I WENT AWAY FOR 6 DAYS & THESE HAPPENED

I miss you, listers! 😘
  1. β€’
    Became a slug over the Chinese New Year weekend
    Happy year of the Monkey, everyone! πŸ’ Here's wishing you a year of great health and prosperity! I, er, basically ate, slept, swam at the beach and lounged at my parents'.

    Listened to Serial Season 1 and got hooked
    I'm so into podcasts now. I've downloaded all eps of Criminal, and subscribed to Freakonomics, Lore, Invisibilia and others. Gimme gimme gimme recs, please (this puts a dent in my reading habit though πŸ˜–)

    Dropped my mic at my colleagues
    We were talking about the only Empress of China, Wu Zetian (we were at lunch, she was badass, read more here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wu_Zetian). Her son eventually removed her from history and decreed that future emperors must only be male. My colleagues argued that she got ambitious but I countered that if some man did the same as she did, they would not call him ambitious, just a great leader. And having this 'no girls allowed' rule, only men would think this. Again! *mic is dropped*

    Was bashful. Yup, that's the word
    I gave my neighbors pineapple tarts before I left for the parents. And they gave me back goodies when I returned! I received mandarin oranges and Ferrero Rocher chocolates! I love my neighbors but yeah, I wasn't expecting that ☺️
  5. β€’
    My goodest friend got offered a job and she accepted it
    And it's the one that created for herself! That's my girl πŸ’ͺ🏼

    And then there are GIFs
    The blinking teeny GIF banners are freaking me out. Like, quit flashing me for your attention!

    Share with me your lists
    I'm missing out some important ones, I think. Also, does the app freezes out on you sometimes? Or at least once a day? Just me?
