4 min read


Final week I made a decision to look at Barbie, after spending many days working in entrance of the pc. I feel I deserve a relaxation, so I acquired prepared, went out early within the morning within the laborious rain, and took the Seize to IOI. On the best way to IOI, all of the sudden my sister texted me, asking what I used to be doing (on that random morning, on a weekday) and I advised her that I used to be on my method to watch Barbie. At that actual second, the plan immediately modified and he or she was there with me to look at Barbie. I used to be considerably aggravated as a result of she invited herself (I believed it was my private time off), however afterward, I used to be glad as a result of:

  1. GSC now not accepts money, they do not also have a handbook ticket counter and on that specific day, I solely had money. So she saved the plan and we managed to purchase tickets to look at Barbie. 
  2. We purchased a 1030 am film on a weekday, so there was actually nobody else aside from us within the cinema. Think about if I solely went there alone, in a darkish secluded place, if something occurs, then nobody would know. 

So I realized 3 issues on that day: 

  1. Money alone is now not dependable, at all times convey alongside digital cash with you. 
  2. Do not watch motion pictures throughout the off-peak time, alone. If you’re alone, watch it throughout peak time as an alternative. Or a minimum of see if anybody else already booked some other seats so you will not be actually alone in there.  
  3. Issues occur as a result of they should occur, you may really feel aggravated at first since you did not anticipate it, however ultimately, the correct causes will reveal themselves and you will be glad that it occurred *hopefully.


Shifting ahead a number of days later, I used to be supposed to fulfill my boss that afternoon. Like all regular particular person assembly her employer, I ready early, known as in Seize on one other wet morning, and headed to the workplace on a prepare. Midway to the workplace, my boss postponed the meetup, once more. 

I used to be ready mentally to spend the day within the metropolis after the meetup, proper. So I did not need to go dwelling simply but. Sure, I used to be once more, considerably aggravated by the change of plan. I made a cease at Pasar Seni, went to a random cafe, and spent a number of hours studying Conversations with Mates till the final web page. It was a blissful silent morning, having to learn with out distraction. I had a matcha latte and a plain croissant (and apparently, that was my solely meals of the day). I sat there till I completed studying after which there have been a few individuals who determined to sit down subsequent to my desk and spent the whole time attempting to get the nicest selfies to submit on social media, they had been loud and pleased, and I felt that I ought to go. 

I did not have any plans, I used to be in the course of the busy metropolis on a Friday afternoon. So I walked and walked and walked. I do know concerning the Junk E-book Retailer in Bukit Bintang, however the final time I went there, the used books had been fairly pricy, much more costly than new books in Bookxcess. I walked from Pasar Seni station to Central Market, I attempted to search out the Used Bookstore in CM however apparently, it was closed down. I explored the place, it has been some time since I hung out in CM (*it held histories). Then from CM, I went again to Pasar Seni, I wanted low-cost books, so I headed to The Backyard to go to Artfriend and Bookxcess. Purchased some provides and a few books, and walked some extra till it was late within the afternoon, it rained closely once more, and felt like I used up the time to recharge nicely that day.

There, day was spent on books and strolling.

I want I used to be in a metropolis the place low-cost used books will be discovered in every single place, however I am not and books are actually costly in Malaysia. Too unhealthy my pastime is pricey to take care of. 

Listed below are a number of the bookstores I went to this 12 months:

  • Eslite at Bukit Bintang
  • Kinokuniya at KLCC
  • MPH at Nu Sentral
  • Tsutaya Bukit Jalil
  • Books & Bobs, GMBB
  • Bookxcess at The Backyard
  • Bookxcess at REX KL
  • Bookxcess at MyTown

Okay, I’ll strive the Nationwide Library subsequent time and see if their e-book itemizing improved over time.

And on Sunday, I went out for a hilly run. 

Particularly a hill run as a result of I wanted the coaching and the hardship of doing one thing I did not like so I may rise above. Later I used to be sore everywhere in the entire day.
