There’s A Right Way For A Guy To Challenge You

Thought Catalog

Sometimes he looks at you like he can’t believe you. He’s proud of you. He thinks you’re an incredible person. Not in a patronizing way, where he thinks it’s cute that you’re trying or it’s sweet that you want to do more with your life.

He just gives you a look that says he knows you can do anything that you want.

He looks at you like an equal. He doesn’t want you to be the final missing piece of his well put-together life or the girl that stands dutifully behind him while he’s conquering the world. He wants to be standing next to you, walking next to you, sleeping next to you, running next to you, doing everything next to you – because he realizes that there is something incredible about you.

He doesn’t think you’re the funniest girl or the smartest girl or the most…

Hello, Weekend!

So yesterday I went for an interview – for a job that I always wanted and in the company that I have always dreamed.

It went well but I know I could do better. I was too exhausted and occupied with meetings and my project that I came to the interview from another meeting.

The downside of interviewing at your client’s place. Sigh. I should have gotten the day off and just prep my mental for the interview, solely ; but I couldn’t afford to miss a day and leave my project team unattended.

Anyways, it’s done. And it’s Friday today yeay! I’m excited because I just restructured some of the big events happening today and organize them next week for my team to have better preparation.

Now it leaves me a bit relax (well, not so but better) after a hectic day yesterday.

I am so looking forward to boarding the train to Batu Gajah this evening. Haven’t seen my husband for the past 3 weeks and I just need to sniff his face! Okay, too much info. -.-” But hello, somebody should applaud me for doing this LDR. 3 weeks is just cray, man! I don’t know how some of my colleagues & friends do it – husband left for offshore/overseas assignment for months!

If that happens to me, I’d drag my husband along! :)

Anyways, here’s me ranting!

Have a good weekend, everyone!


” Just because I don’t react doesn’t mean that I don’t know”

I had this situation whereby I chose not to react to the fact that I know what’s happening and who should I approach. But I chose to (not let it slide..noooo, that’s way too easy) wait and let the Almighty reveal His move. 

I’m talking cryptic right here, guys. But it’s a long story.

Lets just say that the old Azalia would have run & smack that person’s face into pieces (violent. yeah). But the current married & considerate Azalia is taking this big step to do a calculated move.


What makes you happy?

So today is the end of the long Chinese New Year + Federal territory public holiday. Yeay to the long break and boohoo, I have to get back to work tomorrow. 

I’ve been observing my patterns this past few months especially with the wedding coming very very soon and I have a lot on my plate. Doing the wedding planning and executing the tasks on your own can be very exhausting sometimes. 

But you know what, less whining and more working I tell myself. I have to do what I have to do. I don’t like to trouble people and most of the times, I like to work in my own pace and schedule. You know how hard it is sometimes to get people to work in your own pace. It’s almost impossible. 

I surrender and I told myself, I’d like it better if I were to do it myself ; less heart ache and annoyance. Most importantly, I think I find pieces of myself during this journey. I found what are the things that makes me happy, that calms me down at the end of a long day, what are things that get me started in the morning..

  1. Coffee and looking at photos on blogs and instagram in the morning inspires me. I like looking and examining all the colors especially on DIY items, flower bouquets, dresses etc 
  2. I like my morning gym. I like empty streets of Bangsar at 8.00am on weekends. I like the combination of these two. 
  3. I love walking through the streets of Jalan TAR (Which has practically been my second home for this wedding prep), in my flip flops, enjoying the old buildings scenery while doing my shopping.
  4. I love to spring clean my room.
  5. I love eating alone especially for breakfast where I take my time sipping my teh ais and eating my tosai. 

These are few items that I kinda take place during this journey. Wedding preparation sometimes left me worn out on top of office work, and workout at night but I’m glad there are takeaways from this experience. 

p/s: I have yet to see elephants in the zoo. Obviously I love elephants the most! :) 

My favorite animal Part II

Remember I promised I’ll upload my childhood photos with my favorite animal? Well here goes! You are not allowed to laugh. I love my helmet hair alright :D

That other half

Came across this beautiful quote from Bob Marley and I thought of sharing. 

“Falling in love with someone isn’t always going to be easy… Anger… tears… laughter.. It’s when you want to be together despite it all. That’s when you truly love another. I’m sure of it.

Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are.

The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you.

You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.

Bob Marley.
