A Long Overdue Post… Updates, Updates, Updates…


I am really not being “on the ball” with this blogging thing huh…

So much for documenting my adventures… I guess I am starting to realise another reason why my first blog is now, defunct. Not just that I was afraid of prospective employers judging me through my juvenile postings, but also because I never found time to sit down and properly pen down posts.

Hahahahahaha… So I guess, let me just list the adventures I had since this blog started, and strike off the mad overdued posts as I blog about them. I might blog about them not in the order listed as some are more picture heavy and others are more words heavy  (if that makes any sort of sense)

Anyhoos so I owe you guys:

Adventure Posts –

Turkey Trip with my Girls

Milan Trip with my Girls

KL Trip with my main Beetch (We met the brothers for dinner, there, high flyers dinnering in KayElle and shit…)

Creative Writing Posts –

A short I am currently working on from my Phone

A prose I am attempting about daily commute (I know right! How much more boring can I become!)


Wow!!! I have my work cut out for me.

Anybody out there knows how I can upload MULTIPLE images onto WordPress, at one time? As opposed to uploading one at a time?

Honestly, with my trigger happy fingers, I am always snapping away at the randomest shit but I hate that I have to upload it one at a time! And, I think I have typed “one”, “at”, and “time”, too often in the last two paragraphs!

Maybe I should not have jumped too eagerly on the WordPress bandwagon? Hehehehehehehe I remember blogger used to allow me to upload multiple pictures in one go, then all I had to do was wait for it to be embedded on the blogpost and then type out the contents.

I really don’t know. I wish I could just be writing here, all day err day but I obviously can’t. Actually, it is sort of therapeutic to be typing without a direction. It’s been awhile since I allowed myself to rant. Ahhhhhh I don’t know…

Anyhoos, do follow me on instagram @shahnazt if you would like to see my day to day adventures, live! 

Till then, it’s ADVENTURE TIME! =D



Alright then,

So much for keeping up to date with the blog.

You know what I need?

I need a device or app or something that transforms my thoughts into a blog post. While I am in the middle of something exciting, I always have this blog “post” slowly constructing in my head.

It usually sounds like an exciting post and then when it is time I pen the thoughts down, it doesn’t sound as exciting as it should be. Bummer.

Yes, I should have a pen and paper with me at all times, BUT when I am living the moment, it seems a bit “bleargh” if I were to stop doing what I was doing, to pen down my thoughts. Plus, my memory is not as amazing as it should be. Argh!

9289067-brain-explosionSo, I was introduced to an app called Day.re. It is amazing, most definitely. My gripe with it is that it is only available on mobile and I hate typing long texts on mobile. I love the clickey clackety sound my keyboard makes as words slowly form on my screen. Mobile just does not cut it for a writer, I suppose (pretentious, much?).


That, is also the problem I have with the WordPress app. I downloaded it with high hopes of constantly updating my blog, with the many adventures (big and small) that I have. But, again, the thought of penning down a post on mobile just turns me off.

I do not really have a laptop or PC at home. I am always either using my phone, my tablet or ipad, and in some more lazy situations, I am on my TV. Yeap, I surf the web, sometimes, with my TV. So, that is why it is harder to actually motivate me to write a blog post.

My laptop (Mr Ace R. Maze) died on me yonks ago and I haven’t really the time to send him off to be revived. He was my most trusted writing partner and I did not get to transfer most of my writing that are still left in him, only managed to transfer a few to the external hard drive. Which! Also, has been giving me problems of late. Damn technology, sometimes.

So, I actually need to move around my wish list a little bit. First off, get a damn PC or laptop (the TV was a buy that was meant to replace the need for a laptop/PC, which I did not think through, fully!). Wasn’t a cheap buy either! So a computer of sorts first (or fix Mr Ace R. Maze, whichever is friendlier on the wallet), then only can I think about getting my (D)SLR camera. Haizzzzzz… Been wanting an SLR for the longest time now, but I guess I have to prioritise my needs.

Well, look at me ranting. If I put in half this much effort to rant, you would think I could put in just as much (maybe a little more) to write a proper post. Especially since, I just came back on an adventure in Mystical Turkey (Türkiye) and a short little one in Fashionable Milan.


Istanbul, Turkey


Milan, Italy

Do not even get me started on my lazy-ness at completing the Daily Post Challenge. That was a short lived dream, to say the least (if you count 3 posts as something even remotely considered as reaching a goal).

Alright then, I think I better stop it here. But, I will stop with a promise that, the blog post on my first day in Turkey will be up soon-ish.

If I can get on my WordPress! It’s been so long that I can’t seem to remember my log in details! Oh, I type my posts first on Microsoft Word before publishing it on WordPress (irrelevant information, really!).

Okies, finally in! Looking forward to penning down my “First Day in Turkey” post!

Till then, Happy Adventuring!
