2018 September In Retrospect | Bye Bye Summer

2018 September In Retrospect | Bye Bye Summer

Ah, September! You are the doorway to the season that awakens my soul… but I must confess that I love you only because you are a prelude to my beloved October.
― Peggy Toney Horton


September was depressing.

Living away from home has finally hit me in because I’m now homesick.

Like homesick, homesick.

I miss my family, my annoying siblings who only message me when they need money, Malaysian food, hot Malaysia weather, rainy days – I miss home.


Talking about home makes me depressed.

Anyway, I went to Tokyo Tower and the sight is pretty normal. Not as pretty as Umeda Sky Building at Osaka but it wasn’t bad. Tokyo Tower is a place that I will visit once and would not visit again for the second time.

  • The Culture Map by Erin Meyer

I bought The Culture Map book last month and the book is so helpful if you’re working in a global community with co-workers coming from a totally different culture. Like how in Japan, China or most parts of Asia, generally a good communication is mostly subtle and messages are spoken between the lines.

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Stephen R. Covey

As for this book, I’ve actually read it before but no matter how good the self-help book is, if you don’t apply it in real life, it would be meaningless. I re-read this book again from April and I’m not ashamed to say that I haven’t finished the book yet because I want to apply into my habit – step by step.

All of these webtoons are cute and their arts are absolutely gorgeous. 100% recommend!


I’m so proud that I managed to achieve my all-time goal in blogging which is to post at least once a week.


I’M IMPRESSED. *happy tears*

  1. *scream* Oh my gosh oh my gosh I *love* all the Webtoons you put in your post! They are all adorable and so good to read when you’re relaxing 🙂

    I’m sorry you’ve been feeling so homesick — I can’t imagine what that feels like, because even when I’ve been traveling, I’m still with my family or in a place where part of my family lives. But wait… I have an idea! Maybe to lessen your homesickness, you could write a post about all the things you love about Malaysia? I’ve been wanting to learn more about Malaysia for a while now, so I would love to hear what you (as a native Malaysian) have to share about your home. 😊

    Sending you love + positive thoughts! I hope you feel better in the upcoming weeks! 💪

    1. Yay! Webtoon for me is more relatable compared to manga these days.

      Hahaha. Your idea is gold! I’d write about in one of my next posts. Thank you Zoei! Your words just make me smile today x
