Hi there! Missed me?
It’s been a long time… I’m fully aware.
The longest absence it has ever been away from my blog, ever.
4 months would be an eternity away from something this close to your heart too. Trust me.
Just in case you’ve forgotten how this blogger looks. Haha!
Nah, it’s actually just an excuse to chuck in a selfie (or two) here.
It’s a rather common excuse to say this but, I speak in all honesty – the main reason for my 4-month hiatus was because work got in the way.
Exactly 4 months ago, was the day I got promoted at the office. Since then, I’ve been too preoccupied with meeting higher expectations, adhering to even stricter deadlines, striving for perfection for not just myself but my team, and working late nights in the pursuit of building my social media career.
So when I rose to the ranks of an Account Manager, my blogging mojo took an immediate backseat, much to my dismay. Collateral damage, ya’ say? Haha.
Thank you for believing in me, Vocanic & GroupM.
I simply wasn’t able to commit juggling two of my greatest passions together – the demands of a social media strategy & management profession during the day and the diligence of blogging by nights & weekends.
As much as I enjoy being a workaholic, it dawned upon me that as I’m being overwhelmed with work, I’ve begun to forget living – my own dreams and my own hobbies.
The question is, am I able to dive deep into the latter again?
The burning passion of writing, of retelling tales from wonderful experiences and fun opportunities that huge brands have given me, putting my kaleidoscope of opinions into words, stringing sentences together and penning a story; is something I live for.
This blog is where I’ve always been running to, armed with the wildest, wandering thoughts in my mind. After all, the pen is mightier than the sword.
Or in this case of an era, the keyboard is mighter than the pen, of course. 😉

I would go on a spiel to catch up on lost times and where I left off – my ‘The Sunday Times’ episodes, my 2014 recap (it’s already the end of 2015 now!), my food & restaurant reviews, my event/party coverage, all my product reviews, my holiday travelogues, coffee hunting guides, and so much more, but that’s a challenge I’d like to undertake come this 2016.
On a lighter note, it’s Christmas! So… obviously, tis’ the season to be jolly.
I’ve got so much to share and to tell you, but in the meantime, let’s relish at lavish food, festive music, great company and spread some Christmas cheer this year end, shall we? 🙂
Despite having things really fast-paced and hectic at work, I’m lucky (and thankful!) to have amazing colleagues & bosses.
Christmas at the office.
Dear designer, why did you put those swirly borders around the photo? 🙁
