Today I’m celebrating Christmas… just like any other (Sun)day.
I woke up as usual, did a morning workout, ate breakfast, all without hearing Christmas songs or gifts being unwrapped under the Christmas tree. To be honest, I didn’t even buy a Christmas tree.
However, I did go out and did some last minute Christmas shopping for an upcoming special event. Then, I went to watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on the way. After some grocery shopping, I finally went back home. It was definitely the ‘calmest’ Christmas I have ever spent.
It didn’t disturb me at all. I just felt… at peace.
I don’t need a fancy Christmas tree or new clothes or a huge dinner to feel the spirit of Christmas. If Christmas is all about giving without expecting anything in return, giving in genuineness, love and kindness, then I have spent a good Christmas, and it’s enough.
Have I defeated the power of the commercialisation of Christmas? Yes. Maybe. Almost 🙂
Anyway, I would just like to keep it short and wish you all a Merry Christmas!

It was this Friday July 17th that marked my one-year anniversary with Malaysia. Yes, I have been living in Malaysia, as an undergraduate student, for more than a year now. Not once did I go back to my home country, Mauritius.
How does it feel?
Someone told me that I would change after having stayed abroad for so long. Someone else added that while I would change, the people back in my country, my family, would not, which will give off a weird feeling if I go back one day. Today, I can say I completely agree. I’ve changed, no, I’ve grown.
Not literally obviously.

Everyone has their own way of showing their Christmas joy 🙂
This was taken on Christmas night, with my siblings and cousin 🙂
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

“Let there be light” to “It is finished” only amounted to bo-oum.
~ A Passage to India by E. M. Forster
I hope I got the quote right… Didn’t check but then a few weeks ago I was revising this book for my literature exams 😛
Anyway… LET THERE BE LIGHT!

Yeah I’m getting back to the dailypost’s weekly photo challenge! And this week’s theme is ‘unexpected‘.
What I found unexpected lately was that instead of the sunny shiny weather we should have in summer, we are being drained in rain almost everyday since the holidays began. Though, let’s be frank, I like that rainy weather and that’s mainly because it’s not intolerably hot then. So I’m not suffocating in an overheated air!
The photo I chose for the challenge was one taken by my sister when we were at the hotel during the weekend and it kind of rained a lot the last day of our stay.
So no, don’t worry there’s no flood around my area, this is just a pool! A swimming pool.
Anyway, please feel free to leave your interpretation of ‘unexpected’ below!
If you want to watch the latest vlog I filmed (I did it at the hotel itself! Great way to start the holidays, right?) just go to the ‘Vlogging Channel’ tab at the top of this blog or just click HERE! By the way, I edit the ‘Vlogging Channel’ tab every time I upload a new video, thus showing you my latest vlog 🙂
Have a great day!

I don’t know why many people think ‘nerd’ to be pejorative.
So my exams are finally over! And my long long holidays, until I go to university next year in September probably, have just begun!
And what I’ve learnt during those seven years in college… is to be myself.
Which reminds me how sometimes people would call me ‘nerd’ to taunt me… but I would only be pleased, as for me being a nerd is awesome! How can reading books and getting obsessed over Game of Thrones NOT be awesome?? 😉
Thus, here’s how I’m going to spend my ‘nerdy’ holidays… at least for the time being!
1. Catch up on reading the Game of Thrones series! (I’m currently at ‘A Storm of Swords 2’!)

I’m officially getting back to the Weekly Photo Challenge! And this week’s theme is The Golden Hour.
I took this photo from my room and it’s sunrise on a Saturday morning when I usually do my weekly morning jogging. It’s not a much recent photo but I think I never shared it with you right? Although I did on instagram.

On Friday 3 May 2013, I was finally 18 years old!
Now you’ll know why I wasn’t able to blog until now.
So yeah, on Friday, it was my birthday. I’m not the party-girl type, so I didn’t have a very big party with drinks and evening dresses…
It was better than that.
And that was because we went on our annual educational tour (school outing) on that day! Such a coincidence, right? So we put our pens and copybooks away and headed for the wild forests…
In fact we went to Domaine De Lagrave where we walked among the wilds and climbed on top of a mountain until we thought we would die of exhaustion or cold or… laughter!

I wasn’t sure which photos to post for this week’s challenge, which is Culture, since there has been nothing in my life that has been photographically culturally interesting… (lol) but, browsing through this year’s photos, I found these:

Illumination… An interesting theme to tackle since New Year celebrations have just passed… Thus I photographed little fireworks 😀 (the one that we place on the ground and which remains on the ground even when we light it up!)

The video Gangnam Style (which I obviously won’t have to link here because everyone know what I’m talking about) by PSY has become such a viral success around the globe in so little time, that, with the blink of an eye, I found myself in that K-pop addictive boat as well, heading towards an adventure I could never have imagined…

I am not the type of person who every year makes a list of resolutions. But there are things that I keep in mind, things that I wish for, things that I want to happen during the year.
These are my goals of the year.

Anyone ever saw an Angry Birds inspired birthday cake? Ever ate one?

I’m sorry I wasn’t able to do this post earlier but I’m very busy with school and I’m having some mood swings too – typical of a teen 😛 – but anyway, it’s obvious that my short one-week trip to Malaysia hasn’t left me untouched. Sincerely I love it there, I love to discover another culture… and be among people who only have either an iPhone or a Samsung Galaxy SII! 😀
Seriously, if you’ve already gone there or if one day you go there, I’ll make sure in this post that you haven’t/won’t missed anything. Feel free to add more to the list. Otherwise… here are the 10 awesome things I did in Malaysia:
1. Shopping à volonté!
Storeys and storeys of shops… some especially selling high quality shoes at a low price 😉
Truly the variety and affordable range of products you can get in Kuala Lumpur mainly are infinite!
