A few days ago Sabrina B from Malay Mail asked if she could interview me for her special report on selfies. She said it is one of my forte. And I’m like…me? Selfie? My forte? *shock face*. It has been a while since I appeared in any media coverage 😛 . Today, I am on Malay Mail page 7! A half page mention with a full blown photo of me doing the jumping-for-joy shot. Ohhh that is what they called, eh? It is a part of Malay Mail Special Report: Dying For Selfies.
Is it weird that I was more excited with the whole Street Love ❤ rebranding three months ago than I am now that everything is live? That is because I have been planning for this for so long and since I can get bored very easily, I got bored along the way no thanks to draggy designers that promises things but never deliver. It took me a few months to settle everything else, finally sit down to think of what I want, what I envisioned for Street Love, and to actually sitting down doing it.
Sometime end of January, I was approached by CompareHero.my, a financial comparison website in Malaysia on contributing my thoughts to their upcoming Valentine’s Day article. Now, usually I do not do this but this time round I agreed with no promises as I wanted to see the questions in advance. You know, just in case I have agreed and I was not able to answer the questions properly? lol
So the article was out a few days ago 🙂
2015, what a year for me.
As usual at this time of the year end, everyone in the blogosphere will be reflecting their life for the past one year, resolution for the next year as well as what they hope or expect for the following year. My last year in review was 2013. I wanted to do one for 2014 but I was not inspired to reveal my 2014 so I skipped it. Just yesterday I had the sudden thoughts to tell you all about my 2015. It has been a challenging year for me. Not what I expected but it is what it is.
I battled with depression. I’m still battling with depression. It is a topic not many will talk about. I do not talk about it as I did not even know I had depression. Let me rephrase that. I did not even know I am in a severe depression. I am able to tell you about it now that I am feeling 30% better compared to the me 3 months ago.
Remember the review I did for DHC Deep Cleansing Oil and DHC Mild Soap back in July 2013? The story on how this mini appearance in the product booklet begin when I met up with the brand people from Watsons (exclusive retailer for DHC in Malaysia), where she handed me a bottle of Deep Cleansing Oil and a bar of Mild Soap to try and for review. Then came a small request to provide a testimonial for their upcoming DHC Double Cleansing Essentials Booklet.
It was a rush project. Initially the brand people requested for one liner testimonial but she also told me I can do a longer one if I wanted to. Being a thorough product reviewer all these while, you bet I gave her a longer testimonial 😀
Instead of naming this post at “Best of 2013” I’ve decided to named it as 2013 At It’s Best 😀 . I like to be slightly different from everybody else. Afterall, everyone else will be posting up their Best of 2013 and looking forward to entering 2014.
It took me quite a while trying to go back time and recall what is my best time, advise, decision, purchase, discovery, event and so on. The list below will be events that I would want to remember.
