 Always apologizing even if I don’t need to.

Sadly not with exercise I check my phone but its a work in progress.

 Seoul. Obsessed with Kdrama

This stood out for me: 

“Rishi Sunak’s father-in-law, NR Narayana Murthy, may be worth £3.9bn but lives in the same Bengaluru flat with his wife, Sudha, that he did decades ago, drives a small car, clears up the dishes, and cleans his own toilet.
Murthy is famous in India for co-founding, in 1981, the software firm Infosys, now a £9.6bn multinational that employs more than 345,000 people.
The only difference from when he and Sudha were an unknown, ordinary couple is that the flat is filled to the rafters with books.
There is no glitz in their life, no haute couture, no lavish holidays or private jets, no swanky homes, no luxury brands. Everything about them is low-key and subdued. Murthy is an introvert who likes nothing more than to read.”

 Exercising with David, my partner.

Buying more clothes. My overloaded cupboard hates me for it.

 Air ticket for my first flight ever.

Oprah, because I would like to know what it feels like to be so successful.

 Liam Neeson (a legend) and Song Joong-Ki

Mntase (my blood, my relative, my brother/sister)

 Go on that holiday to South Korea

 If you could change one thing, what would it be?
