October was a crazy one. Traveling from Hunan to Beijing back to Kuala Lumpur then Singapore to Penang and back to Hunan in just barely 2 weeks wasn't a joke. Even girl boss was mentally exhausted. If you read my recent post on Haemin Sunim, you would have guessed that October was one of the most fulfilling yet stressful month in 2017. Just because everything was so overwhelming, I had to take a step back to focus on self-realization, self-appreciation and self-awareness. I became more conscious with my internal feelings and begun to take control over my thoughts on the surrounding. It was the month where I put all attention on 'ME' (which seldom happens) and gave my mind a well-deserved rehab.
p.s. Finally updated Instagram and posted my 1st Instagram Stories. ikr.
[REVIEW COMING UP SOON]
Highlight: 张学友's concert. I cannot comprehend how much excitement was in me when he started singing 她来听我的演唱会. Yelled from the bottom of my lungs throughout the concert, especially when this guy whipped out a ring from his right pocket to propose to his partner (shown on the screen). She didn't look too happy though. lmao.

I have never had so much self-doubt in myself for the past 11 months. Reflected on the things that did not work out and felt underwhelmed by everything that was orbiting my universe. I know it is normal for anyone to lose track once in a while. I was barely functioning. Got drunk (several times dammm it), didn't sleep well for weeks and started feeling stressful over everything. From losing an eraser to breaking a finger nail.

December was magical.
Checked off two items off my bucket list:
1. Be in Hong Kong during the Christmas month.
2. Visit Khao Yai (Sunflower Farm) in Northern Bangkok.
After losing chills for over a month, I regained mental strength. Just before signing off my final business trip of 2017, it snowed. Experienced my first ever snow with 'Autumn Leaves' playing in the background because what's better than having identity crisis. The name I have in mind for my future dog pet is 'cat'. Now you know. Went on a short trip to Bangkok and got tattooed. Temporary but it made me realized how badly I want a tattoo on my arm! Also, I met someone special :)
p/s. This post was drafted just to prove that I'm still alive.
It is becoming increasingly fashionable to collect watches in this modern age that we live, and there is a wide selection of styles for you to choose from if you are looking to start a collection. If you do decide to collect watches, then you will need to keep them well-maintained and stored correctly to keep them in excellent condition. There is plenty of advice on websites such as the Readers Digest site, on how to keep your watches looking great for a long time to come.
. Treat Them With Care .
It is typical for the modern collector to not only collect watches but also to wear them as well. The more you wear a watch, the higher the overall wear and tear with scratches and scuffs, and if you have an antique watch that is in need of repair (or just bloody clumsy like I am), you can take it to a specialist such as https://www.kalmarantiques.com.au/ to fix and restore your watch. Although you may take excellent care of your watches, there will most likely be a time when they may need some repair or restoration work.
. Store It Correctly .
When you are not wearing your watch, you will want to ensure that you store it correctly and that the condition is nice and dry. Many watches come with a display case that can be used when you are not wearing it, and using these is an excellent way to look after it when it is not being worn.
. Make Sure It Keeps Ticking .
If you have a variety of watches with a quartz movement, you will need to make sure that you keep it ticking, winding it regularly but ensuring you do not over wind it. If you have a watch which charges through kinetic energy, you can invest in a watch winder that stimulates the movement of the body and will not over wind the watch.
. Give It A Clean .
You will want to give your watch a clean on a regular basis, and depending on the type of watch you may wish to use a professional service for this. You should get your watch cleaned and serviced every couple of years, which should keep it in tip-top condition for many years to come.
. Verdict .
From the previous posts, you'll know by now how much I appreciate a good timepiece. I know if I were to take excellent care of my watches, they can keep ticking for a long time to come, and even qualify as a hand-them down as a family heirloom. At home, I store my watches in a watch box gifted by my father (he wanted to throw away initially). However whenever I'm away, watch storage is always on the surface of my desk or bedside table depending on my mood or wherever I fancy. (a.k.a. next to my shoes, lol jokes) In year 2018, I know it's time to get a watch box and give demn watches a bit of TLC . How do you keep your watches sexy? x
