Untitled Part Deux

I admit defeat. Restlessness (and the desperate craving for caffeine) has gotten the best of me, and when images of a warm cup of cafe mocha drifts in and out of my peripheral vision, I was swift to get myself change and out of the house and back within an hour. And now, I am happily sipping on a regular cup from SF and had just finished swallowing down a 6-inches of Chicken Pizzola.

I love KL. I love living in KL. I love living within 2 LRT stations away from KLCC. I love the fact that the nearest LRT station to my home is only a 5-minutes walk away. And I love the fact that I can get dress, hop on the LRT, go to KLCC, get myself a Cafe Mocha and a subway and some cookies, and be back within the hour. If I am disciplined enough, I'm pretty sure I can do all those within 30-minutes if you dared me. I think I'm good enough to map out the most efficient route through KLCC and back and still be able to miss the lunch-hour crowd.

Oh. Sorry. What's the purpose of this entry again? Oh yes... me... avoiding studying. Yet again. But at least I've made some progress! I have now opened my notes and my past year exam papers spread all over my study tables in the hopes that if ever my parents (ie. my mum) passes by, they'd believe that I have studied enough to earn myself a running-break to get myself some much needed caffeine.

Oh! And you know what? I think I will take myself on that trip to Laos after all - despite my husband's objections to me travelling solo. Because I figured that I don't want to live my life in regret and grow to despising my husband for not letting me go in the first place. I'm sure he'll come round to it once I've landed safely back at the airport. I know he's not convinced that my safety is secured there but... I want to do this. There is no point in me going back-and-forth anymore when my gut instinct is yelling at me to "GO!".


I'm coming into my third week of my supposed 'study' leave, exams in 2 days and... I've yet to touch a book. Well... okay... I touched it. Even spared a minute to flip through the notes, took a glance at the past year papers and even carried the books anywhere I go... but I have not officially studied. (My husband is going to kill me if he finds out!)

Instead, it is almost 1pm on this sunny Tuesday morning, I'm sitting at my study table dressed in the same pajamas for the last 2 nights, and nursing a bad headache for starring at the laptop for 10 hrs yesterday. And I'd like to blame Disney Channel for that. And my sister - for putting me through re-runs of Wizards of Waverly Place, Sonny with a Chance and iCarly (ok... this one belongs to Nick). Which... I've a feeling that she'll end up turning the fingers back at me since I was the one person responsible for getting her hooked on these tv shows in the first place. Yes... I still love my Disney Channel... not so much Nickelodeon... and sometimes Cartoon Network if any of the DC Comics are on.

And my leave suppose to end this week, but I'm so tempted to extend it some another week or so. Why? Because work is depressing and I still have a ticket to Laos, for which I have yet to decide whether I should go to or not. *sigh* This time last year was pretty good wasn't it? Here I was... absolutely ignoring my exams (yet again) and all pumped up to go on my first solo backpacking excursion through Vietnam. I still want to go there again and I still have an open invitation from Mr Bin for another motor bike excursion through Ho Chi Minh Trail... *sigh*... I wish I could just quit it all... leave this all behind me for awhile and go off where nobody can find me.
