20 days in 20 pictures
I spent the last 20 days at my twin sister's place, house sitting, as well as kid sitting my 7 year old niece and 9 year old nephew.
In an hour or two, my twin sister and her boyfriend will return from their camper van holiday that made them pass through 6 European countries.
I will pick up the kids from the schoolbus one more time ( for now, that is ), cook dinner ( already preparing ), the 6 of us will then enjoy our meal together and I expect to be brought back home, ( a 15 minute drive ) afterwards, to finally sleep in my own bed, once again.

The animal and us - Drawing concept
I come back today with a little drawing project. I wanted to make a connection between the animal eye and the human one. Especially, the pet's eye. Because we always say that our pet is a part of our family. And so, in that sense, our pet is a bit like of a reflection of us, through the way we look at them.
Secondly, I wanted to point out the richness of the differences, which in the end bring us closer to one another. Pets can also have peculiarities, and perhaps the same as us, even if they are different species. Heterochromia is an example of a peculiarity that both a dog and a human can have.

Top 8 signs you're not funny
It is ironic that I am writing this in comedy open mic. Maybe.
Have you ever brought yourself to forcibly laugh at your boss when it is performance appraisal season?
Have you managed a weak smile at your father-in-law's attempts at humour?
Have you gone out on a date with a really hot person who says something and has to tell you that it was a joke?

Will you enrol in a "CRASH COURSE IN ROMANCE" ?
Crash Course in Romance, a drama I didn't have much expectation but got me hooked. It played well with my emotions as I laughed, fell in love with the characters, cried with some touching scenes, exasperated over some issues and conflicts presented and got thrilled with its's underlying mystery subplot.
But before getting into the details, how I came to watch this drama was quite a drama in itself. It's a result of, in my own terms, romcom kdrama sepanx (separation anxiety). I don't know how to label that feeling when you can't move on to watch another romcom drama because you were too hooked to the previous one. Like how a breakup feels like.
It's not Thai Ko Lipe with its amazingly turquoise waters, not Indonesian Karimunjawa with extravaganza of corals on the seabed, but I love these restless waves at picturesque Da Nang beach 🇻🇳 (called My Khe Beach). The most photogenic place!
I had never seen such sea in my life before I visited Da Nang in 2018 for the first time. I've seen seven seas (I mean literally), and none of them had this particular charm.
