It’s almost the end of the yearrrr!

My favourite time of the year; the festivities, the food, the catchups and best of all the HHOOLLIIDDAAYYYY πŸ™‚ have a few bazaars and events planned for end of Nov to early Dec but after thatttt.. Yahooooo!

Come 23rd December, I have officially been living in Kuching 4 years! Holey moley!

Hpweverrrrrrr, I am totally looking forward to the getaway and also the not-doing-anything.. (Because I really am doing something even if I’m working in my jammies at home!) seriously πŸ™‚

What are your holiday plans?



I know I know.. The word slack does not even describe it

I have not only been soooooo caught up with life, I’ve been lazy, forgetful and just basically immersed myself in all other social media outlets to update my daily life! But I’m back, with more pots on the burners!

Stay tuned!

Happy Dragon New Year

It’s Chinese New Year and I’m homeeeeeee in Kuching. Awesomeness galore. Not only is everyone home, but everyone is older (hehe) and richer so that means more fireworks, more money to be won and more money to be collected. Love love love.

It’s been almost non stop visiting and hanging out, which is super. Hanging out with high school friends, reminiscing on the old days, wishing we were 15 years younger but with the brains of a jaded 30 yr old. Sigh..

But I got 12 days of celebrating to gooooo πŸ™‚ I just need to last the 12 more days hahahaha




Wishing everyone a safe and super new year πŸ˜‰

The Birthday Bash

first of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR and hello 2012! πŸ™‚ its been whirlwind (i know i say this all the time) but seriously, the year just FLEWWWWWW past! and i seriously enjoyed it to the fullest πŸ™‚


weeks of planning. hours of re-arranging. phone calls one after another. emails back and forth and it was all over yesterday!

dad celebrated his 60th birthday with his closest buddies and it was a really fun night! and the food was not half bad






p/s more pics up on FB πŸ™‚ twas’ an awesome awesome night! πŸ™‚

sitting on the balcony

lately work seemed crazy, and then it slowed down (ok, i may have taken a day.. or two off ) and now its back up again. and they were right when they said that working on your own thing is WAYYYYYYYYYY harder than working for someone else. doesn’t help much that i work from home,Β  my work is mostly online and i feel like i have the dreaded threethirtyitis syndrome.. when its NOT 3.30pm!!!!!

but hey, it’s always been the grand scheme of things, and with the way the world is headed now, its definitely the path for me! but over the weekend i had a fantastic time, hanging with family, making new friends, checking out new places.. just lazing around! now, that’s really, the LIFE!

Have an awesome week! πŸ™‚

one big happy family

there’s something about coming from a big, wide and varied extended family πŸ™‚ you gotta love the connections, the relationships and best of all the family-ness. i dont know how to phrase it, its just something all big families understand. im blessed to come from quite a big (sometimes crazy in a very very fun way) family on BOTH sides and i love it! its always the little ones who crack me up! i mean, my little niece Lala is the CUTEST little thing ever. and shes sooo smart, its amazing!

not quite 2 years old, she is one awesome little tyke!

is she not such a little crack up.. she posed for me.. LOL

gave up trying to get her to smile πŸ™‚






p/s finally sold the speakers!! πŸ™‚ all i got left is the Belkin πŸ˜›
