It’s been quite a happening month since I last posted. I got even more settled into my new job as a copywriter for an advertising agency (I officially end probation next month!), I adopted a kitten (!!!) after years of wanting my own cat, I visited Bangkok with Nigel on the shortest weekend holiday ever, I signed up for Zumba classes after my dance ones ended to try something of a higher intensity for a bit, and I also celebrated a friend’s birthday.
It’s been nice just settling into a quiet daily routine, and I’m beginning to appreciate spending time with just a couple of good friends. Lately, I made a pact with two friends to meet every fortnight to relax and chill over good food/drinks, which has been working out pretty great so far! I’m the kind of person who likes having things to look forward to – explains me spending all my money on holidays all the time – so knowing that there’s a confirmed date set up for me every two weeks is awesome.
Sharing some good things of late:
Tried Sunday Folks at Holland Village on Cher’s birthday. It was delightful! I like my waffles bigger though, but it’s a nice place that I would definitely revisit again.
At Asiatique in Bangkok ^^
And here’s my star and also the biggest ball of mischief to have stepped into my life since…forever. Baby Kira is around 2.5 months old, and an absolute terror. We picked her out from a litter of six because she seemed to be a nice, demure kitten – which is exactly what my household needs, since everyone’s so busy. Of course, life doesn’t always work out the way you want it to. All hell broke loose within a day of Kira coming home and she now spends her days playing hide-and-seek with us, scratching every furniture she can possibly lay her claws on, and meowing every morning at 6am without fail to get her breakfast. My goodness. But she’s really the sweetest cat ever, and I’m just hoping she grows out of her playful biting and clawing because it hurts. She’s growing so fast that I know she’s going to be a full-grown cat before I know it, so while I’m relishing the day when it comes because she’ll be a lot more independent, I know I’m going to miss picking her up effortlessly because now she’s so tiny.
I’m so glad that everyone helps to take care of her and that her worst days have passed. She was pretty sick when she first came to us and many nights were spent worrying about her, but now she’s bright and happy and all’s good. She’s had her first vaccination and will be having her second in a month, so I’m looking forward to that! Would love to bring her out for walks once she’s got all her jabs done so she can burn off more energy.
That’s it for me for now, till then! xx
