I hate airport goodbyes. (Mostly because you have to face the custom officers afterwards with red eyes and nose from crying.)

But today is day 1 of 84 without you. With the family moving houses and whatsnot, I think I’ll have tons of things to do which is good and honestly, it’s not too bad after the initial goodbye. I still get to talk to you everyday, and I get to spend time with friends and family.

Maybe not so much for you, facing an empty apartment. Sorry my love, next time, I’ll book a shorter trip or you could come with me when your work permits.

The day after the wedding, we woke up bright and early (much to my dismay due to the late night), got ready to leave for breakfast, only to discover that the car battery is flat.

Le bf had jumper leads so he managed to get help from someone at the hotel. Deciding to give a chance for the battery to charge, we drove to Hunter Valley for breakfast instead of having it nearby. Found a nice place, parked, spent about an hour there, paid, went back to the car, and… battery flat AGAIN.

Now this is a memorable one.

Wedding was held around Newy, so we drove up, checked into the a hotel, got changed and, I put on my face, tamed my hair, stuffed my feet into torture devices… you know the drill.

The ceremony starts at 4pm followed by reception, we got there at about 3.30pm and, temperature was about 37 degrees. Since we didn’t know the people who were there, we hid in the car with the air conditioner on full blast till we spotted someone we knew.

Now, the wedding was held in an old water works, basically a historical building and, it looked amazing. Had a rustic feel to it with candles and fairy lights, nice dried gum tree leaves on stem scattered around candles on the tables, the vibe was amazing, the whole place basically looked good! Problem was, it didn’t have air conditioning, and they couldn’t turn on the fans because it was really loud. The ceremony was supposed to be held outside in this big open field with beautiful trees lining around but to was too warm to stay outside.

Long story short, I almost fainted at the worst time possible.

I just realised before I fully utilised wordpress, I uploaded my images onto photobucket which means, after their bullshit move, I am left with a good chunk of broken images. @!#$

Sigh. I lost the original images because I had reset laptop to factory settings plus, I didn’t back them up… Suppose I’ll need to hunt them down on photobucket, look through all my posts, re-upload them to wordpress, and edit the posts. #Ain’tNobodyGotTimeForThatShit

I woke up this morning to the bf saying there’s good news and bad news.

Turns out, the first orchid he bought for me isn’t doing so well. For the past few days, I’ve been looking at it, wondering why this particular bud wasn’t blooming. The moss was wet so maybe too much sun is making it sad? The bottom (bigger) leaves have been droopy for a while and I kept thinking they were gonna fall out since new ones were growing.

New growth doesn’t really scream sad plant, does it?

Anyway, he took the orchid out of its pot and behold, 80% of its roots were rotted/rotting, some just crumbled and fell off. There was even mould growing at the bottom! Due to the lack of roots taking up water, it explains why the moss remained wet with minimal watering.
