There’s no pre-planned for the New Year Eve before this. All we did was dressed up, meet up and have a good time at a club with good vibe & music. I left office for the day and head back home. Luckily the traffic didn’t get jammed up. After a brief dinner at home, I started to get ready for the celebration while waiting to meet up at my place. We drove off to pick up other girlfriend before we head to a club for the celebration. I choose my simple dress and put on my simple make up with a little smokey eyes on top.
We went to Zeta Bar at KL Hilton for the celebration. I like that place as most people really nice or they really high on alcohol and they just being super-friendly. The ladies and the men there really dressed up well unlike those few clubs that I went, where you can see tons of freak shows going on. DJ is the best so far and he’s known as DJ JD. That’s easy to remember, huh? Bartenders are super fast and friendly. So far throughout the night, there’s no drama or fights going on so far. Luckily! Except for 1 particular guy, he’s damn arrogant and keep eating up my space at the bar. WTF? Get your own space dude! Overall, we ladies have a great time and we arrived home safe, at around 4-ish am! Oh well, have a great year ahead everyone. May 2014 would be a great year for all of you!
This post is going to be like a self-help blog.
My pre-wedding shoot will be on next week and I am looking forward to it. As I browsing through the website for tips to have pleasant photo shooting I decided to go to my long abandoned blog here. I used to have free time and passion to update my blog. Not for money making of course. It’s more like a journal for me to look back after so many years later. At least I could see and reviewed what I have done so far and what I have been through all my life.
I started to blog when I was in college 1st year back in 2004 as I have access to internet way easier compared to my high school days. To think back I have rough years until I completed my university days in 2006. Most of the time I was alone and don’t really socialize much unless I’m going to class. After that I’m back to a lonely girl who spent most of my time reading and sleeping my dorm room. Perhaps I’m not a fan wasting time gossiping and spending money I don’t have by hanging out with certain group of people gave me hard time to blend in the group. Different taste, different background and different languages. I have to admit I can’t clicked with too Chinese-Educated people. Sorry to say, not being a snob, I tried, seriously! It’s just don’t jive. Simple thing like dressing style and way of thinking already put me in a very difficult situation to blend in.
I did involved in relationships back then. 2 crappy men I’m in love so much I would say and I think they don’t deserve a spot here to talk about them! They took my 6 best years and I really regretted to be loyal to these assholes for 3 years each! I wish I could be prettier and slimmer, things can be different where these boys would just do anything for me and shower me with gifts or treat me like a princess. These useless thought stopped when I decided not to let anyone to determine my life. Enough said. If I want that shoes, I will work hard and buy it myself. If I want that house, I will find my way to make my moolah and buy it with my own effort. At least I am accountable to my life and no one else can take that away from me. I’m glad I met my husband who cares for me and accept for who I am. Yes, including my 78kg body and plain look with flat nose.
When comes to personal achievements, there is nothing to shout about. Never was an athlete or genius math whiz or something in school, I do have low self-esteem back then and often have wishful thoughts like, if only I could have a rich family that could send me to overseas and never come back. I wish I could just live luxury life without worries and have the best times of my life! There are times I wish I could have tons of money and just go shopping without worrying about my bank account. It getting worse when I went to university followed by celebrating my 32nd birthday with no birthday blast party or something. I’m pretty upset about it as this is not what I wanted to be like at all. I guess, truth hurts and reality hit me hard! After reviewing and find out the reasons why the heck am I sulking here, I decided to put this useless thought at rest and write down my goals and plans. To make it more exciting, I will post it in my blog soon and let the public knows so that I have no excuses to avoid it because everyone is watching me. Of course, I do not wish people watching and waiting me to fail.
Reading more inspiring blogs about real people does gave me more insights on how to take control of my life. Yes! There are still hopes. These are few start up thoughts and plans I have in mind to move forward:
- I have to accept the fact that my father is not Robert Kuok la! I know. I’m just a plain girl born in a middle-class family. That doesn’t mean I will die as one plain girl too. Unless I don’t do anything about it by just let the time goes by and eat my youth away. I decided how much I must earn each month to sustain comfortably and how can I do it to achieve that. Of course, I put a deadline there, by age 35! Oh yes, tick-tock, time is ticking 3 years to go mate!
- List down 10 long term goals, 10 medium term goals and 10 short term goals with deadlines. Sounds crazy and this is not what I usually do. You know what, I’ve been wasting away 32 years of my life, time to take control and get it back!\
- Prepare a bucket list and do all these crazy things before I die. Oh yes! One of them is to compete in marathon and get a bloody medal. I shall post the list and going to execute these and blog about it.
If you still reading up to this paragraph, I really appreciate it! Normally people just gonna click “X” once they read the 1st paragraph. Thank you dear reader, I need support from you. Once I’m done with the 3 things I’ve mentioned just now I shall post it for more updates.
I admit life can be a bitch at times. There are ups and downs in life that shaped our life to become who we are today. Nevertheless, to be that someone I wanted to be it’s also a matter of choice. Life is full with choices but it could disastrous if we made the wrong choices. Clearly I can’t turn back the time and fix it. Instead I have to move forward and let the past stayed where it belong, i.e. Past.
Oh well, what am I babbling about now. I’m supposed to finish my final report for my assignment on ILLY, the most famous provider of premium coffee in the world that also the world’s 2nd most valuable commodity.
Alright. Back to the assignment and shall update more next time!
Normally on the weekends or even on Friday nights, booze and happy hours always been in the top of list. This could be my nature of job during back then. I have to socialize to expand my network and get to know influential people in the industry. There are times I find it superficial and it doesn’t serve the purpose anymore. Beer belly and bad hangover are part of the aftermath of the social activities. It was strictly involved drinking only and nothing else if you know what I mean.
Picture above is just an illustration. Thanks to people I know back then, get invited to exclusive events gave me a great experience to feel how it’s like to be in the invited list. Free booze, great music and get the chance to dress to the nine. I get to know great and nice people during the events. I’m surprised that they are not the snobbish people they appeared to be. They are famous in the blog sphere and there are few of them very well known in the media industry. I think celebrities are being misunderstood and not all of them are bunch bad-ass attitude bitches.
Well drinking sessions I turned to food review gathering instead. This time I had the chance to taste what’s new in town and to review it. I’m still a newbie till this day and not going to admit that I’m a food expert. By starting my footstep to be a food lover becoming my new goal in life. Food is not just about tasting it and swallow it. It’s all about the passion to know how’s it’s made and by knowing the good food out there it’s inspired me to know one step further about cuisine. If you realized, I replaced the word ‘food’ to cuisine. Live to eat now and not the other way around.
Till then, I’ve listed down where I wanted to go for food hunting with my guy. After this, let’s filled this blog with more cuisine-one of the wonderful things in the world that we always passionate about.
I’ve been to my hometown trying to conquer the mountain and been on a luxury yacht with loved one. After that followed by family gathering at the border line and stepped on the Merlion City for an important day to celebrate.
It broaden the horizon and make me realized that life isn’t about chasing to my dreams. Life also about stop for a while, smell the flowers and reflect what have you’ve been doing since you can remember.
