Sunday Serenity

Today was a good day. This afternoon, I finally treated my nails to a gel manicure in this sweet pastel hue that I’ve labeled as “yogurt mint” — a soft, milky green shade with subtle blue undertones that exuded serenity.  This might sound weird, but manicures spark creativity and inspiration within me. There’s just something…

Revelation

“Without knowing and without wanting, we build walls. It happens quietly and slowly over time when we choose the things in life that do not command love and righteousness. It happens when we forget to spend time with God in solitude. Then one day, we struggle with loving our neighbors, we struggle with understanding what…

Rainy Saturday

I have heaps of photos from ages ago that I’ve yet to edit and publish. Might start doing that these few days. Hope everyone’s having a great start to the weekend!

Wild Honeys In Sunny Singapore

I’ve been meaning to write, but I guess I lost a little bit of that creative spark for blogging over the past few months. The irony is that I’m writing and editing articles at work everyday for Kaodim’s Malaysian and Singaporean blogs, but I’m mostly writing about interior designing, cleaning, home renovation or catering –…

There Will Be A Time…

“There will be a time, not so far from now, where you look back on this phase of your life and instead of condemning it or beating up on it, instead of blaming or guilting, you will feel appreciation for it, because you will understand that a renewed desire for life was born out of…

Just Keep Swimming

Photo credit: Tumblr You might feel like you’re drowning beneath all that pressure, but the storm will cease, and when it does, you’ll emerge stronger than before. It’s a struggle now, but it’ll be a wonderful story later.  Just keep swimming.

What’s On Your Mind?

“What’s on your mind?” I find it really hard to answer that question. I could tell you about something totally random – like how I’m planning on getting a new shampoo – or I could let you in on something really personal… which is often the more anticipated reply to a question like that. But…

#ThrowbackThursday: West Village & Brunch Babes

June 2013, New York City I often find myself reflecting on my life back in NYC, even though it was ages ago. I was an ambitious 23-year-old living alone in my dream city. Every day was an adventure in New York, from the extraordinary strangers on the streets to the eclectic array of cuisine that ended…

Ice Cream Friday

I work in the heart of Uptown Damansara, the thriving hub of restaurants and cafes, so there’s never a day that we starve to death at the office. Baskin Robbins is just around the corner and they were offering a “Buy 1 Free 1” promotion on Friday, so I stepped outside for a quick ice…

Cody

This is the reason for my sleepless nights, but he’s so worth it! Welcome to the family, Cody. For as long as I can remember, I’ve always longed for a puppy. But there were always the stop signs: no space (back when I lived in an apartment), or the fact that I might relocate to…

Hello August

New month, new beginnings. One of my biggest goals this month is to experience God again on a whole new level. To have a personal encounter with Him, to feel His amazing presence everyday and to be filled with His joy and peace so I’ll be able to spread more of His love to the…

Candy Sky

The week just breezed by so quickly, and it’s almost the end of July. So much has happened but I haven’t had much time to document any of it. My work schedule hasn’t allowed me a lot of time to blog, because I’m usually too tired after work or too preoccupied during the weekends to…
