Sunday musings =)

Sanrio Chinese new year

Happy Chinese New Year from the Sanrio gang 2011


I love the 7th day of the week. It’s the day where everything seems to slow down. Where we can take the time to stop running and actually start living. To appreciate the beauty around us, bond with family/friends/significant others and where there’s no such thing as an agenda ;). For me Sunday’s are the best days to recuperate and chillax before the crazy relentless week reboots all over again! A time of reflection of what the week has been and what will be…

It’s Happy Chinese New Year tomorrow! =) Tada. And the year of the monkey eh? I actually can hear fireworks from my bedroom right now as I’m writing this post! What are the chances? Chinese New Year celebrations come with loads of traditions from lion dancing parades with fire crackers to interesting and quirky superstitions. My personal favourite is no cleaning on New Year’s Day cause you’ll be sweeping your year’s luck away! Now that’s the best unique excuse get out of chores πŸ˜‰ And of course the red pocket money from parents, aunties and uncles (only those who are married have the right to bestow them!) to wish all the kids/teens/young adults good luck! Yay for kids but nay for parents cause they have to fork out equal amounts for the giver’s kids πŸ˜‰

In other news, you may have noticed some minor changes to the home page! Spent yesterday working behind the scenes to make unibookworm even better πŸ˜‰ Unibookworm is now officially on Instagram! Β Featured in the right side as uppage Insta, readers can now save their favourite quotes of the daily uppage corner all in one place πŸ˜‰ thanks to Seeds4Life to inspire this new change. (They’re another awesome blog completely dedicated to daily mugs of uppage =)

The other major news is that I’ve published my first official ever Wattpad book! =) (online free book publishing website community). So excited!


Story of TTT

My first official ever Wattpad story =)


*Have also added this on the widgets side for super easy access to the book wherever you are on my blog! πŸ˜‰

As of yesterday, I’ve published the offical synopsis and chapter 1 πŸ˜‰ woohoo! I must say, it’s been amazing to reconnect with my imaginative roots (thank you NY resolutions!)

Official synopsis:

This isn’t your typical story of boy meets girl, becomes best friends and then falls in love after many obstacles.

If that’s the book that you’re looking for, this isn’t the one πŸ˜‰ This is a story of the beautiful beginnings in finding an unexpected best friend and what to do when it starts to borderline fragility. And how in the midst of it all, you find yourself and become stronger than ever when you realise what you want and actually need.

Meet Summer Will, 17- brunette hair, blue- green eyes, Madam Secretary glasses and recent graduate of high school. Summer is one of those, what you call amazingly rare people. Kind and caring, she has the rare ability to make anyone feel special. Regardless of where they’ve been and what they’ve done. Her only flaw may only be that she always believes the best of people and is hopelessly optimistic.

Enter Winston ‘Wally’ Goode- 22, brown hair, hazel brown and squared framed glasses. Kind of a Where’s Wally/Waldo look a like, earning him the nickname Wally. He’s a long time friend of the Wills, seeing how he’s best friends with Elliot (Summer’s brother) and best known for his comedian antics at the best and worst of times πŸ˜‰

Even though Summer has known him since she was 15, they never really talked much until now. It all changed in one magical night when the TTT (Tennis Tower Texts) started and they haven’t stopped talking since =)

But with her Romania plans to volunteer with orphaned children for a year and his relentless job hunt back in the New York- will their magical connection even last?

Or will it all just free fall into unimaginable fractured pieces that turns into a tragedy before they can even realize that they can be more than best friends?

Like it? Feel free to check it out on Wattpad (you’ll need to sign up for a free account first) to follow the story! πŸ˜‰ with 20 chapters planned in the works, I’ll be aiming to finish it before my 22nd birthday! πŸ˜‰

Closing up this week…

Songs of the day! πŸ˜‰

Charlie Puth and Selena Gomez’s We Don’t Talk Anymore catchy tune got released! (Finally!) I can’t stop listening to them croon – we don’t talk anymore, we don’t talk anymore like we used to. Their voices together create the perfect melody. πŸ˜‰ No surprise that Charlie is the one to watch, having already collaborated with Selena and Meghan Trainor!


And rediscovery of epic One Republic uppage songs – Ryan Tedder always had a way to create lyrics that you can never get out of your head while feeling inspired. So no surprise, that they make up my quotes of the day!
