NYC In A Nutshell

If I wasn’t such a lazy person, I’d be a vlogger by now. I can’t even maintain a full blog let alone do video blogs. It takes up so much of your time and requires a whole lot of dedication. Carrying a DSLR alone is already dedication in itself. After almost a year since my trip to the East Coast for Christmas and New Year, I have finally decided to wrap up the video montage of my few days in NYC. My sister took most of the footage because she had her own video to do, but here are some snippets of that crazy city in our eyes.

Post Birthday Thoughts

It hasn’t sunk in that I’m 28. It’s a weird feeling of either “because I can’t accept it” or the “I couldn’t care less because I will always feel mentally 19 anyway” mixture of emotions. I mean what’s new, right? My birthday was a blur but it wasn’t a bad one at all. In fact it was pretty damn great, if we’re talking about scale. The birthday weekend was so packed that I was hardly able to keep up with all the happenings. Ending a busy work week in Singapore and flying off to Jakarta in time for my birthday weekend full of lunch and dinner parties with friends and extended family, hosted by my ever supportive Aunts in Jakarta who not only want to give me the best but also love the thrill of event planning. Birthdays will always have that stress factor. In addition to the pressures of “adulting”, there’s also that need to celebrate because you’re so blessed to be loved by people that you want to share it all around. If …

Blog In My Head

If only there was a machine that could register the blog ideas that spew out of my mind at the most random of times, then I’d totally be a super regular blogger. I have so much makeup but have barely done a one product review post. Why is that? Laziness. LAZINESS is the form of all evil. Writing is one thing, I love writing, heck I can write as much as I want.. but a pretty post with pretty pictures of the things I’m writing about? That’s another thing. So here’s a mental list of the things I want to blog about but I am too lazy to do so. Let this post serve as a knock on the head. 2015 Makeup Favorites US Makeup Haul (oh there are a lot of these) Brow products review (THERE ARE ALSO A LOT OF THESE) New York Trip Washington DC Trip New Years’ Day in New York Hong Kong November Trip Christmas Day in New York City Watching Matilda on Broadway Singapore January Trip

Hello, 2016

I don’t even know where to start. What I know is, I finally got the 2015 review posts out of the way! I promised myself last year that I wouldn’t resume blogging unless I filled that out. I know everything in this blog since the year started has been long overdue considering today’s date but I would like to at least redeem myself for my 2 month absence. Here’s a little recap of how my 2016 has been so far.. For the whole of January I was only “home” for less than a week. As soon as I got back from New York, I had a few days to unpack and breathe for a bit before heading off to another Singapore work trip. That was a really packed week where I did lots of alignment with my bosses, meeting clients, and working with various teams on achieving projects, not to mention team outings and just generally catching up with colleagues I work with every day but don’t see. Ahhh, the wonders of being a digital …

2015 Year In Review, Part I

Hello there! Happy Valentines Day and welcome to my very first entry of the year. Before I go through what’s been happening, I’d like to do another set of Year In Review entries again, like what I did last year (here). I remember having a really good introspective moment while doing that entry and while I feel like so much happened last year, I can’t believe it’s been more than one whole year since I did that. Ah, time. 1. What one event, big or small, are you going to tell your grandchildren about? If you feel like the decision is right for yourself no matter how scary, make it. 2. If you had to describe your 2015 in 3 words, what would they be? Full. Of. Surprises. 3. What new things did you discover about yourself? I can actually fall in love. 4. What single achievement are you most proud of? Making decisions for myself despite what people around me think. 5. What was the best news you received? Oh, I had my fair …
