On the day that I could leave the office (way) earlier than usual, I was greeted by this gorgeous sight, a sunset like never before. It got me thinking on how much I’ve missed this time of the day where I can slow things down and appreciate what I have around me in comparison to my daily routine of leaving the office only when dark falls; usually later than expected.
I recently met a friend who reminded me that work’s never ending (which is 101% true!) but more importantly, family is the one who would stick by you instead. Nope, I’m not saying to shrink in responsibilities at work but I guess knowing when to exactly stop and take a step back. He challenged me to start with leaving the office on the dot three times in week and gradually increasing it.
This is definitely harder said than done, that’s because I actually love what I’m doing at work but the energy that is required seems a little on the powerless side and that’s when I know it’s time out season and would need to recharge on that.
I’ve been missing out on so many things; photography is probably one that I miss the most! Hopefully, I’d be able to get back into the habit of photographing and not lose that eye/passion. So here’s to the first post of 2017!
I don’t know about you but the cold and fuzzy weather here in the office sure makes a Christmas album more apparent than anything! It’s officially 8 MORE WEEKS TO CHRISTMAS! Time has flown away too fast, too fast for me – but I need to find some time to reflect and ponder how have I spent this year!
Meanwhile, enjoy this Christmas album and be thankful for what the Lord has done!
After seeing tones of videos online showing how it’s done, I just had to jump unto the mirror nails craze. I’ve been to Summer Nails a few times after getting a recommendation from a friend who patronises her shop often.
After understanding my nails condition of it being very brittle and thin, Samantha was really nice to apply the gelish polish in a way so that it’ll last longer by adding on an additional layer + she used a different top coat for the mirror nails to prevent it from cracking.
Ps, this is NOT a sponsored post and I really wanted to share where I occasionally have my nails done while in Johor Bahru since the options are aplenty.
Indeed music needs no differentiating in language and I’m one advocate for that. Of course it takes a bit more effort in trying to get meaning of each song, but sometimes music needs no explanation. So these days, I’ve been really into Indonesian songs and they are actually on repeat mode, even my Indonesian friends are surprised by my selection of songs.
What are some of your favourite songs that aren’t in your usual language?
Hands up if you’re a fan of the now defunct website – pixelgirlpresents.com! But if you’ve noticed lately, the site seems to be down so I came across their FB page with a user who provided a link to a achieved version of the site.
