I finally got around to cleaning my room yesterday, which is probably a bigger task than you might imagine. To be honest, the reason I dislike cleaning up is not because it’s tiresome, but because cleaning always inevitably leads to me parting with many once loved items which I know will never come to use again. In my drawer (which I only open once ever couple of months), I found my stash of wallets, phone bags and lanyards- each and every one I’ve owned since the beginning of high school. Stuffed in the corner was my pile of tween magazines, which my parents would only buy for me on the odd occasion. In the next drawer, I found a money box full of ‘special coins’ which I’d collected over the years, underneath that, a pile of old cartoon calendars, so cute and pretty I couldn’t bear to throw away eventhough I know the year 2003 won’t come by anymore.
But the longer I don’t write a post, the more time I keep spending just thinking about my blog. It’s crazy, I know.
In other news, I turned on the oven for the first time this year last week for my mum’s birthday. She didn’t want anything too messy or complicated and ended up choosing a pineapple upside down cake, which was just as well as it’s something I’ve been wanting to try for a while. And it gave me an excuse to start making my way through the many cookbooks I just bought in Hong Kong!
