My family and I have finally settled in our new home ! The big move happened last week, and man, it was soooo tiring. I'm not fully satisfied with how my room is yet because I still have a lot that I want need to get. So far, I am loving it here. But. It doesn't feel like home yet. A couple days after I moved in, my cat Butter went missing. It's been about 5 days now and he's still nowhere to be found. I am devastated, and my house just feels.. empty. Like there's a void present and it can only be filled when Butter is around. People who know me really well, would know how much I love my cats. Butter didn't like it when we moved, he was really upset. So I think he went to find his way back to our old home. I'm extremely worried for him. Is he okay ? Is he lost ? What is he eating ? It's raining, where is he taking shelter ? I cry just thinking about Butter, but I pray that he's safe and that he'll come home soon. I've been trying to be optimistic and tell myself that he will come home soon. But it's getting harder as the days go by, and I don't know how I'm going to deal with it if he doesn't come back after a while. 
I miss you, Butter boy. 

Sigh. Okay. Enough being sad, Izza. 


Anyway, on the 17th I went on a field trip to Melaka for our Malaysian Studies Project and I had a lot more fun than I expected haha. The only part that sucked was that it was a video project, and I couldn't use Olivia (that's my camera's name) because the lens broke !!! I don't understand why, because I'm pretty sure I didn't do anything to it.. but yeah. I'm sad because I used to bring her everywhere I go and take pictures of anything and everything I want, but now she's just sitting there on my shelf in my room collecting dust. Whatever it is I really hope I'm able to get her fixed before raya. I loved taking pics during raya last year, so if I can't do the same this year, it's just gonna suck big time. Okay so back to my point ; Melaka was a lot of fun. I played tourist with my friends for the assignment and it's a shame how we don't explore enough of our own country ! 




Went up the Taming Sari for the first time ! 






We went to the museums, walked around, had good food. It was a good day trip, and I'm really glad we all got to go somewhere (even if it's just Melaka) before our diploma ends. 

After that Melaka trip, I was busy with the move throughout the rest of the week. We brought whatever we could by car (so easy that I have a car and can drive now, because all our previous moves I wasn't much help haha), and the rest of the bigger furniture we left for the movers to bring via lorry on Saturday. 

Last week wasn't as tiring, but it was a week full of due dates. I was busy with the move so I didn't do my assignments as early as I would have, and I left everything riiiiiight until the night before so you could imagine how stressed and unprepared I was for everything. Ugh. Never again will I do that. #notetoself. Highlight of last week was definitely the little get-together at Fariz's place on Wednesday night. I was there for only a couple of hours but it was still such a lovely time spent with everyone. Irfan, Mars, and Sha, especially ! 

Picture stolen from Mars. 

Irfan and I look way too happy and excited here hahaha but I guess that's just because we are. 




We had a small doa selamat here earlier today, just with my relatives, and that was officially our first gathering in the new house ! 
I love having people over, so I'm excited for more makan-makan(s) and inviting my friends over for open houses or sleepovers in the future. 

To end the post, I'll spam a few pictures of Dino : 







Finals in two weeks, and this week is going to be another busy one for me. Can't wait for the semester to enddddddd.
Will try to blog more often (hah, I say this way too much). Have a good week everyone ! x

And a miracle happened, right after I published this at 2AM last night, my mum woke me up at 7 this morning, and Butter was home !! He got skinnier and he looked so tired tho, but he's ok and I'm just really happy he's home :) xx

    1. Hi ! Noooo :( I went to a camera shop and asked and he said that my lens has an 'error' (whatever that means) and I need to get it serviced, which is gonna cost around RM200 - RM500 according to him. The Olympus service centre is in Mont Kiara, but I haven't gone there yet. Taking off the lens from the camera for a few weeks does the trick ke ? I haven't been able to use mine at all !! :(

  8. Yeah I buat troubleshoot and asked around pun everyone said its because of the lens. It does! You should try doing it now just in time for Raya.. Hahaha. Okay la 200-500 ringgit.. I asked kat Seattle it was $500 so memang tak lah hahaha. Thank youu I'll check out the service center soon!

    1. Hi ! Thank youuuu. Oh I'm not staying at Arte tho, my friend is haha. I'll try and do it soon, but no promises ! Been putting it off mainly because I don't have a camera to take pictures of my room with and my iPhone camera isn't good enough for that kind of post so yeah haha. In the mean time, try watching room tours or go through interior deco accounts on Instagram. Lots of inspiration from there ! x
