Living life on a rainbow recently.
Career change and work challenge makes me excited.
Everything outside my comfort zone is making me high.
Don't be fooled by the monochromatic picture and I'm not on drugs. haha!
Subconsciously juggling work and studies like a clown.
This final module is way tougher than I've expected! Journey to Masters graduation seems bumpy.
Totally beaten down by my not-good-enough English literacy (#sarcasm) with understanding on all reading material like a 3-year-old.
Everything worsens when Baidu translate decides to tell you that 'Emancipator Rhetoric' is Italian, with the meaning of Chicken Rice in Bean Paste.
You know life is good. Joke aside, 解放的修辞 still doesn't make sense. Baidu translate failed my entire August.
Fingers crossed for a better September.
Stocking up on coffee mix and warm cuddles before heading back to Hunan! :)
PRETTY SURE BAKING WAS PART OF MY 2016 RESOLUTION...
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 HARDLY EVER STOP DOING ANYTHING"
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.

THIS 2017 I WANT TO..
. 01 BE SELFISH
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.
Life couldn't be any better.
Enrolled myself into University of London.
Got the offer letter to do my master's degree.
Made a brave decision to focus on personal advancement.
Adding one more dish to my plate is giving me butterflies.
Dealing with career, life and studies wouldn't be an easy task.
Just in case you don't know how much of a workaholic I am, here you go.
I have faith and confidence that it will all turn out magical.
Shall build a strong mind, keep the momentum going and start sprinkling fairy dust.
Year 2017 will be an exceptional one.
