Hi, guys, I am reinstating weekend reads from this month onwards. It’s a curation of interesting reads and stuff hence I am calling it Kurated by Kovfefed. I am going to post this series only on the last Saturday of the month for now.

Without further ado, enjoy!

A library built in honor of Haruki Murakami.

There is a Silent Book Club one here in Victoria. I am so going to check it out.

Interesting bookshops in Scotland.

Stuart Dunker reminds us that today’s bad day can be tomorrow’s nostalgia.

Coronavirus – Days Without Name.

I have been waiting for Sakuna: of Rice and Ruin for months. It has been released early this month. Waiting for my fave gamers’ reviews before dropping $69 on it.

I have a thing for architecture and creepy abandoned architecture. Here is a half-decade abandoned hospital, Yang Ning, located in a small town in Nagano Prefecture, Japan.

The creepy Cecil Hotel.

Hungry for books about Cannibalism.

Eating pickled fish and picking mushroom will make you happier.

I watched Unsolved Mysteries’ Tsunami Ghosts on Netflix. It brought me to tears. Highly recommend! It also reminded me of a beautiful post: Nine Years after Fukushima, penned by Rebecca Otowa. Other Netflix shows I watched and recommend this month: 1BR and The Call. Both are brilliantly acted horror-thriller.

“I am on a sacred fucking mission. I’m waiting for the goddess. I believe in ghosts. And I will defy the darkness and I will tell our story. — Adrian McKinty on Why He Writes.

The rich culture and cuisine of Indonesia, beyond Bali.

  • Ashley wrote about choosing a minimalist lifestyle: “…I don’t want to spend my life jumping from distraction to distraction. I don’t want to wake up and wonder what happened to my life…”.
  • 6 easy steps to build a chic minimalist wardrobe. The second step is my favorite.
  • I am willing to exchange ALL of my current watches for this fuelband inspired i-Watch.
  • Photographs tell stories, we all know that, but pictures of photographs, well, it’s another level altogether.
  • 10 core principles to clear the clutter.
  • And I discussed minimalism with Xandra over here on the blog.
  • Tammy goes small, thinks big and happy while living in a teeny tiny house. That gives me a shift of perspective.

December 2013

One last cliché on 2013, I can’t believe it’s the last week of the year! It has been a base year for me. I put the foundation needed for the big changes in the future, or in other words, I didn’t do much this year. Wait, It’s not like I have been lazing around doing nothing every day (even though that’s my main goal in life), I did travel to Australia, read 26 books, spent more time with my parents and save a little part of my salary among other things. I am a happier with myself and that’s a major accomplishment in my book. Okay, enough with self-help talk. Let me share the post I love, made me smile, made me think and made me go awww..

I called my dad after reading Bonnie’s a home is just a home. A sweet reminder to appreciate our loved ones and share the best memories with them.

Best Travel Instagrammers to follow in 2014 . I, not so secretly, hope someday I make the list (note to self: post more scenery and less pedicure pictures).We can learn a tip or two from Jamie’s Travel Essential packing list. My favorites? #8 and #12.

Love to pick Erika’s brain over a dinner! Check her fabulous how-tos on not quitting our day job, but I don’t cook, I am still learning, so how about coffee instead?

Speaking of coffee, check out these unique coffee experiences from around the world. I am grateful for having tried a few of them myself including the one in Tokyo. Ummm coffee..

Thank you for reading love.

Weekend Links June 2013

  • Feeling inspired by Kolbi’s Mood Board for a month of blogging, I want one of those. Also, he wrote about being a guy blogger, which is mind-opening. I only follow a handful of male bloggers for the sole reason that they don’t have enough pink on their blog, but for Kolbi, I am making an exception.
  • I love it when a blogger who has a perfect life shares about the imperfection of it perfectly while still being perfect.
  • I have the pleasure of reading Alexandra Franzen’s blog recently, and WOW!! Isn’t she so inspiring?!!! I love everything she writes. Her latest one was about creating a miracle instead of writing a blog post. Inspiration meter charged to 100%.
  • I loved the way Laura describe the blank page effect of it on her.
  • Facing a blogger’s brick? follow Erika’s When In Doubt, Be Helpful. Another way to fight writer’s block: write while standing.
  • How about some fashion inspiration? Apparently, Olivia Pope doesn’t wear that much white (I knew this before, but the skirt wearing = time-traveling part got my attention).
  • Leo Babauta wrote about turning inspiration into action. I just did number 1 in the beginning of this post.
  • You know, it’s one of my dreams to attend a Blog Academy class. I LOVE all three headmistresses! This time, Shauna shared a valuable lesson, Blog Manifesto, to define our blog and blogging further. Cool! I will try to come up with something this weekend.
  • A special shout out for Singapore bloggers (expat, local, just stopping by-ers) Join us for a MeetUp soon.

Do you feel at least gain a teeny tiny bit of inspiration? I hope so!
