Hate to See Your Heart Break

"There is not a single word in the whole world
That could describe the hurt."

I kept your heart in a glass box.

You gave it so willingly, asking me to keep it safe. You kissed my hands and wished me well. So I left it in the box, tucked away in my drawer. Every night since, I checked to see if it still beats for me. I always smiled at its glow. Tonight was different. Tonight, I removed it from its cage. Tonight, I held your heart in my hand.

This is where we end.

I never wanted this to happen. Staring at the concrete ground, refusing to look at you. My breath slow and tears swelling. I hold everything back, you say nothing. We both realise then where we stand. After a long silence, I finally speak. Three words; barely a whisper. I repeat it again and again, until I cry.

“I’m so sorry.”

How were you to know, we would end like this?

My Family Does My Voiceover

i love them to bits 
but this is ridiculous.

A plethora of 'My [blank] Does My Voiceover' have sprung up online. From boyfriends to dads, neither of which were willing to do this.  Instead, I turn to my siblings when I was back in Brunei. Two girls and an unwilling boy in the living room. I asked them up front.

"Do you want to do my voiceover?"

Each turned to me, eyes wide with mischief. And I immediately regret it. 

So my family did my voiceover.  How did it go?

17 Things to Do in 2017

17 things to do in 2017 by HEY BASH
we survived 2016!


But we survived! And that is important reminder as we enter 2017, unsure but scared. Rather than focusing on our fears, justified I might add, I want to be optimistic. Looking forward to the new year with things we should do. Some exciting, some insignificant but all something to do.

So to highlight the importance of doing, here are 17 things to do in 2017.

MOTD | Soft Eyes, Bold Lip

it's been ages since I've done an MOTD.

Applying a full face, taking photos then proceed to wash it off immediately.

Ever since I received Soulmatte Cosmetics' Matte Lip Kit from Xema Su, I wanted to wear it. For the past few months, I've settled for brown nudes rather than this beautiful bright red. With the intention of starting fresh with a slew of new makeup looks, I decided to film it.

So this is a relatively quick and simple look featuring soft eyes and a bold lip.

5 Personal Goals for 2017

Bash Harry Brunei-born and UK-based Blogger
in theory, this should help me.

After all, every self-help book states setting goals is beneficial. Small goals, big goals. Those easy to achieve, and some harder to accomplish. I enjoy the idea of goals. However, going through with them is a task I’m unwilling to commit. I’ve noticed this since last year. I didn’t achieve any of my personal goals last year.

And that’s fine. It means I can start fresh. 

These are my 5 goals for 2017.

Youtube | New Year, New Me? (but not really)

i doubt it, but i'll give it a shot.

"A New Me."

The new year also brings around the idea of a new identity. The hopeful slogan scrawled across online pages. Magazines telling you to change. Be nicer, get fit, study hard. Become a better person than you are now. I've never quite believed this.

Nevertheless, here I am. As usual; cup of coffee in my hand and glasses hiding my eyes. There's a nervous tick, ball of anxiety as I try to explain. This is a new year, but not necessarily a new me.

It's just me.

Favourite Blog Posts of 2016

one year of blogging gone. 
and how did it go?

It was alright. 

2016 wasn't perfect but it was alright. Apart from a few, long schedule slips and less-than-stellar blog posts. Despite them, I did find a few gems as I scrolled through old posts. Some I forgot I wrote, and others I remember with joy. I thought I would share those gems with you.

In no particular order, here are my favourite blog posts in 2016.

Five Things in December

oh hi again.

I repeat again and again. And again. Even I wonder if I will actually keep my promise this time. 

My apologies for forgetting to write Five Things for November. However, if I am to be honest, I have forgotten most of November. It passed through like a blur, constantly lying in bed or sitting in class. It wasn't exciting, at least compared to December's constant rush.

So here are my five things in December.
