…I’m not, but the general sentiment of the song is fitting.
I get up early
I look around me
I’m buying coffee by the pound
But when I’m sleeping
I’m so deep in it
I can’t keep myself awake
–Keep Myself Awake, Black Lab
Funny how I’m full of plans when I running around working, but when I get home, all I want to do is sleep. Or stare lethargically at the computer screen. Blogging, organising my photos, backing up things, sorting out my new music, tidying my room, even reading… peh.
Which is why I’m glad that I have one column’s worth of books already read and that Doreena is contributing one column. That gives me roughly 2 weeks to get reading. I just started The Devil Wears Prada, but a few pages in, I realised I’d rather be watching the movie instead. Not because the book is bad, but because I’m tired of reading at this time. I’m hoping this can be cured whem my salary finally comes in and I can go splurge on books at Book Castle.
Ramadan is here and we in the media industry knows what it means: fewer events to attend and a lot of buka puasa everywhere!
Last night, I went to Hotel Grand Continental to try their buka puasa menu. Martina was a little indignant because I came alone, but nobody else wanted to come. Ramadan may mean a lot of free food for us, but most of us would rather go home!
Zack showed up at some point with a colleague (his name escapes me). After I was done, Martina and I joined them, planning to bid them a good night. I ended up staying much longer than I planned. In fact, I stayed until Martina and Zack’s colleague left, and we were joined by Azreen, Mac, Jerome and Iain.
I think what made me stay is that Zack and I were actually having a conversation.
Couple of days ago, I was dispatched to a Ramadan food bazaar of my choice to do an article about what it’s like. I picked my old stomping ground – Satok. I used to work in the area, and frequented the bazaar every year. I missed last year’s.
The result of my excuration can be seen here, where Webbie at CatsCity reposted it. With the exception of two minor editoral errors, I’m rather pleased with it.
One of my favourite photos is below. You can find the rest here. (Yes, I think it’s safe to say I’m a Zooomr convert.)
