Roots Dessert Bar @ The Museum Hotel, Georgetown, Penang

It's the weekend of Mothers' Day and my bestie finally had her weekend off. As she drove 1 hour back to Penang island to celebrate Mothers' Day with her family at night, we decided to have a catchup after lunch. 

Old Memories from My Old Room

After living 6 years in Melbourne on my own, I am now back in Penang. 

I miss my room and my apartment in Melbourne so much though. Not really getting used to the heat here T_T

Last 5 Days In Melbourne

6 years ago, I spent my 18th birthday on the plane alone to Melbourne. I had a backpack that was half of my size with my laptop in it and a freaking electric guitar on one shoulder. I nearly killed myself as I walked through the long airport hallway. At 18, I would never have a second thought about anything. I thought wearing graphic tees and denim all the time was cool. I had this horrible haircut. Guitars and Korean dramas were the life of me.
I'm 24 this year and I'm the complete opposite from the 18-year-old me who just got to Melbourne. Even a small little handbag weighs a tonne on my shoulder (god knows how did I handle the guitar and laptop back then) and I am no longer as innocently courageous as before. As I am typing this, I am sitting in the middle of my super messy room waiting for a buyer to pick up my unwanted piece of furniture. The reason for my departure is because I haven't gotten the Australian Permanent Residency visa's invitation from the Australia government, so I'll have to go back and wait offshore.  

24 Things I Learned at 24

When I was young, I used to imagine how much I would've achieved and learnt at the age of 24 because that's when my mom had me. Little did I know that quarter life crisis would hit me so badly.

I have nothing figured out - not a bunch of savings to buy my own apartment and I see making my bed, having a clean desk and doing my laundry as "milestones" of life...On top of that, the biggest questions are "should I wash my hair today" and "what should I eat for the next meal".

Despite all of these, I feel that I do have some lessons that I learn which are worth sharing.

Recap of 2017

Not going to lie, I am still wrapping my head around the fact that I am turning 24 in 41 days and it is 2018 now.

Here's the time where everyone started to come up with all those Facebook memories and Instagram best photos...I am still keeping it old school by writing it on my blog. Or to play the game more seriously, I may somehow copy this blog post into my diary if I feel like it.
