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…

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…

Veni, Vidi, Vici….

 Veni, Vidi, Vici…. I wish, I dream, I hope and I will Venire, Videre, Vincere I come, I saw, I conquer What am I conquering, you asked? The World!  

Rediscovering Myself

Rediscovering yourself can be a scary process. It can be overwhelming. I know I am. Everytime I learnt something new about myself, I felt that I have to leave my comfort zone to re-adjust everything I might have known. I was emotional drained and physically exhausted. At times, I felt that it was just easier…

Life never goes according to plan

I’m sitting in my room doing nothing much and I just don’t want to think much but I am. Honestly, I think I’m getting a bit depressed. Yup, blamed on my “awesome crazy” personality. I don’t know why but I always felt that anything I want in life, firstly: never ever come easy and I…

Seeing myself now within this moment in life

  Right! I know I have not been trying hard enough to blog more. The truth is I can’t seem to find the time. When I do, I am just exhausted. But it is no excuse. Anyway, just a little bit of catching up. Next week will officially be my 3 months in the camp….

Merging of the 2 blogs

Due to my inability to maintain a regular standard number of posts in my travel blog at  http://travellinghedgehog.wordpress.com/ and my sheer lack of time, I was to relinquish my above mentioned blog and only to concentrate in maintaining The Orient Diary at the highest quality and consistency. My apologize to those who are already following the two blogs. But,…

♥ Finding simple pleasure in life! ♥

Want to find just simple things that would make you happy? Easy! These are just some of my humble suggestion: Go outside, Take a walk, and Smell the air. Learn something new that you always want to. Add something green to the place you are always at. (A plant or A flower) Go pamper yourself….

Why do we buy and buy, and buy even more?

(1983) ‘Industrialism, consumerism and power’ Industrialisation is the key discipline of our body (embodiment). When we work, we manipulate our body. We deny the body a degree of…
