I don't like the feeling of my arduously created tranquility being shaken at a piece of disturbing news. It's been a while since I received it and I've undergone the process of denial and rationalization, but I am coming to terms - especially after accidentally discovering the presumed cause of it all. It was such a petty matter, never once considering that it had the potential to be such a.... complicated matter.

Remember how I said that I am on my travel explorations and therefore won't be able to update as much as I would possibly wish? It's unfortunate that all of the plans have been delayed to a later date but for a good reason, fret not. Mama Carrie and I prefer to wait for my student visa or Certificate of Enrollment to be issued and processed before any travels; it's something positive, if you ask me, because I want to isolate myself without any worries or extra documentations being required by the Aussie Embassy.

So yeah, my feet are back to being glued in this muddy city for the time being.

Back to the topic: all of my peers have all realized something's changed in the campus. I still call it as such because of the infrequent returns. The familiar aura that somewhat permeated the mutual haunt has dissipated the moment we graduated, leading to more reminiscences between current seniors, but that's not the disturbing news. For someone who loves her campus, it sounds slightly shocking but trust me, it won't arrive at such point that it'll be my second home; my second home is at a place where I am away from all of the familiar faces and chatters. The one I inferred to in the first paragraph involves claws. But why would I need to furrow my brows and bring myself to care about it anyway? I mean, since I practically have a rough idea on the causation - although an explanation would help to tie some loose ends. It's something that I doubt I'll ever receive and against my curiosity, I won't investigate because I'm not capable of receiving any more unwanted surprises.

And on that note, I shall take my leave. The clock is ticking faster than I want it to be and my eyes are slowly falling heavily on me, signaling that my bedtime has arrived.

Stop and clear!

It was by chance that I stumbled upon the last couple of packets of instant yoghurt powder (bought from Woolworths Morley). I knew that I can't leave it to rot in the cabinet for the next occupant to clear; that'd be mean and a waste of food.

In a pot of lukewarm water, stir in the powder.

Strain into a rectangle-shaped container (like the one illustrated in the succeeding picture).

Leave in the warmest area of the house (it's usually the kitchen, but it can be the living room at times) for around 12 hours or squiggly. (I made the error of leaving it unrefrigerated for 18 hours and the batch that I made smelt like it was fermented.)

Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or until firm.

Enjoy!! (I topped mine with almonds since it's been barely used.)

P.S.S. Since Mama Carrie had bought the yoghurt maker from a MLM company years ago, I usually make use of that item whenever I want to eat the homemade version; it's somehow easier. But it's been packed away for my future use in Australia, forcing me to make do with whatever I have.

And off I head, in search to rid the heart of worries

Something simple yet classy: floating tea candles
To the readers of The Tempremental,

It has come to that time again: the moment when I'm taking an indefinite hiatus from the blog to straighten things in my personal life. This time around, I'm heading on a travel exploration (that may be deemed as the farewell goodbyes by some acquaintances/family members) before the semester intake.

I'll slide in sporadically, however, to update you on my current whereabouts or to visit my fellow bloggers when I have stable Internet access. To be honest, this is beginning to remind me a tad bit too much of the Perth trip, where I was forced to go cold turkey for 3 weeks, haha.

With that being said, don't expect to find me on Facebook, updating my timeline or browsing the notifications either. Messages will be read and replied to (even on Whatsapp), but in a slow manner.

Please, please bear with me and pardon the inconvenience imposed on you and me.

You may be wondering, when will I be regaining my full access? Since the Internet plans in Adelaide and Kuala Lumpur differ, I can't promise you, my readers, anything, but one thing's for sure. Expect me to see me bouncing around on February 16th onwards.

Warm Regards,
Ciana Carrie
(or Waverly Charlotte, depending on what you know me as)
