So for the first time ever, I spent my birthday on vacation. I've always wanted to do this and this year, I did! My 30th birthday on the 11th of the month was well-spent in Hong Kong with my good friend, Lou.

It felt different and strange but also fun and new and hopefully a good omen to the start of my 30s. I am 30. It's hard to believe.

Well this is new. I'm all packed. I'm taking a trip for my 30th birthday and it's strange that I won't be with family as I celebrate my birthday. Instead, I'm going to Hong Kong with a good friend of mine, Lou. It's been five years since I've been to Hong Kong. The last time I was there, I was with my friend, Lee-Ann. And it was a good time. For some strange reason, I chose to spend my 30th birthday in Hong Kong this year. But hey, why not, right?

29 has been bananas. 2016 in general, was crazy for everyone but I'd like to think that my 29th year, I guess, was a year of discovery, to a certain degree. There's still so much more I don't know about myself and there's still so much more I want to know. And I hope that this is the year where I start to, I guess, like myself a little more than I usually do. Don't get me wrong, this is not some self loathing post.

I'm very very grateful for everything that's happened to me these past 29 years. I guess I'm just really looking forward to 30s, my 30s and hoping life really does begin then. Not that I haven't been living. Perhaps that I'm more mindful of the way I live and more generous to myself and to others, kinder to myself and to others.

Thanks again to everyone for sticking around. It's been slower than usual on the posting front and the commenting front and i want to say thanks to all of you for being there this past year. Au revoir 29. Hello, 30.

It's cliche but time really does fly so quickly. We're done with January and that's 1/12th of the year 2017 down. It's pretty insane. January was insane in general for me, too.

Finding myself half the time in Jakarta (for the first time) and then half the time in Singapore with friends and family celebrating the new year (both Gregorian calendar and Lunar calendar ones) and just generally trying to be positive about the new year ahead. Read more...Collapse )
