It snowed in London a few days ago and I was excited like a little girl at work. The sight of snow is fascinating as I don't see it often here or anywhere that I have lived before. So for me, 2017 certainly begins with a bit of surprising love in the air <3
After winter kicked in, it always took me a lot more effort to get out of the bed, to dress up in layers - fully geared and then finally rushing out of the house without missing this and that. Nowadays, the beanie lives permanently on my head. Its tricky to look good in winter - it makes you eat all the time and you just can't step out without looking like a walking dumpling.
While packing for my trip to Taiwan next week for Chinese New Year, I discovered this pair of vintage glasses somewhere deep in my stash. This is a legit pair of glasses with prescription lenses for long-sightedness and astigmatism. This reminded me the times in Singapore when my buddy and I would travel to one of the oldest optical shops in town and spent the whole afternoon just trying out glasses. Fun times. Speaking of my trip back home, I'm truly excited but weirdly nervous at the same time. I haven't been back for 2 years! Unfortunately, It will be a short trip considering I have so many family and relatives to meet and catch up... Can't wait though.
Personally, I think I am getting better day by day and I know that this can't happen without positivity, confidence and belief. A lot of self-motivation too. Do watch Chef's Table on Netflix if you need some inspiration and motivation in your life. It especially relates to creative professionals as it makes you think and reflect deeply on your passion and love for your art. Or maybe you call it a job. Now, we work hard and we learn, yes. But one day, can we all break free, go beyond the limits and be proud of what we do?
The storytelling and cinematography simply blew me away too.
As for now, I hope 2017 will be a great year for everyone. We seriously need more love and kindness... C
