Top 5 Books of 2018



This year I only read 11 books, definitely the lowest number in the last 3 years. I just couldn't get myself around reading because I was focused on exploring other creative activities. Hopefully in 2019 I get to read more. In the meantime, here are my top 5 books of 2018.

1. Balanced and Beautiful by Karena and Katrina (This book makes me feel like I have an amazing girlfriend that inspires, motivates and understands me. Definitely worth a reread.)
2. Nourish by Heidi Schauster (For someone who struggles with an ED, this books helped me define what is important in life and how food should just be secondary.) 

3. The Power of A Praying Wife by Stormie Omartian (It helps me understand how a man is and how I should act with it.)

4. In His Image by Jen Wilkins (I learned how much we are created in the likeness of Christ, that we are created in his is image)

5. The Dark Between Stars by Atticus (It gave me all the feels. I just want to cuddle this book while I end my day)

2. Became vegan but I'm more vegetarian (there is that gray area and I'm working on becoming fully vegan 2019)
3. Completed 100 miles challenge by Tone It Up.
4. Went to Singapore Zoo for the first time.
5. Tried colouring, knitting, learning mandarin and tarot cards, yoga teacher training, boxing and barre.
6. I can finally do a headstand (with a wall) and a split.

I Saw The World Before Me

I Saw The World Before Me




I don't usually stay late in the office, in fact I rarely do. But last week I had the chance to stay longer than I normally do and have a moment to see the sky change its colour, twilight if you will, right up high on the 22nd floor of my building.

I remember thinking how beautiful this city is, how my life could change, how I will not forget I started right here almost a decade ago.
