A very personal blog

Today to the tune of The Sunday Currently

I used to write a series called The Sunday Currently almost a decade ago and realized why don’t I do it every Monday or whenever I’m in the office doing nothing? Yeah so that’s what I’m hoping to do from now on… cos you know, I’ve been looking for a proper format for my regular brain dumps, and the items from The Sunday Currently are great for weekly blogging prompts.

Today is a Friday but I’m in the office so let’s do this.


Still A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. I’m not sure if I’ll ever get to finish this book. It’s so slow and dragging, and while I’ve cried a lot in my 56% of progress, I still couldn’t find time to finish it. Definitely not a page turner. I tried starting other books but I get stuck because I couldn’t bear not finishing a current read before starting a new one. Argh. A Little Life killed my reading mojo.


Just finished watching Avatar: The Last Airbender by Netflix. Yeah, the live action one. So now my husband and I are back to bingeing Impractical Jokers. I think we’re on Season 5.

Thoughts on Avatar?

Effects and cinematography is good. Music is great as well. Casting is 50/50. Acting is 50/50. Too many newbies playing their biggest roles for the first time. Overall I’d give it a 7/10 just because I keep getting distracted by the casting. Especially Mai, Ty Lee, and Azula. What is up with their faces? Seriously. Couldn’t get a better looking artist?

And Yue? It’s difficult to take the moon seriously when it looks like Gaga. But Mai? My was she hard to look at. Such strong (negative) impact for what little exposure they had.

I mean I know they’re beautiful naturally but they’re a cosplay mismatch. Sorry not sorry.

And finally, what’s the point in making Oma and Shu gay? It doesn’t add anything to the story. Netflix likes to pander I know but this is just lazy. If they wanted representation, Kyoshi is gay, if it’s worth mentioning in the series.


My current focus music is ’10s Metal on Youtube Music

Normally I listen to Rainy Jazz or Cafe Music but when I’m really busy I find myself focusing better to metal music.


About how to really be disciplined in losing weight. I can never control myself when it comes to food. I always always overeat, then regret later. It’s always inspiring seeing people heavier that I am lose weight in only a few months just by following LCIF (Low Carb, Intermittend Fasting) and OMAD (One Meal a Day). Things I’ve already done before, not simultaenously though. But for the life of me I cannot seem to conquer them right now. It’s too mental for me. And my mind is weak.

I used to be able to fast 16:8. It’s easy as long as you get a lot of sleep.

I’ve tried OMAD before and it’s easy if you’re always busy because then you don’t have time to eat. OMAD right now is a mental challenge for me. I have to constantly remind myself that I won’t die if I don’t eat in a day.

You know what, I want to occupy myself too much that eating becomes a chore. But I enjoy food so much so I don’t know how to deal haha.


Nothing striking in this part of the office.


We’d get to the compensation discussion soon. It’s the only thing that excites me right now lol.


My RTO “uniform” which is a blue floral blouse that’s getting tighter already, denim leggings, sneakers, and my husband’s jacket because I don’t fit in my jackets anymore huhu.


Mary Grace’s salmon dish. I forgot what it’s called. It has a dill cream cheese sauce, couscous and side salad. Love it.



To get my knees fixed sooner. I am progressing. I know I am. My range of motion has improved. I can walk down the stairs better now. And I can play badminton for 2 hours straight when weeks ago I need to rest in between.

But its still not enough. I still couldn’t Indian sit. I still couldn’t Asian squat. I still couldn’t frog kick. I still couldn’t hug my legs. I’m still very limited and it sucks.

Part of my wants to go through another surgery to remove the scar tissues if that’s the only thing holding me back right now.


Excited about this weekend!
