It’s Been A Long Time…

February 15, 2021

9 years has passed since my last blog post! I didn’t even know if I still have the correct password to this account.

A lot has changed.

The world has changed. My life has changed significantly.

I hope you and your family are well at this time.

I have been at a pause in terms of blogging. My priorities shifted and I just couldn’t find a dedicated time for it. I miss the sharing of thoughts of like-minded (and sometimes otherwise) people. I miss the encouraging community that has been created.

During this pandemic I think everybody’s life came to a pause and had a reset. I look back on this blog and read past posts and comments and I am reminded and encouraged that there are people who are so positive and uplifting. It still has the same effect on me when I read it now.

I read my previous posts and it’s so nice to look back at the old me – how I think… how I write… how I interact. I sometimes miss the old me.

It’s different now. While I do wish I still have that kind of “innocence”, a lot has changed these past 9 years. I am a wife. I have two boys. Looking back now, I can’t believe I have just given birth last year, at the height of the pandemic and everything on lockdown.

As I embark in this new chapter in my life, I hope that I would still be able to find that voice that I had on this blog. I hope to find the old friends (and maybe make new ones) in my continuous journey in this thing called life.

I want to continue this story.

YouTube is a different platform. I’m trying to learn new things. Pictures can put life to blog posts. There’s just that different feeling when you’re able to watch something that moves. It brings it more to life, I think.

My hope is to continue the interactions… the conversations this blog has given me the opportunity to experience. I think it is helpful, especially at this time, to find these people who you can share your thoughts with without judgement.

I do look forward to seeing you there.

I Dream . . .

January 21, 2011

.

This reminds me of a little corner shop here up for sale. Lots of sweet treats indeed! But alas, definitely out of the budget 😦

.

. . .Β  of owning a little shop filled withΒ  sweet treats (either for the eyes, heart, or taste)! I imagined it to be bright, colorful, and fun and that everyday I will enjoy very much working in my imaginary store and hoping I give the same feeling to anyone who enters πŸ™‚

.

But then as I grow older, I realized things weren’t easy peasy! Actually putting up a visible store is harder than it seems – lots of planning and other important things to consider that have to take place. And so, my dream started melting away.

.

For years and years it has just stayed as a dream, beautifully and carefully wrapped and then safely tucked away deep in my heart. From time to time I take my beautiful box of dream, open it and every time I take a peek, I just smile. But mostly, dust started embracing it.

.

Early last year, my eyes were opened to the discovery that my dream can still come true with some changes here and there. And so this little dream of mine is slowly creeping out. Through out that year, I started dreaming more and more.

.

.

.

T’was the dream . . . and a journey awaits . . .

.

(Sometimes I feel stuck and I’m overwhelmed with nerves but Ro has been really supportive ever since I opened this dream of mine. I am very thankful to have him . . . believing in me and giving me that gentle “push”)

To Love . . . It’s The Sweetest Thing

My heart aches (in a good way) and smiles because of this picture. Wouldn’t you agree?

I’m not talking of love solely in a romantic way. It’s love that is universal.

.

To love our family, friends, “special someones”, .Β  .Β  .

Today, I was reminded . . . no matter the contrasting views (at times), no matter the color, no matter the status in life, .Β  .Β  .

.

TO LOVE –Β  –Β  –Β  it’s the sweetest thing and the best gift of all πŸ™‚

4th Sunday of Advent

Only a week left and it’s already Christmas! Time sure flies fast when you’re not noticing. Do you already feel that warm feeling inside during this Holiday Season? Oh I bet every store is filled with shoppers rushing to buy last minute gifts.
.

Work will be until the 23rd (I think) and then I’ll have a 4 day vacation. Ro and I are planning on coming home for the Holidays. But we have to hurry and buy our bus tickets. Otherwise, we’d end up with a fully booked schedule and get stuck here. (Note to self, will remind him to buy tickets tomorrow πŸ™‚ ) The sad part (a little) is that we won’t be able to go home on Ro’s family side for the New Year’s. It’ll be a plane ticket ride. We’ll be working again on the 28th ’till 30th . . .back to work on the 2nd/3rd of January. We are short of days for a real vacation 😦
.

What are your plans for the Holidays? Whatever it may be, I know it will be full of love and memories lasting a lifetime. I sure wanna drop by here from time to time still πŸ™‚

How Long Has It Been?

Yikes! Still alive and kicking here! . . . . . Uuum ok, maybe the “kicking” part is not so much. I love my work and the environment I’m with. People have been really nice. But lately, I am feeling so exhausted! I feel like at times I need to escape and breathe. Yes, I need a boost of energy! πŸ™‚
.

I used to look at my little corner here in blogosphere as a retreat. But you know what I end up doing when I get home? I sleep! LOL If you could only see my eyes right now.
.

I promised myself I’d get back on it one day. And today, here I am. Not quite sure though if it’s only me I’m talking to :-). I figured I may have lost track of some of the people I’ve gotten to know. Which is expected, I guess. With so many blogs out there and with almost daily updates . . . where would my wee blog be? I feel like starting out again. No worries, though. This will serve then (just as the original purpose as to why I’ve started it in the first place) as an outlet . . . an extension of me πŸ™‚
.

I have a few new things to share and I’m very excited about it. You know, things I’m happy to have actually the time to do that is outside work. Very, very much excited about it. It just needs some organizing.
.

I really hope I can get my groove back in blogging. I miss it. And like I said, it’s a nice placeΒ  to relax the mind:-)
