Day 12/100, Season 2 - Resolving to carry the sunshine throughout the week


• We woke up this afternoon and talked about things in a very calm way. He was still incredibly angry with me for no real reason other than the fact that he wanted to be. We ended up spending the rest of the day together outside since it was boiling hot. We got a couple of sandwiches and ate at the waterfront in front of his place and took a long walk, had snow cones and iced tea to cool us down, relaxed back at his place for another half an hour and I then headed… Continue

I took the border route with teh shortest wait time though and the remainder of my journey was pleasant. - I am grateful for my wonderful family and that they live close… Continue

Day 10/100, Season 2 - Small incidents that shift energy

Hi Friends. I've had a pretty rough week.

Day 9/100, Season 2 - Familia


• I was woken up in the most wonderful way at 7:30am this morning when my adorable niece and nephew bombarded the room I'm staying in to tell me it was time to get up and hug me and kiss me. I did my work, while spending some time with them in between and went with my Dad in the afternoon to check some furniture shops. We had some success with that and got some Thai takeout on the way home. My sister's neighbours and her husband's cousin's family all dropped in so we… Continue

Day 6/100, Season 2 - Pilates expenses and work stress


• The Universe delivered again today! I signed up for 3 weekly pilates group classes for next month at the gym and realized it cost me $375 total, which is a lot for just a month of classes and began to wonder how I can cut that cost while maintaining my pilates exercise. I came home and them selling this home pilates equipment on QVC which I saw them selling once before but didn't buy and then regretted and I ordered it. It costs the same as one month of pilates… Continue

Day 5/100, Season 2 - Enjoying my own company


• I woke up around 10:45 this morning and turned the volume on my mobile on when I awoke as I'd turned it off last night so I wouldn't be woken by it. Its funny because no one had called while I was asleep but just after I turned the volume on, I started receiving calls. The first was from "him" asking if I wanted to hang out in the evening - he had a few things to do during the day with some friends. I told him to call me when he was done with his stuff and we could… Continue

Day 97/100, Season 1 - Beach time..

On to day 97 now!


• I had a pleasant taxi ride from the hotel to the resort today and it wasn't too expensive for the distance it actually covered.

My room has a lovely waterfront view and I took a quick nap before heading to the pool and beach.After relaxing… Continue

Hello Co-creators! I'm afraid I didn't blog for 3 nights and I'm closing in on the final day of the season, so here I go to make up for all 3 days...Here's day 96:

I woke up and got a bit of work done before heading to the bus station to catch a bus to a town called Teluk Intan where I am spending the night after meeting with another manufacturer.

Oh, and ate lots of food too, but I don't feel guilty since it wasn't too unhealthy and I'm sure I walked it all off! I got some great deals, including a couple of buddha wooden wall hangings that were remarkably cheap! Oh, and yes, I do love Kuala… Continue
