Motivation, Say It People

“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar

Oh my god. Have you ever felt so damn lazy to do work? Sometimes the answer is to just do it!

Working on my next project, putting piece by piece together. That reminds me of a puzzle. I love puzzles, but I always abandon them if they take too long. Gulp. One piece at a time…..

Does music help? Or maybe food? Or a “short” break?

Where do you get motivation? I just wished that my motivation switch is turned on, like a light--  constant – until you switch it off.

But that never happens doesn’t it?

Fave Product #1: L’occitane Shampoo


I love the L’Occitane shampoo range because a) they smell heavenly b) they personally remind me of my Bali trip c) they make my hair so soft and smooth d) they use the safest ingredients & contain essential oils.

There were lots of types of shampoo with different essential oil blends, depending on your need. Mine is especially for sensitive and irritated scalp. The main essential oils are chamomile, mandarin, basil, and lemongrass.

I wasn’t too crazy about this brand a while ago. But one time, my mom sneaked in a sample set of their shampoo into my cosmetics bag and I took them to Bali with me. I opened the bottle, smelled it and immediately fell in love with it. At that moment all I can think of is “I gotta get this.” Oh, worthy to note that the hubs love the smell too Smile


Just to indulge ourselves more, we also bought their diffuser which made our home smell like the forest in winter.

So anyway, I’ve used the shampoo and conditioner for two months now and I LOVE it. Worth paying RM150 for them. At least your hair doesn’t smell like chemicals, and they get unbelievably soft.

Plus, Loccitane stuff are all made in France. If this is the closest I get to France, so be it.

100 Days & 99 Nights


The upside of knowing someone for 7 years before marrying them is that essentially, you know the type of person that they are. However, it doesn’t prepare you for when you actually move in with them.

First it was getting used to the quirks of each other, then it’s the house chores, then the financial part, then the “which family to visit part” etc etc. I was even hard pressed to answer the question, “so how’s married life?”. Truth is it’s not as easy as saying either “it sucks” or “its so awesome I’m ganna die”, but more of “I’m adjusting and having fun with it”.

Those things changes you and honestly, I don’t feel that I’m the same person I was 3 months ago, but in a good way.

Anyways today is exactly 100 days since I got hitched to my husband. He’s still requesting for me to “look married” ok lol. Don’t ask. I don’t know if I’ve finished the marriage “orientation” period, but I think probably not. He isn’t as well because just last night he was surprised when I burst out laughing like a MAD MAD woman watching a guy tumbling down the hill in Princess Bride. (Weird movie btw)

Chores are a pain, but normal part of everyday life; finance is guarded fiercely; arguments are… inevitable. But weekends are fun; waiting for husband to come home from work is fun; cooking together is fun; freedom is fun; couch potatoing is fun, after a fight is fun. lol

Thing is, marriage isn’t shallow. It’s a whole different universe and in comparison, the marriage ceremony is just like a hallway of a building. No. scratch that. It’s the door. To wonderland.

To exactly 100 days and beyond!


p/s: I mentioned 100 days to my husband as he puts on his shoe to leave for work. He made a face, and goes, “okay. Don’t forget to get back that money deposit from the condo management today.” I was like, “oh yeah okay!” Welcome to adulthood.
