I'm Lovin' This Dress!

I found this pretty dress on WeHeartIt. Gorgeous, isn't it?

Kate Middleton's wedding dress is the worldwide major spotlight yesterday:

But I still prefer Ivanka Trump's wedding dress:

Looks like laced wedding dresses are going to be in style once more!

Summer Cleaning

Today I want to clean my room.

The thought just emerged in my brain, and I proceeded to get the vacuum cleaner out from the store room and mini-ladder from my dad's study room. First, I wiped the fan and vacuumed every corner of my mini-heaven. Next, I cleaned my parents' room and also another guestroom. It seemed that my cells were very active this morning.

I strangely felt a weird sense of elation whenever the vacuum sucked all the dust particles into its stomach. As my sweat continued to fall, my satisfaction in my own hard-work grew. Never thought it'd be so emotionally fulfilling to do household chores. :)

Sickness and Death?

Today, I smell blood in my nasal cavity. I have been suffering from sinustis for quite a long time, and every time I blow my nose, I know something bad is going to happen. I have an excessive production of mucus in my nasal cavity which blocks my air passageway everyday. Sometimes they become half-solid half-liquid and coagulates in my nose. Imagine having to breathe through your mouth the whole time.

I've a perception that it is caused by micro-parasites or whatever the bug/virus is called. When it spreads all over my head, then I'll be dead. I don't think I will live long. Really.

Learning To Drive #2
This morning I went to the driving academy again to listen to a talk which is 3 hours long. I have already passed my undang test with a score of 46/50. After that, my mom came to fetch me home. Halfway, she stopped the car and asked me to get in and drive. (Sorry? Are you kidding me? No. unfortunately.) Believe me, it was so freaking frightening. My body coordination sucked, and the car almost flew away when I stepped on the pedal ever so lightly. But luckily I didn't crash into any cars on the road.

3 hours later, I went back to the academy to get my fingerprint saved. In our house yard, my mom asked me to drive again. It's so freaking frightening, again. I nearly bumped into a tree and my granddad's car. Somehow I started to worry about learning how to drive at all. I had to remind myself that my mom paid an exorbitant amount of learning fees, RM 780 in total. Gosh, I can't stop now. I have to try my best! May God bless me and help me improve my pathetic driving skills.

Review : Twistmo Vinyl Decor Art

Recently, I won a gift certificate to shop @ Twistmo on Etsy, a shop which offers a wide selection of Designer Vinyl Decor Art, Wall Words & Graphics Decals. Thanks to Lori Lee from Twistmo, I got to choose two pieces of Vinyl Decor Art to adorn my previously empty, plain wall. Lori is also the owner of Custom Pet Art & Portraits.

Vinyl Wall Art - 3 Different Circular Doily Designs

For first-time users, if you are not confident in starting off with the original one, you can try out the samples included by Lori with your purchase. Once you've gotten the feel of it, you can try applying the larger / original wall art.

I managed to apply this on the wall in my living room after some help from my sister. Being a first-time user, I was quite ignorant about how to put it onto the wall. Luckily, Lori included an instruction paper in the package which enables me to put it up in a short time. My sisters and I are very happy and satisfied with the results!

Learning To Drive #1
Last Saturday, my mom signed me up for a driving course. I had to attend a 5-hour talk on Sunday about things that a driver had to pay attention to, getting to know accidents statistics, the required conditions for driving, how to read the signboards blah blah blah... All of which can be summarized in the small undang book as shown in the picture. At first I thought I was going to take the exam straightaway. So I kind of read the whole book in the previous night. It has 500 questions, for your information.

But it turned out that the one I was attending was actually a course. The course was so boring. The first lecturer was OK, but the second one was repeating the same things over and over again. He was like, "We have to be careful when we are driving. You know, accidents can happen if we don't be careful. If you drive recklessly, your chances of getting involved in an accident will increase. So, remember, you must be patient and drive carefully. Do you get what I'm saying? I'll repeat my words once again."

No, I'm not being a whiner, but imagine that, I was sitting in a hot (the air-cons are not working), badly-ventilated room for 5 hours with a class full of strangers (except for the only friend I personally know). Imagine my mom paying RM 150 for this. :o
