Camels and Tethering Tourists

6 days ago, for day 285 by cat ✨

My friends are giving me a hard time right now. I remembered my writing deadline and so I had asked to tether from one of them. So here so I am. We're in the middle of the desert and doing some touristy things like camel hunting, visiting ghost towns and...

Bangkok Blues

1 week ago, for day 281 by cat ✨

I'm in Bangkok for a two-hour stop over. Please indulge me for a moment but the last time I was here, I was parting ways with my last long-term partner. Ed, who is Latvian, but lived in London had flown out to my side of the world to meet me...

Downton Abbey

3 weeks ago, for day 269 by cat ✨

Is it just my group of friends and I ? But we love attempting to speak with a British accent. Our favourite is the posh classy boarding school one. The Queen's English. This obsession goes way back to high school, when we were such geeks over Harry Potter. I think...

Dharma not Drama

3 weeks ago, for day 266 by cat ✨

That Peach Scone track is still on repeat this morning as I type this. It may seem I have a goal of memorising it, which is so much harder to do when this kind of effort has stopped being a habit. The Lost Art of Memorisation and Remembering. The reason...

RIP Daniel Johnston

4 weeks ago, for day 264 by cat ✨

Fan-girling all over Midsommar director, Ari Aster's Twitter led me to learn of Daniel Johnston's passing. I'm only now absorbing this piece of news. One thing I feel especially lucky about is how former loves have really opened my world to the discovery of things. Of new music, authors, works...

Contains spoilers to the film "Midsommer" In college, the only organisation I committed to being a part of was the Loyola Film Circle (LFC), an organisation for film geeks and nerds. Two people I knew from that that organisation moved out here to Singapore a couple...

True Sorrows

1 month ago, for day 262 by cat ✨

"I know it's just a book. but it's a damned good book," I shared in a chat with two really close friends last night. I used to have such a hard time needing people, but these past few years I've been so conscious of my feelings that I can gauge...

Little Joys

1 month ago, for day 261 by cat ✨

I'm listening to that band Little Joy as I write this. The one with Fabrizio of The Strokes. The song that comes on is "The Next Time Around" that goes: *One too many goals The measure of your worth Can sink your weight in gold Sat by the ivory sill...

You've Got Mail

1 month ago, for day 260 by cat ✨

Things that are dead or dying that I'm still a sucker for: Hand-written letters Long e-mails Looking at the whole picture Diaries Conversations with strangers Honouring things at face value I re-watched "You've Got Mail" a couple of days ago. Nora Ephron's writing is...

A Save Point

1 month ago, for day 259 by cat ✨

I'm happy about the progress I've made with my freelancing work. I've got a rhythm lately. It's a little bit backward of me to come to this realisation now (two months in), especially because I read about habits and productivity all the time — but when I went "rogue" and...
