Hello. Hi! Is anyone still there? God. Has it been almost 7 months since my last blog? Why am I even surprised in the first place…? I had a lot of good feedback from my previous blog post about being kinder to ourselves in this century and apart from working on my music and performing more, (with a touch of being lazy), I’ve actually taken my … Continue reading 011: Why Did I Get Lazy (And What Happened the Past 7 Months)?
For the past few months, I thought that I was doing pretty well… I’ve somehow adjusted living away from my parents, being at peace with my issues at home and at work, and just having taken each day step-by-step; facing each bump on the road with a deep breath and a self-push forward. Though I admit, there would be these minute moments where I would … Continue reading 010: How Can We Be Kinder to Ourselves in this 21st Century?
It’s been a month since my last article but I’m back with a worthwhile realization – I’ve been accumulating what I’ve wanted to say for the past few months like a serial hoarder trying to find justification in each thing that she collects.

While we were waiting to board the plane, my parents reminisced on their first trip to our country’s northern neighbour (…they … Continue reading 007: Where Four Days in Hong Kong (and Macau) Left Me?
Before I spent two weeks in Valencia, I stayed at the Spanish capital for a while exploring it in all its glory; from roaming around its lively barrios to breathing in its culture through eclectic food and art. Day One 8:00 A.M. My plane from Abu Dhabi landed in Madrid on the morning of July 12, 2017. Once I found my way through the airport, … Continue reading 004: How Did I Spend My Two Days in Madrid?
As a wise man (or was it a woman?) used to say, our greatest enemy is ourselves. Following the launch of my blog, you could not imagine how euphoric I was feeling. After months of just planning it out in my head, I finally took action and did something about it. What I didn’t anticipate was the pressure that this blog was going to bring … Continue reading 003: Why Self-Doubt is Such a Pain in the…
