The moment sem break ended, I had an asthma attack and am still feeling sort of bleh until today. I celebrated my two week anniversary with my asthma two days ago. Funny how my asthma stuck to me longer than most relationships.

I'm still feeling bad, so I decided what better way to make myself feel better than to dress up? I brought out the bandeau top my aunt gave me a week before, found interest on my mom's kimono jacket, and of course, my oh-so-favorite shorts, and an outfit is made!

Wow, it's been over a YEAR since I last posted and saw this blog! This time, I promise to post regularly.

Now, what has happened to Issa during the past year?

For starters, I'm in college! Yes, I'm finally in college, suffering enjoying my second semester as a freshman. My course? Accountancy. Wish me luck! I'm also now part of our campus publication as layout artist, and part of Lifebox, a life group that devotes their time to helping students become leaders through the guidance of God (Can you believe it?!).

Second, I lost almost 50 pounds since the last time I posted. WHEEEEE this is what makes me super happy! Sooner or later, I'll create a post about my weight loss journey and how I did it. In the meantime, you can check my Tumblr a.k.a. fitblr for my personal posts and stats.

Just to compare: The day I last posted (PROM March 17, 2013!) to October 21, 2014.
A year and a half difference. ;-)


I was actually planning to create a new blog and start all over again, but then I figured I've got a perfectly great blog here, why not just re-re-revive it? Re-re-revive it since I've been on at least a thousand hiatuses...
ANYWAY I just wanted to brag and show you my photos from prom! Didn't really feel like prom though, I was more interested in the buffet. I was actually forced to go, since my mom kept blabbing how it was "a once in a lifetime opportunity!". I've still got next year?! And plus, it was graded, so might as well...
But look how pretty my friends looked! Aren't they pretty HUH HUH HUH?
But honestly, I felt like a 20 year old wallflower, since a lot of them look like they're 14 or something, don't you think? (I don't mean it as an insult, though! Isn't looking young the best?) 


Well, it's been how many months since I last posted, and I've been itching to post, if only terrible bouts of laziness would disappear. But I can't believe it's been two whole months! Sorry blog, sorry bloggers, sorry me. I'll try my best to start posting more and more soon!
I've been meaning to post since Monday, but my mum and I got into a messy fight and it ended up with my laptop in shambles and my hard drive gone. (bye bye photos and all!)
Really hated what happened because everything I saved, all the memories made in the past two years, gone in a smash.
But the best part is that I got a new Macbook because of it! Mum felt guilty so she bought me a Macbook as a replacement. (Though nothing can replace my trusty old notebook!)
my face looks huge there but heeeey
I swear, more food reviews, personal opinions and fashion thingies and DIY's and all that! Promise!


Sorry for disappearing for two months, I'm not dead!


Did I ever mention that my iPhone's gone?
I sold it for a Samsung and now I'm regretting it. My sister keeps teasing me with her iPhone and asking me, "WHERE'S YOURS HUH?"
I haven't found the perfect phone yet, but fingers crossed, I will!
So I'm just wondering what all your phones are and if you'd change it for something else? :-)
I know this isn't even remotely related to phones and such, but I just realized that my cats are more photogenic than I am...


It's time to bury my camera in my garden.
Actually, maybe just the lens. I use an 18-55mm lens and just a few weeks back, it's been starting to fail me with its frequent ERROR 99 messages, usually when the aperture is above 6.3! I've tried every solution found on the net but to no avail. My cousin solved the problem by cleaning the lens' contacts, but it solved the problem temporarily, and now I'm pretty bummed out by the fact that I have no choice but to throw it away or sell it for parts.
