Home is where your story begins...

It has been centuries since the last time I blogged. One may think that I probably have left the blogging world for good! Surprisingly I am still going to write, at least I will try!

Speaking about leaving for good, I am leaving the UK for good soon! It feels so odd saying that - suddenly it feels so real! In just a few months time, I will be home wearing flip flops and shorts 24-7 all year round. Home is Brunei and it is a hot tropical country. You're talking about 30 degrees and humid! You can't walk from one building to another without sweating like a pig. That is why we don't walk and everyone is do dependent on their cars - very bad, I know. Anyway, despite it being so hot and humid (which is probably not a good match), it is home. Due to that reason, I have been busy packing my stuff to ship back home. Gosh! Who would ever thought that stuff can actually breed faster than the UK's population! So far I am 80% packed and I already have 11 big boxes. Crazy!!

I am going to miss the United Kingdom so much and it is a place that I will always call my second home. I always complain about the gloomy and cold weather but I guess it is true that you do not appreciate something until you lose it. Now that I know I will never have winter again (Brunei has one season only i.e summer) I wish I enjoyed and appreciate winter more than I did.

So these are some pictures of my humble flat.. a home that always gives me comfort, shelter and happiness even on gloomy weather and bad days.

I love chess! 

My Lazy Couch!

As a student, I hardly cook proper meals so oven was definitely my bestfriend in the kitchen

The view from my room, at least during the summer.

This was taken during winter. It was foggy but yet so beautiful.

 During winter

So serene

Where I normally have my hot bubble bath

I am so lucky to be able to see beautiful green trees from my bedroom windows

A beautiful scene from the 7th floor

Bed v Rocking Chair? Rocking Chair!!!! 

I will definitely miss this home so much!
