Festive Seasons Are For Children

Just when you think you’re done with the Christmas celebrations, you realise it’s Chinese New Year!!! It’s the year of the Ox and apparently it’s suppose to be a more stable year for me a Rabbit, which is strange since the plans for me is one full of changes so maybe it’ll all not happen in the end 🙂 We’ll see what the year of the Ox holds for me.

Meanwhile, I’ve come to the conclusion to why people have children … it’s so the festive seasons are that much more fun 🙂 Over the last Christmas, I’ve come to realise that without the little people in my life, the festive seasons are that much less fun. Watching them open presents and let’s all admit it, they get the coolest stuff too. Who doesn’t want a baby doll that actually eats and poops? Or even the new lego set?

Imagine Christmas, Chinese New Year, Easter, any celebrations for that matter without children. It’ll just be the old fogies reminiscing about the good old times and pretending they’re really interested in each other 🙂

With that, Gong Xi Fa Cai everyone, may the year of the Ox be one filled with lots of children teaching us adults how to do it right 🙂

Blogs, Themes and Privacy

I was out with a couple of friends the other day and when one of them realised I’m maintaining a blog, he promptly asked what’s the theme of it? Well, if you’ve been reading my blog, you’ll realise my theme is me. He didn’t quite agree that’s a theme and I know what he means but unlike other blogs, I don’t specially focus on food, kids, photography, cars, design, reviews … I kinda write about what I’m up to, what’s exciting me, what’s bothering me … so in essence it’s about me, me and me :p

MeMeAnd me

Then another friend asked why is it that I never write about my husband? Well, that’s because he has asked me not to. So I write of him in a third party kind of way when he is kinda involved in my story and he is referred to as ‘my husband’ and if you don’t know us, you won’t know his name. No posting of his pictures as well.

my husband

At least not ones that he’s recognizable in. He’s just not quite ready to have what I think of him all over on the world wide web. Even though, there is only about say 5 people who read this blog … all of whom know him :p but I respect his privacy nonetheless. With the other people in my life, I’m also sensitive to their privacy. After all, while I’m all ready to bare my soul for all to read, they may not be so unless they have public blogs of their own, I won’t refer to them by their names either.

Self-centered and narcissistic? Maybe, I don’t know actually … this blog is a little journal that’s constantly evolving as I am and the main reason for it, is to keep family and friends who don’t see me all the time, updated with my life. It is also a concerted effort on my part to not discuss volatile topics like politics, religion, senior management at work and such, despite my strong opinions on these things.

Mainly because this blog is for happy inspirational moments so that I can fulfill my life’s mission to be part of the world’s solutions rather than problems.

I’m not even sure if this post is necessary but I thought since it’s about me, it fits with the theme 🙂 So if there’s anything else you’d like to read about, leave me a comment coz if you know me, you’ll know I have an opinion about everything 😛
