That Long Distance Relationship

Long Distance Relationship aren't always ideal. In fact, they’re really tough.

You spend countless of hours just talking through a phone or through a screen. You can’t see the person when you want to or when you most need them..

You can’t hug, you can’t hold hands, you can’t kiss. You lose the intimacy in a physical sense. But then, Your relationship becomes based on each other and nothing else.

You learn to communicate,because a long-distance relationship without communication is nothing.

You learn to trust, because you can’t always see or know everything the person is doing.

You learn to sacrifice, because someone’s always going to lose a bit of sleep from the time difference.

And lastly, you learn to appreciate.

So often, we take for granted the people and relationships in our lives because we think they’ll always be there.

But when you only have a limited amount of time with a person,

you learn to appreciate and cherish every single moment you have with them.

When you finally see that person after weeks or months of seeing them only through a computer screen,

It is one of the greatest feelings in the world.

When you’ve waited for something so long and you finally have it,

you cherish it. The key to a long-distance relationship is faith.

If both of you are not willing to give up,

If both of you are willing to stand up and still try after every time one of you or both of you fall.

“Distance isn't for the fearful, it’s for the bold ".

It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for the little time with the one they love.

It’s for knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough.

HAPPY 2ND ANNIVERSARY, SAYANG. :')

Conversation: Mental Health and Self-care

We had a conversation in the car. 
About mental health in workplace. 
It was a very sensitive topic to me since I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Having bipolar means the depression is worst. The period is longer. Then BAMMMMMM mood swings, anger, eating disorder, grieve, anxiety came along. 

But we were talking about it because I was a high-functioning person with bipolar disorder. I didn't get medication for more than two months now, and believe me, everyday that pass by is just me throwing my body to the wall and breaks like a piece of ceramic and pick myself back again with bare hands. It's hard. 
I didn't get medication, I didn't get counselling, I didn't get psychotheraphy. I was struggling to do self-care, I was struggling to sleep or wake up. It was a battle everyday, and to think about it, I just started a career. I was marching in a battleground every morning. 
Mental health in workplace has been recently a raised topic in Malaysia, since there is s…

My Daily Skincare Routine

Invest in your skin. It is going to represent you for a very long time – Linden Tyler.
I believe in good skin care, makes you least need you make up and you can even have a better, brighter canvas to put on. Having a healthy skin also shows you're healthy and well-hydrated, so yes, drinking water is important. I usually put on 2L of water inside me, forcefully. It makes me visit the toilet often, but seeing my skin glow is just another set of happiness!
I just learned to take care of my skin because when I apply make up, my dry skin looks so flaky and tired. I have to spent more time to look better. I have oily-dry combination skin, which the T-zone is oily, but my sides and cheeks are dry. And very very dry. Drinking water helps me, but I need more than that. 
So every morning, I woke up with a cup of water. Usually ice-cold water. I am not a fan of hot drinks. 
And I wash my face with Garnier Pure Active Matcha Detox Pollution & Oil Deep Clean Facial Foam. It feels so rich …

Buku Tebal Challenge by @BookendsMY

Everyone who knows me know that I am a bibliophile - and I'm targetting myself to read 60 books this year (Follow my 2017 Reading Challenge on Goodreads!)
So on July, a reading community called BookendsMY had organised Buku Tebal Challenge, where we got to read a book, over 500 pages, and post our reviews about the book in any platform. I always loved Goodreads because it allows writer to read comments about their books and interact with them, too.
Follow me on Goodreads!
So my pick for the Buku Tebal Challenge was American Gods by Neil Gaiman.


Check out what I say about Gaiman's American Gods:

Phew. It was a roller coaster ride for two days I spent on this book, ignoring everything that happened in this world just for Shadow's adventure.

I can't find anything that I hate about this book, truly a read that brings the meaning of belief and religion and emotional attachment and detachment, value of life and death to a person, and to believe that something has bigger powe…
