopping game on. After food, we headed out to explore the big bad city at night. 

The next day, we headed to the ever so famous Chatuchak Weekend Market. 
Zety getting souvenirs. 

They had amazing coconut ice-cream! With the heat beating down on us, the ice-cream was our little dose of heaven. 

Our new kicks! 

Having mango sticky rice for dinner before heading home. 

Goodbye Chatuchak! We managed to get quite a haul that day. I only wish we had more time, energy and money. ;) 

The sunset on the way back to the hotel. 

On our third and last day, we decided to just explore the city a little bit. 
A bush/tree/plant overwhelming a little shop. Nature vs. civilization for sure. 

A little naked dude walking around just enjoying his music. ;)

Mall displays that are very clever. Those are all purses, by the way! 

A big altar, outside a mall. 

We see this person's face everywhere. I still don't know who that is, haha. 

Coconut break from all the walking. 

We got a little lost on our last day. We really were just wondering the streets. A huge part of me enjoyed getting lost. It gave us the freedom to explore unknown streets. 

And when it was time to go, all we had to do was flag down a tuktuk to take us back to the hotel! 

It was a pretty good trip. 

Leaving my footprints in the world, one country at a time!

And you never left me no messages.

It's been quite a while, I know. There has been lots of nothing going on. My life isn't all that fascinating at the moment, really. I will be going to Thailand and Italy this year though, so it's bound to get exciting pretty soon. :)

I went back to KL for Chinese New Year, of course. 
I was all geared up for a 10 (okay, I'd have settled for 8 too) course Chinese reunion dinner but we ended up going for Western food instead. That's alright though, I got to have pork ribs. ;)

My cousin, Ivan. 

With Ivan and my grandma. 


My twin cousins, Ivan an Iain with my grandparents. 

Ivan and Iain on the first day of Chinese New Year. 

With my grandparents. 


I ended up buying my grandparents a Chinese dinner before I left (mostly because I wanted to have Chinese food). 

And then it was back to Johor! 
Drogo being Drogo. 

A picture from quite possibly the most perfect weekend I've ever had in all my 25 years of life. 

With Sara, the newest girl in my class. People have commented that we look alike. What do you think? 

I opened the back door of my house for the first time a couple of weeks ago, just in time to catch this breathtaking sunset. 

Chinese New Year was not a good time for my poor boy. He's now terrified of firecrackers and fireworks. This particular time, he stayed in this exact same position for a good 20 minutes before he came out. :(

With my little Russian/Italian girl. 

Never failing to put a smile on my face, at all times. 

Sleepy Sunday. We had two naps that day, it was fantastic. 

Love this shot. I caught both the sun and the moon in one picture. :)

Till next time! :)

Tired of livin' like a blind man.

Besides work, life has been pretty uninteresting. Then again, those who have been reading know that I'm in Johor, Malaysia- which is pretty much a dead town with nothing much going on for a single girl in her twenties. 

So pictures are mostly from work, with the ones who keep my life interesting! 

I mean, seriously, spending my days with these girls- how could I ever have a dull day? 

And my nights with this one. 

Story Book Day! It's when we come dressed up as our favourite storybook character. It's a fun alternative to Halloween! 
She dressed up as the Singing Mermaid, complete with leaves in her hair. Of course she won best dressed! 
I was the Paper Bag Princess, if you don't know the story and you have a daughter, please go find out who she is! Definitely my favourite princess. 
Zety and I. She was dressed as The Very Hungry Caterpillar. :)

Back to my first point, how could you have a dull day with these kids? 

We celebrated our 100th day of school by having a Water Party! 
They had so much fun. 

Valentine's Day celebration for us was on Friday, the 13th of February 2015. To celebrate, we made Valentine's for parents, teachers and some staff of the school (i.e. the bus driver, the receptionist, etc.)
Painting their Valentines. 

They also had a sudden obsession with being koalas on Miss May. 

These guys are heavier than they look. 

Look at these girls, having an intense conversation on politics, the economy, etc. 

It is also Drogo's 1st birthday! 
Yes, on Valentine's Day. ;)
Look at that face, he got so many treats today and a new toy! Lucky boy! 
So much love for this furball.

I turn the music up.

Here's a break down of how 2015 has been so far! 

Drogo is still as cute as ever. He turns one in a few weeks! 

I got a part-time gig working on Asia's Got Talent. Nothing fancy, I was only booking audience members- mostly office work. But it was nice to be back to the busy bustle of the film industry, even if it was only for a little while.

Filming was at Pinewood Iskandar Studios again, same as where Marco Polo was filmed. I sat at a new spot though, and this was my view every morning for a week! 

I managed to get myself a t-shirt, even though they didn't want to give me one. :)

And finally, after the excruciatingly long Christmas break- the first day of school finally came around!

Our superintendent threw a "Welcome Back/Welcome New Faculty" dinner on the first day of school. Here I am with Heide, my very Spanish co-worker! 

Walks with Drogo allows me to witness beautiful sunrises like these. 

Say hello to Lucy..

..and Marta! 

This little girl loves Drogo. She waits by the gate every afternoon so she can get Drogo kisses when he passes by! :)

I realised I've worn this for a good year now. And I'm going to keep wearing it until I can't anymore. It reminds me of the year I had, realising my dreams and making changes to my life to achieve them. If I can live the rest of my life as Miss May, my life will be one that is filled with much happiness. 

With the sweetest and funniest little girl I know, Lily. 

Spot me!
