Lately | Piano Cover: Nuvole Bianche by Ludovico Einaudi

Simply slept too much during the day. A little bits and bobs...

After JJ Lin's cover, here come's another...
I don't usually do classical, been listening to this piece on repeat, called Nuvole Bianche from an Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi. 

and I found this laid at the bottom/deepest end of the drawer past two weeks? Only recalled back I once so fancied this pianist till I actually bought the album. Had been so in love with him as well as Emily Bear but.. Gone are the days, I don't have a particular favourite now.
I couldn't believe at first. I actually sent out a total of 27 postcards from HCMC. Like siao or what seriously. Who on earth would spend her traveling time write all the post cards. ME (facepalm). The content's getting shorter and boring though wtf. How about just send one to the gang's representative next time? Haha if u know what i mean.

Recent favourite. Enough say. Haha. #fatdieme #idontcare

Paid a visit to Malacca. Never get tired of this place where I'd spent my 5 years of university life, wonderfully I would say. As usual, the traffic is crazy, the queue is never ending.

BFF got me this complimentary ticket to YongHwa's concert in sg. CNBlue is my only favourite band. I have no particular favourite singers, but to name only one, it would be CNBlue. Too very bad I couldn't make it because I went to Malacca that weekend. Holy sh*t. Missed a great chance to see him in person. Anyway, since I don't have bias, love all 4 of them, shall wait till the band concert next time. Still super gek-sim though... T,T
There's this one fine day, I went back to JB happily after night shift. EZlink checked. Passport checked. Phones (msia and sg) checked. Earpiece checked. Book checked. Till I reached JB, upon I placed my order for a cup of hot choc only realized... Bloody freaking hell I forgot to bring back my wallet. Luckily left some Ringgit in my coin purse or else... (facepalm again). Brilliant me. Forever clumsy.

Old friends meetup in Sg. Bloody long time never met them although most of us working in Sg. Oh well I know what u wanna say, I'm the one who's forever busy. I myself also don't know where has all the time gone. Anyway it's good to catch up with u. Till next time alright. Pardon my pale/tired face I didn't bother to put on some makeup. 

BBW this year in Johor was just... plain.... boring. To the core. Mostly old, unwanted, non-marketable titles. I found some books I'd bought last time, last last time, last last last time, which means they had those old stocks pilled up. Nah... still VERY cheap. So I couldn't resist myself to pickup some titles just for the sake of buying books (buey paiseh-ly admitted). I usually browse through the intro, reviews (if any) and first chapter if I really wanted to buy the book. Not this time though, I simply grab the titles which seemed captivating. 

6 new books added. Will still read them if I run out of source. Including the new books, guess I still have 20% of the books left unread in my bookcase. For the sake of buying books huh...

Started collecting Cecelia Ahern's works ever since I first read her PS I Love You and Where Rainbow Ends. The Book of Tomorrow however, just like The Gift, a little sprinkle of magic but doesn't make it a fairytale. All in all, I'm not sure if it's way too "teen read" or the story simply has too many weird oddities, the first half of the book is way too boring describing a grumpy little girl's play and act. Second half of the book is too complicated with plots twists.
More often than not, I would finish a book feeling sad that it's over. But for this, I'm feeling rather grateful that I'm done. Some more I read the book during my nightshift to while away my time. Consider the thickness of the book, it's a reallllyyyy long story. Perhaps my previous read is too good and I can't seem to enjoy this one. I'm starting to get discouraged by Ahern's latest efforts. 

I have this habit to jot down the quotes I like during the entire reading. No matter how much I don't appreciate the story, I do find some quotes I liked. 

"Nobody who says as little as he does is as simple as you'd think. It takes a lot to not say a lot, because when you're not talking, you're thinking, and he thinks a lot."

"Nothing is never nothing. It's always something."

"You shouldn't try to stop everything from happening. Sometimes you're supposed to feel awkward. Sometimes you're supposed to be vulnerable in front of people. Sometimes it's necessary because it's all part of you getting to the next part of yourself, the next day."

Maybe I'm more into non-fiction as I grow older. But fictions do get my imagination goes wilder. What my next book will be...

Need a short escape. 

Need a cup of good coffee.

Need a good drink.

and it's almost 4 in the morning.

Need a good rest now.

I guess.
