Highlights on Oct/Nov/Dec Events 2017

A three consecutive months update.

October 2017
(1) Hull fair 2017- 12th October A glimpse of the UK's oldest fair with 700+ years history. I was stuffed by 5 donuts that night, did not regret it ๐Ÿฉ. I have found my inner child once again (I love me some more fairs ๐ŸŽ ๐ŸŽก๐ŸŽข๐ŸŽˆ). Just a happy girl strolling in the theme park with her bag of sugar coated donuts ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป+๐Ÿฉ.

Some of the fun moments we had.
(2) Whitby- Northern England- 21th October
A trip to this seaside town in Northern England ⛵๐ŸŒŠ which is well known for its fish and chips dish, Whitby! A quiet place for strolling and getting to know doggos ๐Ÿถ. 

Met some new people along the way.

Hadley's fish and chips £10
A little bit too windy I would say.
Light tower.

2017 ๐Ÿ“†

I keep rewriting the numbers over and over again and yet there is no simple way to write it. And yes, 2017 is coming to an end. Somehow I always write a post to wrap up my whole year and it has been a habit of mine since 2011, 5 years.

Just so if you wanted to read the wrap-up posts for the previous years:
2013 (Skipped 2013, 5 years then)

I have written either summaries and/or thought posts, depending the year itself. I hope you enjoy reading them before coming back to this post.

I will try keeping it short on the events this year, so I will just include the entries' links and/or photos if the entry is not posted in here (I apologized if you haven't seen me posting some of the events here) **I will write entires for the missed out events, stayed tune!** If you want to have a read, feel free to do so. Each posts has different inspirations and might as well linked to my personal thoughts.

Take care of yourself

because no one else will.

I always tell myself this. It serves as a notion rather than thinking negatively. As you know, I am living alone, far away from my loved ones. I am not the most independent person, but I am fortunate that I have practiced to be since little. I am a discipline child who packs her own books for tomorrow's classes, fold her bed sheets after waking up and build her own time schedule for tasks etc. Even when I am working, I understand the importance of time schedules, complying with your routine of course. If it doesn't, it has no purpose at all.

Anyways, this thought hit me when I fell ill in the UK during my first month here (My health love to play jokes on me). I have to do chores, settle my school work, cook for myself, consume medicine even if I don't feel like moving around. A lot of thoughts went through my mind and it bothers me that I used to take advantage of my mother when I am feeling ill back in Malaysia. Living alone is not …

Little accomplishments

They matter.

We are believed to achieve big things since little. These expectations were built up by people around us, from society to parents at home, to get into prestigious corporates, to have a great source of income in order to have a "successful" life. However, all you wanted to do are the little things. Cheering someone up, purchasing a box of homemade cupcakes for donation or even give your favourite food to someone who really need it.

For me, the little things count. The 10% extra work you put on your undergoing project or assignment, yes, it counts. People may not see it, but that does not mean it is not an effort. There are many things in life for us to focus. Most of the time, people will focus on the big things, a wide view of everything. However, if you take a look through a "microscope", you will see things, little accomplishments that someone else will celebrate.

Do not worry that you will not shine. Everyone shines in a different way. Some people h…
