30 Day Challenge : Day 2

Day 2: where you'd like to be in 10 years



A decade ago i was 13, first year of high school, got into music and everything else was history. Of course, a lot had changed since then. I wanted to be a lawyer at 17 but got into street art and studied graphic design instead. After graduation i worked in a social media company doing internet based stuff and now i'm jobless (by choice) so... i'm not where i thought i'd be 10 years ago.

At 33 i hope to be successful, healthy and a mom. I can't share with you my dreams because it'll be embarrassing if i don't make it happen. I do know i should at least be able to say that by that age, i would have traveled to most part of the world and did all the things that i've wanted to do. Mostly those dangerous adventure risky stuff that young people like me can still afford to take.

Some of the places i'd like to vist by 33


Preachers Rock, Preikestolen, Norway


Mount Roraima - Venezuela.


New york city

I'd like to be able to say that i've spent my youthful years doing something interesting. I do not wish to sit in a 9-5 job working for some company slaving my self like a myanmar waitress for the next 10 years. I'd rather hustle, be poor but still have the time to do the things i wanna do. Time is after all more valuable than money. Money you can find but time, once passed will never be conquered.

Hopefully i'll be wiser and more chilled. More experienced and 5 kg heavier. lol. Life by then would be simple and meaningful. They say as you grow older, you'll see the bigger picture. Maybe i won't fret on petty things anymore.

Everything happens for a reason but it's not fair to say i wanna go with the flow if I don't have a goal. Because then, the flow wouldn't have any direction. The flow might just flow in circles.

I'm taking things easy now. I have a dream and it's ok to dream big but i know i have to do something about it and i believe if i want something so badly and put enough dedication and focus to it, it will come true.

I'm not so keen on spending the rest of my life away from home. Malaysia is my country and i'm proud of it. The people here might have a different mindset and our culture is variant but it's where my blood bleeds. I love my country and eventhough it's not first world and it's not perfect, we shouldn't take things for granted. However, i do want to experience working abroad for a couple of years. Just to get a different insight on other cultures and what not.

10 years shall pass with a blink of an eye. Let's make it worth it and touch up those sprouting baby grey hair.

30 Day Challenge : Day 1

Day 1: Your current relationship


I try not to be a P.D.A (public display of affection) kind of person when it comes to relationship. Not online at least. Which explains why i haven't been writing much about my relationship.

I guess a lot of us would find it nauseating reading updates on couples declaring their everlasting love towards each other online and believe it or not, despite their PDAs, some of these couples do cheat behind each other's back and when they fight it's like a mexican cinerama telenovela NTV7 for the whole friend list to see (eventhough it's on the internet, saying the whole world instead of friends list seems a bit pompous. because i don't think they'll have the whole world adding them on facebook and i don't think even mark zuckerberg has the whole world adding him.)

I might be wrong but I believe guys that frequently tell their "other half" how much they love them via the "internet" are mostly attention seekers, sweet talkers and they spend 90% of their time "chatting" *flirting* with other girls behind their gf's back. *like.. herro gurls~~ look at me being this charming sweet boyfie.. posting to gf's wall how much i love her daily for the whole friend list to see.. you gurls want a piece of this? wink wink ;)*

*I'd rather vomit blood than talk to this kind of douchebags*

Decent guys can't be bothered with "PDAs" because they know conversations like this are to be remain private. But i think mostly to avoid mockery from his fellow peers. I guess they realized Tak macho ah kalau abe muh writes babee kangawoo nak titon ni! which means "baby kangaroo i'm going to bed" on your facebook wall daily.

However, I'm not saying you're meant to be kept in the closet either. He should at least have his FB status as "In a relationship with you" and have some of your photos together. What i'm saying is that if he's really in love with you, there's no need for constant PDA. Isn't it better to privately facetime or whatsapp or that traditional sms or public phone or if you have unifi free house phone to house phone calls that makes it possible for you to talk all day and express yourself better.

Just because he confesses his love on your wall daily and set relationship status doesn't mean you can guarantee he'll be loyal. I bet we've heard of that story of somebody's boyfriend cheating when we thought they look so "in love" in the public eye.

But don't trip too fast. You should be more offended if he flirts with other girls but never post anything on your wall. After all, good things are meant to be shared... like this photo

*only to be sent to you that is.*


yeah yeah.. I love you too.

Back to the status of my relationship. Hmmm.. i can't think of anyone else i'd rather be with than the person i'm with right now and I do sometimes write terlalew rindew pada yiew on my bf's wall.

30 day challenge


I was browsing my web folder (photos saved from the internet) while looking for tumblr worthy photos when i came across this interesting 30 day challenge. Now I shall make it a point to complete each challenge daily for the next 1 month. Do expect some answers to be abhorrently honest and liberal.. but we shall see.

BIG DEAL


There's nothing more romantic and lovely than couples writing songs together. Big deal are Kacey Underwood (guitar, vocals) and Alice Costelloe (vocals, guitar). Their soothing vocals and raw sound makes them amazinggg! I feel so in love.

Triptunes #1




In this series, i'll be listing some unconventional trip tunes. I do not wish to elaborate much but if you ever try gummies do give the tunes below a listen.







Musically i felt this album to be different from their previous ones but i totally get why the cover art looks so trippy. Mew's introducing palace players was orgasmic and i meant it literally..








I was sitting on the toilet seat while M83's Wait was playing when suddenly I saw the tiles underneath me glowing with intense crop patterns. i thought i was imagining it as i wasn't aware of any marks on the tiles before but when i took a closer look, i realized that there were indeed fine patterns! Somewhat in the shape of tiny conjoined snowflakes... and i saw it all simultaneously beaming so clearly.. like... i can't really explain... but it was epic. :')

Productivity : i'm back!


Before anything else, do bookmark this page and secondly WOW It's been a while since my last update... 10 months to be exact.

Newsflash: I resigned from my creative designing job last Friday and now it feels awkward being out of job. Not complaining but Yes! i'm officially freelancing and taking up odd jobs to temporarily support myself and with that being said, do holla if you wanna work on something.

Despite having all the time in the world to sort my sort of tangled life and current situation / jiwa gelora almost quarter life crisis, i'm starting to miss the routine of going to work in the morning. lol. WHAT?? lol. UNBELIEVABLE I KNOW! see updating blog at 7.01am. konon effisyen la.. bangun pagi padahal punklet was pawing my face sampai terbangun 30 minutes ago cause i didnt clean her litter box the night before so she can't poo and it's uncomfortable and... lol. *sorry lari topic* However, it's good to finally have time for myself which i hope will be used as productively as possible. I'll try to update my blog as often and perhaps this could be my official journal for bigger things to come. Cheers!xx

owh ya, follow me on twitter @raeesa_sya and tumblr raeesa

P/s: ehem, kak esah dah besar dah. Trying to hustle in the real world.
