I spent the whole afternoon ironing yesterday. I should have done this way much earlier, judging by the amount of clothes piling up on the chair. Among those clothes, some belonged to Pappy and do you know how long is it since Pappy last visited me? VERY LONG. And so it means the clothes have been piling up on the chair for a VERY LONG TIME.
Each time I want to start ironing it, I end after I iron a few pieces of my own clothes because it’s boring or it’s hot or it’s just plain HOT AND BORING.
But you know what? Each time I walk into the room, I get an eyesore. But each time I iron, I get a heartache.
And I thought enough is enough, I shall get rid of eyesore and heartache in one go so I spent the entire Saturday afternoon ironing and you know what? It feels great. Started off a bit draggy and then as I saw the pile starting to disappear, I felt more motivated. To spice things up, I turned on to Super Junior’s “It’s You”. As I was ironing and enjoying the beat to the song, my legs were starting to dance and my body wanted to dance. Ironing was fun.
The chair is now empty without any clothes. With that, I can actually push the chair inwards to go under the table, which then creates more space,which then felt like a part of clutter is gone, which then made me feel happier, lighter. Just awesome!
The cleaning mood kinda got into me yesterday that I went on an express vacuuming and mopping session. The water in the pail after mopping this time around is lighter than the one I had the last round. Water was black. Water was slightly grey this time which means my house is not that dirty as last time. AKU SANGAT SYOK!
Now walking on the tiles make me smile.
Today, I went out dating with a friend. Before we went out, I made both of us fruit juice. Juicing is also a new and latest passion of mine. Been juicing like 3-4 times last week. Becoming an auntie soon because now I know where to get the best supply of crisp, crunchy and juicy green apples. How do you know it’s crunchy? When you slice it into half, it lets out a “crispy” sound. It makes me smile too. I’ve also been shopping for carrots more lately. I’ll never look at carrots the same way anymore. It does wonders.
Watched “Up” today. I loved it! My friend wanted to watch “District 9” but I wasn’t in the mood to watch some ugly aliens on a beautiful Sunday and reading the reviews that it can get quite gory and violent but a good film…still didn’t help. I cannot do too much of gory scenes lah. So we settled for “Up” and I love the soundtrack that I went searching after I came home from the movies…but the song that I want is not included in the soundtrack. 🙁
It’s called “Hanabera” from George Bizet’s “Carmen”. It took me awhile to search for the title…very confusing title. But well, I found another song which is the theme song for the movie. It’s really really nice…called “Married Life”. I even got the piano sheet after much researching on YouTube. I don’t know how to say this but I think YouTube is one of those great things ever created. You can learn about mostly everything here. You can even learn how to play the piano, how to get rid of stains, how to floss your teeth with braces, how to add a gradient in Photoshop, how to dance like Super Junior…
I have a sudden impulse and urge to play the piano again because I want to play the song which I just found the piano sheet to. I was looking at the sheet just now and pressed my fingers on the table like as though I was playing. Silly I know but I don’t have a piano at home now that’s why.
Went to the pasar malam also, got myself a packet of nasi dagang, GREEN APPLES 🙂 , tomatoes. My dear friend got herself 5 apam baliks and then it was watching tv session. Just a simple girl’s day out and I like peaceful Sundays like this with a lovely friend.
