For The First Time My Heart Felt At Peace


Sometimes it amazes me how much a person can love; unconditionally and beyond measure, that even with our flaws they see beyond that and love us anyway. I found someone, well at least he found me. I wasn't intending to share this but it's a kind of love I've never felt before. For the first time my heart felt at peace and that I will be okay because I have him.

The Real Battle Lies Within Ourselves

The Real Battle Lies Within Ourselves


I’m up up in the air flying to Tokyo as I’m writing this. i feel a sense of gratitude, happiness and contentment. I just turned 29 and the couple days was spent with the people I love most. I pre-partied in Hong Kong, had lunch with the ladies, a staycation with my man and now we’re traveling to Tokyo, the city I’ve been wanting to visit.

As I count my blessings and look through the days ahead, I realise that though there will always be people that brings light to your life, the real battle lies within ourselves. How can you feel contented yet still move forward? How can you control your emotions without compromising how you feel? How can you feel okay with not knowing what to do and spend the rest of your life not knowing it? These are just some questions I have yet to answer and perhaps someday I will have for them.

Epic Weekend In Hong Kong

Epic Weekend In Hong Kong


I partied too much in Hong Kong. Pause… I fell sick after but I’m not going to bore you with that. Partying in Hong Kong is very different from any other city. The clubs are open till much later and there’s enough places to eat after you’ve drown yourself in alcohol at 5 in the morning. It’s enough to keep you going while you burst out your energy till the sun rises and that's pretty much what we did for 2 nights in the row. Only in the second night, we had to end the night early. Clearly, we had too much to drink.

4 - 6 Aug, Fri - Sun

The first night calls for gathering the peeps we met at random. Gab, the Mr Conyo dude who lives in Hong Kong and Francis, the Canadian guy I met a few years back who happens to be in the city for a work trip. What are the odds and here we all are at Lan Kwai Fong getting ourselves enough drinks to dance the night away, mostly gin and tonic. But what made it amazing was the Dragon-I club and catching the sunrise by the harbour with wines on hand to keep us going. Oh and we did take a ferry back to Kowloon at 6:30am. 

The second night was more eventful thus passing out too early. Pre-drinks at the hotel with the remaining Merlot from the night before, Heat Wave Party by W Hotel #showface, Ozone Bar at 118 Ritz Carlton, Port Bar then some club I forgot the name of. Too much shots and mixed of strong gin and wine killed me but the boys ain’t done yet. After heading back to the hotel at about 4:30am, say what?, they still manage to finish up the bottle of wine plus another one. I joined the conversation till 7:30am but I had to sleep for the 1am checkout.

It was literally an epic weekend. What a way to pre-celebrate my 29th.

Happy 29th Birthday To Me

Happy 29th Birthday To Me


I know I'm writing this a bit early but I have time to think and I know I won't be able to pour it all out in the coming days with all the travel plans so here it goes.

I won't say my twenties has gone by quickly, in fact it was set on a phase where I slowly learned and defined my principles, values and beliefs. I learned what's important and how to value myself more than I did back then. You can say that I have grown wiser after almost a decade of unexpected events and countless experiences.

Now I allow myself to feel things and not apologize for it. To believe there's good in people regardless how often life proves you otherwise. That we shouldn't be quick to judge or tell anyone that the decisions they make in life are wrong. We're not any better than them. To always have faith and know that life meant well. You just have to trust in it.

As I enter the final year of my twenties, I want to tell myself this:
Please don't be scared. Embrace change as it comes and know that you are never alone. That there will always be someone in your life during times of need. Remember that your only real responsibility is to strive to live each day with happiness, contentment and to work hard for a promise of better tomorrow. Life is short so do as you please, you only have this time left.

PS: Every year I try to write something on my birthday just that I missed a good 3 years. But here are my 22, 23, 24, 25.

Back To Back Trips

Back To Back Trips


Starting this Friday it's going to be a mad dash of travels and celebrations, well at least for a good two weeks. First stop HONG KONG! Yes I can't get enough of this city for its food and energy, literally the New York of Asia. The plan? To drink and party non-stop for 2 straight nights before flying back to Singapore. We have Lan Kwai Fong on the list and a pool party at W Hotel. Sweet! My Canadian friend is also in town so it's gonna be a blast of party and amazing people. What a way to kick of my 29th birthday.

Thereafter a short and sweet staycation to celebrate my birthday and off to Tokyo I go! A full week in the land of the sun where I'll eat my hearts out from ramen to sushi to street foods to desserts. Gosh I hope I don't gain 10lbs when I head back. Honestly, I'm just waiting for someone to ask me to go to Japan because I don't dare navigating the city on my own with the language barrier but here I am all set and ready to go. Japan I'm coming for you!
