7.00am. you wake up a little earlier than usual to avoid the rush hour and find yourself pleasantly surprised. the smell of fresh morning dew. sunlight on our skin. aliveness of our relaxed bodies. the luxury to even smile at people we meet along the way
the musings of minutiae.
waiting for the train to arrive behind the yellow line. travel time is not a dead time but rather a transitional space.
haiiiii everyone, it’s been a long long while! hope y’all been behaving. so much has been happening and occupying all my time and soul lately i really couldn’t find the time to sit and write up a proper blog post until now.
there are two kinds of people in this world – one that has positive and one that has negative attitude towards audio books. sure, there’s a charm in holding and reading (and sniffing) an actual physical book (older the better) but when you’re always hustling and on the move – audible might just be the answer you’re looking for.
i mean it’s no secret i’m border line obsessed with the pineapple tote i sewed up couple of months ago. it’s so thailand-appropriate, light and most importantly sturdy enough to carry tons of stuff inside. when i took on sewing as a hobby i made so many pouches and tote bags that i can now make them with my eyes closed; no but really it’s probably the easiest sewing project and if i can do it so can you!
it’s probably the nosy in me but i’m always curious to find out what people in other parts of the world get up to during their down time. is it cafe-centric as it is in most asian countries? do you spend more time getting out and about? contrary to what many outsiders perceive it to be, life in bangkok can feel rather repetitive and mundane after a while. don’t get me wrong though i absolutely love my life here but once you pass that initial stage of getting excited over a fruit cart on the street, there are only so many places you can go and things you can do. especially when the temperature reaches 40 celcius out getting out of your air-conditioned bedroom is the last thing you want to do.
