Love the afternoon light in my room these days. We’re having dinner really early these days around 6:30 or 7 pm which allows us a long evening to get other things done, which feels nice. The weather’s appropriately calmed down at nights so N and I went for a walk around our neighborhood after dinner this week. It was slow and peaceful. I feel grateful. 
My dad often used to find forgotten cash in his jacket pockets months after putting it in. It always used to be pretty exciting to hear him exclaim that he found something – not saying much about my life to say that I found that exciting but finding forgotten stuff just always felt special. A couple of days ago N wore one of his formal jackets to work after a long time and after coming back home was putting it back in the closet when he exclaimed, ‘What’s this?’. Turns out it was this MAC lipstick (Lady Danger) that I’d been looking for since AGES and thought I’d lost it. I wore it on my brother’s wedding way back in December and had put it in N’s pocket for touchups in case of a food disaster or something. Finding it after 10 months felt like a very sweet gift from the universe and also just a nice reminder that you’ll sometimes find something you want when you’re least expecting it. 
Putting broken rings back together. Discovered these in my bedroom purge I did recently.
Bought this on the way back from my neighborhood walk. Have no idea what to expect but excited to try it in a drink I’ve been planning to make since a few days. If you use this, tell me how you do it, I’d love to try something interesting out.
A very exciting delivery this week that I can’t talk about because it hasn’t launched yet but acting like a  wannabe and posting here anyway. The heart wants what it wants, friends.
If anything brightened your week or there’s something you’re looking forward to for the weekend, I’d love to know. Have a great weekend, you guys.

  5. This week was quite depressing till now in 2016, i had a great fight with my husband that lasts for 3 days that never happened before. let me tell you both of us doing PhD i am done with my research work now days i am waiting for my defense date. My husband is coping with both business and PhD however so this week end with the worst news as our malaysian bank have blocked my husband account due to heavy transactions and now we are struggling to open a new business account which is not an easy task when you are not local

      You know when such bad days happen where everything seems to be falling out of place, I just try to remind myself that even though the small things are out balance, the big things are fine, like life, family, relationship. Hope you've made up with the husband :* A PhD on its own is so challenging, IA you guys should be done soon and have it a little easier.
