Into the woods

Warning: Post is image heavy.

This post is one of my few ‘I don’t wanna post this cause I love it too much to share with others’, ‘I’m gonna delay this post for as long as I can cause it’s mine all mine and I wanna be a little selfish about it,’ or even just ‘Nope, I’m gonna print this in big size and hang it in the house/room so I can appreciate it right cause no one can appreciate this as much as I canย ๐Ÿค˜’ category. Which is why there’s quite a bit of missing travel posts here. Hehe.

But I know I gotta share this first(!…travel posts can wait heh) cause it means a lot to me… and good things are meant to be shared.

On the 1st January, the 1st Sunday in 2017, I had a photoshoot with Ain. Which is why I thought, I should publish this post on a Sunday also.ย ๐Ÿ˜Žย Albeit 10 Sundays later.

Cause I was bored and she wanted to take pictures of me with/in my heels.

I could just send her the pictures of my heels, really, but where’s the decency in there right? Bahahaha.ย ๐Ÿ™ˆย Tak senonoh!

Since it was the new year, I figured, ‘Hey! Why not try somewhere new?’

And that ‘new’ place, is non other than a forest. They called it garden but really, it’s a forest.

I’m about to let the pictures do the talking. But before I do, just wanna let you guys know that Ain put in a lot of (great) effort to make me look decent.



If this is not a forest, I don’t know what is. *shrugs*


My favourite part of this place is this guy…


Running barefeet all.ย ๐Ÿ™Š So much respect.๐Ÿ˜ฑ


Waitttt! Don’t leave me! Train me!


Close enough I guess?ย ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™Š


Phew! That was a workout guys. Bahaha

Let’s not forget… Ain’s favourite…


My heelsย ๐Ÿ˜‚

Till next post, I guess this is how girls like me would look like if we enlist in the army.ย ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’

Oh and, can you imagine if I were to print my face(s) and put it in my room? OMG. NIGHTMARE YALL. HAHAHA.

Free Wifi anybody?

Afterย I started (*ehem*) paying my own bills #proud (I’m not a brat guys, haha), only then I know, exactly, what I use(d). Cause y’know, we pay what we use.

My phone data plan is the ooooooooooooold plan with monthly data of 12GB. If I were to renew my contract, I’d have to pay the same price and only get 3-4GB per month.

Having two phones and depending on YouTube quite a bit, I know I can’t afford to recontract my plans and really, I don’t see the need to.

One day, as I opened my bill statement, my mind broke down just like the breakdown of the bill’s statement.

They listed evvvvvvvveeerryyything from who I call, who called me, the number of texts sent out, how long I called while I was overseas and more. The best part of the statement was the excess data usage.

Total data usage: 21.xxxGB.


But then I remembered allllll those 1 hour episode variety shows that I watched during work, y’know, to keep myself awakeย lunch hour and train rides back home, all the emails and Facebook videos, yep, I totally deserve that extra charge. *hides face*

Took me few days to be cool with myself.

Seriously Aqilah, whaaat were you thinking?

Well, allow me to explain myself. (It’s kinda moot now, but just for the ease of my mind yea.)

I get people telling me that even if they don’t switch off their data, ever, they never exceed even 2GB. Quote from someone I know, “…it’s hard for data to even reach 1GB, so yeah, it’s totally cool to use it…”

Hmmmm, banyak dia punya ‘so yeaahhh, it’s totally cool to use it’ pfft, I forgot that I’m notย normal people.

Since that episode, I started signing up for this app which allows you to track your data usage shenanigans. I’m so rocking adulting business aren’t I!? #selfpraiseisnopraiseaqilah bahahahaha

Anyways, few days later, this happened on Twitter.

Puhleaseee bruuhhh, 2GB ain’t bigga deal.

But of course, they just had to make fun of me.

Can’t blame them tho. If I had a friend like me, I’d make fun of her too, bahahahaha.

Free public Wifi?ย ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ˆ

Neverย ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Oh! Oh! Oh! Before I end this post, I’d like to share a brand new information.

For this month…

Totally didn’t burst my data!

Woohooo!!!ย ๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†๐Ÿ†

Where ma bill statment be at!? I’m so ready for this month’s bill payout!


First Transaction

If you’ve been following this blog, you’d know that some time back, while I was still in UK, my wallet got stolen along with my lovely cards.

Boy! That was a lot of trouble.

The good thing was that it was taken away from me after I’ve done my groceries. (Under any circumstance, food comes firstย ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚). So, while waiting for my replacement cards, I didn’t ย need to spend/borrow a lot of cash (from Ashley). Phew!

When my cards came, since I didn’t have things to buy, it rest in peace safely in my other wallet.

But of course, I got itchy and look around for some ‘thing’ to buy, y’know, just cause.

The very first thing that I bought, with the shiny credit card is…










*Drumroll pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee*











Tadaaa! These lovely notebooks!

I just lost my self-control in that dainty shop while having a look-see in Oxford.

It was quite pricey for an A5 notebook but the brightly lit shop, colourful arrangement of these quirky toys plus the calm and quiet shop just got me excited. I’d say this place enhanced my shopping experience. Bahahaha! I don’t thrive well in busy places guys. I suck at that department.ย ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚

Here comes the best part.

Last month, I think, I was walking around in the mall and stumbled upon that exact green notebook. When I turned the book around, it was almost the same price!






But of course,


A good slice of cake fix every lingering regrets. Bahahahaha.
