I left Swan City at the break of dawn on a rainy morning, and arrived in KL on a bright sunny day.

Bee picked me up from the airport, and we were supposed to quickly drop the luggages at home before going out for breakfast.

But as usual, we got lazy as soon as we laid ourselves down on the bed and decided to take a nap instead.

And an usual, we slept past the alarm clock and I nearly missed my facial appointment with Leonard Drake!

Nearly, I said. My skin was in desperate need of some TLC, and I was determined to get to that appointment even if it means skipping lunch.

The facial was alright, though nothing to shout about. :|

To be honest, I'm getting rather bored with Leonard Drake and Aster Spring. Their service hasn't been consistent, or in my opinion, it's even been going downhill a little in the past few years. So if anyone has recommendations of a good skin care center in Klang Valley, please leave a comment or email me privately. :)

Watched Unstoppable with Bee after my facial because it was the only decent movie that was showing besides Harry Potter.

By the time we were seated, I was so hungry that I practically spent the first 30 minutes of the movie stuffing my face silly with chicken nuggets and washing them down with Coke. I was never a fan of chicken nuggets but surprisingly, these were actually quite tasty. Or perhaps I was just starving after not eating for the whole day. :p

The movie turned out to be rather enjoyable, despite being a little slow at the start. Well, at least my husband didn't fall asleep halfway through, as he does with most movies, so I guess that's a good sign.

We concluded the night with a Taiwanese fusion dinner and a very sweet pep talk from Bee about thanksgiving.

He's right. Humans often take things for granted and forgot to count our blessings in life. Instead of appreciating things that we have, we so easily stop being grateful and focus on things we don't have.

"So often we dwell on the things that seem impossible rather than on the things that are possible. So often we are depressed by what remains to be done and forget to be thankful for all that has been done." ~ Marian Wright Edelman

God knows it's a form of art I have mastered!

But hopefully, I can start to change that.

Hopefully, I can learn that I (or things) don't always have be perfect and I can stop being so harsh on myself. Or everyone else, for that matter.

Hopefully, I can start to learn to let go.

One step at a time.

And I'm thankful I have someone who is willing to walk this path hand in hand with me, and ready to catch me if I fall.

I'm thankful that I have you, baby.
