Whoa! I'm officially a foodie grub (hopefully just for a week though). So for my recent posts, I will be ditching the day-to-day count for a while. I felt like it put a somewhat rigid structure to the writing, so I'll go with the flow for the next few months. I'm still counting the days … Continue reading The Newbie: Series 4
Hey there. Happy Sunday and welcome back here! My 3rd week was pretty ho-hum, so I merged most of what happened in Week 4 in this series. Enjoy! Day 15-20 I didn’t get up to much apart from cooking and classes. Oh did I mention, I have a lecturer that walks like Fitzgerald from Scandal. … Continue reading TheNewbie: Series 3
Ding Ding!! Series 2 Let's just say I'm gradually getting better at keeping up with writing. Day 8 *Sobs* I can’t find a church. Okay let me confess, I haven’t actively looked for a church, I wanted to just stay in bed and connect to my church’s online service. I think that’s what it’ll be … Continue reading TheNewbie: Series 2
Hey Hey!! Welcome here..so I haven't been very consistent with writing or posting here (and I apologize yet again)... I'm seriously hoping to get better at this. TheNewbie is a series on my adventures during my postgraduate study in Athens, Greece, yes Greece. During my time here as a newbie, I’d keep the blog updated … Continue reading TheNewbie: Series 1
Myth -> You only live once?
Truth -> You live everyday, you only die once.
This definitely resonates with me. I had a close experience to losing someone dear to me this weekend. In that moment when I started to think about what to do, I realised how helpless I was. Most importantly, I realised how it’s been easier to chase empty shadows than impact meaningfully. Instantly, nothing else mattered, work, church, anger, money, etc.
I quickly dropped everything else that seemed important, and took time out to spend with my dear dad (I’ll write about that shortly). I couldn’t bear the thought of losing him, but I quickly realised life is much more than moving through.
Life is living, and living is about people!
Please read and enjoy my cousin’s post on her close shave with death. I’m grateful for the victory over death. Halleluyah!
Friday is my best day of the week. Don’t ask me why because for the life of me, I cannot give you a clear cut answer. But I mostly allude my crush on Friday as the aftermath of primary school assembly. I vividly remember my favorite marching song, “Monday we go to school,Tuesday we go to school, Wednesday we go to school,Thursday we go to school, Friday WE PACK OUR LOAD, because tomorrow morning Saturday no school”… Are you thinking what I’m thinking?
Fast-forward to 2017.A typical Friday starts on an exhilarated “high” for me . my shift at work starts by 12noon and my radio show starts by 1pm. Enough time for me to lounge.
After taking my bath and enjoying a light breakfast, I dilly dallied in front of my wardrobe, eyebrows knit together in total concentration as I browsed through my clothes collection. At the conclusion of…

Its 10:28pm and I have just arrived home. I reflect upon my day. First it was the coffee machine that messed up my top, thankfully my blazer covered the patch. Then the heated meeting we had that lasted for about 3hours. I just couldn't make sense out of having to sit at meetings without meaningful … Continue reading Jar of Gratitude
Hmmm 2016, it's been a long year. I barely even had time to blog. I struggled to balance my time properly and I take all the blame. One of the things I love about new years is the opportunity to reflect on past year events, and rewrite a new year. Key plan this year is … Continue reading So long , Farewell!! (My 2016 review)
