Year-end trip to amazing Taiwan!


September 10, 2012

Went to visit a dear friend who is recovering from an operation. I had toyed with the idea of getting her a passé get-well hamper with flowers; but decided against it. I mean she is a flower arrangement expert and so is her 8-year old daughter! Anything less then decent would only embarrass the giver aka me. Instead I went over armed with ohh-so-nutritious-but-ohh-so-yucky-tasting tonics.

She looks good for someone who has just went through some thing so major. Most of all, it’s her strong mental ability to overcome the illness that bowed me over. I am not sure what or how I would feel/be, if I were her.

Anyhow, the irony is…instead of bringing her flowers, I left her home with a beautiful table arrangement! She’s got so many of them all over her huge living room, making the place smell so fresh and heavenly. Now, I wish I have the patience and eye for such artistic work.

In December, we went to France, Paris...because we couldn't stand not seeing our best friends who have moved back there.

In June, we went on a long holiday to Bali to make up for the loss in our Japan trip.

April 8, 2011

This is my Friday morning zen moments and quiet time, before I start my day. It’s been a month since I left my job of 5 years. What can I say? It’s been the most wonderful one month! My health improved, my emotional well being upped the scale, I am always filled with happy and positive thoughts. No longer would I flare up at the littlest thing, instead I would have the patience to step back, calm down and think things through before reacting. Of course there are a few incidences where things still gets to me, but overall, I am so much less short fused. I am happy!

Quoting my bestie, I really should have taken the plunge years ago! I’ve been slow to recognized that by staying on in such a toxicated place, have taken such a toll on my overall well being and at the expense of my family and loved ones. Well, I am embarking on a new phrase in life and already reaping the fruits. Things can only get better!

Happy weekend everyone!
