thank God it’s Friday!

There is something seriously wrong with me these days. This morning, I spent almost an hour going through my meagre wardrobe looking for something that would fit. Gaining weight is proving to be a constant source of frustration. I need more Zumba sessions and more discipline to lose my belly fats (from pregnancy) and some … Continue reading

here i go again

(This is a repost from my other blog. For the past weeks, i have created 2 new blogs with posts about my happiness project. I wanted to start fresh. I wanted some anonymity. But now i’m getting confused trying to maintain 3 blogs.) Here I go again. It is tax season and i’m stressed and … Continue reading

chasing dreams

merryli, merrily we roll along chasing dreams. 🙂

Oftentimes, we make desirable discoveries by accident. It could be fate, destiny, good fortune or sheer luck. Sometimes we stumble upon things and ideas that are fascinating or entertaining. They tickle our fancies. Some are entertaining, others informative. Some are reminiscent of the past, others are suggestive of the future. We trip over something that … Continue reading

not the best of times

Here I go again, waiting for some miracle to happen. Somewhere along the way of the busy work season, getting and being pregnant, and dealing with one family health woe to another, I lost steam.

2011 in review

If it were a cable car, it would take about 43 trips to carry that many people. Click here to see the … Continue reading

a farewell note

This week, two colleagues bade us goodbye. Since I got back, almost all of the staff I worked with previously have moved on to other job opportunities. It’s quite sad and heartbreaking to see people go, especially those whom you have shared fond memories and bonded with over difficult and stressful client moments. But, realistically, … Continue reading

my current mantra

Hello blog, its been a while! I’ve been using a lot of brainpower the past month that I didn’t have enough brain energy left to write. But now i’m back to my musings and self-reflection ( at least, the part I am comfortable sharing). It’s been more than a month since I commenced my new … Continue reading
