Life Choices

Life is incredibly weird at times. Sometime I am not sure whether I have been making the right conscious choices in life to get to this point I am in life now or have I just been incredibly lucky? I guess it really depends on whom you are talking to. Some may even claimed that…

Living in a new country

I have been slacking big time in blogging for some time now. When did it first start? Probably – since I got busy at my Dunedin workplace in New Zealand. I wish there were more exciting excuses but it all came down firstly by the busy-ness. Then, it was just mental block. This followed by…

Learning Norwegian (Norge)

Where should I even begin? I am surprised at how desperate I am with wanting to learn and speak the language as quickly as I can. And I guess due to my desperation, I am still at no where with my language after 1 month in Norway. It is even harder having to learn it…

Officially a Mrs.

About 2 weeks ago, I married my partner, CF. The weather was so unpredictable on our wedding day. It was windy, sunny-ish and rainy. Of course, at the back of my head I was yearning for more sun since we are getting married outdoor by the beach. Camping-themed wedding. We didn’t get exactly get what we…

To Date

I have been meaning to blog for some time. But I don’t know. I guess you could call it writer’s block? Many times for the last couple of month, I sat down in front of my laptop and there is literally nothing. Just blank. It is not like I have nothing to say or I…

How to make tough choices?

The funny thing is making so-called “tough choices” or even in making any sort of choices had never been a big issue for me. Why? Because I make my decision with my heart and gut instincts. It has yet to fail me. Most people will said this kind decision-making is an emotional one and will…

Marriage and Wedding

So, is there a difference in the above? Of course, there is. There is a huge difference between a wedding and a marriage. I think often couple confused the two where a wedding is marriage in the midst of all those excitement. But it is far from that easy. Weddings are fun, bubbly, positive, full of…

Minimalist Living is a Choice

Call it what you like but for me, living less means having more (more time, more organisation, more control, more to live my dream). I have no idea how I get to where I am today in regards to my living choice. Just that I favor “minimalist lifestyle” [meaning:] downsizing (less stress in terms of rent or…

The F-word!!

I have no idea what you are thinking but I was thinking of the word “feminism“. So, what’s feminism? If you plainly just google it, you will find this: Feminism is a collection of movements and ideologies aimed at defining, establishing, and defending equal political, economic, cultural, and social rights for women. This includes seeking…

Fluctuating Life – Normal or abnormal?

It has been awhile since I have updated this blog. Some friends were wondering if I am still alive? LOL! Unfortunately for you, I am very much alive but life has been fluctuating. Just before starting this post, I was just thinking to myself. What should I write about after some months of abandoning this…

Counting my blessings on my birth month!

This is a special month for me as I turned 33 just a couple of days ago. Due to the amount of workload I have recently, I am struggling to find time to appreciate what I have nor the time to blog anymore. Excuses, excuses and more excuses for not appreciating. Welcome to adult life,…

Why Goal Setting Can Fail You!

The Cooking Challenge! Do you still remember that? I set a cooking challenge goal to achieve in 52 weeks. Right? Where am I now? Slacking. I know. I set a goal and had not followed through. One of my real reasons was that I was away for nearly 2 months. So obviously it did not allows me…
