Books, New Hobbies and OMG I Actually Cooked

Dear Blog,

I know you’re upset that I neglected you but I have a perfect explanation for it … I couldn’t write anymore. I felt like I needed a break before I traumatize you with low traffic and ratings during the infamous DA update, I took a break for a couple of months. Hopefully, I’ll keep the motive and energy to keep posting because I really missed blogging.

In my previous post, I talked about trying new things to break my comfort zone and that’s what I’ve been doing in the past couple of months. I’ve been reading (and listening) to a lot of books, currently sitting on 49 books out of the 100 I challenged myself to finish this year.

I have to say that buying Kindle was a trigger in unleashing my hidden bookworm. I’ve been reading most of my limited free time as being a mom has a lot of time restrictions so I switch from reading and listening. I’m planning to post reviews on the blog, I started it in a couple of posts before. I’m also trying to be more critical when it comes to reviews, I honestly feel horrible when I think about giving a low rating to certain books because I feel that I am personally hurting the author’s feelings (I hope I’m not the only one thinking that way)

I’ve been trying to get into new hobbies, to be more specific “Gardening”. My husband tends this small garden which has various types of trees, flowers and of course his beloved Jasmines.

I’ve been into succulents and cactus for the longest time, and I thought it’s time for me to channel this fixation in getting a cactus. It’s the cutest Bunny Ears cactus I’ve ever seen (You’re not allowed to tell me otherwise) of course I’m planning in growing more succulents and cactuses, probably create one of those small stairs that has pots on them that I keep seeing on Pinterest which I’m sure will never look as aesthetic as the pictures. At least I’ll try and my effort will be valued by my currently non-existent potted plants.

Last month was Ramadhan and let me tell you the greatest achievement of my life, in my twenty-something years on this earth I’ve finally cooked something and fortunately didn’t burn the house down. I would consider myself privileged as I’ve been used to having maids around me that serve, cook, clean and do the laundry for me. When I got married, I wanted to do those chores on my own and it felt refreshing to be able to do all this except for cooking. I was intimidated by the idea that one day I’ll have to cook for my family when I’m clearly bad and inexperienced so this ramadhan I decided to try using the app Tasty, which was a blessing for me and it helped me a lot.

Now that we are up-to-date, I’m happy to be back blogging ā¤
