Why I haven’t been blogging lately

Blogging has taken a back seat this year which is sad and a little bit frustrating.  But I had to re-prioritize my life and take care of what’s important first. Work took a big priority at the beginning of the year when I was overloaded and also off to many interviews in between.  I put on weight and then my focus turned to losing it and staying healthy.  In between working harder than I have […]

Happy weekends…

This weekend was very busy – especially after being away last weekend with my parents in Brisbane.  But – both weekends were filled with all the good things in life. Family, old friends, laughter, good chats, delicious food and exercise.  Usually I try to wake up without an alarm at least on Sunday so that I can get a proper night’s sleep. But I wasn’t able to both these weekends and as a result, in […]

How to get Through Detours in Life

I was feeling a little down and in need of some positive energy and advice so I turned to one of my favourite vloggers (not sure if she is one?) – Marie Forleo.  I watched this clip on ‘Feeling Behind in Life’ which is EXACTLY how I was feeling yesterday. You see, I took a detour and while I try to enjoy the journey – I have been finding it difficult lately.  Especially because I’m […]

Lazy Weekend Breakfasts at Home

Is there anything better than a lazy breakfast on the weekend? My boyfriend and I usually go out on the weekends to a local café and indulge in eggs, avocado, toast and tea – all made and served by someone else.  It’s lovely and delicious but you do have to get dressed, get in the car, find a parking spot in the busy Sydney streets and walk to your breakfast which isn’t as relaxing as […]

Life Lately #4

I’m lying on my couch with my laptop propped up and a cup of ‘Relax’ Pukka tea feeling energized with all the endorphins from a great gym session.  I jog/walked for 25 minutes and did a circuit for about 15 minutes and walked out feeling great.  I also just meal prepped for the week and am feeling organized! But I think it’s really the endorphins that is helping me to feel good. Reflecting on a […]

Random Acts of Kindness

It was an unusually cold and rainy Saturday in Sydney today.  I was already feeling cold and miserable as I walked towards lunch – even though it was to meet with a lovely friend – and I thought I had to stay positive because I was in one of Sydney’s snobbiest neighbourhoods. But I was surprised today with a few random acts of kindness that were thrown my way. On my way to lunch, I […]

Taking the Pressure Off

I have always put additional pressure on myself, even as a little kid.  When I was five years old, I wanted to get top marks in my school tests (which I think pretty normal for a South Asian kid anywhere in the world!…).  In high school, I wanted to get straight As.  In university, I wanted to get high distinctions and land a great job.  At my ‘great’ job, I wanted to be the superstar.  […]

What I Learned from Living Overseas

I packed up my life and moved to Hong Kong for 2 years on the 4th April 2010 (over 7 years ago!!!).  If you ask me what my life was like there, I usually scrunch up my nose and say something like ‘it was crazy’ or ‘I didn’t like it’ or ‘I couldn’t wait to jump on that plane to come home’… You’re not likely to get a positive or enthusiastic response. To be honest, […]

How to be a Positive Person

People describe me as being a positive person so I thought I would share some tips I use to stay positive.  Of course, sometimes I also find it difficult to stay positive and upbeat about things – sometimes you just have to feel down and let yourself have a good cry.  But on most days, I think that I push myself to be positive.  It’s a habit that was passed to me be my parents […]
