2014.

Bad news for you guys on New Year’s day, 
how much meaner can I get hahhaha.

But the biggest bitch is not me,
its my phone.
I’m using an S2 and it decided to die on me by loosening the charger port such that I can’t charge my phone. :/
I’ve sent it for repair even tho the warranty is up.
Wonder how much it will cost me.

So yeah, I needa rearrange and collate pics that I took from Chiangmai through the family cam and sis phone,
before I can update you guys.

Meanwhile, 
HAPPY NEW YEAR! 
May you and all your loved ones be in the pink of health, always in abundance and filled with happiness^^

How did you celebrate NYE?
I got invited to a hotel party teehee.
First time countdown outside!
Although I only knew like 3 people AT FIRST, it’s always nice to get to know and be with fun and nice people.
(But at first I was like, why am I celebrating with people who don’t matter? Then I realised, no one treats me like I matter enough to ask me out to celebrate with them anyway, and Aaroson was kind enough to extend the offer so WHY NOT?)

It was a reallllly small room at Traders’ Hotel 
but we made do.
Drank and played games, laughed a lot and everyone was shouting and high
BUT YAY FUNN!

Cheers to a good year ahead!


Found a really good link with meaningful New Year resolutions, check the whole list here.
I’m just gonna highlight some and add some personal perspectives.

1. Don’t neglect yourself. You are the one person you can neither leave nor escape, so invest in your relationship with yourself. Take yourself out for coffee, sit yourself down and get to know yourself.

This has got to be the number 1 on my list, 
and it should be on yours too!
Many a times, we focus too much on other people that we forget our own needs. 
I struggle with this a lot, and too much, I take on others’ problems as mine. 
I fight hard to build and mend and maintain relationships with people, but barely have time for myself,
always envisioning how my me time would be like, but never fulfilling.
Personal time alone is important. 
If we don’t know ourselves, how can we live our life? How do we treat others, or know how to react to life circumstances?
Our decisions are based largely on our experiences, what we know and our emotions. 
Getting to know ourselves would make us feel less lost and realise that life can be simple.

2. Stop being so mean to yourself. We say some terrible things to ourselves we would never say to others. Learn to be kind to yourself.

slut.
whore.
useless.
stupid.
dumb.
bitch.

These are just some of the things I’ve heard myself say to myself.
We are all, no doubt, our worst critic. 
Words have power, words kill.
The things that you say to yourself, you grow to believe. 
You hold on to them like a sutra, 
you short change yourself, 
you feel undeserving.
But darling, you should know better than anyone else;
that we all hurt, we’ve made mistakes, we bent and almost broke.
Instead of harping on all the negativity, on things that we cannot change, 
look forward.
REMEMBER, THE WORLD DOESN’T REVOLVE AROUND YOU.
NOT EVERYTHING IS YOUR FAULT.
You are beautiful, and by that I mean that you are human. 
A breathing bleeding hurting fragile yet strong human being,


3. Leave the country or go somewhere you’ve never been before. If you don’t have money, look into doing charity work abroad, some programs will sponsor you, otherwise you would be surprised where you can get with a bus ticket.

I think I can link this back to my blog title: Adventures for the weakhearted
Most of the time when we hear the word “Adventure”, 
we think of something bold, difficult to accomplish, for the brave only to attempt.
I won’t say my life is that exciting and I’m not all that courageous, 
but I’d like to have my own good time with life too, 
I think it’s important to live, not just exist.

Going overseas always gives new perspectives, 
makes you feel new things, 
meet new people.
You also feel accomplished, 
ticking other country off the globe or list of must-visit places.
A lot of times, you discover new things about yourself too and get some time to reflect on your life.

I just came back from Chiangmai so the feelings and memories are still fresh from the oven.
The trip brought the family closer, 
and allowed me to meetup with my Chiangmai family again.
It’s the most amazing, to have friends in a different country.
You just feel warm and fuzzy inside,
to meet people you thought you’d nvr see again.

To address the second part, I totally agree with just hopping on a random bus and see where it takes you to.
Just wander and go on a lil adventure.
Check out a cafe you nvr knew existed,
sit at a park that isn’t in your neighbourhood.
Trust me, it feels more than good.

7. Cut bad people out of your life. These are the people that are always taking from you, whether emotionally or physically. You deserve reciprocity. You need to surround yourself with people that make you feel awesome, so you can be awesome. Every person around you is someone that you chose to keep around in your life, and it will always be your decision to keep them away. Letting go is difficult, but you can always find people that lift you up.

Don’t whine.
I know this is difficult,
trust me, I’ve been here/there more than a couple of times.
But this is essential. Necessary. Of utmost importance 
because it goes back to Number 1.
Think of yourself first.
Why keep those who are always hurting you around?
They aren’t helping you grow, they are pulling you down. 
Know what you deserve.
You deserve the best, you deserve what you need.
You’d find that letting the wrong ones go, frees a space for the right people to come in and make your life so much better than before.
Set yourself free. 

Hahah, okay.
Enough philosophy for the night,
Going back to work tmr, (holding my sigh in)

My resolution: To apply lessons learnt in 2013 to 2014 and make 2014 the best year yet.
