AS mainstream at it sounds, I revisited my 2016 resolution and reflected on it. Can't believe I've only had 3 resolutions last year because it felt like 30. Thankgoodness I've achieved everything except for learning how to bake like the mother of cookies. Year 2017 was a year of self exploration. Also the year which marks the end of something which has been holding me back eversince. Didn't focus too much on growing but we all know that GROWTH isn't optional. It came along as I focused on understanding my true self. It's an adventure that'll never stop because true enough, I haven't been focusing on myself at all to deserve what my mind and body contributed to me these years.


I'VE never stopped working. My plate was always filled with things I love but there wasn't a slot for me to step back and do nothing. Being productive is absolutely great but it hit me real hard several times last year where I was shaking with tiredness and my sight got blurry but I bit the bullet and powered through still. This could sound insane but at that point of time, my mind was telling me to go forward and I felt it was the right thing to do. Don't get me wrong, my body was in good shape and I was physically the fittest and healthiest I've been in years. Mentally very strong as well. In honesty 360/366 days were spent feeling grateful and bloody happy.

Give myself more time for a breather. Be less harsh. Enough said.
. 02 BAKE
Back to when I was a teenager, my 'career' goal for life was to be a housewife.
Amazing how a person could change over time. wheresmyreportwhathousewifecomeon.
Baked chocolate chip cookies a few weeks back and for a virgin baker dang were they presentable.
For the next bake, I'll be cutting 50% off the recommended sugar input because I'm an old lady that doesn't have a sweet tooth.
Jokes aside, time to get back into baking.
If you have an easy chocolocate chip cookie recipe, please share.

That's all for now as things get dirty and messy in the kitchen.
List of resolutions to be updated as at when anything hits me. Because how is 2 ever enough?
What are your resultions for 2017? x
Happy March Love.

Inspirational Monday



I want to create a life where the choice of making decision lies in my hands. Whether having street food or savouring a meal at Ladurée Paris Champs-Elysées. Whether it's cycling to work or go grocery shopping in a fancy sports car. Whether it's strolling at the park nearby or paying a visit to the Natural History Museum in London. Enjoy life and make decisions not based on affordability but solely a choice I choose to make. Giving myself financial freedom so that I could be present where life truly is. Not dollar and cents. F price tags.

Update: I've been diving into new areas out of my profession, increasing my net worth and finding someone to share life goals, aspirations and laughter with. Crawling through the final leg of February like a goofball because it's coursework week. Dealing with studies and backlog of blogwork. Also craving for a chocolate doughnut. How are you doing so far?

Fight strong. Stay humble.

Inspirational Monday

FEBRUARY 2017 marks the 27th month I've been in the corporate field as an internal auditor. In most cases, we deal with top management the most and people up there have fought for life, went through hardship and view things differently from a broader perspective. There is a saying: You are the average of 5 person you spend time with. Honestly true af. One thing I've learned from the baby boomers, was the importance of going an extra mile in all our endeavors.

Perform beyond expectations. If you only do what you're meant to do, darling, that's when you get a stagnant paycheck. In order to be successful in life, be observant, proactive and have the willingness to do more, think more, have a holistic perspective and go beyond the call of duty. Mum keeps reminding me, what is there for you to lose? Probably nothing. Being a 90s kid, we know the Big 30 is coming our way. Time to pass on the baton to the millennials. 

We haven't been catching on sufficient snooze for the past 2 weeks. Now where's my pillow.
