pieces of peace

The silly me just realised that Elyn had passed me a Peace award! Thank you, dearie🙂

And since the chocolate fix I badly needed this weekend in the form of a to-die-for brownie ended up burnt because I was busy doing other chores around the house, I have no photos of a black baking tin to share.

But I’m not about to cry over burnt brownies.

And so, in typical The Sound of Music fashion, I simply remember my favourite things. Or more aptly [and in light of the award], snapshots that bring peace to me.

  1. taken during a blackout the night before an exam in my final semester
  2. the graduation bouquet from the mister
  3. a lonely chair off Desaru, facing the South China Sea
  4. Shangri-La Resort in Sabah
  5. somewhere along the suspended bridge amidst a Sabah jungle (I was screaming while taking this [read: fear of heights])
  6. the final morning at Desaru; the sea reaching high tide

    happygrub: I stayed in Kota Kinabalu at Shangri_La Rasa Ria Resort. You should check it out; they’ve got their own nature reserve at the back where you can go on a trail and see orang-utans in the ‘wild’😛

    I am absolutely the sort of person to cry over burnt brownies (I have such a weakness for them XD) but these photographs are so ridiculously beautiful that you’ve managed to distract me. I’m so in awe…!
