The Walking Dead!

Yes! I am a fan! A HUGE fan! I cannot get enough of it. I know its the most watched series in the world at the moment and I'm jumping on the band wagon because of that. Well, I'm taking my love for it to the next level. I'm going to start collecting the graphic novels next. I know its not the kind of literature that I'm quite used to but I want to venture out of my bubble. The book below is a compilation of 48 issues and it costs RM204 with some change in Kinokuniya. Its much cheaper than buying the individual volumes which values at RM51+. Based on Amazon's search, there are 7 books altogether. I might be saving up some money to buy these next and it will be a collection which I'll start next year.

I was telling my sister whilst we were in Kinokuniya how expensive it was. Then we had a debate on why I should spend RM200 on a book when I can easily download it online. That was her argument. Here's my argument. I want to support the author. As frankly as my sister has noted that the author was already laughing 10x more on the way to the bank. I know that but I still feel the need to lend my support by purchasing a copy of it. My second argument, nothing beats holding and reading a physical book. My third argument, I do not intend to wear Coke bottle glasses at my age. Hence, why I'm still contemplating getting an e-reader. Its not feasible if I buy the e-reader and still purchase a majority of my books from the BBW sale. Plus, have you seen the e-book prices?! Whoa! After doing the math, I might be paying more for an e-book. Yeah, you cannot argue with the space saving but it still costs too much. :( Anyway, back to the story. Who knows, with the introduction of this graphic novel into my life, it might open doors to more graphic novel series. Do you know that Cassandra Clare came out with a Manga novels for her Infernal Devices series? Whoa! I don't know yet whether I'll purchase it since its based on the books that I already have in my collection. However, whatever Cassandra Clare churns out has never failed me so far! :) 

Do you have a favourite graphic novel or comic? Wolverine? Spiderman? Archie comics? Tell me what's yours! :)

Writer's block

Should I call it Blogger's block? I'm currently suffering from this "disease". Its been far too long since I've made any posts here.

Any time I have an idea on what to type, I would stop myself. Stating to myself, "That's not interesting enough to read". I'll keep having this debate with myself and like the below image, I kept thinking I have to blog a post! Not turning into a zombie like the below image though. :)

As you all know, this blog of mine does not contain much beauty related posts except those videos that I've attached from my YouTube channel. Otherwise, its purely about my life. This is the way I vlog. Talking about vlogging. Vlogging is a phenomena now on YouTube. Almost everyone is doing it. I was intrigued and really want to get on the band wagon too. However, since vlogging starts in the morning right after you wake up (that's the point, its recording your entire day from start to finish), I don't think this type of videos are suitable for me. Mainly due to I don't wear my hijab in the house all the time. :) I wear it just when I want to go out or an outsider visits my house. Therefore, if I do this kind of videos, I would literally be hot at home. Hence, I would sometimes do a snippet of me doing some grocery shopping here and there. If I would do these videos one day, I would have to figure out how to do it best that would be a convenience for me. :) I have a relatively laid back life though. I'm more of a home body. So, I wonder if that would be an interesting content. Hmm... The other day, I was considering buying a small compact camera. Its easier to carry for an on the go vlog. However, my budget does not permit me to do so. Hmm.. :( Plus, the memory is too small. If you want to record in HD, it would take up too much memory. Camera woes. :( I'll have to make do with whatever I have for now. Oh well. You can't have everything. Just have to work with what you've got. :) I hope you're having a good start to the weekend! I'm staying in this weekend. Yeay! :)
