HANGOUT: The Daily Fix

The Daily Fix Cafe Malacca | A Beautiful Distraction by Ruo Ling Lu

tucked behind a souvenir shop in Jonker Street is The Daily Fix which I've been wanting to visit it for some time. don't let it's secrecy fool you though. it's Insta-famous and packed with people from all over the place especially on the weekends. we got to pop by for a break between shooting our final year project in Malacca.

not having my usual dose (9.5 hours!) of sleep combined with constantly being in a sea of people for two days, that's the perfect recipe to make Ruo Ling grumpy and easily irritated. but fluffy pancakes to the rescue! matched with my dream team, I happily took that as the day's fix.

Just A Minute In February

now it strikes me as funny that I never thought of playing with a white background all these while. I'm not being lazy, okay? I really want to try this very minimalistic style.

watching | Ocean's trilogy a.k.a. Brad Pitt eating constantly (I dunno what to do now until when Ocean's 8 hit the big screens on June maybe I should just plan a heist with Wilson), The End of The F***king World (me within the first minute of the series: holy sh-t what did I sign up for?)

fearing | that I have too much patience. like, you know, even when my favourite artist releases a new song / album, I can wait for a couple of years or so to finally listen to the (old) new release. =.=

feeling | relieved when I see my old, regular stuffs become damaged. sounds mad, I know, but I feel like we're buying too many and changing too fast only to use them rarely in this fast-paced world.

wondering | where's all that sincerity? you can't even say people are insincere anymore because there's no effort to begin with. so, where's the sincerity?

reading | Creep by Jennifer Hillier (it's meh) and The Catcher In The Rye (again! gimme all that angst!)

a Birdman-ish Malaysian Short

brainstorming session? no, thanks, man.

Just A Minute In January

not sure what to do, so Pantone Colour of 2018 it is! can't name a colour I like, but the colour I disliked the most is.. somewhere there around purple on the spectrum. but I change my mind. looking forward to all things ultraviolet this year.

dreaming | of a 1970s Parisian apartment, bathed in orange lights, complete with a turntable and good music. oh, and a bathtub! but hopefully it's not filled with stinkin' tobaccos. 

loving | cyberpunk vibes and steampunk... yeah, more cyberpunk.

watching | From 5 To 9 (omg I miss JDrama so much! I know I say this every time I watch one, but I watch them rarely!) and a handful of films - some good, some meh (I will probably not annoy you here with the films I watched anymore since I signed up for Letterboxd, feel free to talk films with me!)

listening | to the music that I would be listening if I'm living in my dream Parisian apartment and Florence + The Machine (thanks, FF!)

reading | Nineteen Eighty-Four, finally!
