Back to school.

Last Wednesday was my first day back to school for 2017.
It was great? Considering that I had a nice one week new year/xmas break to refresh my brain and system so yeah, it felt great to be back in school.

I think I look good in this picture I posted it everywhere 😋

Looking back at the unfiltered uneditted picture, my skin does look better now eh?
I am still struggling with my super sensitive skin but right now, I am really particular with my diet and environment (no smoking near me please!) so everything is under control.
Lets hope I don't jinx it lah 🙁
I have come to term that I would never have a flawless skin and this is the best that it could ever get so yeay us especially my mom and my aunts (it takes a team to get me to this point, I kid you not) 👏👏👏

On the way home from class, I realised that the sun was finally out from hiding and the ground was not slippery so I decided to bundle up and go for a little run in Vorobyovy Gory.

I finally got my first run of the year and it felt amazing and so so refreshing.
Call me crazy but running is one of my ways to unwind and relax my mind, going back to school after a pretty long break made me anxious so I needed that run. ☺

Second day back to school was horrible, I was asked to leave the lecture because according to my lecturer, I was "talking non-stop for an hour" wtf so I left and didn't go for the class afterwards (we have classes after lectures) .
I have to attend extra class for that missed class and I may be in for a big trouble but going home and straight away crashed dead on my bed for a solid 10 hours made me feel much much better so it was cool.
I think... 
I will cross the bridge once I get there 😑

Random act of kindness.

The temperature dropped drastically over the weekend (it went as low as -35°C) so we decided to just stay in and assuming that everyone is thinking of the same thing, we thought today is the perfect day to finnnnallllyyyyy give our neighbours the boxes of chocolate we bought for them as new year/xmas gifts.

We are not close to any of our neighbours but we do know two of them.
One is a grandma who used to live with her paralysed (how we found out about this is a long story) husband until he passed away about a couple of months ago. We are assuming she is living alone now we never her anyone else visiting her and we always see her going in and out on her own. And she reminds us of our grandmothers because she fusses over us whenever she sees us.👵

The second one is a family who moved to Moscow because their sons are attending med school in the city. Not the same one like us but the mother is so proud and happy once she found out that we are in med school too. The mother reminds us of our mother, we always see her cleaning the corridor area and she refuses our offers to help her so yeah.

We are not close to the third one so whatever.

Anyway, we gave the chocolates they were happy, they said thank you etc so we thought the story ends there.
BUT GUESS WHAT, about an hour later, the grandma rang our doorbell and brought us a freshly baked cake! 😢

Like the cake was still hot! She did cry a little when we gave her the chocolates and she told us she feels bad she didn't have anything to give to us but we told her it is okay.
Oh bless her soul.

The cake really made our night. I guess we made her day too hence why she baked us the cake.
She didn't have to do that but she did and we were caught off guard.
We honestly were not expecting that.

It feels really good to be good to people, eh? My heart swells with happiness. 💖

A fresh new start.


Happy new year, 😘
2017 is the year I am going to start updating my blog... weekly? Yeah lets do weekly update 😎
It has been years since the last time I update anything here so I am pretty excited to write again.

Nothing major happened, I am still living in Moscow.
Loving Moscow more and more each day. Actually I got a little bit nostalgic today once I realized I will be leaving Moscow for good next year hence why I decided to write again.
I want to share my last days in Moscow and of course, to show the world what an amazing place Moscow is.
It definitely has improved a lot since the first day I came here in 2009. I have been living here for almost 8 years and still loving it, that tells something right 😉
I still remember struggling during my early days here whats with the language barrier and difference in culture and such but once I got a grip on how the system works here, everything started falling into place smoothly.

In the past years, I have learned and earned a huge amount of appreciation and passion towards Russian history and arts which eventually lead me to fall even more deeply with this place.

I will do weekly update on my daily activities and I will fill the inbetween gap time with my throwback stories.
Get ready to fall in love with this city 😏
