Dear Lenny,

Thank you for the lovely letter you’ve sent me last time. I promised to send a response and now here it is! Yay! 🙂

I’d like to start this by greeting you a Belated Happy Birthday! It’s so cool to know that we share the same birth month. Like what you’ve said in your letter, it does seem overrated, but I do wish the same good things for you and may all your prayers and heart’s desires come true. We may not know each other personally yet and writing this now made me feel like a have a “pen pal”, which I think is awesome.

I would love to meet you and fellow bloggers someday and be a part of those fun events and social gatherings you all have from time to time. Sad to say that it can be difficult as my work schedule isn’t always so accommodating. Maybe in time, I might be able to squeeze a few events on my schedule so we could finally meet and it would be perfect! ❤

Anyway, I am going to bore you with the story of how my birthday went, so I hope you won’t stop reading. ;D

I didn’t have a party as most people do. For this year, I endeavored to have a quiet and quality time with my beau. We had a  simple lunch at Applebee’s where I get to have the usual free dessert – because it was my birthday and I want dessert! It was a good thing that there weren’t many diners yet because being sung “happy birthday” to by 3 staffs while shaking their tambourines can feel kind of embarrassing. And yes, it was also fun 😀

After we had our lunch, I wanted to have a stroll in a park and was thinking whether we should go to MIA Park or Alkhor Park. Of course, Beau suggested Alkhor Park since he knows we can go to MIA Park anytime. So off we go to Alkhor Park and we had what you would say kind of a road trip with Bruno Mars singing 24K Magic in the background. As always, Beau and I were having a carpool karaoke moment. 😀


So I don’t know if you’ve been here yet but the place was quite charming. It would’ve been nice to see more people, but due to its location, it would be impractical to go here every time. However, there’s a huge play area for kids, an aviary, a waterfall, a battery-operated train etc. The place is both a zoo and park at the same time. I think you should visit the place if you haven’t yet. It’s a pretty place for some nice photography to add to your beautiful collection of pictures. ❤

Well, I have a feeling you’ve already fallen asleep with my letter so I’ll just cut to the chase and say that we ended the day with a movie at a mall (B Square Mall) and cinema (Roxy Cinemas) we haven’t even heard off until that day. Also, I was finally proposed to by my Beau. It wasn’t the most conventional way of proposing, and I was surprised, to say the least, but I said YES! And now I’m an engaged person… whatever that means. Haha!

Anyway, I really am stopping now. Would love to share so much more but one post would not be able to hold them all.

Belated Happy Birthday to you again! ❤




Happy Birthday Blog!


Whoa! It’s been a year now? This is the day? Really?

My mind seems to be reeling on that fact. I just woke up you know. Hahaha! But anyways, Happy Birthday Blog! Let’s have more fun times together and less on the gloomy ones.

I love you Blog!

Hmmm… I realized that me and my blog have the same birth month. Can you believe that? 😎

DAY 27: A Letter to my WordPress Followers


Dear Followers,

I sincerely lack the right words to express my gratitude to all of you who thought it worthy to follow my blog. I started this blog last February for my own leisure and I didn’t expect to gain this much followers in 10 months. I know the number maybe small compared to other bloggers, but for a neophyte (I still consider myself one despite this being my second blog) blogger like me, I am honored.

Thank you followers! 😀

                                                                                                                                                                                   With all my love,

                                                                                                                                                                                   Kimberley (purplemunchkim)

DAY 8: How did You Discover WordPress?

I can’t remember how and when did I discover WordPress, I can only remember why.

Like I’ve said previously in one of my posts, I love reading. And there was a time in my life when I was unemployed 😀 when I took to the internet like there was no tomorrow. I’m always on different websites, reading news and interesting articles from all over the world. I got particularly fond of reading blogs at this point and I’m not sure if I’ve read any single blog that made me want to start blogging, all I know is that suddenly, I wanted to give it a try. 😀

At that time, WordPress and Blogspot were the most common hosting sites that I know of for blogs, and the ones I constantly see being used by the different bloggers I usually visit. Anyway, I made accounts on both, but then I end up preferring WordPress more. So yeah, that’s why I’m here now.

Also, this is my second account at WordPress. I made my first one in 2009, which you can check HERE, but reality peeks its ugly head and I was on hiatus for more than a year. When I decided to resume my blogging, I made a new one, and now I’m nearing my first year with this blog again. 🙂

Drafts to Finish

It’s been a while since I last posted here, and I feel kind of awful about it since I love seeing new posts in my blog even if I don’t think anyone is reading it. So to compensate for the “no-post” days, I decided to write something or anything right now that happened or I noticed during my hiatus that I would like to share.

So while I was still pondering what to write, I opened my dashboard and got surprised when I saw this!

“my draft list”

Apparently, I have seven drafts I still need to finish. Pretty convenient at a moment when I still have no idea what subject to put into writing. I guess I’ll need to muster my thoughts and wits around me to be able to finish these drafts… that is, after I find the right inspiration for why I started them all in the first place. HA! 🙂

But I’ll get there… 🙂
