It’s a Hair-y Thing.

I suppose this year will be a year of change for me too! 

If I can be vain for a little while here, (deal with it, this is my blog!) my hair looks like it’s the longest it has ever been, and I’m still deciding how to feel about that.
Hm, I’ve always thought having long hair is super troublesome, especially since I would need more time to wash and dry my hair in the morning (gawd that 5 minutes of extra sleep makes a LOT of difference!) Before I had it permed, my hair was this big ball of mess. Naturally thick, but neither straight nor wavy, it was a disaster. Everyday I would wash, dry and style it so that it wouldn’t look like I just came straight from the cave with my roomate, Caesar the Ape. 
But, coming back to now, I’m pretty happy with my hair because lazy me doesn’t have to do much than just to dry it after showering. And having a long hair somehow makes me feel more.. feminine. Yes  okay that may sound stupid, but that’s the truth! And, my face looks less chubby. (What’s new?)
But yeah, it’s getting long.. and now the question is, what should I do?
Before I knew it, I had dialled my hairdresser’s number and made an appointment for tomorrow. I guess we’ll see what happens. (Maybe I would be tickled with that impulsive bug and decide to chop it all off..)

2015: Our Best Year Yet!

Hello everyone! It’s been a long time, I apologize. The last few months of last year have been crazy, and I mean crazy! I spent most of my time in Jakarta, and had my birthday, Christmas and New Year in the superbly breathtaking New Zealand!

2014 has been an awesome year, but I know that 2015 is going to be my best year yet!

So here are my new year’s resolutions that I wrote during a company retreat in December.

Personal Goal
1) To start at least 2 new investments by this year.
2) To go to Japan and Harry Potter theme park
3) To write more. Blog at least once a week.
4) To finish Game of Thrones books

Family Goal
1) To spend more time with Dad and my sisters, if possible have another family vacation

Career Goal
1) To get a promotion (Update: I did it! Achieved in January, which means, maybe I need to aim for another promotion by this year? OH YES!)
2) To have an independent branch in Jakarta

Health Goal
1) To take part in at least 2 marathons this year

It doesn’t seem much but I learnt not to set unrealistic expectations that are just going to demotivate you, but then again, my goal this year importantly above all those things that I’ve listed above, is to be a better me, in everything.

Better person, better daughter and sister, better girlfriend, better co-worker, better friend, better learner.. A me who is going to make me proud. 

I am so happy at where I am in my life now, and can’t be more grateful for the people around me who have given me so much love and support. Together let’s make this year a smashing mondofabulous one!

I’m going to blog and post pictures from my New Zealand trip soon, so stay tuned! 🙂

Keep smiling, because life is a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.

Living life!

It’s been a whirlwind of activities and business these past few weeks! I’m really enjoying my work tho, although it can be overwhelming sometimes. I think the secret to cope with everything is just to keep a positive mindset, and instead of looking at it as obstacles, think of it as challenges and goal that you can achieve!

Anyway I’m so grateful for my new colleagues and also friends who keep me happy and motivated just by being there! It’s important to keep a balance too, you work hard and you gotta have fun! 
I’m looking forward to having my elder sister back in Singapore! She has been away in Australia for the past 1.5 years and I’m so excited to have her back! She still is my best friend and closest confidante, it’s truly a blessing to have a sister that is also your friend. At least you can’t shake her off even when you have arguments! Right?
I think from now on I have to focus more on doing things that I enjoy too. I’m glad that I have made more time to meet old friends and reestablish connection with people that I have lost in touch with. I think working close to town has a lot to do with being able to do that. I promise that I won’t take them for granted anymore. 
I think this post is so random, I don’t really know what I’m getting at, but hey who cares right? It’s great to just be able to write at my heart’s desire. For those of you who don’t know, I have another blog that I share with my sisters: http://www.threeof1kind.wordpress.com. I’m making a mental note to write more in there too, but yes you should check it out if you like reading about travel, food, photography, pretty clothes and basically just happy things!
On that note, I’ll see you soon and hope that you’re doing great too, wherever you are! Remember, happiness is a choice!
