Settling Into a Routine

I’m the kind of person that functions best with a routine. It seems that I’m building up a new routine with making coffee for Rui Rui and myself being the first thing I do in the morning. I’m more of a tea drinker if anything. My peasant’s tongue can’t tell the subtlety of the various […]

Picking Up Cooking

Day 4. I’ve decided to learn how to cook. Personally, I don’t feel that cooking is difficult. I can understand the general concept of basic cooking, now it’s just a matter of putting in the time practising. Throughout this afternoon, I’ve spent a good amount of time searching for simple recipes online, collecting those that […]

New Adventure! Day 3

Good morning. It’s 8:46am and my pot of coffee is brewing on the stove at the moment. That will be the first time I’ve ever made coffee in a Moka pot in my life. I wasn’t much of a coffee drinker back home, but since Rui Rui is an avid coffee lover, I thought I […]

A Brand New Adventure! Day 0.

This is it. Just finished packing all my stuff. I’ll be flying off tonight at 2230hrs. Woke up earlier than usual this morning, and after a quick visit to my dear mom, I went to the usual cafe to have my usual tea and toast breakfast. It didn’t feel quite the same. Since I’ve a […]

15th Sept 2022 – An Update

Quit the job 2 days back. It’s been a short, 4 months with the company. Days went by relatively uneventful, still, I’m glad to at least have a place to be and things to do to pass all that time. Two weeks before I leave for London. This is the time for me to meet […]

16th August 2022 – An Update

After 6 months of waiting, I’ve finally received my visa. Took the day off to collect my passport yesterday, but I wasn’t expecting to receive it though, since RuiRui was telling me I’m supposed to receive a letter which states whether or not my visa has been approved or not and I haven’t receive such […]

04th Aug 2022 – An Update

UK Decision Making Centre contacted me recently, in regards to my VISA application. They wanted me to send some documents and future proof of my relationship with RuiRui. That’s good since that means that they’ve received my application and it’s currently in consideration. I spent a good part of last week consolidating several selected pictures […]

06th June 2022 – An Update

How’s it hanging? Since 18th April, I’ve managed to find myself something (a job) to keep myself busy as I continue my seemingly endless wait for my VISA approval. It’s not too bad, this current arrangement. I stay busy, my mind stimulated and I get paid for my time. On top of that, it’s a […]

07th April 2022 – A Rant and Update

Sup? These days are testing times for me, mentally. I would love to talk about it but there’s only so much I can talk to my friends or loved ones without sounding like a broken recorder and I also understand that there’s really nothing much they can do for me except to listen or spend […]

25th Feb 2022 – An Update

At the moment, I’m waiting for my UK Spouse Visa to be approved. The gentleman, who assisted me in processing my application, informed me that I’ve got to wait “60 working days” for the result. The husband of a good friend of RUI RUI was in the same situation as me, a few years back […]
