Journal of a 40-something year old wife, mother and chicpreneur.

I’ve just watched back to back episodes of Younger’s season 3 finale. If you haven’t watched the final episode then be warned, there are spoilers ahead.

Breaking down the key events in the double episode ending:

  • Liza and Charles kissed
  • Josh sees them kissing which ruins the marriage proposal he had planned
  • Liza tells Kelsey the truth about her age

Point number 1: Liza and Charles
Oooooo Liza. Liza. Liza. How could you?

I know it’s tempting with Berlin singing ‘Take my breath away’ and all but still….

Anyway, I do think that Charles has more in common with Liza than Josh does but that makes it such a boring relationship if they were together. I doubt they’d last long if they did end up together. I love Charles but I’m not a fan of Liza and Charles together. I do have to give him credit for his excellent taste in music, I mean who doesn’t love Berlin!

Point number 2: Liza and Josh
If you can’t tell yet, I’m a BIG #teamjosh supporter. The guy is patient and has put up with so many of Liza’s issues. If that’s not enough proof that he loves her, I don’t know what is. I really do feel sorry for the guy though. Walking in on his girlfriend kissing her boss on the night he planned to propose to her, that’s a big smack to the face.

I’m heart broken with the way the relationship ended. I really love Josh and Liza together and hope that there is still a chance that they’d get back together again in the next season; though I don’t know how Josh is going to look pass all of Liza’s screw up.

Point number 3: Liza and Kelsey
Honestly, I don’t know how Liza managed to keep the lie that she is a 40 year old posing as a 26 year old for so long from Kelsey. Anyway, I’m so glad she finally told Kelsey the truth albeit for the wrong reasons; maybe to make herself feel better and come clean to Kelsey after Josh had called her a liar.

I guess we’ll just have to wait for the next season to see how Kelsey reacts.

Before I end this post, can I just say that I absolutely love, love, lovE, loVE, lOVE,LOVE Sutton Foster in the white conrad dress by Ronald Mouret in this episode. The dress looks so beautiful on her and really shows off her endless legs.

Now… what to watch next to occupy my time until season 4 returns…

I started blogging maybe about ten years ago. My first blog was a book review blog called Ulat Buku in the City; obviously inspired by my favourite show then, Sex and the City. Yup, that’s how creative I am with blog names.

Anyway for those who don’t know, Ulat buku in my native language means book worm. When I blogged at Ulat Buku in the City, I blogged for fun and enjoyed socializing with the blogging community discussing the latest book launches and reviews.

After I got married, I still blogged but not consistently. Then when I had kids, I kinda stopped writing and blogging all together. I tried to go back to my blog a couple of times but somehow I felt that I outgrew the blog, specifically the topics I covered. I wanted to write about so many other things plus I was no longer a single girl living in the city, so the name Ulat Buku in the City felt like a misrepresentation of who I was. I started a couple of other new blogs after that but it all died after a few posts.

In the past couple of years, I have been thinking about what to blog about. I kinda wasted time on the thinking and planning that I never got around to the actual writing and blogging.

I just love to write. 

I do. I love to write and blog. It really is my hobby. And in the years that I did not write and blog, I missed it. I missed the process of creating a blog, making friends and communicating with other like-minded bloggers. So I’ve decided, I’m just going to start writing and blogging. No more thinking and planning. I will commit to writing and blogging at least two posts a week in 2017.

My strategy to keep this blog alive is just to write, blog, connect with other blogger and then repeat.

Why 40 and Above?

Well, I’m currently 41 years old and am going through a lot of changes in my life. So I thought why not share what life in the 40’s is like from my perspective. This blog will cover my personal interest; from books to family to food and fashion (or lack thereof).

I have so many things to share about life in my 40’s and I think it’s enough to keep this blog running for a long time.
