24 things i did/that happened to me when i was 24.

Once again, it’s that time of the year!

24 things i did/that happened to me when i was 24. (of which is not in any significant order)

#1
Found love. I’m excited – SOON <3

#2
I’ve learned about emotional trauma and forgiveness more than i had the past years of my life. Like a cousin said, I’ve finally grown up. And I really do think i did. I’m just glad that my child-like wonder and love for life hasn’t been affected much. I’m still a relatively happy/positive person despite all the crap that had happened. :P

#3
My first plane trip – Travelled to Bali! Was freaking awesome.

#4
Went to Universal Studios! It was amazing, my first time riding a roller coaster that goes upside down. It’s only 90 seconds, but definitely the best 90 seconds of my life!

#5
Learnt a thing or two about self confidence and independence. (Yes, i can wash my own clothes and clean my own kitchen now! :D)

#6
Drove a car. Yes it’s automatic, and I still haven’t got my licence but the fact that I actually tried it and didn’t crash into anything/died makes me so happy! I will do my best to get a licence next year if everything goes as planned. :)

#7
Mummy and art of brick exhibition! It’s pretty cool.

#8
Got to see Aerosmith live!

#9
A new job – well it’s the same job, just a different environment. It is so far the coolest place I’ve ever worked in. This is a definitely a dream come true! (Seriously guys, this is literally a dream i had since forever) Got to meet/work with awesome people too! :)

#16
Abseiling/flying fox in a cave! Caving too!

#23
Being able to see this everyday on my way to work. I can’t begin to explain how much i appreciate NZ’s everyday beauty.

#24
Lived without Internet for six months. It’s cheating, I have data on my phone…but let’s never do that again.

This year had the crappiest start, but it got better and better, and it turned out to be the best year of my life so far. I truly appreciate the close friendships i have forged in a short amount of time, you know who you are.
Looking forward to what the future would bring!
Happy birthday to me, and may you have an awesome 2014! Take care! :)

 

Road trip!

Just some pictures here so I won’t forget the awesome weekend. The rest of them are in my tumblr in the dooblydoo—–>
so many crazy things I did for the first time! Seen snow, geysers, pretty hills/lakes/rivers/mountains, went to hobbiton, hugged Pickles the Shire cat, rolled around in the grass, seen the glow worm caves, caving, abseiling, flying fox, tubing, almost drowned but thank goodness friends got my back, took a leap of faith and jumped off a waterfall in the cave, and then later free climbed 2 waterfalls! Yep. Definitely the best weekend of my life so far. I’m so happy and glad to be alive and exactly where I am right now. :)

Up up and away!

Too many awesome things, too little time! I will be abandoning WordPress for a while unless I have something really important that needs a wall of text that I need to remember. I’m spending so much time enjoying life/work and blogging on the phone is such a hassle! In the mean time, you can follow me on twitter or tumblr in the side links, those will be updated regularly. TTFN everyone! Thank you for being such a fan! :P

The house

Thought I would just spam pictures of where I am living now below. I like how my room on level 2 has a creepy room behind the cupboard like from the conjuring. Haha. From now on, pictures will be small as I am exclusively blogging on my phone. Also trying to save on data. Bad earthquake hit again today. On the good side, we got to leave work when the sun is still out. Let’s hope I won’t die anytime soon. We live by the beach so a tsunami is very much possible.

Carnival, movies, rainbows and finally a home!!

Currently blogging on the smartphone since connection is crappy here. Bunch of tiny pictures below.

So last week Indah and I went to buy a mattress (to put on the floor) for our new house last Friday. We went to Porirua and it was such an amazing sight to see. I guess my eyes are still not used to the beauty of NZ. And i wish it never will. Still the wide-eyed girl i was 3 weeks ago. Went to watch The Wolverine and The Conjuring yesterday. They are both pretty awesome shows.

Also went to a carnival. There was a freaking rainbow! It was a nice pasar malam-ish kinda thing but not at night. I had the best Mexican tacos and chocolate crepe ever. LOVE IT.

Finally we moved! Spent the whole Sunday buying things for the house. I shall upload pictures later once everything is more settled.
