I feel so grateful and like my old self, recovering from the nasty cold I had contracted on Saturday (from people who never learned to cover their mouth while coughing, like is it not about to be 2017, people?? If you haven't learned by now when will youuu).

This morning I woke up feeling well enough to finally check out year-end sales (after lunchtime, as I was celebrating getting my taste buds back by indulging in brunch), then ended up going to a different mall for dinner to see what else is out there - then promptly regretting my decision, because I ended up buying things I don't love a hundred percent.

So typical, Liyana.

But let's see if I can exchange those items tomorrow... (Dang it do stores allow exchange on sale items??)

This cowl neck long sweater is one of my cosiest sweaters EVER, one that I've terribly missed wearing as it's much too warm to wear out and about around my hot and humid town! I bought it specially for my previous back-and-forth trips to Japan, during which it ended being really useful; not only is it comfortable but as mentioned, it kept me warm as toast during the super cold winter with just Uniqlo heattech layers underneath (those things are a GODSEND) and a coat on top (like with this zebra coat).

My trip to Bukit Tinggi for my anniversary was the perfect opportunity to break out this sweater from deep inside my closet as the place is a lot cooler than Kuala Lumpur, but when Shah decided to do a quick visit to Genting Highlands - which has an even cooler temp - during night time, I thought, "Perfect!" and did a quick change from this denim-on-denim outfit by substituting the top parts out into this cowl sweater (and hid the cowl under my hijab so people don't think I'm delusional, because we were still in hot and humid Malaysia, after all) and a different pair of shoes.
