does getting old make one sentimental? :D
As the temperature starts to fall and so with my motivation to blog! LOL. I’m finding it so hard to accomplish tasks lately that involves outdoor activities, such as taking outfit photos for the blog. Which explains why I was MIA in blogosphere for more or less two weeks. If only we have a good lighting at home, then it won’t be such a big problem.
If you think that I had the best days of my life during these two weeks that I was away, well, you’re absolutely right. Haha! I did have a great time, but ONLY if my brain knew how to shut the eff up a little bit more. Thank God though, because I’m extra sugary lately that my longing for hugs and kisses and warm cuddles is stronger than my ambitious financial needs. Working as if I’m the poorest of the poor my entire life has almost made me forget these simple needs as a human being. You know that kind of need that touches the softest part of your heart. Such as expressing how much you love someone through simple gestures like a countless kiss on the cheeks, a warm tight hug, a series of sensible to silly talks on late nights while popping a bottle of champagne and toasting a glass or two as if every day is a celebration (but not to the extent of getting wasted of course). These were the precious things in life that I’ve neglected for a long time, just because of my needs to grow my bank account, as usual.
I’m getting old I know, but I’m thankful for this process because it makes me more like a human. In fact, it feels like my life has just begun. I’m happy to discover things that I’ve blinded myself with when I was a little younger. I can’t even believe how less excited I am now whenever I get new material stuff. I used to believe that happiness is expensive, that’s why I worked really hard my whole life. But now that these lovely wrinkles have started to find a new home on my not so lovely face, I’ve realised that happiness is something that no one, not even someone with a big fat belly I mean wallet can afford to buy. Because it’s priceless. Not to mention, immeasurable. Sometimes, it’s even spontaneous. For an instance, I’ve never thought that I would meet someone whom I could share my future plans with, or that I would be an official aunt as soon as two weeks ago or that my brother would finally get married one day (yes, my brother who had been a friggin pain in the arse at home) or that I would still meet a few people with a lovely soul despite limiting my social circle. I’ve actually never attached my own happiness to people other than myself. Only with $$$ or things that would make me fit into the world of millennials. But lately, the thought of having an iPhone X doesn’t make me giddy anymore. In fact, I told the wife that I can wait until next year to have a new phone. I’m more excited about our trip home and to finally see the whole family with the love of my life than any other things in the world. ❤️
“On growing old, one becomes more contented than in one’s youth, which I will not, therefore, revile, for in all my dreams I hear my youth like a wonderful song which now sounds more harmonious than it did in reality, and even sweeter” ― Hermann Hesse
About the Outfit
This loose long sleeve maxi dress I recently got from Rosegal is simple yet eye-catchy. I received good comments from my classmates when I wore it to school last Monday. I was scared to think that it would be too long for me but it was a perfect fit when it finally arrived. The sleeves were quite long but it’s perfect for the super cold weather.
