Nothing Too Fancy



What I'm wearing : Headscarf from dUCk (Georgette Espresso), top from ZARA. 

I start classes again tomorrow and you have no idea how sad I am right now. The whole getting stuck in traffic jams to and fro uni.. assignments.. projects.. deadlines and exams.. Geez. I am so not ready to go back to any of that. But sigh, at least my semester break wasn't wasted on doing nothing. And I'm glad I had a pretty darn good end to it too. I spent almost the whole day with Irfan yesterday, and I'm currently experiencing severe Irfan withdrawals as we speak. Missing him too much, it's ridiculous. Started my day way too early, I was out by 7AM to send my little brother to Sri Aman for an Interact Club event. Went home - had breakfast - played with my cats - got ready, and then I was off to the post office to collect a parcel they failed to deliver. It was from dUCk scarves ! I commented on one of their Instagram posts a while back that my dUCk charm fell off my Toffee Pudding mixed crepe, so they sent me another 2 silver dUCk charms. Too nice of them. 



I look so chubby here but wtv haha

This date, exactly a year ago, Irfan and I went out together for the first time. It's a special day to remember for the both of us. I remember having crazy butterflies in my tummy when I was walking towards him, the awkward conversations, the shy glances and nervous eye contact, what we wore, everything. I was worried that he wouldn't like me after spending time together, but instead everything fell into place. I liked how much he made me smile, I liked how charming he was, I liked how he'd listen to me go on about the most boring things, I liked his smile. I liked all of that then, and that's what's different. Because I love all of that now. I love all that he is. And since that first date, feelings just kept growing and that's why the 29th of March is a date we'd always want to remember. 




I had work today, so that's why we went out yesterday to (sort of) celebrate. And also, Irfan was in Sepang the whole day today for F1. Would have joined him if I didn't have commitments to making sandwiches but oh welllll. Anyway, we watched Demonic yesterday. It was so disappointing !! I expected more. I don't love horror movies but I don't hate them either. Conjuring wasn't scary to me, Insidious wasn't scary to me, and Paranormal Activity was even comical to me in some parts. I don't know man, english horror movies don't scare me enough like Thai horror movies. Thai horror movies are crazy. So after the movie, we had lunch / tea at Dome. I was craving for pancakes the past week so that's what I had, and it's funny cause I had the exact same thing a year ago too. Lol.  Look : - 


2015 : 



2014 :


I wasn't planning on staying for dinner but Irfan persuaded me to go have dinner with him and his friends to celebrate Nahd's birthday at Monte's. It was a surprise birthday dinner for her. I loved that there was a balloon tied to every chair ! Food in Monte's was gooood, and I think the place would look really nice during the day time because of the big windows. I'm definitely going to have lunch there next time to see if I'm right. Besides that, It was really nice to see Azfar, Ando and Su. Listening to Irfan and Ando reminisce about their old KYS days was hilarious. Kinda made me wish that I was in a boarding school too.  


Azfar, Su, Ando, Nahd, yours truly, Irfan.  
After we finished eating, we had Nahd's cake for dessert (the chocolate cake had caramel in the middle, which tasted amazeballs). 
Took group photos and then Irfan sent me to my car cause it was getting late (my late is like 10pm lol) and I needed to go home. 




Irfan's starting his new semester tomorrow too so we're both going to be busy :( But it's okay, we were able handle our own busy schedules in the past 365 days, I'm sure we can handle it in the next 365 days too. Still can't believe it's been a year ! A year of him handling all my drama and mood swings and immaturity when it comes to dealing with things. 
Sigh. I have so much love for you, Amirul Irfan. 

Oh, this is totally out of topic. But the sky has been so beautiful lately ! 
Since I'm out of the house before 7 everyday to go to work, I usually get good shots. A couple of my favourites : 

This one was unreal. I couldn't believe how beautiful it was, masyaAllah.
I even came in late to work because I couldn't stop staring !!


Loved this one too because even though the shades in the sky were muted, the colours were still beautiful.
And my cat Butter was just looking at the sky too. 

Okay, I should probably go and get my stuff sorted out for tomorrow and make sure I get enough rest. I'm still hoping and praying to win the #fvtlngetaway
They're going to announce the winners this week and I'm so nervous.. Haha. I just really want need it.


Have a good week, everyone ! x

    1. Haha it wasn't anything grand, but really special. One night he just told me everythiiiiiiiing he felt for me, he left me speechless and in happy tears by the end of it. He couldn't wait any longer and thought that it was the right time, so he asked me if i'd be his girlfriend after that. May 9th. It was through skype je hahaha but yeah, I wouldn't have it any other way. Aw thank you so much !! Never thought we'd have anybody shipping us hahaha and #irza so cute !! A lot of people call us #pizza though cause his nickname throughout the 5 years he was at his boarding school was Pizzo and all his friends still call him that. Pizzo + izza becomes pizza hahahah so funny.

  9. Izza I need your advice. What should I do if the guy I like likes another girl? I dont want to give up on him just yet because he and I dont know each other, so I feel like if I tried maybe I still have a shot but idk

    1. Oh no, it's always painful when you're caught in a situation like that. How do you know he likes another girl ? And where do you know him from ? Hmm, the thing is it's really hard to stop someone from liking another person. If they're not getting into anything *serious*, I think you should try and get him to talk to you or vice versa. Get to know him first and then see if he's worth liking in the first place. If he is, then maybe things might grow between you too when you guys get to know each other, if he ends up being different than you thought he was then you'll know for sure that you should just let him go to that other girl. It's really easy to be attracted to someone you don't know, I've been there so many times. But 9 times out of 10 the guy is nothing like how I expect him to be lol. So make an effort to know him better okay ?

  10. Well, I see him around in college a lot but we never talk or anything like that, because we're not in the same class or anything. And I knew about him liking another girl through his askfm. Haha I'm a real stalker when it comes to the guy I like, so I ask him a lot of questions there and I found out that he likes another girl, but he hasn't approached her yet. I think he, too, likes someone that isn't in the same class but someone he sees around a lot. But that's the thing, you know. How do I talk to him when we practically don't know each other? And although he likes someone else, I feel like I shouldn't just give up yet because he hasn't talked to her yet, and maybe if I tried approaching him then maybe I'd have a shot. But the problem is now I don't know how to approach him. Words of advice please Izza?

    1. I seee, then you should totally go for him !!! Hahaha I know, I turn into a grade A stalker myself when I like somebody. Hmm, is he usually alone around campus ? If he is, maybe you should just go up to him and say hi. I know it's gonna feel so awkward but you never know until you try. Or if he has instagram or twitter ke apa try saying hi to him online first ? And tell him you always see him around. Haha I always go with the "you look so familiar, do I know you from somewhere ?" (even though I clearly know where he's from and he's "familiar" cause I stalk him too much hahaha) and see where the conversation goes from there. Go for it while the chance is still there !
