Of Birthdays Reflections, Braids and Bouquets.

Oh hello, darlings :) 
It's 2014 and I'm back for a new year and ready to share this whole new place I'm in. If you don't recognize me or my writing any more, that's fine. Neither can I sometimes, but all the better.

I did a lot of growing up in my absence, or more like growing into myself. Glad to say I am becoming the person I didn't think I'd live to meet and for that I count my luck-struck stars.

Work wise over the last 2 years, I've found footing in the Malaysian super car industry I chanced upon. Some say finding ones passion and doing things you love is how you won't work a day in your life. But I found doing something you aren't naturally passionate about constructively challenging and flexes ones ability to adapt fast, while broadening a scope of interest into the otherwise ignored. And truthfully it doesn't feel like 'work.' I just feel like I'm just learning everyday, balancing what I am already good at with something new I can work towards. And maybe, that is it's own kind of underrated passion.

I still do emcee in my own time, and now I'm not depending on it to pay next months organic vegetable bills (Thought I'd say shoes, didn't you!), I find I'm starting to love it again. Same with modelling, even if its only for my photographer friends lenses or the occasional print ad; It's where I am cosy and it's nostalgic as that was how I spent the last of my teens and it bought me my independence since 18. Though I wasn't quite sure what to do with that much freedom then, I only look back in fondness. I had more than my share of proverbial cake and washed it down with every experience, so now I'm just happy I get to re-live it at 25. 

Will try not to drown you with words. We're just stepping back into this kiddy pool  together, after all. I will be posting more, maybe, sharing the little things I like looking and thinking back upon. Like the early days of blogging where people played with words because pictures couldn't load on TM dial up. So if you don't fancy that, it's a good time to say goodbye. 
It's a new year and with every wilted bouquet, blooms a new day.
 Adieu 2013 and Hello 2014!
