From Dawn till Dusk // 01

a day in our lives

11.00 am // Waking up with breakfast in bed and a movie

Last monday we had a well deserved day off. On days like these, we like to hang out, reconnect, get some new inspiration and rest. Something about this particular day made it extra special. It could be because we have been working non stop since we got in Kuala Lumpur and haven’t given ourselves much time to relax. I don’t know but there was something about this day that made me want to document it.

12.30 pm // I used to work as a hairdresser and I took my scissors with me. Nick’s hair was getting too long.

01.30 pm // While exploring the garden I found these clay ovens. I took a few months of ceramics at art school, I would love to learn more.

03.00 pm // Walking around the house of our AirBnB host, admiring all of the things she has collected over the years.


04.30 pm  // The garden of our host is one of the best. She is a botanist and I’m guessing her favorite plants are cacti and succulents. She has a million and they look perfect together. She also grows her own pineapples, papaya, mango, lemongrass and cloves (although her clove tree died a short while ago). The other day she made us lemongrass water, really nice and refreshing.


06.00 pm // Hanging around in the garden together with the stray, scabies-infected cat that is always trying to get in to the house.


07.30 pm // Nick is making our first home cooked meal in months and I’m so excited! He is making quesadillas with a very tasty guacamole.


08.30 pm // Dinner time! It was so good. I actually prefer Nick’s home cooking over 95% of all the restaurant food we ate in the last 8 months.

After dinner we made some tea and watched another movie. We felt completely revived and energized. A perfect ending to a perfect day of doing nothing at all.
