"Day 16: What’s in your bag"

I was acutally really looking forward to this blog! heehee. I have hardly any upper arm strength so i try to keep my purse as light as possible. Also i constantly switch from one purse to another depending on my outfit or the occassion so it's less of a hassle if i have less stuff.

1. Louis Vuitton vernis wallet
2. Louis Vuitton pencil case which i use as my makeup case
3. Ipod touch with the cutest bun case from my sister
4. my keys
5. bliss hand cream
6. Blackberry bold
7. 2012 Agenda

The agenda is actually a recent addition to my purse. My schedule has gotten way too packed that i tend to stress myself out if i don't prioritize. And so that's basically about all that i carry, What's in your bag?

"Day 10: A photo of your favourite place to eat"

I'm not really a picky eater and i like to try new things and new places so i don't really have a favourite place to eat. I do however love, love, LOVE korean food. I don't think i've ever had a bad experience with korean food. The prices are decent and i love all the little side dishes that come with it. You could get a somewhat healthy meal for just under $10. I would definitely love to go to korea and try authentic korean food and experience their culture 


"Day 9: A photo of the item you last purchase"

After excessively spending over christmas, new years and my birthday im stuck with nothing but bills. But this is where gift cards come in handy!! heehee although super broke i was able to get myself an agenda with my $7 chapters card. [= With so many errands to run everyday this little guy keeps me on track and seriously helps reduce stress. Probably the most useful $7 ever!!

"Day 7: Your dream wedding"

As much as i still believe in fairytales and all the perfect romantic moments in life believe it or not i don't actually have my dream wedding planned out. Even after working 4 years at a bridal boutique it didn't contribute to my special day. Did you know that on average weddings cost approx $35, 000? All i know is i want my wedding to be grand! hopefully a good budget of $75, 000 heehee. yes i better marry rich or start saving!! To me personally when it comes to a wedding, i think it is something that should be planned between me and my fiance keeping in mind that my opinions are more important.

Just because i don't have a solid dream wedding book to follow doesn't mean i don't have any idea. [= I would love for my wedding to tell a story, the story of our love life. How the princess found her prince charming (in my case, my charming prince) and how they end up living happily ever after. But don't worry, i'll keep you reader's posted when that day comes!!

"Day 6: A photo of an animal you’d love to keep as a pet"

awww how could you not want to keep him 

"Day 5: A photo of yourself two years ago"

Hrm... 2 years ago i was how old? Twenty-One...oh what a lovely age to be, to be finally legal all around the world *woot woot. Although i've accomplished many things along the way at twenty one i still felt i was really far from where i wanted to be. I've reached a stepping stone, so what have i done since then?

"Day 4: Your favorite photograph of your best friend"


This is Amanda and she is one of my bestest friend in the world (ya i know i used bestest) but neways, our friendship goes wayyyy back....16 years to be exact. I still remember the day i met her, i was 7 and she was 6. Our parents were having a house gathering, this was my first time over at her house so i brought along my little stuff lion which i still have stashed away somewhere in my room.

16 years and counting we've grown to be quite similar but yet have each other's differences. I don't know how i would have overcome my difficult times without her ♥

p.s a little tribute to a good friend who also has his own blog @ (http://derrickfranciswong.blogspot.com/)

ahhahah this is for you derrick since you didnt send me a pic =P!!


"Day 2: A photo of something you ate today."

So normally on a tuesday my lunch isnt very exciting either take out or leftovers so i chose to exclude it. Instead i decided to take the initative to make myself dinner. [= After a good amount of time chopping and cutting and seasoning and frying....tada! here it is, i made myself a nice healthy meal. My only complaint would have been i really wanted home made greek dressing but i realized i ran out of greek seasoning once i got home and was too tired to go back out to buy some. But hey, points for trying right?

greek salad with seasoned chicken breast!!

The 30 day blog challenge

So i've decided to take up the 30 day blog challenge! Never really thought i'd get myself into something like this but after reading it on another blog i thought it'd be pretty interesting to try and do it myself. I've listed the topics at the end of this post so feel free to take up this challenge yourself!

"Day 1: A photo of youself and a description of how your day was"

Monday's are usually the most dreaded day for me which im sure many other full timers would agree. However this morning was a bit different, i got a wake up call from a very good friend. He works as a security guard so his hours are opposite of mine; me working the standard business hours and his being all night shifts our friendship have basically turned to bbm updates. lol so it was nice to get a call, other than that nothing much rather special about my day at work. ]= After work i had a dinner/ catch up gossip date night with one of my girlfriends. We honestly talk about everything and anything and trust me this date night was LONG overdue with me doing most of the talking we ended up hot poting for a good 3 hours.

On a side note not only is today the first day of the 30 day blog challenge but it's the first day that my boyfriend has been gone. He will be gone for a month pursuring his career to be a pilot. Although it hasn't really kicked in yet but im sure i'll miss him very much.  So what perfect timing for this blog challenge to come in!! I'll be able to focus more on myself while counting down the days till he's back. And hopefully between my work and social life i'll still have time to keep posting day to day.

best picture i could find as of right now...

Happy Birthday to Me



So when the clock strikes twelve six days into the new year i am proud to say that i've reached the age of 23. Like many i've experienced the challenges of life; had a few heart breaks, worked various part time jobs and recently survived the many years of education. I can say that without these ups and downs it wouldn't have mold me into who i am today. Not saying that im perfect (because no one really is) just saying that these events helped build some character.

So here's a little recap...

Growing up i was blessed to have a loving and supportive family. Given the opportunity to take almost any lessons possible ranging from swimming to skating, painting to gymnastics, mathematics to languages etc. i've picked up a few skills that helped me overcome a few bumps along the way. I went through school with an amazing group of friends whom luckily enough,some i still keep in touch with.

And now finally i graduated with a Fashion Design major, went on a 1 month journey reconnecting with family half way acrossed the world, lived a memorable week in Hong Kong, started this blog (heehee), started my first full time, and celebrated a milestone with a special someone here i am....2012 slowly piecing my life together.

Twenty-Three years old i am grateful to be alive; To have met people along the way that have made a difference. I am extremely thankful for my family, friends, and my readers (Quite frankly i initially started this blog for a job application which later blossomed to personal writing.) And so where do i go from here you ask? I'm finally going to take my own words that "age is nothing but a number" and continue to grow, learn and laugh at what lies ahead. Life is more fun with a few giggles.

♥♥
