Carpe diem!

I got very busy lately and wasn’t in the mood to update my blog but tonight even if I am a bit tired, I decide to write.

These days, I am in my baking mode, cake decorating to be specific. I enrolled myself in Advanced Cake Decorating course I’ve taken about 5 years ago. It’s a refresher course so to speak. My half-day classes twice a week consume my days-off. And when I am online, I always browse sites where I’ll get ideas of cake and cupcake decorations.

Anyway, that is not what I want to talk about.

After my class a while ago, I decided to go to the mall to meet my sister and watch Transformers 2. However, she called-off the movie date. Nonetheless, since my mind is set to view the film, I pushed through with the plan and watched it by myself.

It has been years since I last went to a cinema alone to see a movie and thought I would never do it again. The feeling I had was still the same as the 1st time I did it. I felt so independent though at the back of my mind I was conscious of what those who see me were thinking (as if they care and they indeed notice me, huh…LOL).

Now that my sisters and most friends are far from home, are married or in a relationship, I know I will be watching alone again as long as I fancy a movie. Chances of having them spend a few hours with me in a movie house is slim when they can watch movies with their husbands or boyfriends.

Don’t get me wrong. I am not a loner, but at times, it’s fun to be alone for you to tend to enjoy your own company. It’s one thing I don’t mind being with over and over again. And one day, my dream of traveling alone and exploring another place will happen as well for I know I’ll discover more of myself in such situation.

I would just have to say then – CARPE DIEM!
