Fishes & Trees

So, I went to Aquaria KLCC with some college friends on Wednesday. It was a highly anticipated trip (for me, at least) and the day started with us taking the train downtown to meet with the rest. Grabbed lunch, caught up with each other and stepped into the aquarium!

Note: I didn’t take as much good quality photos as I would’ve liked, but oh well. 

No, the fishes on top aren’t dead. 

For some reason, fishes fascinate and terrify me. They seem so… distant compared to cats and dogs in an emotional sense. You can guess if a dog was happy, angry or sad but a fish? Still possible, but much harder. I’m sure fish enthusiasts would disagree, however! Loved the fishes and other aquatic animals, though I wished there were more interactive exhibits. Hoped the others enjoyed it as well! 



After the glorious fishes, we visited the park outside of KLCC and it was beautiful. The weather was just right for a stroll and we thoroughly enjoyed our ice cream in the midst of the greenery 🙂


We caught the train back during rush hour and by then, the adrenaline (or excitement) was ebbing away. Standing in a packed train when you’re tired isn’t the nicest thing (leg muscles, where art thou?). However, we all made it back in one piece & savored a beautiful sunset on the way home. 


I promise that I will try my best to capture more memories in photographs next time! Always something that takes time getting used to, but it’s worth it.

Till we meet again,

Books I’ve Read

Hey hey! Here’s some of the books I’ve read since my A-Levels exam ended. 

Pretties by Scott Westerfield


I’ve read Uglies (the first book in this series, Pretties is the second) a long, long time ago, and I was very excited to read the continuation of the story. However, the time gap between my reading of Uglies and Pretties was too big; hence my hype for it was dimmed. Still, it was a good read with the plot twisting with every turn of the page. Get all the books in this series and read ’em all at one go! I’m sure you’ll be left feeling as breathless as I did when I finished the Divergent series (don’t ask, I still feel the need to visit online support groups after Allegiant).

Confessions of A Murder Suspect by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro


I actually read Confessions: The Private School Murders which was the book written after this. I didn’t know that then, but after reading The Private School Murders, I knew that I had to get the prequel. James Patterson’s style of writing just hooks you in from the very first page, and I thoroughly enjoyed the fast paced, contemporary beat of it. Highly recommend these two!

Indelible by Karin Slaughter


I was reading this during my free time at my part-time job and someone I knew came up to me. He glanced at the cover and said, “Wow. Slaughter, huh? What a morbid title.”

Back to the book, I picked up another work of Karin’s as I’ve read Genesis, and though it was thoroughly disturbing, it was intriguing and compelling to read. Indelible wasn’t as graphic (or at least that’s how I felt) but it did the job for a crime story. The difference in POVs was a little confusing at first, as there were details from both time periods that needed to be paid attention to; but the mystery was cleared up soon after.

The Two Lives of Miss Charlotte Merryweather by Alexandra Potter


What can I say? It was pretty decent for a contemporary chick-lit read. Light-hearted with sprinkles of romance and self-discovery, this book was a good one to unwind and relax with.

That’s as much as I can update for now. Going to catch up on my Once Upon A Time marathon!
