Darkly, Deeply, Beautifully Blue | Blue Sky Tag

Darkly, deeply, beautifully blue – the sky
― George Byron Gordon

I was tagged by 8 amazing people to do the Blue Sky Tag that I have been postponing to write about since ahem a month ago. In my defence, I’m busy doing job hunting and everyone should just pray for me to get one asap.

  1. 1. My mum used to have phobia towards cats but since some stray cats dropped by our house, she can touch them now 🙂
    2. I wonder is sushi means similar to kimbap in Korean? Somehow I am confused if rice rolled with seaweed is sushi or sushi means anything raw etc?
    3. Simple plan ni… teringat zaman sekolah, zaman ada kaset2 😀
    4. I agree that blue have some sort of magic to calm someone. I love watching the sky, it is really calming!
    5. Haha, same here, I need to sleep after Fajr (it is 3am here), it is quite hard to sleep with full tummy T__T

    1. 1. I have never touch cats before. Maybe I should and see if I could overcome my phobia. Or maybe NOT. haha

      2. In a sense, yeah. But there’s a lot of type of sushi in Japan and kimbap is one of them. In Japanese, kimbap would be makizushi.

      3. 90’s kids could relate.

      4. I have a lot of sky pictures on my phone.

      5. Same. I think I gain weight instead of losing it on ramadan because of these.

  2. Perghhh banyakknyaaa rasya jenuh nak baca satu2, btw i like your answer
    8. Have you ever experience anything supernatural?
    Being alive.

  3. Wuitttt Thanks for answering this my lovely kak Rasya! xD I felt very excited reading it! Like Oh my you really answer it hahahaha LOL I bet kak Rasya mesti suka chinese punya movie/drama/anime or something like that? Just guessing and if you really like it how about I suggest you this one anime called Quan Zhi Gao Shou if you haven’t watch it yet laaaa cuz I found it best lah jugak boleh baca sinopsis duluuuu https://myanimelist.net/anime/33926/Quan_Zhi_Gao_Shou eheh! Once again thanks for answering my questions Arigato gozaimasu~!

  4. Ohhh my.. panjangnyaaaaaaa 😀 Senang kan kumpulkan semuanya sekali. Hehe.
    The Fault in Our Stars tak best eh? Baru je download ebook. Ingatkan menarik sebab filem nampak menarik je (tak tengok pun. Hehe).

  5. Thank you for answering mine! Amazing? Ya Allah..nahhhh hahahaa anyways thanks for strolling around my blog kak Rasya phew mesti penat menaip untuk jawab semua soalan kat atas kehkeh :V but yh lot of thanks! sebab bersusah-payah jawab huhuhu

  6. 8 persons?? Omg that sound tiring. I do love that you answer it so nonchalantly plus how you fits procrastinating as answer to relevant (?) questions. Can you stop having such an aesthetically pleasing blog design. It looks too good and I hate that I love it so muchh. I used to want to be an archaeologist too until walid say it will not be a good future. Typical asian dad. I settled by watching The Mummy instead lol. I say go for tshirt and yoga pants. “Beautiful” baju raya is so overrated.

    1. lololol. Omg same. My dad didn’t say it outright but I knew he didn’t want me to have a career as an archaeologist because being a girl and all. I would be more than happy to wear comfortable clothes during raya but because I’m going to celebrate raya thid time in Malaysia I don’t think I could. Or else there would be a headline over news ‘pelajar dibantai emak sebab baju raya’ hahaha

  7. Sushi i ls my fav too. Sedapnya.
    Rock kapak. High five!!
    South korea done! Japan insyaAllah.
    Nasi lemak sotong forever. Hehe.
    Selamat menjalani ibadah puasa rasya. 🙂

    1. Yay! Sushi and rock kapak! Kids nowadays, they didn’t understand the feels when singing rock kapak songs.
      selamat puasa juga kak Ana!
