DAYRE & Wanderlust

I've been posting frequent updates about my day on DAYRE for the past few days! http://dayre.me/estherxie

It's like blogging except that instead of updating many days after, I post on the spot using my mobile! I find it really useful because usually I forget many details by the time I sit down infront of my computer after a fun day. I feel that it is kinda like my old blogging style because a few years ago I used to post a few updates in a day whenever I have any thoughts.

You know, when I first wanted to download this app after seeing many other bloggers signing up, I wasn't able to because the app requires at least iOS 6 but I'm still at iOS 5! So i went to download iTunes, learnt to backup and attempted to update but couldn't because I didn't have enough space! Finally spent a day deleting over a thousand photos and managed to update to iOS 7. Luckily, I'm still fast enough and the username "estherxie" is still available. Awesome!

I've been very hooked to the app too! Do download and follow me! My username is ESTHERXIE. See you there!

Last week, my company had a BBQ night at our carpark. Was super looking forward to it cos I loveeeeee BBQ food! My must-order includes chicken wings, sambal stingray, sambal sotong, hotdogs and satay!

The theme was Beachwear. Wore a lace top and denim shorts with a netted cardigan over. As soon as we were starting the fire, I had to abandon my cardigan cos it was so hot! Anyway, I realize that my new cam is only good for taking selfies. Photo doesn't look very good for OOTDs! Am gonna wear the exact same outfit set out again so that I can take a better photo with bf's camera!

Earlier that day I lugged back 100 of these fruit tarts from the bakery opposite. Thought it would be quite light since they are so mini, but put them together and they are really heavy!

Recently while reading other blogs, I felt so much wanderlust! Everyday I'm dreaming about the day I can finally go on frequent trips... Like, once every month for the whole year. Doesn't matter if it's just short weekend getaway on a resort island nearby!

I have been actively researching for cheap staycations/ getaways these few weeks. So much that I feel that my life is extremely blah and boring. I go to work, go home, watch Kang Xi Lai Le, read about other people's amazing lives on their blogs/instagram, feel sad, research for exciting things to do, halfheartedly blog something, play some hp games, sleep, and then the cycle repeats.

The other day, I researched the term Wanderlust.

What it says on wikipedia:

Wanderlust is a strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world.

Wanderlust may be driven by the desire to escape and leave behind depressive feelings of guilt, and has been linked to bipolar disorder in the periodicity of the attacks.

In adolescence, dissatisfaction with the restrictions of home and locality may also fuel the desire to travel.
In my case, I think following certain people on instagram and their blogs fueled my wanderlust.
