Grown Up


Outfit details : Headscarf - Poplook.com, Blazer - H&M, White shirt - My mum's , Black jeans - H&M, Shoes - Random shop in Ampang Park

As a child, the three things that defined an adult for me was :

i. Driving
ii. Going to Banks 
iii. Wearing office attire

Anyone who did those three things was considered a real grown up to little Izza and today, 
that same little girl did all of the above "adult" tasks, and wow, 
reality just hit me that I'm not that little girl anymore. 

My classmates and I had to dress up in formal attire today to present ourselves as the committee for a Business Communication talk that we organised. I got really excited looking at everyone dressed up in formal wear because I'm sooooo used to seeing them in t shirts and jeans that seeing everyone looking sharp with blazers and ties was hella refreshing. Everyone looked so good today, I swear !!


The talk went well, and the committee had lunch together after. I rushed back to my car after we finished taking photos because my feet were killing me and I felt like a dozen blisters were forming on my feet with every step I take. So after that I drove to a carwash because Kimberly was looking grimy as hell and I couldn't take it anymore. I got Kimberly washed all nice and squeaky clean, and I even got her vacuumed ! Yay for my clean car. I went to Maybank after that to get a card replacement because the deposit machine freaking swallowed my card the other day and being card-less is so hard because one, I can't online shop (well I can use M2U but sometimes they want my card details), two, I can't withdraw money. So I took a number and I had 10 people ahead of me, I thought 'Ok, 10 people je. Not gonna be that long.' WRONG. It took an hour to get to my turn. Oh My God. I hate waiting. I am very impatient when it comes to queuing, and number-waiting.. and traffic jams. I feel like smashing everything !! *inhales, exhales* The reason it took so long was because they only had one counter open out of two for these kind of services and the other 7 counters were for transactions only so zzzzzzzz. 

After waiting.. and waiting. I got my card and my new card is actually a lot prettier than my old one (the hideous black with lotsa cherries) ! The new one is called Visa Platinum Debit or something, and it's metallic silver (we all know I'm team silver > gold), and although they still have that stupid cherry on it, it's only one big cherry instead of a bunch of cherries. So it's cool. Kudos to you Maybank. Got hikmah behind me losing my card to the satanic card-swallowing machine after all. 

Done with my bank shenanigans, I went to the post office to post something out, and then the bookstore to print a few documents, gas station to feed Kimberly, dropped by Bank Islam for a while to use the ATM and then I finally went home. I did all of those things in my blazer and man I felt like a busy career superwoman or Vivy Yusof or something yknow hahahaha. I came home and looked myself in the mirror and realise that this is the start of adulthood responsibilities. Next thing you know I'll be paying my own bills and everything... Yikes. 

Anyway, here are some photos from today !
