See that picture above? That's how I'm feeling right now - tired. If you are a follower of this blog, you'd be aware that I'm currently packing my stuff for the relocation of our office next week. I have been working in this office tower for (let me think...) about 5 years. Five years isn't a long time, but it isn't a short time either. I have grown to love the place, considering that it takes me about an hour to travel to work, and vice versa. I know I may sound like a broken record, but right now I can't help feeling nostalgic about everything. I think it may take me awhile to adjust to the new environment, just because I'm still feeling sentimental about my current working place.

Onto another note, I'm enjoying reading Kazuo Ishiguro's A Pale View of Hills. This is the first book I read by this author, and I'm glad this book didn't disappoint me. There is an atmospheric feel to the story, though I can't say it is entirely creepy. Mr Ishiguro had it written in a way that makes you feel totally intrigued and captivated by the story. You just couldn't help but to keep turning those pages; yes it is that addictive. I have to make sure to check out the rest of the books by this author in the near future. And speaking of books, here are a few which I bought lately:

So Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part 1 opens here yesterday. I wanted to watch it badly but my husband said he could only watch it with me the week following next, due to his work commitment. I just wish that day will arrive sooner (My husband don't read the books, but he really enjoys the movies).

Well I hope everyone has a great weekend ahead (it's Thursday night while typing this). I'm hoping to have the review of A Pale View of Hills up next week, considering I'm spending lesser time on blogging nowadays due to my office shifting but we shall see.

    I hear ya, Melody--that's exactly how I feel, too. Just waiting for life to slow down, but I'm afraid I'll now have to wait 20 years until kids are grown. :P

    Good luck with the move--I know you're a little sad about it but I hope it all works out.

    Must be a new Ishiguro book! I haven't heard anything about it yet--glad you're liking it.

    And we're waiting to see Deathly Hallows until the crowds die down a bit.

    Hope you're having a lovely week.

    I know what you mean...packing is never fun. But I'm sure in due times, you'll get everything done. I'm just glad there another co-worker helping you out. And yeah, it really hard to say goodbye to your old office and other stuffs you going to miss. But I get we all have to go through changes sometime :(

    I'm glad you enjoy reading A Pale View of Hills. It look like it giong to be interesting book. And I hope you enjoy all the other books you recently brought too.

    I'm looking forward to read the new HP movie part 1 too! I hope to this weekend...we shall see :)

    5 years is a long time. It must be difficult adjusting to a new place. But don't worry, considering how friendly and cheerful you are you'll make new friends in no time and you can always go and meet your old friends :)

    I want to watch Harry Potter too but I have no one to see it with. My husband would have come but he hasn't seen any of the previous movies or read the books.

    I'm sorry you have to move from your office Melody. It sounded like it was a great location too. I just hope your move goes well and that soon you'll find that the new space is a great place too.

    So glad to hear you are enjoying the Ishiguro book! He's such a wonderful writer.

    Have a great weekend and try to find some time to just relax.


  7. Big hug for you, Melody! Moving is no fun. I've changed offices several times and it is never fun.

    I haven't yet read anything by Ishiguro but I've heard so many good things about the author's work.

    We hope to see the new Harry Potter movie sometime, maybe this next week if it's not too crowded. I'm really looking forward to seeing it.

    I hope you have a great weekend, Melody!

    I hope the move went well. I've moved offices a few times from one tower/building to the other so I know what you mean. Think about it. How many of us get that opportunity? It's great. LOL! Hope you're well rested.

    Hi everyone! Thanks so much for your kind thoughts and comments. I've moved offices a few times and though it's quite a hassle, usually it's the places that I missed because you've just grown used to and came to like them after awhile. ;)

    I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)
